    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    3770k here (that I upgraded to from a 2500k about a year and a half ago to give it some extra life while I waited...) ready to upgrade. Looking forward to reviews, and I'll basically buy whichever has the best single threaded performance paired with the most cores. Hopefully reviews drop before...

    MULLVAD VPN

    I'm not sure how this relationship was formed, but I have to admit, I'm a fan. :) Of the VPN services I've trialed, Mullvad thus far has been my favorite!

    Intel Core i9-9900K 9th Generation CPU Review @ [H]

    I saw that price on launch day, but even by the end of the day, the prices had gone up. As of today, they're still selling for $580 basically everywhere: Amazon: $580 https://www.amazon.com/Intel-i9-9900K-Desktop-Processor-Unlocked/dp/B005404P9I/ NewEgg: $580...

    2070 worth buying now?

    I have a GTX 970 and I grabbed a Gigabyte $499 model as it had a backplate and 8+6 pin power over eVGA's naked card and 8-pin only. I would consider a 1080 or a 1080ti at a good price, but I want either a new card, or a card with plenty of warranty that's easily transferrable (follows card; I...

    Tesla Manufactured 80,000 Vehicles in Q3

    I saw a brand new Model 3 off the line at my detailer, and the paint was honestly pretty bad; lots of drips/debris/bubbles in the paint. I really hope they sort it out, as Tesla cars are a thing I would like to eventually own, but I would be pretty upset with the paint I saw at the prices they cost.

    3dfx Voodoo 5 6000

    The Voodoo 5500 AGP was the first piece of "kit" that I ever got and started me down the path of computers and PC gaming (along with the rest the my first system, who's specs I still remember). This thread makes me so very happy. :)

    GeForce RTX 2080 Overclocking Preview with Scanner @ [H]

    I'm curious if the Scanner Technology produces different results based on card temps; how well would the same card OC in a well ventilated case vs one that's struggling to keep cool.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX & 2950X CPU Review @ [H]

    Thanks for the great write-up! I enjoyed the last two sections the most, for sure. Keeps us in the loop when you get the motherboard situation sorted out. :)

    NVIDIA GPU Generational Performance Part 2 @ [H]

    Did a HardForum member loan a 780 Ti for these tests? I didn't see a shoutout anywhere.

    AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen 2 2700X Zen+ CPU Review @ [H]

    Great review! Glad to see AMD back in the game, so to speak. I'm curious about the dead CPU; was it a test bench CPU that only ran benchmarks @ 5GHz @ some voltage, or was it living in a desktop which it was borrowed from as needed? I haven't seen a confirmed kill on a newer intel CPU in...
