    Statik got a reaction from Tristerin in ryzen 9 5900x vs ryzen 9 3950x   
    In that case I'd go with a 5900x.
     
    Keep in mind that going overkill for gaming just means that you don't fully utilize the potential. Especially with more workstation oriented hardware. 
    Theoretically buying a 32c CPU doesn't mean that you're buying a crazy OP CPU that's just more than you need. It just means you're spending insane money to not use 24 cores.

    My 4800H in my G15 regularly hit 95C while gaming. Totally normal. Also if I'm not mistaken, cooling pads do virtually nothing. Just make sure it's well ventilated.

    If you're balling so much I'd not recommend a cheap Antec PSU. Look at a good quality Corsair RM850x/RM1000i. or something like a Seasonic.

    Statik reacted to Bomberh in Tempered Glass Scratches Very Easily...   
    I know this thread is over a year old, but I had a similar issue with the front glass of my Lian-Li 011 Dynamic XL (ROG) (Silver). I had been doing something in the case and I saw what I thought was dust on the inside of the front window. I got a clean microfibre and wiped an area and this caused small scratches to appear, I was not happy.... So I've been looking for all sorts of stuff to remove the scratches and find any information. I have even put cleaning products in my Amazon basket ready to buy!
    Anyway, I was looking at plastic scratch removal and then thought that the windows in this case are tempered glass. So did a search for that and came to this website forum page. 
    When I built this PC over 6 months ago...I remember removing the the film from the front side of the glass front window and both sides of the side window!! I'm now thinking, no, there can't be a film on the inside of the front glass...surely not????? So I looked closely and to my surprise, there is a very faint edge around the inside of the window. Looking inside I pulled the edge and it started to peal away and then, I pulled the whole lot off......I too am embarrassed to think I hadn't seen it! Thanks for the push in the right direction.
    I have attached an image of my case if anyone's interested?? The power of the internet.....

    I got 2 4tb Hitachis from '08 in my build, I can hear them from the next room over. (They are 7 platter drives though...) They sound like pouring a bag of gravel on a wood floor when they're transferring data. Your drives are fine from the video you posted, it's a quieter hiss kinda sound.

    So, I bought a 4TB WD Red about a month ago. I installed it, and... It's silent. Maybe it's due to using the sound isolating mounts in the HDD trey?
     
    My old Seagate Barracuda drive is loud, though. It stopped clicking, but I still don't trust it. I'm going to replace it with three 2TB Crucial MX500 drives.

    Statik got a reaction from Wheresmehammer in Poor Black Friday?   
    I seldom buy stuff just because it's BF. If there's a purchase I want, usually I'll try to hold off to BF to see if I can save a few bucks.
     
    I just swung about ~$200 off a NAS + Drive combo, and I was planning on picking up in the near future regardless.
     
    Last BF I bought my setup, and saved ~$500 on my monitor, and an additional easy $300+ on my system. I've also been picking away at parts for my rifle build that I'm getting regardless. It's good for a few bucks here and there.

    Statik reacted to CableMod in Incorrect Cablemod order?   
    @mosti very sorry about the mistake on your order, and rest assured, if you wish for a refund we will of course provide you with one. We did have an issue where the configurator IDs did get generated incorrectly and it didn't show the pro enabled option or the pro combs. We again though are happy to offer a refund on this, or we are also offering priority remakes (free of charge obviously) if you would rather. Our support team will get back to you immediately though if you already put in a ticket. Our team does have some time off because of Thanksgiving though of course so please give them some time to get back to you accordingly, but they will get you taken care of, rest assured.

    Your lack of "online" privacy has apparently carried over to activity you do offline. I think it's safe to say there isn't anything you do ever, that isn't tracked, collected, monitored, shared, etc. It's spiraling out of control and it's very hard to manage. I really hope Linux becomes more viable in the coming years so I can completely make the switch from Windows.

    The difference is that you do know Discord is doing this while you don't know that macOS is. In fact, you trust macOS to do the opposite, since it's the software running the entire show.
     
    Discord is just an app. We know it's not private. macOS meanwhile is the entire operating system. Discord doesn't know what apps you're running or how long it's open unless it's a game or you tell it to recognize this app. macOS does, and it reports this back to Apple, even if you tell it not to. That's what the difference is.
