  1. Thanks Todd, keep up the balance.

    Just for the record since Handbrake really dropped the ball on the transcode, I'm a level 25 and was pitted against a level 45 mothman and level 50 scorchbeast.

      now there's a profile pic we all remember.

  2. Some game codes for anyone who wants 'em (I've already got them all). First come first serve obviously.

  3. Nice, the last patch Tuesday update managed to break My Summer Car and The Sims 4. They try to launch, get a white screen, and then die. ?

      I think they really emphasize the ass part of assurance.

      @flibberdipper You just ended the whole Microsoft QA department career.

  4. Reading someone's OP which is long and providing good advice: ?

     

    Complaining that it's TLTR and giving bad advice: ?

      You get a build setup with that 370 board? See you changed your name haha

      ripanotha2013og

      You bet, had it set up just a couple days after getting it and making sure everything tested out fine and at this point use it almost every day. Pics and future plans can be seen here: https://builds.gg/flibberdipper/zenith-dual-socket-pentium-3-xp-rig-18738

  6. shitty picture alert because of a big ol thunderstorm

     

    Stock fans were annoying so I made the XFX-board-MSI-cooler-three-time-death-champion 7950 in my file server single fan and quadruple slot. The ball is in EVGA's court now to one-up it.

      What do you mean by "three time death chanpion"?

    2. ripanotha2013og

      ripanotha2013og

      It's died three times. This time it seems to be living life well after a vanilla 7950 BIOS flash. Somehow ran ~10C cooler open-air (with the not-jank cooling) even though core voltage is higher and clocks are the same.

  7. I like how YT advertises 4K videos on an Xbox 360 where you can only play 720p.

      @Origami Cactus My take is that 1440p is 1080p, 1080p is like 648p, and then 1080p60 is a cool 288p.

      144p is like a blazing 36p20 on the Xbox.

      If anything else, it's nice that this one has smaller shit so it's not quite as noticeable. Not about to pay 15 bucks for another RMA given the track record so far of two-for-two though.

      Woulda had to pay for a whole new phone which wasn't happenin dawg

  10. Grandma's old HDD sure has a few hours on it. Sad part is that it's in better shape from a bad sector standpoint than a few of the other drives in my file server.

    Fun fact: The drive that's red had well under 1K hours on it before it started throwing bad sectors left and right, and yet it's still hanging in there with almost 16K hours.

      Thanks! And yep, these ol' lads always have a reserved spot for me (especially these newer "pointy" ones, would love to get one of the newer ones that's mostly blacked out).

      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.

  15. 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.

    3. ripanotha2013og

      ripanotha2013og

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

  16. 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.

      I took this gif of my RGB fan in my Corsair 380T. Seeing as it fits your name, you can use it. I wont be a butt and claim only I'm allowed to use it cause I made it :P

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

  21. 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. ripanotha2013og

      ripanotha2013og

      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.

  22. tfw you do some house cleaning and shit shuffling for about 45 minutes and get one drive from having just over 5 gigs of free space to just over 60 ?

      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.

  23. 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. ripanotha2013og

      ripanotha2013og

      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
