  1. Sorry about reviving the issue. I have new information. Been running a default Ryzen power plan for a few days now. The powebug reappeared while using AMD Ryzen High Performance. This is me starting a blender render. 12 threads out of 32 are affected. So, only 4 cores out of 16 actual cores are functioning normally? 3/4 of one chiplet is having an issue, that doesn't really make sense to me. The frequency I am stuck at is higher, but some cores fail to reach base clock. System did not recover despite the blender generated load. The issue is the same, but behaving differently compared to 1usmus powerplan. In this case, the performance loss is less severe compared to the same bug on 1usmus powerplan. When the system is working normally, the default power plans don't really differ from the 1usmus power plans, except in high frame-rate gaming. Warframe, the only game I really play, stutters constantly with default powerplans. 1usmus stutters as well, but it only ever seems to last for 3 or 4 seconds. In actual workloads I see no performance difference, blender renders are just as fast with both plans. The bug reappeared similarly as last time, upon recovering from hibernation.
  2. I had one person say they had the same issue once on a 3600X. They said they were using the blanced poweplan, maybe the 1usmus powerplan I have could be a source of issues. Hopefully one of the default power-plans is without issue.
  3. This is default behavior. CPU usage is usually above 1 or 2 % if I am not idle. With the bug it will not go over that even with load. I will however test the default power-plan to see if it has an effect. When the bug is in effect games were stuttery, FPS was also lower. BIOS is the latest version, drivers are update. Windows is on version 1909, with latest updates, any newer and I need to be an insider.
  4. I tried playing Witcher 3 the first time I had this bug, it was "playable". Also that didn't fix the down-clocking. I didn't try a synthetic load, I might try that next time. With that in mind, the lowest speed I "naturally" see is 3.5Ghz on desktop, windows never reports lower than 4Ghz since it sees just the current highest speed.
  5. Greetings from a long time lurker. I am experiencing a strange bug with my 3950x for the second time. I just resumed from hibernation, and my CPU seems to stay clocked between 500 and 800Mhz. Windows is reporting utilization at 1 or 2 %, despite there being some stutters and slowness in system operation at this speed. Additionally HWmonitor is reporting half the cores at 567mhz, while the rest seem fine at 3.5Ghz. Temps are near 36C, so there is no overheating causing this. Only software that was hibernated was Firefox. A restart can fix this, at-least it did last time, but I want to fix this so I can use hibernation. Restarting would defeat the point of hibernation. Has anyone seen this yet? The 2 times I have seen this issue have been when I resume from Hibernation, but not every time. Specs and software: Mobo: Gigabyte Aorus Master, BIOS F11 CPU: 3950x (stock) RAM: 16GB x 2 3600Mhz CL16 GSkill PSU: 750W EVGA Supernova G2 Cooling: Corsair H110i GTX OS: Windows 10 pro, 1909, 1usmus Ryzen powerplan. I can give additional details if I missed something.
  6. Unfortunately I don't have time to wait for a cable to ship, if I am unable to do this with a standard USB-C to USB-C cable, I will simply wait to aquire an internet cable. I also wouldn't want to buy such an expensive cable in the first place. A USB-C to USB-C cable is all I have available at the moment.
  7. Title explains prettymuch all of this, apologies as this could be a quite stupid question. I want to use my laptop to get internet to my PC, the ONLY connector I have at hand is USB-C. Both machines are using Windows 10 (Home ver, hopefully MS wont fuck me here). I am unfamiliar with setting up this kind of system, I am only mostly sure no damage can occur with this type of connection, either no power is exchanged, or my laptop charges throug the PC. I would like to know however, how to setup the laptops internet connection to be shared. And... if it can... I am assumin that neither device needs specific HW for this to work, with the physical connection being possible, I am assuming this kind of thing to be a standard feature of USB-C. This would be a major upgrade over sharing my phones 4G or Wifi through micro-USB, I believe that my current phone doesn't have the capability, nor the connector, to effectively share the 1GB connection it is capable of accessing in the premises.
  8. How much of the bad sales comes from people just hopping on a bandwagon to crap on Ubis games? Ghost recon Wild-lands, didn't make headlines after release, propably because people weren't able fit it into the "ubi is satan" meme. R6S had a really rough start, however, support for the game has continued, and it has proven fruitful. Anno 2205 launched November 2015, not quite 2 years ago. I own Anno 2070, I liked that game, the new game added some things I wanted to see in the previous one for a long time. While that game has fans, it might not have as many as every FPS game. There is also the Farcry series, FC3 and Blood dragon were great games. The FC's that followed were incremental upgrades, just because they didn't take leaps from the perspective of a FC3 and Blood dragon player, doesn't mean they took six steps back from the perspective of general consumers. Watchdogs 2, did you hear much after release? I didn't. And yet, when I go to it's page on steam, I see overall reviews being "Very Positive". Ubi hasn't been able to milk you dry because of people jumping at every chance to take a shovel at them. There are people who will argue for Ubi making good games still, and that's the point, they make good games. Why don't you want to even SHOW support for a studio doing games well. Are you in favor of further encouraging games to be considered as tools to make money, or as an art and form of entertainment. Which is more important to you, as a consumer, the products that you can buy, or corporations making a killing of them. EDIT: Also forgot to reply to other parts. "what is Yves Guillemot doing since Viendi started gaining % of UBi? he started crying and he pledged he won't allow a takeover" I am sure he is doing his job. Making statements is a part of that, what is he supposed to say? "Please stop buying our stuff so we can get bough out and get mostly fired" It seems some people have taken a voluntary job to make a proper effort to ruin their reputation regardless of what they release. Social media is a massive influence in a games success, it isn't exactly a thing every studio can manipulate to their whim. While that is a good thing, it allows for damage to be dealt to a corporate entity at the whim or random people. Pretty sure some of those random people in this case don't care if they kill a few good games, as long as they can play an internet vigilante against a company. What am I to make of the metacritic data? I can't interpret anything else from it other than the stuff we know, and possibly what I have said.
