    tarfeef101 got a reaction from Fasauceome in Cases With Mechanism to Secure GPUs   
    I've seen some prebuilts from the likes of dell that also use custom GPU designs that allow it to be screwed into the case from the opposite edge of the PCB as the I/O plate, basically locking it into place. that was what i was hoping for, maybe something that would allow me to take a screw out of the backplate of my GPU and put a plate in the middle of it, and screw that into the case to brace it, or something like that. Admittedly a longshot, but figured I'd try.

    Also i don't think I could, in good conscience, ship something with blue plastic anything in 2020. Even if my friend said he didn't care how it looks, I still do dammit.

    tarfeef101 reacted to RadiatingLight in how to get geforce rtx 3070   
    Easy way: Wait until 2021
    Hard way: lurk on sites like Bestbuy, Newegg, etc., try to figure out their restock times, try to snag one if you can
    Expensive way: buy from scalpers on Ebay
    Alternative (maybe): Buy an RX6800 when it releases, but it will also likely be out of stock everywhere.

    Well too late for the event this year, only just got my setup set up at my new apt. But I'll definitely be folding more now, I have electric heating, and I already pushed wooden desks right against the baseboards so this is my only choice to heat up the apartment  

    Good luck to everyone participating in the event!

    tarfeef101 got a reaction from Parideboy in expereince with "off-brand" parts?   
    W/ respect to RAM, they're basically fine. Only a few manufacturers of the actual DRAM chips, and that makes it pretty hard to mess them up. I'd avoid them for super high speed stuff like DDR4 4266+ since at that point, having your motherboard support your sticks on the QVL is pretty helpful, and bigger brands are more likely to end up on those. 

    More broadly, yeah, it totally depends. PSUs, I'd typically avoid. Watercooling parts, most of mine are from AliExpress. It really does depend. I gave the RAM answer based on the brands you gave.

    Yeah that's normal if you're not under a heavy multi-core load. Idle and single core goes pretty high relative to all core by default, which is fine. Don't be worried about it

    This is pretty normal for ryzen cpus as they're are more sensitive to the amount amps vs volts. If I'm wrong correct me but I remember buildzoid mentioning this

    tarfeef101 got a reaction from mrdoubtfull in RAM Timing   
    Well, idk why you're not trying to run at 3200. That'll help way more than better timings at 2400. 
     
    A rough guideline is that your timings are "good" if the primary CAS latency results in the following inequality being true:
     
    Speed (MHz) / CAS > 225
     
    To be clear, if it's worse than that, that doesn't make it BAD, it just not impressive or anything. Some of the best value kits out there are 3200 CL16 or 3600 cl 18. Those would result in values of 200 in that equation. Both are totally fine, just not "good". If you're even lower than 200, I'd consider that to be fairly loose (bad) timings since you can spend not a lot to get to at least 200, and even 225 isn't much of a price increase. 
     
     
    In your case, though, since you're still under 3600 MHz (so your infinity fabric has room to get faster), and you are using an APU (which benefit a lot from faster ram speeds), I'd recommend prioritizing speed over all else.

    tarfeef101 got a reaction from BTGbullseye in RAM Timing   
    That depends entirely on the RAM speed, capacity, number of DIMMs, motherboard/CPU, etc. We need more information.

    tarfeef101 got a reaction from tryton-vanmeer in what is your favorite linux distro ?   
    You're missing the point. If your application is lightweight, alpine will allow you to drastically reduce your image size, which is usually something people try to do. One typically reserves heavier distros like debian for when they're the "last resort" due to an incompatibility like I mentioned with musl c.

    tarfeef101 reacted to LIGISTX in Intel core i7 10700k overclock   
    I wouldn't use a mobo OC option, they are always pretty garbage since they are just throwing way more votls at your CPU than it needs. If you want to OC, take the time to read up, watch videos, read up some more, and then try it yourself. As long as you don't throw lots of volts at it you can't really hurt it.
     
    Just read A LOT, ask some questions, and go about it slowly. What GPU and resolution are your monitor? You likely will see very, very little gains anyways. Also, a all core turbo of 4.8 is not really a benefit for a 10700k unless that retains the stock turbo operation as well. If your resolution is higher than something like 3440x1440p, a few extra MHz will make no appreciable difference anyways.

    tarfeef101 got a reaction from Androidcow1234 in Does anyone know of a 1080p Gaming Monitor With Four Inputs?   
    To add my example, I use this: https://www.amazon.ca/PW-SH0401B-Switch-Support-Compatible-Windows/dp/B082FVBTGD
     
    I haven't tested freesync, potential input latency (though anecdotally I've not noticed any), etc. But it works for my use case. 
     
    I have also used HDMI switches back in the day (like 10+ years) when VRR wasn't a thing, and had great success even in competitive shooters, so latency wasn't a problem. But the complexity of the HDMI protocol was far lower, that was when the Xbox 360 was new. I'm sure there are equivalent new products though.

    tarfeef101 reacted to Crunchy Dragon in am i being optimistic?   
    It's a pretty noticeable difference, although I'd imagine you'll notice the difference in refresh rate more than resolution.
