2T SSD SATA - $250 by Flasherly[_2_]
Direct Chinese marketing - no warranty, no nothing. Except, it is MICRON branded. My Micron, I bought, a USA-distribution of their 256G SSD, cost me four-times, per GByte, more. IOW if that same drive, cost adjusted for this one, it would have cost me $30 instead of $120 I paid:

Unreally Lucky HDD by Flasherly[_2_]
Slammed a few times the past couple days with fast black/brownouts. Not sure if that exacerbated my HDD, which I'd run diagnostics and begun a few months ago to suspect for a fault. Seagate 2T HDD with probably going on 10 years usage. Diagnostic software "red alerts" prompted me to clear off...

Upgrading USB 2 to USB 3 ports on a computer case by Yes[_2_]
I have an Antec 300 Illusion case. There are two USB 2.0 connector ports on the front. I'm thinking that I may want to upgrade them to USB 3.0. Has anyone upgraded USB 2 ports on a chassis to USB 3? I'd like to get some idea of what would need to be done. I could, of course, add a USB 3.0 hub...

PC with multiple organ failures by [email protected]
I was asked to check out a PC that wouldn't boot. It powered itself off after a second. It looked like mainboard was kaput. Then I checked out all the bits I removed. Both DIMMs were bad, and one of the two hard disks also bad. There was no obvious damage (such as beer spillage). So what do...

Win10 ISO on archive.org?? by [email protected]
My partner has a old HP PC, that was originally sold with Win7. It is unfit for latest version of Win10. In another forum, it was suggested to stay with 1703 version if you had it. Microsoft downloads only vomits forth the latest version for punters. If one searches for ISO of older builds, you get...

Intel's Cannon Lake (10 nm) delayed by [email protected]
LONG time coming. Samsung is making 10 nm stuff, but Intel claims their 10 nm is denser than Samsung's. It seems Intel, AMD, Samsung have different definitions of nm lithography. So far, there is a mobile i3. I await something with more grunt. Running Skylake-X on sustained AVX-512 will almost melt...

What is a "Softraid controller"? by Jimmy Wilkinson Knife
I thought software raid was simply using windows to mirror two drives, on standard disk controllers. So what is this card I have called a Silicon Image Softraid controller? It does hardware raid (as I would name it) - I can set up arrays in it's own bios before an OS loads. So why do they call...

PCI express graphics in a 1 lane slot? by Jimmy Wilkinson Knife
PCI express graphics in a 1 lane slot? Yes I know I can fiddle with extension ribbons, but why have they designed the 1 lane slots to physically not allow longer card to go into them? Is it to stop the user squashing motherboard components which may be nearby? Obviously it would run slower, but...

KEWL by Flasherly[_2_]
Thought my 200-watt amp was like 50-years-old: reality checks in to say it's actually 30 and only made from 1985-88. ...Way back when everything was 8-ohm speaker loads. A number of good amps, however, placed for added feature-minded class consciousness, provided for speaker arrays -- in case an...
