    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    That's logic, most people don't build retro systems for that reason.

    Xbox series X

    I was able to get a series x from 2 different retailers, providing one doesn't get canceled, it could wind up a Christmas gift, or I may just sell one to help pay for the other. It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay.

    Xbox series X

    Best Buy didn't make it available on time, Walmart sold out quickly and Amazon kept trying to sell me a dog. But the Xbox site while I had to keep on clicking to get past the errors, came through. Now to start looking for a new TV that supports VRR and 120hz.

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    Mouser electronics or digikey are good places to start for replacement capacitors. Be sure to get the right size and leg spacing. You should also try and stick with the 105 degree rating as well.

    For the 96% who failed to get a 3080

    Do you think AMD will be able to release Big Navi with stable dirvers? Seems they've had a difficult time recently with getting stable drivers that don't crash/black screen.

    Am I asking too much for my socket 939 motherboards and such?

    None of that is "enthusiast" grade, so I would consider dropping the pricing if you're wanting to sell. Otherwise just keep it. As a fan of Abit boards, I'm holding on to my AN8 and AN8-SLi (Opteron 165 @ 2.7Ghz) as well as a quad9 gt and P35 pro as they won't fetch much and I like to tinker...

    Nvidia made it easy to wait for team red, but I'll be sticking with team green, didn't pay too much for this damn g-sync monitor for nothing! But really, Nvidia screwed the pooch on this launch to try and get in front of AMD for sure!

    Does the 570 chipset fan make noise?

    Aorus Ultra user from release weekend. only hear it when under load using the quiet preset. I did replace the TIM on the southbridge which lowered temps by 10 degrees +/-

    Awesome deal (not) on an Intel core i9-7900X

    What are you worried about, he only has 5 negative feedback in the last month, nothing to worry about :)

    X570 Chipset Fans...

    I did this on my GB x570 Ultra and it had a positive affect. The thermal gum they use lasts, but is not good for thermals overall IMO. This is no different than any other gear with a heatsink in that I always replace the thermal paste/pad/gum. Did this on my xbox one x when upgrading to a hybrid...

    Retro time, beige time, VooDoo2 SLI time!!!!

    I know the [H] isn't the forum for retro, but considering I was able to complete it with the help of a fellow [H]'er I'm gonna post it here too. After tossing in the towel on trying to resurect my old PA-2013 and K6-3+ I wound up with this! Abit BE6-II v2 with a PIII 800 and 384MB PC133 with...

    Legendary Celeron 300A overclocked @ +700 MHz

    300a and a BH6, this began my love for Abit boards. I remember having to flash the bios to get higher voltages out of it in order to overclock. This combo got me out of my pa-2013/K6-2 300 and boy was it an upgrade.

    "The rest of the story", LOL. You I knew I saw the top one at Vogons. I would be curious about the content of the current setup, specifically the wall mount and half height racks.

    that's good to hear, I was about to buy Eternal and realized I never played 2016, so about half way through it and enjoying it thoroughly.

    Is this a good choice for a Xbox One X system?

    Not like Xbox One isn't in the description, lol. but yeah, any headset will work with the newer controller with 3.5mm jack. volume is lacking though, I have Arctis 7's and running them through the controller is meh at best.

    Is this a good choice for a Xbox One X system?

    I put a 2TB Firecuda in my one x, it started life in my 500gb one that I traded in for the x. It's been that way for about 2 years now and not one issue.

    Is this normal for rtx cards ?

    usually it's thick crap that dries out and prevents contact with the hsf. xbox 1x had the same crap. all dried out and flaky.

    Build Check 3950x

    I can say that the mobo is solid, have had mine since release and it's been rock solid and stable with my 3700x. Not a fan of AIO coolers and could easily recommend nh-d15 or similar. I picked up a 110i for my rig when it was rocking a 6700k and it was loud in order to be effective, and was...

    Is this normal for rtx cards ?

    100% agree! examples: 1. x570 chipset cooler on aorus ultra: removed factory tim, replaced with mx4 dropped 7-10 degrees 2. EVGA 1080 FTW2: dropped 5-10 degrees and stays right at 2000Mhz when gaming with quiet fan profile set. 3. xbox 1 x: fan would get audible when gaming, after it barely...

    Anything I need to know before seating my new 3600?

    You can also look up the pin out and find all the ground pins, then remove half of them, this makes the CPU lighter and thus faster......

    HOT ! Various 1TB NVMe with coveted E12 Controller $135 aprox retail

    I have both, bought the inland during the x570/3000x launch and then during black weekend bought the sx8200. and the inland is generally the faster drive at similar capacities. but by +- 5%.

    I accidentally broke a $2500 video card... like an idiot

    Not worth the time, this guy builds some nice water cooling rigs, but otherwise is hard to watch. For gods sake he thought it would be OK to drill through a Mobo PCB.

    Need X570 motherboard recommendation

    I picked up the Aorus Ultra on release weekend with a 3700x and it's been solid through all the bios updates, including betas. It did "suffer" from the ramping up and down thermal issues in early bios's and drivers. but that's all been addressed.

    6700k wont go over 4.4Ghz?!

    yeh, my 6700k was comfortable all day at 4.4Ghz, but anything above required too much voltage and was never used for more than benching. Delidded even!
