    You won't see that. EVGA won't be around in 9 years. IMO.

    I would just request a refund. I don't want to see people bitching that EVGA won't honor the 10 year warranty in 9 years.

    Isn’t that all that’s needed? I remember trying to add APs to an existing wireless network year ago. You can’t ask normal users to join 2-3 wireless networks so they can have full coverage in the building. Maybe I could get by with one super...

    It's all about the user base! :D For my work, an outage will come just when something is desperately needed or I have to jump on a plane to get it, so a second connection can pay for itself. But then once you get used to it, just never having...

    Yeah, what other company would even offer this? Any one else would either a) swear they'll cover them for a year or two until they then put out a press release saying they no longer can, but offer you a 10% discount as an apology on a direct...

    Got my first two refunds - $60 a pop. Truly reminds you of just how great of a company EVGA is. Such a huge loss for them to no longer be an NVIDIA partner. :(

    It's taking everything in me to not buy the $600 Asus Gene. I wont use it to its fullest, but I don't want to wait for a proper MATX board either

    You dont need a 360mm rad to cool them it looks like. You can change some settings in the bios and get the same performance with lower power usage and temps by 20c! It is super easy to change too. I am shocked AMD didnt do this at all.

    I'd love to do an SFF build but I am having a hard time finding a small case that supports a 360mm rad. Any recommendations? I'd love to have the small size but also awesome airflow (will be using air cooled GPUs). With the 4xxx series over 300mm...

    I had sticker shock while ordering the. Realized it wasn’t bad compared to my 9900k build. CPU was a $150 difference, ram is $20 more than I paid back then for DDR 4. Motherboard is around $70 more after bundle discount. So around $250 more...

    I think demand overall is going to be low, for this and especially the new RTX 4000 series. A lot of people are "full" and don't have money for seconds. We just got out of two years or so of insane demand for PC components as people built tons...

    I'm really glad that they finally released Zen4, but I went the opposite way with this...instead of jumping onto the latest & greatest, I took advantage of the price cuts on the last gen to score me a Ryzen 9 5950x for the same price as what the...

    I picked up a 7950x to do some testing with. With the node shrink I was hoping for something like 20% gains in efficiency vs ryzen 5000/3000 series CPUs. So far these are my results: Bottom line up front (Should I buy this for mining?): No...

    Ok, so I just finished playing around with my build over the last few hours (more details here for power efficiency stuff: https://hardforum.com/threads/ryzen-7000-series-efficiency.2022218/) For general users there's a few annoyances: 1.)...

    Lol you’re not kidding! The 670E Tachi at $499-$20 combo-$20 rebate seems like a steal compared to Asus boards. I’ve had great luck with Asrock so hopefully they don’t let me down this time. As another user above noted. This platform should...

    That's what cellular tether is for. My users are not that picky. :) Plus - I don't want to go down that path. I am lucky enough to have two fiber providers in my neighborhood but yet I am still sticking with cable, for now (just the right overall...

    I think its great that people share their experiences, WiFi and especially mesh networks in particular have come a long way in a short amount of time and they certainly aren't as cost prohibitive as they once were. Or at least they don't feel as...

    Maybe you guys can buy a warranty for your extended warranty.

    Well, DDR5 prices aren't as insane as I feared. $200 for memory and $260 for a motherboard later and it's time to test out this 7950x. I didn't see any reviews focused on the power efficiency side of things for CPU intensive tasks so I uhh...

    By about $52 for the board I was looking at. However I'm scared Ill end up having to pay import tax... Just my luck.
