  1. titan x problem

    I would replace the thermal pads with new ones when you put the new cooler on (if you decide to go that far), or when you replace the fans. It's likely an issue with the way the fans are pulling the air because of some weird alignment issue, or they just weren't designed well.
  2. Kind of lost control of my mouse, Help!

    Is it an optical or laser sensor in the mouse? It sounds like the sensor could just be bad.
  3. Kind of lost control of my mouse, Help!

    Is it just drifting off in one direction, or does it move to certain points on the screen?
  4. Is it ok to wash case game with water?

    Unless it's necessary, then I would just use a damp cloth, but if you do soak them in water, just be sure to let them dry out completely.
  5. titan x problem

    Get a new fan/cooler before trying to replace the GPU, which is something that should be able to be fixed.
  6. Ah, my bad. I did not see the purchased tag on the processor, only on the other components. Well, in that case, it makes a lot of sense to use that processor lol.
  7. Why do you like this CPU so much? Unless you find a really good deal on it I don't see a reason to buy it over something like an 8700(K) or 8600, or 2600X. I'd also go with more RAM rather than faster RAM. 3200 is going to cost you more money for a not-so-great performance improvement.Scaling back on the RAM may let you buy something like a Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD which would be better value than the WD Blue, if that's a path you want to take.
  8. Will there be a oneplus 6t?

    Going off of their past release patterns, they'll most likely release a OnePlus 6T sometime around late fall of this year. I'd expect something like a bigger battery (maybe), and a more expensive price tag (+$50). Other than that, it's pretty much anyone's guess on what they'll do with their next phone. You could look at what Oppo is doing with their phones, since both Oppo and OnePlus are owned by the same company they typically follow similar trends. - Current 5T owner.
  9. Headset issue

    In that case, it might be a good idea to return them and either get another pair, or just look for a new headset entirely.
  10. CPU Utilization is Wrong

    That's what I thought, but the way he phrased it made it seem like it did (to me at least).
  11. CPU Utilization is Wrong

    How much of a margin of error are we talking about here? 2-3% or something like 5-10%? And how much better is CPU-Z?
  12. They could probably make a lot of money running their own.
  13. PC shutsdown during boot after windows update.

    My PC updated today as well, and it did some weird stuff where it shut down mid-boot but then was totally fine when I pressed the power button to turn it on again. It continued with the update and everything went well. However, with your situation it seems to be a bit more of a problem. Is your BIOS up to date? I guess if the issue is overheating you could try under-volting your CPU to get it to run a little cooler to then get into Windows and see what's going on.
  14. Dark Rock 4 Pro thoughts vs my "Old" AIO

    I went from a stock cooler on an i7 4790K to a Cooler Master Gemini II and the difference is amazing. dropped as much as 35-40C when rendering videos.
  15. PC Stuck In Recovery Mode

    I would recommend using your Mac to download the Windows 10 ISO onto a flash drive and try to reinstall Windows or recover your PC with it.
