    Even the other hacking experts agree with AMD stuff, let a person in as admin and the system is easily corrupted. TBH this is true with Intel or any other system. I can see the short sellers thinking they have it made, not quite.

    No one with the prior issues of meltdown etc. were claiming false news, this is definitely different.

    Well, you guys won't believe the trip I've been on. Leaving for Manila today via ferry. Turns out that the super geek in me, put the SIM card in backwards on our pocket WiFi, or we would have had a connection for the past week. Smooth, I know:)

    This is what I have for now.

    I had to replace the fan with 2x Furious Vardars because the stock fans wasn't able to keep the GPU under 80c.

    Zotac GTX 1080 AMP, probably the worst overclocking card I've ever used.

    Even the factory GTX1080 I think is better binned than this crap.


    GN has also reviewed Zotac's previous GTX970 meant for 'extreme overclocking' and it overclocked very poorly. The AMP Extreme 1080Ti also scored very poorly relative to other competitors which are in the same price range / cheaper.


    Zotac, never again!






    My next nvidia card would be a factory or ROG Strix edition (OCers under contract with ASUS would share the XOC bios to unlock TDP).

    They can flap their lips as much as they like, a con-scam like this needs a thread of believably, the companies involved started out finding accounting discrepancies in companies - real and exaggerated, believable enough to panic shareholders and drop the prices while the time elapses for the truth to come out, whereby the perpetrators make a windfall in profits from short sales.

    This scam is a twist on their previous scam, finding a security thread to create panic to exploit - it needs to be believable, and needs to be able to be nebulously described but able to be used to trick otherwise smart people into playing along - oblivious to the real intents - "sure seems real to me, not to be ignored".

    Given the same Administrator access, physical access, and ability to load custom BIOS and signed custom drivers, Intel chipset's and CPU's can be hacked to find hoops to jump them through as well. All bets are off if all those access invasions are allowed. It's nothing special to AMD, except they are small but growing quickly, turning around that momentum provides a much better return on short sales, put's, and combinations to extract profit from the stock price movement.

    Which are the real intents:

    After short-selling surge, Israeli firm says it finds AMD chip flaw
    Jim Finkle, Arjun Panchadar, MARCH 13, 2018 / 8:41 AM
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-...irm-says-it-finds-amd-chip-flaw-idUSKCN1GP273

    "(Reuters) - An Israeli cyber security research firm with six employees on Tuesday said it had found flaws in Advanced Micro Devices microprocessors that made them vulnerable to hacks.

    AMD said it was investigating the claims, which were followed by heavy trade in AMD shares. The stock closed up 1 percent to $11.64 after a day of volatile trade. AMD traded between $11.10 and $12.04 following release of the report from Tel Aviv-based CTS Labs.

    CTS executives told Reuters that they had shared their findings with some clients who pay the firm for proprietary research on vulnerabilities in computer hardware. They declined to identify their clients or say when they had provided them with data on the vulnerability.

    “I can’t really talk about my clients,” said Yaron Luk-Zilberman, chief financial officer at the firm that was founded in January 2017.

    Short-seller Viceroy Research published a 25-page report on the vulnerabilities on Tuesday, betting its shares will fall.

    AMD said that the report took it by surprise.

    “This company was previously unknown to AMD and we find it unusual for a security firm to publish its research to the press without providing a reasonable amount of time for the company to investigate and address its findings,” AMD said in a note to customers on its website.

    Viceroy founder Fraser Perring told Reuters that somebody anonymously emailed him a draft of the report at about 4 p.m. on Monday. The firm spent much of the evening analyzing the situation and ended up taking a “sizeable” short position in AMD, he said.

    There has been increased investor interest in AMD since the beginning of the month, with options drawing large trades that appeared to be betting on increased near-term gyrations in the shares. Puts, options contracts that protect against a drop in the share price, were particularly active. Last week, the cumulative number of open put contracts outnumbered open calls 1.5-to-1, the most defensive this measure has been in more than two years, according to options analytics firm Trade Alert data. That measure declined slightly by Tuesday. On Friday and Monday, short selling of AMD’s stock increased by about 15 million shares, according to S3 Partners, a financial analytics firm. That brought overall short interest in the chipmaker to about 180 million shares, the most since at least 2010.

    “Over the last several days there was a spike in short selling that was completely out of the norm,” said Ihor Dusaniwsky, S3 Partners’ head of research.

    New York-based cyber security firm Trail of Bits told Reuters that it had verified the findings from CTS, which paid $16,000 for a review of the AMD vulnerabilities.

    A Trail of Bits analyst spent a week reviewing detailed technical reports from CTS, along with “proof of concept” code that could be used to launch attacks on computers running vulnerable AMD chips, Trail of Bits Chief Executive Dan Guido told Reuters.

    “These are real security issues in AMD code and processors” that hackers could exploit to manipulate or steal secure data, he said.

    For the attacks to work, an attacker must first obtain administrator access to a targeted network, Guido said.

    So there you go, it's intent is to cause panic and depress the price of AMD, and other companies, to profit from the damage induced.

    So do you want to help them increase their profits from their Con-Scam??

    I don't think Zotac are that bad, they offer some of the highest factory clocked cards that you can buy, and their stock performance is often higher than other manufacturers (from research I did when I bought my Zotac GTX 1070 AMP edition), and my Zotac card overclocks to about as high as you can expect (2113Mhz max boost clock). I think you've been unlucky, and I'm surprised your Zotac 1080ti does not run cool, because reviews of Zotac 1080ti AMP Extreme was showing the core to run very cool, they didn't do so good on the VRM temps though (if I recall correctly). Pity you had to replace the fans on the card, does your case run hot?

    Okey-Dokey... here it is. MUCH better for CPU and GPU. Massive drop in temps (about 12°C on CPU and about 10°C on GPU). Tomorrow I will compare bin quality of the second 8700K that arrived today and then button it up with the better of the two CPUs. Both 360mm rads are push/pull with the XSPC pulling cool air in from the front and the Floe Riing push air out through the top. A total of 13 120mm fans. I really like the quick-connect fittings where I spliced the hoses from the EVGA Hybrid cooler to the Floe Riing 360 radiator. Slicker than snot using those for the connection. Made topping off the fluid really easy, too. During that mod I only lost about a tablespoon of coolant between both parts.

    Time for Mr. Fox to go night-night.
