    I may just have the slowest running system with a 2080ti

    So I'm waiting for my Area 51m to arrive, and I purchased an Alienware graphics amplifier to throw my 2080ti in. The thought is that when I'm at home I can dock the laptop and play on my ultrawide setup. I basically sold all of my gaming hardware and consolidating down to one device (very long...

    Samsung producing 10nm-class 32GB DDR4 SoDIMMs for laptops

    I just ran across this article and found it interesting. Samsung mass producing 10nm-class 32GB DDR4 SoDIMMs for gaming laptops https://www.techspot.com/news/74852-samsung-mass-producing-10nm-class-32gb-ddr4-sodimms.html Of course this will be very expensive but I’d love to get my hands on...

    Rebuilt Water loop and + GPUs how are these temps?

    So this is not a humble brag or anything of the sort. I honestly don't know how "good" these temps are. I haven't spent a lot of time tuning my 5960x but it seems like a below average chip. Loop: 2x Alphacool XT45 Rads (push / pull) 2x D5 Pumps in serial EK Supremacy CPU Block 2x EK 1080Ti GPU...

    Possibly Rust, may need to replace entire loop (minus pumps)

    So shame on me.... I've ran distilled water + silver kill coil in the same loop for about 2 years without draining or filling (except when I added GPU blocks about half way in) Yes I probably should have drained it, ran something (vinegar?) through it, rinsed it, and put in a fresh kill coil...

    Which 1080ti to buy for custom water loop

    So I'm at a point of indecision. I sold off my air cooled 1080's for a decent amount and I'm looking to put two cards back in my system on a custom loop. I was thinking of ordering the EVGA 1080Ti FTW3 cards and buying EK's block for them, but I realized that I almost never get a decent...

    1080 SLI Fans "revving" back and forth

    So first thing, the cards work great at 1440p. Secondly, during gameplay I hear the fans revving every couple of seconds or so. It will go up for about 5 seconds, then come down for a while. I tried applying a manual fan in the EVGA precision X tool and the manual fan will work, but I'll still...

    Considering a GTX 1080 to hold me over, but have questions...

    So right now I don't have any GPUs at all, save for the one in my gaming laptop. I'm considering buying one GTX 1080 to hold me over for now. I game on a 2560x1400 165hz GSync display. Do you think this would be adequate? I don't mind turning down a setting or two. I could optionally buy two...

    Question about Speakers I purchased... Klipsch

    So I had $3700 in store credit at best buy. My Epson 5030UBe kicked the bucket and I needed to replace it along with getting a nice home theater audio system. I picked up the following: 2x R-28F floor standing 1x R-25C center 2x R-15M Bookshelfs (for surround) 1x R-12SW Sub Onkyo TX-NR656 AVR...

    Unsure if memory pads from ek wb are hitting my 980Ti

    So I've got three 980TIs on EK waterblocks in my main rig. My concern is that it didn't look like all of the thermal pads for my memory modules were making good contact between the block and the card. I tried to have a memory overclock of +100 but (the only game) Fallout 4 would crash every...

    Considering a Xeon-D 1540 for ZFS vs. IvyBridge-EP E5

    So I have a question. I have an ASRock Extreme 11 motherboard lying around. It was an expensive board new ($600) because of the 8-port LSI raid controller (using 8 PCIe 3.0 lanes) and two PLX switches. I was contemplating buying an E5-2630v2 and some DDR3 ECC Ram and using this as the system for...

    GT72S monitor blinks black every 5-30 seconds

    So I just got my GT72S MSI laptop with a Gsync display and a small problem. I've played two games with this so far and it seems at somewhat random intervals it blinks to black for a split second and comes back. The graphics are not stuttering and the laptop fans are not running hard. I haven't...

    Trying to figure out what tablet / laptop to sell / buy

    So I've got the hardware in my sig right now. I game at 4k on my main rig, and at 1080p on a projector on my portable system. I use a lot of portable stuff at work but they aren't work devices per se. Background: I've had two of the 8GB ram / 256GB Surface Pro 3's. I sold the first one...

    Weird problem with touchscreens plugged into power in basement

    So this may need to go into GenMay (I'm a subscriber) but not sure. I've noticed that any piece of hardware I plug into the power (or in the case of the USB powered ones, into my desktop) that all of my touch screens go whacky when I touch them. This doesn't happen anywhere else in the house...

    Did an unexpected upgrade

    Well after water leaked from a custom made water block while the system was on it was time to replace some things. It was time to retire some x79 components and move up! I returned my laptop and performed some upgrading. New Parts: 5960x @ 4.6GHz 64GB of DDR4 - 2400 EVGA Supernova T2...

    I need to have a different tubing size for one run in my loop

    I run 1/2 ID tubing to all parts of my Loop. My loop order is as follows: Res -> Dual pump top RAD 1 -> Heatkiller XL Mutli Block (4 GPUs) -> RAD 2 -> CPU -> Res I'm adding a motherboard chipset block and a vreg block. The chipset block is the problem. The tubing just barely fits between two...

    On the fence about new Retina Mac Pro purchase

    So I've went and purchased another 15" retina Mac pro. I like the design, the OS, the portability, and the light gaming that I can do with it. I can spin up a couple of VMs and still have room to do whatever. That being said, I'll most likely return it and wait for the latest model of Mac...

