    LG quietly launches 27" OLED monitor with 240hz refresh rate

    Right size, right aspect ratio, wrong price. :D In any case it doesn't say it's HDMI 2.1.

    Will windows 11 clean installe lower my Temps?

    I once replaced a heatsink to get lower temperatures only to realize that it was incorrectly seated.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Is there a chance you'll need to buy an ATX 3.0 PSU to use an RX 7500 video card?

    Gave up and bought the GTX 1650.

    It was the overclocked version which may not make much difference because I'm thinking of downclocking to default speed for durability. I just had a brain wave though. I know I can endure the next several months with the 1650 but what if I bought an RX 7500 when it comes out? I read the...

    Heat traps in new cases

    These might seem like superficial criticisms but for one, if you have a cool PSU, you'd want to show it off. Second, I think cases ought to be made so you can mount a fan near the hard drives.

    Heat traps in new cases

    Does anyone agree with this? Lately when looking at cases I don't even know if I can bother. They're now putting a sort of metal barrier above the power supply that hides the power supply and hard drives. I don't think this is ideal for either the PSU or HD temperatures. I prefer to have a...

    Guy buys a 3090ti from Amazon gets Sand instead

    If you're in Canada I've bought at ShopRBC, MemoryExpress, Canadacomputers and Cendirect. There's also Newegg.ca, Best Buy, Staples. (Never really tried Vuugo, PC Canada or iSanek.)

    JustGPU.com - Newegg's new GPU-only site

    I've ordered from newegg.ca because I'm in Canada in the past but has anyone from Canada tried to order direct from JustGPU? I mean their site is way better organized than the regular newegg web site, it's awesome in my opinion. They took the time to make comparisons on the site very easy. It...

    Why would Windows re-install video driver?

    Well, I think the one time I did have an issue it might have been watching videos on certain web sites. Then again, it came at a time that I hadn't updated my Nvidia driver for a long time. I imagine by the time Lunar Lake comes out I might want to build a machine then a backup machine as well...

    Why would Windows re-install video driver?

    I just had an idea. In the future, if I didn't want to have any issues with onboard video, are there any negative consequences to just buying a CPU with no video and a video card? (Years ago there were motherboards with no video ports anyway. But just wondering if there were modern quirks to...

    Does AMD stop support?

    That's interesting because I thought I read somewhere Intel/Nvidia had more compatible drivers for Linux. lol (Yeah, if I cared about it right now I'd do research but only a passing thought if I wanted to use a real old machine.)

    Does AMD stop support?

    Well, it happened to me once that I had an issue with a computer that only went away once I updated the video driver. The fact that I bought an Intel i5-10400 for my mother's computer kind of concerns me now they made that decision.

    Does AMD stop support?

    Come to think of it, in the value CPUs/GPUs, instead of aiming for an Intel i5-11400F & GTX 1650, you might get more bang for your buck with the Ryzen 5 5500 & RX 6500 XT. Usually I like to have two machines (one for gaming, other for watching TV/movies), next time I might build and AMD machine...

    But I'm wondering for those who follow AMD, have you ever heard of them dropping support for a 2 year old product?

    Thanks for telling me to do research but that page doesn't tell you how old their products are.

    Does AMD stop support?

    I just read Intel plans on eliminating support for their older iGPUs but this includes the Comet Lake processor which only came out like 2 years ago (which they're still selling right now). Does AMD ever end support for its APUs?

    Pentium 2 help

    If you're talking about something that's kind of glued on, I once put a video card in a freezer to remove the heatsink.

    New build, turns on but nothing comes on screen and there is orange mobo light that is supposedly telling me something.

    I flashed the BIOS of an ASRock B560M-HDV to the latest P2.60 and saw the RAM speed being detected in the BIOS go from 2133MHz to 2666MHz. (Actually, that was Kingston Fury 2666MHz RAM intended to go with a Comet Lake CPU so I didn't need to buy 3200MHz RAM. It was supposed to be for my mother...

    Gave up and bought the GTX 1650.

    1650 might be anemic but I already had the "unusual" experience of buying second hand on eBay. I ended up selling various bicycle parts with an accurate description of the issue and the feedback of course was like: "accurate description". EDIT: I just watched a Youtube video that showed that...

    If it's less than one year since the sticks were bought, maybe you can get replacements for both. Because as far as I know, the sticks are paired to work better together.

    Gave up and bought the GTX 1650.

    I was hoping for a long while to buy the RTX 3050. I couldn't really accept the prices. Some of the reasons though were because I bought things earlier without anticipating what was going to happen. Like I bought a Corsair CX 450 watt power supply for example. I usually prefer to have some...

    Why would Windows re-install video driver?

    OK, maybe that's why there was no crash when I exited Epic Games after I updated the Intel driver. Before the update, for whatever reason, Epic Games had crashed while exiting.

    New build, turns on but nothing comes on screen and there is orange mobo light that is supposedly telling me something.

    No I'm mentioning it because I heard lately it was free for the first time. But software like 3DMark, Cinebench, GPU-Z are still mentioned so I didn't think it was a crime. In any case, if you think my post was bizarre, you can read my previous posts, it's the first time I spoke about it.

    Why would Windows re-install video driver?

    I mean I installed a new video card in my machine. Windows 10 seems to assume I'm still using the Intel video on my CPU. So when I clicked to check if I had new updates it went ahead and downloaded and installed an Intel video driver even though I had already installed the latest Nvidia...

    I saw on Youtube that PC Doctor Toolbox is now free. I tried it on two computers today. It didn't show any errors on my system though (lol I suspect something is wrong with my Internet).

    New build lagging when installing updates or software

    If the M.2 slot is not working is it one of those situations where it's a Gen3 in a Gen4 slot, or would that still work but at Gen3?

    New build, turns on but nothing comes on screen and there is orange mobo light that is supposedly telling me something.

    This might be unrelated but may indicate something. In the last few months I bought an ASRock B560M-HDV with BIOS version P1.30 and much later a version P2.30. The version P1.30 would turn on but not show video on the DVI and VGA ports. I bought an HDMI cable and was able to see the video...

    Are we having too much "beta" lately?

    I mean I just saw a Youtube video about Windows 11 describing the issues. Then I saw of course they had come out with patches for the Ryzen CPUs and also read you have to buy an adapter for Alder Lake CPUs to prevent bending. So, is this acceptable for billion dollar businesses or should...

    Format & install over written SSD?

    Wow, I find this weird but I got mixed up in my messages. The work I wanted to do on my mother's machine is done. However, I had some unexpected surprises trying to work on an old Ahtlon 5400+ machine (that has the SSD with Win8 & Linux). I can boot from the SSD into Windows but for whatever...

    Format & install over written SSD?

    For what it's worth, I went into BIOS and disabled the #1 Boot priority. (There was only one thing listed, didn't memorize the name.) When I started the computer with a 21H2 Win10 installation disc (in the DVD-RW), it finally gave me the option to format. I tried to delete as many partitions...

    is I3-3750K to i7-7700K a useful upgrade ?

    Just a note to say those i7 can be 125 watts while the i5 can be 65 watts. In any case, the only AMD I might consider might be a 4600G because of the price, other than that, I read a few places that say Ryzen has a stutter issue in Windows. As far as I know, the main difference between an...
