    Adapter/bracket for Antec KUHLER H2O 920 AIO to 1070ti?

    I've upgraded and have a spare Kuhler 920 AIO and a triple fan 1070ti and I'm interested in testing the AIO cooler for luls. Is there a bracket available to mount this? I think they changed something about the 920 during its lifetime and I don't know which revision I might have - bought it...

    Future of Blu-Ray vs Streaming?

    If you want to *own* the content, you'll have to purchase the physical media. But they're going to break the physical media model eventually - every major streaming company now produces its own content and I don't think any of it will ever come to disc. Streaming services are starting to add...

    HP Reverb G2

    Don't forget Superhot VR is also 40% off, now $15. I haven't tried it yet myself. I've spent a few hours in Valve's "The Lab" (free), which I feel was really well done. A couple hours in Google Earth VR (free), which I had experienced once before. The remaining ~100 hours in DCS: World.

    Am I about to get scammed?

    What about a verified address with snail mail confirmation. Lots of companies do it that way. You add a new address and go through a verification process where they mail you a card with a unique code on it, you enter that code online and now you're legit. It makes it a lot more difficult (but...

    Am I about to get scammed?

    The last time I sold a GPU on eBay it was won by someone in the country of Georgia. I specifically set the auction options to only ship to US addresses. When he paid via Paypal it listed an unverified re-shipper's address in NJ. Paypal recommends sitting on the goods until the funds are...

    Old Core2 duo, could it?

    Another vote for a Pi 4 - and this might be interesting to the tinkerers among us https://www.worproject.ml/ "Windows on Raspberry; Get the full desktop experience on your Raspberry Pi" Second choice, if you're just talking about a media consumption device, would be any of the Roku or Amazon...

    3DFX Voodoo 5 5500 AGP - 2 options, full box

    I still have a Voodoo3 2000 PCI in my beige Mac G3. It was the first discreet video card I ever purchased, and has outlived them all.

    Reverb G2 Warning

    I had the typical USB problems on my X570/3700X combo but I had a PCIE USB3 card that solved it. Has been solid for the 4 weeks I've had it. I did take advantage of the reviews complaining about the HMD cable and I used Velcro cable wrap to affix the cable to the headstrap immediately before...

    What printers do you all use?

    We've been buying up all the Stratasys Dimension SST printers within about 250 miles. 2x 768 SST, 2x 1200 SST, 2x 1200 ES. Companies and schools are dumping them for $2000-5000. Don't pay a penny more, the deals are out there if you can wait for one. Still searching for a suitable soluable...

    haha I know right. I figured after so much time had passed someone would realize it. I couldn't let the myth live on!

    I deep fried my computer, literally!

    Does nobody notice the black cable going under the pan to something white with a rounded edge - almost like an electric hot plate...? No black cables go into the pan over the sides and the PSU is powered from the opposite side of the pic. You've been duped.

    I don't require any level of performance. I was fine at 20-30MB/s before. It can run backups for as long as it takes.

    2TB NAS, mirrored, educate me

    I should mention that in the summer here, the inside of the house can reach 83F/29C in open living areas for 8-10 hours. I presume the closet's upper corner is worse. I have a digital IR thermometer that tells me the wall/ceiling outside of the closet it 26C right now, and the corner where I...

    2TB NAS, mirrored, educate me

    I hear you. The only single part I don't have is an ATX case smaller than a 4-bay mini tower. My concern with an old PC is heat management. In the area I need it, it is the top corner of a closet with a closed door. Not enough air circulation to expect reasonable uptime from an AMD Athlon 64...

    2TB NAS, mirrored, educate me

    This is great info, thanks guys. It seems the Synology is getting popular. Reading some reviews on Amazon and Newegg, people are impressed with the interface. But have they been around long enough to determine if the products can endure 24/7/365.

    My better half is filling up 32GB SD cards with pictures almost weekly. We each have plenty of internal drive space (after we junk the bad pics!), and I want a second storage location for redundancy. I had a Lacie Big Disk 2TB (4x500) Ethernet but it failed (logically) nearly every 6 months...

    Lost...BF3 crashing (gtx570 driver restarts)

    I've been having the exact same problem since I got this 570 less than a month ago. Good to know it could be solved with a simple V tweak. I was curious why my Galaxy 460 1GB ran at 1.012 stock and the EVGA 570 (standard ed.) defaults to less than 0.980.

    Intel Sandy Bridge 2600K and 2500K Processors @ [H]

    I just got a 2600k, ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3 and 16GB Corsair Vengeance 12800. Running like a dream, 10C cooler than my Q9300 at nearly same clocks (3.3 vs 3.4). The mobo will support Ivy Bridge later on, too. But you could easily do all that on a 2500k. With a solid overclock, they're...

    GTX 460 > PSU - halp

    Just wanted to follow up, the GTX 460 is working very well with the Antec EA650. I've also installed an Antec Kuhler 920 unit and OC the CPU to 3.3GHz 24/7 stable.

    GTX 460 > PSU - halp

    You're right that I shouldn't expect years out of the Thermaltake, but it has lasted since June 18, 2007 in three different builds. Call me lucky I guess. That's looking like a real nice deal at a good savings under the SeaSonic 520wt someone else recommended elsewhere.

    GTX 460 > PSU - halp

    Thanks Profumo. I listed the dual 12v output in my details (14A+15A) which is under 350w by my calculator's calculations. I'd like to spend less than $75; modular cables and silent are not requirements.

    GTX 460 > PSU - halp

    In an effort to prepare for BF3 carnage, and to take advantage of Adobe Mercury Playback Engine, I have ordered a GTX 460 1GB to replace my HD 3870 512MB. Within an hour I realized my Thermaltake 430W we're all familiar with won't have enough juice to set the pixels loose. Now that I've blown...

    Can someone please fix this CSS menu?

    I'm implementing a CSS menu in a Drupal site and it's giving me fits. I've been trying to chase the demons with FireBug but I can't take it anymore - white flag! Included HTML and CSS that I've hacked up trying to chase the issue. The goal is to have the child drop down when you hover over...

    AutoDesk AliasSTUDIO - Radeon or GeForce?

    Any word on a CUDA add-on card?

    I know about the PhysX add-on cards from AEGIA before nVidia bought them out, but what about add-on cards that include CUDA capability for things like Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe video production products? I know I could drop coin on a new GeForce card, obviously, but I don't need a big...

    The Modern Warfare 2 Killer - A Poll

    As a former Battlefield series clan member turned occasional gamer, BFBC2 was a disappointment. I know how the game was meant to be played, but among a bunch of random gamers the whole teamplay aspect is essentially lost. Sometimes you can go hours without a decent team experience due to too...
