Re: I see you guys have slowed down a bit. crypto mining anyone?

Still around just forums have slowed down. I have never done any mining at all. I used to do the folding@home project back in the day but that was all. I always thought mining was something for people who already had a lot of computers to try and get money rather than a single computer. Just doesn't...

Personally... I think this should be an OEM focused product that is pushed onto Dell, HP, ASUS and those guys for pre-built systems. It does make a nice upgrade for budget HDD based systems. It's just not a product for the DIY PC builder that knows what they are doing. *drops mic* Hell yes, that wo...

Re: Intel Core i7-7700k versus AMD Ryzen 1700X 14 Game CPU Showdown

Now for a video/photo compression/editing comparison! Plus real world business apps like LibreOffice/Excel/etc. Also, why are people shouting AMD? The Intel cpu is cheaper and hangs right with it....... I was really excited for Ryzen at first but it seems only the very high end chip (1800 I think) c...

I commented on the review also and probably will piss Intel off but it is priced WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too high to be worthwhile for anything but a system you already have built but decided not to put a SSD in it. Price of lower capacity SSD drives is lower than these modules and you could use it the sa...

Re: gigabit dropped to 100mb and don't know why

You can try wiping all drivers, then installing the older one and barring Windows from updating them. Done tried that but I cant get windows to stop changing the driver since it is "incompatible". I am looking at just buying a usb-gigabit or *gasp* expresscard-gigabit. I should just buy a...

Re: gigabit dropped to 100mb and don't know why

Reinstalled windows and same problem. It seems maybe the driver from Windows 7 that was in the system before the upgrade may have caused it to stay at gig speeds but then windows updated the driver and there was no going back....??? I am going to try and get linux to boot from the disc (thought I ha...

Re: gigabit dropped to 100mb and don't know why

Can't get Blu-ray drive to work so gonna try and reinstall windows from external hard drive. I never even thought of the Linux try! That's where I found out the drive was roast, trying my Linux mint dvd.

gigabit dropped to 100mb and don't know why

Ok so short and sweet, my laptop is hardwired ad has a gigabit card in it that I would always connect to my network at gigabit speeds. I noticed the movies from my NAS were stuttering and checked the network settings and all of a sudden the speed is now only 100mbps. Yes everything is gigabit in the...

Re: Samsung EVO Plus 128GB MicroSDXC Memory Card Review

I HATE flash cards and how they have 50billion different ratings and within each of those ratings there are 50billion more different speeds! UGH Kind of like SSD's where why can't every single one be the fastest it can be and that's it? I understand they would charge more and not have the low end st...

Re: Please Don't Hate!

I honestly don't know. I still think either your local hardware store (they may be able to order something), the manufacturer themselves or one of the water cooling sites out there like that one I said earlier (frozencpu). Email them and see if they have something or can order it. It's a shame you c...

Re: Help! Weird problem.

ZoneAlarm seems to be the hog as in a quad core cpu that would be using an entire core for whatever it is doing! Turn it off and see what happens. Or boot without it running and see.

Re: Help! Weird problem.

You should see something using the cpu at least! It shows you have 72 processes running so something has to be using your cpu like that unless it is a hidden malware program.

Re: Help! Weird problem.

I had this problem and it turned out to be Windows Update! I think I went in to services and turned it completely off, rebooted, then watched my cpu and ram. If it settled down then I reactivated update and rebooted. You can go into task manager and end task on the one causing the high usage too, pl...
