    Cryptocoin Value and Market Trend Discussion

    Thank God I got out the rabbit hole at 50K and went all in for USDC then cash. Sold 80% kept 20 to see what happens. I was told I could get into regular stocks with "as little as" 5 grand but honestly I have no idea how that market works, all I see are graphs and weird number codes I have no...

    Same. At this point I'm thinking the guys calling in sick are just enjoying the sunny days at the beach or chilling at home instead of attending the workplace, not like the managers care to find out if I'm right.

    What are you playing?

    Playing (more like exploring, there's no actual gameplay) the Half-Life 2 alpha maps. Parts of the design are great, features more dark dystopian cyberpunkish elements than the final release where btw except for a single chapter there are no night levels, I find the warm amber and reddish tones...

    What are safe temps for rx580 ?

    80 is within the acceptable margin but a lower temp would be better. Define "heavily overclocked". I've overclocked similar cards and never hit those temps, what case are you using? please tell me it's not an H510.

    Plugging USB into external powered device caused USB to spark and monitor to flicker?

    Is the case grounded? If so nothing should be damaged.

    ASUS is Working on a DDR4 RAM Adapter for DDR5 Motherboards

    What about hybrid transition boards? Remember DDR+DDR2 for Intel's 915. At the time if you were going to get a Prescott core chip but already had a high end config with DDR533 memory but an older CPU spending more to grab some DDR2-533 with worse timings wasn't a great idea, but you could wait...

    i9 12900k temperature problem

    Makes sense since crap auto-OC tools pump a lot of voltage to circumvent the silicon lottery and make all chips overclock the same. Don't use them. Like the rest said, temps are normal considering your cooling. AIOs like that are on par with midrange air coolers.

    Intel RM1 Stock Cooler Tested with Core i5-12400 Reaching 73°C

    The fake plastic fins are the last nail on the coffin for post-1155 intel stock HSF, at that point they shouldn't even include it with the CPU because the customer will have to get a better solution anyway.

    Intel RM1 Stock Cooler Tested with Core i5-12400 Reaching 73°C

    The one included with the 980X was something else, always loved that design, neat performance as well

    At this point they keep releasing these games to wash history and inject propaganda into young brains. I liked the first 3 games and even have them on CD but not the rest.

    automotive coolant for PC watercooling that mixes copper, aluminum, nickel, brass and silicone tubing

    I've used red Zerex (for a toyota truck) before and had no issues, the tubing I used wasn't clear but black and somewhat hard to bend

    I know "it's reddit" and a meme sub but the ratings on a plug always refer to the pins and not the wiring, it's a common mistake people only reading the plug and not the cable when purchasing let's say a cable for a kettle or high end PSU.

    no display with new GPU

    You can use an old monitor with a new-ish graphics card with the right converter (not the same as adapter!) as long as it's not ancient, well, you could as long as you have a DAC and some knowledge but I doubt OP has an IBM 5151 as a display anyway. As for the pads... I really doubt the...
