    Build your next gaming PC from… Walmart?

    Went to Walmart last year to get a XBone controller and the only one they had was a open box one, turned out to be a well used one some dishonest person exchanged for a new one. I can see the samething happening with the CPUs and GPUs.......

    Toyota Shut Down 14 Factories Due to 'Insufficient Disk Space'

    Why, just because YT said it was age restricted? No nudity whatsoever. But, seriously, I betcha someone had no work related stuff on their servers. :LOL:

    Looking for a laptop cooler???

    20g is more than enough with 2 extra applications. You want to blob it on to every chip that is cooled by the heatsink but the CPU and GPU. Just don't use too little, and coat the whole chips. You want to use enough so it squeezes out the sides, any that spills out can be put back into the tub.

    Looking for a laptop cooler???

    Too thick pads will prevent HS from making proper contact with your CPU and GPU. Use thermal gunk so any excess will just squeeze out.

    Looking for a laptop cooler???

    Get some Honeywell PTM 7950 phase change pads for the CPU and GPU, and a tub of K5-Pro for the other chips. As for your nvme heatsinks, I wouldn't trust those bands as they can snap, used some capton tape IMO.

    Surface Pro worth buying yet?

    Too few ports IMO so I was hoping to get a i5 or i7 Pro 7+ a year or 2 ago but the didn't have the funds for it plus the prices were just a little too high for my tastes. I just bought top spec One NetBook T1, 1k USD and awaiting shipment now. i7-1260P, 2TB 2280 nvme, microSD and USD A ports...

    Amazon CEO Andy Jassy threatens employees to return to office or "things are probably not going to work out for you"

    Where, in the US? I don't think that'll fly well here, especially in Florida. I wouldn't know, I don't have a subscription, just spent money on MOR tech to feed my addiction, so me pockets be bare captain.

    Give them de boot, AFAIC scAmazon can fuck off, but they have the right to tell their monkeys to get back to their cages at HQ. If the monkeys don't like, then they can look elsewhere for work. Tho those hired with the condition they can work from home should be grandfathered in, maybe offer...

    Looking for a laptop cooler???

    I bought a couple of heatsinks for my m.2 drives, think I used some thermal paste for the tallest chip and a pad for the lower ones. I ditched the rubber bands that "secured" the sink to the stick and just wrapped it with capton tape.

    Good game, only issue I had with it was you couldn't zoom out much in gameplay, it felt too zoomed in compared to the other games in the series.

    For purely gaming purposes, should I upgrade processor, memory, and MB or just the video card and stick with my current hardware?

    Meh, I wouldn't upgrade unless you're having serious performance issues on the games you play and after you're sure a software fix won't fix it, so, #3. You're pretty much a gen old but the CPU, surprised the CPU isn't hyperthreading.

    Intel ‘Downfall’: Severe flaw in billions of CPUs leaks passwords and much more

    So pretty much if someone else doesn't use my laptop, I don't let someone remote access, or DL certain software, I'm pretty much OK...... So, is this a BIOS update or what, because I also don't want to risk MSI disabling my 2nd m.2 bay I add for my laptop?

    Anyone know of a MP3 tag editor for Android that is comparable to AIMP?

    I been using AIMP on Windows for years and it works great for me, but the Android version only has audio playback and the creator has no plans to include that feature for the app. I want to edit my MP3 collection tags via Android also.

    Your Ubisoft account can be suspended and subsequently permanently deleted for 'inactivity,' taking your games library with it

    Good to know just incase I want to play that one lone game of SplinterCell....... FFS UbiShit, how much user data takes up at your data center!? Not like players' game installs are on your side on the interwebbs. I haven't logged into my Steam account for years and they still have it.
