    Dell and Intel show off the Luna project at a pre CES event

    Just like the Alienware 51M? With the upgradeable CPU/GPU? https://www.pcmag.com/news/dell-faces-lawsuit-over-botched-upgradability-for-alienware-area-51m-laptop I wont bother holding my breath hoping they will do this for long term. Once it becomes unprofitable (regardless of...

    Microsoft cancels "new" console

    I can see them chasing the next Fortnite due to the simpler upkeep, seasonal shit, and the willing for players to keep dumping money into micropayments. While the other titles you listed are impressive alone, they cannot compete on revenue generated by a weekend art team reskinning something...

    What are you playing on your deck?

    Generation Zero, not a huge fan of the joysticks when trying to snipe components…. But it beats carrying around a laptop.

    Which RTX 4090 card are you planning or consider to get?

    Still trying to snag a FE since EVGA is out of the game. Maybe the Asus TUF after New Years if I am still unlucky.

    4090 Reviews are up.

    DLSS doesn't seem as impressive, but really impressed about the pure rasterization improvement. While I wouldn't want to swap from my 3080 Ti... But, if I come across one in the store.... Who knows.

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    More coverage. I wonder what’s going to happen next. Have been using these guys since the 8 series? There goes my 10 year warranties… /s (maybe not). Ohh damn killing off GPU sales completely? Wow.

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    I was able to clean them off…. But, I ended up going with a new GPU, partially due to a needed upgrade/couldn’t find replacement fans that died trying to move oil around.

    One of the worse PC builds you seen.....

    I really wish I had pictures of my vegetable oil cooled PC back in 2006? Was young and dumb thinking that it was the next best think to mineral oil…. Learned my lesson three months later when a RAM stick threw an error…. Decided to crack the box open in my computer room and nearly threw up...

    Have you thought about a larger aftermarket cooler instead?

    Liquid Metal w/ Stock Heatsink

    Going to say…. Sure you can do it (depending on the heatsink material). But I don’t think it is worth it. Sure, you will drop a few degrees, however, I don’t think you will see a super noticeable increase in performance.

    5800X3D gaming review

    Since 720/1080p gaming is the talk of the town, grab a 6xxx series cpu with RDNA2 and save money not buying a gpu.

    Warranty denied

    If I remember correctly, Northridge and a few others were taking a look at the 3000 series GPUs from Gigabyte. It’s up for debate if it is a flaw in the PCB/Heatsink design that is causing some of these boards to crack around the pcie connector. This crack apparently was caused by “improper...

    Frustrated Father Accidentally Takes Down Town's Internet

    Both of my near teens do not have cell phones. Additionally, most if not all social media is blocked on their networks. If there was any net benefit to those services then they might get a hour or so a day. But as someone else said just have the kids turn in the device before bed. Or, if...

    Water cooling

    Self test, run it at the top of the case as intake, record your temp. Swap the setup to exhaust, record your temps. See which one cools better. Also, look at your GPU temps, see how both setups impact it. I think your radiator/cpu temps will mostly be fine in intake or exhaust. However...

    steam deck reviews and tear downs

    Seems better than its competition. Never watched this guy before. Edit: After watching the reviews, I have no concerns about my reservation. It exceeds my expectations (off of games shown) and provides that at a price point much lower than the Neo/One X. Will I use it daily/weekly, probably...

    NVIDIA’s Miner vs. AMD’s Whiner - CES 2022

    I know gamers nexus covered it, though their card was shipped with the wrong vbios. So they treated it as the $330 variant from EVGA. That review shows nearly a constant 20-30FPS advantage over the 6500. Also, they covere how it performa over the 6500 on Gen 3/Gen4 pcie, looks close.

    Star Citizen and Squadron 42 are still years from launch, CIG confirms

    I know the feeling. I am still amazed at the way you can interact with the ships and how their flight dynamics change if you are doing fully loaded cargo runs.

    Star Citizen and Squadron 42 are still years from launch, CIG confirms

    I backed this game for Squadron 42. I give two shits about the persistent online world, motion cap studio, or whatever other shit they purchased to help facilitate “development” of this game. Just let it die To repeat what others have said, “I’ve had more fun/gotten more for my money on Elite...

    Google loses patent case against Sonos, will remove features from Nest and Chromecast products

    Keep it then. Use it everyday and come to a forum and bitch about how you hate said company. Glad you glossed over the sell part, would hate for someone to skip over a way to possibly recoup some of their loss.
