  • South bridge chip is responsible for communication and other major I/O lines, PCI mainline, USB, LAN, ATA, SATA, Audio controller, keyboard controller and so on are relatively stable, so different versions of motherboards may have the same South bridge chip, but the main chip is the north bridge chip.
  • The m. 2 port only supports pci-e SSD types. If you are using i7 series processors, do not use REG ECC at The same time as they are incompatible with each other.Note: this plane requires a strong power supply.Please make sure your power supply is adequate to support this plane.(at least 500w brand power supply).
  • Some motherboards may have little scratches or thermal paste or finger print on the metal bracket or other metal parts, this is normal, they could be caused in assembly at workshop or during testing. It does not mean they are refurbished, Our store motherboards are full new as we stated.On the basis of not bringing function changes to the motherboard, the factory would probably improve the motherboard external design, which would probably lead to some appearance difference between batches, pleas

Apparently Amazon's chat-based customer support likes to play the same agent shuffle that most telephone CS services do. Anyway, below is the transcript of my conversation with them. I don't know if they received any stock initially, but as of now it seems we're stuck waiting for them to receive stock from Intel.

Okay I just got off with amazon support. I'm being told December 7th!!!! Here are the chat logs... I changed the customer support peoples names to "Amazon". Amazon really needs to step up their s**t

Amazon:Hello, my name is Amazon. I'm here to help you today.

Me:Thanks please help

Amazon:I see that the item is currently not in stock with us.And so a delivery date can not be given.

Me:So you cant give me any info on something I PRE ORDERED 20 DAYS AGO

Amazon:Our inventory team is in contact with the manufacturer and they are trying to acquire the product.
As soon as it will be done you will receive it.

Me:That could be months
I "PRE-ORDERED" the item to get it when it came out 7 days ago.... At least newegg gives info on when they are receiving shipments of it...

Amazon:I apologized for this. And I understanding your frustration . It is available with a third party seller and if you want you can place an order with the seller.

Valid concerns but trust me it’s a breeze to do. Given how hot your CPU gets you will benefit from a proper delid. Granted though you are still within safe temps. The temps are highish but they aren’t abnormal compared to most others. Higher temps do lessen the life of the CPU but we are talking a very small time span compared to the market life of the chip. I’d say you and 99% of all PC builders will have build a second or even third computer before silicone degradation even reaches minimal levels. If that makes sense. Yeah high temps kill it but it’s like saying the three cigarettes you smoked in high school took two minutes off your life when you live to be a hundred anyway. Analogy might be to the extreme but I wouldn’t worry about it.

With that said here’s some links that will help you.

Delid tool and re attachment tool:

Plastic razor blades to remove stock glue (what you mentioned not knowing what to do with, yes remove it the easiest way I’ve done it was using these and a small amount of isopropyl alcohol):

Silicone “glue” for IHS re attachment. To be honest the very first delid I did was a 3570k using wood a vice and a hammer and I didn’t reglue it. It’s still alive too. I would personally just use a very small amount on the four corners. Just enough to stick. You are correct in your concern about the stock glue causing the IHS to not make perfect contact with the die. Remove the stock crap and use minimal amount of this and it will be a non concern:

Lastly, your liquid metal for the die to IHS and your TIM for the IHS to Kraken. You can use any but it’s probably safe to say Grizzly is currently the go to stuff:

All in all it’s easy and it’s worth it. If you have any questions whatsoever message me or reply here. There are some good videos of walkthroughs (I think one really good one is on rockitcool’s website but I’m not sure). I can find them for you but tomorrow as I’m currently in bed and using a half open eye lid to write this.

u/LennytheGoodson · 1 pointr/intel

That's the thing. My case is a mid-tower and only allows for 161mm of clearance. And so far, I've found a lot of great CPU coolers, some of which look good too (like the ones you just linked), but they don't fit in my NZXT S430 Elite :/ I've found it incredibly hard to find the right CPU cooler. I want my build to look nice, since the S340 Elite has a side window of tempered glass. This one seems like a good product, but again, it's made by Noctua and (in my opinion, at least) looks like complete trash. The colour they use for their fans is just so mediocre-looking... and just ugly in general:

I chose the Black and Red version of the S340 Elite, so I'm going for that same colour combination for my components, and having a big light brown metal thing inside would just look really crappy. Also, how many millimetres would you recommend for a fan if the clearance is 161mm ? Does the 161mm take into account the minimum amount of space you would obviously want to have between the top of your cooler, and the case window ? I would certainly not want the cooler to come in contact with the tempered glass! To rest easy (and if it's possible), I'd like to have a reasonable amount of free space between the cooler and the tempered glass.

u/dopef123 · 2 pointsr/intel

Eh, it's more like they gave you a cheap cooler. It's probably ok, but as you can see you're hitting the max temps in some situations (100C).

