  1. Oh, so their method is just to average out user-reported performance or something? Yeah, that sounds like a pretty bad method.
  2. Hmmm. If I google "bed sheets" some of the first results are marked as ads, but if I google "compare GPUs" then none of them are labeled as ads. I know search optimization is a thing, but if Google accepts money for higher rankings without marking them as ads, that's just deceptive. Dishonest.
  3. Really? It's always near the top in google searches on the subject. When I google "compare GPU" the first result I get is userbenchmark.
  4. It shows up basically at the top of the google rankings a lot of times; I've googled "compare GPUs" and had it pop up at the top of the list, so they get a lot of traffic. It sounds like they're just biased as hell.
  5. I ran across people saying it on Reddit, somebody linked this video. I'm hearing a lot of people say they've even changed their scoring system to bias it towards single core performance, and this started once AMD started beating Intel in multi-core performance.
  6. Alright, I'll give it a shot. Why would I want to set the latency to 16 instead of 14 though? Is that required for the higher frequencies? I know that RAM latency has risen along with frequency.
  7. 97000% tested, no errors. Well, hopefully reconfiguring the RAM to 2400 resolved the BSOD issue, although I don't know why it would - but I haven't had a BSOD since I did it.
  8. I'm also getting occasional BSODs, and I'm not sure why. I already unplugged the whole damn thing, took the RAM sticks out, and reseated them from scratch. Nothing else could really be the issue; I only changed the RAM. I'm close to putting the old stuff back in to see if it persists.
  9. Oh crap, so I have to *make* it run at 2400? Christ, I never did that with the preceding RAM either. Fucking hell. Alright thanks guys, I'll check it when I get home. I posted some screenshots of my BIOS readouts; do they look like it's running at 2400 or 2133?
  10. Could use some education from anybody who knows, especially @Folterknecht, because I'm super-confused. ----------------------------------------------------------- Recently moved from 16 GB to 32 GB, got this DDR4-2400 C14 from Corsair: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0134EU9YA?ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details&th=1\ This is what I had before: DDR4-2400 C16 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/c8rcCJ/geil-memory-gpr416gb2400c16dc Now, this is what I'm seeing in BIOS: https://imgur.com/a/KR6GEnY What I got was listed as DDR4-2400 C14 - there was C16 available, but I figured i
  11. I'd say it's mind-blowing how bad some of these huge companies are at building desktops, but a lot of it is intentional. Gotta impede people upgrading the shit they buy from you, that way they just get frustrated and replace the whole thing. I think their goal is to laptopify the desktop. Ideally turn the whole thing into a black box the customer won't touch and can't fix or upgrade.
  12. I'm playing Elite Dangerous and DCS with it. I'll never go back to pancake mode. At this point, for any flight sim, monitors are for getting screenshots; VR is for actually playing. The graphical fidelity isn't quite the equal of the monitor, but actually sitting in your cockpit, being able to turn your head and look off to the side...the immersion factor is amazing. It's also just superior for flying or driving. If you can play WoT through your router, you should do fine with Elite Dangerous; it's peer to peer for some reason. But I agree: VR is just game-changing f
  13. Just wait until you're 40 and see the shit you said when you were 22... You mean all that hard work I did to climb the summit of mediocrity is worth nothing now? I'm not giving back my set of steak knives...
  14. Ah yes. The key there is you have to fly a large ship out to Hutton and exchange it for the free Anaconda. I always tell the noobs to buy a stock Type 7 and fly it out there to exchange.
  15. Oh man, I avoid 100k LS trips like the plague. Has anybody told you you ought to make the trip to Hutton Orbital yet? Avoid it. It's like an hour trip to get there, just from the in-system flight.
  16. The very first Guardian module you should unlock is the Guardian FSD booster. First engineer of course is Felicity. I have an AspX that has a jump range over 60 LY. Makes getting around a lot easier.
  17. To be honest, Frontier has never gotten balance right. The payouts don't scale with risk and skill requirements, and people get locked into loops of dull gameplay (laser mining, Sothis passenger runs) where you do the same thing over and over and over again to get more money because all there is to do to give some variety and spice to the game is get new ships and kit them out differently. So they're faced with the choices of (1) have money flow slowly and make people grind forever and a day to get the ships they want, or (2) have money flow slowly enough to be dull but still quickly eno
  18. Yeah, problem is that it sounds like (I'm hearing things second-hand) that they're aiming to make all activities generate money equally, which seems like an odd reward structure in a game; it really leaves little reward for skill if top-tier laser mining in a Cutter or Type 9 generates the same $/hour as Thargoid-hunting and other high risk activities. But I agree that boredom is a factor. I'm still only at like 1.4 billion in cash, I think, despite having a fully kitted Cutter devoted to laser mining, because it takes me a couple hours to fill all 512 tons of cargo space, and frankly, i
  19. To be honest, if you're flying something as small as a Cobra, it's gonna be more time-efficient to just sell to a carrier in the system you're mining in; they usually buy for around 715,000 per ton of painite. Then you can restock on limpets and get right back into the ring. This is true. I mean, it's kinda absurd that just now in 2020 Frontier is coming around to the idea that payouts should be properly scaled to the risk involved in the activity and the skill required.
