Re: New Chassis - Phantom, Lanboy Air or HAF 932

NZXT Phantom for its looks, or the HAF 932 for its performance which is also more expensive. Lanboy air would gather too much dust IMO

I normally press the right handed thumb mouse buttons with my ring finger but there's some mouse buttons that I can't reach comfortably. Iv had a look at the Roccat Kone+ and I think I'll be able to reach the buttons comfortably

New mouse and keyboard

Howzit guys, after the christmas season I plan on getting myself a new mouse and keyboard. My current peripherals don't suit my rig, as its REALLY old school. So I originally always wanted a Razor Lycosa keyboard and the NZXT Avatar mouse which will suit my case perfectly. However Evetech doesn't ev...

Re: Intel K-series overclocking

You mainly adjust the multiplier, once you've hit your maximum then you start on your base clock. I only use my base clock in my 4.9ghz profile. The multi is x48 but I compensate with the base clock, it keeps my temps in check and doesn't demand such a high step up in voltage. And Starbound, I've he...

Red is too dull:) I wouldn't change my case for anything, maybe a CM Cosmos:) The only things that I don't like on the case is plastic covers, I'd like some laser cute Aluminium covers made if I had money. And the fact that it doesn't have a side window. BUT NZXT have just released an optional windo...

I can't justify spending that much on an SSD. Games and apps will load faster, that's about it... Ok well I'd get an OCZ SSD if I had to get one so I'm looking at quite a big price

OMG those temps are high! That at least shows me how the stock cooler performs. My cpu reaches those temps at 5Ghz! But now does the pc freeze in the same way it does in game?

RRF when I had power issues my pc would spontaneously reboot. I wasnt aware that the pc hangs under high current load. Oh and Sabs when you use Prime please watch your temps closely! This app stresses your cpu to the max, if your temps reach past 80c stop the test. 90c is the limit. And with regards...

Re: Entire new Rig Upgrade.. advice and comments please :D

Dude that PSU is soooo expensive! I think1000W is a bit overkill even for crossfire, you would get away with a 750-850. You could easily save a few hundred bucks on the PSU. Other than that, the rig looks solid. 2500K is ideal for gaming but if you can get the 2600K at a good price then why not

CPU, and the temps aren't the problem, but try reseating your cooler to lower your temps. Its not healthy:) What's your idle temps?

Re: computer freezes while in gameplay

Those CPU temps are a bit high for gaming. Is it overclocked at all? But I don't think that temps are the problem here. Sounds to me like your PSU is taking strain or its failing, or the constant key pressing tone sounds like software, eg drivers, hanging app
