    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from flibberdipper in Gigabyte commits massive PR oopsie in China   
    It has nothing to do with that. Chinese Communist Party is extremely sensitive to matters regarding PR of any kind but especially Taiwan, as officially they recognize that Taiwan is China, so Gigabyte even making that distinction on their Chinese website was bold to say the least.

    The "apology" is clearly made so the party officials don't take reprisal for that, as they could easily temporarily or even permanently forbid sales of Gigabyte products.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from rul3s in Upgraded from 3800x to 5800x, temps reaching 90º with same config   
    Those figures only apply if your CPU runs fully stock, without PBO enabled and adheres to the TDP number. Mine doesn't, because I've removed those limits so higher temps are indeed expected 😉

    Also, different workloads use different instruction sets and cinebench is one in particular that heats those CPUs up, for instance in AIDA64 CPU stress test it doesn't get nearly as hot and rarely hits 80C for me.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from FakeKGB in RAM voltage question, Ryzen 7 5800X   
    It's not a big deal at all. 1.45V is above stock spec, but it's well within margins of safety for DDR4 RAM. Higher-end RAM runs at higher voltages due to higher frequencies or better timings like in this case. This message is just a note, which honestly is quite pointless.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from Herkul in Is MSI MPG B550 Gaming Carbon WiFi a good motherboard for 5900x?   
    They're similar, but the B550 Gaming E is a better choice IMO. They're both very similar boards, but the ASUS one has POST Code screen for easy troubleshooting which can be very useful. It has a better PCIE slot layout too.

    I also prefer ASUS BIOS to MSI.

    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.
  13. Agree
    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.

    Morgan MLGman got a reaction from frozensun in how to lower temp on RTX 2080 S?   
    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.

    Morgan MLGman reacted to porina in how to lower temp on RTX 2080 S?   
    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."

    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.
