    Windows 11

    +1 dling,.. I installed it on my gaming system last week, and so far seems fine.
  2. Hello everyone, I'm still checking this site a few times a week. And I do miss all the overclocking threads, and also Guest_Jim_*'s science-y posts. I just started a new RL build today, waiting on some custom cooling parts to arrive from BARTXstore. https://bartxstore.com/ I received memory kit F4-4800C17D-16GVK B-die, Samsung 980 Pro, and the new Z590 DARK today,.. vary sweet looking board. https://imgur.com/a/Fds4RIu
  3. Hello Capo, I recommend building vs buying a new pc. However nowadays patience is a virtue if you are going with current gen hardware, you need to shop around and do not limit your search to just USA, or local Micro Center for hardware. Make up a budget, and compile a list of hardware you want than decide what you truly need now, to stay in your budget. To save your budget try to use something you already own or have on the shelf even if it is only temporary till you find what you want new, upgrade down the road when you can. I just built an HTPC for web browsing & streaming video's and spent $800 on hardware. Basically I needed four items,.. Chassis, Cooler, PSU, and CPU. On the shelf I have motherboards, graphics cards, system memory, and primary/storage SSD's. For this HTPC I'm running iGPU for web browsing and streaming video, that is where the patience comes into play, as you will need a graphics card up front for gaming and that is going to be like finding hens teeth currently for a 30-series card. I can list the hardware I bought to give you an idea for cost,.. just bear in mind this HTPC was built to be compact/quiet using an ATX board I already had on the shelf, and generate vary little heat,.. while still being plenty fast. Chassis: Silverstone GDO9B. $98.65 UK. Cooler: Noctua NH-U9s Chromax Black, 3x120mm Chromax fans, 2x80mm Chromax fans. $381.85 US. PSU: Seasonic SSR-600TL. $233.08 US. CPU: Intel Pentium Gold G6605. $95.00 UK. With Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit $157.67 US,.. your not getting much change back from a thousand dollars. Everything else I had on the shelf. You can find a much cheaper power supply, I wanted fanless and wanted to be able to upgrade iGPU down the road if needed so I bought the crazy expensive 600W unit. The G6605 CPU for $95.00 was the cheapest item I bought, and it really surprised me with how fast it is only being 2-cores and using only 58W power.

