    MSI Trident X 9th (Intel Core i7-9700K + NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080)

    Yeah i hear ya, these reviews used to have a general analysis page where I would touch on these issues if they appear. However, since no one bothered to read them (least number of hits among all pages) they have been short formed and merged with the conclusion.

    Scythe Fuma 2

    I test coolers as they are because no matter what fans I use there will be nitpicking. Essentially any thing I do is not good enough for someone somewhere lol. Besides where do I draw the line on noise? RPM? some coolers use slim 120 or 140 mm fans which adds variables that then result in...

    SilentiumPC Navis EVO ARGB 280

    Not entirely true, the problem is the proliferation of RGB fans. The majority of said fans even when labled as 120 mm are actually a bit smaller. I have seen some of them that are technically 100 mm fans with 120 mm frame just to incorporate RGB LEDs. If a fan is 10 to 15 mm smaller that is a...

    Deepcool Castle 360EX

    8700K at the settings I use can still pull upwards of 170+ watts in an FPU only workload. Why the disappointment with CPU choice? Is there a real reason or is it just knee jerk because its not an AMD 3900X or other 3000 series part or Intel 9000 series. 8700K test bench is still heavily valid...

    Warhammer Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic Out Now

    It was just a general comment about what total war needs AI only basically examines what it should do for 1 turn it doesn't have long term goals that it regularly acts on. So my example above is how the AI should act. Unlike other games Three Kingdoms total war at least fixed the diplomacy to...

    Warhammer Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic Out Now

    See I feel different, I enjoy the historical ones more but the problem I have with them is diplomacy has always been shit (fixed in 3K to an extent but its still easy to cheese) the other issue I have had is fine grain unit control. The battles are nice but a more tactical approach would be even...

    Love my Ryzen 3000 !

    lol so much head scratching logic in this thread. So just did a check pretty sure that Raidmax PSU is 9 years old. Can find reviews of that model dating back on Amazon to 2011. So if that is anything to go buy its amazing it still works with modern hardware as many users on Intel systems its...

    Does NVME drives PCI 3.0 or 4.0, improve min/99th percentile frame rates in gaming?

    Many people don't seem to realize that quite a few games have started streaming assets from Storage to GPU. Granted thats why bigger vram buffers exist (a game might use 8 GB of vram for instance but it might only ACTUALLY be using 5 GB with 3 GB being cached assets). This is why storage speed...

    Cryorig Not Dead, But the US-China Trade-War Hurt It

    The old business practice basically kept things simple but resulted in what I would anticipate were lower margins. Notice they sold on Newegg through their own store and items shipped direct from overseas. With Tariffs it likely ate into that margin to the point they were taking a loss. From...

    3700X vs 9900K, that is the question...

    3700X grab a B450 board save a ton of money grab a decent mid range cooler and be done with it. If he doesnt need latest greatest then as others have said 2600 on a B450 will suffice. Considering AMD's chips with XFR / PBO pretty much push the chips as far as they can go anyway. You dont need...

    Scythe Big Shuriken 3

    And someone seems to have missed where every manufacturer has made it there mission to make everything gamer focused to the absurd degree. If i can't poke fun at that hang it up then. When you have companies sticking gamer gamer gamer on every item, and RGB LEDs as well it has gotten to an...

    Scythe Big Shuriken 3

    Yes? what might your problem be with this, that hasn't already been addressed. (note Pros lack of RGB Cons Lack of RGB) It cancels out. Again some won't buy it simply because it lacks it others will because it doesn't depending on the consumers inclination.

    Scythe Big Shuriken 3

    You would laugh at the responses. Some like RGB some hate it with a passion. I build systems locally the number of people that will pick trash with LEDs over something far nicer is quite high. Afterall if it didn't sell all vendors wouldn't be pushing them. So i will applaud Scythe for sticking...

    Scythe Big Shuriken 3

    Said noctua fan is also nearly double the thickness.... so depending on the case it may not fit. That said, of course a thicker fan with greater static pressure is likely going to perform better.
