  1. A friend has this semi-modular PSU with a plug for SATA and one plug for peripherals (aka molex) I was wondering if he could plug a SATA power cable into the peripherals plug and use power from there as SATA. I know at least on corsair supplies SATA and peripherals power are the same plug so I'm thinking they might be interchangeable on this particular power supply as well: Sirtec High Power 750W 85+ Certified.

    Peripheral to SATA

    Oh yeah definitely, it's a retarded name I'm aware of that, its rating is actually 80+ Bronze.

    I did, and there is. https://www.pcgarage.ro/surse/sirtec-high-power/element-smart-750w/

    Yeah I get that but those are pretty notorious and I wanna try avoid using them as much as possible.

    Good AM4 Motherboards?

    Well, full sized ATX looks better IMO also given I have a mid tower ATX case and the mATX inside looks rather weird. Also, I'd imagine a full sized ATX has better VRMs, also no, I will never use wi-fi.
  6. Looking for some good motherboards for my future Ryzen build, but I'm having trouble deciding on what I should get, what would be some good X370, B450 and B350 boards? (X470 is outside my budget right now)
  7. Right now both the 1600x and 2600 are on sale, with the 1600x being about $40 cheaper (accounting for the sale), with the 1600x having a wraith max thrown in as a bonus. Now, I would like to get one of these but can't really make up my mind. The 1600x in this situation would be the best bang for the buck, but at the same time I feel like the 2600 would be better because of the improved IMC and lower temps. I don't plan on using Store MI and I don't really want to wait for Zen 2 because it's pretty far off and I kinda NEED an upgrade seeing as one of the RAM dimms got shot and I'm stuck both in single channel, and the 860k is starting to show its limits.

    I don't want to spend more than say $180 on the motherboard. I have my eye out on this MSI B450 Gaming Carbon but not too sure about its quality.

    Ryzen 5 1600x vs 2600

    I'm not an extreme overclocker, any performance will be a vast improvement over this 860k.

    Ryzen 5 1600x vs 2600

    What about recording / streaming? I know the 2600 has no issues whatsoever.

    Ryzen 5 1600x vs 2600

    All ryzen CPUs are unlocked, but yeah I get what you're saying.

    "Multi-Core" graphics cards

    So, now that we are getting closer and closer to the end of the manufacturing process shrink, how will GPUs evolve from here on out? The only solution with current technology would be bigger dies, sure, but that will just drive up the costs because the bigger the dies, the less of them fit a wafer, and implicitly drive the costs higher and higher. Unless we somehow find a way for multiple GPUs to work together like Ryzen CCXes, I'd say the GPU speed will just hit a plateau and stay there until GPUs become powered by quantum processors or some shit.

    "Multi-Core" graphics cards

    Yep, not at all how it works.

    "Multi-Core" graphics cards

    Cost is overall lower, otherwise Ryzen prices would have been through the roof.

    "Multi-Core" graphics cards

    Inflation has nothing to do with the costs I'm talking about. Wafers cost a lot so fitting as many dies onto it as possible greatly increases the yield and implicitly reduces the cost. The RTX 2080 price does not follow any inflation curve either, so still no inflation.

    "Multi-Core" graphics cards

    But they work through crossfire / sli which has its faults and needs to be supported by the game devs, what I mean is something to circumvent that.

    "Multi-Core" graphics cards

    Well Intel got the idea from AMD's CCXes but it's different enough, they're looking to make the cores on 7nm and the rest, less important stuff like memory controller on 14nm or 28nm which I have to say is pretty smart because those two processes are already mature enough for high yields and low prices, and because the cores will be made individually it'll allow for much smaller dies once again reducing the cost.

    "Multi-Core" graphics cards

    295x2 also had two GPUs but they were running in crossfire, I'm talking about something that would have say 4 GPU modules, and each of those would act as a CPU core or something and working together as one big GPU unit made of many "cores", removing the issues of crossfire / sli.
  19. xFluing

    "Multi-Core" graphics cards

    Nah, I'm talking about some kind of tech that's not shit, something that would make the GPU modules work as one singular GPU unit instead of taking turns rendering frames or each one rendering half a frame.

    EQ & Recording

    No matter what I use to record video (OBS, shadowplay, relive) it always seem to be picking up the equalized audio as well, is there a way to capture the raw audio instead?
  21. I have this Athlon x4 860k system on an MSI A68HM-E33 (V1) motherboard. For the longest time, I've run this dual channel 4GB setup with some cheap 2GB modules (running at 1.5V, pretty standard), fast forward to a few months ago when a friend gave me two 4GB modules (total of 8GB), a Corsair XMS3 set (rated at 1.6V), however after putting it in I started having issues booting with it, even with XMP on (which made the RAM run at the rated 1.6V), I then realized I couldn't run dual-channel anymore, not even with the old 4GB kit. The corsair kit would just refuse to POST (and RARELY if it POSTS it only shows 4GB, but board explorer still sees that both slots are populated), while the old 4GB kit would result in the monitor showing artifacts that would go for about 3 rows then cut off in the middle of the next one, so now I'm stuck in a single channel 4GB stick. Is there a way i can fix this? Did I burn off my second DIMM with this ram?
  22. Whoever did this needs to be fired STAT, is his editor an Intel shill or something what happened here, why do the Ryzen 3 results have smaller bars than the Intel ones, even though the numbers are the exact same? This isn't just a fluke, it's in all of the graphs in the video, see for yourself:

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    This old Quadro FX 3450 (equivalent to a 6800 gt, I think, it's the same form factor so I assume it is) I used to game on this until 2015, so yeah you can tell it was a nightmare with games like path of exile being one of my favourites back then, even Half Life 2 would have issues with it. I couldn't use it in a retro system even if I wanted to sadly, because it suddenly started artifacting by itself after 2 years in storage. Full sized pics in spoiler below.

    That's not how graphs work, Linus

    That's the exact problem though BECAUSE linus is more entertaining to watch, ofc he's gonna have a much bigger audience than GN and should ESPECIALLY pay attention to stuff like this to avoid confusion.
