Experiences with non-techies

Recommended Posts

One time I was At best buy seeing if there were any skylake i5 machines for around 500 USD. I asked the guy if they had anything, he started to go off on how an A10 Apu machine will do 60fps ultra if i made the system ram 32gb. He basically told me that more ram is better. After he said that i acted like a smart ass and asked. well does it have a gpu? He said that Gpu's are just a fad and that they are only a scandal made by pcmr.

i mean he follows bill gates , all you need is ram (but 32gb is more than 640k)

In my computer science class today (doing controlled assessment) someone didn't want to do the work because they only chose it so they could play flash games for 2 hours, so he asked me to 'check his code'. I walk over and he says 'can you make it so I can't do the work'. I decided to delete the shortcut for word and pull out the Ethernet cable and he seemed pretty happy with this. Later on, the teacher, who is supposed to be teaching us python but doesn't know how to (me and 2 others are teaching him xD), askes the student why he's not working. The student says that word is missing and that he cant do any research as his 'internet is broken'. The teacher has a quick look and basically says he can't be bothered to fix it and in the end, the teacher calls IT support and gets the student to move along one...

 

Funny enough I had a conversation with the IT guy later that day, he says the problem happens often and that some teachers sometimes forget to connect their laptop to the projectors.

yep  I help a lot of teach when I was in school for the same reason and clean up laptop cart on whells

Please spend as much time writing your question, as you want me to spend responding to it.  Take some time, and explain your issue, please!

It's funny cause afterwards he pointed to an alienware with a 960 8gb ram and an i7 6700 and said it was usless because it only had 8 gb of ram

@themctipers sorry but you know it's true xD 

They did improve on their cooling for the 1080

From reviews, load temps is around low 70ish, and the built in 4-pin fan headers are a nice feature. It lets the gpu controls the case fans based on its temperature.

why is the current gen of GPU coolers so horrible , the rx480 G1 gaming is awful , according to jays that thing is at 80c under load no matter what   , and the cooler is terrible at getting rid of the heat , exausting bearly any warm air while the backplate burns your finger

i am well aware , but this is a cooler problem , the reference cooler does a better job and its just a piece of crappy aluminium, the issue here is that the cooler on the G1 card is unable to dissipate the heat , my 270x , in games when its under heavy load , it gets to 65c and the DC2 cooler on it has no trouble dissipating it , same w/ my XFX 6870, the air that comes out of those coolers is nice and toasty , while its just hand warm coming from the G1 according to Jay in his newest vid

Jay updated his statement in last week's TechTalk pinning the issue on Gigabyte's BIOS which makes the fan spin as slow as it can without reaching dangerous temps...

Okay so this is sort of non techie. 

 

So so at the moment I'm on a training course to do my CompTIA A+ N+ and S+ and yesterday in groups of four we where given motherboards to look at as a practical example now the board we got was practically an antique it had a pentium 3 prosessor and as most of you will know these have pins on the chip and not contact points like a modern cpu and this other guy who has clearly ever touched the inside of a computer before lifts the tentionin arm and just yanks the CPU out and then starts playing with it needles to say I was cringing so hard incase he bent a pin. It was so painful to watch luckily he didn't bend the pins. I'm pretty sure they had given us old workstation boards that had been busted in one form or another so the cpu didn't work but still I was a painful 20 minutes :P

An R9 M290X was as powerful as an R9 270.........

 

A 295X on the other hand was capable of R9 280/X performance.

lol seriously?

 

Talk about a general statement without much truth to it, I can send you screenshots of my 7870 vs my GTX470 ... The 470 easily goes pass 95°c under load while the 7870 never seen more than 72°c ;)

Rlly? I'm not an nVidia fanboy (had both AMD and nVidia), but we all know that Fermi ran particularly hot... An issue that was later fixed in Kepler... I admit that my GTX 970 Phantom runs hotter than my 7970 Sapphire Dual-X, by 10°C, but please don't use Fermi for comparison.

his card still hit 88c w/ fans on 90%+ 

 

the heastsink on that card is either badly engineered or faulty (as i already mentioned , jay said that the air coming from the cards heatsink is bearly warm )

If you want equivalent, the 5870 was classified as such and was still much cooler ;)
