    I guess only GPU engineers can answer that question. The rest of us can only guess from our experiences. I've had one Asus GTX 670 die on me after a year or so. The second one (also the exact same card) lasted for years after that and it also...

    I know there are ITX cases where you can put a 360 CPU AIO and another 240 radiator (I'd probably get one of those high-end AIO 240 GPUs) and a few fans. I've seen some people do custom watercooling (hardline!) in ITX and it's just amazing they...

    I live in Sweden, the heat is not a problem even during the summer. The setup with its 15 fans (13 case and 2 gpu) is very silent. I'd rather have many silent fans than few loud ones. And the looks fit well in the theme of my apartment. I will...

    I'm more about aesthetics nowadays than top performance. It's more fun to build something special than just throw parts together and call it a day. I have built basically everything there is except LN2 cooling system. From ITX to tower ATX to...

    I have a PS5 if I want to play more games. This 3060 is supposed to be a temporary solution. It plays WoW, Lost Ark, Guild Wars 2 just fine at 4k which I found to be very surprising. I did not expect this much from it. The problem is I need a...

    Nebell replied to the thread RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation.
    I just bought a 3060 because I couldn't live with integrated GPU. I wanted to play some MMORPGs like WoW and edit videos. Found one for €400 which is more expensive than usual, but I wanted a white card for my all white build. Well, color me...

    Nebell replied to the thread Gaming in your 40s.
    I just turned 38 and yeah, not quite there yet, but curious enough to read, (almost) (b)old enough to comment. Reading the posts got me a bit worried, although when I read between the lines, the hidden message is "don't get kids". Fortunately I...

    Its possible that, in the bios, rather than having the individual cores set, you have it set per amount of cores. So, 1 core is 5.3, but all cores is 5.1. That's normal turbo behavior anyway. Intel's turbo their highest on 1 or 2 threads. But...

    It's on now, but turning it off didn't do anything. I think there must be some wierd bug with the bios. If I change core 0 from 5.3ghz to 5.1ghz and then back to 5.3ghz, it still stays at 5.1ghz in Windows and doesn't want to go above. Even...

    So I'm trying to get the best out of my 12600k because reasons :) I'm sure you understand. I am able to run it (GHz, per p-core) 5.3, 5.1, 5.1, 5.1, 5.1, 5.1 and e-cores at 4.1GHz. V-core at 1.29v. I have 2 problems with the above. Problem 1...

    Tell me again how Nvidia/AMD will self-sabotage selling their cards at twice the MSRP. Next-gen is going to be paper launch for the whole 2022.

    Bumping my own thread. I actually decided to build a new computer, some 8 months after I created this thread. The main reason is that I got tired of my old PC and wanted something new. I'm sure you know the feeling. And also new LGA1700...

    So according to rather accurate leaks, 4070 is on par with 3090. That will be interesting. About €700 for a €2000+ card. Excited to see if there will be any GeForce info on Computex tomorrow (there probably will). I can see Nvidia doing this, but...

    Nebell replied to the thread Pimax mystery box.
    Lol they're selling mystery boxes with random shit in. Well at least it's not selling for more than what a new headset costs. But on another side it's refurbished, so.... They're also doing the same for accessories.

    So I'm getting rid of my integrated sound card as I'm unhappy with Creative Command app that is very buggy for me (currently using SoundBlasterX AE-5 Plus). I've been looking at: Creative G6 (€150) (I'm a bit wary of their drivers as they have...

    Nebell replied to the thread Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition.
    Hmmmm, I think the smartest thing to do would be to wait. In a month or two people are going to start panic selling their cards, so regardless if you're after the current or next gen, you should just hoooooold for a little more. I sold my 3080...

    Nebell replied to the thread 6950xt releasing next week.
    Hmmm it costs €1600 in Sweden, while 6900XT costs €1250 or so (found a good deal). Meanwhile 3080Ti is €1400. 3090 is still €2000+. It's the second fastest card at 4k, faster than 3090 Ti at 1080p/1440p, but those resolutions I care nothing...

    I've been pondering a lot now that I've sold my old pc with i9-9900k. I bought the first gen Galaxy laptop which has i7-11965g which is the lower limit I would use now that I've tested it. I have to run the laptop in silent mode or else it's too...
  • Nebell
    Oh man those new low power CPUs are definitely worth it. I game at 4k where CPU is less of an issue and do Lightroom photo editing as well as some light video editing, so I think even as low as i7-1260p would be good enough as I'm happy with what...
  • Nebell
    I'm thinking mainly Core i7-1260P as I want an ultrabook + GPU enclosure when the next gen cards hit the market. That would put me into a better position for 4k gaming than what I have now (3080). 9900k is overclocked to 4.7ghz all core. I can't...
