Yeah I could not find it on amazon or other US sites, also not on panasonic USA website...

This would be another option for you: https://www.newegg.com/p/12K-0366-00020?Description=Denon D-M41&cm_re=Denon_D-M41-_-9SIAU2EHPH3883-_-Product&quicklink=true
That's a 60 Watts system though... I tested this one as well in a local shop, the panasonic sounded somewhat better imo, but you can connect a separate subwoofer to this denon, that's a nice option and it has 2 optical inputs. Oh and I just see now it has only AM/FM radio, no DAB+ in this US version, but DAB+ may not be needed for US for now I don't know....

The Panasonic is a 120 Watts system.
There is no DAB+ in the US; I think it does exist in Canada. US only has "HDRadio". But mostly it is just FM (and AM/MW) here.

i got a 7700x in my cart. i haven't caved yet, but I am getting there. i already know i don't want intel is the thing, and now that i know th -30 undervolt fixes the 95 celsius thingy, with almost no performance loss... seems like a good buy to me. and then i can sell the 7700x when the 7800x 3d comes out and just slot it in.

haven't decided yet. lol

Just don't build the whole pc and sell it two months later :toast:

My Asus A7N8X-X from 2004=I don't have it anymore, because I don't have the stuff to replace the caps with! The Chemi-Con KZG caps suddenly failed with bulging and leaking in the mid-2010s!

Seems that possibly 2004 was the worst year for their KZG series!
Yeah, I did read that caps on A7N8X-X are known to fail, yet still mine works fine (I was going to recap it, just tried it for the lulz and it works without any hiccups). Yet some graphics cards (which I know are working ones), refuses to work. I guess that it's not in its 100% health though so I may recap it.

I will likely go with the HDMI output model as I want to connect it to a larger screen.

Yeppers, I agree. I have one that is flaky due to bad caps.

It's insane, and ProShop DK listed the Asus Prime B650M-A for about 232 bucks it's like no way not gonna buy it...

Link: https://www.proshop.dk/Bundkort/ASU...650-AMD-AM5-socket-DDR5-RAM-Micro-ATX/3109171

I hope there will come a better board to show Asus not to asucks on the price and features.

Tell me about it damn cpu is $799 gougelandastani Plunketts but the mobo ( Asus ROG Strix X670E- E Gaming )to put it in is $1198 Plunketts WTF and you really don't want to know how much a Crosshair X670E mobo is here unless you'd like a heart attack Oh alright twist my arm then

View attachment 263750

What the actual Frankenstein baby batter does that mobo have on it that makes it worth 2100 bucks
Well seems like the other ones in this series with the "Billboard RGB" all seem to hit this mark. I guess MOAR RGB is expensive? I just recently had to replace my X570 board out of necessity and stock was limited and ended up with an MSI X570S board that in fact has ZERO RGB just headers for it. I couldn't be happier for it-

Keep it and upgrade your CPU to a 5800X3D. You'll thank yourself later.
As always, i'll assume you were talking to me instead of someone else

You son of a beach

I know.. but as I age I find I am enjoying silence a little more. And if I can cool a 5900X then a X3D should be a walk in the park.. hopefully :)

And the way I run my 5900, it chews power when it’s in use
They all have the same max TDP, the only difference is that the x3D doesnt seem to allow all core over/underclocks - it'll annoy my OCD, but i'm sure gaming at 4K 200 will alleviate that for me :3

I don't understand this, why? 5900x really isn't that far behind in gaming.
In some games the x3D is very, very far ahead

If you arent running ultra settings with RTX on, the gap widens a lot

I have to admit... the idea of 95 celsius being normal... bugs me a bit. hopefully raptor lake takes the gaming crown and can be good on temps. then hopefully i can pair it with a rdna3 7800 xt at msrp. that's my goal this year. if it fails, then I don't know, will just enjoy my PS5 until things get back to normal.
That's been the norm for intel laptops and high end desktops for several years now, AMD had their norm set to 80C or so

One thing people forget on AMD is you can still set cTDP, which is a temp limit - it's one of the PBO settings. So i can say yep sure x3D, but 75C max thankee

Oh godfudgingdamnit you're all a bunch of thunderstealingdoodiefaces
