    Beef Boss reacted to wall03 in Apple M1 = the rest of us are living in the stone age!?   
    other computers still outperform it.
    Other chip makers just have to innovate even more now that Apple is innovating faster then ever.
    AMD started innovating and really shook the desktop industry, but Apple is running ahead of AMD.
    Competition = good.
    it doesn't mean your things will suddenly not work.

    Beef Boss reacted to GhostRoadieBL in UPS basics   
    that's extremely vague info for us to help you out, 15KiloVoltAmps is just a capacity not the model number. I have to assume you are looking at something like the RT 15KVA 208V maybe? The plugs for that one are twist lock connectors for high amperage plugs, these usually are connected to power distribution strips with the standard 3prong connection most people are familiar with. 
     
    This is for higher efficiency, some servers will have 200v capable power supplies which run at a slightly higher power efficiency (think 80+ platinum and add a few percent). For small installs it doesn't make a huge difference but when 100 racks of servers are running those few percent turn into big$ every hour. 
    one large UPS will be more efficient than multiple smaller UPSs for power consumption (less screens, transformers, charging losses etc) and the larger the capacity (10, 12, 15KVA+) you will end up with a longer run time if not everything is consuming max power compared to multiple smaller UPSs (ie 5x 2.5KVA each) where your switches will likely last days and your server will last minutes. 
     
    it all depends on the models but 'usually' their power supplies can use either 110v or 220v internally.

    Ahh, the beauty of universal power supplies. Say goodbye to caring about all voltages below 240V and pretty much all frequencies. Most switchmode units these days probably wouldn't care if you fed them 400Hz.

    Beef Boss reacted to Hackentosher in LED strip edge connectors   
    I think those pads are usually a 0.1" pin pitch so you could solder on some normal 0.1" pin headers to make the connection, but those don't bend well so I usually bridge the connection with some 18awg wire.

    ryzen isnt great for overclocking in general, i wouldnt run pbo on my chips as the voltages seem too high for comfort and my 3600 runs hot enough stock. i believe theres a bit of overclocking to be done with ryzen apus but im not super experienced there. mostly just memory overclocking, many crucial/micron e-die dimms are capable of 3600c16 or better with a reasonable amount of voltage, which would be the ideal memory speed within reasonable costs. a ballistix kit runs you ~70 bucks though they go on sale and you can save a few bucks with the lower binned 3200c16 kit rather than the 3600c16 kit as both overclock pretty closely. no point in doing so on any board under 100 bucks nor with a 3400g as a320s and cheaper b450s dont support higher clock speeds than 3200mhz and i dont think the "3rd gen" apus actually support over 3200mhz either since theyre zen+ arch instead of zen 2.

    yeah thatd work. gskill aegis dimms are almost always the cheapest so youd be able to get one 8gb stick for ~25 bucks now and another 8gb later, and match them such that theyd almost certainly work nicely. maybe splurge a bit and get crucial ballistix, now that crucial uses the same ICs across every kit they sell i hear theyre perfectly compatible across kits. plus e die overclocks well, if yall ever get into that

    Beef Boss reacted to Eschew in Ducky keyboards   
    Hey there. Took a look at the Ducky Frozen Llama. Note that I've never touched a Ducky keyboard before, take the opinions/observations below with a grain of salt.
    Seems to be a recolored Ducky One 2 Mini or Ducky Mecha Mini. Only one Frozen Llama (One 2 Mini) is listed on Ducky's official site, but there are two variants (One 2 Mini, Mecha Mini) on Mechanical Keyboard's site. Ducky One 2 Mini: Plastic Case, Cheaper ($99.00 on MK). Ducky Mecha Mini: Aluminum Case, Expensive ($129.00 on MK). Comes with Cherry MX's switches, your choice of Blue, Brown, Red, Black, Silver, or Silent Red. If you don't like the Cherry MX options, the switches can be switched out for other plate-mounted switches, but you'll have to do some soldering.  
    Good Stuff
    Ducky's built a reputation around building decent quality, functional keyboards. On top of that, the Ducky One 2 Mini is one of their more popular sellers. Double-shot PBT keycaps with white legends. Pretty and durable. Includes 10 uniquely-designed, purple keycaps. Height can be adjusted, there are three levels.  
    Gripes
    The keycaps are not RGB shine-through. RGB lighting will only illuminate the gaps under the keycaps, and will not touch the legends. Plastic USB-C cord. Not paracorded (braided).  
    TLDR: A decent buy for $99.00 - $129.00, methinks? Go for it, if the non-RGB legends and plastic cabling don't bother you all that much. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    There was a time when ducky was a price performance leader.  The ending of the cherry switch patent threw everything up in the air though.

    Hello all, I'm kind of looking into a decent keyboard. I'm using a coolermaster MS110 I believe. And while it's very nice I saw this frozen Llama keyboard I kind of fell in love with. I like the colors a lot. Are ducky keyboards nice quality and would it be worth pre-ordering?

    I think he is referring to the traditional military thing of putting a condom over the front of a gun barrel to keep sand and water out.  It works quite well because they can be shot though.
