    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    I got lucky. Nowinstock.net texted me right before I stepped into the shower, around 4:55 am local (10:55 am EST). Clicked over to Amazon -- even had time to change to Amazon Smile -- added to cart and ordered. Huzzah. One of the very few times being -10:00 GMT has actually helped. Once I'd...

    *DEAD Samsung Odyssey+ VR Headset ($229 DEAD)

    Good deal. I recommend. I have a Vive, a Pimax 5K+, and an Odyssey Plus. (Fantastic Prime Day Warehouse Deals) I end up using the O+ much more than the others, simply because it's far easier pack up and put away, or take to a friend's, or simply take out and use, than the ones with external...

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    Likewise; here's to hoping. Of course, 12:01am EST is 7:01pm for me, so a tad bit easier to do the night before a work day. OTOH, it means I miss a lot of East-coast morning deals.

    Ryzen 3950X, 3960X, 3970X Availability

    I'm in the same boat, Vader. I decided in September that I was going to finally upgrade my main 2014 X99 / 5820K rig* and would either go with a 3900x or 3950x, depending on how the latter looked when the reviews came out. I've spent the interim weeks slowly putting together the whole rest of...

    Ultra Low (idle) Power Home Server? Suggestions?

    Hey all. I'd like to put together a small home Linux server that will be on 24/7 and mostly serve light duty; lightweight web server, non-transcoding PLEX server, an Asterisk voip gateway for a couple of vintage phones, a few other things. And then a small-ish game server that complicates...

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    I went with the Accell displayport cables on Amazon, since they are correctly wired (pin 20 is disconnected) unlike many other manufacturers. (You could also manually disconnect the pin if you are handy and very careful.) The Accell DP-to-miniDP greatly reduced the amount of "blinking" I had...

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    Update: Still love my monitor. The random blinking-after-waking issue was resolved when I upgraded my video card (GTX 980), so it appears it was just a problem with my HD7870; probably had trouble pushing the 4K@60Hz

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    FYI, there are finally some reviews of this monitor coming out, and most of the negatives are quibbles, imho. Apparently the speaker output is low (I've not hooked mine up for sound and likely never will) and the color accuracy drops off at full brightness (a level at which I am pretty sure I...

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    I'm glad I got this monitor, as it's just beautiful; no dead pixels, nothing. I'd planned on going to a 27" 4K monitor, but this is a much better upgrade coming from a 24" 16:10. I've only experienced a minor issue, which is that when I turn the monitor back on after it has been in power-save...

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    I got mine and my miniDP cable today but didn't have an opportunity to hook it all up until almost 10pm. I then spent the next couple of hours marveling at HD/4k video on this thing. Fabulous. Games at 4k that I briefly sampled (Stalker, Shadows of Mordor) weren't playable with my HD7870, but...

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    According to the Specs section here, the 6950 supports a maximum resolution of 2560x1600, which I find quite surprising. I had to double check my card too, but it supports 4K. My monitor is supposed to arrive tomorrow and I'm planning to keep my Radeon 7870 (Tahiti LE) at least until we see...

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    I ordered at 3:15am EST and the status changed to shipped about 6am, lol. We'll see. If they're coming from the midwest, I could conceivably receive it tomorrow, here in Ohio. I had 48 hour delivery on my last Egg Saver shipping too. The sad thing is that I'm swamped with work and my masters...

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    For anyone out there who is awake at this hour, NewEgg just emailed out their Thanksgiving / BF promo. At 12:00am PST (3:00am EST) they will be dropping the price of the 32" Acer B326HK to $699.
