So I wanted a second keyboard for my setup on the other side of the wall, and I wanted it cheap.
Cheap, but with EVERY feature I wanted. A few macro buttons, volume knob, media controls, and of course, RGB.
Well, I first bought a Corsair K55. I usually have a certain feeling about Corsair...
Would using a power conditioner, a line conditioner, help with overclocking?
To smooth out the bumps, dips, and spikes before it hits the PSU.
Would it give any benefit to performance or overclocking?
Has this been tested?
Finally released in the form of the new Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus. I've been waiting for something E18 for ages now.
Any other models coming out? $200 for 1 TB is pretty expensive, but honestly, not really a big deal, considering it's second gen PCIe 4.0. 7000 MB/s and 6000 MB/s write. But...
I'm building a sweet server machine and I want it to have a GPU for easy GUI maintenance.
It's gotta be a low profile card, which I can find, but even better, it should be 1x physical so I can keep my big PICe slots free for what counts: The 4-port 10 gigabit ethernet card.
So in that case, do...
Well, I just opened my PC and felt my RAM. The one in A1 is warm, and the others are cool.
That means that A1 is always used first for everything, and the others only get used when I have a need to fill them.
Well, not much fills 32GB of RAM, so I wouldn't be surprised if the RAM in...
I'm looking for memory chips that are essentially flawless on the silicon level.
I'm not looking to overclock, nor do I care if the chips themselves are extremely fast.
I need this flawless memory for critical applications that cannot ever have any errors or glitches.
It's fine if it's...
My friend has an ITX motherboard with an NVMe slot where a PCIe slot could be.
So could it be possible to create an adapter that plugs into the NVMe slot and then introduces an x1 PCIe slot?
I'm not saying this does exist or even should exist. But could it exist?
I'm building a router that uses a 4-port 10 gigabit PCIe card, and the specs say it's compatible with 10 gigabit and 1 gigabit speeds.
Does this mean that it won't negotiate to 2.5 gigabit speeds? It is either 1 or 10, but not 2.5?
I'm a total newbie to NICs, so I hope my question is clear enough.
So what's the catch?
AMD is doing pretty darn well, but a lot of people are saying: "They're only being "nice" while they're second. The moment they surpass Intel, or even Nvidia, that's when they go rotten and get greedy."
Will their innovation stop?
Will they stagnate?
Will they start...
Two 1TB SSDs in RAID 0, with one 2TB HDD linking it into RAID 10.
How do I make sure that the speeds don't average out with the HDD?
How do I make sure that data is drawn from the SSD first?
I want the speed of two SSDs in RAID 0, but a backup HDD that can fit the entirety of both of them...
Transparent vacuum sealed double-pane glass case that can withstand blazing fire.
A computer that has a home in a clean-burning gas fireplace, cooled with air-pipes that bring in air from outside.
There's no way this would happen, nor is there a good reason for it.
But hey, what are some other...
I recently ordered a used workstation power supply off a certain auction website.
It's a 1060 watt BEAST from a Lenovo ThinkStation apparently.
What does all this weight mean? I have another 1000 watt PSU, but it's not nearly this heavy.
Is it just really darn stable and powerful?
I love working with wood and acrylic, but I don't want to damage any electronic equipment.
Are there any safety guidelines when it comes to dealing with electrostatic discharge or other cataclysmic events?
I've just screwed motherboard stand-off screws directly into wood. Is there anything I...
And what defines a "flawless" experience?
Visuals? Hand controls? Foot controls? Tactile force-feedback?
What will be the breaking point of when VR becomes better than reality?
What features would you like to see improved, besides visual clarity?
And what features don't exist yet that should...
I'm interested in advanced overclocking that disables some cores for optimal clocking.
Specifically, I want to disable two of six cores on an x5690.
If the cores are positioned like this ::: then I'd wanna shut down the middle two so it's more like : :
Anyone know how they're arranged and...
I'm too young to have known what was good back in the day, so any recommendations?
I've got a BFG FX card and the heatsink is thin and pathetic.
I don't need a monster, but I feel that I ought to replace this.
So I have an R9 Fury X. A good card, sure.
But it can't handle my 4K@60Hz television AND my 1080p monitor at the same time.
It just can't push enough pixels for both, thus only one can be active at a time.
So I'm trying to find that perfect sweet spot between "old and used" and "modern but...
So I'm interested in a cheap home UPS that gives 15, or even 5 minutes of power, and also delivers a clean, smooth current. I dunno if that terminology is correct, but if you're the one who knows about this stuff then you probably know what I mean.
The UPS should also be able to send a signal...
Hey there keyboard nerds, I need some help finding the perfect keyboard for me.
My current keyboard is an ancient Microsoft Sidewinder X4, and it's great, but for sure incredibly aged. The paint is falling off, and the domes are squished and not exactly impressive, considering that they're...
Selecting a motherboard isn't enough. Let's say you're *designing* one instead.
What features do you put in? Don't be worried about going over budget. Even chipsets and cooling solutions can be configured to your ideal.
The components have already been shipped, and now I must simply wait for the glorious day that they arrive.
Hours upon hours of searching has yielded me the Jetway 663AS Ultra Motherboard. A Socket 462 aka Socket A motherboard equipped with the VT82C686B chipset. Yes, the 686B, not...
