  1. Do I Really Need a 1080 TI?

    ...2 1080 TIs in sli, because not overkill enough. Seriously, a 1070 Ti or 1080 is already pretty overkill for 1080p.
  2. Any Z77 Mobo users still out there? Slow ssd Win10

    I have a 2700K (4.9 GHz) and a ASUS Pro-V Z77 board. 980 Ti as well I'm still running Window 10 without issues here. No SSD slowdown. I have a 480 GB Sandisk Extreme 2 though. I want to upgrade to an 8700K, but screw the prices of RAM right now. lol
  3. Router with two WAN ports?

    Ah, I don't think Ubiquiti is popular there, that's why the high price. A controlled (managed) router is managed through a software controller / hardware controller. It's great for having a single program to manage a lot of devices (also for statistics), but it's not needed in your case. The TP Link should do it.
  4. Router with two WAN ports?

    The Edgerouter X is the cheapest one I can think of that can pull this off. Else, Edgerouter Lite, and Edgrouter 4 are also options. If you wanted a controlled router, the USG works just fine for this.
  5. Cheap sub-$50 Mic Round-up!

    This is a pretty nice round up. I was looking for a mic setup since my old webcam died. I'll probably aim for the $86 XLR setup.
  6. In my opinion, no. But I got my EVGA SC Black used for a good price and it lives in my server so noise isn't an issue. But yeah, just get whatever you prefer. I kind of lean EVGA myself now due to support, but the other vendors have great cards as well.
  7. Whats your favorite LTT video

    Mine would be the Red Dragon camera reaction videos to the price tag. The pure rage is quite fun to watch. haha. Aside from rage though, it would have to be 7 gamers 1 cpu, just because it was a very neat showcase of technology.
  8. Strix is cooler / quieter, but it's a 2.5 slot card so it had better be. The EVGA 1080 Ti is pretty good for being only two slots (Which I really like, I need my PCIe slots)
  9. 200 metre link between Workshop and House

    I'm also probably going to have to agree with buried fiber (or fiber in conduit underground) as a way to run this. Else, the airmax idea is cheaper and should work.
  10. What's the i9-7980XE's suffix "XE"

    "Xtra Expensive" But no really, I think it's extreme edition...but really Intel really needs to rework their SKU system...so confusing.
  11. Favorite kind of Cheese

    Brie is my favorite. I like the buttery taste of it. Mozzarella and provolone are my other runner ups.
  12. Are these legit Phanteks RGB LED Strips?

    Err, the SATA connector doesn't exist in the version I have (I'm guessing it's just an RGB controller?). It's meant to be plug and play in Phantek's RGB cases (In this case, my friend's build with a P400 Tempered glass edition). The case already had a phanteks RGB controller in the case and this plugs right into it. Else, the other way of powering it is a motherboard RGB header (My friend's PC is a Haswell system so RGB headers on motherboards weren't so popular yet)
  13. Are these legit Phanteks RGB LED Strips?

    I've bought the first one, I can confirm it's legit. It does come with the Phanteks to normal RGB 4-pin header. Second one might a some special combo from china? idk. I couldn't deal with waiting for it that long to ship from china.
  14. Cooling Alternative for a 980 ti?

    Have you already changed the thermal paste? Though my G1 Gaming did get fairly hot (80-83C) when overclocked to 1500 MHz. Before it used to run much hotter on the original thermal paste. There's a water block for this card, but otherwise you could attempt hybrid modding it with an AIO. 1080 Ti is a monster though. I have both the 980 Ti and 1080 Ti and without a doubt, the 1080 Ti runs cooler and is faster (I mostly render though). But I spent $300 more on the 1080 Ti so yeah...980 Ti used is still a great bang for the buck.
  15. Need help selecting Cisco (CCNA) certification to follow

    Yeah, preparing for it on my own. I pretty much would say the same as the above, you can pass these certifications without the equipment. I've read stories of some people straight up passing the CCNA R&S without ever touching equipment. I don't think employers really care how you got the CCNA. @Lurick Hmm, I guess I should get VIRL for when I get around to CCNP, but what do you need bare metal hosts for? (at least I'm too noob to figure out why)
