    Question what is the best RAM for AMD ryzen 7 2700x

    I'm not sure what RAM to use for the 2700x build. Would like to go with DDR4-3000 or 3200. I'm looking at either GSkill or Corsair. I don't really care about LED lights or heat sink colors. The motherboard is an ASUS x470 Strix-F Gaming. Also, I need to run 32gb of RAM. So is it better to...

    Solved! 2 SSDs vs (SSD + HDD) vs M.2

    I am going to build a new PC and this is my PCpartPicker list. Since X470 gaming Plus does have 2 M.2 slots. I just don't want the clutter of SATA power and data cables in the case, hence inclined to buy M.2 SSDs. I plan to keep the PC 3 years at max and then build a new one again. So almost...

    Seeking comments on new build based on Ryzen Vega, quieter/smaller form factor/integrated graphics/retired-casual gamer/movie watching

    I've been living with a gt610 since my gtx 265 broke and playing some e-sports games with the minimum settings once every few weeks hasn't made me miss a gaming PC at all. I watch more TV serials instead too so quietness has become more important and I'd like to tend more towards an HTPC. I...

    Ryzen 5 Upgrade Options?

    I'm tossing around the idea of upgrading the quad core Ryzen 5 1500X processor in my B350 gaming computer, since the 2nd gen 6-core plus processors are so cheap; the performance in some games does lack a bit as configured. This computer also uses the other Vega 64 card so upping the processing...

    Predictions for Ryzen/EPYC nodes and products into 2021

    I've been thinking about how Zen, Zen+, Zen 2, and Zen 3, all relate to each other. A leaked slide from AMD points to AMD taking a sort of tick tock approach, only naming it "inflection" and "optimization". This has been semi-confirmed by James Prior mentioning it. According to this cadence, we...
