Re: What is the best power supply?

Depends what you need it for - what wattage? full, semi or no modular?

Seasonic, Antec, Corsair are a few to look at.

If you are looking for a PSU for dirt cheap then you will probably never get the level of performance or have it last very long compared to a good brand name one.

Re: My Mouse moves too slowly

Try changing batteries. Yes, just try. Make sure the touchpad is disabled. Had one that the mouse did not work for anything until I manually disabled the touchpad. No idea why. I think that was an Acer. Uninstall and reinstall the mouse drivers. Uninstall - turn off - unplug mouse from computer - tu...

Re: Too early for wirelessAX router?

When do you expect AX to become the norm, so to speak? Or at least for it to have a reason to exist for more than just the hard core enthusiasts. I am guessing the earliest will be when the next gen consoles come out, likely winter 2020 (i am guessing from articles I read). If the Xbox is going tot...

Re: Intel Optane Memory H10 Review

Got my geek juices flowing this morning. Sounded better in my head. If this can hit the DIY market and keep the cost from becoming absurd, this would be an awesome addition. I wonder if you could use multiple drives.....maybe to have multi-boot options with each having their own memory and drive.......

Re: WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD with EKWB Heatsink Review

Awesome! Now if they would incorporate a way to hook it up to a custom water loop it would be just plain badass :supz:

Although i don't have a custom water loop..... #-o

Re: Additional Radiator To My Current Setup

Hmmm..I am no water expert! Can you easily refill the loop? be nice if you could use a gallon jug of distilled water as your reservoir and run the return loop to another empty gallon jug so you could pump water straight through the entire system without taking it apart. Just have to be careful to no...

Re: Additional Radiator To My Current Setup

well it turns out not so good after all. I cleaned the new rad out with water and vinegar then distilled water and hardly any particles and that's came out so all good to use. then today well in fact 10 mins ago as I turned my pc on I saw very dark coolant. almost brown and suspected it maybe rust?...

Re: Additional Radiator To My Current Setup

I was thinking of separate loops for the cpu and gpu but would need an additional pump and res which is not cost effective. As for the rad between gpu and cpu, that is not possible for me without re-routing all my tubing as my system is built inside a desk. However today a friend of mine told me he...

Re: Too early for wirelessAX router?

New tech is awesome, until you have nothing that supports it in your house ;) I see absolutely no reason to go with AX right now unless you are planning to upgrade a bunch of stuff to use it within a short period of time. It looks promising but it will do nothing to help you on AC or N compared to a...

Re: Additional Radiator To My Current Setup

Honestly, I do not see a problem with your temps now at full load!

What if you put the 2nd rad in between the cpu and gpu?

Which goes back to what camaro said, why not just separate them totally?

Re: Which one is a better gaming CPU, AMD or Intel?

if these are your only choice then i'd get the i3 7100. it's newer, higher stock clock speed and has hyper threading. There ya go - I would also say if you are building it yourself then keep an eye out for deals on i5 cpu's also. You may find some deals that make it really close to i3 prices! If yo...

Dunno what FF is but make sure your video card is not overheating. Looks like the same screen I had when I had problems with my old 660gtx (or 560 dunno one of them) Uninstall and reinstall video drivers. Does it lock up the computer? My monitor goes to sleep and once in a while comes up with just a...
