    I have now resolved this issue. It is weird because I'm certain I had previously installed some SHA2...

    Could it be because they have different SHA-2 updates versions ? And ,as far as I know, they were later included inside of the big all-in-one rollup packs.

  2. It does , it's included in the updates, at least someone got it to work. Sorry , don't use win 7 myself to confirm.

    "After installing today's patches. I found that the cipher suites, signature algorithms and elliptic curves on Windows 7 were updated. Document is here:

    Microsoft Security Bulletin MS14-066 - Critical

    1 - While I doubt that Ukraine's a sleeper cell for the FSB,

    2 - I do think Ukraine's membership into EU or NATO would just provoke Russia further. 

    3 - And Belarus is abandoning non-nuclear status, allowing Russia to set up nukes there. And Russia's foreign minister said that if World War III happens it will be nuclear, and also called for the United States to recall all American nukes based in Europe.


    1 - Any information to back this up ?

    2 - This pacify tactics had failed in the past and will fail now. Who's Russia to dictate us or any other country what to do ? It needs to know it's place (gas-station-country).

    3 - Scaremongering . Let's begin with removing of the US citizenship for his daughter . Just search for Lavrov's daughter and you will see Lavrov’s daughter does not even speak Russian.

    BTW , Lavrov is not even his real name . He chose this surname due to it's "glorious" sounding (means laurels in English) and to be closer to the russian folks in general by wearing a russian surname. His real surname was Chechen (?) or Middle-eastern, smth like that , can gurgle yourself. So this clown does not scare me and shouldn't scare you , please calm down . This "laurel guy" represents the whole country . I mean , the whole country is a total joke-fake . They are just an empty space without us . Their war tech are copies of the German WW2 ones and made from Chinese parts. Look at their oligarchs and their children .

    Why they don't live and study in Moscow or Ryzan ? If they "love" Russia so much , let them live there and seal the borders ! I'd vote for a requirement for every russian who wants to live in the West , every RU citizen must not love Russia to get a visa and cut all ties with it completely. Otherwise it's just an enemy among us and most propably a sleeper (or active) KGB agent .

    The problem is our greedy businessmen that took their money . But that is starting to change , you'll see. So please calm down , our nerve cells are priceless and be well.

    As for your self-made cages , just dig a deep shelter in your garden and place your items in a wooden box with several rounds of copper foil around it and ground with a piece of a big wire (1-2mm thickness) connected to a big metallic object (a piece of railway track , old metallic bath tub would do fine) which you would also have to hide under a thick layer of soil. This will prevent electrostatic discharges that came off of the blast. I see they forgot to mention it !

    Your Titan (black ? Sorry , I forgot) will survive. Would be good to remove the thermal pads and the paste and store the cooler apart (!) from the main board. The main board should be wrapped in aluminum foil , but don't scratch the chip !!! Place something soft on it.

    There is way too much propaganda and lies about this conflict to know what is real and what isn't. Even the so-called truths, the tactics used by Russia make no sense. I have severe doubts that Putin and/or all of the Russian military are incompetant so there must be some reason things are working out this way that we may never know.

    Yes, agree , something's really fishy about all of this. Mark my words , Ukraine is not the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is to strike the Western countries . I do respect the will of Ukrainians to fight for freedom , I'm terribly sorry for their children and cities ! Yet I still don't trust them. Did you notice how desperately they want to join the EU ? Shall we be accepting yet another KGB nest ? I mean , look at Prague , it's a well known KGB nest ! Now look at SBU (Ukrainian analogue of FSB) . It was created from the ashes of the soviet KGB . Also , notice they are quite kind to the captured russians. I'd say strangely kind. 

    Now look, Russia already got Belarus under full control as a puppet state . What we are seeing now is an attempt to re-create the USSR and strike the West this all of it's power ! Russia alone would be too weak to do that without the nukes . 

    They play their card , for sure ! I wouldn't be surprised if they had some sort of secret talks to push this ex(?) communist country to us as a "poor child of freedom" so the KGB spies would obtain no visa pass to freely roam the West .

    Now we could guess , is it only Russia behind this or China also ? And  a couple of examples from recent history . Ukrainians and all soviet citizens in their military got zero problems invading Afghanistan in 1979 and bomb the hell out them , like they did in Finland in 1939 , etc. They still speak their bloody (russian) language ! Why would they ?!?! It's like more than 32 years since no one forces them to learn it at schools ! Yet I still hear all young Ukrainans speak it freely in the videos . Why ?


    This is not an anti-Ukrainian statement . I demand the war stops immediately and the russians pay for all of the damages done . I respect Ukraine's independence , of course . Yet I don't want to see that country in the EU and NATO . I shall vote against it , like I did in the past. I , as a Dutch tax-payer, can only send them help . That's it. 


    All of the weapons we send there can and will be just easy trophies for the reds and used against us later ! Don't forget they got zero tech of their own . So they will surely steal our western tech , like they always do.

    Then a little later I saw on TV that Putin went totally nuts

    The US intelligence confirms what I've been saying , a nice compliment actually , thank you , the US intelligence.

    "Four American officials said there’s no intelligence saying that he is mentally unstable..." 

    Told ya. Just plain evil. 

