Newegg has the Western Digital SN850 1TB PCI-E4x4 on sale for $164.99 - $15 instant rebate = $149.99. :happy:
According to PCPartPicker this is the lowest price this drive has been, and is one of the better PCI-E 4x4 drives out there.
This has to be the lowest price I've seen for a 10900K. It's even lower than Microcenter's prices.
i9-10900K = $409.99
An even better deal would be to buy it in a bundle with a Gigabyte Z490 AOURS Ultra motherboard for $100.00 off. :eek:
i9-10900K + Gigabyte AORUS Z490 Ultra = 599.99
Newegg has the MSI Radeon 5600XT for only $229.99 right now after rebate. This seems like a decent deal for a 1080p/1440p card, if you don't want to hit the used market.
The reviews are questionably high. They're almost all 5/5 stars, which makes me a tad suspicious. :whistle: Nevertheless...
Amazon has both the 240mm and 280mm versions of the ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II AIO coolers in stock.
These are highly sought after, but seldom in stock at MSRP. Go get one if you've been waiting.
Link: 420mm :geek:
I've just upgraded to an i9-10900K, so my old i7-7820X needs a new home. This CPU has been professionally de-lidded by Silicon Lottery with Thermal Grizzly liquid metal applied. eBay auction ends on 6/23/2020 at 5:25pm.
I also have an X299 Taichi motherboard that I need to sell, but not sure...
I'm currently on the X299 platform with an i7-7820X and I've been thinking about getting into 4K video editing for YouTube and such.
I was wondering if quad-channel RAM helps in video editing, or if it would be worth changing to a Ryzen 3900X system instead, although that would cost a good...
My pre-ordered Lian Li Lancoll II arrived today! :cool: I thought I'd show some quick pictures for anyone who's interested. I was surprised by how heavy the case is. It feels extremely well-made and very high quality. I'll be moving over my current I7-7820X build from a Jonsbo W2 case into...
The 850W Capstone is now out of stock. But there is a new deal on a Rosewill PHOTON 1050W Gold PSU for $69.99 out the door price. Use promo code: EMCUUVC23.
Just beware of all the negative reviews before rolling the dice on this one. :unsure:
EVGA has a couple good deals on power supplies going on, for both budget and mid-range systems. :smug:
1. EVGA 600W 80+ Basic = $39.99 @ Best Buy.com
2. EVGA 700W 80+ Gold = $64.99 - $20.00 MIR = $44.99 A/R @ Newegg.com
If you've been waiting to upgrade to an RTX card now may be a good time.
Newegg has the MSI Ventus RTX 2080 for $679.99 after rebate, which puts it under MSRP and $120.00 less than from Nvidia directly.
It also includes Battlefield V game code for free. (y)
I was running Cinebench this morning on my 7820X @ 4.7Ghz when the system blue screened. I had to do a cold restart to get back to Windows. I noticed that my CPU was no longer running at it's OC settings, but seemed back to default.
I tried going back in the UEFI and put my settings back to...
I just noticed some noises coming from what I think is the pump on my Corsair H115. I've never heard this noise before, and it only happens when I lay the case down. Has anyone experienced something similar? Is it about to die? :( Take a listen and let me know what you think. Thanks...
I have a new 7820X coming soon, which will be de-lidded and have the stock TIM replaced with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut liquid metal.
I was also planning on using the Thermal Grizzly between the IHS and my Corsair H115, replacing the current Arctic MX-4. However, the instructions say it...
I'm upgrading from an i7-6800K to an i7-7820X. :smuggrin: Will I be able to simply plop my 960 EVO into the new X299 board as long as I install the new drivers, or does it require a full re-install of Windows 10?
Newegg has a combo deal for the Ryzen 1950X (16c/32t) + Gigabyte AORUS X399 Motherboard for $1,269.98 - $249.99 = $1,019.99.
This seems like a pretty good deal. I'm a bit concerned about those mobo reviews though. :unsure:
I just got a new i7-6800K today. I've been trying to overclock it, but running into trouble. No matter what I do, it will not go past 3.8Ghz. I've tried setting it to Manual Mode, XMP Mode, setting the CPU multiplier to 40x, with 100 Base Clock, setting CPU Strap to 100; 125, 167, etc.
