    Oculus Quest 2

    This is what I already own. So its better to have a separate router? Several other devices do use this router as well.

    Would this router https://rog.asus.com/us/networking/rog-rapture-gt-ac5300-model/ be good enough for air link?

    The great video card dump of 2020 has begun!!!

    Plenty of 20 series cards still have warranty as well. You have to consider that 1060s still sell for $125. There comes a point when people won't sell for anything less because its better off kept. The people selling 2080tis now always want the current gen flagship or higher end part. Thats...

    The great video card dump of 2020 has begun!!!

    Has it been confirmed that 3070 performance matches 2080ti rasterization performance and not just raytracing? If its just RT performance that is the same I can see 2080ti's value remaining similar or above $500

    RTX 2080 ti, cooler suddenly loud

    Thats weird that they are all spinning if that one fan is truly dead, also when my one fan was dead I couldnt control them through software they would respond to software command due to showing a 0rpm signal, If I were you I would buy the set of 3 thats just me. The fans shouldnt spin at that...

    RTX 2080 ti, cooler suddenly loud

    I dont think so. I think your one fan is showing zero rpm to the sensor which isn't a problem until you go over the zero rpm temperature threshold. That's when all the fans should kick on. With that one showing zero rpm it boosts your remaining fans into like an emergency mode where they ramp...

    Get a replacement fan I would say, it seems to me that ones gone bad.

    RTX 2080 ti, cooler suddenly loud

    Hmm the middle fan isnt spinning at all? Does it spin on boot up? I think your problem might be that fan that isnt spinning. I had a 1080Ti that exhibited similar behavior from the sounds of it. It ended up being a stuck/dead fan. I would poke the stopped fan in the center spindle and it...

    Ordered a white 3.0 right angle adapter, so Im going to give that a try. Might just unhook the front panel audio as I dont use that audio out at all and my wired headphones are USB anyway. Thank you for the constructive input Spartacus09!

    Post your "rate my cables" here

    Would love the vertical gpu option, but the 2080ti is 3 slots and the vert mount can only accommodate 2 slot cards. Will have to look into that usb right angle adapter though that sounds like a great idea for that area. Thinking maybe I could at least heatshrink the case switch wiring...

    120 vs 140 AIO

    I have always been impressed with Arctic's products ever since the Freezer 4 and the Freezer 64. So good for what they cost especially over stock coolers at the time.

    120 vs 140 AIO

    Maybe if it were cheaper, but $100 is corsair 240mm money for only $20 more. Make more sense if it was priced at $80 or so. I just did a similar "upgrade" from 240 to 280 rad. I knew it wasnt going to net me much but wanted to use up all of my available rad space as well. My idle temps are...

    How are the Asus Z390 boards?

    I've got the Strix Z390-E, also paired with a 9900k. It's been a very problem free board. I believe the main difference between the strix and maximus is the VRMs. The maximus has an additional 8pin eatx power connector that the strix lacks, this equates to tighter voltage regulation if you...

    Should I just get a SSD 2.5 or a M.2 SDD, I heard the M.2/msata kinda overheat though ?

    A lot depends on the placement of the m.2 slot on your particular motherboard, especially in relation to other hot components on the motherboard. Some manufacturers have done a better job of this than others. I love my 950 Pro for what its worth.

    Gigabyte G1 1070 on Amazon

    I too was able to get in on the instock Gigabyte 1070 G1. Installed in a new Skylake build yesterday and is purring along quite nicely. Love the fact playing Rocket League doesn't even require the fans to turn on :) Must have been a bum card Pillars :(

    750 ti to 780 make a difference?

    A better cpu to shoot for in that price range would be a 780ti which is hitting the $200 used price range on the forums. A huge step up from the 750ti for sure.

    Looking to upgrade, suggestions

    Hi folks, up to date rig specs are in my sig. I am ok with staying with the 970gtx for a bit, but am wondering what would "feel" like an upgrade as far as new cpu and mobo go? I am hoping to sell the current guts, cpu, mobo, and ram to partially fund this upgrade. Any help is appreciated...

    My 4870x2 hisses, is this bad?

    So would it be worthwhile to rma the card or wait a bit? Newegg warrants it for a year and asus warrants it for 3, so I could take a wait and see approach. The noise doesn't bother me so much as if there is an underlying problem. Thanks for your advice.

    My 4870x2 hisses, is this bad?

    Thanks for the replies guys. The card works beautifully, so i dont think it is dying or anything, but I got it from the egg and could return it pretty easily if need be. Would I most likely encounter this sound with a replacement card?

    My 4870x2 hisses, is this bad?

    Let me explain further. I have the asus version of the card and am using smartdoctor to keep the fan speed at a constant 40%. There is just a constant sound of fan. But when I exit HL2 some "noise" goes away. This shouldnt be the fan because I have it set to a constant rate.

    My 4870x2 hisses, is this bad?

    I just dropped in my brand new Asus 4870x2 yesterday. Today while playing HL2 I noticed that it makes a hissing noise whenever I play. The card doesn't make this sound when I am not gaming and I dont believe it makes the sound when I play cod4. Is an rma in order or is it nothing to worry...

    Antec P180 or Antec 900

    I have the 900 as well and highly reccomend it. As long as you have quiet components inside, it is a very quiet case. I also like the fact that it shows the psu as much as it does, because an upside-down ocz gamexstream looks badass with its bright 120mm fan like that. That other poster who...
