So out of the hundreds of systems you've built, you've seen a single cpu fail, and from that are making the statement that AMD Ryzen CPU's fail at a much higher rate than Intel?
What a rediculous statement.
I have a couple failed usb flash drives on my desk ...
They are made with cheaper memory. Take one apart, I've seen micro SD cards literally soldered to a PCB with USB controller. It's no secret those are made with slower, cheaper, and less durable memory. All other components are made with...
If you read what they wrote, they said speed and durability.
An SSD will provide for reliable back up, a USB flash disk is less reliable.
What did you expect them to say?
"No our usb flash disk are trash and will corrupt your data for sure"
I mean their software might be playing it safe
Overclocking and most specifically over volting can smoke a chip without exceeding temperature limits. In your case you're likely ok to push it some without much worry. But if you think you cannot destroy a chip without overheating it, you are wrong.
Honestly my opinion with this regarding a lack of reliability testing for usb flash is similar to the lack of testing for cars ability to float.
We know they don't float, it's not the point. Cars aren't meant to float.
Flash drives are cheap and portable data transfer devices. Not long...
Would you like me to mail you a couple failed drives?
They are unreliable because they are made to be cheap, reliability isn't a requirement.
Go ahead and take unnecessary risks with your data and disregard the "hard proof" from multiple people who have had drives fail on them.
Flash drives fail. I've had several fail. SSDs are better, but also can be less than ideal for cold storage.
Mechanical drives are still king here.
Nenu I was going to say the same thing. People telling you they've had drives fail is actual facts.
My thoughts are this is the only reason to ever use drive clones. Or you're managing hundreds (or even dozens) of desktops that you need to be able to redeploy quickly, most likely for the same reason.
I think both of you are blasphemous, but meh, I guess to each his own.
I would never recommend doing what you say you do all the time, and cant imagine this being preferable in a home environment for any reason.
So the 5600g will run those games, likely medium low at 1080p.
If cost is your primary concern get the 5600g.
If gaming performance means anything, the 580 will slaughter the 5600g iGPU.
Only you can decide what's important for you.
You can always add a GPU later, or not. *Don't skimp on...
I'd go the 580 route. Both would allow you to upgrade in the future.
The am4 platform would likely be slightly more upgradable, but I think it's a wash, and you'll get much better performance in games with a dGPU.
I only back up select files. System images just take longer.
It fits better with me regularly reinstalling windows (every few years or so) on hardware upgrades. When you change hardware suddenly your system image is no longer ideal. Every time I reinstall windows, step 1 is hook up external...
Just going full brick it....
Update:. Bios f31 seems to work, it's just Windows is borked. This seems less bad, boot loop is fixed anyway, that made me nervous
Windows start-up repair un-borked windows.
F51g updated all good;
In case anyone else ever happens upon this; and the rediculously...
Tried flashing most current bios with Q-flash (the manual and website instructions for all this are basically non-existant), and it said the bios was invalid.
About to try flashing in steps of 3-5 versions. Will take me 4 or more steps, as I'm on the launch bios from over 5 years ago and to...
None of those look bad enough to be an issue. Maybe depending what they are, some sensitive signal lines could have issues with the little nicks but think they avoid putting those on the top layer.
You would know if you made those scratches. I did this "once" when a screw driver slipped off...
I don't remember the specifics. But I had a router (not long ago, like last year) that had a "security flaw" that was common among routers. Low risk and obscure. But windows by default disabled software required for file sharing to work on networks using this old protocol. To get it to work...
windows has been borked like this for 30 years. I recall an issue with win 98 and win ME at a lan party where everyone with win ME could see each other, but anyone with win98 could not. They were basically the same version of windows. Unfortunately everything you want to run runs on windows...
I'm not actually against any of it. Really just trying to highlight the media stupidity I guess, and then falling into a really stupid argument over actual nothing on the internet.
I'm also struggling a bit that it's "fact" that fusion would create less waste, we don't actually have even a...
