  1. i cant recommend a specific printer, but i would DEFINELTY go laser if you will have a bit of time between prints. (more than 30 days) i have went through many ink jets due to the nozzles getting clogged from lack of use. i bought an HP Color Laser jet all in one 4 years ago and am on the first set of toners still. Larger up front cost, but much lower cost of ownership over time. and i have went 4 months with no prints and the very first print after that time was flawless.
  2. I just want to remind everyone: 1) Intel is not changing their basic warranty, Overclocking was never covered, this was a purchased separate warranty program that specifically covers damage from overclocking. it cost an extra 20-40 bucks at time of purchase. 2) i did purchase it when i bought my 9600K because it was going to be my first time ever overclocking and i wanted to make sure if i messed up, i could get a new one. It wasn't a bad deal, $19.99 extra and if i broke my $220 chip, i would get a new one, no questions asked. I wouldn't buy it now, because i know wha
  3. I did on my 9600k becauseI was new to overclocking , but I know I'm one of probably only a few. Still, if it was so few, why not keep offering it?
  4. Q): Are using Overclocking and enabling Intel® XMP, which is a type of memory overclocking, and using it beyond the given specifications covered under warranty? Altering the frequency and/or voltage outside of Intel specifications may void the processor warranty. Examples: Overclocking and enabling Intel® XMP, which is a type of memory overclocking, and using it beyond the given specifications may void the processor warranty. If an overclocked processor was enrolled in the Performance Tuning Protection Plan (PTPP), the protection plan will cover processor replacement only, not memory re
  5. From what I can tell, overclocking is still not covered under your standard warranty,
  6. I'm am a rare exception but I did with my 9600K. 20 bucks was worth it, since I was new to overclocking. Didn't need to use it though. I don't hate intel for it, just kind of sucks.
  7. Summary Intel is killing off its optional extended warranty that it offered for a small extra fee collected at purchase. It was geared towards overclockers as Intel would replace a burnt out chip, no questions asked. Quotes My thoughts I don't see why they would do this, especially right now. It was some nice reassurance to have while trying to get the most out of your chip. I don't think this will go over well.

  8. i was just on Walmart's site at 9 pm ET trying to get a series X, it went straight to sold out in 30 seconds! wtf man edit: this should probably be moved eh? not sure where it would go, is there a "pissed and venting" area?
  9. I was noted: You have an event badge, you should claim your Bronze folding badge How do i do this? or is this something i even need to worry about right now? Edit: never mind
  10. Thank you both for the help! I will start doing my research!
  11. Just upgraded my PC after 10 years, the FX6300 was getting kinda long in the tooth, and i really wanted a disk that had better than 150MB/s read and write along with the many other improvements i would get. So here is my new PC ASUS ROG Strix Z390-F Gaming Intel Core i5 9600K with Hyper 212 evo cooler 16 GB (2x8) Corsair Vengeance LPX 3600 MHz RAM 1 TB Samsung 970 EVO NVME SSD GTX 1070 ti 600 watt EVGA Power Supply So, what kind of overclock can i get out of this? does anyone by chance have this setup and can shoot me some set
  12. Yes it did, i forgot to thank @TehDwonz recuva worked great!
  13. surprised this hasn't been asked already, either i missed it or its a simple thing to do?... I accidently formatted a 2TB Hard Drive that had my 120GB music collection on it, i have done/saved nothing to drive since then as its my secondary drive. is there a FREE program that's not virus central that can recover my data? Also, i relaize how much of a failure i am for not backing up my important data, i already ordered a small 4TB NAS so this wont be an issue again. thank you
  14. I'm going to be buying the new xbox this fall and have started looking at TV's that will give me the full experience I'm paying for. I know the TV needs HDMI 2.1 but on bestbuy com and even manufacturers sites I can't find which version of HDMI the TV's have. Is it worded different, if it's not listed, what else can I look for to know?
