    Just wondering if anyone else remembers, or is familiar with this reference?

    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.
  3. 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: Mac is running slow

    Can you provide any more insight as to what is occurring? For example:
    What exactly is happening and how do you notice that it's slow?
    Is this something that you can trigger, or is it...

    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...

    Re: Asus Maximus IX Code

    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...

    Re: SOLVED: INET E RESOURCE NOT FOUND error

    Wouldn't you know it but my other laptop suffered the same fate. Same circumstances - shortly after a Windows update.

    Solution worked again.
  11. 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...
  12. Re: Upgrading to the 8700k after 7 years. Advice on this build please. $2,000+

    Right now, there is no "best...

    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...
  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    Also, I'd hate to add...

    Re: How long will it go..

    Isn't it an amazing CPU!? It still competes fairly well against the Skylake and Kaby Lake CPUs, and if you OC it, I think it actually will edge them out in some of the benchmarks.

    Anyone up to playing ME:A multiplayer?
  21. Re: Vertical GPU orientation - the sky's the limit??

    Maybe someone can provide some insight, but doesn't the use of an additional cable add latency to the GPU?

    I could be wrong, or the difference may be negligible so it may not matter much.

    Agreed, it looks like a solid build. I like the case - it's simple but has just a bit of flair so it doesn't look dull.

    I don't attach the stickers, personally. Now, I'm curious what other people do about the stickers.

    Re: Intel CPU Roadmap

    Kaby Lake is probably still the go-to for gaming, especially since the Sky/Kaby Lake-X is a more expensive platform.

    Coffee Lake will introduce a new chipset (300 series) so it most likely won't...
