    Der8auer fixed it, all you need to do to get the Ryzen 7000 series CPU's at 70-75°C under full load is delid it :ROFLMAO:. You know, just the basic things every average consumer regularly does. https://youtu.be/y_jaS_FZcjI

    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    My wallet got stolen last weekend, which is annoying. They could have taken the 70euro that was in it for all I care, but all the hassle to get a new ID-card and drivers licence I really hate. First to the police station to get the right documents (for which you need an appointment, earliest one...

    Last TV show you saw?

    I like Star Wars and I do admit Disney is trying to expand too much. But I haven't seen any Star Wars movie or show yet I thought to be terrible. Even the animated series (which I only started watching after my kids started watching them and I liked what I saw), they add real nice background...

    Ownership Verified: Teslas everywhere ... But never a red one!

    Ok so I probably have seen a lot of "personalised" German license plates without realising it because they look the same. 😅 Damn apparently Belgium made 11milion euro in 2021 from selling personalised license plates. *LINK*

    Ownership Verified: Teslas everywhere ... But never a red one!

    Can you actually get personalised licence plates in Germany? Can't remember seeing one, or are the options so limited the "fun" ones just look like someone got lucky with the combination they got? In Belgium for 1000EUR you can get pretty much any plate with maximum 8 characters as long as it's...

    The Post Your Pets Thread

    We have two dog in/around the house here ('cause it wasn't busy enough already with kids 😅). A 4 year old white Swiss shepherd called Spot, we do get the occasional weird looks when calling a completely white dog "Spot". The kids got to choose the name and there favourite movie at the time was...

    One of the last updates Win11 installed somehow removed parts of microsoft visual C++. Couldn't uninstall it because windows didn't think it was installed and couldn't install it either because when trying to install windows thought it was already installed. Luckily microsoft was smart enough to...

    I flipping hate windows 11. I'll admit that it doesn't help that I'm the type of person who doesn't like things being changed solely for the sake of change or for esthetics. But Windows 11 is a good reminder why I pretty much skipped Windows 8. They wanted tot change so much that didn't really...

    My 9year old came home saying he wanted a chromebook 'cause they use them at school and he prefers it over the old laptop the kids get to use here (a 9year old Packard Bell running linux Mint 'cause it just isn't capable of running any recent version of Windows). So I went for the even cheaper...

    The last desktop I owned with more than a discrete GPU had a Radeon HD5850, so I can't say much about GPU manufacturers support :ROFLMAO: . I've build my current desktop about 1,5years ago when GPU prices were still mad, so I quickly decided I could live with an iGPU. I did however make sure my...

    Ownership Verified: My Land Rover Discovery 200tdi

    Apart from the repairs something else happened😅. With the constant 3steps forward, 2steps back (mostly because of screw ups by GDPO's) and not being able to drive 150km without needing the next repair the car was becoming more of a burden than something I could enjoy. So I've been playing around...

    Ownership Verified: My Land Rover Discovery 200tdi

    Over the last 3weeks I didn't have a lot of spare time, but considering that a lot has happened. First of all I finally tackled the rust spot at the rear, didn't have a load of time when doing it and couldn't really be bothered so I went for the "grinder and paint make me the welder I ain't"...

    [05x01] September 16th, 2022 - A Scandi Flick

    Found some time today to watch it, in short I would say it was good entertainment. But even as someone who doesn't really mind/looks for continuity errors and/or over scripted scenes in shows like this, I found there was too much of it. Off course much is scripted, fake and edited, just as in...

    Ownership Verified: So, I bought a Porsche.

    I've "reseated" nuts in plastic parts in the past by heating the nut and pushing the hot nut in the plastic part, that way melting the plastic to house the nut. It will also depend on the type of plastic (,how thick is it) and how well you can reach it, but if the bolt is still in it you could...

    At the height of my pc-craziness, must have been around 2008-2009, I had a Cooler Master Stacker, a huge full tower and still not big enough to house my dual loop watercooling, Core 2 Duo E8600 (overclocked to the point it was barely stable :ROFLMAO:), 2x Radeon HD4870 Crossfire and 4x WD...

    I don't mind RGB in general, it can indeed be tasteful. But the really important part is it CAN be tasteful. In laptops there aren't many things you can use RGB lighting on, so it gets over the top really fast. But I have to admit that in laptops too they are getting more customisable and some...

    And will probably be about as expensive as an EV sportscar and need about as much power as charging an EV sportscar 😅

    If Framework had a wider range of options to choose from and was available in Belgium, I would really consider one of those. But even if a could get one here, a thin and lite notebook with iGPU wouldn't cut it.

    And even without companies messing with the specifications it's hard enough when it comes to GPU's and CPU's in laptops since how well they'll perform depends largely on how much power and/or cooling the manufacturer decides to assign to said CPU or GPU. That's one of the reasons I have a more...
