    The State of Cryptocurrency

    I believe oil is also at its lowest point in quite some time. Markets are crashing, BTC is going to be worse.

    ASUS Revises RX 5700-series TUF Gaming with Axial Tech Fans and New Heatsink Underneath

    The fact that AMD doesn't sell a top tier card is a larger frustrations than I can express in words. The lack of competition has pushed nvidia prices for mediocre products to the moon. So, yea as a consumer I consider the 5700 to be a complete pile of trash.

    ASUS Revises RX 5700-series TUF Gaming with Axial Tech Fans and New Heatsink Underneath

    Performance is eclipsed by a mild OC on a 1080Ti from 2 years ago. This is not impressive to me. I wait impatiently for the higher tier cards since the 2080(ti) didn't impress me either they were only minor improvements over the 1080Ti.

    Why Intel CPU's run at 95°C and why AMD's should, also

    Doesn’t matter what TIM you use there are not coolers that can handle the specific heat output of current HEDT. The smaller and smaller dies are causing larger issues since the surface area to dump the heat off keeps shrinking. While not a major issue with these little baby 200w chips those of...

    ASUS Revises RX 5700-series TUF Gaming with Axial Tech Fans and New Heatsink Underneath

    I still don't see a point in purchasing these cards. It is rather unfortunate two years later the highest tier card AMD produces is at the level of a 1080Ti. I hope big Navi crushes...the space needs competition or it will stagnate.

    The Case is Patent: Apple, Broadcom Ordered to Pay $1.1 billion to CalTech

    If they received a patent list and it matched the patents there is no reason to look into it further. The patents filed that are in this should never have existed and describe exactly what is wrong with the US patent system. This should never have been approved and a team of lawyers convinced...

    The Case is Patent: Apple, Broadcom Ordered to Pay $1.1 billion to CalTech

    I do not believe apple gets a list of possible patent infringements when they order a chip to spec.

    ASUS Unveils ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha Motherboard: Improved CPU VRM

    Many companies do this or ignore the issue and let the end user suffer. I would rather they release the updated board with the upgraded VRM, then just ignoring the issue, which is what basically everyone did except MSI with TR4 and the 2990WX.

    ASUS Unveils ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha Motherboard: Improved CPU VRM

    Means the 3990X pulls more power than they originally expected. We saw the same issue with TR4 boards.

    What case would you recommend? Mid tower that holds 12 3.5" drives?

    Those are the ones I actually have I just was too lazy to find the link to those :roll: I have like four of them, they are all USB3.0 only though.

    What case would you recommend? Mid tower that holds 12 3.5" drives?

    My supermicro cases can hold 11 if configured with 3.5" bays instead of 2.5", I am now curious if I can pull the 5.25 bays and have it hold 12 though. https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/chassis/tower/GS5/SCGS5B-000R

    Intel Enthusiast-Grade K Processors in the Comet Lake-S Family Rumored to Feature 125 W TDP

    Neither is actually important. CPU stability is important, past that its a flame game of fanboys. My CPU runs quite warm under load. It also pulls more wattage than just about anyone else's on the page. Actual enthusiasts build around that instead of complaining about it. If I can dissipate...

    Intel Enthusiast-Grade K Processors in the Comet Lake-S Family Rumored to Feature 125 W TDP

    Load temps don’t really matter though. CPU stability is stability. AMD TDP is based off of P0 which is max clocks without boost per AMD. here is a link confirming that information https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/3525-amd-ryzen-tdp-explained-deep-dive-cooler-manufacturer-opinions

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, 3970X and 3990X Launch Dates Leaked

    Yea I don't think TRX40 will have any at all which is a huge disappointment for me.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X, 3970X and 3990X Launch Dates Leaked

    I am hoping that the TRX40 setup gives me a reason to swap over from my 2990WX. Better clocking would be pretty nice, I am however nervous there will not be any MATX offerings which kinda hurts my cool case setup I have going right now.
