    Got a Spare $43,000? You Could Spend It All on This Monster Gaming PC

    Nice. I'm no stranger to limitless budget builds, my DIY with off-the-shelf parts is only air-cooled: https://hardforum.com/threads/no-kill-like-overkill.1972570/ $6K for listed parts. Not as shiny as some of the professional liquid custom loop, but gets the job done and looks "good enough"...

    Got a Spare $43,000? You Could Spend It All on This Monster Gaming PC

    Why would I pay for $43K to get a 9700K instead of 9900K? ... Why would I pay $43K anyway?

    No Kill Like Overkill

    Let's begin. Over a decade of building has left me a bit of spare hardware. Setting up the operating room. I'm planning on doing a Frankstein from my HAF-X to the P7. Operation is now in session. Figuring where to put the PCMR logo... 280mm rad with 4x 240mm fans, because why half-ass...

    Looking for a NAS with newbie-friendly GUI

    You're right, I'm looking for a garbage chute kind of backup where it catches any new file, and won't delete the backup even if I delete the main drive. What's your implementation of this as far hardware and software go? My footage is important, but not that important. If my place burns down...

    Looking for a NAS with newbie-friendly GUI

    Additional information: I'm a Windows PC builder for 18 years. I mostly edit 1080p footage with a 1TB SSD. My footage archive currently sits in an 8TB MyBook, so I'm trying to move it to a more robust storage solution, mitigating single point of failure. My experience with command lines is...

    Intel Skylake Core i7-6700K IPC & Overclocking Review @ [H]

    While you're not wrong about the Tri-SLI PCI-E config, doesn't Skylake have 16 PCI-E 3.0 lanes direct to CPU, and up to an additional 20x PCI-E 3.0 from the Z170 chipset? At least that's my impression from the architectural overview: And according to Intel ARK, the 6700k's PCI-E 3.0...

    Petition Asking For Reddit CEO Firing Tops 16k

    The young users are far more tech savvy, dynamic, and well-informed than those who rely on centralized / censored media like the newspaper. You haven't studied the history of how Digg died during the mass exodus to Reddit. This incident is the straw that broke the camel's back as far as...

    Question for Corsair 650D Owners

    Is the front of the case made of metal? I'm thinking about buying the 650D, and then buying magnetic dust filters, and it's important that the front is made of metal. Thanks.

    Titan X sli with 750w psu

    That deserves another explanation: my dual EVGA SC Titan-X's during the Firestrike Ultra benchmark had 107% power target overclocks with EVGA Precision X. 800W is about right, because when I benchmarked them with 100% power target, my system pulled around 840W at the wall.

    Titan X sli with 750w psu

    I have a 3770k at 4.2GHz, and 2x Titan-X's just like you. Here's my system power draw while benchmarking Firestrike Ultra: My PSU is a Corsair AX1200. Back in 2009, a friend of mine stuffed a Radeon HD 4850 into his he pre-built computer, which always has the bare minimum PSU... what...

    New G-SYNC driver is out with new features!

    Upon installing 353.06, my V-Sync and G-Sync global settings is changed. With the above config, does that mean that G-Sync is active until the monitor's refresh limit (144hz) is hit, then V-Sync is enacted? From my testings, it appears to behave that way. I just need an official...

    Nvidia GeForce GTX TITAN X Owners Club

    I'm happy with my Titan-X's knowing these things: 1. It's a fully functioning chip, with all 24 SMM's onboard. I can't stand knowing that I bought cut-down chips. 2. No game out there is going to force my hands in terms of VRAM usage. Ultra textures and draw distance all day long. 3. I've...

    Did you change AA in Nvidia's control panel, or played around with the cfg file? Whenever possible, I'd like to choose 4x AA over 8x AA, as it is good enough for me.

    Bethesda: Why We’re Trying Paid Skyrim Mods On Steam

    1999 just called and they want their lawsuits back. The MPAA and RIAA had truckloads of money and were they able to stop millions of torrents? I think not. The idea of trying to protect digital content with litigation is wishful thinking and those who attempt it has no idea how the world...

    Bethesda: Why We’re Trying Paid Skyrim Mods On Steam

    Bethesda: Why We’re Trying Paid Skyrim Mods On Steam

    Most of the paid Skyrim mods on Steam are either: 1. Rip-offs from Skyrim Nexus. The sellers are parasites illegally uploading free content in hope of a quick buck before someone notices. 2. Honest content creators actively preventing #1 from happening. Mods in Skyrim are awesome...
