  1. WOO cant wait to get this build started!
  2. Thanks for the reply! I'm doing my in store pickup from micro center right now, I'm grabbing that mobo and a pair of ripjaws and the i9! Will my bracket for my AIO WC thats a 1150 work on the 1151 i wonder
  3. I am coming to a hard decision for my build. I will be purchasing this within the next week and am getting cold feet! For years I've steadily turned here for advice and input from enthusiasts I've come to trust. As my family has grown, it gave me less time to have fun, however now as my children are getting older (and more helpful LOL) I am getting a little more time back into my setup I have just completed a large amount of upgrades, Desk, Keyboard & Mouse, Storage, Audio & Display setup... Now it's time to do the big boys CPU - MOBO - RAM It's coming to a point where I almost feel it's not going to be much difference due to the level of parts and that's making me second guess myself. Now Right before you see the hardware, I'll put in what my system is used for, as it's been so long I'm sure nobody nowadays knows what my usage style is Always On 24-7 Gotta be able to at least have OC capability duh! (that's what removed the ASUS boards due to poor VRM setup) Connects to Gigabit network, I already Have a PCI wireless card (AC Used as Plex Media Server that has multiple simultaneous connections sometimes Used as my daily core gaming machine. Display is a 4k 120hz TV Via HDMI DVD video encoding, would like to be able to do high speed and quality multiple pass encodes I don't go extra on memory OC beyond what's needed for the CPU The Permanent parts that aren't changing this build is going into: Case - Thermaltake CA-1H1-00F1WN-00 Tower 900 PSU - CORSAIR RMx Series, RM1000x Windows Drive - Samsung 970 PRO 512GB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD Undecided - Need Opinions! Mobo - MSI MEG ACE Z390 GIGABYTE AORUS master ASrock Taichi Ultimate Cpu - i9 - 9900k OR i7 8/9700k RAM - I want at least 32gb of RAM, Not too picky, any suggestions? My 1080 Ti Still makes me happy
  4. still working on it, but I am loving this card!\ hmm I cant seem to use some of the functions here to add my link, it just freezes. :\
  5. I just bought this card, this review being the final reason. I believe in you ccokeman lol
  6. Well if all you do is low-speed in city driving, you can always sell the motorcycle and get a moped which seems much more suited to what you use it for. Road rash cares not what you wear!
  7. Knight_72 - you are incorrect about the amount needed for that game. "minimum requirements" for that game is 4GB. walterg74 - SSD's are amazing compared to HDD's especially nowadays as they have had much time to develop. - don't worry about vibration/bangs/drops. you can still murda them, but nowhere as easily as a tradional HDD - they don't need to be defragged, its seek time is astronomical compared to a HDD - they consume less power to operate - access times, load times for ALL applications , not just windows (BTW Fight Game, not entirely true. for people who have scheduled anti-virus sweeps, Auto-Matic Updates and such can make a decrease in game performance , especially if you are just pushing the minimum to run the game) Sinze you are gaming @ 1920x1080 I would first just upgrade my videocard, see how much of an impact that makes, and if you still want to go further, i'm on the same ship as Bosco, Next stop RAM SSD's are the current future of HDD's Only downside is the Price2Size Ratio, which is MUCH less than it has been, but still much more expensive than traditional drives.
  8. cchalogamer - Man you filled me with worries now, considering I leave my pc on usually 24-7 365. hornycow - im surprised they are working with him without a fight. im sure if it was anything but an already completely closed loop they would try to pawn it off somewhere else spikesoprano - that's how mass producing parts goes. original design is good, after years of producing the "lets cut money and make the same item" idea usualy starts popping up, pooping on it for everyone
  9. LOL Waco, howcome? Its durability is amazing. plus for Pandora n email simple stuff it gets the job done! im just not fancy with my phones anymore I guess lol
  10. I have a droid razr M and it seems to be able to do everything you said you wanted, are you just sick of having the phone for so long? I do know when I had been using cyanogen, the kernel played a major part of the performance. I would check out a S4 active. a nice little durable phone, other than that I don't recommend any Samsung after working on them. the lumia series are good windows phones, most have overkill on the camera and good quality screens. if you don't mind the razr series, the XT1080 isn't a bad choice.
  11. I have used torn up tools for years soldering and never had any issues. cheap flux paste on the other hand...
  12. ^ +1 Found my mother in law outside, otherwise nothing fancy
  13. I think it looks good, screw what he says lol
  14. Easy tablet to repair for all you do-it-yourselfers! Hope you sell it!
  15. you can always just flip your case lol
  16. The monitor is not the issue. Only Thing the monitor would be doing that over is trying to run a resolution unsupported by it
  17. OP, you have to realize. that with the information you have been given, even with my post. You have all the information needed to make a conclusive decision if all of our help leads to NOTHING being helpful, you have to realize the baseline is Your ambient temp is too high for your config. Underclock is your only option IMO
  18. I am a happy owner of a HX850. Nobody seemed to give it any love! Solid PSU. Put to rest my Antec TruPower Quattro 850.
