>Advice on building or upgrading
Post your build list or current specifications, including a monitor: https://pcpartpicker.com/
Provide specific use cases (like playing vidya, editing or programming).
Specify your budget and region.
Think twice before deciding to buy something to avoid buyer's remorse.

At least one PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot.
Good VRM (power delivery) is required for CPUs like the i5 13500 and above.
Don't pair a K CPU with a B mobo chipset.

HTPC(4K60)/Web Browsing: 5600G, 14100/12100
Vidya: 7600, 7500F, 12600K, 12700KF; budget: 5600, 12400F
Overkill vidya: 7800X3D; alternate: 14600K/13600K
Workstation: 7950X, 14700K, 7900X; budget: i5 13500
AM4 upgrade: 5600, 5800X3D
Avoid iGPU-less CPUs, 5600X (if it is more expensive than the 5600)

>CPU coolers
Air: Phantom Spirit EVO/Peerless Assassin 120 SE; budget: Freezer 36 Air
Liquid: Arctic Liquid Freezer III
Avoid liquid coolers with a single 120mm fan.

DDR4: Zen3/AM4 - 2x 16GB 3600 MT/s CL18; for locked "non-K" 12th/13th/LGA1700 - 2x 16GB 3200 MT/s CL16
DDR5: Zen4/AM5 - 2x 16GB 6000 MT/s CL30; for unlocked "K" 13th/14th/LGA1700 - 2x 16GB 6400MT/s CL32
Slower kits are also fine, if much cheaper. Just make sure you check the benchmark comparisons.
Note that the sweetspots are bound to change with the upcoming Zen5 and Meteor Lake processors.

Avoid: outdated Samsung 970 Evo Plus, cheapest poorfag NVMe SSDs.

Avoid: GPUs that were used for shitcoin mining, 4070 Ti, 4060 Ti, 3050, NVIDIA GPUs in general if you're a Linuxfag.
1080p: used 3070/3060 Ti, 4060/3060 12 GB, 7600/6650 XT/6600 XT; budget: 6600; poorfag: used 2060
1440p: 4070S/4070, 7900 GRE; budget: 6700 XT
2160p: 4080S/4080 (at MSRP); budget: 4070S Ti (avoid MSI models), 7900 XT/XTX
Production: 4090, used 3090; budget: 4060 Ti 16GB; poorfag: 3060 12GB

Fully seat a 12VHPWR connector in its socket, otherwise the connection can melt.

Avoid: untested units, Bronze/Silver rated (assuming you live in yuroland).
Not worth buying a new PSU unless it's ATX 3.0 compliant.
Aim for 50-75% PSU utilization at full system load.

>Case (from $ to $$$)
mATX: I don't fucking know.
ATX: Lian Li Lancool 216, Lian Li Lancool III, Fractal Torrent.
AVOID: 'Silent' cases, fanless cases, Corsair 4000D airflow, Montech AIR 903 Base (awful stock fans).

Avoid: panels with less than 120 Hz refresh rates, without a single DisplayPort input and Variable Refresh Rate technology (G-Sync/FreeSync).
Check professional reviews for any monitor before you buy at sites like TFTCentral, pcmonitors.info, Monitors Unboxed, or RTINGs.
The bottom tier monitor for any decent gaming build has a 144+ Hz 24" 1080p IPS panel, of which there are many on market for around $125 (some great ones go even as low as $100).
Aim for a panel with low response times and perceived motion blur mode (Black Frame Insertion).
1440p 27" high refresh IPS is a common target for many new builds. 1440p is relatively easy to drive with even mid-range graphics cards.
Decent 2160p (4K) gaming monitors start at around $500.
OLED monitors have good HDR (including infinite contrast) and nearly instant pixel response times. However, potential burn-in is an important consideration for OLED monitors.
TL;DR: They all suck.

Install Ventoy on a flash drive, then transfer the iso files to it.

