    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for Nvidia, AMD, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX. I've also got a NZXT Manta in the basement. They've only got about 2.2slot clearance for the GPU. I got the GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS PRO AX ATX Intel Motherboard as a combo with the 3080ti. I think I'd prefer to go w/ AMD when I do complete a build. Maybe I can find...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for Nvidia, AMD, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Finally got picked for a Newegg Shuffle. 3080Ti and Gigabyte Z590 board are on the way. This lines up great with Costco's sale on the 48" C1 for $1099 that starts on 10/27. This card won't fit in my ITX case. I have to decide weather I'll start a full rebuild now or start by just moving...

    MSI GeForce RTX 2060 GAMING Z Video Card Review @ [H]

    "However, you cannot do that. At $349.99-$389.99 the RTX 2060 is price comparable with GeForce GTX 1070 video cards" This is a pile of crap. The GTX 1070 is 31 months old. The newer cards have a pattern of equaling/outperforming the previous gen model a tier higher while costing a tier lower...

    NVIDIA NDA & HardOCP - POLL

    Kyle You have access to the numbers. You can determine what is the best choice for HardOCP. Please take into consideration Nvidia's recent attempts with GPP. Why did they back down from GPP? This is the same company that was trying to lock everyone in the GPP. Is this a company that you...

    Hunt: Showdown (Crytek multiplayer survival shooter)

    I have changed my play style up a little and have been having a lot more success. While I hope they fix some of the gameplay issues from my last post, I am working around them for now. I now refuse to try and kill the boss's unless I'm sure everyone is dead. I'll just collect my clues and...

    Hunt: Showdown (Crytek multiplayer survival shooter)

    Two of my friends and I picked up this game and have been trying to play. We've been having a hard time though. There are frequent server issues, but when things are working ok, performance seems to be acceptable. The main problems we are having is that the game starts players too close...

    Too many options. What should I use to cool my 7700k

    I'm building a new gaming box and have everything figured out except for the cooler. I can't decide, there are too many options. I will be overclocking the 7700k as high as it will run at a reasonable voltage. I'm building in a Phanteks Enthoo-Evolv ITX case which has tons of room for large...

    Asus Strix Z270i mobo, what is this?

    That metal shroud is a heatsink for the m.2 drive that mounts below it. It has a thermal pad attached to it. The thin film you see is covering the sticky part of the pad. If you install a m.2 drive there you would remove that sticky cover and attach the thermal pad/metal shroud to the top of...

    [H] Ryzen benchmark question/suggestions

    I have been holding off on my new build to see how well Ryzen compares with Intel so that I can make the correct decision as I imagine many others are. I am building exclusively for gaming and will be replacing my i5 2500k with a 7600k/7700k or a Ryzen CPU. What I want to see is benchmarks for...

    Verizon unlimited plan (from way back)

    I just gave up my Verizon unlimited plan yesterday. I don't use much data only 2-3gb month. The offer they had for the S7 edge for $360 ($15 mo. x24) was available weather I kept unlimited or not. I just gave it up in order to offset the cost of the phone. I was at a corporate Verizon store...

    PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 470 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Now that the price has been put back to the MSRP of $199 is the score going to be changed back to Silver? I find it to be odd that the scores would be tied to a retailers temporary sale price instead of a MSRP.
