    1080/1070 users - Upgrading to 1080 Ti?

    Yes. Did a Step-Up from 980Ti to 1080, pending an upgrade from ACX to ICX, then Step-Up to 1080Ti. \o/

    GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Reportedly Launching in Late March

    EVGA has a Step-Up program for consideration (I've used it, took 65 days to get new card, kept old one until they shipped). Qualifying card owners have 90 days from date of purchase to register for Step-Up. Although there is no guarantee that the 1080Ti will be added to the Step-Up Inventory...

    The 2016 Post Pics of your Rig Thread!

    Well, now that you've mentioned it, it'd definitely be over the top if you polished the aluminum plates. Makes me think of when I polished all of the aluminum on my (former) 5.7 TPI 1989 IROC-Z28. I used an Aluminum Manifold Polishing Kit from Eastwood Restoration. It'd be just a little more...

    Looking for recommendation on AIO for silent build

    I'll likely get the EVGA AIO for the GTX 1080 that I'll be upgrading to. They will be released sometime around the middle of July and will have separate SKUs to cover the reference and the custom EVGA PCBs. If I still had a fat budget, I'd like to use the EK Predator 360 AIO, pre-filled, and...

    Not sure what a normal desktop is for you, but can't you simply right click the desktop, select "Personalize" and change it?

    New goodies!

    Great choice on the x71. Considered it myself. As big as that rad is, it should have no problem hiding in there.

    Partitioning SSD

    Simply split it in half. More than enough space for a dual-boot Win 7/Win 10. Consider minimizing SSD activity/usage by saving files and installing all programs/games to a hard drive. Also, do not defrag your SSD.

    Are you upgrading to the 1080 GTX?

    Likely, but I'll wait until 30 June (last day to Step-Up at EVGA), if necessary, in hopes of getting a non-FE SC something with an ACX config. I'm still setting up the new system and have barely used the 980 Ti yet. The cost to upgrade for me is minimal compared to what I've already spent...

    NVIDIA Founders Edition Cards - Yea or Nay? @ [H]

    Rather than "Yea or Nay", I'm at maybe. I rate the Step-Up program at EVGA, but won't activate it until I see reviews/testing of the 1080.

    Making windows 10 lean

    I've just set up a dual-boot also. 7 & 10. On 10, I only use Chrome, not Cortana, nor Edge, and have resisted the temptation to download any windows apps to reduce any possible bloat. I linked my documents/downloads to a hard drive to save space on the SSD. I'm sure there are more items to...

    Free year of Newegg Premier for Military (Active Duty, Reserve, Veteran, or Dependent)

    Hey, Devildog! Thanks for your service! No such thing as "just". I liked being a Sergeant so much that I did it twice. Had almost a year in grade when I got out the first time, went back years later as the senior LCpl in the Corps, made it back to Sgt in two years. Viet-Nam Era and Desert...

    Tt Water 3.0 Riing 360 AIO - Use factory applied paste or replace ?

    Update: I used Arctic Silver Arcticlean Thermal material Remover & Surface Purifier to remove the factory applied thermal pad (coffee filters for the lint-free rag). Applied a pea sized amount of NT-H1. Idle temp shows in UEFI as 29C, so it looks normal so far.

    Tt Water 3.0 Riing 360 AIO - Use factory applied paste or replace ?

    New build. Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing 360 RGB AIO. Ordered Noctua NT-H1 Thermal Compound for the install, but now see that there is already factory applied paste. Should I replace it with the NT-H1 or use factory? Nothing in the AIO install instructions covers thermal paste. Thanks

    recommended cards for my system upgrade from 8800GTS (G92)?

    Yes, Thanks :) I usually build a new rig every five years, so it's time. But I'd like to get another year out of this one. I just ran across another thread where the OP runs an E8400 and was essentially asking the same question. Based on the responses he got, it would appear that the most...

    recommended cards for my system upgrade from 8800GTS (G92)?

    Hi All! I've been running two of the EVGA 8800GTS G92 in SLI for almost five years now and feel it's about time to upgrade. I could use some input on which video cards would be the best replacement based on my system specs. I don't think I really need to continue the two card SLI route. Would...
