    New 5800X Running Hot

    5900x here. Funny with eco mode on still have all 12 cores go to 4.7 during prime 95. Not sure where the loss would be. Is certainly better from a voltage and heat numbers. Seeing 1.5v makes me nervous. Our Intel 130nm northwood was like last time I saw 1.5v on a cpu. switched my...

    New 5800X Running Hot

    Been fiddling. Tried setting the bios cpu temp limit to 75. Also turned on energy saver something mode. Then switched to ryzen master from and uninstalled asus suite. Cpu is running much cooler at way lower voltages now, just how I expected. Am also running latest beta bios. Now I am...

    New 5800X Running Hot

    I feel your pain brother. Personally been stuck on team blue since core2duo. My new 5900x on an ekw 360 certainly throws some unexpected voltage and temp readings. 1.47v would be a cause for panic on any recent intel chip. Apparently its no big deal here because it's only few cores at a...

    Unreal Engine is Getting Destructable Environment Support

    Destructible environments are the gaming version of TV eye candy. Even when all else gets boring, satisfying destruction is good enough to autopilot for a bit. Those videos comparing far cry 2 to far cry 5 fire and destructability were incredibly damning of gaming industry's """progress.""""

    Nvidia Releases "Creator Ready" RTX Drivers

    Change of heart? Hahaha thats a good one. I expect this is to prop up 2080ti sales at current price point by appealing to the lowest end pro line series buyers. I remeber when you could flash bios and install quadro drivers to make any card a pro card. For both ati and nvidia.

    Facebook Employees Had Access to Millions of User Passwords Stored in Plain Text

    Personally I love when passwords are hashed but not salted so all you have to do is copy in a a known hash and you are in. Knowing to look for this I was involved in multiple infosec projects at previous employers to change the system before anyone caught on. To say nothing of government...

    All Myspace Data Before 2016 is Gone

    With all the stealth censorship and other shenanigans I've been expecting a Myspace resurgence. Myspace was silly. Twitter is more noxious than divorce court. Facebook is faulty. Instragram is gross. Tumbler is toxic.

    Not All RTX 2080s are Created Equal

    I actually would be interested in seeing a comparison of fullsize 2080ti showing power, noise, and fps from different release versions with default overclocked and upgraded coolers.

    Netflix Brings Dragon's Dogma and Other Japanese Anime to the Platform

    Dragons dogma and witcher are coming to Film? Awesome! Oh its Netflix circa 2019 post death note. Face with a frown. Seems world is hellbent on convincing me that George Lucas was the least of my problems when it comes to crapping on my beloved franchises.

    A Tour of Deepcool's Fan Factory

    Going through drama with deep cool right now. Discovered their early version of a AIO case was leak prone. Found my system off and water pooled. After 18 emails and dozens of pictures they refused to send me a non leaking waterblock... because my pictures didn't show the leak spraying out...

    Windows 7 Is One Obstinate OS

    Why shouldn't windows 7 be the definitive gaming OS? Load up windows 10 original release and then a current build. It has been all downgrades and crapware. For first time since vista I've been fiddling with gaming in linux. Just be prepared with a ps2 keyboard and a usb2 port to install 7.

    Philadelphia Passes Ban on Cashless Stores; Amazon Go Plans Said to Be in Jeopardy

    I switched back to cash over a year ago and have loved it. No more worrying if the clueless person swiped the card 3 times charged you 3 times. Or if the food server decided to add a some extra tip onto your bill. Or if the clearing house that store uses has hugely unsecured data and now your...

    Philadelphia Passes Ban on Cashless Stores; Amazon Go Plans Said to Be in Jeopardy

    Don't just ask what will our "betters" do with this control in circa current year. Ask how could some future asshole abuse this power and how could your kids and grandkids push back? I assure there are machivellians architects who have. Buy too many twinkies? Social credit score dropped...

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

    MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GAMING X TRIO Review @ [H]

    Was using this exact card the other day. Far cry new dawn with HD texture pack @4k showed over 10gb GPU ram usage. Seemed a shame for such a new and expensive card. That farcrys 14gb download of "hd" textures still looked worse then some of my old skyrim texture mods that were 1/10 the...

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

    As a kid I hit 110mph running from police. Fastest ever driven was 130+mph going down a mountain pass Over about 100mph those stupid spoilers become very important. About 115 the physics make most cars drive like they weigh nothing. Lite crosswind can make you jump lanes without realizing...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Development "Is Far from Over"

    My favorite game KOTOR was delayed multiple times by over a year. Good delays add more content! No man sky could really have used 6+ month delay. Is this refried beans and twice baked potato or step-management keeps opening the oven every 10 minutes and Turkey can't cook?
