Re: Best low profile video cards available (March 2017)

Interesting! I wonder if they share an OEM with someone who might sell a similar model in western markets. Might be worth keeping an eye on aliexpress, taobao, etc to see what prices on those are like and if anyone will ship to other regions. Although I couldn't find any "SL geforce" cards...

Re: Corsair's RM1000i Special Edition PSU

Yeah, it was partly the amount of space available behind the panel there, I didn't want to try and cram too much stuff in there in case it made the back panel too tight.

Re: Corsair's RM1000i Special Edition PSU

Yeah I was really puzzled by that too! On the other end it all merges down to the standard 24-pin connector you'd expect, so couldn't figure out why it splits the connector that way on the end of the power supply. The 4-pin or 8-pin aux12v that goes near the CPU socket comes out of the 2x4pin plugs ...

Now, Corsair says the Carbide 88R can't repel firepower of this magnitude, and I think technically that's true: http://i.imgur.com/Ce0ZwEo.jpg With the 3.5" drive cage in place there's very little room between it and the power supply. You could probably do some creative cable routing through th...

It's very low profile and very quiet. But I was seeing numbers WAY off base from what reviews had shown. Couldn't figu...

Re: 1080Ti: Founders Edition or Wait?

The blower style heatsink isn't bad if you've got a small case - it will push a lot of heat right out of it. But it's also configured so the card will basically run quietly and maintain ~ 80C all the time when in use. That's not bad, but you'll probably see higher clock speed, lower temps and still ...

I have a 1070 in a system at home, I'll run Valley on it tonight when I get a chance so you can compare. But I'd agree with others - artifacts and bsods indicate a hardware issue. It could be a failing part, a power supply unable to keep up, a heat issue, or any combination of the three.
