Discussion Dear Newegg, unloading last gen high-end components in bundles on people who win your GPU lottery kinda sucks.

Upvotes

So I finally scored on a newegg shuffle after months of trying. Now I may have trouble garnering sympathy given I was privileged enough to actually buy a 30 series GPU but let me explain.

I landed a brand new Gigabyte Aorus Master RTX 3070, and I am beyond over the moon about it. However, the only thing putting a damper on these proceedings is that it came bundled with a $250 last gen intel motherboard, which does me no good with my 3rd gen Ryzen system. The rest of my system is perfectly fine for my needs, and I'm not taking the bundle bait to make an upgrade that I don't need. Now I have my 3070 (Yay!) but I also have to deal with selling a useless-to-me motherboard that I'd be lucky to only lose $100 on judging by ebay sold listings. Apparently Z590 boards aren't a hot commodity since 12th gen came out.

Newegg is just making a shitty situation for consumers even shittier by unloading high end last gen components bundled in with 30 series cards. I understand if they want to make these lotteries inconvenient for scalpers and miners, or even if they just want to boost profit margins on the few GPUs they have. But don't use it to unload old inventory on your customers. At least let me choose an additional product that makes sense for my rig, I wouldn't have had a problem if I could have chosen a higher end board that is actually compatible with my CPU.

I feel lucky to have gotten the GPU, but c'mon newegg, by the time I get rid of the useless motherboard I'll be close to where I might as well have paid scalper prices.

/End Rant

TLDR: Got picked in Newegg shuffle, had to buy a useless $250 motherboard to get the GPU. Kinda miffed.

Question Dynamic color temperature on PCs?

Upvotes

Google home devices have a feature that adapts the color temperature and brightness to the current lighting of the room, something I've found absolutely amazing. Does anyone know of a way to do this for a standard PC (Linux or Windows)?

Edit: looking specifically for a way to do this for my monitor, something that dynamically adjusts the color balance / temperature of the display to match the room I'm in

Has anyone successfully flashed the Asus ROG Strix V2 bios to the 3080 Gaming Z Trio LHR?

I can't find a verified LHR Suprim X bios so I'm looking to go with the Asus Strix V2 instead in order to increase my power limit

Tech Support Need Diagnostic Help

Upvotes

I am currently having issues running certain games. When I try and launch the games my computer force restarts without me pressing any of the power buttons. Sometime it does make it through the launch screen but will usually crash eventually on another loading screen or something.

Games it crashes on:

Apex Legends (Basically everytime)

Squad (everytime)

Forza Horizon 5 (Sometimes)

Back 4 Blood (Everytime)

Smite (Sometimes)

Games it has never crashed on:

Rocket League

Valorant

Any indie game I play

Teamfight Tactics

Destiny 2

I have tried replacing the PSU, and reformatting my boot drive with a clean windows install. Neither of which have seemed to work. My PC specs are as follows:

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

GIGABYTE 3070 Ti GAMING

ROG STRIX B550-F Gaming

16GB of G-SKILL TridentZ Neo

A 230 GB Kingston SSD (Boot Drive)

A Samsung 970 EVO 1TB

and a 2TB HDD

If anyone has any ideas as to what this could be I would greatly appreciate the help.

Question Does this V1 Tech's heatsinks?

Upvotes

Getting a 500gb WD SN850 SSD for game development so expecting a good amount of heat. V1 Tech's heatsinks are really awesome but their design doesnt seem too effective.

Heres one of their heatsinks if any one with good heatsink knowledge can just tell me if it looks good or not. According to the site, it's aluminum alloy, comes with thermal pads and mounting hardware. Also has argb lighting so not sure if that'll be an actual heat issue.

Hardware Long distance WIFI antenna recommendations

Upvotes

So, I'd like a WIFI antenna that reaches at the very least 650 meters (that's the exact distance from my house to my aunt's house, who has fiber unlike me, due to company's logistics or whatever) so I guess it would have to be a little bit more since there are trees and other houses and stuff.

Recommendations?

Question Can I Clear my Drive of all and Only my Personal Files and Keep the Necessary/System Files?

Upvotes

So basically I'm tryna get my PC to look as if it was new (with storage/folders). I want to remove all personal files/folders from both my drives (like steam files/folders, epic games files/folders, etc.) without deleting any system files or files that I need (maybe software for my PC parts like the RGB software?). I'm doing this cuz I want unnecessary files gone and I want the folder hierarchy reset so I could organize my shit better so if there's any other way that basically does the same just let me know.
