  1. Do you celebrate your birthday?

    My parents offer to buy me dinner at this pizza place I love, so I guess yea I still kind of do. Otherwise eh, birthdays seem more boring after your 21st.
  2. [US] EVGA "Back to School" Sale

    If the next series launches by the rumored September mark, EVGA has their step up program last I checked. That 1080 Ti deal looks brilliant, though.
  3. Ryzen Up: Performance at a Budget

    I enjoy beating dead horses and yes it seems weird you'd only go with a GTX 1050 but also a 2600X? Well, assuming gaming is your primary goal with this system. Personally I would have gone with a lower end chip, less cooling, and maybe tried to have nabbed a GTX 1060 3GB. It'll get the job done at the least.
  4. Would you do it though?

    If you asked me from 4-6 years ago, probably yea. Me with money now says nothing about that sounds worth hurting a finger for, especially since it significantly risks my ability to play video games anyway.
  5. Corsair Spec-01 Case Mod

    For some reason I didn't realize that, but there's still the issue that it'll hurt the case structurally, and he'd be removing the rivets from the top and front panel so he'd need a rivet gun to get them back together. It's just not practical to completely remove the 5.25" drive bays.
  6. Corsair Spec-01 Case Mod

    Those are rivets, so unless you have a specialized tool for removing them, I don’t believe you can take the optical drive out as easily as the HDD cage.
  7. By AR, I mean there are two $20 rebates, and the pricing shown reflects after the fact. Even before rebates, it's a decent deal. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1423704-REG/evga__gf_gtx_1080_11ghz.html Every GTX 1080 is the same so not much can be said about that, and the power supply is an ok gold unit. It's fully modular and won't blow up on you is all I care for.
  8. Prime Day 2018 Super Thread!

    If you need a phone, the Essential Phone for $250 is low key one of the better deals on phones I've seen in awhile. https://www.amazon.com/Essential-Phone-Unlocked-Display-Camera/dp/B074BWGRKH/ref=lp_17860712011_1_6?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1531776275&sr=1-6&th=1 A great, Pixel like experience without the Pixel like price (and camera, sadly).
  9. Could try the BackBlaze speed test, it launched fairly recently and I can't imagine it's traffic is being prioritized (or at the very least, not yet). https://www.backblaze.com/speedtest/
  10. Actually, versus other budget laptops available on the market, this seems like a really competitive and premium option. I'd have to feel first hand how well that little Pentium will do only at 1.6GHz, because that seems like a stretch for low to moderately intensive web browsing and Office use. Still, this seems like it has the potential to be a quick and decent suggestion for a cheap, premium Windows machine.
  11. 4770k or 4790k

    Holy shit, 4770k then. They’re roughly the same processor, with the improvement on the 4790k being slightly higher stock frequencies and better TIM between the silicon and IHS. Honestly I would only consider it if the cooler you have is absolute garbage and you can not, under any circumstances, replace it.
  12. I mean if you’re collecting for unemployment or disabilities, the money can be used for anything. I believe student aids can be spent towards computer stuff if it means helping your education but I don’t know the full terms on it, haven’t needed it yet myself.
  13. You used to be able to find an MSI GS63VR within that price range, I mean I paid $1,150 for mine, but I can’t seem to find one within a reasonable price.
  14. It's definitely an interesting suggestion, but if you pull a decent undervolt, you should notice both CPU and GPU temperatures dropping if your assumption is correct.
  15. delid i5-6500

    If you're willing to replace it if you damage it, I don't see why not. If you're capable, push your hardware to its limits.
