    NZXT Announces Kraken X-3 and Z-3 Series AIO Liquid Coolers

    the LCD on the AIO for temp readouts is actually pretty damn cool, but i'd want it as a hardware sensor and not relying on software - look at how bad corsair did there with only THIS MONTH getting temp readings working on ryzen 3000 series CPU's in iCue (so it wasnt possible to set fan curves)

    And yet they still rely on CAM so they're useless

    3700X Memory Issue

    thats what my primary PC is, ITX with full sized GPU. I dont need half a dozen PCI-E slots, by the time i want faster integrated wifi it'll be board upgrade time anyway.

    Pure 12V PSU Standard, Named ATX12VO, Debuts Later This Year

    I can see this working out if the new mobos can be made to work with older PSU's via an adaptor, and the new PSU's can work in a modern case (i'm hoping they do ATX, but make them shorter)

    replacing a Q9650

    Why not just get a regular ITX desktop from an older gen? I've got a 3550 and 4790 in old dell ITX's that run awesome as home servers/HTPCs my brother just got one with a 3470S, and the overall wattage of that system is tiny

    Ram starts at stock 2133 on first reboot cycle after psu change

    ^ what zach said your systems booting with incompatible settings for your RAM, so its resetting to safe defaults

    Can I use my G403 wireless on powerplay mousepad when it's on ?

    the charging disk comes WITH the powerpad, not with the mouse

    Can I use my G403 wireless on powerplay mousepad when it's on ?

    Yes it is, G403 and G703 are 100% the same mouse with just a rename for official support Trust me, i own all 3 mice and the powerplay pad All mice on the pad require you to swap out the little weight disc with the charging disc in it, which controls the charging (so only one mouse at a time)...

    Can I use my G403 wireless on powerplay mousepad when it's on ?

    Whats the question here? The powerplay pad with G403/703/903 is designed to be powered on all the time with the mouse on it

    XMP not working on Ryzen 7 2700x

    raise the voltage, reboot, enable XMP, reboot again maybe use the memory try it in the BIOS, and ignore the XMP - MSI's 'try it' settings were really good for me, for various RAM I mean, dont forget you could actually have faulty RAM here too, its not likely but it can happen

    XMP not working on Ryzen 7 2700x

    the XMP1 2933 doesnt work for me either, 3200/XMP2 was needed. Focus on that, maybe manually setting RAM voltage to 1.35v

    XMP not working on Ryzen 7 2700x

    Probably need to update (or less likely but still possible, downgrade) your BIOS to get it working I've got that exact same RAM on a 2700x and had no issues on MSI, ASUS or Aourus boards, but i *have* ran into BIOS versions that had broken XMP Oh and try different RAM slots, some pairs clock...

    New rtx2070 super not performing as expected

    and how is that going to increase FPS at all? I get that it's his argument and not yours, but what the hell

    New rtx2070 super not performing as expected

    I'm with newtekie, your CPU probably *is* the bottleneck - intels where you go if you want 240FPS action, ryzens great for 100+ but depends how well threaded a title is

    This makes me want to move my CPU back to air... (Which would let my 240mm rad go on the GPU for better perf there, too)

    What are the symptoms of a failing power supply?

    Grinding noises: bad fan Squealing: possible bad capacitors Sudden shutdowns as load increases is a good sign its dying, when the safeties kick in to prevent damage (firing up benchmarks, games, etc) Shutdowns after X minutes of load could be overheating shutdowns, but that can be more than just...

    Best and Worst TIM you've worked with?
