    Old Socket-754 Motherboard help, SATA not working

    It's been a VERY long time but if I recall correctly the VIA VT8237 controller on your motherboard doesn't recognize anything other than SATA1 drives. It was a problem fixed with later revisions of the controller (VT8237A (maybe) and VT8237R) I believe. SATA2 and 3 are supposed to default back...

    ryzen 5000 real consumption?

    Why do you think your motherboard (B450M Steel series correct?) BIOS offers the option to select an XMP profile if it isn't compatible? While it is not guaranteed to work, it is possible to select XMP and test if it works.

    Sony scrubbing all mentions of the KOTOR remake from their sites

    Google gets its way, bakes a user-tracking ad platform directly into Chrome

    I play WOT and was not aware of this. That will probably finally get me to abandon the game after something like 13 years. The advances they have made in the game have been great- the audio in particular has come a long way. But for some reason they keep shooting them selves in the foot with...

    GPU Cooler Degrading? Interesting issue..

    Wasn’t the design specification for that card for it to run at 90 degrees? I seem to remember people getting their panties in a bunch about it. Could be misremembering and it’s some other card, this old brain is getting pretty full.

    For those that like the small, minimalist view with just the list of games, why not just use small mode? After you set it, Steam will always open to just the list of games, no extra crap.
