Those poor Honda Civics though.
I got a lovely Valentine's Day gift.
It's from... my mom, but still. Not going to say no to candy
When you put on a Lochcov avatar (cringe level pizdec/10) for fun and suddenly realise you seem to be the only member who has a Valentine's Day avatar...
Mark my words: I'm going 5.4 swap a Ford Ranger because I can
Anybody heard about the Parkland shooting today?
Spent the usual valentines day alone, got a lot of rendering work done today though, finished off this Miku render for valentines day.
Well good for you
I went on a date last night.
Another valentine's day has past. No, I didn't go on a date, and no, I don't have a girlfriend. I hate all the drama some people make about valentine's day. It's just another day. What did I do then, you ask? I fixed my iPhone 4s screen.
Lol, sounds better than mine. I got into an argument with my girlfriend on the day of love.
That reminds me of something my dad told me. "Post fight sex might be the best sex you can have."
What valentine day? Probably didn't miss anything important.
Minecraft has helped me in school...
We had to design a lighting system in LabVIEW that had a master switch. The lab manual wanted us to use some annoying true/false loop construct thing and everyone was spending a lot of time on it. I just used a couple Boolean logic AND gates and made it in a couple seconds. Professor was fine with it, he said if he wrote the lab manual he would've had us all do it that way.
This is from the teacher, we do make you do such tasks that are to test if you can think out of the box and find better solution, don't tell anyone I let you know this teacher secret.
Criticism to the reboot of Ghostbusters in an nutshell.
I'm pretty sure it wanted us to do it with the loop because that's what we used for our thermostat program
None of the TA's even thought of using any logic gates
Why the hell doesn't America have a V8 Supercars type series? Closes we can get to it that I know of are when Nascar take to road courses twice in the schedule (which is BS, btw).
Maybe I've been spoiled by my whisper-quiet 650ti Boost for the ~3 years that I've owned it, but my current project computer started sounding a bit like a vacuum cleaner when I tried to run BeamNG on it a few days back. Now, I don't know too terribly much about hardware (I'm surprised I was even able to install a GPU myself), but should a GTX 1060 sound that much louder than a GTX 650?
It varies on cooler design. You'll find a large 3 fan cooler will probably sound quieter than a single fan GPU as those fans will turn slower. Also a small amount of placebo effect on the 10xx series cards, ever noticed that the fan is completely silent at idle? The card turns the fan off entirely until the card hits 60c (this does have a minor hysteresis too, I think it doesn't switch off until it's cooled to 45), of course once it engages at 60c it's gonna be turning pretty quick and so that sudden silence followed by racket gives a bit of a placebo into fooling people that the fans are louder than they are.
That said, the 1060 kicks out twice as much heat versus a 650 so it's going to need more aggressive cooling anyway with which will come noise
If it has radial fan, then it is worse than vacuum cleaner, those are useless pieces when it comes to computer cooling, too noisy buggers.
Two fans or three fans is much more quiet in comparison.
Bigger heat sink usually also means quieter fans as radiating surface is bigger, so for same air flow you get more cooling effect, like my CPU cooler, those fans don't really need to ramp up ever, it is way overkill, but it is also quiet setup:
