    Warm? TPLink Archer AX-11000 $200 at Costco (instore only I guess?)

    Isn’t that all that’s needed? I remember trying to add APs to an existing wireless network year ago. You can’t ask normal users to join 2-3 wireless networks so they can have full coverage in the building. Maybe I could get by with one super powerful wireless router or AP - but I’d rather...

    EVGA Extended Warranties - Submit Your Ticket, Get Your Refund

    Got my first two refunds - $60 a pop. Truly reminds you of just how great of a company EVGA is. Such a huge loss for them to no longer be an NVIDIA partner. :(

    I'd love to do an SFF build but I am having a hard time finding a small case that supports a 360mm rad. Any recommendations? I'd love to have the small size but also awesome airflow (will be using air cooled GPUs). With the 4xxx series over 300mm in size that's yet another challenge... EDIT...

    That's what cellular tether is for. My users are not that picky. :) Plus - I don't want to go down that path. I am lucky enough to have two fiber providers in my neighborhood but yet I am still sticking with cable, for now (just the right overall option for us where we are at - kids under 3 so...

    Maybe you guys can buy a warranty for your extended warranty.

    eero is strictly a wireless device (bridge) - the 60F does all of the UTM functions, ACLs, etc. My license for the Fortinet expires in December so I am getting a Firewalla Gold Plus when they release (pre-ordered). I think it is well worth it. I paid around $600 for my 6E setup. The Internet is...

    Warm? TPLink Archer AX-11000 $200 at Costco (instore only I guess?)

    I'm sure I'll get flamed but I have used eero in my home since 2017 (and upgraded to their latest units along the way - on eero Pro 6E now) and it has worked awesome. Today, I have full wired backhaul so it really hums - but last year and previously it was all wireless (3 units, sometimes more -...

    EVGA Extended Warranties - Submit Your Ticket, Get Your Refund

    Why not roll the device and submit a question and ask for a refund? It's literally one sentence. The worst they can say is no. EDIT - 3080 bought in March 2021:

    Around 4:15 Sorry I guess I wasn't clear - it will boost to 95 C based on cooler choice. But yes, to your point - games will probably not get there.

    That won't work - the chip is designed to hit 95 no matter what. Obviously, if you have custom water cooling you will hit 95 with more performance headroom.

    EVGA Extended Warranties - Submit Your Ticket, Get Your Refund

    I bought mine early last year and they're refunding. Everyone should request it - worth a shot. No chance they're going to honor warranties past about 2-3 years from now. No way they'll keep that much 3xxx and earlier card stock. As great of a company they are!

    EVGA Extended Warranties - Submit Your Ticket, Get Your Refund

    I didn't see anything posted - forgive me if this has been discussed. But I wanted to bring visibility to the fact that EVGA is offering refunds on extended warranties for the graphics cards - since they're exiting the NVIDIA business. Simply login to your account, go to the product in question...

    Yeah and just think of the future potential comparison between Z690 and X670E...AM5 will be the standard for a good while. Not the right way to look at it, I guess - but a new AMD platform may house 2-3 CPUs in its life time.

    For all intents and purposes HEDT is dead. X670E is HEDT these days, IMO. So stretching to $500+ with that type of board isn't absolutely horrible. I'd love to see true HEDT return!

    Yes, if you need a new build now - AM5 is a great investment for the today and the future. Just look at the longevity for AM4! I built a 5800X3D rig earlier this year when NO ONE was buying any hardware and it turns out it wasn't a bad choice. The stuff I was buying that miners were blowing out...
