    Theoretical maximum specs for AMD cpu based platform under Windows 7

    Microsoft pushing so hard to make people get off the older Windows OS's is just going to backfire. People don't like to be told what to do and will consider alternatives, if merely out of spite.

    Threadripper and Windows 7

    Wow, so much cock-gargling for that POS W10. Some of you just need to accept lots of people hate it and try not take it as some kind of personal crusade. At least 8.1 has a later end of life than W7.

    Tesla Model 3 Owners Vent about Polar Vortex Affecting Cars

    Weird - I use the built-in block heater on my 6.7L cummins last night (-2 deg F) and just 6-7 Amps out of a 110V outlet had enough power to keep the engine coolant in that monster block over 100F. This is outside, in the snow and cold and wind. I dont buy it. People are making mountains of...

    Tesla Model 3 Owners Vent about Polar Vortex Affecting Cars

    Do you have a citation for this? Basic math says a Tesla using 110V X 10A = ~1KW continuously to heat the battery and still lose its charge seems unreasonable to me. Just charging a battery causes it to warm up.

    Considering "upgrading" to Win10

    I still rock W7 for my main rigs. W10 brings me nothing I want and lots of things I dont want. I do have a couple of W10 rigs I use for mining/test purposes but W10 annoys the hell out of me every time I use it. My suggestion, run W10 in a VM for a while and see how you like it (or on a...

    Anyone tried 2990WX with Windows 7 x64?

    1950X definitely is possible as I run it myself on a Zenith Extreme mobo with W7. Don't know about the 2nd gen ones. If I had the hardware I would try by taking an existing working 1950X/Win7 setup and replacing the CPU.

    Nvidia Allegedly Terminates Sponsorship for Stance Against Preordering Hardware

    If you want some vendor's free stuff, you need to gobble their johnson and say what they tell you to say. Thats how the game works. And yes, if you pre-order something sight-unseen, no real-world, un-biased reviews, you're a sucker.

    Getting started w/ modest initial investment - Mining, trading and more, worthwhile?

    That was a long post with no real questions I could discern other than "can I make money mining?" - go to and do some basic math. The problem is predicting what a coin will be worth in 1 year. The market is flooded with shitcoins. Second question, can I make money trading...

    Windows 10 Lean: Microsoft Working on Cut-Down Version of OS

    They are only removing regedit because you need it to disable forced updates in the newer versions of W10. Simply disabling Windows Update Service doesn't work anymore.

    Seagate Is Bringing RAID 0 Performance to Single HDDs via Multi-Actuator Tech

    This looks like a bad ROI/idea to me. You have two actuators, but they are stacked vertically so each can only access half the platters at a you only get double performance if the data you want is spread equally on the two platters...or are they planning on mirroring all the data on...
