    what's the best monitor for gaming and productivity?

    ^beat me to it, I would recommend towards like a 31.5/32" 4k IPS, but you will only find 60hz panels right now since high refresh panels are $2k+ Currently I use a Acer XF270HU for my work/play, color accuracy is great once I calibrated with my Spyder Pro 5. But I'm looking to move to 4k from 1440p (144hz) since I want 10bit color plus a higher coverage of AdobeRGB (have 100% sRGB and 85% AdobeRGB currently)
  2. On the road to Nantucket for the summer, can't wait to start some real workflow with the new setup. I'll be busy wandering the island armed with my MagicLantern modded 50D.  

    Also got a good run in when I was trying to leave Atlanta, my Husky, Sky, got loose and went on a little adventure to turn the stress level up for us.

    1080p 240hz or 144hz

    Go 240hz if you're sticking with 1080p

    1080p 120hz or 1440p 120hz monitor?

    I would go with a 1440p personally, and don't worry about the FreeSync - I have a XF270HU which is a 144hz 1440p w/ FreeSync but I'm running a 1080Ti (I didnt feel like shelling out for GSync). I'm actually thinking of moving up to 4k, but need to find a panel that's good for work (photo & video editing and play)

    Oh ok, didn't realize the lines coming out were under the ground-line

    Guessing you insulated the exposed outdoor lines going from the house to the ground?

    1080 Ti watercooling temps?

    You're temps are way too high for that card, for it being water-cooled. Right now I Have my 1080Ti in my media rig (had to delay finishing Project Gray Scale) which has a OC'd 5930k at 4.7 1.285vCore and my Ti is cruising at 2036/5635. The loop has dual D5's, set at 2, and a single EX360 rad from XSPC which the highest temps it sees in games is 40c and even running F@H only peaks at 42c. I have to go with some of what others have said in that there's a huge restriction in your loop causing these high temps, and I would start with checking your pump's flow rate since there's a possibility it's failing or just needs a second pump to help. I have moved to dual pumps myself as a redundancy measure.

    SA caps have to be my favorite, have a set of Miami Night SA's on my iKBC Poker II Type-C but also have a spot for DSA's which a set of Dolch are on my QuickFire TK (both boards sport MX-Browns) Also have another Quickfire TK w/ blues and a OCN Edition Ducky w/ MX-Black switches

    Need links to sites that sell Custom Cherry mx Key caps

    Pimpmykeyboard.com Tai-hao.com Wasdkeyboards.com https://kbdfans.myshopify.com Also check Amazon, that's where I got my last two sets (Miami Nights SA set and Gray Dolch DSA set)

    Looking for good earbuds under £80

    I would say take a peek on MassDrop, they have alot of good IEM's at decent prices especially considering the exchange rate between USD and GBP
  11. Equifax needs a restructuring after all of this, if it hasn't happened already, which I'm sure it has or at least started. This was a big screw-up on their part.

    ZTE Axon 7 Giveaway

    not sure why they went with the Quad Core, but would love to try one out. Especially since I'm tired of the craptastic mistake of purchase I made with the iPhone 6+. This ohone appears to be headed in the right direction for an Android based phone and I wouldn't be ashamed of using one in any of the color options given. Also the replacement/repair program is a great offering from the company as yes accidents do happen over a period of time i.e. me dropping my iPhone 6+ 1.5ft while trying to wrestle with my son (at the time he was just over 1yr old) to keep his shoes on in the waiting room lol. (the screen shattered on the iPhone in an OtterBox from a 1.5 ft fall and OtterBox will not cover it and I have to pay out $175 to T-Mobile , who I've been a loyal customer of for 5 years which I pay my monthly fee for premium handset coverage- so why do I have to pay a deductible when they've received more than enough from me). I'm really wanting to get away from my first and last iPhone - would prefer to go back to a Windows phone but still carry love for Android as well.
