    Ryzen Owners Thread

    My fix to the CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT was that I was running an old Windows 10 ISO, I just downloaded the most recent one and no problems since then. Even opted in the Insider's program to get the very latest build.

    It's the square one, that's compatible with the H60 2nd gen (top screws?) and not the 1st gen (side screws) If it'd help you out I'd definitely do it though

    Ryzen Owners Thread

    Ugh, bought an AM4 bracket for my Corsair H60 cooler from long ago (1st gen). Come to find out they made a 2nd gen H60 cooler and this bracket doesn't fit. Whatever, I'm fine with the stock cooler I guess. Companies: Call your shit something else if it's incompatible with the old stuff.

    Ryzen Owners Thread

    I finally have mine up and running, 1700 with MSI Tomahawk B350. The major issue I ran into was that I was using an old Windows 10 ISO. Windows would freeze within 10 minutes of boot and I had no idea why. Finally joined the Insider's program and got the latest version, working like a charm.

    Ryzen Owners Thread

    Yeah I'm pretty sure they'll resolve all of these RAM incompatibilities and speed problems soon and we'll see the true nature of the beast at standard RAM frequencies above 3000Mhz, which is where the platform really shines.

    I went with 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX (3200MHz) but will likely need to downclock them until memory support is more universal in new BIOS releases.

    I bit the bullet and am getting a 1700 with an MSI Tomahawk B350. This is coming from an Ivy Bridge Xeon 1.8GHz, so I'm hoping for a nice jump in performance.

    Torn between 7700K or Ryzen 1700

    I am also torn between a new build involving the Ryzen 1700 or a high end Intel chip. This would be a Mobo+RAM+CPU combo build, everything else is taken care of. I'm currently running a Frankenstein (virtual machine in ESXi with PCI-Passthru video+sound on an Ivy Bridge Xeon) and I can play...

    There's a way to setup an L2L VPN with one static and one dynamic IP, but you must initiate the VPN handshake from the dynamic IP source.

    PC not longer powers up after clean up

    So the PSU and mouse lit up, but did they stay lit up or just momentarily? Can you ensure that the motherboard isn't shorting on a metal edge or screw?

    Diablo 3 Discussion Thread

    I think that's an interesting point that I haven't seen addressed yet. What is it that separates the two schools of thought with rifts? Clear everything, or Kill Guardian and skedaddle? I tend to just kill mobs even after the guardian if the density is good; if I have to search for kills...

    Facebook Wants You To Vote On Tuesday

    I've only voted in one presidential election, but my experience had been that it wasn't one of 'I made a difference' but of 'I could have been doing something more useful with my time'. The system is excellent at creating apathy, so much so that even once you realize that it's setup that way...

    I *finally* got a Carapace to drop, after months of farming. 3 sockets, rerolled +Sentry Dmg, I'm good to go. Dropped the Encasement for Hexing Pants and now looking for T&T and starting to farm for HFA. Life is better now.

    Windows 10 Tech Preview is available

    I haven't looked in this thread in case people have already solved this problem, but if you are getting an 0x00005d on installing it on VirtualBox, you need to set the guest OS as Windows 8.1, not just Windows 8 or 'Other Windows'. You will also need the "Execute Disable Bit" enabled (it...

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Yeah I was going to do that but my server doesn't do VT-d, so I had to split the two drives, format one of them in the ESXi instance and manually copy over the files from the original ZFS server to the new one. Thankfully I have less than 15 VMs I had to do this for. I'll be re-adding the disk...

    They need to increase mob density at the very least for Whimsyshire, it's cute and all the first time but there's nothing to do there but beat up a couple of horses and flowers every 5 minutes of walking around.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    I want to move from a baremetal install of OmniOS+Napp-it to the VMWare all-in-one. I have both running concurrently now, but of course all of the data resides on the baremetal. If I physically move the disks (perform a zfs export beforehand) then will VMWare require me to format them to VMFS...

    Cisco Network and Switch for CCNA Practice

    I purchased my lab equipment from eBay, and my boss gave me an old 1841 router the company was no longer using a while back. I would resell them (2x 2950 switches, 2 low-end routers that I can't recall their model number, 1x 3640) but boxing them up and all that jazz is a hassle. I had no...

    Which one you like: RAR, ZIP, 7z, TAR?

    TAR isn't compression, it just neatly puts files and directories into a single file. Normally one would then compress it with zip, 7z, gzip, etc. If you're sticking with Windows, to keep it simple, just use zip, 7z or gzip. It's possible that the file that was written from the Windows...

    Well I think tonight was my last night in Diablo 3. My laptop can't handle decent FPS and the video driver crashed tonight in mid-game, and I'm basically tossing my hands up in the air and throwing in the towel. If only x58 motherboards weren't so damned expensive, I'd just game on one of...

    You can occasionally find a rare trifecta ring/ammy and boost your sheet DPS, in fact I did that for a while until I found a legendary that did similar damage output plus a legendary effect, or a socketed SoJ/RoRG

    I always salvage mine, mostly because it's so much faster than selling, and because you will use them for Enchanting. Once you get Boon of the Hoarder gem, you won't worry about gold anymore.
