    One thing for sure... Prices will go up. SSD's, memory is already up:D Price of Silicon Wafer Continues to Soar

    "SUMCO, which is a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturer, recently announced forecast of its performance for fourth quarter and estimated that price of 300mm wafer will be at least 20% higher than that from fourth quarter of last year. SUMCO is a leading silicon wafer manufacturer that is accounted for two-thirds of global silicon wafer markets along with Shin-Etsu Chemical."

    “We are also planning to increase price of silicon wafer by 20% in 2018.” said CEO Hashimoto Mayuki of SUMCO. “Price of silicon wafer will continue to rise in 2019.”

    I have a feeling that one is going to be VERY popular when it launches.

    I already have it.
    The RX 580 (despite benchmarks) behaves pretty much similar to a GTX 1060 performance wise and is capped to 68W.
    Asus could have made better cooling for the GPU and avoid loud noise that accompanies it, but still.

    I was wondering though what is Ryzen's 1700 lid (Integrated heat spreader - IHS) made of?
    I am probably going to get another 16GB stick for this laptop this month (black friday) so I can get dual-channel on it, and while I'm in it, I will probably do a re-paste with GeLid Extreme.
    I was also thinking on getting Conductonaut Liquid Metal obviously as its the best, but I need to know if this would damage ryzen's lid (the heat pipes/heat sink as far as I know are copper based though).

    IHS is nickel-plated copper. Liquid metal will be fine on it.

    Very useful. Thank you. I found similar info online, but it wasn't clear if the lid itself was made out of it or not.

    The IHS is soldered with AMD CPU's, Ryzen 7 and TR, so no easy delidding. :)

    Here's a delidding of the ThreadRipper IHS for your entertainment:

    I don't recommend conductive TIM's, too much chance of droppings and drippings causing trouble. There are plenty of good non-conductive pastes that will do well enough.

    I wouldn't re-paste at all though, why start out on that whole chain of re-pasting for a couple of degree's of temperature drop, especially when you aren't thermal throttling?

    New AMD Radeon Software Crimson ReLive 17.11.2 driver (11/17/2017 ). Nothing mentioned.
    And please remember laping your lid. AMD's newer lid is trash. It's heavy concave. Intel's lid go same way as well.

    Sounds like Oculus broke it since they don't support it any more, so maybe AMD hasn't addressed it because the retail ones are still fine?

    Will people get the truth? Nope. This can or will be easily moved under the carpet. From both.
