    Alcohol and Ebay don't mix...

    So I have few vices in my life... One of them is an occasional enjoyment of fine liquor... The other vice I enjoy is browsing ebay for rare PC hardware... Well... These two should not mix... I now have mixed emotions about my most recent purchase. So I have a couple options. One: sell...

    REPLACEABLE EARCUPS. Why are they so rare?

    I'm looking to spend roughly $150 on a new headset to replace my current Bose set. My current set sound GREAT, the audio is just as good today when I bought them over two years ago. In fact, I really wish I could keep them, but there's a problem. The godamn earcups have rotted off and it's...

    Finally got my 1950X upgrade installed.

    No overclocking just yet, as I lost my second EPS 8 pin connector, waiting on a new one to arrive in a few days. Enough talk; pics.. Yeah yeah, no tempered glass. I bought this case literally a few weeks before the TG version was announced. I'm still salty about it. Once the door opens...

    What is the point of a NAS?

    No, seriously, what is the point of a NAS, and how did they get so popular? I've been racking my brain trying to understand why someone would choose a NAS solution over a local server. In every instance where I tried to compare the two, the local server was cheaper, more powerful, more...

    Projectors: How trivial is it to replace a DMD Chip?

    Hello all. I am so wildly out-of place when looking at projectors and whatnot. I see a lot of projectors selling on Ebay with DMD faults. A few Google searches tell me its about a $200 fix, but requires getting one's hands dirty actually taking things apart. I trust you guys more than any hack...

    Crossover BT 405K?

    Crossover BT 405K Is this the 404K successor? What is different about it? Seems to be using a 10 bit panel, but I can't make out much of anything other than that from the specs. I currently own the Crossover 404K and I think it's a pretty good deal. VA has the best black-levels outside of OLED...

    This Needs Its Own Thread.

    I've seen it discussed in other threads. I've seen it mentioned here and there. But lets get straight to the point and give this the full topic it deserves. In the modern, digital age: there are few reasons to pre-order video games; In fact one can argue that pre-ordering a video game is a...

    So, in Australia, Founder Editions are no different in price...

    Yep, looks like my theory on the Non-FE Pricing was correct. The 'Non-FE' price is the price of the PCB. Any custom work, cooling, BIOS, OCing is extra. So... I wonder if the US will follow suit. Ready to pay Founder's Edition pricing for non-FE parts?

    So, Where are the 5K monitors?

    I don't know if this has been asked, but where exactly are all the 5K monitors? We only have two 2880p panels IN THE WORLD at the moment: You'd think we'd see all kinds of 1%'er products with 5K resolution on 150" screens or some other nonsense. I would probably kill, or at least become violent...

    AMD Dual Fiji Announced? AMD Pro Duo!

    AMD Announces the Radeon Pro Duo AMD is spinning this as a development-focussed workstation-class card, from the press release. I'm much more open to the more reserved naming, as it sounds much more confident than naming something to attract angsty teenagers. This may be the first of a few...

    Anything Stiffer than Cherry Green..?

    Hey guys. I just upgraded to a Ducky Cherry Green keyboard and I love love LOVE the audible click and stiff(ish) keys. But I'm a pretty heavy typist, and I like a LOT of resistance. I don't want to type, I want to BATTLE WITH MY KEYBOARD. I slap the return key and spacebar with a hard THWACK...

    Acer Z35 Ultrawide: True 200Hz!?

    Apparently the new $1.1K Acer Z35 will support an 'Overclock' mode up to 200Hz via DP 1.2! I would LOVE to see that in motion! The unit will also support G-Sync, soft underglow for eye-fatigue reduction and a pretty fully-featured stand. Its a shame it's only a 1080p 35-inch panel, but the...

    Anyone try to Flash a Fury X BIOS onto a Fury (Vanilla)?

    I know that a ton of AMD card have been able to unlock shader cores via BIOS hacking.

So the $100 question is: Can this be done with the Fury -> Fury...

    980 Ti has an MSRP in Australia...

    Yep, thats the legit price There is no 'but just maybe' like with the Titan X (selling for $1600 AU) for extrapolating reasons for the greatly inflated price over the currency converted and taxed US price. The 980 Ti costs $1000 Australian Dollars.

    Media player application with motion 'upscaling'

    Hey guys. I'm looking for a good media player application that has some features I have not seen before in any PC programs. One of the main features is the 'smooth motion' effect that higher refresh TVs have on 24 or 25hz video scaling to 60, or even 120-240 hz on panels that support them. I was...

    Question: what is the street value of second-hand radiators?

    Hey guys, I'm cashing in my Christmas present to myself this year on a new WC loop. I'm seriously considering getting one of Alphacool's 'cool answer' DDC/XT pre-picked kits.

    The age old question: Radiator Thickness?

    Does Haswell use crappy TIM between the IHS and silicon?

    Hey guys, can anyone confirm if the new i5 and i7 4XXX series chips use cheap TIM between the IHS and the silicon? [H]ardOCP's review hinted that it was (unfortunately) using the same IHS setup as Ivy bridge CPUs, instead of running the same setup as Sandy Bridge (soldered contact). Is...

    The best 20-23" monitors meeting my ridiculous requirements?

    Hey guys. I am doing some research on monitors, as I may be updating my eyefinity set up. The big problem is that I run my three monitors on a sturdy 3-swing-arm stand that is terrific but only supports 22" or smaller monitors (technically it says 19" but my 19"s fit with room to spare).
