    ULMB and overlays

    Anybody else like to use ULMB for FPS games? When you do, do you have issues with either game overlays like steam/origin, or windows overlays like when adjusting the volume knock you out of ULMB mode briefly? Anybody have an idea on how to prevent that from happening, it's quite jarring.

    I've been thinking about jumping into custom water cooling for some time now and am currently trying to decide the parts for my new X99 SLI GTX 980 build. My question is for somebody like myself that is likely to upgrade GPUs every generation: is it too much hassle? It looks like the 980s do...

    Your favourite mouse pad/surface?

    Just trying to start some conversation and get some ideas towards upgrading. Currently using the Func 1030 and using the rough side. I like it, but I'm finding it a little small, I've had it for a long time, and wouldn't mind trying out something new.

    So it seems not all Ivy-E's are disapointing overclockers

    Using a new bios and the RIVE Metalracer over on the techpowerup forums is getting 5.0GHz with minimal voltage, he's even booted at 5.3GHz. Goldenchip perhaps, but the new bios is apparently a huge help in reducing vcore. Check it :

    Worth switching to a QNIX from a U2711?

    I've been getting tired of the motion blur I'm getting on my U2711 for FPS games. Not quite so much that I'm willing to drop to 1080p for the 2D Lightboostn offerings. As tempting as those monitors are, I just can't go below 1440p now that I've been there. I've been waiting and waiting for...

    Hello all, I recently upgraded my video cards and decided to revisit Metro 2033 now that have the power to max it. I've run into a problem though, I get this very strange graphical glitch, it's almost like another image super imposed over what I should be seeing. It's very noticeable when...

    Flash on Android devices

    I recently bought a Sony Xperia Z tablet, it's a great device, I'd highly recommend it, but one of my most used websites ( is a no go due to the lack of flash support on Android. For that matter it doesn't work on my S4 either. I've followed the directions for installing...

    UAC and Samsung Magician on every startup

    I just installed an 840 Pro and the Magician software. Every frigging time I start Windows I get the UAC warning for it.

    BF4 optimized for AMD; marketing gimmick?

    So BF4 is touted as being optimized specifically for AMD hardware. Are there any indications as to what exactly this means? Will this mean the game will have better graphics if played on an AMD gpu? Perhaps it will just run smoother than it would without optimization? Or is it all just...

    When should we start seeing non-reference 780s?

    I'm sort of holding out, mostly for reasons of not being in a rush at all, as I'm upgrading primarily in anticipation of BF4. I figure it may be worth waiting to see if any faster or larger memory versions are released. I'm looking to go SLI so I'd like a cooler similar to the reference so the...

    Will we ever see high res / low input lag display?

    I've owned a Dell U2711 for over 2 years now and my major complaint is that it isn't as responsive as I'd like for fps games. I borrowed my friend's hp27zr for a week and found it was barely any more responsive, and as far as high res monitors go it's considered one of the fastest due to its...
