    Your PC ATM

    It's long gone now, wish I'd thought of that at the time as I am very good at spraying things I've (resprayed several motorbikes top-to-bottom that you'd never know they were done by a non-professional! haha). Another bonus: I left the power-on cables hanging out of the case so you had to err...

    Your PC ATM

    I really liked the cooler, it was easy to install for the time. But the only thing I could never figure out is why they called it the Lion Square.... when it's round? haha Great performance though. Had the Q9550 at 3.6Ghz 24/7 and with the BioStar T45 I could get 475FSB for 4Ghz but it wasn't...

    Update Realtemp

    Are you running Realtemp.exe or RealtempGT.exe? Running the latter showed all 6 of my cores.

    Which Camera apps do you use?

    Can't remember if I metioned it or not, but Perfectly Clears is awesome, it uses whatever cam you asign to take the pic with, then it tweaks everything and the end result isn't just a saturated mess. Really good bit of software - it also has a slider so you can compare before n after which is...

    Sexy Hardware Close-Up Pic Clubhouse.

    Fan broke on my GTYX 260-216 so I ghetto-modded it, pic is off the test run before shrink wrap . In disassembly mode (on top of an 8800GTX box Installed in system and running cooler and quite a bit quieteer weirdly, managed a better OC from this as well . :cool: Floppy Disk Clock since...

    Sexy Hardware Close-Up Pic Clubhouse.

    Finally found the blurry but old Athlon XP system, was cool in its time and think I had either a 6600GT or 7600GT in it, so long ago I can't fully remember. However, I do remember the crappy Coolermaster Aero cooler and the mediocre overclocks you could get on those Athlons.I was pretty flush...

    Ive been offered an Intel 9700k for below new 8700k price, worth it?

    That's very true about games finally moving to 6C/ or 6C/12+ these days, performance has come on in leaps and bounds but even tough most of us are PCMR it's partly thanks to the consoles finally having decent'ish specs and a proper amount of RAM to work with with regards to textures etc...

    Ive been offered an Intel 9700k for below new 8700k price, worth it?

    I think the main issue these days is that anything with less than 4C8T is considered a wasteful CPU when it's clearly not in a considerably large number of games. As long as it has a fairly high frequency/High-IPC and at least 4C it will do pretty well unless it's on a very CPU bound game but...

    Ive been offered an Intel 9700k for below new 8700k price, worth it?

    For some reason 8700 is ingrained into my mind, I forget the 8600 exists. Like you said it's mainly a sidegrade. I don't ever jump on the futureproof bandwagon as it rarely works out, by the time the future proof part comes in to its own theres usually more powerful parts for less, which in this...

    Sexy Hardware Close-Up Pic Clubhouse.

    Here's a few oldies, two of the RTX2060/i5-9600k/A1000NVME/16GB Dominator 3200MT/s / before I sold it and bought the W3680 and OC'd it, the only thing I miss is USB3 and M.2 as my games run pratcically at no difference at all. Still awaiting Zen2 or if Intel ever make a new architechture that...

    realtek and 5.1 speakers

    You can also asign which rear-jacks send out a different signal in RLTek CP, that might work. Also make sure you have set Windows to 5.1 channel audio in the Sound CP properties/speaker setup.

    Ive been offered an Intel 9700k for below new 8700k price, worth it?

    I was looking at benchmarks across many sites and the "9700k outmatches" it in quite a lot of games, and also at several renering type benchmarks, also includeing PC Mark 10 - If buying new then I'd get the 8700k as the 9700K doesn't justify it's extra price for a ~10-15% increase in games and a...
