    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    Well shit. I got the email today for the 512, they took my money. I pre-ordered day 1 within first couple of hours. Only what, a year wait?

    Crucial Ballistix is officially dead

    I just want naked ram modules with same specs as the ballistix; not a fan of the gaudy heatsinks and RGB. The naked ram modules the manufacturers sell now are always the bottom of the barrel timings.

    Notebook Review and Forums closing 1/31/2022

    Wow, counted on tons of reviews from that site. I remember a great user base on the forums, many laptop issues and mods are model specific so tons of info hidden in the forums. I didn't realize they were in trouble.

    What I care about.... are these new 3080's going to be intentionally LHR limited?

    Anyone running their 3080/3090 with a vertical GPU mount?

    I run a 3080 vertical in a o11d with the EK vertical (standard) kit. I run all fan positions and had to change my fan orientation for bottom fans to exhaust and side fans to intake but overall pretty happy with the results in the case (when I kept my original fan orientation I got worse temps)...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Playstation & Xbox - $10 @ Target

    FYI Double dipped last time this was this price at BB; bought on release day for PC ofc. Found out that there is no user-definable FOV like on PC. For a guy who gets motion sick too easily I can't really play it on console as a result. Maybe they will add it later, probably not.

    So is all this madness still in full swing?

    I'm super behind on the insider info but.... secondary market prices dipped and went back up slightly. LHR cards have been partially un-LHR'd by way of mining software update. There's other news about manufacturing fab costs going up and I swear I saw something about memory prices coming down...

    Xbox Series S was available all day on 7/23 must have had a ton of stock come in (old post locked)

    I love my S but the internal nvme allows enough disk space for maybe 2-3 AAA games and the 1tb upgrade costs $190-$220 which is more than half the cost of the system. Desparate for space, I installed an external 2tb slow-bro laptop drive today with a $10 usb3 interface and will see how it does...

    Identify a used GPU card that was used in mining?

    Can you tell physically or even via software if a CPU has been undervolted and overclocked? Same difference really. Any miner worth their salt will undervolt to save electricity and max out the overclock on the memory to maximize hashrate. AMD GPU's have needed bios hacks to bypass limits but...

    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    My issue is. How can we be sure that these cards aren't gimped somewhere else or will be gimped sometime else in the future? How would you like buying a car and not getting the full performance out of the thing that you paid for? I guess Dieselgate is an interesting example of that. Who...

    MSI X570 Tomahawk review: possibly the best $200 X570

    Anyone have issues using XMP with this board? Using run of the mill t-force ddr4 and system seemed less stable using XMP. My BIOS is older, I should update it.

    Fry's Electronics permanently closing Feb 24, 2021

    Frys was honestly dead long before covid hit, they had embarrassingly barren shelves for quite some time. Great memories though, our store always had some particularly attractive returns employees.

    Ebay charges tax?

    Yeah it's the worst. You pay tax on what you buy and from the selling side their fees and payments changes make it just that much better.

    Time to Take Moore's Law is Dead Nvidia Article Seriously...

    We need guys like MLID to talk about elephants in the room but.... If stock was so low that AIB cards sold out as fast as FE cards, I don't exactly see how nvidia is rolling in the dough any more or less than with other launches.

    IKEA Partners with ASUS' Republic of Gamers Brand for Gaming Furniture

    I shouldn't be so mad about this but Ikea's processes really couldn't handle the demand for furniture well during these past few months. I had to axe my dreams of a big ass ikea desk after striking out through June and July and checking their online stock daily. They also have a history of...

    EVGA B-stock 1080ti $349

    Felt like it was a good time to snag a 1080ti FTW3 which will supplant a 1660ti; honestly overkill since I don't play anything near cutting edge titles but I upgraded to a 1440p 144hz monitor this year. $350 is a stretch in my book but I just can't see the 2 series dropping that hard until the...

    Prolimitech Megahalems on AM4

    I've got an old skool Prolimitech Megahalems heatsink I'd like to adapt to AM4. Prolimitech no longer supports for AM4 but hoping a cooler master or Noctua mounting kit might be a viable solution... anyone have any experience or advice? Board would be b450 Tomahawk. All I have found is this...

    The Nintendo 64 Classic Could Be Arriving Soon

    The real value is the upscaling capability of these things. N64 is not so easy to get the best p.q. out of so this is a much cheaper and easier route.