What did ya mean anon?
I got a 100Hz monitor for cheap. Never had anything beyond 60 before. Is that bad? Worse than 120?
I'm still stuck at 60Hz, if you are at 100Hz you are doing better than me.
Aside from higher just being generically better, 120 is nice for video content because it's an integer multiple of both 24 and 60, 100 is kind of an awkward spot. If it has VRR (either FreeSync or G-Sync) that shouldn't matter, though.
Replies: >>238914
Specifically 120 is a multiple of 24, 30, and 60, so with a handful of fractional refresh rate modes for NTSC content and 50/100Hz for PAL, you have every legacy video standard covered while still looking snappy. 144Hz exists because for a long time it was the highest refresh rate HDMI and DisplayPort supported at 1080p without aggressive chroma subsampling.
Replies: >>238937
You'll be fine for the reasons other anons mentioned, but if you see a 120Hz monitor for cheap then that will probably be good for many years (assuming it doesn't catch fire due to chink manufacturing).
1. At such high refresh rates nobody cares if one frame's duration is a little shorter each second.
2. PAL/NTSC doesn't matter anymore. Both are a relict from CRT monitors running at local power frequency. Movies were generally shot at half (25/30Hz) or most often 24 Hz conforming to neither PAL nor NTSC. You're not playing much video games from those times anyway these days.

I am just waiting for the Chinese to make a powerful, Switch-like hybrid emulation console and then i am set for life.

Check gsmarena for technical data and compare camera pictures, they have a nice view for that and always shoot the same pics from the same angle to keep it comparable. Phone cameras are actually quite useful, since you're getting it anyway might as well get a good one. Other things to aim for are:
>good battery life
Bigger is better here. Some advertise very fast charging speeds, but that isn't a substitute when you're not near a power outlet and it degrades battery life.
>good screen
This one is subjective. High brightness and contrast help when you want to see anything outside in bright sunlight, fairly useless indoors and in overcast weather. OLED burn-in is a problem when you use a phone as a pocket book reader and I've had it happen when I used one for car navigation and forgot to turn it off during a break once. For watching videos and photos, OLED screens are good.
Expensive high-tier phones aren't worth it. You don't need a top of the line SOC and huge RAM for some interwebs browsing, shooting pictures and checking you bank account. They also tend to omit useful features, so you'd actually pay more to get less. IIRC something around 300$, low-mid tier level, is all you need.

Personally, I've had good experience with chinkshit phones, especially Xiaomi redmi models. Worked well for everyone I know that used them, cheap and alright for their price. Just note that chinks put ads into preinstalled utilities like the fucking file browser, so you need to install another from fdroid. I've also used ASUS ROG phone and it turned out those gaymur things are actually quite good: they pack huge batteries lasting about 2 days or more of regular phone use and asus in particular has a feature that lets you limit charging speed and max charge to extend battery life and run directly off a power supply without charging, good for navigation during a long drive. The price is too high to recommend, but if you find an older model on sale consider it.

>leak/clog up
Use santoprene tubing with distilled water and 5-20% dowfrost HD as an additive.
Nothing grows in 20% Dowfrost HD, and corrosion clogs won't happen.
Don't use permeable caps on your reservoir, they just speed up passive water loss, and leak if you overfill or there's a pressure change.
Dowfrost HD says to change the coolant yearly, but I have a mixed metal loop (aluminium, copper and chrome) that hasn't been changed in 4 years and everything is still fine.

Do what I just said and it won't happen, even if your computer room freezes.

I'm confused. The 12400 has lower threads/cores/clock speed but is faster than the 3950x according to userbenchmark? How does that work?
userbenchmark is an intel shill if I recall correctly.
Unless you're doing rendering or other heavily multithreaded work that 3950X is shit, the 12400 is gonna destroy it in games, I'd take a 5700X for 200 bucks instead, that would actually be good

I recommend looking up video benchmarks and seeing what performance they are getting in games and compare the cpus
Yes but
Anything above 8 core utilization is niche; most games do 4-6 well, some have negative scaling with too man cores.
The 3950X due to it's architecture has massive penalty to latency if your task uses more than 4 cores (4 core per CCX, 2 CCX per CCD and 2 CCDs in total), games are super sensitive to latency, hence it's even worse.

Pretty much anything once high framerate are involved, emulation in general, older massively single core games also might surprise you considering in some cases it can't even beat OC'ed Sandy Bridge stuff.
Zen2 is just not good at anything that isn't massively parallelized, games simply aren't and I'd take a 6 core from a non shit architecture any fucking day over a 3950X if my goal was games.

