    It could have been repaired, could have.
     
    Sell it to a third party repair or send it back to the factory and ask them to honor their warranty. Make sure you record and share their response, I'm dying to hear it.

    DragonTamer1 got a reaction from Hawick in GTA V: Real money for fake gambling   
    I stopped playing GTA because of all the flying bikes and sci-fi Saint's Row BS they had been adding that was ruining the "immersion" of being a criminal. I bought the game so I could steal cars (you can't even keep high end cars even though it's in the name of the game) robbing banks, making money from jobs and occasionally goofing off and running over your friends at 100 mph.
     
    I've never bought into their business model of you need to pay us money since I was generally disinterested in most of what they added to the game. Anything that they added that I thought was cool was locked behind a pay wall of needing to buy something else that I didn't want because it was not as cool (and absurdly expensive). I've never bought a shark card and as far as I'm concerned, they haven't done anything to deserve my money.
     
    I'm actually okay with casinos being in the game because it's not outlandish to have one in this type of game, I do however have an issue with the fact that real money can be added to play at these casinos. Real life casinos are regulated by law (at least the ones that I'm aware of) so that there are at least chances that you will win once in every so many games, and the chances are disclosed to you.

    Finally did my first "mod" to the car. Replaced the nasty headlights with new LED ones. Just wish I had gotten the tail lights and fog lights in this weekend to do those as well.
     
    Also rotated the tires, fronts are wearing a bit fast on the inside.

    DragonTamer1 got a reaction from iamdarkyoshi in Building a sleeper. Need help with airflow.   
    If you are building in that case you are going to want as much negative pressure as possible. 80mm fans get loud so see if you can find one on the quieter side. You can also use your power supply as an exhaust fan to help pull air through the system. Just don't get any fanless power supplies and make sure they aren't hybrid. I think that most hybrid PSUs only kick on under a certain load and not temp.

    DragonTamer1 got a reaction from Mattias Edeslatt in case orientation leads to drastic cpu temps change with tower air cooler   
    What?
     
    Heat rising is irrelevant in this situation because there is not a large amount of heat being generated and the IHS of a processor is so small that it quickly becomes saturated. If you are talking about the cooler, the heat pipes in the cooler would work to move the heat away regardless of angle.

    So from what I'm seeing, the only thing this card is good for is OEM upgrades that don't have PCIe cables on the power supply.

    DragonTamer1 got a reaction from EarthWormJM2 in Survey claims 86 percent of US teens plan to choose iPhone as next smartphone   
    Is it safe to assume that the survey may have been a bit skewed? It said an investment firm conducted the survey but I didn't see how it was distibuted.
     
    It's a little less impressive when you consider that earlier that year the same survey has 84% for apple which is a 2% growth of their surveyed market share.

    VLC support needed a third party plugin that no longer seems to be supported. I tried about a year ago with no luck.
     
    I don't watch Blu-ray disks much but when I do I use Leawo Blu-ray. Can be a bit clunky but it is free. I usually just rip the disk with MakeMKV.

    DragonTamer1 got a reaction from Tech_Dreamer in Borderlands 3 will be exclusively on the Epic store for the first 6 months   
    I originally thought that 2k games/Gearbox had a falling out with steam but I couldn't find any news article about it so I must be thinking of something else.
     
    You could say that it's greed motivating these decisions though I think in every case so far it has been the publisher not the actual developer that makes the decision. On the flip side they may not like that steam is taking 30% of their revenue for doing little to no work. 30% is actually a considerably large percentage of the profits being taken and I can't think of anywhere else that is taking such a large chunk either online or real world. As a perspective, most retail stores will take somewhere between 5-15% on the products they sell.

    DragonTamer1 got a reaction from Tech_Dreamer in Borderlands 3 will be exclusively on the Epic store for the first 6 months   
    The devs get a larger cut verses Steam. Steam takes 30% and Epic takes 12%. Steam will take less as your sales go up but there is not guarantee that your game will make those sales targets, and they are also fairly high sales targets to meet. The Epic exclusivity is either the devs thinking that if they only release on Epic they will make more profit verses steam. If the game was launched on both then I suspect that people who have both platforms would buy it from steam instead which would cut into their profit. I believe Epic also guarantees that a sales target will be met and the devs get reimbursed if that target is not met. I don't think they've had to use this yet as if they did they would hemorrhage money faster than a collapsing communist state and businesses are not in the business of loosing money.

    DragonTamer1 got a reaction from Gonzalo Noriega in XFX RX570 how to cool it with fans...   
    Your temps are really not that bad. I have my cards allowed to run up to 90 before throttling and they frequently sit around 80 while gaming (two decently overclocked 480s). If you want to find out how hot your card will get, you can take the temperature of the card under load at your existing ambient temp and add the difference between the current ambient temp and your max expected to the cards temp. Absolute temp is not indicative of most use cases. Using a temp over ambient (sometimes called Delta T over ambient) is more flexible for changes in ambient temp.
     
    If you are really concerned you can add another fan to your system, you would be better off setting your two rear most fans at the top to exhaust and putting the other fan at the bottom of the case blowing air out of the empty PCIe brackets (remove them for better airflow). This creates a low pressure area at the bottom of the case where the GPU is trying to breathe in air that allows for the cool air being brought in by the front fans to move into.

    DragonTamer1 got a reaction from ProfessionalOverclocker in Borderlands 3 will be exclusively on the Epic store for the first 6 months   
    I think the general idea here is to hurt 2k games with this tactic. Everyone seems eager to complain that EGS exclusives are hurting developers but I think this is a good example of people hurting developers because they've gotten emotional.
