  1. Fun but warm times ahead. Got to get those temps under control.
  2. On my Corsair keyboard the dedicated play/pause button can be used, but usually just space bar or left click.
  3. "Corsair says that some HX1200 and HX1200i units may cause compatibility issues with certain motherboards, but the company didn't go into finer details. Essentially, the power supply will prevent the system from booting. The issue may arise immediately or after installation. Corsair has emphasized that the problem will not damage your hardware, but you should still call in for a replacement unit anyway." Source: TomsHardware Just contact Corsair's customer service team and get it replaced.
  4. As a few have said Folding@home, or you could try BOINC. You could also just setup NiceHash.
  5. Is PC gaming going to price itself out of relevancy? probs not, but companies will keep probably try and increase prices as much as they can. Why not? They like money, they have investors to please. The level of performance between a budget system and a balls to the wall gaming rig will expand, maybe even to the point that some people might just choose a console instead. I spend more time on my Xbox than PC, mainly cause of my friends, but it is also easier and the game will always look as good as it can, with no tinkering. Although playing games maxed out on PC, is a sight to
  6. Unless you really thrash your card, then probably not. Use MSI afterburner(or similar software) and lower the power limit a bit just to keep it cooler. I try to keep mine from going over 65c but I have mined with cards at over 80c for long periods. Have some fun, get yourself a wallet and have a play around. That's what I did. The last couple of years, I used btc to pay for my PIA VPN subscription, which I think is pretty cool. Also look into F@H and BOINC, really great causes to get behind and the forum does have competitions every year.
  7. Bring on the 3080Ti. I decided to wait out the 3080/3090 for a better card, based on rumors. Looks like I was right this time. (Now the hard part begins, trying to buy one.) I'm still not sure if it slots in between the 3080 and 3090 or is about the same level as the 3090 or better. I'm hoping it is at the 3090 level of perf, if better then that's just a bonus to me.
  8. Funny, same day Hardware Unboxed puts up their video of the NVIDIA incident. YouTube gets taken offline............just saying. But on a serious note, it must be pretty bad if all these other services are impacted. I can still use YouTube if I open it in a private/incognito session.
  9. Can't beat em, join em. I would really like to see Intel go all in on chiplet designs, The enormous R/D budget and their talented employees could really bring some interesting results.
  10. Yep, that's really the end of this thread. Both are very good and quite powerful. And best of all. FREE. Lunacy (vector design tool) and Audacity (audio editor) are also some free powerful apps to keep in your creation arsenal too.
  11. Nah never. I always find it interesting the people that do and I like looking at their PC's, which are usually fairly low powered. Ive been enjoying the new consoles, pretty solid. The quick resume on the Xbox Series X is crazy quick. Faster than my PC, hands down.
  12. I'm also looking for a monitor for PS5/Xbox Series X, but the one thing most monitors lack is HDMI 2.1. I just don't know how much of the HDMI 2.1 spec/console features I would lose if going with a monitor that's only HDMI 2.0. Basically you want something that is VRR(Variable Refresh Rate), which is important and ALLM(Auto Low Latency Mode), these two together really make the new console shine. Plus through in HDR support for good measure. I'm thinking that such monitors might be hard to come by. The above mentioned LG Ultragear is indeed speced well, I'm just not sure it
  13. I'm very keen, its obvious they mean LTT, also cause Linus posted something on social. I'm expecting some decent results. I really want to see how it fairs on lesser CPU's, although I feel it will truly be utilized best on the bigger or hotter CPU's I would like to see LTT or someone else strap it to the new GPU's. That could be interesting. I have received no tracking details yet, but I'm hoping it arrives this year. Once installed I'll give CTR a go and try and get an under-volt to try and even better help thermals.
  14. I improved from the previous year(47 to 40), but trying to go above 40 is going to be a real struggle next year. Lots of competition at the top end. Bring on the BOINC event.
