    GELID Announces Glint ARGB M.2 SSD Cooler

    A thick block of plastic taking over half of the total heatsink's size is the last thing I want for cooling purposes. Maybe except plastic gpu backplates.

    GIGABYTE X570 AORUS Master OC Edition Pictured

    Still has chipset fan that will eventually fail instead of a larger passive heatsink.

    Memory sticks combination: 8+8+8+8 V.S. 8+8+16+16

    I'm using a desktop with 8x2 and 16x2 together for 48GB of ram, the problem is at the ram's rated speed of 3200mhz it won't boot, need to lower it to 2800ish and looser timings.

    Buying Used Mining Gpu?

    The biggest risk on cards running 24/7 isn't the gpu itself but the fans. Be prepared to swap them because they will fail after running near 100% for so long.

    HyperX Announces FURY DDR4 RGB Memory SKU Additions

    RGB won't fix the ram's garbage timings but will increase the cost, when will this fad die already?

    GIGABYTE Gives AMD X570 the Full Aorus Treatment: ITX to Xtreme

    I'm annoyed by the fact that the one with actual useful heatpipe/sink also features a massive useless shroud over the components.

    ASUS Shows Off its X570 Motherboard Lineup: ITX Included

    Instead of the stupid LEDs and insulating plastic shields, why nobody has yet to put a decent heatpipe chipset heatsink without moving parts? Passively cooling 15W is not the pinnacle of engineering.

    Colorful iGame GeForce GTX 1660 Ultra 6 GB

    Mostly empty too, they could make a small pcb and a pass through cooler like Fury Nitro.

    Intel Prepares a Mammoth $11 Billion Investment in Israel

    They certainly won't raise core count for a decade if they can get away with it.

    Colorful Announces GeForce RTX 2080 Sans Cooler for Waterblock Afficionados

    It should have a giant warning on the box requiring a cooler to use.

    CES 2019: ASRock Launches DeskMini A300, World's First Ryzen APU-powered Mini STX PC

    Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 with 2700U. The throttle is mostly GPU, it can reach the specified 1300mhz but quickly dials back to 400mhz most of the times. Butter smooth gamplay at 1300 but choppy at 400. For 2D or low requirement games 400mhz is fine.

    CES 2019: ASRock Launches DeskMini A300, World's First Ryzen APU-powered Mini STX PC

    I bought a Ryzen laptop for that but it throttles like hell, this thing should run at full speed with a good 65w cooler.

    phenom 1090T x6 @ 60$ Worth it?

    Make sure your mobo supports AM3, 125w and hexa core, besides the fact that the chip itself doesn't support many newer instructions that modern games require.

    2018 Was the Year of VR Headsets - Except it Wasn't, According to Steam Hardware Survey

    Gamers don't invest in VR because there is no games worthy of a substantial entry fee, developers don't make good VR games because of the huge risk associated with a tiny market, the catch 22 won't end. At least investing in an RT ready RTX 2080ti (terrible value nonetheless) still give you the...

    Ghetto Mods

    I avoid straight plug heardphones/earphones at all cost, they break way too quickly due to no way to soften the strain by rotating in the jack. Always make sure to purchase those with L plug.

    Ryzen 3000 listed online early on russian site.

    I don't want to upgrade for the core count alone, more for the clockrate and IPC uplift. 2700X has an average of 10% deficit against competing Intel CPU in gaming, the rumored 5ghz boost clock of 3700x alone is over that 10%, in addition of the supposed IPC gains, it will be a chip as capable as...

    Ryzen 3000 listed online early on russian site.

    I thought my 2700X would suffice for the next 5 years I guess not. Thank you AMD for hurting my wallet more, I just can't resist if it ends up real.

    COLORFUL Announces iGame GeForce RTX 2070 Neptune OC Watercooled Graphics Card

    It's likely going to cost like a vanilla 2080, then end up about as fast after massive OCing, what's the point?

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 to Ship in Six Variants Based on Memory Size and Type

    Seasonic Prime AirTouch to Finally Launch Mid-January

    Their real budget line of M12II/S12II is very old and obsolete, and Focus Plus series is rather pricey for people on a budget.

    Intel's Foveros-based, Hybrid x86 CPUs Mean the Company Needed to Sprinkle some ARM

    Don't Core M have low power usage and decent performance at 2c/4t, in fact better performance overall than 4c/4t Atoms? Only problem is Intel's arbitrary pricing prevents wide adoption.
