[WTB] old CPUs i7 2600K, 2700K, etc

11 December 2018 - 02:43 PM

Im looking to buy old CPUs. If you have some to off-load for cheap I'll take them. I will be overclocking them till it dies from voltage. So I don't want to pay a lot of something I'll be killing.


I'll buy MB+CPU combos also.


Now is the time to off-load old junk.

Quick Math Help

Hey my brain became stupid and I need to figure this out.


I need to know how much ink is used in square feet


worked out that 1.29861111111 Sq.Ft printed space = 1.7ml of ink used. So how much ink is used in 1 Sq.Ft? and how much 1ml of ink equals to in square ft.


Thanks. This has to be simple but i'm losing it lol.

eBay buying woes

30 October 2018 - 04:50 PM

I know the first thing people are going to say is "you should have known". Against my better judgement i bought a used x399 motherboard. Basically $125ish off with a free monoblock.

I got the motherboard today and did my inspection. It is really good i did, this seller didnt reassembled the the heatinks right. Everything was lose and im sure he tried to watercool it with vrm 3 thermalpads instead of the one included with the monoblock. Water was still under the pads and im supprised it didnt short on the dude. It was rough.

Lession is to be prepared to get total crap when ordering. If i just assumed it was fine, i would have a dead cpu and be super pissed today.

HDR "Washout / Blownout Color playback fix

20 April 2018 - 06:19 PM

I've been trying to watch HDR content on my computer and I kept running into the washout grey and bland color palette problem that a lot of people have with VLC or MPC-HC. Sometimes it would be blown out as in the example I posted below. After some digging I found two solutions that has mix results. Try each alone and than togther and see what looks the best.


1: Change the color range in the control panel to Full 0-255 instead of the default 16-235 (Limited).  For NVIDIA it can be found under "Adjust Video Settings" Inside the NVIDIA control panel. AMD has it somewhere similar to this.

2: Download install MadVR plug-in. Tell your video player to use it as a default render.


Hope this helps people because it annoyed me for months now. I had it kinda working with VLC 2.5 without MadVR, but playback was laggy for HEVC 4K.

Anyone need a video card?

08 March 2018 - 01:26 PM

Yeah I know its click bait but I found four RIVA NV128 in a box at work. I actually used one for a Pentium 2 with a bad video card last week. This P2 is running the EAS (Emergency Alert System) for a good chunk of Montana haha. Lucky for us, no real alerts ever come down, only a test once a month.
