    Scumbag ASUS: Overvolting CPUs & Screwing the Customer

    I've never had any problems with an ASRock board... I currently have the X670 Taichi Carrera and love it. ASRock was the first OEM to release an updated BIOS for this too. When I had a driver problem with my older Velocita board, their CS was very proactive and even emailed me some...

    AMD 7900XT and 7900 XTX Reviews

    I'm just hoping that the 7000's launch will finally bring down prices on a 6800XT, which is the card I actually almost afford

    Begun the AM5 Wars Have....

    Sitting out this round of cpu/mb upgrades, but could be after a better gpu if prices continue to improve. Having double the M.2 slots is a nice feature though. Any motherboards in white this cycle? /5800X3D - ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero X570 - Sapphire Nitro+ 6600XT

    AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, RX 6750 XT ‘RDNA 2 Refresh’ Graphics Cards Rumored For Q2 2022: Navi 21 & 22 GPUs With 18 Gbps Memory

    Couldn't care less about Ray Tracing... I don't play a single game that even supports it. Hopefully, I won't have to buy a new GPU until after the next product cycle late this year. /6600XT works just fine for 1440p gaming

    Is it worth upgrading to Windows 11?

    I've already got a ghost image of my boot drive, but will update it. The CTD issue is weird and has been happening on/off for several years. Never while gaming or running any productivity app - only happens 1-2 times a month when playing a YT video... best guess is that my 6600XT runs out of...

    Is it worth upgrading to Windows 11?

    My Win10 system for work/play (Ryzen 5900/32gb) is now pushing me with nags to install the Win11 update... Gaming performance in W11 is about identical to W10? I suppose MS Office performance is same. How is memory handling? I sometimes get CTD's when playing YouTube videos

    EKWB Lays Off 25% of Workforce, Blames Lower Watercooling Sales

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    I think wokeness ought to be this generation's Godwin Law... the first poster crying racism, sexism, ****ism, equity, etc (and anyone dredging up Gamergate) automatically loses the thread and must stand in a corner with a dunce cap on ;)

    Sticking with my 5900X. I'd like to ride with AM4 for at least another year before I start thinking upgrades again.

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    Do it! We're thinking about doing the same, getting out of Houston and trying to find a nice quiet corner of the hill country that hasn't already been discovered and become unaffordable, so we might consider Arkansas, Missouri, Colorado or even Maine for our retirement. She wants to rescue...
