    How do coders stay healthy? Carpal Tunnel, sedentary, etc. What are some common best practices?

    +1 on the chair. Also, a good keyboard is fundamental when coding.

    Picked up a Rift S yesterday

    Yea, the Rift S is great. It's a big improvement over the Vive as well. Oculus Connect 6 starts today.

    Best backup software for a Server Essentials 2016 machine??

    Yea, I can't stress this enough to the OP. Backup testing is a must.

    Best backup software for a Server Essentials 2016 machine??

    Does Veeam have a free option for companies? I don't know if this guy needs this for a company. I'm just curious. @OP - I like Backup Exec as well, but I haven't used it in years.

    Best backup software for a Server Essentials 2016 machine??

    Yea, I would just install "windows server backup". Go to Manage/Add Roles and Features then added the windows server backup feature. Then just connect a USB drive and add it as a backup media and then create a full/barebones backup schedule. Remember whatever USB drive you use, you won't be able...

    I use Ubuntu daily. I did install Mint a few weeks ago to play around. I have puppy on a few older boxes.

    Picked up a Rift S yesterday

    Yes, for 650 I would pick the HP Reverb over it any day, but Samsung has been offering the Odyssey+ for $299-$350 USD and if you can catch it at that price it's a great deal. Now, I wouldn't get the Reverb if I had anything less than a 2080 ti.

    Picked up a Rift S yesterday

    Nice, the Samsung Odyssey+ is a great choice. The only thing holding it back is the controllers, but if you can catch it on sale for $299 it's a great hmd.

    Picked up a Rift S yesterday

    Yea, beat saber works great with it, but I still prefer the Vive in Beat Saber over the Rift S. I just need to adjust the way I play Beat Saber. In the Vive I could let blocks pass my head and still get them, but not possible with the Rift S. I wouldn't keep the Vive over the Rift S if I didn't...

    Virtual Reality Club

    Clubhouses never die! lol but they do get forgotten... This question may get more traction over in the VR/AR Section. I haven't had any experience with the HDK2, but I did want one because of the modular design. I don't know how big the IPD adjustment is for the HDK2, but that's what it sounds...

    The costs of Intel gaming vs AMD gaming, who wins? Actually Intel this round, cheaper and faster.

    Everyone lets refrain from name-calling. If you can't get your point across without name-calling then move along.

    Picked up a Rift S yesterday

    Yea, I'm still in the window to take it back. I like the Rift S and I think it's amazing but I want wireless as well. I may end up taking it back this week to wait on the Quest to restock. I still like my Vive and while the visuals aren't as good, I can deal with it until I can get an Index. I...

    Picked up a Rift S yesterday

    So, I picked up a Rift S yesterday and I have to say the upgraded visuals are great. I was worried about the tracking coming from a Vive, but I have to say the tracking is really good. It's not as good as the Vive, but it's much better than I thought it was going to be. I'm being super picky...

    What are you playing?

    I don't know the last hour or so felt like they just added it to make the game longer. It really didn't have any kind of gameplay other than pushing the key to go forward. Plus, making your change your filter every few seconds. I still don't get that at all. Of course, they put filters...

    What are you playing?

    I just finished Metro Exodus and while the graphics are great on my rtx card, the story is my least favorite of the three... The story was good up until the last part/chapter. I think I'm going to play Prey next or Titanfall 2. Oh and I'm also playing Trover saves the Universe on my Vive.

    Can't wait

    Yep! One has pins and the other one doesn't... lol Jokes aside, this was my biggest concern when I bought the Ryzen chip and so far it's been a nice bump over my i7 2600k. I've noticed far fewer frame drops in gaming on a pancake monitor and in VR (HTC Vive).

    Yea, the storm scout has a fan at the top of the case. So, 2x120mm in front intake 120 side intake, 120 back exhaust and 140 top exhaust. Plus, the PSU is on the bottom so it doesn't exhaust into the case.

    Can't wait

    Yea, I was impressed with the oem cooler. I did replace the TIM just for good measure. When my AIO watercooler crapped out on my 2600k I replaced it with it's oem which has a copper core. I still was able to overclock it to 4ghz using the oem cooler. The only thing I don't like about the Intel...

    Can't wait

    Honestly, I haven't really been paying attention. lol I monitored it after install, but haven't looked since. It was really low. I'll check it out later when I get home. Yea, I'm using the stock cooler in my Storm scout. The only issue I ran into was having to enable visualization (SVM/AMD-V) in...

    Can't wait

    I just upgraded my i7 2600 to an R5 2600 and it's been great. I'm currently running my ram at 3000, but I've not touched the CPU. I'll add an aio watercooler later and overclock it.

    Ryzen Owners Zen Garden

    So, I haven't overclocked the CPU yet. I'm using the stock cooler atm, but I did use the 3000mhz xmp profile for my Corsair memory and it's been rock solid. Of course, watching the ram it moves 2994-3000, but I'm impressed so far. I like this Aorus board and for the price, I couldn't beat it at...
