    And it was fun to watch the IT guru cringe when he saw a bent IDE or SCSI cable. Too worried about stress on cable.

    Researching AMD processors for x570 chipset for gaming PC ( Ryzen 5800X3D vs. Ryzen 5950x )

    1. I don't buy into the "gaming" marketing hype. I look at core count and my workload needs. 2. I plan on waiting on Intel and AMD's next move. Not sold on DDR5 but prices are dropping fast. 3. If you want to game now it will not come cheap even though GPU prices are dropping. my Zotac...

    1000w PSU choices for gaming w/ 3080 Ti

    As a scientist I would look at MTBF for long term reliability decisions, I have never had a PS fail, again I do not go cheap on brands(EVGA, Seasonic branded units only).

    1000w PSU choices for gaming w/ 3080 Ti

    EVGA 10 yr warranty is great, I wouldn't worry about OEM too much.

    Super flower is good I believe some are used by EVGA (I would look at their PSU too)

    Dual monitor setup, taskbar issues (Win 10)

    We use Display Fusion software much better than Win 10 display interface.

    Best/worst computer brands.

    Funny but in the day it was ''state of the art'', Even a new custom built PC will be obsolete eventually regardless of OEMs used.

    Please share your afterburner voltage frequency curve

    Yeah I understand extending the life as much as you can with supply and pricing going nuts. I do Analytical chemistry for a living and I would take the temp sensor readings with a grain of salt. There is a Intel white paper explaining how the CPU thermocouples/sensors are highly inaccurate at...

    Please share your afterburner voltage frequency curve

    I like to tinker around too with undervolting and OC but if you are spending approx. 1900 for a GPU the cost of electricity should not even be an issue. Now if you are running an asic mining farm like my son does power savings correlates to increase profit. The only increase in performance...
