Might get better with some BIOS updates on the way.
I'm going to get a 1700 when Asus get their head out of their rear end and make an itx board.

I wonder what happened to Papst, they were great quiet fans at one point. I remember seeing the fan blades with tiny weights on, to balance them.

Looks like they only still do industrial and 120mm fans now?

Old housemate of mine used to complain the neighbours hoovered at night.
It was my Delta fan at >2000RPM. I just got a massive pang of nostalgia for that XP-M.

They still make a lot of stuff, but from what I read their 'silent' sleeve-bearing stuff was matched/eclipsed years ago by the likes of Noctua or Scythes for half the price.
Still make killer ball bearing stuff that will run not-so-silent 24/7 until forever, if you don't mind 40$ for a 120mm casefan that comes with 4" of cable in a shabby brown box.
It's for German super grognards only now

I remember having all Papst fans, and still hearing bearing "tick"

And buying a cheap Orange Zalman fan and being absolutely "WTF" as it was quieter. They are / were killer well built though (Papst).

I think the horror of running Delta fans made me go in the opposite way totally and wanting silence. But I weirdly miss that noisy XP-M with a Delta on it.

Are Biostar no good then? I'd never heard of them until Ryzen.

I looked around for motherboard failure rates, but couldn't find anything for them.
I know they were regarded pretty badly at one point. Maybe that's changed? I don't know.

I have pump 240 CPU 140 GPU res. The temps are basically the same as what I was getting with the nh-u12s so it's probably just a lovely chip. The GPU runs super cool so at least that is working

Also that was prime95 with avx on small FFTs or something

If you remove the block, how's the thermal paste being distributed around on the top of the CPU? Is the base of the CPU block good and flat?

If he's got custom WC loops I assume he knows how to put thermal paste on. Better to be safe I suppose.

It's just to find if the paste is squished evenly, showing the contacts good, or not.

E - it was hot with the Noctua too wasn't it.

Best chemical I found was Akasa Tim clean. It just wipes the paste right off.

To be fair, it's good advice for anyone else with that board and this problem.

Nah, all you need is 99% isopropyl, or whatever is the highest-test stuff you can get.

I don't remember what paste I was using, but iso wouldn't easily shift it. The Akasa stuff was effective.

Hah no! It was EdEddnEddy being snarked at for mentioning a potential fix to that guys problem.

I like AMD too but haven't used them for a long time. But the 1700 is interesting me. 

But I'll wait for a respin and Asus ITX.

E- I'm wondering now if the respin isn't going to happen until Ryzen+.

What I'd really like is to get the ultimate 6c+ chip for consistent frametime. I wonder if the 6c skylake chips will change things there.

(I have a 6600k at 4.5 ATM and kind of wish I'd gone 5820k instead now.)

I'm not convinced an entirely new basic architecture is required all that often, unless it's fubar to start with, like BD, if they have r+d money.

We'll see, but it stagnating is a concern.

Yes. I think they can get by for a few years, by then ditching gloflo is a great opportunity.

Intel's ticks have been progressively more boring, perhaps as the performance difference grew. We'll see if that continues.

This is all about economies of scale. What's the savings from removing a few extra discretes and side-chips in mass-production quantities? Not much. How much does it cost to set up the pick-and-place machine for new boards, and track an entire other second lineup? At least some. How many are they going to sell? Well, either very few, or their entire stock - in which case you're now sold out for months until you can ramp production (by which time it may well be over).

I'm sure you can see why they aren't jumping all over that.

Necro quoting, with an interesting link that needs salt.
