  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. How about a quick trip to London ? (4K png converted to jpg...best viewing with 'open in new tab') Leaving Haethrow...check out that puny A380 compared to my bird... Order ! Order !! ORDER !!! ...so that's how that bridge looks like from the bottom... ...time to visit the O2... ...time for a night flight back...switched to s.th. a bit faster

  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. I have multiple AMD gpu's and drivers haven't been an issue for me. Last nvidia gpu i had was a 1080ti and outside of nvidia surround it seemed o.k. driver wise. The issue for me with Nvidia and AMD drivers, was AMD has a really decent software side of drivers. I like the UI panels for settings and wattman, power tuning, overlay stats like MSI AB etc.. Nvidia drivers seemed dated, basic and lacked many features.... Really though people are going to say different things. Drivers for me aren't high on the list after using both and not having much issues...

  8. You might have already covered that but have you figured out what GPU(s) to use, or do you plan to mount a temporary one until AMD, NV (& Intel Xe?) spring their latest workstation/prosumer offerings ? BTW, AMD 6800 looks very good ...and AMD 6900 might be mega...

  9. Exactly this^^^ Not the quality of the cables. It's analog vs digital to the receiver. The sound quality is good using the rca cables, but the hdmi audio sounded a little bit cleaner.

  10. 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.

  13. Ah, so it's a BS standards issue, not a real technical reason. That answers that. HDMI should have an audio only standard then. I don't want to run my monitor through a receiver and won't. I'll stick with my analog.

  14. This site is not for political discussion. Just focus on the twitch part, no one cares if you like her or hate her. My only interest with this new was seeing how well her stream did. Also, since you didn't watch the steam your commentary that suggest a level of familiarity with the event that you clearly don't have makes it obvious you just came here to spout off to yourself about nothing. I can assure you no one here cares what you think of AOC or anything else political, so just don't go there. Trolls are people who make comments simply to annoy rather than move the

  16. I also second the use of EaseUS for cloning, simple & fast. I used EaseUS for a good while for cloning, imaging and partition management. Cannot fault them yet.

  17. Even with 1080 max/ultra, anything below a GTX 1660 is probably going to be a bit frustrating in MS FS 2020...here's a relative comparison of GPUs in RDR2 (Guru3D) and MS FS 2020 (HardwareUnboxed) in 1080p max/ultra, providing some generalized 'guide posts'. ...Worth keeping in mind though that for a sim like MS FS 2020 (rather than a 'fps game'), slightly lower average fps are acceptable, as long as it is at least 24 fps - 30 fps ....and here is a quick 'sweet revenge' screenie I took earlier...flying underneath the same bridge I got stuck on earlier (in rush hour, i

  18. Yeah, I've been around analog and digital cameras and both black&white and color darkrooms for a long time now, since the early '70s, and have picked up a lot of tricks over the years. As for whether the bench has powered up yet, Initial tests on the X299 bench in the rear have been completed on air and I'll be getting it ready for water in conjunction with the SR-3/3647 and Z490 builds (which I still need to test on air). I hope to have all the water-free testing done by sometime next week so that I can move into water and put the "Muffler Bearings" control panel through its

  22. CDPR puts out some great work,AND they give great value/support for a game! When I got TW3 it was free with a hardware purchase and was fulfilled through GoG. After the Game went GoTY, GoG & CDPR automatically gave everyone that edition also if we'd already purchased the season pass. Both companies take care of their customers! lol, GoG even had a sale @ the time of my original purchase that allowed me to get the season pass,along with The Witcher Enhanced Edition Directors cut,and The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition for under $50.00 total.

  24. Anyone want to post their maximum game and benchmark stable overclocks for their FE cards? My 3090FE seems to be +90 / +600, which seems to pass Valley/Heaven/Battlefield 5 and whatever games. Warzone is very annoying however, seems to accept that along with videomemoryscale=0.5. (remember core clocks change in 15mv offsets, so +90 and +100 should be the same value)

  25. You won't regret it...other than may be re. your monthly electricity bill ...It is one of the trickiest apps I have ever set up (including when compared to HWBot quad-SLI), given that all your system components have to be tuned to work in unison for best results w/ MS FS 2020. But once you have it set up for the sweet-spot, especially on a large 4K monitor, it is breathtaking in many ways...MS FS 2020 is educational, skill-requiring / challenging and great fun all at once, depending what flights / planes you choose... Be that in a 747 banking in over a metro area...

  26. You've got some work to do over here, but 1 billion overall difference is a lot! I don't see myself closing that gap anytime soon. Catching up takes a lot of time. That's why I chose for a head start for EHW I have some plans, if the 3090 performs good enough to justify an upgrade with that price tag I'll get one of them (if in stock somewhere), or some future 3080 "super". There is also a 2080 super that should return to me soon (rma) to replace the 5700xt's (way more ppd and less power). It will take some time though, so you can close the gap a bit
