Normal jump = short
jump + backflip = long
So my computer started acting weird lately, mainly cutting off the video signal to the display and whatnot. I decided to check out what's going on. Some time ago I also heard really loud noises in my room and I mean REALLY loud. Not a gun being shot, but very close. I knew it was something serious but couldn't pinpoint the source of it. The thing is, my GPU usually hangs upside down because somebody thought it's a really good idea to make it that way. Today I discovered this:
Luckily, I had some spare gpu lying around and my dad said he has the same capacitors (i'm not sure if they are, so I just made an assumption) so he can p. much fix it.
I was being facetious
My Quadro FX just started to die :C
Time to dig out the 8400 GS *shudder*
Is it bad that I want an old IBM typewriter just because I find the mechanism cool as hell to watch?
...And also because they make cool sounds.
Also, CHECK THE POLARITY BEFORE YOU SOLDER IT, if you mess it up, you can potentially kill the whole card.
Hey, don't look at me, I didn't buy it. We just have stuff like that lying around sometimes.
Psh, my radeon 9200 is better
I love my HD dock, but I wish it was faster. it has Esata, but I hate Esata. It's unreliable, the cables suck. Unless I'm doing something wrong. My external Esata ports are on the Marvel. For hotswap HD's should it be on AHCI?
USB works fine but even on my relatively speedy 640GB WD Blues I get 28MB/s write. I was just backing up some projects onto my spare drives to be safe. Moving like 400GB or so will take 4 hours apparently.
I used a 6600GT for about a month when my GPU broke in January (When in turned out to be the goddamn HDMI cable)
I moved my games from my 7200 RPM 400GB "Games" Drive (Samsung HD403LJ) to one of my 2TB 5400RPM "Storage" drives (HD204UI). I was expecting a hit in loading times and such.
Honestly. I can't tell the difference. If anything, It's faster.
This is backed up by some benchmarks I have been digging up and my own benchmarks. My new 5400RPM "Eco" drives are FASTER than my old 7200RPM drives.
Double cache helping it possibly? I Don't know, I don't really care
The 400GB drives are getting on a bit like, 3 years since I bought them I think.
The 2TB probably has much more dense platters = Higher sequential read speeds. Also probably has a bigger cache.
Huh, just noticed that custom profile part.
Pretty damn useful actually
I just fucking cracked my monitor.
Is there any way to fix this?
Duct tape fixes everything
I mean, at least you won't see the crack anymore
Just realized that garryspin.com is dead :c
How many of you would be interested in "Cooking with Cresty"
It would be more of a short "film" Not so much a cooking show.
I don't cook much, but what I do cook, everyone thinks is amazing. I love cooking stew, steak & onions, Pan fried chicken, Lasagna, stuff like that.
You should cook old components instead, much more entertaining
I have a pile of pentium 4's at work. I told my coworker I was going to put thermite on them and film it.
