2023.05.28 09:26 WrongNinja i5 13600kf - bios configuration

Hello, recently I bought an i5 13600kf, B760M Steel Legend (I flashed the latest BIOS 4.07), DDR5 6000mhz 1.35v, and Fortis 5 dual fan cooling. I'm a bit confused about the BIOS configuration:
Should PL1 be equal to PL2?
If PL1=PL2=181W, during CinebenchR23 stress test, I get 4.8GHz for p-core and 3.8GHz for e-core. The score is around 22700-22900. However, in all the reviews, they mention that by default, p-core should be 5.1GHz and e-core should be 3.9GHz, with scores around 23700/24000. Is there something wrong with my processomotherboard?
I noticed that if I set PL1=PL2= at least 235W, then indeed, p-core reaches 5.1GHz and e-core reaches 3.9GHz, and CinebenchR23 scores around 23700-23900.
I tried experimenting with undervolting, but it doesn't work quite well on my B760M. I read that Intel blocked (limited?) undervolting, and it supposedly works with microcode 104, while mine is 115.
Setting vcore to fixed 1.2v significantly reduces performance in CinebenchR23. The best option seems to be Level 2 in CPU Core Voltage Compensation.
I also tried setting an offset of -100mv. During CinebenchR23, with PL1=PL2=265W and Base Freq Boost=180W, vcore dropped from 1.28v to 1.24v. The CPU Package Power result was 195W, and the temperatures were around 89 degrees. However, the performance was lowered because although p-core reached 5.1GHz, e-core dropped to around 3.8GHz.
I'll be completely honest: I haven't noticed any differences while gaming, maybe slight ones in Warzone 2 (built-in benchmark) when PL1=125W, PL2=181W compared to PL1=PL2=235W (around 2% difference in FPS).
Temperatures while gaming: Warzone 2 around 60-63 degrees, Cyberpunk around 70 degrees. Do you think it's worth replacing the cooling with a water cooling system like Navis F280? Or maybe a better air cooler? As for temperatures during the test (CinebenchR23), for the configuration with PL1=PL2=181W, it doesn't seem too bad at 76-79 degrees with CPU Package Power around 145-150. However, for PL1=PL2=235W, the processor gets quite hot, around 95-98 degrees, unless I lower it by -100mv (which has minimal impact on performance).

2023.05.28 09:26 DrinkingWithAFork windows 10 black screen long boot

I've been troubleshooting an old Toshiba laptop for a workmate for the last few hours and I'm unsuccessful in resolving the issue. The issue being after the windows 10 splash screen there is a minute or two long black screen before the log in screen appears, I've tried going into safe mode and disabling one of the graphics drivers which fixes the issue somewhat, but then my display is not at the correct resolution. Any tips?

Do Popcorn Kernels Go Bad?
Making homemade popcorn is a great way to enjoy a cozy night in or surprise your guests with a delicious snack. But how long can you store those kernels before they go bad? We'll dive into the shelf life of popcorn and explore what to do if you have unused kernels that are past their prime. By understanding when the kernels expire, we can all ensure fresh-tasting popcorn without any surprises on movie night.

Understanding the Shelf Life of Popcorn Kernels

Popcorn kernels can usually last up to a year when stored in a cool, dry place. They should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high temperatures, as this could cause them to go bad earlier than expected. The shelf life of already popped popcorn is much shorter – only two weeks if stored properly in an air-tight container.

Understanding the Shelf Life of Popcorn Kernels

Common Causes of Popcorn Kernel Going Bad

Popcorn kernels may go bad earlier than their expected shelf life due to several factors, including moisture and heat. Moisture can encourage mold growth on the kernels which will make them inedible. Heat can cause the popcorn to spoil faster by causing the kernels to dry out or break down too quickly. Additionally, if they are not stored properly, then they may be exposed to air and contaminants which can also lead to premature spoilage.

Tips to Prolong the Shelf Life of Popcorn Kernels

To keep your popcorn kernels fresh for as long as possible, it's important to store them in an airtight container. This will help protect them from moisture and other contaminants that can cause them to spoil. It is also important to store the kernels in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or any sources of heat. Additionally, be sure to inspect the popcorn before using it – if the kernels are discolored, musty-smelling, or have mold on them, then they should be discarded immediately.

What to Look for When Purchasing Popcorn Kernels?

