    Need advice on SFF Custom Loop

    Rad to the case pull if you can, but push if it turns into an oven. Are you cooling both CPU and GPU?

    AMD Zen 4 Desktop Processors Likely Limited to 16 Cores, 170 W TDP

    Yes they are... just like they did last time when they were ahead. We aren't going to see 32 cores on the desktop until Apple or Intel start creeping back up.

    EVGA X570S DARK Motherboard Pictured

    Also the big zen O kind of makes it look like 'dOrk'.... which is probably a more accurate description.

    EVGA Goes Red, Teases The First Ever Motherboard Made for AMD Ryzen Processors

    First motherboard ever -- are not encouraging words. They are like anti-marketing. "Hey bro - do you want to buy EVGA's FIRST AMD MOTHERBOARD EVER!?!?" *runs to Asus*

    Thanks to Windows 11, Scalpers Buy Out Add-on TPM 2.0 Modules

    Your ISP and Cellphone already do it - M$ can't be left behind. Also M$ will backtrack -- they're giving away the OS for marketshare, would make no sense to make a barrier to entry like this and stick to it. They need as much data as they can sell get.

    AMD FSR FidelityFX Super Resolution Quality & Performance

    I am such a fan of this tech trend -- just like Gsync nvidia got the ball rolling in a proprietary way and AMD came in a blew it wide open -- and as a result now I have a 'G-sync compatible' 4k VRR solution that didn't cost a kidney. Fantastic news for gaming in general. Cant wait to see it in...

    Return on Investment (OS)

    Do you mean for Microsoft? It's a way for them to retain market share and have you continue using their stuff... It's also a great way to keep competition and piracy at bay. If they kept windows pricing the way it was, they risked an alternative gaming/user OS (i.e. steamOS, chrome) coming in...

    LG caught bribing youtube channel over a monitor review

    LG Display and LG CN are two different companies. LG Display makes panels for like half the other brands, so even if you buy a dell, sony, etc. You're still buying an LG.

    CPU Overheating Issue Help

    6700k had the toothpaste between the ihs and the die... they did run super hot but... a 10 C increase in liquid temp is pretty massive for a quad core on a dual radiator with 2k RPM fans. Also the readings are weird... how does a AIO with a liquid temp of 30C cool a processor to 27 C :/ In...

    Arctic MX-5 is here boys!!!!! Tests incoming!!!

    Biocide will turn cloudy too. I just use a bit of blue antifreeze. ~ 15% or so with distilled water, that's the only thing that hasn't completely deteriorated after a year.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider benchmark

    54% GPU bound isn't that big of a bottleneck... seems to be pretty well balanced at 1080P.

    My pc froze and now it doesnt start again

    something got knocked loose. Open it up, take everything out... re-seat everything apologize to your rig, and then seal her back up. If that doesn't work then it's possible something got actually damaged -- 1. Try running it with just the igpu on the 9700K to eliminate GFX, 2. Try one ram...

    AMD RX 7900 XT Reportedly Brings 40% Performance Uplift Over RX 6900 XT

    Random PC shutdowns (Event ID 41)

    It definitely sounds power like delivery/PSU or motherboard. Instability with other hardware is usually logged by windows, so a hard OFF like that really just leaves PSU or Mobo, especially if the cpu proves stable under load.
