    no Utube sound

    I help an elderly friend with her computer and I’ve hit a problem that stumps me. She is running Windows 10 (latest updates etc.) and uses Firefox (latest version and have disable addons). She likes and has used Utube for various art info for years. Suddenly no sound on Utube. Her sound...

    Gearing Up for Threadripper 2990X Cooling

    Kyle, What does "built correctly" mean in your comment? The geo is correct and they don't need to change it? I doubt that is the case unless AMD has shuck their imprint to fit the current footprints. I would assume you must mean something else. Once they understand the footprint concept...

    Intel Rumors - Kaby Lake-X - Skylake-X and Cascade Lake

    So appears bottom line is that Intel got caught with their pants down and is hopping around trying to get them up while they address the problem. I assume the manager in charge with their strategy got a HUGE bonus.

    Spielberg: Movies Released by Streaming Services Don’t Deserve an Oscar

    Who cares? I've given up on ever attending another movie. Why should I pay ~10$ to this bunch of clowns to support them. They don't care nor will I. Hollywood has made it choice with most of these clueless beautiful people and so have I!!!

    Zuckerberg Breaks Silence On Cambridge Analytica Scandal

    Anyone that believes Facebook (Zuckerberg) is sorry hold up your computer. I long ago dissed them and the vast majority of silicon valley. It is about the $s they make, nothing else. A number of folks have said how they and much of the social media would remove the ability of youth to think...

    HomeGroup not working and can't access other computers

    I can't access any of the computers on my home network. I've tried a number of things suggested across the internet but nothing up to this point has worked. I realize that HomeGroup so forget that so I'm not using that. I have defined new working group and have done that a couple times...

    Microsoft Is Retiring the Windows Homegroup

    Just rebuilt 3 machines and they've updated. I've been trying to figure out why homegroup wouldn't connect. Guess this info was out there somewhere and I missed. Thanks for the post rgMekanic!

    Apple CEO Tim Cook Won't Let His Nephew On Social Media

    Completely agree with him. When I teach courses, college or grad school, I never allow computers, even calculators, in the class. They seem to think the answer is in that dumb device. The numerical answer is of little value in that situation, it is how you go about getting it that counts.

    GM Plans to Launch Autonomous Car Without Steering Wheel or Pedals Next Year

    Two autonomous cars crash, which one's insurance pays? Or an autonomous car crashes into a human driven car and kills the driver, what then? Lawyers are going to have fun with this one.......big pay check?

    GM Plans to Launch Autonomous Car Without Steering Wheel or Pedals Next Year

    Remember the old joke about the airplane being piloted by a computer? It went something like, "Relax folks I'm a HAL computer flying this plane, set back and relax, nothing can go wrong, nothing can go wrong, nothing can go wrong, ...."

    NSA’s Top Talent Is Leaving: Low Pay, Slumping Morale, Unpopular Reorganization

    NSA’s Top Talent Is Leaving: Low Pay, Slumping Morale, Unpopular Reorganization

    Having been a member of a couple national labs since the early 1970s so this isn't surprising at all. Days when Nobel laureates worked at our government institutes is long gone. Congress has cut funding to the point that top graduates don't even bother to look. FAR better salaries and chances...

    Vulnerability Note VU#584653 - CPU Hardware Attacks Solution

    Pure dumb luck but I'm in the process changing my machines over to Threadrippers. Wanted more threads for some applications I write but compilers are still lagging behind full use of the chips.

    Vulnerability Note VU#584653 - CPU Hardware Attacks Solution

    It indicates that AMD is "Affected" yet several posts says it is not. Does this relate to old AMD cpus versus newer? Clarification is needed. Drilling down through the links isn't clear, at least in first quick read. I should add, thanks Kyle for your following and posts on the general subject!!

    Swiftech Apogee SKF Threadripper Water Block Review @ [H]

    Kyle, Thank you very much for your detailed reply. The spring constant can be determined and would be useful for both the Swiftech supplied springs and the stronger ones you used. One of the advertisers on the home page is Century Spring Corp and I'm sure with a starting point info the...