Depends on what you want to spend really. Noctua is considered the best for air coolers.

This is like the most popular noctua model I think:

And then there are all in one (AIO) water coolers for $100 (but noctua is on par with them and beats many of them). Here is the one I have for my 9900k:

There are definitely cheaper options that should be solid especially if you're not going to be pushing an overclock and all that. I'm not an expert on coolers but if you search 'cpu cooler 9700k' on /r/buildapc you can probably find a lot of good recommendations.

> $222

Ryzen 2600:

> $134.99

And a direct comparison review:

1080p: 145 FPS average overall for the i5, 133 FPS average overall for the 2600 stock, and 150 FPS average overall for the 2600 OC'ed. 1440p has smaller FPS differences.

A more direct price comparison of the 2600:

> i3-9100, 4C/4T

> $129.99

> i3-6100, 2C/4T

> $129.99

I specifically mentioned about the low/midrange market that Intel has a problem in. Is it worth paying nearly double for the i5 over the 2600 when that money could go into the GPU, SSD, RAM, or better CPU cooler?

EDIT: For the 3600:

> Direct competition for the R5 3600 should come from Intel's Core i5-9600 which is listed at $213, but we don’t have that part on hand and it doesn’t appear to be on sale either, so the more expensive 9600K will have to do. It costs $255 and doesn’t include a box cooler, so it's not the exact match we were going for, but it will be interesting to see how they stack in terms of raw power.

> The Ryzen 5 3600 comes out significantly more affordable at just $1.53 per frame as it delivers a similar level of performance, but costs almost $100 less. This makes the R5 3600 better value than the 2600X at its current $195 asking price, though it is 18% more costly than the vanilla R5 2600. Even so given the efficiency improvement and the absolutely monstrous uplift in productivity performance, we feel it’s going to be easy to justify the small price premium.

> The Intel Core i5 was a little faster in a few of the games tested, but the R5 3600 was miles faster where you’ll notice it. So this one's pretty cut and dry unless Intel decides to cut pricing heavily.

11 days after the review, the price of the i5 9600 only dropped by $7:

Thermalright Le Grande Macho RT. It's quieter, slightly smaller footprint, and cools better than the popular Noctua NH-D15 and Dark Rock Pro 4 you will likely get many recommendations for.

Runs 79.99 on Amazon:

Another option that will work excellent though not quite as good if you don't want to spend as much is the Scythe Fuma 2: ($59.99)

I have a preorder with Amazon US and was hoping to snipe one here in Japan this weekend since it doesn't look good from Amazon. I should have preodered here too, but the original estimation was Oct. 27 and I didn't want to wait... lol.

For online ordering in Japan (Thought I would toss this out there): shows instock tomorrow (Nov 2 @ 11am) has a message about honouring preorders first etc. removed the listing completely sometime yesterday removed listing a while back, but it was here ( I have it saved in my wish list ha.

Not sure if you guys/gals know of any other sites/stores. I really don't feel like spending the day tomorrow roaming around Tokyo trying to hunt down a single unit. Ugh.

u/INI_Fourzero · 1 pointr/intel

Kryonaut, Gelid Extreme and MX-4 are all good. Kryonaut is the best one imo (12,5 W/mk, that's thermal conductivity - not to be mistaken with the paste being conductive - it's not) compared to 8.5 on Gelix and MX-4. I also like how easy it is to spread around

Liquid Metal is conductive (Conductonaut). Here's a good video of doing the whole thing (especially the tape part so you don't have to deal with cleaning spillage)

u/ruinedxistenz · 2 pointsr/intel

Thermalright Le Grande Macho RT. Best air cooler you can buy, better than many AIOs:

Le Grand Macho RT (with fan TY-147B)

u/Hallorannn · 1 pointr/intel

I would wait a bit longer and save up for the i7. More and more games are going to utilise the multi-cores, hopefully, and they'll definitely come in handy when streaming as well (OBS). Also, a good air cooler is very affordable, like the popular Hyper 212 EVO, to something that performs very well even under load, the Silverstone A R07, but can range to higher prices, like the Phanteks or Noctua. My advice would be to wait a while, then grab the i7 6700k along with the Silverstone AR07 (Best performance per dollar under $50, losing out only to the $50-60 Mugen Scythe 4) T

u/rationis · 4 pointsr/intel

Ah, I've been looking at power consumption based off of price/perf since Ryzen doesn't compete core for core, but rather price.

