    BSOD with new keyboard

    Yes sadly, I had wireless Logitech keyboard do the same thing. Never did find anything else wrong. But as soon as I DC'd it all worked fine.
  2. I am using an Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme and Elsworth for my COU and GPU's and they both have interchangeable quick release hoses and I have both running in a single loop, if one pump goes out I have another and will keep me from frying my system. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Best "GPU" options at the moment for 1080p

    Not knocking anyone, but to be honest they will all give about the same performance. People spend entirely to much time and effort arguing about what gets the best this and that when one is an only small bit better than the other. imho. BTW your system is a lot like mine..Good taste there

    Discord Purge Has Begun

    For the most part, I agree with you.

    Best "GPU" options at the moment for 1080p

    I guess I am blissfully ignorant. Have used both AMD and Nivida GPUS and AMD intel and Cyrics(sp?) ( yeah I am old) and have always had the best performance and best stability with Intel/Nvidia. When 3dFX and Monster GPUs were the thing, I found AMD gave you the best bang for your buck. But in all my years in is IMHO that with a few exceptions they are all about the same and will get the job done.
  6. From your profile pic, what unit are you with. If I may ask?

    1. Ravenbear


      Ok, should have read your profile.. Sorry for the silly question.

    Discord Purge Has Begun

    That is true, but so was/is IIRC used for the same thing. to me what youtube did and other social media sights are like killing a fly with a sludge hammer.

    Smoking Barrels - LTT's Unnofficial Gun Club!

    Lol, you might be right. I got in teaching Women and children self-defense due to the fact the amount of BS out there, that was at the lest stupid and most will get you killed. I did mainly in my off time while I was in the Army. My NRA instructor, I used to teach classes for people to get their CC here in Maine. Now that we are a ConstuionalCarry state that has pretty much stopped. Though from a legal point I think that going through the course and getting your CC permit would go in your favor in court if you did have to use your weapon. But anyway, being retired I did that to have something to do and to keep me out of the bars and away from hookers. So now I have switched to building systems for family and friends, though I still compete in 3 gun and Glock GSSF. I would like to get into Cowboy shooting but not much of that up here and what is a long drive.

    GPU monitoring and fan control

    This may sound like a noob question, but what is Nivida monitoring program?

    Trying to choose a graphics card for my first build

    You might want to look into this if you do not want the hassle of DIY WC. This is what I am using and it is easy to set up. https://www.aquatuning.us/water-cooling/kits-systems-and-aios/internal-kits/alphacool/eiswolf/24112/alphacool-eiswolf-240-gpx-pro-nvidia-geforce-rtx-2080/2080ti-black-m02

    RTX 2080ti FE Thoughts

    Lol, well I retired from the US Army as an E-8 with 22 years in, then I have a 100% disability rating, so more than enough to keep me out of trouble.

    RTX 2080ti FE Thoughts

    Thanks for the info... I am going to water cool both of mine and the CPU as well. it gets pretty warm in my office in the summer, so I'd rather spend the money and not brick something..
