  1. I'm using 2 matched pairs of different brand ram. It's DDR3 and they both support 1866Mhz 10-11-10-30 @ 1.5v. One of the kits doesn't support XMP so I can't use that I have to key in the values manually. In MSI's settings (z87 g45), I've keyed in those 4 memory timings, (CL-RCD-RP-RAS) but I haven't touched all the other timings (RC-RFC-RRD-WR-WTR-RTP-FAW). Do I have to manually put those in for each pair of dimms? I've set my ram to "Unlink" so that I can put in different settings per channel, if needed. This is what AIDA64 Says: Patriot (X
  2. Techquickie for Ram Cache. How much does have a bunch of extra ram for Windows (or Linux, or Mac) to use as it's automatic file caching speed things up? Is there ever diminishing returns or can Windows use infinite cache if you give it enough ram?
  3. Super sensitive accelerator pedals (and brake pedals) are not "sporty". They are "stupid". Pedal response should be more or less linear and proportional and not have any "dead zones" either. I'm looking at you, Toyota.
  4. I see uniformly negative press on this, there's no nuance or explanation as to why it's bad. It seems to me there's at least 2 separate issues here; people being dissatisfied with the overall way amazon treats its employees (not enough time to go to the bathroom or for breaks, etc.) , and then the perception that the meditation booth is a poor substitute for the change in conditions the employees actually want. I personally don't see anything wrong with companies installing "meditation booths" in their offices or warehouses. Even if it might be an unpolished first attempt at such
  5. I got an SSD in a refurb computer and it appears to really slow down a lot when after you write ~15gb to the drive. It also gets hot (reaches 60C during writes, 25C idle) Is there a specific benchmark I can use to see if it's the SLC cache that's filling up or if it's a thermal limit on the drive? It's an obscure Super Talent 512gb Sata SSD. FTM51N325H When it hits that limit, it becomes extremely slow , even the start menu or MSpaint takes 1 minute to open, file transfers drop to only 20MB/s
  6. I can't find much information on this topic, apparently intel AMT / Meshcommander are very different from AMD's DASH implimentation. My goal is to have remote desktop even when the OS has crashed, and to access the bios. This reddit post from MeshCommander seems to suggest AMD's implementation is lacking, and I would need to get a "ryzen pro" cpu and possibly a special motherboard as well https://www.reddit.com/r/MeshCentral/comments/d7a7ud/does_meshcentral_have_support_for_dash_amd/
  7. VMware workstation (on windows) does allow for things like autostart and autopause on shutdown, so it can sort of act like a server.
  8. That seems to be the case for the most part. Bluetooth audio streaming has not changed since Bluetooth 2.1. I've used USB 2.1 dongles on a Mac (with a broken internal Bluetooth) and aptX was supported just fine. AptX can also be turned on with romhacks on old android phones. The exception of course is Bluetooth hardware transmitters that are a completely different animal, software-agnostic
  9. Using a Class 1 transmitter helps. The avantree leaf is not very good. I like the Avantree Audikast. Will get you coverage in about 30 feet indoors, maybe though 2 walls. There are other "long range" Class 1 transmitters, but the Audikast is the only one I'm aware of that supports USB input, whereas others need optical/toslink (which is annoying because most laptops don't have this input). USB extension cable is also important for positioning. I'm suprised you're not getting good performance with your Galaxy S9 though. Most new phones should come with Class 1 these days. Apple start
  10. You could always add an extra fan at the back, that might be good enough instead of upgrading the entire cooler... also make sure your fan control curve makes sense and doesn't have drastic (audible) jumps. Multiple medium-low rpm fans are quieter than 1 high rpm fan
  11. From what I'm saying, unless both your phone and your headphones support "Qualcomm TWS+" not to be confused with "Qualcomm TWS non-plus", there's an additional leg of latency that occurs since the headphones form a mesh-like network with each other instead of both connecting to the phone. Like anything bluetooth, "Qualcomm TWS+" seems to be mostly vaporware at the moment, both in headphones and it's not supported by Android 9 afaik. Youtube for android manually compensates for bluetooth audio lag (and apparently, also on Windows 10) , such that this test works perfectly
  12. Welcome to the world of confusing BT standards and oblivious device reviewers. It depends on the type of dongle. If it's USB software dongle designed to add bluetooth to a computer that doesn't have it builtin (e.g. a desktop), it doesn't have to support aptX, because Windows 10 and MacOS both support it in software. However, if it's a hardware-based dongle designed to be hardware agnostic (most commonly used for TVs, often has toslink input), it needs to support the codec you want because the computer will only see it as a Toslink sound device (or USB 2.0 Sound card) and al
  13. Like you said aptx-LL is vaporware on phones, because it need a hardware-level encoder. However, android (and I assume iOS) devieces use a trick where they delay the start of the video by 150ms or so to make sure it stays in sync with lagged bluetooth headphones. This seems to work well with Youtube, but doesn't work if the application doesn't support this feature (not sure if netflix does). Some random video playing inside your browser with jwplayer, for example, will likely be out of sync. Use of BT on a computer could be a lot more hit or miss. And gaming for sure cannot delay it
  14. Okay, apparently I've managed to fix the issue with CRU, I didn't change my Freesync range, but I changed the Range of the Display itself from 48Hz to 50hz. Now I can do the pendulum without freezing up at any FPS lock, and so far in 2 hours of gaming I've yet to get a flicker. Nice! Too early to see if this fix will last. My advice to anyone trying this is to reboot when you make a change in CRU, instead of using the builtin restart64.exe. Keep a spare monitor handy (or perhaps connect using a different interface hdmi/dp) if you get locked out...
