Re: New AMD Ryzen 3000 chips leaked

Anyone else having flashbacks of the Zalman chipset heatsinks? Especially the blue one, where you'd have to "comb" it over sometimes to fit in a graphics card. Good times... It was the first thing I thought of. :) The ol' NB-47. The NB-47 is small, would overheat with 15W, and would probably block ...

Or, go back to the heatpipe based passive coolers.

Re: Samsung 950 Pro 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD

To me it seems that it would become cost effective only in a high file usage scenario, otherwise the 850 Pro is better value for money. And I have an issue with the placement of the M.2 connector on mobos, it's too close to either the CPU or GPU, while already running hot. The 950 Pro has adequate t...

Re: Fractal Design Core 500 Mini-ITX Chassis

The top exhausts seem restrictive, would be nice to have it tested with Kraken X61 and with the restrictive grill cut.
Also, I doubt it's possible to mount both a X41 in the back and X61 top.

An overview of HBM

Article at bit-tech, I think it's worth reading. A new generation of aftermarket gfx coolers will be needed for cards with HBM. The GPU package becomes larger and the HBM is in it, so it doesn't need extra memory heatsinks (VRMs will still need). http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/memory/2015/05/19/an...
