    Mick Gordon (sound designer of Doom) issues statement regarding DOOM Eternal

    also love how Bethesda is complains about how these kind of post made people angry and gave developers death threat, but completely negating that it was their own guy Marty that started it with dumping his vommit on reddit. Totally double standard there

    ye olde blast from the past IDE HDD failed - adapt to SSD?

    So not CHS but ECHS exactly like i said "CHS mapping capped out at like 500mb. and Either ECHS had to be used or..." I think we are practically agreeing. I just differ between CHS and ECHS and you put them both under the CHS umbrella. You could also use some of those fancy danymic loaders...

    Quiet pwm fans?

    Yeah im thinking the artic P!2 is my reccomending for anyone wanting good fans but not pay a high premium and the phanteks when you just want top of the line. the fact it is/was slightly cheaper than noctua and outppeforming it on both sound and performance at the same time makes it a total...

    NEW CPU Benchmark for Gamers and Overclockers 3-D Mark

    my problem is that a synthetic CPU test is close to useless especial considering the highly difference in CPU architecture. So despite a CPU A coming out ahead, it is still pretty likely that is it slower than CPU B, but just the benchmarks is optimized for for this giving architecture. You can...

    NEW CPU Benchmark for Gamers and Overclockers 3-D Mark

    I Really dont see a lot of value in this TBH is this a generic synthetic CPUtest ? There is "a million" CPU tests on real world code I think would be better to use. or am i missing something ? in such case let me know

    Are BIOS chips interchangeable?

    I have to agree with Dan too. I have with a conservative count probable 10.000 PC built/repaired, and very rarely run into Bios defective issues and mostly its from bad flashing. There is a difference between being a sign, and being a for sure conclusion.

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    Does not change the fact that you don't pay on revenue. You comment was "...he forgot to pay taxes on that 1.7 million revenue" aka you said he needed to pay on revenue otherwise he cannot forget it. That is still an incorrect statement. and no matter how much you make up in your mind about the...

    Sixteen Years Old, $1.7 Million in Revenue: Max Hits It Big as a Pandemic Reseller

    I don't see the connection between what you are saying and my point in that you don't pay taxes on revenue. You don't pay 600k in taxes for 1.7mill revenue. You pay taxes on the 110k net income. If you paid 35% taxes (you numbers) on revenue there would be businnes that could not exist as...
