  1. I recently took some photos and wrote some stuff which actually turned into a fairly interesting piece. Or shall I say... A.S.S. piece? 786423780532027433.png?v=1

    You can check it out here, it's a quick read: https://anothersupersite.com/breaking-out-of-the-monotony-gallery/


    And yes, I am, in fact, still alive. Though if I'm being honest, I'd be lying if I said that I missed the forum a whole lot. 799080953913409566.gif?v=1

      Gorgeous shots and gallery as always! 

    2. Evolution.


      looking good bruv

      looooooooove this gallery of photos! 🥰

      Mainly 'cos they're genuinely inspiring. Like, the adrenaline-pumping, I-want-to-get-out-and-hike-right-now kinda inspiration.

      And I find them beyond visually-appealing. The environment is captured so well, there's the vivid illusion of sounds, smells, and textures.


      Recently got into hiking and pieces like these are helping me maintain that positive mentality and high morale. 748522851337764904.gif?v=1

  2. I think you're looking a little too far into it. The 5800X has its 8 cores packed much more close together than the 5900X's 12 cores, making its thermal density higher and thus making the heat transfer between the CPU and the CPU cooler less efficient - so basically, your first hypothesis. I doubt there's much in the way of 'binning' being done with these chips, both because they're just regular, mainstream parts, and because it wouldn't really be practical considering the ongoing semiconductor shortage.
  3. No. If you can afford a 5950X, then surely you can afford at least a half-decent motherboard.
  4. It's because, with most memory kits, they won't always be using one particular die. 3200 CL16 kits are the clearest example of this, since pretty much any die under the sun will run those speeds, so if you were to buy several 3200 CL16 Vengeance LPX kits for instance, even right now you'd probably see various different ICs used in them (possibly including reject Samsung B-die even).
  5. Did you just press the CPU block slightly onto the CPU, or is that after you properly mounted and screwed it into place? The thermal paste should spread all across the IHS.
  6. Yes, you can use a Ryzen 3600 with that board, provided you're running a BIOS revision that supports Ryzen 3000. Looking at Asrock's website, it looks like the earliest BIOS version that'll support a 3600 is 5.90, here: https://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/A320M-HDV/index.asp#BIOS If you're already running 5.90 or a newer BIOS version, then you can just throw a 3600 right in. Otherwise, you will need to update it first.
  7. You could throw more cooling onto the card, but that isn't going to change the fact that your ambient temps are super high. I would primarily focus on just minimising the amount of heat the GPU itself is putting out, by way of undervolting. Here's a quick guide that should make things pretty simple: If, for some reason, you're opposed to the idea of undervolting (as you kind of seem to be going by how you mentioned it in the original post, and the fact that you're glossing over other people suggesting it..?), then I would just leave it as is. Sure, 88C is
  8. No. The 32GB kit is certainly the better deal here.
  9. That obviously depends on the software you're using, though I reckon cropping the larger image to the exact size of the smaller one should do the trick.
  10. Did you shoot one photo through the viewfinder, and the other using live view? Go into your camera's settings and make sure the aspect ratio is set to 3:2 (I'm guessing it's set to 16:9 right now).

  12. Note: It's important to note that I wouldn't really consider this as being a review, per se. I'm not well enough versed when it comes to the world of audio to be able to provide a detailed analysis of things like frequency response, imaging, etc. and to directly compare them to other products on the market. This is more about my impressions and what I think of these headphones just as a regular user, so if you're okay with that, let's proceed. The HE400se is HIFIMAN's latest addition to their planar magnetic headphone lineup, and also their most affordable, coming in at $149. I man
  13. 450W is plenty for your i5 and 1660Ti, it's just that the CV450 is a very mediocre PSU. Ideally I'd get something a little higher quality, like Corsair's CX and CX-F models. In the meantime however, your PSU should be able to power your components without problems, if I had to guess. If something was to go wrong however, the CV450 should have all the necessary protections in place to prevent any damage from occurring to your components.
  14. FC660C owner here - there's a very slight "click" sound on the down arrow key on my board, if I press it specifically in the top right. It's not quite as high-pitched as what you're experiencing, however. Other than that, none of the keys exhibit this "clicking" sound.
