    NZXT H1 case recalled due to fire hazard

    More follow up. I have the NZXT H1 (V1). The fire issue was really annoying, but I received the "good" replacement riser and was pretty happy with the support. Fast forward to this weekend. The system kept overheat protection tripping/cycling. The AIO pump was working, fan was blowing, and...

    New AMD CPU patent reveals 3D-stacked machine learning accelerator design

    Just to be upfront, not bagging on the poster, but the article itself. Such a horribly written article. I wish these people would do a little studying on how the patent office works before they write. Online journalism has steadily been going downhill, but wccftech was already at the bottom...

    The Streamline is a Lie

    I find it fitting that even if Nvidia is being benevolent with this move, it fails because so many are too skeptical due to their past bullshit shenanigans.

    6900 xt won’t boot on PCIE1

    I had similar issue with a 5700 and an ASUS 11 series board. I should revisit this on my board to see if I can find some insight.

    Gabe Newell hand delivers first Steam Decks

    I would probably agree with this in regards to GabeN. he is totally richer than jeebus and answers to no one, so I guess he can do that.

    Recommendation for mATX chassis

    It does the job. I generally don't push the PC that it is in that frequently. I use it primarily for VR, and as a server for Steam In Home Streaming. I wanted something relatively quiet and non-rgb. discrete to be put in the corner and forgotten. so in that respect, it has been very good.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    At announcement, I was skeptical, but valve is making me believe. You have to applaud Valve's focus. I guess being a private company with a money printing machine (steam), they can afford to focus for 10+ years on bringing games to a non-windows portable gaming machine. I'm really interested...

    Recommendation for mATX chassis

    why does case makers (and motherboard makers) hate mATX? i find the selection of both cases and boards lacking. some of us dont want ITX and dont need eATX.

    Recommendation for mATX chassis

    also looking at Coolermaster Silencio S400. looks like it MAY have a little more clearance at the top, but my some reviews, the thermals arent that great. Assuming board will fit in either, I'm looking at both features/performance as a wash. Should I chose on price and move on with my life...

    Recommendation for mATX chassis

    Thanks for interpreting that for me. Ugh, so that cable header has to fit under the radiator. Assembly has to be very purposeful. 4cm may be do able. I will measure. thanks.

    Recommendation for mATX chassis

    Wanting to rehome my mATX build but I am so out of the loop on the good enclosure solutions. I'm looking for mid tower (non ATX or larger). mATX boards or itx. Top mount 240 radiator. Limited or no RGB. and no glass. I was looking at fractal define mini C as it checks most of those boxes...

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    I watched the steam deck teardown video where they disclaimed everything. in showing the 2230 M.2 drive, was there anything unique about it? they mentioned something about selecting it for thermals, etc. but shouldnt any 2230 m.2 drive work?

    Google loses patent case against Sonos, will remove features from Nest and Chromecast products

    You can't evaluate it in "today's world." The priority patent application was filed in 2003. That's the state of the art you have to examine the patent application in. Today, sure - not patentable. in 2003, quite possibly - patentable.

    Google loses patent case against Sonos, will remove features from Nest and Chromecast products

    I challenge you to visit the USPTO's public PAIR system (look up application number 14/628952, which is the first of the asserted patents US9,967,615), and read through the image file wrapper, and then with a straight face, say this was "Rubber Stamped."

    Google loses patent case against Sonos, will remove features from Nest and Chromecast products

    For those arguing that this was obvious, was it obvious in 2003? The priority date of the original filings relating to the patents in this case go back THAT far. In 2022, yes, it would probably be obvious, but in 2003/2004, my guess is probably not (especially with the breadth of granted...

    HOT!! Intel Core i5-12600K $250 (MC in store only)

    in my brain, i read that as I5-2600K for 250. which wasn't even a real chip (either i5-2500K, or i7-2600k). but shows how supply chain has screwed up my perspective.

    Halo Infinite becomes most-played Xbox game on Steam ever in under 24 hours

    I'm not going to play it - just not my type of game - but I applaud MS for releasing on Steam. Microsoft store is a freaking PITA. My kids play minecraft through that - and half the time some middleware (MS Gaming Services, etc) fails to load/update properly with no clear indication of what...

    Bill Being Pushed to Outlaw Bots From Snatching Up Online Goods

    I hate bots+scalpers as much as the other guy, but this is just dumb. It would be better if these elected officials would focus on improving/helping supply chain issues that are causing the scarcity in the first place.
