    Puget Systems Confirm Issues Also on Samsung 980 PRO

    I used to think of storage as something that you don't really need to worry about firmware updates. Some companies don't even make software to update ssd firmware. I checked though and my 980 pro is the latest firmware. I remember updating it several months ago. Hope it holds up.

    I've had 2 b650 boards and both are totally fine for my uses. An asus b650m tuf wifi with a 7700x and a gigabyte b650m aorus ax with a 7950x.

    Are there likely going to be new AM5 mobos released when Zen X3D releases?

    As long as they have plenty of inventory lined up for the current stuff, no reason to add skus. There are a ton of options out there already.

    What causes tempered glass panel to explode?!

    It is safe in that it will give you small cuts when handled instead of slicing open arteries. That's why vehicles use it.

    GPU hotspot?

    nothing wrong with an 88c hot spot. That means the core temp is probably in the 60s.
