I'll preface this with saying I'm a student.
What I wanted costs about $540, and I have $30.
Someone an hour drive away from here is looking at buying my laptop for her kid for about $250.
Should I just sell my mATX G4560 system for $300 (worth about $450 currently on retail)? I'd be losing money on it, but it's an upgrade nonetheless.
I feel like I'm being ripped off living in this dorm. Could just go live with the parents while in college, and have cheaper living arrangement, if not free.
Nobody in my area needs their lawns mowed or dogs walked, and there's not a lot of options around for proper work.

I have a 280x (ASUS TOP) that idles around 50C and can reach 82 while playing some games like Titanfall 2 or the Witcher 3.

I've considered maybe I should replace the old thermal pads and put new ones. Problem is I don't know the right thickness. Could I buy thinner ones and stack them or something? There's 0,5mm, 1mm pads, I have no idea here.

Ok, so I have a pretty solid understanding of Windows, but I can't figure out why my laptop has been freezing randomly since I clean installed Win 7. It was fine before the wipe. The only thing I've put on it are manually downloaded windows updates (that work fine on other PCs), plus two drivers. Literally nothing else. I ran through the entire install process again and had the same problem. Made it halfway through ninite downloading the first program and froze again. The ISO is verified (intel usb 3.0 drivers inserted) and I've scanned the HDD/Ram to oblivion.

Any suggestions on how to tackle this would be great

So can I run an Ethernet cable next to power cables? I've been reading extremely conflicting information ranging from "you'll be fine" to "keep them like 10'' apart" to "what the fuck are you doing, you won't get any signal like that".

Distance about 40 meters, I want to bring the wonders of technology into a shed/summer house thingy. I'll likely be spending quite a bit of time there, so I want both good speed and small latency.

Consider investing in optical so you don't have to worry about length or putting it next to the powerline.

So it has an inbuilt watercooler ?

>> No.61520933

Yeah the gpu will be the same. The cooler is the main difference (as you can clearly see, this one is watercooled), so the factory clocks (base and boost, both gpu and memory) are likely to be higher, plus you'll be able to overclock better.
When distributers (like Gigabyte) add this fancy stuff they also tend to pick out the better chips, while the worse ones (that will overclock poorly) will go to less fancy ones.

My 3 year old r9 290 has been giving me trouble lately (occasional artifacts or game freezes that go away after reseating it) so I'm considering offloading to some miner on eBay for around $200-$250 maybe a little more. Then using that to get a 1060 or a 580x because then even with the current gouging prices it'd be like 200 something for one after the eBay money.

Is this stupid? Should I just wait until prices go down again? Try and RMA the 290 and wait for new cards?

>> No.61521218

I'm not an expert but this sounds like the best way.

Alternatively you could ping the proxy server itself, but that's less robust because the server machine could be up but something could have gone wrong with the actual proxying.

I was just gifted a Switch, and I want to plug it on my PC monitor but it doesn't work.

Can I even do that?

I've never used any HDMI device ever, I don't have a flatscreen TV as I only use my computer for everything media related and gaming and don't own recent consoles (other than the Switch now).

There is an HDMI port on my monitor, as well as a DVI and a VGA.

Since you can just dock the Switch and plug it in your TV through HDMI, I thought it'd work on a monitor too.

But when I dock the damn thing and plug it into the monitor, it just doesn't work.

I use the monitor buttons to switch display input to HDMI, the screen goes blank for like 5 seconds and it automatically switches back to DVI.

If I completely unplug my PC from the monitor and put only the Switch, well it's just blank and I can't even access the menu.

That does count as a stupid question, right?

It means a filder or a file with name usbasp on your drive C. Windows treats paths and names case insensitive, so C:\USBASP and c:\usbasp is the same.

It seems there is a typo in that manual. If the firmware file is named atmega8.2011-05-28.hex and it is in c:\usbasp then it probably shold be c:\usbasp\atmega8.2011-05-28.hex in that command.

In that case the answer is maybe. It depends on your specific RAM. That is to say, *yours*, not someone else's.
Averages and higher clocked SKUs of similar kits are generally a good indicator of what you might be able to get, but you can never be 100% sure that you can reach those speeds until you try for yourself. Your particular kit might not do it, even if it is most likely that it will.

In short, if you want to be sure that you can "safely" run your RAM at 2933 MHz, you buy a kit that is rated for 2933 MHz or above. Otherwise the only way to find out if your kit can manage it is to simply overclock and stress test it.

For some reason, my windows 10 install drive won't detect my M.2 SSD.
The bios detects that the disk is connected, the EZ flash utility can open the file system , but the system claims that nothing is plugged into the m.2 slot, so the drive kind of ghost rides in that it exists but it allegedy isn't plugged into anything. Under NVME settings, I there are no options to change but the drive does appear as being plugged in.
What should I do? I can't get the W10 disk to detect it no matter what, and the fact that the BIOS claims that my M.2 slot is empty does not help. ASUS motherboard, with the newest BIOS update.

I guess they removed the quick settings options from the regular settings options, cause when you scroll down you see everything and that's it.

There doesn't seem to be an option for it there after scrolling down a second time to expand it, though, and that "Audio path" bar disappears when you do it.

myVar = Myvar + 10;

myAVariable = new A;

Uh hi,I'm having a bit of trouble with installing windows or linux for that matter. My dumbass ECS H81H3 doesn't have an F12 boot menu so I have to nuke the HDD everytime I want to install something. Thing is that windows gives me I/O errors ad infinitum when I install it to the main partition. It has no problem making/ moving partitions though for some reason.

And Linux(yes the kernel only) has a problem with my BIOS' way of setting boot priority in a way that it breaks grub and the boot entirely

I got this mac for free today and I don't have much experience with these machines. I have 2 questions.
1. Will this machine run smoothly with windows 10 enterprise LTSB?
2. Is it worth adding an SSD?

Got this machine for free because it was having GPU kernel panics due to a failed poly-tantalum capacitor on the mobo that supplies power the the GPU framebuffer. Fixed by installing a patch that lowers GPU performance slightly, although the patch only works under OSX.

I already have 8gb ram that I salvaged from an old laptop. I can also permanently stop the GPU crashes by replacing the cap on the mobo for like $1.50 and then I'd be free to install any OS with no risk of crashes.

Use rsync to mirror the files you want to work on to your local computer and then sync them back when you're done editing. Unless it's just one or two things. In which case I recommend you stop being a faggot and deal with the latency.
