    What is this "b-die" that I keep reading about in various threads?

    Do you mean Thaiphoon Burner? http://www.softnology.biz/files.html

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    The 5800x was in stock on Amazon for several hours today. I think this bodes well compared to 30 second "IN STOCK" times we're used to seeing. Actually ANT ONLINE has the 5800x still in stock right now for $479.98

    Optimizing Threadripper ? thread! How to get the most out of it

    I have a last gen Threadripper 2950x. I wanted to do a custom water loop on the CPU. I mistakenly ordered a 360 copper radiator instead of a 420 so I just kept both of them to cool the CPU and anything else I want to add later. These builds are complicated and I did not like the idea of cheaping...

    What ya using your 1x slots for?

    I use an Asus Xonar Essence STX in an x1 slot My Mellanox Connectx-2 is a PCI-Epress x8 fiber card. I do not think you are going to find 10Gbit network cards using an x1 slot.

    Where is this urgency for new GPUs coming from?

    Maybe so.... I tried mining for a while in 2017 before the bottom fell out. There could be some teeth to what is about to happen here in December concerning Ethereum. When Ethereum 2.0 happens it becomes ASIC resistent again. It has been shown the RTX 3090 does about 122M/H mining Ethereum. I...

    Where is this urgency for new GPUs coming from?

    Well, I imagine if NVidia sold $175 million of 30 series GPUs to cryptominers, that could make cards more difficult to get. Ya think???;) https://wccftech.com/nvidia-allegedly-sold-175-million-worth-ampere-geforce-rtx-30-gpus-to-miners/...

    DDR4 for Zen 3 build - Mhz vs CAS latency?

    I just recently upped to 4 sticks of Trident Z Neo 14-14-14-34 (64GB) I've been a die hard G.Skill buyer for at least 10 years. I've seen more issues with other RAM brands than G.Skill including Corsair and I used to buy Corsair myself...

    Did Nvidia's 30x0 launch diminish likelihood you will wait for AMD big Navi?

    Yes, I had stopped looking after a week as the urge wore off. I got on with life. Then those devils at eVGA told me I could buy one of theirs. That's okay. I have one in hand. I'm not going to fuss about 2 top cards trading the leader board back on forth on various benchmarks. That just tells...

    Did Nvidia's 30x0 launch diminish likelihood you will wait for AMD big Navi?

    Having gotten my 3090 last week I suppose this POLL is moot. As AMD release day nears I cannot help but fear being a bit butthurt if the 6900XT just kills. If so, still... good for them. I'm glad AMD has their head in the game. Competition benefits us all.

    Who is buying a 3090?

    I finally got around to installing it after 3 days. It's thicker than a 1080ti Strix but not any longer.

    Who is buying a 3090?

    Others have said it and I find truth in it: "Don't buy the first major revision of nVidia tech". The second generation will have many bugs worked out and usually on a smaller lithography. RTX 2080 ti for me just wasn't leaps and bounds faster than the 1080ti Strix so I skipped RTX 20xx...
