    It'll just be used for mining anyway and unavailable.

    Samsung NVMe boot on X79

    Hey all, I wanted to ask this since there's a lot of conflicting info and often the answers are from complete noobs arguing different tangent things. So I have a Samsung 950 Pro working perfectly fine as a boot drive. But do the Samsung 960's have the same NVMe firmware/driver on the drive...

    Microsoft Tests Colorful New System Icons for Windows 10

    It's just constant breadcrumbs for the dumbest group of Win10 users; the one's that want an Android/iOS experience. There's so many behind the scenes things that still need work on or complete overhauls but you barely see any news about progress on these. I feel like 90% of the news about Win10...

    Intel "Lunar Lake" Microarchitecture Hits the Radar, Possible "Meteor Lake" Successor

    I really hope it's successful. I like the idea and approach on desktop too.

    Sapphire Develops a Fanless RX 5700 XT Card for Rack Airflow

    In this type of case/situation, wouldn't it make more sense for the fins on the heatsink to be horizontal rather than vertical? So the airflow is straight through the fins and out the back?

    Linus Torvalds Calls Out Intel for ECC Memory Market Stagnation

    that's the damn point! It wouldn't be so much more if it was just standard! What happens when standard??? Prices level out because everyone does it now. The chain becomes to same for all. People.like you keep this BS going. People like you keep markets segmented.

    Linus Torvalds Calls Out Intel for ECC Memory Market Stagnation

    Just wanted to throw in that even DDR3 era showed no significant performance hit in case any people are like "ECC WOULD KILL ENTHUSIAST RAM". https://www.techspot.com/article/845-ddr3-ram-vs-ecc-memory/

    ASRock Rack Unveils M.2 Slot Graphics Card

    Love the discussion. IGPU basic I think would be so good for trouble shooting or other things. Heck, I use a GT 710 x1 for that now on my HEDT systems.

    ASRock Rack Unveils M.2 Slot Graphics Card

    I want it. If I install it, will drivers show up? If someone from ASrock sees this, can I please buy it.

    Post your Speedtest.net Speeds!

    My service currently; 100Mbps for $55. Their 200Mbps is $73 and 1000Mbps is $70 for 2 year contract and some odd pricing with stipulation from everything in-between. I'm going to be doing Youtube videos soon, so trying to figure out if I should up it.

    EK Water Blocks May Be Preparing a Thermoelectric CPU Cooler

    I'm pretty sure with the right management and algorithms, they can manage the cooler much better. I think some on here are thinking about the basic "100%" on TECs or other heatsinks that either work or not, on or off. It's 2020 though. Software wise, they can make sure each element is doing what...

    I don't get SSHDs

    In a way you can bypass anything proprietary about the Intel caching and just use a different program. They overall show up like normal drives. I don't know if it's hidden on the combined ones though, like the 8gb NAND is hidden on SSHD.
