    Epic store Mega Sale

    Fuck epic. At least this is more respectful than purchasing exclusivity rights for the first 6 months of a titles launch.

    Woot: Herman Miller Aeron Chair $500

    https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/fud/d/santa-ana-steelcase-amia-chair-fully/6858920712.html Look at all these "stolen" chairs. What, did they rob a truck? Some better than others. They have hundreds of them so you'll always get one that looks good.

    Woot: Herman Miller Aeron Chair $500

    So are chairs from failed startups. Liquidation companies will buy the lot for cheap.

    Woot: Herman Miller Aeron Chair $500

    Got a used Steelcase Leap V1 off craigslist for $60 before. I too prefer it over the Aeron.

    8600K fine for gaming?

    I wish there was a 9600K with HT. Something other than the 9900K. Looking for 1080p 240Hz, so I guess that would translate over to 1440/120?

    8600K fine for gaming?

    Looking to get a new gaming box and with the Intel shortage the 8700k's are harder to find and cost more. Benchmarks show the 8600k matching the 8700k. My only worry is the lack of HT coming back to haunt me. I'm cool with a mild OC using air. LMK what you think. My other option would be a 2600X.

    Alienware - AW2518H 25" 1080p 244hz TN LED FHD GSync Monitor $349.99

    Sick deal but this deal seems to be on rotation every so often. Great monitor for "competitive" gaming. Not so great for anything else. Someone convince me to not jump on this. Looking for a competitive monitor. The xl2546 and xl2540 seem like the best alternatives. 1" smaller, no gsync but...

    USB 3.0 PCI Express Card Expansion card compatible with Ryzen?

    Looking for a card that will work on a Ryzen chipset. Most of the cards I'm seeing only work with an Intel chipset or not too well with Windows 10. Do any of you have a card working well with your Ryzen? https://www.amazon.com/Express-Expansion-Controller-Rosewill-RC-508/dp/B011LZY20G/

    Hot? Spectre 27" 144hz Curved Gaming Monitor Prime $239 2018 Model

    Not a decent resolution to look at. Considering most of us have tolerated it for years. 1440 is no comparison. I'd rather run 1440 at MED than 1080 in HIGH.

    Does Corsair LINK work on Ryzen?

    Yeah the latest bios is beta and makes my system unstable. Windows wont find the nic.

    Does Corsair LINK work on Ryzen?

    Yeah no options for me in either Corsair's or ASRock's RGB utilities.

    Does Corsair LINK work on Ryzen?

    I have a 2700X and Corsair LINK doesn't work for adjusting my Corsair Vengeance RGB memory. Googling looks like they keep mentioning that support for Ryzen will be coming in a soon to be released patch but I haven't heard of any conformation if this has ever worked on first gen Ryzens or not, as...

    Stock 2700X fails OCCT every time

    Core temp shows things like 185c for the high sometimes but I think that is a false reading. OCCT has other monitoring software under settings but whatever I select does not stick.

    Stock 2700X fails OCCT every time

    I have a stock 2700X that passes Prime95 with flying colors but it can't get past a couple minutes in OCCT because it looks like the temp spikes to crazy heights at times. Not sure if these spikes are accurate or not but I see the same peaks in core temp as well. Are these spikes normal for...
