  1. Thank you that was perfect. It was checked at "12" but unchecking it fixed the issue. Never had that happen before.
  2. Walmart.com. Appears to have come direct from the factory. The box and CPU are labeled properly.
  3. I've tried all that, and the score is the same. That 2nd screenshot is from msinfo, as it appears even windows thinks its a 6C/12T part. I'm at a loss...
  4. So I decided to upgrade from a Ryzen 3600 to the newly released 3900XT. I fired up Cinebench and noticed my scores weren't even close to everyone else, then I noticed it thinks I have a 6C/12 thread part. I've updated chipset, BIOS, Ryzen Master, etc etc and same thing. Any ideas from the brain trust on what's going on here?
  5. I know we aren't in the world of Star Trek yet, but I come to you searching for an image correcting solution. I have several stills from a security camera and the license plate is only legible enough to take some vague guesses. Is there any software that I can use to clear the image up enough to determine the correct letters/numbers? From my google searching the first few I tried are basically useless.
  6. This is about as perfect as you can get per your requirements.
  7. You can't expect Apple elitists to understand gaming, life beyond editing digital media, or fun in general. If he spent the money on a Steve Jobs statue to kiss every morning it'd probably be alright.
  8. The $1800 13'' ships with 10th gen. The $1200 model (with the education discount) ships with 8th gen and DDR3 memory. I've been in the market for the air or the pro. On the random mac forums users are reporting the bottom of the laptop on both models still roasts there legs even when just word processing browsing the internet. Frustrating. If I wanted to use it on a desk I'd buy a desktop.
  9. The $1200 MacBook begins its life outdated when it leaves the factory, lol. 8GB of ram, 2 generations old CPU, tiny SSD, webcam from 2010...
  10. Since we're all on the topic, which is cooler in the lap, the 2020 Macbook Air or the 2020 Macbook Pro? I need to learn the OS and since even the $1800 Macbook Pro will suck for light gaming, I just want to not get third degree burns while sitting on the couch typing/reading/streaming video/etc.
  11. Probably because they're old and think gaming in the devil. In a way, directing them to spend the same amount of money on a better device that you actually want, seems better than letting them spend the same on something you hate and will get outdated faster. He can be grateful just because he doesn't want them spending money on something he hates. That seems more disrespectful.
  12. Option #1 https://www.amazon.com/HIDevolution-Zephyrus-Moonlight-Authorized-Performance/dp/B086Q99S3D/ref=sr_1_12?dchild=1&keywords=Asus+G15&qid=1590570458&sr=8-12 Can also be found on Best Buy website. Best laptop out atm (or so we're told). Option #2 https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Touch-Intel-NVIDIA-GeForce/dp/B07T4HGF79/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=Dell+XPS&qid=1590570417&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFTNldUTlZUVDU3MEkmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTAwMTMyMTIxVVZEUU1NS0NTOURDJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAyOTUxOTUyNDNEUU9WOFJaWUxWJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ== Good luck.
  13. I've always heard good things about their customer service, but everyone shouldn't have to use it in the first place. I think Linus mentioned he hadn't had one last over a year. I'm hoping this newest Razer 13 fairs better. The only issue is the stupid shift button being tiny.
  14. I'm in a similar situation. I want something 13-14'' that can be used for light gaming when needed. Frustratingly small selection and everything has a negative.
  15. I've been very happy with my 3600 since release, and when the next set of processors are released I have a simple upgrade path. The extra cores will be continually used more in games and other applications. I gave up on Intel because they require a new motherboard at every release, plus I was happy to support the underdog with a truly better product. I have mine paired with a EVGA RTX 2080 FTW3 and it never misses a beat in 1440P gaming. With 1440P you'll notice even less of the slight benefit of the 9600 in some games. My older Intel 7700K is still running strong, but I've been enjoying my switch to team red.
