    I Broke a $900 Motherboard

    I guess I got sloppy swapping in my new motherboard. I mean, I've been a [H] member for years. I am infallible and can do no wrong. I started up my new EVGA Dark Z690 board and it wouldn't post. The board would only boot with the top DIMM slot populated, nothing with the second one filled...

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    You guys remember 9 years ago when we flipped out at Nvidia for releasing the original Titan for $1k? 😂

    Has Intel Abandoned the HEDT Market?

    Any new word on a potential X299 successor this year? Is it all but dead at this point?

    DEAD: EVGA 1600w PSU Sale (T2 $259, P2 $239)

    When I bought the 1200w P2, I knew it was overkill but it served me well through several generations. For this price you might as well grab one and forget about needing a PSU upgrade for many years. Buying direct from EVGA with a sweet 10 year warranty is a major plus as well :)

    Any Reason Not to Get a Kingston KC3000?

    Went ahead and ordered the Kingston. It's currently on sale direct from kingston for $146 so even less than the 980 Pro 1TB

    Any Reason Not to Get a Kingston KC3000?

    Upgrading from a 960 Pro and was naturally going to choose the 980 Pro. Noticed recent reviews claiming the KC3000 is faster and since this is going into a desktop, don't have to worry about power consumption or heat. Since the price is only about $15 more for the Kingston drive over the...

    i9-12900k vs 5950x - Out of the game for a while..

    I'm in the same boat as you. Looking to upgrade a 4 year old X299 system and was choosing between these two procs. One thing that swayed me beyond performance was the platform. Z690 seems to be much more future proof with compatability with upcoming 13 gen procs and DDR5 where as AMD will be...

    3090 Founders Edition Overclocking Headroom

    Snagged the first 3090 that became available which was the Founders Edition. Ill be putting it in a custom WC loop, but I just noticed that this version only comes with one 12pin power connector. How much will this limit me in terms of Overclocking headroom if the card is under water?

    Should I Keep Current PSU for New Build?

    Thank you all for the info :) Seems like the PSU should still be worth keeping for the time being. What are usually the first signs of psu stability issues to keep an eye out for?

    Should I Keep Current PSU for New Build?

    I do believe the PSU had a 10 year warranty, but I just checked and I never actually registered the product with evga if that matters. I did purchase it from new from Amazon so it should have been fully covered.

    Should I Keep Current PSU for New Build?

    My trusty EVGA Supernova P2 1200w has served me well in my main rig for 7 years and through several chip generations. Never put it under too much stress, but it has always been stable, even at decent overclocks. Now that I'm considering a new 12900k/3090 RTX update, I was curious if it was...

    Upgrading in 2022

    I could try to find a good deal on a 109xx chip, but they don't seem to be that cheap. If I was going to spend on a new proc, I might as well just upgrade the other parts at the same time. My main concern is the upgrade path going into the end of the year. It looks like Intel might have even...

    Upgrading in 2022

    Thanks for the reply :) Definitely seems like Z690 is the way to go at the moment as it outpaces the current AMD offering at a lower price point. I guess I can either just go with the Z690, or wait for the new Intel HEDT and AMD Zen 4 platforms later in the year. I don't really have a...

    Upgrading in 2022

    I have not kept up with the current CPU market as my X299 system has been chugging along now for 4 years. Since I just picked up a 3090 RTX, was considering giving my PC a total refresh. My main usage of the desktop is gaming at 1440p, no workstation activity. Even still, I've always liked...

    Skylake-X (Core i9) - Lineup, Specifications and Reviews!

    2080ti 2080 Ownership Club

    Finally got the MSI 2080 ti Seahawk EK installed. It's one heafty beast :) Just some quick overclocking and have been able to run valley benchmark for a couple hours now at 2145mhz steady. Card runs around 50-53c under load which, I gather, is pretty decent. Going to install Metro now and...

    Should I Wait to Buy a 27in Gaming Monitor?

    Thanks for the input, really appreciate the advice. The XB27K looks really nice, but I don't think I can stomach paying that much for the screen. Is there anything with similar specs to the aw3418dw, but with a 27in screen size?

    Should I Wait to Buy a 27in Gaming Monitor?

    Since the 2080 ti no longer supports DVI, I figured it was a good time to upgrade my Overlord Tempest. Tried the Alienware aw3418dw, but it's just too wide for me :/ Is there anything on the horizon I should wait for, or is there a 27in monitor out now I should consider? Budget is around...

    So I guess the MSI makes the most sense since I can feed more power into it. Glad to know the card has a pretty high overclocking ceiling :)

    How does the this 2080 ti do under water in a custom loop? Finally going to take the plunge and order a MSI 2080 ti Seahawk EK since it has more power plugs than the EVGA FTW3 HC and Gigabyte 2080 ti Aorus Waterforce :p

    LG 55 inch OLED C8 2018 - $1579

    Got the 55C8 a few months back from Buydig for $1499 on a call in deal I saw on slickdeals. Buydig is an authorized LG dealer so I'd keep a lookout for something like that. As far as the B8 vs C8 vs E8, they all have the same panel, but the imaging processor on the C8 and E8 are supposedly...
