    Ryzen 3000/5000 Overclocks

    5900x with -30 CO yields that range of improvement (12%), minframerates are higher as well for what single core boosts are achieved. Most wont really care about 5-10% in this day and age but gamers (under 4k res) and some various other groups will. I read up on the previous zen chips and...

    Throwing money at my build - AIO fan replacement

    Noctua/Artic fans yeild some top results, I'm sure some other brands can compete but these two should have better sound:perf ratio's

    looking for some enterprise SSD recommendations.

    MLC nand some years ago was sufficient to meet enterprise requirements. The only primary difference between what is marketed as enterprise is different thermal throttling curves and cooling and perhaps anti static/shock resistance ratings. The actual writes/TBW is sufficient and most drives will...

    Seagate reliability concerns

    Specific models of seagate see upwards to 10% rate of failure, if its in your future budget spend the extra 10-20% for hitachi/wd drives. I had 5 seagates of which 3 exhibited issues in under 6 months or failed in under 2 years of light usage.

    Want to Buy WTB: SSD/NVMe PCI 3/4.0 1/2tb + Galaxy S21 Ultra 512GB + Nocuta A15 140mm

    thx but ill probably just wait until the 970 evo plus drops to 299 again for boxing day or whatever it was for gen3, already have a 2tb pro from some years ago and the difference is negligible. I somehow got the 2tb pro for 270 second hand as well which I wish I snagged a few more when people...

    Help with $700 PC build

    Buy CPU/RAM/CASE/NVMe used, buy PSU/MOBO new. 20-40% in savings low risk of defective parts. Also way more viable given the budget, 13 years later the cost of your build is the price of one item now adays, I used to have ultra value budget builds in the past getting 2cnd/3rd gen hardware second...

    Ivy Bridge Acer Veriton UEFI bios flash?

    the architecture between win 8 and 10 is quite similar, the worst case scenario is you lose your activation key which costs you 15 bucks for a new one.

    Want to Buy WTB: SSD/NVMe PCI 3/4.0 1/2tb + Galaxy S21 Ultra 512GB + Nocuta A15 140mm

    probably holding out for next gen pci-e 4 nvme drives, seems silly to buy overpriced pcie 4.0 hardware that yields barely any improvement over hte 960pro 2tb i currently have. only the 980 pro and I think 2 other models being one WD and another provide a decent bump. The non pro 4.0 entry level...

    Input on 1080p gaming

    Random comments, If you are not getting 1st gen hardware 2cnd hand market is generally ideal for every compontent BUT a PSU, SSD/HDD and sometimes motherboards assuming no reciept and recent purchase is involved. I've saved probably 10k across builds just by a quick craiglist search for various...
