    100% LHR unlock. Things just got outta hand!

    Nicehash unlocks full LHR on V2 LHR cards better than any other miners before it. Went out and bought a card last night to test it out myself and sure enough am getting better efficiency out of my 3080 Ti vs. 3090...

    Worth changing AIO to lower temperatures on 5900X

    I have a 5900X that runs at 83 C when overclocked using PBO. If I under volt it to 1.25 volts it runs at 70-73 C. This of course makes all CPU related benches go cuckoo (e.g., Cinebench MC goes down from 8300 to 8000, SC goes down from 636 to 580). Games seem to be boosting fine though at...

    Ryzen 5900X overclocking help

    I bought a Ryzen setup for the first time since my Athlon X2 3800+. It’s my first time building a rig with AMD so I am not very familiar with all the mumbo jumbo. Add to that it is also my first time using MSI motherboard after a very very long time. I do not understand the bios at all and half...

    Open world - wearing me out

    Open world games are wearing me out so fast. Every damn thing is an RPG of sorts with an open world with repetitive crap thrown at you. Every single game. It is really becoming a chore to finish even the simplest of games. Mafia 3 - Why is it open world? Dafuq! Ghost Recon Wildlands - Why is...

    5930K @ 4.5 GHz -> 6900K @ 4.5 GHz

    Worth it? Simple question. Will cost me additional 550-600 bucks to "upgrade". Was hoping Intel would drop prices on the 6900K post launch of Ryzen but it is clear they don't give a shit about AMD finally catching up to them after 10 years lol. Anyways, worth the hassle or keep 5930K and wait...

    Any 980 Ti SLi OC vs. 1080 SLi OC benchmarks?

    Scoured most 1080 threads on these forums but failed to find some SLi benches with overclocks. Any information, either professional or user, would be extremely helpful for me to gauge if this is a worthy upgrade. Ideally, would like 1440, 21:9 1440 and 4K benches with real games but am OK with...

    Open world = consoles

    More and more I am coming to the conclusion that open world games need to be played on the console. Especially with PS4, I find it extremely comfortable to pause wherever I like, run around do errands, even turn it off and resume exactly where I left it. My 3 recent endeavors into open world...

    Which latest video card do you own?

    Simple poll after the fact and now that the dust has settled of how many people own nVidia cards or AMD cards. Only put high end parts in there and not anything else for simplicity. Bracket indicates that the choice is valid if you have either SLi or CF setup and a 290 or a 290X card.

    Can we settle this: i7 5820K vs. i7 5930K for MGPU gaming?

    Which is better. The most I will ever do is 3 way SLi and that too on cards that run at 70 C full load on air cooling. Other than that, possibly will run only 2 way SLi. Worth going 5930K over 5820K given the price differential of almost 200 bucks? I will be running this with an ASUS X99...

    Pondering a ram upgrade on my current computer. Is there a real difference in going from 8 GB to 16 GB. I remember going from 2 to 4 and 4 to 8 was a night and day kindof jump. Now when I look at max ram usage running heavy games like BF4, Crysis 3 or Ass Creed 4 it never surpasses 5-6 GB of...
