    Got the corsair m65 a few weeks ago, and damn it just doesn't feel right :/ It 's an awesome mouse, but it's giving me RSI like I used to have when I was constantly at my pc. Not impressed :/ Never had problems with my razer imperator (flame on), was perfect for 4+ years.

    That's a shame.

    I loved my M90 but it was always giving me static shocks no matter what I did to try to remedy the problem, and it turned off a lot and had errors up the wazzoo. I should have returned it when I had the chance, it's been sitting in my desk for over a year now. lol

    - - - Updated - - -

    Yeah... just pulled the M90 out and tried plugging it in.

    Didn't even turn on.

    New reason I just realized to not buy an X79 type of computer system or X80 GPU...

    They produce too much heat, and I keep my large stash of quite expensive and hard to replace (most you can't buy anymore) beers down here in the basement as well... The basement is already 58 to 60 F and that's a little on the warm side. The computer needs to produce as little heat as possible. :P

    So my new parts arrived (finally). Haven't turned it into a completed build yet, because i didn't anticipate the power supply's modular plugs sitting in the way. I ordered a Super Flower SF-550P14XE (HX). It's of better quality than the Be Quiet L8 anyway.

    Love the features this board has, it's absolutely one of my favorite boards i've ever owned. And i'm sure as hell never buying asrock again, glad i got rid of that board.

    That's not a reason. You just need one of those wine cabinets that have stable temperature and anti-vibration shell to preserve your valuable beers.

    Well, I've thought of those but they hold them on their side. Beer is typically meant to be stood up.

    (I've not confirmed how important this is, but most breweries say to keep their beers in the standing position.) >_<

    It would seriously need to be quite tall... thus too expensive.

    Well damn. My bad in that case.

    In other news.. Anyone have/had experience with the 3d component of a 3ds/xl? More interested to see whether it gets tough on the eyes on a long gaming session for example. Been itching to play the new pokemon so trying to decide whether to get a 3ds or 2ds.

    From this thread:

Their original drives before this used Sandforce (pre 2000), then they switched to a modded SF2000 controller rebranded Indilinx (not the same chip that Indilinx eventually co-developed with OCZ) for Vertex 2 era drives as well as very early Vertex 3 / Agility 3 / Octane / etc etc on said 25nm NAND. AFAIK that only had a few month window, which just magnified the issue and confusion due to the new controllers and memory spanning over 2 generations of their drives in such a short time.

    In regards to the return rate, that's one site. It's also drives that were all sold during a small window in time. If that site had sold the defective Corsair lineup, their numbers would have been similar.



    They recalled for different reasons: http://www.pcper.com/news/Storage/Co...rdware-defects

    They likely wouldn't have recalled if they weren't having physical PCB issues. Worth noting that none of the other manufacturers did either.



    Their Sandforce issue was the Indilinx issue. Same controller, they just rebranded it after their modifications to it. Honestly, I don't comprehend the "they handled poorly" thing. It's not like they didn't honor RMA's, and if you remember back then they even offered refunds months after purchase if a retailer didn't agree to.

    The screenshot was a screenshot, "Hey look, here's an OCZ drive that has been on for 2,600+ hours that has perfect S.M.A.R.T. data. People just make them out to be a guaranteed failure. I had my diagnostic work drive next to me, so I figured why not? Portable version of SSDLife is pretty much the quickest way to pull up r/w totals and TRIM status.
    Well you might not comprehend it but that's how it was, it's not some made up story, it's quite well known how poorly OCZ customer service handled the whole situation, not taking responsibility etc. until long after everyone else did. A bad reputations doesn't usually spawn out of nothing.

    I'm just saying your screenshot doesn't prove anything beyond your drive being fine which no one that I know of have disputed. Who are these people that "make them out to be a guaranteed failure"? sure there are trolls and maybe a few completely unaware people but they're always around no matter which brand we are talking about. However having having 8-10% or even higher return rate is pretty bad no matter how you twist and turn it. 10% is not 100% so chances are quite high that your SSD is fine.

    The initial comment was made to Deltrus about "no company would stand for that" when in fact OCZ did indeed "stand for it" via their stubbornness and poor media/support handling unlike most other brand at the time. There is really no need to start debating the whole OCZ situation one more time, you disagree with the majority and that's probably not going to change no matter how hard anyone tries.

    It's quite clear they've had a rough time and clearly not bathing in success but at least Toshiba has seen some potential in the company and let them handle their own SSDs, their power supplies which has also had quite a few issues, although they do have some decent units, and other products are still not sold off afaik.

    Also for the most part everyone has been able to buy Crucial, Samsung and a few others at the same price level but with much better reliability and support so it seemed like the obvious choice with a few exceptions. Why take a much bigger risk when there is an affordable and more reliable option.

    Yes, it's a placeholder for when you don't use it. You can break it out.

    So i'm currently in the market to buy a DAC. That Dragonfly v1.2 looks mighty tempting..

    So, I have half a mind to return the TASCAM US-366 USB DAC interface. For the $202 it cost me, it is really lacking, for one, in the SNR department - when there is a really high pitch part in a song or low pitch, I can hear scratching, which is obviously not okay by most peoples' standards, who care about how their audio sounds.

    If a ground loop isolator works, then hey, that would be cool because that would mean I could just go back to using my ASUS Xonar DX with 116 dB SNR... or maybe I'd just order an AudioEngine D1, which has a 110 dB SNR.

    Either of which is quite superior to the 96-98 dB SNR of the TASCAM. >_<

    Not to mention the headphone port on this thing is pointless, as it isn't very strong.

    Yeah when i was looking I looked at that unit of yours, but I got the impression it's not really meant to be used as a DAC per se. More like a recording device for guitars. So you can record without the delay FE a Xonar would give you.

    I'd recommend the D1 over the Xonar DX. But yeah, it costs more.

    Xonar shouldn't have delay and even if it did, you are most likely not gonna record straight from guitar to the pc anyway are you.
