    What is this?

    You could get a molex to dual molex cable. Sometimes 6 pin to dual molex. Plenty of variety out there.

    Why all the storage?

    A logo would be a little different as it can be an iconic figure, unlike a video. If it were to be my current one, then I would most likely care, but say an old one I hadn't been using for a while and probably wouldn't go back to, probably not.

    Why all the storage?

    Photos are something you can skim through very easy, 1000's of hours of videos on products that eventually people will hardly remember?

    Why all the storage?

    Well even when they started Vessel, they didn't upload any old videos, just new ones. If youtube were to fail, a lot of videos wouldn't even really be relevant, who would watch benchmarks on a GTX 680? I can understand working hard on videos and them having some sentimental value, but most of them you'd be very rarely likely to go back and watch. I could see this being one, I don't fully understand most copyright laws, but it seems too large of a hassle if someone copyrighted a video of mine from say 8 years ago on a video I might hardly even remember.

    Why all the storage?

    Just got done watching the new $5,500 tape drive video and it hit me. Why does Linus (and other YouTubers) want to store every video they've ever made? I can understand keeping them for maybe a few years or so, but why all of it and spend the cost of the storage servers? To me, it feels like its a tad bit on the hoarding side, but maybe there something I'm not understanding here. Even if I had a large collection of videos I've made and put on Youtube, I personally couldn't see keeping every single one of them stored.

    The RAVE PC Build Log

    This could use more clap on.
  7. Personally, I would rather use edge over chrome. I've never been a huge fan of chrome. I used to like it back when it was first made but I long since haven't cared for it. I know a lot of people complain of IE being bad with popups or it's slower, but I've never had this issue with IE unless I left it alone for years and was careless enough to fall for extension downloads or bloatware. I can see why MS would want to show more support for their browser, I mean it's on their OS and they manage it to their likings. Chrome for me uses too much memory for not a good enough reason "Oh we're the fastest browser, but at the cost of your other programs if you don't run a high-end PC/laptop". I'm not even a huge extension user, just adblocks and sometimes a minor macro tool for more keyboard shortcuts. I still use firefox to this day, but if it was between chrome and edge, I'd rather use edge.

    Secuirty Thread

    So lately I've been studying up for school, finally decided to go to school to become an IT security specialist. I noticed LTT doesn't have any sort of security type of forums/threads. I know they get tossed in the general topics like the incident with meltdown and spectre. Any chance of adding a new spot for security topics?

    intel optane issues

    Yeah, you need windows for it to run. I've built a few rigs for friends with optane so far and it runs well. Definitely worth the investment for cheaper pcs with a speed boost until ssd costs come down. As porina said, most time you can try windows upgrade feature.

    Lan parties still a thing in 2018?

    Hey guys, I used to love going to LAN parties back when I was younger and they were more common to find. Started seeing new small cases come up at CES and tech reviewers bringing up that certain things may be great for LAN parties. So I was curious, are they still relevant anymore? I haven't heard of any in my local area go around for quite some time. Same with some of my friends cross country. Figured I would ask here and see what you guys think. Do you think they're dying off in the modern day? Do you still go to LAN parties or know anyone who still goes to them?

    Invisible drive device?

    Well checking now, my original image post, my optical drive wasn't listed, but now it is. Both the random drive and my optical drive take-up bus1, but Samsung still shows this 3rd drive being there, and it normally doesn't pick up my optical drive as an option, unless I just need to reset windows.

    Invisible drive device?

    Nope, no other device, except an optical drive.

    Invisible drive device?

    So I went to boot up my PC this morning and I couldn't boot up past the rog UEFI menu. I tried several times and couldn't get into even the bios. Well, I saw I was getting an A2 postcode, which is IDE Detect code. I only use 2 drives, an 850 pro and a 950 pro. Well, I saw some Asus forums saying it was a bad OC error menu. So I went in and changed some numbers on my OC and reset them, didn't save any settings, then I was able to boot into windows. So now that I'm in, I checked a few things and somehow I have an extra drive? Here's Samsung magician showing and device manager, but nothing in windows? https://imgur.com/a/kuyr3 Anyone got any idea what this drive is? I'm currently running a pc scan in case it's a virus. Edit: Refreshed hardware changes and the drive went away, also still running scanner.

    Cooler twists when screwed on cpu?

    Okay, just wanted to make sure. Been ages since I've done an air cooled tower and freaked out when I saw it slightly twisted when I first mounted it.

    Cooler twists when screwed on cpu?

    Okay, so I got my cryorig h7 tower. I got it mounted and screwed in, but it's able to twist a little. Is this normal? Haven't booted up the pc yet, scared it may not be secured all the way.
