    AmateurPCGuy got a reaction from WereCat in Ryzen 5 Frequency Woes   
    Okay, that makes sense... guess I was worrying about nothing at all.
     
     
    I modified the Ryzen power plan to match what @0x1e said and I was able to lower the system all the way down to 2 GHz, maybe even lower since a chrome tab is open lol...
     
    Guess that solves it. I'm marking this one as solved. now. Thanks!

    AmateurPCGuy got a reaction from RuLeZ in 12" laptop for college... with HD screen?   
    Well, let's be real here first. 12" and Full HD? Throw that idea out of the window, there's barely any laptops that has that feature.
     
    Second, with the theoretical amount of work that you're gonna give your laptop once you entered college (especially with IT), You best be getting a decent laptop with a 2-core, 4-thread processor with dedicated graphics. Personal opinion? Get this Acer laptop and call it a day: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-E5-575G-57D4-15-6-Inches-Notebook-i5-7200U/dp/B01LD4MGY4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1500038966&sr=1-1&refinements=p_n_shipping_option-bin%3A3242350011%2Cp_n_operating_system_browse-bin%3A12035945011%2Cp_n_intended_use_browse-bin%3A9647499011%2Cp_36%3A2421887011%2Cp_n_graphics_type_browse-bin%3A14292273011 plus its just about 500 euros (as of writing this). You can use the extra money in the budget to swap the HDD in there with an SSD, and put the HDD in an external enclosure or something. Oh wait, second looks tells me that the laptop already has an SSD, so just buy an external drive with the extra budget

    AmateurPCGuy got a reaction from Memorizer in My Dad's Laptop WiFi can't access the interwebs   
    try to uninstall the WiFi drivers via Device Manager, then reboot. Chances are, Windows's driver will work. If not, you might wanna use another PC or connect it via hardwired Ethernet to download the WiFi drivers via Toshiba support.

    AmateurPCGuy got a reaction from Christopher_ in [EMERGENCY] Fresh Install Laptop, Graphics Glitching Out   
    Apparently, its a driver issue. I found out that the driver that Windows installed before was the wrong one (no idea how), hence the graphics glitch.
     
    Got the laptop re-formatted and I'm happy with the results as well. CPU is topping out at 60 degrees under load, while nVidia GPU tops out at 64. All that with zero presence of any graphics glitch.

    AmateurPCGuy got a reaction from flibberdipper in [OPINION] The Downfall of Newegg TV?   
    Before I even discovered Linus, I was a fan of Newegg TV, and their crew was still the "OG" crew. Paul, Kyle, Joanne, Jennifer, Steve, etc.
     
    But after a few years (and a couple of office/studio transfers), Newegg TV just wasn't the same. With the departure of Joanne (going solo), then Paul and Kyle (also went solo), Jennifer (went to Tek Syndicate), Steve (went to Monoprice) and Rachel (I think she started a new channel, I forgot), Newegg TV wasn't the same.
     
    Now, as I was strolling through YouTube a few weeks before CES 2016, I saw a pretty interesting video from them: a build guide. Yes, build guides tickles my tech funny bone... Until I saw who was hosting the video. It was Carey Holzman.
     
    Really Newegg TV? Really? That Carey Holzman? The one who made a fuzz over this (and an unnecessary fuzz over this)?
     
    If we take a look at their current crew lineup, the only guy who actually knows tech stuff is Carey, not much else (like seriously, who's on their lineup? Some girl whose name we prolly don't know, although I could be wrong I'm not watching them anymore). But if they want to be an active player in the digital media business, they better do it with someone with a "good reputation". Also, if we look at their current video release pattern, all we see are product overviews (obviously, since most of their content are for their website). No actual fun stuff...
     
    C'mon, where did Yolk'd go? It became from a "irregular" video series to weekly, to none! What happened to that? What happened to the other content back when it was the OG NTV crew? the Q&A session? C'mon Newegg TV people, NCIX beat you in like, half a year, and they did their usual stuff.
     
    Whatever internal affair happened on their side, that's on them. What's prevalent, however, is that whatever steps they took, pretty much lead (or leads) to their imminent downfall.
