Questions and Rants

Recommended Posts

Why do people offer/buy presets for Chtuhlu ?   I thought the whole point was for generating ideas.   I have it and so far have not put it to use.

 

Rant

PC hardware - it seems it's more about aesthetics.  The prices of fans seem pretty high because the glow.   I want the Chernobly meltdown color if possible.  

I guess most budget mid tower cases aren't designed for DAW users who like more than 4 drives.  

I'm still waiting for the video card market to crash to play some games.       

Intel is still pricey.   They ditched stock coolers.  Buying a cooler can be a crapshoot.   The CPU + cooler makes Intel expensive.   AMD still comes with a cooler.

A decent rant!  I give it a 4.1 out of 5.  😁

 Kite I think it's because they have a market with the gamer crowd, though I have seen studios where they dress up the computer case. Goes along with the running light leds under the recording desk . When I bought a case it was primarily about noise suppression for me. I don't even have a lava lamp.😥

Intel/AMD....that's a can of worms I won't open. Mainly because once it's open I don't know if I can close it :) Competition is good though.

Forget the cooler. Use the CPU to fry some becan.

They don't make Athlons anymore.  The Prescotts (still got a P4 system parted out) could also do the job.

I once burned my finger on one of those when I was swapping CPUs in a mobo. Ouch! Very hot! :)

The old T-Bird and Athlon heat sinks were the best way to destroy a motherboard.  Then Intel got stupid with the push pin coolers. Despite having insecurity issues putting those Intel ones on they were just as good and sometimes better than 3rd party coolers.

I used to have cooling problems...  Turned out my third-party cooling system was just too lazy!  😁

Not much surprises or shocks me these days BUT I’m absolutely astounded that you don’t have a Lava Lamp. Incredible and shocking to say the least.
