    What's the realistic lifespan of bookshelf active speaker?

    I honestly expect my active speakers to last until I want to get rid of them, which is to say forever. I haven’t had a failure in my lifetime

    Logitech Switch Issues

    That’s interesting. I have g502s for many. My ears now without an issue ... but can’t say that about Logitech’s keys. They fall apart just by looking at them.

    Caught the upgrade bug, upgrading from Crucual MX100 128GB to 2TB SSD or 2TB nvme (X570)

    I’m in the same situation right now, i did a stupid and bought 2 256 m2s years ago and it was never enough space. Trying to decide on a 2 or go double again... but this is for a laptop, I’d just go big in a desktop

    GTX 1650ti thread - Another AMD threat

    agreed. I don’t buy much hardware anymore, but when I do I am old school and I go for the second from the top.Back in the day, far fewer choices and usually the second card was value for the money and could play most anything out there

    MSI motherboard RMA issues [poor customer support][

    That makes sense, and its likely what i'll do.. if it were dead, I'd have already done it. but technology moves a bit fast for that. no point in me buying a 4-500 dollar X99 mobo when i can get a 7800x and a mobo for 650. 'advanced rma' is the modern norm. I was actually surprised when they...

    MSI motherboard RMA issues [poor customer support][

    No, its having issues with one of the USB hubs being turned off. was having post issues with USB code, two techs confirmed they believe it a motherboard issue. The issue that prompted the tech to act in such a way was that I requested an RMA where I would get my board before sending mine back...

    MSI motherboard RMA issues [poor customer support][

    A member of the MSI customer support staff just told me I was a wasting his time and hung up on me. I actually asked him, if, in fact, on this recorded call he was telling me that I was a waste of time.... and he said "yes", and explained why. Would not get me a supervisor. Basically, I have a...

    Selling my RX570s to upgrade.. what to get

    Not gonna bite on the frontier edition. in order to get it to work with 6 monitors, i would need a Displayport hub. I have one at work, and all i can say is that they aren't the most reliable (in my experience). Sometimes the monitors on the hub will go black, then come back. sometimes i will...

    Selling my RX570s to upgrade.. what to get

    So, i basically bought my RX570's a day before the craze. I am going to dump them off now for as much as I can get. Heres the situation: I have 6 1440p 144hz freesync monitors. I am currently testing a GTX 1080 founders (because they had it at the local BB) The GTX 1080 runs very smooth and...

    i7-6850k how high to OC?

    ah, that sucks. My 6800k did 1.25v@4.2 no worries. I ended up setting it at 1.21v and 4.3ghz for the 6850k. Stable in prime, low in temps. When i went up in voltage, the temp would quickly rise. I have my fans all running 1400 rpm, so im not pushing that either. im maxing in the 70's on...

    i7-6850k how high to OC?

    Ok final go around. 4.6Ghz 1.33v 1421 CB R15 190 single core. 59C max under load I'm stopping here edit: oh let me just retract that. Small FFTs in prime95 destroyed me. Back to 4.4 or possibly 4.2

    i7-6850k how high to OC?

    Ah. Makes sense. I just got done reading at silicon lottery and it seems they wanted under 1.44v at 4.6. I believe you are correct for my purposes. I got this from silicon lottery " 1.44V/4.6, 1.408V/4.5, 1.376V/4.4, 1.344V/4.3." So, It seems like it is not worth it to go over 4.2. I will try...

    i7-6850k how high to OC?

    I just put in a 6850k and I was pretty surprised. I am running 20c idle, and 40s with load in prime95. This is OCed at 4.2ghz with 1.2v. My 6800k took 1.25 volts to get the same oc and was easily 10c hotter. Is there any reason to push this or not? How high to 6850's get usually?

    XF270HU Dec 2016 build date dingy whites?

    I have six of these monitors, and all of the Nov 2016s look great. The two dec 2016's look dingy in comparison. I have two video cards, 3 displays on each card, the Dec models happen to be my middle displays. No cable issues no card issues, etc. All 4 nov models look identical, 2 dec models look...

    I will see what i can do wit h the fan profile. I called powercolor and they told me those temps were normal... told him i was running an asus x99 deluxe 2 (he asked what motherboard) and then he asked me if it was an intel or amd cpu *shakes head*

    Powercolor RX570 Red Dragon overheating

    I bought 2x powercolor red dragon GPUs... i tried to return them yesterday due to their excessive heat. However, they had no other RX570/580's. My GPUs are running 60-70 degrees at idle. At 80, they shut off. The fans are not kicking in much, run ning 380rpm at idle. I tried using wattman to...

    First full work day on Ryzen, have some questions

    my temps were in spec. all my screen shots show that. I believe my cooling to be just fine. Could be wrong. Once again, doesnt matter at this point. Fixed the problem. Thanks to all who contributed to this one. Maybe next time i'll stick it out :P

    First full work day on Ryzen, have some questions

    well, its 70 miles to the nearest microcenter. So, when I got there, I decided that I would swap the whole platform. Was I wrong? I dont know. It cost me more to go X99 ($200 extrra for the mobo, i htink there was a deal on ryzen), but I know this platform will be stable. I got one of the top...

    First full work day on Ryzen, have some questions

    I don thtink so. Right now i am having fan speed issues. I booted and all the sudden fan is going nuts for no apparent reason. I think i've about had it with Ryzen. I certainly am not getting stuck with this outside my return date.

    First full work day on Ryzen, have some questions

    I am not blaming the CPU here. If anything, I am blaming the entire hardware set. I am making some assumptions, yes, but I know I would not have as many issues crop up if I simply bought intel. Example, I had to run a beta bios simply to clock my ram to its normal specs. I know its easy to...

    First full work day on Ryzen, have some questions

    I no longer have an AM4 back plate either, so that isnt an option... i have a ... custom... am3 backplate. I would have to source a new back plate and mount. Cooling is working fine though. The cooler mounts based on tension, and I have tension. Also, I have correct temps according to Ryzen Master.
