      PayPal Problem - Some payments not going through (now resolved, but read if you had problems earlier)   20 May 2017

      Over the weekend and at the start of the week, PayPal had an issue that resulted in people being billed but the transaction showing as failed on our end. If you have signed up for a new subscription, and the transaction is showing as pending on the forum, so you haven't gained floatplane access yet, and you have waited more than 10 minutes after purchasing it in PayPal, please go to https://linustechtips.com/main/failed_transaction_fix.php and follow the instructions. If you have any issues, please send me a PM (hover over my picture or username and click "message"), including the transaction ID, and I will try and sort it out for you. If you try to subscribe again now, it should work.

  1. Can you provide proof of this? I.e comparison of MBP vs MB and why it wouldn't fit?
  2. No no, I'm talking about MacBook. Most of it actually will in the refresh, the only unfiesable thing here is potentially the second USB port. The ram is being upgraded this refresh to 16GB, with a 1TB storage option and touch bar + butterfly switches; Not sure about webcam but that coupled with a better battery and another port would be amazing. For i7 I meant a dual core 10W.
  3. Ah, so you're back, just not full time I take it?
  4. Point being, you don't have to justify anything; we aren't accusing you nor care what happened due to having no context that being one side. I'll say this once and leave it at this. PCMR has a horrid system of moderating and the moment I got banned it made me somewhat happy to be able to realise how broken of a system I was being a part of.
  5. The mods on PCMR are... what's the word; Stuck up, egotistical and have no respect for the database itself. Rather they choose to maintain order within its hierarchy of mods whilst comparing who has the biggest EPen. I've had experiences myself, talked to all of the mods and the owner himself. It's funny because the moment you have a view that one of the mod's encountering you, doesn't agree with, you can expect a hell of a fun bureaucratical time. Trust me, it's not worth dealing with such a shit mod base. LinusTechTips mods do this much, much better, although there are also issues, we are still humans and make errors. The mods on LinusTechTips most of the time are very fair and well behaved with a good system in place whilst mods being committed members of the community which makes this place so great.
  6. This, in all honesty, is very interesting. I can see the reason behind Intel doing so, being the adoption of their technology (creating for a reliance) but then it leaves me wondering what they have prepared for the refresh being TB4.
  7. Personally, I will go for what I want from the MacBook as this is all I would buy in terms of form factor and usability. Core i7 16GB LPDDR4 2133MHz 2TB PCIe M.2 2 X USB-C (Potentially a USB-C TB3 for one of these connectors) 720p-1080p webcam Generation 2 butterfly switches Touch bar / Touch ID Slightly better battery.
  8. I think that, although Noble chairs still maintain the overall look of the DXR, the quality and overall materials are better. Both design and ergonomics whilst not screaming "gamer".

  10. TB3, USB-C, that's all that's missing for me.
  11. Aftermarket for the better cooling and overclocking headroom.
  12. THE ram is better. Watch Linus's video then. Ryzen needs ram speed for ocing due to infinite fabric. I'll link sources but you can see between 5-15fps difference from ram on ryzen atleast. The SSD has very good preformance it is well worth it especially with this budget. I said the HDD is subjective but quite frankly it had the best reputation for this particular model. $1000 budget. Not over, look at other posts in this thread. Although yes I sacrificed on the GPU but look at the "significant" bump in CPU. 2 more cores, 8 more threads. This is more well rounded and the power supply is better. so for $250 I got better storage, an SSD, a better PSU, better CPU and better ram with more of it.
  13. Better CPU comparatively to OPs first list. SSD, a good HDD decent size (subjective) better PSU, better ram. And I was doing this in a 1000 budget, a lot of others had done the same so I assumed we had moved budget - my bad if not. Further more the CPU won't get maxed out by the 1600 where as it will with the 1400. (If the 1400 is 4c4t I'm not sure )

  15. No. What I am saying is there is beyer value than just maxing CPU and GPU. Going with a R5 1600 6C12T 4GHz, RX 580 8GB 1420MHz, 16GB 3200Mhz, CoolerMaster 550VS Gold - to me this is much more balanced and offers better value and future upgrade ability with a four year platform. Could fit in a 250GB 960 EVO maybe a 2TB HDD. Overall becomes balanced and all round preformance is higher for day to day tasks. Keep in mind the R5 1400 could be maxed out due to the power of the 1070 creating a bottleneck. The extra cores and threads of the 1600 will Goan preformance as the cores are made use of through game development, which is beginning to happen. Edit: PSU's do matter.
