    Netflix Password Sharing Crackdown

    It's a deal if they have enough things you like on it, but I find I personally don't enjoy enough of their media to justify the cost, and most of my content comes by other means truthfully. That last part makes my household a lose lose for what they're aiming at since I have no need of having it...

    Who is looking to upgrade to Zen2

    Feel like I'll be on the same boat but replacing the 2080 with an AMD card and a bit delayed timeline wise. It's going to replace a Xeon 1270 and a 970 that were both second hand from a friend, so anything in the new line of cpus will be a nice upgrade. This system will probably make it's way to...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    And many modern cases do as well. But you tried to say that you wanted to use the space. So water cool the CPU and all X number of GPUs. Have a blast. It'll still be a smarter choice to get a 2990wx in there instead of a dual Epyc. We showed you the dollar value benefit to using TR vs Epyc or...

    New AMD Navi RX 3080 "XT"- "Pro" / 3070 Info

    A lot of factors for an effective PR campaign for this market. The gamers who build their own know what they want and look at that performance per dollar. The ones who build their own and aren't knowledgeable look to those who are, hopefully ending up in the first group down the line. The ones...

    New AMD Navi RX 3080 "XT"- "Pro" / 3070 Info

    I just really hope this isn't everything for them. AMD needs to offer either a 10% lower value for matching performance or a 10% higher performance for a matching price to really get this off the ground. A dollar for dollar performance to price match isn't going to get people to switch preferred...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    If you label AMD as hype and refuse to accept that it clearly and obviously isn't by the myriad of reviews saying that the current lineup is a damned strong comeback from them, then go bug the Intel people. Again, you're considering the wrong processors for the workload, and clearly I understand...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    Jeez, you're on the friggin internet... USE A SEARCH ENGINE! Also, why would you expect they wouldn't have damn near a matching feature set of Intel? Do you color AMD completely friggin dense...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    Email if you really want to order from them. Don't waste their time if not. Feel free to discuss with HPE direct if you want to as well. They'll all sell it to you if you're really willing to pay for it. Why do you keep crapping on AMD and yet you're looking for an AMD...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    But again, $600 12 core, 24 thread 2920X @ 629. You need to go down or up $100 to get the next nearest current Xeon Scalable system. And yet the 2920 beats both of them hands down by a mile. As to someone willing to sell you a platinum, Newegg has some for sale on their site. Cancom in San Fran...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    Wait wait... You say you can only afford a $200-$600 processor, but somehow that ISN'T THE PROBLEM? Why the hell are you even considering dual and quad processor epyc systems? And to top it off, you say that's the cheapest and slowed quad or hex system??? What rock have you been living under...

    Best recommended AMD Processor for Lian-Li D8000 server cube build

    I read most of this thread a couple of days ago and had a giggle watching Dan_D school you on what you need. Well, attempting to do so except that you're not listening to anyone. You're being told by a person who has managed systems you're describing including for the things you're wanting to...

    WD Easystore External Discussion

    In for another 2. Thanks for posting it. Been waiting for it to drop again so I could resort my storage server for more usable space.

    Anker Fast Wireless Charger, 10W Wireless Charging Stand, Qi-Certified

    Yep, should stop it entirely. We tried it on a caseless S9 with the metal plate, didn't work. Worked with an otterbox symmetry case, but not with an otterbox commuter on a Note 8. On the S9, the wireless charging coil is so centered that we can't even move the plate to allow for it. On the Note...

    Free Repair Kit can Fix Busted Oculus Rift CV1 Audio

    That's nice of him... Work is ordering one to see how he did it, then looking into ordering 20 more for the other 20 headsets we have that have this problem in our office alone. Hell, our latest installation with 32 rifts, we've already lost 10 to audio issues in a short span of time. Oculus...

    SuperMicro Wants to Re-Enter the Gaming Motherboard Market

    I miss my old DFI. Rock solid, OC'd like a dream. Compared to how boards look today, it'd be considered ugly, but it was unique and stood out when put up against all the other boards out there. Sure there were a few other nice looking motherboards floating around, but when sitting at a LAN and...
