    You're Sick

    I am sick. And I'm happy about it. But..... can I get health insurance on that so I can get off work, so I can continue gaming and continue to be sick? Thanks!

    Cooler Master MASTERAIR MA621P Air Cooler for AMD Threadripper @ [H]

    My biggest gripe with this cooler outside of the indicated rat's nest of wires, is that for a 120mm based cooler, for it to be 164.5mm in height isn't great for case compatibility. My Noctua NH-U14S TR4 SP3 is only 165mm and it's a 140mm based cooler. I've used it on my 1950x at 3.8Ghz at...

    Digitimes Takes Notice of NVIDIA GPP

    I'm glad that this story continues to peek....and....peak. This (along with the GTX 970 BS, and 1060 3GB BS) made me sell my 1080Ti. I have a Vega 56 chugging along nicely under water, and an RX 580 8GB as well, so I couldn't care less. I mostly game at 1080p on one box, and 1440p on the other...

    Overwatch Pro is in Trouble for Livestreamed "Racism"

    I don't know if this was intentionally funny on your part, but I almost spit my coffee out of my nose reading this. The OWL is run by a bunch of holier-than-thou idiots who forget that 90% of their players are under 25, and at least 50% under 20.. Being PC is mostly older generation types who...

    GeForce Partner Program Impacts Consumer Choice

    One thing I'm wondering in this thread, and some of the others that I've read, is how open to interpretation is "Gaming Brand Aligned Exclusively with GeForce"? Ie. Exclude, preclude, pretty much mean the same thing --> Exclusive, no? Ie. "Your Gaming brand = Geforce" and Geforce="Your gaming...

    GeForce Partner Program Impacts Consumer Choice

    First off I want to thank Kyle for bringing our attention to this breaking story at his own personal and financial peril. Now, I feel that nVidia has overstepped their boundaries on this one. They provide ONE component of the PC gaming or graphics experience, the GPU with associated software...

    Elmnator's Project Venus Up Close and Personal

    If you've ever used copper tubing for water cooling, you know that to make the bends look this good, it ain't eeeezy. Also the custom case thing is challenging on its own. I think this build kicks ass, but needs more raddage. Just kidding.

    Canadian Anti-Piracy Coalition Calls For Website Blocking

    They mad because they apps only allow you to watch like three of their channels and other little providers let you watch all the channels on any device for 20-25% of the cost. Boohoo. Canadian media providers know there's this thing called the Interwebs but they don't seem to know how to use...

    VEVO Still Serious About Youtube Video Content - Leads Industry

    So this is what happens when Billy Gibbons has a whiskey with Zakk Wylde (who doesn't drink anymore I believe) and form a metal band in Texas? Not bad. How dare you write an article that allows rock and rollers and metal heads to sound like human beings. Fake news!!!!!!!!! Nice article. And...

    US Says North Korea “Directly Responsible” for “WannaCry” Ransomware Attack

    XSPC Razor Neo GTX 1080 Ti Waterblock Review @ [H]

    That's not overkill. I'm still trying to find a way to fit that into a modded case. C'mon now. I'd go push-pull too with 3000 RPM 38mm Ultra Kaze finger slicers. Nice review, Kyle. This block makes my EK 1080Ti block look like a good recycling candidate. Or maybe I can melt it down and sell the...

    New Intel Core Processor Combines High-Performance CPU with Custom Discrete Graphics from AMD

    It was known that Apple was not entirely happy with Intel built-in graphics for a number of years, especially when they started pushing their "retina" marketing, so that is definitely a factor. But congrats Kyle, on the sweet drank of vindication!!!!!!1

    EK Supremacy EVO Threadripper TR4 Waterblock Review @ [H]

    I smell fish. Looking at your setup, there is no way that your setup with a HWLabs 480GTS is being outstripped cooling wise by IPseity's using a core voltage of 1.5v (!!!!!!!!!!!!). 360GTS with Gentle Typhoons at 1300 RPM in push-only dissipates 290 watts of heat, and a 480 is going to be...

    AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB CrossFire Review @ [H]

    Hmmm, great review guys, and thanks for highlighting the frame pacing issues. Although the RX 480 cards are much cheaper than my R9 Nanos in Crossfire, it's shocking to see them perform more slowly and use the same, or more power. I tested my twin R9 Nanos on my i7 4790k at 4.4 Ghz on an Asus...

    From ATI to AMD back to ATI? A Journey in Futility @ [H]

    Shouldn't be hard, most of AMD's engineers are in Taiwan now anyway. The ones that were let go a few years back mostly migrated to nVidia.

    From ATI to AMD back to ATI? A Journey in Futility @ [H]

    I thought this was a good article. Obviously a good reporter never reveals his/her exact sources, but "people who are in and have been around AMD" is good enough for me. I wouldn't have a problem with AMD if they could dominate the medium/desktop market first and then put out the true...

    GeForce GTX 1080: Most Bizarre Secret Paper Launch Ever @ [H]

    I liked this article. As someone who isn't really interested in the 1080, knowing there will be a TI version after that will probably be more 4K suited, I was mildly amused by this whole "Founder's edition" marketecture. Thanks for putting it into a mildly humorous, yet slightly less confusing...

    Fractal R4/R5 claims "Design & engineered in Sweden", so why the 1 yr. warranty?

    I think you're over-reacting a touch. If you don't like the warranty, don't buy the case. "Case closed".

