    Arctic Liquid Freezer II "recall" / Service Kit for units built late 2021/Early 2022.

    Glad I noticed this, haven't had any issues yet, but I did request my service kit.

    Backup Solution and File Server

    I've had a number of synology devices and highly recommend them if they're in your budget. Extremely easy to setup and manage.

    Vox Media Goes After YouTubers That Mocked The Verge PC Build Video

    The Rise of Retrocomputing

    I keep my first computer at work, I've removed the original scsi drive for safe keeping and am running an image of my original drive off an SD card.

    Inexpensive, simple, full mechanical keyboard?

    Had very good luck with my Das keyboard - it's been over a decade and it's still trucking as my "office" keyboard - everyday use for the past decade or so.

    Out of curiosity, have you run the Noctua fans (with the splitter) to one of the PWM headers on your motherboard?

    Logitech Switch Issues

    Here's what I ordered: No idea if the ones you linked would cause any trouble (and depending on the model of your mouse they might be the right ones.) I just looked for the Japanese equivalent to the...

    Logitech Switch Issues

    If you like the mouse replacing their cheap switches is pretty easy and very inexpensive. I replaced the Chinese-made Omrons in both of my G5s with Japanese-made Omrons when one of the switches started flaking out, cost me less than $5 and took MAYBE 15 minutes from start to finish. I just...

    How long to make payment?

    Wow. Most of you guys would "annoy" me as a buyer - unless you're responding to PMs withing a few minutes (under 5) or explicitly state you need a response by XX:XX before you move on to the next buyer - I have a job that isn't really conducive to me sitting on the forum all day waiting to hear...

    Tesla disables feature after car is purchased, claims feature 'wasn't paid for'.

    Not going to lie, I'm not dismissing that as a possibility. **edit** Think things through a tiny bit before you jump to conclusions, or just look at the cost of service for a decent mechanical watch - last time I sent my Breitling in for service it cost $900 just to crack the back of the case...

    Cellphone Radiation

    Cellphones causing cancer?! What's next - are you going to tell me a pint of bourbon and two packs of cigarettes a day increases my "risk" of cancer? Hogwash.

    Linus from Linus Tech to Possibly Retire

    Wait... explain to me how the video title "I've been thinking of retiring" is what he's "supposed to do" when he's taking a vacation... I mean I'm really struggling here - what else could he have done?! And don't give me some obvious answer like drop a video with the title "I'm going on vacation...

    Linus from Linus Tech to Possibly Retire

    Maybe I'm missing something here but... why does anyone on this site care? If you're [H]ard you passed the "LTT" level a LONG time ago. He's got a purpose, but that purpose is mostly teaching fortnite players which mouse his sponsor told him to promote. I've watched a handful of his videos and...

    what would be good DAC

    Sounds like you just need a tweak from Coconut Audio. **edit** To be clear that was sarcasm. BUT aside from a cable issue or ground loop I really REALLY doubt it's a "DAC" issue. I've tested out my AMB gamma 2 (optical and USB) against my Crosshair Hero VIII onboard and some cheap chinese...

    Craigslist finds

    Not Craigslist but still, I had to come to gloat. I snagged a pair of nearly mint B&W DM601 series 2 for *drumroll please* $29.99 at my local Goodwill today. Having been to different Goodwill stores in WI I realize they're not all the same, so for reference the ones by me are basically a thrift...

    AMD Ryzen 4000 Rumored to Offer Around 17% Increased Performance

    Remember when your $3000 rig with a Pentium II 333mhz was the envy of all your friends and basically obsolete in 2-3 years? Pepperidge farm remembers. If the 4000 series ends up being 15-20% faster than my 3900x... SIGN ME UP! It's been too long since I upgraded rig for a reason other than boredom.

    3900X Temps - 95C in Prime95

    Not really apples to apples since I'm running a custom loop (420 + 280) but when I run Prime95 (small FFT) it'll jump to ~75 right away and then slowly creep up and stabilize around 79-80 after half an hour or so and the clocks hover at ~3.9Ghz

    T-Mobile says it owns the color magenta

    If Lemonade is using a different color T-Mobile will likely lose the lawsuit. And I will continue to act like a condescending wise-ass, even though there's nothing to be "solved" in this thread. Apparently you are stupid. A trademark is about identifying goods or services, not "providing" them.

    T-Mobile says it owns the color magenta

    All you raging types do realize that if they DON'T take people to court for using "their" shade of magenta they lose their ability to claim it as a trademark right? This is pretty basic - no different than if Tiffany sued some random pawn shop for using Pantone 1837 as a major color in their web...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019

    I'm old too (33, nearly 34 ;) ) but I can't use any LMG to save my life. A fully kitted M4 or mp5 is my "go-to" primary, though half the time I'm just running around with my 1911 - it's awesome on hardcore.

    NordVPN Encryption Keys Stolen

    Maybe you're just too stupid to figure shit out? I mean on the one hand I get that you can't fix a sub-par IQ, but still I want to tell you to educate yourself. Either way you're "ignored" as far as this forum goes so respond or don't - I'm done feeding this troll.

    I'd been thinking about getting IEMs for a while, based on this thread I decided to snag the KS Z10 Pros over the weekend - figured for ~$40 I wouldn't be too upset if they were terrible. I have to say I'm impressed, they don't *quite* have the soundstage that my open-back cans do, but I'm...

    NordVPN Encryption Keys Stolen

    Just noticed this comment - I'm not sure where you disagree with me, you're agreeing that a 3rd party VPN is really only useful if you trust the 3rd party to keep your traffic private... right? That's essentially my position - that I expect my ISP to sell every scrap of info they collect on me...

    NordVPN Encryption Keys Stolen

    Come on, one more unsubstantiated and pointless comment and you can strike out in this thread completely. I know I shouldn't feed trolls, but shouting "you're wrong/naive/dumb" isn't offering an argument, it's just annoying. All you need to do to make it a weak ass argument is claim some form...

    NordVPN Encryption Keys Stolen

    I had ALL of my accounts compromised on thanksgiving day ~10 years ago. Bank accounts in overdraft, credit cards all maxed out, and a bunch of fraudulent ebay listings for high-end mac hardware on my ebay account. Because of that I now use MFA on any account I care about (yubikey or google...

    NordVPN Encryption Keys Stolen

    I'll be honest, I never understood the appeal of paying to use someone's VPN - I don't trust NordVPN (or any other commercial VPN, not picking on them specifically) any more than I do any website I visit. I just use the internet in a way that I wouldn't mind if every single keystroke I make were...

    Why doesn't anyone bring back the complexities of the original Rainbow 6 game?!

    I know the feeling. Oddly enough I think about that game any time I hear Clair De Lune - I always had a CD with that track in the CD-Rom drive playing in the background when I played the game, not sure why none of the other tracks "stuck" but that song makes me think of R6 EVERY time. And before...

    Californian ‘RoboCop’ had to handle its first crime, and it didn’t go well

    Why doesn't anyone bring back the complexities of the original Rainbow 6 game?!

    So it's been 21 years, but I really miss that level of immersion that the original game brought to the table. The idea that having one of your operators killed on a mission was a permanent thing was also pretty damn cool and WAY ahead of its time. Why are all the new "tactical" shooters so much...

    Epic paid $10.5 million upfront for Control exclusivity

    At least you can admit that there's *some* cost as far as time goes, but the whole "Non starter as consoles track you too" bit is irrelevant. I didn't argue the fact that consoles cost "hundreds" - I'm saying installing another launcher isn't "free." I'm not suggesting that everyone values their...
