    Solution for protecting various streaming services from throttling

    Well netflix does work over vpn with express vpn. If it says that you're using a vpn, just switch servers. Rinse and repeat until you find one that works. I've had luck with servers in Singapore for a show my sister is watching. However, with the merlin firmware you can just set the netflix...

    Solution for protecting various streaming services from throttling

    Hey, if you haven't found a solution yet, you can try using this firmware for the asus router https://www.asuswrt-merlin.net/ This firmware is similar to the default firmware but it allows more fine tuning when it comes to setting up vpns for specific pieces of equipment. You can set just...

    Your video card time to upgrade criteria?

    I agree with what several other people mentioned and that is a notable increase in performance. I'm still rocking my gtx titan @ 1440p. I haven't been feeling the need to upgrade much since this card still performs well with what I play.

    NVIDIA Unveils The Titan X At GDC 2015

    1300 would be a bit much for my tastes. I'd upgrade for 1000 though..depending on what AMD comes out with. Currently this titan is still great at 1440p and there really is a lack of good games right now to justify the upgrade.

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    The power brick could no longer hold a charge. Previous to it dying, monitor was making buzzing/humming noise from the speakers and the screen started flickering. This started the week of its death. It was quite awesome until last week tbh

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    My EQ276W just died last week.. I think it was just the power brick but I'm not sure. I'm trying to find a suitable replacement for it now instead of playing power brick roulette with the options out there.

    Push vs Pull

    Instead of even wondering about that.. you could just add a second fan (as long as space permits). However, those temps seem really high, it seems like maybe the pump isn't making good contact or the tim may have air bubbles in it.

    Women Significantly Outnumber Teenage Boys In Gamer Demographics

    Well from a marketing perspective, this information is helpful to figure out what ads to put in these mobile games.. after all, the woman's age group does spend 31% more real cash in these games and return to them 42% more frequently then others.. That's about all I take from this..

    How much storage space are you currently using?

    I would suggest picking up a cheap secondary drive if you have the space for it. At least that way you do not have to worry about junk files/torrents. I use my SSDs for games/ OS/ and programs, all other files and saves go to storage.

    H100i

    I'm still using a H110 with the build in my sig. It's been rocking for about a year now cooling my 4930k at 4.4~4.5, (I've reduced the OC to 4.4 recently). Idle temps are in the high 20s to low 30s C and at load it generally stays in the low to mid 60s C (I probably need to clean it, it has...

    Safe to leave external HDD running 24/7?

    I have no idea if any routers will support 4TB and if they do, it may end up reading slow being that the drive is huge. That's just something you will have to check when you are ready to grab the router. Well, I went with 2 3TB reds for the router and thats when I found out it did not support...

    Safe to leave external HDD running 24/7?

    I'm not sure if your router will support your 4TB drive.. I have the Asus 1750AC router and it did not support the 3TB drive I bought for the same purpose. Anyway if you run into the same issue, I would just purchase a 2tb internal drive and use it in an external case to avoid that concern. Also...

    X79 mobo reliability? Asus P9X79 vs MSI X79A-GD45 Plus vs Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4

    Just for your own information, Don't forget to download the bios for the board you choose. I don't think either of those three would just work out of the box. From experience the P9x79 did not boot with this cpu until after the bios update, had to use the bios flashback to get it to boot. The...

    R9 290x with an 8150 w/old mobo?

    Yea there is quite a bit of unknowns when it comes to upgrading right now. It's the whole reason I'm having these difficulties helping my friend with his purchases. He does prefer AMD so I'm almost 92% sure he would purchase their next cpu unless it is a complete turd. I think hes banking on AMD...

    OSX Mavericks? Anyone upgrade yet?

    I've had no luck on my hackintosh so far. I probably need to install some kind of missing something... However, we did install it on a 2010 macbook and the performance seemed much better. We also upgraded one of our office computers (Mac pro tower 2011?) to mavericks and it seems to be working...

    GTX 780/Titan Owners, are you jumping ship to 290X?

    R9 290x with an 8150 w/old mobo?

    Yea.. That's why I was asking about ocing it on the stock cooler. Im not even sure if the stock 8150 is fully using the gtx 680 ftw 4g he has. I haven't had enough time to test out the rig but I would like to be a bit more prepared on what to do if he just shows up with the R9. I know hes going...

    R9 290x with an 8150 w/old mobo?

    Excellent! Thanks Mac, when he grabs the new card this information will definitely be useful for keeping the temps low. The 212 evo would be good, I agree, but I don't think he wants to spend any more money on the 8150. I know he has an interest in getting a water cooler too so if the next...

    R9 290x with an 8150 w/old mobo?

    Well its old and cheap.. it was the free mobo in the microcenter bundle. I have a feeling this kid will most likely buy the R9 when it comes out and wait on getting a new cpu and mobo. Being it was the free MC board, I'm pretty hesitant to even oc that 8150 to 4 or 4.2 and on top of that he's...

    R9 290x with an 8150 w/old mobo?

    Doesn't sound like a bad idea. Maybe a small oc wont kill his old mobo, something like 4 ghz, and the 290x would be a good temporary upgrade. He's running surround(5760x1080p) right now btw.. I forgot to mention that earlier and realized I probably should have.

    R9 290x with an 8150 w/old mobo?

    Okay we've been talking about it for a bit. Sounds like maybe waiting for that Kaveri that NickJames' suggested would be the best option. He's planning on running all AMD parts and putting that 680 into his mac tower. I wonder if there will be an 8/6 core apu from amd though..

    R9 290x with an 8150 w/old mobo?

    GTX 780/Titan Owners, are you jumping ship to 290X?

    haha.. excellent. No, I definitely use CS6 but went with a nvidia card and assumed amd wouldn't be of much use in that area. Thanks for the info raven, I'll keep AMD in mind when something better then the titan shows up.

    GTX 780/Titan Owners, are you jumping ship to 290X?

    I'll probably hold this titan down for awhile, but I would jump ship if the new card out performs this one by a decent margin. The only reason I am hesitant about switching over is because I use cuda for the adobe suite, which I would have to give up for an amd card.

    i5 3570K VS i5 4670K on a budget

    I wouldn't know exactly but I would assume they would both easily hit 4. I had an I7 3770K for a while that ran at 4.5 @ around 1.27. It required a lot more voltage after 4.6. It needed 1.384v to run at 4.8. I wouldn't worry about it, you should be fine with either one at that speed.

    i5 3570K VS i5 4670K on a budget

    If you go the ocing route you may want to consider a nice evo212 or something as inexpensive and efficient. Stock intel coolers suck a lot. edit: unless you have something already.