  19. It didn't seem like non-sense to me. not everyone has amazing writing ability, or the ability to properly put thoughts into text. No reason to be rude to him. - With the GPU, have you tried taking off its shell? (the plastic housing) You can also remove the GPU heatsink and re-do the thermal paste. I have always had hot running Nvidia cards and have had to clean them on the regular to keeps temperatures adequate. - You might want to consider moving the setup to a cooler location. By an air conditioner and such. Area's with low air movement wont disperse heat as easily. - Go into your bios and Disable SMART fan tech. Run your fans all @ 100% (I do this even if its unnecessary for some reason) - You can also try to underclock a videocard that is overheating. depending on the card it may be easy to adjust the voltage (I have had to do that when I had no A/C a couple times) - If ambient air temps are constantly a problem, a water cooling solution may provide better results IF you can manage the proper size of radiator & air flow. - Make sure on cleaning you have not accidently un-seated any mounted cooling items. hope something can be of some help
  20. My thoughts on Tablets. I have owned/used/fixed many of these little guys. this is not a direct point to any of them, just the highlights or cons I have personally encountered. erhmagawd, also you have to remember used devices! especially if you are on a budget. ipad 1 - not bad, old iOS, no camera. still usable by todays lower quality device standards ipad 2 - perfect for mid-range , first time tablet. very smooth even for todays standards ipad 3/4 - nice and fast, look is played out from being nearly identical to ipad 2's. good response & battery life, poor quality glass ipad mini - lightweight, smaller screen w/better quality LCD, fast to todays standards, sensitive home button area glass, stronger metal than ipad 2/3/4 ipad air - not as light as I thought, full weight of the battery in my hands, and there isn't much else to an ipad besides that hardware wise - same speed as ipad 4 kindle fire - good weight, soft rubber back feel. most have charge ports which will break even with proper care kindle fire HD - what kindle fire should of been. nice if you understand how to use amazon cloud, rich LCD & feels like a book in a odd way asus transformer - disappointed. removable keyboard has fragile connectors. battery is not very good, overall speed feels less than ipad 2 on fresh install asus vivotab - impressed. windows based (plus for me). better keyboard/dock and nicer screen. feels sturdier than the transformer and is much faster. galaxy tab 7in - cheap plastic feeling, was not impressed by much. feels like a tablet of a pumped up s2 galaxy tab 2 - ironically I don't feel much of a difference. it may be how the customers had them setup but man it was nearly identical experience to me galaxy tab 3 7in - much faster, still feels cheap when holding overall. nicer screen but feels sluggish while using many apps, most like because theres a lot of bloat-ware pre-installed acer iconia a700 10.1 - cheap plastic feel, many hardware issues. poor battery life. very disappointed in overall performance nexus 7 - okay. had an outdated version of android on it for some reason, I don't think everything was on it right LOL. screen looked okay and it handled OK. it is most likely the most average of tablets to me I have also used many of the $100 tablets like dr.bowtie describes. I don't know if I am spoiled by using fast tech, but some of them are just a pain. bogged down versions of android coupled by outdated cpu's. a lot have much lower quality digitizers resulting in poor touch performance. some even have such lower quality lcd's you can see a hint of blue in them You get what you pay for, and for a new quality product expect to pay around $200(us) starting.
  21. Keys from MSDN sources will all eventually get blacklisted.
  22. I guess the real question should of been. "would you still purchase the case you want the most, if it was only in your least favorite color" then the truth will come out about the people who don't care what color. easy to think lightly about something you don't need
  23. -cchalogamer I remember X2's, had a couple, I was at the time excited to get a AMD-FX cpu.. Once I got into overclocking, the limitations of AMD was more than enough to discourage me. Didn't help every single damn benchmark program I would use, had Intel's stomping on AMD's on performance left and right. (Unless you count some of the memory tests, IDK why but they had great results for some AMD rigs) It was amazing when I was younger, I Had no money to put into my computers, so AMD solutions were much easier to attain. Once I had to start shelling out my hard earned cash, I was never going to put money into something I could push.. at least a little bit. Didn't take much for me to see what people were already doing to P4's with sweet cooling systems, the possibility of getting a monster OC became #1 on my list. Same reason I was so disappointed by the 4770k I purchased.
  24. Ever since my first Intel I retired my AMD's and never looked back. get a video conversion program and run the exact file on an AMD system and then on an Intel system, nuff said.
  25. modding BIOS is something you shouldn't try if you need help. Too Risky for the actual benefits on a GPU
