    HOT ! Various 1TB NVMe with coveted E12 Controller $135 aprox retail

    They most likely bought it brand new and it came with it. My new Corsair MP510 960GB came with ECFM22.5 and using the corsair toolbox it shows both 12.3 (my older MP510) and 22.5 (new MP510) as the "latest" without any new updates.

    Apparently there is ECFM22.5 floating around, Corsair last month said it was a bug with the updater but some people have uploaded on userbench that show the 22.5.

    9900K Runs HOT!

    Check if you have MCE (Multi Core Enhancement) on. The new versions of Prime95 uses AVX so of course its gonna get toasty. If going from 48-50C to 40-43C just from MX-4 to MX-2 then theres probably some mounting issues, maybe its not on tight enough or do a proper criss-cross when tightening.

    Asus GL503VM-BI7N13 1060 Laptop $1050 Best Buy

    I mean you could configure it to your needs but the 8th gen is definitely worth it over the 7700HQ. i7 7700HQ 4/8= Quad core, boosts to like 3.8GHz on single core but on all 4 cores you're probably around 3.6-3.7>GHz? maybe and HQ is not unlocked like HK. i5 8300H 4/8 = Quad core, even this...

    Asus GL503VM-BI7N13 1060 Laptop $1050 Best Buy

    970M to 1060 is a big jump, 3GB isnt so bad if you're just sticking to 1080p gaming or if its like Bethesda games keep the mods at a minimum or normal textures. tbh though, I would spend an extra $500 to jump to 8th gen. Not really a big fan of the 7700HQ. At least with $500 you get 6 cores...

    Removing backplate from a 970

    If the backplate has thermal pads on the ram and vrms/backside then it will add better temps, if not then it will just help with sagging and such, but will depend mostly on how heavy the cooler is. On my MSI 970 gaming I don't have a backplate but doesn't sag, others have reported some minor...

    Should I replace my wireless network card?

    Should I replace my wireless network card?

    If you have a smart phone try testing the wifi on it (with the same distance from your computer to the router) after that test it again right beside the router. If you get the same results then it may be the router thats holding you back. If you get an even higher results then it could mean the...

    Worth applying good thermal paste to GTX 980?

    Ah true, yeah I was just wondering since I've seen these cards idle real low and load not so bad so I was thinking the stock thermal paste isnt so bad. If you have quality paste I would go for it! I think I did that on many of my video cards in the past minus my MSI 770 Gaming since it had that...
