    Dumb Question regarding ssd "m key" & "b key"

    The keys are the physical standard and from what I have seen, PCIE SSD's have the M-key and SATA drives have the B&M key. Those keys are only the physical standard, but the interface also matters. So if you have a SATA SSD (which I assume you have, because B&M key), it will fit in the SATA+PCIE slot of the motherboard. The other M.2 slot is only fit for the PCIE interface. A B&M key M.2 SSD has less pins than an M key M.2 SSD, so it's not like the SATA M.2 SSD is missing anything.
  4. Dont bother. wait For Zen 2. buying a 8700 right now is a bad idea.

    Going to make a dedicated Linux machine...which OS?

    I was recently in the same boat. I think Ubuntu is easier, especially if you plan on gaming. In a corporate environment, I've been spinning up Linux servers using CentOS. So, in order to stay on the same tree, in terms of learning, I'm running Fedora on a laptop and tower at home. It's kind of a pain, when learning, to switch back and worth between Ubuntu and something Red Hat-based. I found Nvidia drivers to be easily installed Ubuntu, as compared to Fedora, though.

    If you could just wait 1 month, then the price of the 2950x should drop, as 3000 series is revealed, and hopefully released.

    Can an pcie x8 card run on A pcie x16 slot ?

    Probably not, no. Especially since you can't provide infos on what Pentium you're talking about.
  9. So I got issued a refund for my VU 43-OA 4k Premium Android TV 43". I know the VU tv I got isn't true HDR10 as its specs showed 8-bit color and it isn't DV certified either but still is capable of delivering stunning deep blacks. I got refund because this time they didn't give me remote. They said we can only do two things now, either we credit you 500 rupees or issue you complete refund I said come on latter then . The TV is still easily recommendable by me if on a tight strict budget, though. Now, we wanna extend our budget up to 1 lakh INR max (+/- 5 thousand INR tolerance) and probably a local dealer will make our day in the end as online prices are very dodgy. I went to a reputed dealer of LG in my city and he assured me of the best price. Now, I'll be having a demo of LG's mid-range IPS LCD lineup and Nanocell lineup tomorrow to figure out if they deliver right upto my expectations. After watching this Rtings video... ...my shortlisted models: 55UK6360PTE, 55UK6500PTC, 55SK8500PTA, 55UK7500PTA but I don't know which one will be the perfect choice for me. Else I'll go for B8 blindly. Have a few questions though: On the Nanocell 55SK8500PTA they say it's Cinema HDR while on the rest its Active HDR. I wanna know the difference between the two and does it even matter? How much time can I expect B8 to last long without any burn-in or image retention? Why is it so feared? If I run pixel refresher every month or so and watch the tv with proper care, is there any chances still of getting these terrible enemies of OLED?
  10. Hi there, I'm building a new PC with ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi) Z390 motherboard and i9 -9900k and i hope the the cpu tempreture will be good on 4.2ghz ... so I'm planing on using all the ram slots with 32gb but i'm so confused and afraid that the air cooler (DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX GT ) will not make enough clearance for ram slots so please any one can help me ? there are to option of ram : - CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO - G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Links for rams and cpu cooler :- https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-MAXIMUS-XI-HERO-WI-FI/ https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/vengeance-rgb-pro-memory https://www.gskill.com/en/product/f4-4266c17q-32gtzr thanks .
  11. Planning to do a fresh Win 10 UEFI install soon on my new SSD so I've got a question: - When creating a USB bootable drive, do i format the drive using NTFS or FAT32 file system? Does NTFS work with GPT partition schemes and UEFI booting or do I have to use FAT32? Thanks for the help in advance!

