    Budget Android phone?

    I usually stick to ASUS Zenfone for low budget ones. I had the 2, the 3, and now have the 4. The 4 was more expensive but worth it to me. If I had a small budget like $300, I would get a different brand, probably from Costco. If you're interested in a Zenfone you can go check them out at Memory...

    Matebook X Pro?

    Did anyone here get a Matebook X Pro, and if so, what do you think so far? I got mine a couple of months ago. I do like it, very light, yet feels sturdy. The fingerprint scan/power button works great, good battery life, comfortable keyboard. The touchpad is good, but even after playing with its...

    what is your go-to motherboard brand?

    ASUS, because of experience and comfort. I've used their utilities for a long time. I tried an ASRock earlier this year and really didn't like their fan control options (or lack thereof) in the utility they provided. Just one example. MSI would be my second go-to brand.

    what is your go-to motherboard brand?

    Didn't have problems with both ASRock's rebates I submitted this year and received in September. It does take a while, like most of them.

    Leduc for a young family? Other Areas?

    Hi. I'm in Sherwood Park, on the South side on 2 acres, in city limits. Beautiful area. Have no issues with the gas refineries, they are quite far from where I'm at. St-Albert is a beautiful city, but I never liked the commute to Edmonton. From what you wrote, I would recommend you check...

    Best clean for plexi?

    Thanks for all the feedback and suggestions everyone. The bleach didn't do much. In the end, a toothbrush with dish soap did the trick.

    It's the plexi on EKWB stuff, reservoir, pump top, GPU and CPU.

    carpal tunnel syndrome on your keyboard hand

    I developed CP in my right wrist in the late '90s playing too much Starcraft. I'm right handed. I couldn't touch a mouse the pain was so bad. I learned to use my left hand for the mouse. PITA. But to this day, still use my left hand for the mouse. Whenever I work on someone's computer and use my...

    Best clean for plexi?

    Hi... what would your suggestion be to clean plexi tinted by coloured cooling liquid? Is there a product available, or is dish soap good enough? I don't want to scratch it either.

    USD MailIn Rebate

    So I got my $10 USD mail-in rebate for a computer part I bought... it's on one of those temporary/gift card "credit card". How can I use this? Without knowing the exact amount to charge in CAD, not sure how I can use this card, online or retail.

    EconoFil Filament

    Yes, kuddos for them with following through. I totally will try their new stock. Without the stringing and breaking issues, it's still a pretty good value.

    EconoFil Filament

    Wondering if anyone has experience with the EconoFil PLA filament from filaments.ca? I bought 8 spools at $15.95 each, just enough to get free shipping. The plastic breaks easily, usually by itself at the beginning or end of a job, while pulling from the extruder through the enclosure. It did...

    3D Printing sub?

    I might not be seeing it, is there a section for 3D printing discussions? Or is that considered off-topic for this site? Do we have a Canadian resource for 3D Printing to talk about stuff?

    1080ti price beginning to drop?

    Thanks for the link, never heard of them either... and honestly, any computer website that doesn't know how to spell motherboard correctly won't get my money even if stuff is cheaper. :biggrin:

    1080ti price beginning to drop?

    Wanted to buy an ASUS ROG STRIX 1080ti OC and Newegg.ca was the cheapest a couple of weeks ago at $1,004. I asked to be notified when they received more in stock, got the notification last week, and it was listed at $959. I hesitated because I wondered if it would drop more... but no one else...
