Re: New system

Not trying to be a dick... Have you counted standoffs and made sure there is a screw used for each? Some cases have standoffs in locations not drilled out on the board. Also, I'm offering again to send you out a brand new board in the box if you'd like to try a second board. LOL - yea, I thought of...

Re: APC Back-UPS 550 Finally Giving Scream of Death After 7 Years

Yea I would recommend APC also as the others I have used all failed soon after warranty. My APC's have been so good taht this is my 3rd battery replacement for them and they are still chugging along! Mine are 1500va units though so replacing batteries is normally a lot cheaper than buying a new unit...

Re: New system

Wife says the same thing. Cant wait for 2019! Will rip it apart again today and see if I can figure anything out...

Re: New system

Update - seems to be running very stable now. I switched to MX-4 paste and I took and added a tiny rubber strip (about the thickness of 2 sheets of paper) from another water cooler I had to try and get it to tighten up a little more. I have not tried overclocking again nor have I messed with the gig...

Re: Corsair Hydro H100i RGB Platinum CPU Cooler Review

nice! I wish they would start to include the ability to add a gpu line on. I never understood why they dont sell them with a splitter or even dual pumps and have a code inside that you can order the gpu block you need. Seems like a win win for everyone involved as I imagine most people that would be...

Re: Intel Core i9-9900K CPU Review

Damn you Intel, you whooped AMD again! Come on AMD, I am voting so hard for you guys/gals to get something that will decimate Intel's offering in price and performance but you have been letting me down. I am running a Ryzen CPU now too but when a 16 thread processor can beat a 32 thread processor, s...

Re: Replacing wireless card in C700 laptop

I've finally figured out that C700 is locked to Compaq wireless cards after buying 2 Dell wifi cards from eBay


from http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads ... 042/page-5

I would go with an external/usb wifi card to upgrade.

Re: Router to Router

You should be able to hook the G router with a network cable to your router now and set a separate SSID without much fuss. Basically you are just setting up a new tethered network. To do it wirelessly you would have to set it to be a bridge or AP and it wont work unless the main router is the same b...

Re: HyperX Savage EXO SSD External Portable Drive Review

I never understood why companies do things like this.....release a product that is inferior at a higher price point in an established market. If they made it specifically for console gamers and marketed that way it would have been in a marketplace that might have commanded a higher price point as a ...

Re: What do you think

I like it. Still a few little things I notice like there is only 1 laptop with 1060 6gb and 15.6" and the little blurb in orange says - No significant advantage and some important drawbacks compared to the direct competition but there is no direct competition since it only pulled up 1 :) Would ...

Re: ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 2080 OC Video Card Review

RTX cards are amazing, there is no doubt but the are also super expensive. If PS5 or Xbox Two (whatever they call them) have 4k native at 60fps I think even more people will jump ship to the consoles as an entire console can be bought for cheaper than one of these video cards and you can even throw ...

So, you think the FPS box should be opened right away?


I do, but that is just my opinion. It is your site :)

Re: What do you think

Only thing I can see that I do not care for is how the FPS block needs to be clicked to open it up. It looks weird with the 0% for the one video card (it is the base so 0% is accurate) without having the FPS open.

That is just my opinion though :)
