    Benji got a reaction from FakeKGB in Ryzen 9 3900XT only reporting half cores and threads?   
    Wrong, it shows a six-core twelve-thread in the bottom right corner. The "12-Core" is just part of the displayed name.
     
    Go to msconfig. Do you happen to have these things checked? Especially the one on the left. If so, un-check these and reboot.

    Making a blanket statement like that loses you all credibility.... CPU choice is never that clear-cut.

    Oh I'm not even talking about hood height yet, I mean the actual bumper behind the bumper cover. SUVs are regulated like trucks in this regard which basically means YOLO NO REGULATIONS *throws hands up in the air* because fuck everyone driving a sensible car. That's why SUVs have a higher profit margin, lower fuel economy targets, lower crash safety standards, lower emissions requirements, just all around less engineering expense. If they're the new car they need to be regulated like cars not like trucks because THEY'RE NOT TRUCKS but hey the USA is still stuck with arcane rules and regs like allowing red turn/brake combo lights. NO TURN SIGNALS ARE AMBER IN FRONT AND MUST BE AMBER IN REAR. It's lunacy!  I wish we would just adopt ECE lighting regs here!

    Bumper height mismatch is a HUGE safety and money problem. Every SUV under 8600 GVW needs to have the same bumper height as cars. Period. There's no reason to have bumper structure so high when the whole front of the SUV is plastic anyway. Maybe even two bumpers! One at car height and one at SUV height oh right there's no standard for SUV bumper heights!

    Tiny car is tiny, but big, unnecessarily large car is just that: Unnecessary. And these are usually moms that use them to drive their children to school or do small grocery shopping. "Oops, sorry! Didn't see your car there! Doesn't matter, I'm safe!" Can't wait for SUVs and large pickup trucks for regular customers to die out.

    Benji got a reaction from ImperialHub2 in Headphones not going as loud as they can?   
    But to answer your question 😄: Yes, an amp will most likely make it louder and maybe sound a nuance "better" (whatever that means to you is purely subjective), but there can actually be a difference in quality and volume from changing the motherboard and having different audio circuitry. That's why sound cards were such a thing ~20 years ago, because the on-board stuff was garbage. And while they are noticeably better nowadays, there can still be some difference in the way that they sound. But as long as you're happy with the sound and it is tolerable that they don't blow out your ears, I wouldn't invest in anything if I were you.

    Not just that, it means it is also up-sampling and thus modifying the actual audio signal because basically nothing in terms of pure audio on a computer is over 2ch 44.1 kHz, even 24-bit will probably be a rarity. CDs, for example, have a higher bitrate and quality than a lot of audio on your computer and CDs are 16-bit 44.1 kHz LPCM 2ch. The Compact Disc Digital Audio has that as it's standard specification that every CD player has to be capable of playing back. It's called "Red Book" and is from the "Rainbow Books".
     
    I would probably recommend that you tune down what you expect and protect your ears. My AKG K702 for example are relatively low-impedance but require quite a lot of output power to produce usable volume (which is why they are so difficult to shop for an amp/DAC because they can change their sound quite a bit), and both my PC's front audio panel (ROG STRIX B450-F Gaming) and my laptop can produce ear-shattering volume with these things that I couldn't stand for longer than a minute.

    Benji got a reaction from boggy77 in What would help me loose weight faster? Running OR Homeworkout using Apple Watch to do HITT or whatever?   
    Take care of your nutrition at least as much as your physical exercise. Exercise itself is useless to lose weight when your diet is still inappropriate for what you want to achieve. I can't wait for this "How do I lose weight with just doing sports?" nonsense to die because it doesn't work like that. You can do all the sports you want and you'll never lose weight with the wrong diet. And "diet" doesn't mean these useless "30-day crash diets to lose ** pounds!!1!111!11!!!1", diet means your food intake has to constantly change to something that benefits you without inserting more "energy" in your body than you expense per day doing your exercises. That's why "crash diets" don't work: They are not a permanent lifestyle change and people don't stick to them, that's why they have a "yo-yo effect". You lose weight by appropriate nutrition and then fall back into your old habits.

    Thats the thing. More people in my generation are turning to contraceptives. That one thing they stated on the news when they interviewed a doctor. He said more come in about how to prevent having kids vs those who are trying. He further stated he gets stats each day for the number of births and a much much lower than it used to be.