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    I think the Silverstone TJ08-E layout, as well as that used in the KL06B is excellent. My only issue with that case is that it only has four PCI-E backplates effectively eliminating the use of SLi or Crossfire with motherboards that support the extra PCI-E x8/x8 spacing that Gigabyte...

    Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV ATX Mid Tower Chassis Review @ [H]

    AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Video Card Review @ [H]

    I think the [H] review is fair. I was concerned a while back when the specs were released that not touching ROPs one bit was an oversight on AMD's part, especially for a card marketed towards 4K. I don't understand why they shoehorned 4096 GCN cores in, added texture management units, and then...

    Thermaltake Suppressor F51 Mid-Tower Chassis Review @ [H]

    The interior of the F51 is similar to the Core V51 interior which isn't bad. It's bigger than the Define R5. I fit two 360mm radiators with relative ease in the V31, one being a top mounted, thick UT60 from Alphacool I just don't understand why they copied the door and side panel so closely...

    Hey jaychen, I mounted it like this: Don't make the mistake I did. Mount the fan for intake from outside into the radiator. It will be quieter and cool better.

    Fractal Design Define S

    Naw, unless you want a top mounted 360mm or 420mm radiator, stick with your R4. It's a nominal upgrade and only for water cooling. No motherboard has heatsinks that tall so that is a moot point. The Define R5/S take the offset others have configured and ADDED another 20mm so any functional...

    Fractal Design Define S

    No, that's actually not the case (no pun intended). They are the only manufacturer that knows how to make a case where fans/rads hang over the motherboard. The Define R5 and S have fans that are 20mm off-set more than other manufacturers, giving you more space between the fans and motherboard...

    Fractal Design Define R5 - White Window

    I ordered one from Newegg Canada, middle of March. I had already bought one of those overpriced, but beautiful Asus Tuf S (Sabranco) motherboards and white RAM to go in it. After nine days waiting for it to ship from California, I got it on the 27th of March, greeted by the correct box for a...

    FrozenCPU Shuts Its Doors

    Thanks to dekoth-e for monitoring what is going on there and serving the community! FrozenCPU is dead. Mark has no clue how the business is run and thus, can't train any staff. It's pretty obvious that he's just sitting on Facebook in some angry state throwing a bunch of lies out. The web...

    R9 290 still a good buy?

    You will love it. I had the 290x MSI Twin Frozr IV Gaming card and at 1175mhz with the MSI Afterburner power slider moved to max (+100mv) the card's chip never exceeded 78 celsius and the fans were very quiet. In addition the hottest VRM never hit 70 celsius in Unigine Heaven. Excellent cooling...

    NZXT S340 Steel Mid-Tower Case Review @ [H]

    A 360 won't fit up top because of the I/O panel in the front. A 240 with modding will fit though unless you are using a really thick front radiator. I have an Alphacool Monsta 280 in mine mounted in front, with the cable management bar removed, and there is 15mm of space between the radiator...

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    To quote "This new feature of Maxwell should have been clearly detailed from the beginning. We won’t let this happen again. We’ll do a better job next time." Not even an explicit, "hey sorry, we really f*cked up." I'm not a fan of team red or team green, but my R9 290X doesn't...

    Painting Rubberized Texture?

    If you sand it you'll get to the naked plastic surface underneath. It's a spray-on texture from the factory. If you do that, then you just use whatever plastic painting process you'd normally need to, like adhesion promoter plus paints, Krylon Fusion or Rustoleum Painter's Touch 2X, or whatever...

    Corsair Carbide Series AIR 240 Compact PC Case Review @ [H]

    The 380T works for this. I have put a PowerColor custom 7990 WITH water cooling block in it, as well as the GTX 780 Classified Hydro edition without issue. Hey Steve, great review. You did cover everything, and the kitchen sink from my POV. He means physical height not PCB length from PCI-E...

    Petitioning for 970 Refund

    You know, I can't even say that I care so much about the "false advertising" concerning the number of ROPs, and the partitioning of the RAM. I can't even blame reviewers, specifically [H] in this case, because the way they test gives you the "best" settings for the cards. Looking back at their...

    Swiftech H240-X CPU Liquid Cooling AIO KiT @ [H]

    The only orientation the H220X and H240X cannot be mounted in, is at the bottom of the case with the reservoir facing up and the radiator at the bottom. Front, back, side, top are all mounting possibilities as far as I know.

    Swiftech H220-X CPU Liquid Cooling Kit AIO Review @ [H]

    If you are ok with the color just use Swiftech's Hydrx PM. I think it comes in blue or green. Will not void warranty as it's certified by Swiftech to use in in H220/240x. If not, use an ethylene glycol based coolant or distilled with an ethylene glycol additive. Yes it's PWM controlled. I...

    Raijintek Metis ITX [Build Log]

    It's under my "Lil bit" build log. This was originally a Cooler Master Elite 110 case with an I7 3770K undervolted by offset 0.01 v and at 4.3 Ghz with 8GB of RAM and an R9 270 with modified EK water block. Now it's the 4770K at stock with a PNY GTX 970 with Alphacool GTX 670 water block and...

    Raijintek Metis ITX [Build Log]

    There should be at least a couple of inches clearance between the GPU and the side window unless using a large card like an MSI lightning or Asus Strix. Regarding perforating the top it can be done as long as someone is accurate with a drill and has something to countersink and de-burr the...
