    Had some image retention issues with m 2713H so I had some back and forth with Dell. Ended up with 3 panels, all with the same issues. First got a refurbished one, which was perfectly fine except it had the exact same issues as the first one. They then decided they would swap the refurb for a brand new one and see if I still had the same issue. Got the new monitor, same issue, at which point they basically said it's working as intended.

    Never came around to pick up the refurb tho, so I decided to keep that one and sell the new one for the same I gave for the monitor in the first place. Pretty good deal imo

    I'm looking forward to the reviews tbh.

    I'm honestly not setting my hopes too high, I'm willing to bet good money they'll have temperature issues and not be as good single threaded as they're claiming but if they're anywhere near close then we're back to the good old phenom II days

    Single-thread performance is good, although trailing the 7700K by a bit because Rysen can't clock as high. I don't expect temperature issues with the CPU at all, their TDP is fairly low and AMD knows how to mount a heat-spreader so it doesn't add 20c to the damn chip. Big issue seems to be motherboards. The cheaper ones are reported to be holding 8-core Rysens back due to weak VRMs.

    AMD back? Hell yeah. If I was building a new system soon I'd be going for a 1700X, no question.

    I got an old workstation from work and the best card I could get for it was a 1050Ti. Really wish I had the money spare to go for a small all AMD build

    If only They had managed to get Vega delivered at the same time, still the 2-3 months wait will be enough for the issues with RyZen to be identified and what motherboards and chipsets are viable to show. But I still don't feel any need to upgrade my I7 920 the games it does not play wont play well with any computer any way, feels like I would be buying a PC just for the sake of new and i have some cash available... not the way I like to make decisions.

    Hi guys.

    I have a Intel i7 5820k with a noctua nh-15d for over 2 years now.
    I'm not sure, but I think it's running hotter now then it did in the beginning. Could it be that I have to replace the thermal paste already? Or is the chance higher that I just remember wrong?

    There is no reason you should have to replace the thermal paste unless it wasn't properly applied in the first place. What are the temps and what clocks do you run?

    I assume you've taken a hoover to the inside of the case to get rid of any dust stuck in the heatsinks?

    Actually, thermal paste should be replaced once in a while just to make sure it hasn't dripped around or it hasn't solidified unnaturally. Obviously if you did everything perfect and with top end paste just take a hoover to the case, see what happens.

    Have you tried soaking it in milk for half an hour? Helps rehydrate the paste without cracking the layer, due to the fat content.

    Id be careful unless you're using deionized water. Can be harmful. Best to stick to a non ionic solvent like milk or coca cola imho

    AMD becoming good again, what?

    I'm considering buying a new PC but at this stage am essentially clueless; I haven't paid any attention to new releases for about 4-5 years. Any suggestions on where to start? (OP looks abandoned, or is it still relevant?)