  9. So, because you don't like Ubisofts games, you think they should just be used to make some corporation even more powerful. This buyout could cause an anti-trust case, but it's all right because ubis games are bad. Even then, you can't say their games are objectively bad. I for one like Anno 2070 and R6 Siege. I would like to get For honor, but I am simply put off by it being P2P and I don't really have money to drop on everything. I also wanted to get the new Anno game, but again, I can't drop money on everything.
  10. Great, so instead of trying to handle the situation properly the guy just takes the users money away. Everyone involved with G2A at any part of making an exchange is likely to get fucked. Just another reason for me to never buy from G2A, and my friends still wonder why I am against it.
  11. A friend of mine who uses the PS says it's good. He had it 24/7 use for 11 months, only times he had the PC off was when the power went out. It outlasted a hyper 212 evo aswell. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=214
  12. Safe? Sure, they would likely lose users very rapidly if they weren't. They are just trying to get some ad revenue from the looks of it. Legal? Nopedy nope, you aren't paying for the movies, and I doubt that the people who made the program were able to convince the big studios that ad revenue would make them money. That probably because they never consulted any studios. It's illegal, plain and simple.
  13. I would have though that kind of thing wouldn't fly with MS, but I guess they needed to compromise on moderating their minuscule app-store for some reason. The app itself seems to "profit" from ads, hopefully not malicious ones.
  14. Something about the store page being in bad Finnish (Estonian), makes me happy.
  15. I like how terrorist exploits should now be considered in civilian vehicles as well. Should they have made the hull V shaped to better handle VBIED's then? I can't wait to see volvo start advertising a civilian car that is "more explosive resistant". "Can handle IED's up to ~10kg, protect yourself now!"
  16. *sigh* Trying to get back on topic about the banning of porn again. How is porn a health problem? A healthy person has a thing called sexual drive, you can neglect it entirely but that isn't healthy, it can cause stress at the least which isn't healthy. Porn is just entertainment that caters to that drive, it reduces stress in people. Lets take this up a notch shall we? Lets ban extreme music such as metal, as the sound encourages violence in young people, thus creating a health hazard. IMO so long as education/parenting is offered no form of entertainment media will pose a "threat". Now days it's as if it is to be expected that ALL parents and schools will fail in teaching future generations any morals what so ever, and that every person from 0 to 18 years old is in danger of being affected by entertainment.
  17. I think they aren't quite firing hell-fires at suspects, not yet at least...
  18. GoG and Green Man Gaming are my go to places. Just got Doom and Wolfenstein The New Order for ~36€. I wouldn't consider that a bad deal.
  19. Depends on what you are playing, if your games use no more than 4 corees you can even disable HT. This will get you better temps, and allow you to OC higher than a 6600K should be able to go, a 6700K is obviously better binned as opposed to a 6600k. The question of weather it is worth is up to you, personally I went with the 6700K, I wanted a proper upgrade to my 3570K.
  20. If you take a look at their history you'll see they aren't very concerned with pleasing PC gamers. I think they will not put a single game on steam, and if they do it will take ages for it to happen and the games will not have sales.
  21. It's better than nothing. But the price will always be allot higher than what PC gamers are used to paying, every game will likely be 60€ or $. Not to mention that they didn't say anything about the PC version being just a glorified demo of the game. See Halo 5 Guardians edition, no campaing, no multiplayer matchmaking. Just forge and custom games. I am not looking forward to seeing more great games get even more cut down on PC that usual. It's very likely that I will not be buying a single damn game they offer, even Halo Wars 2 is looking more and more boring every day.
  22. Someone mentioned the channel being ~350GB and ~700 videos. Not sure what quality though. If you are going to do it, please make sure that all the videos have audio, from 420p onward the tracks are separate.
  23. No multiplayer in the remaster? Awww, I was looking forward to kidnapping capturing some little sisters.
  24. I would personally suggest Creative Fatal1ty(s), I have had 2 of those and never had a single issue unless I was throwing them around. That's why I had to get another pair. They are quite cheap, the mic is great, and IMO they were comfortable once I had them on for a while. For the money they are a great choice IMO. They are ~30€ IIRC I now have Logitech G633's, and to be honest, the sound quality might be tad worse on these. And the mic is certainly worse, I can't get it into a good position, it apparently makes me sound more "robotic", and I can't seem to get it adjusted so it doesn't pickup every single key-press.
  25. With that specific example the criminal is incredibly easy to track down, it gives investigators a place, time, possibly camera footage, witnesses and so on. EDIT: Also, how does banks taking responsibility equal punishing criminals? Another marketplace could, and would likely pop up. But then again it would take allot of time for it to become known to it's target audience. Removing the stolen keys, or just removing a very well known marketplace has a large impact, and the effect lasts quite long. It is a similar cat and mouse game, but I think with this approach it would be much more effective at killing the mice.
