Do you have to worry about the SSD overheating?

I went with the cm700 and the TP AC1900.  Took all of 10 minutes to set up.

Clearing the cache worked.

On a different note, I updated my network with parts from your networking guide.  It was a cinch.

Thanks again for all you do.

When I click the links on my mobile device, it takes me right back to the home page.

Networking / Upgrading network
« on: May 12, 2018, 09:07:29 AM »
So I want to upgrade my network when I move.  I want to get a new modem so I don't pay the rental fee.  I noticed  the networking guide here was last updated in September 2017.  The link to the cable modem is discontinued.  What cable modem do you recommend?  My internet speeds is going to be 400 Mbps and is with Suddenlink.

Secondly do you still recommend the routers you mentioned on there?

The 2700 seems like it would make a solid all around processor. I like that it is still weighing in at 65w.

I am really looking forward to seeing your review on these.

That is good to know because this story is starting to trickle into the financial world (I read it on Forbes).  What I found interesting was you could  dedicate your unused codes to mine crypto currency to offset the cost of the system.  It is an interesting idea.

I actually went to EVGA's website and got on their waiting list just to see how fast I could get a 1080ti.  It took about a day to get a notification that one was available for purchase.  Going to a card manufacturer may be an alternative solution if you need one.

CPUs, Motherboards, and Overclocking / Threadripper and crypto mining

Apparently now Threadripper can be used for crypto mining.  The article said that this is something that high end desktop users can do with their unused threads.  The economics of it is viable enough to pay for your processor and possibly your system within a year.  I doubt it will wipe out the Threadripper supply as you need a motherboard for each chip, but it may push people to higher end parts of they can recoup their costs.

Some news on the crypto front.  The market has crashed again with bitcoin losing well over 50%.  It is not necessarily good news on the gpu front because it is trading around $11000 as of this writing. Ethereum is sitting at $1000. 

It gets even worse. There are currently 1400 (yes 1400) crypto currencies out there.  Companies are creating cryptos because they found a way to use them.  Kodak created one to help the photography industry.  Goldman Sachs threw their weight behind cryptos.  Two blockchain etfs were added today.  And the biggest news is bitcoin is now traded on the futures.  Right now China and South Korea are trying to restrict it, but it they do not get on board, technologically speaking, they will be in the stone age.

The bottom line is blockchain is here to stay.  Right now it is mirroring the internet book in the 90s and I am sure there will be a bust, but when the dust settles, it will be part of you everyday life just like the internet is.

How serious is it?

Ha, ha, does anyone know?

There are two related flaws that were found, code-named Meltdown and Spectre. Meltdown affects only Intel and some ARM processors, and it seems easier to exploit. This is the one that the OS manufacturers are rushing to patch (Linux, Windows, Apple, etc.). It allows one application resident in memory to bore into another application, even if they are on separate virtualized systems. This isn't a serious threat for home users, but it was a huge problem for cloud servers, which is why Google, Amazon, and Microsoft were all over it right away.

Spectre affects all chips, including AMD, and seems harder to exploit, and perhaps harder to fix. It's much more technical, and so I haven't followed it that closely.

Overall, while I know home users are a bit panicked and rushing to download all the latest updates, I'm not particularly concerned. I'll let Microsoft push out the updates to all TBG's machines during the regularly-scheduled patches, rather than downloading them manually.

Thanks. It is good to have people like you to cut through the fluff and give us the stuff.  Now might be a good time to buy some Intel stock.

Well if I have to wait, I can accumulate enough cash to just to build a desktop. You really sold me on that Dell monitor in your stock build guide.  So I am kinda on the fence now.  Do I buy a laptop or wait a couple of months a build a true trading station?

Btw I hope you are still getting decent yields on your mining. Eth has been sitting comfortably above 300.
