    $800 AORUS FO48U 48" 4K OLED (after MIR)

    It bothered me on the Aorus 48in, not the C1. I don't even notice it in the C1. On the Aorus it's violent!

    $800 AORUS FO48U 48" 4K OLED (after MIR)

    I ended up returning the Aorus and getting the LG C1 48in from Costco. The variable brightness settings when anything white was on the screen was driving me nuts, especailly changing browser tabs and looking at documents. If you want it purely for gaming though, I'm not sure it can be beat by...

    $800 AORUS FO48U 48" 4K OLED (after MIR)

    Hell of a deal. I'm a little worried about the auto dimming being annpying, but the price is right to try it. I have been reorganizing my office/basement into 2 distinct areas and have been using a 55in C9 for work and gaming. Looking forward to moving my c9 to my gaming area with my ps5 and...

    price changed to $299 - dead - Gamestop Pro Members - Samsung 980 PRO 2TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 Internal V-NAND Solid State Drive with Heatsink for $209

    Price is now $299...still $30-$50 cheaper than other retailers but you do pay tax so YMMV. THIS REQUIRES A GAMESTOP PRO MEMBERSHIP...which is $15 for a year. I jumped on this for my PS5 with GT7 coming next month...

    Can you install a Ryzen 3600 into a powered on computer socket without damaging it?

    It worked perfectly initally, but then the system started boot looping at Windows boot...reboot, Windows logo...reboot.. I could mess around in BIOs with no problems. I replaced the PS, same issue. Swapped back to the 5600x i still had in case the board was borked...nope....ran like a champ...

    Can you install a Ryzen 3600 into a powered on computer socket without damaging it?

    I did this with a 5900x...it didn't work out for me.. It's maybe the dumbest thing I've done building a PC..

    New Silverstone FT02

    I don't have any to actually test, but I would assume they would work in the case's 5.25 bays. I can't imagine why you would use them except to change up the look a the front. All the air you would ever need comes from the bottom.

    AMD Ryzen 5000 ‘Zen 3’ Desktop CPUs & X570 Motherboards Have High Failure Rates, Reports PowerGPU

    I had a 5900x in a system that worked great for about 2 weeks. Then after a reboot the motherboard would post fine, but at Windows boot it would hard restart and do this over and over, even after an attempt at a new Windows install...which would fail. I replaced the PS initally as it was a...

    New Silverstone FT02

    Just got done with this build this weekend. I still have a couple small things to do but it works really well. I love this case and I'm glad I took the time to plan it out. Also, QDC's make this so much easier.. System is a 1900X TR and 5700 flashed to XT. Optimus and Heatkiller blocks...

    Anyone have experience with Koolance QDC's?

    I know this is preaching to the choir at this point, but I love the QD3 connectors...so precise, and I just redid my hard tube system with ZMT tubing and the QD3s with 10/16 compression ends so I can pull my GPU and CPU blocks for easy parts swapping. I do tend to upgrade at least one component...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Got a 6800 for my brother to replace a 1080ti. He runs 1440p ultrawide, so I think he'll be set for a while. Found via Discord. I think the only reason I got it is it's a new model and no one was able to bot it right away.

    the Sabrent is faster based on a quick google search...but for pci-e ssds it's relative...when loading a game you aren't going to notice a massive difference. https://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Sabrent-Rocket-4-NVMe-PCIe-M2-2TB-vs-Adata-XPG-SX8200-Pro-NVMe-PCIe-M2-2TB/m847932vsm892867
