    I saw people getting 4.3 with 1.25v so tried tonsee what I can squeeze out of this cpu. So like my 1700 and 2600x, I got a bad overclocker :( 4.1ghz all core, on prime, core 0 and 1 failed at 1.3v. So 1.325v should do it, but still, Boinc 100% does 4.1ghz @ 1.35v I left max pbo 200, auto...

    Crucial P2 Announced: Company's Second QLC M.2 NVMe Client SSD

    Well, someone who wants an NVME drive, 1TB, and not paying high price, the Crucial P1 was a very good choice IMO. Personnally, I can find the P1 1TB for 168$ right now, which is 20$ less than a 660p or 30$ less than a A2000. The only one that I see that cost 10$ less is the WD Blue SN550. note...

You can just slow him and if you have a reactive team, block it, before there is too much damage. You just...

    5 years of Intel CPUs and chipsets have a concerning flaw that’s unfixable

    You could shutdown a server, without access to an iDRAC, iLo, or any other. Having an access to a Managed PDU, UPS, user/password of the Hypervisor/OS... This is the main reason why you set ACL on the management of any device. You never let non admin IP having access to this. It needs to be...

    How many of you Radeon 5700 owners have ditched your cards over the drivers?

    I had issue with december driver (fan speed profile wasn't working, some game problem), but with 2020 driver, no issue. I didn't enable freesync back yet, hope it works fine now..

    Should I RMA my HDD again?

    I saw that a 256mb cache version is a good sign. Maybe i am wrong but if multiple same drive have the same behavior, than a 1tb older model, thats why i suspect. I have a customer who has a 3tb dm003 or 005, no issue at all with os on this drive

    Should I RMA my HDD again?

    don't this 2TB model (DM008) use SMR? instead of PMR like the ST1000DM003 ? https://www.backblaze.com/blog/hard-drive-buying-guide/ IMO, don't use an HDD for OS, just buy an SSD for the OS..

    Radeon RX 5700 (XT) Club

    Received my Asus RX5700 Strix OC. Works fine, low temp (Firestrike, 55C), so far so good. Only thing, I downloaded MSI After burner beta. WHen I have AB running, gaming or benchmark doesn't work. That's some kinda wierd thing. I might try GPU tweak or Wattman.

    Need Suggestion on which is the best Suitable processor for building Virtual Server having 20 Virtual Machines AMD or Intel,

    I run 9 vm on a ryzen 1700, no problem. If the vm dont need alot of cpu power, you can also reduce the limit of the cpu usage. I have a couple of vm running 2 core set to 50%. It all depends of the usage, but 3900x is a nice cpu, and has a very good IPC.

    Can Seagate's Barracuda be trusted for data now a days?

    Cheap and reliable, are not supposed to work together :D Seagate drive are okay, no problem, where WD has no cheap 7200rpm HDD, except old WD BLue.. All I can say, never trust any storage. IF data is important, copy it somewhere else :)
