Re: New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

I was thinking and I explained it to you. I was just trying to make conversation. The thing that stuck out was when you blurted out 3 is cheaper than 2. I was just making a comment. Not doubting...

Well for those with Aura I settled on a brightness setting of 71. This give my reservoir plenty of red but it is not blasting out. The same with the video card and the Raystorm CPU block.

Re: New Netgear CM500V Modem with Telephone coming!

I was trying to get you to think. When I posed the question "How can 3 things be cheaper than 2?" I wasn't doubting that they were. I was implying the only reason 3 is cheaper than 2 is because...

Re: Ivy Bridge Xeon E5-1650 V2

I don't use IXTU to change anything. It is good for seeing all your processor details on the right and setting it up for viewing temps on all cores. It is the most reliable software for monitoring...

Thumbs down Re: Samsung Magician.

Two thumbs down that Magician is a certified load of horseshit. :mad: This software hasn't worked in well over 2 years. Even for the new 960 Pro the firmware ISO doesn't work either.

Re: Asus ROG-STRIX-GTX1080-O8G-11GBPS
