    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...

    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...

    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?

    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 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...

    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...

    2.1 Wireless Speakers

    My Klipsch Promedia 2.1s have served me well for over 12 years, but they're on their last legs. Since I don't need anything substantial,, I was just going to upgrade them with new wireless Promedia 2.1s to improve on my wire clutter, but I was curious if you guys and gals had any other...

    Does Unused Soft Tubing Shrink?

It was still in a sealed box and just sitting in a closet for about a year and a half. Got some compression fittings (3/8 1/2) which supposedly fit the tubing. The Bitspower one...

    Thoughts on the 2016 Razer Blade?

    The product looks really compelling in my opinion. $2000 is pricey but for the specs you get, it actually looks reasonable. The New Razer Blade - World's Most Advanced Gaming Notebook Quad core i7 as opposed to the dual core i7's found in most notebooks, PCIe storage as opposed to a normal...

    Reference Zotac 980 ti $550 has a reference 980 ti for $599. Add the 10% off (max $50 off) and it comes out to $549. Unlike the 20% off coupon, I believe existing and new customers can take advantage. You can waive free returns for some extra savings too...

    Frustrating issues with wifi connection :(

    5th Gen Intel 15in Laptops

    So I got a XPS 13 as my new work laptop, but sadly the screen size is too small. Does not look like the XPS 15 has been updated with the new chips, and the other 15in laptops out now seem low end variants and even those are fairly rare. Anything on the horizon or will I be waiting til after summer?

    White Corsair Air 540 and 3 Cougar Fans $79 after MIR

    Thought it wasn't a bad deal. $129 is about what you'll spend on the case alone, and you get three cougar fans and a $50 combined MIR. Also for all you Californians like myself, no tax :)

    After almost 9 years of use the audio system is on its last legs. I'm looking for a decent 2.1 system to replace it. Anything better in the $150-$200 range, or should I just buy a new set of Promedia 2.1s?
