    New NVIDIA Specialized Pascal 1060-based Cryptocoin Mining GPUs Photographed

    I'd like to see display output-less cards like this, but with regular pci back panel plates (and a better heatsink) for sli/crossfire/dx12 multi gpu(lol) use Obviously they would need to be cheaper than a regular GPU for it to be worthwhile

    How thick a self-adhesive thermal tape should be?

    I would say 1mm is probably best In the case of ram you are allowing for the differences in height of each of the 8 chips (per side), as ram is so precision manufactured the differences are usually tiny on older motherboards the vrm's sometimes had a big enough variation in heights that you...

    Smart tech, but just like those dumb rgb mouse mats, i would be nudging that raised box thing at the top of the mouse mat accidentally all the time I just hope they have fixed the g logo flickering i can see on the g900

    Xbox One X Hardware Specs Give Gaming Desktops a Run for their Money

    Should I sell my R9 fury?

    I was actually going by the fury x in wizzards reviews, not a regular fury, my bad, though i'm sure they choke at around the same point I had a non x fury for a while before getting a 1070, and i really think you will find the 1070 choke around the same point too, in between 2560x1440 and 4k...

    Should I sell my R9 fury?

    Unless it costs you next to nothing i wouldnt bother trading it for a 1070, its pretty much a sidegrade, check one of wizzards gpu reviews (the most recent review with both cards in comparison charts will be on more recent drivers), they will both drop below 60fps around the same settings get a...

    Problems with DDR4 3200 MHz running rated speed on Asus Pro Gaming Z170

    Stick to 1.35v ram voltage but try raising vccio/vccsa both to 1.15-1.2v This usually needs doing on these Asus boards (and the -a, -e, PG Aura etc)

    Linus Has Some Things to Say about Core i9 and X299

    I cant see its 'quad channel' ram working great tbh, even more so with epyc, given they will be using slower ecc ram with ryzen we saw its ccx latency issues quite apparent until you get the ram up around 3000mhz

    Enermax Unveils Equilence Chassis with Noise Dampening

    The Antec P180 was out about 10 years before the Fractal.. I quite like this Enermax one, but wonder whats going on with the top panel to limit it to only a 2 fan radiator in the top, its a shame as it looks like it has at least 70-80mm clearance from the top of the motherboard to the roof

    GeIL EVO-X Series AMD Edition DDR4 Memory Pictured

    I see these i was referring to now come in 4266 speeds, if they came with controllable rgb, or even an option to turn off the blue led's they do have off, they would be top choice for me Edit: nevermind, looking closer i see it's still only 4gb modules at the decent speeds

    Where do you cut if you are really on a budget for a new PC ?

    The introduction of k processors stopped me skimping on cpu (and mobo to a degree), but ryzen 5, and kaby pentium have made lower price points more interesting And with ram prices going up even the lowest spec stuff is barely any cheaper than 3000ish stuff from corsair, g.skill etc For Ssd's i...
