    ForsakenLive reacted to JR23 in R1.0 INDUSTRIAL - QUADFIRE PRO DUO   
    It's been long enough already, lets save the writing until the very end...
     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     
    Right, writing, some thanks are definitely in order! As always the Parvum crew for being down with whatever wild idea we gotta get done yesterday and Noctua for getting the best PC fans in the world on the way to me faster than I could type an email. Things have moved on somewhat since I started this project but I’m extremely grateful for all of OverclockersUK's input especially Ian '8Pack' Parry. I will bring it over to see you guys one day! Not forgetting Corsair either, I probably wouldn't of picked this project back up for a long time had they not been gracious enough to sub in the SSD.
     
    Since I drew the first R1.0 I wanted one for myself, I must have built 20 or 30, everywhere I went I just built R1.0's but now I finally have one distinguished enough to call my own. What I’ll do with it I don't know yet but it sure looks good next to LIGHTNING. It was a long journey particularly with the entire PSU debacle that put me off for so long. However now it has prevailed and 1600W+ of Fury can be unleashed at a moment’s notice it all seems to be worth it. The change of coolant and gold CPU block take it to a different level, I know I didn't show it before but the clear is a much better fit for the spirit of this build. Like a lot of things I was uncertain but when it started to perplex people at LAN as it appeared to have no coolant at all then it was obviously right.

    ForsakenLive got a reaction from Essence_of_Darkness in Used GPU hunting, Help me pick!   
    My country has a 50% tax for international products that go over 25USD and don't have a reduced import tax. Most of the computer parts aren't reduced in tax, so even if that offer had free shipping (which is often 10-40 usd for those stuff when it doesn't) it would still be over budget.
    So buying a GPU from other country isn't on the plan.
    Still, thanks for the suggestion

    ForsakenLive got a reaction from Tiwaz in Does Overclocking A GPU Void The Warranty   
    You only void it if you flash the bios or modify the card in any way.
    The GPU is made to throttle itself if the temps are too high, and the default software prevents voltage rising above safety. So there is no destruction going on.
    Also, the settings are saved locally, the only thing the manufacturer can tell is, if the firmware has been modified in any way (and you can still flash it back...).

    I mean, technically speaking, we don't own the Internet. Anyone who knows about Internet's history, about how it started as a US military network that opened their infrastructure and then moved on to leave it as a commercial platform for trading and communication can tell it isn't something the consumer owns.
    There were many institutions and councils that made the standards and "opened" it for everyone, but the bones of it are the physical connections, servers and equipment. It's money what keeps it afloat and commercial motives what keeps the investment going.
    The only thing that people can actually do, instead of talking about big companies is, having state representatives (politicians from each country) use the law to make it a communication platform that is neutral and loyal to the population instead of the companies. And most important, having consumers opting and voting with their pockets. If people complains about Microsoft and Google's policies, then stop using them, invest time (and money) into open platforms, or platforms that have Internet neutral standards. 
    These companies are from the US, a market driven country, if people buy into Facebook, then obviously Facebook is going to have more power and influence, as they are the ones moving the economy and growth.
    I don't think it's rational complaining about what companies do and want, on all markets (physical and digital, products and services), companies will shape the scene to their advantage. Want change? then move away from the bad services (just like LMG is doing with Float Plane Club), and talk with the people that are close to you about the benefits of open software platforms (do it if they actually care about their privacy, we don't want preachers pushing people away from the services they like).

    ForsakenLive reacted to Ryujin2003 in Free Our Internet!   
    Totally agree with what @Forsakensaid.
     
