    1080 Ti specs leak

    I never forgot about the 780 vs 780 Ti pricing. Because I purchased a 780 a month before the Ti came out for the same price and got completely screwed, and it was my first x80 class card. Was the first Ti card NVIDIA released above x60 in the last few generations.. if ever. Nobody knew...

    Adaptive Vsync + Frame capping: Experiencing either stuttering or tearing

    I heard it was 3x the refresh rate. Some comments here are stating that Pascal works better with it.. which doesn't make any sense. I guess I'll try to test it and compare between framerate capping with vsync (which isn't an ideal solution in all games due to engine oddities) but I'd still...

    Nvidia announces new game bundle, a game you've never heard of.

    Confusing the game with Overwatch..? TB felt Paragon was lackluster when he played it, and I agree. Would be a much better game if it was Parawatch and not POTA.

    What if 1080Ti never arrives?

    Well I went from SLI'd 780's to it and basically paid $630 to get off SLI for next to no performance improvements in well scaled games. (or negative performance in benchmarks) I did some lazy benching here: Yes it produces far less heat, noise and consumes less power, but that's a lot of...

    What if 1080Ti never arrives?

    4 more months huh.. I guess I'm returning the 1080 I just bought; what a shame. Was nice to finally get off SLI and not have my PC be a furnace.

    iRST 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon removal?

    Just updated to the latest version of iRST (v14) released yesterday. Now after rebooting, the "safely remove hardware" icon is down in my notification area when it wasn't before. In it is an option to eject my internal RAID array; which is just asinine. Trying to look up ways to get rid of...

    Acer Predator XR341CK 34" 144Hz Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync

    And here I'm like "Does anyone seriously game in a fully lit room?" Having lights on ruins the contrast of what you're looking at. Sure, it's fine for reading text and consuming bright content, but for dark content it makes things really hard to see. The same is true for trying to watch a...

    Acer Predator XR341CK 34" 144Hz Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync

    I do. :) Just panning the camera around is enough for me to hate the motion blur of LCDs. I loved my ULMB FG2421, but hated VA panels so I returned it; been running on my 75Hz no strobing PB298Q and even just navigating the desktop is much, much blurrier when in motion, not to mention less...

    Having a hard time finding a X99 and NAS case

    I think you misread. I mentioned 2x stacking in 3.5" bays and turning my 5.25" bay into a 3.5" HDD RAID hot swap. Though, how do you manage to fit 4 SSDs in there? Use some sort of converter or mod the case yourself? Interesting. I was considering a RAID card for a number of years, but I...

    Having a hard time finding a X99 and NAS case

    As much as I'd like a 5960X, I can't afford it and will be going with the 5930K (5820 doesn't have enough lanes). I'm not really buying very high end parts at all, but 8GB module DDR4 memory is pretty damn expensive too alongside X99 motherboards.. the ASRock being pretty extreme due to it...

    Having a hard time finding a X99 and NAS case

    The only one that's even acceptable is the Define XL (the only full tower), and I dismissed it in my initial searching. Looking over it again, it has 8 3.5" bays (16 SSDs) and 4 5.25" bays which is absolutely ideal for my potential mass storage setup (although I'd have to lose my fan controller...

    Having a hard time finding a X99 and NAS case

    I can convert the 5.25" drive bays to storage bays, so the internal bay space for 3.5" drives doesn't matter as they'll be double stacked by 2.5" SSDs. The HAF-X has 5 3.5" bays, that's 10 SSDs. Most other cases actually have more (up to 8 before super towers), so I don't think it's as much of...

    Having a hard time finding a X99 and NAS case

    I'd consider a rackmount for a NAS server (which I want eventually, but it's still way out of my price range), but not a desktop PC, so it's out of the equation. I can stack (at least) 2 SSDs in each drive bay, so that doubles the available drive storage. I'd probably at most have a RAID10...

    Having a hard time finding a X99 and NAS case

    Edit: I have chosen to go with the Primo. Came to the realization that 140mm fans fit with water cooling setups natively (post #9). No side fan will be a bummer for my jam packed GPUs, but there's nothing I can do about it until I finally have enough funds to switch to a full custom loop...

    BenQ XR3501: 35" 21:9 2560x1080 144Hz CURVED (Q2 2015)

    Oh, so a 144Hz 21:9 is actually going to exist and everyone interested in the Acer one isn't going to be let down? Too bad it's still VA, and a 21:9 35" display and 2560x1080 at that. I'm done with VA after first experiencing one on the FG2421, ugh. Curve or no curve, I doubt it will matter...
