    Harbor Freight 25% off coupon off anything, in store or online

    The place is perfect for tools for jobs you may only perform once in your life :) But seriously, saved some serious cash there for some for some decent hand tools, how many times am I going to replace the bathtub valves in a 50's house that I sold a while ago? Who knew that required a...

    Cryptocurrency Mining Slowdown Could Lead to GPU Price Cuts

    GTX 1660Ti reviews out

    How long realiistically should I wait for AMD to respond, or should I just say F it and order a 1660ti. At the moment Im only running 1080p, Mostly Overwatch, and a little of that Apex legends. I do play mmo's but they are hardly ever that bad unless there happens to be an "event".

    GTX 1660Ti reviews out

    Im still running a 960. 2-3x performance at a reasonable price. Has my upgrade finally arrived??? Or do I wait a couple weeks for AMD to respond to this. I cant imagine they would just let the market slip by them forever.

    GTX 1660 TIs, Radeon VII and X570 Motherboards Listed on EEC Website

    While I have high hopes the pricing rumors are true on the 1660ti, I find myself wanting to wait for a response from AMD to this new card. Can this possibly be the catalyst to get us back to decent @200-250 dollar cards we used to be able to get? Video cards didnt used to cost the entire...

    Magic Leap Shows its AR Prowess Off...Finally...Maybe

    I had gone to a Signal event a few years ago where they had Magic Leap there. Back then they were saying there was no device needed in front of your eyes, that it would tap into the "analog signal your eyes use from your brain". I know this isnt the exact quote.. but its obvious they have...

    Case for HyperX Revolver S headphones

    I recently upgraded from the HyperX Cloud II to the Revolver S headphones, only to discover the case I was using for the Cloud II no longer fits the new set. The metal band on these makes these significantly larger. Has anyone found a good carrying case for these?

    Avoid Threadripper Reboots For Switching Game/Creator Mode

    Quiet video card

    With the announcement that Nvidia is pushing their production up, im curious if I should wait for the new cards to arrive to get in on that "not the latest and greatest" discount. I suppose I should have mentioned I try to stay under 300. I just dont ever get the benefit of having that...

    Quiet video card

    Every couple of years I ask the same question of this forum, and have yet to be disappointed. What is the current leader in terms of quiet, and still able to game at 4k? I currently have an nvidia 960, its working ok for me, but some games at 4k just don't play that well. I value quiet...

    Microsoft Releases 248GB Patch for Gears of War 4 on Windows 10 PC

    Ive used well over a terabyte even trying to install Gears of War 4 so far. I think i've given up. The first time I tried to install it, I came home to a 160gb of 96gb downloaded and it showed no sign of slowing down. Every time after that, it gets to about 60gb, then blue screens, reboots...

    Music does not use my sub since video card upgrade

    This kind of resolved it :) I had updated my nvidia drivers to the latest, but it still didnt resolve the issue. I had indeed checked the speaker settings, and it did change when I first installed the card, but as I was saying.. games / movies used the full 5.1 with no issues so it was...

    5yr old pc. Looking to replacing some fans :)

    And now it seems it has dropped a few decibels in noise just from blowing it out. The high pitched whine has gone away. The CPU and GPU fans were caked in dust bunnies. Not to mention the powersupply, it was spitting demons for a few minutes while it got blown out. Im fairly sure I expelled...

    5yr old pc. Looking to replacing some fans :)

    It's the plan for today. Im guessing it's been at least two years since I cleaned it out. Dang kid! Copied his movies to a flash drive so I can clean it out well while he chills :) I'm guessing I may have some forum worthy pictures of dust soon.

    5yr old pc. Looking to replacing some fans :)

    After looking at some photos I think I have the Cooler Master 690 It has 120mm fans all around. I have a fan controller to keep the noise down on the case fans. I'm not certain it's the case that's the issue. It used to be quieter than it is now. I assumed the fans were just getting old...
