  2. Intel isn't worth buying. Not to mention the second computer inside all Intel chips that is an active backdoor that can gain access to your system no matter what.

    First build help

    No. There is a sweet spot. Most popular manufacturers produce about the same CAS latency ratings anywhere between 2133 and 3200. Above 3200, things start to gain latency a bit. So generally 3000-3200mhz at standard CAS latencies are the recommendations.

    Favorite Linux Distro and Why?

    You could have just changed the keyboard layout under the language settings.

    Selection between HDD and Hybrid HDD

    For that type of usage, I don't think you will see much of a difference between hybrid and standard. However, unless there is a large price difference between the standard and hybrid of the given size you need, it couldn't hurt to go hybrid. I have a 2 TB 2.5" hybrid Seagate drive as my data drive. My wife stores a lot of digital photos while she edits them before saving to a cloud drive and our NAS. It seems fast enough, but I mainly bought it because it was only a few dollars more than the standard 2 TB at MicroCenter.

    What should my next upgrade be?

    Heres Apex's numbers from last night: Apex Legends on the same testing rig, monitor, all settings maxed out: 3200mhz: Starting screen 108 FPS (locked) Ave FPS dropping in 50 FPS Min FPS dropping in 46 FPS 2133mhz Starting screen 97 FPS (locked) AVE FPS dropping in 44 FPS Min FPS dropping in 32 FPS What I noticed - AVE FPS overall during gameplay was similar overall but the dips were far lower with 2133mhz. When dropping in, was the most obvious FPS loss. Quite the delta there!

  8. I am genuinely interested on everybody's stance on systemd here. Do please keep the discussion civil and leave the pitch forks at home. I was wondering whether or not to post such a question here, but I just felt like I needed to understand the community at large with regards to their stance on systemd after watching this video (it's 40-50min long): This was, from what I gather, a conference or something to that effect. One of the talks was on systemd. I think it is really insightful. Now, as I am asking you of your stance, I shall share mine. I prefer systemd over other initialization systems.

    How should i package my GPU?

    Don't you have anti static bag lying around that came with your GPU? you might also need the GPU box which might help it remain safe during transport.

    PSUs and Overclocking

    yeah okay, but what if I had a 500W power supply, is there some sort of method to know if my power supply can handle these overclocks?

    are M.2 SATA and NVMe

    First, what Intel SSD are you talking? Was it an Optane drive helping out a HDD? Second, the 860 EVO is a SATA drive not an NVMe. Did you mean 960? SATA SSDs open programs almost instantly (under a half second) and provide boot times sometimes in the single digits of seconds. NVMe has been shown to do similar. There are too many files to be accessed and processed for the pure speed of an NVMe drive to make it's raw power felt.

    FREE Games of the Day #2 April 25th, 2019

    Game #1 Welcome to Princeland is FREE right now over at IndieGala. Steam link... Welcome to Princeland. Developed by Eren Aydin, the game is a place which is used by powerful countries to do drug trials and technology experiments. A place that has 800% tax rate, where you can barely stay alive. You become a part of the rebellion against the prince who exploit his people with taxes. You get to gather the best weapons, vehicles and followers to crush his army. You upgrade your skills and challenge him at different difficulty modes. After his funeral, we'll all be able to get weapons, vehicles and followers tax-free. But the challenge is that he is hiding in one of the six bunkers in the land. Sometimes It can be frustrating to not be able to find him so you may want to team up with friends to find him quick. It has offline single player, which does not require an internet connection and leaderboards will not work. It has singleplayer, where all of the game features will work, but you will be alone. It also has multiplayer, which can be played coop with up to 16 players and you can enable friendly fire to PvP. It also features challenging difficulties that can make you sweat. You can choose from 13 difficulty options that will be unlocked with your progression. It can be crazy hard to survive at the last difficulty, but the rewards will be fair. It has character progression like an ARPG. You frequently level up and increase your skills to survive at the last difficulty. It's good farming fun. There's a lot of contents to unlock with progression and there's hunting missions to get extra rewards. Drive the delivery trucks to unlock the hatches and earn a good amount of money. But beware, the roads are full of dangers. There's fast action, explosions, flying rag dolls and crowded battles. And last but not least, there's no in app purchases. The game was recently updated on April 22nd, 2019. Game #2 Meaty McSkinBones is a FREE Early Access game that was released to Steam YESTERDAY, April 24th, 2019. Developed by Triplot Studio, it's a single-player puzzle/platformer where the character is split into three separate bodies. They each have unique abilities or can work together to solve puzzles and traverse the environment. It's quirky, hilarious, and a ton of fun! There's over 14 unique and challenging levels and character-to-character interaction mechanics where the characters work together. There's a charming, engrossing story with a hilariously gross, quirky and cheesy aesthetic. Here is a random gameplay video I found that shows one of the bugs you may encounter with this early access game... Meaty McSkinBones Gameplay. Scroll to the 3:00 mark for the bug. Bonus Game #3 Geometry May I swear its a nice free game is a FREE game that was released to Steam on April 17th, 2019. Developed by Pixelgreeds, it's a side-scrolling runner with combat and acrobatic elements(slide, dash, jump, fly, and so on). It is a story prequel to Maytroid I swear its a nice game too. It does feature random mature content galleries which just seem funny to me. Reminder Game Lonely will be(as mentioned in this FREE game series yesterday) releasing on Steam TODAY, April 25th, 2019 in approximately 5 hours from now. Still curious to see its price tag. I'm sticking with my original thought of $0.99 - $2.99.

