Doing a 9700k with Asus Z390 Prime-A mobo build.
Narrowed it down to these two 3200 16GB kits from Corsair and Ballistix:
I bought a 2080 Ti, played around with it, decided not to keep it. Re-Installed my old 1080 Ti and now it makes a weird what can only be described as a fast ticking sound, even when the fans aren't moving.
I switched from a receiver/HDMI setup to a USB AMP/DAC setup and now all my games take forever to load for the initial loading screen.
Anyone heard of something like this happening before with USB DAC?
Curious problem that's been happening to me randomly on Windows 10. Sometimes when I wake my desktop rig from sleep, I can't open Chrome, or go into Windows 10 update. Also if I try rebooting it will just hang at the restarting screen until I hit the hard reset on my tower.
Not really sure what...
I'm running a 4790k with a Noctua HSF. I used to have a regular GTX 980 and I would never hear the CPU fan spin up.
I recently switched to a GTX 980 Ti and now I can hear my CPU fan spin up when opening email, deleting lots of files, etc.
I'm scratching my head and don't know what would cause...
I have a Dell 3007WFP-HC, I cleaned the screen with a micro fiber cloth and now I have 1 stuck red pixel in the upper left.
It will go away if I turn off the monitor over night, and comes back after 15 minutes of the monitor being on.
Tried the gentle rub method, the screen fix videos...
I won't be OCing, but I value silence so something that cools good without too much noise. The catch is that the tower + fan can't be higher than 160mm, I can't seem to find anything.
I live in the US, but I want to be able to browse the internet using my friend in Canada's internet access/router so that I have a Canadian IP when browsing.
Is that possible? Would that be considered a VPN or something else?
I was wondering why every single Fry's Electronics near me was out of stock of the G700, then I noticed on Amazon's website it says discontinued by manufacturer on the G700 product page.
Anyone know what the replacement is going to be?
I have two GTX 580s and Core i7 920 OCed to 3.8GHz, and I'm trying to play Crysis 2 with DX11 and high res textures and I'm getting 15 FPS
Tried 1920 x 1200 and 2560 x 1600, 15-20 FPS on both.
Am I doing something wrong? I've never had a SLI setup before. I have the latest WHQL drivers.
Girlfriend upgraded from an old 2004 Toshiba laptop to a Lenovo Ideapad Z570.
Now her wireless internet connection is dropping randomly and frequently, it never dropped on the old Toshiba.
Using a Linksys WRT54GS with the latest firmware.
I have my receiver and a 5.1 setup connected to my PC via HDMI, my receiver has support for 2 additional front high speakers and Dolby Pro Logic IIz. I have 2 extra speakers laying around, is it worth it for games?
I replaced the coax cable on my cable modem with a shorter one, and now my girlfriend keeps getting disconnected from the wireless router. It was working fine before.
I didn't change anything except that cable and my computer doesn't get disconnected, it's wired into the router.
THX's 5.1 setup guide says that the surround speakers should be placed 56 inches behind your listening position, has anyone heard or tried this before?

Desktop System Set Up
Monitor Viewing Distance: There should be a 28 inch viewing distance from your desktop...
Does anyone know any place that sells computer desks that look like the below picture? I need something that has a counter similair to the picture below, so I can put my receiver and center speaker on my desk below my monitor.

Would this allow me to have just 1 display in Win7 and still get sound without having to extend my display onto the receiver in Win7?
Right now I have an Auzentech HTHD sound card, a passthrough cable connects from the GTX 580 to the Auzentech, then the Auzentech connects to the receiver via...
I just got a pair of 595s and have an Auzentech HTHD sound card, I've done some research on what settings are best to use for gaming, but I just came away confused.
Help me please my fellow hard members!
I will be using them almost exclusively for gaming. Also do I even need a headphone amp? I have a Onkyo receiver right now hooked up to my PC, could I just plug the headphones into the receiver?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. My budget can go up to $750
I downloaded and installed the latest Intel chipset drivers for my X58 SLI from EVGA's FTP, they are WHQL. Now I can't resume from sleep? I can hear my computer fans start back up and run, but my screen just stays black.
Has anyone had this happen before? Is there anyway to revert back to...
I have my Onkyo receiver connected to my PC via HDMI to an Auzentech XTHD sound card. Is there any benefit to using HDMI instead of analog cables? Any benefit to analog over HDMI?
Since I'm using HDMI I have to have a second dummy monitor because of the way HDMI works with requiring...
