    How to add 20+ HDD to a computer with 1 sata port and many USB ports available. CHIA madness.

    I have a giant box of 500gb hard drives, and I've decided I cannot spend any (ok MUCH) more money being a moron and farming CHIA. I have an extra power supply, so I can get them spinning no problem. Just need to interface them with my farming rig. I have solar panels so electricity cost doesn't...

    Foxconn Axes 50,000 Seasonal Jobs as Apple Slowdown Bites

    Display you look at every time you use a device vs. a chip that most people never use 1/2 of the "power" of by looking at instragram photos?

    Foxconn Axes 50,000 Seasonal Jobs as Apple Slowdown Bites

    But it has liquid retina display!!! LOL. Are people finally catching on the apple's marketing bullshit and realizing they are paying $500+ for a 720p screen in 2019?

    Netflix Will Now Interrupt Series Binges with Video Ads for Its Other Series

    A large number of boats are going to be getting dropped in the pirate seas if this happens. Just live lord Gaben said, piracy is a service problem. If your service shows me ads, I no longer pay for it. I can tolerate ads on the radio or on my OTA tv, because I don't pay shit for it.

    Freesync, enhanced sync, chill. WTF do I use?

    Just an update...been rocking freesync + enhanced sync + chill in PUBG and things have been fantastic. Noise is down, it drops to my low limit 70fps when I'm just being a prone garbage-player then jumps above that with movement seamlessly. A bit more quiet outta the stock blow-dryer. Would...

    Freesync, enhanced sync, chill. WTF do I use?

    Alright...I've searched for hours and received about 100 different combinations of answers, mostly on reddit. Time to go to the experts. I have a 1440p 144hz freesync monitor, Vega 56 flashed to 64. PUBG is my primary game right now, usually getting around 70-140 FPS in this shit-coded game...

    Mysterious RED Hydrogen Smartphone Coming This Summer

    I've gone 100% the opposite direction with phones... Every few years I decide to buy a nicer, light, "fancy phone" and I end up dropping it, nothing breaks but I become paranoid, and then I slap some stupid freaking case on it so I'm not afraid to use it. Then I have a huge, bulky phone with...

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    What do you mean by webfilter? I'm guessing since I don't know what that is, I don't use it. LOL

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    Yep...I updated both of them to latest firmware. I also made the mistake of installing the controller software on my gaming PC not my always on Server, so I had to factory reset them and re-install on the server so I can VNC in to manage them from anywhere. I thought they would be like most...

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    Alright, Ubiquiti access points installed. Super easy, super slick looking. Everything is up and running, R7000 no longer handling wifi. My wife hasn't complained about a single drop thus far. The Ubiquiti setup was way easier than I thought...mostly just named my SSID, put in a password...

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    Alright, I did it...this is the route I'm going. Keeping the R7000 for routing, disabling wifi, and adding an AC PRO upstairs and an AC LITE in basement. This should cover everything, offload some of the work from my struggling R7000 wifi, and let me dip my feet in to the thought of going...

    Netgear R7000, a few complaints, any reason to upgrade?

    There is my current "home network' setup. We built a house about a year ago and this is where I stand. Upgrades from the picture are just AT&T fiber, 300up/300 down. The nighthawk does a good job, a bit crappy upstairs in the attic (but I'm not there often, just a PITA when I'm trying to...

    Murdered my GPU I think - suggestions

    Alright...this is a first for me, and I'm a long-ish time system builder. This is a rig upgrade for a friend, and he doesn't have many spare parts to help me test. GPU in question - R9 380 Issue - Near immediate crash any 3d game. Fine for 2d browsing, etc. The story - upgrading old Phenom II...

    Why can't I pay money for a freaking FM2+ APU

    If you find it let me know...this will go in my HTPC so I wont' need to OC/etc. I'll buy it off you no problem provided the price is right? What is the right price for a half-burned up APU....LOL

    Why can't I pay money for a freaking FM2+ APU

    AMD is starting to irk me....between being unable to pay them money for a VEGA, to being unable to pay them money for an FM2+ A8 series APU...I am beginning to question their ability to actually produce things. I know FM2+ is old news, but I have a dual core APU that I just want to turn into...

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to Run at 60 FPS on Xbox One X

    Then don't. I felt the same way at first, and I do get bored playing solo...but with my friends as a team, we almost never camp. You can play aggressive, you can play passive, you can all drive around jeeps and not fire a single shot and just play "mad max." That is the beauty of the games...

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to Run at 60 FPS on Xbox One X

    I got my $20 worth out of it for sure. I hope they can do better soon, but I am with you, I don't think they will ever get it optimized. I really just want someone to copy the game almost exactly, using an engine that is actually functional. Hell, the graphics from battlefield 3 are better...

