    Re: Whats your favorite piece of hardware? 2023/02/06 08:06:54 (permalink)
    Can't really pick one.....lol Best I can do is categories of my current favorites
     
    Video card) my MSI RTX 4090 MSRP card that's flashed BIOS to higher end model (because duh faster card = more beterrrrrr)
     
    Motherboard) my old ASUS X370 Crosshair Hero, was a nice ride and saw the board start with a Ryzen 7 1700 and ended with a Ryzen 9 5950X and almost everything in between, exceptional longevity for AM4 socket and even came with a NVMe slot
     
    Memory) hard to pinpoint but I'd have to say it's really a tossup between my previous TeamGroup 16GB 3200Mhz kit of DDR4 that was using Samsung B-die that could easily run up to 4400Mhz CL16 or this current kit of XPG Caster DDR5 6400 that I can run all the way up to 7600Mhz CL 36
     
    CPU) another hard one but if push came to shove of my currently active systems I'd probably pick my current 13700K. Runs daily at 5.5Ghz all P-core with an undervolt offset of -100mv landing it at 1.3v 
     
    PSU) my EVGA SuperNova 1000w, really solid PSU with near platinum levels of efficiency and with a relatively smaller footprint. It's been chugging along since 2017 without issue powering the latest and higher end hardware. EVGA chose wisely when choosing SuperFlower as their OEM for the G3 line of PSUs.

    Intel i9 14900K ...............................Ryzen 9 7950X3D
    MSI RTX 4090 Gaming Trio................ASRock Phantom RX 7900 XTX
    Samsung Odyssey G9.......................PiMax 5K Super/Meta Quest 3
    ASUS ROG Strix Z690-F Gaming........ASUS TUF Gaming X670E Plus WiFi
    64GB G.Skill Trident Z5 6800Mhz.......64GB Kingston Fury RGB 6000Mhz
    MSI MPG A1000G 1000w..................EVGA G3 SuperNova 1000w

    I cant pick just one either.
    I am liking my Tesla P100's I picked up on Ebay and my older Radeon VII for their FP64 double precision calculations. They do that quite well.
    The Asus Rampage and EVGA x299 boards with i9-7900x for their AVX512 instructions. Makes a big difference for what I do. Bought used on another forum.
    I have this Iogear all in one wireless keyboard with mouse built in. Makes it so easy to go room to room computer to computer and make changes.
    It has a scroll wheel, track-ball and right/left buttons and a decent keyboard. USB and works in all the BIOS I have.
     
    Thank god for Ebay and for sale sections on forums. Parts for pennies on the dollar. The Tesla P100's were 7000$ when they were new. Now 3.5 cents on the dollar.
    Heck I bet the sales tax  was almost 2x what you can pick one up for now.

    Just finish new build and first custom water cooled rig. EK Quantum Kinetic 240 FLT and their Velocity 2 full nickel block are some nice pieces of hardware.

    I guess if I was going to pick one piece of technology that would be my single hardware I would pick it would be my cell phone. While I only have an iPhone 12 Pro it's still amazing to be able to access information any while keeping in contact with friends and family as well as take pretty good photographs when I want to even if they are not as good as Delirious and his Canon R6 Mk II.

    Hah, I have to second that one. Peace of mind, convenience, and proper data protection that includes bit-rot prevention. 
     
    If talking strictly PC hardware... probably my EVGA 1080 Ti Hydrocopper. Has been run practically 24/7 for the last six years with every kind of load imaginable. Only an SC2 model but at stock volts it runs Kingpin 1080 Ti boost clocks, up to 2060Mhz rock stable. Some minor issues with the included block's port plugs corroding, but that's my only real complaint.

    hopefully I can get that out of my 3080 ti hydro.   She sure is pretty.    Synology has a solid OS.  I run plex on it every night and I sync all my files needed between two offices on it.   Love, love it.
