    WTB: GPU upgrade $200 max

    1070 can be had for $180 even, I picked up a 1070ti for my boss in the fs for $200 If you wanna future proof save for the 3070 series around September/October it’ll be about $500-$600.

    RUMOR: NVIDIA to announce the GeForce RTX 3000 in August

    They likely couldn’t rush the release with manufacturing delays due to the pandemic. Unemployment rate in the US is now double digit percentage and headed towards great depression numbers, a new gpu would be an extreme luxury for many folks. Better to hold on releasing in hopes everything turns...

    Weird Outlook sync issues - Exchange

    Agreed, my knowledge comes from office 2013, it was 2gb ost still for that version when it first released. So its a bit dated, just trying to give suggestions of things to try to resolve the issue.

    9700K vs 9900K in gaming 1440P only!

    I think he was trying to say what future games are going to need more than 8 cores inferencing that the 9900k isn't needed.

    What SSD and how to install it in Late 2012 27-inch iMac so that fans don't run 24/7?

    You need a digital in-line thermal sensor for it to avoid the fan issues. You can purchase it separately: https://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/DIDIMACHDD12/?customer-reviews&ratings.page=7 Or with a kit that includes all the tools and replacement adhesive etc...

    RUMOR: NVIDIA to announce the GeForce RTX 3000 in August

    I guess the timeframe I was thinking of was the 2080 to the 2070 release, (I generally pick up the 70 series so makes sense from a recollection perspective)

    Do small home UPS's usually release firmware updates?

    I've had good lucky with my APCs, i have a pair of the 1500BX and one 1300BX, they're going on 7 years now and 2 of them started complaining about the battery health declining finally (replaced the 3rd about 2 years ago).

    Upgrade to m.2 ssd

    Depends what you're doing, for most workloads such as gaming and general productivity no. If you're doing heavy video editing and/or encoding it can hammer the disk hard enough to get it to throttling temps. 99% of the time just a thermal pad on the nvme controller is sufficient (if any).

    Micro ATX cases

    I'm a stickler for noise, the sound reducing padding Fractal Design puts on their panels is awesome and they are functional aesthetically pleasing too. I was actually looking at the Define C regular for my next case.

    WTB: Mid/high end CPU+mobo+ram combo, something like ryzen 3600 or intel 9700k or similar

    Any reason not to get the 3700x for the extra cores and frequency for only 20$ more? https://www.newegg.com/amd-ryzen-7-3700x/p/N82E16819113567?reviews=all&Description=3700x&cm_re=3700x-_-19-113-567-_-Product&quicklink=true Nevermind just noticed that was a combo for the board too

    Do small home UPS's usually release firmware updates?

    Basically if there is a medium to minor problem with the unit, they will resolve it by releasing v1.1 compared to v1.0 which might have a different controller, lcd, or board that had increased failure etc. By recall the version I'm referring to from the customer/consumer, if it was a bad enough...

    Do small home UPS's usually release firmware updates?

    The home version are generally USB connected so no particularly major security concerns. The enterprise versions sometimes have FW updates for the remote management controllers and snmp/network communique cards, but are usually few and far between. To my knowledge the home versions aren't...

    Noob here - how to tell if I did new thermal paste OK

    You squeeze out the amount and swirl it is what I did, it rested horizontally so the grease/oil separation came out semi evenly. My contact with them was probably 5y ago, I used that big tube up years ago though, I'm on MX-4 now as I got annoyed with the burnin time and wanted final results faster.

    Best cooling solution for i9-9900K

    Don't take this the wrong way, did you remove the plastic sheet that protects the pre-applied thermal paste?

    Best cooling solution for i9-9900K

    Causation does not imply correlation, plugging that in should have no bearing on your temperatures. If you're idling above 40c with no workload redo the thermal paste still.

    Best Buy Closes All Shops Due To Coronavirus; Delivery & Pickup Only

    Funny thing, they’re essential because they offer electronics for people to be able to work from home. They’re paying all their employees supposedly during the quarantine too. Kinda surprising from what ive heard about their normal antics towards employees.

    Noob here - how to tell if I did new thermal paste OK

    Where did you get that info? When I contacted their support team about my 5y/o tube of AS5 they said it didnt have a shelf life. They did note it might separate after years of sitting in the same position but wouldn’t affect its properties if remixed.

    Best cooling solution for i9-9900K

    You likely need to turn off/disable speed stepping, it clocks the cpu down when not in heavy use to save power and heat, turning it off the cpu runs the CPU at 100% boost (or OC) all the time. Thats probably why you're not seeing the 5.0ghz, its also why your processor probably isnt...

    Best cooling solution for i9-9900K

    Agreed with Dan thats way too high for idle high 30s low 40s should be idle unless your ambient temp is 38c, I would reseat the cooler and reapply thermal paste However I disagree about the 360mm AIO giving you noticably better cooling. Fact of the matter the 9900k runs really hot, 90c+ is...

    Installing Win 10 version 1809 or earlier

    1909 I think is the only one you can avoid via normal updates (it has a separate download and install option), the cumulative updates I think go up to 1903 currently. Regular updates/patches would turn it into 1903 I believe, not sure if you could try to do download only and not install those...
