Well... I figured out something.
The RAM wasn't dead. The motherboard probably is.
Tomorrow I'll be heading to Freegeek to pick up another H55 board and CPU. I need H55 boards anyway, so if it turns out it's working, then whatever.
In other news, I bought 4GB more RAM to even it out.
Since I've been doing some tests lately involving how applications use the video card, I thought I'd write down the process of gathering this data and presenting it. After all, any sufficiently "scientific" test should be repeatable by others, and being repeatable means knowing what to do!
What data am I gathering?
This is to see how the CPU is being used by the application. The higher the usage overall, the more likely it is to bottleneck the GPU. I may omit
Went to North Van to buy RAM today.
16GB for C$60, or around 33 GBP.
Bought it off some hypebeast wearing the latest nonsense lol. So, basically just your typical North Van teen.
Will have pictures in my later blog post.
Got a hard drive today. Here's a random pic of the train ride there.
Also, the X3440 flip I've been working on is mostly assembled. I don't have the X3440 yet; that's why the stock cooler has messy wiring.
I need a USB 3 to USB 2 header adapter. Hopefully the one I ordered off eBay from a local seller, same city, will come in soon.
What do y'all think about a FX flip? They usually come with good amounts of RAM, which I need, so it's something I'm l
First build that's on here:
Xeon X3440 - $25
8GB DDR3 (Part of the 16GB kit) - $25
H55M-S2H (With i3-530) - $35
GTX 1060 3GB - $100
Kingston A400 120GB - $28
Seagate 1TB HDD - $20
Antec Earthwatts Green 500W - $40
Kopplen N51 - $53 (New)
I'm currently waiting for the Xeon to arrive. In the meantime, I'm just using the i3.
I'll be documenting pickups, how I get them and just fun image posts of getting the parts in the future.
Tim Sweeney on buying exclusives:
The creative director of Phoenix Point and CEO of Snapshot Games on their exclusivity deal with EGS:
"Keep in mind that we knew there would be backlash. We knew there would be refunds. If we had to refund 100% of currently pre-orders, we'd still be in the black. We didn't make the decision lightly"
"Obviously I can't go into details about the deal - but it's for a minimum guarantee -

i already buy nzxt krarken x72 for the cpu and put it in the front
now i was confuse about my gou which type or brand should i buy to make it best cooling
note: im an architecture and gaming but i buy this pc for my work so i work a lot at the gpu for rendering for hours so that why
This is a frequently asked question from people who are curious about programming. So here's the short answer: it depends.
This was brought up in a conversation about how Windows reports processor utilization, whether it's the CPU or GPU. You may be tempted to think that processor utilization is or should be the percentage of how much the processor is being used over time rather than something like idle time, which is defined as the CPU running the OS's idle task. In a previous blog post, I did touch upon this, but I don't think the reasoning I put painted the entire picture. Basically I said:
Since May 2018, the management of Facebook's in-practice allowed and posted content policy has been officially guided by Atlantic Council , which is basically the propaganda and disinformation arm of NATO, funded by, among others, the US government and weapons manufacturers, and which is notorious for advocating for war against NATO challengers, calling for acts of terrorism to be committed against NATO challengers like Russia, and for operating social media manipulation projects that falsely
A Brief Overview of my Insights on the Microbiome.
It is becoming more and more apparent in this day and age where we are starting to see more revelations regarding the impact of one's microfauna on things, such as from the digestive system, to the nerve system. I would like to make it clear that there is indeed quite a large relationship between the bacteria, and other microorganisms that live on us, and bodily processes. This however is most prominently due to evolution.
Note: This is a copypasta of a reply I did to a topic.
I think the VRAM thing is more complicated than "[Game] uses X amount of VRAM, therefore, you need more than X amount of VRAM these days" for performance. I've been reading on the interwebs from people that games will request more VRAM than they actually need and they may never use it, much like how apps may overshoot how much memory they need (yes this is actually a thing: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20091002-00
After a few days of measuring and planning in my head I think I've came up with a layout that will work and looks visually appealing to me. The two boxes on the bottom are for drive bays and i have about 4 extra inches in the back in case I need to make it wider or for cable management. I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory. If anybody sees any reason why this won't work or any reason they think it would look like s*** let me know.
This will be a very short blog post, but I hope that it helps someone.
I've noticed that many people learning C++ struggle with understanding pointers, references, variables, and the const keyword. So I plan to write a few charts and some words that can be used as a sort of reference to help. I will not try to go above and beyond in explaining what pointers, references, and const are, as there are already many resources that do wonderful jobs of that.

When it comes to making a program for a computer, while there are a plethora of languages and ways to make an application, there's only two types of both applications and languages. This post will cover what those types are.
Programming Language Types
There are two basic types of programming languages: low level and high level.
Low level languages are the "hardware" languages, which are typically defined into two more types:
Machine language, which are literall
I have been reading a lot on the forums lately concerning data collection, conspiracies in government, big brother, education systems, health systems and the ilk of such machinations. I think the thing that worries me more is not the ideas, not the possible truth or realities of such things but the mindset that leads people to these discussions and the health of the personality that attaches to specific ideals within them.
There are many aspects to modern life that have brought
IMPORTANT EDIT: Link to my website is incorrect as I am migrating to a new datacentre!
Hi all! It's been a while, but boy have I been busy! Over the last few months, I have acquired my own server! A HP ProLiant DL380 G6 to be precise. While I will post about that separately, here I would like to show you just one of the things I am doing with it.
I am using Folding@Home and BOINC to allow my server to do computing for the greater good of ma
UPDATE: I've edited this blog too many times because I always think I'm done, but then another idea comes up. *sigh* But I should be done now.
With AMD's semi-recent announcement of their server processors using the so-called "Chiplet" design, I thought it'd be a good idea to talk about how this could affect other processor types. People have pointed to GPUs being the next logical step, but I've been hesitant to jump on that and this blog is to discuss why.
I have failed traditional weight loss. Mostly as others due to lack of motivation and commitment. Diet is not horrible, but not great. I never took the initiative to learn to cook as a kid, even though my mom cooked constantly. So when college came around and I was free reign, I didn't take care of myself. It's taken years of mistakes to learn to manage myself better, but damage is done.
The reason I'm writing this is two fold.
1. If I expose it to criticism, I have to face it head o
Soo to make this more clear, the rants to do with my experiance on multiple places for buying and selling. These include Ebay, LTT classified thread and Facebook/ Direct messeging.
So as a buyer their are things expected of ya, being able to purchase the product, be intrested in the product and be able to communicate with the seller if needed.
As being a buyer on Ebay three times now (positive n Negative) and a buyer here on the LTT forums i tend to be unders
Lately I've been working on a light temporal sampling algorithm that might be able to avoid some aliasing by adjusting the sampling rate. I usually do things like this strictly in MatLab, because it makes it overwhelmingly easy to build and run these kind of simulations, and then explore the results in potentially interactive graphs. But there are a few problems with that approach:
The MatLab IDE is overwhelmingly slow to startup and to compile and run programs on every machine I have ever
