    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Glad I am amusing you. But once again, your urbane yet somehow utterly inscrutable meandering banality when it comes to having a coherent conversation here leads me to believe you are either a bot, someone on some pretty serious drugs, or someone that is not in full command of the English...

    OK, maybe not so much obtuse, more the chicken little "sky is falling" gas lighting vibe then. Go back through the entire thread and read all of his posts. Just sort of fed up with folks that don't own OLED panels parroting/trolling the same overblown FUD. I've owned an LG OLED panel which...

    Paying just over 4.5 times as much for something still qualifies as "significantly more" in my book. But all relative to how much is in your wallet to begin with I guess. :D

    In this particular case - much greater distance/length, it's not so much the "quality" of the cable as the tech going into it that actually supports making it work. Yes, you are going to have to open up the wallet because built-in active repeater tech / embedded optical conversion is definitely...

    Agreed - get an Ultra HDMI Certified cable that‘s rated for 48Gbps, 4K @ 120hz. I picked this one up off of Amazon for ~$12 and it is working great.

    Since the C2 is a "smart TV", it appears that someone has also figured out a way to power an LG OLED TV on or off (so long as it is connected to a network) via the PC. Nice option if you don't want to have to always resort to using the remote: https://github.com/JPersson77/LGTVCompanion

    Got the LG Service Remote off of Amazon for $8. (Thanks for the suggestion Lateralus!) Turned off dimming (yellow circled options in the service menu). Also confirmed that I've got the latest and greatest EVO LG panel!

    6800/6900 Overclock Results

    I recall commenting quite some time ago on how close the 6800/6900 scores were to my 3090 score, but I wasn’t making an entry myself - just posted my 3090’s score in comparison to show how similar they were. All good though! :D

    Ditto - now that I have the 42" C2 and see first hand what it is capable of when used as a monitor, no regrets here at all - would buy it again in a heartbeat. I'm not on it all day - and with a few tweaks like enabling the screen saver in windows again and having the task bar auto-hide when...

    It's pretty easy to just turn evertything off in the menus when it comes to advertising, live plus, suggested content, etc., and then just leaving the wireless up for patch/update notification as well as to actually performing them. Fumbling with a USB stick to do it manually is a choice though...

    Just to add, VESA pattern sizes for TV and monitor mounts are typically: 50 x 50mm, 75 x 75mm, 100 x 100mm, 200 x 200mm, 300 x 200mm, 300 x 300mm, 400 x 200mm, 400 x 300mm, or 400 x 400mm. Adapter plates are pretty cheap (~$13) if you don't have an exact match. The 42" C2 only weighs ~20lbs...

    So, just got my 42" C2 yesterday via Amazon. Fantastic monitor - really nice upgrade. Also a tight, but still workable fit for my desk. Love it! My only real gripe is that the stand/feet it comes with are not adjustable. I get this is sold as a "TV", but I have a feeling that most folks...

    Broke down and ordered the C2 off Amazon today. 42" is what I would consider the perfect size for the upper end of a large desk monitor. The 48" C1 offering just struck me as a little too big. I've been running a 32" 4K Acer (XB321HK) for the last few years... time for a nice upgrade!

    Same. Still worth it though for a few that I was sort of interested in, but normally wouldn't have picked up. Great cause just makes it that much more of a no brainer. I've already donated through quite a few other means (Ukrainian AirB&B's, Ukrainian Red Cross that work happens to match 1:1...

    What game have you put the most time into?

    Everquest back in the day (Roughly 20 years ago). Dumped well over a year's worth of time played hours into it... and that was in well under 3 years of playing... Gave up MMORPGs for good soon after upon realizing this.

    Are there earbuds that sound as good as my Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 Ohm ?

    IEMs that sound really good can be had in all kinds of price ranges…. However, unlike over the ear headphones or earbuds, the fit and especially the seal inside of your outer ear canal is especially important. Without a proper fit and seal, almost all IEMs will sound like crap. I’m surprised...

    Attention flashlight nerds. Opple Lightmaster Pro $20.61

    They are options out there if you hunt for them, but I'm primarily using a mix of 3000k and 5000K 100w Feit dimmable bulbs (90 CRI) from Costco.

    Attention flashlight nerds. Opple Lightmaster Pro $20.61

    Same here. Yup, it's tough to find good high CRI bulbs for cheap, but they are out there if you search... most come at a good up-charge though due to the better binning/higher quality emitter costs. Feit bulbs (via Costco) have been pretty decent. I find bulbs in the 2000-2700K range a bit...

    Which monitor manufacture is good?

    Many also source the exact same panel, just go different routes as to coating, bezel, extra features, etc. Brand doesn't always mean best where/when different models are being looked at/compared.

    Would it be naïve to sell my Vega 56 for $$$ to buy a better card "when" prices fall again?

    I hated dropping $1799 on a Strix 3090 a year ago... but seeing where everything is at now, I'm really glad I did. GPU prices are bonkers now - if you can find one that is!

    Best Simulation peripherals? Driving, flying, etc.

    Stand alone it's pretty damn good... quite impressive. But if you have a beefy enough PC/GPU to drive it well tethered using some of the latest, more robust VR titles, it becomes pretty mind blowing. Especially for some of the bigger sims like MS Flight Simulator 2020.

    Best Simulation peripherals? Driving, flying, etc.

    Thanks! Still enjoying it with my Valve Index - just wish newer, more capable, and cheaper VR HMD tech would hit! Maybe in the next year or two…. Quest 2 just doesn’t seem that big a jump. The Varjo XR3 has raised the bar as to possibilities… Hoping some of their tech/improvements trickle...

    Would it be naïve to sell my Vega 56 for $$$ to buy a better card "when" prices fall again?

    Prices are definitely falling… falling upwards. I seriously doubt we can count on any GPU “bargains” for at least a few more years… at least not until supply/demand is fixed. Also doesn’t help that foundry/die production facilities are overbooked, COVID keeps hanging around, China is still...

    Am I analyzing this correctly when comparing my 5950x to the 12900k?

    I've been running my 5950x for almost a year now... took Intel that long to close that performance gap. But they still aren't quite there yet when it comes to overall power use/efficiency. Still, competition is a good thing here, and I welcome it. The next round of releases from AMD will...

    I've got an external USB DAC/AMP combo (O2/Objective Amp) - really prefer it over mb sound or an add-on internal sound card. If I'm breaking out the high-end IEMs or cans for some critical listening though, I'm switching over to my standalone music DAP... Hard to beat a distortion value of...
