  1. When you take your work mechanical keyboard home to clean / vacuum...and glitter falls out of it. Then you remember, your troll co-workers glitter bombed your desk 1.5 year ago. Why is there still glitter?! 😭

      @Grumpy Old Man 👀 👀 👀

      Two troll co-workers were trying to prank people at the office, and they wanted to mess with my supervisor.

      Thinking I was in on the prank, they instead lured me out of my office space, and blasted my desk.

  5. FINALLY moved my Intel X99 (dead) CPU water cooling loop into my Z390 system...assignment that has been looong overdue 😅

      @TofuHaroto I've had my i7-8086K / Z390 since Feb 2019...when my i7-6800K decided to sleep forever one night...

  6. My GPU was supposed to get delivered May 27th...but UPS decided to "hold it" at the local UPS warehouse...still 'In Transit' status with no delivery date. Did they lose the damn package or something?? 😐

      @Jurrunio Yeah, the 5700 XT 😞

      Can I not just go pick it up directly from their warehouse...?

  7. Holy moly! i9-10900K's are programmed with default max Core Current of 245A, and up to 310W+ on the CPU alone when overclocked.

    Looks like launch BIOSes on Z490 is also hot garbage, comparable to Ryzen 1000-series launch. Uhh...for those who pre-ordered...

      @AshRiver some of the reviewers are using 360mm AIO's (e.g. Corsair H150i Pro), and with MCE enabled in the BIOS, it still jumps to 80*C+.

  8. Wow first time dealing with Intel's RMA team. I am impressed!
    I was willing to pay a fee for a replacement i7-6800K (note, Broadwell-E chip) through Intel, as warranty expired in January 2020.
    Due to the unknown ETA of a replacement CPU, they are willing to give me a $441 refund. 😇

    1. -rascal-

      -rascal-

      @Tristerin Yeah no kidding! I was expecting to *maybe* get a replacement, or nothing at all, but they gave me the option to refund the Recommended Customer Price shown on the Intel ARK page.

  9. I think Pascal's lack of proper DX12 implementation is now biting its back side in RDR2. We know that Pascal's DX12 support is more like its predecessors which predates DX12, that it doesnt support all its features in hardware. For example, Pascal isn't hardware-capable for Asynchronous Compute, maybe more. At the same time, Rockstar group is one of those developers which a huge pile of resources after making good games one after the after for this long and their culture don't mind spending extra time for their work as long as it means increasing quality. This means they have what it takes to fully squeeze out the potential of everything they use, game consoles and APIs alike. When they do this to DX12 and Vulkan, half-assed implementations like Pascal on DX12 shows their limitations.

     

    Of course this is just my guess, Nvidia could totally suddenly launch a surprise drivers that brings the 1060 6GB back to RX 580 8GB level. I just don't think this will happen deep in my heart.

     

    Or you could call be a salty Pascal owner (1060 in laptop, 1070 in desktop)

      You raaaang? ?

      Wasn't expecting this hahah

       

      Now that I got pulled into this, reading up in this RDR2 / DX12 / Pascal thing now.

      "Tech Gezus" over at Gamers' Nexus released a bunch of content about RDR2, so might be good to have a watch ?

  10. Got a phone call...confirmed the ol' ASUS X99 Deluxe II motherboard is toast...EVGA PSU took the board with it. 

    Good news, all 32GB of DDR4 RAM is still alive and kicking.

    i7-8086K vs i7-9700K vs i9-9900K? What do?

      @Bananasplit_00

      EVGA P2 850W...not expecting that tier of PSU to give out and take a motherboard with it...

  11. Welp looks like my PSU kicked the bucket, and took my X99 motherboard with it. Hope the RAM is okay...because that is $500+ worth of it. RIP...?

      @Spotty

      Yes, it is hooked up to a surge protector, but not a UPS.

       

      I'm going to see if I can get the CPU + Motherboard + RAM tested tomorrow...that is when the snowing stops, and not get snowed in (damn Polar Vortex finally hit us)

       

      I don't know, maybe @jonnyGURU might have some insight. Anyways, I'm going to start an RMA with EVGA tomorrow as well.

      EVGA P2 850W.

       

      Not 100% sure, but power has been a little unstable (lights flickering/dimming, but no outage) due to heavy wind / snow in the last few days, so it could be that. My brother's system, router, my monitors, and printer are on the same circuit...and those were fine.

  15. So how bad is the RTX 2080?

    How impressive is the RTX 2080ti...

    Don't be foooled by reviews...here is what a non blower, a good 1080ti can do for you :)

    This had the card running from 1987mhz to 2025mhz throughout the benchmark, memory at 11 520mhz

      Gamer's Nexus has their review for the RTX 2080 FE up.

      Basically the GTX 1080 Ti in performance; even the 0.1% are within +/- 3 FPS -- in some cases, exactly the same.

      "Conclusion: Is the RTX 2080 Worth It? No -- not yet."

      @dizmo true the 30% price hike on memory, but $1100 ~ $1200 CAD for a RTX 2080? $1700 CAD for a RTX 2080 Ti??!

  17. So watched all the reviews...here's what'up!

     

    RTX 2080 = GTX 1080ti FE

    GTX 1080ti non FE > RTX 2080

     

    RTX 2080 = GTX 1170 in performance, for GTX 1080ti money

    RTX 2080ti =  GTX 1180 in performance, for Titan X money

     

    way to go nivida!

    Found a way to launch mid-range level performance, for enthuiasts grade pricing.

      My FX-8350 system has been sitting to the side for a good few months now....it might not even exist soon(er or later) :D

      @JurunceNK that the thing I noticed with the H440. It looks nice, but it's lacking in the airflow department. I think it was one of the drawbacks with attempting to get a clean look for the case design.

       

      You have any recommendations on where/how the pump should be mounted, tubing configuration, etc?

      @i_build_nanosuits

      We will see what works with the X99 Deluxe II motherboard, and the rest of my other components.
