    Graphite pads application

    I've been researching graphite pads as a potential replacement for thermal paste for my laptop, and I saw that every single application out there just dump the pad straight on the die/IHS. From what I understand TIM were used to fill in microscopic holes on the surface of the IHS/die and...

    Buy a laptop with 7700HQ now or wait for potential 6C Coffee-Lake H laptops?

    As titled, I'm torn between just getting the Dell Inspiron 7677 now with I7 7700HQ and 1060 6GB MaxQ, or wait for mobile Coffee Lake with 6C. My understanding is that we should see mobile Coffee Lake show up next year, maybe Q1/Q2, since desktop parts have launched. Benchmarks have been leaked...

    Colorful GPUs?

    Any1 used Colorful GPUs before? The cooler and power delivery seems solid, but past reviews have been pretty mixed. Over here it's the cheapest 1080Ti offering, so I'm pretty tempted to grab one.

    Zen gets even with Broadwell-E in Blender

    http://seekingalpha.com/article/4000707-amd-zen-summit-ridge-outperforms-1000-intel-broadwell-e-coreminus-7 Rather iffy statement from AMD, but I think they must be quite confident to be able to state that directly. Zen's looking more and more appealing each day.

    GTX 1080 or 1070 + LG 24GM77

    As title states, I'm torn between buying a GTX 1080 and then a monitor upgrade later down the road, or a 1070 + the LG 24GM77 now, a 144Hz gaming screen that has pretty great reviews? Price are around the same for both options. Currently gaming on a BenQ GW2240 + GTX 970. I'm 100% sure the...

    1080s best selling high-end GPU in history

    Geforce GTX 1080 sold out, selling excellent Well, fuck... Someone at NVIDIA must be having a big fat bonus check, plus vacations and hookers right about now. Founder's Edition must've padded NVIDIA's bottom line nicely.

    NVIDIA unveils Founder Edition - AMD to blame?

    If you haven't, check out this video first. Jay made a good point regarding HTPC/Mini-ATX builds that pretty much requires blower fans. Pretty much everyone who buys reference buys it because of a. water blocks/b. early adopter/HTPC crowd. Is the Founder Edition NVIDIA's attempt to target...

    Driver improvements over time

    LTT just did a short vid on driver performance over time for a 480. Pretty good I must say. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZUshOSWQRo Though 3 years is a long time to wait for an extra 20-30% performance. But then again, I guess it's gonna be the norm from now on, what with the...
