    Why bother installing OS? AI can just simulate it for you.

    But note that StackOverFlow is banning the use of it because it is being found that it is very very inaccurate..

    4 Generations at the same time?

    I owned one of those :( and shortly after realized my mistake and got a Northwood C, think that was when my real overclocking career started.

    Meta threatens to pull news from Facebook in response to Congress bill.

    I do love how politicians do crap like this though.. WTF does news have to do with the defense of a country, they always do this, slip it in something unrelated where they know few people will hopefully see it. On that note, good, screw facebook.

    Swap 5950X for 5800x3d?

    Have you considered over clocking the 5950x at all? to get a higher core frequency on more cores vs the boost on 1 or 2?

    Swap 5950X for 5800x3d?

    because MSFS 2020 is just a steaming pile of poorly optimized crap like every other version before it. Have you look at some benchmarks and reviews of MSFS with other CPUs to confirm if the extra Mhz would make any difference?

    Best SSD currently ?

    People forget to mention the Kingston KC3000 , things a beast and rated at the top of most tests. Samsung 980 PRO - ya fast, when it works with their broken super cache and your cache not clearing and thus performance tanks to crap. WD or Kingston or the SK Hynix Sure if you need massive IOPS...

    System won't power on at all after rebuild into new case

    Then you are doing something wrong, there are not issues with the AM4 socket if your cpu is put in properly, You seat the CPU, properly, and put down the arms and it locks into place and the CPU can not move at all, if it is moving, you either broke something or have something wrong.

    Need for Speed Unbound

    Or card makers are doing things with out testing it either, but agree, games have been released in "Alpha" status for years, once pre-orders started and all the pre-order tools jumped on board, paying for a game with out even a demo, only pre-rendered crap as an example, game companies knew they...

    Scalpers are struggling to sell the RTX 4080 above MSRP, but retailers won't let them return the cards

    Bloody love it. Lets be real, how many people "accidentally" buy a $1200 + video card, really, any video card. So I could see more stores simply continueing this forward with mid to high end cards of no refunds, period, sorry, too bad so sad!

    Win 11 on Virtual Box 7 constantly freezing

    Which drive do you have it on , the 500GB Samsung 980 or the other? Can you try it n the opposite of the one you got now? Could also download Mint Linux or Ubuntu and set up a VM and see if it happens with that as well. If it happens with another OS than the issues i VirtualBox / your system

    Questions about M.2 adaptors - Will one work if I already have 2 M.2 drives plugged into MB? Any recommendations on models?

    Ya, and being the Sabrent name, tend to hope they are better built than most of the random no name ones all over amazon and other stores , with the same PCB but weird random company names on em.

    "nVidia finally responds to 4090 cables melting..."

    I would just make the clip the full width of the plug, vs a little tiny one in the middle, thus lower the chance for wiggle to even happen to the point the plug begins to come out, if it is attached, or prevent as Nexus showed, the contacts not being made well on all points. Even move to a...

Hard to say really - I mean you could clean it off entirely, format it again clean and then try moving it back and...

    4k monitor for wife - Blender/Zbrush and light gaming

    Does it advertise great color reproduction, or have you check actual reviews of it? Many monitors claim X% of RGB space or what ever, but when reviewed often fall short of the claims.

    got a reminder of just how much faster a system is with SSD

    So long as you have backups of any important data, cause the only thing raid is giving you is more space vs any real performance in this situation, and far more risk.

    got a reminder of just how much faster a system is with SSD

    They got to clear out old inventory somehow, cause I doubt anyone is actually buying them from stores, so all the OEM get em dirt cheap and keep pushing em out.

    Building wife a 3d pc - Blender and Zbrush

    Have you considered also a proper drawing tablet to go with it? Wacom or one of the others? As for GPU's until you get into some serious 4k+ renders and such, often mid range cards have enough power for most 3d work so you dont need to buy the highest end "gaming" card, which then you may even...

    Intel Finalizes 'Intel on Demand' Pay-As-You-Go Mechanism for CPUs

    Easily do it with time based license keys, you generate an ID based code from your side - take that apply it to Intel, they give you a unique license key that is now tied to that CPU and has a time limit on it, once it expires, rinse repeat. This also means the license can be locked to that CPU...

    Apple Sued for Allegedly Deceiving Users With Privacy Settings

    But Apple themselves state they do not collect anything that can identify you? I understand the giving of the data, but then Apple is taking different data and then combining it on their end which in turn = identifies you. The point here being, Apple is not being 100% transparent with their...

    Apple Sued for Allegedly Deceiving Users With Privacy Settings

    Which is good if they have been audited by external 3rd parties, not paid for by Apple. We also know though this is mostly BS, enough data points allows anyone to be reverse identified. anonymized data has be shown to be inaccurate.

    Apple Sued for Allegedly Deceiving Users With Privacy Settings

    Apple will get a slap on the wrist, have to pay a couple million, or 10's of millions and will keep doing it, just as Google has over and over after all their slaps on the wrist from their violations... Easier to pay for forgiveness, than to ask for permissions with big tech.
