    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Soag in What's the appeal of non-competitive games?   
    What kind of a question is this? Its like asking - Why would you read a book? Or why would you watch a movie? Or why would you go on a vocation to Italy to take a few pictures if you can use Google Maps.
     
    Or better - Why would I sweat trying to learn how to play a competitive game if I can just watch E-sports stream of top players duking it out?

    PopsicleHustler reacted to Syn. in Building my first PC, need suggestions!   
    If you're going to spend that much money on a board whether it be X470 or X570, you better make use of it and put in a powerful CPU, you could instead save money and buy a 100$ B450 Board and get yourself a 2700X and you'd still be able to upgrade your CPU later on though you won't get PCIe 4.0 which I personally think is not a big deal, the only GPU to date that is able to begin saturating PCIe 3.0 is the RTX 2080 Ti, that's a lot of performance to be able to upgrade to.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Husky in Problem booting with new cpu   
    You need up to date Bios that supports Zen 2 CPU. If your local tech store is capable of updating it, then go ahead and ask them.

    PopsicleHustler reacted to Syn. in RAM capped at 1600mhz.   
    CPUZ shows the real clock, and since DDR means Double Data Rate, 1600 * 2 = 3200mhz.
     
    Don't know how that's possible since you've set it to 3000mhz.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from geo3 in how much performance gain will i *actually* see   
    You really need fast RAM for Ryzen, especially Zen 2. Having it at stock 2133Mhz gives you a significant performance decrease.
  12. Agree
    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Mateyyy in 12 pin eps / 8 pin eps on z390 with i7-9700k oc   
    You don't have to connect extra 4pin. Standard 8 pin EPS can deliver over 300W which is enough even for super OCd 9900k

    Ryzen doesn't support quad channel memory.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Mateyyy in Planning my first PC build   
    Thats one weird ass build.
     
    Why not go with B450 board+Ryzen 3600? It will save you a ton of money.
     
    Why the overpriced RAM? You have low budget PSU in a high end system with fancy RGB RAM? Get normal Corsair Vengeance 2x8 3200Mhz.
     
    Same for those fans. If you want high end fans, get Silent Wings. Again, you will save a ton of money and get better performance.
     
    And finally, get decent high end PSU. It will be powering a high end PC, you want to make sure it won't blow up.

    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Mateyyy in Ryzen 5 3600 or Ryzen 5 3500x   
    If you're playing at 1080p 60Hz, you could go for used 2600 instead with some nice B450 board.
  22. Agree
    PopsicleHustler got a reaction from Mateyyy in My 5v voltage rail is showing red in bios is it safe?   
    That is very low for a 5v rail. Either sensor is bad, or PSU is dying.

    PopsicleHustler reacted to Sammael in Ideas to cheer Linus up.   
    So I'm watching this Linus livestream and it's clear that he's been having some issues with stress and overwork and depression and a crisis of meaning in the face of bigger issues of life and death and worth.
     
    It's up to us to brainstorm ways to cheer him up.  
     
    Linus needs a break, he and his wife clearly want more time to live life outside work, that can be done easily.  The staff has grown and can accommodate more people picking up the slack. Linus needs to try shrooms. Repeat bullet point 2, with a guide. On the talk of consumerism and a sense of... frivolity to Linus entire work, I'm reminded of the words of the great Jean Baptiste Emmanual ZORG !!!!!!!!  
    ... okay, maybe that was a bad example, but the point still stands, consumerism is an engine of modern civilization.  And until we are post scarcity, it will probably be with us. Linus mentioned not wanting to buy newer cars over a sense of waste.  But we live in a world of abundance.  At least on time scales we ought to care about.  In the long run, we are all dead, that is true, the universe will eventually endure a heat death, and long before that the oceans of earth will boil away within a billion years as the sun expands.  If our species has not found a way to expand out by then, it will be over.
     
    But we essentially live in a universe of plentiful bounty.  We have free energy, flowing in from the sun to the earth, and that energy allows us to do work and transform this world into a paradise.  We are learning more all the time.  From cleaning up ocean plastic
     
    to nuclear reactors that can use current waste as fuel. 
     
    @Linus staff, you must, feed him shrooms.  Find a way.

    I beg to differ. There are manufacturers that offer very powerful RGB control software.

    People like RGB for flexibility. There is a metric f*ck ton of interesting and creative things you can do with RGB lighting.
