  1. I think there is some confusion in the current discussion. There are two somewhat related, but yet different concepts: Having more power, and therefore more dynamic headroom, allows an amp to drive speakers (especially difficult speakers) to play dynamic music well (compared to lesser power amps) Different amps can sound different only because they don't have enough power and are clipping all the time. The way amps clip are different and this result in a difference in sound that is audible (and enjoyable to tube amp lovers) Your video described the first scenario, and I agr
  2. Damn, that Samsung 970 Evo 500GB looks like a really nice price. I would suggest one could do better on the ram for $10 more - Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB (8GBx2) 3200MHz DDR4 Desktop RAM Black $109. Motherboard choices depend heavily on feature sets - make sure it has all you needs
  3. This goes back to my question about consensus on clipping earlier. Surely the ASR crowd being measurement enthusiasts should be well placed to tell if their amps are clipping. It shouldn't come down to a question of how much power they need - they could determine that for themselves.
  4. Good one. I would like to know if there is a general consensus on the meaning of 'clipping'? Surely it can be readily measured and verified on a scope. Alternately one could check if an amp's soft clipping mechanism has been triggered.
  5. $219 is not a bad price for a Ryzen 5 2600 - you still get 6 cores and 12 threads for video editing. https://www.mwave.com.au/product/amd-ryzen-5-2600-6-core-socket-am4-34ghz-cpu-processor-wraith-stealth-cooler-ac12828 (Exercise caution when purchasing online, sometimes websites make mistakes in their product descriptions, I almost got caught recently. Always best practise to check the part number to be sure)
  6. @candyflip You could try this online tool to put together the parts to fit your budget. The tool could also highlight any known compatibility issues between chosen parts. https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/
  7. Hi @minute I think I've done it. Here is a screenshot when I ran Ryzen Master with my D.O.C.P. setting. The memory clock speed, fabric speed, and sub timings all seem to match the target profile. Can I take this to mean my overclock is successful? So far after a full day of use we observed no signs of instability so that is reassuring. We will increase the load over the week and see how it goes.
  8. Update. Spent the weekend putting together the new build and made several minor mistakes. Never mind, when power is on it work just fine. Firstly the bios is still the version shipped with the box, ver 1407 (I think released around April last year; the latest bios is over 3000!). Read outs seem normal, and the Rams freq was 2133 as expected. I switched on D.O.C.P. and it automatically upload the correct target profile of 3600, 16-16-16-36, and 1800 for the CPU. Saved and reboot and it POST ok. Strangely the Rams status freq still display as 2133; however other panels in the bios state the freq
  9. My current PC is a 13 years old machine that still runs well today. With my new build I thought about reusing the case and integrated PSU, but was worried that the power supply is operating on borrowed time. Couldn't bear the risk so I just buy a new case and separate PSU.
  10. Some helpful tips for a Ryzen 5 3600 new build for content creation. Note that it is a 2019 video so there are better choices of motherboard like B550 today.
  11. This is an open forum right, so I don't think it works that way. I think all positive and constructive posts will be appreciated.
  12. I assume by 'manual tuning path' you mean abandon the use of D.O.C.P 🙂 I will let you know how it goes when I get to that stage.
  13. Thanks, that is nice to know. I want to aim for 3600 that is why I paid the extra cost. I do know the performance gained is not much, but I get to brag about having a pair of vaunt 'Samsung b die' 😅😅😅 Good advice. I want the option for my son to try some machine learning so Nvidia is the preferred choice. Hoping hard for a cheap 3080 by the next Black Friday sale 😄
  14. Appreciate your comments. Unfortunately I bought the CPU before they release the 5600X; it also requires a $200 premium. I have read bios update issues with this Asus X570 MB so am dreading it. I will definitely flash it with the latest bios and fingers crossed.
  15. About to start a new build soon with my son, so appreciate the offer here. Mainly for gaming, studies and some general use. Parts: Ryzen 5 3600 ASUS TUF X570 Gaming Plus Wi-Fi GSkill Ripjaws V F4-3600C16D-16GVK WD Blue SN550 1TB Deepcool Gammaxx 400 V2 Li Lancool II Mesh RGB Corsair RM750x I purchased the parts over a number of months and was constrained by price and availability - I couldn't always get the best deals and parts are not optimal for future proofing. They would do for now. I am reusing a 1 Series GPU for n
