    GekkePietert reacted to Middcore in AMD RADEON RX 480 sits at 86 degrees fahrenheit at idle   
    That's 52 C, which again is very cool for a 480.
    Whatever application you're using to monitor temps, switch to it Celsius. Temperatures in computer hardware are universally discussed in Celsius. You will only confuse yourself and confuse others by using Fahrenheit.

    GekkePietert reacted to tim0901 in Apple has a Power Glove coming to VR   
    It says it in the main post, but I'm saying it again: the vast majority of all patents that are filed never emerge as real products. Just because Apple has filed for this patent does not mean that it is currently - or ever will be - in development, nor does it mean that it's even possible. You do not need to prove a device is possible before you can patent it - hence the US Navy owns a patent on an FTL drive...
    That being said: VR gloves sound sick, I just hope they get a bit less unwieldy than the ones Norm tried out.

    GekkePietert reacted to SlashedM in Apple has a Power Glove coming to VR   
    I feel like title is a little misleading, because its just a patent, and not actually "coming"

    GekkePietert got a reaction from Belac F in Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions   
    I just discovered this really cool opensource project. It is a diy virtual reality headset with steam vr support, which seem to be quite easy to make and costs only about 200$.

    You're fine. If anything, you get some extra performance in some productivity tasks.

    GekkePietert reacted to Void Master in Old graphics card received?   
    There is nothing wrong.
    Read this about the EVGA 2060 KO (also applies to your card)
    All Turing cards (except the super models) were released in 2018, so it's normal.
    There is no need to return your GPU, if you use any professional applications you can get up to 50% performance increase. 
    The only downside is that you can barely overclock it. (not that important tbh, performance increase will be minimal anyways)

    This, I'm pretty sure it is the case being grounded and the guy is carrying a static charge.

    GekkePietert reacted to Skiiwee29 in Is changing core voltage(%) for gpu safe in msi afterburner?   
    Voltage sliders now a days are more placebo than actually effective like it use to be. It wont hurt it and likely wont see much of anything.

    GekkePietert reacted to MaximumSid in Why is 1% & 0.1% frame rate LOWER than min. FPS?   
    Okay so Min FPS is the loweest FPS that happened, but 0.1% low is the average of worst 0.1% of FRAME TIMES that happened between frames, so when converted to FPS (Like Fraps does in this screenshot), the converted 0.1% frame times can be LOWER than the MINIMUM FPS that game ran at?

    GekkePietert reacted to Jurrunio in AMD 5 3600 system suggestions?   
    Nah might as well use MSI's B450 ATX boards. You only lose PCIe 4.0 and have the need to flash bios manually (without compatible CPU) before the CPU gets detected by the motherboard. The power delivery is just as weak

    GekkePietert reacted to Skiiwee29 in Cpu overheating   
    no, its a large plastic cover over the whole base, no way you could have forgotten to remove that as you wouldnt have been able to mount the cooler with it on there.

    GekkePietert reacted to 5x5 in Opinions on new parts   
    The 9600k is not worth the money when the r5 3600 exists. Honestly, I'd say go Zen 2. Unless you have the budget for a 9900K and a massive come per, intel is just not worth it.

    Well, might not want to void the warranty in case I am going to return it and replace it

    GekkePietert reacted to The Benjamins in PCIe 4.0 on ASUS X470 & B450   
    Thats not true, its just 4.0 signaling is more sensitive so the traces and routing need to be laid out in a way that will have less signal degradation. high quality boards may have traces/routing that support for 4.0 even though it was not originally designed for it.

    With the pure power 11 in your system, the Vega 56 is my recommendation.

    GekkePietert reacted to GoldenLag in My first "BigRig" with I9-9900K and a 2080ti.   
    I didnt design them. But i keeo track of how good the powerdelivery is on different boards.
    You dont know anything about anything about mobo designs and powerdelivery designs, nor how much power a minimum 8 pin EPS connector can deliver do you...

    GekkePietert reacted to Wauthar in Ryzen 3700x 400 dollars - Price over time question   
    I don't know where you're looking, but the Pricewatch on Tweakers.net states the 3700x price at €359 - €399.
    Always compare stores before jumping the gun and buying without informing yourself.

    GekkePietert reacted to Fasauceome in Ryzen and RTX Build Less than 1000$ or a bit of 1000$   
    Are those little snippets on the end of each part going to be in the listing for your sale? I don't think you need to specify your previous graphics card, that a K SKU CPU is allowed to overclock, or that a Corsair 750M is somehow a "gaming" PSU.
    As for parts list, I interpreted your budget as USD so here you go:

    Similar to the $100,000 build, would be a really cool video to see a dual system setup with two 6 core gaming rigs off of one CPU.  If someone was upgrading a new system anyways, how getting a 3900x with maybe like an x470 Taichi or something similar with Dual 8x GPU capability might allow to run two systems off of one machine with the old GPU and any new GPU they might buy.  I wanted to do a  little write-up on this but even the new hardware I'm getting won't have Dual 8x support and getting an x570 board with dual 8x GPU support would be pretty costly.  That, and I'm backordered for as long as B&H says that I am.
    I'm interested in seeing how having a really good 12 core machine that can also be split up into a double 6 core setup for friends to come over or for a S/O might justify having a 12 core machine for the versatility and what benefits or drawbacks might occur vs just building 2 machines.  Like having a dual monitor setup that can turn into two single monitors, using less space, and being able to just turn it into one really badass machine, maybe if it had an accessible design inside to just pop say an NVLINK bridge if you did happen to have two of the same cards.  Also, what the best config would be, maybe running off of each chiplet per machine or crossing them over. Thoughts?
