    LTX 2019 Featuring DreamHack Questions Megathread

    Will the CPU delidding station also include substitute TIM and re-lidding? I'd hate to go home with two halves of a CPU

    JVC SP-FS8000. What are these?

    I thought I read full range somewhere, thanks!

    JVC SP-FS8000. What are these?

    I recently acquired a pair of these, but I know almost nothing about them, other than that they have 4 ohms impedance and can handle 16W. Does anyone know more about them, like their response range? I can't find any documentation for them.
  4. Looking at its specs, it isn't total overkill in as many areas as I expected for a $500 board. 64GB ram limit? https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/Z370-GODLIKE-GAMING/Specification

    i5 8400 vs ryzen 5 1600

    Yeah, 1600 over 8400 just because threads. If you're getting an aftermarket cooler anyway, consider the 1600x. $20-$30 for an extra 400MHz base clock speed was worth it to me

    1600x not throttling

    Using Cryorig's C7, which has a 100W TDP. The 1600x has a TDP of 95W, so it should work in ideal conditions, but the Node 202 has notoriously limited airflow. It's the best air cooler I could fit. Sometimes if I boot immediately after a heat crash it dies in a few seconds, so could be that
  8. I've been trying to overclock my 1600x, but it never seems to thermal throttle. Even with stock multipliers and voltage the instant it reaches 94 degrees, the computer cuts its own power. Nothing is ever damaged, though windows sometimes mentions not being shut down properly. I thought Ryzen is supposed to throttle and death at 94 degrees is making overclocking time consuming (node 202 build, working on cooling). Is this behavior normal? Notes: overclocking with Ryzen Master, monitoring with Core Temp, stressing with cinebench Mobo: AB350N-Gaming WiFi

    240mm Rad with 1 fan?

    Thank you, Shiv78!

    240mm Rad with 1 fan?

    Okay, that makes sense. Thanks!

    240mm Rad with 1 fan?

    After taking some measurements of the Node 202, I'm confident it can fit with a 25mm thick single-rad with a 12mm fan. A dual-rad should also fit under the GPU, but not with a second fan, so will a dual-rad with a single fan give a noticeable improvement over a single rad with fan?

    Would this power supply work?

    When in doubt about power consumption, pcpartpicker is your friend

    PSU cables (urgent/mid-build)

    The ports on your PSU are labeled and most cables only fit in one place. Just make sure your CPU power is 2x4 pin and isn't GPU power
