    Front USB Issue with Lian Li Lancool Mesh

    I'm having this weird issue with a Lian Li Lancool Mesh II case with the front USB ports. There are only 2 ports on the top, and they are both USB 3, one is occupied by a Logitech universal receiver which I use for a trackball mouse. The problem occurs anytime I plug a USB stick in there to copy...

    AMD vs Nvidia Encoders

    I've been using the Nvenc encoder for a while now and it's been pretty decent, but with the launch of the new Navi 2 cards, I'm interested in switching over but wanted to test the AMD encoder out first. With my Nvidia card, I've been using the following settings to record gameplay; Nvenc h.264...

    MSI already updating 3080 Trio with a Version 2 ?

    Watching JayzTwoCents recent video where he mentions that MSI has or is coming out with a version 2 of it's 3080 Trio card, but MSI did this silently. Did they change the CAPS from POS to all MLCC's and if so where does this leave user's who literally just paid $900 for one? That would be a...

    10600k at 98-99c

    I just installed a 10600k on a MSI Gaming Edge WiFi with a fresh install of W10. I slapped a Dark Rock Pro 4 on it and according to HWiNFO64 temps idle on the desktop are 35-36c.

    X570 Chipset and Fan - GPU blocking air

    So I noticed that the position of the PCH fan on my ASUS Hero is directly under the GPU. I’m using a 2080ti and it’s sitting directly over top of the fan, covering near 90% or more and the GPU is sitting flush. If that fan can breathe at all, it’s pulling in hot air which can’t be good. Also the...

    Corsair HX1000i fan staying off - 55c+ temps

    I'm using a Corsair HX1000i PSU, and while it does have the zero RPM fan feature, I don't think it ever turns on. During a normal CS:GO game, I can't even leave my hand on the PSU it's getting that hot, and yet the fan reports 0rpm still. If I can't even leave my hand on the PSU shroud, the...

    10th Gen CPU's - Shortage or Demand causing almost instant sell outs?

    I've been trying to acquire a 10600K CPU for a while now, but as many have also found it's proving difficult to acquire one for MSRP, and not some jacked up price from a third party reseller, that being if anyone has any stock to begin with. This afternoon I just randomly refreshed a Newegg...

    It leaked.

    While I’m using the system yesterday for a few hours I kept looking at the tank, and notice it’s getting slightly lower. But whatever... I chalked it up to bubbles making there way through the system, which I've read happens so ok. Fast forward a few more hours, it's midnight, I check on the...

    What am I doing wrong?

    I ordered some PETG to practice bending before I attempt a PETG build next week. This is my first attempt at bends or hardline all together and so I ordered 8/12 and 10/12 just to practice on, but so far I’ve found 8/12 thickwall the easiest to bend, although it just takes longer to heat up...

    3rd WC loop to bring down 85c temps

    My sons Ryzen 3600 system was running at 85c under load and heavy gaming, this with a Hyper 212 and 2 fans exhausting at full speed. Granted his room is the hottest in our place with direct sunlight in 34c weather but still, I’ve been meaning to slap a block on his Ryzen rig. This is my 3rd WC...

    Rainbow Six Siege - Finally hit 100 Clearance with 207hrs of PvE only

    Finally hit clearance level 100 on R6 Siege which isn't a big deal probably, except I did it only playing PvE. 207hrs to be exact, with 95% of those hours only playing the house Map on Terrorist Hunt Realistic. On average I would say 12min per match, give or take, so that works out to approx...

    OBS recorded playback is choppy only during the Doom Eternal gameplay parts, desktop fine?

    I recently installed the OBS recording software and tested recording of Doom Eternal, first on a 9900K paired with a 2080ti. Playback of the recording was perfect. Then I recorded the same game, playing on a R5 3600 paired with a 5600 XT. Playback of the recording was fine, *until I got into the...

    Hey guys, getting my first loop together, i thought I had ordered the right fittings and tube but the tubing is super tight to get onto the conpression fitting. I ordered EK Torque STC 10/16 (5/8) fittings, and for my soft tube, I bought 10/16 3/8 ID 5/8 OD soft tubbing. But it just seems really...

    major 3700x boosting issues

    My 3700x is having some really really wacky boosting issues, this after trying to first undervolt, but then setting it back to auto after I got horrible results, ...yes I know... shocking, but now it won't stabilize.

    Comparable 40-50" monitor to Asus PG65UG

    Any reccomendations for a monitor like the PG65UQ but in the 40-50" range. I sit about 2-3 ft away from my monitor now (PG279Q), and on my wall I use a 40" TV which I sit about 7ft away from, so anything massive doesn't make sense. Passing my 279Q onto my father so I'm looking for a good...

    New HP Probook LCD replacement not powering on

    I have a HP Probook 450 G3 with a broken (pressure point) LCD, it's just the regular 1366 x768 res. Since the 1080p screen was an option at the time, I went ahead and ordered an AU 1080p replacement screen instead. Now I know you're "suppose" to keep the LCD the same size etc... but I thought...

    Looking to pick up a new display for 70% gaming, 20% movies, 10% command line use. Don't want to spend more than $500, but I'd prefer something with IPS, although if there is a TN panel with very good color reproduction and response for gaming I'd consider. Minimum size I'm looking for is 24"...

    Why is there a fairly large fps gap with certain cards between reviewers?

    I've been looking at a few RX 580 reviews, and I noticed on guru3d the RX 580 MSI review has the 580 on par with the 1060 on GTA V. But over on Anand tech, the 580 trails far behind the 1060 on GTA V with what seem's like the same "very high" settings, but the 1060 is ahead by 15fps. If you're...

    Rainbow Six Siege & Gameworks on AMD cards

    Because Rainbow Six Siege uses NV's gameworks tech, are there any differences running Siege on AMD cards? Less debris, bigger explosions, missing features, etc...? obviously it's going to be better optimized (game works) when running on nv hardware, but besides that I just wanted to know if...
