About Baymax

  • Title
  1. Actually credit cards are more secure than debit cards, in regards to consumer protection. You don’t always have the right to chargeback on a debit card. If you do, then sometimes it is restricted to a specified radius of miles. No company can profit from fraud. However, debit card terms are very specific. Amex you can file a dispute up to 6 months. Discover can can allow up to six months. Visa/MasterCard is 4 months. Your debit card 30-90 days. However, certain chargeback codes have different timeframes. Can you tell I work in the industry?

    PayPal Forcing Me To Enter SSN?

    You can thank your government for the Patriot Act - KYC. Financial institutions and payment processors are required to verify your identity. This is legit.
  3. I figured. I’m just being a spaz. It does look tight in there. I just needed some reassurance. It’s been purchased. Thanks.
  4. I was originally going to go with the MSI B450 Tomahawk; however, I like the RGB lighting on this better and the integrated WiFi. I have concerns my 2600 stock cooler won’t fit well on this board. Is anyone using the stock 2600 on this board? https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16813144188?Keyword=Pro carbon b450 Additionally, I messed up and my ram, Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO CMW16GX4M2C3000C15, isn’t on the QVL. I think I’ll be fine. Anyone using this on the Pro Carbon?
  5. Nearly all banks have an overdraft matrix applied to your account. They want you to overdraft. Some allow you to set your card to decline - you have to opt in. Once you go negative, every transaction will cost you an additional ~$35. Ever enjoy a $37 soda? I did when I was a teen. Lesson learned. If you ever need to overdraft your bank account, say you’ve fallen on hard times; then, you withdraw from an ATM the entire amount you need to get by. That way you minimize your needs to one transaction and one overdraft fee.

    Opinion on mobos with built-in wfi?

    I vote a triband (mesh) extender with an Ethernet port and LAN that way. You may need 1-2 extenders.

    Got IP banned from PC Part Picker?

    You’re IP banned, Mobile ID banned, Cookie Banned, ect... There are so many ways to links accounts. Your best bet would be Tails OS. It would guarantee you don’t get linked. That would be a hassle for just wanting a PC Part Picker account.

    High CPU Use Percentage on Idle

    That process prevents incompatible software from running. Disable it during a session and see if your usage drops. Edit: Check Event Viewer to find the compatibility issue.
  9. I’ve been using Goodyear’s Tripletred and Weather Ready Assurance all season tires. The only ones I know of rated for ice. Weather Ready are the best I’ve owned. There was a lot of roadhouse with the Tripletred series.

    Follow-up question on a monitor. Can this RX570 8g OC push 2k resolution? You think it is worth buying her a 2k monitor, 144hz, IPS, FreeSync - 24”-27” maybe curved?

    My parents did that to me when I was a teenager, not cool. I vowed I’d never do that to my child. I’m mean look at what she is getting at 10 years old. In my career , we have 20 monitors on the walls and 3 on our desks. You should tell your parents they are robbing you of the experience necessary for corporate America lol.

    The case arrived today and I purchased the GPU. It’s hard to not just buy this all at once. Do you think I’d see further savings on the remaining items if I wait till Cyber Monday?

    I’m sold. That saves some cash. It has two RGB headers and four fan headers like the ROG.

    I have been checking the 8gb RX570 because of the price. I just need one with a back plate. I’ll do some more investigating. There are some good sales currently. In regards to the Mobo and RGB, that was a concern of mine. I am also considering the Trident Ram. This MSI board does it default red for the color? I’m on my phone, so I’ll do my research and compile an updated list, tomorrow. Edit: Trying to avoid anything red in this build. Thanks guys.