    Swiftech Apogee SKF Threadripper Water Block Review @ [H]

    I can fully understand your report (GOOD work) BUT what components does a user buy? What you have setting around your lab from other setups doesn't mean crap to me. Please, simple links regarding what to buy. Springs are very simple, can you specify the specs on such items? A hardware store...

    X399 Designare EX-CF with 1920X

    At 90+ the board should throttle itself but at the cost of Threadrippers I wouldn't trust it. All the reviews I've seen show the XPSC hangs in there with most others within a degree or so between the best. Looking at the internal structure and the flow into and out of the micro-fined block I...

    X399 Designare EX-CF with 1920X

    Elkwood, thanks for your comments. To overclock, all I did was follow Kyle's effort on the ASUS Zenith Extreme overclock (look at HardOcp review of that board). Somewhere I think it was said he used that approach on the Gigabyte X399 Aorus board overclock too. I've not spent more than 10s of...

    X399 Designare EX-CF with 1920X

    System specs are in the signature below. Haven't pushed it hard but based on Kyle's experience there may not be a lot of room left. Attached image shows a snap while running Prime95 on 24 threads.

    Phanteks C399A Threaderipper Waterblock Breakdown

    Reasonable design but flow distribution could be better controlled. Would be interesting to have detailed thermal information related to the flow channels furthest from the input and output. I'll be interested in the test results, realizing that details of the temperature distributions won't...

    States Go After Amazon Third-Party Sellers

    I understand why states want their tax $s but ..... been an Amazon Prime customer for several years since we live in a small town. Now that Amazon has started charging tax, the typical tax for larger items exceeds shipping costs from other sites so our buying from Amazon has just about stopped.

    EK Supremacy EVO Threadripper TR4 Waterblock Review @ [H]

    Interesting results but did I miss something? Kyle's video implies that since the microfins cover far less area over the Threadripper, the EK might be less productive. The results imply support that that result might be correct. The first thing I would do to support that suggestion might...

    Threadripper 1900X

    Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. My main reason for considering the 1900x was future upgrade. At this point I'm seriously thinking about a 1920x instead. All this aimed at multi-thread scientific computing.

    Threadripper 1900X

    I've stated my needs are related to multiple threads and scientific computations. Where it relates to C++, Java or some other language isn't important. There are multiple studies that say quad-channel or less, memory performance doesn't show much difference. I find little info that leads me...

    Threadripper 1900X

    Good question Algrim. The vast majority of reviews I've seen regarding that comparison revolve around gaming which isn't my interest. I do scientific computing that uses multithreads. Info related to multithread and related memory performance would be greatly appreciated. Also any views...

    Threadripper 1900X

    Originally started overclocking the AMD decades ago before having to turn to Intel. Am thinking seriously about trying out the 1900x (max $s I want to spend). Your thoughts regarding it versus other options. NOTE: I do far more computing than gaming.

    Overclocking the Intel Core i9-7900X X-series Processor

    Thanks for your reply Kyle. 2 quick questions: Did you apply new TIM to the board's heatsinks? Did you detect any throttling while you were overclocking at the higher levels?

    Overclocking the Intel Core i9-7900X X-series Processor

    I wouldn't debate that observation (by Nobu) but clarification by Hardforum, supporting or disagreeing or yet to be determined, would help. Maybe they (Kyle) has said what they're willing to say and I realize the "whys" behind that. We all know it is about the lawyers and getting sued.

    Overclocking the Intel Core i9-7900X X-series Processor

    Thanks for the report, I find it interesting but I really could care less about the 7900X ---- I am NOT spending that kinda $s. I'm far more interested in the 7800X and 7820X. Otherwise I wouldn't jump to the X299. I'll wait for the pricing battle that AMD Threadripper might trigger before I...

    On the Test Bench so Far this Week

    Think what you will, but AMD did have a period before it lost the bubble (you'll have to figure out what that means). Intel did nothing for the OCing community early in their life. Intel held nothing but contempt for us OCers. Maybe only a few of us go back that far.
