  1. Pretty sure the only fanless X570 board is the Aorus Xtreme and its $600+.
  2. From what I've seen the 1660ti is better than the super.
  3. That's definitely not normal for that monitor, I don't see really any reviews about it having that sort of issue. I'm pretty sure the left side of your monitor is backlight bleed not glow, so definitely replace it, I bet you'll get a new one that's nowhere even close to that.
  4. Personally I would get a replacement, if you get another with bad glow you should maybe think about a different model or going for a different panel type.
  5. No, that's pretty bad. Personally I'd send it back for a replacement and try to get one that has less. Unfortunately it's pretty much panel lottery and sometimes you may have to go through multiple replacements until you get one that is normal.
  6. It's panel lottery, some do some don't, mine is very minuscule OP's is pretty bad.
  7. Not off the top of my head I think 4 years ago, they differ from company to company most knock off or little known brands still haven't fixed it. Only the high quality models or name brands have implemented it. One of the big reasons I only go for well known brands and the more high quality models.
  8. IPS Glow, my brand new ASUS PG279Q has the same thing. It's pretty common, when actually playing games or doing day to day tasks it's not noticeable for me, however the glow on the left side of your panel looks pretty bright.
  9. Going from a 1080ti to a 2060 Super would be a big oof. The RTX 2080 is about the equivalent performance of the 1080ti.
  10. I never said I was an expert. I just have a lot of experience with using them and some minor testing. I don't know the exact encryption or changes they've made but they have been done.
  11. Yeah I've had a few items I've purchased where they didn't tell me to send the item back, I even weeks later asked if they wanted it back and they said not to worry about it. One instance where I ordered a monitor for a customer that was like $130 and they accidentally sent me a Walker, like one for the elderly to get around with, and the shipping label and amazon sticker on the product box said it was the monitor. I contacted them and the guy gave me a $10 credit, sent out a replacement, and said to donate or resell the walker. It was like a $200 walker and I flipped it on Facebook Marketplace for $160. They usually when on chat will specifically tell you to send it back and when refunded or replacement is sent out you will receive a label for shipping it back, every time they didn't say to send the product back I haven't had to.
  12. They create a physical hardwire connection just like if you were to run a standard ethernet cable from a router to a computer. They are two physical adapters that plug into the wall outlets, most only work with two, some models can have multiple but they have to be paired in order to work together, in order to pair them they have to be in the same house on the same electrical wiring and you have to physically push a button on both to pair them. Without physical access to both the house they are setup in and the adapter itself they cannot be accessed. A wireless network is broadcast and isn't a physical connection, it can be accessed from the outside easily. These not so much, say you have a non-wireless router and only use these to connect your devices around your house, there's no way for them to be breached or connected to by an outside source without out physical access. They use the physical wiring in your home and depending on the quality don't bleed onto the grid. Like I said it's hard to explain, I don't know exactly what you're referring to by security, I'm assuming you mean if someone wanted to access your connection without your permission, I would say no, unless said person could physically get into your home and pair another adapter to the ones already set up. They essentially are an ethernet connection, they don't use wireless signals or anything like that, it was possible in the early years for them to bleed the connection into the grid but that has since been fixed with encryption and security protocols built into the new models. And just so were clear, you yourself say you have never tested them, I'm guessing have probably never used them either, that's why I feel as though you don't know how they work.
  13. Not really, someone can't hack into them. They would have to have physical access to pair it with another adapter. So that means access to your home. If you don't have WiFi and just use the adapter there shouldn't really be security risks unless someone is coming into your home. You have no experience with them so trying to explain to you how they work is a little hard. Link your sources on who's saying they're broken security wise.
  14. No, you have to have physical access not only inside their home but to their powerline adapter.
  15. From my testing and others who have heavily tested them they does not cause or contribute to dirty power, as for the password protection and WiFi comparisons, using power line adapters is essentially the same as using a hardwired connection, there is no need for wireless in the home at all when using powerline adapters, they don't send out an accessible signal from anything other than another of the exact same adapter and will have to be paired so you have to be physically in the home, and be physically able to pair another adapter to the one connected to the router, in my opinion that's much more secure than using wireless networks.
