4 038 görünümler 204 202

We're live overclocking the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU with liquid nitrogen, pushing it to 5GHz and beyond. Today, we'll find out what would have happened if the completely outrageous rumors were right. Support our streams via the store!
We will read all Superchats during the stream, but PLEASE NOTE THAT WE RUN ON A DELAY. Due to the volume of superchats and active nature of the stream, we read them on about a 30-60 minute delay.
You can find the new toolkit here:

    Steve you are far too distracted by the 'chat' or 'super-chat' -- listening repeatedly to the same things getting read out is like having 'ads' in the video. Except worse; because these ads can 't be skipped and constantly invade the stream. By the 4th time I can feel myself taking a deep breath -- by the 6/7th "interruption" I am beginning to switch off and lose interest in the stream. I have to force myself to re-engage when the ads are over. -- I mean honestly c'mon, one of the fist "superchats" asked the CPU model when it's in the title! Other chat participants also answered the question for him 3 or 4 times but you also still had to answer it again too. Sorry but that is NOT adding to the depth/knowledge or interest of the stream -- Instead i found those bits excruciatingly boring.

      - Z390 boards are cheaper than X570 ones and there's no chipset fan on most of them. - Having hardware mitigations against Spectre, Meltdown, etc. (still better than having no such thing) doesn't make you immune to being hacked and compromised. Intel can fix these in later product releases. I am willing to bet that many AMD users use Windows, which is still more vulnerable than MacOS and Linux, but say nothing about that lol - Intel still beats AMD in pure gaming. I was disappointed in that one as I was hoping that AMD's Ryzen 3rd-gen would match or beat Intel in that regard.

    They get close to 0k using FREAKING LASER BEAMS! But seriously, the lasers are calibrated to be a a certain wave length ( or frequency I forget) so that they bump into molecules and slow them down. Once they’re slow enough laser does not interact with the molecules so they do not get pushed in the opposite direction. The terminology I used may not be correct but the concept is pretty much that

Just bought new prime 1000w titanium for new build , they changed caps suplier no more blue hitachis they changed to rubycon :) just my 2 cents .

    I wonder if in 20 years we'll look back running at 120Ghz and laugh at how hard we had to try to get 5Ghz?

    1. Scorpius165
      Aylar önce

      We probably won't... we'll most likely scale up in threads and IPC efficiency, not so much in frequency. We've been stuck in 3 - 5 GHz range for the past 18 years. There is no indication that it will get radically different any time soon. I would be surprised if we get past 10 GHz on commercial products in that time.

      No, the Chiller was Intel, on stage, trying to fool their potential customers/Fred Ripper buyers. The Zen2 rumors were not official statements by AMD, so I don't think they are the same.

    I love these liquid nitrogen demonstrations - finding the extreme limits of hardware can certainly be fun and rewarding, but i'm curious what the general OC limits are on normal air/aio cooling on the 3900x. What kind of clocks do you get when you push it on something like a noctua nh-d15 or a quality AIO? - I've seen quite a few aio vs d15 comparisons that show the d15 is a little more effective at removing heat in many situations, is there any reason to go with an aio these days?

    So, interesting point, the CPU is marketed like this: AMD RYZEN 9 3900X 12-Core 3.8 GHz (4.6 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 105W 100-100000023BOX Desktop Processor That's on newegg, which I assume their info for the product is correct. What you got on all-core without PBO is 4.3GHz. So that is most likely their max frequency setting without PBO, and not OC'd of course. What that means is you should be able to attain 300MHz with PBO with conditions being right, meaning excellent cooling, whereas with 1st Gen about the best you could get was an extra 100 MHz.

    8:20 the big tank is also a Dewar. Vacuum insulated, vacuum-sealed is food packaging. Basically a tank within a tank with (low) vacuum in between, as you said. Possibly also heatshield(s)/milar, but usually that's only for storage vessels in the case of LN2, not for transport vessels like this one. The smaller one probably has a lower vacuum (so less vacuum), hence it insulates less. Also the emissivities of the insides will be less favourable. Must say that I don't actually know the actual right terminology, I'm a physicist, not a linguist. At my research chair for superconductivity and cryogenics we usually just call them all Dewars, or simply nitrogen transport vessel. 10:50 this is because of the Leidenfrost effect, if anyone's wondering :)
