    GoldenLag got a reaction from mardon85 in Help with 8 pin GPU connections   
    well this time its about ordering custom cables if needed.
    as seen here
     
    its not heat over time, its more about sudden inrush of current which burns the connector. at least when it comes to your PSU

    Base clock is the minimum clockspeed all cores can run at in a workload. 
     
    More cores means lower base clock. The 24 core might have higher base clock. But the 32 core has the same clock for 24 cores. 
     
    Just fyi

    GoldenLag got a reaction from Mephi00 in Differences between MSI Armor and MSI Gaming X Cards   
    no you dont. why would you need an engineer from MSI to answer a question you can check yourself. 
     
    its got worse cooling, while it doesnt cover the memmory chips the same as the gaming X. 
    it appears to be using a lower end VRM aswell. i say it seems, because i havent looked into the specific VRM chips used. 
    considering you will be water cooling, its entirely down to the silicon lottery.

    GoldenLag got a reaction from seon123 in Reliable Or Not - EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 80+ GOLD   
    Its reliable, but its a singlerail, so not really preffered at higher wattages. 
     
    And if you are spending 200$ on a PSU. There are better options. Or cheaper options.

    There isnt a reason why you wouldnt be able to.
    Would suggest getting sormthing else.

    GoldenLag got a reaction from Magnetar_Byte in GPU that will run 4-6 Monitors and be modern enough to run Games?   
    me neither actually, but apperantly its a thing. 
     
    so sadly i dont have any details for you

    other than that this is a thing. 
    windows can select a primary rendering (high performance) GPU, as such you should be fine running some cheap GPU together with a newer one. 
     
    there are also expencive dedicated display GPUs
     
    https://pcpartpicker.com/product/8yvRsY/visiontek-video-card-900614
     
    like these things, that do 6 displays at once. in the end, id probably just get something low end to pair next to the main GPU. 
     
    kinda sad that 6 monitor support is seen as a enterprise feature.

    it does say that there are 2 variants of the focus fx. 
     
    pre and post january 2018. 
     
    focus gx being a new PSU introduced that has yet to show signs of the issues present with the old focus. 
     
    https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/phanteks-amp-series-550w-power-supply-review/3
     
    which shown here doesnt have the ripple issues on overload. which you could find in the sources. the Phanteks amp being focus gx based.

    if you want Chiclet style keyboard, id look at the surface keyboard instead. 
     
    bluetooth receiver needs to support 4.0 or higher. 
     
    edit: id also probably not look at wireless keyboards. which both the surface and magic keyboard are.

    GoldenLag got a reaction from Trentonxx in good XMP ram for ryzen 3000 under 200€   
    No. Infinity fabric rarely runs past 3733mhz. As such you will need to manually input timings if you get that kit, or performance will actually drop. 
     
    You could also just get a XMP kit and not care.

    i linked that specific kit with PCP as its timings says it can only be B-die. CJR doesnt run like that, neither does rev E. 
     
    https://it.pcpartpicker.com/product/YTKcCJ/patriot-viper-steel-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-4000-memory-pvs416g400c9k
     
    its decent B-die. 
    its on a board to board basis, so you cant exactly check it outside of checking for people who test. 
     
    mid-high end x570 seems to hold up pretty well. and if you really want the best. ITX and DTX boards is what you would be looking at (tho it does happen that they fuck up the tracing). 
     
    any decent tracing should do the trick. 
    it does not care about which chipset the board uses. nor the memmory VRM (you would need to be using some bottom of the barrel VRM and a lot of memmory for that to matter. Gigabyte uses the same memmory VRM from the B450 DS3H to the x570 auros Xtreme. and the overclocks really do not care)
    TL;DR at a speed of 3933mhz or greater. take these timings 19-19-19-39 as outlined here and divide the speed by those timings. if its greater than 200, its b-die. if its lower, its not. 
     
    at worst you get crazy rev E or you get what you want, good B-die
     
    its a way to check if its B-die. its not super accurate. and there are really good bins of E-die that can slip past.

    yup. depends on the die offcourse, 
    nope. 
    you can do lethal voltage on B350. offcourse you shouldn expect great memmory tracing
    with some SOC and some extra voltage, that should be relativly easy. 
     
    can allways step down a bit to 14-16-16-36. which would be rather unremarkable. 
     
    im assuming you get a good board that will have good memmory tracing.

    here is cheap B-die. set manual voltage and timings to get 3733mhz  14-14-14-34 perhaps. 
     
    you can probably do better. otherwise just grab some cheap cl16 kit of 3000-3600mhz.
