  1. So, I know about Scotty Kilmer and his controversial takes and tone in his videos so I'd watched him a couple times years ago, but I came across a recent video of his and the production quality is up so much compared to before. The video editing was awesome and engaging, though it did use a bit too much outside marketing material from time to time.

     

    It does look like the "toxic" (imo) clickbait titles are still in there, but his tone inside the video feels more neutral and informative than before. Kudos to him!

     

    Here's the video in question (shitty clickbait title notwithstanding, the info inside there was really well put imo)

      Statements about battery care are dependent on battery chemistry.  And electric cars have all kinds of different weird chemistries often not seen elsewhere. He seems to be talking about NiMh. If the car uses NiMh then OK. Ymmv though.  Different chemistries have different needs. It will vary.

  5. Anyone have experience with the Arctic Accelero Hybrid III 120 or 140?

     

    @WoodenMarker tagging you here because I wasn't able to find a reputable review for this. Would you recommend it as a replacement for my current EVGA Hybrid system for a 1080 Ti?

     

    Cheers 😄

      I haven't personally used it but ngl, it does kind of just look like a generic Asetek AIO.

      It's good but a bit old. If there's warranty, it's hard to go wrong with. Just about any 120 / 140mm AIO should be fine provided proper mounting hardware. 

  6. I just discovered something amazing. This might only work on Firefox, but here's the gist.

     

    Put your cursor on a text box, then press Ctrl + Shift + X.

     

    The result is this:

      It might take you 36 months to learn Linux, though...

  8. I am going to recommend you a 64GB RAM Kit then. It'll remove the limitation of working with huge 50mpixel + images and tons of layers. If you consider the additional $100 or so to be worth it, 64GB is more than you'll ever need for the next decade, probably. I would say if you're looking for cost efficiency, it doesn't get better than the Ryzen 5600X right now. You could downgrade for even more efficiency to a $210 last gen Ryzen 3600, but you can afford the 25% faster single core CPU.
  9. I'm going to be honest, I use your CPU Cooler Performance Tier List so often I feel like I should donate. Lol

  10. I disagree. For one, the Ryzen 5600X has similar multicore performance to the 3800X, despite being only 6 cores. This is because the single core performance improved very significantly compared to Ryzen 3000. In the case of the 5800X, I think if you're not someone who already owns a business and is already making money with their computer, the $120 price difference does not justify the jump from 6 to 8 cores in my opinion. A Ryzen 5600X is the only CPU you need for consumer or prosumer workloads.
  11. Welcome to the forums! There is tons of upgrade room for your system for sure. Your GPU can continue to work fine for a while and I recommend that you look at other things because graphics cards are still at inflated prices recently. With that said, your budget is really good and accommodates for quite a bit of upgrading, so let's get started with the rest of the system and then see if we can fit a good GPU in there.

  12. Today I learned I'm cranky about Razer.

     

    It is not without reason, however.

      My list of Blacklisted Companies when it comes to Hardware: Razer, MSI, Dell, HP (just bought an Envy for school so hope that'll at least be good), Microsoft, Thermalfake, Apple (don't buy any iPad ever if you try to actually do something productive on it which isn't drawing or using the AR Sensor, Apple Watch has to be reset every few Months because of Battery Drainage problem after Watch OS Update 7.5) at least the iPhone actually does as I want.

  14. ~Moved to Laptops and Prebuilt Systems I don't have experience with Razer laptops, but I can say that all 4 Razer products I've owned have had big reliability issues and started causing problems prematurely (even after just 6 months). What's more is that if you don't live in one of the 8 or so countries that they have warranty coverage for, they will not honor your product's warranty unless you ship it to one of those few countries. (I actually have screenshots of my email conversation with their customer service reps). So the unreliability you are having to me is not n
