new mb chipset with lower power use wonder how much difference it makes as some reviews have showed amd having higher idle power use

2200G 2400G review



looks like they oc to 3.9GHz ok at which point 2200G is a tad slower than the 1200 and 2400G is a bit slower than the 1500x

igp performance is below the nvidia 1030gt in most games but not all


2200G $139au

2400G $235au


for its price the 2200G does fairly well once overclocked assuming your happy to game at 720p


Overclocking with AMD's Ryzen Master utility is simple. The execution cores responded readily to our efforts, and the Ryzen 5 2400G floated up to 4 GHz with a 1.4V vCore setting. We also adjusted the VDDCR SoC voltage, which is a single rail that feeds the uncore and graphics domains, to 1.25V. That allowed us to dial in an easy 1555 MHz graphics clock rate and push the memory up to DDR4-3200 with 14-14-14-34 timings.

A Noctua NH-U12S SE-AM4 cooler helped us circumvent thermal challenges (we measured 75°C under the AIDA CPU/GPU stress test).


unfortunately the people looking to get a cheap cpu\igp like this probably wont be looking to spend the extra cash on expensive ram and cooling so in a typical usage scenario it will be much slower

so what will the hot and cold side of the peltier be in contact with exactly?

are you talking about sitting the cold side of the tec against the rad fins blocking some of the airflow?


if you had a second aio on the hot side of the tec and the cold side of the tec on the res then maybe it would drop loop temps by a c or two but then so might just running the rad from that second aio in the loop


there has been loops in the past that had tec strapped to waterblocks acting as a heat exchanger  being the only thing cooling the primary loop while a second loop had all the rads on the hot side of the tec

with enough tech and high power consumption they could drop temps rather low but without control they could freeze the loop at idle or get to hot under load


there is some interesting info here although old it was a forum section dedicated to tec

We use to have quite the community here back in 2003\4 with some cool rigs
