  1. Not to mention Optane SSDs were recently discontinued, so if you want one you'll have to buy one pretty much now. They're fast though!! Can't lie abt that
  2. Iirc Minecraft uses single core a lot, so you should probably go for the 5950X. Two things though: You can't do dual ryzen or core i9 CPUs, those features are usually limited to server CPUs You probably don't need that much unless you're hosting a huge server
  3. It doesn't really look like a good power supply, honestly. Cheap, the brand isn't really known/trusted (never heard of it before), and the power supply 'power table' indicates it's probably a cheaper design. If this is for a cheap office PC or something that doesn't draw much power (or isn't used much), it's fine. But if you're considering this for say, a gaming PC, a workstation, etc., you'll probably want something else. Corsair TXM and RM series, SeaSonic Prime series, etc.; these power supplies cost a bit more, but they'll work for much longer and are from pretty reputable compan
  4. I have no idea why this thread about how to get mod just turned into general off-topic stuff after 770 pages but it's amusing
  5. I've heard the 3070 only gets up to around ~220W, which combined with a 200W CPU should be fine (but pretty tight). Does it go above that?
  6. 650W is enough (though probably pretty tight if you're overclocking); you probably don't need to upgrade to 750W
  7. I'd go with the Samsung 870 QVO; it has better endurance, and better random read and write speeds.
  8. I have an M1 Mac (8/256) and this seems like a horribly designed swap algorithm more than anything. The SMART data is accurate and in line with what Activity Monitor shows. If you keep a RAM-intensive application open (such as a game or a video-editing application) and it's kept in swap, it will write far more than it needs to. You could keep a more intensive application running, doing absolutely nothing at all (open but idle), and it will use your disk at 100-200MB/s, constantly. It also doesn't help that macOS absolutely hogs RAM; it uses 1-2GB for 'cached files', you have to Ctrl+
  9. Well, it'll likely take years if the SMART data on endurance that it gives out is true (about 2 PBW for 250GB). But still, not good design
  10. This seems to be M1-specific from what I've seen though.. Intel Macs (even with SSDs) swap a lot, but they're usually much more conservative doing it than M1 Macs. Also, the SSD (and pretty much everything else) is soldered onto the board, so if the SSD goes out, your system becomes e-waste. Can't even worry about buying apple-branded SSDs when you can't upgrade them in the first place
  11. I'm not really sure, I've just read a lot of reports saying that macOS uses a lot of swap on M1 Macs for some reason. If you do a decent amount of productivity, you could use 1-2TB disk per day, which is absolutely insane. On a 250GB drive that's 4~8 DWPD. Good thing seems to be that the SSD endurance on M1 Macs is also ridiculously high, but that's not really confirmed; it's just what SMART data tells you
  12. I'd like to mention that while the new M1 CPUs are fast and pretty innovative, one big reason for macOS being fast with them is that for some reason it overuses swap. It overuses swap so much. Oh god make it stop
  13. Personally, I have no issue with M1 Macs having soldered-on SSDs. They use swap space very efficiently.
