So every since the Lenovo e570 was purchased the built in Wifi has been spotty at best and usually just doesn't work. I read stories of the onboard antennas being disconnected from the Wifi card straight from the factory, so I popped the access cover and sure enough one of the little antenna wires with the IPEX type connectors wasn't connected to the M.2 wireless card. Worse yet, the connector for it is totally cratered. Like someone used undue force trying to get it to snap onto the wireless card. It will never go on it.

I absolutely cannot find the set of Wifi antennas with leads for this laptop. I know that they run from the area where the card is all the way up through the hinges and into the bezel around the LCD, so that's going to be fun to replace. But I'd really like to get the onboard Wifi working...

Default What are you up to?

evildre, happen to have a LGA 1150 CPU sitting around? Wife and I are going to rebuild our desktop and I'd rather use a LGA 1150 instead of a LGA 1155 CPU.

So do you ever get something started unintentionally, and then shortly thereafter completely fucking regret it immensely? I did.

Nope -- only other CPUs I have here at home are LGA 775 (C2D E6850) and LGA 1155 (2500k/2600k), and they're all in use. Apart from the assorted 1366 CPUs I found at work, we don't have anything else in the HEDT space. All staff apart from developers and content creators have laptops, and the meeting rooms are equipped with either Intel NUC or Gigabyte Brix boxes, so desktop CPUs are nowhere to be found.

Also -- bad news on the monitors The E570's is completely fucked, as you're aware, but it appears that the E560's is as well. No picture whatsoever, and yes, I know how to look at a laptop display with a bad backlight to see if it works. Sorry dude

I get the distinct feeling I won't be sleeping today.

I got an i5-2400 from work. Not great but it will pair well with a HD6850.

Are there any good video cards that won't tear my wallet a new asshole right now?

I'd like to upgrade from my GTX 970, but not if I have to drop a thousand fuckin' dollars to do it.

I went from 970 to 1070 and am happy so far. Did really well in Borderlands 2. Didn't notice anything that would have counted as a performance improvement in The Witcher, since it's an 11-year-old game ... but I can run The Witcher 2 on Ultra (it looks really good). The 1070 Ti is even better if you're not running 4k.

In other news, the "Your site has been flagged for malware" emails from GoDaddy are pissing me off hard. The files that were enumerated in the email are either default WordPress files that haven't been modified since the last security update, or plugin files that haven't been modified in 1 to 3 years. So, unless, someone is manipulating timestamps on the Linux host, these are false alarms

Appreciate the recommendation, but they're either all sold out or around $1,000.
