  1. I've been mulling the possibility of waiting all the way until AM5 + DDR5 (Ryzen 5000?) with an APU that has atleast 6-8 CPU cores for the ultimate GPU-less SFF build. Please AMD, make it happen.
  2. Venezuela is just a poor Sweden or "third-world social democracy". The profit motive is still being employed and there has been no workers revolution.
  3. OK boomers I'm not going to reinvent the wheel so these are easily digestible:
  4. Freedom of speech under capitalism is merely a freedom to beg.
  5. I'm having trouble finding a reason to upgrade simply because my Ivy Bridge won't die.
  6. The x is less than 10 dollars more than the non x because of the holiday sale and it has the spire cooler which I wanted to give to my brother who has a 1700 with a stealth cooler provided in a prebuilt system.
  7. I just think it's hilarious because I want this system to fatally break. I want it to die so bad so I have a legit reason/ excuse to upgrade. Because as long as I keep saving my money or investing in stocks my mind just won't let me spend any more. I need it to die on its own. But it wont. Ivy bridge lives! And now it just keeps getting better for me. I'm at the point where I can either use this black friday to get a Ryzen 2600x platform upgrade for a total of 260 USD or just replace the ancient frankenstein collection of RAM in my current system for 40 bucks.
  8. I salvaged my current CPU, the i5 3450 from a prebuilt alienware PC I received as a gift in 2012. As parts started to break I had to replace just about everything around it and that's how I've rolled ever since. i5 3450 is a 4c,4t locked CPU with a 3.1 ghz base and 3.5 ghz boost clock. Now however, I've discovered something kind of cool. Apparently there's software designed to give this specific CPU a limited overclock The extra few MHz are a very welcome surprise and it made my day.
  9. I haven't played a new region since Black and White. Though I did revisit Hoenn for ORAS since Emerald was my first game. I would rather play fan-made games now.
  10. A continuation of: So here's what I did for this iteration of my PC: 1. Installed 2 120mm white LED ring fans by Aigo. 2. My thermaltake PSU was causing my system to crash, it had a faulty 24-pin connector, haven't had a single problem since installing this new EVGA 650GQ 3. Cable managed as best as I possibly could with this much hardware in this compact of a case with limited room behind the motherboard. Cables are just part of the system so I'm not too ashamed that they're a bit visible. 4. Installed a carrying handle to the top of my case. It's attached to the roof as well as an additional sheet of metal I added below to help distribute the carrying weight a little. 5. Installed a FebSmart N600 wifi card because why not? 6. Added an old PCI Creative Audigy 2. Purely aesthetic unless I can find drivers which I have been unsuccessful so far. 7. Installed a multimedia card reader with a USB 3 port to my 3.5'' bay. 8. Installed an old DVD drive I had laying around to a 5.25'' bay. 9. Installed in two of my 5.25'' bays a rack capable of holding several 3.5'' drives and adds a second intake fan to the front of my case in the form of an 80mm fan. (yay more airflow) 10. Added vented expansion slot covers to help aesthetics. This system is basically complete. The only way to go forward from here is to simply wait for my system (CPU, MB or RAM) to bite the dust and force me to upgrade because I still don't feel much motivation to do so and I figure the longer I wait the better the cheap used hardware gets that I can upgrade to. I might be willing to upgrade from this hand-me-down RX 580 when Ampere comes out. The lighting could be a little more in the center of the case. To fix this I could get an (aforementioned) GPU with some lighting, the only other option is if there are 92mm white LED fans for CPU coolers, but I'm not able to find any.

  12. I know AMD calls their turbo something different, but I'm curious if it works different than intel's built in turbo. Is Ryzen's only on one core? Or will it boost on all cores albeit not as strong like intel?
  13. Question's in the title. Like Ryzen 1&2000 CPUs from 1-3 years ago went way down in price, but Intel CPUs of the past 5,6 generations are still nearly full price. Why is this?
