    A question for my Pascal gamer friends

    I managed to snag a brand new 1080ti Gaming X for $400 because I sold my Nitro 5700XT and my R9 Fury just wasn't working right with the new drivers.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 is ~10% faster than RTX 3080

    If the 3080 FE increases CPU and RAM temps by about 15c depending on configuration. I wonder what the 3090 FE will do?

    Reusing Corsiar HX850 from 2015 due to shortage

    My EVGA 1000GQ is from 2016 and I am going to keep chugging along with it. Works perfect. I say just clean the unit out and keep using it. Inspect the caps while you are at it.

    VideoCardz: AMD to introduce Zen3 on October 8, Radeon RX 6000 series on October 28

    I hope they have an easy toggle for the 16 core model to swap to 8 cores on games that scale on 8 cores or less. ( Which is most) However there is one game out there that eats cores that just came out, I can't remember what that is. Man if Zen 3 ccx is indeed unified 8 cores this will be a...

    Silicone goo on a secondhand motherboard - big deal, or no?

    (Rumor) NVIDIA Ampere Launch Window Leak

    Yep, that's what I am going with. I have to see big navi before I make my final decision but it will certainly sway both ways. Can't wait. :)

    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 20.8.3

    Its the silicon... I had one black screen once a day and the other never black screen ever, at the same time, on the same rig. These drivers on the other hand cause screen flicker when polling on MSI afterburner.

    Buying a CPU on eBay?

    You could but it will just take quite a bit of hassle. I would honestly pass on it if you are not willing to accept the risk.

    Buying a CPU on eBay?

    Bent pins from poor packaging... someone saying its new but they just cleaned it really well and its defective and you will be SOL on the warranty. That actually happened to me with a 3800x, it had a faulty IMC that would intermittently not post unless RAM speed was dialed way below spec.
