    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from Krodmandoon in Motherboard Recommendation for 5950x   
    Those are all great boards, I think it doesn't matter much as they're all overkill in terms of VRM design and overclocking even for a 5950X, so the only things that differ are features. Choose the cheapest one that suits your needs feature-wise and you're good.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from Omar.B in Motherboard Recommendation for 5950x   
    Both are similar. The Aorus Master seems to be a bit more high-end board in the lineup, but the Tomahawk Wifi is a good choice as well. Though both seem fairly entry-level considering you intend to put a 5950X in there.

    I use an MSI Prestige X570 Creation and it would fit everything you'd probably want. Have a look at the rear I/O:

    I suggest you check it out.
     
     
    Both are great, out of those two I'd probably get the Aorus Master one.

    No, it's not worth it. While the 5800X is a better CPU, there's no reason to upgrade to it if you already have a 10700K.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from frozensun in how to lower temp on RTX 2080 S?   
    Power limit basically limits your max boost clocks on modern GPUs, so essentially it doesn't boost as high due to limiting maximum power draw of the card - this probably should lower the temps, but also performance.

    Temp limit means that the card will target 70C for instance and it will downclock itself to maintain that temperature threshold. Both work similarly in practice, but the settings themselves affect different aspects of the card. There should be no artifacting no matter how you set those. You can set temp limit first and go from there, leave the power limit as it is preferably.

    So is cold, if it's unreasonable. Both are acceptable as long as they're running within spec - those parts are engineered to sustain such temperatures. For instance AMD states that their latest 5000 series can run at 90C, even up to 95C on the 5600X which is within spec and by design to allow for higher performance.
    That's simply not true, no component on the GPU has its temperature threshold below 80C. You need to understand this is all by design.

    On my version of Afterburner Temp. Limit is in degrees Celsius - what % are you talking about?

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from Windows7ge in Unable to Create a partition or format drive (pendrive) !   
    It just uses a lower-level tool called diskpart. This works when the drive freezes in disk management, had this happen a couple of times. I used diskpart via elevated command prompt and it always worked - I suggest doing that first.

    Airflow within case seems to me to be less important than overall case airflow. Just get that fresh air in and out of the case as efficiently as possible. Reported temp is usually the core so cooling the backplate is unlikely to do much.
     
    If your goal is to reduce temps, then the obvious solution is to set a temperature limit. Anything else can and will vary with ambient temperatures.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from Robioto in Resizable BAR (Smart Access Memory) Now Available on Nvidia RTX 3000 Series GPUs   
    Probably yes, but to be 100% sure I'd recommend you verify it using this short instruction:
    "Go into device manager (run > devmgmt.msc), find your GPU under display adapters > Resources > Large Memory Range (something close to this effect) should be present. If it is, resize bar is operational."

    In my case it was already disabled so no change was needed. 
     
    Since I'm on Comet Lake, I'm running 3.0 with nv. Still debating getting a Rocket Lake once I sort some other things out.

    MSI is actually one of the best GPU manufacturers atm, and the Gaming X variants are superb so I'm not sure what you meant here.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from dizmo in OnePlus Partnering with Hasselblad For Upcoming Phone Release   
    I see, well it may have had a good camera back in the day, but it's not even comparable to what modern smartphones are capable of, and honestly - you'd be surprised

    I started using phone cameras more and more the better they got, to the point where I use them daily - from quick scanning documents, to taking pictures of things I need to remember quickly, hell I even use the selfie one as a mirror sometimes. Capturing awesome moments became definitely more rare since the whole pandemic thing started, but it was definitely up there too. From macro shots to pictures with huge levels of magnifications to be able to see things that even the human eye is not capable of seeing, it's just a much better experience than it used to be a few years ago.
    I get that some people may not care about this, but a good camera is a good selling point to many. And you know what they say - the best camera is the one that you always have with you.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from Doobeedoo in AMD RX 6700 and RX 6600XT leaks + RX 66700XT Pre-order spotted   
    I'm personally curious as to what kind of performance can we expect from those mid-range parts.

    A 6700 XT is significantly more cut down than the 6800, it actually features identical core config to the older 5700 XT (40CUs, 64 ROPs, 160 TMUs and 2560 shading units) but with more memory, next-gen cores and the redesigned cache system that makes RDNA 2 competitive.

    It's a lot "smaller" than its older siblings though, the 6800 has 60CUs, the 6800 XT has 72CUs and the 6900 XT is essentially double everything that the 6700 XT has inside with 80CUs - so I'm very curious as to how RDNA 2 does in a head-to-head comparison with the original RDNA on the 5700 XT, considering that the 7nm node stayed the same.

    Honestly, no LG phone right now has a good camera 😛 The best would be LG Wing, and it's still far behind other companies. Let alone a V10.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from NinJake in OnePlus Partnering with Hasselblad For Upcoming Phone Release   
    Well, that changes a little when you actually have a good camera on a phone. It's actually usable and useful when it's good.
     
    I had a OnePlus 7 Pro for 1.5 year, the motorized cam was great for me because I don't use the front camera. It was definitely a downgrade going to an S21 Ultra in that regard and I think it was quite a good idea to go for the pop-up camera in the first place for OnePlus, sad they ditched it for the IP68 rating.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from Downkey in Zen 3 mobile reviews?   
    I see, there's no reviews of that laptop in that particular spec, but you don't really need that, here's a review of this laptop with the previous-gen Ryzen 4000 series chip:
    https://www.notebookcheck.net/HP-Omen-15-laptop-Review-Strong-AMD-processor-makes-Intel-tremble.512679.0.html

    You can check the individual performance of the 5600H and the mobile 3060, and in the review I linked above the build of the laptop is exactly the same this generation. All you may want to check out is the TDP and clock speeds of the 3060 that's in there. Besides that it should perform as in that review thermally and acoustically.

    Well, you'll probably be able to order one for the MSRP at launch day. When you're going to actually receive it is a completely different story.

    I'm still waiting on an ASUS TUF 3080 that I ordered exactly for MSRP about 20 minutes after they went on sale. 4 months have passed already 😛

    Agreed, if Zen 3 was on a new process node then I guess it would be possible, but it's a node that AMD knows quite well already so it seems unlikely to be a wide scale issue

    P.S. I hid your accidental post 😛
