    AMD Drivers

    Did they ever reintegrate recording and streaming into the latest driver? Had to deal with that a couple months ago on a kids 1st gaming build. Kids these days, just playing a game isn’t good enough for them anymore.

    Should I sell my GPU?

    3070 review embargo lifted today. Big Navi embargo lifts in a few hours from now. I hope you sold it.

    So.....who's buying a 3070?

    I'm liking reviewers drawing a $/performance line to 2080ti with 3070 3060 should be fun bc going right at the sacred 1080tiark for $300 will be the big seller I'll wait to see what the 2x vram rumors pan out to be if simply the 2080ti and 1080ti bar are met. If you are going to exceed a mark...

    Threadripper 1950X or 3950X for linux workstation + nested virtualization.

    With respects to running ESXi you map your desired features to white box component matrix. Your main concern sounds like commodity resources. I'd want HEDT for nvme drives if I had specific workloads like "I wanna run K8s to learn how to synthetically populate a data lake.". That would be an...

    Used GPU Market Crash of 2020

    Ampere with more vram will crater current used prices. I'm in a holding pattern with a 2060. Totally content to see what comes out of tsmc

    MSI Unify 490 and i9-10900k overclock questions/settings/trials and frustrations? High temps?

    I think you are finding stability issues back when guys clocking would use ps2 peripherals. Driver issues can be a problem, mine usually come from the fact I make a living using HyperV, and it doesn't like a system pushed to the edge all core. I had usb issues like you describe back in the Core...

    If you had $1500 to spend on a monitor set up what would it be?

    I'd be replacing an X34 and an XB1 with same resolutions, same IPS, but gain only more framerate. I'm cool where I am for now.

    Best exhaust fan?

    You don't need a Delta or a Sunon in a consumer case unless it's stupid restrictive with lots of 90deg turns. Simply adding a top mounted exhaust forward of your cpu cooler will negatively affect cooler performance. Heat pooling spots may benefit from addition of a fan that isn't your exhaust...

    Help me decide

    P400a is narrow if air cooling, feels chintzy for these +$20 prices I've sent lately, kinda tight if you plan on shoehorning in a long gpu.

    Are computers becoming more and more boring to you?

    I get bogged down by the 3-5 year stretches it takes to saturate a panel. I thought 180hz 1080p was just it man. 1080ti and 7700k/7820x/9700kf pegged that monitor and everything felt super good. Then I stumble over a deal on a 1440p 165hz panel and I decide I just gotta have more viewable area...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    I worked on game POCs where we reskinned a previous build just to show to product directors. Kinda like shooting 12 diff scenes for an ad, TV show, or movie just to get options they want to discuss. What I've watched of this beta so far seems a lot like "watch/play this, you get the drift, if...

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    Bc the error code leads straight to a hard crash.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    They lost a year of Dev time bc activision had to shuffle studio release cycle. I guess Sledgehammers build was that bad. I’m thinking I should ignore CoD until they can get builds to a better state. I’m still getting hard crashes today after cleaning out game files and rolling driver back.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War 2020

    I can't play at all. Tried all the fixes, guess I'll wait. Nothing like a constant hard crash power cycle wash rinse repeat.

    I was minding my own business then bam! I own a 3800X uh oh...

    No sweat, I just wish they'd work on it bc locked 1 thread looks like a POC. Not a shipping game that costs $ to play.
