    BobVonBob got a reaction from LIGISTX in POSTed cpu without cooler, temps went up to 100c, I left it in the BIOS for 2 minutes. How bad of a situation am I in?   
    That chart says nothing about the lifetime of the CPU, that's a thermal throttling chart.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from Conor Keating in If Noctua made a case.   
    Wow, now the eyesore is on the outside too!
     
    Seriously though, that's pretty good for a noctua themed build.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from minibois in Best Wii games with classic controler only gameplay   
    Here's a list:
    https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/List_of_Wii_games_compatible_with_Classic_Controller
     
    From that list, the ones that stand out as being at least decent are Xenoblade Chronicles, Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros Brawl, Kirby's Dream Collection, Sonic Colors, Sonic Unleashed, and anything from the virtual console.
     
    Also both of the Super Mario Galaxy games, yes they use the wiimote and the nunchuk, but they can easily be played from the couch and imo are the best among all the games listed here.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from Froody129 in Is it true that the 3090 performs worse at 1440p compared to 4k?   
    High refresh rate still isn't available for a reasonable price at 4K, and I'd say the jump from 60 to 144/240 Hz makes a much larger difference than the one from 1440p to 4K. Granted if you're buying a 3090 the price argument is much less compelling.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from BTGbullseye in Is it true that the 3090 performs worse at 1440p compared to 4k?   
    I've gotten plenty of use out of my 144 Hz screen, even in non-FPS titles. 240 and 360 screens are definitely wannabe-pro-gamer-bait imo, but high refresh rate in general isn't.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from GoodBytes in Your thoughts on displays on GPUs   
    An interesting and expensive feature you tell yourself you're going to use, but won't after day four. Then two to six months later you'll remember you paid for that feature and use it once before forgetting about it because it's so inconvenient. Repeat ad nauseum.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from LAwLz in Who thinks LTT should create a UK office?   
    Transitioning a business to multiple locations is a massive undertaking, and exponentially more so if the second location is international. This wouldn't be nearly as simple as you seem to think.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from CouRageRC in Do you frequently change your mobile ringtones?   
    I just have my phone on vibrate nearly all the time, so I'd never hear a custom ringtone even if I did have one.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from piratemonkey in Who thinks LTT should create a UK office?   
    Last I remember it was a writer, Jon, but having one person with minimal infrastructure needs work remotely is an entirely different beast to creating a second location.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in And The Cloning Didn't Work   
    There's plenty of legitimate uses for disk cloning, consider someone with lots of games and a data cap, and if done properly it will work fine. I cloned my drive when upgrading to an SSD and didn't hit problems like this. The issue is very few guides describe the pitfalls like this one.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from kovame7235 in Stick of ram causing both the neighboring slots and itself to be undetected   
    This is the expected behavior, each of the letters is for an individual memory channel, and each channel can have two sticks of RAM. The reason you are supposed to pair sticks in separate lettered slots like the manual suggests is because they aren't linked, so they can be addressed separately by the CPU.

    Nope.
     
    Razer Deathadders have a rubber grip pad where the thumb rests.

     
     
    The answer is to stick it back on with strong double sided tape or glue. Personally I'd suggest double sided tape.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from PeterT in Is Chipzilla dead? Nope! Intel puts all Xe chips on their 42 TFLOP GPU.   
    Hang on 42 FP32 TFLOPs? That's insane. That's double Nvidia's (non-tensor accelerated) FP32 performance on their latest A100. If this translates to other applications Xe could be an absolute monster of a GPU architecture.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from Eigenvektor in Bluetooth Won’t Turn On In BlueStacks During Emulation. Can Anyone Help?   
    You can't use that app inside Bluestacks, since it requires an actual direct Bluetooth connection to the headphones, and Bluestacks is incapable of doing that.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from Kilrah in Should I Try To Charge My Laptop Over USB-C?   
    Go for it. The worst that could happen is your laptop won't charge. USB-C has built in safeguards to prevent things blowing up.

    I doubt the cooler is a deal breaker, they probably have a cooler already, but IMO no warranty definitely is for just £30 less.

    BobVonBob got a reaction from HippY in BOTS ruin 3080 launch   
    It's almost like this exact same thing happened during the 20 series launch, and somehow people didn't expect it to happen again.
     
    But that would be ridiculous.
