  1. I would take that deal in a heartbeat. A GPU that is bottlenecked by a 5820k will also be bottlenecked by a 6700 anyway. And it’s very easy to OC the 5820K to an equivalent performance level (while using a fair bit more power). If you are heavily multitasking it will make a big difference having the extra cores, and it’s easy to upgrade RAM on X99. Basically this is a great trade for you. Provided of course that there is nothing wrong with the hardware. If you trust the person you’re trading with and you know it works I’d go for it. It’s a win for you
  2. Is it a necessity of asynchronous encryption that the provided public key is tied to an owner? What's stopping someone from just encrypting their data and the government not being able to track them. This would just be another case of everyone except the intended targets being harmed by a law.
  3. I'm fairly sure that if you get the seller to agree to a refund if the card doesn't work after a thorough cleaning and drying you should be in the clear. Water damaging electronics is caused by short circuiting. If it wasn't powered on while wet it should be fine. Just be sure to clean it properly as residue from the evaporated water may still pose a risk.
  4. Imagine being surprised that pre-ordering a video game in the current shambles state of the development environment is not a good idea. Just pay for the product when it releases. Otherwise you are just opening yourself up to unnecessary risk. With digital distribution pre-ordering a product is meaningless because there is no supply shortage, so you are guaranteed to be able to acquire the product on release. That said, this is still unprofessional from CDPR. They should've just stuck with the 'good games take time' approach and not disappointed their customers by making a final re
  5. As someone who owns a Modmic 4 uni... don't buy it. The sound is very underwhelming for the price. I've had loads of issues with mine and I just can't get it sounding right, despite trying a myriad of USB cards (as suggested by Antlion). Throwing more money at audio is certainly not a guarantee of a better experience.
  6. You enjoy that . Seems like you need a quiet moment.
  7. Some new paste and you’re off to the races.

    quality Chair?

    Fair enough then. I’d try and sit in one if you can find a store near you. I only weigh 80kg and my Vertagear (marketed for big people) is not looking good at all. I would assume that when Herman Miller say 350 is good they mean it. Loads of offices sell them used, though a size C may be harder to find.

    Imo the Herman Miller is still going to hold it better than the el cheapo gaming chairs. Or just lose some weight

    I would highly suggest getting a Herman Miller, if you can. *very* expensive but they last much longer than the gaming chairs. I’m 6’4” and I have the big Vertagear gaming chair. It’s been 2 years and the thing looks ragged. Herman Miller can be bought used after 10 years of use and still have plenty of life left.
  11. Jissis, boet. Microsoft gooid a young poesklap with the pricing there, my china. Moerse expensive. I doubt the launch is going to sell very well in SA if it’s going to be R13500. That’s a lot of money, especially in a struggling economy. It’ll just be a rich kid thing for a while.
  12. DT770s are cool for gaming. Nice strong bass and the soundstage is pretty decent for what it is. I’ve been using mine very often for like 2 years and they’re still like new. Beyerdynamic Pro line is built to last. I demoed the open-back G4me headphones when I was looking at options and I really don’t know if you’d be satisfied with the change. DT770 is good, but imo not the big jump you’d want from an expensive upgrade. I’d really recommend trying to demo some headphones (dunno how that works with Covid). Beyerdynamic has a ‘house sound’ with a treble spike which gets to so
  13. Personally I’d much rather have the peace of mind of double the write life. But I suppose if you’re at a point where you’re actually using that speed it will be justified to replace a drive more often
