    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    Yep! No dice there. I'll probably buy a atx Mobo and use the components to make it a Plex server. I'm moving to a 3700x or 3800x based system for my Ncase.

    My Mobo died last night! Ram checks out, CPU checks out and psu checks out. Onward to Ryzen for me I guess

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    So I have been mulling a replacement for my 5820k in my NCase and I dunno about pricing wise 3700x vs a 9700k: I'd re-use my NH-C14 heatsink, etc. For $30-$50 more it seems like I get a consistently better gaming performance going with the 9700k, right? 3700x for $330 Mobo for $170. If I go...

    2500k mobo is dying after eight years. What's the new bang-for-the-buck CPU?

    So I have been mulling a replacement for my 5820k in my NCase sig and I dunno about pricing wise vs a 9700k: For $30-$50 more it seems like I get a consistently better performance 3700x for $330 Mobo for $170. If I go to a 450 mobo maybe I get this down to $125 for a mini itx board Memory for...

    144 is the new 60?

    Moving from 60Hz 1080p to 144Hz 1440p ultrawide did up my KDR noticeably in BF5. Hard to say if it is due to the ultra wide being able to see more or the higher refresh rate.

    $999 EVGA 2080ti Black Edition: A good deal?

    I had a 980ti with an accelero III so after I removed the bottom 25mm fans it was super easy. I'd say it was easier to install than the 980ti + accelero for sure.

    Out with the 980ti and in with a 2080ti XC Ultra

    Huawei Launches a Lawsuit in Texas

    So they want it both ways then: They want to be immune to criticism and consequences for known and documented espionage and infringement while also wanting to be considered equal to all the other companies that largely follow the rules of commerce. Good fucking luck with that.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    To clarify: You think I should be running intakes for bottom fans, my 92mm rear fan as intake and my c14 fans + the side fan next to it as exhaust?

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    I currently have a C14 + an intake fan on the side bracket and an Accelero III with fans set as exhaust and a 92 mm as exhaust. Now I am switching to a 2080 ti XC Ultra which can fit some slim fans underneath Assuming I have these fans as intakes on the bottom should I switch any of my other...

    $999 EVGA 2080ti Black Edition: A good deal?

    Good news: I found a 2080 ti XC Ultra for $900! I actually ended up buying a LG 34GK950F-B via Google Express/Buydig.com because I had $100+ in credit with Google so the cost to me was only like $680!
