    I wonder how it crunches... 64c/256t booting winderp

    KNL (knights landing) version of the Xeon Phi is now bootable, as opposed to being a coprocessor last gen. 7210 is the "cheap" one at $2438 ... Still a bit rich for my blood but I can drool over it. Thought you fellow DCers would be interested.

    PG does it again... GPU's no longer important.

    Give Money to the projects that need it directly... don't give them 90%. For profit BTC pools are 2% or less. 10% for a charity pool is ludicrous. You are buying points.

    G9x replacement...what do you game on.

    My G9x is wearing out and I need to find a replacement candidate before it dies. The weight drawer has been jammed from day one... and as it is still under warranty I will probably see if they have any spare g9x's around before this one passes out of warranty. That said Logitech seems to have...

    And by diversifying I mean stop folding unless they get their heads out of their asses. I have been involved in WCG and BOINC in the past and I am slowly pointing all of my cpu resources that way and I have a rather large arsenal :D. Project selection suggestions are welcome. Currently...

    12800s < s?

    What is the s in pc3-12800s stand for? It is a SO-DIMM, is that all it means? 12800r would be registered, e would be ecc, this is just the first time I have seen s. I don't really see a reason for labelling a so-dimm s on the end... its kinda obvious its not a full form factor dimm. Any thoughts?

    4p Power advisory

    Please refrain from using Molex to EPS 12v adapters on your 4p systems. I have seen this picture and those like it too much... Even dual molex to 12v eps are not a good idea. If there is absolutely no way to do an 8pin EPS from the psu directly (no Ys or splitters)... I suggest a PCIE to EPS...
