    do you guys still use air can to spray clean the case or you use compressor?

    I use one of these with my compressor in the garage, it is about 4 foot tall. We have added a moisture/oil trap on the output. Have used it at least 5 times on various computers never had any issues.

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    I haven't noticed any issues yet.. I'm using a Corsair HX620, yeah old school modular. I am using two seprate 8-pin's each going to their own plug on the power supply. HWinfo says the vega is sucking 244 watts max. I set the +50% on the power with the undervolt at 1050mv.

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    Got the vega 56 friday so had some time over the weekend.. 1. Used wattman to undervolt and set the fan to run higher. I left the clocks the same for now as the ASUS is already factory OC. (1583 mhz) 2. Fan at 100% is quieter than the twin frozr 7950 at 100%. I play with headphones so that...

    That's why when I place an order, in the "delivery notes" I put $20 tip for driver if they deliver before 10am. :P

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    Yeah I game at 1080P. It should be a speed improvement over the 7950 at least. Will give me a reason to upgrade everything else later.. lol. Nice! I had the 7970 PCB on mine also.. ran it on air at ~1.1Ghz.

    Stick with speakers/receiver or soundbar?

    Be careful in the store. Observe how the sound system is set up. On the systems that they are trying to push, there is probably sound treatment, optimal space/layout of speakers, etc. The other speakers may be too close together, cramped space, hot spots where the sound will reflect. It may...

    Favorite adventure game

    Preferable if you can use Roland MT-32 for these old sierra games, some great sound! I bought a used one for a bargain. You need a soundcard with a MIDI port (most vintage soundcards have this) OR something like a usb->midi adapter. 25 pin. General Midi games probably sound better on a sound...

    Bogus Vmware guest memory usage warning

    During one of the VMworld 2018 presentations, one of the vmware employee's said using the memory alert is mostly a waste of time. When you do a memory reservation, vcenter will always see all of the memory "in use" because it is "reserved". NO way around that. Free annoying alerts! Yay...

    USB hubs in VMs

    We have a digi 4 port USB in our environment. Use it for USB license dongles and have it passed-through to a VM license server. Used to have a physical license server with the key plugged in the back, not anymore! Works great. Just for kicks I have also passed-through a usb to serial port...

    PC Classic!

    I bought a used one a few years back, was able to plug it in and get it working pass-through to DOSbox. Great to play all those old sierra games with an MT-32, no way I could have afforded one when they were new!
