With their combination of excellent (for their class) performance and extremely reasonable asking prices the Ryzen 5 series is a home-run for AMD. So much so that recommending a slightly cheaper Intel i3-7350K or even a similarly priced Intel i5-7500K is bloody difficult. But don't just take our word for it, instead let's break it down so you can see where we are coming from and if you agree or not.

AMD Ryzen 5 series: The Undisputed Kings of Value

Repair Guides DIY / Amd 2xx and 69xx black screen in windows
« on: August 13, 2017, 11:27:35 AM »
Noticed for some time now many Amd cards mobile and desktop have stopped working after any drivers are installed.

Once drivers install the screen goes black and never comes back. When you force reboot you see video till the Windows login screen appears which just shows up black.

Just wanted to know if anyone has found any solutions to this?


Buddy of mine Jimmy from the FSF has had a loaner rig for years now made from the broken dreams of all our local friend's systems.

I ended up needing my HD 290X back for an upcoming video so told him its time to upgrade.

So that's what we did.


Ryzen R5 1600x
8GB DDR4 2400 Gskill Ripjaws
MSI GTX 1070 Armor 8GB
Asus Prime X370-PRO
Coolermaster MSI Modmaster Case
Hydro Series H60

Used from old rig
OCZ 1000 Watt PSU
2TB Seagate SSHD
275GB Crucial MX300 SSD

Rig turned out not half bad and for once Jimmy has one of the nicest rigs of the whole gaming group so good on him.

Ryzen is a lot of fun and simple to build with, reminds me of building with almost all AMD as the Corsair cooler mounts to the stock AMD socket mounts.

Been loving season 3 thus far but came across some remixes that are great for fans of the show, check them out,

PS the Pickle Rick Rat battle is the most epic scene in 2017 TV :P

Tons of family over and then.... RYZEN BUILD TIME!!!.
Should I build my rig into a test bench or into a case?

What's everyone else up to?

Real Hardware Reviews / Galaxy A5 (2017) the best mid-range phone

Looking for a new phone make sure to check out Davide and Johns(Soullessone21's) newest review

"It seems every day now a new phone is released and with that many times value phones are forgotten even on launch day. This could not be more true than with the Galaxy A5 2017 from Samsung. This Value class phone packs some great features and is available throughout Canada and the USA at $0 with a contract unlike the more expensive Galaxy S series."

Real Hardware Reviews / The Impact of Mixing RAM Speeds
« on: July 28, 2017, 09:05:08 AM »
On the Bench today GaK_45 takes a look at the impact of mixing ram speeds

So is mixing and matching DDR4 RAM a ‘good idea’? Well that depends on how you define ‘good’. Is it an optimal solution? No. Will it work… probably yes. Will it be a simple endeavor, one that is as easy as using four paired sticks of RAM? No. It’s not impossible but you will have to be proactive and take steps to ensure that they work

Those GPU's showed up last week their from a few customers of mine

First mining rig I made that is fully up and going
Worked well even though sadly we got 4 bad risers in that order :(

The rig running

Will have 2 or 3 really different ones coming up does anyone want build logs or videos?

Also building my own custom miner shortly for a super low cost and low wattage miner

PS when building these rigs I have seen some very odd BTC Voodoo

When you start to build lots of these rigs some of the strangest things will happen such as risers that short out some psu's where they work great on others or systems that will only output on a different gpu every time you reboot :P
