    POLL/Discussion: How do you tweak your Ryzen CPU?

    Initially I was freaked out about voltages going above 1.4 at default settings, but then I read that AMD said that 0.200V - 1.500V voltage fluctuation is completely normal for Ryzen 3 so I left it alone. Mine stays boosted above 4300 all the time at stock settings. I will be trying that 1usmus...

    Walmart is selling Gateway PCs and no the year is not 1999

    Gateway also made some pretty decent 24 inch 1920 x1200 16:10 monitors back in 07/08 with a nice stand that went portrait and was height adjustable. I still use the stand on other monitors til this day because it was standard VESA.

    [WTB] 2080Ti for $400

    Heck, for $400, im in for one as well ;). I figure $400 would be what a non-super 2080 might go for.

    PS5 - The Future of Gaming | The Power of V

    I get them all, I don't really play favorites. I like to collect them and never sell them. I usually purchase the Playstation last which was great this time because I ended up getting the pro, but this time around I may get it first. It all depends on when Gran Turismo releases.

    How do I know if my router is dying?

    I had a similar experience with my Nighthawk. I ended up replacing it with an Edgerouter 4 and using the old nighthawk as an AP. It's been working great for the last 6 months. It rarely goes over 10% cpu usage with QoS turned on.

    Dt 770 pro for gaming?

    I have both the DT770 pro 80 ohm and Sennheiser HD599 (open back) and I prefer the Sennheisers for gaming and the DT770 for music. The only drawback is that your teammates can sorta hear the game sounds over the mic if you crank it up too loud with open back headphones. I'm not an audiophile...

    Manual clocking the 3900x

    Lots of good info from an AMD SME in this reddit post. It helped me when I first got my Ryzen 3700X. Here's a quote: "Please note that it is totally normal for your Ryzen to use voltages in a range of 0.200V - 1.500V -- this is the factory operating range of the CPU. It is also totally normal...

    Creative introduces the Sound BlasterX AE-5 Plus Pure Edition in a white finish with added RGB effects

    I looked into the ae-5 plus before I settled on the EVGA Nu Audio Pro last week. I thought about going the external dac route because of noise etc.. but settled on an internal card instead. Sounds great to me, but I'm no audiophile. Using Sennheiser 599 and Beyerdynamics DT770 80ohm cans.

    Amd chipset drivers

    I just put together the system in my sig 2 days ago and used those chipset drivers. No problems after 2 days of usage including 5-6 hours of COD warzone and 2 hours of Prime 95. Clean install, of course.

    FS:Sennheiser HD 599 SE headphone with bluetooth adapter & aftermarket cable

    These headphones are great! I've been using the same set for about 6 months. They are open back and the material covering the foam cushions feels like velvet and doesn't make your ears all sweaty. Good price if they are in good shape.

    Xbox One X from MS $350

    These are all rumors and speculation and they should be taken with a grain of salt, but yes, I read from multiple sources that Microsoft is working on a second, less-powerful console with graphical power rated around 4 teraflops. The One X is rated at about 6 Tflops and I believe the upcoming...

    Xbox One X from MS $350

    I also read somewhere that this xbox one x will still remain somewhat relevant next gen because it will still be more powerful than the lower tier series x they release next year.

    Logitech G600 MMO mouse - $22.99 @ Amazon/Newegg and others.

    I've been using one of these for a while. Great mouse. Use it for WoW and for Fortnite with the kids.

    Xbox Elite controller series 2

    Yes. The elite 2's have 3 adjustable settings on each thumb stick. I have the left on normal and the right on the stiffest setting to help me with sniping.

    Xbox Elite controller series 2

    I went through 3 different original elite controllers. The first 2 times it was the bumpers and the 3rd time it was severe left stick drift. I've had the elite 2 since launch and have put it through several hours of Halo already. The elite 2 feels like a completely different animal to me build...

    GeForce 2 Titanium

    I was too poor for this card back then so I ended up getting a Geforce 2 64mb mx400. Max Payne still looked better than it did on my buddy's PS2 though.

    GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Launch Review Roundup

    I got one of these for my son last week - an EVGA 08g-p4-3182-kr model. I had a budget of about $800 to spend. If crossfire was still a thing, I would've bought 2 x 5700XTs, but then again he loves using the Nvidia highlights feature so I don't know how he'd feel about that. He was upgrading...

    any good deals on camera security systems?

    I always recommend wired PoE cameras and Blue Iris software installed on a PC with a 4TB or bigger WD Purple HDD. I prefer doing it this way because future upgrades will be so much easier. When one camera dies on you , you simply replace with whatever is best out there since Blue Iris supports...

    What is your favorite brand of Video card? (non-OEM)

    In the last 20 years, I've had Asus, EVGA, Gainward, MSI, PNY, Sapphire, Visiontek, and XFX. I've never had a single issue with any one of these. These days I stick to EVGA for Nvidia and XFX for AMD though - just personal preference.

    *REFURBISHED* ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti - $439.99 + tax & S&H

    Zotac is like Hyundai for me...I know people that buy them and have good experiences with them, but I personally would never buy from either brand.

    166Hz Has Ruined 60 fps Forever

    I can feel a difference in smoothness at a consistent 75hz on my son's freesync monitor, but anything higher and i cant tell much of a difference. I went to a local Lan cafe and they had both 244hz 1080p and 144hz 1440p monitors and I honestly didn't see an improvement. Their machines had 8400...

    Polish Police Arrest Huawei Executive on Suspicion of Spying for China

    I've worked in large datacenters belonging to different ISPs the last decade or so. So many of them use Huawei routers. I wonder if they'll eventually have to replace all of that equipment.

    Nintendo Switch

    I agree. I've played quite a few online matches since Friday and the majority have been fine for the most part. A few have moments of lag here and there, but only momentarily. I haven't noticed the input delay, but then again i'm not a "pro gamer" by any standards.

    1080ti Roller coaster Pricing?

    Not to mention the 2080 gtx has less RAM than a 1080ti. I was on the fence about side-grading to a 2080, but after playing COD:BO4 and watching my VRAM consumption peg 9.5GB constantly, I'm not s sure I want to anymore. I still have a little over a month in my 90 day window so we'll see.

    World of Warcraft Classic Demo Will Be Included with the BlizzCon 2018 Virtual Ticket

    I remember trying to get those high crit pants to drop for my warrior in Dire Maul West back in those days; just getting a group together could take hours of yelling in Iron Forge. On the other end, I don't think any other gaming experience has matched the 3 hour+ 40 man raids of that era. I'm...
