ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.
wow, nice trips man, mind if I check them?
ONE WEEK UNTIL THREADRIPPER RIPS SOME THREADS
When will threadripper be available at Microcenter?. I want to build a new system and thinking about dropping a grand at Microcenter tomorrow on a 1700x or 1800x. Don't want to wait any longer for threadripper to become available.
Sorry, I'm so impatient I don't even want to read. I just want to buy the shit and get to building my new system.
Threadripper supposedly single core speed isn't much better than other Ryzen chips right?.
How come that everything that MS touches turns into shit?
It's also a 30 year old product, that they made before they started fucking up literally everything possible.
The entire office suite hasn't had any noteworthy improvements over the past 15 years orso.
I need your help /g
I want to switch from python to c#
but every time i try, I always just think, I can do this faster in Python and i switch back
any advice to keep me in c#
how the fuck do i use this shit?
Its so much simpler to compile something on loonix
Does any tool(s) exist that can properly detect if a hdd is failing?
Got my hands on a quad xeon 10-core system, 64gb RAM, bunch of harddrives, 4800 watts power. How do I begin?
I want to have some sort of host OS, and a bunch of "terminals" around my house that will receive one of the many hosted OSs on some sort of either thin client, or just an extended mouse + keyboard + display that I can load up on a pushstart basis. In the background I want to have other VMs mining with cpu + 2 different gpus. I have 2 PCIX16 slots and cables to run high end video cards. (Currently I have a 980ti and a 680 I'm planning on putting in it.)
Any server-related talk welcome as well.
Anyone using this?
I installed it yesterday and it seems really great, not so much for file sharing but for the communication features like distributed forums and email.
Seems pretty simple to install and use.
I wanted to post my ID here but apparently this board thinks its spam even when I replace all slashes with other signs.
Anyone knows what triggers the spamfilter here?
I posted my ID just fine on /pol/
still no way to get past the spam filter (WTF).
So have ha picture of my key, maybe OCR can import it easily.
ALternatively I post it on volafile or embedd it in a picture, but both seems a bit retarded.
Come to think of it, I recall having the same problem with IPFS hashes a while ago.
wow, so much interest. Lol.
Anyway, I managed to embed my ID in this picture
I used http://manytools.org/hacker-tools/steganography-encode-text-into-image/
They also have the decoding functionality and the site seems reasonably trustworthy.
Hope it works this time
I looked into alternate internet stuff a few years ago and also right retroshare looked like the best secure useable platform. As well as maybe gnunet. I don't use it though because I have no friends.
Hey, /g/. My GameCube, XBox, Playstation 3, Wii U, and Switch have all proven to be great fun, but I want something more. This is why I have decided to save up for the next few months and then invest in a gaming PC!
I'm not too knowledgeable about parts and their compatibilities and whatnot, but I think these parts should work together.
How does this build look?
CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K
GPU: Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080
Mobo: ASUS Prime B250M-A LGA1151
RAM: Avant 166B 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM 2133 (PC17000) Desktop Memory
Storage: SanDisk 1TB Ultra II SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD
PSU: Corsair CX Series 650 Watt 80+ Bronze
Case: NZXT S340
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2
Does that seem good? Are there any parts that I'm forgetting? Do I need to go out and buy more fans or a case with water cooling instead? I'm not much into competitive gaming, or really even multiplayer gaming in general, so I'm just going to buy a $10 mouse and keyboard from walmart. I will be buying a monitor with ridiculously low response time, though.
Not only am I asking if this build will be compatible with all the parts listed, but I'm also curious as to how good it will be. Will the CPU bottleneck the GPU? Other way around? If so, what are better options? Should I get a better mobo? I want a computer that I won't have to upgrade for quite some time.
They all look compatible except the I7-7700k and your ASUS Prime B250M-A LGA1151 but that is ok because you can modify them really easily when you get them. Just take the cpu from its packaging and with a pair of metal pliers you have to bend the 3 top left metal pins till they snap off. Once you do that then it can be inserted and run smoothly.
How would /g/ fix the internet?
isn't this a waste? why not just cut it in half?
Assembly thread :D
I got an iPad Air as a gift when it came out. Due to it being difficult to put documents, music and movies into, and not being able to download movies via torrent, I didnt use it other than reading a textbook which was too expensive to buy.
Is thier any root equivalent for it to make it more android like? Like just connect via usb and copy paste files?
You could use dropbox for documents, and iTunes to put the music and movies on it?
Or you could use something like iFiles that gives you a full file manager, and just transfer stuff to it over wifi
How likely are you going to be able to recover data from a HDD that has been opened in a non sterile environment for like 5 min? Disk was not touched or scratched.
what do you do with your old computers /g/?
