  1. Since the T480 died I've been using my MSI as a replacement laptop and it sucks so much. I know in my head that upgrading from an i5 2410m to a i5 3320m is not that much in raw CPU performance, but it really was a nice overall upgrade. I ended up buying a ThinkPad X230 because it was nice and small (I've been using a netbook and I really appreciate how small the footprint is), it comes with a battery, and I can RAM/BCLK/iGPU OC on it.

    In Cinebench R15, it's only about 30cb faster by stock, but it feels a lot more responsive than the MSI for general day to day tasks. It also has a competent iGPU that can actually not drop any frames at 768p, and it is built a shit ton better (because it's a business laptop). The performance does not really bother me as day to day, it feels the same as the T480 despite having half the cores, half the threads, a quarter of the ram, and like half the single core performance. 

    It's 768p display is actually a upgrade from the MSI. It is just smaller at the same resolution -> higher PPI, and so it feels nicer to use. The panel (despite it being 6bit TN) is actually a upgrade as well; colours look better, contrast is better, and it gets brighter. Keyboard is fantastic as always, even with the 'gimped' layout.

    The trackpad is atrocious because of the drivers. Physically, I feel it is fine and it may work nice in Linux but in Windows it is unusable. Too sensitive and jittery, and it's about as large as my AirPods Pros case. Another issue is that it interferes with the trackpoint polling rate if it is enabled, and so I have disabled it in the bios.

    The only issue with this laptop is the SD card reader is a bit wonky because I bought a used one off of eBay and the chassis part of that is broken, but the motherboard is not cracked so I believe I am fine. The only thing I have done to this is upgrade the wifi card from the stock Centrino 2000 N to a Realtek 8812AE (had it laying around). I had to tape pin 51 on the card in order to get Bluetooth working. I used ivyra1n to 'jailbreak' bios unlock the x230 in order to bypass the wifi card whitelist, but in the end I will be using coreboot because I want to OC using XMP and XTU does not work for me on the 'jailbroken' bios to oc the iGPU.

      Yeah Thinkpads are great Laptops, have always been a fan of them. Also nice Main Tower you got there. You said you've got AirPods Pros, so which iPhone do you have ?

      6s+, runs fine on iOS 10.3.3. I am tempted to get a 12 pro max plus ultra 5g super xtreem ROG but.. no 120hz = no buy, and LTPO is next year.. 


      My first thinkpad was the t480 and it had 4 motherboard failures in 2 years, and yeah one of them was it crapped out on me a month after warranty expired.

  2. This is the current song that represents the mood of the past year (2019-2020)

  3. I might've picked up my caffeine addiction again hmmm

  4. Red dead redemption 2 on PC looks absolutely fantastic, even when I'm playing at lowest settings at 4k it beats out metro exodus at lowest


    but it gets even better because it supports async .. higher averages

    AND it gets even better because there's a lot of options that don't impact frame rates much and makes it so much prettier:

    AF to 16x

    Texture quality to ultra

    reflections and mirror quality to high

    medium volumetric fog (far), ultra (close)

    Particles, tesslearion, fur quality, far shadow quality all high


    averaging about 58fps, range is 50-60fps on a badly oc'd VII, which is just a worse 1080ti/2080 or a slightly better 5700XT


    There's not much CPU usage on my 3600, mostly all GPU.

      Impressive since this is a game engine from a tennis game released in 2006

  5. i haven't watched the movie or anime but I very much enjoy this song :) 

  6. my iPhone 6s is starting to feel a bit slow, probably because I haven't done a full format in two years and also because I always run low power mode. I turned it off for a couple of days and it really sped up EVERYTHING to "brand new" feeling. 

