    EK Quantum Velocity CPU Water Blocks as low as $25.20 from EKWB

    Man, shipping hurts, cost as much as a block. Currently on a quantum velocity AM4. PIcked up another hoping AM4 blocks are efficient on AM5. Also a STR4 block in case I end up going threadripper. Hope the new zen4 threadripper platform is compatible cooler wise. But at 35 bucks, willing to take...

    NVIDIA announces May 23 Computex 2022 Keynote, the company will present ‘the latest products for gamers’

    True, we don't know. But at least we know the silicon is capable of such. Doubt they would show it off if it wasn't stable...lol.

    NVIDIA announces May 23 Computex 2022 Keynote, the company will present ‘the latest products for gamers’

    After the two keynotes from AMD and nvidia over the past couple a days. Leads to more speculation on what we will be getting. At least we know the ES 16 core on zen 4 was boosting to 5.5ghz in game, at least we get something rather than nothing on the consumer side....lol.

    Seagate 18TB Hard Drive Exos X18 18TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 3.5" Manufacturer Recertified $245 Shipped

    If it states Manufacturer Recertified, would mean the manufacturer of said drive, has repaired/tested it, aka a refurbished product, and being resold with said warranty applied. If it states Seller recertified, it would mean the seller of said hard drives has had the drive serviced, not knowing...

    EVGA B stock GPUs on sale now! $1199 3090 FTW3

    Damn, that is a good price. Honestly not surprised though considering the 4090 is literally right around the corner. Probably find out more on the 22nd.

    Hisense U9DG 75" dual cell tv $2500CAN/2KUS

    Pretty ingenious workaround to LCD weaknesses honestly. If they were able to pull this out earlier to OLED's taking over, could of made a lot of money off the tech.

    So which KB/M gaming-oriented software is actually good these days?

    I wish, would be great to rid the software dependency factor in my mouse/keyboard selection. It's the only thing holding me back from switching to a different mouse. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to switch from my G502, I love the feel/grip. Wireless would be a nice touch, hence G502...

    So which KB/M gaming-oriented software is actually good these days?

    When you save the profile, I believe that's just for basic mice settings and what not? Where I think app detection + hotkey profiles would be software driven, hence require LGS/Ghub/etc. Unless I'm mistaken. Don't see how a mouse without any software would be able to sense which application is...

    So which KB/M gaming-oriented software is actually good these days?

    Man, I hate ghub. I'm sticking to older hardware that supports Logitech Gaming Software, cause it just works so well. Sad to see that GHub is such a huge steaming turd, as I want to get a g502 lightspeed, only that it isn't compatible with LGS. Using a g502, and a G903 Lightspeed (which works...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Agreed. You can thank that to the gsync module. Hence why I'm waiting for the Samsung model variant which will most likely be VRR supported without gsync hardware. Might even wait for 2nd gen panels, as I prefer 16:9 non curved.

    Logitech MX Master 3 Driving Me Out of My Mind

    Did your old mouse use Logitech Gaming Software? New one using Ghub? If so, it may be related to that. Ghub is absolute garbage, and causes so many problems it's ridiculous. Even so far as borking some peoples systems to the point they have no mouse control and are frustrated enough to reformat...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    Just my opinion, I'm thinking the rumors might be true though, that's a lot of performance to be kicking out at that core count and what not. Also my 3090 Strix draws an insane amount of power. Image below. This is at full load though, mining atm, while also running Topaz Labs Video Enhance AI...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    If you are talking about the Vesa HDR rating, it is different compared to LCD's where it tops out at HDR 1400. True Black HDR 400 is equivalent to HDR 1000 for LCD's. Since OLED's can hit true black without a sweat, it is rated completely off nits. For Oled's, there is only True Black HDR...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    There are two different HDR standards. True Black being for Oleds, with a 400, 500, and 600 luminance rating for each. Where as the standard and more common Vesa DisplayHDR 400 up to 1400 for LCD displays. The QD-OLED panel is rated at a peak luminance of 1000, which is brighter than WOLED LG...

