    LIGISTX reacted to WereCatf in Can i read files (movies, series, music etc.) from a NTFS drive through Apple, Android and Linux devices?   
    I'll have to try to remember that, just in case I ever need to answer similar questions again. I don't have any Apple-devices, so my knowledge of their devices and supported features is rather limited.
    I ain't a Murican and I don't speak English natively, either, and thus also make a ton of mistakes all the time. Let's just all be imperfect together, eh. 🙃

    Try and figure out who’s it was and give it back to them..?
     
    My 5 was stolen years ago, it had find my iPhone on it and is pending an erase. Probs in a landfill somewhere which is such a waste. If you can get it back to its owner, they can at least unlock it then sell it or give it to someone to keep it out of the landfill.

    Easy. Ryzen 5950x, the jack of all trades.
    You got fast core for gaming and massive number of cores for working.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from santimur in CPU 4 pin - 8 pin - 12 pin   
    It would run with just the 4 pin. But… what is the use case? 450 watts is not much, what GPU?
     
    If the CPU will be hit hard, you should have a PSU with an 8 pin as the wattage the CPU will draw at full load will approach the sketchy zone of a 4 pin having enough amp handling capacity. Basically, you don’t want to pull too much power over the cables as resistance goes up and efficiency goes down, and this can cause issues.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from SpiderMan in Help with cpu power   
    More of the issue is most quality PSU’s will have at least 8 pin. So it being 4 pin only may suggest it’s a lower quality/older PSU, which yes, can be an issue.
     
    But as we go forward in time *most* things get more efficient not less efficient. And you can still build a sleeper PC with something like a 8700 or a 3600. Just because it’s a sleeper doesn’t mean it has a 5950x or 11900k overclocked in it.
     
    My 10700k @5.1 draws about 205 watts in a very non realistic stress test. For gaming, depending on the game, it’s really not much more then 130-140 watts tops. Just to put it into perspective.
     
    Either way, yes. We need more info to provide better insight.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from NZgamer in Is there a way to make XMP ram work in a laptop?   
    SSD is very different. As long as it physically fits, it’ll work.

    But RAM XMP requires BIOS that supports setting XMP. If the mobo doesn’t have a way to actually set an XMP profile, there is no way to make it work at the faster speed.

    People are doing what they can to scalp cards and sell them, it’s just business. It’s not cool, it’s not fun, it’s not “gamer”, but, people will always work the system if there is a system to work. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    LIGISTX got a reaction from TheInvisible_Dude in Camera for Landscape Photography   
    I sold my used D810 ~2 years ago for about a grand. If you can find a D810, or maybe a bit cheaper a D800, I would say its one hell of an option. I shoot D850 as my upgrade from those, (had a 800 and 810), and man they are amazing bodies. Obviously there are cheaper options, and nikon FX glass is not cheap (and its heavy gear.....), but lots of megapixles and very solid ISO handling is quite nice. Also, they do very well for astro photography if you ever get into that........
     
    Some examples of stuff I have done with the 850 (I have two bodies, last image is my second body shooting time lapse of us setting up our Astro Photog gear, F1.4 and good ISO handling really is nice ;)):





     
    Also, sorry.... ltt forum slightly kills sharpness a bit. You can expect a D800 or better to be plenty sharp, don't worry, lol.
     
    But, that said, Sony A7ii or A7iii is an amazing body as well, and a lot cheaper.

    LIGISTX got a reaction from wONKEyeYEs in Am I safe or In Danger   
    Electricity's main way of killing someone is if you put current across your heart and stop your heart, or by severe burns/vaporizing. Voltage will make things tingle, but that won't kill you. Even if you end up losing feeling there for ever (this.... likely is not going to happen, don't worry), but even if you did, you won't suddenly die from a numb finger. 
     
    That said, don't take electricity lightly (ha, punny, right? lol dad jokes), it can be very dangerous. But understanding it is the key to safety.

    I think it's more likely to be your motherboard than it is multiple Noctua fans having the same issue. Do you have a fan curve set extremely low and/or fan stop enabled in BIOS?

    LIGISTX got a reaction from Inkadinkadoo in Help with a High end Windows XP 32bit pc for "retro" gaming   
    I have no idea, but yes it'll work in dual channel with 2x8. I am sure a 3770k will be plenty fine for any XP based games. Remember, most XP games were expecting Pentium 4's, and at the high end started looking for core 2 duos.... a 3770k is going to destroy any XP game.

    A few things.... Windows XP is an exploitation nightmare, so just make sure you don't plug it into the internet, or you have it subnetted securely and totally walled off from the rest of your network - it will be hacked if its plugged into the internet, not if but when.
     
    You can run whatever memory config you want, just a 32 bit OS will only be able to address ~4 GB of it. I ran my i7 920 with 3x2 GB sticks of RAM for years in triple channel, but was only able to actually use 4 GB of that 6 GB available.
     
    VRAM and RAM have nothing to do with each other - at all. The RAM limitations of Windows XP is simply a 32 bit limitation, but that doesn't have anything to do with the GPU's VRAM. 
     
    3770k is going to be fine... could probs turn HT off and try and just OC it to the max, not like many XP games know what to do with more than 1 or 2 cores anyways lol.

    I've used both MSI and Gigabyte products, never really saw a quality difference. MSI have been highly unethical as of late, so there's that if you want to take it into consideration.

    These two are adequate to cool that cpu.
    Well the stock cooler probably enough, because A. You don't "use" cinebench all the time. B. In most apps (esp. gaming) the cpu is not doing 100%.
    Check your gaming temp, if it's under 70c you got nothing to worry about.
