As far as I know, this was caused by a bad batch of rotary encoders. Newer batches allegedly don't suffer from the issue. If yours is out...

How so? I've got one and other than the somewhat odd shape, I really like it.

The HDD manufacturers had the more sensible position, though. Kilogram, kilometre, kilopascal, kilonewton, kilovolt etc are all 10^3. It...

To be fair on the manufacturer, they are using the correct definition of gigabyte and terabyte when they rate drive capacity (powers of...

Maybe, but if you have an Android phone, Google already has an internet-connected microphone glued to you for most of the day, anyway. I'm...

At least when comparing Macrium Reflect to the Windows tool, the Macrium backups are a lot smaller (it intelligently ignores junk like temp...

Keep in mind that some motherboards won't boot from the PCI slots, particularly older ones. You can still use it as a program or data...

Because this thing takes 4 18650 batteries, he could have had a few hundred lumens (similar to a low wattage ceiling light) for many hours....

Given the fact you stay pretty shallow, you might not need a proper dive light. Something like the Olight S2 might work (rated to 2m...

While this is true, it's possible for some chargers to not detect that the battery is full when charging slowly, as the delta-v charge...

This car isn't really targeted at people earning less than six figures. It'd be possible to do it, but probably a very poor decision.

I know Gigabyte had a version of this card designed for miners (no backplate and a tweaked BIOS), and they ended up with a bunch of...

You'll have to run it all at the speed of the slower RAM. It may overclock to 3200MHz, but more likely than not you'll have to run it all...

I'd seriously consider this option. For easiest setup, grab one of the bundles that includes a case, power supply, compatible controllers,...

To be honest, I have the 8GB RX580 and rarely see the VRAM usage go above 4GB. The card tends to choke from a processing speed standpoint...

I mean, even the top of the line Samsung drives can fail. No matter what type or brand of drive you're using, it's stupid to not back up...

Power supplies failing can put big voltage spikes on the power rails. It won't always happen, but power supplies can DEFINITELY blow other...

It'll be the same deal as with Steam. You keep the games forever, IF you redeem them in the two-week period. Sometimes games are free to...

Ethernet over power is good, but once you add that to a wifi card (for phone tethering when the ADSL is rubbish), you don't really save...

I am upstairs above the router in a rental. No place to run a cable, can't punch holes in the wall, and 2.4 GHz is crazy congested...

Dual band WiFi cards are actually pretty costly. If you just want 2.4 GHz it's much cheaper.
04/12/2018 - 12:25
What sort of temps? I'm tempted to over clock, but at the same time it's still a very capable chip at stock speeds and meets all of my...

You should be able to hit 4.0-4.1 with a decent cooler
30/11/2018 - 17:48
Fair enough. If you have a way to fill the drive, then it's definitely the better value.
29/11/2018 - 22:45
Get 240 or 500 gig. They're the sweet spot for usability and affordability. Much larger is only worth buying now if you know you will use...

It's a standard ATX PSU. Width, height, screw locations, cable connectors etc are all standardised and will fit. The only thing that varies...
25/11/2018 - 01:22
Depends what is in your Techfast. Brand name PSU with good reviews, 450W or more? I wouldn't bother. No-name PSU of unknown quality? I'd...

I went with Corsair LPX 3000 CL15. No clue what die it is (probably Hynix), works perfectly at 2933 MHz using default XMP profile on my...
