  1. Who says its not a regular consumer product ? It's offered to any consumer out there. I dont know about all enthusiasts, but I defnitely count myself as one and warranty is an important factor for me.
  2. The best part is this: "Unlike Intel's standard processors, the Core i9-9900KS only carries a one-year warranty, as opposed to the standard three-year warranty period we're accustomed to." https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-special-edition-core-i9-9900ks-dollar513-launch-october-30-price-specifications-performance It's pretty obvious that cpu cannot sustain this for extended periods and silicon will degrade faster than even any average 9900k, so they release it with limited to one year warranty. Nothing says it more when you lack confidence into your own products.
  3. Probably because Noctua high end coolers were often comparable to the medium grade AIOs and provided an alternative. One that did not introduce sound of water pump and did not create a risk of leakage. If Noctua cant handle that stock, than its something wrong with the chip, not the cooler.
  4. Yes, its quite surprising. I have abysmally slow download in Poland, far below the up limit of the bandwidth while all my buddies in US had no issues with it. I wonder how servers and routing is being handled.
  5. Yeah, I have the same. Drops to 20 kB/s, stays mostly around 200 - 300 kB/s instead of 1300 kB/s. It's just unable to fully saturate bandwidth and keep download speeds constant, instead constant drops prolong the process. Wish I could switch to steam. In the past updater was an advantage, now its just a ball and chain.
  6. CM. Thats an older model. I didnt bother with updating, this one is good enough for me.
  7. Upgraded 3440X1440p AOC AG352UCG to Philips Momentum 43" Qled panel with HDR1000 and Freesync. While still tweaking, I am amazed by the quality of this upgrade:
  8. Japan surrendered because Soviet Union rolled Japanese forces in Manchuria like a carpet, creating a threat to Hokkaido and because U.S. eventually agreed to preserve Imperial rule, though reduced to a symbolic as we know. It's clear from the existing records of events that happened during Cabinet meetings in August 1945, what influenced decisions and what did not. It's really hard to support such statement. By breaking someone's back one usually refers to a state where to opponent is unable to wage a war or continue. Japan's ability to conduct offensive operations was effectiv
  9. Yes, I know. I actually was mistaken. The museum is dedicated not to one but six pilots: Cant name all of them unfortunately.
  10. Ups, forgot about this one: And if there are any fans: \ Yamato FTW!
  11. So regarding seeing Japanese aircraft. During my trip to Japan in recent days, I've visited a couple museums, namely Yūshūkan Museum in Tokio, Aichi Museum of Flight in Nagoya, Kure Maritime Museum in Kure and Shiden Kai Museum in Ainan-no (Ehime). From those I think the best experience I;ve had in Kure Maritime and Shiden Kai Museums, while first one has incredible exposition including 1/10th scale IJN Yamato, the other is very quiet and located so far from civilization that rarely anybody visits it which makes it additional achievement. Shiden Kai museum is dedicated to killed in combat ace
  12. I think you missed the point Zach by dumbing down entire event into a LAN party, which was not the case. Back in the day Warbirds could run even on 56k dial-up bandwidth Modem (though broadband was preferable for obvious reasons) just fine despite a considerable number of people online (which is why people on Con flew with and against people not participating in the event in the same arena). Something no flight sim today can replicate. In this we went down from a flights of hundreds of people to dozens in old Il-2 and further to combat of a couple of guys in skirmishes which effectively is wha
  13. In a certain way it shrinked. I feel like community has changed as interests did. But you also have people less involved in getting and flying together, the squadrons also seem less organized. If there is something I can bring up that is indicative of late 90s Flight Sim community, it is the Warbirds Conventions organized by Interactive studios (or whatever were they called back then) in U.S. where you had not dozens but hundreds of people travelling from across the world (Australia, France, Canada, you name it) to meet up for a few days and fly together. People were taking compute
  14. Finally Pee Fiddy One. Now that's a nice DD.
  15. 3rd Reich up until mid 1944 had at its disposal resources from almost an entire Europe. And its production capacity. Yeah, especially Britain and USSR ... desperately seeking U.S. help past 1942. Yes you can. For designing vehicles their country had no resources for and their industry had no means to produce in sufficient quantity.
