final final update v2 2032

The last 4 numbers are the year, not a version number. ;)

yeh, it wasn't a mistake

It was to try and limit the number of updates though. ;)

Got an ASRock

I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee

 

I as well used to think that ASRock is a great combination of low price, good peripheral functionality and feature-rich BIOS, but their motherboards fail me so reliably that it crosses any and all boundaries of statistical uncertainty. I had to deal with five (all different models), and not a single one of them worked for more than a couple years. Last two of them failed one month after the warranty ran out. I swear, there are some engineering geniuses working at ASRock's Planned Obsolescence Department.

Come the full moon, the bat flies whose boiling blood shall stem the tide.

Was that also back when they were a subsidiary of ASUS and were relegated to the lowest-end parts? Also, did you contact their support for that barely out of warranty failure, or did you just assume they wouldn't be decent people willing to help you out? I've had a few interactions with their support team, and no bad experiences yet... Heck, I flat out told them that I basically fried my motherboard and CPU due to accidentally setting an overclocking voltage WAY too high and letting it run like that for over a month, and they still replaced the motherboard for free. (AMD replaced the CPU with an upgraded one as well, even with the same story of essentially voiding my warranty)

 

So far ASRock is also the only one to make Micro-ATX boards for the higher-end chipsets that aren't extortionate in pricing. (like the X570M Pro4)

Oh! Oh! Hardware!

 

My machine's specs:

CPU: Ryzen 7 1700X (@4Ghz)

MOBO: ASUS Crosshair 6 Hero

RAM: 32GB G-Skill Trident Z RGB (Two separate kits bought before and after the pricing debacle, one's Samsung and the other's SK Hynix)

GPU0: Corsair Hydro GFX 980ti

GPU1: MSI 980ti Gaming (Pretty much never in SLI, this card is for more monitors and GPGPU compute)

Storage: Samsung 970 Pro 256GB, Sandisk [something] 120GB, WD Red Pro 4TB

PSU: Corsair HX1000i

Cooling: Corsair H110i GT on the CPU, stock on the cards

Case: Cooler Master HAF XB Evo

 

Funny story about the RGB RAM: I actually didn't intend to get it at first. I looked for a store with normal Trident Z in stock, drove out, looked for about 15 minutes, called someone over, he went in the back and looked for about 10 minutes, then they gave up and gave me the RGB RAM for the same price as the normal kit. Now I kind'a like it.

 

Anyway, something I've had on my mind: Anyone remember when NVidia bumped the price of the Titan to $1200 a couple years ago? Remember how mad everyone was, how much discussion it generated? I've been looking at GPUs again, and there's a $1300 x80ti card that people seem perfectly okay with.

The 780ti was $700, my 980ti was $650, the 1080ti was $700, now the 2080ti is $1300? In two generations they doubled the price?

 

The 2080ti is about twice as fast as the 980ti, which means there has been literally no net change in price to performance on the high end between now and 2015. This is insanity.

Another awesome addition to my system... A GMMK keyboard with Kailh Pro Purple switches and 40A thick o-rings. (I also got the Kailh Speed Silver, but decided to start with the Purple because they felt like they'd be better for typing, and they definitely are)

 

My KPM has gotten much faster with this keyboard, and I'm making far fewer typos. (though just as many "I should say this a different way" mistakes that I have to correct, as that's a brain related issue, not hardware)

 

I may end up putting down some stories now that have been roaming in my head for decades... I have a keyboard that makes me want to keep typing, for the first time ever.
