To sell boards...

Even though EVGA is the darling of the media, I'm done with them. They totally hid the fact that their RTX 2080 Ti's had massive gaps between the silicon and the cold plate and that they were relying entirely on thermal paste to conduct heat. Talk about a massive engineering blunder and the media were complicit in keeping it secret.

I see so many X570 builds with like one PCI-E drive that doesn't even use the 4.0 speeds, one video card, and nothing else connected. You guys have no clue what you're buying.

Now AMD just needs to release a Ryzen 5100 OC Edition clocked at 500mhz so "enthusiasts" can extract a 1000% overclock...


Seriously though is there a point where it's normal to lose your enthusiasm for OCing, or is it just me? I've been at it since that meant flipping jumpers on the motherboard, now with Turbos working so well, I've just lost my passion for it. Now I just go for power optimization, but once I get my new motherboard in, I probably will just let the Turbo handle everything.
