    Hifiman HE-35X $90 Preorder at Massdrop

    I wanted to post my thoughts on these: 5/5 Stars Overall, the Price/Performance Ratio of the HE-35X's simply can't be beat. These hit all the marks of the originals while improving on every front. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an entry into audiphile goodness. Disclaimer: I use...

    The cheapskate watercooling Vega thread of chaos...

    I think Timespy is free and the Extreme/Ultimate/4k tests are paid. I know i bought 3DMark on sale on Steam for like $5 and it came with a bunch of the benchmarks. I'd love to see your scores! Healthy competition :)

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    I agree with benchmarks being a good reference point but needing to adjust the settings for individual games. I have had factory OC'd cards that I had to downclock to stock settings because they would CTD during gaming for a few MHz. So far the only problem I've run into with these settings are...

    Guys I greatly appreciate all the info and advice!!! This might sound corny but this has helped me get comfortable with going down the full custom liquid cooling route for my next build. I want to put up some pictures of what I ended up with as well as some 3DMark records that I broke as a...

    Update : I snagged an Alphacool Eisbaer 280 cpu AIO cooler on fleabay for $50 including shipping, but the REAL update is the pump on the Vega cooler seems to be working fine now! The 120mm radiator on the Vega sounds like it's not completely full and I'm wondering if there was air caught in the...

    Yes! This is what worries me about the fittings and really the only reason why I'm apprehensive about going down the custom loop route. Yes, definitely going to do the CPU also which was why adding to the loop with more Alphacool attracted me. I have been using Corsair AIOs since the H50 for...

    I didn't realized they made VRM & MOSFET water blocks separately. That might be an interesting way to go. My hesitation with going all custom is in the connections. I've heard horror stories about not getting the connections properly set and having leaks right away or worse having those leaks...

    I love deals. Every one of my tech purchases is waiting for a particular piece of hardware to go on sale and I'm frequently buying last gen's hardware when the new stuff gets released because it's price dropped or stock floods eBay. Sometimes this doesn't work out. I get into a deal but then...

    What android email client do you use for work?

    Thanks, I tried k9 and was seriously disappointed. It seems like everything I try out just makes me realize how good TouchDown was. But then again I'm also overlooking the random crashes once a week and the absolutely atrocious interface, but you know... Rosy colored glasses right?
