    Deck Accessories? Skins\Shells\Docks\etc tell us what we must have and post what you have. Likes\Dislikes etc.

    I ordered a killswitch but I really like the case that came with my 512GB so I use that and a Deckmate, the injection molded one is very nice and holds 2 SD cards and a receptacle for things. A couple of things are available to interface with that receptacle and I selected a kickstand. It works...

    What are you playing on your deck?

    Valheim works fine and you can spawn items into the game via console commands in singleplayer to make it easier then carry it into multiplayer servers on your own local server. We run one on our plex and crap box that is not listed in the browser and requires pasting in some stuff but it works...

    Best/worst computer brands.

    Rather than build computers for people these days I just send them links to Puget Systems and System76 depending on their linux proficiency and affinity for woodgrain desktops. There are so many pins to unbend nowadays I just don't want to do it anymore. I thought I might have a stroke while...

    Picking a gaming laptop from Costco

    Laptops get loud af when editing video in my experience and heavily caution a desktop computer since big fans can move enough air at lower rpm than little squirrel cage minion fans can at all the rpm. It's also easier to connect oodles of monitors to a desktop and a good desktop only requires...

    Received a Dead Deck

    The fan is for sale on ifixit, and good fans are out there. I can barely hear mine unless I'm outside in the Arkansas sun and there's nothing else going on around me (almost never).

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    I live in AR and it gets about as hot here as it does in eastern TX, and much of AR is considered to be an extension of eastern TX by many residents. I haven't tried to run it in a non-airconditioned environment yet but in my 72 degrees office it works great, as well as in air conditioned cars...

    Serious Steam Deck Software Flaw Gone Unsolved Since Launch (WiFi issues)

    I haven't had a problem with the onboard wifi but I've only had it since Sunday. It downloads things at about 70 MB/s when in line of sight of a wifi 6 AP and in the 60's everywhere else in our house except in the laundry room (hordes of plumbing and wires plus the 2 200a meters and 4 breaker...

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    When heavy lightning storms bear down on our locality we either shut down all the expensive computers and turn the breaker that the network stuff uses off. Due to geography and what's built on a higher point nearby I'm not worried about strikes on my building as much as things being conducted on...

    PCi-E Bifurcation on the Asus Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI - how crazy can I actually get?

    Why not use a dolly to cart that thing around? I used to do that when my shoulder was out of action for almost a year. Some dollies are fancy and make loading into conveyances easier, you could also use simple machines. I built one for this to load 90lb dogs into my mom's v8 suvs in the 90s...

    Worth it to "upgrade" from p8p67 rev 3.1 to Asus p8z77-v deluxe for overclocking?

    I built my wife her first proper gaming rig in the first week of August 2012 before we were married, and it's 2500k ran at 5ghz from then until sometime in 2017 it started to no longer be stable at that frequency and was running at 4.88 something ghz when it was replaced with a 9900k rig in July...

    Minecraft Bans NFTs/Blockchain, Mojang Doesn’t Want “Profiteering” or “Have and Have-Nots”

    This is the United States where there might be more guns than there are people, and so many houses have gun safes. Ours is f'in huge and when children are around wallets go into it. You could achieve something similar with a smaller strong box of some kind.

    Anybody using a SN700 Red drive as a cache with a NVMe HBA?

    I think people use them where other people would put a higher speed nic or something in synology and their competitors' boxes. I've never seen it used as you describe but that doesn't mean it's impossible. I had a synology and built another linux server when I outgrew it instead of buying...

    Video game sales set to fall for first time in years as industry braces for recession

    Total war buoys the economy some, I wouldn't hold out for the lack of that before a proper depression. I do hope the offline gaming improves a little before that though.

    Ubisoft disabling online service for multiple older games, which will make DLC unavailable

    I like fleet boats though, type vii is a turd with no air conditioning and less fuel and torpedoes. Plus there were hordes of reasonable people on the ships the Nazis sank, but when you're fighting the japs I think it would go down easier since they were mostly all bug eyed crazy by the time the...

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    I like to have overengineered cooling for when the air conditioning is broken and pandemic-era parts shortages yield window units for an indeterminate amount of time to keep mold from destroying your house. I also like to play videogames outside sometimes. I learned this with one of the nvidia...

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    When your old computer becomes your server a case with a lot of 3.5" slots is your friend, you just buy as many and as large disks you're comfortable resilvering with when they die and there is your new server. bonus points for pcie cache and faster nic(s), and as much ram as you can address.
