  1. First Custom Water Cooling Loop

    I will sadly not be doing my gpu as I have an xfx rx 480 that does not have a specific block for it only weird universal ones that I do not want to use.
  2. First Custom Water Cooling Loop

    I most likely will just wanted to see if anyone owned one and what they thought of it.
  3. Tab s2 any good?

    I used to sell the tab s2 along with a bunch of other tablets and what not at Best Buy and I would say if you want a cell phone to compare it to it is probably a galaxy S7. Not bad for the price but I am guessing that there are newer options that are potentially nay likely better. The hardware in it should be fine but Samsung is notoriously bad at keeping past devices up to date with software.
  4. First Custom Water Cooling Loop

    So I have been wanting to get into water cooling for a while now but never really had the money for it. I currently have a corsair H60 cooling my 6850K but I have always wanted more than an AIO. So after looking at what custom loops cost I think I will be going with a kit to save some money. The kit I want to get is the EK fluid gaming A240 that Linus reviewed a while ago. It's not super expensive and will be relatively easy to add to later so long as I get aluminum parts. I am only doing the cpu for now as there is not a good block for my gpu other than some weird universal ones I would rather not use. I know that reviewers like Linus, Jayztwocents, and bitwit Kyle have given this kit good reviews, but I am wondering if anyone here has one that they have had in use for a long time and what they think about it. Also is there anything I should watch out for other than that it is all aluminum so don't mix metals.
  5. Choosing parts for pc build (1st time builder)

    I keep the games I play the most as well as any other software that I use daily like discord and some benchmarking software. I don't really have a ton of work related stuff on my desktop, it mostly stays on my laptop.
  6. Choosing parts for pc build (1st time builder)

    Seems great the only thing that I would recommend though is to add an ssd to boot off of. Doesn't have to be huge, like a 120gb or 240gb just for your os and a few programs, it really does make a big difference.
  7. Intel delays 10nm chips (again)

    To everyone saying that I reposted could you maybe chill I don't go on here much and posted this article as soon as I saw it. I usually don't go through news stuff much as half that gets recommended to me is garbage.
  8. Cursed parts? Help please

    I have seen this before once and they did two things and I am not sure which was the solution, one was to boot with only one stick of ram in and then later on reboot but with both (you could try a program like memtest to see if it is the ram) They also ended up reinstalling windows from scratch which ended up leading to some other problems. I would try the ram first as that is a lot easier to do especially with memtest.
  9. New PC Temps

    I use an application called speccy and it works great for measuring the temps for the cpu, motherboard, gpu, even drives that have temperature probes. would highly recommend.
  10. Pc not working

    There is so many things that could be the problem with the little information. what do you mean by powers up like the fans spin, what turns on what doesn't? It could be a dead gpu if you have one so maybe try without that, could be a motherboard issue which would make sense why the keyboard doesn't turn on. That's the best I got until we get more details.
  11. Intel delays 10nm chips (again)

    As can be seen in this and many other articles intel is delaying 10nm chips for like the 4th time at least. Cannon lake is just gonna have to wait until 2019 or later. This reminds me all to much of the No Man's Sky release date that got pushed back many times for a few years. https://anandtech.com/show/12693/intel-delays-mass-production-of-10-nm-cpus-to-2019
  12. How do ppl used up 8gb vram

    If you have multiple screens it uses a lot more, plus there is some future proofing I think they try to have. Kinda like how you will never use 16gb of ram while gaming but you never want to run out
  13. New hard drives very excited

    They came in today, got them installed and in a RAID 1 and they are great
  14. New hard drives very excited

    Ok but if I told you I had a raid array that I used as my main storage and I was backing it up to external hard drives you would agree that my data has been backed up so why would that not apply in reverse, better yet lets just say that is what I am doing so everyone can be happy.
  15. New hard drives very excited

    Please explain how having data on two very separate locations, 1. an external hard drive, and 2. the raid array, is not a backup. I'm not saying that one of the drives in the array is a backing up the other.
