I've become a regular at Level1Techs, and in so doing I've become someone who posts pictures of their food online.

Re: Apple Silicon in Macs

Yeah I work with a guy who uses a macbook even though most of the work is in .net core. The OS does a decent job of staying out of your way while still providing you with the tools you need to get things done which is probably why a lot of devs use it even if they're not working on Apple stuff.

FreeNAS is nifty. :P After doing some upgrades here in the home office I ditched the Synology box, and set up a FreeNAS box using(mostly) spare parts. The board has only four SATA ports, and since I planned on using a spare i3 6100 I didn't want to mess with trying to find a new one. For storage the...

Re: Apple Silicon in Macs

I guess being a 1.5 trillion dollar company makes it slightly easier to make a consumer product that's really just for software development on their own platform. :lol:

I dunno though, the macbooks seem to fill that role pretty well already.

Re: RyzenVoltage sticking at 1.0999. found the setting...

1.5v on a 3950X is not a stock voltage, so your first attempt should be to turn off whatever you turned on to make that happen.

Yeah that's true. I've heard video editing on the ipad actually works pretty well assuming you're using a codec that's supported in hardware. Obviously the hardware has to be good before choice of codec can make a difference. I'm not sure how much of a priority macOS really is for Apple in general, ...

Re: Apple Silicon in Macs

The CPU was never the problem when trying to virtualize macOS. It was the lack of GPU acceleration. Without hardware acceleration from the GPU you're going to have a hard time running many things people typically use Mac desktops to do unless you've overspecced the machine and are subjecting it to a...

Re: Ryzen build for Windows 7

That all looks fine to me.

The alternative is to build whatever machine you need whenever the old one finally does shuffle off, and then set up a windows7 virtual machine for the older games. That's what I would do, but I'm not sure on the details of that if you want to use windows as the host also.

Re: System Guide query on "The Hybrid"

No worries, and yeah if the CPU is the only thing in the loop, then a 280mm rad would be good for the i9 9900K also. If you've already got 120mm fans and you want to go the AIO route, then I'd be tempted to look for something with a 240 or 360mm radiator just so you can use them. Either of those wou...

Re: System Guide query on "The Hybrid"

I'd stick with the 280. That should fit in the top of the 750D. It can support 3x120 in the top but not 3x140, and a 280mm rad should be fine for a 3770K.

I don't know how familiar you are with epoxy, but if you're going to do a project involving a big epoxy pour, then you might want to check out John Malecki's channel on youtube. He does a lot of epoxy projects, and has a few videos specifically about tips for large epoxy pours. Here's a recent one, ...
