    I voted RTX 3090 but I'm just an average gamer plays stupid shooting games (CODMW) all day with a 3090....

    Who is buying a 3090?

    Good point. Only have two of these corsair fan and I'm hesitate to add more fans because want a quiet PC. So far it's been manageable and runs quiet :)

    Who is buying a 3090?

    Founders edition, runs quiet and cool. System power peaks at ~580W, so a 750W Gold PSU should be good enough if you don't run a monstrous CPU. Mine is a i7 9700F.

    Thoughts on first gen E5-2670

    Did a quick test on 2 x E5-2670 with 64GB Quad channel DDR3 ECC Reg 1333MHz, look at the memory bandwidth.

    Thoughts on first gen E5-2670

    I'm running a server with 2 socket E5 2670. I only benchmarked Cinebench R15 and got 1900 score. Pretty impressive given the price I paid for two CPUs (around 60 bucks each on eBay at the moment).

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Sold my X99 desktop before moving to new home.. it was a solid PC for photo editing and gaming, but it's just too big and heavy (fractual R4 case). Plus, my car trunk space is limited Now my computation gadgets are fully mobile

    i7-5820k vs. i7-6700K for sim gaming

    5820k can be easily overclocked to 4.5GHz, at least from my experience.... X99 motherboards have better VRM and quality in general, because it's HEDT! Almost doubled L3 cache, soldered TIM, 2 more cores, 4 more threads, Quad channel DDR4 I see no reason to get 6700k, especially if you do more...

    It was listed as New item. All the accessories are unopened, but the anti-static bag is open and you can see the figure prints on the socket.

    Green sticker in the mobo sold by Fry's, New or Restocked return?

    Update: Just checked Fry's store and EVERY NEW motherboard has this plastic seals on their box, and possibly the sticker too. The sales people told me they check against bent pins on every new motherboard. So nothing to worry about. Hi, I just pick a MSI X99S SLI Krait edition from Fry's. I...

    Need a new board & cpu. Whats hot and whats not?

    If ITX form factor is not an issue for you, Asus H97i-Plus is a good choice. It has the high quality 10K capacitor, the same one as my X99-A. It's a bit surprising but it's just there...
