    Windows 10 April 2018 Update Changed My Settings

    so to bring this back to the point, if you are using win10 pro and are having issues with the updates, cause they are really a full reinstall of windows and not really an update, you have to use group policy to set the majority of your settings, not regedt, not control panel, but gpedit.msc.

    Brand new PC. MBR or OS problem?

    Umm probably under over clocking is where you can find the voltage options. I’m going to be very clear here in saying re read my post and follow the instructions, if your motherboard is still installed in your case your going to fast, if you can’t boot, you have a different problem than what I...

    Brand new PC. MBR or OS problem?

    hmmm. you probably are dealing with MSI's shitty implementation of adaptive voltages. Look in your hw specs for their default voltages, set them manually using override mode. The MSI screen shows up when secure boot is enabled, and the option MSI Fast Boot is also enabled. Also check for an...

    First World Apple Problems

    Why does everyone fucking miss the goddamn point here, "Admitted to slowing down older phones" what the fuck is this nonsense, they admitted to no such thing, they admitted to slowing down NEWER phones 6 and 6s with updates to the 7 line and x line soon. Jesus Christ. People are forgetting that...

    So let me get this straight. My R9 290 is worth 500 bucks?

    So let me get this straight. My R9 290 is worth 500 bucks?

    what resolution are you on? cause if you are on 1080p you might save a few bones and do 1070/1080 that will still stomp at 1080p, (my gtx970 still works great at 1080) if you are aiming for higher resolutions and the price difference isnt a dealbreaker for you get the 1080ti. I have an r9270x...

    Why is raid 0 so hated?

    i use 4 1tb enterprise drives in a raid 0 for my games, since you can just redownload a game and back it all up to steam thats pretty ok by me if the array goes south. That being said i do it because in that config, the 4 drives are as fast as my OS SSD, your drives are hybrid, if its not going...

    Gigabit Apartment Setup Help

    though i didnt think to ask, OP might not have an AC enabled wifi adapter in his machine, and that could be why he is stuck on slow speeds. OP if you dont have an AC adapter in the PC, then i would probably start by buying one of those and seeing if your speeds do not increase. If your adapter...

    Gigabit Apartment Setup Help

    nah, you would be better off buying a seperate AP like a UP-AC-PRO from ubiquiti, which can pump about 1160mbps out the AC channel, or focus on getting a wire over there. No matter what though i think you are looking at 100 bucks, either for some cable, or for a beefy AP, your router can push...

    Looking for Router Recommendation

    also, do you really think Pro? i have always battled that question, at my home with about 15-16 devices constantly on the wifi the AP-AC-LR with the one gig in seems to not have any hiccups. I just dont know if the extra mimo, and the extra gig port are really needed for homes without gigabit...

    Looking for Router Recommendation

    yes, two different types of fish, USG will give you a nice "complete ecosystem" all manageable through their controller webpage, mikrotik will give you far more options, but you have to manage it through winbox, and though it is not too complicated in your setup (you would just leave it on most...

    Gigabit Apartment Setup Help

    https://mikrotik.com/product/wireless_wire You should check your wifi bands brosef, max output on some bands is 150/300mbps, if you are on AC you can get gigabit, but 5ghz signals travel less distance.

    Looking for Router Recommendation

    i would skip the USG and get a Mikrotik Hexv3 as your router, and keep the UAP-AC-LR's mikrotik pushes more pps with more features, for $50.

    i cant afford to even play with Os X save for in a virtual environment :( waiting to pick up and old macbook from a friend for cheap. Me being the pragmatic person i am, would rather have all the tools in my arsenal, and expertise with all the weapons rather than specialization in one.

    I love Linux

    Also please dont run LTSB unless you have server 2016 and a domain controller managing it. You miss out on soooooo many security updates you might as well just not. If you dont like Msoft calling home, use GP and disable it. There is literally a setting, 1 setting, "Disable all communication to...

    So happy I didn't update to iOS11.

    i am well aware of the pitfalls of the apple ecosystem, i merely mention that for the pleasure of having apple open the fragile as fuck glass phone, and replace the battery with what i assume will be an OEM part, 29 in the apple world is very very good.
