    Corsair Hydro H100 Lifespan

    I bought a Corsair Hydro H100 exactly four years ago this month. It has worked great with zero issues on my 2600K. Should I continue to use it for my Skylake 6700K build or is it time to replace it? I also have a Noctua NH-D14 that I could use. I would like to hit 4.7 on my 6700K.

    HD 7970 XFX Black Edition Crossfire Bad

    HD 7970 Crossfire - Non Reference Cards?

    I have asked this in a couple of other threads with no replies. If running HD 7970 in crossfire is better to have the reference design cards vs. the non reference design cards? I would much rather buy the non reference design cards but I'm concerned about their cooling methods once crossfired.

    Quad Channel Kits For X79/Sandy Bridge-E

    I know Corsair and Kingston announced 32GB and 64GB quad channel kits for X79 but what about smaller kits like 16GB? With Sandy Bridge-E less than two weeks away, I assumed quad channel kits specific to X79/Sandy Bridge-E would start showing up or at least announced. Anyone?

    Hyperthreading Disabled Kills my Computer

    It has been mentioned that turning off hyperthreading can greatly increase performance in BF3. When I turn off hyperthreading in my bios, weird things happen. My computer boots real slow and then runs in very slow motion: mouse movement, sounds, graphics, everything. Completely unusable...

    My DFI MI P55-T36 caught on fire!

    I built a small system in February 2010 with the DFI MI P55-T36, i5-750, HIS HD 5450, Corsair XMS 3 memory, and an Antec BP550 modular power supply. I chose the Lian Li PC-Q07 case. I knew this case had poor airflow; however, I didn't plan on overclocking, gaming, or anything else very...

    I bought a Klipsch HD500 5.1 system that was bundled with a Yamaha RX-567 on sale for $599.99. I use it for my computer room for gaming and music. The problem is, I'm a little underwhelmed with the lack of fullness to the sound. It is very clear and has good base from the 8" sub but there is...

    If your HD 5970 rattles and squeaks, post here!

    I just received my HIS HD 5970 and the fan rattles like a bitch. I've seen a couple of other people comment in other threads about this, so I wanted to start a thread to see if this is a wide spread problem. The card seems to run just fine, it's just noisy like an old cheap fan that rattles...

    My BFG GTX 280 OC Died!

    I turned on my computer this morning and I had streaked lines across my screen (the usual: your video card is about to die look). The computer failed to boot all the way into windows with a BSOD. After about three attempts to boot, I stopped getting any video all together. I pulled the card out...
