    I'm not the only one that greatly dislikes (hates) Samsung's Bixby, am I?

    No. Its horrible. Bixby is the worst.

    MSI Oculux NXG251R 240 Hz G-Sync Gaming Monitor

    Might be because you have a VA panel with a better strobe implementation. Both mine and this monitor are TN panels where the colors are extremely 'meh' to begin with, add a black ULMB strobe to that where the brightness and colors wash out by another 30% and you basically don't even want to...

    MSI Oculux NXG251R 240 Hz G-Sync Gaming Monitor

    Less brightness / color vibrancy, lower fluidity, and no frame pacing & more noticeable stutter (compounded by ULMB) = why most people leave ULMB off for gaming. No one is sitting around reading rapidly scrolling text, if that's what you're doing, then ULMB is excellent. Keep in mind, 'motion...

    Temperatures worse on new pc case than on previous no-name with opened side

    so for GFX temps you want negative pressure... so like a noctua A series in exhaust(s more than one if possible) and no intakes... what that will do is force air up and out of your case and pull it through the vented (hopefully empty) PCI slots in the case. that should give you similar temps...

    FSP Hydro PTM 650 W

    I love FSP stuff... my favorite powersupplies - you can hear a mouse fart from across the room at full load with these. I have the 750W version of this - worth every penny.

    Temperatures worse on new pc case than on previous no-name with opened side

    200W is usually total board power, i think 250W total board is max for the big boy cards. The entire card, with the mem chips, vrms, etc can push out 200W of heat (and dump it in your case). Still... 130W is a massive amount of heat. That's roughly the pull of a stock 9900k and those things...

    Temperatures worse on new pc case than on previous no-name with opened side

    i think a shoe box with the top off would cool better than most cases closed, so no real surprise there. Silent cases are usually crap for gaming rigs at full load for this exact reason... they bake the components so they heat up and make more noise than if you just had them breathing normally...

    D15 to AIO??

    True but they consistently cool like a 280mm unit and they're refillable...

    D15 to AIO??

    Any 240mm aio would do the trick... i usually run pull for dust cleaning reasons but they last forever and they are very easy to get super quiet (put the pump on a curve). Most high end systems builders use AIOs for the exact same reason you're switching (easier to ship the system / same...

    New Wolfenstein game.

    Is it bad that those screenshots make me really want a new Bioshock game in that timeframe/period? The wolfenstein engine is unplayable at high FPS since they tie physics to framerate... so I haven't been able to really enjoy any of their titles.

    Which card performs better, the gtx 1080 g1 8gb or the rtx 2060 6gb?

    + 1 for selling your body/bodyparts and upgrading to the 2070 :D Ramen hardware diet for 3 weeks. Then 2070 You, sir, are missing out.

    Which card performs better, the gtx 1080 g1 8gb or the rtx 2060 6gb?

    2060 - runs cooler, has rtx features... ur missing 2gb of ram but otherwise it seems better. Will probably be easier to resell at some point too.

    New Mechanical Keyboard - MX Red or MX Brown

    I agree, o rings will fix red bottom out for sure but the browns still clack at the switch a bit so the keyboard will still rattle quite audibly when you're furiously typing -- putting o-rings on browns makes them feel a bit mushy as well, thus lessening the browniness - o rings and reds are...

    Browns are louder than reds but they do feel nice.

    Alphacool Unveils the Eisbaer Refill Kit

    Yeah the main issue with that fillport is definitely not the lack of a funnel. :D

    Moving cases

    the hardest part is going to be plugging in the case headers into what I assume is going to be an unlabeled OEM motherboard. take a picture/remember which headers your powerbutton is plugged into, otherwise you might get the "press the power button and nothing happens" moment.

    High CPU temp GTA V with new cpu cooler?

    temp looks ok. I ran my 6700K at low 90's for forever it's still in a friend's rig somewhere.

    Noisy silent case - Be Quiet Dark Base 700

    Tune the fan curve in MSI afterburner. See if you can also optimize airflow for your components (i.e. reverse case airflow and have CPU cooler suck cold air in from the back) and make sure the gfx card has cold air hitting it. Airflow optimization + quiet fan curves and you should be 100%...

    Bethesda Bringing Fallout 76, Rage 2, Doom Eternal, and Wolfenstein Games to Steam

    Bethesda's games aren't good enough lately to warrant another launcher. Metro Exodus was right on the line for me where I almost caved. Outer Worlds is a must have, and Cyberpunk 2077 will be a must have - getting OW on Microsoft store (since i already own a bunch of stuff there) but if one of...

    Short lived tech

    It stays cool while the rest of your system burns your house down! The radial gaps ensure that the pesky heat from the processor core never makes it to the metallic fan, and our patented metallic fan base bounces the heat right back to the processor core, where it came from and belongs! Go home...

    The Best Single Player FPS Games of the Last 10-ish Years (post Crysis)

    the far cry games at high FPS are a completely different experience since 3.... 3/Blood Dragon/4/5 - of all the shooting games the guns in far cry are my favorites. Completely over the top and very cool... Blood Dragon is what Duke Nukem should have been lol.
