  1. Long duration action cameras

    why not? my hero 3 will record 12 hours of 960p30 and 9 1/2 hours of 1080p30 with a 64GB SDxc. Contrast that with the Hero 6 where it will record 30 fps video at 33Mbps regardless of resolution. It only doubles to 66Mbps in 4k and you can't change the bitrate. That's why i'm looking for a cheaper camera that doesn't have such a high (seemingly static) bitrate so it can shove more onto an SD card. I'm not even sure something like that exists. All else fails, i can just use my H3.
  2. There's no reason for them to be that hot when the system is idle. I'll bet that's misreporting temps from likely missing Thermo-sensors.
  3. Using an AIO on a Vega 64

    Anandtech reported nearly 460w in their aug 2017 report: oh wait, i read that wrong. that's total system power. i perused a bit more, Tom's reports about 300 watts.
  4. Using an AIO on a Vega 64

    An OVER 400 watt part, with a 120mm AIO. Buddy, you're gonna boil water with that thing.

    He did.
  6. Long duration action cameras

    I'll be using a home-made 12vdc-5vdc down converter (basically a hacked USB car charger tied into the vehicle's fused 12v system), so no issues about longevity. My main concern was about recording time as I don't want to have to stop every few hours and change out SD cards and download video WHILE driving. I'd rather do that when we stop for the night along the trail. The Hero 3 (white) I have (according to GoPro) will record about 9 1/2 hours of 1080p30 video on a 64GB (max size). If i drop that to 960p30, it goes the distance of 12 hours. 128GB would be IDEAL, and unfortunately it doesn't seem the Hero 3 White supports larger than 64GB. so 9 1/2 hours @ 1080p30, or 12 hours at 960p30. What i was hoping for was suggestions for cameras that support 128GB+ SD/mSD with 12 hours minimum record time (dependant on bitrate) at 1080p (30 or 60, prefer 60, cuz ...reasons). Suggestions that have data backed up with them would be GREAT!
  7. NVME install

    your RAID on the SATA ports? Does using the M.2 connector disable one of the SATA ports? Your MB manual will tell you this.
  8. Long duration action cameras

    well i'd probably end up getting a new one, and I must be some kind of idiot, but i can't find the maximum SD card size on GoPro's website for the hero 6.
  9. I'm planning a trip to Moab, Utah next spring and i'd like to use an action camera that can record for a LOOOOONG time. Taking the White Rim Trail and a few other excursions and need something that will record 1080p for a long time (12 hour days) or store hundreds of thousands of 1080p-ish resolution photos for time lapse. I understand that this may require an external storage device. I don't want to have to babysit the camera too much. I want to be able to turn it on, power it externally, and let it roll. Looking for your suggestions.

    Okay, well, i second a new rifle stock. the hogue is to floppy. I'd get a new trigger installed too. i never liked the x-mark series. a bipod, some shooting bags and you should be alright. I can't see the crown of the barrel so you MIGHT want to get it looked at if it's a rounded profile. You want a dead flat target crown. fuck fuck fuck. so much typing GONE. If you need any pointers on reloading for long range accuracy and repeatability (anyone can sling enough lead down range and hit a target once in a while), i'd be more than happy to share what i've learned over the years. I donno about accomplished, but i'm deadly to about a mile.
  11. Rate my build

    Even then, used 10xx will be A LOT cheaper.
  12. Rate my build

    SLI is pretty dead these days.
  13. Linux Mint 19 update problems

    Did the MD5 hash match the download? nvmd, this is an external connection failure.

    Nothing wrong with two lug, so long as they are lapped together well. Take the bolt out, use some marking die on the back of the bolt lugs, and chamber a spent case (one that came from the rifle recently). extract, and inspect the bolt lugs. the wear on the lugs should be uniform. Are you shooting factory ammunition, or are you reloading?
  15. did my 8600k die? red light on mobo

    welp, you know where to go to have it tested... unless you have another board to test, that's your only solution.
