Some Core I7 5960X + X99 Motherboards Mysteriously Burning Up 102

An anonymous reader writes "Intel's Haswell-E Eight-Core CPU and X99 motherboards just debuted but it looks like there may be some early adoption troubles leading to the new, ultra-expensive X99 motherboards and processors burning up. Phoronix first ran a story about their X99 motherboard having a small flame and smoke when powering up for the first time and then Legit Reviews also ran an article about their motherboard going up in smoke for reasons unknown. The RAM, X99 motherboards, and power supplies were different in these two cases. Manufacturers are now investigating and in at least the case of LR their Core i7-5960X also fried in the process."

USA sadly has democracy - so it does not matter what "he" thinks - the gov will do as it pleases, after making the most campaign sponsored one of two war criminals as the president, and passing some other representatives they will rule as they want, putting as much value on honor or morality as they did in past DECADES, acta, sopa, DMCA, patents, war on drugs, war on children drawing guns on paper, war on "sexuall predators" meaning 2 teenagers sexting eachother and so on.

Why you focus on a tool, while the problem is that we let this bad people create laws and take tax to sponsor the abovementioned evil projects and laws?

Even if it would be direct democracy, still it is simply a matter of calling "think of the childreeeen" "national emergency!" "external enemy!" "weapons of mass destruction" and other bullshit as usuall, and the scared with media masses of idiots will vote on what the hidden leaders want - the wonder of modern democracy.

Yeah they would be very concerned about "being strict with copyritgs" while heaving no problem killing you ;)

Well that is in fact what they do, but to enemies. It is ok to murder some rebels in one country, while you must over protect people in another one, such hypocrisy - but either way if you are the "target" they will not give any shit about any silly laws.

Weapons are important to defend oneself from governments, like democracy of Nazist's Germany or in more recent times the democracy that given usa NSA.

Bespides freedom versus big government problems, the guns are giving people chance to defend from common criminals.

Your girlfriends vs rapist - very little chance in unarmer combat.
Your girlfriends vs robber with illegal gun (strangely criminals tend to ignore law) - no chance.

Your girlfriend with gun vs rapist - is the better situation, I say she has right to defend herself, you say she does not?

Gunophobes have a serious lapse of logic in this matter usually.

Yes, this is in general why democracy is a stupid system (or any form of gov where gov decides about live of people to anything other then absolute minimum like making it illegal to murder, steal physical actuall property, rape, assault etc).

And I fully agree that we should have such a free world or at least a country somewhere in modern times too.

Sometimes I wonder if Linux should have functionality similar to AIX's trustchk.

Tripwire, SELinux, AppArmor...

grsecurity is more advanced then AppArmor, and even then SELinux. AppArmor does some simple RBAC SELinux does good RBAC GrSecurity does good RBAC, and provides wonderfull set uf kernel self-protection, memory protecion, randomization, logging, chroot jailing stuff (from PAX project).

With friends we now develop a Hardened Debian offspin that includes grsecurity, for now just a tiny addon to Debian, but it does provide grsecurity kernel for debian pre-built and checksummed realibly for well over half year now. project.

Chine is one of most capitalistic country in the world, they "communism" applies to worldview/personal freedoms (but also USA is fascist, so both suck), and to state-sponsored projects (but, USA does it too of course).
China is much more free market then USA (but not a perfectly free market, because it as all existing powerful city-states does run state central sponsored grand projects).

The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.