When purchasing popcorn kernels, look for ones that are uniform in size and free from any signs of mold or discoloration. It's also important to check the expiration date – if it is expired, then the kernels should be discarded as they may not be safe to eat. Additionally, avoid purchasing pre-popped popcorn as this can go bad more quickly than kernels.

Benefits of Eating Freshly-Popped Popcorn

Eating freshly-popped popcorn is a much better option than eating pre-packaged, processed snacks. It's low in calories and contains no artificial ingredients or preservatives. Plus, it can be easily customized with your favorite seasonings to make a tasty snack that the whole family will enjoy. So stock up on popcorn kernels and pop away – just remember to store them properly so they stay fresh for as long as possible.

FAQ: Popcorn

Can popcorn seeds rot?

Discover the Best Way to Grow Pink Popcorn! Simply direct sow in late spring, but ensuring that the soil is warm enough is crucial. Protect your seeds from rot by treating them with fungicide.

Is it better to store popcorn kernels in the refrigerator?

Contrary to popular belief, refrigerators are not the ideal storage place for popcorn. The dry environment and excessively cold temperatures of your fridge can damage the moisture content of your kernels and even render them unpoppable. To avoid this, it's best to store your popcorn container in a dark and cool corner of your pantry. Keep your kernels fresh and ready to pop at any time with this simple tip.

What does moldy popcorn look like?

Did you know that microwave popcorn kernels have a short shelf life of just a few months? If you notice black or white spots on the kernels, it's best to avoid popping or eating them as they may be contaminated with mold. Stay safe and enjoy your popcorn without any worries.

Why is there black stuff on my popcorn?

Discover the truth about black specks in corn - they're just dark parts of the skin where the kernel connects to the cob. No need to worry.

How can you tell if unpopped popcorn is bad?

Detecting bad popcorn is easy with the right clues. Improperly sealed popcorn tends to get stale, affecting both taste and texture. You'll notice a reduced fluffiness and a softer, chewy texture rather than a satisfying crunch. Don't settle for subpar popcorn when you can have fresh and delicious snacks every time.

Conclusion: Do Popcorn Kernels Go Bad

Popcorn is a great snack to have on the go or when you're hosting movie night. But how long will those kernels last? Understanding the shelf life of popcorn can help you ensure fresh-tasting popcorn on movie night, without any unnecessary surprises. To make sure your kernels last as long as possible, store them in an airtight container in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or sources of heat. Additionally, it's important to check the expiration date and discard any popcorn that appears discolored, musty-smelling, or has mold on it. Keep these tips in mind so you can enjoy freshly-popped popcorn every time.

2023.05.28 09:23 filipinapearl I was bullied in High School by some of my Teachers

