    WTB: AMD FX-8350, 8370, 9370, or 9590

    Just as a PSA, those 9000s are like space heaters...might be best to keep away. And if you dong find anything here over on fleabay you can find 8320s for like 30 bucks where an 8350 is more than twice that. 8320 is just a few ticks slower...that is what I did on the last fx upgrade I did for...

    Shed keeps getting broken into

    Illegals aren't the whole problem. A lot want to come here for a better life. I get that. Minimum wage is like $19....a day. Here it is 19.50/hr. But then some get here and good intentions get corrupted. We see it all the time. Some workers work too hard and get told by others to slow...

    Shed keeps getting broken into

    Par for the course here...the government and press here vilifies crop producers. Some in the legislature call us slave drivers. Truth of the matter is we are getting close to be regulated out of business. The quad I mentioned earlier wasn't even our quad. It belonged to a manager that lives...

    Shed keeps getting broken into

    Washington...I think shotguns are still allowed for now. The police are allowed to chase bad guys again, so there is that I guess. Prosecutors on the otherhand...... Last year we had a quad in the process of being stolen and called the sheriff. Caught them red handed. All he was allowed to...

    Shed keeps getting broken into

    I have a shed that is getting broken into twice a week. A few weeks ago, $24k worth of crop protection materials were stolen and ever since then, the perps are coming twice a week looking for another score. I want to get some cameras up because this is getting ridiculous. Now for the...

    Opinion: Could Broadcom buy Intel

    No one is buying intel. Lina Khan ain't allowing M&A these days...and even if she allowed it then the EU and UK would have to sign off. How long did Microsoft and Activision take? The Adobe figma deal died because it couldn't get through.

    Video camera recording system

    I need some help getting pointed in the right direction... We have a remote farm that we want to mount a couple of cameras. One camera as a sort of area shot the other more directly at the ground. When it looks stormy, then be able to watch or pull up archived footage to look for hail. The...

    10gb questions….

    I can echo this... When I got my house back in 2009, I ran a ton of cat5e all over the house. Every room has multiple cat5e drops because I don't trust wifi. About a year ago, built a nas and did iSCSI over 10gbe for the gaming computers to store the games. I thought 'well, either my cat5e...

    Asus Hero Crosshair X570 VIII vs. MSI Meg B550 Unify for 5950X

    I too have a couple of 5950xs. I think one is better, but it seems when I actually put the screws to them they are about the same. Both are under water with PBO enabled and a custom set core offset. With some time (mainly at night when you sleep) running core cycler you can get each core...

    Oldest gamer I know

    my grandfather would be 99 this year...he died in 2008 from dementia. He bought an apple II when they came out and played the helicopter game with the two paddles. It wasn't a powerful enough machine, so he quickly got an at&t 6300 (I think) and got MS flight sim and monopoly. His favorite...

    that is correct. I have two drives that can do 4ks, but i had to install different firmware.

    Target joins Best Buy and discontinues sales of DVD's and Blurays

    I'm not surprised. That said, I still only buy physical media. I have a 120in screen and a projector with an atmos system in the basement with an oppo 4K player that made getting a GPU during the apocalypse look easy. Streamed content is wonky...especially in the black parts of a picture...

    Need advice on packing an open box motherboard for a friend

    I use pirate ship to figure out shipping....sometimes a regular box is cheaper than a flat rate box. I've seen where cardboard packed over the cpu socket has been used when there isn't the guard. Maybe you could go back/call and ask microcenter if they have any spare guards.

    Cities Skylines 2

    That is gross... So my 5950x is like 75% of a 14900k, I should be able to get 250k. a 5950x is just two 5800x put together...so now we are down to 125k. I have an fx4300...maybe I can recreate White Bluffs, Washington

    9950X and 9950X3D is going to be terrific.

    So you're like me...want one but don't really have a purpose. Heck, that is why I have a 5950x. A 5800x would be just find....I can only spend money so fast on Amazon.

    So, what are you rocking for VR?

    I prefer the google imagery in both situations to bing. i also use google earth a lot for work stuff, so it may be familiarity.

    Hp reverb g2 with a 5950x and 3090, although thinking about downgrading to a 3080. Only game has been flight sim, although want to try and get minecraft java figured out. Not sure what else is worthwhile.

    Radiator bolts for slim fans?

    I get mine at our local True Value hardware. They have a whole of aisle of fasteners. We also have a place here called Tacoma Screw. And yes, put a nut on before you cut to essentially rethread the screw. When you cut it, it messed up the entry point and you'll always cross thread. The...

    Good advice... Got to be careful with everything. I did pick up a used pump off ebay. Then a rad that had a mangled box, but the rad itself was fine.

    Best CPU upgrade options?

    No experience with the newer platforms but as of right now, my favorite mobos are gigabyte. A few months ago I had to rma an asus z590 and b550. msi used to be my favorite...but I had an x299 die on me. Only have one asrock...seems fine. The bios seems kinda wonky to me, but I'm used to...

    32in 1440p vs 4k

    I've been running a 32in 1440p display at both home and work for about 18mo. I just sat down to my old display, a 32in 1080p and was amazed at how much grainier it was. I've been thinking about getting a 32in 4k display at home...how much would that annoy me at work with "only" 1440p?

    No vga out

    I run an msi b450 a pro max with a 3600x, 32gb ram and rx 570 for a minecraft server running ubuntu. This morning I shut it down to install a 3080. When I started back up the monitor went on and the cursor blinked and then stopped. The VGA debug light just stays on. Swapped back to the...

    PCIe Express 7.0 specs version 0.5 now available to PCI-SIG members, on track to launch in 2025

    Yeah, that. Seems a bit pointless until we actually have devices catch up with even PCIe gen4 and then the mobos are going to have to do a better job at divvying out PCIe lanes. I have a avermedia capture card. It runs PCIe gen 2 x4. Their best run card looks to run at Gen3 x4...

    Need 16x-8x configuration at same time. Are there any consumer boards?

    I have an idea...granted, I don't know much about QSFP, so not sure how good of an idea this is... It looks like you can get either a intel 810 series NIC or a mellanox connectx 5 ex series nic. Now they say they are 100Gbps cards. Sooo, they run at PCIe 4.0 x16. You're not after that much...

    How to quiet down a portable AC unit in the PC room?

    Yup...hotter. This was a question on my 1995 IB physics exam and I answered it as the temp would stay the same. Still not sure how it was graded because efficiency wasn't mentioned in the question. It has only been bugging me for nearly 30 years.

    Need 16x-8x configuration at same time. Are there any consumer boards?

    That is the same problem as every other board. you put the GPU in slot #1 and it runs at x16. Then, you skip slot #2 and put the card in slot #3 which is x16 long, so the card will fit, but it only has the pins for x4, so it runs x4....not the x8 that is being requested. This dumb pci-e...

    Trust Newegg reviews for NVMe SSD? - lower cost or "big name" like Samsung?
