    Windows 10 is getting a modern Task Manager for your games.

    Are you upgrading your quad core in 2020?

    Bought a R3 1300X bout a year an a half ago on ebay for less than the price of a 1200 at the time. Two months ago, buddy of mine offered me his R5 1600 for $50. I couldn't say no. Sold the 1300X for damn near what I bought it for. Did I need 6 cores? Not really but, was to good a deal to pass up.

    i7 930 owner rejoining the Red Team, buy now or wait?

    Honestly not a bad route. I always see everyone reccomending some high end hardware for the most basic tasks anymore. I think it all comes down to each users specific use case. I'm currently sitting on my "budget" Ryzen. Does EVERYTHING I need and plays pretty much any of my games anything at...

    3700x $285 eBay bin

    Closest for me is 100 miles north. So 200 mile round trip. Even driving the car (30mpg+), i'm lookin at $10-$15 in gas (depending on price of the day) and probably about 4 hours of my time if i don't stop anywhere else. So... yea.

    Ryzen 7 3700X Trades Blows with Core i7-10700, 3600X with i5-10600K: Early ES Review

    Anyone think this will happen? I was gonna grab a 3600 or 3600X soon but I may very well wait.

    Capture Carbon in Concrete Made With CO2

    Working in an industry that allows me first hand views of rail transported coal. I can pretty much agree with this. Most of what moves by rail out of the Appalachian region is either metallurgical (for coke production) or export.

    Intel Core i3-9350KF Review: Coffee Lake's Stagnant Waters

    I think 4 cores are fine, based on your usage case and the amount of money you spend. My $60 Ryzen 1300X (was cheaper than the R3 1200 at the time) does everything I need. That obviously doesn't apply to everyone.

    Western Digital: Expect More Energy-Assisted Tech For 24 TB & Beyond

    I feel like there's a point were the potential data loss from a failed drive (yes, even in a redundancy setup) out weighs the benefits of having so much storage on a single drive. Granted.. thats coming from someone who has two 1TBs in Raid 1 and they're not even a quarter full.

    Or in the case of where I currently work. They cut everything to the bone to boost the stock price and line their own pockets and leave just before it all comes crashing down.

    Join two Cat6 cables together, outside.

    Agreed. Although i guess you could still use copper if you want. At the very least run it in conduit.. uh.. whats the standard for underground low voltage lines? 12" down? 16"?

    Motherboard RAID 1

    Yea, I can see RAID 1 being of use, atleast protects you from a single drive failure. I use it for a general storage pool (with periodic copies/refreshes to an external drive that stays in my drawer) on my main rig.

    Ford Mustang Mach E Leak: Mustang goes Electric

    I just don't see a competent fuel replacement any time soon. We might as well start figuring out how to efficiently synthesize it from CO2. Assuming what I've read is correct in that we can do that. Best short term solution to green energy I can see is solar panels on individual...

    Windows 10 1909

    LTSC is the closest you'll get. Even then, some things should've been left alone or not added at all. Like having a new settings menu... what was wrong with control panel? And then you give me access to both? Thats redundant in a stupid way. I will say, for my two laptops, having Win 10 search...

    Intel returns to Atom series - Tremont core announced

    Already using a 9020. Honestly its been best pfsense box i've had so far. Celeron g1820te, 4GBs of RAM and a dual intel gigabit card. I may pick up a cheap i3-4130t to either keep on the side or just throw in anyway for the AES support when 2.5 comes out. I really dont see me replacing that...

    Intel returns to Atom series - Tremont core announced

    Wish someone would make an ARM mini itx board with dual gigabit (INTEL), and m.2 or msata slot, and at a reasonable price. Would make a nice pfsense setup.

    pfsense on old Athlon questions

    Missing on AES is the only downfall i see, so if you don't need that then give it a shot, power usage would be the only other concern. Modern hardware has came long ways in idle or low usage states. Reminds me, i used to run smoothwall on a Pentium 1 with 128mb of ram, an old gateway 2000...

    Post your "rate my cables" here

    Not much but she's mine. Specs: The 1300x, motherboard, and RAM were all caught for good deals on ebay. I paid less at the time for the CPU than what the R3 1200s were going for. Eventual plans are a Ryzen 5 3600(x) and 16GBs of RAM north of 3000Mhz. I want to replace the RX480 but just...

    Windows 7 updates now working with Ryzen/Skylake?

    Any luck installing a 3000 Ryzen on an X370?

    If anyone is curious. Asrock put out an updated BIOS for Ryzen 3000 support (P5.40) yesterday. Went ahead and flashed my board even though I'm still on my old 1300x.

    Any luck installing a 3000 Ryzen on an X370?

    Since this is related. Does anyone think the 3000 series on an X370 (Asrock Gaming k4 here) will have any issues with higher clocked RAM? I see they're certified for 3200 stock. I'm talking like 3333, 3400, or 3600mhz as examples.
