  1. Does single channel cause stutter?

    This isn't Tech News. The thread was moved to the Troubleshooting section.
  2. GTX 1050 Ti (6GB VRAM) or a GTX 1060(3GB)?

    @ItsTheDuckAgain @AskTJ It depends on his location. When I got my 1060 3GB, the 6GB was $100 more ... so for roughly 10% difference in performance I had to pay almost 35% more. IMO it wasn't worth it at the time (but seeing how GPU prices skyrocketed right after my purchase, I now think I should've bought the 6GB version! lol). So yeah, it depends on price, while the screenshot shows 10$ difference, I'm going to guess that's US prices, and OP isn't from US.

      Don't think mine has temp issues. ;) Even if it was air cooled.

      Unsurprising results. We've seen Lian Li's implementation work similarly, so I'm satisfied with the results.

    He did, it's all in the OP ; If you guys don't want to help that's fine, but there's no need to post if that's the case.

      no joke, this is the accomplishment I am most proud of right now for humanity. It demonstrates both an ability and a sense of humor that is much needed

      @Ryujin2003 From what little I could take, a lot of them believe the Earth is the center of the universe and God is holding everything together.


      What I want to do with a flat-eather is take them to the top of a mountain, like say Mount Whitney here in California (I believe it's the tallest mountain in the continental US), bring a high power telescope, and ask why we can't see say Las Vegas from there.

  9. Yeah it's buried somewhere in the last 50 pages!
  10. @Christophe Corazza Linus mentioned a few times that he doesn't keep an eye on this thread anymore ... We just merge those threads for convenience

    @ScratchCat it's actually the "NOT a flamethrower market"
  15. I agree with what @Jurrunio said, look for an efficient PSU, grab a "lower" power or TDP CPU, less RGBs and fans and look into undervolting. As an example, my 8700 (non k) build with a GTX 1060 3GB (not overclocked) is drawing around 230w when gaming and just under 300w when both CPU and GPU are utilized at 100% (CPU and GPU mining in my tests, other tests could pull more). My build has 5 HDD, one SSD, 2 RGB LED strips and 6 120mm fans (having less of these could probably save 10 to 15 w total), you can read about some limited tests I did here ; https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/936752-looking-for-8700-non-k-real-life-wattage-and-temps/?tab=comments#comment-11445377 and here ; https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/936752-looking-for-8700-non-k-real-life-wattage-and-temps/?tab=comments#comment-11446833
