    Import passwords into Firefox?

    It should be pretty clear that I fully realize that, and didn't say otherwise. My comment there, in context was that it was the closest thing to what he wanted but removing such an error-prone setup. I don't care if my passwords are on someone else's server. The risk involved, someone or someone...

    Import passwords into Firefox?

    The closest thing to that other than having a risky/error prone setup like you're running into, is the KeePass database on Dropbox or OneDrive. That grants you a standard format, ~30 days of backup through the cloud provider, and as much security as you can while still gaining redundancy. To...

    Import passwords into Firefox?

    If you install the old version of Firefox that you had, it could have saved that addons data in Firefox's sync storage. Chance of it. Once you get that out, might be a way to get it into Firefox's Lockbox. I use KeePass on OneDrive and it works well, no reliance on any browser addons.. plenty of...

    Ryzen 5900X overclocking help

    I can't read the scores in that screenshot.

    Is VR even worth it?

    Idiotic. Even if you've tried VR but don't own a headset, you honestly don't have enough time with one to form a worthwhile opinion. Furthest thing from a gimmick. Just got my Quest last month and its immersion can't be matched and it's the future. If there's a criticism for VR, well you clearly...

    Biostar Racing X370-GTN ITX AM4

    While I've had a lot less issues with my Asus X470-i, I found a common issue between both my Biostar and Asus boards worth posting here. When I switched CPU fans from one to another I found the new fan would stop responding to the settings in the UEFI. I resolved it on the Asus by touching the...

    Ryzen 2700 vs 2700x in overclocking?

    80C and 90F? Big difference. I never see 80C on my system, as noted 75C is the max I've ever encountered. I'm using a Node202. The C1 is a good cooler. It's far too tall for my case. The C7 is a lot smaller, but I have the all copper edition which helps a little bit.

    Ryzen vs Coffee Lake

    I'm seeing up to 30% in my Java and .Net projects. It may not affect everyone but it affects me, and I wouldn't recommend people buy Intel until it's fixed.. you never know when you need your IO performance. Maybe you're just gaming today.... but it's a general purpose machine. If you just want...

    Ryzen vs Coffee Lake

    That was true until Intel Meltdown/Spectre. With Meltdown perf penalties in my work I see 30% performance reduction. For gamers, ya they don't even matter, just wasting time.. sure, great, anything works for them, including a Playstation.

    Ryzen vs Coffee Lake

    No, I also bought an 1800X alongside my 1700. I bought a 2700X on release too, using it now. Wouldn't come near a 8700K that shit is garbage with the Meltdown flaw.

    First AMD build in 12 years.

    Yup I got the Asus X470-i and I've almost always gone Asus but I'm noticing a little slacking on their part. I had very few great options for X470 mITX but I might go Gigabyte next time. GB has been growing fast and is very close to Asus' market cap if not overtaken by now.

    Ryzen 2700 vs 2700x in overclocking?

    I hear you. Ya I know, I'm not a fan of downclocking/volting. If you want something lesser than what you bought... buy a 65W TDP CPU next time. :D I've bought both and if forced to buy 65 or 105 TDP chips, I'd go 65. While the entire performance curve is going to be different, if the max boost...

    Ryzen 2700 vs 2700x in overclocking?

    You won't find me moving to 8C CFL, no matter how many points it eeks out in a synthetic benchmark. The slowdown in my work (.Net compilation, heavy IO usage) is ~30% for me with Meltdown. Supposedly this 8C revision fixes it in silicon but I'm not going to rush out to buy one when my 1700...

    Ryzen 2700 vs 2700x in overclocking?

    Just so it's clear, there's a contradiction between buying the 2700 to overclock it and the reasoning that it's the chip that "won't make you sweat". Overclocking at 4.1GHz+ 24/7 is going to produce more heat than just using a stock 2700X that gets to downclock the 90% of the time you don't...

    Ryzen 2700 vs 2700x in overclocking?

    Just an update on my 2700X, I'm having no issues at all with it in my (properly configured) mITX case with a Cryorig C7 Cu on a Strix X470-i. Max temp in real world gaming usage is 75C max, sustaining 4GHz+ during that. It's quiet in desktop usage as well. I decided to go for it because they are...
