    Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz

    Thank you for taking the time to write this up. At 5.0GHz you got a good one; I doubt most people will hit 5.0GHz unless they delid it. Did you purchase the CPU, get it on loan to test or given to you by Intel?

    CPU Upgrade vs 1080ti?

    The only maintenance with an air cooler is purchasing a can of air to blow out dust collection - that should be done for the entire computer, all heasinks, RAM, PSU, and so on. Water cooling requires cleaning from time to time, just like an air cooler. Water cooling has considerably more...

    CPU Upgrade vs 1080ti?

    OP [BlackAzrael] I have used a PC since I believed one could do something, and that was around 1984 and began working in the computer industry in 1986, over 30 years ago. Also, I worked in the PC industry for a very long time. I designed and built computers, repaired corporate computers and...

    Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut - any problems with delidding after 1+ year?

    I do not know what happened to the reply I made the other day - it simply vanished. I have decided to use Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut between the CPU die and lid, and Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut between the CPU IHS and cooler. Thank you for your help.

    Noctua NH-D15S

    Please include the Noctu NH-U14S with one and two fans. This is important to many of us, especially in light of the fact that cooler is less expensive than the largest Noctua coolers.

    Noctua NH-U14S

    This is now February 2017 and AMD Ryzen has arrived, and Intel has increased voltage and frequencies of Kaby Lake, and many people are running the i7 7700K and i5 7600K at 5.0 to 5.2GHz. In light of this, please review this cooler with other top coolers so people, overclockers of the i7 7700K...

    Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut - any problems with delidding after 1+ year?

    After delidding and applying, I am wondering how well Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut performs after a long period of time of use, especially overclocking or CPUs that are hot at stock speed. Anyone have an answer? Thank you in advance.

    Far Cry Primal: Performance Analysis

    You can find custom models here, and they are compared to the base models, the only problem is, there are a lot of video cards, however, simply picking a review by Techpowerup should do the job for you. OOPs, forgot the link: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviewdb/Graphics-Cards/

    Has Radeon Crimson changed your perception of AMD drivers?

    It is true, some "new" drivers have a negative impact for AMD and Nvidia video cards and have to be rolled back to an older driver. Anyone that has been using both cards for many years can attest to that.

    Has Radeon Crimson changed your perception of AMD drivers?

    Hotfixes have been released and hopefully will solve the 20% fan speed issue. I used MSI Afterburner for many years to regulate fan speeds and overclock both AMD and Nvidia video cards. Yes, it is an extra step, however, it gives precise control, supports multiple GPUs, the program is free and...

    Need to know about Best Antivirus at present and Acronis true image

    Different antivirus or Internet Security Suites offer different capabilities to keep your computer clean, as well as different abilities or "features". Antivirus or antivirus plus firewall are two examples. One feature I like about Bitdefender Internet Security is it keeps your files from...

    MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Lightning LE 6GB - Review

    Thank you erixx for your photo of your Asus GTX 980 TI Strix GPU-Z info. My Lightning LE, picture of MSI Afterburner after second run of Haven. NOTE, Afterburner shows RAM speed 2x GPU-Z, GPU-Z would show speed as 1928 [for viewers that did not know]:

    MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Lightning 6GB

    It will live for a long time, however, look to replace fans sooner than people that use a lower fan speed. Mine varies between 13% idle to 66% maximum under extreme loads. Use MSI Afterburner to set up your own fan speeds, that will work automatically when you finish. If you have to run your...

    Zotac GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP Extreme 6GB

    I purchased the MSI GTX 980Ti LIGHTNING LE at newegg.com when it was $669.99 [U.S.] and overclocked it to the Lightning speed. [The LE has the same guts as the Lightning, just binned lower.] It came with a choice of 2 of 3 games worth about $120, and still does...

    MSI Unleashes the Radeon R9 Fury X Graphics Card

    Your first sentence, quote "what wrong with it?" Answer: Quote you, "so i think making nvidia hiding shit is in your head bro". First of all, I do not use words like, quote, "shit". So, that is wrong language from my prospective. Second, your first post to me implied or stated I was wrong...

    A free check. Open Control Panel, Power Options, then Choose when to turn off the display. Make certain Turn off the display is set to Never and Put the computer to sleep is set to Never. I do not know if Nvidia or Windows causes a computer to act stupid, probably both. Check the above and...

    Asus Strix 980 Ti - question about noise.

    This video is not poorly made, as the issue is noise coming from a video card, not how good the OP is at making good video shots. That is somewhat noisy for a fan at 45%, however not terrible, the sound should not be horrible with the case cover on, unless you have very sensitive ears...
