    Letgomyleghoe got a reaction from Dutch_Master in Building a cheap pc for my Mom   
    be careful on that, most dell/hp motherboards and power supplies are non standard and won't work in a regular case.

    Buy a cheap used (~5yr) Dell or HP unit, upgrade with an SSD and maybe more RAM, standard keyboard and mouse, some no-name 19" DVI/HDMI monitor (even VGA will do, provided the case has a VGA output!) and be done with it. Linus did a video about it, even light gaming could be possible (at realistic expectations) for under 150 USD. (but that didn't include keyboard, mouse and monitor)

    Letgomyleghoe reacted to WereCat in Nvidia GPU Virtualization Hacked For GeForce Cards   
    This is absolutely awesome!
    I definitely can't use this with the current performance limitations but maybe we will see some improvements, especially when it's now at least possible to virtualize it.

    Letgomyleghoe reacted to ShrimpBrime in Why are there not any PGA latching "mechanisms" like intel has?   
    As neat as this product is, it does Not change the design of the socket like you are inquiring about. That would come from the motherboard manufacturers based off of AMD's design specs. I imagine money may have something to do with it. The plastic is much cheaper to produce than the metal brackets of LGA and this helps keep consumer costs down. 
     
    So no, that add on bracket is not your actual answer, nothing more than a temporary fix to the issue. And not a bad one either I don't think. 
     
    Since I delid a lot of processors, most of the time the IHS plate just pops off the die and the plate is stuck to the cooler. I just twist the plate, and it comes right off.

    he's not saying there's no downside, there's downside to both sockets. It's very difficult to bend just one pin on both platforms, and bending a pin on a cpu is much, much easier to fix then bending a pin on a motherboard. I don't see how lga has the advantage, please enlighten me,.
     
    yes but people can bend the pins back, or buy a new cpu, guess u don't know this. 

    From experience it's so, so much easier to bend pins back on a cpu, while being nearly impossible on a motherboard. 
    People who know what they're doing rarely have issues, how do you doubt that lmao? it's like driving a car, who's more likely to get in an accident, someone who's been driving for 20+ years with thousands of hours of experience, or someone who is just learning?

    Well not really because it's only a rant based on opinion and that is great!!
     
    Bent pins in LGA is just as common as pent pins on PGA. 
     
    What's the most common cure for LGA dropping a DIMM slot.... A reseat. 
    What's the most common cause for LGA no post. Cooler mounting was too tight.
     
    I mean we could lay out the pro's and con's to either fastening device I suppose. 
    Really it's those whom have little to no experience have the most issues.
     
    I've flipped 3 boards off my bench in the last 24 hours so far and about 5 different cpus.
    One platform was socket 771 x2 cpu super mirco to s939 for a board shipped to me for testing to an X58 with i7 980.
     
    Now I didn't have any issues removing my waterblock from either platform. Something I may do multiple times any given day I might be working on the bench playing with processors.
     
    To the questions.
     
    Why change something that has worked fine for 99% of users out there, 90% of all PCs pre-built and not custom built. That's why no extra innovation has been applied to making a new PGA socket clamp mechanism.

    Hence why you should ALWAYS have a spare Windows USB install laying around somewhere

    1.Never pay ransom
    2.Always backup your data
    3.Keep the backup offline,don't connect it to your PC when you don't have to
    4.Properly wipe the drive and start a new.

    Letgomyleghoe reacted to jaslion in Ransomware attack aftermath   
    REINSTALL IT NOW.
     
    Like full wipe a reset via the windows settings DOES NOT DELETE ALL FILES. That ransomware can easily still be on the system right now and go into action again. So get a usb stick, put windows 10 on it via the windows media creation tool, select custom install, delete and format all partitions and reinstall all that is needed.

    Letgomyleghoe reacted to WaggishOhio383 in Linus! I can make your relay board work! (The Garage Door)   
    If you want to increase the odds of Linus actually seeing this, it might help to tag him @LinusTech (which I guess I already did for you). You could also post a reply to the official thread for the video, which LMG staff are much more likely to monitor:
     
    Edit: And as @IkeaGnome pointed out, Twitter would likely be a better way of getting in touch with Linus if this doesn't work

    Letgomyleghoe reacted to OU812 in what motherboard should I use with the ryzen 7 5800x?   
    Hell, I am running mine on a X470, if you are running a decent AM4 board that has a bios update to run the 5000s id just rock that.

    Letgomyleghoe got a reaction from Eigenvektor in Need pointers for a computer specs for a car for possibly level 5 autonomy.   
    honestly if you don't have the program written yet, we can't really give you advice. If you have no idea whether the program is cpu/gpu/ram bound there's no point in speccing out a build. supposing that you can build the car/ software in the first place.
    lets us check part availability and pricing in your region.

    Letgomyleghoe reacted to Eigenvektor in Need pointers for a computer specs for a car for possibly level 5 autonomy.   
    You do understand that companies like Waymo (Google/Alphabet) and many others have put billions into this goal for several years already, right? And we're nowhere near full level 5 autonomy yet. Sorry, but this really is not something you can build in your garage on a shoestring budget.

    Letgomyleghoe reacted to jerryraynelson3 in Opinion on taking off a cpu fan   
    I think it should be fine.  The fan doesn't actually need to touch the heat sink but it does need to provide airflow.  120mm should work.
