    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    I want to see someone benchmark Planet Coaster with 12,000 guests with an OC'd 8700k.

    GTX 1080 Overclocking Results Thread - Post yours here!

    I just got my MSI Armor OC 1080 and was able to push it to around 2100 core (+150 vcore) and 5.4GHz memory (+400) for now with no immediate crashing or artifacting with Unigine Heaven. It seems to crash around +175 vcore, but I haven't really messed with the voltage or power limits too much...

    I'll probably be updating to a 1070 or 1080, depending on benchmarks, since I'll be coming from SLI GTX 670s I've had since late 2013, so it's time for an upgrade. Not sure if I'd upgrade my current processor (3570K OC'd to 4.5), since I'm not sure if I'm really processor bottlenecked at this stage.

    What would the coolest running 4TB drive be?

    I can attest to this disk running pretty cool. I upgraded my old RAID array to these 4TB disks, and my old 7200RPM Seagates ran about 42-45C in my 3U 16 bay chassis, but these new 4TB disks barely break 30C on load.

    How much power is your server drawing?

    Server is running an E7200 processor with an Intel X-25M 80GB SSD for OS, 3Ware 9650SE-16ML with x9 4TB HGST 4TB disks (bought them from B&H when they were like $150), but oddly enough, received their new "Megascale 4000.B" disks (product number HMS5C4040BLE640). They're probably rebranded...

    4TB disks for RAID 6 on 3ware 9650SE-16ML?

    Has anyone ever tried mounting some 4TB disks on these RAID controllers? I'm curious to know about disk compatibility (beyond that 3ware specifies) if anyone's tried rocking some 4TB Seagate ST4000DM000 or Hitachi Deskstars with this controller? Or should I just go with the WD 3TB Red drives...

    Ultimate Battlefield 3 Simulator?

    They need to rig that setup to something that remotely resembles a rifle. Seriously, a stockless "gun" for the control mechanism? Talk about pretty much aiming everything like a pistol with a vertical fore grip (which would be inaccurate and uncomfortable).

    My Dell ST2220T arrived!! - subjective analysis of IPS panel

    16:10 vs 16:9 - what you prefer?

    Exaggerate much? :rolleyes: Yes, I personally don't like 16:9 myself, and prefer 16:10. So long as that demand still exists out on the market, people will make 16:10 monitors as far as I'm concerned. Besides, I think a lot of what's missing in these 16:9 versus 16:10 arguments is relative...

    ZR24w & PS3

    Sorry to necrothread, but this is relevant to my interest of hooking a PS3 to a ZR24W I have recently ordered. I already have an HDMI -> DVI cord, but does it scale the game properly in 16:9 (with letterboxing)?

    Migrating RAID 6 unit to new hard drives

    Do you know if it's possible to shrink partitions or to shrink the RAID slowly one drive at a time as I slowly add 3TB drives to the server and expand those arrays? To me, that would be the easiest way to migrate my data over to the new drives while preserving my data.

    Migrating RAID 6 unit to new hard drives

    Hi guys, it's been a while since I've been up-to-date on RAID and stuff, but my current RAID 6 is getting a little cramped and port availability is getting limited as well as the drives I'm using. I'm thinking about migrating my unit to new hard drives, but not invest in any new actual...

    Lenovo posts X220 specs, IPS display is an option

    Yeah, I'm really surprised no one has done an "official" benchmark on any of the hardware review sites. That probably turns it off for many potential buyers, that, and it doesn't seem to be very well known.

    Lenovo posts X220 specs, IPS display is an option

    I got the Renice because it seems to have a fair price for the performance from what I understand. The shaky thing about it is that there really isn't much information out there for the drive itself (it's been recently released, I guess), and people have reported on Notebook Review that they've...

    Lenovo posts X220 specs, IPS display is an option

    Just ordered myself an X220 fully specc'ed out with the i7-2620M and the IPS screen. I'm wondering what people's shipping times are? Also got myself the Renice 120GB mSATA SSD so I can use that as the boot drive and keep the 320GB hard disk for general storage. Overall, this thing is going to...

    Why is demand so high??

    Do we have guns to our heads forcing us to buy? Don't buy at these prices and wait for prices to go down. Neither you or I are entitled to lower prices if the market dictates that the damned goods should go higher than MSRP. It stands for Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price, after all. :rolleyes:

    do sata hd's peak at 23mbps file transfers?

    Over USB 2.0, that sounds about right. With an eSATA interface, you can expect the throughput to be about the maximum the hard disk itself is capable of doing.

    Why isn't RAID a backup?

    There's a difference between redundancy and backup, something I think the OP is misunderstood for the concept of RAID. RAID provides redundancy; it doesn't substitute as a backup.

    Amazon has the ST31500341AS for $97.99, $87.99 if you use a Discover card. No taxes or shipping for me, at least, unfortunately I barely missed out on the $10 off Discover card promotion when I ordered my drive for $99.99 on Monday. :(

    $150-$200 upgrade from 8800 Ultra?

    If they did that then people would be getting free upgrades all over the place. No, it's equivalent performance, not equivalent MSRP value. In a way, it's equivalent fair-market-value of the card as it stands today, not at the time of purchase. I would estimate he likely gets a 9800GTX+ or...