And for 200 bucks you have a few much better choices than a 3950X on either side, unless your only goal is encoding high res video or some shit.
And especially if you're using a B350 mobo I'm pretty sure that 3950X is gonna throttle to shit because the VRM can't keep up.

Why go for the shit no one actually cares about, no one is using those exploits in the wild and older Zen has similar exploits now, would've been simpler to go for the self destructing chipset and CPU killing itself starting from 1.4v

AMD has never fucked up as badly as Meltdown, in severity or in performance penalty to mitigate. The nature of Meltdown (context checking that exists on AMD just doesn't on Intel) also makes it clear they knew they were essentially cheating by opening a huge potential security hole in the name of IPC and didn't care. Any AMD-specific bugs found thus far (like the CTS Labs exploits) were actual nothingburgers overhyped by "researchers" getting kickbacks from Intel. So I say again, come back to me after you run those benchmarks without cheating.
All research done so far suggests PSP doesn't actually do anything without other software (like Computrace) telling it to do bad things. Most motherboards will have an option in firmware settings that claims to hide its mailbox registers from the rest of the system. It's not as good as me_cleaner straight up obliterating the parts of the firmware that do bad things, but as long as you're not doing anything stupid like using Windows it's good enough for anon usage.

My thanks goes to the Anon who encoded the first mugi tea webm here long ago. It inspired me to experiment with several AV1 encoders until I managed to match the quality of his libaom-av1 encode using SVT-AV1. My latest encode of the original source for demonstration purposes is the second file. The command used to encode the second and third files was the following:

ffmpeg -i "input.webm" -c:v libsvtav1 -crf 60 -preset 5 -svtav1-params tune=0:keyint=10s:enable-overlays=1:scd=1:scm=2 -pix_fmt yuv420p10le -c:a libopus -ac 2 output.webm

You can see from the images how long the files took to encode on a Ryzen 7 7700X using crf 60 and preset 5. mugitea took 3min 41sec, anna-logue took 3 min 11sec. It helps to check that the encoder makes use of avx512 properly if your processor supports it, I tried ffmpeg from some other source and it refused to use make use of avx512 for some reason and fell back to avx2 or something more ancient.

I used the SVT-AV1 encoder included in ffmpeg-master-latest-linux64-gpl.tar.xz from https://github.com/BtbN/FFmpeg-Builds

If you're on linux, all you need to do is put the executables from the bin folder of the archive into a folder in your $PATH that takes priority over whatever is already installed on your system. Just type $PATH in a terminal window and put the files in one of the earlier folders it prints out, then reopen the terminal window and run the ffmpeg command without arguments to see if it's now using the correct one. (in my case I put them in /usr/local/bin) If you're on windows, then I cannot be of assistance, the way you invoke the ffmpeg command seems a little different from what I've been using on linux

That's from the second file, right? Reckon it's caused by the 10-bit colors (-pix_fmt yuv420p10le)?
I know starving short videos like this of bitrate with a high crf value is dumb, might make them more resource intensive to decode when playing back too? My settings are a result of semi-blind experimentation, throwing the kitchen sink at the encoder in a way, to see what works.
Fair enough thanks for the info. I’ll keep an eye out on the 4070/ti series. Will games be properly made in the future to warrant shelling out $1200+ on a card? Apparently new games aren’t even properly optimized to warrant owning a 4090? The trend among most -90 owners seems to be emulation

>but anon, using that and manually setting the bitrate was how I made those.

So you encoded that original mugi tea webm using a fixed 200k bitrate with libaom-av1, but in windows where that codec is used by calling "-vcodec av1"? If that's the case, I understand. Problem is, I never properly learned how to use that encoder effectively. I experimented with the "tiles and rows" thing to get it to properly utilize all 16 cores of my cpu, but filesize and quality wise the results I got were still lackluster. Turning to SVT-AV1 was a last ditch effort to one up you with a different encoder. If you have a command you want me to encode with using libaom-av1 (-vcodec av1), then please provide that and I'll give it a go for the sake of comparison.

You can sorta do it with a specific PS2 to PC adapter but that's just not reasonable, I suppose if you managed to trick it into thinking it's plugged to a PS3 and using a PS3 controller driver on PC you might get it to do it as well but that sounds complicated.

