  1. do you need a better cooler or just toss a $10 case fan in for airflow? https://www.amazon.com/uphere-3-Pack-Computer-120mm-Cooling/dp/B072LDYKQ6/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=120mm+fan&qid=1626550913&sr=8-4 this is a 3-pack of fans for $13 https://www.amazon.com/aigo-Cooling-Heatpipes-Radiator-Cooler/dp/B08MZX9311/ref=sr_1_24?dchild=1&keywords=am4+cooler&qid=1626550998&refinements=p_36%3A1253503011&rnid=386442011&s=electronics&sr=1-24 $25 cpu cooler which would be way overkill but the airflow would help the case too

  4. Depending on your budget 3 switches with 4 ports should work well https://www.amazon.ca/NETGEAR-5-Port-Gigabit-Ethernet-Unmanaged/dp/B07S98YLHM/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=gigabit+switch+5+port&qid=1625269494&sprefix=gigabit+switch&sr=8-4 These would do well, run 3 lines from the router to each switch and devices from there. Since you are not likely to saturate a gigabit connection with anything except between the towers during large file transfers, you wouldn't have problems using multiple devices at once. 3 of those+cables will probably run in the $15
  5. unfortunately no. That switch is a 10/100 so you would be limited to "100megabit" or 12.5 megabytes/s per device. The best term to search for is "gigabit switch" or "10/100/1000 switch" couple questions, Do each of the devices have ethernet connections? Do you require internet on your TVs if you have an apple TV and consoles? Are you planning on running multiple lines through your walls to each device back to the switch or are the devices grouped together? (ie TV, Nintendo, apple TV, and Xbox all attached to the one TV) if they are grouped together you can have
  6. I think they mean "Style" as in video content or targeted to the audience playing the game based on the demographic or collected data on the individual. ie young players getting mountain dew ads vs older players getting car ads with the same 30-60sec video length and message/companies who advertise on traditional TV. but that's a guess based on the wording and current "tv ads"
  7. Summary Daily Telegraph has been investigating labour rights in Taiwan's semiconductor industry. Following Covid-19 outbreaks in factories, management are reported to be bending labour practices and are being accused of discrimination against the migrant south-east Asian workers in Taiwan's factories. According to one of the discovered internal memos employees are allowed outside for 90min per day and employees must suspend going out with non-Compeq friends. Labour brokers (commonly found in countries similar to Taiwan in regards to manufacturin
  8. Break down those statements, "open to" not requesting, and "every other episode" so once per 40min period and only if it directly reduces the amount they pay for a service, not gave them in game skins worth nothing "would consider paying less" (paraphrasing) in exchange for ads. Nothing about paying the same or getting nothing of value from advertisements. People have issues with ads, it's very strange for anyone to go on YouTube to watch the Pre-roll and then click over to something else, those people need counselling to get them back to reality.
  9. I don't know what the perks will be but the ads are likely what you said, hopefully it is cosmetic and players can turn them off but we all know that's not going to happen.
  10. these answers prove you are part of the problem with capitalism, the argument "consumers have the freedom to make the choice not to buy from blah blah blah" is predicated on the consumer being INFORMED of their other options. Consumers don't have the freedom to choose which ads they see, or even the size of the companies they are forced to see in the ads. you pay hundreds of dollars advertising your company, how many of your ads compared to the number of ads from Disney+ appear on Google searches? is it a "free" market when small businesses who are paying for ads get 0.0000001% of the ads?
  11. this is what was listed in the articles and Simulmedia's website hasn't posted which companies or titles they will be partnering with.
  12. absolutely, I'm going to sound old but back when TV was new the news had no ads at all, no sponsorships, no paid content. 23hours per day ads could be running on entertainment but even that was minimal and not created by psychologists to manipulate. They were demonstrations, product showcases, and service notices from local or national companies. Now ads are designed solely to manipulate the vulnerable. Consider the difference between a YouTube sponsorship vs a pre-roll ad on LMG, one shows off a product and it's features, the latter is typically an earworm or seizure inducing "buy
  13. I'd go back to the 3200mhz 16-18-18 normally you can run these kits at 3600mhz anyway and you'll have tighter timings which ryzen loves. If you are looking at 1650 for >$400 you are better off with a used 1070ti or 1080 if you can get one for $400 https://www.ebay.com/itm/124792066550?epid=12028442857&hash=item1d0e2fd1f6:g:A8cAAOSwwFxg25QT https://www.ebay.com/itm/255035512518?hash=item3b614d16c6:g:JNQAAOSwj99g3Ifg https://www.ebay.com/itm/324698847967?hash=item4b998f3adf%3Ag%3ArLEAAOSw3ktg3g-r&LH_BO=1 PSU is more than enough to run these cards
  14. pretty sure their character artists, composers and directors probably think so.
  15. I went into who's decision this was, also ad companies hunt for media to show ads on, not the other way around. Maybe if it was a small indie company but EA isn't one to hunt for other companies to take $ from something they can advertise on themselves. This was a "we're going to pay you X million dollars to include our ads" not "could you guys advertise in our madden games?" trying to control how people enjoy their life is exactly what these companies are doing, directing the viewer to specific products, services, even news feeds are manipulated through advertising groups t
