Why do you keks still run Windows 10?

kill yoursel tinfoil retard, I still can run all my pirated games and programs including office
They want you to run pirated office, because you using office necessitates everyone else around you using office. It's a program that corrupts files so they break with other programs (lol MS-ODF).

The games, though, they might go bye-bye at some point.
>Microsoft doesn't want you to use windows in certain ways
maybe but they're not stopping me, and if they tried to they'd not get get away with it without criticism.

can you explain, in logical terms, how speccy is somehow upsetting to Microsoft and why they would nefariously decide to remove it?
I'm willing to bet you can't without resorting to tin foil hatting based on nothing but conjecture and paranoia, as you've already been doing.

>I don't understand how it works therefore I'm afraid of it
pretty much the underlying theme in this thread.

Is anyone getting the HTC Vive this December?
What can these things even be used for?
are they even going to do a limited release? They haven't said a peep about the consumer version.

Going to wait on the cv1, at least I have an idea what to expect for their final version.

Primary reason I am leaning towards cv1 is the their motion controllers, much more compact with gesture recognition even if limited to pointing and thumbs up.

If consumer vive introduces 3D haptics similar to tactical haptics or eye tracking then I will consider it instead.
Somehow I doubt you'd really be able to buy a Vive in December.

is it safe to change the thermal paste on a laptop cpu, specifically a slightly old probook, and would it be worthwhile at this point since performance/temps are regular

>Also how to package a loose CPU to prevent damage?
Depends. If it's for an LGA socket, wrapping it in anti-static bubble like you would with anything else is just fine.
Not so much if it has pins, though.

I want to be able to power a 12v car screen with a 5v 1a battery bank and I'm trying to figure if this will provide the current I need for this thing to work.
Oh oops I was looking at the wrong number in your upside down picture, I saw 150W and couldn't be fucked to find anything else because upside down.
Any graphics card with a single 6 pin connector should be fine if that's all your PSU has.

But to answer your question:
>Would I break anything if I put in something too demanding?
No, it just either won't run at all or it'll run at lower performance than it's supposed to.
Ah yeah sorry bout that, took it at a weird angle and must have tripped the rotation.

PS: Here are how how the solar off-grid household (or server room backup power or whatever) batteries might look.

You get a bunch of these and the other electronics required for charging / discharging them, and you can run 110V / 240V off them for a while. Not very portable, though.

Also, actually if you want more lifespan out of these more long-lived LiFePO4 batteries, you'll be charging them to 70-80% of capacity or so only. They decay slower then, making them more economical. So ... the battery installation would be even heavier than on the spec sheet. Doesn't matter much in a house, but you won't be carrying these around.

With the Lithiums that are in consumer electronics battery packs & smartphones and stuff, you kinda just accept that it's the shorter-lived / higher power to weight - ratio lithium technology that will be more expensive over time, and roll with it. It will likely be time for a replacement in 4-7 years or so; shit happens, better than carrying twice the weight.

Can't match the generator for something with a reasonable weight and capacity (and even cost, with not very intensive use) anyways, if it still needs to be portable and household power.
Whats your phone anon? mine is huawei x1, also reverse charges.

4K may as well be literally designed for Crossfire 390/Xs.

3.5 GB chokes at 4K in some games and the benchmarks tell.

Look at specific games in the review and you'll really see how bad it can be.

So these things perform as advertised for like 30 minutes then the performance gradually dips to some shit level (and is temporarily raised again by TRIM) and never performs at its peak again.

Isn't it false advertising for them to advertise the top speeds?
>blaming samsung hardware for piss poor operating system performance. next time do a clean install and disable the page file rather than copying over your old corrupted os.
Uninstall Windows. Install Linux.

That will almost certainly solve your issue here.
