    Default Eteknix - LOL

    I used to hold Eteknix in high consideration, but just look at this guys trying to justify their own recommendation of another junky CoolerMaster unit:

    Sad. Just sad

    its trash, but yeih...its inside spec

    They're only inside some spec, certainly not the full ATX 2.4 spec.

    But eTeknix has never been an interesting or good site. So they only prove it again.

    Just... ugh, I'm one of the regulars on the /r/buildapc discord, if someone came into chat with those builds there would be lots of laughing on several external servers, NVMe drive is pointless, faster RAM is really appreciated on Ryzen and APUs, on a Ryzen APU? It's invaluable, the 8GB set is also a single stick, so you don't get dual channel..., 16GB RAM on the $500 US pricing is entirely pointless... ugh...

    I never understand why reviewers use seamingly the shittiest PSUs around, a while back Linus was recommending the B3 for example (This was well after Aris reviewed it and found the OPP flaw)...

    Because they donĀ“t care, they just put whatever the vendors pay them to put.

    RAM speed (and specially dual channel) matters a lot with Ryzen APUs.

    They have direct influence on the performace of the IGP, take a look:

    Dual channel & high speed RAM is the only way to beat Intel configurations with GT1030! Otherwise the performance will be really poor.

    Yep, RAM Speed is totally underrated these days because we are talking about 8 cores.

    And I'm not in the mood to calculate the bandwith per core right now. But I'd suspect that the Bandwith per Core and MHz is at an alltime low right now...


    Anyway:
    Sponsored Content maybe?
    The point with the SSD is a good one.
    I'd rather have a 2.5" S-ATA SSD with a 450W Bitfenix Formula than a Tacens/MS-Tech/Ultron with an NVME SSD...

    That's what I was saying, the single 8GB stick was a pretty bad idea and the 16GB kit wasn't a great idea either as you really don't need 16GB with the APUs... 2x4GB on a board with 4 DIMM slots would be your best option as a mix of current performance and future upgrades.

    Ah! Sorry, I didn't understand well. My fault
