    Looking for 4TB SSD for games...not NVME.

    Hello! So from tests, it seems most games load about the same speed from the SSD as they do from NVME with small differences and both much better than HDDs. So I figured I could get a 4TB SSD for a lower price than NVME to fill the one SATA port I still have available and move most of my slow...

    Asus x570 Hero wifi shows 1.449 vcore in bios in Auto for 5950x...why?

    I am confused why the Bios shows such a high vCore with everyting Auto after restoring Defaults after installing the CPU. This is the lastest BIOS. In CPU-Z I see it drop more but sometimes I will see a spike to 1.44 again. Is this a bug or what is going on? First AMD build since Phenom II so I...

    I am new at AMD (last one was a Phenom II 965!) so just trying to figure out if moving to PC3600 C14 from my current PC3200 C14 will offer any real advantages or just for benchmarking. I do a lot of Photoshop, Lightroom and Capture One. Also Premiere and VrGaming. Thanks!

    Moving from i9900k to 5900x (or 5950x) first AMD build since Phenom ii !

    XL2740 or XL2546 or other?

    So I was leaning towards the 27" because of the size as my editing monitor is a 32" so dropping to 24" is a bit too much but I guess I can sit VERY close to it to compensate. It looks from my research that both of these use older TN panels with bad IQ? I know it is for gaming but still... The...
