Shameless plug.



Atomicans into racing games and cars head that a way.


Binky has been one of our favourites to keep track of too :)

Finished Resident Evil 7 a couple weeks ago. Enjoyed it. I only got into RE from about 4 or 5 onwards. 7 apparently goes back to RE's original game play/story style roots.

If the room wasn't thick with blood or some disgusting substance, it was definitely thick with the suspense of a horror game/movie. Good franchise, and game.


I'm now well into Mass Effect Andromeda. I'm not so critical about games I just sit back and enjoy them for what they are. So all the complaints about mostly minor things I don't understand, or care to. Been having a blast with (in!) Andromeda. Going to keep me entertained for a good while longer yet I suspect.

Going the tech powers route. Little turret, fireballs and shield steal for combo trigger is fun.

On the trail of the big baddie. But first I need to explore every inch of this planet and do every single side mission I find lol

Nice gamble! What speed ram u running it with/at?


I tried so hard to get sub 10s lol Definitely the RAM at regular 2400MHz speeds wasn't helping me.

Nice one Sora. Yeah they need proper cooling to explore their potential fully.


What temps you currently getting?

vcore you can safely go up to 1.45v according to AMD people. You'll need to to get 4GHz+

I think 1.4125v was the sweet spot on mine for around 3.9GHz stable.


Pushing to 4.25GHz the one I tested started auto shutting down around the 90C point (after adjusting for +20C readings AMD admitted to on X models. Yes it was reading 110C lol). Not as good in that respect as Intel which'll let you hit 100C.

Or better yet disable SMT. Something many tests have shown to work better with (because they don't know how to handle SMT properly, like hyper threading, which is the same but I understand implemented differently).


I can't do any more benches, had to hand the system back. A reviewers lament.


Was fun while I had it.


Look forward to seeing what you can cook up Sora! Especially with the higher rated RAM.

These CPUs really do need water cooling though. The air HSF I had couldn't really cope with the higher OCs with all cores enabled. Had to disable 6 as seen in my previous posts so I could push it to 4.25GHz to keep temps in check.

AMDs TDP does not equal Intel TDP ratings. Ryzen pulls as much as Broadwell-E at full tilt. Needs the cooling to match really.
