FIXXX reacted to VEXICUS in SSD TIER LIST
Welcome to the SSD tier list.
SSD or Solid State Drive is a storage device containing non-volatile flash memory, used in place of hard drive because of its much greater speed. Unlike a hard drive, a solid state drive doesnt have any moving parts. It has two main components - A flash controller and NAND flash memory chips.
More information on solid state drives can be had from here..
This guide differentiates SSDs in different tiers based on their DWPD, sustained writes, controllers, NAND types and value for money.

FIXXX reacted to Paul Rudd in Deadlight Director's Cut FREE on GOG March 19th
Deadlight DC is FREE right now on GOG provided you already own ONE Deep Silver game in your GOG library.
421 Mostly Positive reviews on Steams Deadlight Directors Cut.
Metro Last Light Redux was given away for free on GOG a few months ago so if you claimed that game then, you now qualify to get Deadlight DC now. I already claimed it and just claimed Deadlight DC just now.
When you visit the Deadlight DC page above, it shows it as $11.99 but the moment you put it in your cart it instantly changes to FREE as long as you already have ANY Deep Silver game in your library.
FIXXX reacted to kingmustard in Huawei Band 4 experience – and why I returned it…
I was looking for a device that tracked some basic health functions. I don't do sport, so I don't need GPS.
The Huawei Band 4 is £30 (free home delivery from most retailers) and comes with a black, pink or orange strap.
If you buy two on Huawei’s website, you can them both for £50. However, the second one must be pink or orange, and delivery is £5.
I have a Huawei P30 Pro phone, so the Huawei Health app was pre-loaded. Syncing and updating the Band was simple.
The Band counts sleeps of under three hours as a nap and it detected my nap perfectly. First night
I went to bed around 2am. I woke up twice in the night. My alarm was set up 8am but as it’s the weekend, I snoozed it twice (8am and 8:10am) and went back to sleep until 10:00am. Whilst the Band successfully detected my 2am-10:00am time in bed, it didn’t realise that I turned off an alarm, so it thought I actually awoke four times through the sleep, which skewed the results as it thought I kept waking up. When my phone alarm went off, the Band vibrated (nice feature). Whilst the Band is clever enough to know about phone alarms (though it didn't detect my Android-based Lenovo Smart Clock alarms), it didn’t seem to be clever enough to realise my snoozing was not a normal ‘wake up in the night’ and count the last two hours as, basically, a nap. Second day
It detected my nap perfectly. Second night
I went to bed around 12:00am and woke around 7:00am. The Band said I was sleeping between 3:45am and 7:00am. In reality, I went to the bathroom around 3:45am. The Band had no recollection of me sleeping between 12:00am and 3:45am, causing the app to tell me I have had insufficient sleep and having skewed results/sleep recommendations. Other notes
The heart rate tracker appeared to work perfectly fine. It seems to measure my heartrate many times per hour. The battery life, including with continued heart rate tracking and Huawei TruSleep enabled, was excellent. Though I didn't keep it long enough to know for sure, I expect it to last at least five days between charge. The manual says charging takes around 1.5 hours. I unfortunately had to turn off the ‘raise to wake’ function as the screen kept coming on randomly whilst I was moving around in bed. There is no automatic brightness option (either via. an ambient light sensor or by downloading the local time of day) so this got annoying at night. A time-scheduled 'raise to wake' would be a nice option. When you press and hold on the Band home screen, it vibrates and allows you to change the clock face. However, when moving around in bed at night, if you rest the screen anywhere on your body, it not only turns the screen on but vibrates randomly through the night and potentially messes with your clock face. There appears to be no ‘lock screen at night’ function. Whilst it tracks SpO2, you need to trigger this reading manually. This is presumably because it takes 30 seconds or so, and you should be still. All fair enough, but if someone was hoping for continuous SpO2 tracking, it’s not realistic. Not on this device, anyway. Not sure about other devices. There appears to be no way to share the data between Google Fit, Runkeeper etc. There was no ‘Data sharing’ option anywhere in my version of the Huawei Health app (v220.127.116.113).

