    Prototype Project Orthrus - Smallest SLI mATX case (V2)

    Yeah this is the challenge right now guys. Since the project has gone on hiatus, a lot of things have changed. Is there enough interest still in the case considering SLI is no longer possible ? Even the 2000 series cards would not theoretically be supported in this case as designing a new long...

    Memory ASRock DeskMini X300 - RAM question

    I guess we'll have to wait for some 6000 series APU's for improved iGPU performance. Can't wait !

    Looks like the 5700G isn't really 10% faster in GPU bound workloads:

    Motherboard ASRock X370 Gaming-ITX/ac and AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac

    5700G works on 1.60 bios. I've updated to 1.70 as thats the official firmware level that supports 5k CPU's. I must say the X300 with the 5700G is excellent. Paird with that 3800 RAM from Corsair im able to push the sticks to 4000 at 3800 timings and get a 1:1 fabric with the CPU & Mem. Excellent...

    @EUA - I've already confirmed the 5600G works on 1.60 bios. Later today im getting a 5700G and I'll confirm if that works on 1.60 bios as well. And for the X300 desk mini bios make sure you're using bios from here: https://www.asrock.com/nettop/AMD/DeskMini%20X300%20Series/index.asp#BIOS

    @HydrAxx747 - nice heatsinks and you got a steal on the ram sticks. I also bought 4 and I have 2 sitting in my drawer waiting for the next project :) I have other machines that could use them but none of them support these speeds. I also have a 5700G coming to see if there's a bigger difference...

    Im using the or 3800MHz CL18. But you can easily run it at 4000MHz CL18. The 4000 kit wasn't available when I was looking to buy. And from my experience I can tell you the extra $200 isnt worth it to go to 4000 kit, as the 3800 kit can run at 4000 without issues. (at least my kit did)

    News PREBUILT: Zotac Launches 8.3L Magnus One Microtower

    No. I tried editing the bios but couldn't get an 11th gen to boot. The best CPU you can get for the Magnus is 10600 (non-K) version. It will be the best balance of performance / cooling (noise)

    Memory ASRock DeskMini X300 - RAM question

    Yep. And like @gazpl said, I got my 5600G by purchasing a prebuilt HP system with a 3070. So its not a pre-release chip or anything like that. Its a proper retail chip. Only negative being software like Ryzen Master doesn't work with it yet. I had to update firmware to 1.60 for it to work on the...

    I bought this kit: And I'm running it at 4000 MHz with a 5600G. Works flawlessly and it makes a huge difference to performance in 3D over 2666 MHz or even 3200 MHz sticks: https://ibb.co/ZJns0JC

    News PREBUILT: Zotac Launches 8.3L Magnus One Microtower

    @Revenant Here are a few tests I ran on the setup with various CPUs and coolers. Im still waiting on the 11400 which should arrive next week. It will be interesting to see if there is a performance boost without much added noise + power, especially that the 10600 runs memory at 2666, 10700 at...
