    What of it?  People had the money, the dot com bubble was still kinda going.
     
    Go back to the 80s or 90s.  There were $50k workstations that any modern computing device destroys.  Just think about that for a moment, there were workstations that cost ~3x a family car of the era.
     
    As for performance, the increase over time is exponential.  We are at thousands of times the number of transistors now.

    If you can do OCCT on the small data set test mode for 15 minutes, you are stable enough for 99% of things.

    USB isnt an audio interface, its a data interface with a host/client architecture.  You need a USB host device (computer) to run a client device (DAC).
     
    You could, in theory, setup a Raspberry Pi to run headless and do the redirecting.  But you will always have latency issues.
     
    Get a DAC with optical input if you really want to solve the issue.

    The Thinkpad is of equal build quality to the Omen, full stop.

    I have seen tons of recent Dell laptops with random hardware level failures, like Ethernet and WiFi going AWOL.  Replace the WiFi card, no joy, the slot or PCH has failed in some way.
     
    Most systems are really made in the same manufacturing plants with similar parts.  The final assembly may be done somewhere else, but all the parts are generally the same quality minus actual design flaws.

    I would take HP's support/warranty over Lenovo's any day. Not to mention how much more widely available their parts are if needed.
     
    It seems that most people who whine about HP being bad are referencing experiences with $200-$300 junk. The reality is that any $200-$300 notebook is going to suck, regardless of brand.

    Video ports do not mean the board has integrated graphics.  They are just there because G series CPUs have integrated graphics and need those ports to use that feature.
     
    Any CPU that is not a 2200G/2400G/3200G/3400G will require a dedicated GPU.

    Put an 8 port SATA card in the system, get SATA power splitters, attach the drives to the case interior with double sided tape.

    Use software tools to see what they are currently set to, and manually enter those into the BIOS.
     
    CPU-Z gives you some of the timings, HWInfo displays most if not all of them.

    I believe you are mistaken. Since you have not listed a graphics card I assume you plugged into the video ports of the motherboard, but since the CPU does not have integrated graphics, the motherboard's video ports will remain inactive.

    Your CPU doesn't have integrated graphics. You will need a graphics card for that system.

    You disable XMP anyway and manually set your memory speed and timings.

    If memory serves, you should expect ~4.8 ghz @ ~1.3v.

    No, you'll need a motherboard with a 300 series chipset.
    So a H310, B360, H370, Z370, or Z390

    KarathKasun got a reaction from Mateyyy in Workstation PSU in a gaming CPU   
    That is not going to work very well.
     
    The rails are divided in a way taht makes it about like a 450w PSU + an extra 130w for an additional CPU.  If you find the CPU2 connector and replace the plug on it with a PCIe 6 pin connector, it might do the job.
     
    Also, those PSUs are old enough that they are dying due to cap aging.  I have had 3 fail from that workstations big brother, the XW8600.  Its better to just spend the extra 10 dollars to get an EVGA 500B.

    Stock cooler is fine if you dont OC.  2400mhz RAM is not going to kill your performance, and if you put some time into it you can generally hit at least 2933 with pretty much any modern DDR4 memory.  Timings will not be optimal, but that isnt what is really important with Ryzen, getting the fabric clock up is primarily what boosts performance.

    Unlikely with only an RX 570, but the higher the frame rate the more the low memory speed and subpar latency hurts performance so faster cards and less GPU demanding games (i.e. CSGO) will see bigger impact than GPU benchmarks like the Witcher 3
