  1. So I installed and opened up the Epic games launcher today. Shortly after this I noticed my fans are ramping up. With a quick check I noticed that the Epic Games launcher, while open on the desktop, was ramping things up to 95-100% load. 

    Not that this is a new thing. Apparently this has been going on sense Epic games launcher 2.90


    So fun fact. Want a light stability tester? Install the epic games launcher and leave it open on the desktop. Works great. :whistling:

  2. It seems that the manufactures are all doing a cost cutting measure. One example is the MSI RX 5700xt was reviewed by another outlet and they showed how the thermal paste job was sub par and thermal pads used only covered 1/3 to 1/2 of the memory modules to interface with the heat spreader. Which they choked it up to being a Money saving measured as in not wanting to retool. I am not sure the accuracy, they also made it clear that it was speculation. 

    I got a speculation for yah guys. If you want to compete in the market. Its gotta be able to OC. I could oc a freaking GTX 480 and that in 2 way SLI on air with the reference model cooler. And now this one wont OC because it cant handle the heat...... No excuses, That's just poor manufacturing. 


    But if you are not going to OC or anything then you will be peachy. A friend of mine just got one of these by my suggestion based on the best BANG for buck. He is super stoked. But in the same right I would not be pleased at all.

  3. Well with 115X and several others I guess this could present quite the issue. However for me I have only ran Processor coolers that either A have a special backplate you install once and then use another set of bolts to install with spring tension. 

    Or I have simply enjoyed socket 2011 that has 4 tapped holes right on the Ziff and hold down assembly. no mobo bending, no BS, screw and go. 

    After that I do not want to talk about amd and their plastic whatever its suppose to be.

    get a couple goats they will eat everything in sight

    Cheapest option by far. 

    I checked the prices on those Radio controlled lawn mowers. 3800 bare min. and I doubt that comes with the controller.

    LN2. https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-9-3950x-cpu-world-record-overclock-5-4-ghz-cinebench-r15/

    Looking forward to Silicone Lottery high-bin chips OC results under water,.. 4.5 GHz across all 16-cores would be sweet. 

    Yeah that would be sweet but an LN2 bench does not quantify real world performance. That is an awesome suicide shot but I am still ever skeptical IF AMD actually is worth the hype this time. Hell I am still in the 32nm stone age here and happy with it to a degree. While AMD is considerably cheaper will it hold up to the test of time. And in 6 months after AMD does this release is intel gonna pull a hat trick and release their modern day lga775 q6600 or the lga1366 920 and bury AMD for another 5 years min? 

    Just my 2 cents. not trying to bash.

    the whole mess is getting kinda hectic imo... what with Intel quietly talking away/down their flaws, and AMD drastically changing the game, and now Intel backing down their prices... and i know that several of you have already gotten way far away from Intel for security reasons, and AMD's higher level of performance of late... I too am seriously considering retiring this machine in favor of an AMD platform... It may take me a little while to get it together, but the security issues are my main motivation... you know unless Intel gets their shit together this is on the table...

    You got a point there CJ
