    Hot? Microcenter has made the 3600XT effectively the same price as the 3600X

    Good luck finding a good motherboard in stock. I jumped on a similar deal right before there was a shortage back in April.

    Optimus watercooling, has anyone used their products?

    Finally slapped mine on today. Sitting at a cool ~40 "ish" degrees C on my 3900x and the much more enjoyable hum of a D5 pump. I had the stock AMD Wrath cooler so anything was seriously better.

    Optimus watercooling, has anyone used their products?

    Back from the dead but I thought I should reply I ordered a nickle plated AMD Foundation with a black aluminum hold-down plate and acrylic top on April 16th. It just got here today. They just updated their site today about shipping delays.

    Introducing HDMI 2.1 Specification

    Thank you Mr. Internet Police. I just know some vendors will try to fool dolts into buying high priced cables now that there is a new spec. I just read the comments.

    Introducing HDMI 2.1 Specification

    This is great! But what is even more entertaining is I'm waiting for the hilariously overpriced HDMI 2.1 cable reviews on Best Buy.

    Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2 Release Notes

    My crossfire 290x setup crashes everytimeI launch a DX11 game with any 16.9.x series driver. Sometimes a stupid message appears that "WattMan restored my default power settings." WTF?! Just stock clocks here - no overclock or voltage adjustments. I thought WattMan was only supposed to come up...

    Sound Blaster Z and Windows 10

    I think I solved it. I had to manually disable the High Definition Audio Bus. I remember AMD software would turn it off but I guess when the windows update happened, it did something to the drivers and forced a generic HDMI audio driver to be installed. Switched the output slider to headphone...

    What laptops don't come preloaded with bloatware?

    The HP Spectre x360 is plain jane Windows 8.1 and nothing else. I know the windows store has a couple of laptops that are considered "premium" and have nothing but the operating system. Any HP also has a minimal reformat option which will format the OS partition with nothing but the OS and...

    Ok, FINALLY putting in my 295x2 and 290x...

    Have you tried plugging in one card at a time to see if it will post? Also, I know the power connections are very specific on the 295x2. I don't see your power supply listed on your specs either. Let us know and maybe we can help you out a little more.

    Motorola SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem $69.99 - Ebay (NewEgg)

    Cool. But I hear The SB6183 is the new model that supports 16x4 bonded channels. Cable companies are requiring this upgrade if you have the 100/200/300Mbs option in your area.

    How did this happen?

    Where is your pump inlet located in your loop? It seems like pressure from the pump if the inlet is right after your GPU's. Do you have a reservoir installed as well?

    Sapphire Warranty

    They go through based in Walnut, CA if you are in the US. I had to RMA a 290x last month due to a faulty displayport output but got it a replacement within a week. The communication was okay during the whole process. Not making excuses but there is some random flash flooding...

    Does your card down clock if display is >60Hz?

    My 290x and previous 6970 would always run the VRAM at full speed when I had the refresh rate at 144hz. Anything lower than that and it downclocked the VRAM to 150Hz when idle. I agree its annoying but I don't know if this is a hardware of software thing.

    Sound Blaster ZxR for $165. NewEgg

    I originally got this at the suggested MSRP when it was only out for three months. Worth it to me since supposedly got a good set of cans. If you can find the ZX for a decent deal, I would bite on that aswell but some say the Burr-Brown DAC and TI amp are worth the upgrade to the next up. Right...

    Sound Blaster ZxR for $165. NewEgg

    The ZxR has optical in/out but no coaxial. Your speakers would be fine though since you have both. Creative includes an optical cable in the box if you get the non-oem.

    One fan doesn't spin - MSI Gaming R9 280X

    I'd check if they would cross ship you one. But they would need to put a hold on a card till they get your defective one back.
