    3770K to 2700 or 2700X?

    Slight thread resurrection. Not coincidental to the 2070 coming out at all. :) So the 1080Ti is out of the cards at the moment. I just don't want to spend that much on a new video card unless it's absolutely necessary to play my games at 4k. Most of my games are older, non-AAA stuff...

    3770K to 2700 or 2700X?

    So, my 3770K rig is getting a bit long in the tooth and I keep waffling back and forth on whether to upgrade it or not. It's primarily used for gaming, with the occasional video edit and I'm just not entirely sure there would be enough of a performance increase just yet. What I've got now...

    Kaby Lake 7700K vs Sandy Bridge 2600K IPC Review @ [H]

    Nice to see someone actually do the comparison. I'm still running a 3570K @ 4.2GHz that I got sometime back in 2012 with an R9-290X, 32GB RAM and a Samsung EVO 850 SSD on a Z77 motherboard. Every once in awhile, I get the bug to build a new rig, but never really find an incentive to. I've...

    Gotta get rid of the Surface RT

    I went ahead and ordered a refurb i5 Venue 11 for her. We have a couple Atom based ones at work, so I brought one home for the weekend for her to try. It was far better than the RT, but there was still a slight, yet noticeable lag. She keps trying to steal my i7 Surface Pro 3...

    Gotta get rid of the Surface RT

    So my wife made an impulse buy awhile back and got a first-gen Surface RT. It makes an excellent paperweight, but that's really about all she's able to use it for. All she ever really does with the thing is play Flash-based games on Facebook. It chugs bad on anything Flash related. I've...

    My first foray into ITX-land.

    Settled in at 4.5GHz. No real need to try for higher yet. Thing's been solid as a rock the whole time.

    How much juice is your SFF system pulling

    281w with Prime95 and Furmark running, according to my Killawatt.

    My first foray into ITX-land.

    Had it for almost two weeks now. Been really busy at work and only have her at 4.3GHz for the time being. Love it otherwise.

    Lets see those Prodigy Builds!

    Here's what I had before I put the PSU and GPU in. Let's just say cable management is not one of my strong suits. I tinkered around with the four Spectre Pros in push/pull and the two Corsair fans that came with my H100 and ended up going back to the Corsair fans. They kept it about 4deg...

    So I finally got my first SSDs...

    I'm building a new rig in a couple days and the SSDs got here before everything else. So I couldn't resist pulling my Velociraptors out and putting the SSDs in. I've been giggling incoherently since the first time I ran CrystalDiskMark. :eek: This is on my P5Q Pro, so I can't wait to...

    My first foray into ITX-land.

    Well, so much for that budget... :D Went with the 7850 instead, and got my 3570K anyway. And the Asus board... And if one SSD is fast, then two of them in RAID 0 should be a lot of fun.

    My first foray into ITX-land.

    Looks like I could conceivably use my existing 240mm radiator with the Prodigy. It's a Swiftec, but I don't remember the model. Looks like the MCR-220. If I yanked the 3.5" drive bays out of there, I could probably fit my pump too. It's a Corsair branded Laing. D4, I think. I'd need a new...

    My first foray into ITX-land.

    So I've decided I'm sick of hauling my watercooled HAF-932 around and I want something more portable. Translation: I want an ITX gaming rig. :D Let's get these out of the way: 1. What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming, Photoshop (or other intensive programs), Overclocking, Web...

    Can I still get away with just a video card upgrade?

    I've mostly been playing MW3 and D3 lately. My taste in games bounces all over the place, so I play pretty much anything. I'd be content running things at 1680x1050 if it meant I could max the settings out. I like using Eyefinity though, and don't mind turning things down a little bit. My...

    Can I still get away with just a video card upgrade?

    I'm still running the rig in my signature, that I built almost four years ago. Think I can still get away with video card upgrades a few more times, or do I need to bite the bullet and build a completely new one? EDIT: I don't do nearly as much gaming as I used to, but I'm looking at...

    Just got a nook color

    Another vote here for CM7. I'm using 7.0.2 on mine, overclocked to 1.1GHz. Probably the best $250.00 I've spent lately.

    FS: 8GB Corsair XMS2 PC-8500.

    I can't use these because of an apparent compatibility issue with my motherboard. I even went so far as to have Corsair replace them under warranty and had the same issues with the new stuff. Switched over to the G. Skill RAM I have now and everything works fine. I have two of these for...

    FS: 8GB Corsair XMS2 PC2-8500 (4x2GB)

    My P5Q-Pro. I don't remember all the details, but a couple of people over at overclockers.com were having the same issues. Lemme see if I can hunt down the thread over there. EDIT: Here it is: http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=593435

    Athlon 64 Resurrection

    If you've got a Socket 939 board, I've got an Athlon X2 3800, Radeon X1650Pro 512MB, 2GB mis-matched PC3200 and a Thermalright SI-120 you can have for the price of shipping. The motherboard they were all in gave up the ghost when my PSU on that rig decided to let the magic smoke out. I have no...

    Cable management? (Help me fix this rat's nest!!!)

    No, it's not. I've thought about taking the Dremel to it in the past. I'm really liking the looks of that HAF 932 though. My fileserver for my network at home is in a case that came over on the Mayflower, so I could transplant it into the 900 and get the HAF 932 for my main rig. That's...

    Cable management? (Help me fix this rat's nest!!!)

    I've never really cared much about cable management....until now. This is the rat's nest I currently have to deal with inside my Antec 900. I can never seem to get the inside of my case looking as nice as a lot of them I've seen on here and I'd like to know what I'm missing. I'm sure...

    Q6600 and E8400 - Better to NOT overclock?

    Here's my vote for overclocking the E8400. :D Granted, I had to slow it down to 3.6GHz to get it stable for more than 3hrs... I squeezed another 200MHz out of my E8400 and my watercooler arrived today, so we'll see what it can do soon.

    Have I got a big enough power supply for this upgrade?

    My paycheck for a contract I did a month ago ended up being quite a bit more than I expected: I got two of these. Two of these to fill the last two openings in my Antec 900. A pair of these to put in RAID 0 because I can. :D This guy to plug everything into. And two of these because I...
