Oh wow, nice! That's actually quite decent, a lot better than I was expecting. I should stop comparing my VII to this new stuff, it's obviously not the same kettle of fish.

That was GPU draw for sure. At 2100mhz core / 1200mhz HBM, I can make my Radeon VII *alone* suck nearly 400W from the wall depending on load (I saw a peak of 384W).

I bought this one too, despite being an Asus fanboy for decades now. So far, I don't regret my decision yet. The RGBs are a bit dim on this one though, I can barely see the LEDs glowing under the...

Alphacool rads perform better than EKs, by a decent margin in some cases. Not sure if it's due to the low FPI, but I'd take the Alphacool without question. Their rads tend to be 'dirtier' and need...

I'm still eyeballing the 2TB Intel NVME. It's slow, but for $260CDN, you can't beat the price.

I think the "gaming gap" between Intel and AMD is *highly* overblown. Just because one bar on a graph is bigger, doesn't mean gameplay is crap on Ryzen. Most of the time, you're talking small...

Funny there's no Intel in that list. For the NVME folk, you can get an Intel 2TB NVME for $260CDN, which is pretty cheap. Not sure why everyone only focuses on 1TB Samsung all the time when there...

AMD GPUs need water like humans do. You can unlock some serious potential, especially with those junk blowers.

Sure wish I read German, but thanks for the thought, LOL! :D I thought you mean someone was hitting 2200 on the VII core, not the 5700/XT. I translated the page and it sure is interesting, if it...

Don't tempt me. :D I am NOT liking this Gigabyte board. But I'm trying to reserve judgement, since this is a new platform, learning curve for OCing, etc. It seems like that first BIOS update made...

I doubt anyone's hitting 2200mhz on core, but I'd like more info on this unlock thingy so I could prove that myself. :D

I think my VII is already faster than a 1080TI at 2100mhz, significantly...

3900x / Gigabyte Aorus Master is finally alive. Took awhile, but at least it's up with the latest BIOS. Let the hammering begin! FYI, that Corsair PCIE SSD is pretty warm, you can feel the heat...

I just flashed the BIOS to the latest and greatest, and it seems to have quieted down some. I'm going to hammer it best I can and see what that fan does. Not sure if I can turn it off or not.

Back in the x79 days, if you had the right board, you had PCIE 3.0 on every socket 2011 CPU. I had it on my 3820k. But you needed a high end board (mine was the Asus Rampage IV Gene). That board...

If there were no difference, why would they release two 8 core chips then? I suspect there will be a decent difference, and quite a bit more overclocking headroom on the more expensive part. ...
