    Removing metal paste..

    Mechanical means always work also. Some 400 grit WOD sand paper and it would look brand new.

    IPA. Acetone if you're feeling hardcore. That stuff dissolves everything. I typically use a dollar store toothbrush and IPA( rubbing alcohol).

    Windows 10 seriously!

    Negative. I use linux and windows. Like them both. This thread is about windows configuration stuff moving around, and being a general PITA compared to windows 7. My comment is. "have you used linux?" If so, you will understand that configuration stuff is often in multiple places, moves...

    Doom Eternal accidentally ships without Denuvo DRM, making pirates’ job easier

    Just came here to say; Pirating software isn't a job.... Therefore their job cant be made easier. Silly internet.

    Windows 10 seriously!

    The best advice. If you don't like Windows 10, try Linux. You'll be ok with Windows 10 afterwards.

    The Z Build 2.0

    Please don't paint the table. It's too beautiful. I can't recall the brand, or type, but there is a dry lubricant spray, either silicone or graphite, I don't remember. But it's used on table saws and other wood tools. Prevents rust and keeps it shiny smooth. Love the attention to detail...

    Noctua violates PWM Spec, Causes Problems in Multi-Fan Configs

    I expect this has to do with fan features added to minimize the PWM "buzz" sound. Possibly make the fans more efficient to boot. Entirely a fan controller issue of that's the case. Not able to supply adequate current, or to much output impedance for whatever the fans have in place to manage...

    Usually it was just D:\ if I recall. I don't recall there being a specific command to change drive. Then run setup.exe

    Windows 95. Seriously

    XP is bad, it uses NTFS filesystem, which does not work on 95/98. Win 98 disk might just be your ticket. Or you find a custom boot disk that includes CD-rom drivers.

    Windows 95. Seriously

    What are you using for a boot disk? You need a good boot disk to be able to format the drive. Have you tried plugging the SD - HDD adapter into a working computer, and formatting the SD drive FAT32(or 16?) and setting up your partitions before putting it in the target computer?

    Windows 95. Seriously

    I looked into it almost ten years ago. The recruiter basically said no we don't need you. Now I'm 36, not sure I'd be a good fit.

    Ontario unfortunately. And not Eastern. In a bit of an employment rut right now. Decent job, but I dislike it a lot. Not much for options around me either.

    ryzen 3 3rd, or Ryzen 5 2nd?

    Issues with some games looking for 6+ threads. Fx chips multi thread well, still. For general computing it's an upgrade, for gaming, it depends.

    Intel claims top 34 spots in PassMark thanks to version 10 update

    Guys, at least they aren't bribing and threatening OEMs to not sell AMD hardware this time. In six years Intel will be ahead again and balance will be restored to the force. The Empire never dies

    When will operating systems catch up and make NVME read/write speeds more efficient?

    I'm only guessing, but like in gaming at 1440p where the cpu doesnt contribute much to performance, i think we're at the point where processors are actually processing the data, loading things into ram, and your dealing with latencies between operations, and not really in a situation where its...

    CRUCIAL MX500 2TB or SAMSUNG 860 EVO 2TB

    Google will tell you what they use for controllers. Both are very good drives. Neither has mechanical equipment. SSD drives are Solid State Drives, no mechanical components, all solid state electronics (no moving parts).

    CRUCIAL MX500 2TB or SAMSUNG 860 EVO 2TB

    This isnt very confusing. You have two drives, which comparing specs are almost identical, made by two very reputable manufacturers. Take a die (dice), odd numbers its the samsung, even numbers its the crucial. Roll it. Done.

    CRUCIAL MX500 2TB or SAMSUNG 860 EVO 2TB

    These two drives are very similar. you would have to actually research this yourself. As pointed out, if you just want to buy a drive go for it, either one will make you happy. my personal preference would go to the samsung. The crucial drive has a good reputation as well, as far as i know...

    Favorite Linux distro?

    The first Linux distro I tried was Gentoo. Steep curve. I would like to give it a go again. Not been very impressed with Ubuntu and friends in the last 10 years.

    Favorite Linux distro?

    Battlefield v and company of Heroes two. Bfv works ish by my last look, with a decent amount of fidgeting, and with my luck I'd get banned because the anti cheat thinks Linux is a hack. Coh2 works, but the multiplayer can't cross platform, so it's essentially broken.

    Favorite Linux distro?

    Just none of the games I play... At this point I'm not sure who to blame for it. If it would just run my games I would have switched years ago. At least now Windows spyware is free basically.

    Intel’s Culture Needed Fixing. Its C.E.O. Is Shaking Things Up.

    BF5 5700 xt low performance

    Some people like the numbers. Honestly bfv at 1080 ultra settings would be stunning. It's a really pretty game. I don't consider it a twitch shooter either so don't consider 60fps (my world) to be a handicap
