    Any still running an overclocked i7 5820k? (haswell-E)

    4.5 @ 1.3v manual vcore, auto everything else. RAM needs upgrading to push further. I believe I have a decent chip. Figure my limit is 4.7 @ 1.35 v ?? :)

    Asus not releasing spectre fix for x99

    they updated the sabertooth as well - beta bios on the 26th. that wasnt on their original list of supported patches when it first came out. maybe, maybe there is hope. this thing came with a 5 year warranty. if they dont patch it im RMA'ing it or selling it and moving on

    EVGA Warranty Troubles!

    Theres more to it: The sticker did that on its own as well about 2-3 months in, I believe I said that in the EVGA forum post. The brand 'new' card from EVGA they gave me in return (cross ship) the sticker was already broken out of the box. Yeah, my thinking is the VRM's overheated possibly...

    Trying to install win 10 without creating an re partition

    yeah also make sure the bios is set correctly, some bios' have the option for 'windows 8 boot mode' 'windows mode' 'compatibility windows mode' ETC on a particular board i had, it made me choose fast boot + windows 8.1 mode or it wouldnt let me create the partition to install win 10

    Ethereum Way Up This Week

    I really hate the whining.. 'I cant afford a GPU because of the miners'.... 'theres no GPU's'. Yeah, Im a miner, and yeah I paid 1250$ for a 1080 Ti. Did I like it? No. Do I have a choice if I want a certain GPU, no. Guess what, supply and demand kids. Economics 101. Shortages can happen for...

    Apple Seems to Have Forgotten about the Whole “It Just Works” Thing

    Must agree. Apple lost sight of the ball even before Jobs went under! Am an Android person now but.... the Iphone original, 2 and 3G were great phones, revolutionary.

    Display not always picking up computer when powering on (gpu, display, or windows 10?)

    Sony Defends Controversial “The Last of Us Part 2” Trailer

    Vega 64 Eclipses Polaris In Ethereum Mining Efficiency By 2X

    thats all great and stuff but not all cards can be modded. i have tried and failed with different generations.. this is not a guaranteed result if you pick up a Vega card.. also, it still requires 2x 8 pcie connectors..

    Traditional Radio Faces a Grim Future

    LOLOL yea from canada here, radio is actually pretty decent up here in the north... good for traffic, good for morning shows.. although they do replay things over and over, it was really bad a few years ago.. they have toned that down on most stations now.

    Convince me not to SLi 1080 Ti

    At this point, with the money anyone is going to invest within an SLI /CF setup ESPECIALLY at the top end, the GFX MFR's should support dual card solutions more. I know 'its in the hands of the developer' and all that bullshit... Why are you going to lay down $1300 USD+ for something these...

    Why PS4 Downloads Are So Slow

    There was a post on this forum a few months back that no one paid a lot of attention to. Apparently you can create a proxy with your router or some such and it will download at full speed...

    My 2 months of doing nothing (mining) results

    LEGITREVIEWS posted this first... I can confirm that all this driver does is FIX the ongoing DAG issue for AMD cards at the current time. It brought my 480's up to what they were PRE DAG 130 (24-28MH/s unmodded). They were previously doing 20-24. No extreme performance enhancement. Credit...
