    Just went from a 3600x to a 5800x

    For sure, what board did you get? Im going to try to sell off my intel stuff and my 1070 to offset the costs.

    Just went from a 3600x to a 5800x

    Nice! Next week im going from a 8700k to a 5900X and Im pretty excited. I havent had an AMD build in forever. The only reason Im switching over is because I got a combo on a 3080 so I figured I might as well use the board :P

    Steam summer sale June 21st

    My friend bought Kingdom Come, he said it was great. He had waited so long for it. Definitely worth it. Im a sucker for Civ games, and I hope Civ 6 comes out on sale. But i've heard some horrible things about it.

    Recommend a good gaming wifi router

    I agree, its just a marketing ploy. They get so much money out of people when they tag it "Gamer"

    A dud 8700k? (overclocking, that is)

    Hopefully mine isnt a dud! I havent started the overclocking process yet. Turbo will go up to 4.7 with little to no voltage increase though. Not sure if that means much. Im coming from a 2600k that was pretty decent.

    Thats what everyone else is saying, and with more people adding to that list... I'll stick to the 920 for now. Haswell will be the next big upgrade for me then!

    Need help choosing a power supply

    HX750. Thats what I would pick. You'll give yourself more head room for anything else you wish to add later on and you can also overclock if you wish to and not worry about anything. You'll be basically buying a unit that you can use later in other units, and not have to worry either.

    Bleeding Loop Help

    The 24 pin power plug, where you jump the psu from, and all that jazz, the only thing plugged in should be the pump. From there when you jump start the PSU all it powers is that little pump of yours pushing the water, that's when you tip and tilt the tower to allow the water to reach its air...

    920 upgrade!

    Hi everyone I'm new here, I post over on EOCF, and others I've got a few questions. I'm looking to upgrade my i7 920. Would just upgrading the cpu be better to say, a 970? or going for a newer 3770k or something? I don't do much but game, Office type work and Photoshop/lightroom. Looking...
