    Time to assemble a new router

    That's exactly what it was / is. I agree, I've worked in datacenters with thousands of machines. I've never seen one either. That being said when I built the machine five or six years ago people were saying that the BSD drivers for Chelsio were far more compatible than Intel at the time. I think...

    Time to assemble a new router

    Honestly I completely agree with you and ran this way for years. TrueNAS on its own machine, pfSense on another, and a third for Proxmox. The only reason I decided to virtualize everything is I'm bringing in a ton of storage and whatever power I've saved from shutting down the other two severs...

    Time to assemble a new router

    For what it's worth I just redid my home setup about a month ago and decided to make TrueNAS a virtual machine as well as move from pfSense to OPNsense and virtualize that too. It has been fine for the last few weeks but wouldn't you know it today I woke up and everything was down. Turns out the...

    Gamers Nexus vs LinusTechTips: Smackdown

    I think you are woefully overestimating the impact this will have. Remember a few weeks ago when Reddit threw a tantrum and boatloads of subs went private? As far as I am concerned, Reddit is now operating exactly how it was before it started. Give this a few weeks and no one will care.

    That's exactly why I wanted to dual boot lol. I'm sick of Microsofts shenanigans

    I think people have done it. The problem I hear is basic stuff like web browsers are way out of date so it doesn't make a good daily driver.

    Yeah dual boot. I wanted to try gaming on it so I wanted to be able to use bare metal.

    OK so I'm going to install Linux on my primary desktop. Should I dual-boot windows or run it in a virtual machine?
    I just did this a few weeks ago. I was upgrading my NVMe drive though so I used the old one for Arch and the new one for Windows.

    EVGA going officially under?

    I don't think anyone is gatekeeping [H] behind how much you spend on a PC although I can see how my post implies that. I couldn't care less if you spent $100 or $10,000 on a PC. I completely agree with you that [H] is about tinkering with [H]ardware regardless of price. My problem is with the...

    EVGA going officially under?

    My understanding is that Kingpin motherboards are made for extreme / LN2 overclocking. They have stuff like easily accessible pins for voltage monitoring, stuff a normal user has absolutely no use for which is why they are more expensive. I find it funny that we are on [H] of all places and...

    NAS drives stress testing

    Every time I upgrade my NAS drives I run badblocks on them. That is not a short test though, it took days so I don't know if that fits what you are looking for. See:

    EVGA going officially under?

    For those who didn't bother to open the page and read the article ;) Update 07:45 UTC: We've heard from workers at EVGA Spain "it's just another day at the office". So maybe it was only Kingpin/the OC team in TW that has resigned, or the whole story is completely untrue. Even before the update...

    Diablo 4 review: The horror’s back, and we couldn’t be happier

    Fucking amen. I put over 1000 hours in Diablo 3 and stopped playing the day they announced Diablo Immortal although admittedly I did play this last season. I want to be hyped about Diablo 4 and I want to be playing it right now, but I cannot fucking stand the state of gaming anymore. I'm so...

    NVIDIA Prepares H100 NLV GPUs With More Memory and SLI-Like Capability

    I don't think this is anything new. We have a bunch of servers with A100s at work, 4 GPUs per node, and they are paired off with two GPUs having three bridges like shown here. I assume they are now being sold in linked pairs specifically rather than if you happen to have two in a system you have...

    LastPass says no passwords were compromised following breach scare

    I did as well and deleted my account after one of the previous updates about this breach. The paranoid person in me still wants to change most of my passwords now despite the fact that I'm pretty sure no one would ever actually brute force my master password to that vault. I might start working...

    Portal with RTX

    Finished my playthrough with a 3080Ti. 1440p, DLSS on quality, ultra settings. Got somewhere between 30-50 FPS the entire game. No crashes and on the latest driver. There were a couple of times where I was impressed by the ray tracing. Over all it is much prettier but had I not played the game...

    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    Everything I have been reading over the last few days agrees. It should be replaceable. I ordered mine over the weekend. I went for a 512GB because I could. It's within my capability to open it and replace an SSD but just in case I have any issues with it I don't want to worry about having...

    Nvidia driver update improves 3000 series performance

    Agreed with keeping old versions. I usually check /r/nvidia on reddit for the most recent driver post and check the comments. There are always people who test / benchmark the new drivers and give opinions on whether or not it is worth it to upgrade. I've seen these people say stick with versions...

    Nvidia Shield TV Pro $169 @ Amazon - DEAL OVER

    I bought a shield in 2018 and I've had two instances where it started acting weird. Once it wouldn't play any videos without buffering, and once it was super slow to do anything. Both times I did a factory reset and it came back running as good as it ever did. Annoying, yes, however for how...

    Guy buys a 3090ti from Amazon gets Sand instead

    I went through this in 2018 with a 2080Ti. UPS box was fine. The interior box was shrink wrapped and it was only after I opened the box and found a 1070 that I realized that the EVGA seals were definitely lifted and resealed. I immediately contacted Amazon and was told "That's not possible"...

    What is the best AntiMalware that is light on system resources and still good

    People recommend it because it works fine. See For something free that is already installed it is hard to beat. I honestly cant remember the last time I had a virus pop up from normal web browsing. The last thing Defender picked up was a file in a...

    Goldeneye 007 (Xbox One/Series X|S & Nintendo Switch)

    This is exactly what I wouldn't want. I love GoldenEye. I would have replayed it numerous times by now however I cannot get over the single thumb stick for aiming and moving. I'd hope that they update it to use two joysticks or if they want to remake original controllers have an option to play...

    Cyberpunk 2077

    Id argue some of the side quests are the best quests in the game. Depending on which side quests you did or did not do you may not have even had all of the options open for the ending. You could play them now. You could roll a new character with a new build and try a different style and play...

    Amazon’s New World game is bricking GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards

    Did you even read what you linked? The first article, yes EVGA said it was their fault. The second article is PowerGPU saying they expected more failures, not EVGA. And as far as I'm aware there are a bunch of Gigabyte cards having issues now. So either EVGA and Gigabyte both messed up, or...

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    I have the exact same issue and have always done the exact same solution. Keep all fans at 20% minimum using Precision X1. Works like a charm. No idea why it wasn't working for you previously but I can say with certainty it works fine doing it this way. The only time you get that annoy sound is...

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    That really doesn't make any sense. Why have an exclusive event at all then? Actually that brings up another point, I assume all of the normal people entering tomorrow behind the elite members now? If so they'll likely never have a chance.... I suppose at the very least this was all good...
