#2158614 Phanteks Cooler I Won Here

#2158600 Samsung Evo speeds

Posted by Braegnok on 13 February 2017 - 05:47 AM

road-runner,.. Write cache on Intel 750 Series drives does not work the same as SATA SSD's and it can't be configured by the user.


The 750 drives use NVMe technology with five RAM ICs on the drive for 2.5GB of on-board ram cache,.. and have Enhanced power-loss data protection built-in by design.


Basically with Intel 750 drives write caching using system RAM can't be enabled by the user,.. as is a feature for ATA devices (SATA SSD's), therefore, it is not available for NVMe drives.


So your good to go no worries about data loss,.. enjoy the blazing speed.  ;)

#2158463 Just getting back to Folding

Posted by Braegnok on 04 February 2017 - 06:53 AM

For best results and less stress on your hardware,.. click Finnish on your CPU slot, and when finished with current WU go into Configure and remove CPU slot,.. then Add a few flags for GPU slot,.. next-unit-percentage 100, and client-type advanced. Then slide folding power up to Full,.. set check points up to max all the way to right which I think is 30-min.


It's not worth 3000 PPD running your CPU @ 100% generating all the heat/stress,.. next-unit-percentage 100 flag will only allow download of next WU after current WU is at 100%,.. your time TPF, ETA and PPD are based on time which starts the second WU is downloaded,.. and client-type advanced pays more points then reg work units,.. the beta work units pay highest PPD but can cause issues if your not monitoring your rig.

#2157334 So Trump is the newly elected President of the United States...

Posted by Braegnok on 10 November 2016 - 06:07 PM

Most folks that did not vote for Trump will be proud to call him there President, after his first six months in office,.. they will see that Donald is not a politician and actions speak louder than words.

Just a thought,.. this board  https://www.asus.com...ds/Z10PED16_WS/with a pair of these chips, http://ark.intel.com...-Cache-3_10-GHz might run Dual


two-way SLI GTX1080Ti's.  :lol:

#2152402 ASRock any good?

Posted by Braegnok on 27 February 2016 - 02:17 PM

I have and ASrock z77Extreme4 paired with my 3770K and it's been great! I fold 24/7 with that badboy and the girls stream netflix, etc when they want to.My other rig is an older ASUS board but to be honest I haven't had problems with either.


I plan on buying Asrock E3V5 WS motherboard with Intel C232 Chipset, to upgrade my folding rig. http://www.newegg.co...7-686-_-Product


Asrock has some solid platforms with best value currently and all reviews seem vary good.


You need to upgrade your folding rig or just fold at all! I just took over 7th. C'mon catch me if you can, lol  :haha: jk


I'm C'mon,.. might go with C236 chipset, still looking at motherboards.  https://www.asus.com...0S-WS/overview/

#2149125 just courious

Posted by Braegnok on 16 November 2015 - 04:16 AM

I advise Downloading and Directly Clean-installing Windows 10 TH2 Version 1511 released on the 12th of November 2015,.. Windows 10 TH2 will accept Windows 7 and Windows  8.1 Product Keys,  transferring PC to Windows 10 device when activated with Windows 7 or 8.1 Product Key. 


Windows 10 TH1 or 10240 had a flawed upgrade only distribution and is now obsolete.

#2143970 Acrylic tube bending... why are my bends are turning hazy?

Posted by Braegnok on 17 July 2015 - 05:07 AM

getting your bend on now,.. looks good. :cheers:


while your waiting for new tubing,.. try wrapping some scrap tubing around some different sized dia. copper pipe,.. you will get great looking double turns or 90's using pipe to form bend then hold tightly while cooling slowly.  

#2143887 Acrylic tube bending... why are my bends are turning hazy?

Posted by Braegnok on 16 July 2015 - 08:36 PM

I use high heat setting,.. and keep moving tubing by twisting/turning around while also going back and forth,.. for apx. 2 min per bend.


You want the acrylic to be molten hot,.. but no air bubbles forming that's too hot,.. it takes some practice to do the clear tubing. 

#2143204 GPU Overclock issue

Posted by Braegnok on 02 July 2015 - 05:25 AM

Interesting thing about overclocking dual GPU cards,.. some times PowerTune messes with core clock or does not apply to second GPU,.. seems with your 7990 running 925Mhz normal BIOS the second GPU stays at 925Mhz,.. so overclocking is a no go.


Guess you can leave card at default settings or flash BIOS to 1000Mhz Turbo BIOS.


When you ran the Benchmarks only one GPU was at overclocked settings,.. and in default settings your card was running both GPU's in turbo mode with the higher score.


Personally I would run card in default and let the crossover chip control the turbo and clock Mhz too both GPU's evenly,.. that's a great card,.. :cheers:
