    [DEAD] i7-12700K $299.99 Micro Center In-Store Only

    I've had to go back so many times to have them price match themselves. Started at 399 then 369 then 349 and now this. Everytime they drop the price and consumers cash in on that price, you're changing the day of purchase to that new date. So you now have an additional 15 days return policy if...

    12600k 12700k already getting big price cuts.

    I've had to drop by MC twice for two price drop matches. 12700 is down to 349.00 -- pretty sweet deal. Of course it's by design as you have to go in to retrieve the refund (and buy more shit one doesn't need) but at least I'm close enough to make such a trip. Just sucks they're not located...

    FS: Complete System was G476 PowerSpec (no discrete GPU)

    See this link for spec: No graphic card -- using that in my other rig now. It has integrated graphics so it's complete (arguably). The Cooler Master 240mm AIO is brand new sealed in box. Unopened KB/MOUSE. It's a rock...

    3 months of Xbox Game Pass for PC for $1

    hey this is a good deal. Came here to recommend it but I see it's already out. A buck to play Forza. Two additional months free. No brainer.

    Update: Microcenter Barebones Bitspower PCs -- Westmont Illinois

    the 3080ti bundle is still a good deal (still avail in my area), and I'd jump on it if I were still in the market. This kind of "deal" sits right between buying a card outright or a prebuilt -- which is the best you can hope for atm. You get the shaft no matter what though :(

    Update: Microcenter Barebones Bitspower PCs -- Westmont Illinois

    I notice the 3080 kits are gone, 3080ti kits still available -- and they're the FE type. Really hoping H members got in on this.

    agreed. The tech is still in its infancy but it seems reasonable that eventually, it will be native in the gaming space.

    is this to say probably not? That device didn't do anything for olfactory senses that's why I ask.

    scent gaming

    I'm kind of embarrassed in reading my thoughts from the past but oh well.... Anyway, I've seen some hit or miss threads over the years and today I spotted an LTT video on the subject. Do you think this will finally gain traction? ...also I think I was high on vics at the time.

    benchmark and priority

    r20 mostly. Couple of hundred points if I recall. This, and I thought something was wrong with my system so that prompted me to ask the question. Since then, I just disable some programs running the background and I'm content with my scores. Also I think CPU-Zs benchmark better if nothing is...

    10900k vs 10900kf

    update: they checked other systems and they too had the same processor as mine despite labels all over the place designating the other variant. I don't really care like I said, just don't give me any crap if it's different than spec'd if I ever need service.

    benchmark and priority

    backgrounds absolutely reduce the score -- this I can confirm. However, I can't help but think those who take these benchmarks real serious don't eliminate choke points big or small. When I bench in with anything higher than normal priority my scores just a quite a bit, especially with the...

    10900k vs 10900kf

    I agree. I called Microcenter though because I was afraid this would somehow mess with my warranty. One scenario I played out was them saying because I switched cpus I voided something -- or along those lines.

    10900k vs 10900kf

    I removed the cooler and it is a 10900k and not the kf variant? Which one is better anyway? I mean, is there a disadvantage to having a IGP?

    10900k vs 10900kf

    No serial numbers on the box. Just marketed as a 10900kf. I know this sounds trivial.

    10900k vs 10900kf

    regarding warranty services if I ever needed it, do you think this is a problem? I mean it says it's a 10900k but my paperwork says otherwise.

    10900k vs 10900kf

    Hey guys. I purchased a PC (prebuilt) at Microcenter. It reads on the box 10900kf but CPUZ reads 10900k. I know they're similar but is this something I should bring to their attention? My receipt and warranty say KF so I'm trying to foresee problems ahead of time. Suiggestions?

    Question regarding UPS reading

    Thank you....I changed the sensitivity to high on that recommendation. It's an older UPS but seems to be working otherwise. Just figured out how to keep it displaying all the time after 8 years of ownership. I have changed the battery once :)

    Question regarding UPS reading

    Thanks for the response. It fluctuates between 123-125v at the UPS. Other outlets about 1v lower @ 122-123. You're saying this reading is within norm? I am an absolute moron when it comes to this stuff :(
