Is there consumer s/w available now that uses multi-core CPUs? by Yes[_2_]
Maybe OT, but given the thread about future CPUs, is there consumer software now that actually uses the multi-core CPU technology? I mean, all the additional cores sounds nice, but has any consumer s/w caught up with the hardware? TIA, John Howland

Fragile AMD Threadripper cooler bracket ? by [email protected]
Fragile AMD Threadripper cooler bracket ? This CPU comes with some kind of bracket to mount existing coolers. This has me worried a bit. Their previous AMD X2 3800+ plastic design fractured because of metal screws into plastic causing micro fractures which eventually tore itself apart because of...

I don't know how I screwed up disk cloning, but I did by RayLopez99
I will update this post later. Right now as I type this I'm restoring an image to a AMD A8-5500 quad core machine where I had upgraded the hard drive.. I don't know how I screwed up disk cloning, but I did (and I've built several PCs from scratch, though not an expert by any means). Here's a...

are ****coin miners buying all the high-end graphics cards? by [email protected]
saw this at PC Whirled 2 days ago: Both messages should resonate with gamers, who have struggled to find available graphics cards because cryptocurrency speculators have snapped up the available supply. Meanwhile, those same gamers have had to wait while developers rewrote their code to take...

Ha ha ha I did it: I got an old XP PC running, surprised myself (DellDimension E510 from 2006 surplus) by RayLopez99
This is funny for me. I used to build when I was a lad in the 1980s many a PC from scratch. I even soldered ribbons together for the ATA/IDE interface for floppy drives when they went bad. But I've not touched PC hardware for decades. About 10 years ago, for a song, I bought on eBay a Dell...

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO w/ 120mm PWM Fan by Flasherly[_2_]
Put it in last night, replacing the stock, relatively a petite AMD cooler for an eight-core. Pretty substantial, nonetheless, for their base EVO model: consisting of metal backplate, some offset posts for the backplate, and a cross-member to secure the cooler to four posts. Clip the fan on...

Now let's fix the USB card! by pheasant16
OK You guys helped me decide what to do about streaming old movies so how about this annoyance. Having to physically reinsert the card into the slot to get it found is not working out. However there isn't a dust bunny to be found in the computer any longer. Windows XP SP3. 2 empty PCI slots....

Program to stream .vob ? by pheasant16
Have been away from video for about 3 years. Was going to watch an old movie I'd ripped to the hd with a program called PlayOn. It sees the title, but no longer will play it. Will play .mp4 just fine. Their tech support tells me to remove all media and add back 1 title at a time to maybe...

How do you tell whether a display card's firmware is dead? by Mr. Man-wai Chang
I got a GeForce 8500GT that suddenly malfunctioned. Both its DVI and HDMI ports are dead. And is it possible that it's damaged by malware?

future CPUs from AMD and Intel by [email protected]
Looks like Ryzen has got Intel's complacent bowels unblocked. They are bringing out an "i9" with 12 cores. But AMD will be competing with "Threadripper" a 16-core beast. Unfortunately, it seems that will use the 4000-pins server socket. So I can't see it being cheap.

new machine (maybe) by tumppiw[_2_]

Monitor advice by Larc[_3_]
This is a bit off topic, but I have a question that should benefit from answers here. My main computer is usually turned on shortly after I get up in the morning and not shut down until just before I go to bed at night. I've also been turning off the monitor, but am wondering if it would be...

Almost all WannaCry victims were running Windows 7 by Anonymous Remailer (austria)
One week after it first hit, researchers are getting a better handle on how the WannaCry ransomware spread so quickly and judging from the early figures, the story seems to be almost entirely about Windows 7. According to data released today by Kaspersky Lab, roughly 98 percent of the...

A CPU is a CPU is a CPU is a CPU. https://cdn.arstechnica.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2017/05/epyc_amd.jpg And that's a CPU. Now imagine an after-market CPU cooler/fan(s), e.g. fins and attached heat-wick to a pad to fit it. Most go on a presumption for a base marginally to exceed the CPU...
