    ASUS Announces the Use of Liquid Metal Thermal Compound in its 2020 ROG Laptops

    I've been using liquid metal on my watercooled GTX 1080Ti for over a year, the temps are incredible (around 35°C full charge) and no problem so far. With LM as the article says it's all about finding the right dosage: enough liquid so that all the die gets covered but few enough so it doesn't...

    CORSAIR Hydro X Series XG7 RGB 10-SERIES GPU Water Block

    You're wrong. The OC limitation on pascal cards (10xx series) is mainly due to their temperature. So with a 1080 card running at around 50°C you'll never get near the frequency that you could reach with one of these blocks and a proper custom watercooling. My oced 1080ti starts freezing when...

    CORSAIR Hydro X Series XG7 RGB 10-SERIES GPU Water Block

    Thanks for your answer. Ah yes i didn't see that it was Dt with the coolant temperature, my bad. But in some way that's even worse because the coolant temperature does not stay stable when the GPU gets hotter if the cooling is not enough so the ambiant air would actually be a better point of...

    CORSAIR Hydro X Series XG7 RGB 10-SERIES GPU Water Block

    Thanks for the review, but it's missing key points like the radiator and fan used, their speed, if the loop was only on the GPU side, what was the water temperature. If you used a cooling system that was not enough to remove all the W from the loop this could lead to improper results on the...

    Manli Introduces GeForce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti Gallardo Graphics Cards

    Switch to watercooling and you'll have 1 slot cards again ;)

    Yet Another Speculative Malfunction: Intel Reveals New Side-Channel Attack, Advises Disabling Hyper-Threading Below 8th, 9th Gen CPUs

    How convenient for intel that most of their older processors are impacted so we buy their new ones. Until we see a working proof of concept, intel can bite my ass. I'm not changing my CPU for a dark CVE number with no proof.

    EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FTW3 Ultra 11 GB

    Their card have the exact same frequency when overclocked than a regular founders edition, so the exact same performance, yet they sell them 150$ more than a FE. Plus the FE fan of the 2080ti is already a good model which makes the custom EVGA fan less efficient than compared to the previous...

    Bethesda Warns Against "Spectacular" Bugs in Fallout 76 Beta

    They did that already, it's called an alpha test. But between an alpha running on a few top end computers and hundred of thousand of possible setups, there is a gap they have no way to test themselves. What i find more questionnable is the fact that you have to pay for the beta test, which...

    Hey guys, I'm trying to flash the 1080Ti Asus strix XOC bios to my MSI 1080TI Sea Hawk EK X to break the 1.092v limit i currently have on the default bios. I've already owned a GTX 1080 that i flashed the same way i'm trying to flash my current 1080Ti without success. I've downloaded the...
