  1. Mobo ram specs, What does O.C mean?

    ryzen memory overclocking has come a LONG way since the initial ryzen 1000's launch. I've heard AMD was more involved in optimizing the tracing for memory for each vendor that's releasing 400 series mobos. So, from what the consensus of the internet seems to be currently, 400 series motherboards provide (have not verified myself) an easier time hitting higher memory speeds. The zen arcitecture does (somewhat) scale with higher memory clocks, with most enthusiasts settling at the 3000-3200MHz range. I CAN offer the knowledge that spending money on highly binned, high clocked DDR4 won't add much performance over any standard 3200 MHz 2x8GB kit. (I have a 4133MHz Team kit of RAM that I was hoping might ease achieving higher mem clocks... but then my IMC was the bottleneck.) Some other things to consider: Timings are (in my opinion) starting to venture towards "baller" types of enthusiasts at this point. DDR4 is just too expensive to worry too much over 3200MHz 16-18-18-36 1.35v vs. 3200MHz 14-14-14-34 1.35v Both run at the same speed, but especially in ryzen systems with higher end GPU's, those timings START to make some noticeable difference. "noticeable" could be anything from 5-10 fps in one game. but another game might do better with, say, 3333MHz 16-18-18-36 1.35v kits than 3200MHz 14-14-14-34 1.35v. That has more to do with the engine/specific game running. overall, I see no reason 90% of users wouldn't be satisfied with 3200MHz 16-18-18-36 DDR4.
  2. SRH440 or M40X?

    Like, $70-$80 USD? The pair I got didn’t even seem used at all... “like new”.
  3. SRH440 or M40X?

    I really like my m40x’s. Refurbed on Amazon!
  4. X370 Question

    the Gaming-5 and Gaming-k7 had the same VRM layout.. weird that GB wouldn't opt for a third time go with their k5..?
  5. X370 Question

    I liked my K7 before it bricked itself. k5 is essentially the same? I have heard MSI's ryzen VRM's are less than ideal, but it hasnt seemed to limit anyone I've seen use an MSI mobo.. Asus has some decent entry x370 options?
  6. I ask to see if it’s possible it’s a lost compressed MP3 file converted to flac or a genuine flac file?
  7. Where/how was the flac file obtained?
  8. I thought it was a USB2 header?
  9. EQ recommendations?

    i haven't cut or boosted anything above 3dB and am happy with my results/new knowledge.. hahah
  10. EQ recommendations?

    To tighten up the low end (slightly muddy) and to cut some of the piercing highs. I've been messing with PEACE with the EqualizerAPO for a few hours now. Getting close to a nice and balanced enhancement of my cans. It isn't too suppressive to my ear to make me regret this decision.
  11. EQ recommendations?

    or perhaps this one?
  12. Should I buy a dac and amp? Some questions about amp+dac

    Honestly, same. I've had audiophile equipment for some time, but only just getting around to really tinkering with it.
  13. Ryzen 1600 + gtx 1080

    My advice: enjoy the new 1080!!
