  1. Is this your homework or something?
  2. No political content, regardless of your views. If something spans politics and tech, the discussion must remain clearly within tech and must not descend into politics This covers all parts of the site, including status updates
  3. That pricing is ridiculous. $175/month = $2100/year. Since you mentioned you have a direct supplier you are buying hundreds of RTX3080 cards from I'm assuming you're getting MSRP or close to it. $700 for the card. Electricity let's say $0.15/kWh. $0.15 * 350W TDP * 24 hours = $1.26 per day, or $460/year. For someone to buy the card and electricity costs to run it 24/7 for an entire year would cost $1160. Even if people can't get cards for MSRP and they pay $1000 to a scalper for an RTX3080 with electricity costs after a year they would still be hundreds of dollars be
  4. Moved to storage devices. There are forums other than general discussion. Please post in the forum relevant to your topic.
  5. That means the memory overclock (what DOCP is doing) is not stable. You could try manually setting it to 3600Mhz and adjusting the timings, or you can try a lower frequency such as 3200MHz. Are there any other DOCP profiles you can choose from?
  6. Thread locked. The forum is intended for meaningful discussions with other people in the community. Please no pointless posts.
  7. I've also been having this issue. Very annoying. Also backspacing to remove lines is broken as well. I believe it's an issue with Chrome/gboard and not within the control of the forum.
  8. Sell the CPU for parts? What are you going to do, sell each core individually? Those SMDs are so cheap they're basically worthless. There's nothing there to sell. You've got a dead CPU that's worth jack, probably caused by your own hand since you delidded it. You sent him a dead CPU, you got back a dead CPU. You didn't even pay him for his time. There's no fraud here. The tantrum you're throwing is pathetic and I honestly feel bad for this guy that you're going around multiple forums badmouthing all because you refuse to accept responsibility for killing your own CPU.
  9. Oh no, companies will just ditch 80+ and start using Cybenetics for certification instead. What a shame. /s Cybenetics provides much more useful tests anyway. Only problem with cybenetics is the rating system isn't as well known or as easily recognisable. Cybenetics ETA efficiency ratings system goes from standard to A-, then up to A, A+, and finally A++. https://www.cybenetics.com/index.php?option=eta If the cost of 80+ gets too expensive it wouldn't surprise me if we saw some of the smaller brands and cheaper models ditch the certifications completely and
  10. Moved to PC Gaming. Please post in the correct section. Stardew Valley.
  11. There's already protections in place which catch the majority of spam and we're constantly monitoring the situation for new types of spam and finding ways to combat that as they come. Thanks to the reports we receive from many members through the built in Report system whatever spam does make it through the existing protections is often caught and removed very quickly, often within minutes of being posted. Reporting spam does help so if you see a post you think might be spam please report it. Spam is very annoying, but if you get too aggressive with the measures to tackle spam you
  12. Im curious, what's the Marine copypasta you mentioned?

    1. Spotty


      aka Navy Seal copypasta.




      What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.


      There's been a bunch of other similar copypasta's as well along the same lines.

      Geezuz wtf. How have I never seen that before.....

  13. Wasn't sure if OP was still looking for advice on price or not, but it seems they want this closed and it doesn't look like this is going anywhere productive. If OP would like actual advice on how much the PC is worth please post a new thread along with system specs in New Builds & Planning (despite the name it also covers appraisals for selling).
