Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

For really important stuff (not my chess program btw) I usually have 3 backups, one on my NAS, one on an USB-SSD and a third one out of the house (not in the cloud because I don't trust that). I learnt my lesson many years ago, I was doing a programming job for some company, 3 months of work already...

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

The more you mess around with a hard-drive or file-system that is broken the more you will lose. The safest way is to connect your hard-drive to another computer and use software like 'GetDataBack' from Runtime Software or something similar. Often file recovery programs are able to recover deleted a...

Re: DTM50

It is all a bit off topic, but since we both use the same motherboard I want to make this remark. With versions of Windows 10 after Spectre mitigations overclocking my i7-6950X did not work anymore, even with the latest 1902 beta BIOS it didn't work. I could enter overclocks in the BIOS, no problem,...

Re: DTM50

It's also nice to have the vast majority stored on external drive. Much easier to copy back and forth instead of downloading every file individually. Sata speed is usually faster than download speed. And downloading one file at a time is a headache, although it has to be done once. I had to do so w...

Re: DTM50

Okey. I'm tempted to buy the My Book Duo 20TB HDD for 7-piece syzygy storage for backup. The problem is the noise level per reviews. But i think for 7-piece storage drive and for 7-piece adjudication (once cutechess supports it hopefully soon) the external drive will be fine as backup drives usuall...

Re: DTM50

h150i pro is the cooler i use. I don't use water-cooling but aircooling. I use the Noctua NH-D15 which on average is ~4 deg. C worse in most tests compared with your Corsair. The Noctua is quieter though (I can hardly hear it), and at 4GHz. with 10 cores at full (integer) load I still manage to kee...

Re: DTM50

For simple comparison it would be cool if you can do a simple test for me. Comparing speed of 5960X and 6950X What kind of speed can your 6950X output from this position. 10-cores (no hypertreading), tablebases off. 1q6/1r2k1p1/4pp1p/1P1b1P2/3Q4/7P/4B1P1/2R3K1 w Q - 0 1 Sedat benchmark position for...

Re: DTM50

I also have a 5960X on a X99 Deluxe, so I can try both. Unfortunately I have to do something else right now, I will run some tests tomorrow morning.

Re: DTM50

Joost Buijs: i'm using Asus X99 Deluxe II with i7-5960X overclocked to 4.5GHz. Should it be fine? I have the same motherboard with i7-6950X at 4.0 GHz. and 64 GB. RAM (DDR4 2400). According to Intel ARK the i7-5960X supports max. 64 GB DDR4 2133, so your 128 GB probably doesn't work, but you can al...

Re: DTM50

I have ordered 128 GB ram for 795 euros. Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2933MHz 128GB (CMK128GX4M8Z2933C16). So what kind of performance can i expect out of it, considering 128 GB ram costs half if not twice as much. Loading 6-men nalimov on 970 evo plus 2tb still impose a short delay of about 20 secon...
