    Senators call for US to follow EU's lead in creating a national standard for phone chargers

    I haven't had to replace a single USB-C charging port on my devices. Like I had to with micro-usb. We will see what the future holds :)

    I am no fanboy of Apple, but the lightning connector was a step up from MicroUSB, but it is a step down from USB-C. USB-C should have been around a long time ago, I don't know why we needed fixed orientation connectors on USB for so long. Now lightning is the one behind, the exposed connectors...

    Did I Degrade or Destroy my 5950x? Now with a response from Asus on page 2!

    That score is not bad at all dude. My max on PBO with a lot of LLC wasn't much higher, and my chip hit high 80s in temp. (maybe 4-500 higher) so it looks like your chip is working just fine with PBO enabled.

    Pretty sure that is with PBO. I'm 99.9 % sure it will use the CPUs stock TDP setting of 105w(unless you manually change it) which is very limiting for 16 cores. PBO extends those limits to a much higher # which allows the CPU to stretch its legs more.

    Without PBO working, he is correct. PBO will get you 4.x, non PBO is 3.7

    It's superior because it has DP

    Bought a 2080ti on Facebook marketplace and it started artifacting within a couple hours. see pics

    Not at first... they tried to weasel out of it(probably didn't have any replacement 2000 series cards) and only caved once he pushed back.

    6950xt releasing next week

    Different 3070 models have different power limits, that is not a gen1 or gen2 thing. if you are talking about refresh, look at the 3070ti instead.

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    Friend of mine tried it, with a 5950x, it was not stable.

    It looks like your PPT, EDC and TDP are hitting max. Raise the levels?

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    Still not a low temp, regardless of what load it had on it. 97 hotspot is high. On top of that 74 -> 97 is a 23 degree difference, which is big for a hotspot difference from core temp. That would point to medicore contact for the heatsink itself.

    I hate to break it to you, 74 on core and 97 on hotspot is not LOW.

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    And as you said before, you used a custom fan curve, where the fan was running at 6x% when the core was super hot :)

    Well, technically your card is not overheating, you just don't like the noise it makes and were probably limiting it's fanspeed before. Now no thermal pad contact on the VRM will not cause your card to overheat, but it could cause premature failure of the VRMs
