    I replaced a perfectly good 6-year-old power supply. These were the results.

    I figured I'd share this because it seems like no one ever tests PSUs for overclocking. It's just kind of "You need clean power." "How much of a difference does it make?" "idk, you just need it bruh." I've been running an EVGA 1000GQ for the last 6 years in the system in my sig. It's not...

    Anybody ever try the same overclock on 2 different PSUs?

    Did the better one make any actual difference to overclocking results? It seems like most PSU reviews are full of great data, but they never actually answer the million dollar question. I'm considering shelving my 5 year old EVGA 1000 GQ in favor of a new Corsair RM1000x. I would be going...

    Zen 3 and NVIDIA SLI

    Quick question: Is anyone actually running NVIDIA SLI with a Zen 3 chip? I tend to buy ASUS motherboards, and I see that serveral of their boards like the STRIX B550-E, STRIX X570-E, Crosshair Hero, Dark Hero, and a few others officially support it. I'm just wondering... you know... does it...

    Who ran Haswell-E for a long time or is still running it?

    I'm looking for some long-term overclocking data for the 5820K, 5930K, 5960X, E5-1650V3, E5-1660V3, and E5-1680V3, now that the chips are actually old enough for long-term data to exist. What did you overclock your chip(s) to (Core/Cache/DRAM)? What voltages (vcore, vring, vccin, vccsa...

    Talk to me about GSYNC

    I'm debating whether or not I should buy a G-Sync monitor. Right now, I'm using a QNIX 2710 1440P overclocked to 105Hz. If I run games with VSYNC on, my frame rate is locked at 105fps about 98% of the time in the games I play with the hardware I have. I like how smooth things are at...

    Thermal pads for 980TI reference cooler

    I used liquid metal on my 980TI's awhile back and reused the stock thermal pads. They were kinda dirty around the edges and one of them ripped in half. The cards work fine, but it's been bugging me. What thickness do I need to replace them?

    Arctic MX-5 vs Indium Foil DIY thermal pad

    So I mentioned in the thermal paste thread that I ordered some Indium foil to attempt to use like a thermal pad. Well it's here, and I had to chance to run it against my new favorite thermal paste. The sheet I received was 100mm x 100mm x 0.2mm. It cost me $20, and it's enough to do 9 CPUs...

    So I finally tried a couple of AIOs...

    And they actually did beat my air cooler. Due to me not being able to make up my mind and trying unsuccessfully to cancel an order on Amazon, I ended up with 2 AIOs on my front porch. An Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280 and an EVGA CLC 280. Naturally I had to figure out which one was better. I...

    Phanteks TC14PE @ for $49.99

    Just came across this deal and figured I'd share. Big air doesn't get much bigger. Tall RAM need not apply.
