    How long have you used your power supply?

    I currently have an XFX Black Edition 850w that I bought in February of 2011 to replace my BFG PSU that died just a few months after the company went under. Which meant they couldn't honor their lifetime warranty Anyhow, still using it 8.5yrs later. It originally powered a Q6600 OC'd to 3.5ghz...

    Athlon 64 x2 bottlenecking?

    I get the impression that the old CPU is a purposeful choice for a "retro" gaming system. But I mean, for D2 it's way more than what should be necessary. I played D2 on an iMac G3 back in the day.

    Athlon 64 x2 bottlenecking?

    Other people have already covered it, but I'll say roughly the same thing: If there's one thing I remember about the early 64-bit days, it's that XP 64-bit was a mess that almost never worked right. It seems like a waste, but go with XO 32-bit. With 2gb of system RAM and 1gb of VRAM, I don't...

    3900x with 360 Aio 81 degrees?

    I'll give a reapply a try tonight, see what that gets me. Lowering the voltage brought temps down a bit, but brought performance down too. EDIT: Gave it a go with the two line method. Saw no real difference. Guess I'll just live with my machine being a bit louder than I'd like and hope these...

    3900x with 360 Aio 81 degrees?

    I have a 3900x cooled with an Enermax LiqTech II 360 and when running the AIDA64 stress test for an hour I was right around 83c and all cores at 4ghz. For me, it's not the load temps that bother me. I can do a Cinebench R20 run and stay down near 70c. That's fine. I expect the fans to ramp up...

    Triple Monitor Mount for 34" + 2x27" PLP?

    Thanks for the help y'all! I got the stand and it's working great. Spun Ducky, you're right, there's a lot of fine adjustment involved in getting everything lined up. Not the easiest process but aside from that it's working as well as I could hope. For what it's worth, the clamp works just fine...

    Triple Monitor Mount for 34" + 2x27" PLP?

    So I currently have a 34" 21:9 display and I will soon be getting two 27" displays to go alongside it. Ideally, I'd like to have the 27" monitors in portrait mode (good for reading documents and such). What'd be perfect is if I could get them all on on monitor mount, clamped to my desk. Anyone...

    The Verge Ridiculed for "How We Built a $2000 Custom Gaming PC" Video

    Linus has tons of subs because Linus has been consistently putting out quality content for years. Science Studio is... Man, he's just not good. I used to be a subscriber, but his non-stop condescending attitude was bad enough to make me unsub. I have no idea how he gains subs while someone like...

    astronomical GPU prices?

    And like all the others except for the $2k+ one, it's out of stock.

    AMD confirms Power Issue for RX 480, blames memory bus, will patch

    Just curious: Has anyone actually done the testing required to back up that statement? We know what a 970 draws in its stick form, but it there anyone out there that has tested user OC'd cards to make sure they aren't overdrawing from the PCI-E slot? I've been reading reports that this is a lot...

    These Headphones' Designers Think We Are All Idiots

    Kind of exactly my point, though? Yeah, folks like us spend $130 on headphones, we want $130 worth of sound quality out of them. Because they're headphones and they're supposed to sound good and very little else matters. The Axent Wears aren't a $130 set of headphones, though. They're a $130...

    These Headphones' Designers Think We Are All Idiots

    Are we supposed to pretend that those eBay headphones don't look like dollar store knockoffs of the Axent Wears? I guess Nintendo needs to rethink it's pricing on the 3DS given that the Neo Double is on the market. Also, I find it interesting you criticize the mic on the Axent Wears, considering...
