      what cooler /liquid cooler would you recommend for a 3700x, for gaming,movie watching and Googling ?... is the wraith prism enought for 1080p, and its noise levels?

      Sir please make a video about UEFI 3 implementation , it's not allowing certain laptops to install windows 7 on complete uefi mode (we can use bios mode but can't use gpt partition) and there no CSM support on these laptops . There is problem with video(Intel onboard ) drivers that are messing with it . By this Microsoft and Intel forcing us either use wind 10 or stay in stone age . First check yourself with pure uefi 3 implemented laptop with no CSM support . Hurry because I heard Intel drooping bios support from 2020 .

    in school i like math. i hate doing class activity like puzzle or maze. then there's that one kid with the glasses who love doing puzzle. when i think of cpu designer i think who those kids with glasses who love doing puzzle. theyre probably sitting there rearranging transistor and pipping those interconnect street for most efficiency.

    currently running a FX-9590 /w 16G ram. I am thinking of waiting for the 3950X but it is really hard. I already have my next system mapped out - Ryzen 3900X OR 3950X
    GSKILL Trident Z Neo 64GB
    GIGABYTE AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD 1TB M.2 2280 PCI-Express 4.0 x4
    I can pull the trigger now but I am waiting for the 3950X to see if it better is ANY, way, shape or form to the 3900X.

    Well...well... you know what's funny? There's a tale that reminds me of how the CPU market progressed.
    "The Hare -INTEL- was soon far out of sight, and to make the Tortoise -AMD- feel very deeply how ridiculous it was for him to try a race with a Hare, he lay down beside the course to take a nap until the Tortoise -AMD- should catch up."

    I think somebody is oversleeping

    I've had a lot of friends scoff at me for using AMD, but I'm actually okay with it for now. I am running an AMD FX-8120 (circa 2011 lol), overclocked to 4ghz with 16gb ddr3-1600 and a gtx 1080, playing current gen games @ 1080p with around 50-60fps at max settings. I'm okay with this for now, and will be until i start dipping below the standard 30.

    `Great Video , Ive always been AMD. But while the video is very good it doesn't answer the most important question!!!!
    Do I buy the Ryzen 7 or Ryzen 9 ???? The price gap is pretty huge but the performance seems very similar , is the 9 worth it ????

    I upgraded to i9 9900kf recently and i dont regret it, i only had bad experience with AMD in gaming, so unless they are gonna be in good quality gaming experience fot atleast a few years over Intel.. im not gonna switch, it only makes me happy and hoping Intel will reduce prices. Im a Intel+Nvidia fan all the way

    I'm going ryzen 9 with msi z390 godlike motherboard, and some badass 3600mhz ram. If only 2080 cards would come down in price... in canada their around 1,500$ for anything decent. But, when summer comes back around and nvidia drops new gen hopefully 2080 drops in price a bit and I can have my beast pc

    My Threadripper 2990WX with 128GB ram works well for me. I can run Factorio in the background, have Lightroom open with a lot of photos, write some Scala code in IntelliJ and when I want t a break I just start Doom 2016 and it plays the same as on idle system.
