  1. Okay was the 4 page litany in the original post about the legality and whatnot really necessary? As far as I understand they sent a simple request to Nexus, not an agressive demand and it doesn't sound like anyone at any time threatened anyone else with legal actions. And it doesn't sound like CDPR'S message was intended to cover any legal bases but was simply a short message towards the public explaining why they made such a request of nexus. I'm alright with calling people and companies out when they're in the wrong, but this just feels like you're looking for fire where there is
  2. Well that would mean it's perhaps good at radiating heat away from the body, but I reckon covering yourself in a heat conducting metal in the african savannah wouldn't help to keep you cool, quite the opposite
  3. I doubt it's any good when it comes to conducting heat. If it was, then... well this wouldn't work very well.
  4. True, but consider how long that would take for literally hundreds of claimed videos. Also, who's to say that the song he replaces it with might not get claimed in another few years?
  5. YouTube creator Matt Lowne is a relatively popular Youtuber in the Kerbal Space Program community. Very recently, pretty much all of his channel's video's have received copyright claims by SonyATV, referring to a song he uses in many of his channel's intros. According to Matt Lowne, this song called "Dreams" was originally listed in the YouTube Audio Library and could be used under creative commons license, but it seems that the rights for this song may have recently been acquired by SonyATV. Following this, it seems that SonyATV has issued corresponding copyright claims for videos
  6. Probably because they fear getting sued from just about every corner: companies that operate messaging services on Android, pretty much every mobile carrier in the world would be after their arses, the EU would probably stick their noses in there for anti-competitieve practices, probably Apple seuing them as well for good measure (pretty sure they'll find something to whine about again),... Either way, they would probably get more than a couple lawsuits and million dollar fines stuck up their multi-colored nostrils.
  7. Didn't Linus talk about this in his home pc upgrade? Where he tried to upgrade his system but went back to his old motherboard because he runs a TB2 optical cable from a rack to his desk and couldn't find TB3 ones or something?
  8. Olympus with their xD memory cards, same goes for Fujifilm and their SmartMedia cards and others. Proprietary hard drives for the xbox 360, do those count? WMV/WMA/AAC/... file formats. Literally dozens of compressed archive formats.
  9. Of course? If you have the budget to splurge, a better graphics card will get you better performance, that's a given. However it all depends on the games you play and your budget. Do you want to play beautiful RPG's at 4K with ultra settings at 30fps? You're better off investing in a high-end graphics card and not to splurge on the CPU. Or do you want to play FPS titles in 1080p with high framerates? Invest in a high-end CPU and settle for a mid-range GPU. Let's say you have $800 to spend on a CPU and GPU (let's ignore the rest of the system for the sake of simplificati
  10. Let's agree to disagree and leave it there
  11. I'm not? If you check most sources that have benchmarked the ryzen 3000 chips against 9700k / 9900k overclocked, then literally 90% of games will hit 5-10% higher framerates on Intel. With that AIO he should be able to hit a solid 5GHz if not 5.1GHz on that CPU easily. Sure, GPU wise I can't really argue... then again even at 1440p, a 2070 will run most competitive FPS titles at 144Hz no sweat, unless you absolutely need your ultra graphics. Even my old 1070 maintains a solid 165Hz in Overwatch, Fortnite, Apex, etc... at medium to high settings.
  12. Depends on what he plans to run. This setup is perfect for high framerate FPS gaming. Considering he's got a 1440p 144Hz freesync/g-syng compatible monitor on there, I guess that's where he's going. And in this situation, a setup with the 9700K at 5.1GHz can still run circles around a 3900X build.
  13. Sounds like a GPU or motherboard hardware issue. I did encounter a similar issue once that got resolved by resetting CMOS on the motherboard one time, but your mileage may vary. Perhaps try the card in a different PCI slot? If at all possible, swap out hardware for testing purposes, but unless you have an old GPU still around that may not be an option.
