    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    Did a case swap from a Lian Li Lancool II to a the new Lian Li O11 Dynamic Evo RGB. Changed over to EDPM tubing and added a sensor panel using a generic 5" touchscreen, a 3D printed mount, and Aquasuite. Unfortunately the GPU > CPU loop I had intended to use a fitting that I forgot to order so...

    Make sure you select activate later when adding to cart. By default it sets to activate today which puts you down the carrier flow.

    Pixel 8 / Pixel 8 Pro / Pixel 8a

    Cancelled my order with Google and bought from Best Buy instead. Same deal with the watch but you get $550 for the P7 Pro instead of $420 with Google. No choices on the watch though if you want LTE or other color bands.

    Looks like Linus Media Group is going to have an external investigation regarding the allegations against them. When it rains, it pours.

    Gamers Nexus vs LinusTechTips: Smackdown

    I unsubbed from all their channels. I don't rely on a single outlet for information and I found them pretty entertaining but the whole Billet Labs prototype thing was just insulting. The double down response posted on the LTT forums was just icing on the cake. :facepalm:

    Bambu Labs Printers

    Just note on the hydra mod that you won't be able to fully close the AMS last I checked. I ended up reversing it because of this.

    Bambu Labs Printers

    So far I've only used filament from Bambu, eSun (it seems to be Bambu's OEM supplier), Cookiecad, and Ziro. The only compatibility I've run into for the AMS is with 250g small spools.

    Bambu Labs Printers

    Received the Whambam PEX plate and I absolutely love the mirror finish. Highly recommended but it does require some gcode modification to the hot plate. For PLA no glue required.

    Bambu Labs Printers

    Bambu Labs Printers

    So I received my Bambu X1 Carbon on Thursday and after about 30 minutes, I was making my first print. This is my first 3D printer and I have zero previous 3D printing experience. I'm quite blown away by the speed and accuracy. First print out of the box with eSun PLA+ on the stock cool...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I picked up Spiderman Remastered over the weekend. It's a really fun and beautiful game so far. My only gripe is that there isn't much variety in the random crime missions. I can't count how many times I've done pretty much the same drug busts, car chases, or saving civilians from accidents...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DWF 34″ QD-OLED 165Hz FreeSync Premium Pro (3440 x 1440)

    My LG 34GP83A-B just past 2 years old so I went ahead and ordered this. I was really tempted by the original but this F variant seems good enough. Anyone have pictures of it to a stand? I can't really tell based on the stock stand how it sits VESA mounted.

    The reason I still use my Quest 2 over the Index is purely because of Airlink. I'm not sure it's worth the jump to $1500 though given the specs.

    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro enhanced trade-in credit and promo gift card @ BestBuy

    I'm hoping as well. The P6 Pro has been leaps and bounds better with Android 13 except for 5G connectivity. It's hilariously awful in comparison to the S22+ side by side, even after an RMA with Google. It's really sad because the phone is otherwise much better to use than the S22+ from a...

    EVGA no longer making GPUs!

    Pretty interesting. So they'll run out of sellable inventory by 2022 and keep some for warranty. I wonder how that is going to impact warranty claims a few years from now.

    sfsuphysics Account was Compromised.

    Mandating password changes every 90 days will just force users to slightly alter their passwords every 90 days, keeping it easy to remember such as Password1, Password2!, Password3!!, etc. I would just recommend ensuring a strong password is created the first time or maybe a one time forced...

    Zenless Zone Zero

    I'm interested in this. I picked up Genshin Impact a month or so ago and after getting past the animeness of it (I'm not an anime fan at all), the gameplay is surprisingly pretty good. It reminds me a lot of Breath of the Wild with a lot of room for variety in gameplay with different characters...

    High flow filter for loop - does one exist?

    So I just so happen to get my new 150mm glass for my Aquacomputer Utilitube to upgrade my 100mm. Looks like I had more stuff in my loop than I thought. Thankfully the D5 Next has a built in filter that I can clean easily but I was surprised even after cleaning out my radiators.

    High flow filter for loop - does one exist?

    Ah gotcha. Yeah I saw multiple recommendations for cleaning out a new radiator but it was pretty clean when I ran it through. I have a Heatkiller radiator. Presumably though once fully cleaned, you shouldn't ever need a filter right? Or is there further risk of contamination over time I wonder?

    High flow filter for loop - does one exist?

    What sort of coolant are you using that requires cleaning? It's been about a year on mine and I've drained it twice with no visible indications of requiring cleaning. Using Mayhem X1 clear.

    No Man's Sky - a procedurally generated sand box space exploration game

    I played Star Citizen the past couple of days during the limited free experience (I think it's good until May 31) and while it's a technical marval, the fun aspect is really hard to find unless you enjoy the realism. I had to watch an hour of videos just to understand how to leave the planet...

    No Man's Sky - a procedurally generated sand box space exploration game

    I really love what Sean and the NMS team has been doing with the game, especially the last major update that addressed a ton of space combat issues. What I really want them to do is significantly improve the planet biome generation (multi-biomes please!), improve the water, and add a ton more...

    College Laptop Advice Needed

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I'm on my second playthrough (not NG+, just new character) with full INT. I ran to Caelid, picked up the meterorite staff, and it just absolutely wrecks with rock throw. I keep an Uchi for melee and bust out Moonveil if things start to look dire. I just cleared Rennala using rock throw only...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    I'm about level 120 and I just hit the consecrated snowfield. Rivers of blood + Mimic is OP as hell and made some bosses get annhilated in seconds. I think for NG+ I'm going to try a full INT/magic build.

    Surface Pro 8 worth it as a Tablet only? Is it ready as just a tablet ?

    A lightly used Pro X might be a better option. I use a Pro X exclusively for work travel and Windows on Arm has come a long way. I see them for dirt cheap on the used market all the time. I believe Firefox has an arm compiled version.
