  1. I need a blower style GPU. I wish RX 5700s weren’t so expensive. Vega 56 is affordable but the performance improvement isn’t that great coming from an RX 580. 

    I need a blower cooler because my modded PowerMac G5 case cannot exhaust the hot air from my 580. The hot air just stays in the top compartment and gets recirculated. A blower card would exhaust all the hot air directly out the rear and would probably lower my average temps as a result.

      Vega 64 or Vega Frontier Edition are out of the question? Prices have come down quite a bit last I checked (especially the latter)

    2. DrMacintosh


      Can’t really find any Vega 64s. Also those run incredibly hot with a blower cooler

    3. SenKa


      Vega FE's?

  2. I've finally setup my PC to act as a Home File Server. I used the network folder sharing features of Windows 10 and the SMB File sharing support of iOS and macOS so I can stream content. 


    I now have access to all my videos (Movies, Anime, and XXX) from any of my personal devices on my local network.  

    1. BuckGup


      So anyone on your network can now browse into your Anime XXX videos

    2. DrMacintosh


      Technically, yes. But nobody else on my network even knows how to setup file sharing. And actually to remote in from a non Windows device (nobody else has a PC that they use for anything other than paying bills) you need to enter my PCs login details. 

  3. Sapphire arguably makes the best AMD cards. I would stick with the Nitro+
  4. In Windows 10 go to settings > update & security > backup From there you can select what drive to use for backup and select which folders you want to backup. It's not fancy like Time Machine on macOS, but it's functional.
  5. ideally you wouldn't have to worry about that. Your battery would last all day and could charge to 100% while you shower.
  6. ngl, outside of restoring, making local backups, and syncing over a wire (instead of WiFi).....there is very little reason to have a cable or port. Assuming of course a high speed wireless charger is included in the box.
  7. It can be done, just nothing on the end user side. iOS can’t set the name or set the icon of a webapp on the home screen.
  8. Probably forum side. iOS grabs favicons normally.
  9. Yes it would be nice, but you cant.
  10. Would you suggest an iphone 8 as a test phone? I am really happy with the s9 plus, sold my iphone X because someone bought it for 700$( bought it used for 500 so made 200$ profit, this is all CAD) Its nice to have an iphone to test out IOS, so what do you think? 7 plus is a bit too old, what would you say is a fair price for a 8? Also love the classic design, notch never grew on me. 

    1. DrMacintosh


      Below $330 depending on capacity and if it's a Plus model or not. 7 Plus is fine since it still gets 3GB of RAM. The A10 Fusion is still overkill for iOS. 

  11. ngl, probably the phone most people should be buying in 2019. It's affordable for an iPhone (being $50 less than the XR was with much more to offer) and has stellar battery life, a fantastic camera system, along with the best SoC available in any phone.
  12. Hmm, the square look seems to have fallen out of fashion with modern phone makers. Most everyone is rounded. The only somewhat decent phone with that that I am aware of is the Razer Phone (which you already mentioned).
  13. That doesn't mean carriers have any interest in serving more data though. Also most phones can't playback VP9 and can only stream 1080p h.264/5
