    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    I built the system in my signature last September with the intention of getting a Ryzen 3000 series on launch. I was on a 3770K before. I'll be jumping on the 3900X if the independent reviews don't show any serious flaws. Most likely not upgrading the mobo, but might consider RAM if 3600 holds...

    Anyone get a Creative Super X-FI yet?

    I'm a top 500 NA flex support main and played at ESL Cologne for another game. For me, the sound from fps games sound so foreign and odd with Super X-Fi. Hard for me to pinpoint where anything is coming from with high enough precision to compete.

    Anyone get a Creative Super X-FI yet?

    This. I love this thing. My only criticism is that for FPS games, it really messes me up with positioning. Maybe I have to unlearn everything and relearn how the Super XFi positions sounds, but playing games like Overwatch, I just couldn't tell where anything was coming from. Other non-fps...

    ASUS ROG PG279Q and PG279QR Question

    Because of the midwest cold vortex, my monitor got delayed by 2-3 days. I just received it yesterday. This is the best monitor I've ever had. No dead pixels, no blb... maybe I just got lucky, but I'm quite pleased with it. Out of the box settings on sRBG looked quite good as well.

    AMD Ryzen 7 2700X on Sale at Amazon

    I just bought one of these at Microcenter. It's my first AMD processor in 15+ years... and I love it. The next thing also is that if you don't plan on using the RGB cooler that comes with the processor, you can do what I did and sell it on ebay for $40. Brings the cost down to an incredible...

    5400 vs 7200 rpm for streaming video.

    Thanks guys. yeah, that's exactly why I was asking. Looking to buy a new drive and wondered if the speeds actually mattered, especially if I was using it to stream videos to another pc. It's a Western Digital drive that lasted me 6 years. seems like a reasonable amount of time to die.

    5400 vs 7200 rpm for streaming video.

    Been a long time since I've bought a regular hard drive, but my 2TB drive is starting to click and I think is dying. Does rotational speed matter much if I'm using the drive as a media drive to watch 1080p videos? Thanks in advance for the thoughts.

    AMD Announces Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition

    Pretty useless if after 4 months, the latest drivers are still producing crashes for Overwatch. I just want good driver support for one of the most popular games being played right now. Still a post in Blizzard's Tech forums telling players to use drivers from June or July.

    Does it matter if you get more than 60fps on a 60Hz monitor?

    Could someone explain or send me to resources on why getting more than 60fps with a 60hz monitor matters or doesn't matter? I'm looking for a really good technical explanation. I think I'm really bad at googling, so any help would be really appreciated. Thanks guys.

    14.4 Beta drivers-Anyone try them?

    I'm guessing they're asking about hashrate performance. I'm getting mixed results with the official 14.4 drivers. My hash plummeted until I lowered the thread concurrency... but I'm not sure if what's being reported as hash is correct. I won't say these drivers are solid, but I haven't written...

    6950/70 gets much less hash with BAMT than Windows 8.1

    I was using bamt 1.5 and just noticed they had a 1.6.2 update a few days ago. I'm still not getting the ~480khs from before but it's closer to 430khs now plus I'm able to use a 6570 with it also. I added a few hundred khash with that update. Sweet.
