    Where Are The Numeric Scores

    Am I dreaming or the numeric scores disappeared from all reviews on TPU's database? :confused: I know there's a poll (where keep the scores wins) but I didn't hear a decision had been made, let alone something as dramatic as this.

    Virtual Cores On or Off?

    This is about simultaneous multithreading in general, so both Intel and AMD. I've been watching several videos and reading tests and although the results are somewhat mixed I have the feeling that with higher (physical) core count, 6 and above, turning multithreading off can be beneficial in...

    What Types of Games Do You Prefer?

    I tend to prefer a couple of types: - adventure/point and click - real time strategy but I quite enjoy some games hard to categorise like Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter or Firewatch. What about you?

    threadripper 2

    Anyone with news on this front? Or is it all quiet? Mobos/chipset, memory, coolers... I'm particularly interested in the latter, really hope there's more oversized base plates a la Noctua.

    How do you test your games?

    Hi. When you buy a new game and want to know how it runs on your hardware how do you go about it? Use the built in benchmark? Play a part of the game and: 1 use OSD with the monitor you're playing on 2 leave monitoring tools open in the background and pause the game to check 3 use a second...

    AM4 Boards and RAM

    Hi. If you're building an AM4 system where gaming will be the most demanding use will it make sense to go 32gb of RAM instead of 16gb? And in case of going 32gb is there a difference between 2x16 and 8x4? I could never understand if populating all slots on a dual channel board makes a...

    MSI fan control

    Hi. Those of you with experience on recent Asus and MSI motherboards, how do you compare the respective Bios fan controllers? Does MSI have the same fan tuning (to check min/max rpms)? And how about the UI, is it as intuitive as the Asus one? Thanks

    Fractal Fan Controller

    Intel Xeon E3

    Hi. I was browsing the site of my local hardware shop and noticed the Xeon E3-1240 v5. Paired with an Asus E3 Pro Gaming v5 it would cost about the same as an i7 6700 with an Asus H170 Pro Gaming. Would there be advantages (or disadvantages) in going with the Xeon for what would be an all...

    MSI Gaming App

    Hi, the latest MSI's Gaming X/Z cards have RGB lighting that can be controlled with the so-called Gaming App software. Can't you do it with Afterburner? And if you must install the App (to disable those light effects :mad:), does it store settings in the GPU or will it have to run at every...

    Asus Strix Software

    Hi all. I have a question for those of you using the Strix 970/980. Can we use the GPU Tweak to change the fan profile? More specifically: 1 Can we have the fans spinning all the time? 2 How low (percentage wise) can they spin? 3 Which custom profiles (if any) did you create? Thanks.
