    PCIe SSDs Will Overtake SATA in 2019

    I agree, but how many average consumers have even two hard drives much less 4+.

    Paramount Is Urging Theaters to Show Ang Lee's New Sci-Fi Movie at 120 FPS

    I prefer higher frame rate very much. So much better I hate watching 24fps movies now.

    First custom loop, mostly in.

    Got the second card water cooled, added uv lights to the res, added xspc temp sensor just after pump befor radiators. Still fighting with bios to speed control fans from water temp. I can see the temp, bios set to use that temp, but fan speeds don't adjust.

    MSI Gaming Monitor Stops a Stray Bullet (and Still Works)

    Yeah, even a .25acp would tear through a modern monitor. Now if a old 21" trinitron got it right in the coil from the back, I'd say it would stop a .25acp easy enough.

    Asus crosshair VII w_in temp fan control

    I'm having problems using Qfan in the bios to control fan speeds based on temperature reading of my cooling loop. All PWM. I have an xspc temp sensor connected to the w_in temp port on the mobo. In the bios or in windows I can see the temp. The temp readouts look correct to me. Right at ambient...

    UV dye? Recommendations experiances?

    I'll give that a look, thanks.

    UV dye? Recommendations experiances?

    I want the water in the reservoir to glow from uv. If it's the resivoir glass/plastic glowing instead, I'd probably be happy with that. I only have uv illumination shining (shielded and focused) on the resivoir. No other uv lights. I'm using an ekwb combo d5 pump and resivoir. Not sure how easy...

    UV dye? Recommendations experiances?

    That would be safer. I'm not looking for the water in the tubes or blocks to glow though. I only want uv lights in/on the reservoir.

    UV dye? Recommendations experiances?

    Looking for UV dye. Preferably fluoresces blue, and is clear or slightly blue in normal light. I'm not finding many reviews of these. The ones I fi d are often contradictory. Some say the die was immediately dark brown with no fluorescence. Some say worked great for a few hours then stopped...

    Password Manager Vulnerabilities Exposed

    yes. If a browser has to send the password to a website, then the browser has to decrypt its stored passwords to send to the web site. You can't trust the browsers own code for that if the computer is fully compromised. As for sending a still encrypted password, if you can do that, then the...

    Password Manager Vulnerabilities Exposed

    The problem is how does the app enter that password into another app? Has to be decrypted for that. If the other app accepts the encrypted password... well then all you need to steal is the encrypted password.

    Password Manager Vulnerabilities Exposed

    Not defending these applications, but there is truth to the point that you can't completely securely 100% pass data from one app to another inside a compromised digital computer if the attacker can run any code/instructions at any level. Maybe with coordinated single pad encryption, but that's a...

    First custom loop, mostly in.

    Almost dead silent. With the 1080ti (it's a EVGA black), and the 2700x, I never need to get the fans past like 30%. So, I don't think it would much matter what fans they were at that speed. The 120's are the ~older duel ball bearing ones, but spinning at like 480rpm. The 140's are newer and also...

    Post Your Workstations 2018

    Work in progress. Need to make shelves for left side, adjust where the light switch is (raise it an inch or so), add second GPU block. The chest on the left is the sub (image dynamics 10" with a 250w plate amp).

    First custom loop, mostly in.

    I need to get one more GPU block, but here is where I am so far. I got it up and running. Temps are great so far. 2700x, and 1 1080ti in the loop. Will be adding the second one in soon. All ekwb stuff. Got a little bit of sale price. Pe 360 Se 420 D5 pump * Edit- Added second block.

    Diy second rad mount for TT p3

    Adding a custom water loop to my p3 case in stages. Getting ready to add another GPU block. Wanted more than a 360 rad for it to stay cool. I'm adding a 420mm rad at a 45 deg angle along the top. Using black iron pipe to support it. I needed a way to attack the rad to the pipe. I looked at...

    One of the Biggest At-Home DNA Testing Companies Is Working with the FBI

    True, but DNA matching used for criminal cases don't 100% match every nucleotides place. They look for similar areas. At that level, there are quiet a few matches in people even with people that are not remotely related.

    Tesla Launches Cheaper Cars With Software Limited Batteries

    Well, yeah. In this case, it's not a bad decision. Many people buy as much car as they can afford. If they cant afford the model they want, but can afford one 8k less... this gives that option. 6 months or a year later theyha some more cash and can afford to pay the 8k, or finance, to unlock...

    Bethesda Releases Patch 5 for Fallout 76

    I'm sure it's a shock to Bethesda developers that fans are not releasing patches to fix all the bugs. I mean that's how Bethesda games always worked before. "Ooo, we cant do that with an mmo? Dang, what do we do?"

    GDC Releases Its State of the Game Industry 2019 Report

    Uhm.. not following you. Can you clarify for me? Were you saying you like or don't like that companies can request workers from unions based on what they need? Seemed like you said you don't like unions but then said you like that they can work like that. To clarify, being union has nothing to...

    Thinking of moving to a custom loop. A few questions.

    Ah, yeah, that would explain it. There are 3 drive cages right behind the rad mount. I've thought about doing the same thing.

    Thinking of moving to a custom loop. A few questions.

    Was the dremel work to remove the grate and drive mounts for better airflow? Seems a 420 would bolt right onto the p3.

    Thinking of moving to a custom loop. A few questions.

    Thanks, good info. I may start with a single 420mm, and run 6 fans on it. From a few testing data posts I saw running fans on both sides lowers tempts by up to 15-20%, particularly when the temp deltas are on the high side. In my case, I'd use that for lowered db. Maybe get 2 or 3db less. If...

    Thinking of moving to a custom loop. A few questions.

    Bethesda Confirms Fallout 76 Developer Room Bans

    O, I like that. put hidden stats on the item so that it counteracts any damge/buffs it does. Also put on a negative item drop modifier or something. ha. make it untradeable, but delete-able. Players will drop them pretty quickly. Though a few might keep them just for the novelty, but it won't...

    Bethesda Confirms Fallout 76 Developer Room Bans

    ... As a developer, not saying I'm great at it ;), how odd of a DB can they have that it can't be fixed by removing the items from player inventory? Change the stats to something negative, etc. Do they have no ability to edit or remove items existing in the game? Cause who in this day could...
