    When should you replace a power supply?

    I've had a Seasonic X650 since 2010 and it's been an absolute rockstar. I've had absolutely no issues with it up to this point in 2018, but am wondering if I'm running any risks by keeping an aging...
  2. Poll: Re: GTX 680: Who's got one/Getting one? real world results

    Well, the way I play it, is buy a really nice card that will last 2-3 years of solid high end gaming. Granted, the Radeon HD 7000 series is high priced, and might break that rule a bit, but...
  3. Poll: Re: GTX 680: Who's got one/Getting one? real world results

    Weird,

    This guy says quite differently, and he reviews the shit out of everything and doesn't cater to sponsors. Go to 26:30 minutes if you don't want to watch it all. Results don't lie. Also...
  4. Poll: Re: GTX 680: Who's got one/Getting one? real world results

    I got the 7950 Sapphire OC and have no regrets. The thing is crazy quiet, and a huge overclocker. The 680 and 7900 series are neck and neck this generation, depending on the applications / games...

    Re: OK, monitor time again

    I'd be weary of PVA panels, since it's generally older tech (if I'm correct). It DOES look good, and has the color depth and viewing angles of IPS. However, the refresh rates plague it compared to...

    Re: OK, monitor time again

    It's a little more, but the Dell U2412M monitor. IPS 24" screen with 1920x1200. I have a couple U2410's and love em. BTW, the 2412 is LED backlit, which is a huge plus.

    Re: What is the BEST SATA3 SSD

    I would totally rock the Intel 520 series. I currently have the X-25 160GB and it's been phenomenal the last 2 years and going. IMO they are some of the best built drives on the market with the...
  8. Re: HIS Radeon HD 6770 - Can I extend 3 screens?

    Not sure which one you'd want, but I believe this is what I was referring to.

    Re: Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    Aw but that seems counter-productive, considering the fans that come on it are supposed to be SUPER quiet, which was the whole point, and they're Noctua brand.

    Re: Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    So if my board only has the 4-prong connector, I'll have issues with the U12?

    Re: Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    When I say blocks, I'm meaning that I can't even access the ram. I have to remove the heatsink just to get to it. The D-14 will absolutely fit my case though. And if ram height is an issue, just...

    Re: Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    I'm not worried about clearance issues. It's just the D-14 is HUGE. I already have a friend with my same case using one, and it works fine. I'm worried about liquid cooling solutions, considering...
  13. Re: HIS Radeon HD 6770 - Can I extend 3 screens?

    One monitor MUST be plugged in by Display Port. As long as it has one, even if your monitors don't support it, there is a $30 adapter that converts the display port to HDMI (or DVI, can't remember),...

    Re: Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    Hmmm, that's an interesting heatsink. It certainly looks cool, and isn't a horrendous huge atrocity. It's showing it can be quieter than the D-14, but at what cooling rate?...especially if you're...

    Re: Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    I understand that. I thought the U12 would be a good one because it's actually quieter than the D-14, and still cools fairly well (not as well as the D-14 though). As long as I can hit good...

    Good Silent CPU Heatsinks (to grow into)

    I'm currently using a CoolerMaster V8 on my Core i7 920, and it's been decent, but I know there are better heatsinks that cool better AND are quieter. Quietness is a HUGE factor, since I'm on an...
  18. Re: Question regarding two video card upgrades.

    In the $50-$75 range, I'd recommend either a Radeon HD 6570, or Nvidia Fermi GT 430. Probably your strongest bang for buck.

    Radeon HD 6970 or 7950?

    I'm really having a hard time with this decision (first world problems). I play Battlefield 3 and Starcraft 2 a lot (Desert Strike games), and am currently running a 5770. It's been a great card,...

    Keep in mind, I never said what you appear to be accusing me of. I'm very aware that "Droid" is a phone, and Android is a software platform. I still believe you're splitting hairs.
