Topic: Are my components running to hot???   Go to last post

On Idle, My AMD FX-6300 runs at about 40 degrees Cecilius and 65 while running something like Planetside 2. My Nvidia 650 ti BOOST runs at about 30C on idle and 65 running something like Planetside 2. Though only about 40 on something like tf2. Are these temps too hot?


Topic: Enhanced Hyper-Flow Bearing" fans are sleeve bearing fans.   Go to last post

Long post, TL;DR at the end.

Recently I was comparing cpu coolers and wanted to know what kind of bearing one of the Thermalright fans had in it. No problem I thought, I'll just look it up on the manufacturer website. Thermalright's website listed the fan as having an "enhanced hyper flow bearing." Okay, that's obviously a marketing name, also a very stupid one, but on topic, what does it actually mean?

Here's where I ran into problems. Thermalright doesn't say what kind of bearing this actually is and the only thing a google search turns up is two SPCR forum posts which contradict each other. Importantly, neither author wrote any sort of explanation or had any sort of credibility. Asking on r/buildapc netted me one response which stated that it was a fluid bearing based on one of the aforementioned SPCR forum posts. Uh huh.

It's an overview & average of 18 launch reviews for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (with appr. 1560 single benchmarks).

Only counted average frame rates at the Full HD (1080p) resolution.

There are many launch reviews who's using factory overclocked cards for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the Radeon RX 590. All following values with an asterisk (*) comes from factory overclocked cards.

There are even reviews out there who forget to mention the use of factory overclocked cards in their benchmark diagrams (means triple check everything to be sure).

For the average of all reviews the factory overclocked cards was normalized to the reference clocks (more on the performance effect of factory overclocked cards for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti here).

The average performance is weighted in favor of these reviews using reference clocks.

Topic: Why this hate towards the ARM ISA?   Go to last post

I have been closely following the evolution of ARM since it was only 32 bits, and I find fascinating the hate towards this architecture from some x86 fans. ARM has replaced MIPS or SPARC on several known projects and no one complains, but when one mentions the possibility of x86 being replaced by ARM...

First of all, no one is here saying you would stop using x86. If the software or hardware you use only exists for x86 obviously you have to continue using x86. What I am asking here is why some x86 fans hate the ARM ISA and make false claims about the ARM ISA or about ARM in general. I give some examples of false arguments next.

Years ago, the main false argument people was giving to me was "ARM cannot scale up. ARM is only for phones". It was an absurd argument, because nothing in the ARM ISA prohibits engineers to scale up designs above 2W.

When the first 100W ARM SoCs started to appear the argument changed to "ARM lacks X", where X could be some feature such as InfiniBand, confounding the features available on a proof-of-concept chip or on some developers-only chip, with the ARM ISA.