    Aside from the fact that creating an html form & 12~ lines of PHP isn’t hard and a great intro to developing for web.

    What should my next upgrade be?

    @trevb0t thank you for the tag. RAM example from last nights tests: Both kits are 2x8 dual channel, one at 2133mhz and one at 3200mhz. Tests done on my Ryzen Rig (1) in my sig driving a nice Acer 144hz 2k monitor - I am now a firm, solid, believer in the Infinity Fabric. Battlefield 5 Ultra settings/all maxed out 2133mhz - unplayable, had to drop settings to High presets to achieve smooth 60+ FPS gameplay @ 2k. Up to full 1 second stutters when I would pull my trigger at Ultra settings...it was crazy bad. 3200mhz - 60 fps average on Ultra/all maxed out with the lowest FPS hit at 32 fps when the map would "drop you in" with highs in the 80 FPS Apex Legends Ultra settings/all maxed out I don't have my numbers in front of me but I want to say it was over a 10% difference (I remember BF5s tests last night astutely. Cant even measure the FPS difference...my R7 1700 just couldn't build the frame time without faster memory. YES. I used to be a naysayer. I can no longer say there isn't a stark difference. At minimum if I didn't achieve higher FPS (as in, the FPS was the same average) - I always achieved tighter frames - the lows were not so low and the highs were way more frequent. It really KEPT the average FPS tight.
  16. Do you have the 3 gig 1060 if you do don't worry about anything just toss that in the bin and get yourself a 2060 and you won't have any issues with haswell. I have been asking even for a non K sku if coffee lake is a worthwhile upgrade and a vast majority of people tell me not to bother until Zen 2 is available and tested to compare to what I already have.
  17. Does it happen when editing from the page with just the status on its own (clicking the posted time)? When it happens, is anything logged to the dev console? F12, console tab, refresh the page, try and reproduce it, post a screenshot here.

    Selection between HDD and Hybrid HDD

    THANK YOU for the informaion. So considering that if I played the same game many a times so according to you should I go for the HDD hybrid or does this Have any effect on the game performance(I mainly use my PC for gaming and content consumption.)
  19. i have completely ruined the wiring of my brain by constant stupid obsessions, i can't think straight or clearly for shit anymore :/

    Problem with old AM2+ Build

    Possible dead memory controller on the new CPU. Is it used?

    what would you chose between these two?

    No such thing as over kill. The 650 unit would get my choice.
  22. Just bought the Prospek Elite from Spektrum for $55. They're awesome and remind me of the BluBlockers I had when I was younger. I had the aviators which you can get two pairs for under $50 (source: https://www.blublocker.com/products/2-black-original-aviator-blublockers). I don't remember the quality of the lenses though. These Prospek Elite have a nice oleophobic lens that's super easy to keep smudge free. The only bad thing is there's no spring in the frame or whatever and I don't mind that there's no adjustable nose piece but some people might. Really feel like my eyes are more comfortable sitting on a computer all day and am a big fan of the glasses. Again, probably could have gotten the same performance from the BluBlockers though.
  23. Weight isn't too much of a problem, perhaps around 2-3kg (tbh I don't have a good feeling about what is too heavy). My dream laptop would have a battery life of around 7 hours under light browsing maybe.
  24. For the record, I'm not using a different billing/shipping address(both are the same address for me) to get around paying a sales tax. I use a separate billing address for pretty much everything both to have packages delivered to a secure location until I can pick them up to avoid thefts from porch pirates and to protect my privacy when traveling. I do not want my home address being disclosed to a hotel/motel clerk or out of State sales clerk since it would inform them of an address that is mostly vacant for a certain period of time, information that would be valuable to thieves. The same is true for my phone number most of the time. I rarely give out my true phone numbers. The businesses that think they just have to have my home phone number when they do not, such as online vendors and for store rewards or discount cards, get an old phone number I still "own" but no longer use (long story but having it saves me money on my ISP bill) with the exchange replaced with 555 (the exchange is the three numbers between the area code and the last four numbers). Anyone stupid enough to try to dial that number gets redirected to directory assistance. This has dramatically reduced the number of scam and spam calls I used to get.
