Well it's Black Friday. I have a request for a Gaming PC. They don't want AM5 or Intel. I was just browsing around Newegg and snagged this for $219 CAD. This is the most extreme B550 board that is truly like the B450 E. Even comes with an Expansion card for some RAID 0 loving. It is basically $200 off.



That’s my board, got it for a hunny off last spring. It’s a good board :)

That could be why it's not showing for me as I am in Canada. I was on Newegg and they still had the Kingston NV2 2 TB for $166 CAD (Canada Computers is sold out) so I am going to grab 2. I love getting parts for a build during black Friday. There is a 6600 for $269

Seeing as I just got one could you just give me a brief scenario on how your first one went down? I am just running mine "stock" minus the "Special Sauce" setting MSI provides in the BIOS for the 3D that actually lowers the voltages overall and has lowered my temps in MT loads considerably so I think it's totally "safe" and running more efficient than running it with nothing but default settings.

you talk about "Kombo Strike" right?
that is actually just the Curve Optimizer -10, -20 and -30.
my 5800X3D ran core cycler with P95 AVX2 small FFT and y-cruncher over night at -25 (to test it for stability). i played tons of games for hundreds of hours with zero problems.
in september i had to drop it to -10 otherwise i got idle crashes and reboots while gaming.
in late october stock was barely stable. (Cinebench spat out errors after a minute)
last week it didn't even post anymore and i had the CPU LED blinking. (tested three motherboards)

Yes I am using Kombo Strike Level 3. I strictly game on my PC with the odd "reference bench" if I switch GPU drivers so I it will never be under any "hard load" constantly but I do appreciate your clarification on the Kombo Strike levels I assumed it was doing that just didn't have any hard numbers. Hardest load it will see see is Time Spy CPU Test and yes the odd Cinebench Run just to check my load temps. I am just glad you got a new one and have been the "guinea pig" on how much this CPU can handle before it has issues.

I’m curious too, I beat the piss out of all my chips and inquiring would like to know :))
I am just glad he DID find how out how much it can handle and know that under my usage I can't hurt mine...

Must have been a fluke, but doesn’t change the fact that it sucks worse than a donkey show.

Totally! I mean I didn’t even mean to get a 3D i just “messed up” bad and killed my 5600X. This one for my usage just made sense if I was staying on AM4.

I was looking at the Dell 25" gamer, with 3.2 USBs, and an LED underscreen, but they went OOS (Limited Quantity sale) before I could make up my mind. Decided on this one as a second choice, wanted to hurry before they went OOS on me as well, and maybe get it in by Friday (which it managed to make it), and then on Friday, Dell magically discovered more of their 25"s.... *sigh* \
I will say, setup was smooth, but I would absolutely give up the Backlight off the stand for an LED under front.. I'm actually considering an adhesive mirror panel to put back there to reflect the light where I want it (*edit: LOL LOL I spend too much time on Twitch..)

edit: after giving it a quick once around the block on the web, I have to say, it really is sharper than I expected....

I was looking at the Dell 25" gamer, with 3.2 USBs, and an LED underscreen, but they went OOS (Limited Quantity sale) before I could make up my mind. Decided on this one as a second choice, wanted to hurry before they went OOS on me as well, and maybe get it in by Friday (which it managed to make it), and then on Friday, Dell magically discovered more of their 25"s.... *sigh* \
I will say, setup was smooth, but I would absolutely give up the Backlight off the stand for an LED under front.. I'm actually considering an adhesive mirror panel to put back there to reflect the light where I want it (*edit: LOL LOL I spend too much time on Twitch..)

edit: after giving it a quick once around the block on the web, I have to say, it really is sharper than I expected....
I ordered mine in August I got an email it was going to be January. Imagine my surprise when a few weeks ago while in hospital for pneumonia it had shipped I had to get out of there fast as I had a week before it would be sent back. As for the backlight for me it’s just “extra” as I’m already set there. It took some searching to get it to match without relying on the App.

I bought this RTX 2060 Mobile second-handed (with a mobile GPU core but in a desktop form factor) for what is effectively 64USD. The card did work, but its video output will not work on my Haswell PC, so the performance should be slightly lower than taking advantage of the single HDMI 2.0 on the card itself for display output. Apparently, its silicon quality is still decent after the months spent in a mining rig, but the power limit of a mobile RTX 2060 is still there, so I have to get the most out of the 80W power budget. Eventually, I was able to push it to 1995Mhz with 0.9V while maintaining under 80W of power draw and got this result using 1080p ultra raytracing. It could be CPU bound during the benchmark though.

It would seem storage is the star of this year's Black Friday sales. Unfortunately the P41 is way overpriced in Canada.
