    5900x VID at > 1.45?

    I feel a little better. I would hope to see more of what that chart calls "Desktop Idle". I mean if I stare at CoreTemp long enough, I might see a couple blips of ~1.0v. But probably spending 80-90% of the time at 1.45-1.48v, not doing anything. Thought Asus might be up to something weird to...

    5900X $500 on Amazon

    Funny how we all have our own little things. I figured, if the consoles have 8 cores, I wanted 12 "just cause" lol. I wanted the 5900x since release. I already had to mutter to myself last gen, when I had a "lowly" i7 4790k, the consoles at least had crappy Jaguar cores, and I at least had 8...

    Any Reason Still to NOT get a Liquid Freezer 2 for AM4?

    Thanks guys. Ultimately I only waited a day or two and got one. With it being the last purchase, I def had ants in my pants. I got the 420 version. It was easy enough to mount by myself. Read some weirdness about needing an extra hand, maybe with a different rev or something (I got the 4). The...

    5900x VID at > 1.45?

    I had been out of the game for a bit. Did a crash course here and Google when finally upgrading. I was surprised to see the VID fluctuating around, but mostly over 1.45 VID on an Asus TUF Gaming X570 pro. Idle is like 41C. I thought maybe I mounted the cooler poorly, but I think it's more the...

    Any Reason Still to NOT get a Liquid Freezer 2 for AM4?

    Does the Rev 4 hardware basically alleviate all the AM4 woes I been hearing about? Sounds like it might still be a bit of a pita to install, but not toooo bad? Any reason not to get the biggest size I can fit? I realize performance drops off after 280, but for 30 bucks ehh.. Hoping to cool...

    Xbox series X controllers on sale at $40

    Glad to hear the d-pad is better. It "looks" more like the 360 one, and that one was garbage. Ok so maybe it's just that it is disk-like shaped. But the old old one was bad enough I shuddered a little lol.

    **It's DEAD, Jim** Logitech MX518 $19.99 / G203 Lightsync $14.99 and more on sale at Best Buy

    I'm still using my G5 at my desk (a lot like the MX518). I wish they made this dang shape in wireless still. Having to go wireless with a Corsair Lapboard I got, for using in front of the TV, drove me nuts. I loved the lapboard, but disliked all the new mice I got to try. Palm grip guy, they're...

    [DEAD]Steam 2020 Halloween sale is here!

    The DLC is super new. I had just picked up the pass to get the next one too. Everything you've heard about the game good or bad, unless like in the last couple weeks is about the main game. I enjoyed it. That said, DLC is like 30 bucks at the absolute full price. If you want to roll with the...

    How Does the GTX 1080 Ti Stack Up in 2020?

    I paid like effective $530 (tax and all) for my 1080Ti 3 years ago, essentially an open box type purchase on a ZOTAC AMP edition. I got a lot of longevity out of her. Kind of went off on a console tangent for awhile there with a new TV. Back in the PC space with a Corsair Lapboard purchase, and...

    Prey Is $9.99

    I picked it up. With my Gamer's Club thing it was $8.50 with tax... so, yeah. Edit: and now I read the game pass thing :p. Researching though I knew about the 1 month and 3 month deals on that for xbox, which I was sort of interested in. eh..

    Are Plasma TV's still good for gaming in 2019?

    I only recently upgraded from a 65" Panasonic VT60 Plasma to a 75" Samsung Q9FN QLED for res. The VT60 was good for me. I'm not some like uber competitive gamer on lag. I did swap out an ST60 just to get the figure down catching the VT60 on sale. I'd certainly have been game for a 4k version! I...

    warm deal?? Samsung NU8000

    I had best buy price match B&H for the 75" Q9FN for 3299.99 with 10% cash back for getting their card (will pay in full, not worried about redonkulous APR). So not too far from a free PS4 pro on top. The Q8 and 9 have dimming zones. I understand a whole different ball of wax than topic, but...

    HOT: Samsung 2018 55" "BFGD" 120hz @ 1440p with HDR CHEAP @ 799.99 or, Open Box $679 Best Buy ht

    Should probably clarify a touch in the OP. The way it's implied here that "it works with Nvidia cards", most everyone will interpret that as some form of variable refresh rate will work. I hope when eventually nvidia does support VRR over HDMI like one would assume with HDMI 2.1 (4k@120Hz and...

