Re: The big reveal!

Not only have AMD reinvented their CPUs and public image, they also appear to have reinvented the wheel when it comes to actually installing them!

Re: Purchase ink refill kit or buy new cartridge

My opinion? I'd put it on ebay and buy a good laser MFP. Even if you end up buying used, your toner costs will be exponentially lower than your ink costs and over a couple years a laser printer will...

Re: I browsed the members list

Same, like we said before I think the forum model in general is something that's on it's way out. I blame Youtubers and Google for removing the need for a good ole tech forum/community :pcmad:

Re: Gaming build help

I'll adjust my wording there, it does support Dual GPUs... it's just really pointless and not recommended :P

Re: The big reveal!

That's one thing I will say on nomenclature.. God only knows why they gave their SERVER CPUs a really Gamery name like 'EPYC'. If it stood for something I guess I could let it slide... but as far as...

Re: Gaming build help

At launch, Ryzen had problems with memory compatibility and overclocking. Most manufacturers have released a bundle of BIOS updates and microcode hotfixes since launch - they've also got a lot more...

Re: Gaming build help

I'd go for a Ryzen CPU, probably a Ryzen 5 1600, and divert any money you save towards going one level up on the GPU.

Intel stuff stays expensive for ages, I mean Sandy bridge CPUs are still a...

Re: The big reveal!

While it is true that Intel tends to beat AMD on single-core performance and IPC, most people who would buy a higher end CPU usually have some reason to - almost all productivity workloads really...

Re: Inexplicable hitching in all games.

Are you monitoring temps?

What you're experiencing is what reviewers will call the '0.1% Low' framerate. Essentially, if you're pulling a fairly consistent say, 100fps, and for one or two frame...

Re: Budget Gaming ( sub 100$)

Q6600 is a fully fledged quad core, albeit an old one. If you ever watched LTT or Tech YES City on Youtube they make a lot of videos about reusing old stuff. a Q6600 is the beating heart of a lot of...

Re: The big reveal!

The official AMD video shows the 12 core (1920X) out-ranking an i9-7900X in a Cinebench R15 benchmark test. That's the lesser of the two chips as well, the other being the 16 core which in a...

Re: Buy or build?

Clearly, given that you have spec'd two 1080Tis - you're not really interested in good price to performance... and instead just want the best performance that you can get in the enthusiast market.

It just seems to fit that his GPUs were having some real problems letting him adjust voltage, then when swapping the cards around to sort a firmware issue it suddenly bricks the board :lol:

Re: Computer Not Booting

GPU die can take a buttload of voltage, but if the initial 'spike' required to turn the GPU on was too high for the PCI-E slot to handle it could in theory damage mobo power delivery. Depends on how...

Re: Computer Not Booting

Well, this is just speculation but:-

GPUs do draw some power through the PCI-E socket. Obviously, they also get most of their power directly from the PSU; but they do take 60-75W through the PCI-E...

Re: Computer Not Booting

Unfortunately it sounds like you've been pretty thorough. RAM won't usually stop a machine powering on even if it's faulty - it will just halt the system at POST (fans and power on, just no display...

Re: Computer Not Booting

Best thing to do when troubleshooting this kind of issue is to immediately strip your machine of everything that it doesn't need to boot.

Namely, remove all GPUs (utilise on-board video if you...
