    Looking for a replacement, 1920x1200

    Necroing this. Currently I have a BenQ BL2411PT, it's not exactly newest tech and when I bought it 24" was the top of 1920x1200. But now I see these: Acer BW257 bmiprx, BenQ BL2581T (hey that's suspiciously similar to my current one), Lenovo ThinkVision T25d-10, T25m-10 (I already have a Lenovo...

    Phantex evolv x vs LianLi O11Dynamic XL ROG Certified for new Threadripper 3970x build (air cooled)?

    Either the Evolv X or the P600S is fine. Front 3 x 140mm intake, top 2 x 140mm exhaust, rear 1 x 140mm exhaust, Dark Rock Pro TR4. You will be fine. You don't need water for this but you do need a TR4 specific cooler -- covering the full heat spreader is absolutely vital. kitguru tested this one...

    [???] use USB C monitor without USB C?

    Hello from the USB C Hardware subreddit. Ps. As I noted on reddit too but since it's inlined so most of you won't click, adding HDMI: if you don't want to pay the StarTech hype tax, https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-DisplayPort-Adapter-Supporting/dp/B00JQORLCG this is cheaper and 4.5 stars...

    Something totally else: a 150CFM fan at 0.3 sones

    Yes this is not a PC fan and yes it's huge (well... it's 6") and very expensive for a fan but I thought it would be interesting to show what's possible -- this amount of air at this loudness is pretty much unheard of ;) Just in case someone is insane enough to integrate it as a case fan...

    Safe 4+4 converter?

    With high wattage CPUs on the market, desktop motherboards with 4+8 pin or even 8+8 pins are becoming more common but most PSUs only have one. On the other hand , SLI and especially triple and quad SLI are definitely dying out but the PSUs have a bazillion PCIe connectors. Is there a connector...

    Kindly link to some of those please? Thanks! I found 3M long Twinax cables for $30 which is kind of ouch -- you'd need four, after all. I am new to this. Are you saying for example this cable could work with that card?

    Hot? Threadripper 1920x 12 core, 24 thread $399.99 @ amazon

    yes, threadripper is for multithread heavy tasks, say, video transcoding, not gaming which is still mostly about single thread. AFAIK the ThreadRipper 2950X is an exception: it is the fastest among AMD in single thread, about 20% below the fastest Intel single threads -- and destroys any Intel...

    SilverStone SX650-G Dual EPS

    Did anyone manage to solve this problem without resorting to a converter like this?

    FE / blower cards power plug placement

    Anyone order Threadripper 2 yet? User feedback is highly valuable.

    What are you doing that PCIe 3.0 is a bottleneck or even a potential bottleneck? https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_1080_PCI_Express_Scaling/25.html it's not like PCIe 3.0 x16 is used.... the performance gain from 3.0 x4 to x16 is miniscule and x8 vs x16 is the same.

    Is it possible the RTX series is the scrapped mining cards re-purposed?

    Optane as system drive?

    That's the thing -- I know SATA vs NMVe in feeling is little (in fact I have been advocating against people wasting money on NVMe for this reason) but yes, I did my research and I thought Optane might be worth it. So you are saying I should wait a year. I can do that. No rush. The ThinkPad 25...

    Optane as system drive?

    I have an 512GB SATA and a 512GB NVMe drive in my laptop. Truth be told, I am not usng a terrible lot on the NVMe -- 145GB currently and I can move steamapps and wsl from c:\ to d:\ to make that 100GB and that's just two. So I could live with a 118GB system drive, yeah. Is it much faster than...

    Wikipedia is contradictory on AMD history

    They are two articles and I am well aware of its factuality -- I intend to fix one of the articles just not sure which one to fix. The question could be worded: was Bulldozer (and Zen, I guess) built from total scratch or are there significant blocks from Nx586 remaining?

    mATX to ITX, "S" FF build advice

    mATX to ITX, "S" FF build advice

    Replacing dual X5670?

    Replacing dual X5670?

    No. I am looking for a price efficient solution and then I will figure out whether I could afford it. The big question is: does this need a HEDT or are we there yet where a single desktop CPU can replace two very old hexacore CPUs?

    Hades Canyon NUC - Kaby Lake with Vega GPU