    Xbox One X Bundle w/ Fallout 76 - $349.99 @ Newegg

    I bit, not sure why! I have a Xbox One I use barely at all, use PS4 way more, and I'm having a hard time parting with my 65" Panasonic Viera VT60 for anything other than a bigger OLED, which basically leaves me with $7k+ TVs. I know a 65" OLED will be "better", but I never upgraded a main set...

    Far Cry 5 - $13.50 - GMG

    [H]ot (?) Xbox One X With $50.00 Gift Card $399.99 @ Gamestop

    I guess everything has their use. I got a fair amount of use of my Xbox one when my usual gamer buddy was over for CoOp: Several Halos and Gears of War. PS4 having several exclusives I need to play: Horizon, Uncharted, GoW. I even got a lot of use out of WiiU when I had more than 2 gamers in the...

    Acer EB0 Series EB490QK Monitor - $404.99 shipped!!!

    A screen without a tuner is a monitor. I suppose whether you want to call it a "PC monitor", would be a little more of a debate? I mean, when you put it on your PC, I suppose what else would it be? :p Doesn't matter. The line is officially blurred. I'm just glad big screens are coming out with...

    Guitar Nerds, 18% off at Amp Factory

    Jeebus. I'd have to do some research, but with my not very old Marshall DSL40C currently decomissioned, over I'm guessing some tube issues, certainly pisses me off and makes me drool a bit! From recollection Jet City is good for the kind of stuff I play. I thought for that price, must be solid...

    Current 43" 4K options?

    So one thing I'm confused about, and I have the X800D, I figured HDR was just something a screen would support, and if the source (in this case a GPU) also supported, it would do it's thing. Or is that how it does work with the TV on Auto and Graphics set to some option? If I do set HDR10 on the...

    How big is your Gaming screen?

    This is for a Panasonic Plasma? I don't know if I've updated in awhile. I have one of the last ones myself, a 65" VT60. My gaming PC is only involved with it when I use an extra doing HTPC duties as a Stream streamer, so maybe I'm already adding some latency, but any bit helps and I can always...

    Nintendo Switch

    I know right. I bought it for a trip to my GF's family, she sleeps in and other such trivial excuses I sometimes come up with to buy stuff. We ended up with seats not even next to each other on the plane, and it just turned into a blink, there, gaming session. I started noticing other instances...

    How big is your Gaming screen?

    43" 4k just a couple of months. 1080Ti seemed overkill for my games at 1440p, so I upgraded. Wish I had more gpu at times, but very admiral job. Round and round we go lol.

    Wolfenstein NC - $36.39 after promo code - CdKeys.com

    Think the code will work on Destiny 2? They had me get dangerously close to check out without me seeing a spot to enter the code. I've never used them before, but am obviously aware of them. edit: ok so the code is for 6.66% off, it would still be high priced. Kind of helpful to know these...

    Sequel Middle Earth: Shadow of War Confirmed

    Cdkeys had it for 35 when release was approaching (not anymore), but I read on IGN that it will be a promo for 1080 & 1080Tis. I have a Ti so I'm hoping to score a game voucher for a good price in a wee bit. I did just beat the last one. I did think it was a little repetitive, but by the time I...

    Are you happy with your Pascal investment?

    I upgraded from a 1070 to a 1080Ti when the opportunity became available rather cheaply. About $150. Stacked discounts on an open box 1080Ti, sold my 1070 during mining craze for a better than youd usually get flogging a used card price. I am much happier with the Ti. The 1070 was billed a 1440p...

    GTX1070TI spotted

    As one user pointed out with shader counts, they did shut off 2 clusters of cores for the 1070. They could split the difference by reenabling one. So there is an easy card to release. It could just be that with or without GDDR5x. Gap was bigger than 970 to 980 seemingly on purpose that's for...

    Am I kidding myself into thinking I can use a 40" 4K TV 2-3 feet away from me ?

    For 90% gaming (unless it's like something uber competitive), I'd say go for it. I just went to a 43" 4k TV from a 32" computer monitor. I find myself burning through my backlog now! For stuff like surfing, well I find I just need to get used to using it a bit differently. For instance, I...
