    Phison Readies Next-Gen E18 SSD Controller, Upward of 7.38 GB/s Sequential Transfers for Client Segment

    With some competition coming on these PCIE4 drives, maybe we start seeing these coming down on price points. Would love to see more 2/4TB drives at decent perices in M.2 form factor.

    Cannot install any VM products on AMD Windows 10 build

    Something else wrong with the system if VirtualBox isn't installing, SVM setting in BIOS doesn't make a difference in your ability to install the software (although it will make a difference on the performance of the VMs you run on it though). What kind of error are you getting when installing...

    Depending on your security settings, you should always get that warning when you log in to your google account from new phone/computer/or even a different browser on your computer (for the first time).

    Bluestacks shows as a mobile phone for the android OS it runs, you can select the type it shows as from the settings. If you logged in to your google account from bluestacks you get that notification for logging in from new device. Edit. This is normal behavior when logging in to your google...

    What is the oldest piece of continually running hardware you currently use with your rig?

    Asus Xonar Essence STX from early January 2011. Still running strong, although could use some love from Asus on driver department to get rid random of getting up from sleep issues.

    How to control fan speed? They are quite loud!

    I recommend Argus Monitor (https://www.argusmonitor.com/en/index.php), it's not free but works great. Started using this when upgrading to new system and Speedfan didn't work anymore. Much easier to setup than Speedfan. I wouldn't install Asus AI Suite, it can be a real pain to uninstall...

    3200MHz RAM running at 2133MHz

    Yes, meant 2933, thanks for the correction! Was making a quick post (that's why the or so after).

    3200MHz RAM running at 2133MHz

    2xxx series propably won't run at 3200 mem, try dropping to 2933 (corrected from 2999, thanks @TheLostSwede) or so. With Zen2 you should have no problems at higher frequency. Edit. Also the latest bioses meant for Zen2 might not be best for older Zen+ series (2xxx).

    Ryzen 3900X can't clock 1800MHz Infinity Fabric with 3600 CL14. Disappointed with Ryzen.

    Might be under advanced memory settings, not familiar with Gigabyte bios though.

    Ryzen 3900X can't clock 1800MHz Infinity Fabric with 3600 CL14. Disappointed with Ryzen.

    Looking at the pic I'd say motherboard is setting CLDO VDDG and VDDP voltages too high, find where you can set these on your bios and set both to 1V and see if it helps. Edit. I couldn't get 1800+ IF on my X570 TUF + R5 3600 at first either, then I manually lowered these voltages and managed to...

    Ryzen 3900X can't clock 1800MHz Infinity Fabric with 3600 CL14. Disappointed with Ryzen.

    What kind of voltages do you get on CLDO VDDG/VDDP on settings that get you to Windows? You can see this with Ryzen Master. On Asus X570 TUF board auto setting gets these too high (on high IF frequency), which causes system instability or non bootable condition. VSOC voltage seems to always...

    Are SSDs effective when using SATA II ?

    I wouldn't call PNY CS900 reliable, you can get it dirt cheap though if you are not too concerned about possible drive failure.

    Are SSDs effective when using SATA II ?

    I have had a Asus H61 (can't remember the exact model) board running on a Samsung 840 SSD with Linux for years, and it hasn't had any problems yet. So you should be fine =)

    Are SSDs effective when using SATA II ?

    Biggest difference for daily use from moving from hdd to ssd is file acces time, so you will get most of the benefits of ssd even on SATA II interface.

    They get 20% more memory chips from each wafer?

    Reset switch cable +- on case. What happens if +- is reversed?

    Doesn't matter which way it is connected, it resets when the connection is shorted (you press the button, or directly use something to connect the pins on the motherboard). Edit. Same goes for the power switch. Rest you should make sure to connect as instructed.

    AMD's CES 2019 Keynote - Stream & Live Blog

    I'd guess the space is for graphics chip for APU configuration, purely speculation on my part though. Edit. They can use the same chiplets on all their processors with the separate IO chip, which reduces total production and development costs. I doubt they will release more than 8 cores for...

    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 18.12.3 Beta Drivers

    Had to go back to 18.12.1. 18.12.2 had the memory clock issue (staying at 700MHz idle). 18.12.3 did not fix this and added GPU fan not shutting down at idle anymore.

    Samsung Launches The New 860 QVO SSD Starting At $149.99 For The 1 TB Model

    Will be looking at the 4TB version if the actual retail price will be low enough compared to 860 EVO 4TB (around 850€ currently). Will make a nice drive for steam library. Not the drive you want if moving a lot of files, but for mostly static data should be excellent.

    The New Samsung 860 QVO SSD With QLC NAND Gets Listed Online, Will Be Cheaper Than the Evo family

    If those prices are correct and reviews seem good, then it will be time to get that nice 4TB drive for my steam etc collection, and finally get rid of physical discs on my rig.

    Microsoft Investigating Bug that Deactivates Windows 10 Pro Licenses

    Seems that it only affected upgrades from earlier versions of Windows. My PC, which was upgraded from Windows 8 pro, had this issue (actually got a new license code from MS support which fixed the problem).

    AMD's Zen 2 Could be Revealed on November 6th, "Next Horizon" Event Scheduled

    Seems to be a long haul waiting for a decently prized HDR monitor and GPU. Next year, or maybe 2020? Won't be upgrading from my my RX480 before those criteria are met.
