    LukeLinusFanFic got a reaction from ascendings in Most Reliable Solution for Backups and/or Archive   
    You shouldn't buy an external SSD either.
    You should just have two HDDs in raid 1 in your existing PC, and that's it. Linus has a pretty good video on what it means.
     
    Honestly though, cloud backup is pretty good and convenient, if you don't feel like the hassle

    LukeLinusFanFic reacted to Downkey in Looking to upgrade   
    Upgrade to another stick 8gb of 2666mhz RAM. (So you have 16GB).
    Also 256GB probably isn't enough, maybe get a 1/2TB HDD (so you have a 256GB SSD + a HDD)

    LukeLinusFanFic got a reaction from JohanKjeldahl7 in I need help   
    This is nice! GTX980Ti, unreasonably strong PSU, early age AIO water cooling.
     
    I think a fun practice would be to take everything out, clean it (ofc) and reassemble it nicely. Maybe even get a new case if you are feeling like it.

    LukeLinusFanFic got a reaction from Downkey in Build Appraisal   
    Hmm. It's a bit problematic to buy a computer that will have Photoshop and games with only 500 gigs of storage. NVMe isn't that necessary, Switch to a more generic 2.5'' SSD with 1 TB (could be like 10-$20 more, but definitely worth it.)
     
    Kill the fans, and maybe get a cheaper mother board (they don't really impact performance that much). I think that with that you can fit a 3070 in your budget, which is a way better value than the 5700.

    I would seriously trust a ebay seller with 1000+ positive feed back and hundreds sold before I trust this site.
     
    The privacy policy is listed as being updated in March of 2000 but the domain was created this year...I would say they legit copy pasted some one else's privacy policy and posted it..

    LukeLinusFanFic got a reaction from Mark Kaine in Is it legit??   
    The cheap keys are usually from the grey market. Unused oem licenses from cheaper countries and such. If you don't feel comfortable with doing so, you're welcome to buy the full licence. It's always 99$, unless the box itself is on sale somewhere.
     
    As far as I know, you can't get a virus from an oem key. So even if you buy it on eBay (and use PayPal for security), and it doesn't work, you're only out 3$. Imo, the only reason not to do it is moral. And I think you can guess what I think.

    LukeLinusFanFic reacted to .Apex. in EV startup Lucid announces their cars capable of over 800km in range and the fastest charging   
    I wouldn't consider the range specification from different companies comparable because they probably have different standards as with any company that estimates a battery's performance in certain tasks, it only has a 113KWh Battery powering 1080 HP in dual motors, things just don't add up.
     
    Competition is great but it would be problematic if companies started pulling numbers out of their ass to compete

    Search ebay for h81 motherboards. They are the cheapest kind that would fit.

    LukeLinusFanFic reacted to porina in Will it be good enough? for the RTX 3000   
    Don't write off your 9400F. Certainly don't replace it with a 9600F as that gets you only a little more clock but doesn't really change the situation. I'd suggest you stick it out with the 9400F and see how it goes, I think it will be less of a problem than you think. If you later decide you really need to upgrade, I would look at the 9700 at a minimum to make the difference worth it.
     
    As for power supply, what do you currently have? The 3070 at rated 220W isn't too difficult to drive. A good quality 450W PSU can be sufficient, although a 550W would obviously give more headroom.

    LukeLinusFanFic got a reaction from lexusgamer05 in FreeSync on GTX 750 ti ?

    The 2080Ti is still an absolute beast, seriously, don't worry about it.

    LukeLinusFanFic reacted to dizmo in Building my first PC. Is it compatible?   
    It's compatible. The 970 is expensive, you'll get similar performance from something like an SX8200 Pro.
    As for the questions about compatibility, if you go to the Asus website and check the manual you'll find your answers. They also have a RAM QVL list that will tell you if the RAM has been checked to work with the motherboard.

    LukeLinusFanFic reacted to Chris Pratt in Is it too late to start?   
    At young age, I'd say you're worrying about all this far too soon. Being driven and excelling at school is a good thing, and I wouldn't want to diminish that in any way. However, you also need to make time for being a kid. Does that mean gaming? Maybe, maybe not, but whatever you do, find some time for fun and dare I say a little irresponsibility (just a little). You'll have the rest your 50+ years after you graduate to be an adult, and frankly that comes fast and furious. If you think you'll have more time then, you really are very young 😉.
     
