  1. I'm just using that mayhem stuff because I was given a free bottle. Why is it overkill/not useful? The PT stuff is for the biocide right, so wouldnt that be helpful
  2. So I need to empty out my loop and refill it with new coolant. Im getting some mayhem xt-1 clear coolant and I want to add some Petra's Tech PT Nuke Cu Concentrated Biocide in there. I have an expandable AIO, the H220 which has a radiator with brass tubes. Can I mix that PT nuke with copper in and not destroy/corrode my brass tubes? http://www.swiftech.com/MCR-H220-RADIATOR.aspx https://mayhems.co.uk/coolants/xt-1-coolant/xt-1/xt-1cc/ http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/peptcobi1.html
  3. it was the DP cable just bought an hdmi and it works.
  4. Ok thanks I'll go ahead and try a new dp cable as its the simplest thing to check
  5. I was streaming one day and when I started up a game, the screen went bad, almost as if the driver crashed. However on my phone the stream looked perfectly normal, even though I couldn't see anything on my monitor. So I did a hard reset, and launched obs and the game. The same issue happened again. Perplexed, I hit the reset again. This time the monitor displays no signal. The PC gets to post and all the fans (including the one on the GPU) are spinning. As I'm only running one GPU, I went ahead and took it out and put in the other one (the xfx one in my signature). The same thing happens, no signal to the monitor. Now, im thinking it's either both gpus, the pci connector (I tried one other pci and it did the same thing) or the display port cable. If anyone knows what's going on or has any ideas, I'd appreciate your input. Other info: windows 10 CE, before this problem, I defaulted the BIOS to factory and only have 8 GB ram installed
  6. Yeah, if you take a look at all the GAAP financials from Q2 of 2014 until now, you'll see that hold true
  7. I meant to write operating profit. Which would be correct. Although, it would only act to confuse this term with overall profit
  8. Looks like next quarter might be even better once epyc and vega sales show up on the balance sheet. Not to mention ryzen will continue to gain traction in the market with threadripper sales. http://www.cnbc.com/2017/07/25/amd-stock-soars-after-strong-guidance-earnings-beat.html
  9. Well, I guess we could turn this thread into a "what does your tag mean"....continue to discuss i guess
  10. Probably obvious by now, but I wonder if this also translates to forums members. Anonymity ftw. Also interesting: https://www.york.ac.uk/news-and-events/news/2015/research/usernames-video-gamers/ http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0747563215301655
  11. Also comes with Hitman, so added value
  12. As a dual citizen thats lived in both countries, single payer indeed seems to have its advantages on the surface. For example, according to the world health organization: The US has a life expectancy 4 years less than Canada, yet we have 7% more expenditure of our GDP. So why dont we just switch over? Single payer although effective in Canada, might have limitations in terms of scalability and scope. For example, there are more people in California than there are in Canada. What works for 35 million Canadians may not be effective for 320 million Americans. With this greater population comes greater challenges in terms of demographics and expensive morbidities that hit americans much harder than canadians per capita. Single payer isnt all that great either. Other than longer wait times for things like elective surgeries (non emergency related), there are also issues with supplying quality physicians. Canada's doctor-patient ratio is among the worst of any industrialized nation: with just 2.2 physicians per thousand people, it ranks 24th out of 28 OECD countries. Among the G8 countries, Canada ranks dead last when it comes to physician supply. This is precisely why its so hard to see a doctor in Canada. The reasons for their shortages are a bit out of scope for here, but Primary Care Doctors are in immense demand especially in rural areas of this country. That means that you need to promote doctors to go into primary care rather than specialize. This can only be done through incentives like a competitive market place which wont exist in single payer. Speaking of rewards, Doctors wont be incentivized to provide above average care if the pay scale is uniform. You will get the bare minimum of care possible, and that isnt going to go down easy here. There are also other financial difficulties. The government would have to restructure medicare and medicaid into a single regulated pool. Regulated pools of money means decisions are made into what treatments are paid for and what arnt. The almost reflexive poor public opinion produced words like "Death Panels" and were thrown around in lieu of the affordable healthcare act. It were these sentiments that brought about the fall of the much anticipated "public option" which would act as the default health net for those that did not/could not afford private insurance, yet did not qualify for medicare/medicaid. It was a beautiful solution to include those left out of the system. When the public option was marketed in democratically held congress alongside state exchanges + national exchanges + medicare/medicaid, spineless democrats basically caved for the minority republicans in fear of being seen as "too social". Other than requiring taxes being hiked across all incomes, single payer also means that doctors get paid less. Which isnt possible because it takes alot of student debt to be a doctor in the first place (speaking from experience). Now you can mandate higher levels of care for less (which is what the affordible care act does), but it means more government involvement which is something americans want less of. With reports of Medicare remaining solvent through 2030, what we unequivocally need are not band-aid money infusions from congress, but a fundamental change. For starters, a public option that runs beside national private insurance exchanges if you can afford it and want all the fixings. This will increase competition among insurers and include people into the private market who are closer to the poverty line. The public option should be paid into by everyone which means higher taxes (suck it up america you greedy bastards), and will include those that are left out of medicare/medicaid (people just above the poverty line). All of these things would also stop this:
