  1. Past hour
  2. was wondering what is the best value CPU I can get for $200 or under? in the case of my system it will be paired with a GTX 1050 ti from ASUS I currently have my eyes on a ryzen 7 1700 https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-1700-16-Core-3-7-GHz/dp/B06WP5YCX6/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1542368870&sr=8-6&keywords=amd+ryzen+7
  3. I was hoping the same thing but unfortunately that's not how electricity works apparently. I wish I did my research before having to replace a router, switch, and IP camera (all in 3 different rooms on 3 different UPSs that were plugged into surge protectors).

    Little help with my homework

    Inquiry Based Learning Inquisitive based learning is a way of obtaining information by asking various questions about the things you are curious about. Inquisitive learning is an excellent way to learn as it motivates curiosity which leads to more questions. Inquisitive learning also elevates thinking from low-order to higher-order thinking which benefits us as time goes on because the more we do inquiries of higher-order thinking, the better we get at it which leads to learning much easier. Inquiry based learning gathers information by asking questions, which is taking information from experience from other people and their opinions which means that you can also determine others feelings toward the topic at hand. Inquiry is also a scientific way of thinking since scientists imagine, speculate, interpret, criticize, and create something out of what he has discovered and with these, learning would not just be fun but intriguing and mysterious as well. Since Inquisition is drived by one's curiosity, and curiosity is experience, it will go well with the saying "experience is the best teacher" since we experience the learning first hand and even getting advices and corrections from others and curiosity drives us to go further on our researches as we humans are of a curious mind. Inquisitive based learning also develops our logical or rational thinking because we have to analyze our research and connect the dots where they have a connection and the more we do this, the better we get at it. Its just like digging, the more we dig, the deeper we get and as we dig deeper into the pool of knowledge, the more knowledge we find and discover. As the saying goes, "Knowledge is Power", and because of the knowledge we have gathered, and the knowledge we used to gather, together it fits like a puzzle, making our minds whole and complete with satisfaction, happiness, and the power to take on more tasks which involves using our powerful minds.

    All we know is that it's a respin on the 12nm libraries. That should drop power usage across all of the SKUs, which matters for a Mobile part. There might also be significant microcode improvements, like what happened with Zen+. We'll find out later. The other thing to look out for is more advanced power management features, which matter in the Mobile space a lot more.

    14nm vs 12nm, it’ll probably run a couple hundred mhz faster under load and consume a little less power at same frequencies as last gen.
  7. Searching did not bring up proper topics so far for me, because in my case SILENCE is a big part of my system strategy, so i can only barely crank up my existing enermax neochanger pump any further beyond 2500rpm (currently at 1500-2500) clarification: I am writing the rpm settings like selected from the remote, but the actual rpm always is around 200-300 higher which means i would have higher temperature differences in my loop when adding more load and looking at my current CPU temps with that crappy AIO (which i want to get rid of) i thik it might be usefull to mix it up a little like 1) pump -> CPU -> new frontside 120 or slim 240 (air from outside in) -> GPU -> top 240 (with inside out air) or moving the new rad to the backside 2) pump -> CPU -> GPU -> 120 (with indside out) -> top 240 (with inside out) .... this is the more classic one but i prefere the rad on the front side because of limited space at the backside or can you recommend a better pump than the neochanger? i tried a DC-LT once and it is way too loud ... and there are almost NO usefull comparisions between pumps on the web or i just simply did not find them yet. my current neochanger is practically noise-free up until i hit 3000rpm where it starts some minor noises and is becoming audible when reaching 3500rpm

    Help with unknown code

    If you mean this part: It looks like he's trying to say that you should specify the full path of the data file when passing it to the program.

    Do Macs degrade slower than an average PC

    If you don't load it down with bloatware, yes. Whereas the hardware Apple uses is still theoretically more likely to degrade faster, if not die prematurely, due to the thermal profile they deem acceptable.

