    The screw catches fire? Just take it out - or sorry, I mean

    I have the same feeling about this as Steve, I still won't feel comfortable using it even with nylon screw.

    Yeah, what a dumb idea

    Ah yes, because throwing in some random, janky adapter is surely better than leaving the unnecessary 4-pin unplugged. Not.

    I'd have to double check, but you might be able to use the Meshify S2 front panel as a replacement for the R6.

    Do you think the same for regular athletes too? He's probably already made a few millions off of salaries and prize winnings alone and he was on FaZe, so he already has a decent enough job set up for him as a content creator (Having FaZe in your name is probably enough to get you a few hundred viewers on twitch).

    Mateyyy got a reaction from Eschew in Why CPU IHS aren't made out of copper insteed of aluminum ?   
    It's nickel plated copper, both for Intel and AMD CPUs, as far as I'm aware.
     
    Edit: Actually, to further comment on this -- if IHSes were made out of aluminium, you wouldn't be seeing people use liquid metal for the TIM on CPUs. Well, not that that's a very common use case for LM, but still, you can do it. 
    Thermal Grizzly does mention this as a valid use case for their Conductonaut TIM (which is liquid metal): https://www.thermal-grizzly.com/en/products/26-conductonaut-en
     
    Additionally, as mentioned by @Electronics Wizardy above, if you were to lap the IHS on a modern CPU (which is common practice in the overclocking community), you'd eventually get through the nickel plating and the bare copper would be visible.

    Hey there.
    Oof... No advice or opinions on whether ortholinear boards affect the typing experience, or whether they'll make it significantly more comfortable. But if you're probing the market, and assuming you live in the U.S.:
    Planck EZ available for $230+ from ErgoDox EZ. OLKB Planck available for $100 from Drop and offered by OLKB (Parts Sold Out?). OLKB Preonic available for $140 from Drop and offered by OLKB (Parts Sold Out?). ID75 Keyboard Kit available for $105 from Amazon. Technik from Boardsource. 4x12 Ortho (Low Profile) from Boardsource. 4x12 Ortho from Boardsource. 5x12 Ortho (Low Profile) from Boardsource. 5x12 Ortho from Boardsource. Hopefully someone else with more experience with orthos will chime in? 😁

    They are made of copper normally. But they are plated, so if you scratch off the plating, its copper underneath.

    Is there any reason you're hoping to specifically accomplish that with your computer?
    Currently, most day-to-day applications and games barely show a difference in loading times between SATA and PCIe 3.0 SSDs, let alone PCIe 4.0 and so forth.

    Mateyyy reacted to minibois in How much pixel does a average size of human being consume as compared to our sun in an 8K display   
    Okay, so you're asking how tall a human is compared to how tall the sun is? And you want to relate that to pixels on an 8K screen?
     
    (dot will be a decimal point in the coming numbers)
    The sun has a diameter of 1.3927 million KM (let's say the sun is a perfect sphere, so this is its heights/width, etc.)
    Average human male is 1.8m 
    (Sorry for switching to metric, but those make more sense to me).
     
    So let's simply just see, what is 1.8 of 1.3927 million KM?
    1.8 of 13927 would be 0.013%
     
    But of course that is omitting a bunch of zeroes from the size of the sun, which that would actually be 1,392,700,000.00 KM, which is 1,392,700,000,000.00 meters
    1.8 of 1.3927 billion is: 0.000 000 13%  (numbers split every three zeroes to read more easily).
     
    Let's do it the other way around. Let's say a human is one pixel tall. How many pixels would the sun be tall?
    1.384.615.385 pixels. (1.38 billion pixels).
     
    You could also see this as the sun being 769.230.769 larger than a human (double nice).
     
    I think this is correct, but I'm not too good at this stuff, so I might not be 100% correct
