  1. These days I'd recommend at least 256GB SSD for cache. If you're using some huge 8TB+ HDD I'd even go with 512-1TB SSD.
  2. Do this. Then do the dual actuator design used by Seagate Exos drives (MACH.2) on each actuator. It should have roughly 1GB/s sequential throughput per drive then. I'm also fairly certain they can make it more compact than this Conner's design from the 90's. Ironically, Seagate bought Conner so the MACH.2 drives are sort of homage to the old times.
  3. Though, does Android have actual file progress? As far as I remember Android only had progress if multiple files were involved and it showed progress of multiple files being moved or copied, but not the progress of individual files. Has that been changed after Android Pie?
  4. Problem is, we don't really have any half decent passive graphic cards anymore. I mean surely someone is making them, but they are so niche it's probably even harder to find than back in the day when they were 75W things for top of the line models and not 350W... It is interesting idea though. Passive cooled CPU, passive cooled GPU, passive cooled PSU, we now have SSD's to complement that instead of old noisy HDD's. But in the end, only reason one would go this route is dust collecting which should be less of an issue in passive system. Because noise wise, you can make system with
  5. Vertical channels create accelerated natural convection, speeding up rate at which air flows through the fins because of heat itself. If you just have bunch of fins, heat will slowly move in all directions from the fins, not creating any draft and be less effective as a result. Similar principle is used for electric home heaters like Glamox electric radiators. Not really. Copper is super heavy and expensive compared to aluminium. Would you pay 180€ or 200€ for such cooler and still risk breaking motherboard by its weight? It's also generally great at accepting the heat, but alum
  6. I wonder how effective this could be if you just put regular (not the "low speed") fans on it in push pull. If it has so much cooling capacity in passive, giving it proper wind through the fins should dramatically improve that. And since fins are wide apart, noise should be better because you don't really need much pressure to move air through...
  7. Are you by any chance using Resizable BAR feature? That thing works like pure garbage on NVIDIA cards. With ReBAR enabled, Borderlands 3 runs like an absolute turd. Constant stuttering, lagging, even half a second long pauses. God knows how other games are affected, but it seems Borderlands 3 is one of worst offenders. And I'm seeing similar in Necromunda: Hired Gun which makes me believe anything based on Unreal is affected. And if entire engines are affected, god knows what else is also affected. Could be Source too which is used by Apex...
  8. I'll have to watch that again I guess...
  9. No. It was marketed as a privacy function of limited scope whose purpose is to encrypt traffic and hide real IP. It only works within iCloud Mail.
  10. Also be aware that starving modern CPU's of voltage means they won't boost as high.
  11. Reason clocks drop under heavy load is due to temperature. Higher temperature, lower clocks. Disabling C states and SpeedStep will only make it worse. Now that you're mentioning thermal pads your problem is most likely there. If pads are preventing you from having good contact or enough pressure, you'll see what you're seeing.

    AIO questions

    LianLi Uni fans have lower pressure, but are also quieter. AORUS fans have much higher presure, but at expense of extra 10dB of noise (which makes them basically twice as loud). AORUS fans will probably have higher cooling capacity, but will be noisier. If you value quiet operation, LianLi Uni fans should be better while still retaining very respectable pressure.
  13. Then again it's SSD. You'd have to literally obliterate the packaging and it's chassis to damage its internals in any way. I don't know why can't they post a photo of the imperfection or damage when it comes to individual damaged items, it's not like they have 50.000 of them. Descriptions are always so generic and indescriptive on Amazon... I'd often take stuff if you'd actually know what's wrong with it. But because of useless descriptions I don't want to gamble.
  14. I think I used 800 and 1200 grit sandpaper. It was only a very thin layer deep so I didn't need much sanding. I don't think staining should affect temps this much, I think it's something else, but you'll have to take it apart and inspect it. I always apply thermal paste by spreading it across entire surface in a very thin layer. I just never trust the X or pea drop and hoping it spreads right. Never had issues.
  15. Yes, copper that has liquid metal diffused into it will have a much lower thermal conductivity than clean copper. Still not sure if there would be such drastic change. Laptops do work on the limit as is when it comes to thermals so it might be worse than with PC cooler. Personally, I polished the copper parts with sandpaper. Used quite fine one to remove staining on my old AiO and also on graphic card. After polishing it was nice shiny copper again. Did this increase of temperature happen right away after repasting or it took few days? When I used LM on my CPU and GPU,
