    Time to upgrade from my FX 8320

    Yeah I think im gonna hold out till I get enough for at least the taichi and 3200 c14 ram. Even if it isnt that much of an upgrade, it will hold off the upgrade bug later and I wont regret not buying it later.

    Time to upgrade from my FX 8320

    So Newegg has a sale right now and I can get the ASRock ab350 fatality and g.skill 2400 forte for under $275 shipped. Should I jump on that or hold off and get the ac/sli or Taichi and 3200?

    Time to upgrade from my FX 8320

    Is the taichi worth the extra 50 bucks over the killer sli/ac? I know the vrm'S are better but is that the main difference. Specially if im gonna use my own sound card? And after readig what you guys said, is the 3200 c14 that big of a difference over say 2400 c15? Im getting closer to...

    Time to upgrade from my FX 8320

    I wont be upgrading my video card for atleast another year. I tend to skip a gen or two when i upgrade my gpu. I havent seen any proof that zen+/2 will be here in a month or two or even three. Usually you wilk see a review -or preview a month becore its released.

    Time to upgrade from my FX 8320

    That was my thought when i originally purchased the 8320. The i5-8350 is already forgotten about. 4 cores no extra threads Overclocking my already overclocked 8320 isnt gonna give me the performance of an i5-8400/r5 1600 or better. Its still lags way behind. If the i5-8400 was...

    never had very good luck with overclocking this cpu. I had it stable at 4.5ghz at one point but it and the vr's just ran way too hot. Threadripper is way out of my budget.

    Time to upgrade from my FX 8320

    I would be getting the 1700 through my works purchasing power program so I wont be paying alot up front out of pocket(its the only processor they carry). If im gonna pay strait up im going with the 1600 Purchasing plan is save up till I get enough for board and ram (two to three weeks )and...

    Time to upgrade from my FX 8320

    I'm not a big fan of waiting for new tech, if that was the case I will always be waiting. I'm set on putting my current rig in my media server, it currently has an athlon x3 445 in it with 6gb or ram or something like that and with plex and everything thing else running off it, it is really...

    Flashed a 2gb bios on my 1gb gt 640

    so I was using gpupi and it made it crash. so it doesnt really have 2gb of ram. Looks like the new physx requires 2gb of ram. I used a few different 2gb bioses and they all worked but all 1gb bios disable physx in Arkham Knight. So on a side note, as it works in arkham knight and gives me a...

    Flashed a 2gb bios on my 1gb gt 640

    So I was bummed that my gt 640 wouldnt work as a physx card with batman arkham night. So I figured I would mess with it a little and see what I needed to make it work. Since its a gk107 gpu, there is no bios modding tool for it. So I started looking at different bios's with different clocks...

    Issues with 3840x2160 60hz on NUC6i5

    I gave up for now. The club3d adapter I got needs a firmware update and the program that club3d sent me isn't compatible with my Intel iris 540 for some reason. Until I find some one that has a different video card that had a Mini DisplayPort to update the firmware I'm kinda screwed. 30fps is...

    Issues with 3840x2160 60hz on NUC6i5

    I tried a custom but maybe not the right one. Yeah it's only got one 2.0 port and it's clearly marked I'm hoping something here isn't a dud
