    What Browser you use with Latest Win10 builds? How many swapped from Chrome to Edge?

    I think Edge is almost good enough to swap to from Chrome. If it were not for the fact the browser kinda freezes up in a white screen after Min the window, i likley would have stoped using chrome. Edge Seems very fancy but Half Baked with issues.

    Strange how Win reports vram usage and amount these days? Or has it always been this way

    yea i guess the cards vram is just the shared system or gpu memory....Only reason i was checking cause AB seems to think my cards is using 13GB of Vram which is impossible right?

    Noticed a phone that isn't mine logged into my google account the middle of last month

    Ok after a major panic attack the pw is changed and the device removed. What am i doing wrong? I did change the hole thing to 2 step verification for the future, So that should help. It scares the hell out of me, thinking of the damage that could be done if someone can log into your google account.

    Phone call notations on my pc speakers, why?

    Part of me suspects the BT on my phone is connecting to my pc speakers, but i can clearly see its only connected to my car radio. Its not a big deal truthfully and honestly its half way amusing. My phone is Moto G7 and i only use win10 if it even matters at all.

    Is it time to upgrade? 3800x or a 3900x....or wait for the 3950x lol

    No way i was spending more than msrp...but it seems the prices are back down to normal prices. Maybe i should just wait for black Friday deals cause it aint like i really need the upgrade right now...but its only money. Does that 70MB of game cache really help out? You 3900x people glad you...

    pc seems to freeze up on certain web page....then i hear the gpu fan kick on and it comes right back

    Oddly enough i have only seen it happen on the fps review. Some kind of weird bug with AMD drivers and chrome and not going thru the longer process with using ddu and doing a more clean driver install. Im pretty sure a clean driver install will fix this. Seems like...

    What new display is right for me with a Vega64?

    Part of me wants a new display for watching the newer 4K UHD videos.

    H.265 AMD VCE Video Codec With Handbrake or other software

    Is there any visual difference between regular H.265 and AMD VCE? I used to use bdrebuilder back in the day to shrink bd movies but have been trying out handbrake.....The AMD codec seems a million times faster and puts the gpu to actual use, so is there any reason not to use it?

    AMD Ryzen Master

    Anyone here ever really use this tool? Manually turning on PBO seems helpful in boosting the clock speed. So many ways of achieving the same results? Any harm in raising or maxing PPT, TDC or EDC values? Honestly I think all these apps are confusing to learn lol

    How does Win 10 use the internet when it has 2 different sources (usb tethering or Wifi)

    As in if neither option is super great can it use both to increase bandwidth? Or should i just disable wifi or disconnect to for it to use the usb tether over my phone? the wifi would be using the motels internet and not from my phone. Is the OS smart enough to use the faster option?

    I can always fix this error by powering down the system and unplugging an plugging the sata cord. Doing an analysis still shows the drive at 100% fitness. The issues started in the last year i think...nothing before that. Maybe i should look to retire these very old drives? Or it could be issues...

    Gaming perf differance of my overclocked x5670 vs a new 4ghz Ryzen7 ?

    I can easily see a 4ghz Ryzen gets about a 50% performance improvement in workstation tasks compared to what i have....I wonder what im looking at in the game performance area? should be at least a 10% overall improvement right?
