  1. I just ordered the M5A97 AM3+ motherboard, but also purchased it with the h100i and Obsidian 450d. The obsidian comes with 3 fans, and the h100i comes with 2, totaling to 5 fans. The issue is, my motherboard only supports 4 Will I be able to use something like this on my two 140mm intakes or h100i fans?
  2. Hey, I know I know. There are maybe 300+ topics like this on the LTT forum. BUT, new tech gets released all the time, and I'm building a PC for a friend (pricing and ordering everything too). My question is, what is the most up-to-date gaming PC that fits into my $1400 budget P.S. Please no 960s lol
  3. Oh dayum thats a nice price considering it is pre-owned. Anyways, it gives you more options to eventually add another 970 if you feel like it.
  4. 1) Yes, a 970 is definitely worth the extra cash in regards to its performance 2) A 860w platinum PSU isnt worth the money, and the money saved from that can be used towards the 970 mentioned above. I suggest maybe this: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-power-supply-rs650amaag1 , or if fully-modular is what your after, then maybe: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cp9020072

  6. Wow even after probably a hundred LTT videos advertising them, I still forgot...
  7. Hey, I was just watching Luke's new vid, and the build look really nice, partially thanks to the AIO. I've seen it a few times in other builds, but never stumbled upon it on Newegg, Amazon, etc,.. What is the name of this?
  8. Wouldn't be a very difficult task I assume?
  9. I actually saw a video with linus using a fan to dry his waterlogged laptop for 24 hours, and it functioned. I don't know if 5 hours will do the trick, and certainly dont know if rice will work on an iPhone, due to its inability to open. Worth a shot though, good lück
  10. I used white rice with my iPod shuffle after jumping into the pool with it (I was 7y/o) Make sure the rice is UNCOOKED lol
  11. Hey, Recently I've been spending hours on PCPartPicker, fiddling about with different configurations. After a while, I started getting bored because all I could see was the components, but not what each individual build would look like. The resulting idea, very simple, was to create a program to pick motherboard, GPU, cooler, etc,... and pull the .jpg image of each component from a database. After each component is picked (and the corresponding image appears), each .jpg would appear at a specific place on the visual display, according to the case picked. This service would provide a good, maybe rough, idea of how each build would look before spending anything. Possibly PCPartPicker could use their database of components to make this possible on a larger scale? Is something like this possible? And on a smaller scale-- with maybe 200 motherboards to choose from, 200 GPUs, and say 100 PSUs-- I would think it would be quite straightforward to code with the right background and experience... Select a mobo from a dropdown list, a picture appears: not really rocket science. Although this is a cool concept, I don't know if it would really be worth the effort of not only coding it, but also compiling a database with specific photos of hundreds of parts. Would anyone else like to see something like this, or is it only me? lol Thanks, Kermit
  12. Maximus VII has a really cool look Of course, whatever color scheme or overclocking potential you want will result in different boards. What does the rest of your build look like?
  13. thank you for the kind words I fixed it
  14. That case isn't the only thing "Magnum" right now
  15. Thanks, the video only went on for 23", so it only took up about 1.8GBs.
  16. This PC isn't for me, and I have no clue what my friend will want down the road, so to save time and money I'll use the 760w platinum in case he adds another 970
  17. Quick answers please, I need this info fast! thanks How many MBs or GBs will 30 mins of iPhone 6 video take up? It will be a continuous video for half an hour, and I have 5.6 GBs free (more than enough), but I was wondering how much space I will be allocating to it.
  18. Do you have something against PC porn?
  19. PayPal service is a nightmare lmao, but thats a whole new topic

  22. Any prep work involved or can I just take the rings and spray
