    Hey everyone. Someone gave me an FX-9590 and I would like to get a clean (no smoke), solid motherboard to play around with it. Something compatible like a Sabertooth, Crosshair V Formula-Z, Asrock Extreme9, etc... Anyone have one they'd like to get rid of? Let me know what you have and how...

    Air Cooling an FX-9590

    Hey guys. My nephew is an assistant manager at a large electronics store who's clearing out their AM3+ stock. With his employee discount he can get me an FX-9590 for $70. I have a compatible motherboard that's been sitting in a closet for a year (Gigabyte 990FX UD5 R5). I have a full tower case...

    Coil Buzz Fix Options

    Hey guys. I have a Gigabyte GTX 1070 Mini OC and while quite happy with the performance its slowly starting to produce coil "buzz" when gaming. I understand that coil whine is a complete crap shoot - one card may have it and another may not. I have a old Cooler Master Stacker 830 case with...

    CPU Downgrade "What Would You Do"? Situation

    Hey guys. I have two PCs in different parts of the house. One is my main with an i7-4790k and the other is my "spare" with an i5-4690k - both on Z97 motherboards. I have pretty much stopped buying new games since Fallout 4. I still play it along with Skyrim Special Edition, World of Warcraft...

    Galax GTX 950 EXOC White $99.99

    Not a bad deal if you have modest needs. Nice dual fan white colored shroud with a white metal backplate. Fastest factory clock speed available for a GTX 950. Its $15-20 cheaper than the lowest priced RX 460 2GB and about $35-40 cheaper than other GTX 950s...

    Bounce a question off you guys - ASUS Z97-A RMA

    Last summer I was swapping out the video card, didn't discharge the static electricity and it shocked me a bit when I touched the case. After that the LAN wouldn't work and the PC kept booting into the BIOS like it wanted me to do something. I flashed the BIOS to the latest version and it has...

    EVGA 500W for a G3258 PC - Sufficient for OCing?

    Hey guys. I'm thinking about getting a basic EVGA 500W power supply for a G3258 + GTX 960 build. I want to overclock the CPU as much as I can. JonnyGuru did a review on it and seemed to be impressed given its $40 price point. Anyone have any experience with it? Do you think it would hamper...

    [FS][US] XFX R9 290 Double Dissipation (Sold)

    EDIT: SOLD Selling an XFX R9 290 DD that I bought during a Black Friday sale. Just six weeks old - it was an impulse purchase that I really didn't need (its more than I need for WoW or Skyrim). The card is perfect and like new - runs very cool, quiet and stable with great performance. I got...

    Powercolor HD 7850 2 GB $89.99 After Rebate

    Still a good lower- midrange GPU. $119.99 with a $30 rebate (in the form of a check) = $89.99. That's pretty darn good for that much performance. Reviews have been saying the rebate arrives after a little over a month. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131562

    X4 980 BE or FX-6300 Computer - Which One to Keep?

    Hey gang. I'm in a bit of a dilemma. I have two fairly evenly matched PCs in the house. One has a Phenom II X4 980 BE overclocked to 4.1 Ghz on a quality ASUS 890GX motherboard. The other is an FX-6300 @ 4.4 Ghz on a cheap 970 motherboard. My sister hinted around that my 10 year old nephew...

    ECS AM3+ 970 Motherboard - $14.99 after MIR

    Been running it for about two weeks now - pretty decent for an el cheapo motheboard (have it paired with an old Phenom II X4). I got it for $5 more than the price they currently have it, but I still consider it a good deal for a budget build. ECS A970M-A Deluxe

    GTX 555 1GB - $69.99 @ eBay.

    I know some of you (many?) won't consider this a "hot deal" given its three generations old now (and wasn't particularly strong when new), but I'm pretty impressed with the deal. I was assembling yet another PC from spare parts and needed a GPU to pair with an AM2 motherboard and Athlon 64 X2...

    Would you invest $50 on an AM2 motherboard (XP offline rig)?

    Hey guys. I'm planning on assembling from old spare parts a Win XP PC for older games that either don't run well or don't run at all on Windows 7/8. Since support is ending in two months it'll stay offline after its fully patched. I have all the parts needed for an Athlon XP 2500+ (mobo, RAM...

    MSI HD 7850 2GB Twin Frozr $109.99 after $30 MIR

    MSI and Newegg keep firing off deals on the HD 7850 2GB. This one's a bit better (in my opinion) since its the Twin Frozr HSF instead of the blue and black single fan model that has been on sale recently. MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 25... I used the Bill Me Later option...

    Thermalright True Spirit 140 - experience anyone?

    Can pick one of these up for about $50 shipped. Does anyone own it and care to share their impressions? Installation ease/cooling/noise? It would be just for a mildly overclocked Phenom II X4, but its in a nice looking older case with only two 120mm fans I keep at a desk in the living room...

    Power Supply Question for a Spare Parts PC

    Hey gang. Just putting together a rig from old parts and was wondering which power supply to use to keep things cool in a older, not well ventilated case. Here's the case: Antec SLK3700AMB (love that automotive quality paint). I'll have just two 120mm fans (one for exhaust, one for...

    AM3+ Motherboard Choice - Opinions Needed!

    Hey gang. I could use your help in deciding something here. My current rig is my system specs and the motherboard/RAM is four years old. My mom needs a new PC. Her's is an nForce3 Athlon64 hand-me-down with XP installed. I'd like to set her up with a better system with Win 7. I have a...
