    Chett_Manly got a reaction from lewdicrous in 5 years is to early to shut off my note 3   
    This is in response to WAN show.
     
    As a proud 5 year voter, I say tough cookies. No operating system should have to support OS updates and Security patches for consumer hardware that hasn't been on sale for 5 years. That is entirely unrealistic with the pace of change in the industry.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Mister Woof in PewDiePie Isn't to Blame for the New Zealand Mosque Shooting in Christchurch   
    The manifesto explicitly states this was an attempt to create more conflict, to create more censorship, to push people to extremes. This is why he used the gun he did, he used facebook live, he shouted out Pewds...
     
    The whole thing was intentional, and yet media like Andrew Todd are either ridiculously stupid, or knowingly giving the terrorist exactly what he wanted.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from EarthWormJM2 in Dissenter - The comment section of the internet - And a severe game-changer for free speech   
    A truly great idea. Simple, yet extremely effective. The only issue is that it still relies on underlying internet infrastructure that is in the hands of the tech companies who are run by progressives. So I suspect if it ever gets popular they get thrown off whatever hosting support they had, whatever DDOS protection they have, mass DDOS'd, and blacklisted.
    Most countries sucking does not mean the internet has to suck. You do have a right to free speech, its a human right, its a god given right, you were born with it, and they have stolen it from you, and now tricked you into thinking it was good for you. Hate speech laws have never reduced hate, they have only ever reduced speech.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Glenwing in My 4k monitor only running 1080p   
    Looking at your monitor on Amazon, it says it has HDMI 1.4. HDMI 1.4 only supports 4k 30hz, and lacks the HDCP necessary for running 4k on the XBox. It is not compatible.

    Chett_Manly reacted to DailyProcrastinator in My review on the Noctua NF-F12 (and my resolution on ML or NF)   
    If you are looking to purchase Noctua fans I am sure you are well aware of their reputation, and specifically their beloved NF-F12 fans, and with good reason. You get a premium packaging and unboxing experience, and most importantly their extremely high-quality fan. All around I really love these fans but subjectively there is one reason I can’t give it a 5-star review. And that reason is the Corsair ML series fan.
     
    I will begin with the subjectiveness of my review, to say the ML is better is not a fact, simply my opinion. However, I will lay out some facts as to why I prefer the ML over the NF, but every person can interpret facts a little differently, and respectfully I have no issues with the NF-F12. 
     
    Anyways, for those of us that care about aesthetics the chromax edition of this fan is really the only option, I honestly could never bring myself to buying the standard puke brown version (for those of you that can look past that I applaud thee). But for your $29 (Canadian pesos) hard-earned dollars you get a nice assortment of colour swappable red, black, white, blue, yellow and green anti-vibration pads. This along with the 4-pin PWM cable extension all wrapped up in a nice large package. Out of the box performance is great, these bad boys move a lot of air and have performed excellently for my use. I have three of these as intakes against the mesh front panel of my Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG pulling air through my four 3.5” hard drive cages. This of course restricting some air flow and causing some more fan noise (to be expected), despite this my hard drive and internal case temps are respectable. I decided on these fans as they move a lot of air despite being very well static pressure optimized, perfect for being mounted in front of hard drive cages.
     
    But now I reason with the value of these fans. At $29 (at time of purchase) they represent a ‘premium’ 120mm option. At the time of this review the ML 120 2-pack is $37.50, which subjectively is just as quiet of a fan around 800ish RPM (my opinion) and looks pretty much the same, you just don’t get colour swappable anti-vibration pads. Blind math prices them at $18.75 each which is over a $10 saving per fan, so if you need four fans for your system this equals to a $40 difference. Now some of you would argue that you get what you pay for but to that, I would argue, “do you really?” and “is the price premium necessary?”.
     
    Let me throw some raw numbers into the equation:
     
    Corsair ML120 2-pack: (ML120 Pro series have the EXACT SAME specs)
    Price: $37.50cad (effectively $18.75 each) Speed: 400 - 2400 RPM Sound level: 37 dBA @ max RPM Static Pressure: 0.2 - 4.2 mmH20 Air flow: 75 CFM @ max RPM Warranty: 5-year  
    Noctua NF-F12 PWM Chromax:
    Price: $29cad Speed: 300 - 1500 RPM Sound level: 22.4 dBA @ max RPM Static Pressure: 2.61 mmH20 @ max RPM Air flow: 55 CFM @ max RPM Warranty: 6-year  
    I will let the numbers argue for themselves, but to say one is better than the other is not entirely objective. However, I PERSONALLY find the ML fans quieter at the same RPM, and although I keep my systems as quiet as I can, the higher max RPM of the ML fans is something I am sure that appeals to some users. To be fair there are higher RPM models of the NF-F12, the industrial 2000 and 3000 RPM models, but these come at $33 each, and are not available in a chromax version. 
     
    So to wrap this all up, if you still want/prefer the NF's, great! You are making a good purchase and will be very happy. But having personally bought three NF-F12s and one NF-A14 I will stick to my ML’s in the future. I own the 2-pack variant, Pro LED’s (in 120mm and 140mm), and the Pro RGB’s. When I consider the three variables of price, performance, and aesthetics, the ML’s are my favorite in all 3 categories. That said the NF chromax fans are a very close second, and I genuinely hope to see some new colours and possibly an RGB version in the future. I think this would get Noctua more customers. Anyways, to those interested, I can highly recommend Noctua products and specifically the NF-F12 chromax.

    Wait until summer for Ryzen 3000 chips. The move to 7nm is looking to be very significant, as AMD likely will match or beat Intel in single thread performance while also shipping 16 core consumer chips.

    Chett_Manly reacted to Mira Yurizaki in wadsdd   
    This is still vague. ISP availability can differ by neighborhood. Like I have Spectrum and AT&T in my neighborhood, but literally in a neighborhood that's a 5 minute drive away, their availability is a mix between AT&T, Comcast, and I believe Cox.
     
    And since I'm sure you don't want to give that up, you're just going to have to do some research yourself and come back with who's in your area.

    Calling it now, Mac prices won't drop, and performance will be worse.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from XR6 in What's your opinions about APPLE as of now?   
    I think their standards have slipped, and they no longer innovate.
     
    The MacBook Pro is the perfect example of this.
     
    I have never been a Mac guy, but I have long recognized how good the MacBooks were. 5 years ago I'd have argued the only problem with a MacBook Pro was the price. Except for the last 3 years now, it's been more than that.  Bad Keyboard. Pointless touchbar. Thermal issues. Reliability issues. Limited IO that requires dongles or a hub. Half of the devs in my office who have Macs, still have a 2015 unit, and are trying not to upgrade. The ones that have the newer ones, aren't too happy with it. 
     
    So Apple has slipped in my opinion. They now rank alongside Dell and HP in their quality and the issues their products have. You take an XPS 13 put it up against a MBP 13 inch, and I see one with a better screen aspect ratio and bigger track pad, and I see one with a better keyboard, and a touch screen instead of a touch bar. The Apple product is not clearly better, though they still charge like it is.
     
    On the iOS side its not really better. Their big idea of the last 5 years was what, The Notch? 3D Touch? Making the bezels smaller on the iPad Pro? I am not seeing any real innovation here.

    Actually right now the market is great for developers, but even if it wasn't, if they care that much about their political point they should quit and look for work elsewhere, then expect the company to bend to their will, and especially not publicly attack their employer.
