    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    I recently went all Team Red, so I changed up my case and loop. Currently running a 5900X and an 6900 XT as my Gaming PC. The bottom system is a dedicated Plex Server/Streaming PC with an 8700K. Both systems are in a Phanteks Pro 2.

    Thank you. I'm a huge Godzilla nerd, and my wife got me these reprints as a gift. The Heisei era was the best!

    With the purchase of a 5900X and an RX 6900 XT, I had to get a freesync monitor. So I switched from an ASUS PG279Q to the new 240hz Alienware AW2721D. I'm quite happy with it so far. Although, seeing all these Ultrawide monitors in here really makes me miss mine. That small monitor at the...

    Updated desk setup. It's an IKEA desktop on Alex drawers. Ultrawide is an Alienware AW3418DW (1440p). The smaller monitor below is a 13.3" (1080p) monitor.

    Natural selection 2

    I loved playing it when it was more popular. However, I'm not sure if this was everyone's experience, but I dealt with a lot of toxicity. Made me not want to even attempt to try Commander, let alone really play the game. It was bad on both sides. You'd have a dickhead Commander, or you'd...

    Yeah, it does look good. I'm pretty tempted to try painting mine now.

    Here's my dual system water cooled build. The bottom mATX is my Gaming system, and the ITX up top is a Plex Server/Streaming PC. My gaming system has an 8700k @ 4.9Ghz (All Cores) @1.31v. 32GB of 3600Mhz DDR4 and a 1080Ti with a modest overclock (2025Mhz). The ITX system has a 6700k @ 4.2Ghz...

    I can't tell from this angle, but maybe they're going to mount the card vertically?

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    I'm running two 1080's in SLI now, but I briefly ran a single 1080 card with my PG278Q. I don't play a wide array of games but Overwatch, Doom, and World of Warcraft ran great. I had to reduce a little of the eye candy in Doom, but overall, it still looked good and ran well.

    While I agree to an extent, I feel that the move from TN to IPS, along with the jump in resolution is in fact an upgrade. Of course, I am still trying to get used to the move from 144Hz, but all the games I've played still look good at 60Hz with G-Sync.

    Should I go buy a Logitech mouse so I don't have to hear this over and over again? I like their stuff, get over it.

    I just upgraded to an Acer Predator XB271HK and I'm really digging 4K. The much needed Windows scaling at 150% is a drag with some app/websites, but games look absolutely amazing on this thing! ...and here is my ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q, which has been placed in the corner until I can find a...

    Are there any 16x9 or 16x10 30 or 32" monitors with 144hz refresh?

    Closet thing you're going to find are the ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q and the PG279Q. They're both unfortunately 27", not your desired 30"+. But I have a PG278Q and I absolutely love it, I could never go back to a non G-Sync monitor.

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    I've gone one step further and reduced the Desktop Gamma within the nVidia Control Panel to 0.75. I think that it further helps the looks of the displayed images. I also invested in an Antec bias light LED strip that I put on the back of the monitor. This is quite honestly the best thing that...
