  1. True, but consider how long that would take for literally hundreds of claimed videos. Also, who's to say that the song he replaces it with might not get claimed in another few years?
  2. YouTube creator Matt Lowne is a relatively popular Youtuber in the Kerbal Space Program community. Very recently, pretty much all of his channel's video's have received copyright claims by SonyATV, referring to a song he uses in many of his channel's intros. According to Matt Lowne, this song called "Dreams" was originally listed in the YouTube Audio Library and could be used under creative commons license, but it seems that the rights for this song may have recently been acquired by SonyATV. Following this, it seems that SonyATV has issued corresponding copyright claims for videos on his channel dating back years. https://twitter.com/Matt_Lowne/status/1195373518415945728 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcjVJ3Cznec I have no knowledge of something similar happening previously, but this could set a concerning precedent? How many other creators may have this song on their videos? What happens when other songs receive the same treatment?
  3. Probably because they fear getting sued from just about every corner: companies that operate messaging services on Android, pretty much every mobile carrier in the world would be after their arses, the EU would probably stick their noses in there for anti-competitieve practices, probably Apple seuing them as well for good measure (pretty sure they'll find something to whine about again),... Either way, they would probably get more than a couple lawsuits and million dollar fines stuck up their multi-colored nostrils.
  4. Didn't Linus talk about this in his home pc upgrade? Where he tried to upgrade his system but went back to his old motherboard because he runs a TB2 optical cable from a rack to his desk and couldn't find TB3 ones or something?
  5. Olympus with their xD memory cards, same goes for Fujifilm and their SmartMedia cards and others. Proprietary hard drives for the xbox 360, do those count? WMV/WMA/AAC/... file formats. Literally dozens of compressed archive formats.
  6. Of course? If you have the budget to splurge, a better graphics card will get you better performance, that's a given. However it all depends on the games you play and your budget. Do you want to play beautiful RPG's at 4K with ultra settings at 30fps? You're better off investing in a high-end graphics card and not to splurge on the CPU. Or do you want to play FPS titles in 1080p with high framerates? Invest in a high-end CPU and settle for a mid-range GPU. Let's say you have $800 to spend on a CPU and GPU (let's ignore the rest of the system for the sake of simplification): at this budget you could either get a Ryzen 5 2600 with an RTX 2080 or you could get a Core i7 9700K with an RTX 2070. Both combinations are perfectly reasonable choices, they just serve another purpose.
  7. Let's agree to disagree and leave it there
  8. I'm not? If you check most sources that have benchmarked the ryzen 3000 chips against 9700k / 9900k overclocked, then literally 90% of games will hit 5-10% higher framerates on Intel. With that AIO he should be able to hit a solid 5GHz if not 5.1GHz on that CPU easily. Sure, GPU wise I can't really argue... then again even at 1440p, a 2070 will run most competitive FPS titles at 144Hz no sweat, unless you absolutely need your ultra graphics. Even my old 1070 maintains a solid 165Hz in Overwatch, Fortnite, Apex, etc... at medium to high settings.
  9. Depends on what he plans to run. This setup is perfect for high framerate FPS gaming. Considering he's got a 1440p 144Hz freesync/g-syng compatible monitor on there, I guess that's where he's going. And in this situation, a setup with the 9700K at 5.1GHz can still run circles around a 3900X build.
  10. Sounds like a GPU or motherboard hardware issue. I did encounter a similar issue once that got resolved by resetting CMOS on the motherboard one time, but your mileage may vary. Perhaps try the card in a different PCI slot? If at all possible, swap out hardware for testing purposes, but unless you have an old GPU still around that may not be an option.
  11. Did it show anything during POST or during start-up or did it only fail to show anything in windows? If it didn't show anything at all during POST or start-up, then that would point towards a hardware issue most likely. if it only fails in windows, it's likely a driver issue.
  12. It's not XTU that I'm using to confirm that, i'm just using it to set the frequencies. I'm using HWMonitor and task manager to check actual frequencies and cpu load. Thermals never go above 45c in the single core test. FYI in the multi core test, all cores clock to 5.1GHz solid with no dips and CPU load sits at 100% on all cores.
  13. So, I've been running an Intel i7 9700K for a good while now, and I've had it running at a solid 5.1GHz for a few months now with no issues. So yeah, I'm not complaining in that regard. However I still wanted to see how much extra I could get out of it on a single core, 2 cores, etc... so I punched some numbers into Intel XTU, ran Cinebench R15 in single core and... it's all over the place. All the cores are being loaded, and none of them are ever being loaded more than 70% (not exactly a single core result then is it?). It's also barely ever boosting over the all core 5.1GHz, even with 4 cores crancked up to 5.3GHz in Intel XTU, and often sits around 4.7GHz as reported by HWMonitor. Am I doing something wrong, or should I switch to another benchmarking tool?
  14. Ok, so the issue is likely in windows then. Type msconfig in windows start menu, then press enter to bring up system configuration. Go to the "Boot" tab and click the "Advanced Options" button. Make sure everything is unchecked in the window that pops up. Then click OK/Apply where necessary and reboot.
