    How to add 20+ HDD to a computer with 1 sata port and many USB ports available. CHIA madness.

    I have a giant box of 500gb hard drives, and I've decided I cannot spend any (ok MUCH) more money being a moron and farming CHIA. I have an extra power supply, so I can get them spinning no problem. Just need to interface them with my farming rig. I have solar panels so electricity cost doesn't...

    Display you look at every time you use a device vs. a chip that most people never use 1/2 of the "power" of by looking at instragram photos?

    Foxconn Axes 50,000 Seasonal Jobs as Apple Slowdown Bites

    But it has liquid retina display!!! LOL. Are people finally catching on the apple's marketing bullshit and realizing they are paying $500+ for a 720p screen in 2019?

    Netflix Will Now Interrupt Series Binges with Video Ads for Its Other Series

    A large number of boats are going to be getting dropped in the pirate seas if this happens. Just live lord Gaben said, piracy is a service problem. If your service shows me ads, I no longer pay for it. I can tolerate ads on the radio or on my OTA tv, because I don't pay shit for it.

    Freesync, enhanced sync, chill. WTF do I use?

    Just an update...been rocking freesync + enhanced sync + chill in PUBG and things have been fantastic. Noise is down, it drops to my low limit 70fps when I'm just being a prone garbage-player then jumps above that with movement seamlessly. A bit more quiet outta the stock blow-dryer. Would...

    Freesync, enhanced sync, chill. WTF do I use?

    Alright...I've searched for hours and received about 100 different combinations of answers, mostly on reddit. Time to go to the experts. I have a 1440p 144hz freesync monitor, Vega 56 flashed to 64. PUBG is my primary game right now, usually getting around 70-140 FPS in this shit-coded game...

    Mysterious RED Hydrogen Smartphone Coming This Summer

    I've gone 100% the opposite direction with phones... Every few years I decide to buy a nicer, light, "fancy phone" and I end up dropping it, nothing breaks but I become paranoid, and then I slap some stupid freaking case on it so I'm not afraid to use it. Then I have a huge, bulky phone with...

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    What do you mean by webfilter? I'm guessing since I don't know what that is, I don't use it. LOL

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    Yep...I updated both of them to latest firmware. I also made the mistake of installing the controller software on my gaming PC not my always on Server, so I had to factory reset them and re-install on the server so I can VNC in to manage them from anywhere. I thought they would be like most...

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    Alright, Ubiquiti access points installed. Super easy, super slick looking. Everything is up and running, R7000 no longer handling wifi. My wife hasn't complained about a single drop thus far. The Ubiquiti setup was way easier than I thought...mostly just named my SSID, put in a password...

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    Alright, I did it...this is the route I'm going. Keeping the R7000 for routing, disabling wifi, and adding an AC PRO upstairs and an AC LITE in basement. This should cover everything, offload some of the work from my struggling R7000 wifi, and let me dip my feet in to the thought of going...

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    There is my current "home network' setup. We built a house about a year ago and this is where I stand. Upgrades from the picture are just AT&T fiber, 300up/300 down. The nighthawk does a good job, a bit crappy upstairs in the attic (but I'm not there often, just a PITA when I'm trying to...

    Murdered my GPU I think - suggestions

    Alright...this is a first for me, and I'm a long-ish time system builder. This is a rig upgrade for a friend, and he doesn't have many spare parts to help me test. GPU in question - R9 380 Issue - Near immediate crash any 3d game. Fine for 2d browsing, etc. The story - upgrading old Phenom II...
