    Olsson Ruby Nozzle

    Wow, this nozzle is really good. http://olssonruby.com/ I don't work for them at all. It's a pain for me to keep switching nozzles when printing abrasive materials such as carbon fiber. With this nozzle, you just set it and you don't have to change it again. Carbon fiber filament wears on...

    Moai 200 SLA Printer

    Any thoughts about this printer? https://all3dp.com/1/next-big-thing-desktop-sla-peopoly-introduces-moai-200/ The resins are slowly becoming less and less smelly from what I've heard. With a printer that does a fairly large size, I'm definitely interested. It does 200x200x200. My Prusa Mk3...

    Additional cooling for Prusa MK2?

    I think my prints are curling from not enough cooling. Is there any adverse effects if I just put a box fan blowing on the print? Should I turn off the bed heating after a few layers? Large prints aren't successful with PLA unfortunately.

    Build a home theater system or just buy a Bose Lifestyle 650?

    Ok, I just bought a house that I'm pretty much only keeping the 4 walls. I'm looking for a home theater setup. I went looking for speakers that I could keep in the walls and the price was rather higher than the Lifestyle setup. There's a few pros and con's I see: Custom System Pro: Flush...

    Migration to new X99, old RAID 5 still good?

    I'm thinking of migrating to the X99 platform. My motherboard has some issues now. It's currently hooked up as a RAID 5 on my Asus Rampage IV BE. Will it still work? Or do I have to just wait for the RMA to come back? I didn't want to upgrade now but this computer has been only built for 2...

    6800k vs 6850k

    My computer keeps dropping the USB ports. Motherboard might be on it's way out. Asus Rampage IV BE. Looking to upgrade. I'm just wondering if it is worth it to go to a 6800k or a 6850k. Price is about 200 dollars more for the 6850k. The biggest difference is the PCI Lanes. How does more...

    GTX 1080 STRIX SLI worth it for non-4k?

    I'm playing on a Acer x34 Predator monitor and it's maxed out at 1440p res and 100hz. Is it worth it to get another gtx 1080? I only play Overwatch, Witcher 3 and Tomb Raider. I can't get 100fps with tomb raider with widescreen 1440p and I doubt even if I added another card, I don't think...

    Algae? Advice?

    I built this rig about a year or so ago and I've drained it about every year. I replaced both RX480's due to them leaking. I flush the new radiators with distilled always. Looks like something ended up growing. Maybe not enough PT-nuke since I have a fairly significant size loop. See sig...

    AIO Geforce GTX 1080 Hybrid Release date?

    I'm curious when this is due to be released. From the reviews that I've been reading, this card runs rather hot and unless it's water cooled or with an AIO hybrid, the card would throttle. Thanks!

    Nvidia Shield Console

    I'm thinking of picking this thing up. Problem is that it doesn't output optical (Toslink). It has a USB that can be hooked up to DAC's. Nvidia hasn't provided a list of what DAC's are compatible. I bought a Peachtree Audio X1 Asynchronous 24/192 USB to SPDIF Converter on Amazon to see if it...

    Using own router with Verizon Fios

    2nd pump?

    Ok based on this article: http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/the-watercooling-guide-from-a-to-z.180876/ I read adding another pump dumps a bit of heat. Will this cause water to evaporate faster than usual? Or maybe I can rearrange my loop to be more effective. Currently this is...

    Water evaporating?

    I've been running my setup for a while. I notice that I'm having to fill the water quite a bit more than I used to. Some people are telling me it's evaporation. There are no leaks. I'm having to fill the res about once every two weeks. The only thing I think it could be is that the cap...

    Upgrading ram, should I do it?

    Ok, so I've been running 4 sticks of 1866 G.Skill ram (16gbs) for as long as I can remember. Since moving a 4930k setup and a tri-fire 290x, this has been left untouched. Will upgrading the ram to a faster ram show or have any noticeable difference? I've oc'ed my system to 4.5ghz and it...

    xintensity settings and high stales

    Tri-Fire R9 290x, 1200W PSU sufficient?

    I have a Corsair 1200w psu, is it possible to run three R9's? I'm not doing 4 but if it's 300W per card, it's 900W right there already. I have no idea how much juice my overclocked 2700k is pulling. Should I get another psu to support this card?
