Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 vs. Windforce OC by HughSannerstuck.rtf - Mon, 05 Nov 2018 15:55:25 EST ID:AuSwfqSz No.122091 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey guys,

So everyone told me to get the WINDFORCE OC model of the Gygabite GTX 1070, saying the superior price tag of the G1 model wasn't worth it (indeed who cares about RGB lighting).

Here's the thing though, weirdly enough I can get the G1 for cheaper right now.

So here's my question: Should I go and buy the G1 after all if it's the same price or cheaper? Or are there hidden cons the G1 has that the Windforce doesn't have?

Thanks in advance.

I've puttered on with 4GB of memory a good many years now, but thinking of getting some more.
Is it likely that the pricing will drop down again sometime or should one just bite the bullet and get some sticks before it increases even more?

Is it a good/bad idea to spend money on RAM now if one can wait?

Especially with DDR3 since the new platforms support it and plenty of people were buying out the old stock when it was cheaper than DDR4. So that window of opportunity was very short.

But to OP, there's no way to know but it doesn't look like it. Just bite the bullet if you need to. I thought it would drop since I built my PC but it's only gone up.

If you don't mind testing it, you should only be buying used DDR3. Modules last pretty much forever and the price will steadily drop until most of it is in landfills.

Aliminum to "Extend" Audio Jack Cable by NathanielMangerbanks.phtml - Wed, 03 Oct 2018 22:52:21 EST ID:VoJoQBVu No.122027 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey guys!

Alright, I'm really bad when it comes to things like this, hence this (very likely) stupid post.

The right side of my Audio-Technica headphones isn't working anymore. I don't know whether or not it's merely the cable.

Here's the thing though: I can't test it with a spare audio jack because of its design. It is too deep than for me to reach the actual port.

The picture highlights the aforementioned problem so that hopefully by now you understand what I'm going on about. So to sum it up, the "overextending" part of the cable is supposed to go in as well, so that it is far enough to make contact.

So finally here comes my question. Could I just put some aluminum foil at the end of the cable in order to reach the port and establish a connection? Or, is this the worst and dumbest idea in the history of /tech/? Also what would be the potential risks (assuming it is even worth trying).

Well at least I'm asking before doing anything since I really don't want to wreck my headphones, which I truly love and miss so much.

Thanks in advance my friends. Any tip on how to test if it's just the cable or not will definitely be greatly appreciated.

The thing I don't like it is I had an M50x with the swappable cables. Well I jiggled it around 'cos I had the one cable I liked and it would generally bring the left side back to working. Thing is, when I tried the other cables, it turned out that it's the single non-replaceable part of the connection that broke.

Call me paranoid but it seemed intentional.

Will it hurt anything if i turn my motherboard's "video out" on?

I want to plug my PC to my big TV but the HDMI on my video card is messed up.

Will it hurt anything like using too much power of put too much demand on the cpu if I turn the motherboard's video out on?

I also have two monitors on my video card already.

Worst case, you'll have no video and need to move your cable to the other output to get to BIOS setup and revert the change.

Enabling integrated can be used to add more monitors, or to give you a way to access the host system while PCI-passthroug-hing your real GPU to a VM, or to use QuickSync to encode video if it's a recent Intel CPU.

You're a fucking idiot. The time it starts is when you receive the prompt. If it's a midterm then you just study and you have to write the paper in the allotted time during the test (usually around 2 hours) without a computer which significantly increases the amount of time it takes to write it. Go to college and see you absolute fuckong dolt.

If you don't think a students parents paying for their kids new expensive laptop that they could live without such an expensive one,, tuition, everything. Sending money while their kids slack off and act like asses because of that 'freedom.' Don't you think the parents expect each class, each assignment, that the moment they walk into class that that is the beginning of having time to
use every moment in the class to essentially study.

One may get an assignment, then have it suddenly change. Kinda like pop quizzes. Like "are you paying attention?" Or just what kinda barely sinks in and will worry about details later.

Know what is expected as well not expected. Some professors will change an assignment just like that. From typed to written, from written to an on the spot oral presentation, to a demonstration.

We got sudden 10 page topics due the next morning, why? because. The class that day was a teachers presentation, not just teaching, but a noticeable presentation of the subject(s.) Thise who payed attention and especially saw what was coming, went home, did their work and
others were completely lost. 10 fkn pages from just one presentation by the instructor.
Or were these ongoing assignments from day one?

