RIP AMD in EU.
Also a leaked polish review showed it being slower than an OC'ed 970.

I don't think I've ever seen so many different scores for leaked benchmarks. Either way I think i'll look at getting a better monitor first.

This polish review seems really retarded anyway. Who compare heavily OC'ed card against a stock reference card?

It's about as stupid as comparing rx480 cf to a gtx1080.

Read some articles about a picture of a GTX1060 getting leaked the day before the RX480 is supposed to go on sale. The comment sections be looking like salt mines.

OK guys, need help and math or something. I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not that phanteks cooler will fit in the be quiet case. the case has a max 170mm cooler height and the the cooler is 160mm w/o fans and is 171 w/ fans but i can probably move the fan down more to not interfere. however if i move the fans down it may or may not interfere with my ram which has a clearance of 40mm.... i see this video and think im fine www.youtube.com/watch?v=mR1kmhirI7Y&feature=youtu.be&t=9m43s . but then i see these pictures and think im screwed www.vortez.net/articles_pages/phanteks_ph_tc14pe_cpu_cooler_review,7.html

what are your guys thoughts?

Couldn't you just use your kraken x61, not have to worry about clearance, and save $80.

the case doesnt allow mounting for the radiator, it advertises having 280mm radiator support, however it can fit the radiator, there is no room for fans on the radiator anywhere. rip.

nzxt phantom right? I thought the reason they put that weird top cover on was to have room for fans.

Yeah. You can do this with most cases though, just the fans stick out like sore thumbs.

the problem with this case is that my fans were too high profile to put on the top cover when i tried that too.

What case do you have? What fans are you trying to use if they're not the standard 25mm?

the be quiet! base 500 silver window model. i tried above and below and clearance just isnt there. im tempted to just get the dark rock pro 3 for my cpu cooler but ram clearance becomes the issue again.

Wow shit that's a weird top. If oyu're not that attached to the case though you could grab a different one for about the same as a cpu cooler and keep using your kraken x61

Well that's the thing i was willing to switch coolers for the case. all for shallow reasons of course. and temporarily get by with the aio till i ordered the air cooler. So now im figuring out the clearance for the phanteks or the DRP3

That's bad as the 240mm rad support my case has.
Fans mounted inside and radiator is mounted on top of the case, with tubes fed through the rear of the case. this of course makes using an 240mm aio impossible without removing the tubes.
I eventually plan on modding the front side of the case to accept a 240mm rad internally.

so can anyone here tell me how to disable automatic restart upgrades for win10? theirs an option for select a restart time myself but its always grayed out, and the reason i can never update it is because it freezes on restart everytime and never completes its update.

Hey guys, can anyone recommend a website where I can convert a PDF file into a Powerpoint 2013 presentation? I found a few on google, but after downloading a virus from trying to convert something before I've become a bit paranoid about using websites I don't know. Much appreciated, have a cute cat GIF

My loop is clean, sealed, my temperatures are back to being below 30ºC, and my distilled water is actually treated with biocide this time around.
It feels good.

A week to be confident that the loop is sealed, bled, and leak-proof*, yes. It only took a good chunk of a day to tear it apart, clean it, upgrade it, and re-assemble it.

So from what i understand, with directx 12, i'll be able to build a high end system with a good GPU, and throw in my older GPU in SLI and they'll both be used? am i understanding this correctly?

If they both support DX12, yes, to a limited extent. But you will be limited by your older card's performance. Just as a simple way of explaining, say that (in numbers) your new graphics card is "5000" powerful, and your old one is "2000" powerful, you're theoretically going to max out at about 4000 in total performance, because the more powerful card can't outweigh the weaker card. Or maybe better explained this way, if you pair a GTX 970 with a GTX 950, you'll pretty much get the rough / theoretical performance of two 950's.

No, unfortunately you can't cross the vendor boundary because different drivers, methods of inter-chip communication, and algorithms. Nvidia with Nvidia, AMD with AMD.

>>#50407, Not normally, but in DX12 (at least Ashes of The Singularity) you can combine AMD and Nvidia cards. Although I'm not sure of the exact limitations, you're still going to be bottlenecked by the weaker card.

Can someone recommend me a good mechanical keyboard?

There's a lot of good ones out there and unlike a traditional membrane keyboard, mechanicals have different siwtches (Usually: Cherry MX red, brown, blue and brown.)
To know which one is for you I'd watch this
www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXCKHoiNu1o
and maybe even try a sampler kit
www.amazon.com/Max-Keyboard-Keycap-Cherry-Sampler/

You probably won't be switching to a different one anytime soon so you might as well make sure it fits you well with how loud it is, how clicky it is, and how it feels to press it as well as the feedback you get.
And if you even like mechanicals at all.
As for straight up answering your question:

Some Expencive recomendations:

Corsair Gaming K70 - You need to login to view this link
Razer BlackWidow Chroma - You need to login to view this link
Keep in mind razer make their own unique switches that are a bit more clickier but they're a good brand so I'm sure it'll feel just fine.
CM Storm QuickFire Ultimate - You need to login to view this link

If you're on more of a budged or think you just want a good keyboard and feel you might not quite /Need/ a super fancy mechanical one - there are enough proper keyboards out there that will do just fine for, what I assume is, gaming.

Here are some cheaper alternative in case you want any:

(Personal Favorite)Cooler Master Devastator 2 - You need to login to view this link
It isn't just a membrain keyboard, it's a mix between mechanical and membrain. - mem-chanical. Tactile feedback while being cheaper. Also comes with a nice mouse that you can safely overclock to 500-1000hz (Runing it literally tight now).

SADES K10 - You need to login to view this link
Not a big fan of it's looks but it's a good fully mechanical keyboard non-the-less - uses Blue Switches

There are acouple of good cheap non mechanical keyboards and despite not being what you asked for - I'll just post them to round the question out.

Hope this helps~

I would either wait until Zen (Socket AM4) comes out, because FM2 is ancient. Otherwise get a Haswell (LGA1150) or Skylake (LGA1151).

And no, those two don't go together. Your motherboard has the FM2 socket while the FX-8350 is AM3+

curious why intel? i think i have an amd chipset. would that still be compatible with the intel processor?

No, but your motherboard and socket are so old that it's not really worth upgrading the CPU alone. You'll just be going from something very old to something slightly less old.

So I'd reccomend getting a new motherboard to begin with.

No it wouldn't. He's suggesting you get a new processor and motherboard.

And because amd is about to move onto a new architecture, it's probably better to go with intel if you want to buy right now.
