    Commercial Tubing that Doesn't Leach Plasticizer?

    Sadly the thinner wall stuff will kink very easily if you try to bend it. Yeah that's kind of crazy expensive. You might be able to source more reasonably priced industrial tubing from a local hardware store. Basically you are just looking for something made out of neoprene/norprene/EPDM. I...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Except 30-series wasn't really lower price points when you compare apples to apples. What was the 3080? Well Nvidia kept comparing it to the 2080, not the 2080 Ti, so I posit it is the 2080 replacement. So what was the 2080 Ti replacement? Well that was the 3090. Despite marketing rhetoric, it...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    This one made no sense to me either. Why would they spend so much money buying a test facility when their whole channel is aimed around dumbass ideas, lowest common denominator stuff, and overall marketing/sponsored content that would really run counter and pose as a conflict of interest to a...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Hey we could have fun with that. Grab a fake southern accent and call up Newegg... "Now listen, this here is Roy D. Mercer, and I bought one of ya'lls graphic cards and we got ourselves a bit of a problem here. I'm gonna need about $2000, or someone's gonna get their ass whupped!"

    3yrs later I still had plastic on my EVGA 2080Ti Black

    I do too, but sometimes there can be films that aren't obvious and are missed.

    Commercial Tubing that Doesn't Leach Plasticizer?

    Something that won't leach substances? Let me introduce you to the last flexible tubing you'll ever need: US Plastics Tygon A-60-G This tubing is made out of norprene. There is no plasticizer, and it is properly to ID/OD spec, unlike some water-cooling "zero maintenance" tubings like what EK...

    JustGPU.com - Newegg's new GPU-only site

    Oh I don't disagree. I am sort of blaming that whole chain starting with Nvidia and AMD. Greedy, greedy, greedy.

    JustGPU.com - Newegg's new GPU-only site

    To be fair to Steve, I have never heard anyone call 1440p, 2k. But really, not much of a thing to harp about. All I'd harp on, is that fact that they, Newegg, got caught holding the bag on tons of unsold GPUs and really at this stage of the game, prices should still be better than they are...

    3yrs later I still had plastic on my EVGA 2080Ti Black

    When I first installed my Dark Hero, I didn't realize there was plastic film on some of the heatsinks. ASUS had put them on well, only noticed when I scratched one and thought I had scratched the heatsink.

    Current state of drivers AMD/nVidia?

    Nvidia has historically had some pretty major driver problems, yet no one remembers them. Yet people remember driver problems they had in 2004 on Radeon. I agree with your conclusion. You can have problems with either. I was put off by AMD drivers with the RX 5000 cards, but that seems to not...

    Cool, will play around with HWinfo then and see what I can work out.

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    Would that be in the Monitor section? They appear to be. Data is showing there. (RPMs for the pump, will have to doublecheck what the flow/temp sensor header shows there).

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    Hey all, HWInfo doesn't seem to be able to read the info from the flow sensor and pump headers on my Dark Hero. Any ideas? In fact throws errors and just won't read those sensors at all. I have an Aquacomputer Octo now and was hoping to use that data in Aquasuite to make some fan profiles.

    What's your favorite GPU comparison website?

    TechPowerUp GPU database for raw comparisons of the specs between cards. Also good for PCB shots on many cards that they review, which I find helpful as a water-cooler.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    While I don't disagree that this will happen, its time that on point #3, consumers stop making this excuse for price jumps. What happened to gen on gen price point replacement. So what if it's 90% faster than last gen, that doesn't make it cost 90% more (or shouldn't) all else being equal. Of...

    GTX 1630 to release in 2022. Seriously.

    That they are both anti-consumer? One could argue the AMD cards are worse for basically being repurposed laptop parts missing basic features yet costing what they do. So go AMD or Nvidia, no one wins in that card class. AMD is not your friend any more than Nvidia.

    You can literally go buy a 1650 Super right now for the same price as a 1630. Stupid card.

    2080Ti died...what to replace with?

    Well sounds like you already bought the 3080 Ti, was going to say 3080 12GB would be close enough in performance, really either card would be good for 4k and which you got probably depends on pricing/deals.

    [Epic Store] Car Mechanic Simulator (2018) and Fall Guys free (DEAD)

    Game of Thrones is a great board game (I've played the physical version). Its a bitch to get setup and going though, so if its the board game on Epic, go for it.

    GTX 1630 to release in 2022. Seriously.

    My local Micro Center has 1650's (regular, not the Super) for about $200 (many models at $205 and $210). So a 1630 coming out for $200 is just LOL. Not to say a base 1650 at $200+ is any good of a price either, but still, LOL. EDIT: And what is with Nvidia branding. How is a 30-class card even...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Yeah could see them going that route too on the 4080 and 4080 Ti, good point. Would be more in line with past gens. I still just don't think less than a 256-bit card would be good for a 70-class card at greater than or equal to $500 MSRP. A 192-bit card for $500 sounds awful. More or less my...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    I can see them putting 80-class back on 256-bit, sure, but 160-bit for the 70 card? I don't buy that one at all. I'd rather they do 4080 as 320-bit 20GB card, and 4070 as the 256-bit 16GB card. Agree on price. Has anyone been paying attention to prices of everything since the 30-series launch?

    Starfield

    The thing about Bethesda games is that they've never released a "good" game on the basis of it working, not having bugs, being polished, etc. What they did that no one else really did was give you a sandbox to play in and that had always been the appeal for me. When it comes to modding you...

    Upgrade or wait: mid 2022 edition

    I ran my 4790k/980 for 7 years. There's always something new around the corner and once I hit a point where performance is lacking enough that I need to upgrade, several gens have come and gone, then I buy the best I can within my budget and then run that for as many years until I once again hit...

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    Just got this up and running this week. Its been a unintentional long term project as I started buying parts for it in early 2021 and then the project kind of went on hiatus for the rest of 2021 - completely unrelated to the GPU shortage. Anyway, glad to finally have it up. I find the RGB light...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Not sure, but my guess is that if the power draw rumors are true on the top end cards and we are looking at 400-450W TDP cards, then they are only going to get bigger. If the rest of the stack stays pretty normal on power draw (under 250W TDP), then I'd imagine should stick to fairly normal...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Well their score aggregation is just broken and has changed in terms of how their scores are weighted over the years, and they are generally known for bias towards Intel for example, to the extreme which factors into that. Edit: So to add, the aggregate percentage difference in performance...

    AMD GPU Roadmap: RDNA 3 With 5nm GPU Chiplets Coming This Year

    Next gen Infinity Cache. I wonder how that'll work out. Infinity Cache helped, but it was clear that the 256-bit interface still hampered performance a bit at 4k.
