Over the last 16 months, as I've debated this issue around the world, every single time somebody has said to me, "I don't really worry about invasions of privacy because I don't have anything to hide.

" I always say the same thing to them. I get out a pen, I write down my email address. I say, "Here's my email address. What I want you to do when you get home is email me the passwords to all of your email accounts, not just the nice, respectable work one in your name, but all of them, because I want to be able to just troll through what it is you're doing online, read what I want to read and publish whatever I find interesting.

Rm_series_psu_to_corsair_link. Because the RM series uses an analog signal to send information about the fan speed and +12V rail’s load to the “C-Link” connector on the unit’s modular interface, an optional Corsair Digital Bridge is required in order to convert the analog signal to a digital signal. The Digital Bridge consists of two pieces. Connect the four pin connector to the “C-Link” port on the RM Series’ modular interface. The other half of the cable connects to the first with a 2-pin and 3-pin connector. After connecting the two parts of the C-Link cable, take the entire assembly and plug the other end into any available internal USB port.

Within Link, you should see both “RM PSU 12V A Current”, which is the measurement of the +12V load on the power supply, and “RM PSU Fan”, which is the speed the fan within the power supply is spinning. These can be logged under the “options” tab as well. The PSU fan speed can be graphed with the other fans in your system under the “graph” tab.

How to Build a PC - The Power Supply. Selecting Components: PSU Selecting a PSU is more than just knowing how much power you'll need to power your build, but also what features best suits your build and building preferences. There are also a number of features that you might want in a power supply like a Zero RPM mode that allows the PSU to be completely silent, Corsair Link compatibility that allows you to monitor your PSU, modularity that allows you to remove unused cables and different levels of efficiency that can save you money on your electric bill.

What's going to fit in my chassis? Most chassis are standard ATX form factor. And while there are also chassis made for micro ATX and mini ITX motherboards, they will typically take a standard ATX power supply as well. A standard ATX power supply always has a rear dimension of 150mm x 86mm: What can vary is the depth of the unit: So first thing's first: check to see how much room you have for a power supply. Non-modular, semi-modular or fully modular? How much power do I need? Desktop — Installation and integration of LGA1150 socket processors. Virtualizing storage for scale, resiliency, and efficiency - Building Windows 8. In this post, we are going to dive into a feature in the Windows 8 Developer Preview. Storage Spaces are going to dramatically improve how you manage large volumes of storage at home (and work). We’ve all tried the gamut of storage solutions—from JBOD arrays, to RAID boxes, or NAS boxes.

Many of us have been using Windows Home Server Drive Extender and have been hoping for an approach architected more closely as part of NTFS and integrated with Windows more directly. In building the Windows 8 storage improvements, we set out to do just that and developed Storage Spaces. Of course, the existing solutions you already use will continue to work fine in Windows 8, but we think you will appreciate this new feature and the flexible architecture.

By my own admission, I am a digital packrat. Windows 8 provides a new capability called Storage Spaces enabling just that. Organization of physical disks into storage pools, which can be easily expanded by simply adding disks. Pools and spaces - Rajeev. -Support- PassMark Software - CPU Benchmark Charts. Dave’s Monster Computer Speed Tests and Computer Recommendations for DSLR Editing. So Just How Fast is Dave’s Monster Editing Rig? This video will get a little technical, but don’t leave just yet, because I think this is one of my best videos and I think everyone will learn from this video and it might save you hundreds of dollars if you are looking to upgrade your computer in the future. So to recap very quickly, I built my own system with a i7-3930K CPU, 32G of 1600MHz RAM, GTX 680 4G of RAM GPU, and two SSD’s and two hard drives. See my parts list video and build for all the links to the products.

Since I am going to provide conclusions to my tests and recommendations I think it is very important you understand my expertise level. At bottom here is someone that knows very little about computers like my Mom, and at the top are computer genius at work at Adobe and design the software and work with companies like Nvidia and Intel on what to build. I know enough to say I am somewhere in the middle. Dave’s Monster Benchmark Tests & Tools Used Opening Premiere Pro OC screen 1. Build a powerful PC for Photoshop and other imaging applications. Summary: This article discusses the principles for building or buying a PC that offers excellent image processing performance specifically (i.e. focuses on Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One etc) - but note these PCs are also of course excellent for general purpose usage as well.

