Even if it was the top card, it still could be a really good thing. If it was to get close to the 3080 and then undercut it on price to force some price cuts from Nvidia, everyone wins.

Pretty much any off the shelf router can act as a WiFi hotspot. Many of the higher end ones like the Tp-Link Archer C7 or Asus RT-AC66U I'm using have a special WiFi Hotspot mode which does all the...

DIY Router Build & Network Setup

This year I got it into my head to DIY a router, and it's been quite fun to put together and configure. The main advantage of DIY'ing a router is that the average AMD/Intel CPU is orders of magnitude...

Lots swear by the WD Reds. I've had good experience with them. I've never tried the Seagate Ironwolfs.

Having your own server or NAS is a slippery slope - let me tell you. ^_^

For anyone wondering, it's an X470 motherboard with IPMI - which allows me to access the BIOS remotely over the network. All server boards worth their salt have this feature.

AMD is really hitting Intel hard in the mid range. There really isn't much point to getting an i5 anymore with the R5 3600 around, this will just add that.

I was getting some BSODs until I disabled Hardware Acceleration in Firefox & Steam. Hopefully this means that's solved now.

Other than that though my 5700 XT has been great so far. It's a great...

With the efficiency of the unit, there's about 100 - 150W of room to the max output the PSU is rated for based on my numbers above. So there's even room for some overclocks, probably not balls to the...

I was in school when the original series came out. Probably one of my favorite platformers of all time.

Playing this I'm having a serious case of nostalgia, even down to the soundtrack. :D

New Ryzen 3000 Build for 2019

Thought I'd share - it's my new build for 2019. It would be my 1st totally new system in a good 3 years now. It marks my 1st all AMD system since 2013 too when I had an FX-8350 & Radeon 7950.

AMD 3700X & RX 5700 XT on a 450W PSU

TL;DR - A 450W PSU is plenty for a 3700X & RX 5700 XT.

My desktop has a 3700X & a Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse which I'm running off a 450W SFX Corsair PSU. Sapphire actually has a 600W PSU requirement...

I've seen my 3700X hit 4375MHz & 4392MHz after prolonged period of gaming, but only on 1 or 2 cores. My 6700k when left long enough used to always hit 4.2GHz on all cores. I guess people have gotten...

My Home Media Server/NAS

This is my Home Server. It's sort of inspired by Tom's videos on his home server. It runs Plex, Sonarr, Radarr and acts as a Torrentslave, NAS & Backup machine for me.

They offer a 3 year warranty on these cards. That means they have to guarantee the worst case scenario for 3 years otherwise they can't be confident that they won't be...