    "The US has solid intelligence that Putin is frustrated and expressing unusual bursts of anger..."

    It's anger . Anger is not "totally nuts". 


  6. Constant update about the current state of things from Rob Lee , PhD student (warstudies), focused on Russians and their war tech.

    Videos and analysis about russian/belarussian war crimes and atrocities like cluster bombing of peaceful cities , thermobaric weapons usage results,

    russian war tech movements , etc. Also, he wrote he removes videos with bodies and POWs. So OK to watch under 18.

    No he's not , he is just an ordinary KGB worker and all of those is in his russian genes , also it was all part of the plan right from the very beggining and Europe is next if NATO will continue snot chewing any further.

    Russians have known for decades/centuries what Putin and every their leader is. They're "ashamed" now because the world is seeing their dirty laundry hanging in the wind. They're momentarily embarrassed, yet they remain defective, dishonest and dangerous people.

    OK , in the news our western media say "Putin has brutally invaded Ukraine" . And who is sitting in the tanks ? Who launches thermobaric weapons ? Who bombs the peaceful cities ?  Who all those hundreds of thousands small putin's minions are ? Yes , they are russians/soviets . And there's nothing that prevents them to refuse ! They got weapons in their hands for God's sake ! If you don’t , you are complicit in this invasion and you are a war criminal .

    There's nothing Russian lamenting can do to turn that back. And the world isn't interested in indulging "how upset" Russians are. Russians needed to stand up and oust Putin in 2000 when he flattened Grozny to the zero level with carpet bombings.  Exactly like they needed to oust Stalin in 1939 for the bloodiest war in Finland or occupation of Poland and Yeltsin for the bloody war in Chechnya . 

    I have no faith in them whatsoever. Remove Putin and they will "elect" a new one in a matter of minutes.

    Only total disarmament , then dividing Russia into several NATO controlled (UK, US , Belgium , Holland , France , etc.) zones with 100% external governance .

    Russia (along with Belarus, which is 100% helping russians with this yet another bloody war) should not be allowed to have military and/or weapons of any kind, except rubber sticks to calm down their peasants. 

    All we are seeing from some folks in Russia now is how "sorry" they are. Useless.

    according to microsoft, windows 7 at least support directx 12 in part:


    Well there's theory and there's real life ... what I mean is , are there any examples ?

    P.S. Not meant to offend anyone , just from my personal exp., seems like we have pretty aggressive users on here.

    Is there any other similar (but better) tool that can check disk temps with an interval ? 

    I'd suggest HWMonitor , even the free (non-extended) version has real time temperature , speed and capacity monitoring . No need to pay 50 Euro for the sentinel for your simple needs.

    And no installation requred !

    What I really hate about this "sentinel" , it is always outdated !

    You're welcome ! I'm glad you could sort it out . Yes , it's always falling behind . It's also not shownig Western Digital 6tb and up models. The last one it shows is 4tb 2014 models.

    is capped at 120 FPS in menu

    That's precisely what I'm talking about ! Why would a normal person want 120FPS in a game menu !? Now look at the GPU usage . It's 100% with max. clocks !!! Why ?!?! Who works in the IT/gaming industry these days ? 3rd graders ? Or perhaps Nvidia shills who purposely want to destroy your card ? 

    Now look at Spellforce (2003) . With GTX Titan 6GB it's about 5-7% load in the menu and about 89% during hard scenes , like when a pack of FireAngels is approaching your base. That's a perfect example of how a game should work ! And this is with 8K resolution . Yes , you read right . SpellForce supports 8K and any custom resolution you want. Those were the glorious days of IT/gaming industry.

  12. I think I already wrote , this "disable siganture enforcement" will not help you if you modded the .dll or .sys files in your driver . It only works if you mod the ini (added devices).

    I tried modding win 7 64 bit drivers . Change just one bit - error "can't load the driver" . Switched the enforcement OFF , still the same. But you're very welcome to try .

    But modding 32 bit drivers was a success. Of course you would need to search for the first driver for your device .Later one will be more bloated.

    HDDscan (which is a different tool)

    jaclaz , that's precisely what I'm talking about . It interferes with any other HDD scanning tools. If he still had the HDD sentinel installed (when he tried HDDscan) it could be the reason , so he needs to completely remove HDD sent. , clean the registry , reboot (important) and then try other tools . Why ? because HDD sentinel uses native windows loggers to perform it's activities (including USB and SATA HDD speed , for example). 

    Also , may want to check this entry :



    "Disable Performance Counters"=dword:00000000

    It's not tied to the temps though . And I'm still sure it's the famous sentinel's ancient bug .

    simply idling in Counterstrike: Global Offensive's menu screen

    Just so you know , there's no such thing as "idling in the menu" , in fact , it's much worse than a torture test .  You can try it youself , just launch (let's say sacred 2 , because you're on XP , right? So no DX11 for you) and you will see the card clocks  going higher and higher with every second . Now look at the frames , it could go to 300Fps and higher ! So I suggest to turn the sync ON . And even with Vsync ON it will still torture your card , and I advise against its . You might want to skip the menu and go play as fast as you can ! I once went to make a coffee and left Road Redemption (DX11 game) in the main menu . I can't even start to describe the heat that came out of the Black Titan . I guess it was 5-7 minutes tops.
