    Diablo IV Announced

    the diablo games have always been about RNG. yes they suck at times but it’s not all bad either. there’s certainly arguments to be made about if they listened to the players but the other side of the coin the exact opposite arguments can be made. We also know at some point in time they may...

    Diablo IV Announced

    you haven’t been paying attention lately have you? how many other companies put time into a 7 year old game? Stagnate and dead? Only to people who can’t play, hate Blizzard for not being on their person timeline, or not making easier than it already is. you might actually want to look into...

    Diablo IV Announced

    They have been investing time into D3 as of late. The seasons have been good. They are reworking if armor sets. I believe we will see 2 new sets this next season. Haven’t been paying to much attention to patch notes... still play D3 and will play d4,5, 6 and maybe 7 (depending on my life...

    Micrososoft Edge Chromium

    I’ve been using the beta for almost two weeks. I like it. It’s fairly snappy. Haven’t had any real issues. Has worked with everything I have thrown at it.

    How do you control your fans/ pump. Advice plz.

    Seems what this place is about. The enthusiast. No one needs a car, let alone a corvette, or Ferrari. But damn if you can and wNt it. Go for it. I am buying the aquaero because I want the best and Zara and others have messed around enough to know it’s very nice and makes life easier. So...

    Sold 1080ti new owner has black screen

    Have experienced black screens on occasion with display ports and HDMI. Some monitors are picky and don’t like auto on the signal. We had to manually select the signal for it to work. Just a thought.

    Intel Notifies Partners of Upcoming Price Cuts

    I like it (Intel dropping prices). Not planning on buying intel but it feels like intel is finally seeing AMD as competition. I don’t blame them for doing anything up till now but it seems like now they don’t have a choice. Many are moving to AND and it’s not because they are just a outlier...

    VideoCardz: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X to become world’s first 16-core gaming CPU

    Which is really interesting. There’s a lot of IT folks that won’t look anywhere but Intel. Should be interesting when you can get a comparable chip for a fraction of the cost.

    Intel challenges AMD: “Come beat us in Real World gaming”

    Hasn’t AMD already beat them in real world gaming? Seems like AMD has a comparable product at a better price point. Arguably better in my view. That’s as real world as it gets. Intel can wave its epeen all over but why would I buy their chip verses AMD at this point? The speed increase of...

    EU plan to fit cars with speed limiters could be UNSAFE

    Most people don’t know how to drive anyways....at least safely. I don’t see daily hacking stories in the news for cars. Maybe it’s a problem, maybe not. It forces those agencies to rethink or fix. Override kind of defeats the purpose. If available most will use it all the time. The...

    Toyota and Suzuki Announce Electric Car Partnership

    This is an added cost to owning the vehicle. Many homes may not be capable. Not a problem to those who can afford it. Harder for those who can’t and own houses that need the upgrade. Upgrading services can be expensive that way. But let’s just assume it’s pocket change to upgrade or...

    Toyota and Suzuki Announce Electric Car Partnership

    So full of BS. Distant limitations are still a problem. 200+ miles doesn’t cut when a good day of driving may be 400+. Now you make the comment what’s an extra 20 minutes. I doubt you can find an EV plug everywhere in that amount time. Fossil fuels still win or HEV’s still win. You...

    Toyota and Suzuki Announce Electric Car Partnership

    Nope waiting for the same thing. If I remember correctly I believe Toyota wants an all all HEV vehicle lineup by 2025. It makes sense. If Hydrogen fuel cells isn’t the answer then they have to fast track EV. Afterall that will be where the money is at. I wouldn’t mind an HEV truck. Since...

    Lol so does your tv provider when they raise the rates. I’d encourage you prove your claim.

    Visa, Mastercard Mull Increasing Fees for Processing Transactions

    When you control the market. The funny part is many a store clerk/cashier can’t count back change. Re education would cost more for them.

    Visa, Mastercard Mull Increasing Fees for Processing Transactions

    And if they can charge more for the heir good and service because they know people will pay it. I’m sure they filed their paperwork at the feelings and good justification department

    Visa, Mastercard Mull Increasing Fees for Processing Transactions

    The justification is everyone will pay it and they make money. What do you believe good justification is? Prices of goods and services go up. There’s your good justification.

