  1. Really? Why did we only see it show up on consumer chips post 2000 or so then?
  2. Most stress tests are more intense than games to be honest, even the good ones that aren't insane like prime 95 and furmark.
  3. Do you know what voltage it's spiking to? It could be something dangerous, which would explain the rapid heating.
  4. oh. Yeah I would be very tempted to get an SSD cache. That's a sizable chunk (50%+) of a typical HDD's max sequential write speed, and as mentioned, you don't want to push too close to that for a variety of reasons.
  5. 100 Mbits/second? A HDD will handle that just fine. Or did you mean MBytes?
  6. moved to troubleshooting
  7. it was supposed to be 10 but they cheaped out on the memory controller sentencing
  8. If you don't usually work out or walk anywhere, you're still burning about the same amount of calories you normally would though. Laying in bed isn't really any different than sitting in a chair, and your body still goes through 1000 - 1500 just doing basic functions
  9. oh, replies to the thread It took me a while to find what you were pointing out ...in other news, wow, we're almost 10 20 pages ahead of you guys
  10. And doing that once in a while isn't the end of the world, especially if is stops you from going insane Just so long as you have a good routine the rest of the time that more than makes up for it.
  11. GRID (the original, not autosport), DiRT Showdown, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. All were free here or there (Steam, Humble Bundle, etc.) at some point, and I would highly recommend for that price, or even a few bucks next time there's a "normal" sale.
  12. *lose Also, I'll teach you one of the most important formulas in chemical engineering since I promise it will come in handy elsewhere in life. Input - Output + Generation - Consumption = Accumulation Now you don't output or generate food/calories, so this simplifies to Input - Consumption = Accumulation. Now, ask any dietitian and they'll tell you that different foods are treated differently by the body, and everyone's body is a little different, and, most fundamentally and obviously, there are healthy foods and less healthy foods, but there's one you can always count on, and that's physics. Your body can't escape it. If you consume (burn) more calories in a day than you take in, you will lose weight. There is no way around that. Try to eat healthy, or at least healthier, or, at the very least, don't over eat, and throw in a 1000 calorie workout at least 5 days / week. You will see very good results
  13. bit of a gray area, being a low power convertible, but between laptops and tablets, I think this falls into the former -moved-
  14. oh sorry, I guess I wasn't totally clear... I think he has notifications turned on, but I'm not certain
  15. It's ok, the basically haven't improved since Skylake (or even earlier for that matter but meh). Just change the spreadsheet for price and clockspeed and you should be good.