    Why Radeon VII lagging behind RTX 2080

    Driver + Game Optimizations.
  15. Update: Seems that nvidia G-sync/V-sync or w/e it is was the issue for the GPU disabling it appears to have fixed the issue and the userbenchmark and superposition look like they are sitting where they should now? Does anyone know how to make G-sync/V-sync w/e it is work but limit it to 120 or 144 fps not 60fps? Not too sure about the cpu being so low but atleast it isn't showing terrible results like the GPU and it wasn't a 2nd hand on E-bay :') im assuming a cpu/Mobo OC will hopefully fix this. Thank you for yalll help so far
  16. First of all, thanks very much for your help. So linus in this video is also showing a way to people with old gen motherboard which didn't have have M.2 slots using those Silver Stone's PCIe Cards which are capable of only nvme and m.2 sata ssd, that's from where my misunderstanding started. Now conclusion - We got M.2 socket on my mother board (luckily) which supports both nvme and sata ssd (M.2 version). Now my question which one of them is faster? Nvme or Sata m.2 ssd in reading and writing speeds (and for god sake let the both storages be from samsung )

    Selection between HDD and Hybrid HDD

    If looking at a RAID5 scenario, I think the parity stripes are only used in the event one of the disks goes down. Until then it's being written to, which I don't think the cache portion of the hybrid drive will care about.

    Cpu temp question

    Nvidia panel will trump any in-game setting. Gsync is what was developed to resolve tearing. Turn off vsync and just let Gsync do its job. its why you paid the premium for Gsync.

    Dumb Question regarding ssd "m key" & "b key"

    I would just check the if the motherboard supports either SATA or PCIE M.2 SSD's, or just one or the other. Some motherboards have a slot that only supports PCIE, some only support SATA, some both in a particular slot.

    What do you think? This is the ceiling of my budget. I need multicore and nvidia. Software is: c4d, adobe aftereffects and premiere. Not much gaming.

  21. It's sad that a vocal minority has the power to basically ruin (or at least degrade) things for everyone. Bad things happen. Collective punishment is not the solution and it was banned by the Geneva convention for a reason. While this is a far cry from a war crime, there is part of me that wishes the outrage mob were not 100% isolated from the harm/deprivation they cause others - it's literally a moral hazard. It's ironic that many of those screaming for change want 'choice' while eliminating the agency and discretion of others.
  22. Hello. I recently got an Acer Aspire 5050 laptop for really cheap. It's from 2007, so I want to do some upgrades so I can use it as my main laptop for things like school, and web browsing. I don't plan on gaming, so I don't need super fast specs. Original Specs: Motherboard: Acer Prespa M (Socket M2/S1G1) CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor TK-53 RAM: 1GB (2x512) DDR2 PC2-5300 (333MHz) GPU: ATI Radeon Xpress RS482M Storage: 120GB Hitachi Travelstar (SATA 1, 1.5Gb/s) 5400RPM OS: Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 Wi-Fi: Qualcomm Atheros AR5007EG 802.11b/g OS: Yes, I will upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 or 10. And possibly dual-boot with Ubuntu. CPU: I don't know if I can upgrade the CPU in this. It might be soldered on, but it's worth a check. If it can be upgraded, would a Core 2 Duo or later boost performance? RAM: The laptop came with 1GB of DDR2 RAM, I just upgraded it to 3GB. It's a 2GB and a 1GB stick, and different brands. But the clockspeeds are the same. Storage: The laptop came with an 120GB Hitachi 5400RPM HDD (SATA I), it's the original drive, so it's going to fail sooner or later. I bought an 120GB Kingston SSD to put in the laptop. I'll still be limited to the speeds of SATA 1, but it will be faster than the hard drive. The original drive is here: (I have not received the SSD yet) Wireless: The last thing is wireless. I can not get the WiFi card to work, it keeps giving me a code 39 error. I've tried multiple versions of the driver with the same thing. Now this could this be Vista acting up, and Windows 7 or 10 will have better driver support, but I would like to see if I could upgrade the card for a slight speed boost.

    Anonimity as an Author

    This is way off topic of course, but I need some insight on this. My friend (let's call him Carl for now) is trying to become an author, but he doesn't want anybody to know his real identity. (No SSN, no address, no name, etc.) He was asking if it's possible to: 1) Manage e-mails anonymously 2) To be able to publish his books without any info. (If possible) 3) Have an untrackable/anonymous website? Can it be free? (He wants it to be interactive, similar to this site https://alacrangroup.com/) 4) Transferring funds or income anonymously? (Is this even possible?) Any other resources would be helpful as well. Thanks

    Selection between HDD and Hybrid HDD

    would it make sense to use multiple for parity pooling? or am i better off using uncached disks? (RAID 5 or windows storage spaces)
