    How a Zotac RTX Graphics Card is Made

    Same here, I thought of Mario Kart. I thought it sounded more like the ending music you would hear during the summary of the Cup race sequence showing different stages you just played.

    Metal Gear Solid 1998 Intro: 4K Unreal Engine Remake

    Looks really good. I noticed a typo on the subtitles. They used wrong word for 'whether' at 1:34 of video.

    i5-2500K Crashing

    My first things I would do, aside from returning to base clock speeds, is see if Windows is generating a Windows Crash dump file or check Event Viewer to see if anything is logged for crash or freeze. Look at motherboard and see if any capacitors are bulging or leaking. If not, then installing...

    Google Can Tell If Someone Is Looking at Your Phone over Your Shoulder

    Not a lawyer either, but if you are out in Public, there are probably laws that state you can't expect privacy in Public. If you are in bathroom stall with door closed, then obviously you expect privacy in regards to others not seeing you, but should expect them to hear you.

    I'm guessing the 1st option is no Adaptive/Gsync, 2nd option is Gsync, and 3rd is Freesync?

    Didn't many of the backers get a headset with their backing or did you have to donate a minimum amount before they sent one?

    Battleborn Quietly Closing Down, 15 Months after Launch

    How can Randy spin this one? Original Twitter quote: "Battleborn is: FPS; hobby-grade coop campaign; genre blended, multi-mode competitive e-sports; meta-growth, choice + epic Battleborn heroes!" In short, it was dumpster fire and no one should ever listen to Randy.

    Intel May Launch Ice Lake 8 Core/16 Thread CPUs in Second Half of 2018

    I think it is Microsoft for some reason being the ones asking Intel not to make drivers for Windows 7 for Kaby Lake and higher CPUs. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3112663/software/microsoft-made-em-do-it-the-latest-kaby-lake-zen-chips-will-support-only-windows-10.html

    Why I Deleted My Steam Account

    They should cut to the chase and cancel their Internet service and/or cellphone data plan. Don't need any of them internet racist/sexist/etc bits/bytes coming into their home/phone unexpected.

    iPhone X: Apple Unveils the “Future of the Smartphone” for $999

    I'm with you. I got Iphone6 through work around time they came out and I've been happy with it for most part. Wish it had more storage, but I'm not the type of person that needs a new phone every 2 years. The wife on other hand. She got the Samsung S8 Plus and paid for it outright when they...

    A serious OS stuttering issue

    Have you tried installing Windows 7 onto it to see if it does same thing. My only reason for trying out another OS is just to see if it isolates issue to something within Windows 10 is all. I'm not saying use Linux as your primary game/work OS, but just to try what you are seeing to duplicate...

    A serious OS stuttering issue

    Sorry for all the questions, hopefully, you haven't answered all of them while I've been typing this. According to specs you listed, you have Asus Z97-a and the onboard is an "Intel® I218V, 1 x Gigabit LAN" it would be an Intel driver, not Broadcomm. Have you tried NIC drivers from Asus site...

    Hollywood Blames Rotten Tomatoes for "Summer from Hell"

    Sadly, I base my opinion of going to movies off the trailer for the movie. They show enough of the main parts anyways in them. I rarely look at reviews nor do I ever go to Rotten Tomatoes site. Those pictures of the employees sitting around in the article's pictures is funny to me. The...

    XFX RMA Hall-of-Shame

    That's funny and good of them to post the types of stuff they see for RMAs. After my friend built a new PC for himself last year, I reused his old parts and built his partner a PC while they were out of town on a trip. He had planned to do it himself, but never got around to it. I offered...

    Equifax Data Breach Exposes Personal Information of 143 Million

    Amazon to Add Second Headquarters with up to 50,000 Jobs

    Or the Dallas-Fort Worth area! Plano(suburb of Dallas) just got State Farm and Toyota HQs built within last 1-3 years. I'm sure Frisco or Plano suburbs would compete against one another to win this type of deal and willing to take no taxes for a million years to get them to build there.

    No beep during POST (new CPU/mobo/ram)

    Awesome. Hope you were able to return the motherboard without any issues or restocking fee. Enjoy being on cutting edge until October. Intel releases their next CPUs in October, which require new chipsent motherboards. :P

    Apple Watch Cheaters in Major League Baseball

    I agree using technology during the game is not fine, but when teams complain about stealing signs without use of technology is idiotic. From the sounds of it, it seems like a very long weird game of telephone. You have to be accurate and quick to relay it through like 3 different people. I...

    Temporary Plex server...

    By installing one of them, it's one less physical item to pack up and move. Moving sucks as you start to see all the crap you own that has not been touched or seen for years and having to figure out what to do with it or why you still have it.

    No beep during POST (new CPU/mobo/ram)

    I don't know if you have a friend or family member that has newer motherboard with Z270 that would support the 7600K. If you do have a friend, family or coworker that has Z270, I would try using your CPU on their board. Or if they have a 6x00 series CPU they could try on your motherboard, to...

    EA Calls Nintendo Switch Hardware "Very Difficult"

    I feel the reason 3rd party developers don't like making games for Nintendo consoles is because Nintendo games kills them on sales. I still feel people like myself buy Nintendo consoles specifically for playing Nintendo made games. From the article, the developer mentions they are on a 1 year...

    Standard Ubiquiti Unifi AC AP Outdoors?

    SSD Shown in Bios and not in Windows 2016 install.

    Spilled drink on my mechanical keyboard :(

    Not sure if your keys come off. If they do, then start with popping them off if you can. They do make tools to remove the keys. Clean the keys and around where they stick/click to keyboard. EDIT: Do read the Video's SHOW MORE section. They have links to another guide that has similar steps...

    What's your fallback card?

    If my 970 fails, then my fallback is onboard video!

The last couple years, I've been playing less and less PC/video games. Most of it...

    Liking the new 8350K, I may buy it instead of the 8600K. 4 cores is where it's still at.

    I'm in same boat as OP. I am in process of building PC for my sister and planning to wait until October, if that is when they are released. Just need the CPU and motherboard right now to start putting it together. I'm debating on the i5-8600K or after reading the early hype the 8350k. My...
