  • I'm thinking of no color filter for the top 1st layer, only luminance info. The 2nd layer consists of only RB color filter array. Sigma can look at it as YUV or YCrCb kind of processing. Might ...
  • 1) Sigma can refine their older X3 technology. Use BSI technique. Have ADC embedded on the chip. Use gold wiring instead of aluminum or copper. True 14bit output. 2) Totally change the way image is ...
  • For the longest time, many apple laptop users have been complaining about the thermal design of macbook/pro casing. As far as I can remember since that plastic 13" macbook running coreduo. Apple ...
  • What if the new mac pro is worse than the trash can? Then which is going to take the crown? LOL!
  • Thanks for the recommendation. Just got the U9s today. :-D
  • Thanks for the recommendation, just got them, the LPX 4x8GB :-D
  • Looking at the dimensions of the U9s: The next challenge for me is to look for ram that has low profile heatsink, height less than 33mm. Currently looking at Kingston FuryX series 3200MHz 4x8GB. ...
  • The GD07 case only has max height for 138mm cooler.  The Noctua U9s looks like a good fit, but I have to compromise a little with the overclocking headroom. :-)
  • You need to post pictures from the F1.2s lenses as evidence to complete & convince this conversion process. LOL! Pictures say a thousand words! :-D I wish Oly can make a 9mm or 10mm F1.2 next for ...
  • Those branded computers usually have some sort of notches and kinks that won't fit off-the-shelves parts. I tore up one of those Dell and realized it's difficult to reuse their cases. What would be ...
  • It's due to space constraints. I have a clearance of about 13" height, good for horizontal chassis. The computer is a work horse not for entertainment. Oh man, I never thought flatbed taller cases ...
  • So you leave the top cover open? It's strange that nobody is making a flatbed chassis that is taller to accommodate taller tower coolers. You're overclocking it 4.4GHz? With the U9S how far do you ...
  • I read up those closed loop liquid coolers. Majority users claim the pump always fail very quickly, better off using a traditional HSF. That's why I'm not looking at liquid coolers. Even the ...
  • I have a tendency to keep dropping discs in vertical mounting position. Butter fingers me. LOL!
  • Created discussion thread Looking for huge HTPC case
    I scout around and realized that flatbed case that can accommodate big CPU heatsink are hard to find. I'm looking at something that can fit a Cryorig R1 or the Noctua 15 (about 168mm height). So ...
  • You have wallets, purses, small bags, medium bags, large bags, large luggage, etc etc Small cars, medium size cars, big cars, luxurious cars, small trucks, mid size trucks, etc etc. Do huge 10 ...
  • Created discussion thread Slow vs slow
    A match made in heaven, the camera meets the subject LOL! Well what can I say? It's a slow day for me. :-D
  • I'm guessing 1, 2, 3 are either xtrans or bayer. No. 4 looks very different. So if 1, 2 & 3 are bayer, then 4 is xtrans. Or the other way round, 1, 2 & 3 are xtrans, then no.4 is bayer.
  • And I'm skeptical about his question too. A macbook runs on m3/m5 or the newer variant of those in i5/i7 1.4GHz processor, on a 12" screen. He/She wants to play games and photoshop/LR on this? ...
  • I wish Oly can make a 10mm or 9mm F1.2 next! :-D
