    Worst case scenario I'll get 1mm shorter standoffs

    Checking ebay sold listings, you can get around $35. Personally I would sell for $20 so people will buy it fast.

    ShadySocks reacted to kirashi in IKEA desk chipping :(   
    A permanent fix would involve either not using the desk ever again after you fix it, or replacing the desk with a material that doesn't wear down over time. What I'm saying is that ANY wood material will wear down over time with use, so you can't really permanently fix it.
     
    What you can do though is sand down the edge that's wearing down, then paint over it to repair that section. If you want to go the extra mile, you could sand down the entire tabletop, then prime, paint, and seal it using a clearcoat.

    Maybe look at the rx580 4gb cards. Those can't be used for (profitable) mining anymore so the price is much lower. Also, miners usually take very good care of their cards, they have to protect their investment, usually keeping temps low and efficiency high.

    ShadySocks reacted to jaicax in is Intel Core i5-4470 an official CPU launched by Intel ? I've one but its not listed neither on intel website or any other site   
    Hello Everyone,
     
    So i recently purchased a used Desktop PC from a local retailer, so after installing the windows 10, its showing Intel Core i5-4470 as its CPU, i checked about this CPU on intel website, and all other major websites, cant find any single information about this CPU, I even checked the CPU itself and it shows "Intel Core i5-4470" is this an official cpu launched by intel or something else ?

    ShadySocks reacted to Moonzy in Advice on what laptop to get (out of 3 options)   
    i finished uni with a laptop with 8gb of DDR3, ran solidworks and autoCAD just fine
    of course it chugs a bit when i import huge models/assembly with over 50 parts, but all in all it does ok
     
    one thing i would recommend is getting a decently light laptop with good battery life, because lugging mine around was a pain, and a 120W power brick doesnt lighten the load. and if you have access to a desktop at home like i do, then you can do heavy tasks at home (like huge assembly in SW)

    ShadySocks reacted to LIGISTX in Is a 1080ti too much GPU for a 2700x or 3600x??   
    Its certainly not intel fanboy propaganda, its just how the cookie crumbles. For most people, spending a few hundred extra dollars on the highest end intel chip for a few % higher FPS doesn't make any sense... spend the money on a better GPU since that will make a bigger difference in FPS by far. BUT, if you already have the best GPU, then get the highest end intel chip as it will net you the best performance in games.
     
    Everything is a cost benefit analysis. If someone has a 1660 GPU, they WILL without a doubt see FPS gains with a 10900k vs a Ryzen 3600. Does it make any sense to do that though? No, because the couple hundred bucks extra for that "better gaming" CPU will only get you maybe 3-5% more FPS tops, heavily dependent on resolution. But if you took that few hundred bucks and moved up to a RTX 2070, now your talking serious FPS gains... Would that RTX 2070 get more FPS on a 10900k than the 3600, yes it would. But that doesn't make the 10900k "the right CPU to buy for that person". It just depends on their use case, and what makes sense to their wallet.
     
    That said, no, a 3600x will do better. Zen 2 is a solid notch better than Zen 1/1.5 which is what the 2700x is. Is it worth upgrading too, I would say no. I would wait to see how the xt does when it comes out, or wait until the end of the year (or whenever it ends up being) for the next round of CPUs from AMD. The 2700x is still a capable chip, and going from that to a 3600x doesn't make much sense, its just not worth it. I would get a 1080ti if you can afford it now, enjoy that combo through the rest of the year or even into the next year a bit, then possibly look at a 4600x when that comes out. Its all cost benefit analysis..... 2700x to 3600x on a 1080ti, at 1080p resolution I bet you would see up to a 10% performance bump, at a higher resolution like 3440x1440 for example, I bet that margin drops to 5-6%. Hopefully a 4600x would be faster enough to make that maybe a 15% bump, which is now at the point where spending the money on that CPU makes some sense.
     
    For more detail on how CPU's do make a difference, here is a good resource. A good example on that chart is the Devision 2 at 1440p. That is running into a GPU bottleneck, but you can see how Ryzen just can't keep up with Intel, and it is much more apparent in CPU bound games like F1, especially at 1080p where its extremely CPU bound. https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3587-intel-core-i9-10900k-cpu-review-benchmarks

    I decided to get rid of my bios password, there was no option to delete it so I when create new password window appeared I just hit enter and now it asks me for a password that I don't know. Can't even go to bios.
    Pc is Asus all in one zn220ic. Anybody knows if there is CMOS battery or pins to reset the damn thing? I want to make sure before I open it since the screws are under glued plastic strip that I will probably inevitably mess up if I attempt to take it off.
