  1. Aluminum replied to the thread Let's talk about VPN's for a moment.

    Kinda late to the party, should have started using one in 2015 when every major US ISP was part of the deep packet inspection agreement with the copyright stasi. If you think they weren't already doing similar even before that, I have a bridge...

    Unless I hear screeching from the drive, or dead silence, I'm going to suspect cables and ports first on any drive not showing up in the OS. One of those having experience things.

  3. Aluminum liked Xinmosni's post in the thread Second Western Digital NAS RED 8TB drive to fail on me.

    People and their over-rating of PSU requirements, never changes. Go for quality of component first, features/price second, excessive wattage third. Desktop socket and single card? A premium seasonic, superflower, etc 600ish platform won't even...

  6. Aluminum replied to the thread Sandy Bridge-E vs Ryzen.

  8. Aluminum replied to the thread 7700k temps with Noctua NH-D15.

    Sounds like a prime candidate for delid and refix. I get the overall vibe across the net that kaby lake was put together even worse than skylake on average. A cooler built to the proper 115x mechanical retention limits cannot correct intel's...

  9. Aluminum replied to the thread Sandy Bridge-E vs Ryzen.

    You can build a complete ryzen swap including ram for the thousand fucking dollars a 1680v2 goes for. 1700x, board, ram and even adding a big fat heatsink all cost less, I know because I picked them all up already 2 weeks ago ;) I love my sweet...
