    Corsair H100i $69.99 I know, I know, $20 MIR, but Corsair MIR are the only ones I've had no hassle with and received quickly in the past.

    Gigabyte GTX 780 Ti $599.99

    I'm a little sad that this went down to $599.99 after I bought an EVGA reference card a couple weeks ago from NCIX for $70 more (which was also a good sale price).

    Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Now Or Wait For Corsair 450D Release?

    I was thinking of the Corsair 250D and going the mITX route but am having second thoughts about possibly needing SLI down the road. My new question to you is: wait to see what Corsair is probably soon to unleash upon the world (hopefully it will leave amazing impressions like the 250D seems to...

    Last Few Component Undecided

    Trying to figure out my motherboard, memory, and case. Current items are here. This will mainly be used for gaming, streaming, archiving (compressing/decompressing), light Photoshop use, etc. I have no limit to my budget, although I'd like to keep it under my tax refund amount (~$2300) if...

    Swiftech H220 vs. Corsair H100i vs. Noctua NH-L12

    I will be getting a 4770K and putting it on a ASRock Z87E-ITX motherboard inside a Corsair 250D case. I'm not trying to go balls to the wall on overclocking. I may not even do it if the benefits aren't substantial. My main goal is to have a pretty quiet, small system that packs a punch. If it...

    ST4000VN000 vs. H3IKNAS40003272SN

    I can't decide which one to buy, the Seagate or the Hitachi. This drive will be used on a personal computer for storage/downloads/etc. (ie. no program installs). Someone mentioned the Seagate had 4 platters whereas the Hitachi has 5 (I am assuming less platters equates to better performance)...

    Yet Another One Of Those Threads

    First off, I play a wide range of games but mainly stick to CS 1.6, Dota 2, Path Of Exile, & Rift on ONE 1920x1080 resolution screen (I use the other for streaming, etc.). My current computer is unable to run Rift with reasonable FPS and maximum settings. With supersampling I get a pitiful 15...

    A-DATA S599 Bad?

    I got the "64" GB S599 almost two weeks ago and was pretty impressed with its performance. I just have my OS on the drive and the WoW game with about 20GB of free space. The first time the problem occurred I was away from my computer. I had left it on and when I got back I was welcomed with a...

    10.10d Disable Catalyst A.I.

    Am I blind or just plain stupid to assume that there's no option to turn this setting off but only to change it in the latest hotfix? Or does it go by a different name?

    First Impressions of Acer G235H (Ie. Recommend Me a Better Screen)

    I finally broke down and bought an Acer G235H from Newegg for $160 since I'd heard good things about the G series from many places. I was so excited to open the box and set it up. Unfortunately, this monitor is quite possibly the worst thing I've ever seen in comparison to my old Samsung...

    Asus EAH6850 Temperatures

    I have two 6850s in CrossFire and just with the default voltage and clock speeds the temperature on the main card climbs up to 87-88C after 5-10 minutes of Kombustor and the fan is going at 90-100% around this peak temperature with my near-default user fan profile. So much for a "cool" card. At...

    6850 CF or GTX 460 SLI?

    Both are the exact same price before rebates, $360 for 2. I hope to run Metro 2033 at Very High settings, not necessarily with AA bumped up, but definitely with tessellation active as well as any future games. If I overclock each to their highest potential what would yield better performance...

    E8400 P35 To i7 930 X58 Upgrade Questions

    E8400 Core Damaged?

    I've had my E8400 (C0 revision, 6 stepping) for about 2.5 years and it's seen different overclocks. However, I never went above 1.4 Vcore and watched my temperatures like a good boy. I must have been stuck with a bad chip because 3.8Ghz was as high as I could stably go within a safe voltage. For...

    RP500-2 and Overclocking

    So I've had my Rosewill RP500-2 for a little over three years now. It has seen a few different components over the years, but mainly has powered my current system for about 2.5 years comprised of: E8400, MSI 8800GTS G92, DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS, G.SKILL 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 1000 RAM, a DVD burner...

    How to Offset Across Dual Monitors

    I have two different resolution monitors currently. The one on the left is 1280x1024 and the other one on the right is at 1600x1024. I have switched the latter to 1280x1024 and kept the aspect ratio locked. This results in two black bars on the left and right sides. I was wondering if it was...

    Necessary for an Upgrade?

    I've been looking to purchase a new monitor so I can finally get out of my 1280x1024 resolution that I've been running for a while. I just really cannot stand game interfaces being so gigantic in comparison to the game world anymore. Even in Photoshop or Word having more screen real estate to...

    Looking to Upgrade from SyncMaster 193p+

    I've had this 193p+ for quite a while now (over 5 years) and am looking to upgrade to a larger screen. Don't get me wrong, I love everything about this monitor, but I would really feel better delving into the 1920x1200 resolution. This 1280x1024 just does not to me justice in most games. I love...

    Zalman CNPS9500 Fan Speed

    Is there any way to run the fan not at low speed? How does this baby work? I don't hear any noise which isn't good; I would like to overclock and run the fan speed at high but I don't know where to look in BIOS and SpeedFan seems to be no help. Running the DFI LP P35-T2RS with my E8400. Help!

    Is AS5 Really Worth It On Zalman CNPS9500?

    I haven't picked up my shipment yet but I'm assuming the hsf comes with some sort of thermal compound. Will AS5 make any more than a few degrees difference or is it fine to use what comes with it and still be able to overclock considerably well on my E8400?

    Photoshop CS3 And 8800GTS G92