Corporations used services provided by [email protected], to name one, back when cell phones I don't think even remotely existed. Although two way radios, fm radio, uses trunks, 'to communicate from one to another.' These, [email protected], others, services allowed trunk access to make possible switching to long distance calls for corporations from local lines.

Trunkin I gues you could call it, has many applications, cell phones, whatever communication you can really think of. They differ greatly of course. I believe home networking is just as trunk access, switching, as anything else. As well, say lighting, um, concerts. It is communication from one party to anothers party.

This is from mostly memory from the past. And lots of studying stuff that may seem insignificant or boring. I am not that old but have worked for, with significant persons of technology. Me doing work for people who worked on components like zip drive, cd technology. Professors from like MIT, others who worked on .gov technology. technology that makes today's technology what it is. Although not knowing part of what these people are talking about, I guess i seemed enough to carry on hours of conversation. Which older technology seems basically boring, applying it to today's technology, it makes sense. If one cannot understand older technology,
how will they actually understand here and now technology. Sure you can do it, but knowing the background of like tor, understanding DNS basics. It is all worthwhile.
Anyway, a hacker of significance. John Draper. AKA Captain Crunch. Why capn crunch nick. More than one reason. However, he tried to sell known technology, among other known uses of switching. Made some money but not a great venture.
What he was selling was; simple tones would make phone services do it's thing, like corporations could utilize long distance, calling for commerce, etc. By switching into trunk lines. Others learned to do this also. He furthered these but few were interested. So, after Apple, and all this.

He did make a whistle, it put out a 2600Mhz frequency. So could make long distance calls. He learned this from laying lines.
What they can and are meant to accomplish by which means. This whistle, one could go to a pay phone and whistle and
access the trunk and switch. Free phone calls.

So Peter Dutton, Australian Minister of the Home Office and suspiciously wealthy ex Queensland drug cop, has looked at China's Jingwang Weishi software and thought "fuck yeah, let's do that." Legislation towards forcing backdoor software onto AT LEAST mobile phones is being discussed (and in every interview he keeps using the word "computer" so it's safe to assume he plans to backdoor any device his fat potato fingers can fingerbang).


So here is my question. How do I go about defeating this tyrannical bullshit?

Is it a matter of keeping obsolete technology for shady dealings? Is the answer always Linux? Should I just trust in the sheer incompetence of the Australian government?

Cellphones are all hopelessly compromised. Off the shelf phones can't be secured against threats like this. There's a startling lack of detail to go off of, but in general you want to be using end to end encryption on devices that you have complete control over without relying on third party services for privacy. So Whatsapp on your phone is an easy target and it's surely what they have in mind, but if you use XMPP+OTR on your Linux laptop and tether it to your phone then that's well beyond the reach of an Australian government order. The flip side is that these more resilient technologies are less popular and easier for the state to block without protest.

Phones have some locked up chain of trust on their SoC that you can't in any way modify without destroying the phone completely and irreversibly. That chain of trust eventually leads to firmware and google stallionery that boots linux and then android, which is just more google stallionery. Some phones probably have built in hardware that has its own little processor or so, so they can do basic stuff even when the phone is off and android (or whatever OS you use) isn't even running. Even using custom stuff like cyanogen, lineage etc aren't safe from the SoC that runs them, so you can never be sure.

The same problem with desktop and laptop computers, all the ones with intel CPUs have IME, and AMD ones have some equivalent things. It's been trendy to add separate processors to processors that do stuff like signing and checking firmware and CPU microcode and manages stuff, and these have network access too - you don't even need to boot your OS they can do stuff anyway.

Trying to circumvent these is like trying to think about the pink elephant without using your brain or body. You are fucked. Of course governments don't have infinite resources so with certain levels of preparedness, you can get lucky, probably.

I'm thinking of making the switch from 60hz to something like 120 or 144hz. I'm doing some research myself but was curious what you guys thought would be the best monitor that is affordable but not sacrificing much in quality. I was thinking the ASUS VG278Q.

I think the cool kids use IPS monitors or some shit. I'm an OLED person if I can manage it. Just look up different monitor types and figure out what kind is best for your use case. You'll end up getting an ASUS monitor in the end anyways.

VG278Q and AOC G2460PG are in similar price ranges and I used both. I liked the colors on them compared to Benq which I always thought were extremely washed out, if you end up going with the ASUS there is a color profile you can find on google which makes it shine. The switch is worth it for any FPS, if you need a monitor for color work you are still better off with an IPS though
