    should I buy more RAM?

    @WereCatf, ok I'll definitely give it a try, then

    should I buy more RAM?

    @WikiForce this is not for normal desktop operation. The sole purpose of RAM is to saturate my 12 CPU threads. I have some tasks running over night. 32GB RAM is recommended for my task anyway, RAM prices were sky high when I bought it so it was pretty obvious I'd buy more soon.

    I think lxc-container are bound to a single-core. For the sake of stability I'll do both buy +16GB and restrict total RAM usage.

    should I buy more RAM?

    searching up directory trees, I do a lot of caching. Also, all my tool chain relies heavily on caching for pre-processing and parallel compilation. These are 6-12 tasks executed in parallel with each at least 1GB RAM. I don't do this non-stop, though, and these tasks take too long anyway so it doesn't make sense to increase performance. I need uninterrupted typing in my editor this is what is driving me nuts. Well, I was using my samsung m2 evo for swap originally, but I read that swap can quickly wear out SSDs. Recently I moved swap to a 7200 rpm HDD. I didn't notice any difference with this change.
  5. I am using Linux Ubuntu with 16GB DDR4 RAM and 17GB swap memory. Over the day my RAM usage is constantly around 80% RAM. For certain tasks more RAM is needed and swap is used. I don't bother the performance decrease in general but my mouse and editors are becoming unresponsive during swap and this is very annoying. Total RAM usage peaks at ~20 GB. Should I try to optimize my system settings or buy more RAM?

    wireless routers from TP-Link

    wft version 5 is the wrong user guide (it's for the AC750) so you have to choose V3 ! OMG

    ... and Spain still has version 3.0, Germany is on version 5!

    wireless routers from TP-Link

    yes, that's the one! I couldn't find it because I was looking in european market for my home country and the US market. So it's probably imported from Spain, Italy or Germany... thanks!

    wireless routers from TP-Link

    hi, I found this cheap wifi router from TP-Link: TP-Link Archer C2 AC900. This product line is very confusing. I am struggling to find the user manual. Some vendors have the Archer C2 AC750, others Archer C20 AC750 or Archer C2 AC900, sometimes with 2 antennas sometimes with 3. They all have the same housing and features with subtle differences. The manufacturer doesn't even have the C2 AC750 on their website: https://www.tp-link.com/us/search/?q=ac750&t=product&s= They don't have the C2 AC900 either... there's a C900 AC900, however. https://www.tp-link.com/us/search/?q=Archer+C900&t=product&s=MODEL I think this is all plain wrong, images & product names on vendor sites. What a mess! Anyone knows where to find the user manual for the TP-Link Archer C2 AC900???

    Masterbox vs Masterbox black

    I already have my parts. But the case has been "borrowed", provisionally. I don't know if a fan will fit on top of the dark Rock, that seems a bit tight.

    Masterbox vs Masterbox black

    oh, that means it already has PSU, built in..

    Masterbox vs Masterbox black

    just noticed something... I don't know this form factor. Mine is ATX, will it fit?
  13. hi, These two cases are so similar it took me a while to see the differences: (1) Masterbox 5 (2) Masterbox 5 Black They are identical in size and all, but (1) has an exhaust on the top of the case which (2) doesn't. Will it make a big difference for air cooling? I noticed (1) is pretty rare to find, there are only (2)er cases available in local stores. Also, I like the accessories that ships with (2). Oddly, I couldn't find many reviews for (2). I am looking for a future-proof mid tower for < 100 € for i7-8700k and dark Rock pro 3 with side window and good air flow. I'd like to overclock it a bit but the i7 heats up pretty fast.

    mobo heat spreader too hot

    Couldn*t find it on HWinfo. I was looking into the Bios, it sais M / B temperature 33 deg. celcius. If that is the right parameter then everything is fine. I felt like it is a lot hotter but maybe I am imaginating things thank you for your help

    mobo heat spreader too hot

    @Jurrunio, ok, thanks. Can I read out the temperature of the chipset, for example in the bios? I am glad it's normal to be hot but I'd like to know.
