What unpopular tech opinions do you have?

Recommended Posts

A lot of people leave out high quality fans in an expensive build. Crazy to see stock fans :P

 

Maybe because cooling doesn't make a lot of difference in the end. 

Heck I run a heavily overclocked i5 760 which is a 95W TDP cpu PASSIVELY  with a Scythe Mugen 4 PCGH. Max temps are better then my 120mm AIO cooler were the pump died after just 6 months.

Mine is, ssd's are a waste of money on $1500 USD budget

 

I don't want to be rude, but how does a SSD suck&waste of money when you don't have one  :o

No it's not:

So with his logic, Intel should just have made the stock clock 3.0Ghz just so that the % of overclock could be higher.

I assume that's on LN2, because that is the only way you can get to 7ghz. I'm talking about normal coolers, no ones that costs $10 per minute.

I don't like EVGA. No idea why, I just don't.

Overclocking is overclocking  :P

I think Sandy Bridge never even reached 5Ghz even on LN2.

with in the budget I said it is because you can get better parts also that is my opinion and I never said they are bad or suck

Windows 8.1 isn't a bad OS. 

 

Fucking this. I even ranted about it on that shitty website iVerge and managed to get widespread support but still... a lot of people are clinging in to this idea that working on a Mac is "somehow" more productive than on a PC.

 

I don't hate Macs. But Windows smokes every other desktop OS in terms of getting things done. No workarounds, stupid custom driver bullshit or anything, everything just works.


Stop bloating nonsense, and reason to contribute in a constructive manner.

Well yeah, I just have a 128GB SSD, I agree if you use your PC for 99% gaming then a SSD it's not worth it.

I hate macs for the plain reason that you can also install Mac Os X *now legaly for free* on a Custom PC.

 

And I hate Iphones not for their OS but for their shitty specs.

Sandy bridge hit 5.77 on air... If you want to look at record for all the CPU architectures, look here. You can see that sandy bridge got to 8GHZ, Ivy got to 7.247GHZ, and haswell got to 7.181GHZ. Get your facts right before you correct somebody.

I'm sorry, but dayuumm son... 8544 MHz on a Intel Celeron 352. We should all quit complaining and buy one.

i love my amd fx 9590! (blahblah blah i know i5 is better blah blah blah ctisicn critiscm....)

My 9590 is great! :) Got it to 5.1 GHZ then stopped there because I'm only air cooling, granite with a NH-D14.

Windows XP is good, only bad thing is Microsoft's a greedy bit*h and that's why there's no support and no DX 12.

Last good Intel CPU is the 2600/2700K(maybe 3770K), because everything after that is bad at overclocking.

The G3258 is bad for overclocking?

In my opinion, everybody holds their iPhones the wrong way, when in landscape mode. The home/Touch ID button should be on the left side, not the right! It's that way in apple's ads, commercials, and demonstrations. Yet basically everyone I know with an iPhone holds it with the button on the right. It's kind of a pet peeve I guess...

Are you left handed?

Well the nh-d14 is still one of the best coolers on the market. The only ones that beat it are larger dual towers and 280mm+ AIOs. It's generally a better value to get an intel xeon 1231v3, i5 4690k, or i7 4790k.

Sadly with a split family and all I can't be with it atm :( but I will take a look at min when I can... I always noted about 65 C when gaming though so it doesn't do to bad.

People hate my opinion on Mac OS X being superior than Windows on all fronts apart from Gaming.

 

I have used both Mac OS X and Windows together for years however for my Work, Lecturing or Web Development I find using a Mac is a lot better than Windows, just my personal opinion everyone is different, I can do things on OSX faster than I can on Windows.

 

Would I say that everyone needs to use Mac OS X? .. NO everyone is different, I find the Mac UI and Experience to be better than Windows however I bet there are people who would swear that it's the other way around.

A lot of people leave out high quality fans in an expensive build. Crazy to see stock fans :P

 

The reason I mention fan control is so I can use cheaper fans and still have them quiet. 

 

Examples: 

 

I found 140mm Bitfenix Spectres for $7(CDN), I would rather buy three of those instead of one Noctua. 

 

The stock case fans are loud at 100% (Corsair C70), I want them quiet until I need the cooling. 

 

I grabbed a $13(CDN) Lepa Vortex for my CPU heatsink.

 

 

All in all, I would not recommend "cheap" fans, but no way would I pay a premium either.

 

FYI:  I have a Bitfenix Recon($35...CDN) in this PC.

At 2.41 billion transistors the A10-78xx APU is the most advanced and sophisticated consumer grade piece of silicon on the planet.

Bang for the buck( that's getting value for your money for you intel fanboys) the fx-6300 and A10-7850k /MB combos for 95 and 110 bucks are unbeatable.

People who actually write code for a living should be listened too on hardware issues.

Console gaming has a HUGE effect on PC gaming.

PC gaming is still getting table scraps from console gaming, the pieces are just bigger.

Linux is awesome.

Apple products are awesome cause Rush Limbaugh likes them.

OK amm who haven't I pissed off?

If this forum was a good source of info Linus Trovalds, Cernak(is he still alive?) and Andy Tanenbaum would be posting here.

LiteON and Raidmax make awesome PSU's (fact from years of personell experience).

The switch from VLIW to superscalar multi-core x86 architecture in console gaming will be the biggest thing to happen to PC gaming since the 486.

OK now I have pissed off everyone:) :):)

As a matter of fact I am. I never considered this, but it's possible for me to hold it differently because of my hand orientation. All my friends are right-handed.

Both of my parents are left handed but all my siblings (including myself) are right handed, so when I read what you wrote I immediate thought you were a lefty. Most people have a tendency to do thing in orientation of their dominant side. I hold my phone with the bottom to the right but I will use my tablet either direction.
