    There are stacks of really good matx cases though, which is the cruel part.

    In a counter argument though, unless you're an extreme (dice/ln2), an avid high mhz memory overclocker or have a specific feature requirement, the boards available in mATX are actually fine. Though I do agree it is a shame that there aren't any extreme mATX boards anymore, I think most people are buying boards way over the top of what they actually need with no use benefit. There seem to be so many people with $500+ boards to only go into the bios and load xmp, and then seemingly only plug in their keyboard and mouse.

    I run my 5950X on a B550 mortar, with 3800C16 dual rank memory (I've had it past 4000C16 on 2x DR or 4xSR sticks 1:1 as well) running a Hydra OC profile at 4.7Ghxz 1.35v game clocks. It has 802.11AX, 2.5G LAN, I run nvme boot + 2x4TB QVO SSDs in RAID0, run my Oculus through the USB C port, it does everything I need without fault and cost $200. That's freeing up $300 better spent on faster memory, more storage, more cores, etc.

    Previously I ran my 3900X for years, then the 5950X - both overclocked on a X570M Pro4 (sold working fine), and even the B450M steel legend ($100 board) in my partners pc with a 5700G with an decent all core OC and four sticks of 3200C14 (she is in it for the rgb) has had no trouble. All solid boards in their on right, especially for the money.

    Yeah there are a lot of damn good mATX cases *pats Caselabs SM5* (I'm never getting rid of this thing).

    Suppose we don't need extreme boards but having the option would be good. The main thing that fucking shits me with them is on 90% of boards the main m.2 is under the GPU... I know there's not much room but it's utterly stupid especially the PCI-e 4.0 ones seeing they don't play nice with high heat and can overheat very easily when under a 300w heater...

    My 1800X had no issues on the B350M Mortar Arctic but I never overclocked it because of the horrible VRM heatsink. The 5900X seems to be fine on this B550M Mortar but I haven't bothered trying to overclock it, I cbf overclocking anymore seeing the boost tech is pretty decent now as long as it's kept cool.

    i have 2 x caselabs mercury s3 ITX.

    I previously had 2 x Caselabs Mercury S5 MATX, which i sold when i moved to ITX.

    Also still have 1 caselabs S8 E-ATX, had two of them, and sold one.

    never want to use any other case ever again since getting caselabs 6 years ago. now they are gone :(

    But S3 with 5950x/x570 impact/RTX3090 all watercooled (1x240mm + 1x280mm rads)
    But S3 with 5800x/x570 strix itx/RTX3080 all watercooled (2x240mm rads)

    all this goodness in ITX and sub 50 degrees on max load, now thats what im talking about. vid cards usually sit mid 30 to high 30s in games.

    I pity those who never got to use Caselabs. Hands down were the best, period.

    If you make products too good, noone will ever buy from you again. Business is all about repeat customers. Caselabs customers all bought the cases they needed and then never went back to buying more.

    Lesson learned by the other case companies.

    I wish I bought some more cases but didn't :(.

    Yeah same, these cases are solid and I really like this SM5 because it's reversible which has come in handy a few times when I wanted to change which side the case is on.

    Yeah that's true but Caselabs didn't go bust because people weren't buying them. It was there parent company that made server racks that went bust and took Caselabs with it. Thank drump and his stupid tariffs for that, they apparently had trouble getting the steel and aluminium from China in the quantity and quality they wanted. Think there was also a lot of problems with people high up in the company as well but from what I remember the tariffs were the main reason.

    this software includes the gpu if its amd/ati
    and is per application. maybe you want a single core oc that pbo might normally go hard across a few cores

    Ah gotcha, per application settings, makes more sense now.

    a one stop shop for cpu and gpu makes a lot of sense :thumbup:

    Exactly, say if you had a 5600X you might have it jacked with an all-core OC in some competitive FPS games, but stock or even under-volted in something like WoW.

    Again though, really would have been ideal back with R7 1600-1700's, 2600-2700's and even 3600-3700's, but with how the 5000 series boosts, there probably isn't too much to gain from it at the moment.

    haha ok tldr, some new x570S boards have a feature that allows you to mix pbo boost + all core OC to get the best of both worlds, it does this by having a trigger point on how much amps the cpu is pulling for when it switches from pbo boost to your all core OC, this is most beneficially on cooler chips like the 5600/5800x the hotter chips 5900/5950x the difference is negligible as your all core OC will be more or less on part with pbo boost performance due to the heat output during high workloads.
