  1. Intel is not a small startup. It's a multi-billion dollar corporation that hires over a hundred-thousand people as a semiconductor manufacturer. AMD is a smaller company than Intel (believe it or not), and while AMD still has great value, it comes down to the needs of the end user. In my personal computer, I use an AMD Ryzen processor, and I love it. In the server fleet that I manage, all of the processors are Intel, and for good reason: they've had more validation and have wider support on a lot of really funky enterprise applications. Intel's engineers are still incredibly intelligent people
  2. Could you provide more details of what you'd use this monitor for? Are you using it for gaming, or is this for productivity? Would you be viewing the display from very off-axis or relatively straight-on? How big do you want it to be? Please provide additional details so this forum can help you the best.
  3. So does it work with the old RAM but not the new RAM, or did the new RAM seem to break everything and you can't boot with the new RAM or the old RAM?
  4. Did it just refuse to turn on one day, or did it exhibit symptoms prior to this (slow downs, lots of stuttering, crashes, blue screens)?
  5. Please provide additional context. What motherboard, RAM, and CPU are you using? Are the fans spinning? Can you feel your CPU getting warm if you touch it? Is this a new system or is it older? Did you build the computer yourself, did you get it from a boutique system integrator (iBuyPower, Maingear, Puget Systems, etc.), or did you get it from a Tier I system integrator (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.)? The forums remain ready to help you, but you need to provide adequate details for us to know what your issue is.
  6. Hotmail is only an email provider. It was a user using a Hotmail email addressed that managed to guess your password. If Hotmail themselves actually participated in black-hat hacking activities, they (or rather Microsoft, the company that owns Hotmail) would get sued to oblivion.
  7. The proper way, like you mention, is by contacting Facebook and presenting identification that can grant you access back to your account, though this may be impossible. It's very difficult (but not impossible) to undo the two-factor authentication, but certainly nothing that's legal. Hacking of this nature is illegal, even if the perpetrator hacked you - likely, they didn't actually need to hack, they just brute-forced your password. If you're okay with breaking the law and Facebook's TOS (and that's a risk that you'll have to calculate), then you should do your own research on how
  8. That's obvious? It all depends on who you happen to run across, and you happened to run across me, and the first thing I thought was image post-processing using Tensor. Forgive me for that misunderstanding. Nvidia DLSS (Deep Learning Super-Sampling) is certainly an exciting technology, and Nvidia is in a great position to run lots of training on their models, since a good portion of the machine learning platforms out there are running Nvidia GPUs and are built for CUDA and Nvidia. It seems kind of wasted (to me) to put the Tensor cores in the consumer GPUs, since the training for t
  9. Are you talking about image sharpening in games or for scientific research in artificial intelligence and machine learning? They're two completely different workflows. I use Nvidia's CUDA and Tensor cores to sharpen still images to aid in my research, but I suspect this isn't what you're talking about...
  10. That is normal. Your PSU has a lot of intricate electronics that operate at much lower voltages, while other components operate at 120VAC, 12VDC, 5VDC, and 3.3VDC. So, power supply manufacturers often put something called a relay in their unit, which uses a series of electromagnets to open and close a switch using electricity. You can think of it like a messenger that's delivering a message saying "turn on" or "turn off". When a relay is actuated, you can hear a small "click" come from the unit (unless the unit uses a solid-state relay, which are much more expensive, so they're not typically f
  11. The Dark Rock Pro 4 is bigger, and it has a slightly higher TDP at 350W compared to the NH-D15's 300W. The DRP4 also has a higher airflow rate, but the Noctua has better mounting hardware. However, it really also depends on your processor.
  12. It really depends on the coolant. Some of these have really funky viscosity that can majorly interfere with a cooling block or pump. Remember, the radiator and water block in your engine block of your car are a lot bigger, with more powerful pumps designed for the somewhat corrosive nature of automotive coolant. Your PC's water block has a series of very fine fins to increase surface area (think heatsink fins, but a lot smaller) that can increase efficiency of convective heat transfer to the fluid (typically water or some other coolant). When you stuff something too viscous to go through these
  13. 80+ is a measure of power supply efficiency. With any conversion of power, there's always a little bit lost. Think about it like a trying to pour a filled-to-the-brim cup of water into another cup the same size. Despite your best efforts, you'll spill a little bit of water. This spilled water detracts from your total power budget, and it's typically lost as heat (though sometimes it's lost as noise). The difference is, an 80+ Gold power supply will spill less water while you're pouring it, while the 80+ Bronze power supply has shakier hands. Bad power supplies act like a toddler tr
  14. A PCIe Gen 3 device can operate at PCIe Gen 3 speeds maximum. A PCIe Gen 4 device can operate at PCIe Gen 3 or Gen 4 speeds. The link is negotiated to the speed of the slowest link.
  15. It's auxiluary 12v power that you'd plug a PCIe connector from your power supply into. It's really designed for motherboards that want to deliver a lot of power through the PCIe slots or want some extra power for the CPU voltage regulator modules (VRM), which is why it's located in that really strange position. It's not really necessary, so not having it plugged in is no biggie!
