Hope the sale goes well. Really good caps for a first sale, and not over priced too.

Off Topic / Re: Vega.. Power consumption.

No way I can accept that 150W extra over a 1080. To me, power efficiency and less heat generation is very important, otherwise, I will be cooked in my own room.. already the weather lingers around 29C here, imagine having an inefficient GPU!

Poor AMD.. their engineering prowess is not as good as nVidia huh?

The Lenovo Thinkpad Compact keyboard line is pretty good, on par with the older, AA-powered Apple keyboards. I haven't tried the newer ones ... have a MacBook with the new-style keyboard and that's turned me off from their new boards completely. The Thinkpad only has 3/4-size arrow keys, though.

Still, I have to ask: if you're otherwise happy with the keyboard you have, does ctrl-N/ctrl-P work for you? Those shortcuts work throughout most of the Mac ecosystem and I often prefer them to arrow keys (but then I have caps lock tied to ctrl). One thing I enjoy about MacOS is that many GNU ctrl-based shortcuts are built-in, including c-N (next line), c-P (previous line), c-A (beginning of line), c-E (end of line), c-F (forward one character), c-B (back one character) and c-K (kill line, although it doesn't yank it to the clipboard).

Making Stuff Together! / Re: Resin Casting Issues - Tips?
« Last post by klaushouse on Sat, 19 August 2017, 21:04:11 »
Good news! Things worked a lot better this time, everything cast very nicely. I made a few mistakes with the keycap (not using enough lube) so I lost a bit of the shape of the key but overall as the test I wanted it to be, super success! Really happy, no problems. I'll post a bunch of pictures just because I'm happy. The last one shows the difference between my old pour and new one, and how much clearer it's gotten. :)

The fact that tp wears floaties/water wings eventhough he is a grown ass man (biologically).

3 days of rest apparently, resurrection on tuesday.

but he changed the day number to be | | |

Roman numerals I assume, first post says Topre tuesday on day 64 at the bottom so we'll at least be getting that one  :thumb:

yeah, but Zealios is my life so I'll sit that one out lol

Haha I feel you, same thing for me (at least for now :p ) but it's nice to see Topre people getting some love as well, plus their color schemes were usually made in MX as well so the chances for a few more days of Poisoned Summer aren't too bad I think   :)

It's really not the responsibility of Nvidia or AMD to decide who their cards should be made for or sold to.
Money is money and if people will pay for something for whatever it's worth, then here shouldn't be an issue.
However, with the GDDR5 shortages now being a crippling blow for all GPU production, adoption rates for pc gamers are going to cripple and it's going to really harm the pc gamer space if nothing is done.


In the grand scheme, crypto currency is innocuous, after elon saves us with solar.


BUHH,  in the short term,  it's a huge waste of good electricity.

u need to buy a noctua cooler for it abd mod it to fit. its the only way

that's impossible,   the chip is too close to the pcie,

I would have to use a ribbon cable ..  if i wanted to bolt-mod a cooler.

horses say neigh, men say can be done

As long as it isn't making contact with any leads or solder bubble, it should be fine, right?

well it's anodized, so technically as long as there isn't PRESSURE against any components,   it shouldn't cut through the anodized layer to become conductive..

HOwever..  still triggered. !!
