    Warm? Anker Soundcore Life P2 True Wireless Earbuds 40$

    Honestly, they are decent but there is zero Bass with them. You won't get a full spectrum audio experience by far and I can't get them to stay in my ears very well when I run and I've tried all the included tips. I paid much less on a Anker special for them. From my experience, $40 isn't...

    Best USB Bluetooth host? (range especially)

    Asus BT400 seems to be the best choice that are showing in most Google searches. Better driver support than most of the generic brands and works well with older Win OSes. $22.99 with free shipping on Amazon Prime.

    Fortnite crashing

    89C is very high for a non-OC'd 2700X. I would suggest getting some fresh thermal paste and repasting the cooler on the cpu as it seems as if it isn't mounted well. The other possibility is that the motherboard is overvolting the processor in Auto mode. Check the voltages while running time...

    Just got my new Gig board. No factrory seal on box?

    Realistically, I would put a drop of that cut finger blood somewhere on the MB. An offering to the electronic deities... may get you a bit higher OC, if you are into that! :cigar:

    Anyone here old enough to understand this ?

    We had an Egghead in San Diego back in the day. Was a candy store for nerds. Loved it. Bought those 720KB 3.5" diskettes and used the hole punch to make them dual side 1.4MB diskettes. I remember buying Starflight there and losing whole weekends to it.

    China dominating in the race to file tech patents

    Does this mean we get to ignore their patents and intellectual properties, just as they ignored the world's patents and properties to get where they are now? (snarky response, but seriously):banghead:

    Forgot the password? Your device is bricked.

    The problem with a hardware forced timeouts is that would be tantamount to a denial of service/access to the device. A hacker could deny the owner the ability of accessing the device. Sure, save the in internet from an IoT botfarm but deny the owner of the device the ability to access and...

    Vengeance memory not playing nice with older EVGA board

    I'll throw in my 2 cents. Reseating the CPU has often "fixed" ram issues on these older boards, especially when ram is not being seen on particular slots. Also, you will want to have both 8 pin power ports plugged in between the rear I/O ports and the CPU. It's possible there is a voltage...

    OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro

    That would be unfortunate as continual use of the USB C port eventually causes failures on the port. Plenty of users end up having issues of intermittent charging due to loose plugs that wiggle and break connectivity. I really enjoyed the OnePlus hardware and software but adding such a simple...

    What 18 GB looked like about 20 years ago

    I miss dial-up BBSing. I started with a fancy 1200 baud modem. I definitely miss some of the daily turn games that were common back in the day. Never had to deal with a TRS model 3, thankfully. Went from a Vic20 to a Leading Edge model D. Swapping floppies FTW!

    What was your first pc?

    My parents bought a Commodore VIC 20 with a cassette drive for storage. Programmed basic games from the back of a computer magazine at the time. All those lines of code took forever to input just to see it fail from a spelling or punctuation error. Then we got a Leading Edge Model D with...

    Do I have 8GB or 16GB? Conflicting info

    It may seem weird but you may want to remove your cpu from the motherboard and then reinstall. I seem to remember back in the day that cpu coolers could just slightly warp the boards enough to cause issues like this, especially with memory. I still run my old 2600k and had the ram issue as...

    HOT ! Various 1TB NVMe with coveted E12 Controller $135 aprox retail

    Looks like you could potentially use 2 of the QNine adapters in the hightlighted PCIe slots but they are likely limited to x8 speeds and booting from them may not be possible. Somebody may have a better handle on that aspect.

    HP Omen 65 Emperium

    I certainly can see the point of the 14ms G2G time but this isn't a 1440 display, it's a 4K display. I am hoping somebody has some in person experience/testing on it. Just saw this in the footnotes: 4. Default refresh rate is 120Hz with NVIDIA® G-SYNC® HDR on I guess HDR mode cuts down the...

    2600k, Best board for casual OC

    You will be hard pressed to find many new 1150 motherboards at this point. It is very long in the tooth at this point. I'm still rocking my 2600k and it works just fine for casual gaming. I did a searching and there are a few new boards to be found but nothing really enthusiast class, at...

    Simple Case for 9900k

    I picked up the Thermaltake View 22 a couple days ago off Amazon for $50. Looked very similar to many models from other vendors that wanted $80-100 more. I should have it soon. For the price and features, it was hard to say no! Plus, I needed a larger case so I could drop in a Corsair H110...

    LCD,LED screens 'burn" my eyes! What is the solution?

    I'll throw in my 2 cents. I work with 3 monitors for 8-10 hours a day at work and had alot of headaches for some time. I got my eye prescription redone and made sure to get the blue light block coating added. It made a world of difference for me. I also have the Blue Light Filter setting...

    NVIDIA NDA & HardOCP - POLL

    Based on what we know about Nvidia's business practices, I vote NO. I would rather have a retail sample reviewed, without restrictions or limitation, over a "review sample" that has in the past, been known to be not representative of the released technology. ie. Overclocked RAM or Overclocked...

    AllexxisF1, Thanks for sharing your rig. I have a very similar story regarding my Sandy Bridge rig. My system in my signature is still going strong and is my primary gaming rig. The biggest change regarding longevity is, of course, the video cards. I'd carried over sli'd 8800GTXs from the...

    I use CDW as a vendor for work and their shipping is almost always amazingly quick. We aren't a large company but we often get stuff in 2 days for standard shipping. Apparently they have warehouses everywhere. I can't say their pricing is as competitive as some sites but they do truly seem to...
