    Gaming and Plex?

    I'm about to upgrade my computer and I'm trying to figure out the best way to go. I currently have 2 machines, one for Plex and one for gaming. I usually have 2-4 Plex streams going at the same time and I'm currently running an i7 2600. Would I notice a dip in gaming if I assigned specific...

    Motherboard water blocks without water?

    How likely would it be to overheat without any heatsinks?

    Motherboard water blocks without water?

    No, these are EK blocks that didn't come with it. I've had the board 6 years now and I'd like to transition this setup to a different purpose but I can't find the heatsinks..

    Motherboard water blocks without water?

    I have a Rampage IV Extreme Black edition with the 2 blocks on the motherboard - will the blocks cool the components enough to run the system without water?

    [WTB] White DDR3 Quad Kit(4 sticks)

    I have an X79 motherboard that has 8 memory slots. I'd like to fill the last 4 with some RAM that has a white heatsink and it takes DDR3. I'll consider any speed/capacity options.

    Gaming/Plex Rig

    Money isn't really much of a concern. I spent about 5k building my current rig about 5 years ago(I think). I don't mind spending money when it is something that will serve it's purpose for a long time and I know it will be reliable. Plex needs some love since I have the bandwidth to do a bunch...

    Gaming/Plex Rig

    I currently have 2 builds: 4930k for gaming/work: Photoshop, web development and FPS gaming i7 2600 for Plex(anywhere from 2-12 streams running mostly direct stream) - I need more CPU I've almost decided on the Threadripper 2950x, is there anything else I should consider?

    RAID Controller Advice needed BADLY

    I'm doing both HD and 4k. I decided on RAID 10 because of its speed benefits and I already have a BBU so no worries there. The board is a Sabertooth P67 socket 1155. I had SATA ports die on a motherboard a long time ago so I figured a RAID card would be the way to go but the built in one looks...

    RX 480 first review i found.

    This card isn't meant to be a high end option yet it delivers somewhat high end results with a mid range price point. I've owned nVidia cards for years now but you guys are being biased and uninformed about the results from this card. Also, overclocking performance could be revealed in later...
