  1. It just downloads fresh air through the invisible side vents.
  2. Just bench more and beat him this season as well
  3. Team cup is often a display of who has the most old crap. Having all the subs filled in every category is worth more points than just having really good subs in a few categories. Even if we did have coverage of that category with better CPUs, still nothing wrong with running the Athlon. If a better sub gets taken down for some reason, its good to have backups.
  4. "3 core scores only. Core unlocking allowed, no core disabling." So, you can't use it unfortunately.
  5. Picked up some bling for the older platforms that I'll hopefully bench someday
  6. I really don't need more games in my backlog that I'll never play. I did get a couple DLC for Assetto to guilt myself into actually using my racing sim
  7. Went a similar route as Damric but with a white aesthetic. If we could have done microcenter in store deals, it would have a been a 5800X3D combo with a 4080 super lol PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/fWfKjH CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D 4.2 GHz 8-Core Processor ($384.99 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: Thermalright Assassin X Refined SE ARGB 66.17 CFM CPU Cooler ($17.91 @ Newegg Sellers) Motherboard: Gigabyte B650 AORUS ELITE AX ICE ATX AM5 Motherboard ($199.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Silicon Power XPOWER Zenith Gaming 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-6000 CL30 Memory ($92.97 @ B&H) Storage: Kingston NV2 2 TB M.2-2280 PCIe 4.0 X4 NVME Solid State Drive ($114.99 @ Amazon) Video Card: Sapphire PURE Radeon RX 7900 GRE 16 GB Video Card ($544.99 @ Newegg) Case: MagniumGear Neo Air 2 ATX Mid Tower Case ($59.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: MSI MPG A750GF 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Newegg) Total: $1495.82
  8. I did tweak all the timings and upped voltage. No idea what they were off the top of my head. I probably still have that profile saved in the motherboard though. I can't check right now since I'm in South Carolina for work. This was on 10th/11th gen. 10850K, 11600K, 11900K. Like I said I don't have kaby lake, just was saying that Intel seems to clock well with those B-die sticks.
  9. I don't have any Kaby lake systems so IDK specifics of what you should try, but I have several B-die kits and they do pretty good on intel. I am not a RAM OC guy at all and easily took 32GB 3200c14 dual rank kits up to 4200c16. I need to see what my 16GB Royal kit will really do. Just running XMP 4800C17 currently.
  10. I'm continuing my trend of budget boards with nice keycaps lol RAMA KAT Explosion artisan. Was supposedly "in stock" but I ordered May 7th and it showed up today. The rest of the keycaps are Infinikey Cabernet. I'll take some nice pictures of the whole board at some point but it's just a cheap beater. Epomaker EK68 VIA Kit that I got for practically nothing open box. Wired and Bluetooth work but the 2.4g wireless adapter seems bad. I use it wired so it doesn't bother me. Tossed a mix of switches I had laying around. Redragon pandas for the Alphas and Cherry MX Clear modifiers.
  11. I'll get all the other teams as drunk as me so you can easily beat them
  12. Good news is that my 4070 ti seems fine. I went ahead and fired all the 4000 series cards up last night. The 4060s have much more limited tuning. One is in linux so it's just doing its thing. The other in windows I can get down to 89w at just over 3mil... VS the 4070 ti I'm able to run at 128w and still do over 10mil. Now that the sun is really beating on the side of the house the temp in the office is already climbing. So I'll likely end up pausing everything and only running in the dark of the night.
  13. We are just splitting hairs at this point, but Kaby lake desktop CPUs launched in 2017 which would have been B250 which were still locked down. They didn't stop until B560 which was Rocket Lake (11th gen).
