    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...

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

    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...

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

    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...

    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...

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

    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.

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

    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

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

    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...

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

    I tend to agree. I have a hard time spending $350 for 32GB of Cas 14 3800Mhz memory when I got a 32GB kit of Cas 16 3600Mhz for $110 from Amazon. I'll never see $240 worth of difference.

    In fairness he is probably also running an early bios. Might help with memory stability.

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

    Update the bios for your motherboard to the most recent one available. Additionally, you could try setting the XMP and then manually downclocking the memory to 2933Mhz from 3200. That should work.

    DOCP is an Asus thing isn't it? I think Gigabyte just has regular XMP in the settings.

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

    2133 is DDR (double data rate) of 1066 so your RAM is running at 2133 which isn't surprising as it is the "stock" speed of a lot of DDR4 modules. Open your computer case and look at the modules to see what they should be running at. There are usually stickers on them. Boot into the bios and...

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    That's the idea. But it really depends on your individual setup and usage. Play around with the curve under your normal load and see if you can get a happy medium between fan speed and temps.

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    I'd probably adjust the curve slightly so it doesn't cycle. Should be able to do it in the EVGA Precision X1 app.

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    The "curve" part is you can adjust the fan speed to vary based on the temperature of your GPU. Sounds like in your description above, the fan ramps up and then when the temp drops, it slows, temp rises again because of the slower fan, and then the cycle repeats itself.

    Cheapest GPU for 2D Rendering

    Sure it does. 342.01 supports the 210 in Win10. For 2D rendering, that old driver should work fine. I would probably opt for the 710 all things being equal though, however, they are generally (at least) twice the price on eBay. AMD HD5450/6450's are pretty cheap also. You can get one...

    You can change it anytime within the 90 day window. If you start it now, you are in the queue if the 3080Ti doesn't launch in your 90 day window.

    NVidia and MediaTek to collaborate on ARM gaming laptops

    I think Mediatek shows that this is nothing more than a well built front end for Geforce Now. If it were a purpose built machine for gaming, it would have a purpose built SOC from Nvidia with their graphics built in and not a Mediatek SOC.

    NVidia and MediaTek to collaborate on ARM gaming laptops

    They do make some nicer hardware if you pay up for it, but if I'm going to spend $600+ on a notebook, I think I'd rather have a Windows based one for the flexibility.

    EVGA Step Up to 3XXX card

    They wouldn't let me put in for any step up at all. At this point I would take a 3070 if they would let me get it but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. I'll check it again when I get home.

    Interesting. They wouldn't take my 3060 for step up. Said it wasn't available for that card for me. I have the $389 version that I got direct from them.

    EVGA Step Up to 3XXX card

    I already have a 3090 FE ;). I just couldn't resist stepping up a 3070 to a better card at a reduced price. That being said, I had two 3070s and I put them both in for step ups. The first one I got in December, and I put in for a 3080. The second one I got in January and I put in for a 3090...

    Well, I actually got through to someone. They said that the hard truth is that if your name doesn't match up, they are going to deny it, but then he wasn't sure why they issued the RMA number if they denied it. He said if I have an RMA number it will probably go through anyway. But at the...
