    Actually I was looking at the 404k also. Can you see if it has the same back-light edge problem? Any other feedback on the display you got?

    Wasabi Mango UHD420 42" IPS 4k Monitor w/ Freesync *Pixel Perfect*- $679

    I went through the overclock thread and I believe an important point that should be very apparent is that the back light does not seem to extend all the way to the edges so ~19px all around will "disappear" when viewing at an angle. So far I've seen two people on the OC thread mention it but...

    Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10" (REFURB) - $179

    Got mine in recently. Great little tablet. My only gripe is the on-screen keyboard is HUGE. Takes up half the screen in landscape mode.

    Anyone have any Logitech warranty experience?

    Very positive experience as well. I've gone through more than a few Z-5500 speakers control pods and every time, they just send me a new set. Same experience with my G5.

    Hi guys what do you think that is better for MMO games? I'm deciding between Razer

    I tried both a couple years ago when I was getting back into WoW arena. I found that I greatly preferred the Razer Naga Molten over the Logitech G600 due to the way it fit in my hand and how the keys were positioned and notched. For the mousepad, I needed up with the Razer Sphex. It's cheap...

    I can't get away from the!

    Coming from various Logitech MX518 and G5s for general use and FPS, I was recently in the market to pick up a new mouse. I tried reallllly hard to like the Logitech G502 but it ultimately fell short in the ergonomics department (fantastic sensor). The G502 in my opinion seems to be targeted at...

    Can you swap out keyboard keys to make it totally silent?

    Not if the switches are plate mounted. You'd have to de-solder all the switches and separate them from the plate.

    Can you swap out keyboard keys to make it totally silent? Generally, they're thicker than ABS so they don't rattle or make a tinny clack when it bottoms out.

    Can you swap out keyboard keys to make it totally silent?

    I agree with this. The o-rings will only help damper the sound when the keycap bottoms out but the audible click will still be there. The most dampened sound you can get with blues will be with PBT and the blue o-rings from WASD. If he can afford it, mx browns would be ideal. I was actually...

    Biggest pet peeve with modern mice?

    5960X $888

    He was just asking if it would be possible to run on 500w. Also, just because the PSU is cheap doesn't mean it's crap. There are plenty of PSU in the $50 range that do very well. First thing that comes to mind is the Corsair CX500 that got very favorable reviews and comes to ~$29.99 after...

    Samsung 840 EVO 1TB Half performance

    If you're using the drive on a X58, it is very likely you're using a Marvell controller at x1 pcie. Not surprised at the performance hit. Also, prolonged use for the RAID 0 on the Adaptec 1430SA isn't such a good idea just because of TRIM. Crystal as your only reference isn't such a good...

    Alternative to SR-2? Need dual 1366 mobo

    Thanks for covering that. I missed that when I read through. Here is from the manual: "up to 48 GB of DDR3 Unbuffered ECC/Non-ECC 1333 MHz/1066 MHz/800 MHz memory in 12 slots"

    Alternative to SR-2? Need dual 1366 mobo

    do you have any complaints with your X8DTi Not really but it has been a long time since it's been in use. It was running with some x5680. And if I paired mine up with a x5650 could I use 1600 or 1866 ram or do I have to use only 1333. If it's cheaper for me to use non ecc/desktop ram do you...

    Questionable Hard Drive Packaging - What to do?

    Alternative to SR-2? Need dual 1366 mobo That one looks like your best bet. AIO will mount like any other board since the mounting points are the same as the consumer 1366 boards.

    Alternative to SR-2? Need dual 1366 mobo

    If you don't care about overclocking, check out the Supermicro X8 line. I don't believe it has gone EOL yet. SATA 3 Unlikely and if it does support it, that gen's x58 platform (and equivalent) had SATA III via Marvell with a 1x PCIe...

    Slow intel 3500?

    R.I.P Storm Trigger (Blue)

    Did you try the keyboard on a different system? I noticed that with my trigger, sometime the keyboard pulls too much power from the USB port causing it to get unrecognized. Starts working again after a while.
