    Pump on EVGA 3090 hybrid cooler making noise.... looking for options

    So I think the pump on this cooler is on the way out... it's been making an annoying buzzing sound, and looking through their forums, it seems somewhat common. Unfortunately I purchased it second hand so it's not covered by the transferrable warranty, and I'm looking for options. I was...

    This has been happening on and off since first building this rig in February of this year and I’m at my wits end. I want to find out what’s causing it so I can have a reliable machine again.

    Help me overclock my RAM? I clearly have no clue what I'm doing... (Ryzen 9 3900x)

    I built this rig in February of this year and just recently realized that my memory was only running at 2133mhz, well below the advertised 3600mhz, and I'm aware that faster memory does have an impact on performance on this platform, which is why I opted for 3600mhz memory in the first place...

    Dirty power in house causing PC to freeze?

    I’m having an issue with a computer that I can’t figure out. I gave this machine to a family member for Xmas and they’ve been having issues with the machine randomly freezing/going completely unresponsive. When I gave them this machine, it worked flawlessly. The components are from my old HTPC...

    Looking for advice on a home VM box

    I'm interested in setting up a VM rig to replace my current Media-File Server/Workstation/Gaming/etc machine. My current box is a jack of all trades and does the job without too much of an issue, but my problem with this setup is that everything has to live in the same environment which has...

    Help troubleshooting issues with Lenovo Ideapad 100

    I was given a “broken” ideapad by a coworker a while back and I’m just trying to get it up and running. When I turn it on, the power LED glows along with the front facing camera LED, and the CPU fan starts to spin for around a second or two and shuts itself back down. The screen never lights...

    fs: HTC Vive with extras

    I really hate to sell this, but I just don't have room at my place, and with our new puppy taking up time and floorspace, it's next to impossible to use the thing anymore. Perhaps I'll get another some day, when we have the space we can dedicate to it. What it includes: HTC Vive headset (OG...

    Haswell Overclocking, 4790K heat issues

    I managed to snag this CPU, used, for a mild upgrade to my aging 4770 system (non-K). When I installed it, I noticed a fairly gnarly scratch on the bottom of the CPU cooler, that I'm wishing I took a picture of now... but decided to install anyway since it never gave me an issue with my 4770...

    I have an aging haswell machine that was repurposed to a CAD & other general “work” workstation/rendering/Virtual Machine/server (and light gaming), from a gaming box. It’s using an Intel 4770 (non-k) and recently upgraded the RAM from 8gb to 16gb. I’m also swapping the GPU from an Rx480 to a...

    Need suggestions for 1080p bedroom TV

    So I currently have a 55" Plasma in my bedroom, but it produces quite a bit of heat. On top of that, it's an older model so it has minor issues with image retention... and since one of the main uses for this TV is gaming on my Steamlink, I certainly don't want to ruin it by using it for extended...

    Just an FYI (I guess). SUPER impressed with Zotacs RMA

    Just figured I'd give others a heads up in light of all the RMA horror stories I've seen going around here lately. Zotac deserves a little praise IMO. I got a Zotac GTX970 through via a deal on here a few months back. Everything worked great for a few months and then I started having...

    GPU memory failing? RMA or wait? Can I test myself?

    So I got a Zotac GTX970 for my workstation/server a few months ago. For the most part, the card has worked just fine... until about a week ago. I came into the computer room to do a few things and noticed that when the display woke up, most of the screen was covered in pink and green colored...

They also have a decent heat rating, although not a very long history. But the point being they seem to be a somewhat active trader...
