Since the left analog stick on my DS4 is drifting now after 6 years of abuse use, it's time to replace it.



Grabbed a DualSense controller for about $50.

Took a bit of time to get it set up with DS4Windows, but it seems to work fine now.

Hopefully, it doesn't immediately have issues with drift. I only really use a controller for emulation and certain games that work better with one.

I can't use controllers with sticks at the wrong position.....

Why do you need DS4 Windows? I have a dual sense and works great with Steam natively. A lot of new games have the option to select correct controller prompts in game and a lot of older games have mods to show correct prompts.

Exactly, and that's why I got this over an Xbox controller.

For a couple of reasons. I despise DRM, so I get a lot of games on GOG and I don't like having Steam running. I also use motion controls in emulators (does Steam support that?).

I don't know, I believe gyro can be configured but I absolutely despise it :)

Nice controller though isn't it? I've been impressed with some of the games that support the haptic feedback and adaptive trigger features. I used to be a diehard 360 controller fan but I can't go back to it now, it felt way too chunky when I recently tried it again.

As I'm not yet ready for AM5/Raptor Lake/DDR5 pricing, I picked up a B550 board and an RX 6800 XT as an upgrade to my Ryzen 5 3600 system. Not sure whether to do the "Big Upgrade" (with acknowledgements to Hardware Unboxed) with a 5800X3D or simply get the 5600 (non-X). Suggestions appreciated.

Just tried out adaptive triggers using an app called DualSenseX. It's interesting, but that software is clunky and is missing features that DS4Windows has. Plus, the developer abandoned the GitHub version in favor of a Steam release.

Hopefully, full adaptive trigger support will be added to DS4Windows. Apparently, it has some sort of preliminary support for it, but I can't find any settings.

Made a few over the black Friday sales, waiting on most of them to arrive now.
  • Trifecta Engine/Trans tune and OBD flash cable for both of my GM vehicles - treat the petrol head in me
  • WD Black SN850X 2TB - games drive fully direct storage ready, final chefs kiss to my AM4 system.
  • Kingston NV2 1TB - primary and game drive for a build for my son
  • 12v 30Ah Lifepo4 battery -power a camping fridge and charge other devices while camping and adventuring in upcoming holidays
  • Jonsbo M.2 heatsink - for the NV2
  • Orico M.2 USB enclosure w/10Gbps interface - gonna be awesome to have a wildly fast external storage option
I'll probably check back in with photo's / impressions of a few as they trickle in.

These things are great.

I have a regular 5Gbps one with a 1TB SanDisk NVMe drive in it (general storage and Ventoy), and a 10Gbps one with my old 500GB 970 EVO in it (Windows to Go).

EDIT: Whoops, turns out both of the ones I have are 10Gbps. Guess I'm too lazy to check something literally right in front of me.

That's a great concept, I'm considering putting windows on a fast but easily removable drive for my son's PC, so I can easily control when he can use it.

The Caselabs wait is almost over, but it's still too long..............last minute, just saw that there was a black friday code for the v1.1 ITX Openbenchtable so I picked one up. Third time's the charm? (Dimastech bench bad QC, Core P3 too honking big)

openbenchtable.png


Also need to pick up a white Thermalright PA120 in the near future before they're gone for good, since the Impact can't take a FC140. I like how the PA120 has the same style cover plate as the FC140 - PA120 SE and PS120 look naked and cheap by comparison

Would there be any way to recover the data at all or is the drive completely worthless/dead type situation Mussles?? I'm really sorry to hear you've lost the data :(
This was 8 years ago, very little could be recovered except photos we'd posted online or SMS'd to family at that point

Short version is the phone the photos were on (ex-wifes best friend) were backed up onto that photos drive, then she left her phone on the roof of her car and it got stolen.
Began copying them from the backup drive onto whatever my main PC's C: drive was back then for early cloud storage (I had 5/1 internet then) and ex-wife wanted it on her phone, sat it on the drive as if file copies worked by osmosis

grr clunk dead drive, maybe 1 file in 10 could be recovered

Well this is wildly off topic, but there were a bunch of friends over at some others friends place after their daughter was born. After dinner and the gawking at the baby we just sat around talking, and the new mother asks "So, would you like to see the video?" and I said "ABSOLUTELY NOT" but everyone else said "Oh yes that would be lovely" and so we did watch it. It wasn't exactly shot from front row so to speak, but still one of the more surreal moments in my life.
It matters a lot to some people since 1-2 generations ago, home births were a lot more common in rural areas


My grandma had 7 kids and 15+ grandkids (I've lost track, tbh) and was there for most of those births, so a video would make sense for her to see - angled away from the baby factory, at least

not exactly a purchase but my 5800X3D deteriorated beyond functional and died last week.
got my replacement today.View attachment 271637

Howd you break it, anyway?

MSI have got in trouble for lying about voltages in the past and misreporting them, i wonder if something with kombostrike wasnt undervolting as much as it claimed

Personally I would go for 5700X for various reasons (I'm at work, can't go into details), and it's part of my upgrade plan. 5600 non-X is also a great choice if you're satisfied with 6 cores.

