I went to the OC forums and Tom's hardware looking for an answer to this, and both threads ended up arguing about it with no clear answer.
So I ask you /g/,
Does a 1000w PSU draw more than required to power a PC?
and if not,
Is a 1000w PSU more efficient?
>Is a 1000w PSU more efficient?
Depends. Different PSU have different efficiency in different wattage ranges
>Does a 1000w PSU draw more than required to power a PC?
No. It doesn't draw 1000w if your CPU needs 450w, if that's what your asking.
Efficiency is usually best when the PSU is operating close to half of its max rated output, as in pic related.
So if your PC typically draws 500W, a 1000W PSU will have good efficiency. If your PC typically draws 100W, a 1000W PSU will have lower efficiency.

>apps are never up to date with the Play Store
>app seems to always be in Alpha state
Why is this such a piece of shit?
Is it really that hard to make a package manager that isn't complete shit?
No wonder people on /g/ still use the Play Store over this.
there are reasons behind it.
1) you have control over whether or not you want to update the sources
2) Once sources are updated you know what you're getting
3) Apps never being up to date with the play store has nothing to do with f-droid but rather package maintainers
>2 minute download time is more like a problem with slow internet connectivity
I have 100MB internet and it takes that long. 3.5MB seems to take 90 seconds to download on this piece of shit.

WHY DIDN'T ANYONE MAKE A BTFO THREAD
WHY DIDN'T ANYONE AT LEAST MAKE FUN OF IT

What kind of fucking retard is still using ABP or one of its forks in 2016? Be a good boy and download uBlock Origin like the ABE dev told you to.
Is there a text editor as simple as Leafpad but with styling (italic, bold)?
Let's talk Fitness Trackers.
Thinking about getting one, lots of people say to get the Fitbit Charge.
Opinions? Better ones or worse ones?
Can't wrap my head how I'm supposed to model some things while programming, it happens time and time again.
Latest example I'm trying to make something imdb-ish, put some movies and series, but also would want to be able to divide series into seasons and seasons into episodes. While in a way series and movies are on the same "level"(as if you want to show all the titles you have available), also are the episodes and movies on the same "level"(as if you want to mark something as "watched".
All this while sufficiently generic...

Can anyone explain what a triforce tutorial is?
Why do people buy VPNs again?
hey /g/, how would i go about writing every single rgb value in pic related in a text file automatically? is there some format that stores data like this?
Well that's a JPEG so you're already fucked.
But if you had it as a lossless file, convert it to a BMP and open the image in a hex editor - pic related.
It's relatively easy to suck the pixel data out of a lossless file. BMP is the easiest imo.

What would be a good major that correlates well to his business for college? All I can think of is computer engineering but I'm too stupid for that.

I need a good alternative to TS3, nobody want to host [spoiler]or pay[/spoiler] anymore and "public" servers are shit.
So what is your opinion on ARM? They can be pretty energy efficient and have crazy strong GPUs which can do 4K at crazy low energy consumption
I expect ARM to expand into ultra low power consumer laptops with OSX & (Maybe) Microsoft within the next few years.
Apple will probably be the first to do this. All they have to do is tweak the A9x or whatever they call it and optimize OSX for ARM.
I'd consider buying something like a macbook with an ARM chip running OSX as a basic portable machine.
The Intel M core or whatever they have in there currently thermal throttles to hell and back anyway.
I can imaging the amazing battery life already.
The obvious contenders for full operating systems on ARM chips are Linux (head start from raspberry pi) and OS X (convergence with iOS). Windows RT was such a disaster that nobody would touch it with a hundred foot pole now.
Don't really like the idea of it superseding x86 and killing the last bit of diversity in consumer and entry/mid-range business hardware but I'm interested in seeing its server and even workstation applications most of all.
