  1. Not sure why you or anyone is considering the 10900k , 3900x is much better option for productivity and good enough for gaming. 10900k is for the FPS snob that wants 300 instead of 275 or 280

      Yet another intel fan boy who likes to throw money out the window for the same cpu every year . And also get jobbed on a new motherboard

      good enough for gaming

      This is exactly why people get the 10900k. Its better for a task that they do.


      you say:


      3900x is much better option for productivity and good enough for gaming

      how about I change that to use the 10900k instead of the 3900x:



      the 10900k is a much better option for gaming and good enough for productivity.

      it's just a change in words.

  2. Im currently running a 2700x non-oc, but it does ramp up to 4.2 GHz using XFR. I am using a EVGA CLC 280mm AIO watercooler. When looking at my temps, msi afterburner and hwmonitor both say my cpu is at 71 C, but when I look at MSI Command Center and EVGA flow control, i get a reading of around 63. Which software should I trust? I've heard HWmonitor has been acting a bit strange with the new ryzen systems.
  3. lmao, certainly it makes your computer much more hotter when it has a bra
  4. Hi guys, I just bought a Corsair HG10 water cooler with the H60 on my r9 290x for cooler and quieter operation, but I then later saw that my card is slightly bent towards the end (PCIe power side). Is this normal or OK, or could it potentially break my card? The card works flawlessly now with no errors at all. I'm just asking down the road if it could damage it. Thanks.
  5. you mean keep an eye on the motherboard temps right? my cpu temps are barely 60 under full load
  6. i dont believe that my motherboard is cheap is it?
  7. so my mosfet wouldnt burn to a crisp
  8. Hi guys I just upgraded my terrible FX 6300 to an intel 4690k on the z97 pc mate motherboard. Currently i am getting about 4,4 GHz on 1.25 volts. If i say go for 4.6 or 4.7 at 1.3 could i burn the vrm on my motherboard? i burnt my first asrock motherboard with my fx 6300 where it was near 1.55 volts at 4.6 ghz. in conclusion, would 1.29 ish volts be bad for my motherboard i think it has a 4 + 2 power phase design. thank you
  9. what happened was the socket cover slipped out of my hands
  10. Hi, about 1 and a half weeks ago, I bought a 4460 with a Z97 PC Mate, however I decided to return both of them the next day because of some reasons I shall not bore you with. However, upon uninstalling my CPU from the motherboard and putting back the socket cover I bent 20 pins. MSI agreed to send me a new one for the cost of 45, however I cannot return it for a refund. I will be saving until the summer for a new haswell CPU, and would the 4690k be enough for my r9 290 if I decide to buy a 144 Hz for high refresh rate gaming, or should i save for an i7 haswell CPU, thank you so much.
  11. wow i got the z97 pc mate and 4460 i reinstalled windows 3 times and also drivers all of them, updated bios, and i somehow got lower fps in gta 5 i might have to consider returning them both, and sticking to my old fx 6300
  12. one thing: i should invest about 60 dollars more for a z97 pc mate rather than a garbage h81 right? because i want stability as well
  13. how so, i mean are there any cases where an fx 6300 be even as good as an i5? its single core performance is terrible, and it consumes way to much power for that terrible performance
