  1. From what I've seen from a Snazzy Labs video, you can put in a new SSD, transfer the OS to the new SSD and take out the OEM one. So you can upgrade it, but it's a bit fucky.
  2. If that is a review than my third-grade story telling is equvilant to Shakespeare. A review that doesn't feature any high detail testing is not a review, it is simply a reading of specifications, the average joe can do that.
  3. Would probably opt for a CX 550W, for some reason, Corsair only opted for a single PCIe 8pin power cable for the 450W model.
  4. Pricing is out for the coolers, $59.99, $75.99 and $89.99 for the 120mm, 240mm and 280mm respectively: https://www.amazon.com/ARCTIC-Liquid-Freezer-All-One/dp/B07WSDLRVP?th=1 Tomshardware Review: https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/arctic-liquid-freezer-ii-280-all-in-one-cpu-cooler,6376-2.html
  5. The VRM fan is certainly not new, Cryorig previously had a fan angled on the block towards the VRMs of a larger size, which in theory is a much better solution. Knowing Arctic's pricing this is likely to be VERY competitive, due to their minimalist packaging. Arctic is still swinging strong.
  6. You can say that again, especially if anyone talks badly about Seasonic/EVGA. They do allow PSAs, but they do not get pinned, so probably it would be top of the sub for a couple weeks, maybe that is enough? But if you do convince yourself to post on reddit to teach those braind-dead-plebs, I will heavily support you. If you do not want to bother, if you give me your permission, I can do it on your behalf.
  7. I know the Buildapc Reddit is unrelated to this forum. But a post like this would do wonders there.
  8. The f14lab review demonstrates high load on 12v and low load on minor deviating the 12v rail by .367v, not great performance by any stretch of the imagination, and these results are consistent with other reviews. OPP of the unit doesn't even work properly, in Computerbase DE's testing, when OPP kicked in the 12v rail was as low as 8.7v. So what is certain, the GB Bronze platform flops during protection tests, and cross-load testing it flops (which is expected for a group regulated units). Whilst other performance is decent, the previous two issues make it an instant no-buy for me. EDIT: More Seasonic GB Bronze platforms failing: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/antec-hcg-620/7.html This time, the 5v rail goes out of spec on high minor rail load. High 12v rail with low minor gives a near -0,4 voltage deviation. It also fails during transient response tests. I'd hate to be the one to say that x reviews are invalid, but generally the reviews that feature protections testing tend to have more weight. Because a unit can perform fine, but lacking certain protections, or those protections not working is a deal-killer.
  9. System Power 9 400W, bottom left of the first screen shot, which might I add is cheaper than any GB Bronze platform units you had listed.
  10. Nothing gives me a chub more than group regulation units having semi-decent regulation then getting absolutely shit on cross loads.
  11. Seasonic GB Bronze: XFX XT: Please, before you continue, observe the above.
  12. So are you going to provide a source or just do a fanboy screech? Reee, these people hate this unit because its actually trash, how dare they insult my senpai Seasonic. https://www.computerbase.de/2017-07/cooler-master-cougar-xfx-zalman-netzteil-test/ That is a review of the XFX XT Bronze, based on the very Seasonic GB Bronze platform the M12II used, and the original S12 used back in 2009. Most notably in that review is that cross loads put the voltage out of specification (i.e the every day load), and lacks OTP (and doesn't have any pseudo implementation of it). It doesn't take a genius to understand something that is a decade old is not a good fit for modern systems, like how you wouldn't match a GTX 280 with a Ryzen 5, but I might retract that comment due to this circumstance.
  13. So what's the chances of the platform, I am betting its not going to be a custom design with EVGAs history. And judging by the current FSP platforms quality doesnt look spectacular.
  14. @OrionFOTL @LukeSavenije The report on the release of the unit (GD, 2019) reported the OEM as FSP from Tomshardware Computex reporting in May.
  15. So its an FSP unit, and judging by its current price point and existing 80+ Gold FSP platforms it doesn't look great.
  16. I believe the new Neo Eco is a Focus platform based unit. Focus Plus @ Tomshardware https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/seasonic-ssr-750fx-focus-plus-750-gold-psu,5206-3.html NeoEco @ X Fastest News https://news.xfastest.com/review/review-focus/44260/antec-neoeco-gold-650w-review/ Can't do direct image links because I'm on mobile sorry.
  17. Do we have any information on the GD (2019, August). I've seen it pop up recently at a really low price.
  18. Man you are not having any luck with people these days. Thats two times now.
  19. I can attest to this, I had Trend Micro on my main PC and it gave me huge latency spikes when opening any file / web-page.
  20. From what I have noticed with my 3600 on a NH-D15S is that some monitoring software appear to the CPU as a workload and the CPU boosts, causing a high idle temperature. I went from using HWINFO to Ryzen Master and my temps went from 40-50C to 28-35C with occasional spikes to 45C when a background process was doing something. With a pretty lax fan profile (CPU fan speed and case fan speed does not go above 60%) I get 60-70C while gaming and 75C max on realbench stress test. If anyone is having issues with temperatures, I emplore you to lower PPT by 10-15W (88W is default), in my case, it lowered temperature by 10C and only took a 100 MHz hit to clockspeed. Lowering PPT as some of you may already know is more effective than undervolting and less of a hassle generally. You can easily get 3.6 GHz on a PPT of 44-50W. TL;DR - Reduce PPT by 10W or so to reduce CPU temperatures - Only use CPU-Z + Ryzen master to monitor temperatures - All other software is percieved as a work load - Stock cooler is not great (its only the wraith stealth, not the spire), the 8700 also had issues with the stock cooler being shite for boosting
  21. Forgive me, I have sudden moments of shit to the brain. More often than others some may say.
  22. Should I tell him that Superflower makes the majority of EVGA units?
  23. This is a help fourm, if you are going to spread mis-information and make jokes, you don't belong here... Sorry.
