    34" Ultrawide with USB-C hub for both productivity and casual gaming?

    Why not use a DP to usb-c adapter? in any case, do not get the lg 34gk950f-b. Used for a total of approx 250hrs and scanlines have appeared making the monitor unusable.

    3700x 4.3GHz Voltages

    Totally aware of that but once again I'm not touting a 24/7 stable OC as I know for a fact that this isn't whether due to thermal limitations or voltages. P95 is great but since I will never see an all thread AVX load of that nature I don't see the point in running a small FFT test for hours and...

    3700x 4.3GHz Voltages

    I get the same voltages in R20 as I do small FFT P95. R20 uses AVX as well. I just don't want to run any more P95 passes until I get my higher rpm fan for the cpu cooler to see if I can tame the temps.

    3700x 4.3GHz Voltages

    4.4Ghz hit on 1.25v (1.3125v bios) hitting a toasty 90c in r15. I made a single pass of r15 on 1.238v (1.3v bios) but crashed subsequently after. Not sure if this is a 24/7 passable and I wont be testing it unfortunately since I'm pretty thermally constrained at this point. Now I kinda don't...

    3700x 4.3GHz Voltages

    I can give it a shot right now since the suns down (in CA right now). My understanding was VID is what the processor requests and "VR OUT" and "SVI2 TFN" is what is actually being supplied to the CPU.

    3700x 4.3GHz Voltages

    Yeah bought it a month ago. Looks like AMD has really gotten the manufacturing process together then. Auto OC for me seems to overvolt the chip. My ITX cooler can't really handle that TDP so I locked the voltage and tried to see how high I could go.

    3700x 4.3GHz Voltages

    Ran a few tests on a new build I'm working on for a friend and I managed to push my 3700x to 4.3GHz all core @ 1.238v (1.3v bios w/ vdroop). I haven't seen much binning info on the silicon quality of 3700x's and I want to know if this is normal or if my voltage is particularly low. Don't mind...

    LG 34" WQHD 1440p Ultrawide 144hz $896.99

    It's g-sync compatible and 144hz non OC which means you could push it, haven't tried on mine yet Yeah I know it's not a deal but I saw a few people posting WTB's on ultrawides like this and I wanted to help out -- its sold out too everywhere but somehow I got my hands on one

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    The tomahawk at $200 even competes with the top of the line MSI boards in terms of VRM. It's going to be the board of choice unless you're going for some insane OCs

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

    Logitech G29 + Shifter combo @ Rakuten - $234.97 FS

    I have a g29 that I picked up for about the same price used w/ shifter. Killer wheel and you won't get anything better for the price. Personally suggest you get one of these if you are new to sim racing. Also you can do cheap pedal mods for better brake feel and with a rubber band you can get...

    Haswell and Z87 Bundles Now On Sale at Microcenter

    Fry's price match is a joke. I was there for an hour just so the could verify a tigerdirect price and I don't think they will match microcenter because they don't match things with limits ie. microcenter's limit one per household.

    Haswell, Yay or Nay?

    The new Intel Haswell 4770k CPU based on some benchmarks perform slightly faster than the 3770k. Is it worth it to upgrade my 3770k to a 4770k? How much do you think my trusty 3770k is worth? (4.7@1.35v)

    What temps should concern me?

    Personally anything about 70C makes me uncomfortable but it shouldn't damage the card if you not at 70C+ 24/7. I cool mine with an H60 50 bucks can cool your card quite well if you fear too high temps.

    Problem with my GTX670 after installing windows 8

    I have two gtx 680s running windows 8 totally fine. Take out the video card and completely uninstall the nvidia drivers then reinstall. May sound too easy but try it it works most of the time. If you don't have onboard you can try to uninstall the drivers with the 680 still attached.
