    Thanks to Apple Your next BMW Might Only Have Heated Seats for 3 Months

    Hey listen , the BMW turn signals are obviously pay-to-use (and no-one pays). :ROFLMAO:

    US successfully tests a Laser Weapon that can Destroy Aircraft Mid-Flight

    I think about 'stimulated emission' all the time !! Bahaha -------- The free electron laser has the best theoretical conversion rate, and is tunable to near gamma-ray frequencies. frequency=energy and 'frequency variablity' means penetration. - The problem is a physical thing. We don't have...

    Basic watercooling questions

    Hee hee... ~500 days since this rig started. Time for an update on this. This rig has processed several petabytes of video. I don't use the peltier cooler units, it doesn't need it. There is no evidence of galvanic corrosion.The glycol is still almost clear.I have not done anything to...

    Effect of bent socket pins on functionality and stability.

    I've got a comment about this. Bent/non connected pins are not a fatal issue if said rig survives a proper break-in / benchmarking, but you can lose stuff. I run a watercooled dual xeon gold rig, socket 3647....socket 'P' is very sensitive to mounting stabilities and pressures. When I got my...

    Xeon Gold 6254 Hot Potato?

    I can't really speak to the whole 1u/2u thang, I don't know. Mine runs in a caselabs magnum STH-10, which is basically a 6.37 u.... LOL ---- 1u seems sketchy to me, even with my mid-tier cpu's, let alone your big ones.

    Thermal paste Silliness.

    Wait a sec. Op's name does not check out. You would think someone with 'honegod' as a name knew about the importance of lapping (or 'honing', haha) Just jokes, =) (y)

    Thermal paste Silliness.

    I can make you a video how to do this. A 29.5" vacuum pump is 700$. A vacuum chamber to fit the mobo etc. is a couple hundred bux if you make it. gain: .001 % Don't fuckin bother. Listen. Degassing is a legitimate thing.It's crucial in 'potted-for-space' stuff obviously, and even for...

    Thermal paste Silliness.

    I've dealt with thermal interfaces for 35 years. I also own a high vacuum pump capable of degassing TIM's. Degassing TIM's is essentially irrelevant. Meeho is 100% correct.This is purely academic. Surface smoothness and surface flatness are FAR more important. The repeaters they use under the...

    ahhh....apologies.Never noticed that 'benchmark' bit.... I'll run it for yah later when I get home.

    Xeon Gold 6254 Hot Potato?

    Sure : https://valid.x86.fr/c597h3 I'm running dual 6144's (8c/16t each) so it's a lot lower core count.

    Xeon Gold 6254 Hot Potato?

    I have a dual CPU watercooled Xeon Gold setup. I think you better send me those so I can double check for you. :ROFLMAO:

    Microsoft Tries Sneaking Telemetry Into Windows 7 "Security-Only" Update

    Oh I do. Just because the automatic update I got only tried to extort money , doesn't mean I don't understand. It's a positive and negative thing.....right now I'm firmly in the negative side because Microsoft ransomware is not cool. That does not mean their automatic updates have not helped me...
