    unlimited budget server/workstation, EPYC 9174F?

    Now we’re talking! Love this…

    Any news on when the ATX 3.0 PSU's will arrive?

    Interesting…. But would you say that it is a bad idea to grab a top brand like the Seasonic Vertex line as soon as they are available? Because that is what I’m planning to do.

    Will air cooling be enough for 7950X?

    Yeah, this one is actually very interesting: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/amd-ryzen-9-7950x-cooling-requirements-thermal-throttling/ Long story short, a top air cooler will not cost you much performance.

    Downclocking 6400 XMP to 6000 EXPO Equivalent (with tighter timings) on AM5 Worth the Effort?

    In for a follow, as I’m looking squarely at precisely option 2 with a CAS Latency 30. But maybe latency is not as important as I assume, old school as I am? :rolleyes:

    Will air cooling be enough for 7950X?

    Basically, will a top air cooler such as Noctua ND15 cut the mustard on a AMD 7950X or should I expect some mild throttling? Another option would be Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280 top mounted in a Phanteks P600S case. The GPU will be my current RTX 3090 or maybe a future 4090 but I’m are not...

    Any news on when the ATX 3.0 PSU's will arrive?

    Yeah, I’m soon going to do the F5 routine on some websites in the hunt of the Seasonic Vertex. It was promised for December….

    Are there likely going to be new AM5 mobos released when Zen X3D releases?

    To be honest, I think the B650E motherboards present a pretty great compromise between features and price. AMD made a big mistake by launching the Zen4 with only the expensive 670 motherboards as people got the sentiment that AM5 would always be a very expensive option - and that impression...

    Anyone actually have a 650 or 650E Board yet?

    Yep, all I want is a review of the Asus B650E Rog Strix - either the E or F model. :(

    Any news on when the ATX 3.0 PSU's will arrive?

    Yeah, got my eyes set on the Seasonic Vertex series too. Not entertaining the idea of a new build before it can be purchased because I want easy PSU cable management to a RTX 4090.

    Nvidia 4080 Reviews are out!

    Hopefully somebody will buy these to take the heat of the RTX 4090s - they are still quite difficult to get hold off. :rolleyes:

    4090 owners, how are you dealing with the power connector fiasco?

    This guy claim that “There were no extreme bends and the cable was properly inserted into the socket ( click sound after inserting it)” - but still a melt: https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/ysk9dj/9900k_4090_adapter_melted/

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    What do you mean by “plugging it in wrong”? If it is possible to plug 450/600W in “wrong” just like that, something is fundamentally messed up. Having said that, I think the issue is complex since we have yet to hear anything from nVidia / AIB, not even a rumor.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Starting to look like this is a real issue, unfortunately. I’m pretty sure we will hear something official within the next two weeks - probably next week From nvidia and partner.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    It is beyond idiotic that these RTX 4090 cards doesn’t have the power connector at an angle or something that. Doesn’t the product managers use these cards themselves, like WTF?! Terrible QA and product development, top to bottom. You realize this like one minute after installing the cards...

    Looking Back At ATI Technologies

    This. I can still remember how much I was in awe of the visual quality that the card’s FP16 pipeline enabled on tech demos. Oh my… and it got performance to boot, nothing quite like it since. Interestingly, I was hoping that the RTX cards from nVidia would get me just as excited with the outlook...