The PCs are not designed to be the bees knees for gaming etc, but specifically focus on those parts of the system most critical to a responsive, enjoyable and stable image making & editing experience. Note this is obviously a PC focussed article - if you want Mac info there is some great info here. (You'll pay at least twice the price for the same performance unfortunately).

That said, reading this is still useful as the same basic design holds true when selecting parts for your Mac as well. The links to directly purchase these PCs are: Image Science Value Image Editing System and Image Science Extreme Image Editing System Jump to: Introduction The Parts List & How Things Have Changed Motivation & Goals.

Build-Your-Own "Ultimate" Adobe Photoshop CS6 PC. Without a doubt, the single most-requested feature here on Hardware 2.0 in the 'Build-Your-Own PC' category is for an "Ultimate" Photoshop system. Now that Adobe has officially launched Photoshop CS6, it's time to take a look at this new release and prepare a hardware package that does it justice. It seems that the reason why people are interested in the hardware specifics for a PC with Photoshop is because it's a big, heavy application that, when pushed even modestly, can bring even a high-end system to its knees. Even small bottlenecks in performance can mean a lot of time spent twiddling your thumbs while the program chunters through a task.

There's no doubt that the better your hardware, the better your Photoshop experience will be. Well, here it is, a guide to building your "Ultimate" Photoshop CS6 system. Personally, I'm not much of a Photoshop user, and most of my "art" ends up looking like the 4chan Rage Guy, so please don't ask me any Photoshop-related questions!

Processor Storage. And Adobe Enable Brilliant Experiences. Sleeving a Fan with Expandable Sleeving. Inserting the Wires Now the wires can be inserted into the sleeving. If there is a spot where there is too much resistance, you can bunch up the sleeving and inch it along until it is in the right place. When you are done it should look like this: Don’t remove the electrical tape just yet, as we will now need to put the heatshrink tubing on to hold the sleeving in place. Push these on over the sleeving, with the first piece going closest to the fan. Now we need to shrink the tubing to fit properly. Finishing Up At this point you are ready to insert the pins back into the connector, but before you do, inspect them carefully. Using the drawing or photo you utilized in the first step, insert the wires back into the connector. It doesn’t hurt to double check your work by powering up the fan with a separate power source before plugging it in to your motherboard.

When everything is OK, you can re-install the fan onto your heatsink. Special thanks to Darksaber for his photographic assistance. Thermal Compound , cleaning the surface and spreading it out. - Intel - CPUs. The application of thermal compound to a CPU, GPU or chipset has to be done the correct way for the compound to provide an even transfer of heat. Too little will not transfer heat and too much will act as an insulator instead of a transfer of heat. Since the main purpose of the compound is to provide a heat transfer the way that it's intended then you have to fill all the scratches, pits and grooves so that there is a completely flat surface and no air pockets. Air pockets provide areas where the heat can intensify and spike instead of being transferred to the heat sink as a stable temp.

The methods, and there are many, of spreading the thermal compound is very important and the objective is to have a very thin coating of the compound. Almost transparent. 1. 2. 3. 4. Now since there are many ways to apply the compound, small pea sized amount, an X, a straight line, three straight lines, several dots , squiggly lines or a circle. Working with SSDs in Windows 7 and 8 | Like this article? We recommend  Moving to an SSD for Windows boot and operating system access makes more sense today than ever before. But you'll want to understand potential "gotchas," and how to size an SSD before making the switch! Follow Ed Tittel's guidelines and dig into the various optimization guides he notes to make the most of your SSD experience. The introduction of the solid state disk (SSD)—which replaces spinning platters and moving heads with speedy memory chips and fancy controllers—has brought big changes to the computing landscape.

In data centers, super-fast disk arrays make use of SSDs to deliver access to "big data" faster than ever. On desktop or workstation PCs, SSDs promise (and deliver) faster boot-ups and shutdowns, quicker access to applications, and zippier performance across the board while engaged at work or play. Of course, you do have to pay for this privilege. Using SSDs on the Windows Desktop Other Windows Considerations for SSD. Google Tips, Tricks & Hacks.
