    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    Anyone have issues using XMP with this board? Using run of the mill t-force ddr4 and system seemed less stable using XMP. My BIOS is older, I should update it.

    Fry's Electronics permanently closing Feb 24, 2021

    Frys was honestly dead long before covid hit, they had embarrassingly barren shelves for quite some time. Great memories though, our store always had some particularly attractive returns employees.

    Ebay charges tax?

    Yeah it's the worst. You pay tax on what you buy and from the selling side their fees and payments changes make it just that much better.

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    We need guys like MLID to talk about elephants in the room but.... If stock was so low that AIB cards sold out as fast as FE cards, I don't exactly see how nvidia is rolling in the dough any more or less than with other launches.

    IKEA Partners with ASUS' Republic of Gamers Brand for Gaming Furniture

    I shouldn't be so mad about this but Ikea's processes really couldn't handle the demand for furniture well during these past few months. I had to axe my dreams of a big ass ikea desk after striking out through June and July and checking their online stock daily. They also have a history of...

    EVGA B-stock 1080ti $349

    Felt like it was a good time to snag a 1080ti FTW3 which will supplant a 1660ti; honestly overkill since I don't play anything near cutting edge titles but I upgraded to a 1440p 144hz monitor this year. $350 is a stretch in my book but I just can't see the 2 series dropping that hard until the...

    Prolimitech Megahalems on AM4

    I've got an old skool Prolimitech Megahalems heatsink I'd like to adapt to AM4. Prolimitech no longer supports for AM4 but hoping a cooler master or Noctua mounting kit might be a viable solution... anyone have any experience or advice? Board would be b450 Tomahawk. All I have found is this...

    Tom Cruise Thinks You Should Turn Off Motion Interpolation

    This stuff makes me motion sick, walk into Costco every time and I SMH at the awful motion smoothing. As I get older I realize I easily get motion sick though.

    The Nintendo 64 Classic Could Be Arriving Soon

    The real value is the upscaling capability of these things. N64 is not so easy to get the best p.q. out of so this is a much cheaper and easier route.

    Best Buy trade in laptop for $50GC and $100 pixelbook coupon

    Will give this a try; I attempted this same deal last year and basically got told no for a laptop that worked under its own power. Guy treated me like I was a hobo trying to get drug money, I was pretty insulted.

    When will the dam break that holds used GPU prices above new MSRP?

    I am hopeful that the prices will come down, that regular people can grab volta/ampere, and that the crypto market recovers. Unfortunately those things seem mutually exclusive but could also just as easily bat 0 for 0!

    EVGA GTX1070TiSC "Bad" Memory OC

    FE should be Samsung based on what I read. AIB's seem to use Micron or Hynix. I bet your 1070TI is Micron. Hynix seems to be the worst at OC and performance.

    I am always a day late and a buck short but this week I got AM + MPH up on a single 1070; trying this for kicks and grins and to see what it's all about TBH. After some teething pains I have gotten stats now on MPH Stats, autoconverting to ETH and using some tips here in this thread it's...

    Appreciate the MPH + Awesomeminer tips in this thread, the NH reddit is neigh useless. Now that it's been at least a few days... are you guys finding that the awesomeminer profitibility numbers are way off of the actual accruing balance on MPH? About 24h on a 1060 and I don't think I even have...

    Started using NH about a week ago just for kicks and the system goes down right around the time I am supposed to get my first payout. And to think some [H] members were really pushing NH! Ah well, not much lost really.

    Recently gifted a Melos SHA-1 Headphone Amp/Pre-Amp

    Wow you are a lucky mofo! Electro Harmonix Gold pin 6922s are great for the money, if the amp eats them after a few years no big. I like them better than the genalex gold lions and many common vintage tubes. Don't stress over the caps. Pulling the board generally sucks as all connections are...
