  2. My computer (Poseidon) and my room mate's computer (Nomad) get to be together on our new mega desk. One giant desk is better than two.


  3. Depends on your definition of "gaming". You will probably be playing on low to medium settings depending on the game.
  4. Ya I noticed this also. I would like to know what's going on.
  5. I usually do Optimized defaults, but I would use discretion depending on your situation. If you were having problems with it I would do the fail safe ones. But if you aren't having problems and just want default settings do optimized.
  6. I want a K9 Thunder from Samsung, with the trailer part.
  7. I have never ordered from Dell personally, but I work in a IT department that is Dell certified and uses Dell for everything. The parts we order come in on the earliest date, almost all the time.
  8. Poseidon got his GTX 660 back for Folding and PhysX. I had lent it to a friend until the 1060s came out. So now we got a 960 and a 660 again. 

  9. A lot of manual overclocking is trail and error. So try stuff and see if it is stable. Test the overclock with a burner or benchmark. On overvolting, don't go over like 1.5 volts on the CPU or it could significantly shorten the life of the processor. I keep my 8300 around 1.4 volts and get 4.2 GHz. Hope I helped
  10. Ya your recovery partition is not intact or nonexistent. The windows 10 usb install tool has a repair option. Follow the instructions on this link to make one for free: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10/
