comment Motherboard temperature reaches 124° C?
We likely are seeing a bug in Speccy where it can't read our motherboard's sensor correctly. I found that hwinfo64 seems to read correct temps.

comment Motherboard temperature reaches 124° C?
@bamboon I was about to say the same, but I don't think the down vote is necessary; his reasoning is correct. Speccy was showing incorrect data... other software shows my Motherboard at 28° C and Motherboard Auxiliary (?) at 36° C.

comment Rootkit-like program with numbers:numbers.exe
Thanks for the heads up. I encountered this nasty beast on a friends machine, and after a number of attempts to pull it out failed, TDSSkiller + ComboFix in safe mode & ComboFix again on reboot managed to fix it.

comment It is possible to change windows7 64bit to 32 bit without re-install windows?
It's no longer wrong information after the edit, but still doesn't clearly answer the question.

comment It is possible to change windows7 64bit to 32 bit without re-install windows?
This is completely wrong, the x86-64 instruction set contains the entire 32-bit instruction set (implemented in hardware.) Any 64-bit CPU of the x86 architecture should fully support 32-bit software.

comment How does Windows Driver Verifier works and how to run it?
@Diogo It is for testing driver stability, but as others have said, it's intended for developers. Once you know what driver is crashing, the most you could do is check for an updated driver (which may or may not exist.)

comment Arrange JPG images based on JPG compression/quality
This is correct - JPEG uses lossy compression, and doesn't store any value indicating how much it's been compressed. Any artifacts (quality degradation) introduced by image compression are completely relative to the viewer; the PC can't discern any differences.

+1, I spent 15 minutes looking and didn't find the FAQ. :/

comment What high-end PCI-E 2.0 graphics cards are backwards compatible with PCI-E 1.0?
Interesting to hear about how VRAM is treated. I will be using PCI-E x16, and those benchmarks are a plus... looks like I'll have go a little higher to get the performance I'm looking for. Thanks!
