    SOLD: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X

    No, sorry. No mobo, only the CPU. I upgraded. (I actually thought about buying a mobo for this cpu to just do a fun build, but the need for a GPU would mean having to buy that as well.)

    Ronin hacked, $600M in Ethereum stolen

    I wonder about whether public law enforcement resources should be spent on cases like this. As a tax payer (in the USA), I don't want to pay for securing unregulated markets, particular when a main aim of the market participants is to transact outside the bounds of recognized laws and...

    Games you liked that (almost) everyone hated

    Mad Max. At least, I remember it being panned by a lot of reviewers at release (for being repetitive, somewhat generic). But I thought it was a lot of fun.

    DeWALT 20V Max tool + 20V PowerStack Battery Starter Kit Starting @ $129 + Tax

    Anyone have experience with how much power that little atomic reciprocating saw has? I'm wondering if it would have the power to help me cut an existing window out of an exterior wall (cedar siding). That would be about my biggest job for it. I'd rather stick with the smaller saw if I could, but...

    PC Restarted and Now Doesn't Turn On

    Maybe try resetting your CMOS by jumping the CMOS pins or removing the battery for a minute or so. Seems most likely to be the mobo, based on my recent experience with a similar issue on a B550 motherboard. Might be worth it just to buy a replacement motherboard and call it done, depending on...

    EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G3, 80 Plus Gold 550W, Fully Modular $39.99

    Are the newer EVGA G3's still Superflower OEMs? The recent price drops on the G3's make me think maybe something has changed.

    Win 11 pro's? con's? opinions?

    I'm wondering if all of those OEM gray market Windows 7 activation codes will continue to work, or if MS will use this as an opportunity to bork those.

    Newegg Shuffle going bezerk

    I think the Shuffle today is just a one-off tie-in as part of a celebration for their NASDAQ listing. This Shuffle is offering "discounted" prices on items (the $380 for 5800X, for example), rather than scalper pricing on component bundles. But the only decent components I saw were the 5800X...

    Newegg now trading on NASDAQ

    I used to enjoy the Newegg Daily Deals ("shell shockers"), and picked up some good components that way. I also used them a lot when Newegg Premiere was a thing for a while, and you got free expedited shipping and hassle-free returns. Their biggest advantage these days seems to be the...

    Newegg now trading on NASDAQ

    Newegg is now being traded on NASDAQ. Under the tone-deaf symbol NEGG(ative reviews). Appears to have been purchased / merged with a Chinese medical equipment company. I wonder what the boys over on /r/wallstreetbets will do with this one? Today might be the first trading day. Up about 30%...

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    The BTC push from 30K to 60K feels to me kind of like the previous push in 2017 / 2018 from 10K to 20K. After which interest and activity around cryptocurrency fell off pretty quickly. So maybe the local bubble bursts this time at 60K-ish. I don't remember at what point the GPU market normalized...

    CD Projekt Red says it was hacked but won't pay the ransom

    I wonder if game source code could potentially allow development of hacking tools targeting users with those games installed. Do any CDPR games request access to public networks when they initially run, for example?

    Rtx 3000 series undervolt discussion

    Very helpful discussion. Undervolting really helped me improve coil whine on my EVGA 3070 XC3. It does seem as if the frequency / power curve is pretty heavy handed. Backing off the power by undervolting really minimizes the coil whine on my card to the point that it isn't an issue (can't really...

    Popular and successful games you just don't care for

    I generally like open world / map clearing games (AC series, Mafia III, Tomb Raider, Shadow of Mordor), but could never get into the Far Cry series, except the first one, which was really more of a first person shooter anyway. I was very late to GTA V, but have given it a try, but didn't feel...