GTX Titan X with green gills cost me about the same as a Ryzen 5600. You can tell from the build quality that these cards used to be high-end stuff. Really cool!

Nice. In it's day that Titan X was the high end Maxwell and offered very good performance for 4K. If you get a chance I would like to see how it performs an some of today's games.

I splashed out on a new TV during the sales. It was one of the chepeast 50" models on sale for some reason, yet has 120 Hz HDMI 2.1 ports and panel support.
The backlight local dimming is pants and LG's remote is taking some getting used to, but overall it was a decent purchase, especially for the price I paid. Still waiting for something to put it on...
Oh, also my first 4K TV.

I don't have many games but I can compare it against some results I got on my GTX 1060 6GB. The Quadro trades blows with it which shows just how much more powerful Pascal is (possibly with the added help of better driver support). Generally running at 1080p very high settings.

GTX 1060 6GB:
Average framerate : 85.5 FPS
Minimum framerate : 69.4 FPS
Maximum framerate : 90.1 FPS
1% low framerate : 68.3 FPS
0.1% low framerate : 65.0 FPS

Quadro M6000:
Average framerate : 81.8 FPS
Minimum framerate : 64.4 FPS
Maximum framerate : 88.9 FPS
1% low framerate : 62.6 FPS
0.1% low framerate : 57.4 FPS

GTX 1060 6GB:
Average framerate : 132.7 FPS
Minimum framerate : 110.3 FPS
Maximum framerate : 147.7 FPS
1% low framerate : 82.4 FPS
0.1% low framerate : 38.7 FPS

QUADRO M6000:
Average framerate : 151.9 FPS
Minimum framerate : 119.3 FPS
Maximum framerate : 171.5 FPS
1% low framerate : 119.9 FPS
0.1% low framerate : 5.2 FPS

GTX 1060 6GB:
Average framerate : 129.9 FPS
Minimum framerate : 109.3 FPS
Maximum framerate : 147.3 FPS
1% low framerate : 93.7 FPS
0.1% low framerate : 84.2 FPS

QUADRO M6000:
Average framerate : 137.0 FPS
Minimum framerate : 109.5 FPS
Maximum framerate : 165.6 FPS
1% low framerate : 100.5 FPS
0.1% low framerate : 88.1 FPS

I hope you have earplugs. I had the 1080ti in blower style, 1st think I did was change that cooler design.

Yeah up to 50% fan speed it's pretty civilized, but beyond that is unhinged jet engine territory. Even if overclocking were unlocked on the Quadro, I don't think I'd want to push the GPU core because I'm already in the 90C temperature range and I'd need to start seriously ramping the fan up past that 50%.

take care. this monitor installs bloatware on your PC including two software devices in your device manager.
even after disabling them by hand and uninstalling the software it just comes back over and over again... (Alienware command center and alienware FX Smartinstaller)

I think it depends on the board and BIOS version. My board sets my CPU at 1.28 Volts max. I know other 5000 chips like to run at 1.4 or 1.5 so boards may be guilty of pushing more voltage than reported. There is also the fact that the pandemic has made QC a thing of the past as well though.
Agree. My R5 3600 got 1.47V by default from my X570M motherboard while it can do all core 4.2Ghz at just a bit over 1.1V, while my R5 5600 got a default of over 1.25V for stock clocks while I can run Aida64 FPU on it fine with it set to 1.075V all core 4.6Ghz.

Finally got my stuff I ordered last week.
I've decided to buy a new case after 4 and half years, as much as I liked the look/design of my In Win 101c it was a bit of a gimmicky case and also a dust magnet + wasn't a fan of the airflow design either.
So I got myself a Be quiet! Pure Base 500 FX, it wasn't cheap for sure but hopefully this will last me a long time. 'cost me twice as much as my 101c in 2018 but ofc everything is expensive nowadays..'

Also bought a new mouse+keyboard pad cause I've accidentally damaged my 6+ years old Skyrim pad recently + it was about time to retire it anyway. :laugh: 'I will put some of my weight plates on it overnight to flatten it properly'
2x Arctic P12 PWM/PST fans to fill the top 2 mounts in the case and then control everything with the built in fan hub. This wasn't necessary with the kind of hardware I'm running but leaving fan mounts empty kinda bothers me for some reason and these fans were cheap and decent enough for the job.

Budget Xiaomi Basic 2S Earbuds for my phone use, so far I/my family had no issues with Xiaomi's budget offerings and this will do just fine for my casual use case like watcing videos on YT maybe some series.

Thats about it, I guess I can treat this as my early xmax present for myself. 'Alright I'm off to build this thing:)'

The backlight local dimming is pants
You should be able to disable that "feature".

That's not the monitor, that's Windows automatic driver updates installing what microsoft thinks you need. Turn that crap off and you won't have to worry about it.

How? It could only do it if it had USB cable connected to your PC, like some HP printers used to do.
