  1. I managed to get a 3090 about a month ago, and I'm happy with it. However, I've seen in reviews that the cooling for this specific card isn't great and the fans are a bit loud. I've got a custom loop from my old system, so the only thing I need is a good waterblock. EK doesn't seem to make one, and my local microcenter doesn't either. I've seen some on Amazon, but I'm worried about the quality of the product from brands I don't know and don't see on Linus, GN, Jay, etc... The specific model I have can be found here https://www.bestbuy.com/site/gigabyte-nvidia-geforce-rtx-3090-gamin
  2. Thanks. I do lots of different work, but mostly in software development which involves compilation of large source code environments and I use Blender for 3d work on top of gaming.
  3. I managed to get a 5950x two days ago and it's running well. However my memory is a few years old. I've got an Aorus Master B550 motherboard and I'm running 32GB from a 64GB kit of 8gb Corsair vengeance DDR4 3200 CL16 sticks.(I used to have a Threadripper system hence the 8 stick kit) Am I losing a meaningful amount of performance with ram this 'slow' or are we talking single digits. Also, is my motherboard holding it back at all?
  4. Could you go further into detail in regards to your answer, especially on the first question? Also, to answer why - I'm interested in convenience more than data security for my home pc. The data I store is mostly games, and I have a very fast internet connection. I don't care if there is a higher chance that I lose data. I'm mainly annoyed at having to choose different storage locations for my games and want to have everything in the same virtual location.
  5. I've got 5 different solid state drives that I've bought over the years. Samsung 850 pro - 250gb Samsung 850 evo - 1tb Samsung 950 pro - 500gb Sandisk SX930 - 1tb Seagate Firecuda 520 - 2tb I could use raid 0 for the two 1tb drives, but everything else is a different size, and they all operate at different speeds. Several separate questions: 1. Will windows prioritize storage on the fastest drive first? In my case the Firecuda 520 2. Will my system run at the lowest drives I/O speed at a minimum? 3. Is this something
  6. I'm fortunate enough to live near a microcenter and they get gpu stock in fairly regularly. I'm visiting the store daily in attempts to buy a 3090. I've been successful in finding several 3070s one for myself and a couple of friends who came along with me. I could probably sell my 3070 at a high mark up even with a couple of months use, but fuck that. I don't want to become part of the problem and I want a gamer to get my card when I'm done with it. I also don't want a trillion messages and solicitations, and I want to sell my card safely to someone who will use it for gaming.
  7. I found a starting point on Tom's Hardware to get an easy stable 4.1GHZ, but the article is pretty old and my setup is meant for extreme overclocking so I want to know what I can 'safely' do to squeeze every last drop of multi-threaded performance. The highest temps recorded after running various benchmarks was 55c with an average of 40c under load, so I'm nowhere near thermal limits. This is my first AMD setup since 2008 so I'm not sure what I should try and what voltages are safe. Setup: Threadripper 2950X ASUS ROG STRIX X399-E 64GB Corsair Vegence RGB Pro 3200MHZ
  8. I'm working on a game in unreal engine based on League of Legends and I'm in the middle of replacing my place holder models with the final ones. Asset creation is my weakest area, and in my research I've been trying to replicate the model fidelity seen in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cz-LsIHL8o&t=15s I think the software they are using might be 3ds max, but I'm not 100% sure. My biggest question is how did they convert the hair mesh in the picture below. Hair is by far what I've got the least amount of experience in.
  9. I'm curious, does Linus have a place for video requests?
  10. Hey guys, I'm buying a house, and looking to expand my smart home stuff. My router: Netgear Nighthawk X10 AD7200 Currently I have: 1 Phlips Hue Bridge 16 Philips Hue Lights 1 Google Home 1 Google Home Mini 1 Nest Thermostat 1 Nest Indoor Camera 2 Samsung Smart Televisions 3 Smart Phones 3 Desktop Computers (1 Wired) 1 Ipad 1 Playstation 4 1 Laptop Computer For a total of 32 devices, but I suppose the hue bridge handles all of the lights so probably only 16 devices on my network at once.
  11. I found this in the html page for a router. Does anyone know specifically what its for, and is it bad? weird_hash.txt
