    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Well to each his own. I’ve had glossy years ago and didn’t like seeing all the reflections behind me. I’d prefer a light matte like on my Alienware aw3418dw. So there is no “correct answer” here. It’s nice to have options.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Any idea on pricing? This might be the ticket. 900 NITs brightness for HDR is more than LG C2 42”. (IF the 900 NIT rating is legit for the 42” Swift). Also IMO, matte works better for a computer monitor than glossy.

    Every man needs a four pack - flashlights 10 bucks shipped

    Yeah. I’m sure that’s true but… $90 vs $2.50 The ever-ready lights are inexpensive and sometimes that’s all you need. They are of surprising quality. They have the three light modes, they also have the zoom/focus pull out feature on the lens. Surprising how nice for $2.50 Run on triple A...

    SK Hynix 1TB P41 NVME not as fast as reviewed drives - how to tune?

    I have the newest BIOS on my motherboard F7 and Windows is fully updated. Not sure what BIOS you are mentioning I'm two behind on? Where'd you even see that LOL? I can't seem to find any BIOS updates for the P41 Drive. I downloaded the newest Intel Chipset Drivers from my motherboard...

    SK Hynix 1TB P41 NVME not as fast as reviewed drives - how to tune?

    Well, whatever is wrong with it on this Anvil Benchmark, isn't a problem on the 3DMark Storage Benchmark! :cool: Windows Central said the SK Hynix was the fastest NVME they ever tested and it got this score in their test. Mine benched even faster!

    PCI-E lane question on Intel 690 motherboard with 12700k

    That’s good to hear, but how does it even work? Does the 690 Chipset have its own PCI-E lanes in addition to what the CPU offers? I.E. lntel Ark site says that the 12700K only has 20 PCI-E lanes...

    Daily Mining Profits

    I keep it simple. I buy and hold. I don't trade crypto. If I thought BTC was dying I wouldn't be selling my equipment to buy more BTC. As to selling my Ampere cards -- I won't be selling them until the next Crypto boom, as they'll be worth more then, than they are now. Just like in 2020 when...

    SK Hynix 1TB P41 NVME not as fast as reviewed drives - how to tune?

    The SK Hynix is supposed to be the fastest NVME on the market right now, according to most review sites. For example: https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/10110/sk-hynix-platinum-p41-2tb-ssd-the-best-yet/index.html Here is the IOPS read test. Here is the full Anvil test from TweakTown I...

    Daily Mining Profits

    That’s one perspective. I’m holding till it hits 100K, and then I’ll re-evaluate — or likely riding it into the ground. BTC has faced plenty of headwind before and recovered and advanced.

    Daily Mining Profits

    Keep in mind fellows it doesn’t matter what BTC you are mining is worth now, it only matters what it’s worth when you sell it. As long as you are still accumulating it, and believe it will still higher long term than it is now, then keep mining. Case in point. I stopped mining in 2020 because...
