Does that mean CCleaner has been totally nuked or is it still trustworthy?

Quick question:
I have the feeling that my old 8GB of DDR3 RAM won't quite cut it anymore in the current/upcoming hardware situation.

My Asus Z-79-P isn't fit for DDR4 though, and I don't quite want to set up my PC anew anytime soon. Any recommendations for a DDR3 brand? Plan was 2x8GB.

Of course, this ignores the non-constant cross-sectional first moment of area across the chest as well as non-constant material properties of the boob; it would be difficult to perform a more detailed analysis (as in, I'd have to have a shape function AND I'd need to derive a function for elastic modulus as a function of lateral breast coordinate) but whatever. It's 2am and I'm lazy.


I always believed science should be very hands on experience.

You should also answer this question I had posed in that thread: Would you be willing to pay your surgeon more if he was going to use a chainsaw for the opening incision of surgery? Clearly using a chainsaw isn't truly suited for surgery but that doesn't really matter. If he's "skilled" enough to be able to use the wrong tools of the trade, he should be rewarded for that skill right?

I think if you download the newest one from the official site, you should be fine. It wasn't the real publishers of CCleaner who did naughties, it was some hackers who apparently managed to infect it at some point

@Zormau
I think G.Skill is appreciated brand, but personally I have just gone with whatever is cheaper with reasonable specs. I don't believe it affects much which brand you choose if they share similar latencies and clockrates. Not sure if you are getting whole 2x8GB kit new or adding another 8GB, but if latter then you should probably get same-ish brand/clockrate/latency.

Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included

Thanks. My current 2x4GB are G.Skill 1600 I think, but I've had problems with them once or twice in the past (probably due to old age...) so I think I'll just get two new 8GB sticks with maybe 2133 or 2400MHz and be done with it. Should be compatible with my Z-97P (Z97-P | Motherboards | ASUS Global)

The payload is apparently looking pretty characteristic of some (possibly governmental) hacker groups. Honestly a pretty smart target given how often CCleaner ended up on semi-protected machines. My workpace IT guy puts it on all images for eg. Something I would never do mind but there you have it.

I think it's generally indicative that Avast just does not have their shit together though. If they cannot protect their own assets, how are they going to protect me?

The brand of RAM sticks really doesn't matter.

Only a handful of companies are RAM manufacturers, the rest are just assemblers (they buy the modules and mount them to PCB).

I generally just end up buying Crucial/Micron most of the time.

G.skills does have a well deserved reputation of putting together nice modules though.

I'm long overdue for an upgrade... Suggestions?

I'm currently using a PS4 slim, and even though I just bought it in March, by September I'd already used up all my memory space so there's a backlog of games to get that I should be playing already (Uncharted, FIFA, NHL), and then Battlefront drops next month and the first half of 2018 should bring us Red Dead and Ace Combat... I need to order a new hard drive this week, but I also want some increased speed so BF1 stops taking 90+ seconds to load every map.

After doing some research, I'm thinking about something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FireCuda-…GK965VQMW9JWG4Q

Or should I just trade in my Slim for a Pro? Any advice is appreciated.

I bought that one (a lower storage version) and no complaints so far.

I have no experience with the pro but I wouldn't say it's worth it unless you have a super high resolution TV.

I find majority of the complaints I hear about this game somehow never appear in my games.

@botafogo4life

I've merged your thread with the main Computer thread since while you're talking about a PS4, the hardware you're looking at is PC hardware anyways. I really have no other place to put the topic.

Anyways, those Firecuda drives are a pretty standard upgrade for PS4's from what I understand, looking at the reviews, it seems like Seagate have solved some of their reliability problems from the Barracuda line, so it's probably a fairly safe bet. Keep in mind that a hybrid drive will only help launch a game quickly if it was the last game you played, as that is the info that is stored in flash memory. If you find yourself switching games often, it may not be very much benefit.
