    Water cooling vs. Fan cooling.

    So I'm new to water cooling and working on building my first pc. I Like the idea of water cooling and I think it looks cool. But a little confused on the practicality of it I guess.

    High 7700K Temps with Corsair Hydro H80i and Hyper 212

    Hi All! I did a new build about a month ago and I have noticed some unusually high temperatures with my 7700K. I originally had a Hyper 212 cooler on my build, but after seeing the temps I decided that maybe it wasn't cutting it so I switched to a Corsair Hydro H80i v2. However the temps are...

    Does Ryzen potentially "kill" the unofficial consumer Xeon DIY PC builds?

    I've recently been following all the historical adulation and love for Xeon CPUs that could directly fit consumer boards (LGA 1366 or 2011) or the more recent ones that could easily overclock via BLCK (LGA 1151 on C232 chipsets), especially the E3 series of quad-code hyperthreading CPUs.

    In my limited understand, DMI is the interconnect between the CPU and the southboard / PCH. 2GB/s in 2.0 vs 3.93 GB/s in 3.0. x4 links for both. These mapping perfectly to the link/channel speeds for PCI-E 2.0 and 3.0 respectively in an x4 configuration. Thus the CPU has a PCI-E 2.0x4 or 3.0x4...
