Myth: AMD GPUs perform better with AMD CPUs LOL

The new AMD GPUs do (supposedly) work better with AMD CPUs. Well, he was right when he said it, I guess.
2:15 AMD: Makes it so the 6000 line now draws more performance from the cpu. Jay: am I a joke to you?
Destiny Welds
Jay i think you'll need to revisit pairing an amd gpu with an amd cpu making the system run better once the 5th gen cpus and rdna2 gpus are released with rage mode and S.A.M.

I just this past week had to rebuild my pc. It pretty much ran 24/7 for the last 9+ years. The things that kill electronics is poor frequency regulation and current spikes in the electric lines to your house. I run a Furman power conditioner / surge protector for the computer TV and surround / video system. I probably did not have to upgrade but I had to face up to win7 being phased out and that a core i7 920 is low on the totem pole these days. The computer actually did not die the cpu water block got partially clogged up with gunk finally and the processor was getting hot. As for heating up a room that all depends on the size of the room. If you are in a living room open to air flow from other rooms and people movement thats a non issue. If you have it in a room the size of a closet then yes..

I know a myth. Going to school and learning computers will make it so you can fix them. I bought a computer shop from a guy who did just that, and I watched him delete win.com while calling it a virus. He was only half right, and I had to get that virus from another computer to get it running again. 7:20 This can be faults for Linux, because the drives can be set to turned off while not in use. For some reason Microsoft can't keep their paws off your drive, but the biggest offender of running the drives is your anti-virus programs. Getting rid of the ant-virus software, on Windoze, will get rid of 90% of the drive action. Linux can get it down to zero, if you don't use it, and then shut down until accessed. I have 3 computers from 2013 and (2) 2014 that have all good parts still in them except 1 fan that was replaced. This is impart from shutting down the drives when not in use, and the CPUs are doing just fine for the reasons Jay mentioned. Windoze didn't make it thou, for example, one died due to Wana-cry. Now 2 run Linux and one runs Windoze 10. I also run a computer full time, which is monitoring security cameras.

I have had an HP PC that i use as my PLEX Server on for like 3-4 years. It's no powerhouse, it's not super impressive, but it's done the job without being turned off for 3-4 years. I only use this PC to run PLEX. It does nothing else.

The PSU myth, can you please say that to my family. Believing firmly, that if you use a psu, that the psu constantly uses the max amount of power the whole time it is on. *facepalm* I'm using a 1000 watt psu, and they firmly believe, that my entire system uses that much power the whole time it is on. When in reality I'm using less than half of that from all my components, even under full load. Like 477 watt. The system was initially going to be bigger, and the psu was the first part I got, but later turned out far smaller, 1 gpu, 2 hdd, 1 ssd, amd ryzen cpu and air cooling due to pricing changing as much as it did before I bought my parts. Still, I don't regret getting the giant psu, but damn, believing that a psu runs the max capacity the whole time, absolutely ludicrous. Can't get that into their heads...

More RAM actually does make your computer run faster. The most tangible difference is in minimum FPS in games, which are especially important in Virtual Reality. The FPS is supposed to be locked to a certain value eg. 90hz or 120hz. In VR the average and max FPS matter little compared to min FPS. And the bottle neck in min FPS mostly lies somewhere between RAM/CPU speed followed by RAM size. The benefits from RAM size extend beyond the point of full utilization of available RAM ie. 32GB RAM is indeed faster than 16GB even if you only ever fill up say 10GB of your RAM.

idk why companies need to pay someone else to destroy their hard drives, waste of money & a potential way someone could steal them if I ever saw one. Just use a tool like DBAN & do sometime crazy like 5 passes on the hard drive, then shoot the thing a few times & maybe burn it with gasoline if your feeling up to it. There, in about 20 min of work (plugging in a dban usb, let it run, taking the hard drive out, shooting it, burning it, garbage) you've completely destroyed the data on your hard drive & it was all free & fun.

Actually, AMD can make use of proprietary protocols to take advantage of the fact that they know the major components of their system. Designs to exploit that kind of knowledge existed in sgi machines(proprietary bus line if i remember correctly). Just make a unified memory which can outperform the bus in median cases already.

destroy the hd? NO. you can flat out use programs out there to re-write every single point of data on a HD and clean the drive completely to all values = 0. physically 100% of the drive has been re-written over. and they are free and public.

Its not really that big of an issue nowadays. By default, I believe that W10 will enter into sleep mode if you push the power button while it is turned on. You could set it to shut down upon pushing the power button. What I don't recommend, except as a last resort, is to push and hold the power button. If you do it once, its not likely anything bad will happen. But it can cause data corruption which is not good.

Well, the RAM point isn't exactly false. In your environment people work with proper amount of RAM, meaning that 16GB of RAM is probably the normal situation there. Especially in the budget office scene it's still 4GB the usual. Windows does scale with the amount of memory available and prepares different stuff available in the memory when more RAM is available. So, yes, in those situations there's a difference in performance between the 4GB office low end pc and having 8GB+. Of course, from a point onwards that's not happening anymore. I'd say it's not happening between 16GB and 32GB+, except if you need more for workloads of course, then more is better, of course, since RAM is way faster than the page file on your SSD, not to mention your HDD (yes, people still use such as OS disk....). So, the RAM point is absolutely legit, you're just not in the environment where it is true.

Now see, Jay you fucked up a bit here. Back in the day, AMD cpus DID make AMD GPUs run faster because the integrated graphics on the chip could run in crossfire with your discrete GPU and would indeed run games at like 10% or even higher frame rates than you could with Intel because it didn't have said feature. Fuckin up, Jay.

7:48 Myth: Set your pagefile to two times the size of your RAM So someone with 128GB should have a 256GB pagefile? ;) Set yourself a target amount and make the physical and virtual memory add up to that. If you've got enough physical RAM in there, feel free to disable the pagefile, unless you run crappy Adobe software that doesn't like having none.

So the clearing off data is a bit .misleading. They nolonger just trash the drives. Depending on the level of classification there are 3 standard DOD 1 single write single delete. The number stands for the number of passes. 1 deletesalk data then writes all ones. The other two levels are 7 and 13. DoJ recommendations is 3 passes. WITH 3 passes you need CIAlevel technology not available to the consumer markets. SSDs can not e recovered after a single pass.

The powerup failure tendency is probably because of the capacitors. This has a breathtakingly long history in electronics, especially during the plague years.

I would like to see the formula that says that the water cooler creates more heat. It dissipates heat from the wattage of the CPU. An air cooled system is less effective than the water cooled, so more energy is needed to lower the cpu temperature. Also more heat is stored and released over time in a water cooled system as it usually has more mass, that in turn helps it being more efficient as it can release stored heat when the cpu isn't working up additional heat. Another benefit from this is also less heat spikes. So conservation of energy is the answer.

Cable management myth is a holdover from the old ide/floppy ribbon cables. Back when cases were so restrictive that there was almost no airflow in the first place... If you didn't try to tuck them our if the way what little flow you had was blocked... Remember when 2 ribbon cables would block the entire vent openings?

The reason electronic components fail most often during power up is due to the fact that your components draw their peak amperage during power up. As these components wear they do one of 2 things, fail to appropriately draw the correct amperage or wattage or have amperage/wattage tolerance reduced below the designed draw. The types of component failures and degradation can run for months if they are already powered, but will fail open the moment you try to power cycle them.
