    Frys going out of Business

    I am surprised they keep their stores open. The cost for the utilities alone would support closing the stores. I lost track how many times a customer representative would tell shipment of goods were inbound to replenish the shelves dating back to the beginning of 2019. I wanted a Samsung SSD...

    Fry's Electronics: 20% Off In-Store on Saturdays

    Went into Fry's in San Marcos California. Two motherboards on the shelves. Back in May of this year I was looking for a 2TB Samsung that was not in stock and the salesperson said they were waiting on a delivery. Presently no inventory. I be surprised if they make it to the end of the year.

    (Solved)MSI 2080Ti Gaming X Trio fan curve and setting set speed fan issue

    Update: MSI technical support recommended that I send (RMA) the GPU to them or return to seller (Microcenter). I elected to return it and I bought a EVGA 2080Ti FTW3 Ultra. The EVGA allows me to set a fan curve and set the fan at any given percentage speed. So I now have regained control of the...

    (Solved)MSI 2080Ti Gaming X Trio fan curve and setting set speed fan issue

    The default fan curve has my GPU temp at 50 degrees Celsius when idling. Per MSI the fans do not come till the GPU reaches a temperature of 70 degrees Celsius. Gaming under load (The Division 2) temperature is in the high 70 and crested into 81 degrees Celsius with an ambient room temperature...

    MSI RTX 2080 Ti @ CDW outlet $859.99

    Maybe I can shed some light on this GPU. I bought the exact GPU from Microcenter this past Sunday. I am coming from a MSI 1080 Ti Sea Hawk X. I had two EVGA 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid over the past several months (both purchased new from Amazon). The EVGA 2080ti's had a loud whining noise...

    (Solved)MSI 2080Ti Gaming X Trio fan curve and setting set speed fan issue

    This past weekend I purchased a new MSI 2080 Ti Gaming X Trio. I am upgrading from a MSI 1080 Ti Sea Hawk X. Prior to the MSI 2080 Ti I wanted to say with a hybrid card and went with a EVGA 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid. Since May of this year I have went through 2 EVGA 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid...

    Your thoughts on upgrading to a 2080ti from a 1080ti

    I made the transition from a MSI 1080 Ti Seahawk X to a EVGA 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra Hybrid. While the cost of the EVGA card ($1,449 bought from Amazon) is not for the faint of heart. My monitor is an Alienware (AW3418DW 34" 120hz) wide screen and presently I am playing mostly Division 2. I ran the...

    WD 10TB My Book $79.99 @ Amazon + more

    I was reading a review for the WD 16Tb and the reviewer stated, "A very important fact that was not in the WD literature is that there is a hardware encryption that prevents the drive from being read in any other enclosure. In my case the WD Duo enclosure went bad and while the drives were ok I...

    Replacing a 2TB with a 4TB HDD; way too many 1 & 2 star reviews

    GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Discussion Thread

    I initially purchased a EVGA GTX 1080TI FE from Frys and was hoping to purchase the EVGA Hybrid kit. I received three notifications from EVGA it was in stock and within minutes it was sold out and never had a chance to order one. I came across the MSI GTX 1080TI X Sea Hawk in stock at Newegg and...

    What type of 980 TI should I go with?

    I upgraded from SLI Evga GTX 780 TI Classifieds. They were installed in a HAF X case and the top card was always hotter and while gaming (BF4) with a custom fan curve the top card was in the low 70's. Now I have one 980 TI Hybrid and it is at 24 degrees as I type this and while gaming it is in...

    Replacing my U3011 - 27" 1440p or 21:9?

    Why are used HPs so much cheaper than Dells?

    I am currently using a Dell U3011 since 2012. Stating the monitor is trash is very harsh to say the least. The monitor has been flawless and I mostly game with it. The monitor was expensive to begin with and I was able to purchase mine at $1,100 from dell instead of $1,500. I have not...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Too bad Amazon is out of stock and is not listing a time frame when it will be in stock. Amazon is selling it for $799.99 and two other merchants (EY Mall and Bizbuy) are shipping from South Korea for $907 and $909. Hopefully Amazon gets their supply back in stock.

    Best place to sell a macbook pro?

    Another vote for CL. Just be aware of your surroundings. I would conduct the transaction in the parking lot of a local police department. There have been several cases in San Diego County (Southern California) were buyers have been robbed / hurt selling items from CL. Good luck.

    Any Real Advantage of 5930K over 4790K for Gaming?

    I would stick with the 4790K for gaming. If you are doing video encoding and heavily multi-threaded tasks the 5930k would be the better choice.
