[QUOTE=Protocol7;52467999]Just spent a half hour trying to get Synergy working on my work laptop so I can keep my keyboard and mouse plugged into my desktop at home... I had the wrong fucking port configured on the server the whole time. :I[/QUOTE] i actually tried synergy and got so fed up with it not working i told them to give me my money back
[QUOTE=LordCrypto;52468199]i actually tried synergy and got so fed up with it not working i told them to give me my money back[/QUOTE] I haven't had too many problems with it, but I'm surprised that they haven't made an effort to improve the config process. It's such an unnecessary pain in the ass.

[QUOTE=LordCrypto;52468199]i actually tried synergy and got so fed up with it not working i told them to give me my money back[/QUOTE] I've had it for years, I think? I still have the same annoyances, bugs and problems as since the first time I bought it. I generally end up uninstalling it, because interferes with mouse movement across screen edges even when the other machine is not on.
So it turns out you have to buy the AM4-AMD Retention Bracket Kit for Hydro Series Coolers for the Corsair H100i V2 separately. Apparently the V1 came with it but the V2 didn't, and it's hard to get in Canada. You gotta order it online off some reseller and pay for shipping. There's a free option but it doesn't cover Canada, it only covers USA and some other countries. Gee thanks Corsair.

[QUOTE=Levelog;52469196]Sounds like Corsair and the like tbh[/QUOTE] Others also recommended the Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4 air cooler to perform better than a liquid cooler, which is weird to me because I thought liquid coolers were commonly better than air coolers.
Nope, not really. Most AIO liquid coolers can't beat top end air, and they're more expensive to boot. [editline]14th July 2017[/editline] Also often louder and more failure prone.
I'm going to need some test results from a non-retard to accept those statements. Edit: And when I say non-retard, I mean like, not Linus putting on a thick layer of Chinese toothpaste. Someone credible.
[QUOTE=TrafficMan;52467505]Also of note is if that 5 user requirement is in their TOS, be prepared for that to end at any time when they decide to start enforcing it[/QUOTE] And as is the case here I need to make sure my data will not disappear overnight with no solution. That is just as bad as before. Went with the 100GB option, can't really complain for £1.59 a month.

Looks like some of the newer models have closed the gap though, still either performing the same or worse for the most part save the 280mm one in there.

Not to mention he's apparently testing this thing in a freezer, the ambient temperature during testing was 19C. Residential households are around 22-25C, and they can get worse when you've got a few hundred watts worth of electronics.

And I have far more than a few hundred watts of electronics.
Didn't they update the pump in the x62 to be quieter and cooler? [editline]14th July 2017[/editline] The x62 is what I'd like to upgrade to, have it on my intake in the front and move all 3 intake fans up top for exhaust
[QUOTE=Levelog;52469323]My house is frequently at that temp? And I have far more than a few hundred watts of electronics.[/QUOTE] Do you have AC? With target temperature and decent airflow all around, it'll just eat up all the ambient heat if you tell it to, but AC is a pretty American thing. Northern Europe, we insulate. Southern Europe, they build the houses out of basically nothing so they get shade + lots of airflow to make you feel cooler, through wind chill. But if you went somewhere stupid like Arizona and set the AC to 19C, you'd be paying for the electricity well into the winter.
Yeah, AC. I keep it really cool in the summer and it's not bad cost wise.
My a.c. is on all summer long, doesn't really hurt my power bill much
[QUOTE=Del91;52469472]My a.c. is on all summer long, doesn't really hurt my power bill much[/QUOTE] I forget if you're still in WA but we have the easiest summers and some of the cheapest electricity in the entire US :v: [editline]14th July 2017[/editline] Like, somewhere like California pays roughly double for electricity compared to Washington if I remember right
Hydro power OP
[QUOTE=Del91;52469472]My a.c. is on all summer long, doesn't really hurt my power bill much[/QUOTE] I'm in florida. If my AC is off for... 5 minutes I feel it.
I have a hilariously low tolerance for heat and humidity, anything above 70F with med humidity and I'm fuckin' dying. As such, I keep my AC on basically all summer long . (I'm in upstate NY)
My moms boyfriend moved here from upstate New York, he's loving the weather here so far. [editline]14th July 2017[/editline] A "heat wave" here is like 106f last week or two it's been upper 70's with today being like 82f [editline]14th July 2017[/editline] Talk about you're local weather itt

I picked up two 8TB easy stores at BB today. Both are WD80EFAX's. Meaning WD Red's with 256mb cache. Hot damn.

[QUOTE=Brt5470;52469709]I picked up two 8TB easy stores at BB today. Both are WD80EFAX's. Meaning WD Red's with 256mb cache. Hot damn.[/QUOTE] How much were they?
[QUOTE=B!N4RY;52469758]How much were they?[/QUOTE] $199 each. They were $179 earlier in june, but I didn't have the cash for it. In comparison, you can find seagate backups plus or expansions for $179, but there is a good chance they still use archive drives. Some people are finding barracudas in them now though.
Neat, the screen protector on my s8 is scratched
They're also super fucking quiet and perform great. ~190MB/s at 5400rpm on the outside.
Is it self content if I some how managed to use the hotkey to activate filter keys (apparently, hold shift for 8 seconds then tap enter??) accidentally and then was very confused why my computer just beeped at me instead of typing letters?
