  • I don’t see how Thunderbolt 3 is going to be of any benefit for an external drive with a single spinning hard drive inside. The drive is still going to have a SATA 3 interface on it and therefore ...
  • I thought for sure I could find this for you. After looking into it, however, this very issue seems to be a real cluster-you-know-what for desktop admins. There’s a potentially relevant group ...
  • It seems LTO has resolved most of the “wear and tear” issues with tape as long as you actually pay attention to your usage. The only exception being that temperature and humidity can still ...
  • IIRC SSDs need to periodically have electric current applied in order to maintain data in the flash memory cells. It’s been a while since I looked into this but when I did it wasn’t really much of ...
  • Superbiiz appears to have them in stock. https://www.superbiiz.com/query.php?s=Samsung+983ZET
  • Replied in PC Speakers
    I bet the speakers will sound even better if you put something from about 2002-2004 on your screen. :-)
  • I might suggest asking this question over in the Pro Digital Talk forum as there plenty of working professionals over there. Perhaps phrased somewhat more generally like “how do you educate ...
  • They stated there are multiple methods in existence for applying paste. Period. They never claimed there was a big difference between them or that the wrong one could result in disaster. It does if ...
  • Not sure if you're actually looking for checksums as well or you were just mentioning that as a tool example. If you are indeed looking for checksums then Windows has that built in as long as you ...
  • In addition to what others are saying, do not confuse mSATA (as mentioned in your subject line) with m.2 . They are two different form factors. mSATA has for all practical purposes become ...
  • A VM is of course a container, logically-speaking. But the term ‘container’ now has a very specific meaning in the IT world and you really need to accept that no matter how irritating it may be to ...
  • In the current IT vocabulary, containers do not equate to virtual machines. They are fundamentally different approaches to application isolation.
  • Why would you want to run a type 2 hypervisor and a VM with a full OS on lightweight hardware instead of using a container-based approach?
  • In your current environment is everything using IP addresses from the same IP subnet? In other words, do both of the computers and all of the printers end up with IP addresses where the first ...
  • Just to be sure you’re aware, there are some additional benefits that even a non-business user can take advantage of. The two I would consider most likely to be of use are the access to ...
  • I'm quite certain the RAM limit went away completely and it seems that even the CPU limit may be gone now. For all practical purposes, it seems that they've removed nearly all limitations from the ...
  • I agree with Simon and would just add on that the only additional hardware requirements would be specific to certain features or possibly even just options for specific features. For example, ...
  • Created discussion thread Graphite pads in lieu of thermal paste?
    I’ve recently come across some videos that mention using graphite based pads instead of thermal paste for the CPU-to-cooler interface. The specific product I’ve seen mentioned almost ubiquitously ...
  • Replied in Finally....
    Thank you for reporting this. I recall the first test of this feature I saw in a motherboard review (MSI?) showed that the cover was causing somewhat higher temperatures than running open air. ...
  • Some additional advice if you do this is to remember that AdobeRGB does not exceed sRGB equally in all colors and tonalities. Therefore, if you create test files such as Simon mentioned you might ...
