    Noctua Was the Only Hardware Company at Computex Totally Ignoring RGB

    Holy f*ck, sensitive much? I just said that I didn't observe the seemingly widespread pump failures / leaks of AIOs. Didn't say a f*cking thing about how AIOs were better, or that big air coolers were pointless, or that my use case is the be all and end all.

    Noctua Was the Only Hardware Company at Computex Totally Ignoring RGB

    I've heard this over and over, and yes, it's only 3 anecdotal data points, but my 2x Antec Kuhler 920 and 1x Kuhler 620 have been running pretty much 24/7/365 for the past few years without issues.

    Can anyone ID this Cooler Master CPU Cooler?

    Hyper212 Plus. You'd just about break even after fees and shipping, so just bundle the dang thing :)

    The Great Video Game Exodus

    No idea, but this is a pattern that EA has repeated since time immemorial.

    The Great Video Game Exodus

    Origin, Westwood, Bullfrog, Maxis. EA is the Microsoft of the gaming world.

    Descent’s True Spiritual Successor, Overload, Is Now Available

    Oh shucks, with all this reminiscing in this thread, imma pull out my old Canopus Spectra 2500 + Pure3D II and party like it's the 90s again. Hell, will see if my OG Pure3D still works.

    Descent’s True Spiritual Successor, Overload, Is Now Available

    Still one of my favorite game trailers. Actually run the DOS executable from time to time. Also, f*ck I feel old and I'm supposedly a millennial :(

    Thermaltake Toughpower 1200W PSU 10 Years Later @ [H]

    I can probably live with my modded BFG EX-1000s for a couple more years. With multi-GPU being t*ts up, there's almost nothing that would load them near 100%.

    No, at this rate, the question is will there be any performance gain left from speculative execution?

    All Your Routers Are Belong to Russia

    More than the (hopefully) better security and increased features, I wanted a firmware that would present a uniform interface across multiple devices. It's a PITA to do tech support for family when they have who-knows-what router with who-knows-what GUI. This way, everything from my "big a*s"...

    All Your Routers Are Belong to Russia

    Certainly true, but that's about as good as we can get (ie. open-source 3rd party firmware)

    All Your Routers Are Belong to Russia

    They're welcome to try. No stock firmware anywhere, all DD-WRT, either MIPS or x86.

    General Purpose Server 30tb+

    You can get as fancy or as simple as you'd like. My file "servers" have been simple JBOD setups for the past decade (see HTPC in sig, have 2x of those in separate locations) Started out way back when with a bunch of Promise IDE HAs + ~200GB HDDs, now on 16x 8TB He8s.

    Why isn't having many small hard drives for backup more popular?

    I've been using USB3 portable HDDs as backups for ages. Great $/GB, no random access penalty unlike tape. Just make sure to keep it in a safe area, and spin it up every once in awhile.

    Klipsh ProMedia 2.1 With BlueTooth - $109.99

    Have had 8 sets of Promedia 2.1s for the past decade, all still running fine to this day. Only failure was a wonky control pod.

    Testing new HDDs

    ALWAYS! Doesn't matter whether it's a new HDD, or new-to-me HDD. Quick zero write, then (full sector scan, full zero write) x3. After all that, it had better not have a single, bad SMART attribute, particularly realloc count, and pending realloc count. EDIT : My bad mods, didn't realize this...

    I ran dual 1080s for a few days just for lulz, and it was definitely overkill for my use case.

    Why do we still have PS/2 ports on motherboards?

    Still banging this babe daily (as well as more warm/gooey ones)
  37. WhoBeDaPlaya

    Why do we still have PS/2 ports on motherboards?

    For installing older OSes without native USB3 drivers, since Intel and AMD decided to yank EHCI from newer chips.
