    Has Linus gone too far?

    You mean the guy who can't enunciate and I have to work REALLY hard to understand what he says? Yeah, I can't watch him. If he could E-NUN-CI-ATE I would sub and enjoy.

    what was your first graphics card?

    First one not in a pre-built? An RX 560.

    recommend me something to do

    I agree with read. The excuse of "no money" is stupid, because books are free to check out at the library. It sounds to me like you need to take up an exercise in self-discipline. There are many out there, look into it.

    I guess Linus was right all along.

    The whole socks with sandals thing makes me really question everything Linus has to say. I'm not sure we can trust him at all.
  6. Can we replace Luke with Jibo, please?

    Mid/late 2000's Video Games - the golden era?

    I think the only game I played during any of that time, when I wasn't over in the middle east, was O.G. Guild Wars. I think there was some AION in there, but its hard to remember for sure.

    Why is water proofing so important?

    Being a military combat veteran, and now somewhat involved in manufacturing of items that can be made "military grade" or not, this person is quite correct. I even have a friend who works for DARPA (the Department of Defense R&D section) and true military grade is generally very expensive. Military DESIGN is truly awful, clunky, and far from user-friendly, and is different than military GRADE. I speak in regard to electronics mostly, but it applies to clothing too.

    Why is water proofing so important?

    Not everyone lives/works in an environment that is a climate controlled, indoor space. Personally, I am medically retired, but pretty much my entire working life was spent in inclement weather, extreme hot/cold, or places where it would be easy for your phone/tablet/laptop to be exposed to drops in snow/water, light rain, whatever. The water resistance may not be a selling point for you, but is is high on the list for those who work and or play in extreme environments. Heck, even the printer I carried at work in my truck was lightly rained on a few times. I dropped my flashlight in my driveway at the beginning of winter in 2014 without realizing it. I lost it in the snow. I plowed snow along that driveway all winter, not to mention pulling my truck with trailer and heavy equipment up and down that driveway all winter long. Spring thaw came and I found my flashlight. Clicked the tailcap switch and the thing turned on, good as new. Cosmetically it... had character, but I still use that flashlight to this day.

    Ryzen 5 1600 won't overclock???

    Well this has officially gone beyond my ability to give anything helpful. Sorry man, but I wouldn't know what to do either in that situation. Give it some time and someone smarter than me will come along.

    Ryzen 5 1600 won't overclock???

    OK it seems to me that your BIOS changes are NOT surviving the reboot then. If they were, the software would report the changes. So you have changed things with XMP, but have you tried doing it manually (without XMP)?

    pc not booting to safe mode

    Oh sorry, I misread the beginning of your original post.

    Overclocking r5 1600

    My 5 1600 runs 3.9 at 1.38750, and your numbers are well within safe range.

    pc not booting to safe mode

    Tried tapping the delete key as it boots to get into BIOS? Delete is the most common key, yours may be different...

    Ryzen 5 1600 won't overclock???

    OK then I am just completely missing what you are asking then. The values survive boot and report correctly in monitoring software but....? It doesn't seem to make a difference? Sorry, but I am lost as to what you are asking for, and it is probably my fault that I am missing something.
