    3900x issue

    This might not be a solution but I had temperatures issues on a new 6700K that I had sent to siliconlottery to de-lid and see what numbers/temps he got. I was using the AIO cooler that I had been using on my older system and after reseating multiple times with no luck I purchased a new cooler...

    2080 ti reliability

    I just recently had to RMA an FTW3. The memory temps closest to the PCIe were 96°, it produced color artifacts at anything above default clocks and when I did overclock it performed quite poorly. I spoke with a rep on the phone and they decided to RMA it. My only spiff with it was they charged...

    WiFi Woes - Cannot Seem To Get Whole House Covered

    I second this. Closing on a new house this Friday and I went with Unifi's AP in-wall pros. Prevents me from having to stick an AP on the ceiling and simplifies my setup.

    Blower coolers

    Is the water cooled Vega 64 out of the question for you? That might fit the bill for everything you're looking for unless the price is too big a factor.

    New Freesync Monitor - do i dump 1080ti?

    I own an Acer X34 gsync monitor and while it was pricey I won't be going to anything else. I had an Asus PB278Q and while it would overclock to `82Hz I still had tearing and low quality play at lower framerates. If I drop into the 40s with my current monitor it's still smooth and tearing has...

    Warm? - Acer X34 Predator - $999 on Newegg

    Purchased this back when there was the refurbished deal for $720 and have really enjoyed it. After this I'll never go back to a monitor that isn't gsync or comparable.

    1080 or 1080TI

    If money is not an issue and you don't want fluff then just get any high end 1080ti from one of the big names. You also might take a look at B&H photo instead of newegg.

    Choosing best cooled 1080ti..Asus Strix, EVGA hybrid or other?

    I went with the EVGA 1080ti FTW3 and have loved it. The fan noise profile isn't annoying and it'll keep it around 70 degrees and 2ghz while gaming.

    Am I crazy? Went from SLI 1080 to single 1080Ti and it's smoother??

    The FTW3 hasn't been released as of yet and while work was busy I figured I could wait a couple more weeks until it is.

    1080ti Pre-order, Retail, and AIB availability watch

    I pre-ordered a FTW3 1080ti from B&H photo but I agree, I wish they had released their top tier cards at the same time that everyone else did. I can't help but think that they lost out on quite a few sales because people didn't want to wait.

    Am I crazy? Went from SLI 1080 to single 1080Ti and it's smoother??

    My only SLI setup were 680s. Some of the games that I played utilized them fairly well but it got really old having to drop a video card just to play something without stuttering. Crossfire 290s drove me nuts after that. I finally moved onto a single 980ti and a gsync ultrawide monitor. While...

    I just bought a 1080ti, I'm going to hold out till 2019 for my next GPU, who's with me??

    I tend to agree with what whateverer has said here. I find the more money I make the less I'm concerned with value/time. When the next best thing comes around I buy it and use it until the cycle repeats. However, titans have been my limit... If the next xx80 performs better than the 1080ti and...

    evga gtx 1080 ti FE

    Well, I watched this series of videos and while he was a bit more carefree with the card than I would have been I didn't see any issues with his results. It gave me the info I wanted and i'll be able to make a semi-informed decision moving forward.

    evga gtx 1080 ti FE

    Take a look at Gamer Nexus's hybrid mod video. This is the third video in the series of making it. This should give you a better idea of what to expect. For voltage I think Tom's Hardware had\has access to an early MSI afterburner build that allows more voltage so you might check that out as well.

    GTX 1080 vs. EVGA GTX 780Ti Kingpins in SLI

    Yeah I wouldn't say it makes 30 feel like 60 but i have a hard time telling when it drops into the 40s. I went from 2560x1440 to 3440x1440 with g-sync and while I lost a good chunk of fps I gained a more pleasurable experience.
