    I think you have to meet the requirements set in the rules for that sub-forum. https://hardforum.com/threads/fsft-rules-read-before-posting-or-commenting.1891705/ I guess they are a little stricter about who can post there.

    Upgrade An OEM PC With A GTX 1050 Ti

    This finally showed up on Newegg, I'm not seeing it anywhere else yet: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-137-081 It's priced at $155, which seems reasonable, given that it's the only card in this class.

    AMD Radeon RX 460 Official Specification Information @ [H]

    So what happened to this: The little ~50W GPU that could supposedly match the GTX 950 at 86W total system power: Instead we get a GPU that match the 950.... at about the same power. I thought the whole purpose was to be as energy efficient as possible and comfortably fit into the <75W...

    3 Polaris GPUs Unveiled

    470 on the left, 460 on the right. The 460 looks like it's begging for a low-profile version.

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    Has anyone bit on this? How is Ebay for TV's in general? That's $200 less that what Amazon is offering ($150 less than a week ago...).

    Surface Pro 4

    I'm getting the m3 too. I'm coming from a Surface Pro 2, the original one not the slightly upgraded version. Based on some very quick indirect comparisons (i5 4200 vs i5 5200, i5 5200 vs Broadwell m3, Broadwell m3 vs what Intel says about Skylake m3...) I'm guessing I'll get more or less...

    Surface Pro 4

    Yeah I think I was seeing the student discount. But on the plus side, getting a student discount applied is really easy, just select a school on the education site. I called them up and got them to change my existing order, so that works too.

    Surface Pro 4

    It looks like there is a sale on the Microsoft Store right now on SP4 and the Book (Columbus Day maybe?); it's about $100 off (and up, based on specs) on the SP4, not too bad. If I'm reading their pre-order policy right it sounds like anyone ordering before the sale will get charged the sale price.

    Skylake lower SKU's availability?

    Amazon has the i5 6500, I picked one up a few weeks ago. I saw a few other non-K CPUs there, but I'm not so sure about i3's or any of the low power i5's.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    I got my white case today, it would have been Wednesday, but the post office came just a little too early... Everything works great. The white coating looks really nice. That little bit of extra vertical and horizontal space makes it a lot easier to squeeze everything in. The top fans are a...

    upgrade question regarding a gtx 750 ti vs gtx 760

    I think that's just at retail, you can still order from the Galaxy store.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    My backplates are the same as the337's, and it looks like most of those pictured in this thread are too.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    Even if you only have one back plate you can just use the screw to hold the un-notched side in place. It's not a heavy card so it doesn't take much.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    As far as I know it's a firmware limitation. Afterburner won't let me set it below 40% (with the hardware control, and low-level access boxes ticked), but maybe there's some other way to get around that.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    The cooler seems very good so far. The temps never get too high (around 60C) and the fan rarely needs to speed up. I'm running it outside of the case though, it's still in a fairly closed off space, but things might change when it's put inside of a real case. The only problem I have is the...
