    IIRC(too lazy for a quickl google) Net/Open*SD were forks of FreeBSD. One targetted at supporting more archs and the other "better" security.

    That said, personally I generally use *BSD for...

    MOST "BIOS"es have had this capability for quite some time now, but even MSI apparently until recently, strongly recommended creating a DOS flash bootable device(or *gasp* a floppy) and updating BIOS...

    Heh! I was just going to query about any SSD peculiarities!

    Maybe I'll try this on my next install... still trying to pick a distro though pretty much either Fedora or Arch(I think...).

    Well this was supposed to be edit2 but the 5m rule bit me on my posterior:

    As to opencl versions, I'd be pretty well satisfied that, that is likely driven by what their professional grade(gpgpu...

    There was also at one point in time, an OSS(IIRC) ARM->MIPS lib as well, when quite a few Chinese companies were using MIPS based SoCs.

    It's really just to try to get around the native code...

    surprisingly, looks like it to me. So I guess ATI is only if you need a spare space heater nowadays...

    I've used the Hyper Evo V(IIRC) with my 3930k and 4770 builds. Keeps the 3930k at 40C OCed mildly to c. 4.2GHz.

    Tried out a CLC (forget which ATM have to check later) on the fx-9590 build and...

    Hmmm... have to try that sometime, but personally I think that icewater baths still win out... should be generally better heat transfer between icewater & BEER!

    Considering that I paid c. $500 for a 3930k a few years, it's tempting for the 5960 barring the self destructing mobos...

    ...and I was thinking of a new build since ucenter has good store prices on these haswell-e. I guess that I'll wait year now like I did with LGA2011...

    Wow! You let the magic smoke out!

    Anyways, I've never had a spectacular failure like that. My stuff usually just quietly expires. More to the point though, I've never got a defective...

    The problem with ATI(AMD) is that for every bug that they(if they manage to truly fix it) is that they break 5 or 6 other things in the process...

    I for one would be happy(ecstatic?) to see them actually competing(or even coming a helluvalot closer in IPC) with Intel again.

    I just built an fx-9590(thanks to ucenter same price as 8350 which...

    Hell they USED to go so far back as the GF/GF2/etc. but recently it's looking like they're pulling back on that. Understandable in that case given the age of the cards and their capabilities. OTOH...

    Yep, just looked at the wikipedia article about this again and a linked benchmarking (3.6.2 kernel) and up to i7-3770k, i.e. 1-4 cores showed small gains, the xeon 12 core (I think that this was 12...

    Yep, given the way that nVidia INTENTIONALLY gimps gpgpu capabilities of their consumer cards I was incredibly surprised to see 780 TI perf so close to the R9 290X and exceeding even the more modest...
