Bought this recently for ~$150, good quality and very quiet. I was going to get an RMx but the case could only take 150mm long power...

Thanks mate that's really helpful. I had planned to run headless but still finding additional use cases for the build with VMs/dockers

Nice hardware, I am planning a similar truenas build. I was considering an x570 Aorus Elite mobo, is there anything major that made you...

I like my coffee cold as well, but I make a hot coffee when I use my heat sensitive Mario level mug. For this mug I think I would still...

This looks sufficiently overkill for my upcoming Nas/home assistant build, might wait for a non afterpay deal though

I bought the GTZNC version (non b die) around a year ago thinking I would learn some mild overclocking. I set XMP and haven't looked at it...

That's a decent budget build. I was about to point out the mobo doesn't support dual channel but thought I should confirm, turns out Intel...

I have these connected to home assistant through a conbee2 hub. Works well and I get leak alerts instantly through slack/telegram. They...

Don't forget their trade in offer, buy any headset now and get full purchase price off when you trade in to upgrade to the 12k. Takes some...

You can use the hose to take most of the water off. Turn the pressure down so it sheets across the surface and if your car is waxed or...

I ordered a us-8-60w, it's an 8 port switch with 4 Poe, a little overkill but works if you want it managed
10/09/2021 - 14:41
That's about the best you'll find. I ordered mine for $170 through wireless1 but it wasn't in stock at the time. I won't see it til October...

I won an i9-10850k from ESL, I thought the email was a scam until I saw he was the marketing manager. That prize cost me many thousands as...
04/09/2021 - 16:14
That's right, and mine had some pads on the back already. They weren't all directly behind the vram but it was much more than I'd seen in...

Thanks for the reminder to sell my digital download, won it but haven't won a PS5 to use it
23/08/2021 - 16:50
Same, a little ball of foil and a AAA brings it down close to the G Pro wireless for a fraction of the price
21/08/2021 - 20:34
I have the v1 of this card and it is a beast. My card had more thermal pads than the initial batches but I still replaced them all and got...

I instinctively closed the popup when I went to the page, then realised that was the comp. I used an Incognito/InPrivate window and it...

Thanks, cancelled my backorder from the US deal and got this
10/04/2021 - 10:43
No amount of thermal paste would help a Mac Pro lol. Mine is a Metabox with a 9750H and gtx1650
22/01/2021 - 11:44
Yeah I found that info after I was having issues. I only saw it was excellent in reviews so bought some, paid significantly more than $1 so...
21/01/2021 - 22:32
That's excellent, new thermal paste can be a great way to get temps under control, sounds like yours is no longer throttling
21/01/2021 - 22:30
Unfortunately not, would work really well with max temps around 80C, be stable for a few weeks then would degrade until it starts thermal...
21/01/2021 - 20:25
I swapped from kryonaut to mx4 as it kept drying out in my laptop. Apparently it doesn't like high temps. Mx4 doesn't work quite as well...
21/01/2021 - 19:03
I swapped hwmonitor for hwinfo64 on my laptop and saw a huge drop in CPU load (11w average to around 2w), significantly improving runtime....

Got an email to say I won, totally unexpected. Currently building a PC and have an am4 mobo sitting here and 3600 on the way, so looks like...
09/12/2020 - 12:54
Yep, still waiting for a 3600/x/xt deal. Used prices are close to new so no luck there either
