    Re: Is there anybody still there?

    Do I count as an old Fogey?

    Not sure why forums have died. I was a big supporter of MPC forum, then they closed. Said moderating was too much time. Tried PCWorld, and they went strictly FB (no...

    Re: Need mother board help!!

    looks like you diagnosed correctly, the RAM slots 3 & 4 seems to be faulty.

    Replacing mobo would be the next step.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Please advise and comment on new PC build.

    Overall, solid build - be sure to post pics once you're finished.

    Why 32GB of RAM? I'm asking to make you think about it, not saying you shouldn't get that much. For most people, 16GB should be...

    Ok. I managed to find a tiny, light blue dash that appears to be the button:

    Sorry for the late response, I just saw your post. Actually, for a first pass this is really good and if I'm correct in my thinking, you could really make this a powerful tool - more powerful than...

    Re: realistic expectations, life span of a cpu.

    There's two questions I see:

    How long do we expect the CPU system (mobo, CPU) to last, either before it craps out or we feel the need to upgrade?
    Should I buy a backup mobo just in case my...

    Re: When should you replace a power supply?

    I've had several PSUs die, usually they start failing intermittently - random restarts, have to push power button a few times. Oftentimes, it "looks" like the mobo has failed because case fans will...
  9. Something missing has re-appeared - it must be the blue men. Mean anything to you?

    Re: i5-2500K crashes on ordinary use

    I was thinking the same thing - clean out the computer real well, including the fans, CPU coolers, and reapplying the thermal paste.

    Hope this helps.

    What happened to CPUboss.com and GPUboss.com

    So I went to CPUboss.com to compare some CPUs only to find that the recent CPUs aren't listed (i7-8700K) or listed as rumored (R5 1600X). GPUboss was the same way.

    Anyone know what happened to...

    Re: Looking to upgrade

    Right now, GPUs, especially AMD, are way overpriced for their performance.

    If you want 8GB of VRAM, the 570 is your starting point, which is a decent card for 1920x1080 but probably lacks the...

    Re: New Build, What Size PSU

    While more certainly doesn't hurt, I think the days of 1000W PSU (even 850W) are numbered. CPUs are not as power hungry, and neither are GPUs. On top of that, multi-GPU setups are less and less...

    Re: CPU upgrading

    I like this question.

    When I initially got back into building computers (circa 2010), I had intended to build a new computer every 2 years. My first build back was an i7-870k which was a great...

    I think the ROG_EXT connector in the middle-bottom of the board is part USB header so you should be able to use that as you AIO cooler connector.

    I believe the NZXT internal hub will work if the...

  19. Re: Beginning builder's 2nd build - Advice, suggestions please

    Hi, Skittzo!

    Overall, it's a nice build.

    Like I mentioned to delatroy, I'm not sure what the fascination is with getting high timed RAM when the mobo requires OC'ing to get the benefit. Not...

    Intel: from E to X, what gives?

    For the longest time, Intel used the "E" suffix to indicate the higher-end CPUs. More recently, they were used to identify the LGA 2011 socket CPUs (e.g., Haswell-E, Broadwell-E).

    But with the...
  24. Re: why not do a sound quality test for a video card ?

    Ok, I did misunderstand the question - I thought you were referring to noise level, not sound quality. Not sure why I did...you say sound quality...I guess the graphs got me thinking otherwise.

  25. Re: why not do a sound quality test for a video card ?

    At first I didn't understand your question, but now that I thought about it, that's actually a really good idea.

    My only caveats is that each GPU is different so YMMV.
