    US’s largest pipeline crippled by cyber attack

    Depends on the car and its engine size -- some sedans can have almost 20 gallon tanks.

    What is your backup GPU?

    Intel integrated GPU! :D...though if I were desperate, I have access to an ancient GTX 470, and possibly a GTX 970.

    What do people think of the Nvidia RTX Titan?

    May as well make the switch if it isn't going to cost you much if anything overall, just to get a more valuable card. You may not see much if any of a performance increase over your 2080ti with the tasks you asked about, though.

    The Absolute State of the MMORPG Genre

    Hah, so kind of like "The World", the MMO that .hack was about? I'd be into it despite there being a teensy tiny risk of going into a coma if your character dies in game, NBD. :D

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Kind of working on getting rid of some of my classic game stuff -- recently having sold my GameCube. Was looking at selling my SNES, but I'm going to visit my parents this weekend and take it to see if my lil' niece and nephew are interested in it at all. They are pretty spoiled lol, so they may...

    I can get a RTX 3070 for MSRP (actual MSRP) should I ?

    It may be bottlenecked some, but you could upgrade your core system components down the road. It's roughly 2080ti performance -- you will still see some nice FPS gains! :D

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'll give them both a try, also looking at maybe playing Chun. About the grabs, totally -- I feel like I get away with far too many dash up throws just because it's online and his dash is fast (and throw range is good).

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Didn't play MK11...but I did play some Street Fighter V in an attempt to get back into the game for local interest. There are lots of small things about the game that annoy me, but I'm trying to give it another chance since it's changed some since I last played. Really a lot of it I think comes...

    Noctua NH-D15 RAM height for second fan?

    I have the NH-D15S and Corsair LPX RAM, and even still the front 140mm fan that I added pokes out over the heatsink, and that's with it literally sitting on top of the RAM haha. Works fine though, the only issue I could see is if the clips don't attach properly with you having to have that fan...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Yeah that's exactly what happened to me with the Strix and FE, and I was there right at the beginning as well! Except it gave me the add to cart button on the individual card pages, but wouldn't add -- I refreshed my cart and they were apparently both sold out already lol. It feels random as to...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    I got extremely lucky and managed to purchase an EVGA 3080 XC3 from BB today. I had an Asus and FE both give me the yellow button long after they had actually already sold out so that was pretty disappointing. I was about to bail, but refreshed a few times later just out of curiosity, and...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Didn't manage to play anything this weekend, but only because I was assembling my new build! I did end up buying Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate though, my first MK game since like UMK3 I think.

    Affinity Designer, Photo, Publisher and Textures, Overlays, Fonts 50% off

    I bought these a while back as well -- I think when I got 'em they were on sale for $30 or so each at the time. Designer is especially nice as a cheap way to make vector graphics.

    mATX Mobo suggestion for 10900k, or alternatives

    I did end up just buying Kirby's Asus Z490 G (!!!) but the MSI was certainly the other one that I was shopping around for yesterday. I already have the 10900k, so some of the key features of the 500 series boards would be lost on me unless I got an 11th gen cpu as well. Is the mATX form factor...

    mATX Mobo suggestion for 10900k, or alternatives

    Looking for options because I find myself in a bit of a spot right now. I had started a build into a Silverstone SG09 a few weeks ago based around the 10900k, and I was using an Asus Z490 G wifi mATX motherboard. I ended up having to RMA the board to Newegg because it wouldn't post no matter...

    Anyone else love their old case?

    I've still been clinging onto my old Lian LI PC-A05N for years and years despite having moved onto a different setup, just looking for the day where I may use it again. It's a sexy case! Just the specs require a specific kind of setup since the video card length is limited, as well as the drive...

    Memory Lane: List some of your old favorites

    1) MechWarrior 3 2) The Secret of Monkey Island ...I didn't have much access to a PC when I was younger ><. My family didn't have a powerful computer, and I couldn't afford anything decent on my own. Looking back, if I had been more computer savvy I probably would have really enjoyed the...

    Anyone employ a delayed purchase method for games?

    I definitely tend to lag behind a bit with game releases. It is usually not something that I actively employ as a rule, though I guess it still comes with the same benefits mentioned in the OP. I will occasionally buy a game at launch though if I'm definitely going to be invested in it, like if...

    Scratches on Noctua base, worth saving?

    Thanks for all of the helpful replies, guys! An update: I actually did end up deciding to order an NH-D15, but more for trying to better tame my 10900k. I appreciate the reassurance though, and right now the plan is to lightly brush off the little raised coating bit and install the D14 into my...

    Scratches on Noctua base, worth saving?

    Yeah! I know this kind of thing is relatively normal, I have just re-used this cooler several times and this is the first time I've noticed exposed copper, or a raised fleck of metal from the coating around any of the scratches. The D15 performs ~slightly~ better, plus I like the look, and...

    Scratches on Noctua base, worth saving?

    I recently removed my NH-D14 due to a system upgrade with the intention to reuse, but I noticed it has developed some scratches around the edges of the previous IHS. I've noticed them before, but this time it seems they have gotten more pronounced and are exposing copper. On one of the corner...

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    I guess whether it was up to SE or Sony it doesn't really matter, but it does seem strange in light of the Yuffie DLC stuff being PS5 only.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    Seems like it's just a gesture to appease people who bought it for PS4, when it's looking like subsequent parts/expansions may be more geared toward the PS5, if not only available on the PS5.

    Anandtech and Gamers Nexus 11700k Reviews

    The 5000 series would be safe to buy, but there may still be USB issues for now until they are potentially fixed -- at least AMD is aware of it. Eesh this review is bad though, makes me glad I got a 10900k not too long ago. If you don't get AMD, Comet Lake is still good, especially with price drops.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Still playing Xenogears on PS3 while I reformat my PC and build the other HTPC/gaming rig with my old parts. I'm going to go hard into learning a new fighting game once everything is set up. Titles on the table are Tekken 7 or KoF 13 right now. Just got a hitbox style controller, so it's all new...

    CPU situation for 3d artist

    Oh forgot to say, but you're right about a successor not being compatible with that mobo -- the 5000 series is the last that will be on the AM4 platform. 5950X is the peak performance available on that socket.

    CPU situation for 3d artist

    If it were me, I'd build with a 5800x or 3900x, with the intention to eventually upgrade the CPU. I also don't feel like it'd be great to buy the 3950x at such a high price when it's currently in the process of being phased out. 3900x gets you 12 core/24 threads -- 5800x gets you 8 core/16...

    The GPU Sadness Index: aka the Shadenfreude Pricing Index

    Ugh, almost got a 3080 from the Zotac store -- got as far as having it in my cart, but the site would crash every time I was in the process of checking out, until it went out of stock. :C RIP

    Nvidia 1070 ti

    I have a 1070 ti as well, running on a 1440p 60hz monitor right now. I think it's still a fairly adequate card, but like I am unable to max out games like Red Dead 2 and get consistent 60 FPS. Still a decent card to hold you over until something better comes.

    Nvidia 1070 ti

    Yeah, it's hard to recommend anything unless you just find a killer deal, or can afford to pay an excessive amount of money. This is an especially bad time though, being just after the Chinese New Year and all. I'll start to feel more worried if we're still under the same strain like this during...
