  1. I recently turned my full ATX system into an SFF pc in a phanteks shift are with a Corsair h60i 120mm aio. I decided to overclock right after I repasted the cooler (I was seeing high temps). Ran the OC 4.6 GHz @1.330v (it was the Asus auto OC) I can try to knock down the voltage but my temps after 5 cinebench r23 runs: - Stock: 77 C - OC'd: 90 C Are those temps expected from a small aio?
  2. My general question is: What is limiting advancements in the VR industry? Obviously there is accessibility because of high prices. But other than that, what is stopping VR from becoming the next big thing?
  3. Nuuuu plz my 6700k is my main rig plz don't take it away from me. Gotcha, simultaneous NAS and Plex running on Linux is my next project! Thanks man!
  4. Yep thx for the idea! Definitely will do it if I end up buying a NAS just for storage.

  8. Yes, although since the memory size and speed aren't as fast as current generation graphics cards I doubt they would help gaming performance. If you're asking whether NVIDIA and AMD will enable it for older graphics cards...I also doubt But here's to hoping...
  9. Hey guys, Just a bit of background, I first built an ultra budget gaming pc for my little brother w/ a pentium G4500 and a GTX 1050. I upgraded his pc to an i5 last summer and gave him a new case/mobo/ram/Corsair AIO, basically everything new except for the 1050 (+ a new monitor). So his old PC was left running on the igpu just enough for some word processing. Since my mom payed for my little brother's upgrades she told me she wants to have the PC and monitor on her desk because she liked the feeling of having one (for work nostalgia). I obviousl
  10. This might come as a surprise (or as old news) but Henry Cavill is a PCMR chad and a big gamer. Let's try to get him to make a video with Linus. Do whatever you have to!!
  11. Do you think that Intel's 2022 CPU lineup will be well ahead of AMD or not?
