    Portable Air Conditioners? .... recommendations for super quiet?

    But it defeats the purpose because you're still bringing in air from outside the room. The whole point of a dual hose portable air conditioner is so that the room you cool in the air doesn't move out of the room and no new air is required to be brought into the room.

    Portable Air Conditioners? .... recommendations for super quiet?

    Furnace fan doesn't solve the problem. The problem is that the cold air in the room is getting sucked out of the room and being replaced by warmer air. If you have a portable AC with dual hoses, you are just re-using the cold air in the room and that's more efficient. I'm not saying portable...

    Portable Air Conditioners? .... recommendations for super quiet?

    No the reason for 2 hoses is to maintain the pressure in the room. So you bring in outdoor air to run over the unchilled liquid to cool it down and then that becomes hot air and you exhaust it back out. Then when the liquid is cold, you bring in air from the room, cool it and spit it back in...

    Portable Air Conditioners? .... recommendations for super quiet?

    There isn't a lot of new tech and everyone is shying away from the good design choices. Ideally you want something with a dual hose system, insulated exhaust hose (like seriousl, WTF is up with the real cheap plastic hoses), and if the above is true a compressor that is quieter. Many portable...

    Does 144Hz still have tearing?

    The general rule of thumb is you don't need it if your fps are lower than your monitor refresh rate UNLESS you notice screen tearing and want to fix that.

    B550 Mobo Prices Confirmed To Be HIgher Than B450

    I'm a little sad... was looking forward to grabbing B550 over X570 with the though that the they would be somewhere between B450 and X570 price wise, even if you miss out on some of the "extras" that many X570 boards come with. I just want something that over-clocks well and has the connectors...

    Does 144Hz still have tearing?

    The point of vsync is to match your GPU output to the refresh rate of your monitor. You can get screen tearing ANY time the start and end of a frame from your GPU does not sync with the monitor. So vsync has to work in even multiples of your refresh rate to ensure you are sync'd up. If you...

    What cables do I need?

    Just a bit of added information, the only cables the motherboard will typically come with are SATA data cables (for hooking up things like your SSD/HDD) and (if these things still exist) a SLI bridge for dual graphics cards. Bonus: a small speaker (sometimes) for the POST beep when you boot...

    Running ultrawide 1440p requirements?

    it's crazy to me how when I got my GTX 780 I was running nvidia surround no problem back in the day (3x1080p @ 60hz) and nothing has really changed i.e. still need one of the most expensive GPUs to run high settings. That said, I know it's not a 100% fair comparison as you're also getting more...

    Running ultrawide 1440p requirements?

    Been thinking about upgrading and was hoping (provided I still have enough money in a few months) to swap out my 1080p @60hz monitors. What are some thoughts on the GPU horsepower required for gaming on a 3440 x 1440 above 60 fps? I'm not looking for 144 or 120hz, somewhere in the 75-100 hz...

    Looking for gaming build feedback

    For budget reasons I started looking at cutting out the nvme drive. Thoughts with respect to this being a gaming and browsing rig? After some further research, I can't see any benefit to nvme for playing video games over a 2.5" SSD.

    Triple monitor set up

    ^ short answer: Yes, you can run different refresh rates and resolutions on each monitor. You do NOT want to do this with nvidia surround for gaming on 3 monitors at once.