    Blizzard To Double Down on Warcraft and Diablo IPs

    I think it’s easy to get bored with D3 but I think you also miss where the value is for many. For example, I still play D3 three to four times per week. The aspects that are appealing is price to play (primary) and the relative time commitment. I can hop in for 10-20 minutes and have fun or...

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    There shouldn’t be subsides for anyone. But that’s my own view. I’ll start looking in 2025 for a newer truck. My current truck will be 21 years old at that point. With Toyota wanting most models to have electric choices by that time I am hoping the Truck line up will have something decent...

    Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax

    A few states are experimenting with a use (mileage) tax. Either by self reporting or by GPS. For some of us this would be great. As to the cyclists comment. A lot of us already insure our bicycles, many or most already have a license we pay the state and registration/licenses on one or many...

    Blizzard Responds to Diablo: Immortal Backlash

    I think this shows how little they understand or care about their Diablo fan base. D3 has captured more hours from me than I care to admit. It’s funny to read the BNet forums to see how many people are quitting and call the game dead even before this announcement. Maybe the new mobile game...

    NVIDIA's Secret GPU: TU106-400A vs. TU106-400 Benchmark

    Just a way for companies to not lose money on produced cards. Card makes the high spec goes to premium pricing Card doesn’t make the best spec may go to mid tier. Card meets the barest spec goes to the low tier bin. Saves the company from having to eat the cost. Granted it isn’t always...

    AMD Addresses 9900k Controversy and Outlines Benchmarking Practices

    In the same boat as you . I think intel is going to be feeling a lot more pressure. I am also rooting for AMD and they will most likely get my money this next round. I don’t have to have the absolute fastest machine. I’d rather have more money in my pocket. I think this to me is where AMD...

    To Water Cool or not to Water Cool

    What’s the maintenance cost piece? Is it a water change every 6 months or year? Full disassembly of the system to clean? I see if you use dye it’s diffetent as well. I’m looking at water cooling this time around as well but I am finding a lot of differing information.

    EVGA Supernova 850 T2 or Seasonic Prime 850 Titanium???

    Seasonic every day of the week. I switched to using their power supplies based on them being the only company to send retail samples to HardOCP for testing. The don’t cherry pick. To me that says a whole lot about the company. If you’re into saving money and every dollar counts. Go the...

    MetallicGear Cases by Phanteks

    I like it for the most part. I am having a struggle deciding between Phanteks and Thermaltake. I like the View 91 and the Enthoo line. Just trying to decide where I want to spend my money and if I really want to jump into watercooling. This to is another one to consider. One day I will shit...

    Ajit Pai: States Can't Enact Net Neutrality Rules

    On this I have to disagree with you. Verizon was at fault because they failed to make the switch which was agreed upon. Secondly they could have not offered that plan to start with. Thus they were at fault. Now onto the real topic. Seems to me Pai is a bit wrong here. We accommodate...

    Verizon Throttles Firefighters during California’s Largest Blaze

    Wouldn’t top tier service in this case just getting the service in the contract? You throttle someone’s service that shouldn’t have been throttled in the first place. That’s not expecting top tier service. That’s expecting you are getting what both agreed to.

    Verizon Throttles Firefighters during California’s Largest Blaze

    What’s amazing is this happened in the first place. So the system throttled based on usage - great. Someone has the inability to read and understand the terms of the contract - failure Even when called they try to upsell the contract -failure Yet we rely on these people to treat us fairly...

    NVIDIA NDA & HardOCP - POLL

    I would say think hard on what your lawyers advice was. I understand if you do sign it as that makes financial sense. I also understand if you don't sign it on general principle. It could go either way. I don't pay your bills and that means I don't have a say (really though, thanks for...

    St. Louis University Is Installing Amazon Alexa-Enabled Echo Dots Campus-Wide

    364 Idaho Inmates Hacked Their Prison Tablets for Free Credits

    Hopefully I never have to. However if that is the system then that is how it is. In terms of it it may be easier than actually having to deal with prison politics and life in prison forever. You still haven’t gave us the perfect solution to this problem.
