    Time for a new case .... need opinions, and a reason not to buy another Lian-Li...

    Current setup (x99, corsair h110, 2 ssds', one platter drive, pair of 780ti's) shoehorned into a Lian-Li PC-B25F. http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-b25f/ This is a 2009 model, and I have come to realize case design has made some pretty monumental leaps since this was released...

    Your favorite intro to a game....

    Most games seem to really give it all they have in the first hour or so of gameplay to get you hooked. What is your most memorable? Mine would have to be Prey. A washed up native american in a shitty town, about to get in a bar fight when "Don't fear the reaper" starts playing on the...

    Witcher 3 780ti SLI 3240 x 1920 performance

    IS POOPIE!!! Wow, I must say no other game has even come close to kicking my setup in its digital junk like witcher 3. basically averaging 19-30 fps with most settings ultra and high, hairworks on the main char only. Both cards showing 90+ % usage and 95% power. Vram usage never went...

    WTS 3 slightly used vg248qe bezels :D

    http://postimg.org/image/x5ghxh0kz/ Trading for winning lottery tickets only! Recently got the nvidia surround + 3 vg248qe + screwdriver and velcro action working the way I like it and I have to say, damn. Gaming in 3240x1920 is awfully nice. 100 times moreso now that the bezels are gone...

    5820k motherboard selection for gaming and overclocking help!

    Finally time for some new silicone! The 2600k will be retired out to its duties on the studding farm after years of having 1.4v crammed in it. Decided to jump on the Haswell-E bandwagon. Can only afford the 5820k. I have done damn near 0 research on motherboards for this chipset (until 15...

    2600k and sandybridge finally starting to run out of steam in SLI

    Been running a sandybridge 2600k since about the time they were launched, and I believe I am starting to see the end of its capabilities.... Just added another 780ti sc and have been messing with surround displays at 3240x1920, and just not getting the performance out of the setup I think I...

    First time SLI 780ti sc question with surround

    Just finished installing my second evga 780TI sc driving 3 vg248qe in portrait. All I did was turn the machine off, stick the other card in with the sli bridge and reboot. Tada, it works. However all three monitors are being driven by my original card. Is there any reason to drive other...

    I have a razor blackwidow (I know haha right) mechanical keyboard, non backlit. What I am looking for is replacement keys with some sort of ridge, or texture to it so I can find it in the dark after hours of gaming in a van down by the river. Usually I pop the keys off and cut something...

    780ti and 3 asus vg248qe displays....

    So all my friends are ditching their 144hz displays in favor of higher res and better color, so as of this weekend ill have 3 of these asus displays for surround. Anyone driving 3 of these for gaming with a single 780ti? Obviously i'll be down on framerate for what I am used to...anyone have...

    Basic info for laptop video card upgrades?

    Was given an alienware m17 r2 "laptop" with some nifty goodies in it. Raid 0, i7 920m, and a pair of 4870 X2 1 gig cards. I'd like to start keeping an eye out for a replacement card, but I am not sure of some of the basic relevant info as it relates to slot designations, size, etc etc...

    No Lichdom Battlemage thread?

    Anyone give this a whirl? Fairly entertaining... feels a little arcady.... Only an hour or so into it. The crafting tutorial is funny in that they use the words crafting and tutorial. Meaning that it consists of "Hay, put stuff you autoloot into these slots and you make other stuff to blow...

    Anyone still overclocking on the asus p8p67pro?

    Have a now unwanted rig I built for a brother a few years back with a p8p67 pro rev 3.0 plus a 2500k. Curious if anyone had much to say about this boards ability to overclock. Tips? Quirks? Any idea what size hammer to use when installing the magic smoke in the box?

    Anyone use the IGP for a second display while gaming?

    Don't see it mentioned much, but anyone using the intel video out on a second monitor on a gaming machine? I take issue with using my 780ti's juice to do anything besides make my framerates do things "that the human eye can't detect" ...so I keep my "slave" 19x10 display running off the...

    Battlefield 3, co-op, google chrome

    hardware updates for usb/sata/lan controllers

    I5 750 Lynnfield overclock question about QPI speed

    Friend of mine asked me to come put an overclock on said chip. After doing a bit of reading I think I have most of the important things figured out. Have him running stable @ 21 x 175 (3675mhz). As I understand it this puts his QPI link speed @ 175 x whatever multiplier in the bios. His bios...

    Fan speed control for a push/pull air setup.

    Currently my CPU fan rpm is being controlled by my motherboard, and does a good job of it. I'd like to add a pull fan full to my heatsink, but I don't want to add a manual controller to keep them sync'd. Are people just daisychaining the cpu fans together and plugging it into the motherboard cpu...

    Anyone go from a 560ti (384 shader) to an SLI setup? (SLI questions as well)

    Title pretty much says it all. I have a 2gig 560ti 384 shader version that does a decent job for my resolution (19x10) .....but I would really like enough unf to keep me at 60 fps most of the time with detail settings on the high side. Looks like I can get another card for around the $265...
