    Why no one has the right to be angry at AMD with regards to AM4

    This is the exact argument that should have stopped you from making this post.

    Sony Reveals PS5 Hardware: RDNA2 Raytracing, 16 GB GDDR6, 6 GB/s SSD, 2304 GPU Cores

    It's about the farthest thing from a regular m2. You'll need some currently non-existent gen 4 ssd that's faster than the internal drive and it will have to sustain that performance. Gen 4 drives have been terrible at sustained performance so far. I doubt the new wave of gen 4 controllers will...

    Unable to cool 9900KS @5 Ghz on all cores without any limits

    This temp makes sense, but so did your initial temp. The voltage makes a huge difference, and seeing 9900k/s chips hitting high 90s around 5ghz on top tier cooling is insanely common. I'd call it the norm, even with a big custom loop. Some people even utilize the optional 115C tj max. I also...

    Any AIO better than h150i pro?

    I'm in a similar position with a 9900k@5GHz/115i and after a lot of research my conclusion is a better cooler won't help. All the top coolers are within a degree or two for an overclocked 9900K. The problem is in the CPU. It just can't release the heat fast enough. Delidding helps, but to really...

    What do you have now and what are you trying to cool?

    Pagefile "anomalies"?

    A lot of us learn this the hard way. There will be some random thing that seems to benefit, like I recall turning off the pagefile greatly improved one specific aspect of Skyrim performance, but then you slowly discover all these little things that are dependent on it. I also use to think you...

    When can 16gb of RAM become a bottleneck?

    When you hit 2000+ tabs. 32gb fixed it for me.

    EVGA Precision X1 Launched with "Boost Lock" Feature

    This solves a long standing annoyance I've had with nvidia overclocking. You could set an offset and get a stable in game frequency of let's say 2000mhz, but for a lighter 3d load it could be 50mhz higher, which might be unstable. This never made any sense to me. Now if only afterburner would...

    Intel Puts Out Benchmarks Showing Minimal Performance Impact of MDS Mitigation

    Why are they showing us just HT on/off? Should be HT on pre-patch then HT off+patch to see the full effect on 9900k.

    Yet Another Speculative Malfunction: Intel Reveals New Side-Channel Attack, Advises Disabling Hyper-Threading Below 8th, 9th Gen CPUs

    I've been confused by the "newest gen is ok" vs "newest gen is more vulnerable" comments. Is it that the newer chips are more vulnerable just specifically not to the hyper thread exploit?

    Samsung Kills Production of Famed B-die DDR4 Memory in Favor or Higher Densities

    Depends on your needs. If you're pushing high frame rates you'll occasionally run into a game that's sensitive enough to memory speed to get a large performance gain, maybe 20+fps in a F1 title, BUT for most games at 60 fps we're talking a difference of 0.1-0.5 fps. Its similar with...

    PC Memory Prices in Free Fall, Time to Upgrade

    Guess I'm looking at the wrong kits? Barely been any price drop on performance 32gb kits from their all time high. Maybe down to 350-450 from 375 to 475?

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection Announced For PC

    Can you even have a windows 10 account without also having a live account? Seems like all of their services are accessible with a mono account these days. Open the xbox app and see if it takes your windows login.

    A universal flu vaccine could be on its way

    The scientist behind that very misreported research took advantage of the cheap aluminum cookware sales after it went viral. If he's not concerned you shouldn't be either. And for the record don't just latch onto every report of what's bad for you and run with it, keep up to date. The aluminum...

    ASRock Intros X370 Pro BTC+ Motherboard

    There won't be anything other than quick flash ups here and there. The market was artificially propped up to begin with and then every sucker that pushed it further has already been suckered. It will be years before a true resurgence. It's like when bitcoin went over 1000 and settled down for a...

    Editorial Confessions of a Crypto Miner: CPU Mining

    Look into argon2d algo coins. They're cpu oriented coins meant to provide resistance to not just asics but gpus as well. The two coins that I know of that use it just got their first pool but are also viable for solo mining.

    NVidiaProfileInspector "DeadManWalking " fork

    Memory clock does go up. That how it works. By default my 1080 ti goes to 5000mhz mem with cuda apps, with the change it goes to 5500 mhz. Before with cuda apps I could throw my memory slider to max and still have head room. With this tweak I can find the actual top speed the mem will work at...

    What if prices don't fall for years...

    I'd just start recommending to people to get a Xbox One X for now if they're looking for some higher fidelity gaming. If you buy the newer digital games you can play them on both the xbox and pc as well once they have the money to go that route.
