  1. Any Intel network adapter is probably your best choice for basic 1Gb/s ethernet.
  2. I personally prefer Eaton UPS units the most now. Cyberpower is a solid bang for the buck though. If possible, I would stretch to get the PFC model.
  3. We've had people camping outside the store as early as 6 am today. The 3090 launches tomorrow. I have to praise the dedication these people have. Someone even has a tv outside going. Every customer keeps asking what the line is for outside.

      @imreloadin The certain tech store Linus and Jayztwocents do collaborations with all the time.

      I'm not aware of any store that they've both done "collaborations" with?

  4. I want to believe the world was that happy, but I'm sure half of the people in line are resellers. I have to respect the determination these guys have waiting out here though. I personally buy last gen's used stuff for cheap and will keep doing so. I'm a bang for buck person. I'm hoping the best for the guys in line though. To stay out here with the heat, crickets, and mosquitoes is not fun.
  5. The store isn't even closed yet and we have 17 people camping... We don't even have that many gpus.
  6. Some customers are planning to do just this at our store and I'm like...I'm not sure if it's worth standing outside for 12 hours for a GPU. Especially when reviews aren't out yet or would be out while you're camping in the lot.
  7. Indeed. It was super disappointing when we got the news. Employees are also not allowed to purchase for 1-2 months until stock normalizes.
  8. I will only mention that it is the store brand Linus does a collaboration with. We will have a certain amount for online, but the rest will be in store purchase only (will not even be listed as stock online)
  9. I can tell you that if you are trying to buy from the store I work, we will only get 5 GPUs on launch day. I hear stock is super low and will be for the next months.
  10. I wouldn't recommend it, it is quite strong and would probably strip paint or damage it. It is meant to be used on bare metal surfaces for that reason. That being said, it is very good at what it does, but you need eye protection and gloves to use it properly. Make sure you follow the proper mix ratio (you have to dilute it into water). We use the acid based pink coil cleaner for commercial HVAC work and it does a wonderful job on AC coils. A safer alternative I used for PC parts is rubbing alcohol, which also works, but getting rubbing alcohol at the moment is quite di
  11. Well, if you want a tester that will tell you if the cable is wired correctly lead by lead, there's this klein tool tester: https://www.amazon.com/Telephone-Remotes-Klein-Tools-VDV501-823/dp/B00M2DDO0Q/ref=sr_1_3?_encoding=UTF8&c=ts&dchild=1&keywords=Network+%26+Cable+Testers&qid=1599751371&sr=8-3&ts_id=7701919011 I own this myself and it has saved me several times with me not noticing a wire pair flip while inserting into the ends or a punchdown that decided not to like me. However, to test against CAT version, you'll need a Cable Certifier like t
  12. Hmm, I'm curious if this only effects sleep mode and not hibernate. I usually turn sleep mode off on my devices and only use hibernate. I had too many issues with it when Windows 10 first launched where it would never resume or would bluescreen. I hope they're able to fix it though.
  13. You need a KVM switch. You would plug your monitor, keyboard, and mouse to the KVM switch, and your PC and laptop the the KVM switch. You will be free to flip between them with the switch.
  14. For a CPU upgrade on that platform, try to find a used 2600K, 2700K, or 3770K for cheap. They'll all be quite the gain, even more so if you overclock.
  15. Just to double check, when you boot the computer, do you see the MegaRAID LSI BIOS show up at all? You should see the LSI MegaRAID BIOS pop up during boot and initialize devices.