    "Free" internet has different meanings around the world. Compare the spoiled western view of the world with those living with state controlled media (ie: Russia and China). They cannot have "free" until their government changes... However, we have a good thing going with TOR; but again, us spoiled bitches use it for bad things. There are people who are about making the internet a great place, but it's constantly over shadowed by the negative. Forsaken hit the nail on the head. Instead of using FB as an example, look at torrents? You want free internet? Freedom of speech, freedom of information access, yet don't want to pay a dime for it. Those greedy corporations have people who work for them, with families to support. Stealing movies, music, and other pirated content isn't "free" internet. But the choices we, the majority of the people make, the more we shape our own environment. Of course the government wants to limit activities that hurt other people and corporations. Intellectual property, personal property, etc... isn't supposed to be exploited and put up for free.
     
    The internet is a very powerful tool, but if people cannot be trusted to use it properly, the only thing you can expect in return is restrictions.
     
    With that said, I totally am against the control of information on the internet, within reason. Yes proprietary things shouldn't be free accessible. Government "secrets" and what not, ok not a big deal. Keep them. Child pornography and other socially and ethically immoral things, yes please stop hurting other people. But governments trying to restrict information, such as pornography (for religious ideology [ie: Florida]), other state media, or opinions/facts that are contrary to the government's views, is not a legitimate reason to restrict access for anything.
     
    The internet helps to keep everyone connected, share ideas, thoughts, news, etc... But you have to face the facts, we live in a globalized world that runs based off economy. If there's a way to monetize things, it'll be done. The way you act on the internet shapes the way it grows. If you want "free" internet, you have to make it happen, not wait for it to emerge. The internet can truly be what we make of it.

    This is my point much better explained.
    It's as simple as this. Imagine most consumers on their PCs suddenly decide to uninstall windows and go with some non-commercial Linux distro (let's say something like Clear Linux, it could be other). They would have to use the software that those OS support, which means that Adobe doesn't have a market leading platform, Ubisoft won't keep pushing things with their Game Client, and Microsoft won't be able to gather money from Office 365 subs.
    Give it less than a Month and we would get the support of most games out there, all running with Vulkan and OpenGL, without tons of nonsense, fps locking and the need to install more game clients. We would see a much more competitive Office Suite, or even better, a huge investment into LibreOffice that would put it toe-to-toe which what the market is currently using. AMD and Nvidia would launch actual good drivers for Linux. And finally, all this movement would make the people demand openness and compatibility, which would drive the software and services demand into something a lot more in favor of the consumer.
    This is the exact same for online services. What if everyone switches to DuckDuckGo instead of Google Search? Or everyone moves to ProtonMail instead of Gmail?  Or everyone leaves facebook for Diaspora or Minds? Suddenly the scene and markets change, the current digital economic practices would stop making sense. The guys at FreeOurInternet blame the companies and government, but isn't the majority of the population to blame? These companies aren't putting a gun to our heads to create a Facebook account or to install Windows, we do it because it's easy, it's convenient, and doesn't require much effort. You can't enter into someone else's house, use their comfy couch, and then complain about their house rules, while at the same time being completely free and able to walk out of their door anytime.

    ForsakenLive got a reaction from Zando Bob in would this be a nice and cheap pc build for minecraft at 8 chunks 60 fps   
    Specially with mods, you would be much better off getting a CPU that has strong cores.
    The Pentium G4560 comes with hyper threading @3.5ghz for CAD$75. It won't need an additional cooler, and a cheap CAD$65 board would be more than enough for it. This CPU's IPC is much higher than the Athlon's, and minecraft would love that. It's pretty much an i3 with a Pentium name and price.
    Regarding the GPU, you don't need much tbh (unless you go into crazy shaders), personally I'd get the RX 550, which is a step up from the 460. It's CAD$120.  https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/LsNypg/sapphire-radeon-rx-550-2gb-pulse-video-card-11268-03-20g
     
    It's a similar build than yours but with components from this generation and time. Going with the old AMD CPUs and RX400 series doesn't make sense, given it's only a few bucks more while it does give noticeable more performance.

    Low chance of it actually booting properly without bluescreening. Even if it does boot, chance of bugs all over the place. Just do a clean reinstall. If you bought your copy of Windows from retail (i.e. didn't come preinstalled with your old system), you should be able to activate on the new system without a problem.
