    2022 Black Friday Cyber Monday Holiday Deals

    I keep looking for deals on X670E boards, but all I see are price increases and out of stock notices. I can buy a 7900X for way less than the board I wanted with it... if it were in stock. 🙄

    Are you camping out / lining up for an RTX 4080?

    No. I'm staying home where I can snuggle with my 3080Ti 😆

    Slowest cpu any one has put a 3080 RTX in, I’ll go first

    3080Ti paired with an Intel 2600K 😆

    Ordered a 3060Ti got a 3070 instead lol

    Is it brand new? Just make sure to verify that it is indeed a 3070 with GPU-Z, and run some benchmarks. I've seen an uptick in scammers trying all sorts of things.

    Raptor Lake 2022 October at the latest

    I'm curious about the kind of temperatures you see with the Noctua. I have a D15 and I'd like a 13700K but seeing that it is basically a 12900K, I'm a bit worried.

    Gaming, Photoshop, and web browser for the most part. Some CAD and video editing too.

    Raptor Lake 2022 October at the latest

    I really wanted a 13700K, but I'll be using a Noctua D15 and the temps and power usage are concerning.

    EVGA Extended Warranties - Submit Your Ticket, Get Your Refund

    I paid $64 for the 10-year warranty on my 3080Ti before the price changes, so I'd rather keep it IF it means something. There doesn't seem to be clear communication from EVGA if there is an option to keep the extended warranty and if they plan on supporting it. If their plan is to only support...

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    $500 for the Aorus Master?! o_O These AM5 motherboard prices are outrageous! I think I'll be going with the 13700K and a Z690 board at this point.

    Ryzen 4 Reviews Are Out.

    I'm not impressed with Zen 4. Way too much heat for those of us that prefer air cooling, and the performance just isn't there.

    EVGA no longer making GPUs!

    Any word on extended warranties? I have read conflicting stories from people that have contacted customer support, with some being told to ask for refunds because EVGA has no intention to offer support beyond the standard 3 year warranty.

    EVGA no longer making GPUs!

    I purchased the 10-year warranty for my 3080Ti... so this news is a bit concerning! 😆

    Will Zen 4 be the real deal and a worthy upgrade from Zen 3

    I'm excited for Zen 4, but buying anything above $400 without 3D cache is pointless. Why would any enthusiast do that?

    I'm going Z690 DDR5 with a 12700K since I already have one. Hoping the 13700K is a decent upgrade.

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    It seems like there is definitely some luck involved as to whether you get a good panel or not. I've also seen reports of monitors developing scanlines later on, but who knows. Sadly the scaling trick didn't work for me. I also tried changing to 144Hz and 120Hz, changing the black equalizer...

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    I know I couldn't. The screen tearing was horrendous!!! I suppose if one were to sit far enough away, the scanlines may never be an issue. For me though I'm within arms length and it was just too much. Just imagine every other line of pixels being about 20% darker. It's completely unacceptable...

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    I decided to order the 27" G7 from Amazon after returning several other models and fully expected to hate the curve, but I actually like it. What I don't l like though are the obvious scanlines. It looks similar to interlacing, at least to me, and happens mostly on certain oranges and blues...

    IPS Monitor with Stuck Subpixels... Or Something Else?

    I thought they were normal stuck subpixels too at first, but they're so small. o_O I guess I'll just return it to Best Buy, but it is a shame since it was on a decent sale.

    IPS Monitor with Stuck Subpixels... Or Something Else?

    I recently bought a Dell S2721DGF from Best Buy and along with some atrocious backlight bleed, there were what looked like 7 or so stuck green subpixels when viewing darker content. After zooming in with my camera it seems like the tiny dots are about 1/3 the size of the subpixels themselves...

    R7 5800X3D, R7 5700X, R5 5600, R5 5500, R5 4600g, R5 4500, R3 4300 incoming

    5800X3D, if I can find one. I did buy a 12700K but the DDR4 board I want doesn't exist in the U.S. at all. Instead of dumping $350 into DDR5 + Mobo, I'll get a nice X570 board to use with my existing 4x8GB DDR4 kit. It makes sense in my head. :ROFLMAO:

    Fractal Torrent

    Does anyone have problems with fan noise at idle? And how about coil whine and other noises? I currently have a Define 7 and I'm debating whether to dump $80 into Noctua fans, or just grab the Torrent instead. I watch a lot of content on my PC which is why I've always preferred silence-focused...

    Are you bending your alder-lake?

    Pretty clear that the IHS is bending, and will likely get worse as time goes on. The article also shows the differences between washer thickness. https://jisakuhibi.jp/review/intel-12th-gen-alderlake-cpu-and-lga1700-washer-insert-mod

    What Z690 board are you eyeing?

    I agree with Dan_D on the Aorus Pro DDR4, but it is still nonexistent in North America and Europe. I would already be running one if I could find it. You could always grab a few cheaper 4800 DDR5 sticks until higher speeds are released, and then you could have a solid platform with a Z690 DDR5...

    What Z690 board are you eyeing?

    I'm thinking of going with the Aorus Master to pair with my 12700K, although I understand that this combo is a bit lopsided. It seems like a very solid choice for the money, and it actually has decent on-board audio which I need, but it stinks having to pay more for the motherboard than I did...

    Are you bending your alder-lake?

    IgorsLab will have an updated article soon where they tested different boards and the different socket makes. The Lotes does appear to apply less pressure from what I've read, but that could vary wildly between boards since the tolerances that Intel specify are not that precise. What a mess...

    Are you bending your alder-lake?

    I just worry about hitting traces. A metal washer with even the slightest surface imperfections could cause issues down the road. And what about the warranty?

    Are you bending your alder-lake?

    This is not good. I've been following this since Igor's Lab posted the original article weeks ago. So far none of the popular YouTube channels have picked up on it, but we need to change that. Once it gets traction, hopefully then we can start to get some answers. I'd rather not bend a $300+...

    3080 12 GB

    It is clear to nVidia that gamers will pay to play with the latest gear, so it would be stupid to not capitalize on it. 4070 - $699 4080 - $899 4080Ti - $1499 4090 - $1999 At the very least.

    I used the chat feature on their website, and the best advice I can give is to not give up. It took me several tries until I was able to get an agent that was cooperative. Start by just being friendly and saying hello, and that you hope they are doing well. It's always good to be nice! Then...
