  4. Demi Lovato entering rehab (2018)


  5. Hmm, I could exchange the $80 Target giftcard (well, it's a $50 and a $30, but whatever) for just over $65 on Amazon.com...should I do it? 

    1. Br3tt96


      So you have $80 in target gift cards that can be transferred to  Amazon at $65? 


      I buy all my stuff of Amazon or Newegg so that'd be a no brainier. lol

  6. I bless the rains down in Aaaafricaaaaaa

  7. Today
  8. I just found 80 USD of Target giftcards in the center console of my car...if only Target shipped to Canada. Oh well, guess that means it just gets sent to the PO box in Michigan :D

    1. BuckGup


      Why not just convert it to cash online?

    2. kelvinhall05


      How do I do that?

    3. kelvinhall05


      I was thinking of buying Amazon gift cards but I'm not sure if that would work...

  9. 2990WX 4100MHz casually pulling in the region of 700W in Cinebench: https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_ryzen_threadripper_2990wx_review,31.html


    Considering that CB doesn't touch the GPU unless the GPU test is ran...yikes.


    Although 1.4V seems a tad high for 4100MHz. Could definitely be done lower.

    1. Ryan_Vickers


      Wow, pretty much exactly what I expected.  What a huge surprise /ssssssssssss


      Glad to see someone finally tried it lol.  Can't wait to see what everyone who was freaking about the 250 W says to this.

  10. Hi, I created my account today.

  12. Finally properly building out my test lab. Just waiting for my mini rack and UPS.

    Thank You. :P

  14. Smh why ain't this ever release


  15. My Bluray drive seems to be struggling at installing anything from a CD or DVD at a decent speed, while my DVD drive managed to install Oblivion (both discs) almost instantly. Definitely glad that I didn't remove the DVD drive from my rig.

      I'm really tempted to actually get a program to rip my blu-rays. Yesterday because my ISP (fuck Telstra) decided to disconnect phone lines (so no ADSL) for unannounced "maintenance" (mobile towers also went down-couldn't even make emergency calls), I couldn't even watch any of my BR because the software relies on the internet for the decoder.

      Perfect example of why most BR also inlcude a DVD copy. Movie studios not understanding that DRM only hurts consumers, BR sales, and creates pirates.

      @Dan Castellaneta You forgot using them for emulating consoles when you don't have space for games you own

    4. paddy-stone


      I like my blu-ray drive, admiteddly it now has an external housing and only comes out when I need it though :)


      I have ripped my dvd/blu-rays for years, I hate the crap that comes with them like forced advertising and trailers, plus I can keep the original pristine, and also make digital copies at a decent bitrate without having to keep buying more HDDs every month.

  16. RX 570 or RX 580? Both the same MSI model, 570 has 4GB of VRAM and the 580 has 8.

      The only thing I've ever seen that used more than 4GB @1080p was the Unigine Super Position benchmark at 4K. 

      wait what

    3. DrMacintosh


      Lol oops. Was distracted. 


      Meant to say ive seen nothing use more than 4GB at 1080p and that the only thing I’ve seen that used more than 4GB is the 4K benchmark. 

    4. Ryan_Vickers


      Yeah I play at 1080p with 4 GB of VRAM and while I don't try every game out there or always run the latest stuff by any means, I can't say I've had any issues.

  17. Recommend video to watch.




  18. I found a way to lose my GPU somehow



    1. Tech_Dreamer

      LOL, it reminds me of McAfee antivirus. Way too many processes. 

    3. DrMacintosh


      Also AMDs software is better overall so idc is there are a few extra processes running. 

    4. DrMacintosh


      Also I install everything, you can disable all of those things when updating/installing. So no biggie.  

  22. The planest names in the world:

      Dan Castellaneta


      Who the fuck is named Gord?

    2. OJTheAviator


      For a second I thought you were talking about planet names. I thought to myself "o.O I am pretty sure those aren't planets, especially Dick and Rod". xD

  24. if you dont worship women youre toxic masculinity laides first guys because femenism is empowering equality 

    1. TVwazhere


      6/10 shitpost

    2. DrMacintosh


      Modern feminism, the way I see it, promotes that women are better than men. Back when it was just about equality nobody had any major issues, now that its about crucifying men I am put off by the whole movement. 

    3. Tech_Dreamer


      Classic example of , You either die a hero or live long enough to see you become the villain you fought. but don't get them wrong , i do think they need to exist, even in a mild extreme form regardless the hate,  it's a sorta balance i guess, shit still happens & some are bullied in modern age  , ironically mostly from peers pretending to support them & standing besides them , it's a subtle hierarchy still, oppressed in a controlled environment in cases , let alone escalating violence in between known parties . but the current vocal majority tends to avoid actual danger spots & relax in & is enthusiastic in exercising it at safe spots where they wont be criticized back.  it's kinda like watching an adult pick a fight at kindergarten,

  25. Btw here's some UK Pizza Express gift cards :)

      do they deliver to the states? xD

    3. AluminiumTech


      @FloRolf Right now I'm staying in Canterbury which is in Kent although I'm not from the UK but that's a long story for another time :P.


      If you want used stuff then eBay or CEX (uk.webuy.com) is good. CEX also has physical stores in some places.

    4. FloRolf


      Thanks my dude. But ye, I remember you were in Hongkong for long. 

  26. Found an interesting document about Minds.com




    Well worth a read if nothing else if you're interested in blockchain at all its an early example of how its being used and applied.  I also have to appreciate the transparency they give about what they're doing with the platform.
