I like the PSU at the bottom.
That being said... almost all cases available these days and in the past have some horrible design flaw that should have been caught by anybody at all that actually builds computers. It is as if the people who design cases have never even built their own computer.
What power adapter are you using? Is the laptop detecting it properly? If the laptop detects too small of a power adapter OR doesn't detect the power adapter properly, it WILL cause the system to clock really low. I've never bothered looking at how low it clocks when that happens.
Your modem is a modem that also has the ability to do VOIP for phones.
1. Reset your router to factory settings (There is a reset button on the back).
2. Make sure your router has the latest firmware available installed.
If neither of those fixes it then get a new router because there is...
If you say so... I remember the dreams I have quite well. I remember dreams I had around 30 years ago.
So if it is impossible to see something I haven't seen before then how do artists draw/paint whatever this is fictional if they haven't seen it for real before?
I've been using Arctic Silver Ceramique 2. May not be the top performer but it works great for anything that the last 1-2C doesn't matter.
Never had a problem with it separating.
It cleans up way easier than stuff like IC Diamond and Arctic Silver 5.
Some games have come out with free high resolution texture packs after they were released.
Video cards at the time of the release would not have been able to handle these higher res texture packs.
For example - Fallout 4 - regular required system specs:
Requires a 64-bit...
Well, what happens to the 10GB of RAM on the 3080 when games start coming out with even higher resolution textures?
I have a feeling that some games will end up being able to use more than 10GB RAM in the not too distant future.
x58 board. Purchased from Newegg. It died and I sent it in for RMA. They sent me a physically damaged board that completely died after 1 week.
I let them know about the damage when I got the replacement board and they didn't respond. Then when I told them it died, they put "CLOSE!" in the RMA...
I haven't looked, but how is the CPU usage in those tests? I'm wondering if we are seeing CPU bottlenecks with this gen. I haven't upgraded my CPU in quite a while and the 2080 I had was definitely CPU limited when I disabled v-sync / G-sync.
I'm not sure at this point. I sold my 2080 and stuck my 1080 back in my computer. I haven't had time to game much at all lately so no biggie. I am also wanting to get a new DSLR which costs around $1,700 just for the body so I may just put off getting a new graphics card for a while.
I may get...
Well... if the miners buy all the new cards, then they will dump the "old" 2 series cards and the prices will probably plummet on them.
If that is the case and 3 series cards are not available then maybe I will just get a 2080Ti.
No, I don't care if it has been mined on. Family member still...
I sold my 2080 and put my 1080 back in my computer. Don't have a ton of time to game anyway.
I am on the fence about saving for the 3080 or saving for a new DSLR camera I have been drooling over for a while.
Cisco stuff is super expensive. That being said, used Cisco switches can be a great deal for small offices.
Dell even sells switches now. I recently picked up a 48-port Gb switch with 4x 10Gb fiber ports for a whopping $75.
I tried to skip last gen. Had a 1080... then I found a 1080Ti for sale for cheap on a local marketplace. Bought it and it ended up being DOA but it was still under warranty. Sent it in and EVGA replaced it with a 2080 XC ULTRA GAMING.
Stupid high price. I'll take my ~$50 FX5950 Ultra that had bad fans so I put an aftermarket way better cooler on card.
And to top it off, you can get an equivalent Quadro card and just run it higher clocks than stock to get to 5800 Ultra performance. (Quadro FX 2000).
Or for the 5950 U, get a...
Probably not. Crappy SSD = crappy SSD.
That being said, I have seen way more nvme SSDs die than SATA SSDs. My pretty well thought out theory is because the way the nvme drives and sockets are designed, the socket puts some upwards pressure on the drive which is fastened down on the other end...
Maybe the CPU is sticking at a lower multiplier when it comes out of sleep sometimes.
Do you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard?
You can try adjusting the power settings to tell the CPU to run at 100% clock speed all the time... won't help if it is a BIOS issue though.
Sounds to me like the shops you took it to shouldn't ever be allowed near a computer...
I have seen a CPU kill a motherboard and the other way around as well though.
I have also seen:
shorted fans that cause a no-power on
bad HDDs and other drives that cause a no power on
cases that have a...
Uggghhh.. So glad I haven't found any Aluminium wire in this house besides where the A/C used to be. It is too old.
This house has been added onto multiple times. Main breaker box is in outside utility room. Fuse box in room inside house. Then there was also a sub-panel in the far end of the...
In that regard, yes...... movies at the regular 24fps are not smooth at all. If I try, I can see the separate frames. I have to make myself not think about it when I am in a movie theater or even sometimes when just watching a movie on TV or else it drives me crazy.
Nobody I have said this to...
Glad you are not one of those who like slimy HFCS over real sugar :-)
The smoothness of one GPU vs another GPU can be scientifically proven... You do a frametime benchmark. Doing a Frame runt benchmark is not so easy. This was a huge thing a few years ago before AMD fixed the framtime issues...
I'm just ready to see benches. Really don't care about upgrading at this point. The 2080 I have is plenty fast... still at 1080p.
I really need to upgrade the rest of my system before I upgrade to a fancy new video card.
Heh.... stupid GFCI / AFCI. I am not surprised one bit that it was tripping.
And yeah, as they age they start tripping easier and easier. Sometimes they just die completely and won't reset at all.
I have the luxury of owning my own home... still a fixer upper. The wiring was absolutely a...
