    Green Man Gaming Black Friday Sale / up to 82% Off

    I just got Doom Eternal a month ago for $29 and I feel like it was money well-spent. I’m tempted by Star Wars Squadrons but the reviews I’ve read say it’ll disappoint anyone who’s looking for a modern X-Wing vs Tie-Fighter.

    Which shooter to play if you’ve missed the last few years of PC gaming?

    I ended up picking up Doom Eternal back during the Steam Halloween sale and have been enjoying it. My 2080 was able to play the game at Ultra settings and the graphics were impressive I’ll probably pick up a Wolfenstein bundle at some point when I can get a deal on it. I’m intrigued by the new...

    Intel 10700K 5.2ghz @ 1.305v, temps seem decent during real world use, can I run it 24/7?

    CPU: 10700K 5.2ghz @ 1.305v (52x CPU, 49x Ring) MB: MSI MAG Tomahawk Z490 Ram: Patriot Viper 4400mhz cl19 Cooler: Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer II 280 I've always done my overclocking by trying to find the highest clock speed I can run without having to increase voltage. This is the first time...

    Steelcase Leap Sold by Amazon Brand New $731.62

    I had the same thoughts when I saw it. I love my ME7ERG. I am in need of a second chair... I wonder how this one feels.

    Does a software controllable USB RGB light exist?

    I’m looking for the color to match the colors I set my other rgb components to be, without having to use a standalone remote like on the cheap RGB strips. The only things my google searching turned up were Philips Hue products and the Corsair iCUE LS100 Starter Kit which includes an external...

    Does a software controllable USB RGB light exist?

    I am looking to add ambient lighting behind my monitor and would love for it to be controllable by either Razer Chroma or MSI Mystic Lights. I can’t seem to find anything in my searches. I’ve found USB rgb lights controlled by an app, or their own remote, but can’t find any that are advertised...

    Arctic Liquid Feezer II 240mm = $99.99. 280mm = $109.99. 420mm = $152.97.

    Got the new build fired up and I’m impressed. The Liquid Freezer II 280 is quiet and my 10700K idles at 29c. I’ve got mine set to exhaust and it’s seeing pretty cool air from the 3 140mm intake fans, so I don’t think there would be much to gain from switching to intake. Max CPU temp during...

    Arctic Liquid Feezer II 240mm = $99.99. 280mm = $109.99. 420mm = $152.97.

    I got the 280mm version during Prime Days for the same price. I just finished my build with it in a Phanteks P500A. The pic is from a weird angle, the 2080 isn’t crooked/sagging IRL. The anti-sag bracket that came with the Phanteks case actually seems to do a good job keeping the card level...

    Lian-Li Lancool II Mesh Performance

    I’m a video card away from having completed a new build in a P500A. It seems remarkably similar to this case, however I was able to mount a 280mm radiator to the top and 3 140mm fans on the front. That gives it the edge if you ask me. I specifically wanted the non-rgb version of the case...

    Do you use a grounding strap, or another form of ESD control when building or working on your computer?

    Working on PCBs is where I was first exposed to wearing a grounding strap. I knew it was overkill for building a pc, but figured it wouldn’t hurt to use the one I had laying around. I’m just planning to ground myself on my case from here on out. Not worth the hassle of using the strap.

    Haven't built a rig since the i7-3770k was king, is hardware offloaded audio still a thing? I'm finding very little [H]ard evidence on the subject.

    If I were gaming alone I’d be out in the living room on my 75” 4K TV with surround sound. Since I am not, the headphones are a necessity. my girlfriend’s desk is directly next to mine. If we had speakers it would get annoying quickly.

    Need a new video card by next Tuesday, choices are 5700XT or 2060 Super (yuck to both), which one for WoW?

    I already had Shadowlands preordered. Free would have been good though. I’m happy with the 2080 I ended up getting. It’ll hold me over well enough. I think I’ll probably keep this until 20gb cards are available.

    Do you use a grounding strap, or another form of ESD control when building or working on your computer?

    Initial responses are making me feel better about not being able to find my grounding strap. My case should be here today, so I can finally start the build.
