    ASUS B350-F Strix motherboard stopped working after one night?

    I recently purchased an ASUS B350-F Strix motherboard for my new build but had to RMA it because I had thought it was not turning on, and ASUS ended up sending what I believe to be a new one. It turns out I had forgotten that I need to short the PWR_SWITCH pins on the motherboard to get the cpu...

    Why are frametimes smoother on Nvidia than on AMD?

    I was browsing google for frametime graphs to see whether I should buy the gtx 1080 or the 980 ti cause people kept saying the 1080 has massive frametime spikes that have never been fixed. I was never an expert on which gpu company has better frametime stability but I came across a consistent...

    My take on Intel refuse to patch the bug.

    Apparently we all know that intel Chips (all the modern chips that are produced in the last 10 years) have a bug that skips some security checks to improve performance. Basically it checks 999 out of 1000 checks to save time so it can improve performance. Fixing this can cause intel Chips to...

    Ryzen 2 slide in KitGuruTech video

    Take a close look at the Ryzen 2 slide at 08:20 in this video — some remarkable specs, prices and schedule. Too good to be true, so probably fake. Strangely, no one mentions it in the comment section. I've tried to find other sources for this slide, but none shows up.

    I recently upgraded to the Ryzen 5 1600, and was looking at getting an X370 mobo, but it just didn't fit in my budget. I'm impatient, so I went with a B350 chipset.