I might update with 2 more parts after this post.
I was bullied by my teachers in high school and still years later, I find it hard to have will power. If any of my friends see this, they will probably know that it’s me who wrote this. Even though this is from my side, I will still admit any faults I had made in the past.
I don’t blame them for my failures in life but my hate for them is eating me up even if more than a decade had passed. Hate is a strong word, I know, but after so much things that had happened, I never felt so humiliated and harassed in life like what they did to me — and to my friends. I never wanted to have hate in me any,ore and I want to be free.
This all happened in High School. My small group of friends who I am still in contact with know this story and how hateful I am to the characters to be mentioned.
I transferred school in my sophomore year. For the next two years, I thrived for academic excellence by devoting most of my after school hours to academic clubs that prepares us for contests, etc.
Everything was totally fine and drama free until we got to our senior year. With a new set of teachers, we were feeling how things would go. We had another drama/issue that happened that year. It’s related but not significant in this story.
You see, ROTC was about to be brought back into the curriculum again in those year and because of that, our High School implemented the start of the CAT program.
I joined the CAT and it was another activity that I can pursue after school. I see the good in joining the program to instill discipline and of-course rather than doing anything else, I find it as a way to also exercise because of the training.
At first, most of my friends in the inner circle was in the program. They (CAT seniors) know that I participate in academic trainings and they were very lenient to let me still join those and just catch up with them after math club.
Side note: some people think negatively of CAT/ROTC trainings as a threat to youth (in general) because of the h*zing stories. I understand them and for me also, I wouldn’t support any kind of abuse. Anyway, none of those happened during our CAT.
Unbeknownst to us chill and YOLO seniors, a group of faculty staff were against the return of the CAT program. They would express their distaste for such programs to us students and even to me, since I also interact with some of my teachers because of Math Club.
So the drama involving me started when we had our first general assembly after we became officers.
A few of us finished the whole program and graduated as officers, which meant we would lead the entire senior year students to drills and exercises.
I was assigned to a lower platoon and we didn’t have to do a lot. I had no issue with it.
All was fine until a guy from another class came in late for the GA.
He had an athletic build so I supposed he would fit in the higher class platoon but he was a little snobbish at that time to a lot of my co-officers. Since he was minutes late, which was intentional on his part, (our directions back then was to have a short break after the last class of the day to eat and then proceed to the gym for the GA). He was about 10-15 minutes late if I remember so it would suffice to have the same number for him to do pumpings. (Like squats then stand up). In my mind, it wouldn’t be an issue since he was an athlete, right? No. He would try to annoy the hell out of me. Like who is this guy? He slouched and was not doing it right. Yes, I felt disrespected and also he was disrespecting his platoon mates who arrived on time and was kind and respectful to one another as we did exercises. You would know they were trying their best. We’re talking about guys who were less athletic compared to him but was doing their best in their 5-10 reps of exercise. But this guy was on a whole other level. I cut him when he was slouching or loudly complaining and asked him to repeat the exercise so he could do at-least a few times correct.
I was a bit of an AHole for telling him that he might do it nonstop but I was just waiting for him to do a proper five or less since he had been slouching. He came through after so much tantrums and after that since we were in the lower ranks, we spent time in our platoon getting to know some of the seniors from other classes and share a bit of what we learned in the program as officers. Chill platoon.
I guess it was the next day or the other day that another thing happened.
We had our last class for the morning and were about to go have our lunch when our in a science Physics teacher slammed our home room door open and screamed “SINO NAGPAHIRAP SA ESTUDYANTE KO?!” Ha ha. The “athletic” guy who came late in the GA pointed at me (this was in front of my whole homeroom class in our room plus a whole lot of seniors in the hallway). “YUNG MATABA NA YUN, MAAM” (Yes, I was and still am overweight).
It might have been a funny story but I was singled out and a little bit harassed by that faculty staff who was the homeroom teacher of that guy. I kind of forgot how it was let go and resolved at that time but I wasn’t fully able to have it across that teacher that he was late and disrespectful.
From my understanding, there were other seniors from her homeroom class. (Those kids I referred to as less athletic who were giving their best in doing reps) And when they were asked, they didn’t say anything bad about the drills in our platoon. So I wasn’t reprimanded or anything but was just given a fair warning. I just asked if the guy can be removed from my platoon because it would be awkward plus I don’t want to deal with him again.
I didn’t know what it was before but compared to today, it can be called out as fat shaming and humiliation from what they did.
I guess he was moved to the higher class where they had to do a lot of exercises since he was quite athletic. I never crossed paths with the guy even though our home rooms are two doors from each other. In my mind, he caused a huge part in this. (To be continued…)

2023.05.28 09:23 Willing-Direction-80 My PC doesn't turn on when I connect an HDD through the SATA port

I currently have 3 storage units, a Kingston KC3000 M.2 (my main unit) a Kingston A400, and a Segate Barracuda HDD, the fact is that when I connect my HDD to the sata port of my motherboard (an ASUS ROG Strix B550-F Gaming WiFi II) Windows simply does not start, nor does it allow me to press a key to access the BIOS or the Boot menu, my only option is to cut off the power of the PC and disconnect the disk, both the disk and the motherboard are in good condition, any idea what may be causing the inconvenience or what can I do to fix it?

2023.05.28 09:22 maybeATrapIDKman Dortmund.. 😂

Dortmund.. 😂
So, I spoke a little in the Dortmund subreddit. Just simple criticism of their terrible fanbase, which is quick to abuse their own team and manager and blame Bayern for every problem they have instead of criticizing Dortmund and pushing Dortmund to fix their issues. I outlined what I see as some of my biggest issues with Dortmund, as well as come classic banter because I really do hate Dortmund. And they banned me from the subreddit. No reasoning, nothing. Keep in mind I did nothing wrong here. This just goes to show how Dortmund fans are salty, insufferable assholes.
