    I don't know if it's considered an accessory but it was cheaper then some usb 3 hubs. I bought one of those $55 1080p projectors that popped up on S.D. I ended up using it while camping this weekend and played local movies off the deck through Kodi. (powered up decks usb 3 hdmi hub and...

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    TIL. I suppose there is some merit if useful.. compared to RGB madness.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    This is why I like my old Cooler Master HAF-XB's.. never have to worry about video card sag. not that I would ever entertain the idea of a 4 slot card. I wouldn't mind one of those lighted card support stick things though. Sort of looks like a minecraft version of a mini light saber.

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    Hopefully they don't go the way of BFG. IIRC BFG got out of GPU's first and not too long after.. poof. EVGA is more diversified (then BFG was back then) and they'll probably be alright. There are plenty of manufacturers making it without producing GPUs.

    My Arc 380 adventure.

    I haven't tried the A380 in my Ryzen system yet but am willing to see if it's an issue. I didn't even know wtf rebar was until it told me I wasn't running it. Looked it up and saw it was primarily a game boosting feature and pretty much useless in my use case and the ops as a...

    Cheap USB-PD Laptop

    You can find cheap Lenovo T440p's on ebay. (under $200) They're workhorses (they're basically older model business laptops) and everything can be swapped out on them super easily. LCD, cpu, keyboard, etc. You can find the docking station under $30 that gets you all the ports like multiple...

    My Arc 380 adventure.

    fwiw.. I'm not using rebar but stuck my A380 in a H77 w/ 4790K if that matters.

    Vintage USRobotics External Modem & Power Supply

    Not sure it helps but the adapter from my USR .34 dual standard is 20v but no polarity listed interestingly. So looks like an ac to ac adapter like you stated

    Cheap no frills cell plan

    If you just need wifi calling and can use google voice, tie it into a voip box (I use a obihai obi200) and a regular home telephone system. I have 5 handsets spread throughout the house. Haven't paid any monthly fees although all I use it for these days is to find my cell phone.

    Intel rumored to announce Arc A750, A380 desktop cards in late May/early June for 350/150 USD respectively

    not anything that people with intel pc's haven't experienced with modern quicksync support. I had a choice of buying a new mb/cpu or $139 video card. AV1 was just a bonus and hope Plex get's onboard soon. If not.. all the other major competitors support it already. I was using the 1080 for...

    Intel rumored to announce Arc A750, A380 desktop cards in late May/early June for 350/150 USD respectively

    I purposely didn't watch the tech jesus video on ARC driver issues to see what I get without any bias. I had the same jankiness with trying to install ARC control. (found a blurb in the release notes that says install failure is normal, lmao) Latest drivers did install and I didn't have any...

    GN: Intel Arc A750 GPU "Hands-On" + driver issues(update)

    not a A750 but preordered my A380 for transcoding. Don't have a quicksync pc and this was the cheapest way to get it. with AV1 support on top. YOLO! Its probably going to go as well as the last time I bought an intel video card.

    Audio streaming issue

    Sound dumb but is Windows using the Focusrite ASIO drivers? In my daw I can set the i/o device different than what windows is set to. I've had windows revert mine to standard windows drivers and had to reset it.

    Need help to find better USBC DAC

    it outputs same analog signal through 3.5mm. think it's mainly marketed for headphones but the x-fi portion can be turned on/off and it used as a plain dac without the processing. I also have a Sabaj DA3 that is similar.

    Recommend an affordable multi-monitor setup

    I use 3 x 40's side by side by side for one of my stations. It worked out pretty well for sitting in front of for long periods of time. (also have a 34" up top) If moving to 4k screens you may or may not need the extra real estate but you could fit 4x1080p screens on one 4k desktop. That would...

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    I setup a UT2k4 server back in the lan days with my fav Bombing Run with only Arena style maps. Left it on and found out clans were using it for months. I spun up the same server a few years ago and got it to show up on the server list... no one showed up. I do miss lan days.. don't miss CRT...

    Can't understand why my 9 year old Sharp HD TV is still so much better in picture quality than my new Viewsonic 43" UHD monitor?

    fwiw I have one of the old Sharp Quattron's. LC43 I think. Posted about it here somewhere. Never had an issue with picture quality. Looked really good (for the time). It was probably more due to the glass screen on mine which turned out to be my main issue with it. It looked great at...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    CoolerMaster HAF XB in 2022 - Opinions Please

    think the best "feature" is the MB orientation. You can stick in the largest cards and never have to worry about sag.

    CoolerMaster HAF XB in 2022 - Opinions Please

    still running a few of them. They are perfect for my use. I like the ability to treat it like a bench case. Easy to work in and keeps MB uptop cleanly away from wiring/heat with PS below. for $50 it'd be a no brainer. You can put a pretty chunky aircooler but I use a AIO.

    Hard Lockups/nvlddmkm EventID 14 errors since upgrading to a 3080Ti

    yeah didn't know why and didn't sound logical.. just know that I had an identical AX1200 that I swapped with and problems disappeared. P/S and memory issues can be weird. CPU issues are the weirdest if you get them. I had one CPU that would only work with 1 stick of memory in any mb I put it in.

    Hard Lockups/nvlddmkm EventID 14 errors since upgrading to a 3080Ti

    The last time I had similar symptoms when I first got my 2080ti. Watching youtube and anything video related would crash/lock. After all the space invaders issues I waited wayyy after to purchase mine so assumed it wasn't due to that. I replaced everything. (memory, swapped cpus, etc) Turned...

    Wasn't sure if this one went into 3D printing area or here. anyone printing things for their deck yet? Printed this one that supposedly fits a anker usb hub in the back. I wouldn't know since I won't get mine for a bit. haha https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5254208
