    Looks like Anandtech figured out what was wrong with their reviews and is retesting everything right now. It seems that forcing HPET with the spectre and meltdown patches causes more delays and negatively impacts Intel in gaming performance. https://www.anandtech.com/show/12678/a-timely-discovery-examining-amd-2nd-gen-ryzen-results

    Thanks for sharing. I guess I'll be testing outusint the Enmotus Fuzedrive on my x370 since Storemi is for the 400 series. $60 for the software doesn't seem bad at all. It's only $20 if you plan on using it with a 128gb or smaller ssd

    I still have to rma my 1600 for the segfault issue, now seems like a good time to do it. I wonder if AMD's rma department would let me pay the difference to upgrade the chip they send back to me to one of the new 2xxx series. Seems worth a try. Also seems like the compile scores on Intel got hit pretty hard from the meltdown patches. https://www.anandtech.com/show/12625/amd-second-generation-ryzen-7-2700x-2700-ryzen-5-2600x-2600/13

    Check to see whether or not it's your connection from the card to the monitor first if you haven't already. I've had something similar happen before where it was just the cable. Definitely worth checking to make sure it's not something simple like that before buying a new card. If it is the card you could probably find another 480 on the slightly cheaper side now and be good graphics wise

    Obj705A - No one really plays this?

    @CarbonWard had a status update about it where he said it's bad and he wouldn't play it again. I'm assuming it either needs a gun buff or some better armor by reading his post.
  7. Recommendations on some good high quality case fans? Have a NZXT S340 case with the original NZXT FN V2 fans. Both the fans started making a loud buzzing noise on startup that goes away if I physically open my case, stop the fan by hand, and then let it spin up again(assuming it's a bad bearing?) I wouldn't want to replace them with the same fans.

      You don't want to spin your case fans at 1500rpm let alone 2000 or even 3000. You ll go deaf!

       

      Good case fans run (near)silent at around 800-1000 rpm, while moving a decent amount of air.

      Yeah minimum speed on the 2000 is 500 vs 800 on the 3000. I don't think I'll need it to go anywhere near that high. So I guess I'll go with the 2000. Thanks

      Fyi the 2000rpm one is almost dead silent at 1500rpm inside the s340

  8. I have a 480 and there are no problems in game whatsoever with it.

    I gotta agree with them on the Taichi. Ive had some pain with my 3200 B-die memory and the timings. But for the most part it’s real good for the standard non extreme overclocker.

    Not sure if it’s the right place to post it but you can get an 1800x for $318 with free shipping from these guys right now. https://m.ebay.com/itm/NEW-AMD-RYZEN-7-1800X-8-Core-3-6-GHz-Socket-AM4-YD180XBCAEWOF-Desktop-Processor/272599572981?rmvSB=true&_mwBanner=1&epid=235162167
  11. @Folterknecht since it's running smoothly now is it still possible to be attributed to a hardware issue fixing itself or is it more likely to be a software/driver issue? The only thing I did to fix it was leave it turned in for a few days?
  12. Taichi x370 is in stock on superbiiz if anybody is looking for one: https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MB-X370TAC&c=CJ

  13. So good news is that I haven't had any crashing since I last replied, but during that time I haven't turned off my pc once. I'll try and see what happens when I turn it off and leave it off for half a day or so this weekend to see whether or not it still crashes after starting a game after booting up. I've set up auto notify and check daily for the Taichi but still no luck. I may just end up buying a different high end x370 board if I can't get it in the next week just so my 30 day return period on this one doesn't run out. Any tips for Taichi alternatives? Edit: I was able to buy the Taichi on Superbiiz so I should hopefully not have anymore problems. Also it's going to be a fun experience overclocking my CPU for the first time when it comes in.
  14. I was looking at the taichi initially but it's always out of stock sadly. Also not sure how accurate it is but my observation basically shows that the longer I have the pc turned on the less likely it is to freeze.
  15. Yeah I should be able to I've had the board for less than two weeks. Any suggestions for a different board?
