    Hifiman HE-35X $90 Preorder at Massdrop

    I wanted to post my thoughts on these: 5/5 Stars Overall, the Price/Performance Ratio of the HE-35X's simply can't be beat. These hit all the marks of the originals while improving on every front. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an entry into audiphile goodness. Disclaimer: I use...

    The cheapskate watercooling Vega thread of chaos...

    I think Timespy is free and the Extreme/Ultimate/4k tests are paid. I know i bought 3DMark on sale on Steam for like $5 and it came with a bunch of the benchmarks. I'd love to see your scores! Healthy competition :)

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    I agree with benchmarks being a good reference point but needing to adjust the settings for individual games. I have had factory OC'd cards that I had to downclock to stock settings because they would CTD during gaming for a few MHz. So far the only problem I've run into with these settings are...

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    I've spent the past two weeks tweaking, here is the final daily-driver overclock: Memory: 1175 MHz (975 mV) Core +5%: 1712 MHz (1250 mV) https://www.3dmark.com/spy/6209735 Sapphire Vega 64 w/Alphacool Eiswolf 120 & Eisbaer 280 on CPU I feel like there is more room on the Core if I drop the...

    The cheapskate watercooling Vega thread of chaos...

    Guys I greatly appreciate all the info and advice!!! This might sound corny but this has helped me get comfortable with going down the full custom liquid cooling route for my next build. I want to put up some pictures of what I ended up with as well as some 3DMark records that I broke as a...

    The cheapskate watercooling Vega thread of chaos...

    Update : I snagged an Alphacool Eisbaer 280 cpu AIO cooler on fleabay for $50 including shipping, but the REAL update is the pump on the Vega cooler seems to be working fine now! The 120mm radiator on the Vega sounds like it's not completely full and I'm wondering if there was air caught in the...

    Yes! This is what worries me about the fittings and really the only reason why I'm apprehensive about going down the custom loop route. Yes, definitely going to do the CPU also which was why adding to the loop with more Alphacool attracted me. I have been using Corsair AIOs since the H50 for...

    The cheapskate watercooling Vega thread of chaos...

    I didn't realized they made VRM & MOSFET water blocks separately. That might be an interesting way to go. My hesitation with going all custom is in the connections. I've heard horror stories about not getting the connections properly set and having leaks right away or worse having those leaks...

    The cheapskate watercooling Vega thread of chaos...

    I love deals. Every one of my tech purchases is waiting for a particular piece of hardware to go on sale and I'm frequently buying last gen's hardware when the new stuff gets released because it's price dropped or stock floods eBay. Sometimes this doesn't work out. I get into a deal but then...

    What android email client do you use for work?

    Thanks, I tried k9 and was seriously disappointed. It seems like everything I try out just makes me realize how good TouchDown was. But then again I'm also overlooking the random crashes once a week and the absolutely atrocious interface, but you know... Rosy colored glasses right?

    What android email client do you use for work?

    Need a replacement for NitroDesk TouchDown, the most full featured Android email client I have ever used... RIP, and screw you Symantec for buying and killing it. Biggest three things I can't find : - calendar appointment category sync (colors of meetings) - format font in email (not just bold...

    System Monitoring App.

    How is the Nexus setup as an LCD display to the computer? I have fourteen cell phones laying around that I would LOVE to use as displays.

    Love/Hate relationship. Love it when it works, hate it when it decides to crash and pull me out of BF1 just as I get into a plane or line up a headshot...

    I built it, am I dumb?

    Haha! I think I'm familiar with the consumer flavors of Windows so I'm familiar with Win Server by proxy. I got the server for $1000. I was able to sell the 36x 2TB hard drives for ~$35 each and replaced with the 30x 3TB's for $28 each :woot: so with eBay fees and S/H i figure I broke even...

    I built it, am I dumb?

    If you're looking for the bottom line question : Win10 free upgrade/Server 2016/Essentials 2012? What OS should I install on the newly built home server if it's primarily used for media file storage? If you want the whole story: I started my journey into putting together a Home Server years...
