    Not necessarily. On ebay, he probably doesn't even have the items. He just set up an account to scam people.

    AMD getting close to releasing 5000 series with Vega IGP

    I was definitely expecting more out of Xe graphics and was looking at buying one just for the IGP. I guess I can wait to see what AMD comes up with since I have lots of AM4 motherboards.

    AMD5950X, Dark Hero, and 32GB GSkill Trident Z RGB / Neo / Royal - DDR4 3600-4000mhz choices ; B-Die really worth the increased price?

    I guess my point is that there is always a question of spending more money and getting more performance. I just think that spending several hundred dollars more for RAM that tightens to slightly tighter timings/speeds is probably the worst bang for the buck out there. I don't know that the...

    I mean at least with the motherboard there are aesthetic differences and usually differences with the build quality. I actually downgraded from the original CH8 because I didn't feel like I was using all the features for the money.

    Exposing my ignorance: I don't know what's going on with my RAM. (Renamed)

    I'm sure you could take up to at least 16 GB sticks and probably 32 GB. The memory support page is probably lacking at this point because it's an older board and they don't go back and retest a lot. At 1080p a 5800x would definitely help the frame rates in just about any game. I don't...

    I would definitely give 3200Mhz at at least 1.35V a try before you stop testing along with the slight bump in SOC voltage. 1.35V is pretty much the defacto "stock" voltage for any DDR4 memory above 2400Mhz. Like I said before, it might just be a memory controller issue. It's not uncommon for...

    So it doesn't work if you run the profile 1 OC?

    My experience has been that a 3090 mines at double the rate of a 3070 at slightly more than twice the power. The 3090 also has additional issues with overheating memory, etc. All things considered, I'd probably want 2x3070's instead as they are easier to maintain and don't require re-padding...

    It really depends on the quality of the IMC. I had a 2700x which worked fine beyond 3200Mhz. I had a 2600 that wouldn't do more than 2933Mhz. They were definitely more friendly than OG Zen, but not anywhere near as friendly as Zen 2 and Zen 3.

    AMD or Nvidia control panel

    I don't know that every setting is application controlled by default based on a perusal of the Nvidia Control Panel. I would think you could probably get by without it, but I can't say that I've ever had an issue with it.

    I would update to the latest chipset drivers from AMD. Then run that EC FW Update Tool (B19.0517.1 or later version) from the Utilities Then flash F31 Then flash F40 Then the latest F61a

    That is true, although, usually what they were talking about was the much less common Athlon A series and X4 series CPUs. A mainstream CPU like the 2700x will be fine.

    I agree. I've spiked up to $95/day based on the spot shares accepted at that moment. Over the past two months, I've been at a steady $36-40 a day. It ends up right around $250 a week. I stepped up one of my 3070s to a 3090, so that should increase slightly once I get it up and running I...
