  1. So I installed and opened up the Epic games launcher today. Shortly after this I noticed my fans are ramping up. With a quick check I noticed that the Epic Games launcher, while open on the desktop, was ramping things up to 95-100% load. Not that this is a new thing. Apparently this has been going on sense Epic games launcher 2.90 So fun fact. Want a light stability tester? Install the epic games launcher and leave it open on the desktop. Works great.
  2. That is a lot of power in one box. Bet the experience is epic.... To say the least. Nice build Braegnok.
  3. It seems that the manufactures are all doing a cost cutting measure. One example is the MSI RX 5700xt was reviewed by another outlet and they showed how the thermal paste job was sub par and thermal pads used only covered 1/3 to 1/2 of the memory modules to interface with the heat spreader. Which they choked it up to being a Money saving measured as in not wanting to retool. I am not sure the accuracy, they also made it clear that it was speculation. I got a speculation for yah guys. If you want to compete in the market. Its gotta be able to OC. I could oc a freaking GTX 480 and that in 2 way SLI on air with the reference model cooler. And now this one wont OC because it cant handle the heat...... No excuses, That's just poor manufacturing. But if you are not going to OC or anything then you will be peachy. A friend of mine just got one of these by my suggestion based on the best BANG for buck. He is super stoked. But in the same right I would not be pleased at all.
  4. Thank you for the review IR_Cow. The content is much appreciated. Its a shame the stock cooler does note perform well. :-(
  5. Thanks you for the review IR_Cow. I enjoyed the content.
  6. started with no card. now we have functioning card. SUCCESS!!!!
  7. there is solder everywhere. Honestly I if the card still works then I would find out a way to power the fans externally until it can be replaced. Or if its under warranty please RMA it.
  8. Well with 115X and several others I guess this could present quite the issue. However for me I have only ran Processor coolers that either A have a special backplate you install once and then use another set of bolts to install with spring tension. Or I have simply enjoyed socket 2011 that has 4 tapped holes right on the Ziff and hold down assembly. no mobo bending, no BS, screw and go. After that I do not want to talk about amd and their plastic whatever its suppose to be.
  9. Hey Bishop. How is the new system coming along?? Been a while sense the last update.
  10. Well better late then never.... Wait it ain't here yet. Delt with this on Mechwarrior online. Phirana games then they turned around and forced the game I was playing, Mechwarrior living legends, to halt any further development. Been butthurt ever sense, However it is nice to see Mechwarrior continued.
  11. Honestly I wonder what board Vlados has this system fitted to? @RHKCommander959 Wasn't the 4770K the heavy hitter for DT back then? `
  12. Yeah, That is true... BUT, https://www.kitguru.net/components/cpu/damien-cox/intel-core-i9-9900k-overclocked-to-7-6ghz-on-all-cores/ Edit: I know its only an eight core but its still impressive.
  13. Cheapest option by far. I checked the prices on those Radio controlled lawn mowers. 3800 bare min. and I doubt that comes with the controller.
  14. Yeah that would be sweet but an LN2 bench does not quantify real world performance. That is an awesome suicide shot but I am still ever skeptical IF AMD actually is worth the hype this time. Hell I am still in the 32nm stone age here and happy with it to a degree. While AMD is considerably cheaper will it hold up to the test of time. And in 6 months after AMD does this release is intel gonna pull a hat trick and release their modern day lga775 q6600 or the lga1366 920 and bury AMD for another 5 years min? Just my 2 cents. not trying to bash.
  15. Gratz dude. I got really happy for you when I saw this. GAME ON BISHOP!!!!!!

    Budget Build

    looking at the current events what about the Ryzen 5 2000 series. Couple it with a compatable asrock or your favorite flavor of board and that should be good to go?
  17. 5.45 @ 1.77 volts for a 7nm processor. I have questions...... MANY questions.
  18. I am not upgrading from the 1600 but I have been looking at the price point of the new chips. Being as I eventually want to run the latest quicker storage I have been debating on waiting for intel to answer to AMD's new lineup or give AMD another go. BUT I WOULD WAIT FOR REVIEWS.
  19. Oh how I wish I still had money remaining from vacation. Would have bought it.
  20. I would have to place my Computer tower on the floor to make that monitor work on my desk. So aside the cost that isn't happening. DErPa
  21. Couldnt help it. I have had my Eye on this one for a while. LG 32" 4K UHD https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16824025172
  22. I want a new panel but I guarantee that is out of my range.
  23. To be fair Jim I am bouncing off your words here. If I misunderstood or misrepresented what you said I do apologize. Thanks for clarifying. Edit: fixed error.
