  1. Me to me: I really need to find a decent 75mm blower fan to shove into my PC to get hot air out of it since the one I have is obnoxious as hell

     

    Me on eBay 5 minutes later: All of these give me terminal AIDS.

      The most obvious answer would be that I have a small case, since apparently looking for a specific type of rather small fan wasn't a good enough hint.

      ever tried buying something "NEW" like factory sealed & has a tamper proof sealed label & stuffs?

  2. Thanks to the MCC-coming-to-PC-with-Reach my monitor is now covered in some weird viscous white liquid.

      Not a fan of Carey. He's utterly boring and I never felt like he is all that knowledgeable. He acts like a know it all when in fact he has been wrong about plenty of things in the past. We also have a case in point since he doesn't understand how the YouTube algorithm works.

      @Psybadek If I'm not mistaken, at some point he got super butthurt over how to apply thermal paste and said something to the tune of "people that don't do it the same way as me are morons." And we can't also forget the fact that he's shown his clear disdain for tech channels with higher sub counts than him in the past.

  7. I love when people list hardware as "fully working" and then you get it and it artifacts like a bitch. Is it really that damn hard to plug it in for like 2 minutes to make sure?

      @flibberdipper in that case i can understand someone not having an AGP machine laying around to test it with. 

       

      but i agree they should have listed it as untested.

      Once my dad bought a screen protector from ebay then received it in tiny little shards.

       

      Disclaimer: Ebay isn't bad, and if you know where to look, there are good parts with good prices.

       

      A "GTX 970" I got for $40 was a 550 Ti in disguise with no overclocking headroom, a terrible heatsink, noisy fan, and holes for, but no VRM heatsink.

      I mean this is just common sense, so...

       

      Either way, somehow AGP cards have dried up even more since then so if mom gets money back from it (which she should since eBay is pretty good about siding with the buyer) it'll just go to a new phone.

  8. So my 7950 that died like a year and a half ago came halfway back to life the other night... Flashed a stock vbios on it today (since the one it had was a solid 40 iterations deep of the original) and it seems to be perfectly fine...

    This damn thing never dies I swear.

      I dropped my phone in the water-filled gutter (a Huawei M8 Nein) and it works fine. I have no idea how it survived, it was completely immersed.

       

      Also my Ryzen 5 2600 is the single fastest 2600 that's been benchmarked on UserBenchmark.

      water doesn't necessarily kill electronics, that's why I hand-wash motherboards in the sink

  9. Eh, it's been running with about 9 gigs of dead space for the past 4-6K hours. It'll be fine.

      It's just a scratch disk. If it ever kicks the bucket while "in use" it's genuinely not a problem. Well, it'll be a problem for my other drives since they'll get stuck with a ton of shit from the scratch-drive-turned-dumping-ground.

  10. Old hardware will be the death of me. Lost an auction for an X1650 Pro 512MB and I just spent an hour looking at old AGP cards trying to find one that doesn't suck vomit... Really don't wanna get a 9700 Pro 128MB since it's not a huge upgrade from the 9600 Pro 128 my XP rig has now but... Man does this card suck and having dented caps sketches me out even though they work fine.

    2. flibberdipper

      flibberdipper

      I've got a 9700 Pro 128MB and a 3650 lined up, just depends how much mom and stepdad feel like spending. Obviously I'd rather have the 3650 since it's a pretty rare card to begin with, but for 20 bucks more you get a HELL of a lot more performance.

      Get the 9700K, you can overclock it! xD

      @WhisperingKnickers it really is, honestly. I guess some people are just too tempted by them swaggy noodle arms.

  16. Gotta say I'm pretty impressed with thermals on MSI's low-pro 1050ti. Even though it has to deal with the air that both it and my 3770 vomit out, it still hasn't hit 75C for more than a split second with a +200 offset.

     

    Still think the fan RPM below like 50C should be considerably lower. 28C idle temps are great but a little silly if I don't have my headphones on.

      Wait, there's a hard limit on the  phan speeb? Is it software related or is it hard-programmed into the card's BOIS BIOS?

    3. flibberdipper

      flibberdipper

      It's BIOS limited and I can't be bothered to attempt fucking with it.

    4. Schnoz

      Wow. My 1060 consumes like 5 watts at idle. Even a chipset heatsink would be enough at that power level.

      All I have to do is delete my 2.4 TB  (not really) of "study material".

       

      Both cuz I'm Asian and cuz it's a good place to hide things.

  19. Christ this went up in price since the last time I looked. Back then you could get a 4GB kit with heatspreaders for right around this much... And the whole "only having 512MB" thing is getting really old already on the ol' XP rig.

      Your PC133 based system can handle the HD DIMMs? Is that $32 for 4 of them? I think that is pretty reasonable.

    2. flibberdipper

      flibberdipper

      Yep, has a HD one in it right now and it's fine with it. And yeah considering how niche it is and the fact that they're supposedly like-new it's not bad, just not as good as it used to be. :P

      @Tech_Dreamer Literally just got it from a dank dude on here since he didn't need it. Also not necessarily, this card is from when Novideo were still doing the last final tweaks to the 480 before launch (made obvious by my cards lower clocks and voltage).

All I wanna do is tide myself over until Christmas with my GTX 480 (mom dropped the ball on 1050ti for birthday), but the damned B75 board I have to use my 3570K with is garbage and crashes all the time. Friends wanted to get me into Overwatch Competitive since I'm a high enough level but I don't want to be that guy

      Hey at least your GTX 480 has around the same Passmark score as a regular 1050.

    3. flibberdipper

      flibberdipper

      I don't know how that translates to gayming, but if that's the case there's a massive fucking leap between the 1050 and the Ti, seeing as the 1050Ti trades blows with a 7950 which from experience destroys my 480, even when overclocked to reference specs.

       

      Makes me glad that if mom ever does pull through on what will technically be last years Christmas that it's for the Ti.

    4. Schnoz

      Good luck on getting your 1050 Ti!

      Takes like 30 seconds of googling to find an installer for it so it's not hard

  24. Vista was shortchanged by retards expecting it to run on old hardware, and it died prematurely because of that. Nothing can change my mind. Also, 4K.

      I never had a problem with Vista. I had a gaming laptop that came with Vista x64 SP1 and it ran just as it should. But man, Vista on underpowered hardware was a very unpleasant experience.

    3. flibberdipper

      flibberdipper

      I ran SP2 on my Eee PC 1005HA and aside from the hardware being ass, it was great. Honestly whenever I manage to get a new laptop, I'm totally throwing Vista on my Latitude E4310 just because aesthetic (even though some of that aesthetic will be lost upgrading from glossy IE7 to bleh IE9).
