    Can we put this in Sentry and water cool it?

    My Sentry case just arrived today! Yay for me. Big thanks to Dr.Zaber team for their hard work and courage to do such an incredible job!

    I looked at AMD's own ram compatible list. Rams at 3200 seems to be at 14 cas timing. So I think you might get any ram to work at the frequency if it is rated at 14 cas.

    I feel you man. Next time you buy a blower style card, make sure it's a founders edition. They rarely have a problem, works almost in any situation and looks better too. (At least in my opinion)

    Then you should try to return the card as it might be a defect... Or if you can return and refund and buy other model of 1080. If you want ablower style I suggest you buy the founders edition as it has vapor chamber that should be more effective than the non vapor chamber aero card. Or just buy...

    You should ramp up your fan speed. The absolute max temp in the spec of 1080ti is 91 degree. You only have 1c headroom and if temp go beyond that the chip will quickly deteriorate. Ideally you should keep your GPU below 75c to lenghten its lifespan.

    Threadripper3.4ghz bench leak

    Probably fake. I saw the scores of 7900x. Those are around 30000 (~4500 single core) which is believable for 10-core cpus but 27000 multicore and 4000 single core for a 16-core cpu? Nah.

    Sadly for us general consumers, GPU mining is viable again. From what I learned if you use your GPU to mine bitcoin directly, then yes, it is no where near enough to even cover the electricity bill. But today people mine one of the several altcoins that are ASIC resistant instead. They then...

    I don't understand. According to my knowledge, the only differences between a B350 and an X370 are multi GPU capability and some ports. Why do manufacturers sell X370 boards when it is more expensive but, in the case of mini itx, it is basically the same as B350 boards? [Image credit: Gamers...

    I'm planning to do just that. I have a problem with mounting C7 as well. The mounting bracket conflicted with some of my board's components on the back which forced me to use little plastic rings Cryorig provided instead. I'm suspecting that the heat sink not aligning perfectly with the heat...

    My PSU is going to be sf600 as well. I thought I was the only one who think of the cables that way. Thankfully, I got a Cablemod 20% off coupon from my Asus board, so I'm going to order some custom cables from them as well. Please do a review of the cables once they arrive. I'll be looking...

    Yeah, I've been looking for a while and the closest thing I've got is this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Stereo-Panel-Speaker-PC-Front-Panel-Computer-Case-Built-in-Mic-Music-Loudspeakers-Space-Saving-Front/32712009546.html?spm=2114.40010708.4.4.2ONzyo which isn't damn near fit inside sentry.

    I'm looking for a basic level in-case speaker for my sentry when it arrives. It doesn't have to sound so great just enough for basic stuff like watching youtube or non-competitive gaming or what you would expect from a cheap laptop for example. Are there any suggestions?

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

    Oh wait, so you actually think I believed it is the TIM that is garbage because of that joke? No. In fact, it doesn't matter where the problem originated from. Intel decided to go cheap. Instead of properly soldering the chip to the heat spreader. And they fucked it up in the end. Still I don't...

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

    I don't think putting different adhesive or remounting affect thermal. Some people didn't even bother reapply adhesive and still get the same thermal performance. So I think those things are irrelevant. Unless you can supply proof that those things significantly improves thermal, you are just...

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

    I don't believe things on the internet without proof. The fact that intel didn't solder their chip to the heat spreader and the fact that people get -25C after replacing the TIM are my proof. Stop defending intel when it is obvious that they did something wrong, fanboy.

    At that point who cares anymore? People will be rocking out their new 1280 or R12 780 or whatever.

    I bet Vega will be basically a 1080 with +5% perf on DX12, -5% on DX11 and a TDP of ~300 watt

    Ryzen 1700 performs better than i7 6800k on Prey.

    Exactly what I thought when I watched the video. Maybe he was trying to show gaming performance of workstation CPUs? 1700 vs 7700k would be more logical as they are also about the same price. At least the video confirms that Ryzen is also a good architecture for gaming.

    Ryzen 1700 performs better than i7 6800k on Prey.

    This seems to prove that lower performance on games we have seen when R7 launched actually resulted from games being optimised for Intel CPUs. If anyone still think that Ryzen is junk for gaming, they should have their brain checked.

    I bought an AC usb adapter for around 10-20$ a year back and it worked fine for me. Yeah, you won't hit 100MB/s with that but it was not so slow... unless you call 8MB/s slow. Maybe your problem was poor signal due to too much distance from the PC to the router. In that case you might need...

    I personally would choose a blower style card like founders edition. It helps venting hot air from the case and an open-air card of that caliber might affect CPU cooling more than a 1060 which is used in the tests we have seen. MSI Aero seems to me like redressed founder edition which means no...

    Why does Ryzen 7 1800X performs so poorly in games?

    Note that Witcher itself is a memory-speed sensitive game. On 7700k you will notice the same FPS boost.

    Sorry, 150W was a bit exaggerated. That's for slightly OC'd 1800X. (@3.8GHz) I didn't noticed the little 'OC' back when I viewed this the first time. :P 110W would be correct for 1800X stock. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-7-1800x-cpu,4951-11.html
