That's a serious looking GPU you've got there, I wish I had the physical room in my system for something like that!
Where are the other expansion slots though, does that motherboard not have any others?

almost every display card is dual slot design now

1 M.2 on right side under heatsink is used, and there is 1 PCIe x4 inside PCIe x16 slot, 2 PCIe x1 slots, and 1 M.2 slot.

What an epic rig!!!

Personally i would do a thought about an additional heatsync for the case (just in case of intensive scenarios)

I'm sure the case will be fitted with plenty of fans!
Thanks for the clarification about the expansion slots, still strange you can't see them in your picture though!
Cheers, Dave.

Been using this browser for a while recently have found two problems with using it.

 

1. After a browsing when close the Palemoon browser mod it will crash. Here are two Dr.mingw crash logs one from 11-May-2019 build and one from 24-Aug-2019 build. Dr.Mingw will produce two crash logs one immediate after the other is closed.

 

These are Palemoon SSE builds that I run on XP-SP3

Build 11-May-2019

[First Debug Window]
palemoon.exe caused an Access Violation at location 01928369 in module xul.dll Reading from location 00000000.

This bug is only present with Palemoon and seen no where else on the system.

 

 

2. With Newer Build 24-Aug-2019 (palemoon-27.9.6.win32-git-20190824-c106e1d83-xpmod-sse.7z) there is a further new issue that is not welcome at all. Something I don't need to see or be forced to view or accept via buttons. It's akin to the cookie button where we already have accepted the cookie since we cannot login with a cookie. I accepted NoScript or any other addon may affect speed when install them. Never needed to be told or reminded about that. More over not forced to view this fact forever, which won't happen will go back to older version and stay with it until it changes. If it doesn't so be it get a different browser.

Noscript might be making New Moon run slowly   [Disable NoScript]  [Ignore for now]  [Ignore permanently]   <<< This useless warning that we are forced to view always is invasion of my browser space and totally irreverent and unneeded. Don't make it further background bloat by only hiding it. This needs to be removed from the browser forever.

not possible to reproduce here. nm27 is still my daily browser for browsing sites that doesn't need goanna4 features, and from my testing, there is no crash at all.

Picture of the Noscript buttons that appeared with more recent NewMoon builds. These buttons appear a few seconds after NewMoon opens.

 

Reverted to test back backup that is a vanilla XP3 install same with that also. Maybe a noscript timebomb! but that doesn't seem something the NoScript developer would consider doing.

Will restor the vanilla XP3 fresh install backup test again. This time select the disable button to see if will disable. More over to see about:config changes by compare the NewMoon files.

 

The NewMoon crash when close NewMoon also happens for the same browsers as above with a test a vanilla fresh XP3 install restored from a backup image. That crash doesn't happen with every browser close but enough to notice, I guess makes these kind of crashes harder for developers to detect. That said If you have some PDB debug files for NewMoon SSE browser I could use those maybe Dr.Mingw will produce more detailed crash reports.

Re Goanna browser you mentioned I have seen this listed many times on your blog. But never choose as I always assumed it wouldn't work with the SSE CPU I have.

Have had a look at  http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?19,148500 there I have noticed the vital questions asked.

What OS and CPU requirements for the browser.

Many Windows OS versions old and new.

For any CPU that works with the many Windows OS versions old and new (MMX to newer CPUs)

 

With this information have KM76.2-Goanna-20190824.7z to try. For online video playback with lav filters that also listed (lav filters drop into the browser to use them). Like you one browser for normal browsing and one now hopefully for video if the pc is up to it.

alright found which commit added this: https://github.com/rmottola/Arctic-Fox/commit/f5cd276a60dcf30b9a169387879f2a4c7153e3eb

you may use [Alt]+[P] to add NoScript to ignore list to Addon Watcher so it won't ask again. also you may change browser.addon-watch.interval to -1 in about:config to disable Addon Watcher to measure slow addons.

PDB files are huge (~500MB) and it is hard to put them on server every time. do you still want them?

Is there a reason that you do NOT have Service Pack 3 (SP3) installed for your WIN XP OS ???

Added Later: @dencorso (message below) did explain it for me. To each, their own. :)

He needs SP3 and Mai 2014 Rollup explicitely otherwise endless problems. I must know since spent endless amount of time reviving old SSE-PC(this one) after capacitor-plague-problems stopped it and new ones occured. That was also my luck finding marvelous altered browsers like Palemoon 27 SSE.