    Suggestions for Water Cooled 4930k and 4 Titans

    (So given the system in my signature) I just added a 4th Titan I picked up used and I'm looking to "finish" this PC. My temps so far seem to be doing well, but I did buy a dual pump top and another pump because I plan on adding some custom made Vreg and chipset blocks and I'm worried about flow...

    Question about Loop maintenance

    So I've had my distilled water running a kill coil for about a year now. Fluid still seems to be the same color (didn't think it would change). It runs in a basement with no sunlight whatsoever. No coloring has been added to the fluid and the tubing is black and not transparent. I'm about to...

    Heat killer Titan Waterblocks, mixing copper with Nickel

    So due to an error on my part a yeah ago, when I was purchasing used Titans on the forums here I mistook the color of the waterblock on someone's already water cooled Titan that I was purchasing. I have right now three Titans with Nickel heatkiller blocks and I have a 4th copper Titan water...

    Question regarding Quad Channel Memory Bandwidth with 8 DIMMS installed

    So this may seem like a simple question but so far I haven't able to answer it with my own testing. Using the rig in my sig (2011 socket) I was experimenting with different RAM amounts. I needed 64GB for all of the VM stuff I was doing at the time (and, well, could use it again now). I...

    i7 4930k overclocking

    I'm running with the rig in the sig. Question about my overclock. I'm running LLC at level 2 (Level 1 being no droop) and running at about 1.335v fixed vcore. At 4.7 this is rock solid and doesn't seem like a bad chip or overclock results. That being said I would like to try for 4.8GHz 24/7 if...

    Buy two more RT-AC66U or replace with RT-AC68U

    I'm moving into a house (first time home buyer) and I want to setup multiple Asus routers for AP mode only on the main floor and upstairs (all major gear will be in the basement.) I'm contemplating getting two more RT-AC66U routers to work as access points. I also saw that the RT-AC68U is out...

    My 4770k and my 4930k - What to do

    I'll try and keep this brief... So my previous 3930k bit the dust last year, and with my protection plan from a retailer I was able to upgrade to a 4930k. Great! About 6 months ago my ASRock extreme x79 extreme 11 took a dive (which I find out later may not have actually been the case)...

    UP2414Q - DP 1.2 - Lower resolutions gone

    Interesting if anyone else has noticed this on their 4k displays. Not sure if this changed with a driver change or not, but anytime I have the monitor setup in 1.2 mode and I can't go lower than 2048x768. If I turn off DP 1.2 on the monitor I can do any lower resolution. I've done a few...

    Overclock suddenly fell apart - 4930k - ASrock

    So I'm referring to the main system in my sig (4930k, ASrock extreme 11). I booted up my system after a few weeks of sitting and it is very unstable. Ran memtest overnight, did 2.5 passes without issue (overclock on, but no men O/C as I don't run one). Updated the UEFI, put everything back to...

    Single rail 1500w PSU suggestions

    So I've noticed my SilverStone 1500w power supply isn't cutting it for my over clocked Titans. I'm drawling too much off of their weirdly set up 12v rails. If this was a single rail PSU then I wouldn't be having issues. So I'm looking at purchasing two power supplies. An option would be the...

    Just ordered my Dell UHD 24 Monitor UP2414Q

    So I remember the press release saying something about the monitors were available in the Americas "now" but worldwide on December 16. Well I decided to give Dell a call and at first they couldn't find it, but then the customer service rep said he would go check his point of sale system. Sure...

    Not Bragging - Is this a decent clock on my 4930k? (and other questions)

    So I'm not sure where the 4930k's lie on the bell curve for overclocking. I can do 4.7GHz at 1.370v (LLC level 2 - level 1 being the highest) my core temps are around the low 60's (peak 65). A bit more comfortable clock, 4.6GHz at 1.280v (LLC level 2 - level 1 being the highest). Core temps...

    Can't Decide / 3-way 780 or 2-way 780 TI (for now)

    Question. I had 3-way 780 SLI earlier and I returned it when I realized that the 780 TI's were coming out. The 3-way system seemed to perform very well (gaming mostly at 2560x1600 or 1920x1080 @ 144hz) Since the 780 doesn't support 4-way SLI I also decided to take it back (and the 780 TI...

    Advice on optimizing for a twitch shooter

    Intel CPU / PCIe Lanes / 4-way SLI

    Okay so this topic balances between Nvidia video cards and Intel CPU's but probably should be in this spot since I'm between CPUs. So I've got the two systems in my sig (updating mobile computer sig line, now a 4770k and Asus Maximus Extreme z87, 2400MHz DDR3). And I'm going to go 3-way /...

    Dual PSUs and problem waking from S3

    So I've got two PSUs installed using the mod right dual PSU cable. All goes well during normal system use. When I wake the computer up from S3, occasionally I'll start to get the red screen of death. This tells me that my nvidia cards are going nutty (usually). The only thing plugged into my...

    3930k and 64GB Ram - Bare with me

    So questions for you all. I have a 3930k normally with 32GB ram (Corsair Vengance 1600 kits) and I added another one for 64GB ram. I do a lot of work with VMs and I need ram badly. Problem is, seems that memtest fails whenever I have more ram than 32GB installed (and yes I know which first...
