  1. Past hour
  2. Wife nagged at me until I replaced the little chair I had with a "real" chair as she put it. Just got it this month.Edit: Hard to tell with the lighting & background,but it's black with red stitching.
  3. Today
  4. IEEE Article Link I found this Q&A article pretty interesting. Curious to see if anything like this ever makes it to the big guys.
  5. NVIDIA Unveils Grace: A High-Performance Arm Server CPU For Use In Big AI Systems More 'convergence' in CPU families ? source
  6. Gamer chairs for the Wife and I are assembled.
  7. Yesterday
  8. ...yeah, RGB seems to be here to stay . Some Ripjaws have the same chips but come w/o RGB, but since I already got these...These RAM kits will hit 4133 on stock 1.35V voltage and timings on Intel Skylake, but I'm quite happy with the Zen3 5950X doing FCLK 1900/DDR4 3800 on tight timings - seems like the best balance between between bandwidth and latency. The Raven project is also not a pure bencher/gamer but will also be drafted for some productivity tasks as well. ...as to general RGB overload, at least I got rid off the standard air RGB / Strix 3090 OC 'display' now...
  9. Don't forget, we are livestreaming these as well on https://www.twitch.tv/extremehw on Sundays at 19:00 EST as well as having aftershows that generally go on for about 1 hour or so.

  11. Many of the better bins do seem to be going on RGB sticks. If they are B-die, you could pump some more voltage into them, and as long as you keep them relatively cool, you might be able to squeeze out a bit more performance if you can run DDR4-4000 with decent timings and 2000MHz fclk.
  12. ...yeah, as stated the RGB memory is really the only 'non-team player' re. disconnect options...however, of the four (binned-by-a-mobo-vendor) DDR4 3866 Samsung-B kits I had for quite some time, three are RGB, and I don't think I want to buy any more DDR4 at this stage, with DDR5 lurking and otherwise having enough Sammy-B DDR4. May be I just slap a RAM cooler on it (even though RAM temps are in the low-to-mid 30s C)
  13. I disable remove all the RGB on everything. Memory - Buy non-RGB sticks GPU - Remove and/or disconnect LED power GPU/CPU blocks - Remove and/or disconnect LEDs Motherboard - Disable all RGB in BIOS Fans - Buy non-LED fans, or remove LEDs from fans If I did want to have some case lighting (hasn't happened yet), then I would just go with LED strips and an independent controller.
  14. Just no way around that problem sometimes. Most of the software that controls the RAM RGB can be set and retains the settings even while not open. I would be less worried about open control programs with a 2950x and 64GB + of RAM than on a 4 core with 16 or less.
  15. My guess is they're combing all these into one section called "Windows tools"
  16. ...I am running into the typical-for-times new-build issue with the Project Raven, and that is the 'included' RGB on mobo, RAM and GPU block. While I can turn most of it off and/or disconnect it, the TridentZ RGB is not a team player with that. There is if course RGB control software included, but I'm old-school and like to have as few low-level apps running as possible (apart from security concerns with those) though some Bios settings can help...I actually don't mind some RGB, as long as it is all static 'electric blue' or purple, but don't want my systems to look like the Vegas strip at nig
  17. Windows Settings is still going to be a thing, so what exactly is this? Change the name and add some additional shortcuts. Even more amusing is the fact that now you have a shortcut to the "Control Panel" located inside the new "Administrative Tools" folder. Maybe this is just an incremental change along the road to actually having all the settings and tools in one place, instead of the split personality that has been going on since Windows 8.
  18. ...dammit, I knew this was going to happen, given all those plastics I peeled of new mobos and GPUs ...
  19. I managed to make some progress and nearly died at the same time. I need to remove this bolt in order to remove the suspension, however it is completely stuck. I'm hoping it's because of the anti-roll bar making it much harder to remove but I may need to cut the bolt out which is going to be a pain, not only because I don't have the tools to do it, but also to find a replacement bolt that's correct. The upper control arm also seems to be rusted completely through which is annoying because it's really hard to find a replacement one and chances are the other side is comp
  20. I wouldn't be surprised if out of those 160 million subscribers, almost all of them are just there for the free games/Fortnite. Their store is still no where near up to the standards of Steam. Even Uplay has a better storefront. If Epic really wants to compete properly against Steam, they should offer something that Steam doesn't. At the moment, EGS is just another digital storefront. Aside from fixing the storefront, offer a subscription service for example. $5/month and you have unlimited access to all games they offer. If 10% of the users pay for that, that's then an extra $80M/
  21. it'll be nice to have things in 1 area instead of having to look all over as updates move them.
  22. If that was apples game plan, they kinda screwed the pooch. I posted my epic library elsewhere in the forums here(150 games at the moment, 1 or 2 were cash purchases rest were free and I haven't even taken ALL the free games)How many PAID games does Apple offer their users? Not games that are already free, but games that would cost a user to purchase? As of 1/2021 Epic had over 160 million subscribers. THAT'S a hefty chunk of money for games if people are taking them."The Epic Games Store's huge growth is fuelled in part by the eye-catching free games it offers on a regular basis. Epic gave aw
  23. Since the point of contention between Apple and Epic is the 30% cut that Apple gets on IAP, this was probably done to prove hosting apps/games on their storefront isn't cheap and justifies what Apple charges.
  24. Source: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/apr/12/airborne-plastic-pollution-spiralling-around-the-globe-study-finds Looks like we will all be made of plastic in a few hundred years....
  25. Source: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-is-getting-a-windows-tools-control-panel-for-power-users/ Seems pretty cool, looking forward to playing with it.
  26. Source: https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/379683/The_Epic_Games_Store_is_haemorrhaging_cash_to_deliver_exclusives_and_free_games.php No surprise here. I was wondering how they were able to afford giving away so much free content.
