    What's the most key point when you decide to get a 3d printer

    Quality of the prints. No use buying a 3d printer that is super finicky about working properly just to save a few bucks in the short term.

    i blew up my cheap harbor freight multimeter, what I do wrong?

    I've never fried one of the cheap HF meters. They are great for basic stuff. Then again, I grew up knowing how to use a multimeter. Probably started using one around age 8 or so. Only time I have seen on fried is when a family member was trying to test voltage and had the dial 180 off...

    XeSS sucks :^)

    Maybe I've just had the misfortune of having to fix / reprogram from scratch way too many projects. Then again, I have also worked with a decent amount of open source code and I usually want to gouge my eyes out.

    XeSS sucks :^)

    Heh.. no, the main reason for such small increases in speed for CPUs was because Intel didn't have much competition for quite a while. The main issue with program performance is because of crap programmers and them not caring one wit about performance. Usually, when I look at other's code I...

    NVIDIA DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” Lock Reportedly Bypassed

    Yep. But Nvidia has shown time and time again that they are more slimy than ATI/AMD.

    NVIDIA DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” Lock Reportedly Bypassed

    So it is pretty much crap. I remember way back when nVidia had the cheaty drivers where they would skip rendering some stuff in order to inflate the benchmark numbers. But now it is ok to do so because it is a "feature" and they aren't trying to hide it?

    Article: CAMM, Dell's new SODIMM standard

    There are plenty of forums posts (not necessarily here) asking about CPU upgrades and GPU upgrades for laptops. Not so much anymore, but the Dell Precision 4600 - 4800 / 6600 - 6800 were upgradeable.. had the option of either Nvidia or AMD. The 4600 is the newest one I did an upgrade on...

    NVIDIA DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” Lock Reportedly Bypassed

    I want to see side by side output quality comparisons with it disabled and enabled. If it turns the output quality to crap to boost the frame rate than it is still crap.

    NVIDIA DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” Lock Reportedly Bypassed

    Have you seen the reviews of the RTX 4090 cards? 4k looks pretty crazy playable to me. So much so that the review I watched said to not bother buying one of you play at 1440p or below because you are going to be CPU limited. The results showed that.

    Article: CAMM, Dell's new SODIMM standard

    I've done laptop CPU upgrades quite a few times. Now with newer laptops you have to buy a board with everything soldered on instead of just being able to upgrade what you want to. All in the name of making devices thinner.

    The CPUs for the most part are already all soldered on, even on the Precision models.

    Article: CAMM, Dell's new SODIMM standard

    Yeah, if the RAM is at least upgradeable then it is a good thing. The lower-end Dell laptops already have some models that have the RAM soldered on. RAM goes bad and the whole motherboard has to be replaced. User needs more RAM... Then they have to get a whole new laptop. The Precision...

    Windows cert manager asking for creds to open?

    I'm not sure how they have stuff set up but managing user certs doesn't normally require admin access. I don't have "god" level admin access at this job so I can't really go look at absolutely everything myself.

    Windows cert manager asking for creds to open?

    We have a single Windows 10 computer that is bringing up the UAC prompt in order to open the cert manager. Anybody have any clue as to what would cause this?

    Good 3d modeling software that isn't expensive?

    Good 3d modeling software that isn't expensive?

    First off let me say that I don't have a 3d printer myself but do have a family member and a friend that have 3d printers. I am needing to make a model for a replacement lense hood for one of my DSLR lenses because a new one is not available and the aftermarket ones are way overpriced. I did...

    How many fans can I run off one fan header?

    On my new setup, I ended up buying some PWM fan hubs. The sense and PWM wires hook to the motherboard so they can be speed controlled by the motherboard and the power is drawn from a molex connector. The fan hubs support up to 10A total on the hubs that support 10 fans. They are pretty cheap...

    No good Ryzen 5000 series overclocking guides.

    I was having reboots when computer was just sitting there. Ended up upping the RAM voltage by one tick, whatever that was. Need to go back and look at what I had my PBO settings at because I messed with a couple of the cores, thinking it was one of them that was causing the reboots.

    Thanks for the pic. Default settings besides setting up DOCP and voltages for the RAM: Cinebench R23. Single core: 4,977Mhz (score of 1,626) Multi core: 3,866Mhz (score of 25,094) Stock wattage/amperage settings: PPT - 142 TDC - 95 EDC - 140 TDC and EDC are of course what is holding back the...

    No good Ryzen 5000 series overclocking guides.

    I did run Ryzen Master per core optimizer and it sets all but one of the cores at -30. The other one gets set at -17. However, it was not giving me good single core boost or good multicore boost. Going to start over from scratch even though I know I set everything I had changed back to default.

    No good Ryzen 5000 series overclocking guides.

    With all-core boost, yes. 4.4 vs 4.7-4.8 can make a difference. Single core boost can make a difference as well depending on how high you can get it. The really sucky thing is that if you get all-core boost up on the automatic overclocking setting it seems like it lowers single core boost...

    Pertinent specs. ASUS Strix X570-e Ryzen 9 5950x G.Skill DDR4-3600 C16 Seasonic 1000w Platinum CPU and VRMs are water-cooled via a custom loop. 420mm Thermaltake thick copper rad with push/pull 38mm thick fans. Temps at idle are under 40c, and I have seen under 30c with certain BIOS settings...

    Hah, already done. Simply enabling PBO on my setup kills single and all core boost speeds. Going from 5.05Ghz for single core to 4.8 single core and 4.4 to 4.3 all core. Makes no sense. Manually setting the max power levels also makes no sense. EDC set to 190 and single core says it is...

    No good Ryzen 5000 series overclocking guides.

    Looking for a guide that has any actual good information for overclocking Ryzen 5000 series is pretty much impossible. Seeing some random people say to use PBO and set the wattage / amperage limits. Seeing others say to set the voltage lower than stock while others say to set it higher than...

    High flow filter for loop - does one exist?

    Well, the filter I am using is huge and will be very easy to tell if it ever start to clog as the enclosure is clear. I also ended up putting a silver kill-coil in the filter as that will be the easiest place to have it in order to replace it if I ever need to. I agree about those smaller...

    Laptop cooler

    So how much airflow does the integrated grill on the case hinder? Could be as simple as removing any filter crap that is under the grill or even cutting away the grill so the fan can pull more air in. Might also be able to find some fans of the same size and hookup that blow more air. The...

    [H] Thermal Compound TIM Round-up Candidates

They also say the liquid metal ones are difficult to apply. I just built a system and used the Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. With the...

    AM4 Offset heatpipe cooler?

    The block should not be getting warm unless the fins are getting warm as well. The heatpipes, if they are working, should be transferring almost all the heat to the cooling fins.
