    no real reasons to not, unless you need the pcie lanes of an HEDT platform, and cost.

    There's an opinion that problems we see with Ampere (not Turing) aren't because of too sensitive OCP in fact but due to PSU tripping it's UVP after all capacitors get emptied by high-transients and voltage drops, or perhaps a mix of both.

    you can try following this:https://sennheiserusa.happyfox.com/kb/article/219-what-do-i-do-when-there-is-wireless-signal-or-wifi-interference/
    2.4ghz is all there is afaik

    you can always try OCing and tightening timings. With zen 3, 4000mhz dram is possible, and depending on the ICs you can easily get a CL of 16-18 at 4k.

    Firewrath9 got a reaction from ShrimpBrime in [WIP] I Don't Recommend The Asus Prime Z370-P   
    The EVGA Z370 FTW is a much better option, I think its available for 120$, Has FINNED heatsinks for VRMs, 11 power phases which is 1 more than the ASUS Maximus X Apex (a 500$ board) and 6 sata and 6 PWM fan headers.
    Even the Micro-ATX mobo has 11 power phases.
     
    I’m not a big fan of ASUS products.

    you'll need a proper software implementation and you need to really accurately measure the distance between sensors. And even if you do that its still not very good since the l16 is frankly shit for $2000.

    Firewrath9 got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in (Update: F2 announcement) Beating yourself at price - Pocophone X2 + F2 found   
    Yeah, Xiaomi's Mi9T Pro is ~350$, has a Snapdragon 855, 1080p OLED screen, 128GB storage, 6GB Ram.
    The F1 had a launch price of 300$, and if the X2/F2 launches around that price, without an OLED screen, it will get cannibilized by the Mi9T Pro.
    However if it comes with OLED, it might be a viable alternative to the Mi9T non-pro.

    EKWB slim rads
    Anyways, OP: Hardwarelabs makes the best slim rads, their GTS series (30mm thick) outperforms many 45mm class radiators at low-mid RPM. EK's slim radiators are pitiful

    Firewrath9 got a reaction from Mateyyy in What's the best liquid cooler for Threadripper 3990x?   
    heh, maybe at stock. Once you turn up voltage and freq, you start drawing some serious power. a 3970X draws around 7W per core, while a 3990X draws around 4W. To get a 3990X to 3970X frequencies, thats over 500W of heat output. In addition, Zen 2 freq scales inversely with temperature, so lower temps = faster clocks
    Thats how someone had to do to overclock their 3990X.

I'd advise against a cheap case and PSU, as a quality case and PSU will stay with you across many upgrades. Ditto with SSDs under 1TB, with such low SSD prices, no point in buying low capacity or spinning rust (unless you need like 4TB+ of storage). In addition, Crucial E-die overclocks very well, so I'd get some crucial ram as opposed to some random ram that you don't know who manufactured the ICs.

    I understand the joke, but a comment like that may confuse newbies, who may take it seriously. Considering viruses are a nasty thing and all, I'd say it's better just not to joke like that when talking to them.
