    New Build: Replacing an 8 year computer!

    Something would have to be seriously wrong @ stock for you to be getting high temps while using a cooler such as this: perhaps bad contact between the chip and the cooler, or something along those lines. I'd imagine you could go fanless if you underclock the chip. This i didn't know: learn...

    New Build: Replacing an 8 year computer!

    That card should hold you nicely until you manage to get the card you want.

    New Build: Replacing an 8 year computer!

    You're gonna buy that one until the card you want is available? Why not just use your current one (system specs)? Sure: it's quite outdated but, for just waiting it out, it should suffice, no? Unless ofc you already have access to that EVGA card, in which case, go for it: way better then your...

    Web Cryptocurrency Mining Evolves: Now Keeps Running After Closing Browser

    Does this also affect linux users or is it windows only?

    New Build: Replacing an 8 year computer!

    Indeed: i did this myself. Just be careful if you use the stock paste that comes with the stock cooler (if you use it before the Noctua cooler) to avoid this kind of potential problems: nearly had a heart attack with that one!

    AMD EPYC 7601 Processors Set Two New World Records on SPEC CPU Benchmarks

    I meant glue as in glued together Zeppelin dies, as Intel called it. As such, it was made possible by the power of glue, also known as Infinity Fabric!

    How to play full screen in Linux under Wine? -- SOLVED

    UPDATE I asked in "AskUbuntu" about this and it turns out @m0nt3 was right after all. It just so happens that i was changing the winecfg settings of the WRONG winecfg, which is why it wasn't working ... DUH ... Just tried it and finally, FINALLY it's in full screen!!!!! Thanks all for the help!

    How to play full screen in Linux under Wine? -- SOLVED

    Ever since i learned about oibaf and Padoka, i never installed AMDGPU-Pro again. @Regeneration and @m0nt3 : those suggestions i mentioned i was gonna try in post #31 don't work :( Also tested them @ the same time but also don't work :(

    How to play full screen in Linux under Wine? -- SOLVED

    I'll try @Regeneration 's suggestion 1st. The guide for Grim Dawn's install specifically states that i should leave that on, though it also states "allow the window manager to control the window" should also be checked. Will test both, just in case, but not @ the same time. Both Oibaf and...

    How to play full screen in Linux under Wine? -- SOLVED

    UPDATE After several Ubuntu re-installs and some tinkering, i still haven't been able to run @ fullscreen without the image being cut in the bottom as well as right side. There's a positive, though: now when i select the 2nd max resolution available (since the 1st one get's cut bottom + right...

    Curved Monitors Worth It ?

    Assuming you end up buying one of these curved monitors, be very careful with how you place it when hooking the cables or some such: there's a dude from TPU that broke his screen doing just that, but don't recall who exactly.

    PUBG Review-bombed Due to In-game Ads on Steam

    I think we already get way way more then enough adds without this. Over here, i've experienced a "short" 30 minute commercial break in a TV movie (not cable channel). Movies on TV usually have 3 to 4 commercial breaks (depending on duration of the movie) and that's OK: it becomes a serious...

    Ryzen Owners Zen Garden

    In my case, it was the 1st time i had the cooler that stuck to the CPU once the fixating part was removed. Scared the crap out of me when i noticed the CPU had been yanked from the board, because i thought i had just screwed my new AM4 system.

    Ryzen Owners Zen Garden

    Assuming you used the stock paste that came with the cooler, be careful when removing the stock cooler so you avoid what happened to me when i tried to swap it.

    7th Gen Core "Kaby Lake" Won't Work on 300-series Chipset Motherboards

    And how much difference do you think there is between creating a "still 1151 socket but electricaly different" and a "one more 'dummy' pin then the old 1151 socket"? Don't both cases require a new socket anyway?

    PC doesn't power down after holding power button for 4 seconds

    UPDATE She sent me a text yesterday, while i was @ work, stating that the PC wouldn't turn on. I arrived from work way too late to do anything, but tried turning on the PC a short while ago and it booted just fine. Since both the board and CPU were changed, wouldn't this indicate a possible...

    7th Gen Core "Kaby Lake" Won't Work on 300-series Chipset Motherboards

    Fugger @ XS said this about the issue in the OP: best not try it, i guess! That said, Intel is just creating confusion where there should be none: just add a "dummy pin" and call it socket LGA1152, thereby avoiding any and all problems with compatibility!

    How to play full screen in Linux under Wine? -- SOLVED

    UPDATE: Took a while for me to test this because something came up and i haven't been playing @ all. Didn't work. If i select 1440p fullscreen, i end up with a window ... instead of fullscreen. @ least like this it shows the whole image, instead of having a portion of it cut off. I figure i...