Also to add to that in most case it's not a big loss, you can just rebind your way around it by using triggers, the one big outlier is MGS2-3 where you can't do a good usable rebind for anything pressure sensitive.

libaom-av1 is the reference encoder for AV1, basically the original tech demo for AV1. As an encoder it's not built for speed unless you force it to fully utilize your cpu through additional commands.

Maybe you were running out of memory? I looked at how much memory SVT-AV1 ate up when encoding mugi tea again... It's memory usage maxed out at 5.5GB at the end of encoding that 1min 50sec video. I have 32GB RAM and haven't suffered from any freezes because of the encoder yet, though I've only encoded either short videos at high res or long videos at low res, aiming for the board filesize limit. If I were to use it to re encode a several hour long movie at full resolution, it's entirely possible that I'd run out of memory too at that point. That's where something like https://github.com/master-of-zen/Av1an might help, if it can be used to divide the encoding job into separate chunks. I tried installing it in the past and failed, so don't ask what the program actually does, it looks interesting though

Fury GPU
>After almost four years of developing a custom full-stack GPU in my spare time, I figured it was about time to start putting together some materials to highlight the project, its technical details, and its future. This has been my first (and only!) FPGA design, and I hope to use this space to share some of what I have learned while building this extremely complicated piece of hardware.
>Throughout the last fourteen years of my career in the games industry (and for nearly a decade before in my spare time!) I’ve been focused on the software side of rendering - the techniques necessary to utilize the GPU hardware to render 3D graphics at real-time framerates. While I was extremely familiar with everything involved in this process on the host side, the actual details of how the hardware that performed these actions was built was not something I had ever had access to. After putting together Ben Eater’s 8-bit breadboard computer and then picking up an Arty Z7 development board on a whim, I realized that building a GPU from scratch, while a massive and daunting project, was something I certainly could teach myself to do. I’d spend a few months making a spinning cube or something, and be done with it.
>Nearly four years later and the project has turned from a neat little tech demo idea into a fully-fledged, real-world, plug-it-into-your-computer GPU. I taught myself SystemVerilog, figured out how FPGAs work, and spent countless hours refactoring, redesigning, and streamlining the design until I could get Quake to render at semi-real-time framerates. During this time, Xilinx released their Kria SoMs - insanely cheap Zynq UltraScale+ FPGAs with a ton of DSP units and a (comparatively) massive amount of LUTs and FFs, and of particular interest, a hardened PCIe core. The next step was clear - this GPU needed to become a real GPU. One I could plug into my computer and use to play real games.
>Designing the schematic for and laying out a PCIe graphics card, even with much of the FPGA circuitry built into the SOM, was a herculean effort. However, I’d already spent several years on the project, so why not? After several months of work laying out the board in KiCad and fixing all the issues I’d find as soon as JLCPCB delivered each revision, I finally had a board with a powerful FPGA, DisplayPort and HDMI output, and a 4-lane PCIe connector that I could plug into my test rig and write drivers for.
>Of all the parts of this project, writing Windows drivers for it have been the most painful. Eventually, I got everything working. I wrote a custom graphics API to communicate with the GPU, wrote Windows kernel drivers for the display and audio, and now have a fully-functional piece of graphics hardware that can render Quake at a solid 60 frames per second.
>While I’m writing all of this after the fact, I do hope that some of what I eventually detail here will prove useful (or at least, interesting) to the next person that decides to embark on such a ridiculous journey.

Call me an autistic fucker but I'm trying to find computer mice/keyboards that don't have plastic bits where my hands commonly go on them. I'm not a hippie that cares about them being made out of plastic in general, I just hate the feeling of when my hand gets all sweaty and gets on plastic like that for a while. I'd try just wearing gloves but any I've tried just get stuffy around summertime.
Naturally trying to look that up brings nothing or incredibly overpriced mice, I got suggested some bamboo mice and keyboards too but they end up being wireless and without a side button for the mouse.
Did anyone manage to find any mice made out of mostly other materials than plastic? Any glove recommendations also helps too.

