    SenKa reacted to BuckGup in Apple going beyond 14nm - new 13in macbook pro found.   
    If it has tiny bezels, scissor switches, and proper cooling like the 16in. I will for sure be interested in buying one. 32Gbs of RAM is a nice touch too

    SenKa got a reaction from TVwazhere in Fractal Define R6 + 3950x... will it have enough airflow?   
    Like I said above:
     
    I dont expect you to gain much if anything of thermals, noise may be reduced a bit but not much, and top fans do help though honestly not much. I have not tried 3x 120mm int he front but i dont think it'd do anything.

    SenKa got a reaction from XR6 in [psucultists] PSU Tier List   
    I brought this up a while ago, was ignored, and managed to forget until now. It may have even been on the old thread...
     
    Regardless, I disagree with D+ and C as categories given their definitions. As stated, D+ units are only dangerous in HIGHLY unlikely situations such as if you were building a system based on very early revisions of the ATX standard when CPU's ran off the 5v rail. In a modern system they are perfectly usable, if not bottom barrel units. Being acceptable is not a failure, as a D+ is considered to be.
     
    IMO, D+ should be moved to C and C should be moved to C+. I think it better represents where the units actually stand, as in reality if you were to be going all out dirt cheap on a new system with something like a Ryzen APU, the market for low end PSU's, you would be 100% totally fine with a D+ unit. Though, due to D+ being a "fail" grade in education, most people see those as failed products when they in fact are not.

    SenKa got a reaction from PowerDuDe_DK in About James...   
    From a purely professional standpoint, which LTT is very not, James does a lot right in terms of being in front of a camera. To my memory he doesn't often talk to a wall, he doesn't really put his back to the shot. Honestly his worst offense is that he stares at the camera too much, but thats a very up-to-debate sort of thing and that may just be me.
     
    All of the hosts are fantastic personalities who bring their own thing to the table as hosts. In videos where James works with somebody else he offers a really nice dynamic with his co-host. If he has issues anywhere it's when he's by himself in front of the camera, suggesting some anxiety or stage fright.
     
    My hypothesis (do note I have never met any LMG staff. This may be 100% wrong), is that in the WAN show examples you gave us he wasn't quite sure how to jive with Riley's kind of awkward one-liner humor and just did his best to work around it and continue past it. That's the correct thing to do, but it can lead to the sort of things we're discussing here of egoism.
     
    Regardless, I love all of the hosts. Some lend themselves better to the camera than others, and others only lend themselves well if they are comfortable with the topic, but in the end they are all very good showmen.

    The fact that Apple can get away with not shielding them baffles me. But, ive only been shocked twice and both times it was the same PSU and it didnt arc across my body, only across 2 fingers of the same hand, so I was fine. Hand just cramped like hell for ~5 minutes.
     
    After that service i bumped my service prices for iMac's up from $40/hr to $50.

    SenKa got a reaction from cesh me inside b0z in [psucultists] PSU Tier List   
    Tier D+ falls slightly behind requirements, but has rather unrealistic scenarios where it'll fail in (3.3v/5v transients, overload ripple and so on)
     
    Im going off the description given to me. That description denotes UNREALISTIC senarios, if the Focus FX has GPU stability issues it should not be in D+ tier as that is a realistic scenario.

    ATX specifications matter a lot relating to D+ tier because they only fail under situations basically impossible in modern systems (as denoted in the documentation you told me to read)
     
    If this were the late 90's to early 2000's, when the current revision of the ATX spec leveraged the 3.3v or 5v rail for CPU power, D+ units would be unacceptable due to their exact flaws. Since the ATX spec has evolved and CPU power is drawn from the 12v rail, the 3.3v and 5v rails are under much less stress. I would PERSONALLY argue that between the ATX spec moving CPU power to 12v, and the downfall of the optical drive as well as spinning storage for mainstream systems, a weak 3.3v or 5v rail does not constitute a failure of a PSU.
     
    Sounds like you're the one who needs to read my friend. Here's Intel's spec sheet for the ATX spec: https://cdn.instructables.com/ORIG/FS8/5ILB/GU59Z1AT/FS85ILBGU59Z1AT.pdf
     
    EDIT: That whitepaper ends at ATX 2.2. Though that one DOES prove my point better as it specifically goes through the revision history that shows the addition of the ATX12V connector, it is far from current. Here is the current sheet: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/guides/power-supply-design-guide-june.pdf

    Ditto on the grass roots outreach; so many people have old computers sitting around gathering dust. I'd also recommend looking for surplus auctions run by school districts, universities, businesses, and government where you can pickup pallets of old towers. Good luck, this sounds like a fun and worthwhile effort!

    SenKa got a reaction from Spotty in New 'CacheOut' attack targets Intel processors, with a fix arriving soon   
    All theory, i know very little about how CPU's are designed at this level:
     
    I would imagine that its because these researchers have been having so much time researching the manufacturing process, which architecturally hasn't changed much since 2013. Meanwhile, AMD has continued to change its process with every generation (save for FX 9000 series, but we dont discuss that).
