Ones I've personally owned:
AMD Athlon 3600+
AMD Phenom II 955 BE
Intel i5-2500k OC to 5.2
AMD Ryzen 7 1700X
Honestly I thought I had owned more, but thinking back that covers about 20 years 🤔
Of course I used computers back to a 286
This article sent me on a quest to begin to better understand Priviledged Access Management (PAM) at an individual and family level. I've always been squeamish about storing logins locally, but it's led to breaking some of the best practices out there. So I set out to learn how password managers...
Someone on this forum was an absolute gem and sold me a 1080ti for a very fair price when I posted a WTB for a specific card model. People on here are pretty awesome - maybe you can find a fair buy/trade ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Had a 6990 back in the day from ASUS that started artifacting pretty hard. So I shipped it back to them, but not before putting a tiny permanent marker inscription somewhere they'd never find it. I get my replacement - it's the same card - still artifacts. So I ripped them a new one and told...
Sure, that base clock increase is great, no qualms there. It's the people who are excited about running at 5Ghz that I'm posting that for because realistically, the difference between running 4.7 vs 5.0 on a single core will be negligible. How many applications do you know of that would benefit...
40Gb/s = 5120MB/s
If a single disk can do 200MB/s sustained, then you need a 26-drive RAID-0 to saturate a 40Gb pipe assuming 100% efficiency. RAID 10/50/60 would change increase that number significantly.
Or you can just do NVMe SSDs if you need speed but not capacity. It's far cheaper.
I was just looking for Sapphire Nitro+ cards on Newegg and the Special Edition popped up. While I was contemplating, they went out of stock. I refreshed for a bit to see if they'd come back in stock and they did. Newegg had a purchase limit of 2 as well, so I manage to get checked out before...
Whoa - didn't realize that. That's crazy!!
I have a Msi RX580 Gaming X 8Gb I clocked to 1490/2250 and that received a single-card score of 5054 in timespy. Assuming 100% scalability, two of those in crossfire would yield 10108.
Seeing as I was using 1450/2250 with these special editions and...
Just ran TimeSpy on two RX580 Nitro+ Special Edition cards in crossfire.
Core Clock: 1450
Default power settings - no increase in power draw
These cards are as Sapphire would say "Cherry Picked ASICs." I'm using them for mining, so I've tightened up the timings on them...
There is a ridiculous abundance of 0 feedback buyers looking for graphics cards right now. It's absolutely incredible now many I've seen bidding on my radeons. It was so ridiculous that I just decided to stop listing them. And this is the reason I'm going to move back to either Craiglist/OfferUo...
I tried selling some RX 580/570s on eBay. My first card got bought and never paid for by a random Russian dude using a 3rd party agency for shipping. Cost me a full week of time trying to get it re-listed and by that time the pricing craze was over.
The second card was bought by a guy in New...
This is not the first time we've had a memory shortage. The first happened when sri lanka and other parts of the world got nailed by that tsunami and it destroyed production capacity. But when we're creating more data than ever before and it's growing exponentially and the requirements from...
The prices in memory are increasing because supply is not keeping up with demand. SSDs and DIMMs are seeing increasing demand in the Enterprise market space. This year alone, I've seen 4 or 5 price increases at Dell for their server memory. A 32GB DIMM used to have a list price of about $549...

I will toss my hat into the ring with the people who would buy a mining card over a gaming card. Constant fluctuations in temperatures cause circuitry to fail over time. Overclocking through increasing the amount of power supplied to the card causes additional degradation over time. People...
I've gone through the long CMOS reset about 4 times now. I'll do it exactly as you've mentioned leaving 10 minutes in between each step.
RX580 does not have a backup BIOS
R290 does , which I did flip just for giggles to see if it would change anything.
11:15 - Removed CMOS Battery (Power...
Here's my situation:
AsRock X370 Taichi
G.Skill FlareX 16GB
MSI RX580 Gaming X 8GB
eVGA SuperNova G3
1. Used ATIFlash 2.74 to backup my RX580 ROM
2. Used Polaris BIOS Editor to edit ROM by copying setting from 1:1750 to 1:2000
3. Saved BIOS under a new file name
Holy poo....I had no idea! I grabbed a RX580 from MSI a month ago for $250 - can't believe that it's worth more now.
The person who snagged about 30 RX480s on the forums here a month or two back for $125-$150 each comes to mind...lucky bstrd.
Running World of Warships and Eve Online simultaneously on my Ryzen rig. Switch back and forth between the two. Let's me do basic mining operations to make ISK and play WoW at the same time. Performance is perfect.
Horizon is virtual desktop, so there might not be a corporate laptop anymore and the employee is logging into a virtual desktop instance or using a thin client at work. It depends on the user type. If they do have a thick client, it's locked down so only corporate approved programs can be...
NSX fixes this. NSX enables firewall rules between every VM and computer in the network. Those firewall / network rules travel with that specific VM anywhere it goes so you're not dealing with physical firewalls inside the org. Palo Alto will sandbox and execute attachments as they come in. If...
Makes me wonder if Palo Alto customers with the sandbox, or NSX customers with proper firewall rules got hit as hard or if it contained better. Horizon and Citrix customers doing their jobs right should have fared quite well. Cheapo Corps won't invest in any of this tech.
Depends on the load. At stock Trixx fan settings, mine has never gone over 71C under 100% load during testing. About 60% of the time, my fans aren't even running when playing Eve Online. With other games, the it's usually hovering in the 50s, but I can't hear the fans. Again, I'm using stock fan...
