  1. Possibly, first check the timings of the 1333MHz kit, as well as the DRAM die type. If needed look at the auto detected timings. Test each kit individually, then try both at the same time. If it struggles to boot, then start forcing some of the timings to match that of the loosest timing kit, especially the tertiary timings. Then try both sticks again. After that, experiment with seeing how high you can push the clocks for the 1333 kit. You likely will not get it to 1600 speeds, but you may be able to find some middle ground.
  2. For mix and match DDR4, most of the issues when lowering clock speeds is not achieving stability, comes from tertiary timings, for example, if you mix Samsung B die with a low binned B die from micron, You could end up with your board using the B die tRFC values from the Samsung kit on the Micron kit, which can cause you to continuously fail to boot, even at low clock speeds, due to Samsung B die having significantly lower tRFC timings. Outside of that, at long as the timings are close enough between the kits, you can get away with a lot of mixing and matching, but you may end up h
  3. Mixed can work but it takes a bit of planning and testing. For example, mixing a 3200 kit with a 3400 kit both being CL16-16-16-36. The first test is to see with the old slower sticks, is how far can you overclock while on the XMP timings, and also testing which voltages the DRAM dies can safely handle. For example, if you have 2 3200 and 2 3400 modules but at 1.42V both sets are able to hit DDR4 3600 speeds, then you can mix and match while also getting a small overclock out of them. In cases of a large bin difference, you will be doing a mixtur
  4. Those cables cannot handle tight bends.
  5. Could they test that system with some classic games from the Windows 95 and 98 days. It would be interesting to see how many would take advantage of multiple cores, and how many would be GPU bottlenecked by the RTX 3090. Also, did the server's Bios offer any overclocking options?
  6. Can we get a video revisiting AMD PBO with the +200 option enabled. Most videos focusing on AMD's precision boost overdrive for Ryzen CPUs focused on early and pre-release BIOS. During that time, virtually every review showed it not helping performance. They have since done many updates to it, as well as added new PBO options, but no one seems willing to revisit it even though if it is finally working,, it has the potential to be amazing for Ryzen users since traditional overclocking results in you giving up some single threaded performance for increased multithreading performance,
  7. It is nearly impossible to get rid of the market for scalpers from the consumer demand side, due to the number of people susceptible to bring price gouged. Consider how many people there are who buy overpriced goods from vending machines, or overpriced snacks at a movie theater, or the overpriced soda at pizza shops where they will charge like $3+ for a 2 liter bottle of soda even though the same soda will typically cost $1 for the 2 liter bottle at a grocery store. That ultimately becomes the target market for scalpers. The issue is the scalpers destroy the reputa
  8. They cannot use too much of an initially high price. When MSRP swings wildly, it makes legitimate customers feel cheated. Beyond that, it drives customers away as it causes them to look elsewhere due to sticker shock, or they simply make other purchasing decisions. Suppose Nvidia started charging scalper prices for the 3070, and listed a price of $800-900 for it. How many people will decide that their 1070 is good enough, and that the Ryzen 5900x is looking more enticing, or that an extra 1TB NVMe is more worthy of their holiday spending budget. A customer who wants a p
  9. Back orders are pretty common, especially on the business side. For example, what do you think is happening when a store orders 1000 video cards even though they know their supplier will only ship out probably 100 out of the 1000 they ordered? Most people do not have the time spending hours refreshing and checking stock, especially if it will save no time compared to just placing a back order where tie system will instantly assign it to your order the moment the product is logged into inventory (provided the inventory reaches up to your place in line in terms of orders). Pre-ordering blin
  10. Wanted to also add that other stores are starting to catch onto this. For example, consider the ammo shortage that is being largely caused by antigun politicians that add so much red tape that companies cannot easily expand manufacturing capacity to meet demand, and due to high demand, it becomes easier for scalper bots to clean out inventories. The end result is that instead of having people search for an item and find that it is out of stock and then go elsewhere or to a scalper, they are instead able to place an order even if the item will not ship immediately. In the case of so
  11. Stores can easily stop scalpers from functioning. For example, some companies in the smart home field will have limited stock early on, but what it typically means is that you wait an extra week or 2 for the item, and not waiting months. Those items also never get scalped. The way it is done is by limiting orders to 1 per address and payment method, thus for a scalper to get multiple items, they will have to create tons of payment accounts and set up a bunch of different PO boxes or something., thus extra work. That is a barrier to entry that only impacts people who want to bu
  12. I wish Noctua would still try and make a large version of the NH-D15. For example, make it taller, give it a more asymmetric design to better utilize the available space for both the width and height of common mid sized ATX cases.
  13. For DLP, the rainbow effect can be minimized by running the virtual colorwheel (when using LED, you do not need a physical color wheel), you can cycle the colors at a massively higher rate. Often manufacturers will try to strike a balance between duty cycle, and minimizing or preventing rainbow effect by getting it to a rate where the effect will not be visible during a specific type of eye movement known as a saccade is taking place. A higher cycling rate does use more power though, but some companies managed to get the fast rate and relatively low power usage, e.g., i
  14. I still use an old Lenovo S21e netbook that I purchased for $120 back in 2015. While the specs are bad Intel Celeron N2840 passively cooled but it can maintain its boost speed of 2583MHz indefinitely since it doesn't get hot enough to throttle even under a prime95 load. 2GB DDR3 1333, and a single band 2.4GHz WiFi adapter, though it is in an m.2 slot so it can be upgraded. 32GB storage, after installing windows 10, you are left with around 9.5GB usable (after removing the bloatware from windows such as candy crush and other crap). PS, Ubuntu is far more responsi
  15. To delve more into total cost of ownership, most cloud services become far more expensive than building an NVR. With cloud reliant cameras the subscription fees, especially if you want 24/7 recording, can quickly become very expensive. Furthermore since these are utilitarian items, they are used for years. Think about it, if you are installing security cameras, how long do you think you will need the surveillance (this means after the time period, you will remove the cameras and never need to monitor your home again)? if it is more than 2 years then the cloud solution will end up costing more
