    How often do you replace power supply?

    Nope I run a sealed positive air pressure system with ultra fine mesh filters. Visually checked my psu and the internals still look shiny and new 9 years later. Plus look up the component data sheets for the capacitors, mosfets, etc. and you will see that their lifespan is inversely correlated...

    4c/8t 6700k (stock) vs 6c/12t 3960x (4.7ghz oc) for my son in laws first PC. Need advise

    GPU would be a gtx 960 so nothing powerful but in the future I will give him my 1080 once I upgrade when prices are sane.

    4c/8t 6700k (stock) vs 6c/12t 3960x (4.7ghz oc) for my son in laws first PC. Need advise

    Hi all, so my brother’s wife’s son is looking to build his first PC and they don’t have the funds to pay for it. I offered to use my old components just sitting in my closet. My question is which cpu would be better for his computer for modern games. A 4c/8t 6700k that will remain stock as it is...

    SAM/resize-BAR and gddr6x has nothing to do with having enough vram to store all the data needed to render frames without having to wait for main memory or page-file. If you had said today’s card have better delta compression then yes that helps, but no, what you said has nothing to do with...

    Even 12GB is low in today’s world. I mean it’s only 1 more GB than the 1080 Ti from 2016….if I were in the market today I wouldn’t get anything less than 16GB which means 6900xt or 3090. Anything else is mid tier class in 2 years or less

    Use the Radeon anti-lag feature. That should help the frame time issue. Radeon anti-lag Adrenaline software description: “Dynamically adjusts frame timing to reduce the lag between user inputs and visual responses.”

    Looking for feedback: 6900xt vs 3080

    Oh sorry about that, I’m on a business trip so I’m away from my desktop and its been forever since I’ve been in the adrenaline settings. If I remember correctly it’s called “Radeon anti-lag” it basically forces the gpu to put out as many frames as possible while keeping output at the monitors...

    You do realize that there is a setting in the adrenaline drivers that fixes this. I have a 6900xt and I’ve never experienced what you are saying, mechwarrior online, Starcraft 2, war thunder, rising storm 2, etc all play flawlessly

    Which monitor manufacture is good?

    Samsung and LG both make their own panels so they are a good company to start with. It’s not always the case (Samsung and lg do make affordable monitors), but most of the time Samsung and lg will keep the better panels in a production lot and sell the lesser production lot panels to more...

    AMD working their driver magic!

    I get what you are saying but give AMD time. They are just now becoming a successful company with zen. For 6 years straight they have invested all their R&D money in Zen while riding out bulldozer as a last ditch effort to become relevant again so the Radeon department has been lacking in...

    AMD working their driver magic!

    So when I first got my 6900xt back in February I couldn’t get above 10500 graphics score in timespy extreme with my max OC and pushing power target all the way to 450 watts but now in November I revisited 3dmark and got 10500 on stock settings and 11200 with max OC but only using 289 watts. I...

    What Ryzen CPUs can this cool sufficiently?

    Basically what kirbyrj is saying is that your cooler might be able to cool a 5900x or 5950x sufficiently in a cpu only load in a case with proper airflow while the video card is idling, however if your video card is stressing and is dumping hot air into your case then the ability of your cpu...
