    Discussion 12700k CPU+Gigabyte Z690i+3070 HATE PCIE Riser Cables

    Can't switch to gen 3 in BIOS (at least I couldn't find the option to switch in the BIOS after a lot of looking). I then purchased a linkup gen 4 riser and my system crashed, just not as often, as when I was running the gen 3 cable. Yeah, the Gen 3 cable was not faulty as my old build...

    Discussion 12700k CPU+Gigabyte Z690i+3070 HATE PCIE Riser Cables

    Just wanted throw out this PSA that the combo listed in the subject line simply doesn't work with a PCIE riser. Spent way too many hours trying to figure it out and my system is 100% stable after removing the PCIE riser. My system is now just sitting outside of case till my Sliger 610 arrives. I...

    I just pledged on the Kickstarter campaign and really looking forward to this KB. I've been wanting to clean up my desktop and going to a wireless semi-compact KB like this should get me one step closer.

    Cooling Quick hands on the Cryorig Cu C7

    A couple of comments/questions: - Great to see the C7 CU finally pop up. I thought it was going to be vaporware. And, can't wait till there are some good side-by-side comparisons with the LP53. - Also anyone know where we can buy this graphene paint? I'd be completely OK with painting my LP53...

    News Steam Machines Removed from Steam Storefront

    I'd like to think that all of the sweet SFF cases by NCase, Dan Case, et. al. had something to do with this. ;-)

    This cooler looks somewhat promising while we wait for @dondan 's CPU cooler. Put a 92mm slim Noctua on it and it should be good to go.

    Worth the upgrade to 8700k from 4770k for 1440p gaming @ 165Hz?

    Agreed. A little disappointed at temps of this CPU. I'm getting the new Dan Case that has 92mm AiO capabilities, but I'm not a fan of AiOs. Maybe someone else will go first on putting an 8700k in a Dan Case A4 and see how it performs temps wise. Or, better yet, maybe @dondan 's new LP CPU...

    Worth the upgrade to 8700k from 4770k for 1440p gaming @ 165Hz?

    Thanks for the valuable feedback, videos, and input, everyone! The wife's not going to be happy either way. lol Currently, I'm running a GTX 970, but regardless of upgrading the whole system, or just the GPU, I'd be looking at the GTX 1080 or waiting till Volta's equivalent of the 1080 to make...

    Worth the upgrade to 8700k from 4770k for 1440p gaming @ 165Hz?

    Hi Everyone, My current system is getting old, but I was wondering if I upgraded to 8700k from 4770k if I would notice that much of a difference in gaming performance? I game at 1440p at 60Hz but I'll be purchasing a g-sync 1440p 165Hz monitor soon. Would it be worth it to upgrade my whole...
