  1. Gaming Laptop for around 1K

    Fry's currently has this sale if you're subscribed to their promo code emailer. Tomorrow is the last day. You can sign up for promo code. Best part is the no tax. I have the same laptop with the 7700 variant i7 and couldn't be happier.
  2. HOW TO REMOVE SCRATCH

    I use some automotive finishing polish or just buy a plastic/acrylic specific polishing compound off Amazon, they are like a few bucks.
  3. 144hz Won't Display on Startup

    Alright, so turns out although I had the correct cable it may have been a faulty one. I checked in the back of the monitor and noticed it has a mini display port. Thankfully I had a mini DP to DP wire laying around, plugged it in and voila all is well now! So when in doubt check your wire.
  4. Back in Red... or is it Orange now?

    So I'm having an issue if anyone has any idea here is the thread I posted:
  5. Hello all, I'm having a strange issue. I recently acquired a 144hz 1440P panel by Asus, specifically mg278q model. I purchased the correct DP cable that specifically supports 144hz @ 1440p. At first I had trouble showing anything higher than 60hz which was remedied by reinstalling Nvidia Drivers. Now when I set it to anything higher than 60hz it works just fine, 144hz, 120hz etc... no problem BUT if I restart the computer it has no problem posting until it gets to Windows login screen where I'm greeted with a black screen. I confirmed I am actually in Windows but nothing shows. Sometimes I'm able to remedy this by switching the ports around on my GPU at which point it resets back to 60hz and my login screen reappears. If this doesn't work I'm forced to go into safe mode and uninstall my Nvidia drivers which allows me to boot back up and reinstall my drivers. So i'm not sure what gives at this point... Hoping someone has some ideas here. Thank you!

  6. Yes more than likely that paste has hardened and can't make a seal anymore with the CPU. Places like Bestbuy carry paste as well if you need it in a pinch.
  7. MSI gs63vr 7rf

    I actually have the Bestbuy model. Have had it for about 4 or 5 months now and it's great minus the screen as you pointed out. But I got mine on a very good sale so I couldn't pass up on the offer. Besides that I don't have any of the other issues you explained. The only time it has even slightly throttled was while running Player unknown. That's it. Build quality has been great, taken it on trips many times and flights just throwing it in and out of my backpack.
  8. Back in Red... or is it Orange now?

    Hmmmmm.... I think I'm content with the lighting but a headset is a good idea.
  9. Show off your setup!

    I fixed this already... This was a pic while building. I cut the zip tie and removed the cable holders. I'm also buying the EVGA power adapter that routes them to the back like how you have pictured.

  11. Back in Red... or is it Orange now?

    Thank you!... It definitely is. I picked up my mouse last night from Fry's I also came up on a $125 Amazon gift card... trying to figure out what to do with that
  12. Back in Red... or is it Orange now?

    Picked up a Asus mg278q gaming monitor from my friend. 1440P 144hz goodness. Going to stop by Fry's tonight, hopefully pickup my 2nd Corsair M65 mouse. My last one lasted 4 years, finally the scroll wheel click stopped working.
  13. Back in Red... or is it Orange now?

    Definitely! but I couldn't push 4ghz flat... wouldn't post at 1.38v or even 1.4v but I wouldn't run my vcore that high anyway. No need for my application.
  14. Here's what I got on my Ryzen 7 1700x CPU: 3.9ghz @ 1.375v Max temp 65c - Ryzen 1700x Memory: 3200mhz by utilizing XMP setting - Corsair Vengeance RGB 8x2 3200 Details are in my sig
  15. Back in Red... or is it Orange now?

    Overclock update... so here is where i'm at stable & stress tested with Aida64 and Heaven 4.0 CPU: 3.9ghz @ 1.375v Max temp 65c Memory: 3200mhz by utilizing XMP setting GPU: +137 Core clock and +608 Memory clock Max temp 77c I'm very content with this and will leave it at that.