    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to Run at 60 FPS on Xbox One X

    I don't freaking understand how poorly optimized this game is. I'm running a Ryzen 1700 overclocked to 3.8, a Vega 56 flashed to 64, and 1440p. Low settings on everything except AA (which has no impact on FPS), and Reshade to make it look not so washed-out (subtract 5-7fps)....I'll almost...

    Time for a change?

    I used to lose sleep over this....because it just sucks so badly that freaking 10+ year old WMC is still better than any option we have available by a freaking landslide. Especially if you need protected content (which I don't). Personally, if you already have a W7 WMC box, I would just...

    How Loot Boxes Led to Never-Ending Games (And Always-Paying Players)

    I won't buy another EA game, but my understanding is that you basically need to grind for 40-ish hours to unlock Vader, or just fork over some money and buy him straight off the bat. This makes an uneven playing field on day 1 (as Vader is a more powerful character). It isn't just...

    looking for mouse advice

    You should add Mionix castor to your list. I've had almost every mouse every made, and this one is by far my favorite (to the point that I haven't even dabbled in looking at new mice for about 9 months, which is a world record for me).

    Cutting the Cable Cord? Savings Aren't What They Were

    This article is fucking bullshit. OTA antenna + Plex + Netflix + Amazon (really just for the shipping we don't even use the video). I quit cable and no longer follow sports that aren't OTA because I HATE GARBAGE BEING SHOVED DOWN MY THROAT. Provide us sports that aren't greater than 50%...

    VEGA 56 OWNERS - anyone found a guide to flash the Vega 64 BIOS?

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    Does anyone who has their hands on a VEGA know if the cooler mounting holes are the same as the R300/400/500 series cards? I've got a monster of an air cooler on my 390, and it would be awesome if I could port it over. https://www.arctic.ac/us_en/accelero-xtreme-iii.html

    VEGA 56 OWNERS - anyone found a guide to flash the Vega 64 BIOS?

    Title says it all. I snagged a Vega 56 from newegg (stupid bundle but I was planning on buying Wolfenstein anyways so I only overpaid $40). I usually don't "early adopt" but in this case I wanted to before they "patched" the 56 to 64 BIOS flash. That being said, I can't find a damn guide...

    Vega Rumors

    Wow...I think you might be retarded. It was a real question....If you are making $1k a month mining but paying $400 in power bills, everything he said basically doubles until break even. One PSU death and he's out a few more months. Just trying to really grasp if it makes sense to get into...

    freesync vs FPS?

    Honest question...have you used either tech for more than 5 hours? I'm guessing the answer is no. You don't go back. It's like 144hz back down to 60hz, maybe even better.

    freesync vs FPS?

    Freesync over FPS any day of the week....first hand experience. I literally want to vomit playing without Freesync now. I recently purchased an Acer XF270HU, 1440p, 144hz freesync monitor. I am a 100% FPS player, and have become burned out as hell with Overwatch as of late. Overwatch runs...

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Video Card Review @ [H]

    You know what the most frustrating part of this whole deal is...I want to grab a Vega 56 as it looks like it is going to be "OK enough" to upgrade my R390 to and push my 1440p Freesync monitor at max res w/ eye candy...BUT I CAN'T BUY THE THING! I never pre-order, but damnit I should have...

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Video Card Review @ [H]

    LOL...a "godsend" How about "these cards will be a decent option for those of us that own a freesync monitor." "A godsend" would be taking back any sort of price/performance crown, which this clearly didn't do. This is a passable release at best. The only reason I am considering is...

    AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Video Card Review @ [H]

    Blind Test - RX Vega FreeSync vs. GTX 1080 TI G-Sync

    I'm here to also jump on the Freesync bandwagon. I had to play CSGO on a non-freesync monitor at my buddies house and I wanted to jump out the window. It's like going from a 144hz monitor back to a 60hz monitor, but maybe even more important.

    Do you guys use diff DPI levels when on desktop vs. gaming ?

    So, how serious do you want to be about gaming? Because if you are competitive and want to "try hard", I would aim to have all settings 100% matching with regards to in game and out of game. Meaning you want your mouse cursor to always move the same distance per unit of mouse movement on your...

    Creating the PC Equivalent of the $500 Xbox One X Is Trickier Than You Might Guess

    OK..I fucking hate these articles. First off...Xbox requires a subscription to really be usable. $60 a year. So 1.5 years in you have W10 for free....or if you are like me I have 3-4 computers that I can upgrade to W10 for free. So cost of OS should be ignored, because you are paying for...