FIXXX got a reaction from Paul Rudd in Black Desert Online FREE on Steam February 25th
It's free as a base game and stuff. But there's lots of drawbacks in not having a subscription "buff" Premium so-to-speak. Not a sub as such.
I can definitely recommend those that haven't played in a few years - give it a try. And those that haven't - do so. It's a masterpiece with barely any good competition.
FIXXX reacted to Windows7ge in Testing for RAM Errors w/ MemTest86
What is MemTest86 and how does it work?
MemTest86 is an x86 based system memory (RAM) testing tool. Despite it's name and origin the latest free versions have compatibility with modern UEFI x64 based systems. What MemTest86 does is it uses a series of algorithms to write blocks of data to system memory then it reads those blocks back. If the data read matches what was written then the blocks pass. If the data read doesn't match what was written then an error was encountered. Under normal circumstances on a stable system no errors should be found but in the event of overclocking, hardware degradation, or DOA memory anywhere from a few to many errors can be encountered. How many errors are too many would have to be defined by how stable your computer is. If you're following this tutorial and fixing any errors you have makes your system stable again then you had too many.
How do I use it?
MemTest86 boots into it's own environment independent of your Operating System so you're going to need three tools:
A sacrificial thumb/flash/pen drive. NOTE: All pre-existing data on this drive will be erased! MemTest86, the .ZIP of which can be downloaded from the official website: https://www.memtest86.com/ A means of writing the image file to your sacrificial drive the steps of which vary depending on your Operating System.
Installing the Image File to Your Drive
Connect your MemTest86 drive to the suspect computer and turn it on. Now booting to a USB drive may not be set as a higher priority than your default boot drive or be set at all. In either case you may have to enter your BIOS and manually select the USB drive to be booted first in the Boot Priority menu. Alternatively many BIOS's support a Boot Override menu via F10 or F11 at startup. Some even support boot override from within the BIOS menu itself.
Once you successfully boot to the USB drive the first thing MemTest86 will do is start querying the system for information:
Retrieving hardware info. Please wait... Getting CPUID info... Getting cache size... Measuring CPU/cache/mem speeds... Retrieving CPU MSR data... Getting SPD details... Getting memory controller details... Testing multiprocessor support...
After this you'll be shown a splash-screen:
From here to run a simple memory test wait for the timer denoted above to expire and a test will begin automatically:
At this stage allow the test to run to completion. How long the test will take is proportional to how much RAM you have. The more RAM the longer you will have to wait.
When the test finishes MemTest86 will bring you to a results page to show you what errors it found if any. If you do have errors there are multiple approaches to troubleshooting them. Most methods are easy but there are progressively more difficult steps if initial troubleshooting doesn't yield results.
Easy Troubleshooting Steps
Disable X.M.P./D.O.C.P. Re-seat the memory. Swap the memory around in their slots. Remove a stick entirely and re-test. Intermediate Troubleshooting Steps
Loosening RAM timing/frequency manually. Replacing RAM entirely. Difficult Troubleshooting Steps
Testing a different motherboard Testing a different PSU Testing a different CPU
MemTest86 is a very powerful tool for recognizing memory errors when troubleshooting an unstable computer. It's worth keeping in your pocket if you work on systems regularly. It's also worth noting that MemTest86 and it's fork MemTest86+ may not find errors on the first pass. You may need to run it more than once before it picks something up.

I am not affiliated with Ubisoft in any way, shape, or form, I just thought this sale was really neat. With my priorities being on finishing my PC build, I can't really take advantage of this sale, but the least I could do is share it. If you found a good deal outta this, awesome. 😁 If you know that certain games can be found at way lower prices or for free, please let me know! I'll be sure to add additional notes to the thread.
