    Found, thanks!

    Looking for a 1080ti level GPU with waterblock. Recently upgraded my monitors and the GTX 690 couldn't run them (3x 1440p 144 hz). Planned to upgrade my GPU after getting the monitors, but I got the monitors right before the chip shortage/crypto mania hit. I got a GTX 960 from a cousin, but it...

    As China Hacked, U.S. Businesses Turned A Blind Eye

    Interesting article on how companies essentially allowed Chinese hacking to run rampant. What incentive would they have to stop? Also, yet another classic case of chasing short term profits at the expense of long term ones...

    MSI RMA issues

    Update 3/16/2015: A check is being sent for $183, satisfactorily concluding this RMA. I have a MSI Big Bang Xpower II that stopped turning on for whatever reason. Not sure why, happened out of the blue. MSI does not have any replacement motherboards to send out. They cannot fix my motherboard...

    The venerable HD2 just won't die... Windows RT and Windows Phone 8 ported!

    Windows RT source. Windows Phone 8 source. Hopefully they'll get all the bugs worked out, I can't wait to dual boot RT/Phone 8 and Android 4.1, and eventually 5 as well. Gotta love all the devs for keeping this phone alive!

    Why not to buy a cheap power supply.

    An extreme example, but it demonstrates the potential harm perfectly. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/26/exploding_computer_vs_reg_reader/

    ATH-ANC25 a good budget headset?

    As title says. It's currently available for $35, and I've been thinking about getting a noise-canceling headset. My primary usage for it will be for travel with my laptop, phone, or tablet. I will be using it on cars, buses, and the occasional airplane. Before I have primarily used IEMs...

    AMD FX-8350 reviews

    First off, let's just start with saying OBR was wrong, and Vishera does indeed use Piledriver cores :P There's a lot to pick from, so enjoy. Overall looks to be a good step up from Bulldozer. At Techpowerup, they overclocked both the 8150 and the 8350 to 5.0 ghz, and the 8350 consumed...

    A10-5800k reviews

    Legit Reviews Overclocked to 4.2 on the stock cooler, 4.6 on an AM3 black edition cooler, and 5.0 on a H100. The CPU portion of Trinity used less power than Llano. Guru 3D No overclocking results due to most likely an immature bios. The iGPU in Trinity uses more power than Llano, but not by...

    Preliminary Trinity Overclocking: 5.1 on air and 7.3 on LN2

    Source Not sure why the ID for the LN2 run is blacked out. 1.62v on air is pretty scary, I doubt it was benchmark stable, just validation stable. Looks like they also sneaked in some benchmarks as well. 3.35 points in Cinebench 11.5 at 4.0 ghz.

    A10-5800k and FX-8350 previewed

    Source. 5 ghz on an AIO similar to the H80 is pretty impressive to me. If all chips are capable of hitting those clocks with those coolers, we can probably see 5.3+ ghz clocks on water, provided these don't hit a voltage or frequency wall.

    Question about MSI X79A-GD65 socket

    Hi, Just ordered a X79A-GD65 off of ebay, and after looking around at the socket, it appears not to have the 2011 bracket. In fact, it appears to have the X-socket to make it compatible with 1366 mounting systems. Now, as far as I know, MSI does not have an X-socket feature like Asus does...

    bad bios can cause artifacting?

    So, my 6990 recently started behaving really erratically. Sometimes, it will artifact, but most of the time, the picture would be off. Basically, it's like part of the right side of the screen was moved to the left side, so from left to right, it would be middle of picture, then right end of the...

    Swiftech 140mm radiators?

    Was just browsing today on Swiftech's website, and realized they now have a section for 140mm radiators. However, there aren't any that are listed on the page yet. I wonder if these will be based on the QP or extreme power design. 140mm radiators seem to becoming a lot more common. Now, if...

    Work log: 420 and 360 radiator in Cosmos 1000

    Some of you may have seen my build over in the watercooling forum, with a GTS 420 mounted to the roof of a Cosmos 1000. Well, one of the biggest problems with the case that I found was the lack of fans pushing air into the case, which severely cuts down on airflow. To remedy that, I decided to...

    Should I get a 980x ES?

    I have a chance to get a 980x ES chip for about $400, and I'm not sure if it's worth the hassle and risk. I've been looking for a cheap 6-core, and this seems to fit the bill nicely, except for that nasty Engineering Sample part. He claims it has never been overclocked. What do you guys...

    Patriot Viper II Sector 7: overclocking fun :D

I currently have it overclocked to 1600 mhz at 9-9-9-24 latencies, with 1.56v. Now, I'm currently running memtest...

    HP 2311X for eyefinity gaming?

    Onkyo HT-S9300THX for $180: Should I bite?

    I have a chance to get the Onkyo HT-S9300THX system for $180. One of the speakers is broken, and the receiver is non-functional. There is an Onkyo service center nearby me, only about 10 minutes away, and the system should still be under warranty. However, the Onkyo website says that it requires...

    MSI Big Bang Xpower not saving CPU voltage setting, no VID data?

    Okay, I just got a MSI Big Bang Xpower back from RMA, and so far everything seems to work correctly except for one thing: it will not save the CPU voltage setting. Whatever I set it to, it switches back to auto. Every other setting will save, including PLL and QPI, but not vcore. Bios has been...
