  1. Well, being in a tropical country, I tend to wear short pants, shorts and cargo pants. Depending on the cut and design, I find no issue putting my phone in my front and back pockets. But, I definitely feel it, it's bulky and not something that you can forget or ignore over time.
  2. Has to be, to provide adequate protection, I'm quite used to it since I had also used a UAG Monarch case for the original Fold. To be honest, I've gotten so used to the Fold form factor (and I suspect I'd feel the same with upcoming rollable display phones) that I don't see myself going back to regular phones. Also forgot to include a number of miscellaneous purchases I'd made the past few days to weeks...a couple of used WD 4TB Gold drives (at a good price) A couple of brand new Toshiba P300 3TB HDDs, one shown here with the cases I'd gotten to protect 'em.
  3. Bought the best case available for my Z Fold 2, Spigen's just released Slim Armor Pro which actually protects the entire length of the spine/hinge. Pic below is of the box and my 'old' case, the Tough Armor which, sadly, does not protect the edges of the spine/hinge, the Slim Armor Pro remedies that situation. I didn't note that on the front frame of the Slim Armor Pro, there're two hinges that holds the spine protector in place, nicely engineered by Spigen, hope it last though.
  4. I believe nVidia recommends a 750W PSU, the card itself eats up a lot of power. So, I'd agree with your friends that a headroom of 100W is better, it's better to err on the side of safety. Personally, I'd get an 850W PSU (Seasonic, Corsair) if I need a PSU for an RTX3080 or RX 6800XT. In fact, I'd be getting an RX 6800XT myself, but since I have a Seasonic X-1250 in my rig, all my three rigs have 1kW and higher PSUs, I'd not need a new PSU. Heck, I have a 1.5kW Enermax as a spare.
  5. I don't think this board has been rated since it's not released yet I think (or will be released soon sometime this month), but it should fall into Tier S level. Great VRM design of 14+2, and like the X570 Aorus Xtreme, it's passively cooled. It isn't gonna be cheap, but not priced like the MSI Godlike or Aorus Xtreme either. https://rog.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-Crosshair/ROG-Crosshair-VIII-Dark-Hero-Model/
  6. Thanks for clearing that up! Now, if anyone else wanna add to this, please feel free to do so....
  7. Thanks! But I'd thought that there must be some sort of hardware compatibility to it as well....basically driven by software only?
  8. Even on a docking station connected to my PC bia USB3. 0 cable?
  9. To my great surprise, I've learnt that some HDDs are 4kn or Advanced Format, and most common compatible ones are 512n/e I think. I'd like to buy this 4kn HDD to use as an external HDD to be used with a docking station. My question is, would I be able to use this HDD? Yes, I understand such drives must be enabled as GPT drives and I'm okay with this as long as I can use such HDDs on my docking station.
  10. For my main rig, iFi Micro iDSD Black Label + HD800/ENIGMAcoustics Dharma D1000/Denon Ah-D7000/modded Fostex T50RP (these are on rotation now) or if I wanna feel the explosions and gunfire, an LG Dolby Atmos soundbar. On my 2nd rig, I'd used my Oppo HA-1 with the various cans I'd mentioned, or with my Philips Fidelio HTL9100, this soundbar's great for music too.
  11. When I saw this watch, my knees went weak and I just had to get it....decided my last watch purchase would be a fun watch.
  12. First of a few cases I'd gotten for my phone....an Araree Bonnet case (from Korea)
  13. My KBEAR 2.5mm/MMCX balanced cables came, they sure do look nice, pretty soft so very little to no telephonic. My Fold 2 was delivered to me, gotta say, I'm lovin' it thus far. Guess my priorities have shifted, for the price of this, I believe I could have gotten an RTX3090 with some spare change. I'd realized that in the 2nd Fold 2 pic, the screen had some smudges, was too lazy to retake the shot and upload it.....
  14. As I'd earlier said, my Tissot PRS 200 Silver Dial came today... My watch winder came today as well, one shot empty, last shot when populated with my humble collection... Oh yeah, I'd also gotten a USB powered sterilizer for handphones (also a wireless charger), wallet, small gadgets...
  15. Gonna be getting some nice stuff in the following days: 1. Tissot PRS 200 Silver Dial watch 2. A 4+6 watch winder box (I have enough automatic watches to justify this purchase) 3. Some KBEAR 2.5mm cable for my DAP 4. A Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 (19th Sept) As usual, will update with pics as and when I get 'em.....
