Questions & Answers

The price difference between Amazon at almost $2000 and AMD's 799 on the same site is ridiculous. What is the difference?

However, I am not willing to pay 1100 dollars if the warranty is not one year. It is a risk that is too great

Does anyone know why this product is being sold at almost twice the suggested retail price?

Your purchase is coming from a third-party scalper, which probably explains the price difference. It is available on Amazon for the same price as the standard

If I don't order today, I will have to wait for the next day! ?

You can beat the bots if you play this game The CPU is defective and full of WHEA errors (DEFECTIVE CPU)
3/5

Could you please tell me what I should After a year of custom building PCs, I have finally built one. After I had originally intended to purchase the 5900x, this one became available, and I was able to secure it within 15 seconds of seeing it on the website Stock alert. This is the absolute beast of the PC world and will last me for the next six years This is an update from 1-17/2021. I spoke There are only WHEA errors APIC ID 18 and 19, meaning one or more cores are faulty. A 3800 CL 14 processor can't run 3600 CL 16 RAM. The 3600 CL 16 crashes every single time it gets started My system takes more than 2 hours when running at ram speeds 2133/1066. I have to switch off the centralized power management, which defeats the This is a total disaster and a pity that a flagship 800$ CPU was defective at such a high rate not just for me but for everyone. I am returning it before my time is up and I will order a new one, or choose a different brand. The new chip looks promising and I hope it will do what it is supposed to. According to various forums, I, as well as other people, got a defective batch of chips. However, other users claim that the chips they received after RMA are without defect. As far as I am concerned, this should be the case. Having issue RMAing my CPU was a result of the tech support person saying it arrived with bent pins and could not be set, but they still issued me an RMA exchange in good faith. The AMD Texas bent my CPU because before they would even approve an RMA I had to take screenshots of the CPU chip embedded in my motherboard, took pictures of the pins and original packaging, and sent it back in the AMD box plus an Amazon brown box. Still, they gave The one I ordered was delivered on November 27.

This crown is for performance
5/5

The 18th day brought us to the end of the journey. Gigabyte X570 Ultra motherboard with latest bios update. If you install this on this motherboard make sure you have the latest software (Ryzen Master and Gigabyte utilities you use) installed before installing the latest bios. The Clock Tuner Ryzen (CTR) needs to be disabled and uninstalled as it is Neither I nor my friends know how I managed to score one. As soon as Amazon received the order, they sent it from Brazil. The delivery was slow and late, but they did it, so they deserve credit. Is the 6800XT better than the RX 6800? There has not been much luck with that. A RECENT UPDATE Compared to 2 memory sticks, we went with 4 memory sticks. It will be the same time. The number of gigabytes should be 8GBx4, not.

This CPU is the beast of the world
5/5

I like this threadripper, since it is a budget one. In order to get a hardware that can get to 5, I am using a PC with a CPU that measures A single thread at 1 GHz with proper cooling is of course needed. There is no guarantee that the speed will stay that fast, so don't expect it to run that fast for too long.

A gaming CPU that works best with AMD
5/5

This AMD CPU is the best for gaming right now, as well as a content creation machine with PCI Express The following products are in need of support. LATEST UPDATES It is a requirement to load the latest BIOS onto this motherboard before installing this CPU, since no motherboard I have seen supports it natively. It takes a lot to beat the Asus ROG x570 Crosshairs VIII Formula, which allows you to update the BIOS without installing a CPU, just a power supply. You should aim for an Asus X570 motherboard that supports the Asus Flashback feature. Furthermore, I installed AMD's Ryzen Master software to control minor auto-overclocking, which adjusts based on the temperature of the CPU. I highly recommend you buy a good AIO (All In One) liquid cooler as well. Kraken x63 or x73 is the best I've found and use in my system. Memory stick. The depth of Thousands of megahertz are more trouble than they're worth, in the opinion of most people. Make sure that DOCP is enabled in the BIOS so that the RAM's speed and timing can be set to the defaults.
