    RAS_3885 got a reaction from GOTSpectrum in LTT Folding Team's Emergency Response to Covid-19   
    All signed up!  Never actually turned anything off after the last event, but it's always exciting to see a bunch of revitalized activity from the community!

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Gohardgrandpa in Any stress testing software to record min and max temperatures and min and max clock speeds over 20-30 minutes?   
    HWInfo64 will log everything to a .csv file; min, max, and average.  It has any/all sensors you could ever want.
     
    The new version of OCCT is hot garbage and I'd avoid it.  Prime95, Aida64 (has 30 day free trial), Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, or x264 video encoder stability test are good alternatives.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from wolfxtr3m in Help! Overheating gpu!!   
    It may not be thermal throttling below stock clock speeds, but it's almost certainly not going to be boosting as high as it could.  Your temps are safe, but there's room for improvement.
     
    Make sure the heat sink is clean, makes sure case airflow is good (a rear exhaust fan will help here), and if desired you can increase the fan curve a little to see if that helps the temps lower down a bit.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Darlington784 in Usb type-c extender over ethernet   
    It won't work.
     
    Your computer will see the USB to ethernet adapter as a network device, so using it as a USB extender simply won't work.  Incompatible protocols (among other reasons)  Additionally, display signals will not be sent over USB.  Finally, USB has limits on cable length, with USB 2.0 over type-C maxing at 4 m.
     
    Optical thunderbolt was used by Linus because it will actually support the peripherals and display signals over those distances, unlike standard USB.

    RAS_3885 reacted to Eigenvektor in Best way to go about changing motherboard   
    A clean install of Windows already removes the partition and/or formats it, so there will be nothing left except a fresh install of Windows. There's no need to manually remove Windows beforehand. You do need to backup your data though.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from trevb0t in Best rtx card just now?   
    That would be 60 Hz then, so the above suggestions for a 2060 are valid.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Muhlis Gursoy in How to Keep A Window On Focus?   
    Some games have an option to pause on focus loss.  If it has that, turn it off.
     
    Does running the game in windowed mode make it behave any differently?

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Eigenvektor in Best way to go about changing motherboard   
    The BIOS is part of the motherboard, so the new board will have it's own.
     
    You existing Windows install *should* work by just plugging the drive into the new board, however, with swapping to a new chipset and processor you might have issues.  A clean install is probably the best way to do it, but not strictly necessary unless things start acting up.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from ptK in GTX1050TI fans are NEVER spinnig.   
    Just checking, you're referring to the GPU fan connector to GPU board connection, right?
     
    Did you try a clean GPU driver install?
     
    If yes, and they don't spin when set to some value manually in Afterburner, then it might be a dead fan header on the GPU.  Since you said the fans work when connected to a stand alone 12V source that means the fans themselves are fine.  If a clean driver install (DDU) doesn't fix it then it sounds like a hardware problem.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Kilrah in Why high resolutions in some games hurt my eyes?   
    Google tells me the native resolution of your monitor is 1280*1024.  Unless there's a different variant that goes up to 1080 vertical is there a chance your actually running it at a non-native resolution?  That can make things look unpleasant.
     
    What games does this happen in?  That's a pretty low resolution, so it might be the games don't handle it well (this is unlikely though).  It's not even full HD (which is 1920*1080... approximately 35 percent MORE pixels then your monitor has... you're already running closer to 720p in terms of total pixels then you are to 1080p.
     
    Have you tried adjusting any settings (brightness, contrast, sharpness, etc) to see if any of those make it better or worse?

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Lenovo1984 in Rounded Corners PC Screens   
    I already get the corners of some content cut off on my phone since it has rounded screen corners.  Never functionality breaking, but always looks odd when it happens.  It's a compromise that doesn't need to exist for the sake of aesthetics.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Kazadoom in Ultrawide compatiblity   
    Switch to ultrawide about 6 months ago and it's been nothing short of awesome.  I was worried initially about game compatibility issues from reviews and comments online, but have since found it's blown WAY out of proportion.  The only "issue" I've personally run across is some games don't initially pick up on the 3440x1440 resolution, requiring me to manually set that resolution in the in-game settings.  After that they work perfectly at 21:9 fullscreen for the game play.  One or two black bar the menus or cutscenes, but I don't consider that an issue and is in no way detrimental to the game play.  I have not had to do any work-arounds for anything I play, granted I don't have any really old legacy games so there may be something there I just have not experienced.
     
    Gaming-wise the extra pixels do tax the GPU about 30 percent more, so there will be a performance impact if your GPU is not powerful enough.  My GTX 1080 can still hit 100+ FPS in most games I play, but some newer ones it drops down closer to 60-80 FPS.
     
    Non-gaming/productivity is great; really nothing else to be said.  More space for everything.

    rtings.com has great, objective, reviews of monitors. Use Amazon or Newegg to find some in your budget (which is what BTW...?) and then cross check reviews.
     
    There are a lot of monitors out there, so if you narrow down to a few you're interested in then we can better help or provide alternatives once we know what you like.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from IAEInferno in Is it worth it going from a 1920x1080p 60hz monitor to a 3440x1440p 100hz monitor?   
    It's really going to depend on the person, but for me it's noticeable.  I went from 1080p 60 Hz to 1440p 144 Hz to 1440p ultrawide 120 Hz.  I personally don't notice all that much difference between 100/120 and 144 Hz, but any of those are a noticeable improvement for me over 60 Hz.
     
    I run 3440x1440 with a GTX 1080 and I'm not able to hit 100+ fps in all games.  When the FPS dips down to the 60-70 range I can tell.  It's still smooth with Gsynce, but the difference is there.
     
    Regardless, I'm still very happy and will likely upgrade my graphics card sometime next year.

    RAS_3885 got a reaction from Tamesh16 in Why is it that zero Kelvin (aka the point at which something being cold can reach it's maximum amount of coldness?)   
    Nothing practical, but yes, it exists.  https://www.nature.com/news/quantum-gas-goes-below-absolute-zero-1.12146 as just one example from a quick Google search.
     
    Generalizing, Kelvin scale represents the relationship between a system's internal energy and entropy.  Adding energy increases entropy (disorder), which we call positive temperature.  This is what
     
    Systems can be created where adding energy causes the system to decrease it's entropy (move to a more ordered state).  This is what's called negative temperature on the absolute Kelvin scale.  Again, MASSIVE oversimplification here.

    The fundamental point of OP is incorrect, since temperature (a.k.a thermal energy) is measured by the motion of molecules, not the total number of them.  Zero kelvin  exists because it's defined as the point where all molecular motion stops (as in no more thermal energy), but as stated above it's difficult to physically achieve.  Lots of scientific theories fall into the dilemma.
     
    Vsauce has a fun video on the opposite... how hot can something get.  Since all things with temperature emit some sort of energy (measurable via the wavelength of said energy), you get to a certain point where the temp of something is so hot that the wavelength is equal to the Plank Distance, which is what we've called the smallest physical distance possible.  But what if you add more energy... the wavelength is supposed to get smaller, but physics also says it can't.  Our current known theories break down at that point.
