The worst part of that is, 10 years back, that would have been considered a top spec gaming PC. You could have bought a Ryzen 5 with a Vega 11 gpu for less than $400, have some change, and still gotten a much better gaming PC over all.

Holy shit. This is the build I have on my current rig today. I purchased a Ryzen 5 2400G with 8GB-2666x2 system because I only had around $272 to spend and I was blown away by how much I can play without a dedicated graphics card. Now, the same build runs a 4GB-2133x2 kit because the original kit died but now has a GTX 1070 inside and it's still a capable machine to this day, only the 8GB ram is the worst part of the build.

A 4670k was a pretty typical recommendation for a mid-end gaming CPU back in 2013-2014. It's just about usable for gaming even now - I'm only about to replace mine from back then in a few weeks because my typical gaming is very heavy on CPU! 16GB RAM perhaps overkill for the time. A 1030, however, would only be equivalent to a 650-ti.

The power lead with a ground cable is a Japanese-style cable. Most outlets in Japan are ungrounded, but some will have a ground 'pole' sticking out to which you can connect the separate ground lead. This is required for outlets that e.g. AC units connect to. Why this PSU came with a Japanese-style power lead is... weird.

I was thinking the problem was the mouse sensing the mouse pad since it had a lot of patterns and stuff on it. I've had my mouse do that with my old mouse pad that had a lot of graphical designs on it but when I switched to a plain black mouse pad I haven't had any tracking issues at all.

The disk drive size bays in the front of older cases can actually come in pretty handy when you wanna adapt an older case to a more modern demand, for example i have a Corsair Carbide 540 air, which doesn't have USB on the front panel, and i was able to put a little panel with multiple ports, including 2 usb C's there for use with my VR headset :D

back in the day in the US, many electrical sockets only had two slots. To plug a grounded cable into them, you would get a 3-to-2 adapter that had a little wire hanging out that was mean to be inserted under the screw holding the faceplate to the wall.

That kind of ground was used on very old houses that only had double prong and needed ground added later. It is often hooked to a screw on the outlet. If you've ever seen those 2 prong to 3 prong adapters, they have a little metal tab which you are supposed to screw to the screw in the outlet.

11:32 That’s one of the standards in Japan. Many outlets here have a ground pin mount under the outlets where you can screw those loose ground wires onto. Of course we do also have the 3 pin connectors, but not on everything.

@Jonny That's why I stated "Used to be common". 5 years ago I bought and old 1930s Sears Craftsman bungalow which I had fully remodeled. Still had the old, disconnected and knob wiring inside the walls along with a mix of newer wiring and old cloth insulated wiring. Was going to replace it all anyway and I did pay extra to have the conduit style and metal boxes installed with proper outlets. This is the last home I will ever own so I wanted it to be done just right.

Jonny 3 aylar önce
@The Doctor It can be, but not always. Before the standard was metal outlet boxes but now blue plastic ones have become standard. The old metal boxes were always grounded (assuming the installation was up to code). The center screw can still be grounded though, depending on the outlet design. Some outlets connect the ground to the screws, but some don't have that metal tab to connect them. These days, the answer is a solid "maybe" as to whether or not the screws of an outlet/faceplate are truly grounded. I'd recommend always testing them with a multimeter before assuming that it does have a ground connection.

Used to be common here in the US as well for the center screw that holds the faceplate on to be grounded. Not sure if that's the case anymore.

11:35 That's actually pretty interesting. When I was growing up we lived in an old colonial era house with outdated wiring. Like when I was a kid there were still a few cloth wrapped wires in the basement thankfully those were since replaced. But to this day a lot of the outlets are still 2 pin with the ground being the central screw that holds in the face plate of the outlet. This looks a lot like the 2 - 3 pin adapters we had all over the place that needed to be screwed into the outlet box

Just for the heck of it, I've bought an HP wave (Japan Open box) here that came with the exact same grounding prong.

It came with Japanese manuals (LIterally a book, No joke) and all the bells and whistles intact. If i'm not mistaken, I later got an Omen too which came with the same end plug.

that actually make much more sense then, as a mainlander Chinese, judging by the traditional Chinese and the kinda wired wording on the box, that power supply is most likely made in Taiwan or South East Asia, other than mainland China (Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese undergo the same grammar system, but sometimes have different wording for the same senario). it would make sense if that Japanese standard, lots of things in Taiwan are Japanese standard.

