    Case connector header, e.g. ASUS - timewasting lunacy in 2022

    I've seen small headers that you attach to the cables first then install onto the board enabling you to plug them all in at the same time.

    Bill Being Pushed to Outlaw Bots From Snatching Up Online Goods

    Your probably right but I hope as the fight against it gains more momentum it will persuade retailers to do something. Probably a pipe dream but there has to be a line somewhere. It's pretty ridiculous these days..

    Bill Being Pushed to Outlaw Bots From Snatching Up Online Goods

    Change should come from the retailers selling the products not the gov't. They just want to intrude into more aspects of our lives every day. We have already seen companies implement bot protection on their websites. Although it isn't perfect I would imagine if the pushback of customers grows...

    How bad is this blem?

    I assume you have used the card and it operates normally ? If temps look good I wouldn't worry about it. You could always lap the heatsink if you really wanted but I would run it personally.

    Copper Foil Shortage

    I have been kind of hoping for this. Although living through it can be rough, my hope is that it spurs more domestic production. I can already see the shift with new FAB's being built but I am hoping it effects more then just computer chips.

    How long do keyboards last?

    I have a G15 membrane KB that is still going strong from 2009. Probably depends how much you use it.

    Will power consumption concern you? (future CPUs)

    I enjoy ITX builds so power consumption and heat are always a factor. A full tower rig on the other hand not so much.

    Scalping Question

    No that is not considered scalping. That is selling it at your cost. Post the gpu with your receipt and you should be good to go.

    New to Mining, looking for Tips/Advise

    Not sure if that thread is the best example. He simply was not going to the new coinbase pro website so his coins were not "hacked and drained". I get your point and agree keeping a large amount of coins on any trading platform is a risk.

    Cyberpunk 2077 - needs more polish for a AAA title

    No game lives up to the hype when it builds for so long. It has exceeded my expectations although I am finding more bugs the longer I play. It is still a good game, I am having a blast. Been a long time since I have been drawn to play a game so much. Probably the last time was Skyrim.

    After Ampere Launch Survey

    after hearing about NV attempting to simplify their product stack I am just going to go for a 3080 tomorrow. Figured if I can get one at launch and pair that with the new Ryzen down the road it will make for an awesome upgrade from a 4970k/1080ti. Prepare your F5's!

    So buy Ampere or wait for AMD response?

    My guess is they will drop these cards, wait for amd, then drop the 3080ti version. i will just wait for the Ti version. I have always had good luck with those cards, EVGA 1080ti being the latest.
