    Enmotus working on SLC/QLC hybrid NVME SSDs.

    These will use the QLC flash for long term storage. They have been working with Phison, who's controller will seamlessly move things back and forth in the background. Pricing or the ratio of SLC to QLC is not yet known, but drives are already been sampled to OEMs...

    Ryzen 3900x build: feedback sought

    My suggestion would be the dark Rock pro 4 from be quiet for your cooler. I have the non pro version on my 1700x and I love it. In fact you should look at be quiet's line of cases and power supplies. They are supposed to very quiet

    Corsair RMA success story

    I also had a good experience. There must be something wrong with the AX860i. Mine was a refurb from Newegg. It failed after 9 months. Got it replaced but the replacement failed after 4 months. This time I asked for an HX1000i which I just got 2 weeks ago. Need to take out my spare and put it in.

    Dell - SE2717HR 27" IPS LED FHD FreeSync Monitor $119.99

    Instead of spending the extra on a visa mount, might as well get this that is vesa compartible and 144hz

    Samsung 860 Evo 1TB $127.99 before tax

    Both Amazon and Newegg have both the M.2 and 2.5 inch versions on sale for $127.99 before tax. I picked one up to replace my 500gb 850 Evo and get rid of some cables in my case. Only about $10 more than 500gb NVME but twice the capacity (with no appreciable real life difference for gaming)...

    NVME vs SATA m.2?

    So with black Friday coming, I'm hoping for deals that allow an upgrade (sidegrade) from my 2.5 inch SSD (850 Evo 500gb) to an m.2 SSD to get rid of some cables in my cramped rig (also getting rid of 1tb hdd for general storage). With about similar pricing would you do 500gb NVME or 1tb sata...

    How impractical is a $3000 build?

    Since you still have room in your 3K budget and you really want an ultrawide, here's the same monitor but with 144hz instead of 75. I promise you, you really really want high refresh rate monitor.

    How impractical is a $3000 build?

    So maybe you should research a monitor first and find one you like. Honestly with the monitor you have selected 1080ti could be Overkill (just noticed it's 1080 ultrawide, not 1440P). You can look for a 3440 x 1440 ultrawide wide 144hz refresh to fully maximize use of the 1080ti. If you have the...

    How impractical is a $3000 build?

    My 2 cents. If you have the money and need the parts (to play at a certain resolution and refresh rate) then it's not impractical. That said, I would suggest a couple of changes to you pcp list. You don't necessarily need 32 gigs of RAM for gaming. I would get 16gigs and add the money saved to...

    Cooling new rig....purchase Jan/Feb 2019...thx

    Your post is vague. Are you asking for suggestion on cooling or suggestions on different parts? If it's about cooling, be more explicit. If it's for more pc parts, see the third pinned post titled "Answer these questions first". There you can specify what exactly you want suggestions on. The...

    Could this just be a troll video to garner up some views, or publicity?
