  1. Probably should have had the owner unlock the phone..
  2. Usually, I see a part I want and go with it. Then build around it. For example, I wanted 5900x and 6800xt. I didn't get a 5900x since I got my parts in November. I was able to get the 6800xt and 5800x when the 6900xt dropped. Then at first, I wanted to see how small of a case I could fit it in. I found the limits of that and then went for high airflow high cooling.
  3. Here's how I feel at the end of the day at work.


  4. DDR is double data rate. It sends data 2 times per MHZ. 1400x2=2800. When you sent XMP to 3000 it should say 1500 mhz yeah?
  5. Meshify Compact is the same price. Also has room for a 360mm radiator in the front, 240 in the top, 120mm in the rear and 120mm in the bottom. As opposed to a 280mm and 120. Exact same price. Much better cooling.
  6. Cyber Monday is Black Friday. Just on Monday instead of Friday. Or it used to be. Used to be, Thanksgiving Thursday, Black Friday, weekend, Cyber Monday. Now it's all lumped into a sale that is a week long or so and not as big of a sale as people think it is.
  7. DW, AMD did really well with Zen 3 and people are still kind of underestimating it for workstation tasks.
  8. The 6+2 PCIE cables are the 8 pin PCIE cables.
  9. 5800x out performs 3900x in AE and is marginally slower in Blender. https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/AMD-Ryzen-5000-Series-CPU-Review-Roundup-1962/#AdobeAfterEffects Not necessarily, see above.
  10. I'll preface this. I haven't done hardly any research into this. I wonder if it's motherboard side issues and not CPU side. I've got a MSI and haven't had any drop out issues. I built my AMD rig on Christmas last year and haven't had any issues with it that I didn't cause. No, you're not. I haven't even had any driver issues with my 6800xt yet.
  11. You should also disconnect the PSU from the wall, turn the power switch on and hold the power switch that turns the motherboard on for a minute or two to discharge the caps for BIOS. Just removing the battery won't discharge them.
  12. Why not buy off your "local" Amazon site? Is it not available?
  13. Puget Systems do really good write ups. They're workstation based though. GamersNexus is great at gaming benchmarks, and then there's these guys. https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/11th-Gen-Intel-Core-CPU-Review-Roundup-2106/
