    The Death Of NEXTPOWERUP

    News quality was so poor. It is only natural... I use more the news/review RSS like section more. It is really enough, only the headlines. Copy paste in another sister site... too much hassle without own original content really.

    Researchers Find Glaring Intel ME Security Flaws, Company Outs Detection Tool

    Nobody knows, speculation. Imho there should be a simple flip switch in bios that turns it of as a module, just like TPM or other mojo things. Especially when sending the device to legacy.

    Researchers Find Glaring Intel ME Security Flaws, Company Outs Detection Tool

    You have an older platform. The tool doesn't check them at all IMHO. Systems using Intel ME Firmware versions 11.0.0 through 11.7.0, SPS Firmware version 4.0, and TXE version 3.0 are impacted. You may find these firmware versions on certain processors from the: 6th, 7th, and 8th generation...

    Creative X-Fi Soundcards and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 = Complete Disaster / Not Working

    There is only one possibility that could trigger a driver fault... Ryzen and its platform + X-Fi... I would agree on that as a primary cause of the issue.

    Creative X-Fi Soundcards and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 = Complete Disaster / Not Working

    It was during summer or late spring IMHO. AWE64 really was something... I have feeling you popped the output Intersil Mute switch or for an older design simple key transistor key. They are coupled further, you cannot do harm, unless you make some hideous ground loop while hot plugging. RCA is...

    Creative X-Fi Soundcards and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 = Complete Disaster / Not Working

    How those things walk together, you are a bit lost. I have had almost any Creative card since AWE64, and many CMI (including Xonars) at the current state Creative is miles better, the still gave a driver to their more sophisticated yet older X-FI platform. If you talk about hardware part, and...

    Has anyone done a total cap replacement on a board ?

    I've done it a lot... well. Do not replace epectrolythics with solid state. The VRM is not designed to work with it. Without math and VRM datasheet it is not recommended to alter it. Just use proper and new 105C

    Creative X-Fi Soundcards and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 = Complete Disaster / Not Working

    30/70. Mine usually had a bad X-Fi controller itself. The caps are bad, the card is usually so hot so with time many issues develop. I've using my second ZxR already too. PCB is actually fragile, melt with Pb containing solder to lower the melting point, then remove the cap.

    Creative X-Fi Soundcards and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 = Complete Disaster / Not Working

    Sounds like any X-Fi when it dies. It could a bad supply cap... I had them a lot, and it is like that usually.

    DarkSide Gentle Typhoon 1450 RPM Black Edition Fan

    Aye, actually I spotted one thing more, mine are PWM these are not. Mine are capable running from 580RPM at lowest BTW. I used Vardar ER's before, but actually bearings tend to wear out for them fast and start to emit noises at low RPM's, like in 6 months for me at least, I made a bet using...

    DarkSide Gentle Typhoon 1450 RPM Black Edition Fan

    I did an experiment and ordered Nidec one from ebay... the are the same except for the color. 1850RPM version. These are fine, no problems at all. I usually salvage bearings from stock intel fans if there is need really.

    I'm using a heatsink on mine and PCIE adapter, thermal pads on both! sides on my 950Pro so it doesn't bend also. Hardly breaks 60C ever.
