Hi, I need some advise from you guys, who know a little about hardware. I'm going to buy additional 8gb ram and and new graphic card - geforce 1050ti - but I wonder whether these components will fit and there will be no problem with e.g. cooling or supplying with electricity. In a file below I'll put my whole specification. Thanks in advance for all your support https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B92n7EVmnLupU1JKaEV0elFIRFk (Just download file and then double click, it will open in a browser in readable format)
Hey guys, I've been test driving a 64-bit release of Firefox for awhile now, I wanted to have a discussion about the stability of the 64-bit release vs the 32-bit one. For the most part, things have been smooth... I don't use that many extensions, but those I did in the past work flawlessly. Of course, Windows allocates more memory (probably around 1.5-2x as much) compared to the 32-bit version, but that's to be expected and I can't complain as I don't have a shortage of RAM. However, I do have complaints about the stability of the 64-bit version. I've been using Firefox for... sheesh, at least ten years and the only time I've had issues like this was back when version 3.x was released along with the horrible plugin-manager that ate up memory (due to a leak) like a beast. I signed up for the beta of 4.0 as soon as I could, and things have been good since then. Well, until now. Now I might have some unreasonable expectations, so here's a glimpse of my web-browsing: -Lately about 30 tabs open constantly -Close to 100 tabs constantly when I'm working on a project -A Firefox session usually lasts as long as my computer uptime, which can be between 7-14 days. -Average Youtube tabs: 5, Netflix tabs: 1, Pandora: 1. -I use Adblock Plus, with only a few sites whitelisted (like our forums). Now with this usage in the past, pages would still load snappy, videos would playback with no problem, and I could expect around 1.6-2gigs of RAM usage at the end of the week. Right now with 17 tabs open, Firefox is using 1.2gb of RAM which isn't a problem... but it's performing like it's hit a RAM ceiling. Videos buffering for awhile, pages not loading properly (usually a refresh will fix it), and sluggish general performance. Anyyyywayyys... TL;DR: IMO The 64-bit version of Firefox performs worse than the 32-bit version despite Windows allocating more resources. I'm curious whether any Firefox users here have noticed a difference in performance between the 32-bit and 64-bit releases. I know, I should probably just restart the browser more often... but it's sad IMO going from 14-days of stable uptime to restarting Firefox every day. Plus, more often than not I have information in forms that are partially filled-out, so I can't close the browser without losing that work. I'll probably be switching back to the default mainstream 32-bit release, but I am curious what others have to say before posting a bugzilla report.
Finally some news about the ddr4 rams, been waiting for this for a long time. We already sawG.Skills Ripjaws 4 modules listed on OCUK a couple of days ago, but now G.Skill has officially made the announcement, detailing all of the specifications and kit configurations. The DDR4 modules are meant to be used with the upcoming X99 platform and Haswell-E processors and will run at 1.2 V for those operating at or under 2800 MHz, while those operating at 3000 MHz or higher will run at 1.35 V. Officially, 1.35 V is outside of the DDR4 specifications, but anyone running memory at these speeds won't be too concerned with the extra power consumption. G.Skill's Ripjaws 4 modules will be available in frequencies ranging from 2133 MHz through 3200 MHz. They come with CL15 or CL16 timings, and DIMMs will be available in 4 GB and 8 GB variants. Mind you, you won't be able to buy individual DIMMs; kits will be available with capacities of 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB, although some higher-frequency memory won't have all the kit options. The 16 GB kits will consist of four 4 GB modules, the 32 GB kits of either eight 4 GB modules or four 8 GB modules, and the 64 GB kit will come with eight 8 GB modules. All of the kits should be available with red, black, and blue heatspreaders. No word on pricing or availability yet, though we do expect the entire platform, which includes the X99 motherboards and the Haswell-E CPUs, to hit shelves on August 29.
