    Xbox One X Pre-Orders Reportedly Launch This Weekend

    I would get one if they had Halo launch with it, same thing happening to this new one. No release games. I made the mistake of getting an Xbox one and not having anything worthwhile to play on it. Wont happen again.

    Is this a 'OK' mobo for a 6600k/6700k/overclocking? (Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI or another?)

    Looks like that board can overclock for you. Also check the support or QVL to see if that memory is supported. It should work. Good luck! Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI Motherboard Review GIGABYTE Z170XP-SLI (Intel Z170) Motherboard Review

    GA-Z170-Gaming3 audio issues

    I have a problem with my GA-Z170 gaming 3 and am looking to see if I have missed something. Saturday during a game of overwatch the audio alarm on the motherboard started emitting a constant beep. No big deal I thought a shutdown and restart seemed to fix it. Now randomly the audio of the...

    Max of $350 to spend on a new GPU...spend it for me

    I would say for that price range you should look to getting an AIB RX 480, It does not seem like the 1070 is in stock anywhere and if it is I have not seen one that does not exceed your budget. The 1060 might be worth waiting for as it looks to be in your budget. Like others have said ...

    Battle of i5 6600k vs overclock or not.

    Felt like it was the natural upgrade since the 2500k was aging to me. As for the mobo the GA-Z170-Gaming 3 had all the features I needed, the ability to OC somewhere down the line, fan headers, M.2 capabilities . For me I like to be in the 130-150$ range. I had an old gigabyte P67x-UD3-B3...

    Battle of i5 6600k vs overclock or not.

    I was in a similar situation. I had an I5 2500k setup for 5 years that I built in 2011. It was nice but i never really overclocked it and to me the performance was just fine. This time around I did get the 6500 non k and think I will be just fine. I did get the hyper212 evo just for fun and...

    Gigabyte z170mx fan control

    Found this in the manual under the sys fans "Fan Speed Percentage Allows you to control the fan speed. This item is configurable only when 2nd System Fan Speed Control is set to Manual. Options are: 0.75 PWM value /o C ~ 2.50 PWM value /o C." Not sure but it sounds like its pwm

    Gigabyte z170mx fan control

    Interesting since it does seem inconsistent, for example Fan 3 and 1 do not have 0 and 10% and Fan 2 doesn't have 0-30 at least for mine anyways.

    74% of Netflix Subscribers Would Rather Cancel Than See Ads

    This is funny, is netflix not making a profit right now? I just can't see why the price has to go up if the selection quality is the same as its always been. If they are making profit than its hard for me to see any price increase or adds as more money in someones pocket.

    Asus Z170-A network

    I have heard of this before but i am a little foggy on a known fix, might be a fresh OS install fixed it. Out of curiosity does it do it with any browser? Just Microsoft IE or Chome as well? You could get an install file off another pc/flash drive and try that.

    Vive/oculus pc build help.

    I agree a good 970 for 180$ is a fair bang for buck at this point. But that is last Gen, the 1070s will/should hover around 400$. From what I gather about the R9 480 for 200-225 is claimed to be faster than a 970 and 980 but not as fast as the 1070 and 1080. All of which should be substantial...

    I would go with a GTX 1070 if you could, also for 200$ the AMD R9 480 is launching next month i believe. Not sure about the cpu usage in overwatch, using windows tm mine says it is using 40% while ingame on a i5 6500
