System Name No name, yet..
Processor AMD 1800X at stock settings.
Motherboard AsRock X370 itx/ac, /diy vrm heatsink.
Cooling Alphacool Eisbaer 240LT.
Memory 2 x 8gb G.Skill Flare 3200/CL14.
Video Card(s) Gigabyte RTX 2060 oc rev2.
Storage Samsung 960 Evo 500GB m.2, Crucial MX500 2TB sata.
Display(s) HP ZR24W.
Case DIY ITX.
Power Supply Be Quiet 500W sfx-l
Software Win10 home, Ubuntu linux.
Last 5 months (for what I can remember):


- Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT 2 cyclocomputer (and Orbea Terra gravel bike for it, not the other way around ). Great combo, anyways. ♥️

- LaCie Rugged Mini 2Tb USB 3 as additional backup for my photos

- Asustor AS5202T NAS + 2x Ironwolf 4Tb (for my better half as Xmas present).

- New Color calibrator, my old Spyder 4 is acting up...

- Noctua NH-L9a-AM4 for my home server experiments. Now I only need quieter PSU and proper case. For now, it's just laying wildly on my desk, without a case.

- OnePLUS Nord 2T 12/256Gb (writing this with it)

- New PCIe3 Riser cable, 40cm, it's still waiting for installing. Old one broke, or that was my quick diagnose. I hope i was right, since I don't anymore have enough money to buy anything bigger, like MB, CPU or GPU... Time will tell. Maybe next week..

I was planning buying new monitor and other stuff last week, but then I remembered my rent (and Xmas) is waiting.... I think it's better to take off my buying trousers, for now. They became quite worn out.

Oh, and if I would've known that that Asustor NAS would be on sale on black friday, I could have saved 'baut 100€... Life is....

It would seem storage is the star of this year's Black Friday sales. Unfortunately the P41 is way overpriced in Canada.
Indeed and the solidigm rebrand. I got a 1TB and a 2TB Kingston KC3000……..well in the mail anyway.

Finally able to get a 3 pack of T30s. Noctua wants $50 for a single A12x25 Chromax, no thanks.

These should make for some interesting comparisons with the 2 x A14s they might replace

Got it in a Black Week sale for the irony :D
It cost me the equivalent of $94 w/o tax. I'm planning to build a secondary AM4 rig at some time to dust off that 3300X. It will get one of the SX8200 Pros from my main, and the Black will become the new OS drive:

Not a black Friday deal but I needed more slots. It will replace the M-ATX Mortar.

I also bought the 5600x which was a black Friday deal. The 3600 will be given to a friend.

I know, MSRP is not exactly a screaming deal :laugh: but they are T30s after all

Same, I also don't expect to use the 2000/3000rpm modes. I'm just trying to get away from the Chromax A14s - they work great on gasketed rads but in this specific application (bottom of the Cerberus) they cause some resonance starting at just 900rpm.

Besides my next case is all but guaranteed to need all 3 T30s, no space for 140s in the front or bottom.

I don't think so, no. Are they another parts supplier like Digikey? I've bought some stuff off Digikey and Mouser in the past. I'm not too interested in industrial fans though, specifically the T30s for the performance - I wanna see if the thickness can let them get close to the A14......without rupturing my eardrums lol

So you can build a full noctua one, since you don't see it anyway... :D

(I use 3 of them beige though, personally I don't mind, I like quality :D )

So you can build a full noctua one, since you don't see it anyway... :D

(I use 3 of them beige though, personally I don't mind, I like quality :D )
Actually, i have plans for a full Noctua build. Two tone native Noctua colours. I like to live on the edge.

Jokes aside, I really like brown and beige. They look and feel natural, easy on the eyes, calm. Unlike the Galactic Empire style that is dominant for the last 10 years.

Got it in a Black Week sale for the irony :D
It cost me the equivalent of $94 w/o tax. I'm planning to build a secondary AM4 rig at some time to dust off that 3300X. It will get one of the SX8200 Pros from my main, and the Black will become the new OS drive:

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)

Wow, never heard something like that in 25 years :eek:
Did you got it replaced under warranty?

I don't think so, no. Are they another parts supplier like Digikey? I've bought some stuff off Digikey and Mouser in the past. I'm not too interested in industrial fans though, specifically the T30s for the performance - I wanna see if the thickness can let them get close to the A14......without rupturing my eardrums lol
Ya. They have sunon Sanyo Denki panaflo etc etc. well at least they used to.

just sent it back to the store and got a new one.
and dying Ryzen CPUs are not "that" uncommon. it's not my first one.

I'm afraid the times have changed, and it's yet to be seen how much durable the new (2017+) processors really are in the years to come. We might be spoiled by the rock solid processors of old. All those Core i5, i7 and even FX, running static overclocks with high voltages for over a decade, and with no signs of degradation. I'm sure budget cuts, and consumers tendency to upgrade systems every few years (and the upgrade isn't the right word, buying the completely new systems isn't upgrade TBH), which manufacturers really like and take advantage of, did their thing in the durability department as well. I just hope I'll be proven wrong.

Somewhere along the line Noctua's palette has changed slightly, I think. Maybe it was a change made with the A12x25.

Regardless, I think Noctua colours are one of those "seeing is believing" things - the beige is usually pleasant under normal lighting conditions, but it just looks like pale green ass in the average joe's photos.

I'm migrating my 1Tb samsung980 pro to data, the 2tb to main drive, and the WD 500 to Windows 2 Go, see what kind of mess I can make :)

I regularly confuse myself when trying to remember which of my 3 drives I put the darn program on :D

In the last few weeks of the 5800X3D thread on ocn, there are already multiple accounts of 5800X3Ds suddenly up and dying for no reason. I wouldn't draw broader conclusions at this point (not the first time on AM4 CPUs), but it comes with the [AMD] territory I guess :cool: though the 5800X3D really is a headscratcher, given AMD pulled out all the voltage/Fmax/power stops to prevent people from OCing this one

I think it depends on the board and BIOS version. My board sets my CPU at 1.28 Volts max. I know other 5000 chips like to run at 1.4 or 1.5 so boards may be guilty of pushing more voltage than reported. There is also the fact that the pandemic has made QC a thing of the past as well though.
