Do you think devs should take political stands like this? In this case I fully support him. Absolutely based to not be cowed by some angry Chinese people.

how much of a difference in component quality is there between buying something like the Asus PRIME B450M-K and an Asus TUF B450M Plus Gaming?
I saw they're both using the same VRM
I don't care about OC at all but I want the computer to last a long while
>>
>>73896752
The prime has no cooling on the VRMs so unless you're going to use top down oriented coolers, or keep with stock, they're gonna get a little heated. Even with just stock loads. Then there is stuff like the Prime having less I/O. If the cost difference isn't too much, get the TUF.

>CPU cooler worse than the stock one

>motherboard won't run any Zen 2 CPU out of the box, needs a BIOS update
i got confused because some newsgroups say that some are shipped with "ryzen 3000 ready" marking and no update is needed. can you suggest an alternative in the same price range without the bios upgrade neccessar?

Why are people in the internet so obsessed with high quality PSU? is there something I'm missing?
I've been using a cheap thermaltake for 5 years and it still works fine. 5 years before that I used a cheap antec.
When I was a repair guy the only ones I saw failing were these ultra cheap no name brands.

Any opinions on this for a general use/gaming PC? Trying to get at least 5 years out of this and I'm upgrading from a i5-2500k/GTX 970. Microcenter has the 3700x on sale for $280, would it make sense to get that instead of 3600x? 1440p/144hz monitor, but I probably won't be playing the latest AAA titles.

I hope all the current in use containers/codecs stay in use for a long ass time cause I've got 4.5TB of media and I've no fucking desire to redo it all in order to playback on some new TV I get after my current one dies. Nor upgrade my Plex server or it's hardware. It works fine as is. Here's the real big killer of your rips: Display size. The larger the display, the worse the image quality. Due to up scaling. Older rips were done under the assumption that sets wouldn't get to be 70+ inches so yeah it's just how it is. But then again, most people don't have auditorium size living rooms either so it's all good unless you like having the TV so fucking close you can touch the screen with your hand from the couch.

Using my unRAID server with .in and omg and slug and geek for shits and giggles. With the sonarr/radarr/lidarr automation and hydra/jacket and ombi, it's totally fire and forget media serving. Beats the absolute hell out of private torrent sites, even though I maintain an active membership on a lot of them.

I was totally torrent only until a few months ago. Usenet is just so much more hassle free. And yeah, you pay for the easier use. I'm happy to pay for 2 providers and 4 indexers to be able to just type in the name of a movie and have it show up in my Plex 5 minutes later.

different strokes for different folks. I would really hate only being able to ping people on slack or email them, like if I have a question or want to discuss something its way easier to just talk face to face. In addition I like having a separation between work and home, idk the feeling of "I'm not being paid currently so I don't have to think or do anything related to the job" is just compounded by being in a different space.

Most Latin American countries have average IQs in the high 80's to low 90's range, while most studies of India put their average IQ in the low-mid 80's. But India has far more people than every hispanic country put together, so the pool of those smart enough to at least pretend to do this kind of work is larger.
