  1. White Mini Server Rack Recommendation?

    you could always paint a black rack white. if the white rack is a lot more.
  2. Under $1000

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel - Core i3-8300 3.7GHz Quad-Core Processor ($141.71 @ B&H) Motherboard: ASRock - H310M-HDV/M.2 Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($59.89 @ SuperBiiz) Memory: *Team - Elite Plus 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($139.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Western Digital - Black PCIe 256GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($89.89 @ OutletPC) Storage: Toshiba - P300 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($56.99 @ Amazon) Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1070 8GB SC2 Gaming iCX Video Card ($409.89 @ OutletPC) Case: Corsair - Carbide Series 88R MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($49.89 @ OutletPC) Power Supply: SeaSonic - FOCUS Gold 450W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($53.99 @ SuperBiiz) Total: $1002.24 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available *Lowest price parts chosen from parametric criteria Generated by PCPartPicker 2018-07-22 03:14 EDT-0400 So while I would normally recommend an i5 at this budget the 1070 is so much faster than a 1060 or rx 580 that its worth it. You could also just cut out the HDD to gain back the money needed for it.
  3. XFX R9 390 Issues

    all the makers aren't bad, I've ran ASUS, PNY, XFX, and some old AMD only brands. I ran my asus 970 for almost 3 years balls to the walls and it was fine. The PNY is a 9800GTX+ the AMD brand I can't remember is on a hd 5770 both those have been running for half a decade or more. Just look and see if lots of people are having issues with that model before you buy.
  4. Your favorite tech youtubers?

    So I see no one has brought up Level1 techs I watch most of LTTs, L1Techs, random gaming in HD some of Gamers nexus, jay, kyle, Paul.
  5. 2018 workstation/gaming build

    at that point 11 series may about to come out. also use PCpartpicker makes life so much easier.
  6. Would you buy TVs made by Apple?

    that's the middle one its just written weird
  7. unless the card your buying is binned by the maker it isn't likely. More power can help with better overclocks but it it isn't 100% that it will.
  8. Would you buy TVs made by Apple?

    Nope, unless apple somehow makes a TV for as much as everyone else I still won't just to spite them, I haven't liked their direction sense 2012 or so. The last time they made some great machines.
  9. Would be cool to see some videos playing with 10g fiber.

    used 10 and 40gb nics on ebay go for less. and there is a few cheap rj45 10gb single nic cards for under 100$
  10. Ryzen Stock Cooler

    zip ties are a thing.
  11. What's your thoughts on Nuclear Power?

    So you want your house to be ok that's fine.
  12. What's your thoughts on Nuclear Power?

    So this is the case for current water cooled reactors. There was a test ran in the early 1980s of a reactor that used a mixture of molten sodium and a metal that would auto shutdown even if no one was there and there was no power based on it expanding and then nuclear fission stopping. It had the coolant valves closed which in a normal water reactor would have caused an explosion, the biggest issue with it was is that it happened about a month before Chenobyl It was ran for over 30 years as a test reactor. In some ways it is because there are still some of the reactors from Chernobyl's generation that are still running. that were run so poorly for so many years One of the issues I see is that we have to many old reactors. Its fine to operate them for 60-70 years but there reaches a point when gen 1 and gen 2 reactors need to be rebuilt to gen 3.
  13. I've always been ok with nuclear power but my Parents have always be someone dismayed by it. My mom's like all this toxic waste; its not good. So i'm just going to say a few interesting thoughts. 1. we have made less than a football field cubed of it over the 75 years by thousands of bombs and a few hundred reactors. 2. Most of the accidents have happened with early or poorly kept up and upgraded reactors. 3. Things like wind and solar (Please stop with panels lets get back to mirrors with oil or molten salt there so much better) have the issues of not lasting 24/7 So with the possibility of Melton salt or Liquid Metal mixtures cooling or better designed water reactors do you all thing nuclear power will come back?
  14. Convex monitors!

    nope just doing things like : ) without a space will auto convert. If you used them on your phone they are showing up on the website.
  15. HP's "Landfiller" Desktop PC

    hey that big case is way easier to make a build in for HP. While dell may ship enough volume to make small cases I don't know if HP does.