@HappyBeezerStudios - by Lord_Mogul I dont know how it works with the tech sector, but when it comes to clothes the factories and plants used for all the big fashion brands either simultaneously produce knockoff shit or are placed right next to the factories that produce the fake stuff. So there's a lot of overlap and sharing of info/resources when it comes to producing this stuff.

@Pass Into Grace Golden Yearning Sometimes I feel that people run around and continue running the factors after hours and that is how we get those knockoff things. Or they just cheaply buy machines meant for disposal, but keep them in use to produce other stuff.

You mean the vendor or a manager at the vendor sold them directly. China has many brands based around products rejected by the companies that ordered them. Could be typos on a branded shirt, could be unsafe furniture, all manner of things.

In Mexico there was a time when you could buy converters to turn a 3 prong plug to a 2 prong electrical plug. This converters had a small wire with metal terminal hanging from the converter, so you could ground the adaptor to the screw in the electrical outlet faceplate. However it has been at least 10 years since I saw one.

The grounding plug is used in Japan. Japan also uses type A outlets like we do in Canada/US. They probably just used a JP plug instead of having separate stock of US plugs. EDIT: The writing on the box is also Japanese instead of Chinese, so probably just a JP power supply Wish bought in bulk.

All the characters used in Japanese writings are all Chinese characters with varying degrees of modification. > Hiragana characters were kanji and is now crazily written / simplified kanji. > Katakana characters are parts of kanji > Kanji is just the Japanese word for Chinese characters, literally. 漢 (kan) meaning China and 字 (ji) meaning character. There’s no disrespect in explaining that. This whole argument came from me writing a fun fact about Japanese and people who don’t know better telling me I’m wrong. Here in Japan, where I live, I learned such things like the history of the written system whilst getting a degree in the language. It’s literally just basic history regarding Japanese language. Japanese characters are just Chinese characters that have been modified over the years. Check yo facts before your next unintelligible tangent, please.

綾夏⁎ayaka⁎ And also yes, Latin based language speakers, like Italians, can read text from other Latin based languages and derive some meaning from many words… because they’re all based on Latin and use the same character set. Likewise, Japanese and Chinese speakers can derive words or meaning from each other’s languages because the meanings of most Chinese characters don’t change between the two languages. For example, 女 means ‘woman’ in both Japanese and Chinese despite being spoken and written grammatically differently.

​ @jort93z No they don't. We have really good TaoBao (local Aliexpress) with all the good stuff. We have both official stores on there as well as people selling used stuff real cheap, so there is no point for wish to exist here. I could get the same build done with half the price from the used market, or used the same price to get a better CPU (16 core Xeon 5), 32 gigs of ECC RAM, a better GPU (1060 if I get lucky and 1050 if not), a ATX PSU and even a new m.2 drive .

@Artholos I believe it has to do with how humans migrated through the area and eventually ended up in Japan after coming from the mainland. Plus the two countries historically had a lot of contact, not all was friendly, obviously, so Japanese written language sharing traits with Chinese written language even if vastly different in modern times does make some sense. This is also how language developed in Europe largely due to the Romans conquering most of the continent and across the channel into Britain taking Latin with them and influencing the languages of the peoples they conquered.

Those grounding wires are common in Japan. Also that switch has nothing to do whatsoever with PFC (power factor correction). That switch is simply so 1 type of unit can work at different volt levels. PFC is to correct for capacitive/inductive loads to reduce the reactive power, which is essentially wasted power on the grid.

@RuxUnderscore 👍 and, in addition to the 50/60Hz thing, they also run at a nice even 100V. That's just barely within spec for 120V equipment. When I was stationed in Kuwait, the team before us left us some small generators... But that team was from Japan, so the generators were switchable 50/60Hz, but were 100V lol. I guess they needed them for some corded tools they brought since Kuwait operates at 240/415 (red/yellow/blue old British 3 phase standard) and the small transformers for American stuff weren't perfect and I guess they didn't want to burn out their tools, so brought the generators.

