  • Biography
    Not really a gamer (but I enjoy building higher-end computers for fun of it)

    Electrical Engineer (I think in binary and hex more often than I'd like to admit)

    Semi-abashed railroad enthusiast (they employ me, so I keep a low profile)

    Datahoarder (I have spent a single-digit-percent of my annual income on hard drives in the past)

    Java programmer (I don't claim it's the best, but it can do everything I've needed it to do so far)

    Arduino dabbler (actually, more of a fan of the Particle Photon at the moment)

    Chicago transplant (Michigan is home, but Chicago has taken me in)

  1. I'm almost certain at one point Linus (or someone else LTT affiliated) addressed this, and basically said it doubled the load on pretty much every step of the production process, for much, much less than double the return. Don't quote me, though...
  2. It very much depends on the resolution of your monitors. Two 1080p 60Hz monitors can be driven off one "lane" of DP if I recall correctly. USB-C offers two high-speed data "lanes", which can either be two USB 3.x, two DP 1.x, or one of each. My setup (1440p UW + 1200p chained with MST) means that the USB-C link from my work laptop needs two DP (ergo both high-speed USB-C) "lanes" for enough bandwidth, so I needed to find a dock that had USB 2.0-only support option (separate pins from 3.x in USB-C) or else I couldn't drive both at full resolution/refresh rate (dock would otherwise t
  3. Pics not visible. Paste directly or upload to public image sharing site.
  4. I pay a certain recurring living expense in cash every month, so I handle a lot of it... There's also a couple restaurants around me that are cash only (and really tasty), so I keep some cash around for that. Also, back in non-pandemic days, one of my hobbies would have swap meets that were also cash only (hopefully they'll be back soon, I miss getting deals I things I don't need). Oh, and I collect star notes, so there's that, too.
  5. a.k.a. ConnectX-2? I would hesitate to recommend them for Win10 use (speaking as someone who has them) as the drivers were never updated from Win8, and I'm waiting for the day that the drivers fail because of something MS changes. I think Win10 support starts at ConnectX-3.
  6. Some context would be nice... what device is it from? Besides that, it's a 1.27mm-pitch keyed connector. It's not especially likely that you'd be able to find stock of that one specifically, but 1.27mm (0.05") is a common pitch, so you might be able to find one similar.
  7. int [][] m1 = {{1,2,3},{1,2,3}}; // column - 1 2 3 // row 1 - [ 1 | 2 | 3 ] // row 2 - [ 1 | 2 | 3 ] int row1 = m1.length; // this asks "how many items are in the outside array", which is counting how many rows there are int column2 = m2[0].length; // this asks "how many items are in the inside array", which is counting how many columns there are // all good so far, it seems I might have been wrong initially... let's dig into your for-loops... for(x = 0; x < row1 ; x++); // for-loop syntax should have {...} around code to execute after it // example: for(x = 0
  8. I wouldn't call PCPP a reliable source for product information. 980 PRO has DRAM cache; the 980 does not.
  9. Power SW pins aren't polarized; doesn't matter how it's plugged in, since it's just connecting the two pins. LEDs do matter, however, but that won't stop motherboard from starting.
  10. No performance difference. Might make organization easier.
  11. It's there, just has no heat spreader and is edge-on to the camera (also it's listed in the parts list, so I assume OP knows it's needed).
  12. Which fan header on the board is it plugged into? See page 60 in the manual for info on fan settings in BIOS...
  13. (I don't know what your motherboard is but...) Make sure your fan control is set to "DC" instead of "PWM" if you have the option. The fan speed can still be controlled by varying the voltage on the header, and almost all motherboards should support that along with PWM.
