    EVGA Queue Discussion

    I have been in que for either a 3070 or 3080 lower tiered cards since the end of october. No notifies for me. I am now wondering if it was a mistake to go for the lower end cards. Perhaps they are a lower profit margin and EVGA is not producing as many of these. Kid

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    Was camping F5 on Nvidia's site and Best Buy. Nvidia went from "notify me" to "out of stock between refreshes" BestBuy still shows "coming soon". Kid

    Anyone think this guy is right?

    Fake shortage coming I am not normally one to read conspiracy theories, but this sounds a bit scary (with the distinct chance some of it may be true) I would like to hear what [H]ard folks think of this theory. Kid

    No Win 8.1 support with Asus TUF Z370 plus motherboard and an i7-8700k

    I have a Gigabyte Z370 and I run windows 7 pro. I had to get the lan and chipset drivers from intel . I got the sound drivers direct from realtek and am using a program called wufuc from github to continue to get updates for my "unsupported" coffee lake processor. Wufuc is of course not...

    Anyone else not give a single hoot about overclocking

    This will work for me..... 5GHZ all cores instead of 4.2 all cores. Its only 19% or so, but I like it. Kid

    Anyone else not give a single hoot about overclocking

    Just got an 8600K this week. Last upgrade was Sandy Bridge. (2500K) I will be overclocking, but perhaps not to the extreme of the chip's capabilities. I sure would like to get 5 years out of this rig. 2500K was a great processor. (still kicking too) Kid

    Anyone else not give a single hoot about overclocking

    Overclocking exposes the limits of components. This is most valuable for me in picking the parts for my next rig. I may no longer push everything to the extreme, but I sleep better knowing it is better than stock and still has room to run. Kid

    Quality of AMD Motherboards

    Quality of AMD Motherboards

    Okay, flame suit on. I have not used an AMD cpu since I moved up from my Opteron system. But one thing I noticed after building several machines for family and friends back then, was that the AMD boards seemed to not be as polished as the Intel boards being offered at the time. Nics and other...

    Razer Mice a few years later

    I have owned several death adders and they have been mostly good. Normally mine start to fail to register left clicks and sort of make gaming impossible. But replacing them every 2 years or so does not seem excessive. The one I currently use has a scroll wheel with a mind of its own. Kid

    Is an upgrade worth it?

    Sounds like you are going to enjoy that upgrade. It is always nice to upgrade either a GPU or CPU separately and not be bottlenecked by the component you did not upgrade. And in your case you will see significant performance increase in your gaming. Is there a cooler upgrade coming as well...

    Battlefield Hardline Preorder 29.99 @ Microcenter
