    LG 48CX

    Current lack of HDMI 2.1 capable graphics card. The upcoming rtx 3xxx should be 2.1 ready but that'll take a while

    LG 48" OLED is coming

    Is it purely a matter of viewing distance as to why 55" screens don't work well for computer usage? Or are there other reasons? I've been thinking about moving to a 55" for PC usage, and i'll definitely increase the viewing distance to compensate. Just not sure if i'm missing other potential...

    Reeven Justice 120mm CPU Air Cooler Review @ [H]

    haha, i was checking out their lower profile coolers. Not many reviews compared to some of the other SFF heatsinks, but seems to be a good performer too. hmm i wonder if the bends make a difference, now that you mention it. Though, i'd think after all these years of heatpipe technology, these...

    Thinking about going ITX or mATX and smaller. Any unforeseen drawbacks?

    ^ Great casing suggestions. I think those itx casings have the least compromise for the volume. One thing to add - do not obsess over the internal volume so much. I did that at first and many itx casings seemed way too large considering the internal volume. But this is necessary to accommodate...

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    I read through the change log for the different versions, has anyone actually upgraded from the older ncase versions to the newer ones? Did you find the upgrade worthwhile?

    H100i in a Fractal Design Arc Midi case mini review

    What you could do is find the measurements of the MSI/Gigabyte tube length, then do a rough estimation with measuring tape to see if it's long enough. I'm sure you could get the tube length information from msi/gigabyte or online

    Latest i7 vs C2Q benchmarks from Xbitlabs

    i noticed the same thing. i had a 4850 + e8400 oced to 4ghz. In heavy firefights - which happen almost all the time - i couldn't get decent FPS (>60). I downgraded to a 8800GT but at the same time upgraded to a q9550. To my surprise, my minimum fps went up even at the exact same settings...

    seriously? I hope that doesn't mean they suck.. cos i'm getting them in a few hours' time. By the way, i hope you did see the leg at the left side, cos it's looks like an A leg, or am i wrong? :confused:

    I'm pretty sure this is a Galant, but can someone double confirm it with me? And no, the seller doesn't know what model it is lol

    Ikea desk gallery

    Awesome desks!! I just got myself a Galant, it's this model. I'm thinking of getting this extension, but i'm not sure if it'll fit. Almost every Galant extension i've seen extends the shorter end, but i guess i'm kinda weird and i prefer to extend the longer end cos it's broader. Will it work?

    Dirt2 PC demo and Benched DX11

    Thanks for the upload, appreciate the effort. Yea, 1080p's working well and it looks very sweet! There's the button to select 720p/1080p; i think it takes awhile before it shows up, now it's there

    What computer speakers are better than the Klipsch Promedia 2.1's??

    Impulse: Only if you're buying them straight off the audioengine site at MSRP ;) I've seen a couple of guys around here and in other forums that snagged them at pretty good prices. Can't remember how much exactly now, but it was in the 200+. That makes them great value :D I second the...

    Prototype on PC

    Game runs much smoother than i thought it would be; i'm on a q9550 + 4770, playing at 1920x1200 with maxed settings. FPS rarely dips; the graphics look pretty weak, but i guess that's compensated by the hu-uge game world that needs to be rendered. Loading is extremely fast too < - That...

    Poor TF2 performance

    lol seems like i have a pretty similar story to most here. I was on a brisbane 3600 o/ced to 2.5ghz paired with a 8800GT; the fps was crappy - never above 80 and in firefights it'll crash rock bottom. Then i read all the stuff about how TF2 was sooo cpu-dependent. Sold those off, got an e8400...

    Help: Thermal grease stuck INSIDE socket

    Great to know. I did what i could with soft bristles + isopropyl alcohol. Pretty sure i got rid of all the gunk on the pins themselves. Here's hoping the new owner of my mobo doesn't have any problems with it lol

    Help: Thermal grease stuck INSIDE socket

    I was taking out my c2d processor out of the socket and to my horror, some thermal grease found its way into the LGA775 pins. I tried using some pointy metal tools to scrape the thing out but it's quite an uphill task. Anyone with ideas how i can remove them effectively without damaging the...

    q6600 ocing help!

    I'm using a gigabyte p35 ds3p. I've read through most of the guides around, have my fsb and mch volts set to +0.2, trying for 4x800, which i've read, is hardly a problem for most q6600s. Anyway, i bumped the vcore to 3.0625 just for added stability. I primed the rig two days ago and i failed...

    In a dilemma

    The E8500 deal was off; it was 20 bucks more for them compared to the quad. But i do have a e8400 on its way that will probably reach me after the new year. I'm still in two minds as to which chip i should keep. The quad does a wonderful job at multi tasking, but i'm not sure if i really...

    In a dilemma

    Aight, i finally got my rig up and running. I downgraded from a 4850 to a 3870 and guess what, i'm getting twice my old fps with this new q6600. It's crazy how cpu dependent the source engine is lol.

    Question about the q6600 g0 stepping

    Ok this is really odd. I'm gonna get a q6600 from this dude tomorrow and he told me he got it march 07. Here's the thing. The guy's a total klutz at this stuff, doesn't know what a g0/b3 is, so i got him to check out the product code. He said it's a SLACR. I'm kinda confused. I thought there...

    Upgraded to a faster amd x2 6000+ got some questions now...

    Man, just get a friggin aftermarket cooler, and stop obsessing over it. My 3600+ used to run into the 60-70s regions for 6 months 24/7 and no problems whatsoever.

    Give me your opinion on what I should do....

    Wait wait..water cooling just so your card won't die? That hardly sounds like a proper reason to go WCing. The single slot design is just fine. Tons of people have no issues with it and neither have i on my old 8800GT. If it really bothers you that much, why not just get a 3rd party hsf?

    In a dilemma

    In a dilemma

    I currently have an amd 3600 o/ced to 2.8ghz paired with a 4850. Despite what many people say about higher resolution gaming being not that dependent on processor speeds, i can feel the lag, especially in crowded areas So now i have a e8500 on its way to fire up my pc's processing power...

    Taking control of my 4850's power consumption

    So.. i got this card (asus 4850) a few days back and i'm loving the performance. I did, as per kyle's guide, take control of my fan speed too.. But i can't see why i need my card to run at 500/750 idle when i'm surfing the web/watching movies I've tried flashing my bios to the various...
