re: Older PC suddenly CPU overheating - ILikeLSUToo
[quote]I am concerned now about the power supply and it's relation to generating heat in the CPU. Could a failing PS generate CPU heat? Or is it more likely the CPU itself?[/quote] I cannot think of a scenario in which the PSU would cause the CPU to overheat. Too many things in between that regul...

re: Transcend 512 GB SSD for $139 - ILikeLSUToo
I understand the Samsung preference (despite the 840/Evo blunder), but Intel's SSDs are basically generic nowadays, no longer using in-house controller chips. I think they're all Sandforce now, with some Marvells possibly still out there. Also, A-Data is an often overlooked but good brand, usuall...

re: Why do potheads think they are so deep? - ILikeLSUToo
Weed enhances one's perception of everything, not necessarily in a positive way (if you're depressed with low self-esteem, there's a good chance weed will make you feel like an even bigger POS). If the girl already thought she was a deep thinker or otherwise had an inflated ego, then her thoughts wh...

re: Older PC suddenly CPU overheating - ILikeLSUToo
[quote]Replaced CU heatsink/fan - no help Replaced it again with another bigger one - no help [/quote] This is most concerning. Either an improper installation of the coolers, or something virus-like is hogging CPU resources and jacking up voltage (unlikely). Or it's not the CPU causing the ...

re: Buying a new computer, need advice. - ILikeLSUToo
[quote]To me it makes more sense to blow your budget up front with as much RAM as you can get[/quote] This advice only applies if you're buying a design with soldered modules. Otherwise, get what you need now and upgrade later. DIMMs are not hard to find, even DDR1. Budget should always focus on ...

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - ILikeLSUToo
It'll launch non-steam games. Can't get it to launch steam games at all, even if I say "Hey Cortana, launch witcher3.exe." It's definitely a Steam problem more than a Windows problem. However they're installed, Windows doesn't seem to acknowledge them as applications, nor their shortcuts as shortcut...

re: Why is there such a dry period from June to September in games - ILikeLSUToo
Maybe the higher sales figures is a product of the publishers' own doing. They all want the holiday release, some get pushed back or delayed to early spring. By then people are done playing their fall/winter games, so the spring games sell well too, and then more publishers go after that spring rev...

It's really difficult to root for AMD when they continue to spend money on Huddy's whiny anti-gameworks crusade.
