  1. What's a good computer desk?

    your welcome
  2. Dell Optiplex 755 Build Planning

    That Q9650 was a pretty stout cpu for its day, not sure if you can overclock it on that board but if you can i suggest giving it a try. How much did you spend on the dell system and other components if you don't mind me asking? I am looking at doing something similar for gaming system for my sons.
  3. The 1070 is at a terrible price point imo. you are better off saving some $ and getting a 1060 or dropping a little more $ and getting a 1070Ti.
  4. Awesome, considering that new 1070Ti's go for your total build price. . . But where are the benchmarks?? ?
  5. New Gaming Rig (Build or Buy)

    You wont really gain a whole lot jumping from 6700 to 8700k but if you are looking for max performance then you definitely want an 8700k 1080Ti build. I have no experience with them so i cannot really recommend anything. . . my preference would be Evga gpu and AsRock or Asus motherboard.
  6. New Gaming Rig (Build or Buy)

    Are you able to drop in a 1080Ti into the phoenix?
  7. Best CPU for fortnite

    budget? probably going to lean towards a ryzen build
  8. Lighting hit my house fried computer

    maybe your friend will be kind enough to let you plug some components into his pc to see if they work? graphics card, ram if same type etc . .
  9. Cooler master SickleFlow 120mm 2000rpm led fans for $4.98 [US] Make sure you enter the promo code listed on the item page at check out to get the discount. They also have blue and green available. I ordered 2 to replace my 15 year old case fans. . . lets see if the new ones last as long https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103091
  10. weird performance or normal ? (ryzen 1200 & gtx 1050ti)

    Not sure how you overclock but i would run a stress test like aida 64 for a few hours to see if you get errors. I know with my ryzen 5 1600 i have to set my vcore to 1.3125 to get a stable 3.8 overclock.
  11. weird performance or normal ? (ryzen 1200 & gtx 1050ti)

    you will have slower over all fps buy you are looking to see if you still get the large frame dips
  12. weird performance or normal ? (ryzen 1200 & gtx 1050ti)

    have you tried running stock speeds to see if the dips still occur? could be a oc stability issue.
  13. Well Memtest86 errors...

    I am assuming you have selected memory to the xmp profile in bios? Have you reached out to either Asus or Gskill for help?
  14. Which 1080 GPU is better? Asus vs. EVGA

    Only consider a 1070Ti if the price is right, you can push the 1070 Ti to 1080 levels but if you are overclocking you can push the 1080 higher. 1080 is still the more powerful card no matter what way you slice it. I would lean EVGA on the basis that they are a fairly good company to deal with if you happen to have any issues.
  15. Worth upgrading my rig?

    I don't think you will notice a huge improvement with those games. I say now is the time to try your hand at overclocking and see what you can do. Just keep an eye out for deals and if you see a good one jump on it.
