  1. My most expensive mistake has simply been overbuilding the crap outta my stuff. I run a 2080ti, I have a 3900x I need to pick up today, I use a msi ace x570 board, 32 gb of RAM, 1.5 tb of NVME storage and full custom loop cooling, all for a computer I use for like an hour or 2 a week of gaming and the rest of the time is spent watching youtube and going on forums and stuff. I enjoyed building it but in Canadian I have well over 5 grand into the machine and its a waste. As a more specific instance though I bought a 35 inch ultrawide last year and had to sell it because it made me motion sick sitting that close to a big screen, that was a $750 mistake
  2. I dont agree at all with mine but no way I want to deal with the Don so ill just stay here lol. Also Im diabetic so maybe Ill just stick around in a country where I can afford to buy insulin
  3. After I made my post I realized Im stupid and forgot about that lol. I was on my way back to edit/delete my post but you already got it lol. So I guess ill just leave my mistake intact
  4. I wish I made the money I make in Canada in the states. With stores like microcenter Id be building a pc every 6 months and not waiting for 2 months for water cooling parts to come in
  5. Yep even when not charging for it if you photocopy and distribute said copies of a copyrighted work its certainly breaking the law
  6. Memory Express would be my recommendation. They price match online, they dont over charge to build and they carry quality parts with a good warranty program if you are wanting more than manufactures. I believe they do build to order through their online center although youll have to double check, I know they do it in the store. What kind of budget are you dealing with
  7. Where are you located in Canada?
  8. Ya thats what I see too, I figure its basically a glitch in the matrix that will be fixed when they can
  9. I literally just posted about this right below you, yep Im having issues too
  10. I went there a little over an hour ago and there was a video for the spouse build listed but it was locked even though I was a subscriber, I just figured it was a glitch. I just tried to go there now and when I try to load the LTT channel it just gives me an empty space where the videos are supposed to be. I tried on my PC and my Mac, is it doing this for anyone else?
  11. That would depend on who you are, for some people thats a ton of money, for others not so much. But if you are trying to build with a budget in mind, saving $270 there would allow you to move up a couple levels on your processor, or a level in GPU or whatever. I get what you mean though
  12. Well my build had like 27 fittings so if all the sudden they were like half the price that would add up pretty quick
  13. Ok so sometime this week I am going to be tearing down my brothers computer and redoing some of it. He has a 7600k, and asus TUF Z270 MK2 and a 1070. It going to have a hyper 212black cooler. He really knows nothing, like I went to his place last week and turned on his XMP which was never on, hes had it for a couple years now. I wanna kinda tune this thing up a little bit but my PC is a full custom loop and I run Ryzen so thats what im used to OC'ing. My question is what is a safe multiplier/voltage to shoot for on this thing thats gonna be rock solid stable. I want him to get the most out of this machine but I dont want him to have any issues so Im fine being a bit more on the cautious side as opposed to pushing it to the ragged edge.
  14. I was running a 2700x with my 2080ti earlier this year and it worked great, you are gonna be perfectly fine.
  15. Fishing line, use fishing line like dental floss to get between the cpu and the cooler.
  16. I think it depends on the age of the psu. If its 6 or 7 years old ill pass but if it was like 2-3 years old or even current model year I wouldnt advise against it
  17. Its not something I would get but the work looks good and if you are happy with it then you made an excellent choice
  18. I have the ace, initially bought it for a 3950x but now am thinking maybe I just need a 3900 instead, but as far as the mobo goes the bios is nice to work with, the board has a very logical friendly layout and as for the sata ports, how many does one need now? I mean I am only using one and then a pair of m.2 and once 4tb m.2 hits ill be ditching sata drives all together
  19. This thing is great for both smoothing your ends and making minor adjustments to length, I used one for my first loop, tossed it on a cordless drill and it was fantastic https://www.primochill.com/collections/rigid-tools/products/primochill-rfb-rigid-tubing-finishing-bit-10mm-id-x-12mm-od
  20. Oh I missed that, ya pretty much every reviewer is saying the 1660 super is the way to go if you are looking for $$ per fps. You can always put the savings towards bigger storage if you think you might need more
  21. You should find ram that either 3000 or 3200, besides that you are good to go
  22. Getting a 2700x and a x570 board makes no sense unless you plan on upgrading to a 3rd gen ryzen eventually. If you dont then go to a x470 or b450 board.
