  1. Shame on me, I was mistaken by the IP address. Somehow I didn't look at it carefully and assumes it read instead of So this actually is not a private IP address that could be used as a gateway. over on the foldingforum, I got the information that this could be related to my GPU not being supported due to the lack of double precision capabilities. Link: https://foldingforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=106&t=31905 However, I find this behaviour by FAH servers very strange and I hope that this behaviour will be replaced by something more useful. Like a message or log entry stating that the GPU is unsupported instead of being put in a loop where the machine constantly tries to reach a server that's not responding.
  2. For this months challenge I installed FAH-Client 7.5.1 on multiple machines. On the ones I connected to the internet via android tethering, I get this weird WU assignment. Somehow the Work Assignment server misdirects my local client installation to the gateway IP address of my phone. A reinstall didn't help, I hope that somebody here can assist.
  3. 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!
  4. @LinusTech this is a fan for rookies. The 388W fan from EBM Papst is a fan for real pros.
  5. I can confirm the same for Folding@Home. See screenshot attached.
  6. 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.
  7. 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$)
  8. That's pretty nice. I would fold on if I would be you. Let @LinusTech speak about CPU temps:
  9. Maybe you can do it with flags in the advanced control settings. However, your CPU temps are pretty fine. (Especially since you probably don't plan to use this CPU for more than 10 years) Just keep in mind that the power draw vs F@H points ratio of CPUs is pretty bad. If power is as expensive as here (0.26$ per kWh) you could consider stopping CPU-Folding. But on the other hand, every tiny bit helps.
  10. If you are interested in donating your computing capability, try folding@home and/or boinc
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. If you want windows for free, get a ISO from windows 7! (My registration period on one device is overdue for about 2 years...)
  16. Since it runs on vista and 7, I assume it also runs on 2008 and 2012.
  17. In Switzerland, ripping DVDs for personal use is perfectly legal and you're even encouraged by law to break security mechanisms to carry out your rights. (link)
  18. Since many channels I regularly watch (Veritasium, MinuteEarth, MinuteScience, et cetera) are on vessel too, I will, without any thought, renew my Vessel membership. There would be plenty of ways to waste 20 bucks, but with a Vessel membership, I can profit from these 20 bucks.
  19. Why don't we all just calm down a bit and agree, that the whole content of the LTT, CSF and TQ channels will be free to watch on youtube for everyone? Since Linus Media Group (LMG) is a video production company and has produced (probably) many videos for companies (like @LinusTech mentioned in his post: Intel), I don't see any valid argument why this shouldn't be allowed for Vessel. There was miscommunication, which is very unfortunate. But we should all agree that this is no error LMG did, but rather an error on Vessel's side. Furthermore, I honestly don't understand why so many people are now hating on LMG, if you don't like the content, don't watch it. LMG doesn't need non-constructive criticism, and we (LMG-Forums) don't need it too. If it's not worth you 20 bucks a year, fine. I can't argue with that. My last point on this conversation should go directly to @LinusTech: THANK YOU for your honest answers to this topic so far, it's good to see that you're so committed to the community!
  20. welcome back! Every tiny bit helps
  21. Your PC should have more than enough juice for Titanfall. Unless you want to play it in 4k?
  22. Linux (especially Ubuntu and Mint) are working almost perfectly with common hardware and have a decent software library. If you, however, want to play "high-end" games like Battlefield, Call of Duty et cetera, you would need to have a Windows OS on your computer. I would rather safe some money for a windows license instead of going with linux in your case.
  23. I see your point and you are definitely right. I am not sure whether it makes sense to sacrifice single core performance for more cores in a linux environment. @MadRussian42, why did you choose linux for your build and would you use a Windows virtual machine for gaming, if necessary?
  24. Why on earth would you do that? You would need to buy a windows license anyways, so OP would be better off by installing Windows directly.