    I guess discord and safari is now too demanding to run at a locked 60fps with everything loading almost instantly on a 1.3ghz dual core ARM cpu from 2015 lol

  7. What die do you have? Download thaiphoon burner and check Edit: google everything tbh when it comes to memory overclocking. I'm having fun with mine right now and there's a lot of goodies / tricks that isn't all on one website, but rather scattered across the internet buildzoid is a great resource though the first thing I recommend is finding your maximum fCLK (infinity fabric) overclock as well as your maximum CPU undervolt (let PBO do the overclocking, that's what I heard was the best/easy method) run XMP and do a memtest for a hour or two, if it's stable at that fCLK with both a memory stress test (XMP default) and a prime95 AVX test then start tinkering with ram (you want to stress memory and CPU because infinity fabric does two things: CCX to CCX communication and CCX to memory communication) assuming you have a good ram kit, see if you can match it up 1:1 fCLK and mCLK (memory speed, remember it's /2 because DDR. eg, DDR4 3200 is actually running at 1600MHz) it's not worth desync for fCLK and mCLK if the difference is <133MHz , but it's worth it if it's over (eg, running DDR4 3200 with a 1833 fCLK is worth it, but running DDR4 3600 with a 1800 fCLK is better than running 3600 and 1833) maximum safe voltage for ddr4 is 1.45v. Bump your ram to 1,45v for the remainder of the overclock to figure out what's the fastest/tightest configuration I'd start off with running ryzen memory calculator and using those numbers as a beginning start, then tightening up the values. Only enter in the primaries (CAS, tRCD, tRP, tRAS) and then stress for a bit then lower the numbers down. Once you've lowered CAS, tRCD, tRP and tRAS down to as low as it'll go while being stable, try tweaking with tRC minimum tRC value = tRP + tRAS Once stable, put in the tertiary timings from the ryzen calculator i have no idea what to do at this point as I'm starting this point right now.. memory overclocking will take you a good while though. I recommend 8hrs stress test as the ambient temperature of the ram itself will affect stability
  8. my 3770k lived it's life almost always overclocked for me so I have no idea how it would do under stock, but it never dipped below my overclock (4.4GHz, never anything less) my laptops would always drop under base clock though to save power though, even on AC (core 2 duo t7600, i5 540m, i5 2410m, i5 8350u)
  9. 1.5v at stock under idle to get high boost but stock load is like 1.35v or less high voltages at idle is apparently fine for zen2 because it doesn't draw much amps, but once it gets to a high load then it'll drop the voltage down because more amps something something 7nm is very small, very delicate is what I remember from reddit lol
  10. it lowers it's clockspeed to save power, same thing happens on my 3600 and my 8350u laptop use ryzen master to see which cores are parked/deep sleep
  11. 4k optimized only RAM isn't much of a boost in 3dmark or superposition since those are GPU tests but it helps a lot on ryzen for some reason, on intel something something not infinity fabric and on ryzen something something everything is related to infinity fabric which runs at ramspeed tbh mine is decoupled, 1600 mCLK and 1833 fCLK https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/39175511? another issue I guess is that my 3600 doesn't boost properly, and it's really badly binned. 1.375v ish stock (-20mV) for 39.5x - 40.5x.. 1.325v is maximum 'safe' voltage edit: my stock XMP is 3000MHz C16
  12. mine was done at i think XMP memory my 3600 seems to be a shitty performer, but oh well, it's still 2-3x faster in games than my 3770k why the fuck is 1080p extreme harder to run than 4k?
  13. https://www.3dmark.com/spy/8132273 8 996 graphics score, the HBM OC helps me in games with the lows but not the averages that's with my everyday OC, I'll go run 3dmark and superposition 1080p extreme in a bit
  14. you need powertable mod there's one that allows you go +100MHz more on the memory (1300 total) but going any more requires to use the ones that force more voltage (as far as I know) I made one (just figured out which lines were different from the vanilla one, then changed the values to be larger) just so I can reach 1337GB/s bandwidth I don't run it very overclocked because if I wanted to do that, I need waterblock, I have a big voltage wall at ~1900MHz I run 1070mV / 1880MHz core, and 1000MHz mem (I heard that HBM doesn't like being overclocked, I don't game much anyways and I want this card to last as looooooooooong as possible)
