My Awards

  1. high 90s for the next week+ and my A/C decided to crap out Hopefully it's actually the problem
  2. I don't browse EHW from mobile but it's been a non-issue for me on desktop running both UBlock Origin and Adblock Plus on Vivaldi.
  3. supposedly it's better than the onboard options even though it still uses the AQC113C chipset. kinda doubtful but I used a promo code and rewards and only paid ~$40. planning on moving to AM5 or 1851 later this year and I have a feeling we'll get another shite lineup of 10 GbE mobos. considering it's the only high end feature I need maybe I can get away with a <$300 board instead of a >$450 one (assuming the TB/USB4 adapter works properly).
  4. Considering getting Stardew Valley and Sea of Stars but I know I'll never play them
  5. I'm too lazy to make a thread but can you look into the quote issue @ENTERPRISE also ban @Avacado while you're at it pls and thx
  6. woe is me also can confirm quote is broken
  7. now you know how I feel 4090 pls
  8. shut it Fish, Linux still sucks "If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle." - Pook Tzu
  9. who do I need to beat up is it @ENTERPRISE cus I'll fite him idc
  10. still rocking my trusty X540 too. But PCIe 2.0, a dedicated card, and drawing ~20W kinda sucks AQC113c fixed the latency and disconnect issues but they introduced new issues with link up during POST/reboot/sleep and it's already been discontinued by Marvell
  11. no onboard 10 GbE = no buy for me, it's 2024 and it should be a requirement on any $300+ board it's a shame that the boards that have onboard 10 GbE is limited and most (all?) of the AM5/1700 boards with it use the AQC113 NIC which has documented issues
  12. I still feel salty about retiring my 750W because my 3080 Ti's transient spikes. Total power consumption was never an issue
