    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    Yeah I don't know anyone who would be willing to plop down more than $400 for a console right my state when we are in a quarantine. It's going to hurt a lot of purses for the next couple of months.

    1700, 2700, 2700X?

    Since this is used for production are you going overclock at all or no? If you are running more than 2 ram modules I'd definitely recommend the 2700 or 2700x for the better IMC, but if its just 2 ram modules then 1700 should be more than enough as the price increase ain't worth it.

    Any worthwhile upgrades from an R9 280x in the $200 price range?

    I would take that 570 8gb and clock it to the moon, but tbh I don't trust mail in rebate. So I would recommend getting a used 390x or a used fury. If ya go the used route remember to get new thermal pads or some paste. Edit: or get a used 1060

    Any worthwhile upgrades from an R9 280x in the $200 price range?

    I upgraded from HD 7950 ($80) to 290x ($125) and it would be worth if you're able to sell your card

    r9 Fury liquid metal application

    So in my quest for better temperatures I tried to apply conductonaut to the gpu well after applying liquid electrical tape. The PC managed to boot into windows somehow without any display output as I heard the windows chime. I removed the cooler and it looked like I should have applied more, but...

    AMD TR 2 32 core? Too spendy? Updated with strong potential price leak!

    That mindset is why I bought a ch6 instead of an el cheapo b350 mobo that went up in price.

    R9 290x

    So how does my R9 290x fair nowadays? Is the Rx 480 8gb finally pulling farther away than it or is it 10-20% still?

    Go home memory prices, you're drunk.

    DDR4 prices dissuaded me from upgrading to ryzen and instead I bought an older platform so I can reuse my DDR3.

    Upgrading from FX 8350

    I don't think relying on synthetic benchmarks is a good way to gauge real-world performance; anyways to put into perspective a G3258 oced to 4.5ghz gave performance almost on par with FX 8350 (almost) and exceeded it greatly in games that only required 1/2 cores.

    Upgrading from FX 8350

    I overclocked mine to 4.5ghz @ 1.45v so I would constantly need my fans to run @ max. Anyways if any of you were in my shoes for 144hz freesync gaming would you stay with an FX 8350 or go with an i5 (both paired with a R9 290x). Obviously I'd go with an i5, but I wonder why anyone would go with...

    Upgrading from FX 8350

    I picked up an i5 3570k + mobo so I can lower fan noise and heat from my R9 290x + FX 8320e (4.5ghz) set-up. Was this a wise decision since winter is coming to California and I relied on this set-up as a heater or is the performance jump on a 1080p 144hz freesync monitor (48-144) that much...

    NH-D15, Fuma or AIO Watercooler?

    Please please focus on power consumption when benchmarking D3D12 (or Vulkan/Metal for that matter)

    Power consumption is nice in estimating how much cooling you're gonna need and thermal head room; you know for that OC that we all crave?

    GTX 780 HOF vs G10 Bracket

    Arriving tomorrow is my GTX 780 HOF and I was thinking I'd swap out the stock cooler and use my H90 on it. I'm planning on clocking this baby to the moon. So far I took a quick glance @ the reference and HOF PCB (List of GTX 780s) and it looks like I might be able to do the swap. The only thing...

    Not sure how well your nephew can play the waiting game, but if he could wait then waiting for the 1060 to come out would be good to see how it compares to the RX 480. If he can't wait that long then shooting for an AIB RX 480 would be good. If he can't literally wait any longer and considering...

    AMD Polaris .. supply problems abound

    I was so eager to buy a RX 480, but due to no stock I settled in getting a 780 to pull me over until the halo cards come out and drop down in price. 2 months without a working, gameable gpu sucks. Thank god a 9500gt can play The Banner Saga 2.

    Accidently ran cpu without aio pump plugged in

    So I migrated my H90 to my fx 8320e from my hd 7950 and I accidentally forgot to plug in the pump. I started computer 4-5 times and all auto shutdown. The last time it did I read the temperature reading @ 90c. What kind of damage would've been done to my processor @ this temp if any at all?
