  1. After testing with Ryzen Master and HWiNFO64, it was indeed a reporting error. Kinda disappointing, but it's not like I've lost anything, so it's fine.
  2. For the past little while, HWMonitor has been reporting insane boost clocks while gaming for my Ryzen 7 2700. Today was the highest I've seen so far at 5.51GHz. I have the CPU overclocked to 4.0Ghz @ 1.35V, and I'm using the stock Prism cooler and an Asrock x370 Killer SLI/ac mobo with 16gb GSkill Trident Z 3200mhz and an EVGA 600W 80+ PSU. Is this a reporting error, and if so what caused it? Or should I get an AIO and see how far this thing will OC? I couldn't get it stable @4.1 without raising the voltage, so I left it at 4.0GHz, but with a better cooler I could probably bring the voltage up a good bit. Though I am a little worried about degradation at that point. How much voltage can these chips take?
  3. I've been getting weird boost clocks during gaming from my R7 2700 as recorded by HWMonitor. Here's the highest I've seen yet. I have it overclocked to 4GHz @ 1.35V and with the stock Prism cooler. Should I get an AIO and see how far this thing will go?


  4. Have you tried rebooting with your original drive? I had to reclone my OS a couple times and with various software before my laptop would accept an ssd. But I've got a Lenovo, so maybe not applicable.
  5. Hi. I'm just wondering how people feel about upgrading from last-gen high-end components. Say, for example, you own a GTX 980 or a 980 ti. If you're upgrading to a current card, are you going to go for something that's in the same place in the current lineup (2080 or 2080ti, here shortly 3080) or would you go for something that is still a significant upgrade but is more mid-tier (2060, 2070, etc.)? Does it feel bad to go from high-end to mid-tier or lower, even if it is a big upgrade? Personally, I don't like to lose my place in the product stack, but when it comes down to it, I'm probably going to go for the best deal. In my case, I have a Ryzen 7 2700 that I'm planning to upgrade after the new chips launch. I'll probably end up getting a 3700x or 3800x on sale or used, because I have an x370 motherboard that I'd like to get the most out of. I would prefer to get a 4000 series chip, but if I have to get a mobo as well then I probably wouldn't have room for a 4700x in my budget, and though the 4600 will likely be a lot faster than my current chip, dropping down a notch in the product stack (and losing threads) just feels wrong to me. Why do I even want to upgrade? Well, I have a 200hz 2560 x 1080p monitor, and a faster cpu would help a lot I think in hitting those higher frames. My gpu is an RTX 2070, and I think it can keep up for the next couple years. I've pretty much made up my mind about what I'm doing, at least until I see what the next cpu launch does to 3000 series prices, but I'm just curious about how people feel about this issue.
