    WCG-TPU Cruncher's Hardware/Tech Support Discussion Thread

    Hmmm...have tried to install BOINC OS, and tried to run it from a stick - no luck. When I Google some of the entries from the log, it seems, that it stalls on the AMD GPU (A10 - 8750B R7) or the chipset. Given up and are now running the latest Debian version.......

    Portable Encrypted Storage for the USB Interface

    I have used the DataTraveler for years - the best thing, is no use of software, to access the drive, handy if you are working with computers that are restricted on software.... Very reliable - but as pointed out in the test, not the fastest, but that is not the main priority, in my case.

    It was more ment as a joke - sorry. I only play at 1920 x 1080 and using NVIDIA Inspector to OC the card - and Wolfenstein New Order/Old Blood are running without any issues.

    A Case for Windows Defender: Triad of Perfect Scores in AV-Test

    Interesting.... But no mention of virus definition update rates and, to my knowledge, Defender has no website check (SmartScreen - so they have) no email scanning client. Common sense should be enough :fear:

    Freenas disappeared overnight

    I would try to install FreeNAS on an SSD disk (a small 32 GB or 64 GB are not expensive) Installing it, and running it from an USB stick is often unreliable and slower. And when the system is up and running and all things are configured - remember to backup the config file. (under System ->...

    Randomly losing GPU output while gaming. GTX 970.

    Are you connected via DisplayPort? I have had a similar problem (with my ASUS Strix GTX 970) It was a combination of faulty DisplayPort connector and this: https://www.nvidia.com/object/nv-uefi-update-x64.html

    Intel Puts Out More Official-looking Renders of the Xe Graphics Card

    Looks nice. Great with more competition - hopefully will result in lower consumer prices, for all brands, if it can deliver some performance vs competition.

    Logitech G MX518 (Legendary)

    The texture on the palm surface is annoying to me, on the MX518 - with sweaty hands it gets slippery, whereas the G5 was a little more rough. And then the thumb button, one on the G5, two on the MX518 - I am not a fan of all these buttons. But it is of cause, just personal preferences ;)

    G-Sync - via HDMI or DisplayPort?

    Nothing - besides updating the drivers when they come out, but I can not point out an exact time when the screen began the black outs I´ll check the BIOS on the GPU card, pretty sure I have updated the BIOS (via ASUS official webside) years ago. Maybe it is time to upgrade my GPU - to a RTX...
