  1. Crazy laptop liquid cooling on the cheap.

    RIP your computer. It's only a matter of time. A better solution would be to return or sell that piece of fruit and get yourself a high-end prosumer/business grade Lenovo or Dell for half the price.
  2. Alex Jones on Floatplane?

    The volume of traffic would fall pretty dramatically, actually.
  3. A man walks into a Nissan dealership. He tells the salesman that he's looking at a Versa, but isn't sure whether to go with a new model or a certified pre-owned from the previous year. The salesman says, "I suggest a GT-R Nismo."
  4. In a world where CX/CXM units go on sale for $25 on a semi-regular basis, this is a terrible and unnecessarily risky idea.
  5. i3-6100?

    A Ryzen 3 1200 or Ryzen 5 1400 would make much more sense then. You can get a solid overclock on just the stock cooler, and you're getting four true cores as opposed to two. A B350 mobo can be found on the cheap, and you don't need spectacular VRMs for a 1200 or 1400. The AsRock Pro4 would be perfect. If you're definitely going Intel, an i5-6500 would be a much better purchase.
  6. Grab a refurb ThinkPad T430 off of eBay.
  7. I'm pleasantly surprised by how not-shit this looks.
  8. DH57JG not accepting keyboard input during post

    I'm to a point where I don't bother with ITX pre-LGA 1155. For whatever reason, the few ITX boards I've had for LGA 775, AM2 and LGA 1156 have all had problems. I don't know if it's age or poor build quality or what, but I just stick to mATX or bigger with older systems at this point. Much less frustration.
  9. DH57JG not accepting keyboard input during post

    Actually, yes it does, just not officially. Mine was running the latest BIOS with an X3440, and was just as wonky as it was with an i5-750
  10. Scrapyard Wars 7 Pt 1 - NO INTERNET

    I totally signed it up for 100 dating/escort/porn text services though.

    I had one of those for a while. Touchy as hell. I eventually just sold off the board because there were too many weird quirks. Have you checked the BIOS configuration jumper to make sure it's making clean contact? Also, this is going to sound ridiculous but I actually had to do it, if you have some way of connecting a USB to something other than the motherboard USB ports (i.e., a PCIe add-in card or spare front panel USB device with a port on it), it might actually work through there and not the back. Yes, that happened. Finally, of course, would be going into BIOS and manually changing the boot order. I ended up having to do that more than once because the POST behavior of my board was so, so weird.
  12. What PC is better

    Derp, forgot that the 8600K isn't hyperthreaded. There's a class 1 brain fart for you.
  13. What PC is better

    I'd go with the Intel version. Better motherboard (this is important), better cooling, processor is more or less the same in real-world tasks.
