No. It looks like that speaker is made to support bi-amping or bi-wiring, but whoever took that picture is in fact using a single amp and a single speaker cable and as such has connected both inputs to the same cable. My speakers support that too, except they come with metal pieces to connect the inputs if you're using a single amp, so that you don't have to fuck with running wires from one set to the other. You just need to connect both pairs of terminals for the entire speaker to work.

I guess so, though if the speakers have screw terminals you don't need any fancy connectors, you can just use another 2 short pieces of wire. I'm guessing the ones in the picture do also have screw connectors, the guy just used banana plugs or whatever those are.

How are the Verbatim "archival" series discs for archival?

I have some data I would like to archive for 10+ years. It is a small amount (under 2 GB) and mostly small files. Some reasons I am considering these:
>supposed to be the best for lifespan other than M-disc
>Don't have to buy a new dvd drive (would like to use m-disk, but would need a new drive)
>Don't have bluray drive
>DVD drives are far more common than bluray drives, bluray drives also have dvd compatibility
>cheap compared to anything else for the small amount of data I have

Can anyone help give me some ideas on why my GPU is randomly dropping to near 0% usage during gaming causing frame drops?
I don't think it's temperature because the frame drops happen on less heavy games too. I don't think its a crypto miner because I scanned the shit out of my computer. I don't think it's the CPU because there's no succint CPU pattern I can glean from when the frame drops happen. It's not memory or RAM either. I don't think its age because I'm not getting any artifacting during gaming, just frame drops.
So my best guesses are that it's a faulty NVIDIA driver fucking with my 980 Ti or something to do with the power and voltage of the GPU. Or maybe power of the CPU. It still could be temperature, but I will need to turn down the temperature limit on Afterburner to make sure.

I'm going to do some Hardware Monitoring tonight to get a log.
And please AMD fanboys, I can't afford any GPU, so no I'm not going to just trash my current one and buy AMD if it's an actually fixable problem.

I have a good PSU.

>> No.71189631

Please help, I was playing Outward split screen with my brother today, and my computer crashed to black, no BSOD or error message. I thought I had mistakenly hit the power button with my chair or leg, but after trying to restart it, the fans kicked on like it was going to boot, but no BIOS beeps and then it turned back off. I tried powering on again, but this time not even the fans kicked on. Now all that happens is when I flick my PSU's switch, the mobo will light up for a second and then turn off, no LEDs on my power button either, but my DAC that's plugged in will get enough power to have it's on button on. I've tried unplugging the PSU and holding the button to drain residual charge, no dice, tried switching outlets and surge protectors, no dice. Can anyone help me out? If I was getting BIOS beeps I'd have something to go off, but I'm guessing since it won't POST I'm looking at either a fried mobo, or fired CPU. The CPU being fried would surprise me though, I make sure to monitor temps on Ryzen master and since undervolting I've never seen it go above 70. Here's my build

Are ssd prices bound to drop in the near future? I'm super late to the party, but I just got a 500gb ssd added to my case. The only downside to the thing is that it has highlighted just how much of a background hum my old hdd (which is now used purely for storage) adds while it's spinning. Or rather, how much quieter things get when it spins down after not being in use for a while. It's not that awful, any moderate amount of background noise will drown it out pretty effectively, but I'm still gonna look into replacing it with another ssd sometime in the future.

I am writing a report where I compare the performance of an ARM processor and and x86-64 processor.
I want to take price and power consumption into the calculation of performance.
Performance is measured with a benchmark and also to see how many seconds on average it takes to run a certain set of programs.
I know that to find the performance-cost/power ratio for the benchmark is to divide its result by cost/power, as the higher the cost/power the more it drags down the ratio.
But what about measuring in seconds? As the less seconds it takes, the better the performance. But dividing an already fast processor by a large number would produce an even smaller number and wouldn't provide any sort of proper ratio right?

