    Inexplicably high temps on 5800x and 5900x

    On my 5900x I'm running 150/115/130 I see 5Ghz boost with an occasional 5.05Ghz, R23 runs 4.65-4.8 depending on the core. I'll have to run a Linpack to compare. My goal was to find the sweet spot between performance and efficiency.

    Inexplicably high temps on 5800x and 5900x

    All your turbo speeds will be thermally limited. As a [H]ardOCP member and gamer type It doesn't make sense to spend $550 on a processor and leave 10%+ of the processor's potential performance on the floor. Unless you don't care about clock speed and are one of those users who are...

    Inexplicably high temps on 5800x and 5900x

    PPT 150 TDC 115 EDC 130 These settings will limit your processor to approx 150 watts. That'll keep you at or near 80c with most of the decent air-cooled heatsinks. You can push PPT higher, but your temps will rise as well. With my older Noctura U12 raising the PPT to 165 raised the...

    Inexplicably high temps on 5800x and 5900x

    Try these settings: PPT 150 TDC 115 EDC 130 You should see a 7c drop on Air before you touch the processor voltage.

    Begun the AM5 Wars Have....

    Yeah, the Asus motherboard without the Wifi and built-in Ethernet was $40 more. The number of slots was also the same across all 4 variations of this motherboard. I chose the motherboard based on cost, stability and what items I required..certain number and type of PCIe slots. In this case...

    I remember the Abit BP6. I also owned an EPOX board which was another of those exceedingly awesome boards from yester-year. But in regards to the 2.5Gbe post near the beginning of the thread, my brand new Asus TUF Gaming X570 Pro Wifi has an Intel i255v that I haven't found a single...

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    In that case yes, In something like a Fractal R5 or R6...cable management is still a piece of cake.

    Your CPU progression

    Intel 486 DX4 100MHz Cyrix 6x86 PR90+ AMD K5 PR200 <-- Ran this with a Peltier cooler at 166Mhz for a while and then it actually did perform nearly as fast as an Intel 200 MMX Processor AMD K6 II 366MHz (Not inspiring at all) AMD K6-III+ 450Mhz (Surprisingly one of my favorites) Intel Pentium...

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    My first tiny apartment 600 sq , I heated the second floor with a Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor overclocked. When I finally decided to rebuild the PC, a month later I realized my electric bill dropped by $17 and the second floor temperature had dropped by 5 degrees. That thing idled at...

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    Ok...Since you're asking for me to pull out my crystal ball. Basically, the next couple processor releases are fairly set, unless AMD or Intel screws up. Here's what's most likely to occur for the server market: Desktop processors can/may have more refreshes, alterations etc... Winter...

    The core i9 12900K used 2.3x power than the Ryzen 5950x in official benchmark

    So there's a couple things at play here. Intel chips have a burstable turbo mode speed that can only be sustained for a short period, they also have a different slower turbo mode that can run "x" number of cores indefinitely. The peak number is that short burstable number. AMD vCache...

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    A somewhat newer linux based router is firewalla. Evidently the company is a bunch of ex cisco engineers. It integrates well with Ubiquiti equipment as well. I'd look at Blue Plus or the Gold Models. You need Blue Plus at a minimum to get fq_codel to mitigate buffer bloat...

    Picking a home router

    DDWRT has been a pile of dung living off of its history running on the Lunksys WRT54G for over a decade. If you'd like to migrate into this decade, look at any of the superior forks such as Shibby Tomato the supported hardware for shibby's tomato is here: http://tomato.groov.pl/?page_id=69...
