  2. In your BIOS settings, under Power Options, there should be something to configure what happens after a power outage. If it's configured to power up the pc, try to configure it to do nothing. I had a similar issue with a server board and I think that was the problem.

    network help

    You have a modem AND a router ? I may have misunderstood your setup. What kind of service do you have? Cable, DSL, Fiber ? If you have both a modem and a router, what I said before might not be the case and what @techguru said makes more sense. Can you connect to the modem and check what IP it's getting from the service provider ? If it's the same as what is being reported by "whats my ip", then it should be just a matter of configuring the modem in bridge mode like @techguru said, so that the public IP is given to the router instead of the modem.

    network help

    It sounds like your internet provider has implemented a CGNAT (Carrier Grade Network Address Translation) solution in their network. CGNAT is basically the same principle that your home router/modem has, where usually is has one public IP address that is shared between all the devices on your home network, however on a much larger scale. If this is in fact the case, I don't know of anything you can do besides, calling your service provider to see if they can give you a public IP instead of a private one.
  5. The ideal test would be to have two monitors of the same size and same panel technology, (one native 1080p and one native 4k monitor of course), set the 4k monitor to 1080p resolution and tell the OS to mirror the screens. From that point try to eyeball it or take a photo up-close with a camera and compare the results. Of course if eyeballing you can't see the difference I don't really care much about the up-close macro photo of the screens It all comes to whether the scaler is intelligent enough to see that it doesn't need to do any fancy interpolation on 1080p, just do the 1:4 scaling and be done with it. (might even get less lag due to less processing )
  6. Hi, How does 1080p look on a 4K display ? (I mean the image quality between a native 1080p display versus on a 4k display running at 1080p resolution) I've been interested in this topic for a while now and since my monitor has recently started to show signs of it's eventual demise this will definitely be a major factor in my future monitor choice. I've researched this quite a bit and the conclusion is: "it depends". Please read point 8 of the post bellow for a more detailed explanation. http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/278610-display-technology-faqmythbuster/ Basically it depends on how the scaler on the monitor handles the interpolation, and since we don't usually know what the scaler in a given monitor is, we have no way to know the result unless someone else has tested that specific monitor. However there is one exception. It's my understanding that on GSync monitors, the scaler is the actual GSync module itself. So now we have a set of monitors that should in theory behave the same way as far as the scaler is concerned. Can anyone do a side-by-side comparison of the image quality between a native 1080p monitor and a 4k GSync panel ? (if possible the monitors should be the same size, or at least close enough, since a bigger image at the same resolution will obviously be more "blocky" since the actual pixels are larger) I'm only interested in real experience, I've seen too many people talking theory and unfortunately that get's me nowhere. (unless you actually know how the GSync module is programmed ) I understand that this is a question that probably few people can actually answer, I think it's important for people in the market for a new monitor and currently don't have the horses to run games at 4k (or don't want to deal with windows scaling issues )
  7. I'm usually CPU folding in the background. I have it configured to use only 50% of my i7 920, so depending on the game sometimes I need to stop folding so it doesn't affect my framerate.
  8. Might not be exactly the same, however for instance Nvidia's upcoming Pascal architecture will feature "3D Memory" which I think is essentially the same as Samsung's vertical NAND, or at least very similar technology
  9. Can't wait to see this technology work it's way to other types of flash based memory like RAM or VRAM
  10. Great smartphone with great specs including the excelent camera and aparently very good battery life
  11. I needed a centralized place to store my data because having to have and manage storage space on every computer in the house is not viable. I needed to have a "storage warehouse", a place that could store my data with safely with redundancy and with room to grow, so I bought a 5 bay NAS from Synology. At the time there were no 4TB drives so I bought a couple of 3TB drives and put them in RAID1 to start with. I really like WD drives, I have them in my desktop, however at the time I bought my NAS, WD was saying that they didn't support RAID arrays on consumer level drives, and at that time I was also building a desktop for my sister and one of the WD drives would randomly drop from the RAID1 array during boot, so obviously I didn't buy WD drives for my NAS at the time. Regardless, buying a NAS was the best thing I could have done, I have all important data on my NAS, I do "regular" backups of my desktop and laptops to it, the NAS is my private server, video steraming, picture sharing, FTP server, ... you name it the NAS can do it. However with today's file sizes constantly increasing, there is a need for more and more storage, those 4TB drives would really help my storage needs for the next years, and if they are RAID optimized drives even better

    28Tbps Fiber

    Going back to the original post a bit, that 28Tbps undersea fiber is, as some people have already mentioned the backbone of the global network we like to call Internet :) It's not the bandwidth of the ISP backbone, it's usually a 3rd party controlled link that has to be shared by the every data stream that needs to cross an ocean. You can look at it as a country or even a continental link that connects the world as we known it. You can take a look at this link just to have an idea of cable runs we have around the globe: http://www.submarinecablemap.com/
  13. Personally while shopping for anyting I look for: 1 - Trusted brands 2 - Specs 3 - Reviews
  14. I own a PS3 to play games that are not available on the PC like Final Fantasy or Gran Turismo