Here's my situation:
I have a Plex server. I also use that server for torrents, and so I use a VPN as well. I want to have my Plex run through my regular network adapter while I have everything else run through my VPN.

Additionally, the drives for Plex stuff and for torrents are the same. As I am a brainlet, I'm not sure if it's okay to use the regular "just run plex in a VM and torrents on host" solution because I'll need to mount the filesystems in both the guest and the host. I'm not sure if that's safe or can lead to data corruption.

This brings me to my question:
How can I achieve running Plex via regular adapter and torrents via VPN adapter safely? I hope someone has experience with this, it's been driving me nuts for a while.

See pic related for example. Thats the current Ryzen gen 2 family.
The "normal" part of it ranges from the 2300X to the 2700X, then there is a leap to the "Threadripper" part.

So far, AMD only announced the best CPUs of the "normal" part, they have yet to announce the lower end 3300-3600s, and the super high end threadrippers 3920-3990.

Anyway I'm imagining that most commonly used classes and functions already exist in some common header file, and if those are already optimized then my need for pointers would be minimal right? Or am I way off? I've only done high level languages before so in my head the stock header files are analagous to packages or libraries.

Your call, sometimes its better to push through and get little bit done, sometimes its better to rest and get a foothold for the next day. Consider popping an email to the lecturer you can't make it and see if they can record the lecture for you / give you the lecture slides.

I have a 4 year old computer. I doubt the specs matter but here they are: i74790k, gigabyte z97, 16gb ddr3, gtx970, win10.

Thing is about 2 years ago I had to remove the motherboard to fiddle with the I/O shield. It's possible the nobs that are supposed to suspend it briefly touched a part of the mobo they're not supposed to, I'm not entirely sure.

Ever since then the computer has had trouble starting up. It runs perfectly fine once it does start up, but after I shut it down it usually won't start up again. It doesn't even load the BIOS, the fans just keep spinning at full speed and USB-connected devices don't get power. I have to hold down the power button to shut it down for good and try again. Usually it works on the 2nd try, if not I have to powercycle the PSU after which it will always work. Like I said once started up it runs fine and I don't have any performance issues or crashes.

What could cause this? Motherboard? Bad memory sticks?

If it's getting that fucked that often, there's a serious risk of financial information getting stolen, not to mention data corruption. Go ahead and upgrade his windows now. You'll need to in a few months anyway, and 10 is actually a significant security improvement. Flashdrives shouldn't be allowed to autorun anymore, so unless he's actually running infected exes that shouldn't do it.

You must have never used infected flash drive in the last few years.
Malware no longer uses autorun trick, it hides the real files in a folder, and create a modified shortcut with the same name and without the shortcut arrow as well.
The only way to notice the difference is by checking the file size (useless with small sized files) or noticing the opening time is delayed.

I've done it on core 2. Main thing is you don't want to run 10 on a hard drive, although in 2019 it's really not fair to make anybody boot off a hard drive.

an ssd internally reserves space, space which you can't see. even if you fill it 100%, it will still have it's reserved space
that said, there are other reasons why it's not ideal to completely fill a disk, for any kind of disk (since this is a filesystem issue), fragmentation becomes a bigger issue as you fill the disk, on an ssd this can lead to performance loss and write amplification, on a hdd, more severe performance loss
on a hdd, filling the disk also leads to performance loss even when not fragmented, as the 'end' of the disk is slower than the 'start' (the logical start is at the outermost cylinder, where there's more space per revolution)
how full is too full depends on how large the files you store are, bigger average files demands bigger free space to minimize fragmentation

basically, content producers/distributors must either;
- make content suitable for any country (avoid anything that makes anyone unhappy), this is probably what you don't like seeing
- make alternate versions of content for specific countries, this is a good solution, but does require more effort than some producers are willing to do
- don't sell/provide access to specific content to specific countries, companies don't like to do this, because it means missing out on large groups of customers
