I actually have 3, but no matter how I try they won't actually show up. So ya'll will have to live with attachments. Too bad.. I think the other two are a little better.
I'm surprised it says Made in China, I just assumed all Ryzen was made in same place. mine says made in malaysia I think, not sure, I know it wasn;'t china though

@robot zombie definitely looks much better stopped down. Did the same on mine, there's too much text on the IHS lol.
Only way to do it :) my only regret is that I had the light a little too low and I had to bring up a little too much noise. I also tried to angle the camera opposite to the angle of the light source hitting the printed stuff to white it out. The lower exposure does make it a little easier to see the texture of the IHS, and to me it just looks better if the pins and actual PCB are hidden in a shadow... the IHS is the main point of interest and having it just floating there gives a nice effect - looks cleaner and draws the eye better I think. I do still kinda wish I played around with angling it perpendicular to the light and trying to catch that perfect gradient. I wonder how often that gets 'shopped with how much of a pain it is... maybe it's better with a smoother tripod... or a movable light source :p

I think they've been doing it a while. Pretty sure my 2600 was also put together in China - I'll have to see when I twist the heatsink off. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen one made in Malaysia outside of pictures. At some point they did assemble them there... and until now, that's where I had them as being made in my head. China wasn't even up there lol

Nice shots! Have to say I prefer the first one, both due to the more oblique angle and exposure (the rotation of the CPU in the third shot is a bit jarring compositionally, but also kind of works). You mention noise, I can't see any. As long as there isn't blatantly obvious color noise (which Lightroom or Photoshop should take care of easily anyhow) I really don't mind - some noise usually adds character to the pic. One minor niggle: I wish you had focused just a few mm further into the shot so that the "3900X" text was more inside the focal plane - I'd much rather have seen the front corner of the "R" in "Ryzen" slightly unsharp if that made the "3900X" more readable. Other than that, excellent work!

Took this pic of my G4560...



Lemme tell ya... the autofocus on the LG V40 is absolute garbage. 90% of the time it just doesn't work, and when it does work, sometimes it inexplicably switches from the macro camera to the wide angle one which messes everything up. Just getting this picture was a pain. If there are any ways to improve this phone's camera experience, let me know.

Dear AMD, please switch to the LGA style, your's sincerely a PGA hater. :toast: ....... On a more relevant note, I'm not camera expert but the quality of that close up shot is amazing to me, sorry I can't help though, I know nothing about camera's.

Nice pic, my LG G5 is annoying, worse battery life than all of my Samsung GS3's that I've owned combined, coupled with a faulty finger print sensor that works 50% of the time because the phone deactivates it and cleaning it with IPA only helps a bit, a camera that's only good for shots outside and even then it lacks something, and the single camera mode cannot focus anymore for some reason even though I didn't mess with it, simply unusable. Now add on top an antenna that can't get reception 90% of the time inside a building. Hoho, and the screen is peeling off from a corner after 2 years.

The stock OS sucks balls, the last firmware update was a placebo and didn't help much at all, and the battery saving mode doesn't do jack. The cell broadcast is taking most of the power and the handset is always on, pretending to be in sleeping mode. Then why tf do you have a batery saving mode at all. Greenify used to mediate this sort of thing, but I can explain why I can't use such apps further on...

Sick of charging a phone every 2 days when I barely ever use it.

When I switched to a replacement battery the phone got messed up even more, I still use the original battery but the phone is acting like a printer with DRM on it. I'm probably never getting an LG handset that's for sure. It's only good for music now since I like the DAC, since rooting is region locked, and LG has only allowed region unlocks for most of the handsets except some select counties, and because mine comes from Turkey, they won't provide any support for it, I should have researched more even though I was dead set to get the G5 instead of a few other alternatives. This thing didn't last me more than 7 months before it started completely falling apart. It's legit made to break within a year so you'd buy a new phone. I'm just waiting until this thing finally chokes slowly. I don't like being sold a faulty POS. :laugh:

I need to get a Pixel 3a, it's the only thing that makes sense without researching too much, I mostly only care for the camera and DAC sound quality, oh battery life that's longer than 1.5hrs in full use, not much to ask. But probably no phone goes without shortcomings. I don't like regretting my purchases. I know a person that used a V30 that had similar problems, LG dropped the ball on their phones.

I had an LG phone and it broke so I went to get a replacement LG from my provider. Thankfully the salesman led me to a Nokia that has triple the battery life. As an example I did not charge my phone from Thursday this past weekend and after work on Monday I was at 35%. With my LG phone I would have to have charged my phone on Friday and Sunday.

I think my 1st gen Ryzen was "Made in Malaysia, Diffused in USA"

That was back when they were using the GloFo old IBM East Fishkill NY fab though.
