    How has Zen3 managed to maintain it's price after over a year?

    It's because AMD is supply constrained. They don't have to lower prices on their desktop parts because they're going to sell every single piece of silicon they produce. Even if demand falls off in the face of ADL (which does appear to be happening, just very slowly), they can just repurpose...

    Aquacomputer Quadro Pump Control Question

    Sounds like you have a bad QUADRO.

    Aquacomputer Quadro Pump Control Question

    Make sure you haven't offset the connector by a pin or something (I've done this before) and if that's not an issue, try connecting it to a motherboard fan header to see if you can read the RPM or control the pump that way. If neither works, your pump may be bad.

    Aquacomputer Quadro Pump Control Question

    You're connecting it to a fan header (all the QUADRO has), so it shows up under fans. Just rename the channel so you know what it is and control it from there.

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    We get it, you don't like it. You're not going to convince anyone by repeating the same thing with more BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS.

    New Samsung Odyssey G9 with MiniLED announced

    *complains about vertical resolution* *turns around and says resolution isn't actually important*

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) Launched with Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1

    In other words, nothing we didn't already know. (Also, lol at "poor image quality.") Technically the only requirement is Shader Model 6.4 support, so the 900 series should be fine in that respect. Of course, if this were an NVIDIA product, those cards would have been locked for no other reason...

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) Launched with Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1

    The Hardware Unboxed video linked above has a few comparisons in motion.

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) Launched with Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1

    The interpretation of the launch day performance and quality of FSR makes it really easy to pick out the people who were never going to give it a chance in the first place. My thoughts: * It looks better than I thought it would at Ultra Quality and Quality modes and appears to be a fine...

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) Launched with Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.6.1

    I don't think anyone in this thread is "lapping it up," but it does have one indisputable advantage for people running Pascal cards: it's better than anything NVIDIA offers them.

    Noctua's Fanless 'Passive CPU Cooler' Slated to Arrive Soon...

    Not the NF-A12x25. The NF-A12x15 has been out for some time, but that's not a good fan for anything other than applications where you can't fit a 25mm fan.

    Noctua's Fanless 'Passive CPU Cooler' Slated to Arrive Soon...

    Meanwhile, I'm still painting NF-A12x25s for people almost two years since they said the chromax version was supposed to come out.

    Alphacool drops some new radiators and some new coolant, or is it?

    Numbers change very little at the low end because you're restricted in how much heat you can remove from the loop for a given delta by the low airflow. As for your claim about decreasing difference between inlet and outlet temperatures, you're still talking about a constant heat load, which is...

    Alphacool drops some new radiators and some new coolant, or is it?

    Correct (at constant temperature, anyhow.) Incorrect. At greater flow rates, you can dissipate more heat at the same delta as you can with a lower flow rate. Say you dissipate 250 W at 1.0 GPM for a 10 C delta, you might be able to dissipate 300 W at 1.5 GPM while maintaining that 10 C delta...

    Alphacool drops some new radiators and some new coolant, or is it?

    Yes, but you can dissipate MORE heat at the same temperature (so still in equilibrium) at higher flow rates. This isn't controversial.
