    Intel's X-Series Lineup - What you NEED to Know

    I respect your choice on how to do sponsored videos and in which way you disclose this fact. Even though I think it's more than clear that this is essentially an advert, I really do miss any mention of competitors, especially since the AMD platform really has to be considered at this time. For future sponsored content, I would appreciate a more differentiated approach on presenting solutions/products from companies. IMHO, it would be fair to mention some "flaws" or "downsides" of the presented products. However, I think this video has been greatly done and I appreciate the effort you put into it. Thanks for always trying your best!

    11,500 RPM Fan!!

    @LinusTech this is a fan for rookies. The 388W fan from EBM Papst is a fan for real pros.
  3. I can confirm the same for Folding@Home. See screenshot attached.
  4. Since the CPU is an engineering sample, I think there are thermal and power limitations at this time which doesn't allow the new CPU to clock higher. But this will change.

    cheap gpu

    If you just need monitor outputs, get the cheapest you can find from your preferred store. If you want an efficient card which also folds, get something like the GTX 750. (about 100$)
  6. That's pretty nice. I would fold on if I would be you. Let @LinusTech speak about CPU temps:
  7. Maybe you can do it with flags in the advanced control settings. However, your CPU temps are pretty fine. (Especially since you probably don't plan to use this CPU for more than 10 years) Just keep in mind that the power draw vs F@H points ratio of CPUs is pretty bad. If power is as expensive as here (0.26$ per kWh) you could consider stopping CPU-Folding. But on the other hand, every tiny bit helps.

    Mining with rx480 (beginner)

    If you are interested in donating your computing capability, try folding@home and/or boinc

    32core folding limit

    Are you using Windows 7? (There's a core limit in each version, 32bits has 16 and 64bits has 32 I believe) I never had any problems running some servers with 40+ cores while running windows server 2012r2.
  10. Do not waste your time and money (and battery life too) for stuff that's no longer worth it. Cryptomining is practically dead for years (if you don't buy specialised equipment) Go with Folding@Home or BOINC instead, if you want to use your computing power for a benefit.

    GPU Not Detected on FAH

    There is either a problem with your internet service (DNS, Gateway) or with the F@H servers, since your client is unable to connect to those.
  12. 1. but not by much 2. if you already have a DVD, you can use it. Otherwise, various online-magazines and downloadpages host ISOs. Windows 7 does run without a proper key, after 180days, your background gets removed (to black) and there's a message every once in a while. Windows 8/8.1 will shutdown after about an hour, when the period of 180days is over.
  13. If you want windows for free, get a ISO from windows 7! (My registration period on one device is overdue for about 2 years...)
  14. Since it runs on vista and 7, I assume it also runs on 2008 and 2012.
