You sound like a chinese lol? With the father thing going on here.

what310's Completed Build: THE BLACK BOX

AddisonKwong 1 point 30 months ago

That's because mac OS doesn't support the pascal lineup of GPUs and right now, the 980ti is cheaper that the 1070, while performing slightly faster that the 1070.

"First build"

suddenly you realize his first build costs more than all the builds you have ever built

stustison's Completed Build: Titan fun!

AddisonKwong 1 point 30 months ago

If this is for gaming purely I suggest you get 8 more Titan Xs and 2 more CPUs, Maybe another 500GBs of RAM and 10 more m.2 SSDs

Gee what do you with this thing XD? I would be surprised if u said it wasn't a gift for satan.

Forum Topic "Headfi trustworthy or total BS?"

AddisonKwong submitter 1 point 31 months ago

There could be two reasons that happened: first, you might have gotten used to the headphones and accepted them, second, breaking in the drivers really help the sound improve. However blind tests and objective measures show little to no change in sound signature. To this I can only say it could be true, and similarly it couldn't . We should take this with a grain of salt and dont expect it to change 10 dollar headphones into sennheiser to hd 800s

Forum Topic "Headfi trustworthy or total BS?"

AddisonKwong submitter 0 points 31 months ago

Objective tests have shown no significant change in sound signature, and the only way to verify this is by quantified blind testing. Ithink someone did these blind tests and showed shocking results online.The participants either couldn't tell the difference between used and new headphones, and dac-amps that cost 1000x more in price, or got the answer completely wrong.

Forum Topic "Headfi trustworthy or total BS?"

AddisonKwong submitter 1 point 31 months ago

I actually stumbled across a video on youtube talking about NwAvGuy, the one guy who invented the 02 and odac. He tried persuading people out of buying extremely large and expensive amps/dacs, and said that those amps/dacs may not offer a better experience for the user, and went on rambling on several audio websites, but ultimately got banned on Headfi. He made a point which I agreed with: how good an audio product is can only be tested by quantified blind testing. He also tried to debunk several audio myths such as burning-in with precise measurements. So it's really a mixed bag of opinions for me and the general consensus is, the 02 and odac is very good for its price and can sometimes be better than a much more expensive amp-dac.

Forum Topic "Headfi trustworthy or total BS?"

AddisonKwong submitter 1 point 31 months ago

Thank you so much for the link, I kinda get what it means, what the headphones may sound like, but as with any product that has objective reviews, I ought to try them out myselves, after all, everyone hears differently right?

NickDVL's Completed Build: Snow White

AddisonKwong 1 point 31 months ago

Lol what the heck is that I don't even know XD, anyways welcome back to the PC Master Race,I'm sure you had fun building that dang nice PC :)

AddisonKwong 2 points 31 months ago

20 years?! Wow! I wasn't even born then lol.

lsGalaxy's Completed Build: Simply White

AddisonKwong 1 point 31 months ago

1070 is fairly reasonable for its price IMO, still has 8GB of VRAM though

toggLesss's Completed Build: Project Canyon rev.2

I'm surprised she hasn't killed u already XD

With that kind of money I wonder what your next upgrade is going to be?

Hunter1226's Completed Build: Beast

AddisonKwong 2 points 32 months ago

Lower temps, larger heat dissipation area (fans can spin slower for less noise but same temps.)

Hunter1226's Completed Build: Beast

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

You need a CPU Cooler as long as u hv a CPU...

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

Gd luck sir, it all comes down to the silicone lottery.

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

100 mHz for core and 480 for mem. isn't bad at all, as most cards I've seen online tend to push way past their advertised speeds, leaving less headroom for overclocking.

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

2.1 is like a magical unicorn, though I have seen it happen, cherry-picked GPUs might be able to let us touch that mark easier without going into custom bioses and stuff, here's an example. https://youtu.be/l1YOJOxCDIk?t=6m54s

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

I would overclock the GPUs because I can, it's free performance, and I enjoy the process of overclocking. One tip, to see check how much more clock speed you are getting out of your card, don't compare the overclocked speeds with the boost and base clock, the offset mHz (e.g.+200mHz) IS the amount of speed you are getting more out of the card, as each card performs differently, even when they are from the same brand.

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

Dang I hope you do so cus I wanna see another awesome build XD

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

Also, you're not getting a bump from 1.7 to 2.06, 1.7 is likely the base clock, and with GPU Boost 3.0, it's likely that the card may have already overclocked itself far past the advertised base and boost clocks, so in reality, you could be only adding 2-3 hundred mHz

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

That's very reasonable, overclocking GPUs don't give a ton of performance gains.

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 1 point 32 months ago

What do you mean by "I don't think it worked properly"? Maybe I could help u out? :D

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 2 points 32 months ago

Aww... what a bummer... I was jk lol, hope you put them to good use. One day I will be able to buy those ludicrously priced components and scratch the itch that needs to be scratched, one day...

ActionSam's Completed Build: Overclocked College Build

AddisonKwong 2 points 32 months ago

Did you really have to be this mean lol

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 2 points 32 months ago

Tbh this build is really overkill for gaming, but why not build it if you can afford to right? IMO u should overclock your GPU first with official software such as MSI afterburner, as those will never let you fry your card even if you push the sliders to the max. I myself push the voltage, power and temp. limit to the max and try gradually taking the core and memory clock up. For CPU overclocking, frying your chip could be a real risk if you did that improperly, so I suggest you go to youtube and watch overclocking guides. The steps to overclocking your CPU is similar to those of the GPU, but you should be more careful, especially with temps and voltage.

xAxTragicxEndx's Completed Build: Project Overkill

AddisonKwong 5 points 32 months ago

Umm when u uh... swap out those components could u uh... coughs send them over my way?
