  1. Past hour
  2. I know it’s comparable to their prices but their prices on those parts are high. I can get a sff Corsair unit for 80$. A 120 or 140mm AIO for 40-50$. it just feels 50-100$ too much. maybe if it was a 200mm AIO it would be worth it.
  3. I picked up another IR camera, converted to deep colour IR. A Nikon D7000, still dialing in the colours from the IR, it's much more sensitive than my old Canon 10d that was pure B/W IR. Spoilered for being mildly racy
  4. That doesn't look like corrosion to me, could you try using a qtip with isopropyl alchol to rub it off?
  5. Lets assume $125 for the PSU (it's the SGX650), $75 for AIO (price for M22, the one in the H1 should be more expensive) and $30 for the PCIe riser. That leaves $120 for the case. It's reasonable considering the competition. It's in the ballpark of upper-midrange tower cases and way below boutique SFF cases like the A4, M1 and Ghost S1. As for standalone, NZXT said they might make one if there is enough demand.
  6. People who ask for something and you offer to help but they never get back then in 3 months bring it up again I do video production and I’ve got this one client who doesn’t treat anyone right and is so bitchy no one wants to work with her. she complained about prices, our standard practices after she changed what she was after, her lack of professional communication, her acting like she know anything about how this industry works. so the short version. Customers who bitch when they don’t know.
  7. Waiting 3 days for “permission” to unlock my F1, again, is kinda depressing.


    Going back to LineageOS + Fdroid with no google stuff on it.


    Question: Do I side load proprietary apps I rely on and have on my iPhone?


    I was thinking no cos it goes against the spirit of what I’m trying to do.

  8. The MSI MAG272QR the OP mentioned is a flat VA monitor. I figure that with the MAG271CQR and its successor or a refresh, the MAG272CQR, would have a different panel if they are curved monitors to the MAG272QR's flat. That said, the MAG272s could perform similarly with all the quirks and flaws of the MAG271CQR. In that case, if you are looking for a 2560x1440, 144 Hz, 27" IPS monitor, then the LG 27GL83A and Pixio PX7 Prime I mentioned would be good. They can be bought at a lower price if you are willing to go for used/open box. In particular, Amazon Warehouse. The LG 27GL850 is more expensive and the Lenovo Legion Y27q-20 are more expensive at +$400. The Lenovo can be had for a lower price through student, military, and other discounts on Lenovo's site I think. These two monitors use a nano IPS panel by LG, but they -- I think both -- are wide gamut monitors and for some people, things may appear to be over-saturated to them. Thing is we do not know what kind of monitor you are looking for or what exactly your system is. The monitors you brought up, MSI MAG272QR and the AOC AGON AG322QC4 are VA monitors and the LG 27UK650-W is an IPS. VA monitors generally have better contrast than IPS and TN monitors, but suffer from poorer dark transitions times. That is to say, smearing or ghosting in dark scenes where ironically, VA monitors' advantage is generally better blacks than IPS and TN. There is also the issue of VA glow and most recent VA monitors are curved which some people may not like. IPS monitors generally have more accurate colors than TN and some VA monitors, but their response time, for all transitions and not dark transitions being noticeably worse like VA, until recently has been slightly worse than TN monitors and they suffer from IPS glow, an inherent trait due to how IPS panels are made. TN monitors have the best response time, but generally poorer contrast and color than IPS and VA. Although, a good TN monitor that is calibrated can have good colors. Regardless, TN's response time is the reason why professional competitive player opt for TN because performance trumps picture quality. A 2560x1440, 144 Hz, 27" TN monitor that could work for you is the Dell S2719DGF: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00N2L5CXO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2L77EE7U53NWQ&psc=1. I remember reading the older models have issues with color banding or burn-in. Not sure about this recent one or if Dell will do another revision. Another thing is the MSI and AOC are both 2560x1440, 144 Hz monitors while the LG 27UK650-W is a 3840x2160, 60 Hz monitor. We do not know what your use case is. That is to say, are you primarily gaming, coding, doing graphics work, etc.? This is a very generalized statement, but you can drive any resolution with any kind of hardware really. To be specific, though, gaming at 4K is going to be more demanding than 1440p or 1080p. You can have at least 60 FPS on any of the resolutions depending on what GPU you have, what game, and what settings. With regards to settings, ultra settings is said to be not as optimized and not that noticeable, but are much more demanding than high. For other stuff, well, it is up to you what resolution and size you want for you use cases. For example, 3840x2160 at 27" for some might be difficult to see text without scaling and sometimes scaling is not implemented well.
  9. I know I just hate that some companies use red PCBs in visible parts. For that 10$ I could just paint it.
  10. I did say, "If my calculations were correct" Just bought these, G.SKILL Trident Z Royal Series 256GB Thanks for the help everyone.
  11. yeah i didn't do my due diligence on identifying the nature of the tweet (or maybe the person in general), so that's totally on me ,_,
  12. I should probably grab a new picture of my PC and update my profile pick. 
    1 tweak left for NightHawk that will have to wait. I need to swap my new red WiFi card for my old one that is in my GF PC.


    so a little sorry my h105 is too thick for my case but my old motherboard had nothing at the top so it was fine. It was slightly moved out to use the 280mm rad mounts. Well now my board actually has some VRM so it is moved even farther out and only has 4 screws. 

  13. I've seen them in black as well. Hold tight let me find it https://www.pc-pitstop.com/u-2-sff-8639-nvm-ssd-to-pci-e-4x-adapter
  14. This is very similar to the one Linus has https://www.newegg.com/global/au-en/p/0Y3-00M7-000K2 just isnt available to Australia and has an m.2 slot as well that isnt needed
  15. I just checked your actual psu, the Silentio Supreme... Not too bad, it should be less noisy than described. How is your build? Does the psu get fresh air or does it have to use the already heated one from the inside of your pc?
  16. looks dope AF, already grinding my thinking gears if i wanna go for that for my next pc
  17. People who are willfully stupid. I get you didn't understand why the computer broke, you're not a computer person, it's ok. Here's why it broke, here's how to prevent it in the future, so you don't do it again. What do you mean it broke again?
  18. And just one more thing , will a RTX 2080 msi gaming x trio 8 gb will be alright ? Instead of the Ti ? Just asking because i will have enough to get keyboard mouse monitor etc :)) Thanks for the help anyway bro !
  19. woah there partner, i think 5 tabs is a little ambitious already
  20. No no no. my build calls for only black with a touch of white and orange. Im already mad I had to put in a red WiFi card till I can trade cards with my gf for my old back one.
  21. If you only have $100, get a used i7-4790 If you have $300, get a ryzen 5.
  22. Is the metal pitted where you scraped some off? Use something like a wooden popsicle stick to carefully scrape off a larger area to see.
