    Shopping for new PSU

    Recently upgraded my system and for some reason I am now getting some annoying coil whine coming from my PSU. Played around with the C-States to see if that would make it go away and it doesn't. My PSU is an old Corsair HX1000 that I have been using since 2009. I am now looking into getting a...

    Black Friday 2017 - What are you hoping for?

    As per title, what deals are you hoping for this year? Last year was pretty crappy, same for Cyber Monday which wasn't all that great if I remember correctly. I think this year with the timing behind the release cycle of some products we *may* be in a good position to see some good deals...

    16GB not enough anymore?

    So I've always had page file disabled and never had any problems with my 16GB of DDR4 (running at 3000Mhz). That just changed with Deus Ex - Mankind Divided it seems. Before playing Mankind Divided, I played Rise of the Tomb Raider (in DX12) and total system RAM usage was spiking at around...

    Sound Blaster Z vs Asus Strix Soar

    So after about a year of using the Supreme FX (rebranded Realtek ACL1150) on my Maximus VIII Hero and being fairly satisfied with it, I am now running into all kind of audio issues in games. It has been working fine until I formatted my PC last week so I am guessing there is something wrong with...

    Upcoming M.2 NVMe drives?

    Does anyone know if anything else is about to hit the market at the consumer level? Feels like Samsung is riding the wave all alone at the moment and I'd be curious to know if more competition is upcoming in that segment?

    I recently reorganized my desk at home and now need a longer display port cable since the one provided with my screen is too short for my new setup. I was going through Newegg to order a longer one but I am now hesitating after reading some user reviews. I'm trying to understand the 19 pin vs...

    Whine from psu when pc idling

    I have a Corsair HX1000 PSU that I've been using for a while now (bought it back in 2010) and it started making a frickin annoying whine when my pc is at idle. The whine goes away as soon as my pc is under load though. For example, when gaming, it's not making any noise at all, but as soon as I...
