  • Re: "Core Temp" - A program for accurate Core, Core 2 and K8 CPU temperature monitoring

    @The-Coolest As a start, you can read the tCTL sensor and subtract 20C from readings on the 1700X, 1800X, 1600X to obtain the real Tjunction temp. Treat tCTL = Tjunction on the 1700, 1600, 1500X, 1400.

    I recommend these:

    Geil EVO X - GEX416GB3200C16DC [16-16-16-36 @ 1.35v]
    G.Skill Trident Z - F4-3200C16D-16GTZR [16-18-18-36 @ 1.35v]
    Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 VERSION 5.39 [16-18-18-36 @ 1.35v]

    Ryzen really benefits from faster ram, so getting to 2933 or 3200 can be a big boost.

    This one is too good not to post. Dual-USB 20,000mAh charger (~5x phone charges) from an awesome brand for just $17 w/ Prime: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0176HQ1O8

    Use code AZ4EXDHC.

    You very well may. Vsync can buffer up to 3 frames, depending on how it is implemented. So if you're running at 60 FPS (16ms), events you're reacting to on-screen and/or server updates may not be rendered out to your eyeballs for n+3 frames... or a full 48ms later. The potential perils of vsync!

  • Re: AMD Ryzen

    TDP ratings are strictly thermal ratings. Power doesn't factor into the actual equation. The 65W TDP units can consume about peak 87W electrical, the 95W TDP units about 125W peak electrical. But lower TDP ratings do permit a smaller and quieter heatsink/fan speed.

    I'd still get the 1600X.
