    Hi everyone, This is my first post here, but I have been reading the forum for a long time.

    High 7700K Temps with Corsair Hydro H80i and Hyper 212

    Hi All! I did a new build about a month ago and I have noticed some unusually high temperatures with my 7700K. I originally had a Hyper 212 cooler on my build, but after seeing the temps I decided that maybe it wasn't cutting it so I switched to a Corsair Hydro H80i v2. However the temps are...

    7700k + CM 212 + Prime95 = 90C :(

    Ryzen-A Fail for Gamers?

    Many have expressed amazement on just how AMD was able to catch up to Intel with Ryzen, especially with the 1800X, in the computing and productivity sectors. However, from a purely gamer's perspective, it is almost impossible to miss the fact that 1800X trails Intel's 7700K slightly to...

    My i7 7700k Has Arrived - Insights, Benchies & Overclocks Inside (Now With Delid!)

    2nd January - 5.1Ghz Prime Stable with AVX multiplier offset Interesting, so the new BIOS actually allows a negative multiplier offset for AVX instructions which has allowed me to overclock to 5.1Ghz and auto drop down to 5Ghz when avx instructions are executed. Not sure if this is a new...
