Re: Can solder under IHS "go bad"? should I delid?

How are the volts? My brother's CPU was having a hard time keeping cool and I found the "Auto" setting for the Gigabyte board he has was volting the stock clocked CPU a solid 1.48v. Dropped it to 1.10v and the temps now don't even scratch 65c.

Hmm....how irritating. I just updated to High Sierra because it kept announcing me about the update. I did to stop it, and High Sierra does slow my Macbook air early 2015.

Re: Quick help with Java 9+

What gets me with Java is the constant changing of the guard. Looonnnngggg release times, then each release would add new things and break some old dependencies, ect. But were easy to fix (most of the time). Then Oracle buys java. Still long release times and many new features, but more broken stuff...

Re: Quick help with Java 9+

I was able to work around the issue by extracting the jar in the classpath. Now everything is happy. Not sure why it can not read the jar at runtime anymore, but whatever. It works after it has been jar-ed, but now I can compile/test without having to jar the project each time.

Re: Stupid and terrible software.

Mild annoyance, incremental updates. Updating an app here and instead of just downloading the most recent version and overwriting the needed files, the updater is going patch by patch.

Re: Program like Prime95, but for GPU?

One that comes to mind for the GPU would be FurMark. Not really a test program, but a stress program. And if there are any problems with the GPU, that program will find it. Most likely in the form of a driver crash or an occasional BSOD.

This is how I diagnosed a bad VRM on an old card.
