    The Happy thread!

    So after all my ranting of electrical issues it all sourced from a plug that was inserted but no locked in place under the dash. So it was slowly wiggling loose. So finally fixed and no electrical issues anymore. Probably didn't need a fuel pump or any of the other testing I did trying to track...

    Renoir APU Benchmarks Surface

    All that comes to mind with that statement is The GPU numbers are pretty disappointing, I thought these were supposed to have the next gen GPU stuff shoved in them but to have near identical numbers that doesn't seem to be the case.

    Raspberry Pi 4 now has 8GB RAM

    Pi4 wifi/bluetooth is standard and no longer requires usb adapters as it is.

    want a 28 core Raspberry Pi?

    lowfat beat me to it about the compute modules. At least the compute units are not impractically priced so this is still an interesting potential setup even if they are a generation behind... But fully populated at $35/compute unit and $200 for the board add some taxes and shipping and your...

    Any good modern city building games?

    City Skylines I'd relate more to Sim City 2000 and I really like this one. I like how you actually have to think about traffic, one ways, lanes etc. The steam workshop ads a whole extra bunch of layers with traffic management tools, custom buildings etc. BiffaPlaysGames if you look at some of...

    Last time i did brakes was on the Frontier. I actually bought the pads and rotors from ford. They have a omnicraft line that is common wear parts they run for other makes and models. I don't recall the exact price but it was a good value for 4 coated rotors and full set of pads. Anything...

    AMD CPU upgrade from Athlon 4x 640 3k to Phenom II x6 2.9g 1065T-95, maybe 3.4 later?

    I have been letdown by Dell for this exact same thing. I had a xenon board that I picked up for cheap. The chipset was supposed to be compatible with the CPUs I had from a computer that was constantly throwing RAID errors (suspected bad controller). Everything was supposed to be compatible but...

    Fruit beers are far from new, even apricot flavour specifically. "When Alley Kat opened in 1995, Aprikat was the first apricot ale in Alberta, and one of the first fruit beers in the province, making it the perfect invitation to get anyone hooked on craft!"...

    Ryzen 9 3900XT Has the HIGHEST Clock Speeds! 3600XT, 3800XT Specs Revealed!

    Watching this video and a couple others they seem to think that it is getting a jump to 2k but all of it is rumors really. Even the clock speeds could be wrong.

    Ryzen 9 3900XT Has the HIGHEST Clock Speeds! 3600XT, 3800XT Specs Revealed!

    4000Mhz memory while keeping 1:1 ratio brings up some extra opportunities to further make use of higher ram speeds.

    A Few Ryzen 3000 XT details

    A 3800XT @ a base of 4.2Ghz would be beyond the all-core clock I have on the 2700X and still have measurable headroom left. Edit: I had it as high as 4.2 on all cores but instability in some games which may not have actually been related to the CPU.

    Rants etc.....

    Yeah transmissions... I'm happy with automatic or manual. Even an automatic is way more robust than a CVT. Higher failure rates, some of them sealed so you can not even flush the fluid, and non-rebuildable being cheaper to outright replace them than to rebuild them. All in the name of marginal...

    AMD CPU upgrade from Athlon 4x 640 3k to Phenom II x6 2.9g 1065T-95, maybe 3.4 later?

    You put the battery back and the jumper back to where they were before trying to reboot right?

    Rants etc.....

    Its a 2004 as well and I have a few other things I need to address like rear sway bar end links and rear sway bar bushings but a little money spent on parts is still substantially cheaper than having a car payment again. Most of the work needed that has come up is usually within my abilities...
