    More Pictures of NVIDIA's Cinder Block-sized RTX 4090 Ti

    it's not changing it per say.. they're likely just using the enterprise PCB. that being said if AIB's are forced to use that PCB there's probably not going to be a whole lot of them in existence since the current high end coolers are already designed to dissipate 600w, i can't see them waste...

    WD HDD locked drive, trying to get back into pc repair, 1st client lol

    if all you're use to doing is hitting accept and ok without reading anything like 99.9% of people are then they don't know what they don't know. but yeah if i remember correctly you can access the bitlocker key through the microsoft account that was tied to that system.

    VRM temperatures of X570 chipset (Gigabyte X570S UD & X570S GAMING X) with 5950X (no OC)...?

    1. it's fine. if you're worried about it use USB headset/speakers or get a USB DAC. 2. won't cause any issues unless you're transfer large files for long periods of time. 3. it's probably the same board they're just listing it differently depending on the site.

    Reddit Communities Go Private in Protest Over Policy Adjustments

    have seen zero impact of that.. i still have to put reddit as a search term to even get it to suggest reddit links even though reddit is about 90% of my search quarries since it's the only usable source for 3D printing information.

    Reddit Communities Go Private in Protest Over Policy Adjustments

    too bad for you most of them use reddit as part of their training data pool.. either way reddit is an insanely useful site for data set training due to the fact that they have access to almost 18 years worth of scrapable data.

    SAMSUNG 980 PRO SSD 1TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe Gen 4 $66.49

    shit 10 minutes of that is just trying to get my damn gpu out because you can't reach the stupid clip. then another 10 minutes of me dropping and having to search for that tiny ass screw, lol. but i wouldn't want to deal with some of these boards with the overly complicated nvme covers/heatsinks...

    Is it true that WD does not honor warranties on 2.5" internal drives?

    for the most part they're not bad if you do keyword searches in the reviews.. typically i just look for a lot of "this product died after X months" and look for a trend in the reviews from early reviews and then from the newest reviews.. if it's just a couple people then i just ignore it. been...

    SAMSUNG 980 PRO SSD 1TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe Gen 4 $66.49

    meh i buy them as well.. spend 30 seconds installing and throwing it on the bottom of my case or spend 20 minutes pulling my gpu then fiddling with heatsinks and tiny arse screws just to install an nvme drive.. my times worth the cost, lol.

    Is it true that WD does not honor warranties on 2.5" internal drives?

    it depends on the drive.. some higher end OEM/component drives have warranites but most of the low end like WD blue, etc don't.. retail internal drives can be anywhere from 2-5 years while external can be 1-5 years. basically the warranty on the product the drives installed in would be as long...

    Windows 10 and 11 Are Ignoring Update Settings and Installing GPU Drivers

    dunno, i haven't changed anything in the update section of w10 other than what time i want it to restart at.. w11 i wouldn't be surprised since they're shifting more and more for mom and pop users that know nothing about driver updates. wonder if it's something tied to OEM keys maybe?

    Asus BIOS, AMD Overclocking: Accept Decline? Do I have to choose?

    it's just your standard warranty clause/warning bs.. the thing with overclocking those chips is that you lose single threaded boost unless you can overclock it to 4.2Ghz or higher all core. you're going to want the higher single threaded clocks with older games if you can't do that.. if you can...

    EVGA 3080ti XC3 Ultra Core Clock Issue

    Forza Motorsport(8) thread

    it's just a modified forza horizon system.. so instead of unlocking perks with CP's you buy mods.. it's a needless grind because that's all the rage right now. pretty much put the nail the coffin as far as me giving a crap about FM8.

    How AMD Zen Almost Didn't Make It | Stories of Ryzen, ft. Unreleased CPUs

    It's been ages - RX 6800 XT v RX 6950 XT v Geforce 4070 opinion

    yeah if you have the 6800XT and aren't gaming at 4k i'd say stick with it until at least july/august and see what happens with the 7800XT, there's potential it could ruffle some feathers or be a complete dud but unless RT is your priority or you want 4080/4090 performance i just can't see a...

    it's a limitation of the stacked cache having a maximum voltage of 1.35v since it's tied into the into the voltage supplied to the core where as the cache within the CCD isn't. at 1.4v the stacked cache fries it's self long before temperature is a concern. remember the stacking of the cache is a...

    PCI Express 7.0 Spec Hits Draft 0.3, 512GBps Connectivity on Track For 2025 Release

    won't hit the server market until at least 2029 assuming they hit the 2025 draft finalization they want and likely will never make it to the consumer market outside of specialized board unless desktops drastically change in layout standardization. edit, i'd also be surprised if we ever see pcie...

    AMD RMA - Is someone at AMD running a scam of some kind?

    wouldn't surprise me if they're getting screwed over by scammers with this 7800x3d issue so they're being told to crack down on it. this happened before when they were doing the gimped cpu deal for people to upgrade bios(can't remember which generation it was). then they were finding those cpu's...

    Fraud Alert: Newegg sold me a laptop w/ 48GB SSD, but it states 256GB SSD on the receipt

    GeForce RTX 5000 GPUs Rumored For A 2024 Release And Huge Performance Uplift

    7800X3D will be an utter failure of a CPU

    basically just said not to use it until the diy fix kit was made available and also gave the screw details to go buy your own non conductive screws yourself if you had a local hobby shop. as far as the 7800X3D/ASUS issue, he did.. not use XPO and/or manually lower the SOC voltage below 1.3v...

    7800X3D will be an utter failure of a CPU

    typically what he'll do is give companies a chance to respond. so if they're actually being responsive to him and are willing the setup a meeting like he asked then he's probably holding off on publishing the video unless they keep pushing it back. he did the same thing with the H1 issue where...

    Motherboard Asus TUF B550M-PLUS (no wifi) doesn't seem to support Crucial DDR4 3200