I came to say this also. Every computer I’ve built in Japan from 2005 to 2013 all had that kind of ground. There is no ground plug on Japanese outlets. I still use an old one for a monitor after moving to the states.
RuxUnderscore 7 aylar önce
@David Kane Yeah, and some modern outlets in Japan will have a small cover below one of the 2 prongs that will be were you can plug in the ground wire. And I do believe it is possible to get 3 pin outlets as well, but they aren't super common yet. To add, in Japan they have two different power grids separated between North and South, one runs on 50Hz while the other runs on 60Hz. There is a history there that I won't get into on a post.

@Miki Elgrato I have an i5 7400, 1650 graphics card (low profile), I got a 300w low profile PSU with the 8 pins, but something that seems to happen a lot, when I boot up, the machine stalls during post, I get the opening screen, but it stalls from that point until I reset it, and restart it again. I'm seriously thinking it's a PSU issue, and will try a different power supply that the case originally came with, but was only a 4 pin connecter.

6:12 this is exactly what happened to me when I bought a prebuilt computer from a company called Cobratype. They used this exact cooler on an AMD4 motherboard. . . except didn't use the little mounting ring. I shudder to think how they got the cooler to lock on in the first place. Probably used channellock pliers? Among the other sins were that they used 1x16gb stick of RAM instead of 2x8gb for dual channel. They stuck a Ryzen 5 3600 and a RTX 3060 in a Biostar a320mh board . . . anyway, enough ranting.

The reason why SCYTHE is still making those old designed PSU's in 2022 is that they have branded that particular product as "ideal as a replacement power supply for Mini-ITX cases and slim cases, such as systems using various SFF (Small Form Factor / small system) power-saving CPUs, refreshing old generation PC power supplies, etc." Also, the Graphics Card from 玄人志向(Expert Oriented) is a famous brand in Japan. It's a sub-brand of バッファロー(Buffalo) which is also famous for making quality budget computer peripherals. 玄人志向(Expert Oriented) mainly makes budget hardware for PCs.

Home appliances sold here in Brazil in the past, such as microwaves, used to come with this grounding cable. I've never used it, but many products, even big stereos, used to have them, because here the standard was 110v and every outlet were 2 pins standard, we didn't have the third grounding pin like in the US, so it kind of had to come extra to ground the products that needed grounding, but even so, people didn't use to care much about it, they even cut it off sometimes, or left it unplugged. Only recently a new outlet standard started coming with the grounding pin, but even so, many are there only for decoration, they are not truly grounded. Most houses (if not all) were not built with this in mind and no law requires us to properly ground the outlets now. Only new constructions are having this “obligation”. People buy the new outlet for lack of option and put wires only on the left and right pins, the middle one is still ungrounded in most houses, if this is dangerous I don't know, but nobody here cares. And I sure as hell don't either. As long as no one dies, everything is fine.

@bitelaserkhalif 平家boy천궁파워서플라이 there's plenty of options for upgrading, my "gaming" pc for example uses an optiplex I got for free from a friend, upgraded the psu with an adapter to the smaller connector, they make little kits to change the headers for power button, leds, usbs, etc to what you'd find on an aftermarket case and you can even solder your own of both of those if you're handy enough. I have a gtx 1060 in mine and am working on installing a see through monitor screen into the side panel with an rgb led strip on the inside so I can display either data like a resource monitor or a fancy design with the rgb as a backlight if I don't need that info. Been working really great for me.

The real cheat code is buying powerful Xeon workstations for cheap. Enterprises buy them en masse and then sell them en masse for very cheap after they're done with it. A lot of them offer upgradeable paths for the CPU, GPU, and PSU. And sometimes between two different generations as well. They're usually also better designed, and will last longer than normal consumer equipment. Most of the time they usually have a powerful CPU and PSU already in there, so just put in a good GPU and you're good to go

The thing I learnt is to never buy an already made PC build. You should buy all the components and start from scratch to save a lot of money and your PC will be far better than these awful builds. Although if you are buying an already made PC build, make sure you find a good price and research the components of what is inside the PC to see if you are saving money and if the PC is decent for your liking. (I bought an already made PC build and my hard drive was so old that it took multiple minutes just to fully boot it up, I upgraded most parts such as my CPU, GPU and especially that old hard drive to an NVME 500GB within a year. It only came with 8GB ram but I upgraded to a fast 16GB ram)

That style of grounding on the PSU is standard in Japanese apartments and houses. Almost all of the electrical outlets will be 2 prong. Only in rooms for high wattage electronics like the kitchen and laundry room will have a little covered grounding screw for you to attach the grounding wire.
