Hello, fellow 420channers.

I, once again, came to ask for a piece of advice.

I built a PC from brand new components, but my CPU fan is too loud and it sounds a little incosistent. This is my setup (no GPU involved):

MB Gigabyte B250M-D3H, s.1151, DDR4
CPU Intel Core i5-7500 (3,4 GHz, 6MB, LGA 1151) BOX, KabyLake
RAM Kingston 2x8GB DDR4 2400MHz CL17 SR x8 (KVR24N17S8K2/16)
HDD SSD Samsung 850 EVO, 2.5", 250GB, SATA III, Basic
CORSAIR VS550, 80+, 550W
NET GIGABYTE WB867D-I, PCI-E

I use the fan, which was in the CPU package. Perhaps the fan itself is shitty and this is causing the problem. However, I collected some data, while in BIOS and I would like to know whether these are normal.

Hello all.

Right now, I stay at a dorm, and at night, a lot of my peers here are constantly sapping up bandwidth; before I continue, I'm just going to say I don't want to do this *constantly*, but just at certain times when it starts becoming frustrating to have to do schoolwork.

I read about this program called KickThemOut, which runs off of Debian and also MacOS, neither of which I am currently running on my laptop. I want to use it, and create a partition on my HDD so I can boot into Debian and give this a shot. Besides Win32-Loader (image related), are there any othr techniques I can use to basically "force" certain IPs off the network without admin status?

can't you just run it in a VM? in virtualbox use bridged networking. that way the virtual machine uses the network card as if it were another node on the same network as your host computer.

Hey guys,

First off I'm sorry for posting about what must be a redundant subject.

I'm looking for a GOOD mechanical keyboard with keys that don't make all too much noise, relatively speaking.

The 'Logitech G810 Orion' looks like a pretty good one to me and has very positive reviews wherever I look.

Do you yourself own a mechanical keyboard? Which one would you recommend, if any?

Thanks a bunch in advance!

If it's gaming you want get a linear smooth switch type like Cherry reds or blacks.
If it's typing you want, get the tactile browns.

The non-tactile switches confer essentially no benefit for typing compared to a conventional keyboard, though some of them only require a very light press by comparison.
The non-tactile switches also do not have any kind of deadzone they need to be lifted past to re-actuate. You can just wiggle your finger near the actuation point and they'll spam fast as hell.

Use private trackers not public trackers. Also look into DC Hubs and Usenet.

As for VPNs they are only as good as much as you can trust them(VPN comparison chart: https://thatoneprivacysite.net/) and while many of them say they wont give out your info why would they risk their +1million revenue and not comply with what is in all likely hood a secret order that no one would really have any record of them giving out? Also add to that that most VPNs are configured through your OS and not through your router and there is another weak point. Most routers have very little in the way of security as well. Look up the FBI and their use of NITs, they infect your computer via your browser and then send out unique packets to identify you regardless of whether you are using a VPN or Tor or both. With Tor you also have to worry about your exit nodes

Something like openvpn(docs.openvpn.net/frequently-asked-questions/using-dd-wrt-with-openvpn-access-server/ ) softethervpn on a good DD WRT router with Qubes or Whonix as your OS, which use an isolated tor proxy, on a USB drive then your OS doesn't know its own IP address and IIRC both Quebs and Whonix spoof your MAC address. If something happens you can just get rid of the drive. TAILS has apparently been compromised(as has trucrypt) unfortunately as that is what I used to recommend. You also need to secure your disks too if you have anything on them. Something like Veracrypt is worth considering as their hidden volume feature will make it look like nothing is there with a couple of tricks.

Here are a couple of good privacy talks

https://michaelhorowitz.com/

https://hope.net/schedule.html#securingah%22

Honestly that is a little bit excessive just for snatching torrents especially if you just use private trackers. Most don't even feel the need to use a VPN with them but security is important anyway, It needs to be multilayered and is something that should be focused on regardless of whether you are doing something "illegal" or not. A good browser is important as well. I use a few but prefer qutebrowser. Definitely not FF, Edge or any google or microsoft product and definitely no Win10 or MacOS. I prefer Slackware for general …

Storing a laptop longterm by FrederickCodgepirk.pdr - Mon, 31 Jul 2017 13:32:32 EST ID:etGIlcPC No.121219 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I might leave for a long period of time, like at least one year. I am wondering:
Is it okay to store a laptop inside a cardboard box inside closet? Summers can get really hot here but only last like 4 months and I'm unsure whether this is a good idea or not.
Shall I leave the battery in or take it out? Does it make any difference? Also I don't want it exploding caused by heat and humidity. Also also is battery life going to worsen by not turning the laptop on for a long time, plugged or unplugged?
And most importantly, is HDD going to get fucked in anyway?
It's an old snsv EEE 1000 laptop that's been serving faithfully for more than 10 years without any problems whatsoever except changing thermal paste, I'm amazed how reliable this thing is but I don't want to kill it stuffing in a dark place.

Don't listen to anyone in this thread OP, you need to buy some desiccant and some vacuum sealed bags, you'll need to triple bag it in the vacuum sealed bags with the desiccant inside. Then you can place the laptop into a reinforced box that's a pretty snug fit making sure that there is some type of padding in there too like Styrofoam.

Seal it up and then keep it at 5°C +/- 1°C

take out the hard drive. that's really the only part that's valuable (unless you got a gaming laptop, in which case all the hardware is valuable)
turn it on again and see if you hear the noise. if yes, then it's just the fan. maybe it's really hot and they're kicking up. check the air outlets for dust and blow some compressed air if necessary.
if no, and you think it was the hard drive that was making that sound... well I hope you have backups. if you do have backups, then just get a new hard drive and reinstall your OS, and restore your data.

strangest thing ever... it was actually bios trying to boot usb first. last time i turned off the laptop with the usb stick plugged in, and unless there was a stick in, laptop would make some really scary noises, not sure where were they coming from but didn't sound like hdd or fan. all i had to do was plug in usb stick in while the laptop was booting and everything's fine after that.
i'm still going to proceed with long term storage, but just wanted to share this weird experience.

I'm trying to install windows xp on an old laptop (why xp? the laptop is 10 years old and licensed for xp.)

The install disc I had keeps asking for a license key, and rejects the one on the sticker on the bottom of the computer. So I torrented one, but it's in Russian (lucky I understand Russian, but I'd prefer English since I'm giving the computer to my wife) and fails when copying the files to .

Then I found that the first install disc I tried stopped booting. Jeez. I'm starting to remember why I went to Linux.

Can anyone suggest a good way to install some kind of windows XP? Is ReactOS good enough yet? I seem to remember there was some kind of cracked version which was like what Linux folks call a distro? Basically I have no idea what I'm doing.

Hey guys,

I don't have the money to buy a complete new build right now but my AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB keeps giving me crashes.

I was thinking of buying a used GPU in the meantime to at least have a stable computer, while I put money aside for a brand new PC.

Could someone recommend me a GPU that has similar performances and is on the cheap side?

Unfortunately for the smaller backers, GPD's not a great shipping center and the single orders are shipping slower than the big batches. Also, it seems like they're still fiddling with Ubuntu trying to get it working.

Seemed like they stopped shipping for a bit because a lot of the early shipped units had build-quality issues. I think they were trying to fix those, but it's hard to tell because they haven't been communicating great.

Sounds like the biggest flaw for the system (that isn't just a loose connection during the build) is the wifi. People are saying it's pretty crap. We'll see.
