      @CUDAcores89 is it just dell? i'm pretty sure its on HP machines as well

    3. CUDAcores89


      Ok i forgot about HP

    4. manikyath


      in short, its a connector that gets two VGA ports on a single low profile bracket, with room for S-Video

  2. I can't leave my laptop in sleep mode for one day without it running completely out of battery because 24wh and DDR4 takes up so much fucking power in idle. 

    1. manikyath


      thats not only DDR4, thats an issue with quite a few laptops.

  3. Intel Hd 620 for running 2-3 1440 monitors.

    I have 8th gen i5 8350u w/ Intel uhd 620 it can run 2 2560x1440 displays at 60hz (one using HDMI 1.4b and another using USB C, I'm guessing it might be able to do another one though if you have two USB C) just get one 4k display and maybe a secondary 1080/1440, just be warned that all UHD 620 cannot do 4k 60hz out of HDMI, only USB C or displayport, else it does 4k 30hz

      just use your own body fluids ffs 

    3. DocSwag


      I heard IC Diamond isn't good to use directly on die b/c it can scratch. 

    4. GeneXiS_X


      @DocSwag correct, but it won't do any significant damage

  4. go for a ryzen instead of intel, leverage the extra cores on ryzen ryzen 5 1600 or 1700 if they are on sale (in Canada the 1700 is only $40 more than the 2600 and $100 cheaper than 2700) or the 2600 or 2700 if they make sense
  5. caddy ssd or directly

    on some laptops it might be using sata 2 or sata 1 instead of sata 3, and it might not be able to boot from caddy, but otherwise, no. I don't think you will lose warranty if you open up the laptop, I'm pretty sure that's illegal in the US
  6. LG 34UC79G-B Backlight bleed

    return too much bleeding
  7. caddy ssd or directly

    caddy for hdd, sata for ssd make sure there are caddys for your laptop and that your laptop can read a hard drive in its dvd bay
  8. ThinkPad X1 Extreme or ThinkPad p52s

    I'm calling it a thick ultrabook. modern ultrabooks barely house a USB port, this one houses a ethenet. It's not thick by my standards but it's competing in the ultrabook market, it's thick for that market.
  9. less voltage is always better, so yes, as low as you can while maintaining stability at 4.8ghz
  10. ThinkPad X1 Extreme or ThinkPad p52s

    I've lost faith in most modern laptops, they all have shit cooling... My t480 gets 85-95c under CPU only at 2.8GHz, and it's a thick ultrabook... don't talk about GPU + CPU loads; 1GHz CPU throttling.
  11. I hit the 'unlimited tab' limit in safari.

      @themctipers so you have a smiley face in place of the numbers too xD

      been there since day one.

      one day, the tab hoarders will rule the world!

  12. My WD RE3 is Too Hot

    my WD gold gets ~45-50c under idle. It's rated up to 60 so I don't worry, 5 year warranty also. your drive is rated up to 65c, I wouldn't worry too much..
  13. ThinkPad X1 Extreme or ThinkPad p52s

    p1 extreme looks to be throttling as hard as a MBP from just looking at the dimensions and a P52s is a ULV U series so not really that good (I get ~550-650 CB with my i5 8350u, T480, ~2.8GHz all core, might be a bit more with the P52s because it's larger) none, too expensive, low specs, just get a gaming laptop for best price/perf and when it dies in a couple of years time buy another with the money you saved.
  14. is it possible to unlock a bitlocker OS drive if you have the password to it (not TPM dependant) but you don't have the recovery key?
    I remember it requiring the recovery key regardless if you plugged it into a PC 


    1. Ryan_Vickers


      As far as I know you only need the password.  I have a bitlocker drive that I plug into 3 different PCs and that's all that's needed.  And, as far as I know, the recovery key is just the hashed password or something like that - basically the same code, that's why it can also unlock it - but stored in a way where you don't need to store the password itself.
