    Over-ear headphones that are comfortable for long periods?

    I purchased a set of Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 Ohms and I'm returning them after 2 hours, for two reasons. 1. My ears get stupid hot with them after 5 minutes. 2. Audio sounds like trash with any equalizer adjustment at higher volume with the Sound Blaster AE-5. This may not be a problem for...

    PC games/apps crashing -> Memtest errors all 4 sticks of RAM?

    Back in the DDR2 days, I had ram sticks that didn't like working in dual channel mode, would pass with flying colors on single sticks but fail when you added a 2nd. Took me a minute to figure that out the first time it happened, did an RMA with Corsair at the time and got new sticks, all was...

    Do people actually upgrade just the CPU and keep using existing motherboard?

    That's my issue as well now days. I went from x99 to 10th gen. On my X99 I went from a 5930k to a 5960X which helped me from having upgrade right away, I was waiting for Zen 3 but by the time I was ready I couldn't get my hands on a CPU I wanted. Until sandy bridge I use to upgrade every year...

    I wish they would do that with our apps. They finally get it right then a month later, "here brand new from the ground up version" that breaks everything! But yeah, you're right. It's just when it goes down, it's our fault. lol

    Listen, it took me 2 years of bitching about the CyberPower 2200VA (4 per rack) randomly crapping out taking 1/4 of the rack down every Wednesday's (Generator switch over every week) to get a APC Symmetra PX 80kW installed. It took another year to FINIALLY start getting newer servers with real...

    We still have well over 150 of those and 5015's (P4 socket 775 versions). Most of them still work, some have dead power supplies, 2-3 have dead boards.

    Are traditional HDDs still the preferred storage drive vs SSD?

    I want to move to SSD storage but I would need at least 2, 8TB SSD in raid 1 for a bit of piece of mind. I also have a external that I plug in once in a while for cold storage for important stuff.

BestBuy is a different story, they make sure. I had a factory sealed item that I didn't open and they opened it...

    Reminds me back in the day when CS 1.6 came out, I downloaded a cheat, and join a I kid you not, a cheat only server with VAC disabled. It was hilarious for about 15-30 minutes. Left and forgot I left it on when I joined a VAC server to play with a buddy. I had it on for 1 round before I was...

    HP DL380p Gen9 PSU question

    The gen 8's were quiet so I'm sure the gen 9's are just as quiet. We use to have a loud server room and we moved to gen 8's and it drop the noise level by half
