    Thinking about getting the Intel NUC 9 Extreme Kit, but have questions?

    You need standard memory for the system to function. Optane memory is for storage acceleration, so it isn't required and will likely not benefit your workloads. I would pick 16-32GB of DDR4 2666 or XMP 3200, and then also go with a 512-1TB NVME ssd. For the RTX 2060 there are a few models but...

    This beast should still be fine? SilverStone ST80F-TI for new build

    That PSU is overkill for the build you are intending. You could likely get by with a 650 just fine.

    warped Lian Li hard drive cage

    Is this affecting functionality or just something that bothers you aesthetically? You may have to completely remove the cage by drilling out rivets and such to get it out to flatten the bends.

    Rosewill 2 port DisplayPort KVM Switch $49.99

    strange choices in asrock x570 mini itx TB3 can someone explain why to me?

    If it is anything like Intel its very difficult to do power management over the cpu pcie lanes for hot plug capabilities. That is my assumption here anyway.

    m.2 905p optane

    Not trying to start a fight here. I think its important to point out that it may be working in your laptop, but not every laptop is going to have the ability to do so as some cut corners on routing the 3.3V power plane. The drive does not have any power saving features in the firmware which is...

    m.2 905p optane

    The 905P is specced to consume 11.5W at load and 7W at idle. It absolutely is not the same as other M.2 drives. The m.2 spec is 2.5A maximum, while the 905P is 3.5A.

    Intel Comet Lake build lol (planning ahead)

    The "Haswell ready" moniker had to mostly do with C-States which are effectively power levels the cpu can get down to for power saving. C6 C10 etc. If you buy an 80plus silver or better these days you should be covered considering the "haswell ready" psus started hitting the market back in 2013.

    EVGA GTX 980 TI burned components, fixable?

    On your section picture the smaller resistor is a 5Mohm and the inducter is an R68. These are "relatively easy to source" parts and also relatively easy to replace. However even if you replace them you won't necessarily know if its a full fix or not until some time down the line. This is a...

    HDR conundrum due to limited HDMI ports on 1080ti

    My day job has a lot of "compatibility testing" related to display, HDR, etc... There might be other adapters that are capable of it, but those Club3d ones are the best quality by far. They also have a pretty decent reputation in the industry for being the first to support HDCP2.2 over DP to HDMI.

    HDR conundrum due to limited HDMI ports on 1080ti

    I'm have an EVGA 1080FE or a 1080ti? Either way, you have 3xDP1.4 and 1xHDMI 2.0b and use both monitors on you DP ports. Also DP is fully HDR compliant as of DP 1.4 which Pascal 1060 and higher have. The monitor itself might not be HDR compliant with DP1.4 but I don't see why...

    Small form factor PC for 24-7 4K video playback

    Depending on how old the NUC was and what player/OS it was using you may be able to get significant upgrades out of a newer NUC. Do you happen to know what kind of file type, and media player you were using on it? Also remember that NUCs use mobile silicon which is rated for 100C operating...

    Dead or Alive 6 Hasn't Toned Down the Sexualization, It's Just Tucked It Away

    I should have clarified, its a caricature of the 90's idea of trans = villains except on steroids. It is obviously more nuanced than that. Your last sentence is spot on though even if it is meant to be sarcastic, Transgender, Transsexual, Transvestite, intersex, or just internalized...

    Nintendo President Says Switch Successor, Price Cut Not Currently Being Considered

    I didn't say I was actively pirating or even justifying it at all. I just think it would be incredibly difficult to measure any kind of real impact to their bottom line as a result of people running switch/wiiu emulators. I don't pirate games anymore, haven't since some time in college(2008 or...

    Intel Updates Kaby Lake G Radeon RX Vega M Driver

    Do all recent intel chips come with the graphics processor on it? Nearly all laptop chips have a HD630/UHD630 on them. Whether the vendor determines they want to route it is up to them. Why didn't they pair their chip without the graphics to the vega if they knew they would exclusively connect...
