  1. I've spent the past few days thinking about this post and have yet to figure out what you mean... I'd recommend upgrading to latest version of bios, stock my same laptop got 621cb plugged in. They are quite nice laptops for $550 though, I've been enjoying mine since I've gotten it. I only could get 550cb on the bios it came with, latest is 1.19. Messing with TDP and power delivery restrictions I was able to get upto 668cb though.
  2. It is quite nice having significantly smaller vertical black bars, and if the content is centered properly throughout a video you can sometimes get away with zooming it to fit ?
  3. Anyone selling a GTX 1080TI Strix or AMP Extreme?

      Post a WTB in the classifieds

  4. My school doesn't have it blocked, so incognito chrome + DuckDuckGo = no blocked sites They aren't the smartest with blocking things...
  5. Anyone have an itx z87/97 board they want to get rid of?

      Darn, how's life been anyway? We haven't spoken to each other in ages.

      It was pretty shit for awhile, but I'm back around now floating around on the forums and discord. I also still have the overclocking itch like before.

      Ah I relate, I got a 4770k this week but have no board to put it in... Wanted to upgrade my sleeper build from the FX 8120 cause it's what I'll put in my college dorm or apartment once I go to college. Rather not have a $1000 computer in a dorm. :P Also gives me an excuse to mess with more hardware.

  6. Have you considered looking on ebay for a cpu cooler from an all in one prebuilt computer? Majority are pretty compact and blower style so that would be nice for just getting the heat from the cpu directly out of the dreamcast shell.

      i have a 780 Ti Asus DC-II, i have no idea where to sell it. 

    3. Darkman


      I usually buy and sell used stuff on r/hardwareswap. Not really a fan of ebay tbh, at least selling stuff there.

    4. Rohith_Kumar_Sp


      oh Ebay also got bought and shut down in India. 

  7. Here let me just direct you to my experience made in a reddit post... They did not want the second board so it sits in my closet taking up space, really should use it as a target at the shooting range sometime. ?
  8. It consumes as much power as an electric space heater but you can do more than produce heat with it cause it's a computer
  9. Dammit Yoshi you're a few months late.. It's summer now not winter.
  10. Okay, my S340 kept my 6700k (1.42v 4.7GHz) with a Noctua NH-U12P in the 60-70C range with SLI Asus GTX 680 4GB DCII cards. The top card would peak at a whole 80C. Currently the case has an X62 cooling my 6700k with vardars peaking at a whole 800rpm pulling air into the case. My current gpu (1070 strix) stays in the mid 60s and peaks at around 72C. Airflow will not be an issue, especially if he gets a Founders Edition 1070 cause of the blower design not introducing heat into the case and just pulling air from inside. Also the 1070 outperforms a RX 580 while consuming much less power.
  11. @WereCat Spoiler: I still have the board, it has memory issues and makes a useless waste of space that MSI wouldn't replace again..

      You having any problems with your 680s on the newest Nvidia driver? I'm getting a ton of game crashes/freezes.

      @Savant82 I haven't updated my stuff on here in ages, I quit running 680 4gb sli a couple years ago, I even sold one of the cards. Currently running a 1070... I usually just find a driver that's the most stable on Nvidia and stick with it since Nvidia designs some pretty garbage drivers.
