    ShrimpBrime reacted to Jurrunio in Why does my RAM have a 10 NS higher latency than a reviewer with the same specs?   
    1. AIDA version is different
    2. AGESA version  in the BIOS is maybe different
    3. If the mobo is different then all the obscure timings will be different (also how far you can go will change)
    4. If the mobo is the same but BIOS is different, timings could also be different.

    ShrimpBrime got a reaction from freeagent in Question about Samsung B-die   
    B-Die is known to scale well with voltage. But the lower the frequency you buy into, the lower binned the B-Die is. It didn't pass certain tests at x frequency and voltage to be a higher released frequency module. 
     
    For 140$ newegg has 3600mhz B-Die.

    Let's not forget the good ole ARD head of the C15 that literally shot a diesel fuel fired flame front down the exhaust to burn out the DPF.
     
    Had one with a undercarriage mounted exhaust jack up a concrete apron once 😲

    To get access to some of the modules you may need scanner that is updated to allow access, or the manufacture's diagnostic software to get access. This happens sometimes and it really sucks when you can't fix something that should be easy to solve.
    This is one off the many reasons why I drive a vehicle that is 25 years or older.

    I have no turbos either. Don't need em. 
     
    My muscle is 5.3L 2003 suburban.

    This car actually goes pretty good.

    Every damn light on the dash.
    30mpg no problem. 20$ every 2 weeks in fuel.

    I have two non-turbo boring family cars now (2016 Acura TLX/2012 Honda Accord LX) don't care anymore about going fast.

    Thats why guys like the dodge Cummins diesel trucks. Delete EGR, slap in a tuner and push 30 lbs of boost XD.
    I gotta be honest. I can't stand C10 and C13 Acert twin turbo CAT engines. Its the biggest fucking head ache to do anything to that motor. Just installing the cam Id like to shoot the engineers. Gotta tie up all the fuckin rockers. Why. Just why. Lol

    Kind of off-topic but, when I used to have my 2017 Civic Si (completely stock mind you) two times it gave me an entire christmas tree of codes on the dash and went into super duper limp mode.
     
    Basically had to reset the BIOS (disconnect battery) for it to go away.
     
    Apparently it's a thing - it just glitches out for no apparent reason sometimes. Or perhaps the fuel mixture gets stupid from low-quality fuel. Not sure.
     
    No more turbos for me - after owning 2 of them both of them always did weird shit.

    I have a 2010 impala in the garage right now.
    Came back from the dealer for a diag and in worse shape.
    Oil pressure sensor circuit high. No MIL active, fails every key start.
     
    ABS complaint, active light. Can't get it to come on for myself.
    Plug in my 500$ scanner. ABS module no communication.
    Trying to determine bad connection at the module or my scan tool.
    Key off, plug in scan tool and module is read, no faults.
     
    Drove through the rain, puddles.... No active faults, system normal.
    Speed sensors at proper voltage and wheel speed read outs normal.
     
    I have to drive this car around until it throws a fault. Until then.... nothing stored. The dealer cleared all faults. Thanks guys. Jag offs.

    Intel sold them netburst on frequency not promised IPC XD. No different than FX chips. "First 5ghz cpu" and I guess it was, just didn't mean a hill of beans for either of them at those times haha.
     
    Funny though, we still produce and use chips at the same TDP. *shurgs* Just have bunches more epeen and cores/threads these days.
     
    When dual cores where the new talk. ho hum that would be boring today XD

    I have Win2K drivers for this.
     
    Also, here's an 8-bit ISA 33.6K Winmodem:
    I found the drivers for them... sort of. They were on an FTP server, but that FTP server no longer exists.
    So guess I'm going Internet hunting. Fun!
