    iOS 14+ wifi problems

    14.1 is a steaming pile of crap. I feel your pain. I have a 6S Plus that now runs @100% all the time & drops battery power from 100 to 60 in 3 hours. I've done a wipe, a restore from both icloud and itunes to no avail. Not to mention CarPlay is essentially unusable because it now constantly...

    3080 - What's the difference? Asus ROG vs TUF?

    As far as I can tell, the strix cards have more features related to extreme overclocking (voltage monitoring points on PCB while using ln2, 3x8 pin power delivery and more power delivery headroom). Also some "gamer" vibe and design aesthetics. TUF used to be a high grade and durable...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today!

    I don't rebuild that often, but I'm not gonna lie, I was motivated about upgrading by these new cards. However, I increasingly find myself day by day to not give a crap. Nvidia, AMD or otherwise. If I can't buy the products, why would I continue to care? /end rant. I think I'm going to...

    Troublesome GPT Protective partition =/

    So. Turned on my computer, couldnt get it to boot into windows - got stuck at the spinning dots. Restarted again into bios to check on things, and everything seems normal. No HDD's missing. Reboot and get into windows. Then I notice one of my storage drives is missing. I check disk...

    AmpereGate! RTX 3080 instability

    Much ado about nothing. Early days and driver bugs. There doesn’t seem to be much more performance to be gained from Ampere OC’ing. Is it nice to be at the top end? Yes. Absolutely. But the gains seem to be minimal in real world FPS for the effort and cost :/ Nvidia seems to have squeezed as...

    Time for a new case....which one of these?

    I’m not going crazy with the SSD’s. Just recycling the drives I already have, besides the optical :/ might get some 10tb drives and leave the 4tbs in Anyway, I’m deciding between the Phanteks P600s, the Corsair 4000d airflow and the Lancool 2. I like the O11 but it’s wide form won’t go on my...

    How do you find the airflow/temps in the Evolv compared to past cases you've used? Cheers

    Time for a new case....which one of these?

    Time to prepare for a new build and a new enclosure. I am very concerned about dust & pet hair (needs robust filters), but also for airflow efficiency. I'm planning for a tower air cooler (NHD-15), a standard atx mobo, 2 mechanical hard-drives, bunch of SSD's I have laying around, a RTX 3080 FE...
