    Amber is the World's First Hybrid Cloud Storage Platform

    Basically it's a yet another attempt at trying to beat owncloud or nextcloud, only this time bundled with some unclear cloud-based identity management features. Hardly first and definitely not last.

    Your 1440p Monitor Could Be Using a 4K Panel

    It might be possible, but eDP scalers with 4K support aren't cheap, and the ones under $60 usually can do no more than 30Hz. 2k scalers are now relatively cheap. Pretty sure that you can't solve this with just a firmware update. Not all scalers are fast enough to handle 4K@60Hz. P.S. Good...

    Show off your homelab!

    Looks like I'm not the only one slacking in our club. We need more nerd stuff! Here's a quick snapshot of my typical Monday: 1) First on the chopping block is some 2nd gen Core laptop (they all look alike to me, but I guess it's Fujitsu). The owner broke a headphone jack and attempted...

    Steam Releases 'External Funds Used' Tool

    Imagine how surprised I was to see $730 in my spendings... 11 years on steam!

    Trade Your Intel Core i7-8086K for a Threadripper 1950X

    It's a dirty publicity campaign. It supposed to not make any sense. Think of it as an act of proudly shitting on your neighbor's porch at 2:00AM.

    Trade Your Intel Core i7-8086K for a Threadripper 1950X

    The real question is: what are they going to do with those 8086Ks?

    AdoredTV at it again - Over an hour long video about Nvidia's business practices.

    AdoredTV was fun for a short time, but when his videos pop-out frequently, you notice a heavy bias towards AMD. Just for fun I watched some of his AMD-related "research" and it starts with something like talking about some "back in a day AMD fuckup" for 2 minutes and slowly gets siderolled into...

    A Walk Through 1stPlayer - A New Kid on the PC Gaming Block

    Well, in a modern world it's not a factor. I already lost count how many times MSI had typos in their product datasheets or even on the front page of their official website.

    A Walk Through 1stPlayer - A New Kid on the PC Gaming Block

    Misaligned markings on keycaps pretty much tell the whole story. Yet another boring company makes more boring C-grade hardware and peripherals. Won't be surprised if I see those PSUs in my workshop next year, stacked right next to exploded Gamemax and Aerocool units.

    Cooler Master Exhibit Their Thermal Electric All-In-One Liquid Cooler

    Well, that's not too bad at all. I thought it was going to be no less than $500 (cause TEC used to be overpriced as hell all the time).

    HP Launches New ProBook x360 440 G1 Laptop

    I guess I should've narrowed down the "good" HP to anything Intel-based. They only got the "fame and glory" because they were the first ones to f%#ck up on AMD FX mobile. Anything built on AMD in those years(2010-2016) was awful, not just HP. Heck, I should probably share some pics of my...

    HP Launches New ProBook x360 440 G1 Laptop

    Not all. Most of their probooks and elitebooks are unkillable (except for a few 1st gen Core and Phenom/Turion Probooks with 215-0752001 IGP onboard, aka Radeon HD4200 series). Even their latest Envy x360 and Pavilion Power series are excellent.

    Cooler Master Exhibit Their Thermal Electric All-In-One Liquid Cooler

    Yep, but at power consumption over 10 times higher than a typical H2O setup of this size.

    Cooler Master Exhibit Their Thermal Electric All-In-One Liquid Cooler

    Sorry, forgot to pay attention to the large rad behind the smaller one(with thermal probe sticking out). If that's the case, it's even more retarded than sticking TEC into the CPU block. It's not like a pair of thin-film thermistors and a tiny microcontroller takes up a lot of space. You can...

    Where are the promised MSI Spectre/Meltdown BIOS updates?

    MSI is the slowest in regards to BIOS updates. I had to wait almost an extra 6 months(comparing to competition or their own Z170 mobos) before they released the KabyLake update for my board. Same with security and bug patching - it's taking wa-a-ay too long. You might wanna check again. A new...
