    Semper got a reaction from Vishera in Can I Use Higher Speed RAM than My Processor Says it Will Support?   
    Before you commit to your purchase, you may want to give this whole video a watch

    Semper got a reaction from Letgomyleghoe in Anne Pro 2 stabs are actually LUBED!!!   
    I don't see where it would be billed as a major selling point, nor why it's wildly important that someone know this information.

    Semper got a reaction from Eigenvektor in does changing my IP change my ping   
    In most instances, yes. You will see an increase in latency.
    The short explanation is that your information is making additional "stops" (also called hops) through whatever location you're routing your traffic through.

    Semper reacted to WereCatf in No, flying cars are not airplanes   
    You're speaking as if flying cars were a thing already and had any sort of a standardized design. They aren't a thing and there is no standardized design, so you can't just claim that they have this feature or that feature. They MAY have those, but whether flying cars will even become a thing is yet to be proven.
     
    Secondly, you're conflating airplanes with airlines; two different things.

    Semper got a reaction from kucharczykt in Is water really the best?   
    @For Science! has some great information on the efficacy of coolants.
    The tl;dr:
    We're dealing with fairly low temperatures here. The closer you can get  to true water, the more effective it's going to be. Additives (even those necessary to inhibit corrosion and growth) detract from the efficacy of heat transmission.

    Semper got a reaction from Letgomyleghoe in What is a TPM, and why would you want one?   
    Trusted Platform Module.Think of it as a physical form of 2 factor authentication married with bitlocker.

    It's a physical key, of sorts, that will tell your computer if it's actually your computer. If the authenticating elements aren't present, the information on the drives is inaccessible.

    Semper got a reaction from Mister Woof in I5 10600kf with 3200 memory   
    It's still a capable platform, but it's starting to show it's age in some aspects. Intel has essentially been reselling binned higher-clockspeed Skylake generation (6th gen) chips.
    Skylake isn't wildly more capable than Devil's Canyon (4'th generation), which in itself was a Haswell Refresh.
    A number of factors, most prominently being complacency depending on who you ask, stagnated Intel's progression to nothing more than mediocre generational improvements. AMD "snuck up" on Intel with a surprise butthole inspection with the release of Ryzen, and Intel's response thus far has been fairly lackluster. Third gen Ryzen is trading performance blows with Intel's 10'th gen at a lower price point.

    There's meaningful performance across the board (workstation and gaming) to be had by upgrading from my 4790k, but not enough to justify the $800+ I'd be spending to upgrade.

    Let's break this one down a bit.

    > You posted an incoherent message that two of us identified needs clarification.

    I gave you suggestions for where to start with the limited information that I was able to understand.

    > You told me you don't care if people understand what you're asking.

    I returned it to you, showing you why you should care, because the information that I extracted from your post was incorrect. I then proceeded to give you further advice on where to start.

    > You called me a dick.

    A third person comes along and tells you how it's going to be. Courtesy demands courtesy.

    > You called me a dick again.

    If you're tired, sleep. Diagnosing issues like this while you're tired is only going to lead to frustration. Try again in the morning.
    Others of us are tired as well. I'm on hour 18 of a 21 hour shift attempting to provide you with assistance during my downtime.

    Is this something you're seeing on your desktop?

    In general, it means you're running an unlicensed copy of Windows, in other words, your install does not have a registered license (or an invalid one) with Microsoft.

    Most of the functions of windows itself will still work, but you'll have the watermark on your desktop and you'll have limited customization options.

    If you purchased Windows, there will be a key somewhere that should allow you to activate it. If you bought a prebuilt system, you may need to contact the OEM builder. If you built the system yourself and created a windows image with something like Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, you can purchase a license which you can enter to activate your copy.

    Semper got a reaction from HairlessMonkeyBoy in [Memtest86] Max Contiguous Errors: 1   
    Anomalous errors can happen from time to time. I'd run the test several more times, if it continues to reproduce even somewhat reliably, back to Corsair it goes.

    I subscribe to the "one error is too many" theory, but I also test multiple times. Others will tell you that one will be okay.

    Semper got a reaction from Dutch_Master in USED   
    Let's start with: If it sounds too good to be true, it is. a 9900k for $100 sounds too good to be true. Even if the person is looking for a quick sale, that's still about 1/3 of current used market price, less than half what he could get for a very quick sale.
    Second, There's no need for the capslock button to be pegged to 11 here.

    Next, know what you're buying. Don't go searching for "Sell me your stuff", know what you want, look for it with purpose, and know what it's worth in the used market. /r/hardwareswap's search feature for completed transactions is a good place to start looking for reasonable prices, regional prices can and will be different, potentially even within the same country. Seeing as I don't know where you're from, I can't tell you what your prices will be.

    VERIFY EITHER IN PERSON OR WITH DOCUMENTED MEANS THAT THE PARTS ARE IN WORKING ORDER. Best is in person, second best after that is video evidence showing the component working, serial numbers or other distinct markings whenever applicable.

    Just so happens that Jay has done a video somewhat related to this subject recently as well. Give it a watch, there's some good information here.
