The chip shortage is lessening as time goes along. I paid I think $330 for my 5600X? With the performance gains over the 3600 that extra...

The motherboard is worth $90, leaving you spending $271 on a 3600. Given that prices are set to drop for AMD's 5600X given the new...

Are you planning to use the tablet as a MIDI interface? If you want to learn piano pieces, just print out the sheets and annotate it with a...

There was a deal on Western Digital CA where the 8TB WD Golds were sold for $200ish all up when shipping and import taxes were accounted...

I'm not sure how useful these charts are. I've run the Assassin III at full fan speed and it's definitely louder than the NH-D15 at full...

This is OzBargain. I'm giving value oriented advice to people, for a part whose function it is to make your computer run cooler. I think...

I built a Meshilicious with a 240mm EK AIO and it fit perfectly. The tubes were up against the SFX-L PSU I used, but it wasn't that big of...

A well chosen power supply, case and CPU cooler should transition through many builds. My friend's Fractal Define R4 that I set him up with...

Yup, PBO + Undervolt. Worse case torture load the chip hits 83 degrees with a 22 degree ambient. This is well within its parameters. I also...

Oops I meant $350 for the CPU. My point still stands.

I have a $110 Deepcool Assassin 3 and my 5600X is whisper quiet with the same boost clocks as you. Barring space restrictions there's no...

Assuming $350 for the CPU that leaves you with $150 for the AIO. The LF2 has gone down below $150 before, and the CPU has definitely gone...

I run a 6900XT in my PC and my whole system load has never once exceeded 500W. They highball the PSU requirements on the website because...

It's probably that you wired it up to the PSU poorly (using a splitter 2x8 pin instead of 2 independent ones), or that your PSU is tripping...

No no not trying to convince you, but just putting forward my perspective that the audio world is a lot more smoke and mirrors than people...

It's not just good on paper. It's been independently measured to be cleaner than your Zen DAC. In general though headphones amps do not...

How does one use Cashrewards in combination with the mobile app?
28/05/2021 - 22:43
According to Notebookcheck's averaged benchmarks it is. Everything is made in China. If you're going to be racist at least try to be...

Go on AliExpress and grab a Tempotec Sonata HD Pro. For $50 you get 110DB SINAD and a very low THD to boot, very low jitter, decent...

I used Tidal for months, I ripped FLACs from Tidal directly and looked at them in a spectrum analyser... Turns out some of them weren't...

Ah yes, 88000khz, providing audible Nyquist frequencies up to... 44000khz. Given our hearing range massively tapers off past 20000khz (and...
10/05/2021 - 07:04
It's objectively worse than FLAC, which is virtually indistinguishable from LAME/OPUS/AAC in a double blind test in all but the most...

"Poorly" as in "XMP Profiles weren't stable" poorly. I tested on an X570 Platform with Zen+ and Zen2 chips.

This is just the most pretentious audiophile BS. Sure higher end audio equipment can be lower in distortion, but that isn't always the...

The Engineer has no idea about my sound preferences or what gear I have. Also the notion that engineers always use the 'good stuff' is...

I have tried 4 Patriot kits now. They all were rated between 3200 and 3600, and all had Samsung A-Die. They all ran very poorly, and...

If it gets this cheap again I'm selling my Modius and switching over to this DAC.
26/02/2021 - 10:16
The silliest 'bargain' I've ever seen. You'd be a real audiofool to buy one.
13/02/2021 - 01:06
Back fan + heatsink is more trouble than just... a better VRM solution. The 3600 pushes 80W+ when you OC it. Stress testing an OC requires...
