    Very exciting, I hope they can hit the date. It will be amazing seeing the photos this can produce with the mirrors it's packing.

    New to Mining, looking for Tips/Advise

    Not sure if that thread is the best example. He simply was not going to the new coinbase pro website so his coins were not "hacked and drained". I get your point and agree keeping a large amount of coins on any trading platform is a risk.

    Cyberpunk 2077 - needs more polish for a AAA title

    No game lives up to the hype when it builds for so long. It has exceeded my expectations although I am finding more bugs the longer I play. It is still a good game, I am having a blast. Been a long time since I have been drawn to play a game so much. Probably the last time was Skyrim.

    Comfortable chair that improves posture?

    I've ran that Ergohuman chair for over 5 years at my current job. It has held up really well and I do think it helps posture. Very comfortable and well built.

    After Ampere Launch Survey

    after hearing about NV attempting to simplify their product stack I am just going to go for a 3080 tomorrow. Figured if I can get one at launch and pair that with the new Ryzen down the road it will make for an awesome upgrade from a 4970k/1080ti. Prepare your F5's!

    So buy Ampere or wait for AMD response?

    My guess is they will drop these cards, wait for amd, then drop the 3080ti version. i will just wait for the Ti version. I have always had good luck with those cards, EVGA 1080ti being the latest.

    What was your least favorite graphics card?

    +1 for the gtx 480. I ended up putting a huge heatsink on it which helped a lot but dam that card ran hot Hard to tell but I had the side 200mm fan feeding it as well as another 120mm fan on the other side.

    Just finished my new 10' desk, built the legs out of 3"x3" steel tube and painted it with some hammerite. Flat plate with threaded inserts to mount the top to the frame and mcmaster carr levelers for the feet. Used a Baltic birch counter top from Lowe's with 2 coats of stain and 4 coats of...

    Holster or pocket?

    pocket if I'm out and about, if I'm working outside at the house it stays in the truck. If I'm at work (desk job) its on my desk.

    Whats your "go-to" TIM ?

    I've always used Diamond 7 thermal paste. It works great, just need to put the tube in some warm water before applying because it is really thick when its cold. I have noticed temp differences in gpu's and cpu's when I use this versus other TIM. YMMV.

    "Intel in jeopardy" from insiders. Much much worse than what they tell.

    I also live in Oregon and have a bit of inside knowledge because our company was hired to do a ton of work there, the project is called D1X MOD 3 and yes it is another expansion onto Mod 1/2 . I guess I worded that wrong in my...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Official Thread

    I don't see it as an issue. As they said they want this game to be perfect and need more time to do that. This is par for the course in game development especially considering the kind of world they are making.

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    My Xstar 1440p is Duel link dvi so I was not able to get it to work with the 1080ti (didn't want to spend money on an active adapter) so I have been running 1080p again which kinda sucks. I have been waiting for a new monitor and gpu with the new display port revision to come out before I...

    How Bethesda Quickly Fell From Grace In One Year

    They better make the new Skyrim absolutely amazing, that will make a big difference. Give the players lots of content not hidden behind DLC paywalls. Take a page from CDPR, look how that strategy worked for them.

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    Suggestions on cocentrate/dye for water loop

    I have heard good things about Mayhems dyes. Also, their blitz cleaning kit works really well for cleaning rads. I have always used distilled water, if you want color without the problems of dies maybe look into colored tubing.

    do you guys still use air can to spray clean the case or you use compressor?

    The electric Milwaukee blower works really well too and its small and compact. Sometimes they include it free in bundles if you need other tools as well.

    Anyone know of a good keyboard cleaner?

    I take it out to the garage and use the air hose. Those mini electronics vacuums work really well too. Mentrovacuum has lots of different models as well. Some can blow and suck you just swap the hose to the other end. It does look like those models have bags as well but I think they come with a...
