I think @GerKNG got 4.8 all-core on their copy. So maybe. :rockout:
Noice! I can for sure do 4700 stable on my 5600X, 4800 with PBO and custom limits.. boo. But it does 2K 1:1 stable. I have three zen 3 parts and it is the only one that can :(

I have been interested in what would happen if you put a Waterblock on your M2. A few years ago I bought an Alphacool DIMM cooler but it was too long to fit and I did not feel like cutting it. I was browsing around Newegg the other day and came unto this. The main reason I got it is it was actually $50 less than the one without the block in black. I am going to put some quick connect tubes on it and have it run from the GPU to the rad. I don't expect to see a noticeable difference in performance but if you can why not do it? As you can see it is Out of stock so I was not the only way swayed by the price. It was $329 at the time and this drive uses the Phison E18 so 7000 mb/s of sequential should be nice when I am moving Game files around. They are mostly sold out but right now the Kingston NV2 is $156.99 on Newegg.

Klipsch speakers Picked them up about 3 months ago and yeah, they cost me the full $1799.00 for them but they are MORE than worth it.
Also got me a new Denon AVR. Paid full price but again worth every penny.
I got a new Ryzen 9 3900X on eBay for $220.00 Bucks though so that was cool.
Also, I just got a new CoolerMaster for my new Ryzen 9 3900X CPU. And for $79.00 Bucks it is AMAZING!

FWIW, I have heard that NAND likes running warm for longevity.

I think it is the controller but we will find out. As my C drive it will be always working.
NAND chips like it warm. the controller doesn't.

Just finished upgrading my whole setup. You can see in my system spec my new build. Haven't fully tested it out but excited to see the performance jump from my previous 7yo rig...
It's not an x3D, so you must do the 2D walk of shame



I see a new storage drive coming up
This used to be used at LAN parties as a file host, but even so i'm not entirely sure that's accurate data

Lets hope it's got 5 hours of life left in it

Lol yes that is why I bought a 5900X, so I could have a CPU that boosts over 5GHz :) And also why I bought an X3D, crazy little CPU for games :cool:

I think those stats glitched since I swapped two disks over, both seagate 3TB's on the same USB port
The bad sectors seems legit since the drives clicking, at least


I dont *want* to spend more money on drives, but i had to sell my old NAS since its performance was too poor (even on gigabit it reguarly tanked to ~30MB/s)

I need a way to add USB 3.0 to my SFF box
I've seen awesome-ass tech online before but the product vanished

Theres products like this, but i need the connector facing rear-ward - theres no space for vertical plugs, and no spare SATA power.
1668661308633.png


A lot of these devices turn out to be USB 2.0 using 3.0 cables as extensions for mining cards, which wont work

This used to exist but can't be found now, with a single 10Gb/s type C port that would have been fantastic
1668661381991.png


  • Type
  • USB 3.1 MiniPCIe Module
  • Execution
  • 1-port
  • Chipset
  • Asmedia ASM1142
If anyone can find them for sale that isn't 50+ euro from some random site with double that in shipping
1668661772736.png



Edit: Ugh i could run a riser cable out of the system and technically run one of the ugly things on top, but that does defeat half the joy of an SFF system. It's a third gen i5 but only USB 2.0 for some godawful reason.

Congratz on the new PC man, use it safe and sound! I am tempted as Black Friday is coming to upgrade from my Kaby Lake to Alder Lake. I estimate selling my parts and buying the new, difference would be something like a 100 euro. i3-12100F looks mighty impressive (=i7-7700K or so), pair it with a dirty cheap Asrock B660M-HDV and 32Gigs of DDR4 RAM should definitely feel "snappier" than what I have now, for a marginal cost as I said.

Personally I wouldn't buy a 8 thread quadcore anymore for gaming, I would highly recommend a step up to an i5 for that extra power.
Also I recommend buying a CPU with iGPU in case you don't have a spare GPU when you got issues....

I did the same in 2022 february, sold my old parts and switched to a 12100F build I have under my specs, had a GTX 1070 at the time and just recently upgraded to a 3060 Ti.

For my use case the 12100 is enough and will be for a while but I agree that if the budget allows it might worth to step up to a 12400 or so but it all depends on your use case tho.
Personally I only play games and mainly single player/maybe MMOs every now and then so in my case its more than enough for now.

If you don't plan on upgrading your GPU then its all good tho with the i 3 for casual gaming, also the 12100 beats a 7700K clocked at 5GHz + draws a lot less power.:) 'its on par or bettert than a 10400/11400 in most games'
