    Current state of PhysX? Is it well and truly dead?

    I've come to a point where I'm fortunate enough to have several 'back up' GPUs at my disposal should my Asus Strix GTX1080 fail at a time when crypto miners have run the prices up to astronomical levels. I've got a couple of GTX 660s, a GTX 770, a GTX 780, a GTX 980, and I think even a lowly...

    A dud 8700k? (overclocking, that is)

    I wasn't sure if I should drop this here, or in the overclocking subforum... oh well, here is as good a place as any. Anyway.... Did anyone else get an 8700k and wind up with an overclocking turd? Here I see everyone else getting 5ghz with moderate voltages (1.3 to 1.35v, sometimes lower!)...

    (Rant) Asrock Z370M Pro4 mATX - I hate this board...

    This is mostly just a random rant.... Do you ever get a board and just feel like it hates you and you're going to hate it - almost right from the first time you power it up? I have had this Asrock Z370M Pro4 up and running for barely over a day, and I absolutely loathe it already. (For the...

    2017 (MU) Samsung 6xxx series TV on PC report...

    So I took advantage of the Black Friday sales last year and picked up a 50" Samsung UN50MU6070 from Best Buy.
