    XenIneX replied to the thread lowest power video card?.
    That CPU alone turbos to 117w power consumption. Between the CPU's TDP and motherboard power, that PSU has to be right on the line. It's gotta be pushing >80% utilization at peak load. I would absolutely not plug a discrete graphics card into...

    Might be more compelling if a 1500w space heater didn't cost about $20 at your local Walley World. So, it'd take, what, something like a couple years of continuous 24/7 usage to break even on power costs? Realistically, between actual duty...

    XenIneX replied to the thread RTX 2080 Super vs. 3060Ti (OEM).
    RGB > YCbCr 4:4:4 > YCbCr 4:2:0 YCbCr adds colorspace conversions. It's mostly harmless, but why add extra steps? 4:2:0 is chroma subsampling. Not great for computers. Or for anything else.

    So it's about... 20 years behind US military hardware. Gotcha. Nothing DJI does is magic. All of it, the military has been doing for ages; just mostly on fixed-wing hardware. (The Global Hawk has been around for nearly 25 years...) And it's...

    Cool. You know what DJI isn't? Raytheon. Or Lockheed Martin. Or Northrop Grumman. Or one of the handful of other key players in the Military-Industrial Circlejerk. Not all government contracts are equal. National Park Service going lowest...

    China makes the GoPros with wings and toys for children. Everything the Pentagon uses to reach out and touch someone is thoroughly domestic.

    Isopropyl alcohol is generally already a mix of Isopropyl alcohol and water. I wouldn't use anything less than 90% IPA, though 99% is preferable. That said, you can find contact cleaner in your local hardware store.

    Shouldn't effect the rebuild time, as that should be limited by the write speed of the spare. And shouldn't be any less likely to fail rebuild, as you're pulling no less data from no fewer drives. (Okay; maybe one fewer, if the NetApp appliance...

    ...and then less interesting when you realize that you'd actually be running a RAID 05, 06, 050, or 060. The further down that list I get, the more Lovecraftian these things sound. Storage topologies are not supposed to have a Lament...

    Uh...no. Seek time doesn't change. It's not two actuators scrubbing the same platters; each actuator is dedicated to half the platters. So, seek time is the same, but you get double the IOPS and throughput. At the expense, of course, of...

    Bonus points: The previous Exos 2x14 is, like, 2.5x the price of the ordinary single-actuator version. I feel like the window where this makes financial and performance sense is vanishingly small...

    If bending CPU pins or cracking Athlon XP dies is "user error", how could this not be called the same? That said; yes, shit design. Why are the sense pins a tumor dangling off the top? They should be integrated into the plug, in such an...

    I'd still assume it's the potentiometers in the CH Products hardware. There's absolutely no reason why there'd be any interaction between them and the GPU. I'd crack them open and give the pots a squirt of contact cleaner. Or fresh pots. Or a...

    They're riding a 7 year old processor, indicating it's good odds that it'll probably be the better part of another decade before they feel the itch to upgrade. Even if DDR5 is still a going concern, memory speed will have increased enough that...

    It's not that Molex connectors were better in the 90s. It's that in the 2000's, you started dealing with a lot more cheap adapters -- Molex to SATA; Molex to 6pin PCI-e; all manner of trash-tier cooling and lighting fire hazards. Actual PSU-end...
