    LG CX 48" 55" 65" 77" 4K OLED TV 120Hz VRR HDMI 2.1 - Microcenter (Refurbished)

    I mentioned it in a previous post, but if you missed out on a refurb and still want a CX, make an offer over on Greentoe. Offer the refurb price and you’ll likely get a counter offer for about $100 more or so. That said, there’s also no tax or shipping on GT, so you may even come out ahead of...

    LG CX 48" 55" 65" 77" 4K OLED TV 120Hz VRR HDMI 2.1 - Microcenter (Refurbished)

    Personally, I think you’re better off going through Greentoe for a CX right now. I just got a counter offer for a 77” CX for $2850. That’s with no tax, so if I take my local sales tax into account, it’s like purchasing locally for ~$2600. That’s for a brand new tv from an authorized reseller, so...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Mine still is showing backordered though I never received the original delay email. I ordered a 5900 at 11:18pm cst. Luckily, I have a cpu sitting at home that was delivered from Amazon today, so I’m in no personal rush. The only reason I’ve kept the preorder open is because a friend wants it.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Oh good, a whole extra studio to help pump out $1000 ships while the actual “game” flounders around for a few more years.

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    Since I’m still waiting on my cpu, I emailed Arctic and asked if I could have the rev3 mounting hardware for my rev2 AIO. They said they were getting some in the next few days and would send me some for free. Worth hitting them up if you want the new clips. They are supposedly much easier to...

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Well, I managed to get this order in tonight. I basically have 2 preorders between this and BH. I have a feeling I’ll get my BH order first, though, since I was early enough to not get a delay email. Even assuming I’d get the Amazon order well before January (pretty much every Amazon order I’ve...

    They’ve always sold out instantly, so it hasn’t stopped anyone.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Newegg has gotten a couple of 5900 and 5950 restocks, but they went the scummy route and only sold them as part of bundles (ie force you to also buy some other crap item that they can’t sell otherwise).

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    As an update to my previous comment about BH preorders, a few people on the discord now had their 5900x orders ship. It seems like people that ordered in the first 5 minutes had theirs shipped yesterday.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    A couple people on a discord I’m on got 5950s shipped from BH. They were both in the first 5 minutes. No one from the discord has had a 5900 shipped from BH. Even people that never got the delay email that went out (myself included).

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I ordered about 20 min after it went up. The fact that I haven’t gotten an email is probably a good thing.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Based on B&H saying they’re expecting a shipment on the 15th as well as some people’s expected delivery dates on other sites, I think it’s a pretty safe guess that most stores are expecting their first big restock around then. It also lines up nicely with the 6000 series gpus launch. It would...

    Arctic Liquid Freezer II rev3

    The one I bought about a month ago is still revision 2. Rev 3 must be super, super new. I wonder if the mounting changes are the ones the mentioned they were working on to GN in response to GN saying they felt it was a little awkward to mount compared to others.

    Arctic Liquid Feezer II 240mm = $99.99. 280mm = $109.99. 420mm = $152.97.

    They do. In the GN reviews, the Arctic 280 barely gets edged out by the EK 360. Because of that result, GN got a hold of an Arctic 360 and found that it slightly beat the EK 360 to retake the top spot. All the 420 is going to do is push their lead out further. It still seems like a “because we...

    Do I need an RGB controller for 6 noiseblocker NB eLoop X fans with my MSI mainboard?

    Your going to need either a controller or some rgb (3pin) splitters. Your Corsair AIO is also going to have to use their icue software to control it’s RGB.

    Thanks for the pic. I’m actually putting one in the same case, so I’m glad to see it fits with a little room to spare.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    I will be attempting to get a 5900x the moment it’s available. I have everything else just waiting for the cpu, so I really hope I can snag one. I’ll stay up late, wake up early, etc if I need to. I’m fairly skeptical, though. The bot situation for new hardware is completely out of hand these days.

    Gigabyte X570 AORUS Elite Prime Day Deal ($159.99)

    I was tempted (also on the Tomahawk wait list), but it doesn’t look like this board has Q-Flash. Since it’s going to need an update before I can pop a 5900x in it, I’d rather have the USB bios flash option.

