    Nah, February 16 on this post linus confirms he is not dead.

    {Threadripper Advice} Computer Upgrade Time

    Yes, to 4.5GHz on all cores. I can return it to it's stock clock and voltage and see if it changes. That seems odd.

    {Threadripper Advice} Computer Upgrade Time

    @Legendarypoet The main game I'm playing right now is siege. And the issue is, on a 4790k there's a "bug" (I'm not sure that it's a bug or not but people call it one, the devs seem to have ignored it) where it runs the cpu at 90%. and with my CPU at 90% I can't even run a screen capture without crippling my frame rate.

    {Threadripper Advice} Computer Upgrade Time

    @brob It's slower single core performance can hurt games quite a bit. I'm worried about how big of an issue that can be.

    {Threadripper Advice} Computer Upgrade Time

    @Streetguru I forgot to mention I have a second computer set up with a newgen I5. But I could never really get the capture card to strive with my weird resolution and framerate. It works really well with consoles, that I almost never touch. The budget is to try and keep it under 2k, I already have a lot of the core components. It's just the ram, cpu, and mobo that need an upgrade. (Rip ddr3, and rip My wallet for DDR4) Do you know any waterblocks for TR4 that are copper (I assume it's the best for heat transfer, I'm not sure about corrosion)? I plan on moving my build to a wall mounted case to display everything.
  6. I currently game on i7-4790k 16gb memory 1kw corsair PSU Asus GTX1080 ti I have a 1440p 144hz monitor that I like to see at 144hz as much as possible. ----------------------------------------------------- I am looking into upgrading to a threadripper and need some clarification. 1st, how is the gaming performance in cpu intensive games like rainbow six siege (my i7 runs at 90% on this game) 2nd, Are the issues with games that common? 3rd, Will the cpu bottle neck most games under 144hz? ----------------------------------------------------- I understand threadripper is overkill. I'm not asking for your opinions, I want solid facts/benchmarks. Money isn't an issue, but I can't value buying an i9 or multiple 1080tis. I don't want to just throw away tons of money to have hardware to brag about. I am buying this because I would really love to get back into live-streaming and I don't have a wonderful internet connection to do that. Encoding on slower presets are critical for me to maximize the little bandwidth I have. I will be using this new CPU for gaming, streaming, video editing, unreal engine, blender, server hosting, and a wide array of other things. But I want to prioritize the best streaming performance I can. I do know about the new elgato capture card, but I tried to HD60 and it's really finicky to make work, and requires HDMI sound, which I don't have. I just don't see capture cards being a good solution for me personally.

    LG PF1000U Ultra Short Throw Projector Giveaway

    I absolutely love the idea of a short throw projector. I don't like the idea of mounting a projector to your ceiling so it's pretty much stuck there till it dies or you have a good enough reason to remove it.

    Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ Giveaway

    I love that high resolution camera.
  11. Yeah,... the return on investment is super low.

    I need to run power to a watertight box underground.

    Nothing much. probably less then 100watts.
  13. So like the title says... I need to run power outside to a box. And I want to know what would be the best power cable for the job. I would prefer direct burial. Although, if need be I may use some small PVC pipe. it will only be like 20ft across.

    (CA) Seagate Barracuda 3TB 64MB 7200RPM $116.99

    for the tests to be accurate. They had to run the drives for multiple years. meaning, if it took place 1 years ago, the tests started 4 years ago. Meaning there is a lot of room for change. A cloud storage provider marks failure rates of hard drives. https://www.backblaze.com/blog/best-hard-drive/ Out of about 500 of this model drives, this model had an average lifespan of 2.4 years. Other models from seagate (bigger and smaller) did much better.

    Create Custom Hotkeys?

    Is there a way to create hotkeys? I know that isn't the correct way to word it. But, What I want is to bind my extra buttons to keys that aren't already on my keyboard. Like. my keyboard has media Keys which get the ID 176 and 177. What I don't want is my extra buttons to just act like keys that are on my keyboard. Like hitting a button that just is linked to my "4" Key. Is there a way to do this in windows 7?
