  1. I don't normally do these amatuer reviews, but I'm pretty happy with my most recent purchase, so I thought i'd share. For the past 4 years, i've been using a Logitech G105 for my office computer keyboard. My only complaint with that board, was a sticking left shift key(even after cleaning), other then that it was a perfectly fine, normal keyboard. About 6 months ago, I stumbled upon some reviews of mechanical keyboards. Initially, I couldn't tell what all the fuss was about, but I decided to get it a try. I ordered the G512 Carbon directly from Logitech on 8/24 and pic
  2. I'm looking to build a DIY racing simulator(seat, wheel, pedals, gear lever). I've already sourced a seat from a Scion FRS, and I'm confident I can build the structure that everything attaches to. My question, what is a realistic budget for the wheel/pedals/gear lever? I don't want some no name junk, nor do I really want to spend big money on this. Does anybody have recommendations for good bang for the buck? Lets give it an arbitrary max budget of $300.
  3. For those of you, like me, that had been fruitlessly entering the newegg shuffle for all these months, have faith, my day finally arrived. I was able to pick up an MSI 3060 bundled with 32gb of OLOy blade memory for *cough* only *cough* $685. Which still feels awfully expensive to me, but at least its not ebay prices. Crazy world we live in.
  4. So I'm in the middle of transitioning from an Intel NUC 8 to a proper rack mounted unit, for what is essentially a NAS box. For the NUC I had a Sabrent 10gbps NIC . To avoid any extra costs, i'd like to use this NIC on my new system which has this montherboard, which does have 10gbps USB-C/USB 3.2 gen 2. The problem is, when I plug in the sabrent nic, to any port, it shows up as a "billboard device". And I have not been able to force windows to install the correct drivers for it. Is this because my motherboard is only usb-c and not thunderbolt? Or is it a software iss
  5. So HTPC into HDMI 2 on my TV, then ARC down to the receiver? I'll give it a try.
  6. Isn't that how a receiver is supposed to work though?
  7. What is MPC-HC? If it's not something that happens by default, I'm probably not using it.
  8. It does seem to get worse over time. I wake the htpc up from sleep with the keyboard. Open Netflix or Disney +, it plays fine for a few minutes before my wife elbows me and says "it's off again" (she is more sensitive to it then I am), then another minute or two go by, and I notice it too. Last thing we tried to watch was Agents of shield on Netflix.
  9. Here's my setup: HTPC(B550 R5-3400G) Xbox one Nintendo switch Dish set top box Denon receiver(I forget the model) All connected via HDMI Everything goes through the receiver and to the TV/Polk audio speakers. Here's my problem: ONLY THE HTPC will get out of sync with the audio/video. It doesn't matter how much I play with the audio delay function on the receiver, it seems to develop a delay after a couple minutes of playback. Since the xbox/switch/dish all work fine, i've deduced that it isn't an issue with th
  10. Well thats both a good thing and a bad thing for me, I guess. Good thing that I can remain hopeful. Bad thing that I have to keep entering.
  11. I'm curious if anybody here can actually say that they've won anything in the newegg shuffle. I've entered almost every day they've had a 3060, and haven't gotten one yet. I wonder if they only have 1 or 2 examples of each item, so chances of winning are incredibly small, but it generates traffic. I'm just getting frustrated with it.
  12. I think that I understand a concept, but i'd like to get some validation from you smart people. Here is my hypothetical system: ASrock X570m Pro4 Ryzen 5 3600 ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 PCIe 4.0 X4 (4x 250gb Samsung 980 pro)(speedy boi data) ASUS GT 710 X1 1x 250gb Samsung 980 pro(OS) USB C 10gbps NIC According to their respective spec sheets, the X570 motherboard should have "up to 36 PCIe lanes", and the 3600 has 16 PCIe lanes. I'd like the M.2 card to use the 16 from the CPU, and the video card and the onboard M.2 to come off
  13. Well, I'm not sure this was the cause of my issue, but i'm sure it didn't help. Fingers and toes crossed that this fixed my issue. I'm 1 day since removing it and no issues so far.
  14. No, it can, I know it can, I just didn't know there was even a difference at the time of purchase. Do you have an example of how to do that? I'd rather not accidentally wipe my drive.
