  1. Alrighty, I'm going to be taking a break from LTT and the internet at large, I've been on everything too much for the past few weeks, haven't been sleeping, etc. So I'm cutting back to what I consider the essentials (Discord and Steam pretty much), though I'll still answer and send out PMs on here. I may check in from time to time, but I won't be as active as I used to be. I'll try and focus on reading books and doing stuff instead of typing and looking at random stuff on the 'net. xD


    So cya later y'all, and try not to tag me so much I have 1 million notifications when I do check in...

      I do for ARMA mostly.

      what dude no, but we can still taalk in discord, right?

  2. General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion

    Hmmmm.... I just followed the steps from a YT vid to get my Xeon X5675 to 4.2GHz, it'll go to 4.5, but ARMA crashes for some reason. Basically set everything to as low as possible, then bump the voltages to max and the BLCK to 183-210
  3. i want some help if possible with a set up

    Hmmm... you could get a bluetooth card and use bluetooth speakers in the lounge, but Windows 10 is iffy with bluetooth sometimes. If you have enough money, you could just pick up a used PS4 or Xbox One off Craigslist or something, they should be pretty cheap.
  4. DDR3L in a MacBook?

    Just get it from Crucial or OWC, you can put in your model and it filters it down to the RAM that works in your computer. My 2012 MacBook Pro 13" is running 16GB Crucial RAM and a 525GB MX300 SSD with no problems, been about a year or so since we swapped in the parts IIRC, maybe longer tho.
  5. Best PSU possible under $70

    Hmmm... the TX750M does look really nice though, and got a 9.5/10 from Johnny Guru, which is just behind a G3 or RMx PSU.
  6. Best PSU possible under $70

    What CPU though? Since I'll be running an overclocked i7 6700K and watercooling pump and then the normal fans and hard drive and all that.
  7. Best PSU possible under $70

    oke doke. My only worry is wires everywhere, since the case is a P5 and has no sides. But all the cables should go in the middle section so I should be good.
  8. Best PSU possible under $70

    @knightslugger this look better: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438085 ?
  9. Best PSU possible under $70

    Alrighty, I'll see what I can do. I could always get this for myself and use my current 620W M12II Evo, but the thing is blasted loud and kind of defeats the purpose of watercooling.
  10. Best PSU possible under $70

    Hmmmm.... I should be good though, I've powered a 6 core Xeon and 980 Ti off of a 450W CXM... I may be maxing out the G3 though.
  11. Yes. Wait for an hour or two (maybe more, depending on how long the vid is) and all the other options become available.
  12. Best PSU possible under $70

    RIP. So this is looking like the best I can get so far. I mean, there aren't many PSUs that are noticeable better than the G3 though, at least AFAIK.
  13. Alrighty, I'm building a rig for a friend, main power hungry specs being an i7 6700K from @knightslugger and an R9 290x and watercooling loop from @Damascus. So what's the best PSU to match with those under $70? I can get an EVGA G3 550W off Newegg for $70 after shipping and everything because of the $20 MIR. Are there any better deals though?

    Defo looks dope! The reservoirs on the top are a pretty cool idea...
