    Enermax Increases Warranty to 5 Years for all AIO Coolers Bought After February 1st 2021

    My LiqTech clogged too.... For the SECOND time. I needed to have a fully functioning rig so I bought cooling from a different supplier, got my money back and never looked at Enermax again. Won't touch them with a ten foot pole even if they extend the warranty to 20 years. RMA etc is still too...

    Team Group T-Create Classic 10L DDR4-3200 MHz CL22 2x32 GB

    Am I seeing it correctly ?? CL22 at 3200 ?? Why not CL12423443256 just for the extra layer of stability? LoL.....

    AMD Announces AGESA 1.1.9.0 Firmware Updates, Improve FCLK OC Stability

    Sometimes (rarely) even stock settings need tuning.... I bet that with a few changes here and there your rig would be rock solid. I would first start with power calibration levels for CPU and SoC.

    AMD Briefly Overtakes Intel in Desktop Market Share According to PassMark Data

    LoL... Intel damage control much ? Since after a few months after the very first ZEN release and after the big AGESA update 1.0.0.6 there are no major problems.... null, zero, zilch. But as AnarchoPrimitiv said (just for the sake of having fun) you are welcome to name a few new ones if you...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Series "Genesis Peak" Processor Lineup Could Begin with a 16-Core Model

    I have not said that TR is bad. It is by thousand times still a better choice than intel.... and I have also upgraded (or rather -- I was forced to) to TRX40 platform and it is great. I will also upgrade to ZEN3 based TR but I assume this might be the last TR platform for me, as - besides I/O...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Series "Genesis Peak" Processor Lineup Could Begin with a 16-Core Model

    Allright.... then what about "just" PCIe 3.0 + ZEN2 and ZEN3 on a X399. Similar to X370 or B450. Simple enough? But no! They forced TR owners to swap the whole platform for TRX40 in order to run ZEN2....

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Series "Genesis Peak" Processor Lineup Could Begin with a 16-Core Model

    I call your bluff.... It has already been proven that you can get PCIe on the x470 MoBo's (at least for the lines that are connected directly to the CPU) but AMD artifically disabled this possibility even though the System Integrators have tested and proven it stable on many of the...

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 5000 Series "Genesis Peak" Processor Lineup Could Begin with a 16-Core Model

    They'll better offer support else it will be the last TR I have bought. Already changed the X399 MoBo to TRX40 last year because only the TR-platform seem to be incompatible chipset/socket-wise with >ZEN2 CPUs...

    Cybenetics Introduces Easy PSU Efficiency and Noise Badges

    IMHO the old rating system is old and needed to be adjusted or changed. I actually like that they not only test the 12V efficiency, but also the PFC, 5V rail and losses... Noise or soundproofing is an added bonus. Basically anything below gold and A you would need to have a good reason to buy...

    GIGABYTE Outs AORUS C700 Glass Full-Tower Chassis

    LoL.... 4x 3.5" and ....... six (!!!) 2,5" ?? What kind of bollocks are this? Who does use the 2,5 drives nowadays --- if you can have M.2s, use 3,5" for (slow) storage and also mount some more "average" speed SATA3 SSDs also into the 3,5" bays.... Just.... doesn't make sense.... and oh...

    Hedge Fund Urges Intel to Outsource Chip Production: Reuters

    If you add to this the 36 Billions in debt (increased by 6B since 3-2020) plus how the stock constantly drops on average since 2020 then it might paint a different picture.

    Team Group Successfully Develops Consumer-Grade DDR5 Memory, Begins Validation

    Memory training routines have been implemented at least since ZEN-Era.... Or do you mean additional routines? And I do hope that memory could scale with the load thus introducing power saving modes in idle etc., but this could lead to additional problems like with the GPU I don't want to think...

    Team Group Successfully Develops Consumer-Grade DDR5 Memory, Begins Validation

    They are moving the voltage regulator to DDR5 Modules, which will definitely make them more expensive as they are now. There will be ECC in those modules (which is something positive and will have a great impact on the instabilities some users might experience due to badly tuned memory...

    Team Group Successfully Develops Consumer-Grade DDR5 Memory, Begins Validation

    I think you are missing my point here.... Obviously DDR5 will be faster,have higher latencies and lower voltage and error correction... But what I am trying to say is -- there is a high chance the the memory overclocking/tuning days will be gone.... No more "buy cheap memory and overclock it...

    Team Group Successfully Develops Consumer-Grade DDR5 Memory, Begins Validation

    Translated from marketing speech to "normal" -- overclocking of this memory manually will be either hard or disabled and it will only set itself to the profile / settings it was set to work with. Say bye bye to cheap memory that overclocks well beyond the official specs... e.g. some cheapo...

    PowerColor 6800XT (reference design) / BIOS extract not working

    Hello, wanted to report that with the currently latest 2.35 version of GPU-Z the detection of 6800XT is somehow borked.... e.g. it doesn't detect the UEFI compatibility (it's present cause I have disabled CSM) or the extract of BIOS (and thus submitting to the online DB) is not supported.

    AMD Updates its Chipset Drivers, Includes Updated Power Plan for Ryzen CPUs

    Not everything is shown in the UI.... actually very little is shown in the UI for the end user. That is why 1usmus released his tuned power profiles to better accommodate the best core selection by windows scheduler (just one of many examples).

    AMD Navi 21 XT Seemingly Confirmed to Run at ~2.3, 2.4 GHz Clock, 250 W+

    And here you are completely missing my point (reading with understanding problems?). Where did I said that VCE is better? Where did I stated that I find this solution superior? I am not a streamer, I don't give a damn about OBS or whatsoever. If I want a quality video material then by all means...

    AMD Navi 21 XT Seemingly Confirmed to Run at ~2.3, 2.4 GHz Clock, 250 W+

    Wait what ? What about the encoding engine with the on par features that was there for ages? VCE ? I use A's video converter (free) for simple recodings if the quality doesn't matter (ans speed is preferred.... on the other hand with a 3960X it doesn't really make that much difference...). If I...

    ClockTuner for Ryzen Version 1.1 Released

    Love it. My Threadripper 3960X gained 1000 points in CB20 for free (within the same power envelope). 12900 vs 13876 points.

    MSI Releases AGESA V2 1.0.8.1 BIOS Updates for AMD 500-series Chipset Motherboards

    Have been building Systems with different mainboards since forever now. ZEN-based ones since the very beginning (early adopter) and I have had no problems to get the memory modules to run at a specified rate (even on ZEN1 after a few AGESA updates eventually). If you think you set XMP and you...

    EVGA Announces Frostbite 2 Thermal Interface Material

    Would interest me how it fares against known thermal pastes like Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, Arctic Silver 5, Cooler Master Marstergel Pro and Nano, Noctua NT-H2 etc. Update /// on the back photo we can see that the thermal paste has Thermal Conductivity of 1,6 W/m-k Thermal Resistance of 0,035...
