  1. affordable hard line tubing prebuilts?

    I don't think there's much of a market for that. Most people buying prebuilts buy cheap builds or standard 1080p gaming builds. Not many people buy watercooled prebuilt PCs, i'd say most people who know about watercooling know enough to do it themselves. Also, as mentioned, it's not very profitable at all. Ontop of that, you'll have to deal with warranty claims if a loop fails, and you'll end up paying for the whole PC.
  2. inb4 they use Tin from cans they found in the garbage to solder with because it saves them 0.1$ per chip
  3. 8 core version of 8700k is coming this Fall!

    Little overreaction from everyone.. "Intel is panicking, they are going to have to work hard to get back from the hole AMD dug!" I don't think Intel is very scared.... realistically, we all know that an 8core intel CPU > 8 core AMD CPU. The 8700K can still beat the 2700X in many multi threaded loads, even if we ignore the fact that the 8700k can clock to about a whole GHZ higher than the Ryzen chips can. Intel isn't scared at all...
  4. how long does a MMO session take online?

    not 20 minutes then, closer to 25 he said the AVERAGE league game, over half of the player base is silver, so 30 minutes
  5. how long does a MMO session take online?

    League average 20min? lol maybe if your playing bots / aram
  6. Could Nvidia be skipping to 7nm for the GTX 11 series?

    I'll upgrade, just praying something comes that can handle 1440p... my 1080Ti can't handle 1440p 165hz for shit (on big titles anyway), feel bad for the people playing at 4k lol
  7. Could Nvidia be skipping to 7nm for the GTX 11 series?

    The gap between kepler and maxwell is the same gap between maxwell and pascal... 780ti = 970 980ti = 1070
  8. Motherboard recommandations

    Honestly if you can spend £150 and your planning to spend a further £200+ on a 7700k, your better off selling the 6400 and using the money for a b350 board and a 1600/2600
  9. I don't know what's causing it, but my keyboard keeps doing odd things. Randomley, it stops working all together and responds to nothing. Other times, it repeats the last key pressed endlessly, sometimes it acts as if the alt key is constantly pressed down, etc. I don't know what's causing it. Sometimes it happens a ton in a short space of time, other times it doesn't happen for 3 hours. I've tried updating the drivers, reinstalling drivers, etc. The issue doesn't persist using virtual keyboard. The issue does not persist on my laptop and other PCs.. I've tried reinstalling the drivers and this is a fresh windows install.
  10. Intel ditching 8th gen?

    It's intel, it's pretty likely they'll either ditch z370 all together or throw out an 8700k with 100mhz higher clockspeed and 0.5% IPC improvement. Glad I ditched my 8700k for the 2700X, screw intel
  11. Computer Blue Screening

    Sounds like a memory leak issue. There's ways to solve this but when I had this in one of my previous builds, a windows reset solved it.
  12. Intel Retires Kaby Lake-X Series processors

    Glad I switched to AMD lol I'll take the benefits of value and a good company over 5fps difference in my games. 10 month shelf life on something Intel would market as a HEDT processor. Cofvefe lake barely getting 8 months shelf life, what a joke intel is
  13. Overclock it or leave it?

    Might as well. It's not dangerous. Just keep the cpu vcore below 1.35 (as low as possible) and you'll be able to get atleast 3.7ghz.
  14. 2700/2700X OC Results Thread

    Yeah I think I'll keep mine at 4.2 because I can get away with much lower voltage than 4.3 or 4.4. I don't think 200mhz is worth the +.7v I have to add to get that stable.
  15. RMA and retailer return policy predicament

    You can probably get Scan to return the item if you use the law. EU laws and regulations are ridiculous. I made scan return 4 GPUs for coil whine, one of which was 3 months after purchase date. I made amazon return my one year old Laptop because HP refused to fix it. With that said though, I really don't think it would be worth it. Almost every monitor you get will have a deal pixel or two. Not only will it cost you money (because you don't seem to know the law too well) but it's kind of unethical returning monitor after monitor for an issue you KNOW your going to have. Actually, legally speaking, if you know your going to have a dead pixel, they don't have any reason to return or refund the item (consumer rights act 2015 states if the customer knows an issue will be present at purchase, the returns law is void) I wouldn't bother. It's one or two dead pixels and you won't notice them after a while. Most of these screens have them and especially higher res and higher refresh rate panels will have them a lot.
