    Can anybody get me up to speed on the state of the CPU game right now?

    I'm currently on a well aged Ivy-E hex. My next build will gladly be a 3700x with a 5700xt or better if the bigger Navi is out by then.

    FS: Actiontec 10/100 Moca Adapters, C By GE Smart Lights, Tivo Roamio Cable/OTA Setup w/ Lifetime

    If you're not using Moca adapters to replace as much WiFi as possible in your home, you're missing out. I've been using Moca adapters for YEARS and they beat wifi, powerline, and any other "home networking" short of actual gigabit ethernet. The ONLY things that use Wifi in my home are laptops...

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    I have tried it on my Amazon FireTV which outputs dolby 5.1 with everything else, no go. I've tried it with my Chromecast Ultra which outputs Dolby 5.1 with dolby 5.1 with everything else, no go. There are no apparent options in the settings either. Also, if you're wondering my sound system...

    Stock boosting to 4.5 is usually on 1 or 2 cores. Not all 12.

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    I could not stand discovery and maybe got two episodes into season 2. I despise it. Picard on the other hand I not only watch, but I enjoy. TNG it is not, but I can watch it. The TNG, DS9 era of good or great Trek is dead, LONG DEAD.

    WiFi 6 wireless routers with WiFi 5 devices?

    Pfsense requires very modest hardware to get it's job done. I have an ancient low power Ivy Bridge dual core running mine and it runs like a top even with a home brew VPN running as well. Unless you're consistantly pushing gigabit in or out, you don't need a ton of horsepower to get it done...

    Does the adapter sit in the old slot and move it up? I'm looking at the amazon link but it's not clear how it works.

    AMD 600-Series Chipset Expected to Land Before 2020 Ends

    I could phathom Intel going direct to PCI-E 5 to save face. But I don't see that happening either. I think both will be on 4 with the Next gen. We'll see. Only time will tell.

    Thank you. Malventano in his PcPer days did a mail bag chat specifically addressing this at one point. Every time I try to tell the same thing to people, they look at me like I have a horn. For 99% of home users, thermal throttling will never be an issue.

    In theory this is just the same reference design with their sticker on it. No different than what sabrent and many others were doing. It has the same string of numbers along the top of the PCB like many of the reference PCBs do.

    This is the craziest re-badge job I've ever seen. But according to the images this an 1TB E12 based drive for right now (1/15/20) for $120. PIONEER lol... yeah the folks that make head units and turntables...

    Creative Super X-Fi Gen 2

    I haven't used ANY of the Creative tertiary accessories, speakers, amps, you name it. But a Creative sound card has been in EVERY single gaming machine I've ever built. I've never had an issue I could attribute to a Creative driver issue and I've played AAA titles in nearly every major...

    Best mATX Board for Ryzen 3600

    The QLC definately doesn't perform as well as the TLC. Now that being said if you need 2TB is still better then a harddrive so do what you gotta do.

    PCI express 3.0 vs PCI express 4.0

    In a system with 20 lanes or 1000 billion lanes like threadripper pci-e 4 doesn't change *much*. Where you will see benefits is in the future where severly limited chipsets have much more bandwidth with their fewer lanes.

    PC gaming is in a decline — and deserves to be

    Yup.... I'm almost 40. I've seen these articles every year of my adult life. So played out. I will agree with some others though... A lot of titles recently have sucked. But the industry as a whole is healthy.

    I freaking hate USB type C connectors.

    Sounds like a pixel problem. My first type C phone was my nexus 6p. Now I have a OnePlus 5t. But had/have zero issues with the type C connector. I agree with others. I love typeC more than any other type of connector.

    The wife finally handed over the razer hammerhead for my birthday last night. They sound really good for about 1/2 the price of airpods.

    What were your top smartphones of 2010-2019?

    I loved all my Nexus' up to the 6p. I thought the Pixels were way overpriced until the 3a. My wife and stepson have them and it's a great phone for the money. I've had good luck with the moto G series. We've had various versions from the G5-G7 and they've all been solid phones for the money...
