    Whatever happened to cool physical graphics on the graphics cards themselves?

    What happened to them? The universe corrected itself and they went the way of the dodo bird. Good riddance.

    Intel Is Unable Deliver a Microcode Patch Some Older CPU Models

    Nope, because the Lynnfield (i7 8xx, i5 7xx) and Clarkdale (i5 6xx, i3 5xx, Pentium G69xx) are still slated for the update.

    PSA: This Week Might Be Your Last Chance to Get Windows 10 for Free

    General Mayhem Subscription Access

    Whelp, I guess those Ratpadz are going to cost me some extra dough now (only have myself to blame on that though :p) At least it's going for a good cause. ;) Hell, the laughs the funniest picture thread has given me is almost worth it itself. :LOL: Anyway, so I'm guessing that payments are...

    RAM reservation by GPU in 32 bit Windows 7?

    This. 256MB of physical address space will be reserved for various motherboard functions and another 256MB will be reserved for the graphics card. Actually, Server 2008 SP2 was the last version that was available in 32-bit, ran it on a old Williamette P4 for a while.

    Geforce GTX 1050 Ti (Reference) - Ahead of GTX 960 in New Benchmarks

    The 1050TI does not require a 6 pin. For EVGA's line up, you can move all the way up to the SSC version and still don't need one (see image here). Only the FTW version requires one (see image here).

    The Internet Is Getting Faster, A Lot Faster

    Speeds have gone up and prices have gone down for me. March 2015 - 5/.768 for $54 March 2016 - 10/1 for $48 Would be considered bad for some, but I don't live near any major city, so I can't complain. I'm happy with it.

    Looking to upgrade from an HD7850 2GB. Suggestions?

    Considering the current 370 is just a rebrand of your current card (w/ a OC), moving up one slot to a 380 would be a waste, IMO.

    Upgrading from i3 4170 to i5 4690k Worth it for gaming?

    Afterburner is great for monitoring. And yes, it has a in game overlay (OSD). Make sure you have the overlay show the CPU usage per core, and not overall CPU usage (which is what I think it defaults to for the overlay). Overall CPU usage won't really tell you anything. For GPU usage, the...

    Have room to upgrade, what low profile card should I get?

    That card's performance will be held back by the slow DDR3 RAM. However, even if there was a low profile, single slot GDDR5 variant (can't find one), it still would be slower than a 7750 or GT 740 (basically a rebranded GTX 650). Low profile, single slot variants (with GDDR5) exist for both...

    ePower Juice Box 450W Auxiliary Power Supply Review

    Too bad you didn't get any ripple shots when the unit was making its dismal attempt at a full load; probably would have had a new record there, even surpassing that wretched Linkworld abomination O.K. reviewed a couple of years ago. ;)