    Replacing my drive

    Hi LinusTechTips Forum, I am about to replace my drive and I just bought a 240GB SSD (already replaced my RAM) with a SATA-USB cable if I need to copy the files. There is one small problem. I know that my last drive controls my whole computer, but is it fine to copy everything to the SSD and then boot with the SSD? Like, is it going to be like, undetectable drive, or something? Thank you for supporting me!
  14. 3. lol no I'm talking about the normal male 30pin USB 3.0 connector. You know the one u connect from front IO to the mobo its that big blue plug on the board. So then with that said can I simply plug said USB 3.0 30pin male cable into the female port on the PCI card like they say u can. Heres a card for example. here 2. ahhh so its just a thing where I can't use all 15 ports at there full bandwidth simultaneously alrit cool. But again do u know the amount that I can use simultaneously at the full speed? There has to be someway of knowing or calculating it I just don't know how to for my mobo. 1. thxs
  15. Hello! In July i upgraded my PC and bought an NHD-15 air cooler. Which I regret now, since it's not really pretty to look at. So i've come to the conclusion that i wanna buy an AIO but, i am not sure if there is room in my case. What would be the max. size for an AIO? Can you recommend any for my CPU, might overclock The specs: Motherboard: ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-F GAMING RAM: CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 CPU: i5-8600K Graphics card: Asus strix 1070 Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Thanks
  16. not sure why you're worried about this being marked closed when it's over a year old. Also a mod isn't going to mark it as closed just because you think you know what's wrong with his computer. Your cable might be bad but he might have a perfectly good cable. And even if he marked your answer as solving his problem, that doesn't mean the thread has to close.

    AIO Water cooler for my graphics card?

    That's an AIO. https://www.alphacool.com/shop/neue-produkte/22916/alphacool-eiswolf-120-gpx-pro-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080ti-pro-m23-black
  19. Also I kind of prefer to stick my UPS on a surge protector because I'd rather the surge protector die first than the expensive UPS unit. (But yeah, nothing's going to protect against a direct lightening strike). You might also clarify that you mean to get a UPS unit without the "front" USB ports. It can be misunderstood to get a UPS with no USB ports at all. But yeah, I only really have a UPS since I have a server. I don't think a lot of people really need them. Surge protector for sure though.
  20. You are correct. I thought the UPS would just blow a fuse but that's not the case. I don't want to spend a fortune on a commercial UPS, consumer UPSs won't do anything from a direct strike.

  23. Built a new pc about 10 days ago (specs in my signature below), had problems with it ever since. I kept getting BSOD relating to my gpu driver. Uninstalled it and could not reinstall anymore as everytime it would say "failed". The other problem is my wifi card. I have an asus PCE-AC88 and virgin 350mb download. on my old pc i would get minimum of 240mb download and my full 20mb upload on 5GHz, now i only get a max of 20 down and still get 20 up. Not only this but in my first windows install (before gpu problems) it wouldnt even want to connect to my main connection, only the guest network we had set up, now it connects to the main but not guest network. I reinstalled windows for a second time and fixed the gpu driver problem but the same wifi problem occurs!?! any suggestions because i'm about to give up and it will just be a huge waste of money thanks loads in advance
  24. Actually no a surge protector is meant just for that. Thats what a SURGE of power is let it be from a lighting strike or the power company fucking up on there end. Surge protectors sacrifice the device to save what u have connected. Thats there point, which is pretty nice for me and my lighting prone area.

    Show off your latest purchase!

    Got a free WRT160N ... Got it because it wasn't working anymore, turns out it was just the power brick (had one laying around). Flashed DD-WRT on it and I'll be installing that at the in-laws house next time I'll be there!
  26. It's not about discouraging him, it's about saving him the hassle of installing a distribution that was never meant to be installed and is not targeted at people who don't know how a boot loader works. If he's looking for an entry point into Linux there are infinitely better choices like mint, ubuntu, elementary, zorin etc. All the "h4xxor" stuff can be installed separately on any of those if he really feels the need for it.
