    Ryzen 1700 Pins Bent

    I used a credit card to straighten my 939 socket cpu when I did this ages ago, pins are pretty tough as long as you dont bend at extreme angles. Ever since that incident I do a quick prime run before removing coolers on ZIF and twist the cooler a bit before attempting removal.

    MSI Issues Clarification on Next-Gen AMD CPU Support on 300-series Motherboards

    Yes clearly I am the asshole for expecting customer service to provide accurate information, and just to be clear I'm not blaming the CSR in the email I'm blaming MSI for not training their CSR's properly. When you work in customer support your job is to give accurate factual information to the...

    MSI Issues Clarification on Next-Gen AMD CPU Support on 300-series Motherboards

    I'm anti giant corporations with CSR's that lack basic customer service training because paying and training them would take money from profits.

    MSI Issues Clarification on Next-Gen AMD CPU Support on 300-series Motherboards

    So let me get this straight MSI has terrible support and their support reps inform a customer with incorrect information they pulled out of their ass and somehow the people reporting the information given by terrible support are in the wrong ? Oh right I forgot we are supposed to defend the...

    NVIDIA: Turing Adoption Rate 45% Higher Than Pascal, 90% of Users Buying Upwards in Graphics Product Tiers

    That's not even an argument, technological advances where always difficult if it was easy we would have had 970's in 2005 new processes and fabs have always cost more. Maybe the 20xx series is a fluke like some of the other cards on that chart with the wildly inflated price and the 30xx series...

    NVIDIA: Turing Adoption Rate 45% Higher Than Pascal, 90% of Users Buying Upwards in Graphics Product Tiers

    Your chart simply proves my point the average cost of the top nvidia gpu over the last 18 generations in 2017 dollars was $635 the only tricks being played are by Nvidia not my mind. Nvidia's own chart highlights the problem that $500~$700 range is now 1000$ + range

    NVIDIA: Turing Adoption Rate 45% Higher Than Pascal, 90% of Users Buying Upwards in Graphics Product Tiers

    Remember when the new gen of cards beat the old gen of cards in every category/price point yet where still about the same price ? Nvidia is trying to pretend that old generations of cards dont depreciate just because they over produced due to the mining craze and now they expect consumers to...

    NVIDIA: Turing Adoption Rate 45% Higher Than Pascal, 90% of Users Buying Upwards in Graphics Product Tiers

    I really dont understand the posts here defending prices going up across the board. If the price for new cards increased as much as the 10xx to 20xx series every gen GPU's should cost 10's of thousands of dollars by now. Nvidia is using their performance gap over AMD to make as much money as...

    FFX HD Remaster on Zen is stuttering a ton... but Intel system no issues? Can anyone help?

    All the FF games that where ported to PC from the old console versions stutter, they all use some internal frame limiter bullcrap that causes nothing but issues there are a few fan patches that help but dont fix it completely.

    Want to help a beginner troubleshoot Fx8350 OC?

    sync your NB and HT to 2200mhz and try 1.350v ~ 1.375v with LLC on extreme, sometimes more voltage just makes things worse on the FX chips in my experience I easily got my 8320 to 4.2ghz on a cheaper 970 version of that board just by setting multiplier and Vcore it was AVX linpac stable.

    What do you believe is the best bang for your buck video card?

    I still use my RX480 4gb I got before the mining craze and it plays most things well with high settings at 1080p, even Star Citizen runs rather well all things considered.

    Microsoft May be Closer Than Ever to Importing Xbox Games Infrastructure to PC

    The recent ports of the Forza games where really well done DX12 and all but Microsoft store is a hot mess. Trying to download F7 wound up using over 250gb of data to install a 70gb game for me. Until Microsoft figures out how to make windows 10 and the Microsoft store function at least as well...

    Sound card upgrade

    When I bought my Ryzen system I got a Sound blaster Z for under $100 because no more PCI slots for my X-Fi. Sound quality is the same or better as the old card X-Fi and much better than the onboard, the Edifier R1280T 's are definitely nice enough to hear the difference, I have a pair myself...

    Thermaltake and Mayhems Fighting Over "Pastel" Trademark in the UK

    Do they have a trademark for coloured as well

    What the best thermal paste in 2019?

    I use MX-4 because it doesn't separate like Arctic silver and its pretty cheap. Everything but garbage OEM paste and liquid metal are within 3* of each other in most tests that I've seen so I don't see the point in spending more money.