    Leaning towards the OLED again. Bah....Wish we could get some more info on what Samsung is planning to release though. Would prefer to have an HDMI 2.1 connection....Not Hdmi 2.0.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Yea. I have a triple monitor setup atm. Got a six monitor mount, but only using three displays atm. Would love to play some Witcher, Cyberpunk, and immersive titles on this big beast. But working in 3d, the extended out interface might be annoying to turn my head left and right to see the...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    I'm probably gonna hold off on this display till 2nd gen. Got the Eve Spectrum preordered, and going for the glossy option. Not a big fan of ultrawide, but it's been very tempting. After seeing the side by side comparison shots to the LCD and LG Oled panel to the QD-OLED, the colors looked...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Man. I'm super torn at this moment. Got three IPS 27' 1440p displays at 144hz. Have an Eve Spectrum preordered to be my new main display, was planning to nab the glossy 1440p 280hz option. Would cost me about 700 since I pre-ordered early on. But having a hard time justifying the price when this...

    WD Easystore 14TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive - $200

    Can definitely vouch for the HGST manufactured drives. I have 11 HGST manufactured drives. Some with over 50,000 hours on them. Still going strong. Smallest being 3 and 4tb Deskstar NAS drives, I remember when I first set them up, they being louder than my other WD drives, but they have served...

    Cowboy Beebop live action at Netflix!

    https://www.theverge.com/2021/12/9/22827010/cowboy-bebop-netflix-live-action-cancel Canceled, not surprised honestly. It wasn't terrible, wasn't great either. Would of liked to seen a second season redemption, but alas, seems it can't get out of the well.

    Two great power supply deals at Newegg (Super Flower 1300 & EVGA 1000)

    How is that not the edge? You are pushing the psu to the near limit of it's capabilities. That is in definition, the edge. Unless you can magically pull 1300w on a 1000w psu continuously, that would be defined to as the edge. Don't get me wrong, a high quality PSU will give you cleaner output...

    Two great power supply deals at Newegg (Super Flower 1300 & EVGA 1000)

    Very true, but you would be pushing the unit harder. Let's say the 4080 or 4090 does pull 600w. Which isn't unlikely, as my 3090 strix pulls 400w (390 to be exact). That's without OC'ing...Heck, my 3080 amp holo does around 300'ish. So let's say it's 600w. Plus a CPU, 12900k, around 240w, my...

    Two great power supply deals at Newegg (Super Flower 1300 & EVGA 1000)

    I believe there were articles stating the 4000 series were to consume more power, rumor of course, but I doubt it wouldn't be true considering the competition between Nvidia/AMD atm. Expect them to push the edge as much as possible to have the winner. Also with the 600w pull with the new single...

    Advice on a Data server for main pc.

    Alright. So got a server up and running as a test bed, two identical shucked drives, brand new. One with SM, the other with ISCSI. Performance wise, the drives are performing nearly identically. Although the SMB transfers around 10-15 mb slower on unqueued 1mb sequential . But so close that it...

    Haven't read much in the thread, would say I'm a huge Cowboy Bebop fan from the original anime. Literally the only anime I watched over two more times as soon as I finished watching it, I've never done that before for any anime, I just wanted more. Binged the entire thing. I'll keep it spoiler...

    {HOT} Thermaltake 500w PSU $15

    lol. It's not as bad as you guys make it out to be honestly....For just a spare psu for post tests, and powering something for a quick moment, does the job. Now would I use it as my main system psu?...hell no. I only use seasonic platinum psu's . But for 15 bucks, it can serve a purpose =P.

    WD Easystore 14TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive - $200

    Hmm, it scans every single sector for damaged blocks (hence the 10 hours). So far hasn't let me down, so will probably do the same still. Although I have a spare raspberry pi laying around, might try it just for kicks. Haven't used parted magic in a while, was definitely useful for me in the...

    WD Easystore 14TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive - $200

    Advice on a Data server for main pc.

    Been doing more research as I go back and forth with what everyone has said. Both seem to be the right solutions for me. Huge advantage to the SMB method, is the drives are native in a windows NTFS environment, so I can access the data readily if the system dies. I currently use SMB for sharing...
