  1. Where could I find a cheap used gtx 980 ti?

    Because this wasn't an apparent defect, these fires are usually caused by misuse or just plain luck (it happens) and it's just unfortunate that all were EVGA cards but I'm sure other vendors have had their fair share of flaming cards.
  2. Pre built

    Do this
  3. Where could I find a cheap used gtx 980 ti?

    No the date here is the 18th February 2018
  4. Where could I find a cheap used gtx 980 ti?

    Those posts were from either 2016 or 2017, it obviously isn't an issue now because you'd have thought there would be posts from...2018
  5. Where could I find a cheap used gtx 980 ti?

  6. $200 Budget GPU

    A pointless one at that...
  7. $200 Budget GPU

    If this is what you are wanting then upgrading the GPU will do nothing for you, this whole system needs to be scrapped I'm afraid.
  8. Upgrading pc. CPU choosing.

    I'd just find a used i7 4770 or 4790 on Ebay.
  9. Linus has recently said there will be a new channel coming, though he hasn't stated what type of content will be uploaded to it and we have no official channel launch date.
  10. X99 to Z370

    The question you have to ask yourself is do you use the extra PCIE lanes? if you are then stay with your current X99 system or if you really want upgrade you'll have to look at the i9 7900X on X299 if you want a comparable lane layout (5930K has 40 lanes and the 7900X has 44 lanes).
  11. I'm submitting both, core clock was 2126MHz and memory was 4556MHz.
  12. (stupid) Liquid Cooling ideas

    Engine oil is thick so even with the most powerful PC water cooling pump I doubt it will be capable of pushing that sort of viscosity through the whole system, that's why oil pumps on engines are driven by the crankshaft because they turn incredibly fast creating enough speed for the pump so it can have stable and constant flow rate. A tiny electric motor will not be able to spin up to the sorts of speeds a crankshaft can and in turn have a poor flow rate for this sort of viscous fluid, just not going to happen I'm afraid.
  13. Would adding an ssd speed up this computer?

    Putting money into a 12 year old platform is pointless and silly when you could go on Ebay and buy a full pre-built that has an i5 2500 for $90 (USD).
  14. Would adding an ssd speed up this computer?

    Obviously adding an SSD would make things faster but it's always going to be slow because the hardware is just so old.
  15. Best PSU for under £20.

    Drop down to the 450M then.