    CD PROJEKT RED Mandates Six-Day Work Weeks Ahead of Cyberpunk 2077’s Launch

    I just got done working a mandatory 6 days per week for about 2.5 months straight. We were extremely behind, so we were in a crunch to get things back on track. It was the first time my company has ever enforced it since I've worked here, so it's not like this happens all the time or anything...

    Jensen Huang announces Ampere prices

    Same. I don't regret buying a 2080ti (I've had it for nearly 2 years), but I really was not expecting to see Nvidia price their new gen the way they did. That combined with the seemingly unprecedented performance jump really crushed the resale value of last gen cards. It's definitely a situation...

    Nvidia 3000 Series pricing and specs

    In both in-game benchmarks and in gameplay for games w/o a built in benchmark. edit: Keep in mind these are Nvidia chosen games, so they may be absolute best case scenario. It’s worth noting that DF mentions that and still says they’d ever really seen this big of a generational jump before.

    Nvidia 3000 Series pricing and specs

    Digital Foundry put out a video that shows the 3080 running about 80% faster than a 2080 in non-RTX games. In RTX situations, it got a little closer to the 2x number Jenson went on about. Either way, 80% over a 2080 is ridiculous. A 2080ti is what, 30% faster than a 2080? So you’re still looking...

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS exclusive)

    Slowing down and being deliberate is definitely the way to go most of the time. I think it’s kind of cool that way since your uncle is always telling you to control your emotions and master yourself. Kinda fits the whole samurai theme. That does change a bit depending on the armor you’re...

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS exclusive)

    Yeah....this is not a souls-like game by any means. The only thing it has in common with that genre is that it’s a 3rd person action game. Outside of that, they don’t really share much. It’s way more on The Witcher 3 and recent Assassins Creed category than anything.

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS exclusive)

    This game is going to put Sucker Punch into Sony’s A tier developer list (a la Naughty Dog). It’s even being praised over in Japan. It’s one of only 4 Western made games to get a perfect score from Famitsu (the biggest game review outlet in Japan). It’s selling so well over there that they are...

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS exclusive)

    It becomes fairly natural once you swap between stances for a couple of hours. The game starts you with only one, and you earn 3 more through playing. That eases you in, so by the time you earn another stance, you are used to the previous ones. You could just use a single stance the whole time...

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS exclusive)

    This is my personal GOTY as of right now. CP2077 is going to have to be extremely special to surpass this game for me. Honestly, Sucker Punch has a masterpiece on their hands. They’ve taken the best parts of recent open world games like The Witcher 3, AC Odyssey, and RDR2, streamlined it, and...

    Zen 3 CPUs - 500 Series or Newer Chipsets Only

    Per this post on Reddit, if your board supports BIOS flashback via USB, you'll be able to flash whatever BIOS you want, so it's not a one way street for everyone.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    I just got gold for the GRAU, and the mounted molds were the roughest part for sure. I did it mostly in ground war. Basically just forced myself to mount wherever I possibly could.

    Zen 3 CPUs - 500 Series or Newer Chipsets Only

    Honestly, MSI is in a bad spot if AMD completely locks out Zen 3. MSI is still directly advertising that the MAX boards will support all future AM4 products. I feel like worst case, you're probably going to at least get some money out of MSI from a false advertising suit.

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    Weren't the Unify and Ace released much later? I believe all of the original MSI X570 boards were pretty garbage, and the Unify and Ace came out and corrected the issue.

    Ryzen 9 3900X or 3950X - $399.99 or $687.99 from Newegg on eBay

    This is even more tempting now that AMD is saying no Ryzen 3 on anything except 500 series boards.

    Zen 3 CPUs - 500 Series or Newer Chipsets Only

    Well shit, there goes all my upgrade plans. It even fucks my backup plan of buying a 3900x on the cheap because now those chips are going to retain a much higher value due to being the best for anyone with a 400 series board. Damnit, this sucks.
