    weeblord reacted to SolarNova in Nvidia control panel won't allow me to set a custom resolution (need to OC my monitor)   
    Indeed Nvidia wont allow DSR and custom resolution at the same time for ...reasons..
    if you want both ether edit your registery with a custom resolution and use DSR via NVCP.
    or use CRU (3rd party program) and create a custom resolution in there,  and use NVCP for DSR.
    I personly use a 21:9 custom res + DSR x4 so i can run 21:9 (3840x1640) on my 1080p display (42"Plasma) without the games looking like absolute crap at the non DSR 1920 x 820 resolution.

    I mean it's exactly what I would expect a REAL phishing attachment to contain: Something too good to be true. The Cyber Security enthusiast in me sees nothing wrong, but at the same time

    weeblord reacted to piratemonkey in Badge list   
    I want to be able to see a list (similar to the staff one) of all members with a certain badge type. Perhaps also a list with all badge types too. It's really just for curiosity's sake, so it's not really important.

    weeblord reacted to AndreiArgeanu in "What is OBS"   
    No, it's used by everyone world wide, including LTT, and thousands of popular streamers and content creators. It's a free piece of software after all. I suspect as well it has something with OBS and Teams not working well together, but OBS doesn't have access to the actual video stream, it just screen captures the window or the entire screen.

    You can use browser extensions to do that, but it's not something that we can support as an official forum feature.

    weeblord reacted to seon123 in Need help picking PSU for a build   
    They just decided to label it differently, don't worry about it. Either would connect properly.
    You can't generalise by brand. Same way you can't ask if Nvidia GPUs are good or not. A reference GT 710 is not, a FE RTX 3090 is. If you are trying to choose between the G1+ and the RMx, the G1+ is an entry level PSU made for low end hardware, while the RMx is a pretty decent PSU for even pretty high end stuff.
    You can check out actual reviews of them here (the 650W and 750W variants of the G1+ are similar enough).

    weeblord reacted to Mark Kaine in When did pc building become a thing   
    I mean "Lego style self built pcs" are only interesting for a certain target audience, like gamers, "enthusiasts" and maybe certain parts of industry... the rest will get prebuilts and maybe change out some things to fit their specific needs... it's just a lot more convenient and you don't have to think about compatibility and stuff... even from the people around me those who play on pc, basically half of them buys prebuilts, usually Alienware, the Sheldon Cooper force is strong with them...  (they usually also have no idea how a computer works and are also "enthusiastic console gamers"...) 
    I get the mindset tho, they just want a box that just works, and better than consoles so certain prebuilt brands make a lot of sense (if money is of no concern)

    weeblord got a reaction from FNC_RESPAWN in How to get my PC silent?   
    I'd recommend a Noctua or Be Quiet! cooler like the NH-U12S with a modified fan curve rather than the Freezer 34, although I don't know much about that cooler so it may be fine alone. Although a fan curve adjustment would probably help with noise still.

    weeblord reacted to Emily123 in How to build a PC without getting RIPPED OFF! Holiday 2020 Buyers Guide   
    Spending $360 on a SSD and leaving $500-600 on a graphics card doesn't seem like a great idea. Would be better go get a cheaper SSD and put the money towards a better gpu down the line.

    weeblord reacted to Hunter259 in How to build a PC without getting RIPPED OFF! Holiday 2020 Buyers Guide   
    With all of Intel's price slashing, I'm a little surprised you would be a 3700x over the 10700k or even the 10850k. Many Z490 boards are also PCIe 4 compatible so Rocket Lake should be a slot in competitive upgrade. Also don't really think PCIe 4 SSD's are even remotely worth the insane premium for the 2k build.

    weeblord reacted to FakeKGB in BNIB 3070 FE or used ROG Strix OC 2080 Ti?   
    The 2080 Ti is slightly better than the RTX 3070, but choose whichever you'd like.
    They're about equal (I think.)

    weeblord reacted to LogicalDrm in Need help with steam refund policy   
    I doubt they will flag it. I'm pretty sure its mostly automatic, and only if you contest their decision it will get flagged. Like with those games which have major flaws on launch, you get full 2h playtime without actually being able to play and such.

    weeblord reacted to Nayr438 in Need help with steam refund policy   
    If you have played less than 2 hours within 14 Days, steam will usually refund it no questions asked. If you are approaching the 2 hr mark or 14 day period and requesting refunds multiple times a month, then you can be flagged as a potential system abuser. In this case one of 2 things usually happen. Either you are temporarily banned from using the Refund System or you are limited to refunding to your steam wallet. An exception to this rule is steam sales. If you purchase a Game and request a refund within the allotted time period and immediately re-purchase it while it is on sale, they don't count it against you.
    Your first request was denied for falling outside of its allocated refund period, it wont count against you.
    If you immediately re-purchased the second title, it also wont count against you.
    In other words, you are fine to request a refund.

    If it sets off any alarms they'll probably have someone manually review your account, and since you're a real person they'll realize you just are indecisive, unless you have something else sketch on your account.

    Airflow should be more than good. The mesh front intake will allow for a lot of air intake through the front. I don't have thermal numbers, but GamersNexus does have a video

    weeblord got a reaction from ShinRamen in Just purchased a new computer case   
    Huh. Ironic, since it's a mesh front panel. Decent non-RGB fans are easy to come by for cheap, so shouldn't be too big of a concern.
