    G.Skill ram temps

    Two G. Skill F4-4000C18-16GTZR on a Gigabyte X570SI is reporting 239.1 Celsius temps while gaming. This is concerning. I don't think its right, but its of interest. Yesterday I added two 120mm fans as exhaust to the top of the NR200P case after I noticed it said 255..... Anyone else seen...

    SMS on the PC?

    I used to use Pushbullet, but I'm not doing a subscription and the free has a monthly limit on use. Which I hit in less than three days. I looked at Airdroid and it's slow as fuck, not a fan of the ads either. So whats a good current app so I don't have to keep picking up my phone all the time...

    Upgrade 1900X to 2920X experience

    Didn't go so well. I never received a DOA processor till now. It's a shame the 1900X goes to a new home tomorrow. Looks like I'm going to be down my CAD box for a bit. I never reinstalled a cpu so many times before. I thought I wasn't getting the cpu seated in the socket right. Threw the 1900X...

    Pop OS and hardware upgrades

    My Plex/Gaming whore is getting an upgrade. Plex duties will now be served by an X58 Xeon combo under Win 10. I'm looking to have just a pure Linux gamer. So the 4770k and motherboard are pending sale and I have a 2700x with a Asus ROG Strix B450-F filling the void. My question is, can I get...

    Windows log in...

    So the Threadripper box has been running without too much issue, it has created another dilemma for me today. It has a Asus Strix 5700XT installed and it's a bit quirky. Today I have some time so I was going to replace it with a 1080ti from my 2600 box. (Being that it's down currently) I had...

    Ryzen 5 2600 SFF cooling

    So I finally found a case for my 2600 gamer. The previous case was some old junky mid tower box I had in storage. Now it's in a SFF Corsair box. I have the stock cooler on it and it's stayed in the normal temp range for a 2600. 60-70c under load and around 63-65c gaming, but the new box...

    New error on Ubuntu log in

    This has appeared recently. It seems to suggest MariaDB issue, but that isn't installed. At least I can find no trace of it being installed. This pops up, I click OK, it brings up the background, the error pops up again, disappears, background cycles again, then all is fine. It's annoying...

    GA-Z97N-Gaming 5 WiFi antennas

    I lost mine, whats a good replacement? Usually this box is connected to the network by way of Cat 6, but it's possible I ma set it up again here soon and all that is available for the time being is wireless. I'm sure the originals are to be found in storage, 3.5 hour drive away. So, what can I...

    iPad mini 4

    Is it typical for Apple products to randomly ask for your Apple ID? It won't check my email, update apps, or be anything other than be a nuisance till I enter my Apple ID password. Why did it randomly forget? I keep expecting a Mac version of the MS office paperclip to reveal itself...

    Windows 10/Ubuntu network No talky!

    Once upon a time, they talked to each other. I could look up shares on any of the Win 10 boxes and see the Linux shares, but it was always easier the other way around. Now, the Win 10 boxes see the Linux shares, but ask for a password, so I enter the only one I know that has been setup. Nope...

    Amazon Fire 10.1 charging issues

    It's about a year and a half old and refuses to accept a charge anymore. The owner uses it a lot. Reads books, games, movies, streaming shows. Seven days a week, 24/7 it seems. Lots of use. Battery won't accept a charge anymore. Maybe due to poor charging methods by the owner. Any of you...

    The AMD OC days I miss

    Cleaning stuff up and came across this. Shame I don't still have the mobo and processor still. Almost as much fun as 333 celeries on a BP6 running at 500 ea.

    So, you should always measure....

    I had a system all setup in an ol Aopen case circa 1999, 2000. Great case. Huge, heavy, not terribly roomy even for a server case. In it I stuffed a Gigabyte GA-Z97N-Gaming 5 mini-itx mobo with a 4770k and 16 gig of gskill ram with two WD 2 TB and one HGST 4 TB drive for some Linux Plex whore...

    Well, I know how to handle upgrading video cards in a Windows environment, but I’ve never done it in a Linux one before. Going from a gtx 670 to a 1070 ti with the Ubuntu box in sig.

    ASUS ROG STRIX Radeon Rx 480 8GB OC video issues

    Due to the wonderful review of this card, I got it. I love how it makes the games look, Ashes of Singularity, Doom. It's paired with the 3770K system in sig. It's a wonderful card for 1080. Until you watch a movie with it. I have tried Win 10's media player, VLC , Cyberlink PowerDVD 10, and...

    DVD media

    I have had a rough time finding decent DL DVD media. I have a Microcenter nearby and I have gotten three different brands of blank DVD's and as they get to the end of the burning session, coasters. Anything I have bought recently doesn't seem to work. Verbatim, Memorex and one other brand I...
