  1. Wanna give me some of what you've been smoking? Because I just did a battery swap myself on a S6 edge+ using an iFixit guide. Actually, I was forced to because the pack became inflated and the phone was splitting in two like that guy's head when the alien creature comes out LOL. I had absolutely no desire for the thing to explode in my hand or in my pocket. Truth be told it's issues like this that makes the argument for swappable batteries that much more relevant again if the quality of the components these shady manufacturers are putting inside are prone to such failure, never min
  2. "Since manufacturers aren't penalized for the excess waste their mentality generates..." Mother nature would like to have a word with you!!! You don't need to Google too hard to find the effects of industry on the environment, when fresh water rivers get diverted, deforestation occurs, atmosphere is polluted and man-made waste get ejected into the surrounding soil and is left unchecked. In the last 100 years humans have gained the ability to DESTROY THIS PLANET. Yet instead of saving it, we live with a "I don't give a shit" attitude oblivious to things like climate change and speci
  3. Yeah, the 8020 thing, where it's 80% brains and 20% effort for a job done right??? Except today you were at 20% caffeine-deprived brains and 80% silly effort. But then I guess it wouldn't have been called a "crazy video" if you had just ordered a MO-RA3 420 external PC radiator that takes standard G1/4 fittings and thrown on 18 of those 3000RPM Noctua Industrial 140mm fans in push/pull. Hey, if the goal was to create some real entertainment value you can always upgrade to those 38mm thick finger-chopping Deltas Maybe next time you can have Aquatuning and Di
  4. And that band aid on the forehead is from getting hit in the face with the eggplant, zucchini and banana
  5. Congrats on the 10M subs. That's a really great build, super unique and totally LMG level. I wouldn't have expected you guys to do it any other different. Very nicely done!!! You know the perfect complement piece would be to build a really nice stand/base for it... and hide a GPU inside of that. You could do it out of wood easy, carbon fiber or even marble if you can locate a guy that can cut the stuff.
  6. Sony had a much better idea for a product like this a few years back. Can't remember the model number though and it doesn't seem to be on sale any more either sadly. Their version was also a smartphone clip on, but rather than attach directly to the smartphone lens it connected to your phone through a dedicated Sony camera app. The lens itself was also a full blown DSLR lens like they used in their actual cameras, only modified with wireless and removed the screen and buttons etc... but kept the sensors and other picture taking hardware. I don't know how it performed an
  7. Alphacool were for a while shipping the wrong screws with their rads. Not sure how they didn't QC this because the difference between metric and imperial thread IS noticeable, except these I believe were metric, but had the incorrect PITCH (thread spacing), so when you tried to screw it in it would seize. This was right about the same time they dropped supplying those nice gold foil stickers in the box and did their own blue label thing which I really didn't like because it was oriented upside down in my case. Sadly, that first hole in one of my radiators got mutilated, but nothing some thread
  8. So LMG is getting horny now. I'll stick around for the one where Sarah and Madison lube up their bodies with high applications of thermal grease and then loop the one where where Anthony and James just shove their fist in and go for it #slooflirpa
  9. Goal Zero makes similar stuff. I picked up a Yeti 3000 last year when my building had a partial power loss right in the middle of the COVID madness. Helped keep my fridge/freezer on while letting me still use a microwave, toaster and razor. Extension cords definitely came in handy. The number of charging ports on it is really nuts - two regular AC bricks can plug in at the same time, a dedicated port for a huge fast charger, and will also handle 6x200W of solar panels. The only downside is that the charging cables/splitters you need are proprietary, Lose or break one and it's not e
  10. Not under $100 and not wireless but I enjoy using my Audio Technica ATH-ADG1 gaming headset. Large drivers, wide frequency response, a handy mic mute button and very ergonomic ear pads and headband. It works great for Skype calls too. They even include a USB dongle in case you don't have a 3.5mm jack. Of course when I have no need for a mic my goto choice is my prized Sony XB700 cans. Again, not wireless and nowhere near the price range of these budget buys, but they are the benchmark standard many audiophiles and headphone lovers will swear by. I use these paired with a TEAC UD-50
  11. SLI may be dead, but there are definitely use cases for having multiple GPU's in one system, and I don't immediately hint at mining. F@H, professional rendering and encoding/transcoding tasks have for years been running on graphics hardware. And these aren't single tasking applications either - you can effectively game and fold at the same time when you have a second GPU in there. Consider also multi monitor applications that need more than four outputs from your GPU. With Windows anyway you can have a maximum of 32 display outputs. Then on the other end of the line you have headle
  12. Hard drives still have two big things going for it - price and capacity. If you have more than 8TB to store you know how painful SSD pricing is. Even a few short years ago a 2TB SSD was still a thousand dollar affair. And while prices have come down, capacity demands for people continue to grow, so larger SSD's still remain expensive. I remember when I built my rig I went with 7200RPM notebook drives. I have three 750GB drives in RAID0 to host my steam library. Performance is great, came out far cheaper than a 2TB SSD would have cost in 2016 and I was easy to set up since I had the
  13. That GPU excuse was pretty lame. AMD/nVidia saw it happen already in 2018 with the crypto boom/bust that happened earlier... and chose to ignore it. They are to blame for 10x0 prices being jacked and staying there ever since. Do you seriously think they would not want to line their pockets with that very convenient extra cash??? Don't fool yourself - these are greedy companies run by greedy CEO's who have the power to manipulate the market. Only now it's gotten to the point where they can no longer do anything about it. They had a shot and failed. Might have been worth your while a
  14. It's great that you guys can throw hardware together from spare, unused old inventory - stuff doesn't get thrown out, hardware gets to live that little bit longer and money gets saved. Happy that Luke gets to rock some better horsepower. Funny enough, the board you pulled out is probably NEWER than what I am still using right now. I jumped on X99 at launch and got a good sample 5960X (with a spare mobo and CPU just in case). My goal was to have a long-term build, and while it is showing it's age, it doesn't "feel" any bit slow. I could use a GPU upgrade of course, but that's anothe
  15. Not sure why this hasn't been brought up yet, but the split screen keyboard used on the Surface Go (and Surface RT originally) is a pretty good native keyboard solution for typing. I can even use it lying down on a sofa resting my arms and type with it quite comfortably. Maybe not for doing a 2-3 page Word doc, but certainly usable for punching out a piece like this in a pinch. Maybe that 8 inch screen size is the sweet spot. I'm wondering why they haven't considered doing a "thicker" Surface Go type device with beefier hardware/battery under the hood. It would certainl
