    Update on my health

    @robfosters thread revival but just read all 320 posts expecting to see some updates and no updates since this time last year. How have you been the last year? Is your prognosis still unchanged? Even if I see no response I wish you all the best and a merry Christmas.

    Samsung QVO for game drive

    Do you mean games like cyberpunk that seem to have massive 7 or 8gb non compressed files?

    Samsung QVO for game drive

    Yes it wouldn't be used for anything other than games or content I wouldn't miss if things went wrong. I use cloud storage and disc based media if I want a longer term storage solution. Internet it not great where I am so makes sense to keep my games on a drive permanently. I had been doing data...

    Samsung QVO for game drive

    Really want some more game storage what are your thoughts on the QVO series for this namely the 4tb version. I know the TBW is low but once my games are on they will pretty much sit there untouched and just be played. I've got a samsung 970 500gb nvme for OS a 1tb 860evo for games and a 4tb...

    Can someone help me better understand GPU power usage

    So being a little energy conscious if I'm playing a game and it's running a stupid amount of frames per second does this relate directly to power use? Would say enabling vsync dropping a game from 144 fps to 60Fps lower power usage or would I need to manually adjust the core clocks and voltage...

    No an i5 6700 that rig works fine It's my 5820k rig with 1080ti that's having issues. The i5 rig and 290x plays flawlessly. My 5820k and 1080ti is a stutter fest and unplayable

    Poor fortnite performance

    Nothing noteworthy and I've tried disabling unnecessary stuff. It's literally only that game. Everything else runs butter smooth. I'm playing apex every day almost and no issues there at all. This stutter thing happens even on minimum settings so can't figure out what's causing it.

    6700 non K vs 5820k

    I know it can reach 4.4Ghz without much fuss and with 2 extra cores I suppose your right. It makes sense to keep the 5820k long term.

    Pumps not pumping around custom loop

    first double check the pumps are working, you should hear them regardless if the loop is flowing or not, concerning for me is opening the res should not allow the water to just explode out, that to me would suggest a large air blockage causing a return pressure on the pump. when you filled the...

    6700 non K vs 5820k

    Maybe I should say I'm moving on to more than likely a 10850k or equivalent AMD (not sure yet) I'm not taking the 6700. So the kids have the pick of 6700 or 5820k

    Hard tube fittings recommendations

    Feel like banging my head on a wall. Ordered some EK acrylic 12/16 and guess what the bloody barrow locking collar doesn't even fit over the tube as the tube appears to be 0.3mm bigger than the EK Petg. Thus the EK fitting now fits rock solid but the barrow fitting does not fit at all :cry...

    Hard tube fittings recommendations

    yeah fitting correctly i think it is just a sizing issue as the ek fitting grips a lot firmer even though it only has a single o ring in the barrel then the locking o ring. Think i'm going down the acrylic route as my water temp is often 40 degrees and been reading PETG isn't the best choice for...