    Still, all things in moderation. Even as an adult, you have to learn to carve out time for R&R. You can't be "on" all the time, or you'll just burn out and be useless to everyone and everything. This is actually an excellent time to start finding that balance, because it's low risk. When you're an adult, failure can mean losing your job, losing your.home, losing your spouse. As a kid, it means a bad grade maybe, but you can always recover from that. If you learn to take care of your responsibilities and find time to recharge now, you'll have a skill that will propel you in all things in the future.

    LukeLinusFanFic reacted to StDragon in Old Gpu problems...i think   
    Could be many things. I'll list as the most common problems based on my experience of the symptoms you've described.
     
    Failing PSU with poor voltages on a loaded up rail. GPU overheating; validate temperatures Faulty RAM on the card, or some other surface mounted component GPU chip itself has a microscopic crack in one of the BGA (ball grid array) and requires re-flowing with a heat gun. Thermal expansion and contraction will weaken the solder and exasperate the issue. Faulty Motherboard.

    LukeLinusFanFic got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in Pixel buds. Horrific. Wow PLEASE DON'T BUY THESE.   
    I am the biggest Google fanboy, but I wouldn't buy their earbuds. Like, I'm sorry, but the pixel buds have nothing to offer over the jaybird Vista (my recommendation for you now).
     
    Making truly wireless headphones isn't easy, and requires a lot of iterations. Let others buy the premature stuff.

    LukeLinusFanFic reacted to Jack Foot in EVGA 2080ti BLACK Worth it?   
    I wish I could go back in time and tell you not to bother, this guy is an absolute tool. I’ve seen him on multiple threads on here slamming the black edition, complete idiot and uneducated. I have both cards the FTW 3 and the Black, the black all though the cooling is not as good which is this guys only argument it’s not worth the price difference. They are the same chip and from the same B bin, he has claimed on other threads that the black can’t hit 2000mhz when oc’d.. well actually out of the box it hits 2170mhz I know this because I’ve seen it with my own eyes, unlike this fool who has only seen a single YouTube video because there simply are not to many reviews on the black on YouTube, performance wise the black is a 2080ti founders edition same thing. As for the acoustic which he makes sound like jet engines they are actually very silent even more so than the FE, and the fans are the exact same fans that come on the FTW 3 just one less, they are great fans for low noise they have the E logos all over them and not for some tacky look but actually because the raised bumps cut the wind and make the fans more seilent, with the black I set the fans to 60% and never seen it go higher than 60 degrees. And 60% is still very silent. And I won’t factor it the fact that when I put water cooling on the black which you can do which the money you would save with the price gap between the two and actually still save money going with a black card with water cooling. The water cooled black out preformed and overcooked higher than the FTW 3 with its stock 3 fan cooler, so get the black save the money and buy a water cooler and put it on the black and you will still have saved yourself about $170. And you will have a better performing card. He does not know what he is talking about because he doesn’t have hands on experience where I do, and for both cards running with no special fan curve the FTW 3 only out preformed by a staggering 2%... for about 600$ more. So the black is a amazing option really is. The FTW 3 is a great card but it is not a card that out preformed the Black when it comes to gaming and FPS they are the same the temps will stay lower on a out of the box fan curve, but set you black to 60% fan speed which will not shorten the lifespan by the way and you than have a card preforming at the same fps and same temps and not to much more noise there is a bit more noise of course but the price gap makes it a no brainer. I will happily go into the topic more if he reply’s and will also happily show proof from my personal bench marks that I did myself and will re do them and I will also compare the FTW3 to the Black with a water cooling solution. We will see him quickly fade away from the thread when he realizes he really just bought a more expensive card when he didn’t have to and maybe he just doesn’t have the know how to make a good water loop but I do and can show the Black water cooled getting lower temps and higher clocks than the FTW 3 with its stock cooler which is still about $170CAD more than going with a black and buying a water cooling solution.. I posted this for anyone scrolling this thread curious about the black, Do NOT LISTEN TO THIS FOOL. He simply is uneducated and seems to be in love with his FTW 3 and has a passionate hatred for Black cards not sure why logic isn’t there and he provides no real evidence but I will and I’ll happily do so. Not sure why he hates blacks so much maybe he’s racist, Lol.
