  1. I didn't read all the posts, but kudos to anyone who mentioned SOLAR MF POWER. Seriously, it should consist of like half of all our energy. And I'm not talking about solar roads.... That's just a gimmick.
  2. Someone used the "L" word Will there be a Linux release for Star Citizen?
  3. Molex would hands down be the worst connector for me if it was something external that one had to disconnect and reconnect often. HDMI is so ubiquitous that the frustration adds up. I might touch a molex connector once a year. HDMI is a daily battle.
  4. H D M I that's right, I said it.
  5. Earl Grey
  6. My mind can't tell if that's legit or not. Neither case would surprise me.
  7. This is why. "Everybody wants to be a critic. But nobody wants to be a critic." OP straight up accuses them of foul play, which is something not everyone can stomach. The testing methodology that MANY youtube reviewers did for Ryzen could be improved. However, many of us understand that several factors come into play that limit the "awesomeness" of the benchmarks performed. First and foremost, there was a very real time crunch for a lot of these reviewers. I think people go into a review looking for a specific result, and want to confirm that the reviewer came to the same conclusion. For the reviewer, that's not what it's about. 1440p and 4k are very real. I don't begrudge them at all for doing benchmarks at those resolutions. If I had to work quick to get out a review on time with the 50 other people/sites reviewing the Sku, I'd definitely prioritize higher resolution gaming.
  8. I'm thinking about this from an economic standpoint. If Ryzen is in high demand and AMD can't keep chips on the market, prices might shoot up to a point where the savings might dwindle. I didn't pre-order, but there may be a scenario where pre-ordering might end up being the best move one could have made with this release.
  9. Somebody tell me.... should I be excited about this? I see a lot more black than red here. What's the price difference of these two CPUs that were benchmarked?
  10. Worth
  11. Not really. The threat of spillage isn't just up to the owner not drinking something near the PC. Sprinkler systems, open windows, and leaking pipes can all cause water to enter the system through the top vents of a PC.
  12. If you google "black styrofoam" you will find an acceptable solution.
  13. This is exactly why I opted for a fractal design case with the "modu-vents" The cooling potential by having an open top is far outweighed by the risk of spillage for me. What kind of case do you have?
  14. I would start small. Hiking would be a long day, plus the drive. Start with something close by that doesn't require a huge time investment. Also something that let's either one of you bail if things go south. Bowling is one idea.
  15. It would make installation considerably more annoying.
