Graphic card burning by malicious program or hacker: possible.

Since furmark has been limited in drivers I searched for a way to heat up my cards (2x GTX 580 SLI).
I came across MSI Kombustor, but I noticed only one card was used.
Playing with NVIDIA Inspector I created a profile for kombustor 3 and now both cards are used.
Fiddling with the settings I found a way to maximize heat.
For example: with my setting (air cooled, stock fans, custom fan curves and fully overclocked cards) using Valley in Extreme HD mode, my temps are 82 for the primary card and 69 for the secondary (after an hour of looping).
With kombustor3 and the profile I created, the cards heat with a steeper curve up and maximize (99 degrees) in a few minutes, then thing get weird and ugly :D

If you are interested in further testing here is the setup:

1) MSI Afterburner Version 4.1.0.7013
2) MSI Kombustor 3 (launched clicking the K in MSI Afterburner: this will run it in windowed furmark mode)
3) NVIDIA Display Drivers 335.23 (which are the fastest for my cards, the newer drivers are 5 to 10% slower)

NVIDIA Inspector profile for Kombustor 3: https://www.sendspace.com/file/ja2pop

Let me know and be careful to temps. If you don't have a good cooling this may harm your cards.

Here is a screenshot of a few seconds of run:

Online Samsung SSD firmware encoder/decoder!

Here is a little program that can
obfuscate and deobfuscate
Samsung SSD firmware files.

I'm against obfuscation because it's
a stupid malpractice aimed only
to keep off unliterate people.

Use as you please and drop me a comment/email
if it was useful to you.

Android, no deep sleep problem: SOLVED.



In the last few weeks I noticed a heavy battery drain on my Galaxy Note 3, which has always been perfect battery-wise.
After further inspection I noticed that the phone stopped to go to "deep sleep" when it was connected to my home WiFi.
I even banned my phone from my LAN, just to exclude any external cause.
Nothing changed.
I checked the wakelocks and didn't see anything "strange".
After a few days of inspecting and testing, I found nothing.
But that nothing, meant something: no application was to blame.
Apparently it was the O.S.
I didn't factory restore my phone, because I "sensed" that restoring the backups I may be facing the same problem again.
Excluding the apps, and after checking all settings (and finding nothing was wrong) ,and thinking "out of the box" I came with a "stupid" theory:
what if a bug or a glitch messed up some internal settings?
What if one of my many tests launching "actions" (using activity launcher) saved something wrong somewhere?

Well, I then did this test and...guess...it worked!
My phone isn't insomniac anymore and the battery lasts 3 days on standby and almost 2 days on a medium usage.

And here we go with the simple solution that worked for me.
It may do nothing to you if you have other issues,
but it's worth a try.

Connect the phone (any android phone, because this problem has been reported on many different handsets) and, from your computer, use ADB as follows:

adb shell pm clear com.android.providers.settings

adb reboot

That's it.
You will have then to setup again the main settings only (lock and home screen images, basic customizations, etc)
