  1. The G5's debacle was that it was a thicc layer of plastic paint over a metal body, making it feel like plastic rather than like metal, not so much that it's easy to scratch. I've got a G5 I keep as a backup phone, never had a case on it a day in its life, and it doesn't have a single scratch as major as what has been pictured on the Pixel 3.
  2. I mean, sure... but I don't like how I spent $900 to have a phone that looks bad after a few days of use.
  3. This tweet certainly aged like fine wine. We knew just about everything LUL
  4. Oh, I'm not implying that I'm annoyed by it, it's been that way for awhile, I'm just clarifying that you can't compare the 1k quantities to the 2700X's list price. At least immediately, we're not going to get close to that list price, or at least, outside of Microcenter.
  5. Oh my, I just noticed game mode results... Y I K E S Deceit at its finest.
  6. Fixed in bold. Intel's listed pricing was 1k bulk purchases, not MSRP. Kind of misleading for those who don't know any better.
  7. Maybe I'm alone in this thought but I think there's a difference between confusing an HDMI cable for a VGA cable and a product listing plainly not describing whether or not it's passive or active conversion.

    This CPU is bottlenecking the system?

    It's not that the 2500k is a bad chip, it's that the GTX 1070 is very powerful compared to GPUs of the 2500k's time, and demands in games have changed quite a bit. Unfortunately, even if OP were playing at 1440p, the GTX 1070 will be held back by the 2500k.
  9. That depends, I would recommend doing a couple things to decide if it's worth it: 1) Ask the dude how he had those cards running. If you're mining, the best way to make profit is reducing power limit to 60-80%. This keeps the card running at less power and running cooler, giving it more longevity. 2) Check cooling benchmarks and the design of that GPU cooler. If it's making good contact with essential components like VRMs, and still leaves plenty of airflow over the various capacitors over the board, that makes it an even safer buy. Some GPUs will have survived the mining craze better than others, it's too early to say who did better but we can make assumptions based in cooling performance and parts used.

    Upgrading from R5 1600

    What resolution are you running? My 2700X has been treating me and my 1080 Ti alright.
  11. Yea, the FTW3 is a custom PCB design so it wouldn't be compatible with any of the founders based cards. If that's what you're looking for, the next best solution is the NZXT G12 and a compatible Asetek style CPU cooler.
  12. Yea, not sure how to better phrase the title, but if you ever bought an EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 and wanted to watercool it without spending a lot of money on a block and loop... Well here you go for $60. https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-400-HY-5698-B1-Hybrid-Water-Cooler/dp/B07662S6GL/ref=aw_st_pd_dx_s_5/139-3206224-9672407?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07662S6GL&pd_rd_r=c08ef583-c845-4ab3-87a1-e69700dc7da1&pd_rd_w=rGhoJ&pd_rd_wg=NQrFy&psc=1&refRID=1MG5K4YND3GFRJNKPK40

    iPhone XS Not Charging

    The 'related feature' that you're talking about is supposed to stop a data connection, not a power connection. This feature also exists on other iPhone models, and those iPhone models still charge without being awoken, hence this is an issue. Holding your phone wrong btw.
  14. If that's the case, I don't think you could go wrong with an R7 2700X w/ x264 encoding or an i7-8700k w/ NVENC encoding. You could also wait a little bit for Intel's rumored 8 core, 16 thread i9-9900k.

    HELP!!! again...

    While I'd believe the RX 580 bottlenecking from an FX 8350, it shouldn't be as severe as you're suggesting. It's been forever since I've owned Bulldozer, but I put a thousand hours in Team Fortress 2 just fine on an 8350, I'm inclined to think CS:GO shouldn't be far off. What motherboard are you running? If the performance wasn't this bad with a 4350, I'm concerned that maybe the motherboard is struggling to provide power to a more power hungry chip.
