    WereCatf got a reaction from Moonzy in Intel's TDP ratings for higher-end CPUs make no sense anymore   
    To be quite frank, they have never made much sense. I guess the move from "not much" to "completely zero" is still some sort of an achievement, but....

    You're asking for a magical thing. There is no non-magical thing that's going to be able to render videos on your hardware both fast and well. With any non-magical thing, you'll either have to compromise on speed or quality, there is simply no way around that.

    WereCatf got a reaction from Mister Woof in How many PCs do you have in your household?   
    My husband has a laptop and a desktop. I have...6 desktops, 6 laptops, two different mini-PCs, one running a Pentium N4200 and the other running a Celeron J4115, plus a bunch of ARM-based SBCs as well. No kids or other adults in the household.
     
    You didn't specify whether non-x86 computers count, so: I own 14 out of total 16 x86-compatible computers in the household 😅

    WereCatf got a reaction from Bad5ector in Why do people use plex for storing movies on a NAS? And why do they choose it over SMB sharing?   
    Again this strawman: the PC doesn't need to be beefy. Even an Intel iGPU can do the transcoding-task, besides which, it only transcodes anyway when the client can't play the video as-is. You're only making yourself look stupid with these strawmen.

    Nope. I paid 80€ for a Geforce GTX 1050. Hardly an expensive buy.

    And? It would be running 24/7 even with your solution of just buying more storage-space and maintaining multiple versions of everything, so your argument is entirely moot.

    WereCatf got a reaction from Speedbird in High speed link between 2 computers   
    USB 3.0 is 5Gbps. USB-C is just the connector, it does NOT say anything about the speed of the port, so that's irrelevant. You also can't use just plain, old male-to-male USB-cables; you need specifically a bridge-cable. Connecting USB from one PC to another PC directly with a regular cable would most likely burn the USB-ports on both PCs.
     
    From a quick googling around it seems USB 3.0 <-> USB 3.0 network only achieves around 1Gbps - 2Gbps speeds in practice, so it'd barely be any better than just regular gigabit Ethernet. I can not find any USB 3.2 bridge-cables at all.

    All the games I play also have extremely toxic playerbases.
     
     
    ....I only play single-player games and the playerbase thus consists of just me. 😬

    WereCatf reacted to svmlegacy in CONSULTATION NEEDED - SUB 0 LIQUID COOLED DAILY DRIVER BUILD   
    People are seeing 4.6 GHz all-core P95 at 57°C PBO enabled, leaving 300 MHz tops for further scaling without manual OCing (I think PBO2 allows extending the limit, but ymmv). You're doing this for much less than 10% performance gain.
    Sub-ambient is something that should be reserved for manual overclocking. I doubt you'll see more than 10% gain without comprimising the longevity of the CPU.
     
    1/4 HP motor does not mean 1/4 HP of heat transfer. as far as I can tell, they don't list the cooling capacity of the unit. It could be more or less than the motor's power draw.
    Also, you'll need to analyze the performance at your desired temperature split. As you mentioned, you're aware, but chillers loose a lot of efficiency as the split increases. There's zero point in taking a blanket number without context.
    Your 900W chillers, that's very peak performance.

     
    Dessicant does virtually nothing in sub-zero temperatures.
     
    20 - 30 gallons of coolant for "thermal mass" is completely and uttery excessive. If it's for the freezer itself, ice packs would work much better, as that will take advantage of the latent heat in freezing.
     
    One last comment.. just because your incoming coolant is -10°C does not mean that your CPU core will stay at 0°C. Particularly with small lithographies, the heat density is intense, and will easily make a significant temperature split from the cold plate.
     
    Edit 1: I should also mention that the NAND of NVMe storage is not fond of cold temperatures, and you may see write performance suffer if you choose to put an NVMe drive inside the freezer chamber.

    WereCatf got a reaction from karksars in How should I clean my motherboard, and how often should I do it?   
    Just some canned air is by far the easiest and most practical way. Obviously, the PC has to be fully off, including the switch at the back of the PSU.
