    Underi got a reaction from Dean0919 in Huawei ban   
    I'd much rather give my info to Google than to Huawei. Their phones aren't anything special either. Huawei bloats their phones with useless applications and ugly UI. I had the Honor 8 until I bought Nokia's 6.1 with Android One and was actually SURPRISED to see how the stock android looked so much better.
    Anyways, I think the ban is a good thing, it'll hurt them for sure.

    Definitely similar. I've played Civ V and I understand where you come from, but it's not quite what I'm looking for. I was thinking of a more RPG kinda game with dialogue and all. Still a great game though.
    I've actually been looking at this game and DA:O. I never got around to buy either one since a lot of people seem to be divided between Origins and Inquisition. I'll have to take a look again.
     
    Checked it out, looks definitely interesting. Might be just what I'm looking for. I'll have to find a good deal since I can't buy it right now.

    Xeons generally have poor single thread performance especially compared to traditional Intel desktop CPUs. Older titles like LoL and Minecraft cant properly utilize multiple cores so single thread performance is more important.

    This is just ridiculous, I think that you need to take this to someone higher up and/or to social media. Obviously they've never given an order id that you would've "100% gotten". Feels like a bunch of misinformed people inside the company fucking up things.

    Underi got a reaction from CYBR_GHST in So I have an RGB question...   
    Does your motherboard have RGB headers? Wouldn't general 5050 RGB strips work? I have a bit more expensive akasa ones with magnets so it easily sticks to my PC's metal case but any chinese 5050 strips will most likely work.
     
    You could get a bunch of RGB strips and two Y-splitters and a bit of extension cables to route the RGB from your motherboard to the case strips and then outside the case and from there to the monitor and the desk using the second y-splitter. Maybe not the cleanest out there but it'd be in sync.
     
     
    Buying strips seperately and not in bulk is a bit expensive but would be easiest for the kind of setup that I talked about.

    Underi got a reaction from Ashley xD in Why does Linus think that a 9 - 8 year old laptop is bad compared to a similar desktop?   
    Might as well throw my experiences here.
    I've owned only 4 laptops in my life, so it might be a bit small sample size, but two of those 4 laptops have failed, both of them had a dedicated GPU, and both had the GPU die. It also most likely was due to high temperatures, in both cases. Even after changing thermal paste and cleaning the fan and the heatsink, both of them would constantly be at ~80C idle and sound like jet engines.
    One was an Asus laptop from 2009, the other a high-end HP laptop from 2014.
     
    The two that have survived are a Lenovo laptop with a Celeron CPU and iGPU and an Asus laptop with an i3 and iGPU, from 2014 and 2018 respectively. Since I don't have any experiences with newer laptops running a dedicated GPU, I won't say anything about that but if you ask me the laptops from early 2010s and late 2000s definitely are more likely to die if they do have a dedicated GPU, since they're so inefficient and run at high temperatures.

    Lol I tried to but it's on there really good. I have to get some 99% isopropyl alcohol and try again some day. It works fine for now, so I'll just keep it like this for a few months at least.

    Underi got a reaction from GreyestGoat in Monster Hunter World is pretty good!   
    Yep, we had no idea either and couldn't refund because we had played for so long already. You can play side-quests together but story quests (which introduce the new monsters) can't be played together for the first time. People have complained about it for 2 years and the devs haven't done anything about it so I don't know if it's intentional or not.

    I liked it a lot, but I bought it to play with a friend. Turns out the game is unplayable for us. There's a dumb mechanic that you can't play the story quests together unless one of you has done the quest already. So what happens is that both of us simply have to play seperately the same fucking quest. Which is insanely idiotic, because the game is a co-op game that you're supposed to play with multiple people. Why can't you progress the story together? We played for 4 hours straight and just dropped it since the co-op had been implemented so badly.

    Underi got a reaction from Ben17 in Should I preorder Cyberpunk 2077?   
    There isn't really any reason to pre-order unless you want to support the developers early on. I pre-ordered a physical copy of the game back in August.

    Iirc RoHS came in 2006, so graphics cards after 2006 shouldn't have leaded tin inside them. I used my home oven for reflowing a couple of old graphics cards and I haven't died of lead poisoning yet.

    Underi got a reaction from SolarNova in R6S community too toxic   
    Why are you guys crying about toxicity in competitive games? Nobody is forcing you to play it if you can't take the heat. If you play like garbage for your rank, you're gonna get flamed. This is the case with every single game with competitive aspects and people playing to actually win, for example League of Legends, Overwatch, CS:GO, Siege, even Battlefield. Honestly, it's stupid how you can have a game rated for adults and not use power words or tell your teammates how things really are because muh safe space.

    It's their money, if they have the cash to use on a high or mid range PC, be my guest. It doesn't at least make it a worse experience if you get a 9700k and a 2070 to play minecraft on the highest settings.

    Underi got a reaction from minibois in Switches failing? Cherry MX Brown   
    I now finally fixed my keyboard. I took the switch from Pause/Break and swapped it for the F switch. It was very straightforward and easy to do. I think that the pause/break also works now, although occasionally, and hopefully I won't be needing it anymore either. I'm getting a 5 pack of Cherry MX Browns so hopefully this keyboard will last me for a long while. I was also amazed by Logitech's build quality. There were no bad solders and the PCB was very nice. It even had the buttons and everything labeled, making my job a lot easier. And we're talking about a 60-70€ mechanical keyboard here.