Either from working out, working on some shit outside, banging ur mom, if something in a video game's got me sweaty, or some combination of the four.
I don't see the problem unless your sweat literally is destroying the mouse but if that's the case you're fucked in general  but if this is just about it just being the feeling or being slippery you could always buy grip tape for your mouse
mice made out of different materials than plastic are rare and often they're made as nothing more than  a gimmick and are worthless for anything but word and browsing the web if not it's some extremely gimmicky gamer  mouse that's 150-300$ just for a minor reduction in weight and often are so tiny they'll cause hand pain and be uncomfortable in general

If friction is too low then you're relying on inertia to smooth out any muscle imprecision.
The only things that matter are stiction and weight once friction becomes low enough for the small finger muscles to move the mouse.
If weight is too low, vibrations will affect your pointer. If weight is too high you won't be able to accelerate fast enough.
If friction is too low (air hockey puck), vibrations will affect your pointer. If it's too high it won't feel right.

It's all a meme and 99% of mice are good enough as long as the stiction is low enough (teflon pads on plant/animal based surface).
If you have a really cheap mouse you might need to put a lead fishing weight in it and tape some teflon pads on the bottom.
because  no one can easily click on people's head  consistently  when there is little to no friction
which is why hybrid pads are gaining popularity slowly

The inability to get this shit outside the US notwithstanding (unless you're ready to buy hundreds of gallons of the stuff, and you can't trust local equivalents as they don't necessarily include the agents that prevent the acid products from glycols degrading over time to form or might not be as compatible with steel / some forms of solders), you forget to mention that is any part of your loop uses acrylic, which could easily be the case for the tank, it will at some point in time shatter by itself as glycols cause micro fractures in acrylic over time.

It's just propylene glycol antifreeze. Look for "pet safe" antifreeze at the auto store. Premix is probably around 18-20%, and you're safe to dilute it down to 10%.
As for the acrylic cracking, I've never seen cracks form on a pump+res combo (5+ years in use with temperature swings from -27C to 43C).
Santoprene is just a polymer of EPDM with polypropylene. EPDM tubing is fully compatible with propylene glycol, and can be found on ali.

Acrylic loops are for fags anyway, just like rgb.

>additives to prevent copper degradation from byproducts of glycol degradation
>additives to prevent it affecting galvanized steel

I've spent hours skimming fucking technical details and specifications, it simply isn't "just" propylene glycol based antifreeze, the second best thing I've found is propylene glycol made for industrial HVAC systems and it clearly states you should not dilute past 28% with deionized water if you care about corrosion whereas Dowfrost HD goes all the way down to 20% and states you should adjust inhibitor levels past that point

>As for the acrylic cracking, I've never seen cracks form on a pump+res combo (5+ years in use with temperature swings from -27C to 43C).
Higher degradations at higher fluid temps and higher concentrations, also yeah guess glycols make sense if you're going sub zero in your loop.,

Wrong, I've asked multiple people and they all told me the same, after telling me using glycols for ambient temp was retarded, industrial glycols for HVAC have more additives by default than automotive antifreeze and unless it's for a short time you should be using the higher grade stuff for a loop, and I'd tend to agree why cheap out on your cooling for no good reason

I've also had one tell me at the very least use biocide + anti corrosion additives if you're gonna use regular antifreeze, pointed me towards Motul MoCool as one that's easy to find everywhere.
I've had one point me towards bar / alcohol distillation supplies as well because some of those are dowfrost HD rebadge and might be available in smaller quantities / better WW availability.

They probably should be electrically limited though. Asus had to excrete a firmware update for their Intel motherboards because they were programmed to inflate your CPU with 4096W of power and they're just now starting to blow up from being overvolted. All to get 1% better benchmark scores in a bullshit toms review. I knew this was going to bite them in the ass eventually, everything has been overvolted to the point of premature death from the factory so Intel/AMD can pretend we haven't hit the limit of what silicon can do already, motherboard vendors have been doing the same thing for a decade, something had to give.

The current intel problem is a lot more than just unlocked power limits on mobo because intel doesn't enforce their limit as default like AMD.
At stock with default power limits there's a substantial amount of higher tier intel chips (13900k / 14900K / 14700K / 13900KS / 14900KS) that ae not stable and the actual problem is that the voltage to frequency curve is a bit too optimistic for what he chips can actually do on average so thy actually need more voltage.

