    Coax can carry more bandwidth than that and CAT5e sure as hell can. I've never seen a house wired with older standards than that and still have actual network jacks.

    I used to run insane amounts of storage relative to what most machines would have at a given time. I have a fast internet connection and have had Gigabit internet for years. At present, I run about 3TB of SSD storage and just delete games when...

    The 11900K doesn't use enough power to need the second 8 pin cable or 4 pin depending on the motherboard. Having a 9 year old PSU could indeed be a problem though. You can also run HWInfo64 and see how much power everything is pulling. I believe...
  • D
    Do make sure you buy the right cables for your PSU as the pinout can vary between brands/models

    Well, they don't necessarily do anything more for you overclocking wise given that most chips now a days don't really gain much from it. However, nicer boards have 10GbE LAN, nicer audio, etc. that some of us like. Higher end boards are more...

    This is no different than the law makers making laws about guns without knowing anything about guns.

    I like nice things? A Ferrari is overpriced compared to a Mustang GT but there is no contest when it comes to figuring out which one is nicer. That being said, I also review these things for a living. I'm fully aware of how these boards differ...

    Now that I have a 12900K, I'm eyeing the GIGABYTE Z690 Aorus Waterforce Xtreme and the ASUS Maximus Z690 Extreme Glacial. I will probably go with one of the non-waterblocked versions, but those are tempting. We'll see though.

    Well, casting an older actor to play Vicious makes sense in light of the fact that Spike is being played by an older actor. Now, I would argue that they should have cast someone in their early 30's at the oldest. In that regard, it's a fair...

    It's almost as if the director tells the actor to ham it up with his best stereotypical 1990's bad guy impression. He sounds like he's trying to copy Eric Roberts as the Master in the 1990's Doctor Who movie or Terry Silver in Karate Kid III.

    I don't think it's entirely the actor's fault. For one thing, I'm not a casting director so I couldn't tell you. However, the line delivery, the dialog itself, and almost everything about his scenes are awful. It's the same with Julia.
  • D
    Any scenes with Vicious and or Julia are pure cringe.

    The Division 1/2 have issues beyond just being third person. But the reason why you see so many third person games these days is it helps sell cosmetics. When you can see your character, you get more invested the way it looks.

    I've played this game quite a bit. (74 hours as of right now) The problem is, there isn't a whole lot to do in it. It needs more content badly. The basic gameplay is fun, but you can collect all the rewards and see all there is to see in a short...

    Yes, but neither are generally necessary.

    I bet you're fun in real life.

    DDU works, although I've not had to eradicate NVIDIA or AMD drivers to deal with problems in YEARS.

    I just ordered the "free" waterblock adapter for the EK Quantum waterblocks. Its suppose to ship on December 3rd.

    Dude you dropped a grand on that mobo, RMA it if it has a problem.

    You did change something. Environment variables. Humidity and temperature do factor in to these things. However, its difficult to test for when the destinations are 100's of miles (or more) apart. That said, I'd make sure that your power is good...
