  1. I've always been a proponent of skipping a generation. With how small the performance bumps are these days, that tactic is even more valid. Hell, skipping 2 gens is becoming a legitimate approach to things. Sit tight with the 1080, it'll be good for a while. Start the research up again when the next gen lands.
  2. Also expensive education makes profits right now, whereas affordable takes a few years. We have a very, very short term outlook in this country.
  3. Funny how this is suddenly important now that a certain party is being adversely affected. Back when it the only ones that would be impacted were the ISP's pocketbook, net neutrality was a Very Bad Thing that must not be allowed.
  4. Yep. All of my micro-USB devices have one, makes them less annoying to plug in. USB C can't become standard fast enough.
  5. Got some new bluetooth headphones for the office. After my previous two attempts (SteelSeries Arctis and AKG N700NC) both died in the right earcup after a few months, I decided to go a different route: bluetooth attachment for the famous ATH-M50X. This way if the bluetooth stuff dies, I still have a nice set of headphones instead of a paperweight.
  6. Technically I bought them a month ago, but they arrived today: Burson opamps for my Creative X7.
  7. I'm really getting frustrated with Bluetooth headphones. I've had two pairs die on me with the same symptoms both times: right earcup suddenly gets static and the cuts out completely. First was SteelSeries Arctis, second was AKG N700NC. Both after a few weeks of being used in the office. Literally all I do is take them off my head and put them back on. I'm at my wit's end here and I've wasted $300 total on this bs. I don't want earbuds because my ear canals get extremely itchy after wearing them for too long, and my wired headphones that I've had for years work fine. I don't have the slightest clue as to what is going wrong.
  8. I'm the non-spreader crew, I just put a blob in the middle and twist the block a little as I set it down, spreads just fine.
  9. I keep finding cheap ways to satiate my need to tinker. I just grabbed a PowerMac G5 case for $50 that I'm going to try and make ATX compatible using the tools I have lying around and creative thinking.
  10. Yeah, the PC physically had the Prism, but a 2600 will work without an issue even with a small OC on the stock Wraith Stealth that does come with it. And they stated at the start of the video that they weren't overclocking, so it's a pedantic issue at best.
  11. I want to own a house with a nice garage and a project car or two. I don't even really care if they get completed, I just love the idea of spending an entire Saturday tinkering on a car and listening to music or the baseball game.
  12. I mean, it sounds to me like you've already made up your mind about the 9600k.
  13. Only use I can think of for a 5.25" bay in my case is a water reservoir.
  14. I ordered a 16GB flash drive off Amazon and they sent me a 32GB. Not the biggest win ever, but I was pleasantly surprised.
  15. *Sheepishly types his reply on his MX Brown board that he really likes* I don't notice the sandy feel, but I do know there's been some build variation in the past few years with Cherry. This keyboard is an old Ducky and my other MX Brown board is a Pok3r, so maybe I just lucked out with good switches? I have switched to Kailh Pro Purple on my gaming rig, though. Those switches are glorious.
