    10900F on MSI B560 Torpedo

    Ok ty for the explanations and taking a look at it. I don't know anything about VRM or phases, so I appreciate the insight from people more experienced. Hey thanks for the feedback. I can always tack on a different cpu cooler then if that one is not strong enough. It's quite dated anyways and...

    10900F on MSI B560 Torpedo

    https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MAG-B560-TORPEDO This B560 Torpedo motherboard is available locally at Memory Express for a great price. I am wondering if it has sufficient power limit support, or can remove PL all together and run without a limit, while having a good enough heatsink to cool a...

    Are these mobo audio connectors the same, just flipped?

    I assume the mobo configuration is just flipped, but want to make sure before plugging in. Pin 8 appears to be the "no pin" (I have a Corsair Air 540 case.)

    Confused on which motherboard to buy. B550 AORUS PRO or X570 AORUS ELITE?

    I will be purchasing a Ryzen 5600X (6c/12t) when they come out next month, and am very confused on which motherboard to buy, the B550 Aorus Pro or the X570 Aorus Elite . I will be running a single 1TB Adata SX8200 Pro PCIe Gen3 x4 (3500 read, 3000 write) and have no intention of ever buying a...

One team consists of 3 pro moba/sc2 players and is literally shredding everyone else actually haha. The best part of HotS is the fast paced games and action. No...

    Looking to upgrade really need some good suggestions!!!

    Yeah definitely a new SSD. The Crucial MX100 512GB is the best bang for your buck drive available I believe.

    ASUS GTX 970 STRIX OC Review Comment Thread

    I have zero coil whine with my Strix 970. None at all. With the EVGA 970 I initially ordered, it sounded like a subway car screetching to a halt every time I would load a game, and a bit even idle on desktop. Zero problems with the Strix though. Literally not 1 thing I could say bad about my...

    What SSD to switch to?

    Crucial MX100 512GB is on for $219 @ DirectCanada at the moment. With almost all of the new games being 20-30+GB, I feel like 240/256GB drives are almost not worth buying if you do a lot of gaming. I don't recommend the 256GB version of the MX100 though due to way slower speeds. There are a lot...

    ASUS GTX 970 STRIX OC Review Comment Thread

    Finally got 1 last Monday, and must say I am more then impressed with everything about the card. The packaging was amazing, the build quality of the card is super solid and weighs about another half more then the EVGA one I rma'd due to some defects. The sound is non existent, even when the fans...

    ASUS GTX 970 STRIX OC Review Comment Thread

    I had an EVGA GTX 970 SC ACX that was defective so I will be jumping on the Strix now. Any idea when the major etailers will have these back in stock? (Oct 27 today) NCIX, Newegg and Mem Exp all out of stock still. :(

    EVGA GTX 970 SC Flickering and Black screen issues

    Just posting back here. Apparently it actually WAS EVGA Precision X16 causing the problem. I uninstalled it, rebooted and played games for 8 hours last night without an issue. If anyone else has some random problem with their 900 series, and you have that program installed, try uninstalling it!

    EVGA GTX 970 SC Flickering and Black screen issues

    Oh yup already tried setting the fan speed manually up to 80% even and it did nada. However, some user on the EVGA site recommended I get ride of EVGA Precision X16 if I was using it, which I was. So I uninstalled it, and just played BF3 campaign for 1 hour without a problem. Before I...
