  1. There's a California Consumer Privacy Act that grants consumers the access to, deletion of, and sharing of personal information that is collected by businesses. Of course, due to Luke's non-resident (or citizen) status, I don't know how this would work out for him. All businesses that operate within California more or less must comply however. Last I checked, Blizzard is headquartered in Irvine, California not to mention the millions of customers they have here. Whether or not they even need to share the reason for the ban as a part of this act is another matter entirely. I highly doubt this would be the avenue to get that information.
  2. Relatively lower risk option would be to try a power play table registry mod. You should be able to crank that Red Devil up to 1900MHz on core with either option. At the very least, you have a dual BIOS switch, so if you lose power during the flash or screw it up otherwise, you have a safety net to fall back on.
  3. Did a couple upgrades since this was posted. Had a RX 5700 XT (reference) for about a month before I put that into my wife's rig, then upgraded to a Zotac RTX 2070 Super Twin Fan, then cooled it with a Kraken G12 and Corsair H50 that I had lying around. Also swapped out the G.Skill DDR4-3200 CL16 for Patriot Viper DDR4-3600 CL17 memory, and gave my G.Skill kit to my dad for his Ryzen 3700X build. This photo is a little outdated, there's a 120mm Phanteks fan attached to the 120mm radiator, and I move the radiator a bit to ease the bends in my tubing. It's not a cool and quiet little machine:
  4. It wont create issues. No way that flashlight's magnet is anywhere near powerful enough to disrupt a platter harddrive you have, if you have any. Been using a magnetic antennae mount for my wireless AC NIC for years:
  5. Absolutely, and it performs better than the 2700X in gaming: https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_ryzen_5_3600_review,24.html
  6. Not streaming or editing? I'd go with the Ryzen 5 3600 instead.
  7. Socks + sandals + orange screwdriver. Just needs some earings and to drop that motherboard, and the look is complete!
  8. He would also have to switch to a Ryzen APU (e.g. 3400G) if he drops the videocard, since the Ryzen 5 3600 does not have integrated graphics. Will probably take a hit when it comes to opening and resizing RAW files.
  9. I bought Witcher 1 and 2 at about the same time, and vowed not to buy 3 until I finished the other two. After restarting at least 3-4 times and wasting 12 hours in Witcher 1, I decided that the game is just too damned boring to continue. Watched a few synopsis videos on it, then moved onto Witcher 2. I'd recommend you do the same, Witcher 2 is simply a better focused, polished, and rewarding experience overall.
  10. Good, more time to get through my backlog. NGL, probably not going to finish a single game in my backlog before September anyway.
  11. Wider nozzle, now I can pump drugs into my veins faster than ever! Thanks Cooler Master!
  12. I'm a sucker for its simple look. It came bundled with my 3700X and it felt like a crime to not use it or - even worse - sell it.
  13. I'd go with a 5700 non-XT and flash it or power play registry mod it for basically 5700 XT performance. Even if you don't flash it, very difficult to beat its bang for buck.
  14. I'd go with the 1440P display for a 2060S. You can always turn a few settings down - like you said - to improve performance, but on a 1080P display you can never achieve the same fidelity. Sure, you can DSR to 1440P, but it's not the same sharpness as 1440P natively on a 1440P display.
  15. Hello fellow Californian. I see RX 5700 (non-XT) regularly drop into $279-289 territory. Will run 1440P beautifully right out of the box, but if you're feeling a bit adventerous you're a BIOS flash away from almost 5700 XT performance (or bricking your 5700 if you're clumsy).
