    wd blue ssd 500gb or kingston uv480

    Go for the WD Blue. Kingston budget SSDs are well known for having sub-par performance, this one is no exception. Reviews for both below.

    Get a kit?

    I recently upgraded to a custom loop and went full EK with 360/280 rad. It ended up being cheaper going for the P360 kit and adding GPU block an extra rad and fittings on afterwards. The parts EK use in their kits are identical to their individual components and in fact the CPU block has better universal support as it has mounting hardware for Intel and AMD included which their individual blocks don't by default.

    Plugged in (Charger disconnected)

    Hey folks, I have a crappy old Linx 1010b tablet that always shows as being plugged in, even when the charger is disconnected. Kind of annoying as it stops the tablet from going into any power saving modes. Anyone heard of anything like this happening and perhaps have a possible fix? Thanks.

    12 cores for gaming.

    Im in the same boat wondering which one to choose. I'm just concerned about the I/O die causing some fps loss on the 3900x as AMD has stated Windows will try and prioritise 1 CCX when possible.

    Huawei's packages allegedly diverted by FedEx

    Happens quite frequently, could be entirely coincidental. I work for a UPS depot in the UK and we get quite a few miss routed packages per day, not uncommon to see a US ground service package get miss-routed all the way over to here.

    Vertical Banding

    Something to discuss, got a new TV and I'm having some banding problems with it, some pictures and videos linked below. I have e-mailed them to Samsung and they're having me run the standard "turn it off and on and run the diagnostics" rubbish. This is the first TV I've bought since round 2005, just used my PC monitors really, is this sort of thing common with TVs? https://imgur.com/a/ZU16f8w https://imgur.com/a/q8c4Tfm https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qptHlvywlko https://youtu.be/nkleQj66chI?t=11

    Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

    Changed out the old 4 monitor setup for something a bit more simple 65" Samsung HDR10 TV instead.

    Asus Z97-C nvme boot support

    Sorry for the delay, on Z97 the PCI-E slots used by the M.2 controller only supports PCI-E 2.0 X2 and is therefor limited to 1GB/s which is why NVME is only supported by the PCI-E adapters on Z97

    Asus Z97-C nvme boot support

    As far as I'm away Z97 will support NVME but only with the use of a PCI-E adapter card. The on-board M.2 is only PCI-E 2x and is not compatible with NVME.

    Evga GTX 1080 ti Hybrid kit

    I purchased one of these for my 1080Ti: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00I3ETT84/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 All I had to do was remove the shroud around the vapour chamber, the vapour chamber itself. Add a 1.5mm copper shim to the GPU die (ones designed for the PS3 repair on ebay work great). Unscrew the mounting bracket from the water cooler, turn it around and screw it back on (for clearance issues, making sure to keep the block squeezed tightly together otherwise it leaks). Use the mounting screws provided to mount the block. One quick and easy hybrid mod without having to tear the whole card apart.
  11. Dayum. I use over 1TB a month. Just downloading game can cost you a good 100GB+ these days.

    NVidia is selling different RTX chip packages - Binning evolved

    Tbh this is nothing much new, board partners do this all the time anyway (Such as EVGA with their DT/SC/FTW etc). Only difference being the board partners will have to spend less time binning.

    Multiple monitors on a single GTX (1070 Ti)

    I run 4 monitor on m 1080Ti, 1 DP. 2 DP to DVI and 1 HDMI. The two via DVI are using passive adaptors and I've never had an issue. Beware of cheap conversion cables though, I've had 2 DP to HDMI cables that where crap quality and would lose signal.

    Asus Arez

    Bit behind on this topic so this has probably been answered somewhere before but, do that have to drop ROG or could they do ROG Strix for Nvidia and ROG Arez for AMD?
  15. Been out of the loop for a while, how well would this stack up next to a 4790k? Worth an upgrade or wait for Gen 3 and lower ddr4 prices next year?
