    Best Wireless Solution for Small Home w/ Plaster?

    Currently in a 1 floor 1br house with my fiancé, but it's older with tons of plaster. I have a TP Link AC1750 with about 240mbs internet from Comcast.

    How are Samsung phones nowadays?

    Haven't owned a Samsung phone since probably the Note 2 or 3. Right now I have a Pixel 4XL and it's.. decent, battery life is kind of poop and I don't even use the swipe feature which was cause for the big forehead. Right now Best Buy has a deal for $250 off the Samsung S20 FE when you do...

    Nvidia Shield / Streaming Games to TV Questions

    Was exploring options of streaming games from my PC (8700k @ 4.8, GTX1080ti) over my home Network (Wired/Wireless, ~120Mbps download, ~5-7Mbphs upload) to my TV (Samsung 8000 Series, 65inch 4k/HDR). Would a Nvidia Shield handle this or are there other ways? Currently I have a 3 story...

    750w Sufficient for 8700k OC and 1080ti?

    Right now I have the Corsair HX750 and wondering if this will be sufficient for a nice overclock on an 8700k along with a GTX 1080ti. Only other peripherals I’m running are a DVD burner, one hard drive and one SSD. Hoping to push the 8700k to 5.0 at least on a H115. Thoughts?

    Intel CPU 8600k $258

    Seems places have been price gouging and selling these for $299-300+ due to limited stock (i.e. Newegg has stock but they're selling them for $299). Not really hot, but at least it's at MSRP...

    7700k now or wait for 8700k/8600k?

    With current stocks of 8600k/8700k in short supply and high prices, would it better to just go ahead and upgrade off a mature platform and get the 7700k/z270 from a meagerly OC'd 3570k? Or would the benefits of the 8600k/8700k/z370 outweigh that of the 7700k/z270?

    Did I miss something? Usually HardOCP does reviews of new processors, but seems like we don't have any for the new Skylake launch. Or is it in the works? I'm quivering with antici.... pation.
