    RX 480 disappointing ... what next ?

    All I can say to this little temper tantrum is wow.. All TPU members should now bow at your feet and worship you as the end all, be all God of computer technology. Chanting "Praise to CDA" and tossing all the $1000 CPU's they can find before you as an offering to your absolute greatness and...

    AMD Ryzen 7 1800X 3.6 GHz

    Not sure why lack of integrated graphics is a negative here. If you want that, you buy an APU chip.

    Zyxel EMG3425-Q10A.

    Anyone have any experience with this router, or company in general? My ISP sent me one after I upgraded my plan and curious if it's a decent router or should I just go buy one?

    Is AMD Ryzen for you?

    I never buy a product at launch. I will wait about 6 months for all the bugs to be worked out and optimizations completed. But, I will definitely be going Ryzen before the end of the year.

    How relevant are VRMs (phases) for AM4 motherboards?

    VRM's are always relevant across any platform. If you having cleans table, steady power that is.

    Is it the people here or just how people are?

    TPU has become more and more toxic over the nearly ten years I have been hanging around it. But, so has every other forum I have seen. It's just a sign of the times. People have no tolerance, no respect for one another anymore. It's sad, but true. That said, I still find most people here are...

    Real problem overclocking rx480

    As someone who has owned 2 MSI Gaming 970 mobo's, I can tell you you are pushing that board to its very limits. It has cheaper 6 phase VRM's that don't handle a lot of power. I can post a pic of a burned VRM on one of mine to illustrate that fact. That 480 being a 6 pin connector is drawing...

    RX 480 disappointing ... what next ?

    It would help to see you system specs. Also, that PSU only has 40amps on the 12v rail, which is pretty weak. That aside, it's most likely a bad unit. It happens to everyone who builds pc's. Just RMA it.

    Computer Powers on but then Turns off Right Away

    Check your Corsair H100i and make sure that the pump is working. I had a problem like this a while back and the pump had failed, letting the CPU overheat and shut down almost instantly. If you put your ear to the heatsink/pump assembly you should hear water gurgling and the pump noise. Or, if...

    Best software for maxing a GPU temp?

    Furmark is the best for maxing Temps. But be warned, it will destroy a card that is weak or has stock cooling.

    Do you use the little spatula with thermal paste?

    HS! I thought I was the only person who did that!!! :toast: I use about a half grain on the CPU, then dab it with my finger till it has a very thin coat all over. Then I do the same on the HSF/waterblock.

    Do you use the little spatula with thermal paste?

    I use them for small dies like GPU's and bridge chips. Those spreaders are almost perfect size for such things. For CPU'S, I have my own special method for applying paste.
