    EVGA 1000 g+ Coil Whine Advice

    Paul, this is crazy loud whine though. It's so irritating. Much louder than whiney PSUs I've had in the past. Plus...when the whine drops out, my FPS drops out with it. Like power delivery dips out or something. IDK. PSUs aren't my bag. Any recommendations?

    EVGA 1000 g+ Coil Whine Advice

    [H[. I have a Corsair AX 1200 and a new EVGA 1000 g+. When I received my 2080ti, the Corsair would quite simply just shut down with it installed. I swapped over to an EVGA 1000 g+ and the issue stopped. However, the new EVGA power supply suffers from serious coil whine. Coil whine I can hear...

    Chinese Hackers Are Targeting U.S. Military Contractors

    I agree to a point. Hard to secure laptops and equipment still running Windows ME, XP, NT, etc.. That being said... If a contracting company can't afford to employ SECURE systems / equipment then WHY FFS are they being selected to work in DoD / Gov facilities in the first place. ALSO...

    RTX 2080 Ti FE Escapes Testing by Dying After 8 Hours @ [H]

    Kyle's not the only [H] with a failed 2080ti. Mine bit the dust earlier this week. Slated for an RMA. Haven't heard back from Green Team on shipping yet. :( Hopefully they hold off on shipping mine until they can figure out what the flying f*** is wrong with their product.

    Star Citizen is Free to Try for a Week Starting November 23

    Damn this thread blew up fast! Hopefully 3.3.5 is live when they take it f2p next week. It's really shaping up well. If you are even the slightest bit curious about it try it out... you've got nothing to lose. It's crazy what they have accomplished with it. The scale is impressive.

    China Unicom Hijacks the Internet...Again

    Not really. HTTP Pinning and Extended Validation is making headway on closing that window. Until it happens though.... If a Certificate Authority gets hijacked a threat actor could issue themselves a valid TLS cert by simply proving they own a given domain. BGP is a long, long way off from being...

    Evidence of Supermicro Infected Hardware Found at U.S. Telecom

    Caught it on the network as two devices in one! Malicious network comms! Boards have implanted ships! Oh my... So here's the thing. To look at these from a hardware implant level you have to do some very time consuming and expensive things: 1: This is the most important! ** THERE ARE NO...

    China Embedded Spy Chips On Supermicro Motherboards

    Yeah. Not to mention...What protocol was used to send data back? Was a protocol used to send the data back? Where did the data go? How was command and control facilitated? How did this pass perimeter monitoring for so many huge environments without flagging? There ARE ways to provide good...
