  1. AMD for a NAS?

    It'll be good for two-three concurrent users.
  2. FCC orders net neutrality repeal

    Because a computer is necessary, and nearly essential, to today's marketplace, employment opportunities, and education. There's also very little reason for throttling being a "necessary evil" of wireless and wired communications since it isn't a "finite" resource that requires an electron truck to drop off electrons into an underground receptacle like a gas station requires. Collusion is a very real problem in the US for ISPs, but more so the price-matching practices that most dole out. "Yea, Guy A has TV+Phone+Internet for $100 a month, but we'll give the same to you for $60* a month." *Monthly bill will then be $160 a month after the initial promotional period of 12 months.
  3. You have hot components tethered to the board... Then there are the VRMs and chips on the board.
  4. intel i77k or rysen 180x

    I would look at the CFL CPUs first, i.e. 8600K or 8700K. Alternatively, the B- and H-chipset boards should be out in April.
  5. Will a R5 1600x bottleneck a 1080ti?

    At 4K, your GPU will be struggling with Ultra. Lower the video settings to high or medium for the toughest games and you should be able to get the most out of your GPU and CPU.
  6. I've been having issues with POST taking upwards of a minute to complete lately. I've done everything from removing all components, using only one stick of RAM, changing the P2 down to a Capstone-M, and even going back to [SHIVERS] SATA boot drive.


    Don't ask me how, but replacing my UPS with a regular power strip brought it down to a five-eight second POST. 


     I don't have any words to say about this, so here's a photo off of Bing.

  7. 4k/1440p/Ultrawide

    LG gets my vote since I've had nothing but good experience with them on nearly 40 or so monitors, but AOC hasn't been tried much so I can't comment on them.
  8. 4k/1440p/Ultrawide

    Ultrawide gets my vote.
  9. What do you guys think about NIOH?

    It's a very good game. I enjoyed my play-through of the game (~130 hours) though I didn't find it as difficult as Dark Souls 1 or 3. Pretty much sums up the plot. /s
  10. FCC orders net neutrality repeal

    NZ and Australia have so many things that can kill ISPs decided to sit themselves out. @leadeater @mr moose In my area of Florida, I have two choices: Spectrum (currently providing) and Frontier. Frontier has quite a few brownouts and Spectrum raises their prices every month (currently 174/month for 100/10).
  11. Hmm... Haven't we had an issue like this before? [THINKS BACK TO US HISTORY] How long until we dump coffee GameStop into the sea again?
  12. https://www.wikihow.com/Clean-Rubber Just grab whatever panels you're okay with testing and try using soapy wooder.
  13. image.png.1bb85eb88fa5d5530beb9380b2d09df9.pngLook at that @$$hole! He's taunting me during service practice. Piece of crap thinks I won't murder him...


    Well, I won't. Not because I don't want to, but because I can't

      discount hitman then:P

  14. I still nominate EA's Battlefront II for being worse than this. Seriously, did anyone buy the game just to play as a Storm Trooper for 100 hours before getting a hero? I feel like reviewers are embracing their inner "instant gratification" engine (known by the developers as the Pussy-ass Bitch 2.0.18). Games, MUCH shorter games, used to require 100s of hours of game-time just leveling up before being able to progress, i.e. Final Fantasy 3 or Dragon Quest, while today's games can be walked through like nothing, i.e. Fallout 3 on "hard".
  15. I have as well, but I would love for Game Freak to give me a damn 2nd slot for $5 instead of having to buy a 2nd cartridge (I end up buying all three or two versions). Same with some of the Dragon Quest games.
