    Modem errors through roof, upstream channels not bonding

    First of all, I'm running a Netgear CM600 modem and an Orbi Netgear mesh system. Provider is Suddenlink. Been having some issues lately. Anytime a storm rolls through, even though my cable modem and router are on a battery backup, fucky things happen. This last time, we had a brief power failure...

    JBL 530 Speakers - $299

    These are a steal. I have not seen them for sale, let alone on sale, for a couple years now. Arguably one of the best sets of speakers ever.

    Gsync 4k 144hz HDR monitor prices 'released'

    This was on my radar, and I knew they would be expensive, but holy shit. I want the 35 incher but it's going to be how much money when it comes to the States? Prices are euro, with VAT, but the 27 inch variants from Acer and Asus are €2500 and €3000 respectively...

    Need a good Z170 overclocking board..not Asus

    My Maximus Hero likely just died, confirming today with a replacement PSU to verify, but if it is the mobo I am needing a new one. I don't need fancy onboard sound - just solid power, good overclocking and stability and reliability for my 6700k. Not really budget minded, but would like the best...

    Noisy Gentle Typhoon?

    I have several AP14s that are less than a year old. One of them is making a ticking noise, faintly audible over airflow, on an irregular basis. Lasts about 10-30 seconds? Then stops. Will come back 30-60 seconds later. Repeat. Any ideas on how to quiet it down? It's not the mount, no wires...

    Upgrade from Korean 1440p

    I'm considering upgrading from my Qnix 27. Monitor is relatively fine, but it's delaminating on the top edge and that has really irritated me. I don't want another Korean monitor. 1440p is my minimum, as is 27 inch. Primary use is gaming, but not competitively in any sense of the word. I...

    Corsair Vengeance 2000 vs higher quality cans

    Motherboard that supports x16 or x8 on bottom PCIE?

    Are there any motherboards out there that you can do a crossfire in slots 1 and 3 or 1 and 4 to get as much distance between air cooled cards and still run x16/x16 or x8/x8? I am currently on 1155 but I would be open to all solutions, or if a specific brand or product line tends to offer this...

    Best 27" - DP/HDMI needed in $300-400 range

    Came home to the fair scent of magic smoke...

    Noticed my card had stopped mining. 780Ti, undervolted, ~75C for reference. Computer is off. That's weird, usually if I have instability while mining and I need to drop clocks, the system reboots. Hit the button - * click * Nothing. Check the mobo, light is on and I begin to notice the...

    Viable Nvidia Mining - Cudaminer

    Just a heads-up that the Dec 18th version of Cudaminer has drastically increased the ability of Nvidia cards. My 780ti can do 600 k/hash with no tweaks and undervolted to 350w at the wall. This is approximately on par with what my 7950 could do at the same power levels. Pump up the OC and I was...

    MSI TFIII 7950 -- Original 7970 iteration

    Just put it up for sale. Can't resist doing so at this market. I don't care for mining, and I just upgraded to 1440p/120hz so I need some extra horsepower. Undervolts nicely, stable at 0.880 @ 900 core. Capable of very nice memory clocks also. Gamed at 1100/1600 at stock voltage. Your milage...

    Guess I am Team Green now!

    Worth it to upgrade from a 7950 right now?

    Just got a 1440p monitor and have it overclocked to 96hz. Will go further, but no real point with the games I am playing - which is mostly BF4 and AC4. Considering that, the 7950's are getting a nice premium right now and I am wondering if it's worth it to upgrade to a 780 or a 780ti at this...
