    ASUS PRIME X299 DELUXE II Motherboard Review @ [H]

    So if I were to grab 2 M.2 SSD's and RAID0 them using this board, would both go in the M.2 slots that lay flat, or would I need to have one sticking out of the 3rd m.2 connector by the 24 pin power connector? For the prices on the Samsung 970 Evo's, I'm seeing it's only $10 more to get 2x 500GB...

    voice low, action high

    Where is your source coming from? Netflix? Plex? I am having this issue with Plex right now. It is completely failing to correctly convert 5.1 source audio to stereo for my Chromecast.

    It's BIG and WHITE and a Kilowatt - CORSAIR and HARDOCP PUT IT IN FOR FREE

    I hope this means overclocking that headset. Somehow. Someway. This should be a thing. "I can walk all the way out to the mailbox and they stay connected!!" YEEESSSSSSSSS.

    74% of Netflix Subscribers Would Rather Cancel Than See Ads

    As long as they continue to offer a No-Ad tier that isn't a huge price hike, I don't see the problem. It makes sense that a monthly subscription would go up at some points because of inflation etc. I'd be fine coughing up $2 more a month for a guarantee I wont see any Ads (excluding the...

    State Department Temporarily Halting Parts Of Email System

    So Hillary's private server kept her emails out of the hands of Russia? Maybe all state department employees should use private email...

    SilverStone Olympia 1000W Power Supply 7 Year Redux @ [H]

    This article is perfectly timed for me personally. My ~8 year old PSU crapped out on me this weekend and it took quite a bit of troubleshooting to narrow it down to the PSU. Fortunately I was able to poach my wife's old rig of it's power supply and my machine is back up and running, but it's...

    343 Industries Explains 20GB Day One Patch

    I'm actually a little surprised at the amount of ignorant piling-on in this thread. Things around here are usually wrapped up in a lot more logic than this. The servers for this 20GB download on day 1 will be just fine. It's coming out of the Xbox Live servers, not some new games servers that...

    Tt BlacX Urban Wi-Fi Edition HDD Docking Station

    Yup! That's definitely me. The name doesn't get used elsewhere very often since it's kinda stupid ;) Game Connection by chance?

    Tt BlacX Urban Wi-Fi Edition HDD Docking Station

    Can someone explain any legitimate uses for such a device? I'd hate to try to use something like this in my typical work meetings or at home. We use laptops with projectors at work, and I have a NAS at home. Is this just for getting it done on the cheap or something? Maybe the video simply...

    Google Buys Nest For $3.2B

    I looked into getting a Nest as a replacement for our existing thermostat, but after reading a large number of reviews slamming the things, I backed away.. far far away. They apparently do not have a whole lot of tolerance built into them for the kind of power lines used in typical houses and...

    Apple Patents Facial Recognition As Your Password

    I'm curious if they'll ever add a sensor to smartphones that can correctly account for depth like one of the senors in the Kinect. That'd make these things a LOT harder to trick.

    ASUS Maximus VI Extreme LGA 1150 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Read the review and decided I might start thinking about doing an upgrade soon. Decided to run that Bioshock Infinite benchmark (I'm assuming this is the one that comes with the game) on my PC, which is getting old. 150 average FPS [MachineInfo] OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 GraphicsVendor...

    Twitter Is Hiding Two Years Of Financial Data

    It's amazing that so much money goes into a company that looks like it could have been coded by a few people in a kitchen. I understand it takes a lot of people hours to run servers and support and all that, but come on...

    Teen Hacker Making $50k A Month Arrested

    "The arrest operation shut down the power to the entire neighbourhood to prevent the deletion of sensitive data." That's a pretty smart tactic to use. I got a good chuckle. Even if the kid had UPC's setup, it is at least worth taking a shot at it on the chance he didn't. I'm imagining a room...

    The 12 Best Mods For PC Games

    The one Mod I I've spent the most time with. I'm a little shocked to see someone mention it! That oil rig map.... so fun.
