ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.
feels nice that we can finally let the thread reach page 11 peacefully without people trying to hijack the OP with their own stuff or anything
no more fighting for early threads, just a peaceful thread death
Studied math in undergrad want to learn more CS. Currently working through the /g/ meme C book (Ritche). When should I start reading pic related?
Here you go, should tear through this if you already have the math background
The meme book is still good, gives you everything all at once
I'm finally upgrading to a real memestation and am stuck on what I should do for graphics.
Is 4k worth it?
Will I be able to find a decent monitor at a reasonable price? I want at least 2 and want them to be quality enough that I don't mind buying a third of the same type later on.
These are the two I'm looking at:
It's hard when I could get 3 normal screens at a fraction of the price.
I also don't play vidya, should I be concerned about:
>ips vs tn
Basically I'm worried that I'll max out just the 4k spec and end up with something that's complete garbage in every other regard.
...and having trouble finding non-affiliate non-prole recommendations
Redpill me on e-ink readers. I want one with f.lux capability, waterproof maybe, good value for the money
I'm not above paying for books, I'm not NEET
i have an old kobo whatever i got years ago for around 60€
haven't red so many books since before getting into computers, scans look decent on it as well
don't get tricked into buying an expensive one, don't buy an amazon reader because of their retarded format support
bonus points for wifi + embedded browser so you can set a calibre server up and use it as your bookstore
you shouldn't pay for books that are freely available

New thread new trick of another Chink magic thing I got:
This time: the spike through coin
I made a video for the local Seattle band "Step Dads." The video was shot on a Cannon 70D and eventually, after many setbacks, recorded to VHS and back to digital. I had no digital to analog, analog to digital converter of any kind. At first I thought I would burn the digital version to DVD then record a VHS from a DVD player playing my DVD. That worked as planned except now I had to get that VHS recording back to digital. Yes i could have used a converter but those are upwards 80 bucks. I went to a 2nd hand computer part store to find a VHS/ DVD Combo recorder deck but came up short. I did however find some 3 dollar PCI-E cable TV tuners with S-video in. I bought a couple of those, hooked it into my PC and realized my VCR has no fucking S-video out. Also, I had to find the out what card I actually had and find windows drivers to even use it which led me to a guy in India that had a google drive with a ton of random drivers and he hooked me up. I could make this go on forever but what I ended up doing was designing my own composite video to S-Video adapter cable by soldering the data and grounds together. This allowed me to see the S-Video input in on a program called "VirtualDub" which let me access my TV Tuner card. The signal was weak and unstable, cutting in and out. I guessed it was because composite isnt supposed to go to S-Video at all because S-video is basically composite but instead of the entire signal going down one wire, its spit into two for brightness and color. I figured the signal was being split or some shit. I soldered a 1000 nf capacitor through the data, plugged it in and to my surprise, worked perfectly. Never thought I'd have to use a god damn soldering Iron to make a music video.
The final product can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9JEvxLzH00
With new CPUs and GPUs being insane housefires
will we see a resurgence in custom water cooling loops?
In the past, the only way to get the full performance was a custom loop. (He 5970,6990, gtx 690) Power usage dropped and better coolers were designed so water was not necessary anymore.
But now, air cooling is reaching it's limits once again.
No. The same autists who already have custom loops are the market for i9s and nobody is going to buy Vega except miners. People aren't going to spend money on a custom loop just to get an Intel housefire. They'll either buy Ryzen, easily cooled on a free cooler that comes in the box, or stick with what they have.
Water cooling is worse than air cooling. It only exists to save space in extreme circumstances or for meme "aesthetics" like OP's image. Performance is worse than standard air across the board.

Every time he does a sponsorship video, he downplays problems and basically lies for money to underage people on YouTube;
often contradicting things he previously said in the past.
I guess you could say that's the point of sponsorship, but still, the man makes a living by lying to kids about tech which translates to kids making hefty mistakes spurred by a shill. He's human trash.
Literally found this laying on a dumpster behind a pawn shop.

Is there anywhere that I can take it that would let me test a charger without buying it?

What piece of undocumented shitty software squid is!
Took me ages to setup a transparent proxy.
Is it OK to set it up like this?http_port 8888 accel vhost allow-directTunneled in ssh
I couldn't make the other modes work.
Re-asking since I posted before seeing the new thread.
What's the consensus on wireless mice? General browsing and gaming (tactical shooters like Arma/Squad/Red Orchestra mainly).
How's their latency? How's the battery life (they advertise like 3 months but I'm assuming that's just standby time)? Anything else I should know?
I've got a logitech G502 which I've had for a couple of years. Still going strong but the cable has become deformed and just from where it's been lying awkwardly and the braiding has shrunk and so it can't be straightened out. I upgraded to this from the G500 which shit the bed due to the cable as well.
I'm moving apartments soon and am looking for an excuse to upgrade my set up.
I have the same question regarding latency and battery life regarding wireless keyboards, too. I see those advertising battery lives of over a year which is just insane unless, again, they're just referring to standby time.
