    Google - An Unethical Representation of the Truth

    And that's why Ive started using Google as my main search engine 20 years ago. I want relevant results. Not just a bunch of pages to pop up with the most views. That would just be porn anyway hehe Also. Big companies need good regulations. Not control. Google is at the same time under fire by left and right at the moment. Which is a bit ironic really.
  2. microHDMI is the worst connector of all time. Unfortunately. microSD support is still capped seriously. 50MBps versus the old 25MBps as I can see. I know I can use the faster USB 3.0 but I would honestly rather use super fast micro SD cards to store everything if I can. Hoping for Compute Module 4 to come out That's 42 USD Pi 3B+ is 50 USD or 44.5 EUR in Croatia as an example.
  3. Will do Yeah. My main gripe with AiO testing is that people don't use some control fans also to have a "normalized" result. That data is also valuable together with the data what you are getting out of the box for the price. PS: Irony is I live like 1 hour away from the EKWB company. Wish they would open a hugely discounted "factory" store hehehe
  4. Of course I'm talking about it being standardized. And yes. I know it's freaking far fetched (to say the least about it), but it was simply an exercise in "form factors" which we don't have at the moment (and won't see) and that I would personally like to see. I honestly (personally) as mentioned before don't need a single PCI-E slot at all.
  5. That is pretty much a given of course in the start
  6. Yep. Had the Abit nf7-s v2.0. Nforce 2 was the name I believe as an example.
  7. Yeah. I mean. It's a conversation starter really. I don't expect anyone doing it really unfortunately. But I would be happy as a kid to have a single high performance CPU and GPU with a lets say a big MBO monoblock cooling all the VRMs together with a GPU and CPU
  8. Don't know what x86 has to do with it and/or memory as the GPU memory is on the same package as the GPU. Two stacked HBMs of 16 gigs on Vega cards is plenty to start with with even "last gen" hardware wise.
  9. Hi guys. I'm just dropping some inspiration that I've got about a thing that I would personally like to see and think it would be cool. Seeing as GPU's with HBM memory combinations on a single package are a thing. What do you think about the possibility of having a GPU socket together with a CPU socket? The upfront cost on a MBO would be higher (seeing as you would need additional VRMs for power delivery towards the GPU), and connector wise you would only need to put the PCI-E power connectors let's say next to the 24 pin connector or somewhere along those lines. All the downsides on the "size" problem already exist on the CPU. If you wish to use big ass air tower coolers. You already need to have a clearance in the case for those so the same space would be needed for the GPU part. Or going "low profile" with AiO solutions and whatnot. I've had a PC since the 1990 and assembled my own since the 1999 PIII era. I've found that in the last 10 years or so I've gradually went the route of MicroATX and now Mini-ITX . I've simply haven't had the real need to have anything else connected to the PC itself other than the GPU for some time. (literally, only thing I need missing on my mini-ITX is a 10 gig NIC). I think most of the people really also don't use anything else on their PC. And the era of me wanting and/or needing a TV card or 15 years ago popular Skystar satellite cards, PCI audio etc. are a non-issue anymore for me. What are your thoughts on that?
  10. Hi, I also have the SF600 hehehe 3D printing a "standoff" for the PSU would really not be a problem for me. I print ABS almost exclusively anyway so 100 degrees or similar temperature wouldn't really be a problem. (not that it will ever reach 100, that would be, well, bad ) I'm in between right now between the X42 and the Cooler Master Master Liquid 140mm. Unfortunately. Looks like testing of AiO (120 and 140mm) is really not popular so will scour the internet and try to find some comparison. or at least being tested on a same CPU and frequency.
  11. Hi guys. Lots of answers really quickly. Thank you. The point is that I have a Phanteks Shift (non x). So whatever I choose it will be paired with noctua fans in push-pull. (I know, you don't get that much extra with 2 fans, but I have them already. I already have a 120mm Cooler Master Mater Liquid or whatever the name is paired with R7 1700 It's working OK @3.85 GHz and 1.375 peak V (compromise between noise and performance). As I plan to transfer this one to our second PC I'm thinking of getting something with the best performance without going the custom loop route honestly since it's expensive, and even though I have a 3D printer I don't have time to design and print custom mounts and everything and the whole thing would probably end up being at least 300-400 USD.
  12. Hi guys. Anybody have a recommendation for the best 140mm AiO. Fans are not important. I have my Noctuas already and they do the job nicely. Only important factor is that it is AM4 compatible . Tried searching, but nothing solid I could find on the forum. So sorry in advance if I've missed some topic.

    AMD Is Working On A Monster 64-Core Threadripper

    There is one thing people always loose track of kind of. Licenses and the price of those. Linus even said that he doesn't see the benefit od a 64C TR. I sure do. It would be the end all, be all rendering power house for the single CPU workstation. With an ability to squeeze a bit more out of the all core clock with OC if you have a capable cooling system. I wouldn't go EPYC unless going for the dual CPU setups. (talking medium size office that renders). Having a dual 64Core (so 128 Core, 256 Thread) rendering monster and also have other "monsters" for work because at the end of the day. The license costs the same if you put it on an 9900K, 2700X, 3850X or some 64 Core thread ripper beast. And for a lot of workflows. Licenses cost sometimes as much as the whole system. V-ray Sketchup - 250 EUR yearly V-Ray Unreal - 340 EUR yearly V-ray render node - 120 EUR yearly. Sketchup Pro - 300 USD yearly Sketchup Studio - 1200 USD yearly
  14. I wholeheartedly agree. But then agian. Those people don't care about +-10% performance and would be pleased with an 2700x strictly for gaming even.
  15. Everything (gaming wise) relies solely on the Overclocking headroom. These chips were NEVER expected to run freakishly high clock out of the box because you still need to be able to slot even the 16 Core 32 Thread beast into an existing B350 motherboard and not have the VRM blow in your face. (talking stock, if you overclock on most of them it will happen).
