Yeah, this one is actually very interesting:
Long story short, a top air cooler will not cost you much performance.
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...
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...
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:
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.
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...
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...
