    WTB Affordable 1070 Ti tier card

    Speaking of Maxwell, I just picked up a Quadro K2200 for under $80 on ebay. Specifically for the nvenc encoding with OBS. Pretty much like a 750ti, but slower and with 4gb of vram. There's a listing here on the forum for sale.

    WTB: Lenovo Ideapad 5 4800u 16GB

    I ordered the 4500u version from Amazon with 16gb of RAM during 4th of July weekend listed at $599. It's been great, the screen is definitely not color accurate, and I have been using it as a mobile streaming computer with OBS, with a single camera. Besides the screen, it's been great.

The first one I bought in 2016 or so from him. 2) There is adapters that convert USB2 front panel connections to USB3 motherboard headers. Youll have USB2 speed out of those ports. Here is one on Amazon. 3) Check...

    Are Used Racks in Higher Demand These Days?

    I am using a Compaq MX 11800, made in Germany with Cherry Mx Brown switches. I think that would fit in your keyboard shelf. You might be able to fit a Cherry G80 11900 in there as well. Here is one of the compaq boards on Ebay I bought mine in 2014 for $30, and has been one of my favorite...

    Monitors sold out on Amazon

    I set up a price alert on Camelcamelcamel for the AOC 24G2 that I want to get. I am in need of a second monitor, since the 1440p 25in 60hz panel I have been using since 2014 is not great for FPS games.

    Monitors sold out on Amazon

    I suspect limited supply for a long while, even if the factories open up they might not be outputting the same amounts.

    Oh absolutely, especially the wraith stealth coolers on that come stock with the 65w CPUs. Pretty much an aluminum extrusion that has a fan on it.

    Monitors sold out on Amazon

    A lot of LCD panel factories in Wuhan.... So what we have been buying up was probably existing inventory. There are panel factories in other places like Korea, but all of the supply chains for components has been disrupted, and I am guessing the small factories that make components are also not...

    I would send Noctua an email with your original receipt. I did that with my Phanteks PH-TC14PE cooler that I got in 2014, with my amazon invoice, along with the invoice for my new Ryzen CPU and they sent me an AM4 mounting kit for free. If you arent the original owner, then you could probably...

    EposVox: NVENC vs AMF/VCE vs QuickSync vs X264 - ULTIMATE Encoder Quality Analysis 2020

    I use the NVENC encoder on a gtx 750ti, paired with a i5 4590s, in order to run OBS to stream to facebook live. Since it is a live camera stream with slides (church service), I was very surprised at the efficiency and quality of the stream. In the previous weeks I was using my own personal SFF...

    KWh charges, national survey?

    Endgame, no that ended in 2015. Also Hawaiian Electric is irritating. The Island of Kauai has an energy coop and is the only island not controlled by that monopoly, and they have 55% renewable power. Whereas HECO still buys power from a plant that burns coal, then has the gall to say that they...

    Older Corsair HX750 psu cable question

    No you do not need to plug that in. 8 pin EPS connector can do 300+ watts on its own. No way you are going to pull that much power out of one connector unless you decide to go ln2 overclocking.

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    I have a weird issue. I got a 3.2TB SX350 installed in my system along with my 825GB. Once I installed the driver for the 3.2, I no longer can see the 825 when I do the fio-status -a command. Both drive function perfectly fine in my system though.

    CPU for a home server?

    Also the 3200G/3400G are the same micro architecture (Zen+) as the 1600AF, so it really is an apples to apples comparison between the 2.

    If you are really worried about it, you can just get a heatsink for the drive. The benefits also include lower latency, and my favorite one, no cables!
