[QUOTE=Protocol7;53060149]So I have decided to give up LastPass because the browser extensions are pretty terrible (going from Chrome to Firefox was great except for the heavily downgraded LastPass extension). Would you guys recommend Dashlane or 1Password to replace it? I'm kinda leaning towards 1Password so I can save the extra $4 a year, but I've been using Dashlane for a bit and it seems nice. Mostly just wondering if anyone uses either or personally and has good/bad things to say about it. They seem about the same in terms of features, design quality and security, so unless anyone has any strong feelings one way or another I'll probably just pick one of the two and roll with it.[/QUOTE] KeePass 2 and like dropbox or something. Total cost: $0.

Seconding KeePass. I don't trust anyone with my passwords but me.
i keep opera around for its built in vpn and nice pdf reading
[QUOTE=tratzzz;53060011]When firefox refuses to open a .pdf, I use the Edge one. When that refuses, I use Chrome and when that refuses, I upload it to Drive and check it out from there. Also, most of the time I only have to see a pdf when it is in my email and then gmail has a pdf reader built in.[/QUOTE] If Firefox refuses, I use steam

Sipwicket I'm sorry to bother you but I need some emotional support :ohno: [media]https://twitter.com/DrDaxxy/status/953793157849931776[/media]
What happened? Drop damage?
Looks like a drop to me. Sorry to hear, but at least displays don't usually cost more than $100. God help you if it's a newer, glued-together laptop though.

It's a convertible ~ultrabook~ with a capacitive touchscreen and inductive digitizer, so there's no way I'm repairing that myself. This is also the OLED screen I kept bragging about, which means two things: - IIRC the OLED models of this were 200€ more expensive than the otherwise exactly equivalent IPS models. At student pricing. - These screens are rare as diamonds. There's rarely a time when Lenovo [I]doesn't[/I] have shipping issues with these models, so the chance that the part is unavailable for a few months up to eternity is pretty high. :cry: [sp]still not regretting getting this model tho, that screen was dank[/sp]
At least now we know what OLED screens looks like when they break, right?

-snip- nvm, Stylish to the rescue.
[QUOTE=Warship;53061890]At least now we know what OLED screens looks like when they break, right?[/QUOTE] I like how as the OLED substrate is exposed to air it rapidly degrades. It's like there's something infecting and eating the display, it looks creepy as shit.
[QUOTE=magravn;53062009]At least you can revel in the true blacks of the broken area[/QUOTE] If you break your laptop screen by tripping into a crevasse at night while skiing with your african-american friends in an unmaintained diamond section of Hidden Valley Ski Resort in St. Louis, MO, does that mean that you can revel in the true blacks of the broken area while reveling in the true blacks of the broken area while reveling in the true blacks of the broken area while reveling in the true blacks of the broken area?
Got a Dell U2715H for work because everyone's third monitor is an old shit one instead of the nice 24'' Dells we have two of. Colours are :ok: and everyone thinks I'm weird for having a 24'' high monitor as my main. Also it looks like a deformed dick now.
Just had a look at the place where I order 99% of my PC components from (jimms.fi). Basically everything I have, has gone up in value, except for my CPU. DDR4, yeah not a big surprise, and I only got my NVMe SSD some weeks ago. Graphics card prices don't seem to have risen much at all, actually, but there's also the problem that [I]they're not available in any quantity[/I]. Current resale value is probably more than I paid for the card originally. My cheap Samsung PLS FreeSync display went from 149€ to 164.90€. I have no idea how that happened.
So in my system I have the EKWB A240G kit and it's pretty cheap. I don't care about staining n shit. So long as it doesn't leak. I do plan to upgrade the loop at some point but for now i'm just dicking around. I had Mayhems X1 UV blue in there. I leaked most out of it out and threw in this new coolant from UFO Technologies. It's basically Mayhems Aurora but better because it WILL last. (I know you usually need to COMPLETELY clean a loop before installing new shit.. but I don't care with this loop. I'm certain it won't clog and I know for a fact it won't kill my components but fuck it we'll see.) [t]https://i.imgur.com/HQnjOyF.jpg[/t] I also added some Mayhems Sky blue UV dye because the X1 UV blue coolant I had was fucking weak and barely reacted to my UV cathodes. Funny to, before I even added the UV dye, I noticed it reacted to my UV lights more than my actual fucking UV coolant.. ANYWAY HERE IS HOW IT LOOKS IN MY SYSTEM. [media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOQbqC7qcsA[/media] *EDIT* Quick note I forgot to add. You def. want some light shining on the tubes and res. to fully show off the effect. My UV lights in my case didn't light it up enough. I turned on my Cablemod RGB LEDs to a less bright blue. Enough to show off the effect of the coolant but not too much to outshine the UV.
I don't know about that specific coolant, but there was a brand making a very similar type of "3D coolant" a few years back, and they warned that the coolant should only be used for shorter term display purposes. There are videos showing that after about a year, the coolant has turned grey and it's not very sparkly anymore. Not sure if the same thing applies with your coolant, but it's something to watch out for.

They made a 2nd version of it and idk how it is. My first coolant in this loop was Aurora 1 red and the effect didn't last more than 10 minutes.. literally. Luckly it didn't stain or clog but the shit was worthless. You need a STRONG pump for Aurora. Idk bout v2. As for effects. I imagine the worst things to come would be staining, clogging (highly doubt this tho), worse thermals, discoloring or least worst the effect just dies down or goes away completely. So far, been well over an hour and it's fine but i'll report back in a week or so if the effect is still there and a couple months or more on how it's reacting in general.
I've kind of always wanted to do a custom loop, but I don't generate enough heat to justify it for myself. I have a Corsair Hydro H75 on my order (that will hopefully ship today or next week) for my CPU, because Corsair was having a Christmas sale and it was pretty much the same price as the Noctua cooler I was looking at, in the configuration I would have had the Noctua cooler in. My 480 only draws 150-160W on the core, the stock cooling is more than enough for it, and it would be a pain trying to get a waterblock for it since it's not a reference design anyways. Edit: I'm stuffing some Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut between the waterblock of the AIO and my 1700. That shit is going to last 4-6+ years. Not going to upgrade that anytime soon when I get it set up.

[media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5Z_gOos8ng[/media][/QUOTE] Vue is def. nicer looking but sadly Vue isn't compatible with aluminum products :( Also I heard a lot of negative feedback about Vue. There isn't much feedback for this Cryochills coolant but so far from what i've heard it's actually holding up well. Part of the reason why I think Vue isn't doing well is because of the major difference between the cryochills coolant and vue. Vue is basically their opaque coolant/mayhems pastel fluid but with 3D effects. Nano fluids like pastel or opaque clog for a lot of people or discolors. That's why more transparent fluids like Aurora or Cryochills don't have this issue.
Distilled water or bust
I remember once buying a Thermaltake setup with a watercooler. The liquid we bought advertised itself as an algae preventative. The pump died from algae buildup.
Custom loops scare me.
[QUOTE=Trekintosh;53064933]Custom loops scare me.[/QUOTE] Flexible tubing is pretty easy if you plan properly and make sure the components are serviceable before putting them in. Currently putting together mk2 of my loop after it exploded, can't wait to see what components are fucked!!!! (please do not let it be my GPUs) I'd love to do hardline in the future though.

That shit is so easy. As for barb fittings or hard line tubing, nah i'll leak test. As for hardline, that's what I want to go to but I plan to go to with a no bends loop and just use angled fittings.

I would never trust their coolants lol. There are an insane amount of reviews of their opaque fluid gunking up loops.
With how much I leave my computer on (24/7 basically), I think I'm going to stick to air
