    Best Value 2TB NVMe PCI 3.0 SSD?

    I need a 2TB NVMe SSD to replace my main drive. I'd like it to have a high probability of lasting at least 5 years. Mostly business use, some gaming but nothing serious where the speed difference matters. Occasionally copying large files of about 5GB between drives, but waiting an extra few...

    Help finding compatible ECC RAM for B450M-A

    Aegir Thanks for your reply once more! ImDisk looks pretty nifty too, I appreciate the link. I'm curious what you think of this study? It is a little old, but seems mostly relevant still... Though it does appear to support what you've...

    Help finding compatible ECC RAM for B450M-A

    Aegir haha awesome, people like you are why I keep coming back to HF for so many years. Okay so my important data is, as you seemed to have guessed, pictures and videos. I did not realize corruption would only be a tiny change on pixels! That makes it entirely insigifnicant. I do play games...

    Help finding compatible ECC RAM for B450M-A

    I do understand your reasoning. My desire for ECC stems from wanting to avoid possible data corruption. Perhaps I'm thinking about it incorrectly but if there's data corruption in a file stored in memory, then when written to the disk the corruption would follow as well. Is that correct to you...

    Help finding compatible ECC RAM for B450M-A

    Ahhh I see, I'm quite new to ECC memory. So likely these failed because of being registered...which I see is denoted by RDIMM as opposed to UDIMM. Thanks Blue Fox, I will continue researching.

    Help finding compatible ECC RAM for B450M-A

    Hi All, I have an Asus Prime B450M-A mobo w/ a Ryzen 3600. I'd really like to run ECC memory, but I'm having trouble finding 16GB sticks that are compatible. Ideally I'd like 2x16GB of ECC, with the option to upgrade to 4x16GB ECC. Currently I'm using 1x16GB of CORSAIR Vengeance LPX DDR4...

    Sandy good enough?

    For gaming, you will get more putting the money into a better video card over a newer gen cpu.

    Backup software...

    I have the same question as you. This link has been helpful. I'm debating just getting Acronis of the best paid apps from what I see. Going to try AOMEI Backupper first. I wouldn't use Windows Backup. It's known to arbitrarily stop letting you create backups.

    Any amd cpu worth gaming on?

    There's no doubt that Intel processors are more powerful. However for a practical gamer playing on one monitor, a good AMD cpu is all you need. For a higher end option and wanting three monitors, you'ld be much better going off Intel. You bought the wrong processor. The FX-4100 is terrible...

    Netflix HD and 1080p mkv on an Athlon 64 3800+ X2 or any Socket 939

    Has anyone successfully ran Netflix in HD on a socket 939 setup? I have an Athlon 64 3800+ X2 and it handles 720p video just fine if dxva is enabled, but when it comes to Netflix HD it just stutters till no end. It usually cannot do 1080p reliably either, though some content will play fine and...

    Swiftkey is great. Learns how you write and actually saves a lot of time by predicting the next word you're wanting to write.

    The Samsung Galaxy S III is officially the worlds most powerful smartphone

    Sorry, that doesn't refute the benchmarks by Geekbench themselves. I also made no claims about speed. Nothing to do with how I feel. I don't have a GS3 and don't plan to get one. I simply dislike misinformation.

    iPhone 5 is officially the worlds most powerful phone

    Except that Google is awesome and instead of raping consumers, sells the Galaxy Nexus for $350 straight up! And no they're not the exact same, but many are indeed similar.
