    9700k or 10700k

    I am building a new PC for my nephew. His budget is around $1,000 and I have him in a 9700k with z390, but am debating moving him to 10700k and z490. I believe LGA1200 is dead after this generation, but am not certain. I am going to lend him my 2080ti and sell it to him for $400 if he cannot get...

    Corsair RMA success story

    I had a three year old Corsair AX 860i fail a couple of weeks ago and opened an RMA with Corsair to start a replacement as it has a ten year warranty. The process could not have been smoother. It took about three weeks start to finish and I received a new AX1500i as a replacement. I sent them...

    High Refresh Rate G-Sync Question

    Good evening, I am currently running a Samsung se790c 3440X1440 60Hz monitor and am trying to determine if I will gain any benefit from going to a high refresh rate, GSync curved monitor at the same resolution. The main benefits I am looking for are less tearing, smoothness, etc. I am running a...

    My EK Predator 360 Sprung a Leak

    I am slowly working my way up to a custom loop, but was not quite ready to take the plunge so thought I would try an EK Predator 360 with a pre-filled Titan X Pascal waterblock connected via QDC. Installation was not too bad, temps were good, ran fairly quietly and was running +200 core +500 mem...

    Pascal Titan Clock Speed Not Lowering in 2D

    I have done some OC experimenting with my Titan and found it to be a bit of a dud so have gone back to stock. I will probably try some variant of water soon, but for now just stock air. The problem is that now my card rarely drops the clock speed at idle or in 2d apps. It is running at 1417/5005...

    Samsung 34" Curved vs 100Hz Gsync Curved

    Good afternoon, I am currently using the Samsung 34" curved 60Hz display and am considering moving to one of the 100hz Gsync curved displays. The Acer 34" Predator or the new Asus 34" ROG PG348Q. Considering the Samsung is down to $700-$800 new, I do not think I could get more than $400 for it...

    Kudos to G.Skill

    Just wanted to say how great the G.Skill RMA process is. I had a DIMM that was at least a couple of years old go bad and I filled out the RMA online, got confirmation, sent it in and a week later received the replacement. No hoops, no drama, just easy. I read a fair number of RMA horror stories...

    Samsung vs LG Curved Displays

    I had a refurbished UM95 and really liked the resolution and 21:9 format, but had to send it back due to some minor screen damage and am looking for a replacement. I had high hopes that one of the FreeSync monitors LG announced was going to be 3440x1440, but it looks like it is not to be. I am...

    CF or not to CF

    27" Monitor w/ DP and two 24" Monitors and Eyefinity

    I am not sure where else to ask so when it doubt choose [H]. I am wanting to move to an Eyefinity setup with this ASUS VE276Q monitor for its DP and then two of these ASUS VW246Hs for the sides. My question is: Since although they have the same resolution will they cause problems if Eyefinity...

    GTX280 Sli or 5870

    Long time listener first time caller [H]ere. I am currently running an e8500@3.55Ghz with 4GB DDR2 800mhz, on an eVGA 780i SLI board and a slightly overclocked (exact freq escapes me) BFG GTX280.
