    Will this work for airflow and cooling?

    So later this year I will be upgrading to the Zen 2, I will be using the successor to the MSI B450 (maybe it's B550?) Pro Carbon AC and the successor to the Ryzen 5 2600X. Besides these upgrades, my system components will be the same as they are now. I also have a Sound Blaster ZxR which is not...

    Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT and aftermarket fans?

    I currently have this beast of a cooler and its hands down one of the best air coolers you can buy. Can you replace the stock fan with something else? I was thinking about replacing it with another fan model (more for aesthetic purposes because I am going for a mostly black w/ red accents...

    Why doesn't TPU review more Phanteks?

    They never reviewed the Pro M, the Evolv X, the P400S the P350X or the P600S... what gives? I think both Fractal Design and Phanteks are the gold standard when it comes to cases.

    Fractal Design Define R6 TG vs Phanteks P600S TG

    So am patiently waiting for Zen 2 and that will be my final build for 5 years at the minimum. I want to upgrade my case before I do the rest of the upgrades- what would be more ideal, the Define R6 or the new P600S? I do want to focus on low sound, but I also want to focus on high airflow. Both...

    Told you... 7NM Vega

    I was laughed at and even mocked when I said that AMD would release a 7NM Vega... you guys aren't laughing now ;)

    Video issues when connecting PC to TV

    So I use to play Skyrim on PC using my GTX 1070- I would connect it using an HDMI 2.0 cable to my 4K TV and it worked fine. However, I just got a new 1440p monitor and I just recently got a Vega 64- when I connect directly to my 4K TV (duplicate display) sometimes it works and sometimes it...

    Phanteks Pro M TG or Fractal Design Meshify C TG Dark

    So my current build was really meant for silence, however, I want to focus on a high air-flow design with my new build. Obviously air-flow is key, but I also want a good cable management system. All of my current components will go into my new case, but it is important to note that with either...

    Finally ordered my Vega 64!

    Newegg is selling Vega 64 Red Devil's for $499.99- got my Red Devil Vega 64 for $499.99 (which is MSRP), but it also came with a $150 game bundle that comes with Assassin's Creed Odyssey. I have already sold my EVGA GTX 1070 too so in total I paid under $200 for a Powercooler Red Devil Vega 64...

    AMD to release 7nm Vega gaming card and a Polaris refresh by end of 2018?

    There have obviously been some pretty big rumors flying around about AMD and their GPU plans. Vega was given a pretty lukewarm reception especially since it did not surpass a GTX 1080ti which a lot of people were anticipating. Anyways, the biggest rumor is that by the end of 2018 (which is in...

    Phanteks Enthoo Pro (tempered glass) Vs. Corsair Obsidian 750D Airflow Edition

    Looking for a full tower for my next build- out of these two which would be the better option? I currently own a Phanteks P400s and they are definitely awesome cases.

    Best Cryorig air cooler?

    So I'm definitely going Cryorig, but I can't discern what the best option would be. Is it the R1 Ultimate, the H7 Plus or the H5 Ultimate? This will be for a Ryzen 2700X build.

    Best RAM option for Ryzen 2700X?

    I know the RAM situation was a bit chaotic with Gen 1 Ryzen- I eventually went with Flare X, but it was a lot more expensive then other options. If I end up doing my update to Ryzen 2700X (with a new X470 board) is Flare X still the best option or are there other options out there?

    Want to get into Deus Ex, but where should I start?

    I have fond memories of playing the original a long time ago, but it is a series that I want to revisit. Where should I start?

    Best air cooler or AIO cooler for Ryzen?

    Looking for an excellent air cooler or AIO cooler for a possible Ryzen 2700X build. I was thinking about the Fractal Design Celsius S36 since I am going with a Fractal Design case. I definitely do not want to go Noctua because I dislike the fan colors and I would want limited or non-existent...

    I am crushed

    Today was the day I was going to purchase my Sapphire Vega 64 Nitro. Newegg had a deal going on and they were selling them for $499.99 which is the best price ever. They were in stock yesterday, and I went to buy one this morning and they are sold out... I shouldn't have waited.

    Voice sound too low with TV sound bar

    I have a Samsung HW-KM45C Sound (with sub) and overall I really like it, but I often find that voices, especially in movies are way too low. Is there anyway I can tweak the settings to improve this?

    Why doesn't Thermalright get more love?

    I feel like they just fly under the radar. Their air coolers and fans beat out Noctua's air coolers and fans, but why don't they get more renegotiation? I have used them for years and I have never had any issues and their customer service is really good.

    Best PC sound card or amp for gaming / movies

    So I know that modern gaming motherboards usually have pretty decent built-in audio, but I am looking for something a bit better. I had a Sound Blaster Z sound card for the last 4 years, but it recently just stopped working. Also, the drivers for Windows 10 were terrible and the software was...

    Motherboard to fit new build (i7-9700k)

    I am going to be doing a militarized theme for my next build and it is going to focus on minimal use of lighting. The case with be the Corsair Vengeance C70 (military green), with the tan and green Thermalright fans (will put one of these fans on my Grand Macho RT), and last, but not least I...

    WTT: White Fractal Design R6 TG for a Corsair C70 (Military Green)

    I am going to be doing a new build in a few months and I want my new build to have a sort of military theme and there is no case that fits the bill better than the Corsair Vengeance C70 in military green. I realize that there probably aren't new versions of this case, but as long as the case is...

    What case has the best airflow / cooling options and cable management?

    So I have a Phanteks P400s and it's a pretty good case- the cable management was pretty good, but I would say that airflow isn't the greatest even though it has a slew of liquid cooling options. What case should I be looking at for great cable management and great airflow / cooling options...

    Ideal CPU temps: what's bad and what's good?

    I ran a stress test yesterday for 10 minutes and my CPU managed to reach 64 degrees Celsius. What would be considered ideal and what would be considered more of a danger zone?
