    EVGA X58, i7-920 CPU, 6GB Corsair XMS3 - bad motherboard, what next?

    Unfortunately, any MB replacing from the X58 chipset will be costly. Most used and even NEW boards are selling for a lot from eBay and even other venues. I have a dead EVGA X58 SLI3 MB sitting here also. Selling the 920 is also not going to get back a lot of money, they sell for around...

    XFX R9-290A-EDFD

    Is there anyone here running the XFX R9-290A-EDFD? This is the Double D model. If you are, who is running water blocks for this card. I've been getting a lot of mixed information on this card. On Swiftech's site, it says that this model is Ref. Design and has blocks available on there...

    Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce

    hey Guys, Just wanted to bring up a older thread, I bought 2 Gigabyte GTX760 4GB just a few weeks ago and notice that when I ordered them (on Amazon) they said Rev 2.0, but when I got the cards, they said Rev 2.1 on the box and cards. Looks like Gigabyte did a refresh recently. The PCB from...

    Hero vs Formula vs Mpower z87

    I have the MPower Z87 board and its a great board for the money. The features are nice, while I don't use all the features available its nice to have.. I have it paired with my 4770K. I initially had issues with the BIOS, but a quick update solved my problems.

    EVGA Dark (New X79)

    This looks to be a great aesthetically looking board, but in the recent years, we have seen more problems with EVGA boards. This is coming from someone that has used multiple EVGA boards from the P67 to the Z68 era... I hope they have fixed most of the minor bugs that are in the BIOS like...

    760 SLI or single 780?

    ^^ That is also true... The new AMD cards that plan to be out in a few months look very promising from the specs we have seen pop up on the next. That is of course assuming they are correct.

    Nvidia GeForce 326.80 Beta

    Corsair 900D on air ?

    Seems to be a pretty big case to use for air cooling. I am sure you can find a much better case that is smaller that will be just as good for air cooling... IMO, seems like a waste to use the 900D for air cooling. You can look at the 650D or even the 600T for air cooling..

    ASUS Official X79 Motherboards Support Thread

    Does anyone here have the Sabertooth X79 and running TRI SLI??? I know the board says it supports SLI and Quad SLI, but due to the PCIe layout, I want to see if anyone is running TRI SLI..

    760 SLI or single 780?

    Sleeving recommendations

    I've used the MDPC-X line of sleeves and I have to say, its great to work with.. I've also used Paracord and Kobra stuff and the MDPC-X stuff tops out at the top for me still. While it isn't cheap, but you do get what you pay for.. I still have some left from a batch I had bought and plan on...

    Upgrading to a 680 from 480 worth it?

    I went from TRI SLI GTX470 to SLI GTX670 OC edition with GTX680 PCB and it made a huge diff in performance. I also upgrade my system that was running 6950 in crossfire to GTX670 SLI and made a good performance boast... Now I have GTX670s in both systems and for gaming its blazing fast...

    NZXT Switch 810 Air Cooling?

    The switch 810 is a great case... air flow for both air cooling and water cooling has shown great results. If you do a google search you will find allot of info on it.. I have considered the 810, but I can't give up my beloved 800D just yet..
