  1. Galaxy S9 Plus

    That is the Samsung Exynos model, it doesn't have the CMDA hardware whereas the Snapdragon does. https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-S9-Unlocked-Smartphone/dp/B079JXY4TJ This is supported on Verizon, I'm currently using the same model as amazon on Verizon's network.
  2. 1080p@144 vs 1440p@60 paired with GTX1070

    I can do 1440P 60HZ ultra on my 980 Ti, handles current games fine. FC5, ROTTR, PUBG can do 1440P 60HZ ultra with no problems, even with the GPU at stock.
  3. Yeah I'm probably at the max for safe vcore 24/7 daily, needs all the GHZ.
  4. Bought a Q9650, flashed P5E Deluxe to Rampage Formula, used pencil mod to reduce vdroop.
  5. Well the Q6600 lacks SSE4...so now off to buy a 45nm Quad. Now it's time to either decide getting a Q9550 or Q9650.
  6. Got myself a X48 board, G3 750W, Cryorig H5 Ultimate for all of this E8500s are like 6 bucks so perhaps 4GHZ run on that
  7. Yeah I go ahead and buy a TX650M for my Q6600/780 build, then G3 750W goes on sale...buys that as well lol. Returning the TX650M, at least the G3 750W is more than capable of what I need along with fully modular.

      I'd have returned whichever is more expensive but you do you sir

  8. Massive EVGA B-stock Sale

    Wouldn't call it a sale, at least they got stock out compared to the past few months.
  9. PSU Tier List Updated

    I ended buying the TX650M for $45 new, I know you hate 650W PSUs but it's the same price as I was going to buy the TX550M for.
  10. The 1030, is this video true?

    I just said my reason was 4K HTPC card, the 1030 can do it as it has a HDMI 2.0 port.
  11. The 1030, is this video true?

    That's not the point...a 750 Ti can't do 4K 60HZ from it's HDMI port.
  12. What is wrong with me...I just bought another 780... 

  13. The 1030, is this video true?

    It is the cheapest GPU with HDMI 2.0, it's still viable as a 4K HTPC card.
  14. PSU Tier List Updated

    Think I might just wait out on a sale with some 550W-650W gold PSU(Seasonic G, Focus/Plus, G2/G3, TX), unless I can get that deal with the G3 750W for $80 again.
  15. PSU Tier List Updated

    So just when I was going to buy the TX550M, went OOS rip. I was thinking about this PSU instead, it's tier 2 on the list. Cheaper than the TX550M after rebate... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074ZKXM72/?tag=extension-kb-20&th=1