>Considering the 7820X is more power efficient than the 1800X, is considerably faster, and has a much higher overclocking headroom, the ~20% price premium isn't bad at all.

However this is still not true. According to the site you've been referencing, the 7820X used 20.4% more power to deliver 5.6% more performance than the 1800X in C15. So the 7820X used .134W per point and the 1800X used only .117W per point. So the 1800X is 14.5% more power efficient than the 7820X in that test.

The 1800X's official MSRP is $469, which makes the 7820K about 28% more expensive, not 20%. However, if you wanted to buy right now, the 1800X can be had for $420. You also cannot disregard the rather hefty premium X299 demands over the AM4 platform.

u/randobilau · 1 pointr/intel

Second his suggestion, it is the best deal on a 135W cooler at the moment. I dug around for alternatives and there's pretty much nothing. The only thing that comes close is the Raijintek Aidos but it's 92mm and not quite as effective. It is a good alternative if you have a small case, it's like a CM Hyper T2 clone:

Went from a 6700k @ 4.6 to the 9700k @ 5.0 all core, My sample isn't quite as good as others and needs right around 1.312V to get 5.0 all core from the stock 4.6. Games feel a smoother than than 6700k but I have no objective data to backup that claim. I carried my DDR4 3000 over from skylake and use a 1080 ti as well.

I'm using a Le Grand Macho RT air cooler and temps when gaming are very reasonable, 40-60s depending on the load. Stress tests (XTU, Prime95 Blend, Cinebench, etc.) can vary from high 70s to high 90s depending on which test it is, though I do run my fans at lower RPMs for less noise, this is at 1.312V. This is with the z370 taichi from asrock in a Fractal Design Define S with 2x 140 Noctua in the front and a stock 140 case fan in the rear, RPMs usually around 700-800 depending on temps.

A big RAD or custom loop will problem get you better temps but I have zero desire to mess with water cooling at all. Honestly I might still to try and pickup a 9900k and leave it at or neat stock and rock it for the foreseeable future.

u/In-dub-it-a-bly · 1 pointr/intel

This is the cpu cooler I will use. Should help cool the VRM's a little.
The Pro version has a 4-pin cpu fan. Regular version only has a 3-pin cpu fan.

u/Thatonesillyfucker · 5 pointsr/intel

If the leaks are anything to go by (and the numbers were either surprisingly close or totally accurate for the top 3 CPUs in the stack), aren't the 4c/8t CPUs going to have even lower clocks and power draw? I don't remember seeing any rumour for them pushing even 4GHz, but it could all be complete garbage for all I know, since it makes sense to be able to have higher clocks with less cores like Intel does.

Edit: Oh yeah, check this description out: "Push the envelope with 8 processor cores, 16 threads, and the highest clock rates you can get on the advanced Socket AM4 platform."

My first PC build has been an absolute nightmare, but finally at the end of the journey, the icing on the cake is that the new wireless card isn't working or even showing up as even plugged in on the BIOS motherboard display screen

Here is the card: Intel wireless AC 9260 2230 card

Here is my motherboard: MSI Z390-A PRO

This motherboard has a wireless dedicated M.2 slot on it that supports CNVI IEEE 802.11 AC WAVE2. This is where the card has been put in, with the antennas attached.

I'm running windows 10 if that is relevant, but I'm not sure if it is because even the BIOS can't pick up the card.

Honestly, just find a CPU that can manage at least 64 PCIe lanes, and get yourself some of these: or something similar. PCIe is a network, not a bus system, so this is pretty much plug and play, this works like a router/switch to split the x16 bandwidth to 2 x8 devices. Get 4 of those, and a motherboard/cpu combo that has 4 PCIe Gen 3 x16 slots and you're golden. No special software needed.

The only consumer level motherboard/cpu I can find is threadripper based:

Someone in S.korea asked Intel official and They said that only 100 retail boxes of Coffelake was released at S.Korea and We'll get enough supplies By 2017 December or 2018 January.

Due to unavailability in S.Korea, 8700K's price is skyrocketing toward 430~600 USD. What's making worse is that retailer in S.Korea is selling them only by expensive combo bundle.

I think, at this point, It's tough to get one in S.Korea. If you can use freight forwarder in Japan, You should try Amazon japan pre-order at below link(You have to use freight forwarder because they don't ship directly to S.Korea).

As much as I thought this launch was bad by Intel and reviews didn't impress me, you're full of shit my dude. First of all LDLC, just like Maté (same owner IIRC) have always been one of if not the worst place to purchase because of their inflated prices. The 1/1/2019 date is obviously a placeholder.

Secondly, oh look the 9900k on It's not currently being sold by them though.
