    Who are madmen buying $700 motherboards?

    I picked up the Gigabyte one mostly for the 10Gb nic and no fan. I don’t upgrade too often so I’m not too worried about the price. Still waiting on my water block and 3900X to go with it.

    EA Deletes Origin Account with Thousands of Dollars’ Worth of Games

    EA banned my account for no reason what so ever. All they will tell me is that it was due to a charge back even though I've never entered any payment info into Origin. Saves me from ever buying games from them again at least.

    DOCSIS 3.1 Brings 10 Gbps Downstream, 1 Gbps Upstream to Cable Modems

    The problem with cable upload is it's only 4 carriers on most systems. To get more upload, you'd have to move the whole system to a mid or high split which takes all new equipment from the headend, to nodes to amps. It's easier with the Node + 0 setup we're rolling out but it's a pretty massive...

    San Francisco, Seattle Tire of Comcast, Mull Building Citywide Fiber Networks

    Fiber is cheap, the CMTS's and routers on the other end sure aren't. The cooling bill alone on the buildings housing that stuff is massive.

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    I updated my drivers and firmware on my C32HG70 and my Freesync range went from 80-120 to 120-144 so I'm not sure which one messed it up.

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    Tried flashing to the WC BIOS on my card and no dice, it hangs the system as soon as I start any sort of benchmark. At least I got my cooling sorted and it's sitting at a nice 49 deg under load. Stupid air bubbles.

    RX Vega Owners Thread

    It looks like the C32HG70 that I picked up with the Vega has a freesync range from 90-120 Hz right now and is not displaying 144Hz as an option, ah the fun of bleeding edge haha. I will say that the card stays at about 60 C under water so that's cool.
