    Moderna Coronavirus vaccine sees positive results in phase one trial

    I've treated 1000 people for COVID with urine and it worked. Why don't you believe me? 350 people cured with 100% success rate deserves a Nobel prize in medicine. I was talking about the video of a press conference of people in white coats on the steps of supreme court paid by Tea Party...

    Should I return it ?

    That is how they come from ASUS. No seals on the box, no seals on the anti-static bag. You can't damage AM4 socket by touching it. There's no protective cover over the socket because the pins are on the CPU.

    Vendors price difference on the Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero

    If you do not care about PCIe4.0 SSD and do not have definite plan to upgrade to next Ryzen CPU while keeping the same M/B, then get a good (and cheap) B450 board. Otherwise get a decent X570 board at MC with combo discount. I got Asus Prime X570-Pro for like 180 bucks last August at MC and...

    Vendors price difference on the Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero

    Would I be better off with a AVR ?

    It all depends on what do you actually want to get out of this. I used to have Promedia 4.1 set a long time ago, i've reused the speakers when i got an analog av receiver, but eventually I've replaced them with better ones since promedia speakers had weird impedance and wimpy wires.

    Motherboard BIOS update - Just grab the latest?

    Generally, the BIOS files always match the size of the flash memory chip (8/16/32MB), since the update does a full overwrite even if the actual BIOS size could be less that that. For Ryzen 3000 support on motherboards with limited flash size (16MB) some tables for older CPU support / graphical...

    Need help venturing into the audio-side of gaming

    Well, I've been a dummy all this time. Apparenly after upgrade from Win8.1 to Win10 and with somewhat recent AMD drivers the HDMI emulator is not even needed. Win10 sees the receiver just fine, but still have to combine the receiver and the 2nd monitor so there's no empty dead space on the...

    best way to setup 5.1 computer audio in 2020? HDMI without needing a fake display?

    HDMI emulator plug + display manager software that keeps everything on your primary monitor only? I use a plug in the receiver's out and just duplicate the fake monitor with my real 2nd monitor.
