  1. What amazes me is 1. This is a big deal? 2. How's there 16k people watching WTF?? Side note, Maybe someone could enlighten me, do these live-streams help? Isnt acknowledging the outrage of a toxic online community just showing them that they can get a response? Wouldn't ignoring it be a better PR move?
  2. Wait Nicehash is back up? I thought that breach was the end for them.
  3. Sorry to rain on your parade but you gotta spend big money to get a decent chair. I got myself a DX Racer Boss a few months ago ($$$$) totally worth it as it is one of the few chairs on the market that gives me full neck and head support while being reclined. I'm also a bigger guy, 6'1 230lb That extra DX racer "cost" your talking about is the quality of the product they are making don't espect to get anything half decent for less then 300. As one of the other guys mentioned you could literally take a seat out of a car and mount it to your old chairs frame. Not a bad way to go if your handy with the right tools and have more time then money.
  4. Why not go for something like this LINK you actually get a specified warranty and the rating are alot better.
  5. Cool, if you arent then start using it with a fan , it helps with temps overall but gpus see the biggest boost.
  6. @Abyssal Radon Given that the NHU-14s is a single tower moving to a NHD-15 which is dual tower you should see a decrease in temps, Better airflow would help immensely too, assuming the airflow is sub-optimal in the first place. BTW do you have the Thor with the side intake option?
  7. BUILDZOID did a pretty good overview of the "best" boards in each category and he touches on which ones help with getting good stable memory overclocks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcqu-9Ejf60
  8. InWin 303c shouldn't even be on your radar, its one of the worse performing cases on the market. It doesnt even include fans. Is usb 3.1 type-c really a must have? It seems like something that will have more relevance in 2-3 years time. Fractal Meshify C?
  9. Your using a Zotac card right? Non reference card? Pull off that plastic front cover and your temps will drop, easy done.
  10. I should also add... Leave the top modu-vents in place, when i did my build I didn't notice any meaningful difference in temps with them removed only an increase in noise (so long as you run a good fan as an exhaust. This pic is terrible but you can at least see how everything is oriented, and the covers for the 5.25 bays were removed so I could get some air movement across the hdds.
  11. @Cotroneo Like others have said ditch the top fan Did you get the windowed sidepanel or the one with the fan mount? If you have the option use the side intake, there are magnetic filters you can use to help with dust.
  12. Watch THIS and then just ignore its existence.
  13. Does it matter? The point of G-sync is super smooth gameplay regardless of frame rate.
  14. With anything "gamer" focused your paying for an aesthetic/specific feature set. For a lot of us (outside of the business world) something like the ModMic on a pair of cans would give us the best of both worlds. Lets be honest RGB on a headset is not a feature set, its a waste of money and resources.
  15. Personally been using a G910 Orion, and just picked up a G900. I've also been a customer for the last 10 years, the customer support has always been great even supporting products that are out of warranty. If you want wireless and a cohesive software ecosystem for your peripherals Logitechs one of the only good choices.
  16. custom fan curve wouldn't be a bad idea then
  17. Why not try running fans @ 100% and see what it does, it might give you an answer.
  18. @KoeppColto024470 Bits power and EK make the blocks.. not to sound rude but the first thing that came up when I googled it. EKWB Bitspower

    You just have to look at it in terms of $$$ to hours of entertainment If you use going to the cinema as a reference, personally I cant go see a movie without spending $15 on a ticket. But that's Victoria. I'm going to list some rough values but I think most of you should see my point by the end. Say you go see a 2hr picture that's $7.5/hr for entertainment, and people pay that all the time, without batting an eye. Using that as a basis and assuming the following 1 Video Per business day, or 260 videos in 2017 Paying 38.40 CAN per year 0.63 cents an hour for LTT Content that's a hell of a value.... Especially considering if you buy a newly released game at $79.99 and only play it for 20hrs That's $4/hr an hour, Plus with floatplane, no adds and better quality. Anything that can help draw add revue and interest away from Youtube as is good. We need alternatives, Youtube has a monopoly in the current marketspace and until we see competition, things like the add-pocalypse and rampant demonetization will continue to happen.
  20. What OS? Its good to remember that despite its issues games are being developed/ported with Windows 10 in mind, win7 is legacy now. -First step would be run the integrated benchmark with your current setting, then run it again with SLI disabled. I wouldn't be surprised if its dropping frames b/c its just not optimized for SLI, -What kind of Mass Storage are you using the game on? I didn't see an improvement myself but its possible to see more consistent gameplay if you enable a larger pagefile in game. Although this may only apply if your using a smoking fast storage array for your gamefiles. -Personally I was able to get smooth gameplay (for the most part) despite being over my vram limit. -Lastly what are your card clocks looking like, are you hitting a thermal limitation and loosing boost clocks b/c of temperatures getting to high? Just some thoughts, I'm interested to hear if you can resolve this.
  21. You pay around $0.50 per gb for anything nvme, until they start fabricating more NAND to help ease the current shortage its not going to change.
  22. 26% off, not bad if your in the market for a large m.2 https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01LXS4TY6/ref=s9u_simh_gw_i4?ie=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01LYFKX41&pd_rd_r=11f46874-c056-11e7-93b1-594cd1c55104&pd_rd_w=yVWei&pd_rd_wg=HoHzs&pf_rd_m=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&pf_rd_s=&pf_rd_r=9TX9TJN6KX9MDBXG8E9M&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=07871b8e-d32a-4963-b98f-ba712077f7f5&pf_rd_i=desktop&th=1
