    Old decrepit Compaq laptop "optimization"

    If you're actually interested in playing with that laptop, I'd go with a cheaper cpu (t8100 is $6.51) and research how to do a fslx mod to overclock it

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    Should support it fine? As it turns out, I have the same motherboard heh. Not sure if mine is rev1 or what though. Sure IPC is the same, but 32nm means less power consumption and higher clocks. I'm running 4ghz with 1.25v set via offset. No LLC so actual load volts is around 1.15vish iirc. If...

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    save your money and get an x5670 for $20 instead. 22x200=4400 if you can keep it cooled. otherwise, x5650/5660 are even cheaper but it'd help if you have a motherboard that can reliably use the turbo multipliers (not sure if gb can or not) if you're aiming for an aggressive overclock.

    I5-7600K second opinion.

    If SKT_OCC is required to be grounded, a pencil would suffice. Otherwise, another skt_occ point could be found on the motherboard and grounded directly there. As far as the reserved pins, some people take the gamble and don't isolate with no ill effects. It's reported that the lands on the...

    New Tool Detects If Your PC Is Vulnerable To Meltdown And Spectre

    Vulnerable to both? Windows update should be good enough for meltdown, but spectre requires a microcode update. You can use hwinfo to check your microcode. See the post above yours to apply the microcode via windows.

    WD Easystore External Discussion

    Just get the EMAZ drives. Either use molex-sata adapters or remove/insulate the orange 3.3v. You could go for Made in China drives but that'd get you the inferior 128mb EFZX. edit: are sata pins single-sided? If so, you could easily cover the 3.3v ones with nail polish for a reversible fix. Or...

    400mbps shouldn't be an issue. Maybe if they're particularly overloaded.. I only use 4 connections (out of the 50 allowed) and it's enough to saturate 120mbps down. Hell, 4 might not even be necessary.

    newsdemon is a highwinds reseller (usenetserver is highwinds). They might employ some sort of qos when under high load, but otherwise should be comparable (notice they both advertise 3258+ days retention)

    Retention doesn't really mean anything if you're after illegal content. Takedowns are automated nowadays, and you definitely need an automated approach (sonarr for tv shows, couchpotato for movies, etc). Otherwise, newsdemon is a highwinds reseller and should be decent. If it doesn't meet your...

    "Free Headers" is listed as an included feature Looks like newsdemon is a highwinds reseller. Does anyone know if they allow multiple simultaneous IPs? I have a multi-wan setup and am currently using frugalusenet without issues (at $5/mo).
