    8600K fine for gaming?

    Looking to get a new gaming box and with the Intel shortage the 8700k's are harder to find and cost more. Benchmarks show the 8600k matching the 8700k. My only worry is the lack of HT coming back to haunt me. I'm cool with a mild OC using air. LMK what you think. My other option would be a 2600X.

    Alienware - AW2518H 25" 1080p 244hz TN LED FHD GSync Monitor $349.99

    Sick deal but this deal seems to be on rotation every so often. Great monitor for "competitive" gaming. Not so great for anything else. Someone convince me to not jump on this. Looking for a competitive monitor. The xl2546 and xl2540 seem like the best alternatives. 1" smaller, no gsync but...

    USB 3.0 PCI Express Card Expansion card compatible with Ryzen?

    Looking for a card that will work on a Ryzen chipset. Most of the cards I'm seeing only work with an Intel chipset or not too well with Windows 10. Do any of you have a card working well with your Ryzen?

    Does Corsair LINK work on Ryzen?

    I have a 2700X and Corsair LINK doesn't work for adjusting my Corsair Vengeance RGB memory. Googling looks like they keep mentioning that support for Ryzen will be coming in a soon to be released patch but I haven't heard of any conformation if this has ever worked on first gen Ryzens or not, as...

    Stock 2700X fails OCCT every time

    I have a stock 2700X that passes Prime95 with flying colors but it can't get past a couple minutes in OCCT because it looks like the temp spikes to crazy heights at times. Not sure if these spikes are accurate or not but I see the same peaks in core temp as well. Are these spikes normal for...

    Can't find "EZ OC" option in X470 Taichi bios

    When I load up the Asrock OC utility it says not supported. I'm assuming I need to enable it but I don't think it's called "EZ OC" in the bios. Does anyone know where to find it in the bios?

    R7 2700/2700x on B350?

    As of yet there are no X470 mATX boards so I'm looking to pick up the ASUS TUF B350M-PLUS Gaming. Is there any reason not to do this? I was originally looking at getting the 2700 but now I might consider the 2700X as I'm not sure what numbers I'd be able to put out on a B350 and non X CPU. Think...

    Kyle... Review Idea

    It's no secret that 90% of gaming performance comes from the GPU and CPU upgrades do not need to be as frequient as GPU upgrades. Still it would be nice to see a comparison to have some numbers on the idea. Benchmark 2-3 recent games (BF4/Rise of the Tomb Raider) with all generations of Intel...

    Any info on the 1080 Ti?

    Looking to finally upgrade my GTX 680 to the next flagship Nvidia card. Any word on when the 1080 Ti will drop? Hopefully before the fall and hopefully not at a ridiculous price. Any word yet? I've searched and searched but have only been able to come up on 1070/1080 news.

    Bang for the buck 2.1 setup?

    Looking to get a 2.1 system for a non audiophile person. It could even be a 2.0 system as long as the speakers are good enough to drive the bass. Looking to spend under $100 I have a few options in mind but would like to first get the opinions of the collective before jumping the gun.

    Tenkeyless MX Cherry Brown deals?

    Rosewill MX Cherry Blue/Black $49.99, Alps $29.99 All Mechanical

    IMO Blues are the best. All mechanical keyboards are loud, so don't be fooled by "silent" keyboards. Blacks IMO are a bit too uncomfortable as the are harder to press. It just wears on you after a while IMO.
