    Is the RTX 4090 FE vaporware?

    Just got a 4090 FE from Best Buy. Looks like there has been a couple of drops that lasted for 2 minutes so far today. I saw a blue bar that says "see details". I was able to add it to cart but it then told me it was sold out. I kept on adding it to the cart anyways and after 4 attempts in...

    Fractal Torrent

    I just got this case to replace my ancient Haf X. The temperatures for the CPU went down 10 to 15 degrees. Same cooler, Arctic Freezer II 360, mounted in front for the Torrent and was on top for the Haf X. Temperatures for my GPU, RTX 3090, went up around 10 degrees. I just did a FurMark...

    Poll: Alder Lake owners: were you able to get a cooling solution for LGA 1700?

    Took a week to get the LGA 1700 bracket from Arctic Freezer for the Liquid Freezer II 360. I just ran Cinebench and my highest temperature was 80 C with no overclocks on the 12900k. Prime 95 showed 50 C on the blend test. So the cooler seems to be doing fine. It took me a while to get...

    Poll: Alder Lake owners: were you able to get a cooling solution for LGA 1700?

    I had a Noctua NH-D15 chromax.Black with the LGA 1700 conversion kit but decided to send it back to Amazon based on the high temperatures in the reviews of the 12900k. I replaced it with Artic Liquid Freezer II 360. The LGA 1700 conversion kit is on order. Hopefully it comes soon. I got the...

    Alder Lake launching November 4th

    I was going to use my Corsair liquid CPU cooler but their LGA 1700 conversion kit has been out of stock so I ordered a Noctua NH-D15 chromax.Black. I just hope it fits next to my RTX 3090. Looks like it would be a tight squeeze. I got a cheap motherboard, the GIGABYTE Z690 UD AX DDR4 since...

    Anyone snag a 3090 today?

    I got mine today from the Best Buy drop last week. Edit: Here is a picture of the box like everyone else is showing instead of my dusty case. My computer did crash and restarted when playing MS Flight Simulator 2020 but with no other games. I might have to upgrade my Corsair HX 850 watt...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I wonder if 10 GB of memory would be enough for a Pimax 8KX especially if used for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. I heard that game is using more than 10GB on one 4k screen. I have an Oculus CV1 right now but I want have the ability to upgrade to a Pimax 8KX or something similiar in the...

    Self Driving Mini-Bus Takes to the Streets in Vegas

    Based on the pictures of the accident, looks like the truck driver was backing into the dock and his cab swing around and hit the bus. If the bus was operated by a regular driver, he/she would most likely have stopped several feet back to give the truck driver room to back into the dock. Most...

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    I tried to get to 5.0 but couldn't. The highest voltage I tried was 1.35 but the temperature got to 99 on AIDA64 stability test and vcore showed 1.394 on HWmonitor. After 3 minutes the computer freeze up. I was able to overclock to 4.8 using 1.2875 volts and it was stable but I only ran...

    Core i7 8700k temps

    My temperatures are getting high also but I'm using a corsair hyrdro H100i v2. If I use the new Prime95 ver 29.3 I get around 89C, and if I use Prime95 ver 26.6 I get around 69C (small FFT) This is with no over clocks. I installed the cooler with the stock tim on the cooler so I'm going to...

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    Yes, that was with SSAA 4x on and Direct x 11 for Tomb Raider. Still I expected more improvement in the other benchmarks compared to my old computer. At least cpu intensive games such as x plane showed a huge improvement and future games that take advantage of all the cores will run better.

    Intel's 8th Generation Core Family - Coffee Lake (LGA 1151, 6C/12T)

    I finally upgraded my computer from an i7-920 to an i7-8700k. I did a few graphic benchmarks to show the differences between the two processors. 3dmark showed barely an increase in frame rates except for the cpu test, Superpositon benchmark showed about a 7% increase, and Rise of the Tomb...

    The Top 5 Worst CPUs of All Time @ [H]

    The AMD K6 with 3DNow! was the worst processor I had to deal with. It had most blue screens of death and computer crashes I have ever seen. Constant integer divide by zero errors. I believed I figured that error out but by that time I had enough dealing with it and got rid of it after owning...

    Apple Staffers Reportedly Rebelling against Open Office Plan at New $5 Billion HQ

    I use to work for American Express travel in the MIS department way back in the 1980's. We had an open office environment with large desks and your closest colleague was at least 15 feet away. I enjoyed the layout and didn't have any problems concentrating. The other day I saw a picture...

    Star Wars Spin-Off Will Reveal How Han Solo Got His Name

    Being that HARDOCP is out of Texas, Kyle owning a Dodge Viper, and reviews based on performance and overclocking, it is my assumption that this website is most likely right wing. If HARDOCP was headquartered in Silcon Valley, Kyle owned a Prius, and the website only reviewed laptops, tablets...

    my i7 980X is 7 years old!

    I'm still running my I7 920 but upgraded my memory to 16GB since last time I posted about it because Just Cause 3 was running a little choppy. I was going to upgrade to Kaby Lake but after seeing the disappointing reviews I'm going to wait for Cannonlake. I have a Gigabyte G! 1080 video card...

    Oldest CPU pairing with a 1070/1080 GTX?

    I'm still have a I7-920 running at stock speed, 2.66 GHZ with only 6 GB of ram and just got a GTX 1080. I played Rise of the Tomb Raider, Doom, GTA 5, and Witcher 3 with everything maxed on a 2560x1440 Acer Predator monitor and every game runs smoothly. The only game I had some lag on was...

    Xbox One blocks used games - goodbye MS!

    According to an update on the article if you install the game on a different console it automatically deactivates the other install. So you couldn't split the cost of the game. Unless you don't connect it online?

    Which 670 to buy?

    @Particleman. Nexuiz just got released today for $10 on steam. It's a fast paced shooter but it's poorly optimized IMO. I can't max it out using sli 460's (1920 x 1200) and somebody else only got 60 fps on a 680. Back on topic: Gigabyte or ASUS GeForce GTX 670 Direct CU II TOP for me...
