I'll post some photos and benchmarks of this budget entry level gaming notebook featuring CPU by AMD Ryzen 5 4600h paired with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650.
This is considered a modern entry level gaming notebook. Built by Acer with selected storage and memory upgrades by me.
This notebook is...
I got this notebook for under $300 on sale.
I tried a samsung 970 EVO and it would not recognize it in the BIOS and when doing a clean install of Windows 10 no drive was found and I couldn't find any drivers to recognize it during install so I tried a 860 EVO M.2 and it was recognized in the...
This block was higher than Ek a few weeks ago. Comes with high end Fujipoly thermal pad. Only water block maker that I know of that includes Fuji poly thermal pad with block. LoOKs like legit high end block deal for high end video card...
$10 off code BRY129391 $339.99 plus S&H.
Not really a hot deal but for those that want this CPU ASAP it is an option right now.
To be honest I have had some bad experiences with TD and I would...
Think it lasted about 3 years. Died all of the sudden wasn't sure why my system wouldn't boot, system was unstable during windows 8 updates and I blamed MS at first, Lol. I thought my mb died. After some trouble shooting figured out my Swiftech MCP 655 siezed up and died. Had about 13...
Buy Apple ipad mini in store and get a $100 gift card + $50 in holiday cash $10 coupons.
If you buy something for at least $1 more you get $60 in holiday cash coupons.
Seems like a good deal for new Apple Ipad product.
I'm thinking about returning my 290x. I bought the Sapphire brand and at the time I ordered it the Sapphire WEB site stated that the card supported TRIXX voltage control. Got the card and even on the box it states the same thing.
So I'm getting close to my 30 day return window. I like the...
NVIDIA fans I know it is hard to except but the 290X is the best gaming card money can buy right now.
Granted the 290x is so new and with BIOS and Voltage control and driver improvement the 290x can only get more wins as the world's #1...
This is the first time I have done a power out put test, if I have made errors in my calculations please correct me. :)
When I got my 290X I didn't check the PSU requirements and assumed that my Seasonic Platinum 660XP PSU could handle it but when I found out AMD required 750W PSU I worried...
Got mine mounted in my mini-ITX build and it is working decently with single Monster 240x radiator which is shared with 4770k.
290x prepped with Fujipoly Xtreme thermal pad on memory IC and Fujipoly Ultra on VRM.
CL Liquid Ultra gpu die.
The block with the back plate which...
Post your ASIC scores, benchmarks, over clocking tweaks, cooling mods, ect.
My card Sapphire 290x.
ASIC score 72%.
Stock clocks on the 290x 3dmark11 with stock heat sink scores over P14000.
Have EK block and will water cool this card soon. Just...
I have a 290X that I am going to be running in my sig rig below and I'm concerned my PSU may not be enough.
From Sapphire's WEB site:
Seems awfully high for a single video card.
I have a...
I got lucky and acquired a 290x and will be getting an EK acrylic and copper block for it ASAP but in the mean time I am going to water cool the GPU and slap some aluminum heat sinks on the PCB hot spots.
Here is the card and parts that I will be working with.
I really DON'T like the stock...
Its not available. 290X has been showing coming soon for a long time.
What is the hold up?
I'm thinking there must...
Then with the release of the Z87 chipset Gigabyte added the word Plus to the Ultra Durable 5 line of mother boards.
Ultra Durable 5 standard was IR3550 VRM parts.
The mathematical logic of the word plus is to add to the existing...
I got out of The LID.
Into the light.
Pure Razor IHS removal.
Delidded no IHS direct core mount.
Same water cooling as before.
Same BIOS settings as before.
Coolaboratory Liquid Pro TIM between DIE and Block.
Tech from Asus just emailed me about problems I have been having with instability in booting and poor signal quality.
I was told Asus is in the process of revising the card with a new chip that is compatible with Z87.
This is it...
I don't care what store you bought your 4670k/4770k at.
Please post batch number, location made, cache speed vs over clock speed, operating performance results and what mother board you are running it with.
CPU-Z and real temp screen shots under Prime or Intel Burn test are appreciated...
Even with an over clocked Haswell at 4.8GHZ its not looking like an earth shattering performing video card.
I know many people here will think this synthetic benchmark is insignificant but to me and...
From Russia with love thanks to Dragonheart from Techpowerup.
Still early but showing good results so far.
Lots of good HD7XXX over clocking info in that thread.
Found some time today to enjoy some custom water cooling tweaking.
Bummer that nobody makes a custom water block for the Sapphire Vapor X HD7950 but I have found a way to water cool it by modifying a XSPC New Edition HD7970 RAZER water block. I got the name from a similar mod that I did to...
If you need a good wireless gaming mouse the G700 is one of the best.
Not really hot but definitely warm.
This is the Tahiti version. Can be cross fired with a HD79XX series card.
Total discount of $25 off the MSRP price of $269.99.
Doesn't really seem like that hot of a price considering...
MiT X 5 Pronounced mighty x five.
Have been thinking about building a mini itx build for awhile and finally decided to do it. My build is small and large at the same time.
Here is the initial parts list.
1 x Alphacool NexXxoS XP³ Light - Acetal Edition CPU block
This card looks beast. If you are looking for a well made HD7950 built on a reference HD7970 PCB with many high quality water block choices this card looks like a great choice.
