    Touring the EKWB Suite at CES 2019

    You are thorough and concise I just really like your writing style. You cover everything and explain everything I would want to know or find interesting without going off course. You set a prime example on what I would expect other news staff members to follow. Keep up the great work.

    RTX 2080 ti, which QHD monitor to buy???

    I actually don’t know the titles off the top of my head this helped me. Because I only know resolutions if you walked up to my Monitor and asked if it was uhd qhd or whatever I can honestly say I probably wouldn’t know the answer

    Bought a pair of Nanya memory 2x4GB what is your opinion?

    Damn, I dont think I'v owned Nanya since DDR1 but I do remember overclocking the piss out of it. I don't expect it all to OC but that kit lasted me the longest out of any ram I have ever bought. I have no hate for Nanya.

    Why are people still buying 1050TI's and not RX 570's?

    Yeah, because I can’t wait to go out and buy a GPU with the intent to play on medium.

    Fore sure I remember direct die contact with 775. Already aware to take precautions, check clearance after application, dont crank down on cooler mount bracket. Realistically with direct die, you only need to apply enough pressure for the block itself to mount.

    I honestly didn’t know that was a thing. I’ll probably do that instead!

    Like I was telling mrgenius thats my next change to the CPU. I dont have a monoblock, just a normal cpu block. let me know if its worth it. They are only like $30 from the ones iv seen so I guess it not bad for a test, but curious all the same.

    Why doesn't my new desktop PC have a "Fast Boot" option in the BIOS?

    It might not be Os related at all that wouldnt affect the option not existing in bios. on MSI boards it should be F7 for advanced mode, should be under security options. Maybe the OP can upload some pictures of his BIOS pages so we can navigate him to where it generally is. Or atleast tell him...

    hm, I havent tried lower, I run 4.5 24/7 did you find dropping the vcore low at -100mhz to be more beneficial? and 4.85? congrats!!! Would you be willing to share some settings?! Are you managing that under water?

    Politics on TPU

    I don’t see anything regarding not talking about politics in that thread. I made a similar comment on the Linux foundation changes iirc. We have been tolerating political discussions thus far in news posts so I’m not sure why this thread exists. I am 100% against it in any part of the forum...

    phenom 1090T x6 @ 60$ Worth it?

    Right like you location specifies and why I specified USD. I'm assuming you wanted me to do the rest of the work for you...

    Why are reviewers so lazy? ( Not talking about TPU!!! )

    Damn, 49 FPS in a game makes it unplayable. PC gaming has changed under my nose.

    Thankfully the thread was about my delid project and not my overclocking endeavors, or why I chose the settings I did. Only that they were the same for both tests. So no harm there.

    I have troubles getting stable at higher clocks without it. I put the blame on my power delivery system but alas this board is white. Thank you!

    Meh I was going to replace the IHS in total with a higher area replacement and lap that to leave the original intact. But I won’t be doing that until I get the block for my gpu. Because at the same time I’m going to be applying fujipoly to my mobo and breaking down and expanding my loop. All...
