  1. https://smile.amazon.com/ZEXMTE-Adapter-Performance-Bridge-Support/dp/B07MTTCC4H/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=usb+to+pci-e+nvme&qid=1603243783&sr=8-8 should be fine, anything cheaper I found (I only looked on Amazon) is SATA only. $17.94 after the 5% coupon. you can use EaseUS, they have a free tool to clone. You will need to resize the partition afterward since the replacement NVME is larger than the drive it's replacing but it's a pretty ezpz process.

  2. Hi all. Thanks to @UltraMegafor the link to here. It's funny, I've been part of the old site for nearly a decade, but I didn't participate regularly because I either wasn't following industry news or upgrading my machine. Now that I'm beginning to focus on these things again, I was spending more time on the old site posting in that damn "We Are Live" thread than actually following the hardware. You know it's bad when you can't even go on a forum to find the content you want, and instead spend more time exasperated at how the new direction of the forum violates every pri

  4. The argument I am making is that HDMI itself is irrelevant and for whatever reason you think that HDCP is somehow involved even with just lossless music. HDCP isn't even audio related, it's an anti piracy measure. High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection. The majority of lossless music is in 24/48 or 24/96 stereo, aka, 2.3mbps or 4.6mbps. S/PDIF TOSLINK is capable of up-to 125mbps, though my AE-9 can "only" output to (and my RX-V375 accept input of) 24/192, or 9.2mbps over this interface. USB can obviously do >400mbps. Bluetooth 5 can do 6m

  5. Hello all, So while to some this may seem mundane, I do like to keep members appraised of our actions to ensure a stable platform. As some will know, we recently moved from a dedicated server environment to a much more scale able cloud based environment which has seen site performance improve greatly. With respects to also maintaining the best performance and security we have been mindful of keeping certain parts of the sites segregated from one another. With the ever growing threat of online attacks (which yes we have learned the hard way before) it is vital that the infrastructu

  7. Thanks again, everyone Actually, given their price (roughly US $4 each), it is. der8auer recently ruined an expensive ROG Strix TRX40-E Gaming motherboard and felt that the main reason that happened was because he took the cpu out of its carrier frame once too often: The carrier frames for such large cpus are a cheap enough part that there's no reason not to have extras on hand. While I do wonder though whether the real reason he dropped the cpu onto the socket had something more to to do with his focus on making the video over the task itsel

  10. Didn't even know about this site until someone (I think it was UltraMega) mentioned it on OCN. Really liking this site! It's been said, but like others here, I just feel like OCN is a shadow of what it used to be as a community and platform. The site runs like garbage to this day with some of the navigation ever since the migration back in what 2015/2016? And I've otherwise felt little reason to engage outside of the HW News section, but even then just seems like a lot of fanboying. Like others, I felt my activity drop drastically over there in the last 4 years. Anyway,

  11. I honestly wouldn't mind a banner ad or two, those aren't so bad. The kind of stuff vertical scope is doing with ads is super annoying, trying to make ads look like forum posts and putting them in the middle of threads and stuff like that. As long as the ads stay simple and not become so intrusive, it's not a big deal to me. I'm gonna sign up for a premium account later when I'm near my computer. Def want to help support all this effort!

  16. Somewhat of a workaround follows for this if you don't mind using a browser extension like Stylish, which allows you to create custom css that can be added to any site. Using (e.g.) Stylish, this: . hides the sidebar on the right. While it's impact is global, you can enable/disable the extension on the fly. If you'd like to know more and/or need help, let me know.

  18. I can confirm that these heatsinks are designed to soak as much heat as possible, that's generally the idea as even prosumers don't run their SSDs in full speed for over 20minutes at a time which is what this type of heatsink should handle even with poor airflow as many M.2 slots are under GPU or some other restricted air applications.

  20. Digital vs analog definitely matters though. You will never get as clean of sound from a pc with a sound card because of the electrical interference, then you have to worry about the wires going from the pc to the receiver being thick enough/shielded from any additional interference. All of that goes away with hdmi, and the only time you have analog is from the receiver to the speakers. Not to mention the dac in a receiver is going to be better than that in a sound card 99% of the time.

  23. So firstly we need to determine what kind of usage your device has. Older PCs/Laptops that already have HDDs. These kinds of PCs can greatly have their performance improved by just adding an SSD as a boot drive, e.g. I have an old laptop from 2007 with top specs from the time, with it's HDD it was pretty unusable, with an SU800 128GB SSD in it, it is a great daily machine for your daily needs and it can still compile some stuff. Generally recommendation here is to go with mid-range SATA drives, something like SU650/SU800, BX500, MX300/MX500, micron 1100/1300, A58/A55. Fresh new build for c

  25. I loved my Windows phone. As far as mobile OSes go, it was the absolute best, IMO. It was fantastic. Of course, the lack of apps and limited phone models killed it. I really lamented that. If they ever return to that space; I look forward to getting a Surface phone because I would definitely get one.

  27. I had the Corsair K95 Platinum but changed to the Logitech 512 Carbon Linear TBH I wasn't a fan of the Corsair software and the keyboard did a few quirky things while gaming Also not a fan of the light bleed style lighting I have the Logitech Pro Wireless mouse (77gms) so I only need load LGS when changing one of the on-board profiles for the keyboard or mouse Logitech Gaming Software has to be the easiest software to use Picture looks a little washed out. Looks much nicer in reality And yes, those are crumbs along the bottom

  40. Thanks E Got an update about the refund for the CPU: it took some doing because of how difficult it is to contact live bodies at eBay Customer Support these days, but they did approve a full refund for the purchase. I received emails to that effect from both eBay and Paypal yesterday; and the refund should show up in my bank "toys" account in a few days. Thought you guys might like to know that.

  41. ROTFL, was reading that PS was in talks with Bethesda about a couple of game exclusives before the microsoft purchase.If they did conclude them I had this conversation pop up in my mind. "PS: We have a problem with the game,it needs a patch to fix it so the players can reach lvl 43 on some consoles/situations. Bethesda: Umm,Did U not get the memo? Only if an issue is effecting Microsoft systems does it rate a hotfix.ALL other patches get released on Patch tuesday which was yesterday.So your players will have to wait until next month for the release."

  43. Only benefit I can see is a larger heat soak, so it would take longer to fully heat up giving the drive a little longer to run at full speeds before thermal throttling, and its design is more friendly to a little bit of case airflow inline with the heatsink lengthways. As most M.2 SSD's installed in desktops are front to back, the air from a potential front intake or rear exhaust fan would create a slight airflow in that direction already.

  44. Shoot. My Bad. I'm sorry. Sony A8F (65) - TV/Monitor in Family room. Mirage M-7si (They are old - I bought them in like '95 ) They still sound good, but need room to breathe. They look like the obelisk in 2001. I haven't really bought any HiFi gear in a while so yeah, my stuff is old. And it's more likely that if anything is missing, I missed it not you... In the "retired" column: me.
