    Why aren't there any Socket 2011 boards with good reviews? Any you'd recommend?

    My son is running the system on a replacement repaired board I sourced out of Taiwan, and I RMA'd and paid for a replacement from ASUS. The system ran fine up until it died, never overclocked other than what the board does by default, Seasonic x850 for power behind a good APC. Some power supply...

    Replacement for Silverstone FT02

    I went from an FT02 to a Fractal Torrent Compact, no regerts. Exterior optical for CD ripping and legacy games, more room for video cards, equivalent filtered air cooling, it all good.

    Why aren't there any Socket 2011 boards with good reviews? Any you'd recommend?

    And that's how you have to temper reviews, IMO many more end users are inclined to post negative experiences than positive, and I have to believe a number of failures are likely the builder/techniques, or power related issues. The smaller these circuits get the easier to damage via OC, static...

    Why aren't there any Socket 2011 boards with good reviews? Any you'd recommend?

    Honestly I'm cool with mostly stock speeds on these fast processors, and the MB's power management. I did the same thing in 2010 using a P6T6 WS paired with an i7-975. That system just got handed down to my children as their gaming rig. Paired with a GTX1070 it runs Battlefield 1080P very...

    Why aren't there any Socket 2011 boards with good reviews? Any you'd recommend?

    I chose an ASUS X99-A II paired with a 6850K and it has been solid. Samsung 950 Pro NVMe works, GTX 1070 works, running with Corsair Veng 3200 (running at 2400), SeaSonic X850. I've been happy so far...

    The Top 3 CPU Coolers of 2016

    BXTS13A used in a 6850k build, doing it's job nicely for the $22.66 cost, though this package TDP is a low 84ish watts running 6 thread prime95...ymmv

    Corsair Graphite 760T Full Tower Case

    Video Streaming on Game Consoles on the Rise

    Yeah count me in that trend for 2011 but Netflix streaming sucked in quality and selection at least through the 360, and after all the bullshit their CEO pulled this summer I canceled the streaming end of it. Still pissed at them:mad:

    Vizio Tells Owners Their TVs Are Un-Repairable

    Went through an ordeal with Panasonic. They took two month to ship an A board for an '08 50" plasma but hey at least I was able to order parts. The repair center guy said that with Westinghouse and Vizio you are basically SOL as parts are unavailable.

    8GB 1600 MHz vs 12/16GB 1333 MHz

    My take has always been to run the tightest timings possible, and I usually paid a premium to do so. I will say most of the articles I've seen marginalize the performance benefit of low latency on DDR3, especially running higher frequencies. The past year or so saw timings for DDR3 increase...

    Half of Netflix Users View From a Console

    A. Netflix streaming sucks ass. 2. My boxen isn't connected to my TV and is in fact in a different room. D. Bluray is the only HD way to fly. Lightning took out my plasma so currently I'm grounded.

    Verizon: Gonna stop the madness and order today

    I was in the same boat as you, first smart phone and all. I chose the droid 2 global and have been quite pleased. Size was a factor as well as battery life, and the d2g has the fastest stock processor out. Features are google instead of bing/verizon crap, swype is nice, size reasonable...

    New Silverstone FT02

    Case internal air temp will be way lower than the PS internal temp. I was going to do the same thing as the case lacks exhaust if anything, and this config would likely run the PS fan even less than it would normally.

    Intel i7 980X vs 990X? What are the Differences? (except +1 multiplier / 133mhz?)

    "Worth the money" is very relative to your needs/wants. I've seen people state the X chips only being worth the money if overclocked to the max, which misses the point in my world of maximum guaranteed stock clock speed with all the power savings options still available and functioning properly...
