    EVGA G5 1000W noisy.... What options are there

    What are other good ~1000w options that are efficient and a bit quieter? at low-medium load the loudest thing in my rig is the power supply :) The P5 is on sale for $199 but I don't know if that is any better as it's part of the same generation.

    Really slow water loss?

    Custom loop, the water in my res has dropped about 1mm since all of the visible bubbles disappeared, has been running since Dec/January. Is it normal to have slow rate of water loss? I guess it could be bubbles trapped somewhere in the loop as well. No leak anywhere that I can see, also did a...

    Here we are months later, still no stock, and not a single 3080 that is less than $800 apart from the FE.

    What happened to all of those affordable 3080s that were within $50 of FE pricing? :)

    If you could have one of these 2 cards, water-cooled, which would you pick and why?? 6800xt or 3080fe

    If you were to get one of these 2 GPUs going in a custom loop, which would you pick and why? Monitor being driven is either 2560*1440 or 3440*1440

    X-flow radiator, inlet on bottom or top?

    Which option is better? I'm assuming using gravity by inlet on top would help the pump a bit, however, it may cause noise, though I'm not sure as I've never used a crossflow rad. :) For reference: I currently set it up with inlet on top, outlet on the bottom...

    B550 PCIe questions

    I currently have an 8700k with a Z370 board. Currently running 2 NVME drives, 1 PCIe Wifi card + my GPU, the GPU is forced down to 8x with this setup. Would a B550 allow me to run 16x on the gpu? also does it support PCIe 4.0 for the GPU since it comes directly from the CPU? Thanks! Tried to...

    No excitement about intel's latest offering??

    No one is interested in the latest 10 core, up to 5.3 ghz chip?? :) I was considering an 9900K and calling it a day, then read about the latest 10900k. Seems pretty interesting. But I haven't seen much hype about it. Is it the same core as the existing Coffee Lake setup, just more of them at a...

    Radeon 7 (Vega 2, 7nm, 16GB) - $699 available Feb 7th with 3 games

    Announced today :O 26% more performance at the same power level They didn't give much detail, apart from the 26% more performance @ the same power envelope, that could be just due to the 7nm jump, but they said 0 about architectural improvements, so it could be a bit better on review day.

    Same price... 2600 or 1800x?

    Which would you take for roughly the same price, it's actually kind of a lie, the 2600 will come with a heatsink, which will be replaced anyway. So technically the 1800X is 1 wraith stealth heatsink more expensive. General use, gaming, some coding, maybe a couple of Vms

    Looking for a new case..

    Which is easy to manage cable wise, and has sufficient cooling. Previously had a Corsair 650D and loved it, also had a Bitfenix Ghost, which I liked look and functionality wise (apart from the side panels being 1990s style for mounting back on) Any suggestions?
