    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    About what I expected. I have a 5800x, more than enough cpu for me right now. Probably wait it out for Zen 5 before upgrading again or what ever intel has then. Probably not even then will we be cpu bottlenecked for 4k gaming.

    Post Your Workstations 2021

    Just got my new setup up and going. Gonna have to play with the fan control, but its full tilt atm. Really kind of sad I cannot seem to find a new gpu. I sold my 2080ti, figured I'd get a 3080, or the RX 6800xt. Now I'm rocking my old Vega 64 JOY. At least I have a somewhat decent card to game...

    R7-1700, RX Vega 64 Red devil, RX 480/580 water block

    Water block is for the rx480/580 series. The Vega has the attached red devil cooler. I would have water cooled it but all the blocks for the Red Devil disappeared.

    do you guys still use air can to spray clean the case or you use compressor?

    I use my air compressor. 50-60psi into the blow gun, and away the dust goes. I make sure to grab hold of the fans as you can overspin them if you don't. A relatively cheap dryer can be used to keep moisture to a min. Never had a problem with moisture with various different compressors and...

    3900x is a toaster oven (mine) SOLVED!

    I don't have the 3900x but I just got my 3800x today. Dropped in my crosshair Hero VI. I'm chugging along at 4.3ghz @ 1.35volts. Temps are only hitting 80c under load. I also have a full custom water loop. bios version 7106 much higher than my old r7-1700. Only had a few hours of testing with...

    Newegg has the new stuff live now

    usually more vrm = better efficiency as they don't get as hot and can stay in the sweet spot

    Newegg has the new stuff live now

    Warning = Bitcoin in coming ..

    overall it is more profitable to mine on the Radeon 7, vs the 2080ti. The 2080ti loses most of those battles, and hard.

    Warning = Bitcoin in coming ..

    Radeon 7 is a much better mining card than The 2080ti. Who ever says it is not is a silly wombat. 2080ti cannot touch that memory bandwidth. over 90mh/s in eth. Puts it leagues above anything else. I wonder how the Navi cards will do. I'd expect close to vega 64 numbers, maybe a tad higher.

    Warning = Bitcoin in coming ..

    well profit is profit. AS long as it is profitable to do so I will continue to do so. plus with the recent hikes in the BTC price profitability has gone way up. Yes It's paltry but these cards have already paid for themselves long ago. I'm making around 15$ a day now with 12 rx 580's and 1 rx...

    Very Excited About Upcoming 7nm Ryzen, but...

    I would like to point out that the Ryzen 3xxx series cpus come in two different configurations. The 8c/16 thread and lower parts will only have a single chiplet on the package. While the higher end parts the 12c and 16c will feature 2 chiplets. This tells us that these chips are being...

    Warning = Bitcoin in coming ..

    for what is is worth. I'm making around 13$ a day on nicehash. I never sold my cards from the second mining burst. I have 12 rx 580's, and a Vega 64. as long as the BTC price is above 7k, they will turn a profit. Power cost is 10 cents per KWH. You won't see many people invest into buying...

    AMD FX 8350 it still works!

    While there are faster cpus out there I still have a FX 8320 in service. Exact use I use mine for. Granted it's actually RX 580's in crossfire. Performance is more than acceptable at 1080p. I wouldn't buy the parts nowadays, but if you already have them laying around or can get really cheap...

    Very Excited About Upcoming 7nm Ryzen, but...

    Keep in mind that boost speeds are not XFR speeds. We may very well still see a 5ghz XFR speed on a single core.
