    Be careful with AMD direct guys and gals

    Agree that Digital River is a font of steaming bullshit. Unfortunate that they were chosen to fullfill orders. As has been pointed out elswyer in this forum, Amazon is putting Ryzen retail boxes into flimsy padded envelopes. Mine arrived undamaged but many others have not been as lucky.

    Opinions, options for air cooling 5900x

    DRP4 will be a Newegg shell shocker on 3-15(Monday). I grabbed one while they had stock during black friday pricing and it's been working good in another build. Chromax black is classy also, it's the model of my NH-D15.

    Buying a second Asus RT-AC66U B1 will this work ?

    Which specific objective(s) are you looking to accomplish? There are ways to go around the AT&T gateway and use your own router but you will lose some features of their hardware, and it will cost you more to use your router instead of theirs as you will need some static IPs(which they will...

    Buying a second Asus RT-AC66U B1 will this work ?

    Are you wanting to use the second ASUS as the main router instead of the AT&T, keeping the AT&T device as a modem/Gateway? Do you need wider WiFi coverage? You could get a second AC-66u and use it inside on repeater mode. My old AC-66u A1 still works great for that function, it even had a BIOS...

    Recommend me good Big Tower with 3x120mm ( 360 ) AIO fans support.

    The ODD should be referring to the optical disc drive cage. I'm surprised that any new cases still have 5 1/4 inch drive bays. CD/DVD/BD drives were always at the top front of the case. Most people hook them up externally in various ways these days.

    Leaked benchmarks put Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti GPU within a whisker of RTX 3090

    Did someone say a dual 6900 GPU card?!?!?!?!?!?!? Introducing the Double Down Double Dog Dare U Twinsies Edition RAD(eon) Will not fit in a case! Will not fit in a closet! Only a room with much volume can contain this much awesomeness! So large John Holmes would have the envy! Requires delivery...

    Infinity (well-reviewed and highly regarded) reference series home theatre speakers are extremely low priced right now.

    Alright so as I said in earlier post, no messages from Harman, order had vanished from website history, and now the RC263 appears on my doorstep 🍀:woot: No idea at all what this company is doing. They charged me the 70% off sale price. Now I need to redo my setup, was using right left speakers...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    If they had a queue going I would be in line. I'm out of the running for this gen of cards, sticking with my B stock 2080.

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 461.09 WHQL Drivers

    Hopefully that root cause of frame drops when fixed applies to all forms of gaming since it also happened on my GTX 980Ti (not an RTX obviously) and I have no VR headset for my RTX 2080 (pity on me for having poor eyesight).

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 461.09 WHQL Drivers

    In the back of my mind I had thought about that, mitigations causing performance losses yet those fixes supposedly came with this driver release and there are people on nvidia forums with the same FPS issues going back a few releases. I'm fine with reverting to a much earlier driver and keeping...

    Infinity (well-reviewed and highly regarded) reference series home theatre speakers are extremely low priced right now.

    Had been checking my Harman account regarding the Infinity center channel that was on backorder, logged in the other day and found my recent order page was empty. Seems my order was quietly purged from their system, no notification email whatsoever. So I guess I try fall 2021 to get a matching...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 461.09 WHQL Drivers

    Installed yesterday, encountered terrible frame rates in games. Installed on secondary computer as an experiment and had same problem, so not limited to one GPU generation. Switched IRQ to message signal interrupt, no difference. Browsed geforce forums(a pox on nvidia for that dog shit forum...

    Canada and US: LG 32" 144Hz VA-panel 1440P Gaming Monitor with FreeSync (works in G-Sync Compatible) - $399 CAD with free shipping / $299 USD

    Thanks for this, ordering one for myself. Have been on 24 inch 1920x1200 60Hz IPS for quite a while. Will be nice to have higher refresh available, haven't had that option since I used CRTs.

    AI-Enabled Cheetos Offer Promise of the Perfect Puff

    I would have thought that they would use AI to determine where each flavor/variety of cheetos sold best and where to maintain stock. To use AI to design the puffs themselves, I can't help think of Data from ST:TNG asking humans about the allure of food, or the conversation in The Matrix about...