    Mozilla Browser

    A few things you can try to fix Firefox suddenly not remembering logins or passwords when feature is enabled in the privacy and security settings,.. first reinstall Adobe Flash, than check legacy extensions and confirm Firefox has indeed disabled DivX Web player, if not than disable it and test. If your still having issues than you will need to determine if any password add-ons/programs is what is causing issue,.. Start Firefox in Safe Mode to confirm issue is gone when in safe mode. If issue is gone in safe mode than you will need to return to normal mode, and open your Add-ons Manager, select Extensions. Disable a few add-ons, restart Firefox, test,.. If the issue continues, disable some more (restarting FF). Continue till issue is gone. After, you know what group is causing the issue, Re-enable the last group one at a time (restarting FF) until the issue returns. Once you have confirmed the problem add-on, disable that and re-enable all others, than restart again.
  5. Nvidia Control Panel, System Information, Display: will also confirm Resizable BAR working.
  6. Found a big card to go with that big monitor, the new RTX 4090 and RTX 4090Ti were reviewed yesterday. Nvidia still has a few bugs to work out before release.
  7. Fingers crossed going to give it a go now, see if Re-Size support works with Cyberpunk 2077,.. Kirk will enjoy having another 10-20 FPS increase.
  8. I enabled it on Z490 Extreme with new BIOS 2101, ran a few benchmarks everything is solid. Sweet!
  9. You can use this MSI Guide for CPU Speed 5.2 GHz and DDR Speed 4000 MHz, find out the quality of your chip,.. get System, Memory stable @ 4000 MHz OC before bumping up to 4266 or 4400 MHz. https://www.hisevilness.com/articles/technology/intel-i5-ocing-the-10600k.html
  10. If you haven't already pulled the trigger on the X8ST3-F board, see if you can find a good deal on a new Asus P6T7 WS Supercomputer,.. https://www.asus.com/my/Motherboards/P6T7_WS_SuperComputer/
  11. Vary nice performance boost! Well that explains why I can not see anything in Windows with the 3090, dang it! looks like your going to be doing a lot of retesting in a few months, most boards will support Re-Size BAR with RTX 30 series cards after Nvidia releases VBIOS update in March. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/geforce-rtx-30-series-resizable-bar-support/#:~:text=New GeForce RTX graphics cards,graphics cards starting in March.
  12. I might need to update PCI drivers or install an update from Nvidia, after enabling Re-Size Bar Support in BIOS, Bar support is not showing in Windows when I checked.
  13. On my system I go to Advanced\PCI Subsystem Settings, and Enable Above 4G Decoding, than the Re-Size BAR Support option appears with option to run in Auto or Disabled. Than go to Boot section and confirm CSM is Disabled, and everything is good to go.
  14. Took me 10 min to get out of the garage, first time I played, and got shot, flattened within 15 min. There does not seem to be a Benchmark Tool with in the PC game, that sucks, perhaps they will add it later.
  15. Upgraded to RTX 3090 FE, going to see what fps I get at 3440 x 1440,.. was getting a dismal 50fps with 2080ti. http://www.3dmark.com/spy/16964375
  16. +1 on the long year, I hope the magic of Christmas fills every corner of your heart and home with joy now and always.
  17. I installed the Beta 1002 BIOS this afternoon on my Extreme board, and noticed Asus enabled Resizable BAR support, so intel 10th Gen Core CPUs can run AMD RX 6000 series cards, get a nice 15% boost. ASUS Enables Resizable BAR (Smart Access Memory) Support on Intel Z490, H470 & B460 Motherboards Through Latest BIOS (wccftech.com) Nice looking card, too bad you can't buy them yet. https://videocardz.com/newz/asus-unveils-liquid-cooled-radeon-rx-6900-xt-rog-strix-lc-graphics-card
  18. +1, vary buggy game at this point.
  19. Sorry Jim, your not included,.. Your coverage is always spot on. CD Project Red has indeed confirmed that DRM won't be present in the games consumer release. The company also advised all reviewers that the PC review version curranty has DRM enabled for all reviewers, and will effect performance. Warning reviewers that performance testing content will not align with the final consumer product. Looks like Nvidia released version 460.79 Game Ready driver this morning, and AMD released Adrenalin driver 20.12.1 yesterday,.. seems the AMD update does have Crossfire support, fixes listed in the notes,.. but still no information if CP 2077 will support SLI. I will be running NVLink RTX 2080Ti's at game launch with SLI disabled, and will enable SLI afterwards, see what happens.
  20. +1 I already preloaded the game Monday, 7th December on my Steam account drive, don't have any other accounts, would not want a GOG account just for single game. We don't know much about MP on Cyberpunk, even more so since it will be released at a later time. With that said though, we can assume that it could use either Steamworks for Steam, Galaxy API for GOG Multiplayer (which means Galaxy will be required MP wise for GOG version) with a possible crossplay between the two. There is also the possible scenario similar to Shadow Warrior 2, in which also the Steam version relies on the Galaxy API for it's MP with granted crossplay. Game news outlets tend to report false information, I take it with a grain of salt, some sites reported Steam would have three million players on launch day. Steam shows it's bandwidth usage for the past 48 hours, and reached a peak of 23.5 terabytes per second downloaded on December 7, which is impressive but players on Steam at launch,.. just over 200K is likely closer to reality.
  21. CP 2077 will be 100% DRM free on PC. Generally on Steam if the game runs without starting Client it is DRM free, if Client has no forced built in DRM. This may surprise some people, because the Steam API, does actually have DRM. However it's not forced onto games though, the developers are free to choose whether they use it or not. List of DRM-Free Games on Steam - https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/The_Big_List_of_DRM-Free_Games_on_Steam
  22. Get ready folks the release for PC players will be at 12am GMT on December 10. For Pacific Time and Eastern Time will be 4pm and 7pm on December 9, respectively. Preloads will become available on Steam, the full PC download is about 70GB, looks like according to reports from early players, the game also has a 43.5GB pre-release patch. The launch party will be held digitally on Twitter.
  23. The Threadrippers and Xeon systems would work great,. Are a lot of money to build and difficult to cool when running at full load,.. they would be better suited for Rendering/Editing work. Personally for running Python, I use a MacBook Pro with i9-9980HK processor, 32GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory, and 2TB SSD, depending on which graphics option you chose will set you back $3,700 to $4,500. The newer 2019 - 2020 MacBook Pro with 8-core chip is more than enough processing power for running Python.
  24. I think you will be fine with the 5950X 16-core chip, keep it running at 100% usage.
  25. What type cooling are you using. Also would need to know your OC settings, voltages, max temps under load. AI Overclocking tends to use excessive voltages that can be manually adjusted/lowered. Before running AI Overclocking it's best to run a stress test, or benchmark in default settings to determine you have adequate cooling. Can you open HWiNFO, Core Temp, CPU-Z windows, and run a quick Cinebench R23, take a screen shot of voltages and max temps.
