    RAS_3885 reacted to tinpanalley in New monitor, old stand?   
    I was just asking on the off chance that someone were to say, "not a good idea to mix stands on different monitors, it's not the same as a universal stand for all monitors because a monitor's stand is built for proper distribution of its weight..." etc etc

    If both the stand and the monitor have a VESA compatible mount of the same size then they will work together.
     
    You also presumably have both the old stand and new monitor sitting in front of you so... just try it?

    RAS_3885 reacted to minibois in Auto-like your favorite Youtubers   
    Yikes, I hope no one will use this.
    While neat in concept, in execution this does make for a better system.
     
    YouTube has installed a system in the past, that made it so a video view would only count in their system, if you watched a video for a certain length of time.
    This was to combat the clickbait that was running rampant on the site. Back then, clicking a video was a video. As simple as that. Nowadays you need to watch it a bit and even viewer retention matters when it comes to YouTube seeing a video as good.
    Now if you throw in this system (which admittedly, does have a way to turn off video liking for channels you're not subscribed to) you are introducing another horrible thing: fake likes.
     
    These fake likes will delude the effect of a proper like, as - if everyone uses this extension - it's basically as if no one is liking.
    It's the age old 'if everyone can do x, x not worth anything'. Of course no everyone on the YouTube platform will use this, but if a significant proportion of users does, you will skew the statistics.
     
    TL;DR: it's bad to introduce fake statistics.

    @HR19 There will always be next-gen hardware on the horizon.  Just build a system that gets you the best value for your given budget and performance goals with what's available today and enjoy using it.

    I'm halfway through the Bioshock series and it's pretty solid story-wise. The gameplay is also excellent.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from SEAL62 in Choice of CPU   
    If that's the goal then certainly not overkill, although I don't think high refresh rate 4k+ ultrawides exist right now (more like a 5k display at that point).

    USB-C is a form factor. USB 3.1 is a protocol.

    RAS_3885 reacted to Shivaxi in Which poison do I pick? (v-sync, g-sync, ULMB, etc)   
    Yeah I'm aware, I was replying to Joostin who claimed he has G-Sync AND ULMB running at the same time, which cannot be true afaik.

    You can also click the little '?' next to the bus interface and run a quick render test from the screen that pops up. The bus interface will update automatically once that starts.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from NineEyeRon in Zotac 1660Ti Coil Whine   
    I've heard the benchmark rumor to "burn in" new cards, but seen zero data to support it or deny it. Since your card is used it's already been through many thermal cycles and would already be "burned in" if there was any validity to that theory. The coil whine you have it what you're likely stuck with as it's a bit of a luck-of-the-draw when it comes to that.
     
    But, I like the suggestion of running F@H if you really want to stress test it!

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from CommanderAlex in My Mysterious CPU Usage (Help!)   
    What is your CPU temps when this happens? Sounds like thermal throttling.

    Why not just set it up for folding for a bit, stress the card AND help fight Covid 19?
     
    I would say not having headphones and the proximity of the case PLUS not having sound deadening on all case panels (glass side panels don’t deaden much noise) is probably why you are noticing it so much.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from KENZY9 in What's WPS button on WiFi Adapter usb?   
    That's a wide variety of styles. What are you looking for? Do you want one with external antenna, or slim profile like a USB drive? I'd do a search on something like Amazon or Newegg and read reviews there.
     
    Is this for a laptop or desktop? USB wifi adapters are usually a bit crap, so if it's for a desktop a PCIe card will be a lot more reliable if you have the ability to install one.
     
    I'm partial to TP-Link only because I've used their networking stuff before. Never used Asus networking gear and have no opinion on them.

    HWinfo64 is great and it will actually interface with RTSS for OSD! You can either display stuff directly, or import sensors/readings into other applications such as Afterburner and configure them to display on the OSD that way.

    RAS_3885 reacted to LogicalDrm in Is this a good positive airflow? How to get the recommended positive airflow?   
    Yeah, no. Adding fans isn't really gonna move temps so much that it would be worth it. Sure if the GPU temps are higher than what they should be, going from two intake to three can improve things. But funny enough, only if case has airflow issues. This is backed up by several youtube tests, including old LTT one. More fans = better comes into play if you have AIO/custom loop where moving air through radiators is the key. On pure air cooling build just having constant airflow is enough. Plus having room being well ventilated and case in place where it can get fresh air and has room for exhausted hot air to move towards ceiling.
     
    But if you have data (can be your own testing) to back your opinion, I'm always willing to change my opinions.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Boomwebsearch in Could Ants Damage Monitor or Computer?   
    You may want to make sure there are no food sources they can be attracted to in you room. Even something like crumbs or small food spills. My one encounter with unexpected ants was due to food left open in a cabinet by accident. Just takes one scout to find it and lead the masses back. Their path to the cabinet was pretty impressive and took a few days of diligent cleaning and repellent (after food source was dealt with) before they stopped coming back.
     
    Sealing up the entry points is always a good idea as well, but they are unlikely to travel that far in your house without being attracted to food.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from lewdicrous in I like Linus, but I don't really like his voice.   
    Okay, yeah, some things can be changed with enough money. If people chose to do so in improve their self-confidence or address their own internal struggles more power to them. They should not, however, be asked to do so to please OTHERS in their life, which is effectively what you brought up in this thread.
     
    You completely missed my point and the fact that you're still trying to defend your comments says a lot.
     
    I hope you treat the people in your life better than you treat people when hiding behind the anonymity of the internet.

    Flaws make us human. When it comes to people in your life and how they judge those flaws (at least the ones you have no control over changing), I'm a firm believer that people who matter don't care and people that care don't matter.
     
    There's a difference between bettering yourself (knowledge, skills, relationships, etc.) and accepting things you cannot change (physical traits for example).
     
    Linus can't control the voice he was born with and you just need to deal with it. Or just don't watch the videos.
