    WTB: Anyone got a smokin' hot AMD FX 8350 or FX 9590?

    I've heard so many good things about the FX 9590 that I can't help but want to try it. At the moment, I've just got a wimpy FX 4350, so cranking this system up to the max will surely add a little spice. But uh, don't expect me to want to spend too much on this. You know how it is.

    Redragon K586-Pro

    So I wanted a second keyboard for my setup on the other side of the wall, and I wanted it cheap. Cheap, but with EVERY feature I wanted. A few macro buttons, volume knob, media controls, and of course, RGB. Well, I first bought a Corsair K55. I usually have a certain feeling about Corsair...

    WTB Affordable 1070 Ti tier card

    I'm looking for something in the 1070 Ti performance and price level. AMD or Nvidia is fine. 1080+ is fine too. I'm hoping to keep it less than $300. Maybe even less than $200. Anyone have what I need?

    Power Conditioning and Overclocking

    Would using a power conditioner, a line conditioner, help with overclocking? To smooth out the bumps, dips, and spikes before it hits the PSU. Would it give any benefit to performance or overclocking? Has this been tested?

    Trade: 3080 FTW3 Ultra for 3080 Liquid Cooled

    I told my girlfriend OVER and OVER that "Micro-ATX just isn't modular! It's great for a side system, but as your MAIN RIG, you might want to reconsider!" ;D Well, she wanted ITX, and with her carefully saved money, she went and got her 3080 like she always wanted. We stood in line for hours at...

    FS: Strix B550-XE Motherboard

    Hey, I ordered this for the new 5000 series CPU! It's the ~new one~ for B550, with the X570 version being the Dark Hero. New and sealed. Turns out I just don't have the budget for this, so if no one wants it, I'll RMA it. Asking $400 shipped. Paypal, Amazon Giftcard, or ltc.

    Phison PS5018-E18 Controller

    Finally released in the form of the new Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus. I've been waiting for something E18 for ages now. Any other models coming out? $200 for 1 TB is pretty expensive, but honestly, not really a big deal, considering it's second gen PCIe 4.0. 7000 MB/s and 6000 MB/s write. But...

    FS: Massive GPU Sale!

    Heya there, I've got a ton of sweet GPUs. They used to be high-end, but now they're older, so they're deliciously cheap. R9 290 $110 R9 290X $130 R9 390 $160 Vega 64 $320 The 390 is a jankster. I replaced the fans with some bigger ones and removed the shroud, so it's just bare fans. It looks...

    WTB: Video card for $300 or less.

    Hey there, My 2060 KO Ultra just went MIA so I need a new one. This will be my primary graphics card, and it's just to replace my previous one, so I'm hoping for something better than my old 2060 KO Ultra, although only reasonably better. Open to AMD or Nvidia. PM me with what you've got.

    4-Port 10-Gigabit NIC with RDMA

    The QL41134HLRJ-LN. Works great, but it's got more ports than I need and I've got less money than I want, so I might as well try to sell it and buy a cheaper one. $450 shipped.

    WTB: Gimme your dirt cheapest, lowest spec Piledriver FX CPU.

    I just want to "finalize" my AMD FX system before I give it away or set it up as an emergency system. So I want your Piledriver CPU, no matter what chip it is. Yeah, I'll pay, but not much. This system just needs this one final upgrade. Right now it's on the most disgustingly cheap Bulldozer...

    Should I slice the PCIe slot on the motherboard or slice the PCIe rail on the GPU to get physical 1x?

    I'm building a sweet server machine and I want it to have a GPU for easy GUI maintenance. It's gotta be a low profile card, which I can find, but even better, it should be 1x physical so I can keep my big PICe slots free for what counts: The 4-port 10 gigabit ethernet card. So in that case, do...

    Don't forget to cycle your RAM stick positions every year.

    Wait what. Well, I just opened my PC and felt my RAM. The one in A1 is warm, and the others are cool. That means that A1 is always used first for everything, and the others only get used when I have a need to fill them. Well, not much fills 32GB of RAM, so I wouldn't be surprised if the RAM in...

    WTB: X79 Motherboard - Sabertooth, Rampage, something quality to use as my main system

    I'm finally trying to upgrade from my X58 system, and I figure an X79 is just perfect for me, so I now have PCIe 3.0, as well as an entirely new generation of processors. I get to reuse my expensive RAM, and that's the important part. If you've got an old X79 motherboard, shoot me an offer. I...

    I need flawlessly binned DDR4 RAM. What's the good stuff?

    I'm looking for memory chips that are essentially flawless on the silicon level. I'm not looking to overclock, nor do I care if the chips themselves are extremely fast. I need this flawless memory for critical applications that cannot ever have any errors or glitches. It's fine if it's...

    FS: Cooler Master Q300L mATX Horizontal Case - New in Box

    I'm sad I won't be using this nice case, but I'd be happy if someone else wanted it. It looked really nice, with its ability to lay horizontal and have such customizable front IO ports. I just ended up going ATX. =p $50 + shipping sound fair?

    NVMe to PCIe Adapter

    My friend has an ITX motherboard with an NVMe slot where a PCIe slot could be. So could it be possible to create an adapter that plugs into the NVMe slot and then introduces an x1 PCIe slot? I'm not saying this does exist or even should exist. But could it exist?

    Can a 10 gigabit ethernet NIC communicate properly with a 2.5 gigabit ethernet port?

    I'm building a router that uses a 4-port 10 gigabit PCIe card, and the specs say it's compatible with 10 gigabit and 1 gigabit speeds. Does this mean that it won't negotiate to 2.5 gigabit speeds? It is either 1 or 10, but not 2.5? I'm a total newbie to NICs, so I hope my question is clear enough.

    WTB: AMD FX-8310 or FX-8370 or FX-8320E or FX-8370E ...Or even the FX-9590??

    I'm hoping you can offer it for a better deal than what I'm seeing on that auction website. If you've got one, it'll be going into a sweet custom case server, so don't worry about it collecting dust. Message me what you've got and how much you want for it and we can discuss the deal.

    AMD Goings On...

    So what's the catch? AMD is doing pretty darn well, but a lot of people are saying: "They're only being "nice" while they're second. The moment they surpass Intel, or even Nvidia, that's when they go rotten and get greedy." Will their innovation stop? Will they stagnate? Will they start...

    SSD+SSD+HDD RAID Configurations - Is speed with security possible?

    Two 1TB SSDs in RAID 0, with one 2TB HDD linking it into RAID 10. How do I make sure that the speeds don't average out with the HDD? How do I make sure that data is drawn from the SSD first? I want the speed of two SSDs in RAID 0, but a backup HDD that can fit the entirety of both of them...

    PC2-6400S preferred, but PC2-5300S is fine too. I'm looking to spend less than $25, so it's fine to scoff. It's old RAM for an old laptop of mine, so I'm not about to go crawling to Micron and spend $100 on this. So lemme know if you have any. Thanks.

    Heckin' heavy power supply!!? Can it be used to power TWO motherboards?

    I recently ordered a used workstation power supply off a certain auction website. It's a 1060 watt BEAST from a Lenovo ThinkStation apparently. What does all this weight mean? I have another 1000 watt PSU, but it's not nearly this heavy. Is it just really darn stable and powerful? Anyways, my...

    After Market Cooler For Retro Geforce FX

    I'm too young to have known what was good back in the day, so any recommendations? I've got a BFG FX card and the heatsink is thin and pathetic. I don't need a monster, but I feel that I ought to replace this.