a family member of mine's got an omen prebuilt, he wanted some new RAM sticks to put in there for his birthday. so i checked in the BIOS of it and there doesn't seem to be a way to change RAM timings. so no clue if i can even make it work if i can't even change the bios internal settings, especially since the ones i'm planning on work better if you can change the timings.
i can pretty much still buy most modern ram sticks, made for the motherboard of course, and they'll still work fine without much error, right? this is probably a stupid question all in all, but need to make sure.
for reference, i did check online to see if any advanced settings could be unlocked on these, and the only answer i got was that you have to quickly press a certain series of keys and then HOPE the manufacturer lets you do it anyway, and apparently that's only on some versions, for other versions it might be a DIFFERENT key

Wrong, anyone using one of those has already been limited by it, if it's game you have to content yourself with upscaled 1080p  if you want decent framerates in some games at ultra presets (inb4 you don't use ultra when you buy the best GPU around) and if you do AI shit more is always better.

by logic, one would figure that it could (keyword) potentially (keyword) damage the fans if they spin faster than what they're supposed to. additionally, the more something is used the more it wears out, so you're shortening their life without actually using them. however both likely have an extremely insignificant impact.

AMD Ryzen 8000F Series Processors Are Finally Here
>The Zen 4 Ryzen 8000F Series processors are officially launched by AMD. The two new offerings by AMD are the Ryzen 7 8700F and the Ryzen 5 8400F. As the name suggests, the new chips won’t include integrated graphics (RDNA3), similar to Intel’s F line of processors. They share the same TSMC’s 4nm Zen 4 platform as the 8000G series (Phoenix). Although they sound like a good deal, you should note that you need to pair them with a dedicated graphics card, unlike the G series. That won’t be a problem if you already own one, though. Moreover, the AI NPU, which will be an AI breath for the Windows 24H2 Update, is featured only in the Ryzen 7 8700F.

>That's according to a report by Taiwan newspaper United Daily News (UDN), in which it states that the overall design has already been finalized, with full completion being achieved by the end of 2024.

>Potentially, this is epic news. There's absolutely no doubting the Arm instruction set makes for more efficient chips. Some recent leaked data from Dell indicates that its new laptops with the Arm-based Qualcomm X Plus chip will offer nearly double the battery life of their traditional x86 equivalents.
>Without a doubt, one of the weakest aspects of current gaming handhelds is poor battery life. At the same time, Nvidia graphics currently can't be had in a handheld beyond the OG Nintendo Switch. So, the prospect of Arm-based efficiency and Nvidia graphics in a handheld is pretty compelling.

Even if you were to be so charitable as to call the FX8XXX a 4 cores, they were still cheaper at the time than the Ryzen 1400, so yes they were faster, but they weren't cheaper
Otherwise FX8350 vs Ryzen 1700 was 50% faster at over 2x the price.

>AMD will likely pick up some of what Apple did.
No, the biggest reason why they're so fucking fast is shared RAM+VRAM with a very wide bus and on package so lower latency, this is NEVER happening on desktop as it would require people to be okay with soldered RAM and CPU.
Strix Halo is the closest it'll ever get and they're way more conservative with it than Apple (4 channels vs 8 or 16 channels) 
Now maybe 4 channel on desktop will become a thing and that would be cool but it still doesn't come close to being the same bandwidth and it still isn't unified with the GPU.

The other big thing is basically what intel is doing with rentable units, aka one "super" P core with extra die space made strictly for single thread performance that falls off quite  bit when you actually have to do MT tasks.
>In a core-to-core comparison

I don't have an AiO because I'm paranoid about failures on a 24/7 machine, still doesn't change that AiO provide better cooling and thus better performance on any CPU which aims for a thermal limit.
I don't get what's complicated about understanding that if the CPU reduces frequency to cope with temps that means less performance and thus a cooler holding 5-00C below the throttle temp would have better perf than one riding the throttle temp all the time, but then you happened.

It's stupid, you remove the shroud and fans and you ziptie case fans, the default heatsink on most GPU is bigger and better suited to GPUs in general, literally the number one reason why GPU air-cooling sucks is the fans being absolute fucking trash except on the Noctua fitted ones (either the ASUS collab or that one JP SI's custom shroud).
To give you an idea of how bad stock fans usually are, you can most likely replace them with a pair of Arctic P12 and still outperform the stock fans set to 100%

Burning a whole mobo from overdrawing a fan header is possible and a very stupid way to fuck your shit up (though it's hard to find fans that go above 0.5 Amp without knowing what to look for so you should be fine so long as you keep it to 2 fans per header.)
