    whats the difference

    if you plug your fans into the motherboard, they can be speed controlled by either the mobo iteslef of fan curves. Plugging into the PSU, they just run full bore all the time.

    Camelot Unchained - New MMO Kickstarter Project

    Yeah I swore off kickstarters after getting burned by the torment remake, and I am glad I did not support the bards tale 3. That ended up a huge trashfire too. Only kickstarter I was happy with was Bloodstained, all the other ones I did heavly disappointed me.

    Tom's Hardware confirms it still has no credibility

    Window AC/Heater Units

    Yeah I would avoid the window unit. I have through wall A/C untis and they are expensive enough by themselves, the ones with a heater add about another $150-$200 to the price. Plus they usually need a specialty NEMA plug also due to the heater power draw, after all is said and done you are...

    AMD CPU List (Price/Wattage/nm/Cores/Threads)

    Wow the price on the 3900X has come down a lot so far. I paid $529 for mine back in november, and still consider it worth what I paid. It is also only $100 more than I paid for the 3770K I bought back in 2013 that this rig replaced.

    I still have that card in one of my secondary rigs, great card. I did have an issue with 2 of the fans dying on the card, but I did run it at high speed to keep it cool. Got a replacement fan set off amazon and card is good as new for $35.

    Just got my new Gig board. No factrory seal on box?

    No factory seal on the MSI mobo in my sig, and going back to even my old P3 and socket A boards did not either. About the only ones I can remember having seal are video cards.

    Prime Ultra Platinum vs Prime Ultra Titanium

    Titanium is more or less a waste of money for most people. The amount of power you will save versus the price difference, will take a very long time to recoup.

    Louis Rossmann DISMANTLES Apple's PR stunt "repair program"

    He does support right to repair, something we have for pretty much anything else. You arent forced to take your car to the dealer for repairs , or appliances only to the manufacturer to fix. No reason apple should be special, and this would cut down on ewaste which is a serious problem now...

    Yeah I was sad when it died years ago, but I did end up replacing it with a sony FW900.So it did lead me to an upgrade.

    I just have a stack of old routers with the newest on the top. I have a netgear FVS318, with a FVS 338 next, and my current Asus RT-AC88U on top. 20 odd years worth of routing.

    SATA vs NVMe vs NVMe Gen4 tested by LTT

    Back 20-30 years ago, I got around boot times by just leaving my rig on 24/7. Only rebooted it if I needed to so I did not need to wait. Once I got my first SSD I stopped doing that.

    Sony CRT dying, any ideas?

    Yeah I have an old Sony G500 21 inch CRT from back in the day that stopped working years ago, I am pretty sure the flyback went out in it. I was never able to find someone close to check it out and fix it though, so I just kept it around in case I ever did.

    How does Windows see more Ram than the BIOS?

    At least it isnt like the old days when you put more memory than supported the board wouldnt even post. Like the time I put an extra 256 MB in my Asus intel 815 board....512MB was the cap.

    Why do inexpensive highly reviewed "good" headsets all have trash mics?

    I agree, push to talk was invented for a reason. We had a guildie that refused to use PTT, and we all ended up muting him on discord. It took him 2 weeks before he figured out no one was listening to him anymore.

    What is wrong with my curved videocard?

    Wow that is some serious bend in that card....thats about the worst Ive ever seen. No backplate for support, heavy cooler, best combo for the win.

    Graphics Card Autopsy - MSI 980 Ti "Golden Edition"
