  1. Have you looked at the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo? Low price and much quieter than a stock cooler. As far as GPU cooling, I've not heard of the method you're attempting, but Noctua and Corsair fans are both effective and quiet.
  2. You may be able to do this via command line, but I would recommend against doing so, unless you resize your System partition through a custom recovery mode such as TWRP. The partitions that list 0/xGB are unmounted and not an actual representation of how much storage is being used. Removing/adjusting them could leave your phone permanently bricked.
  3. This video is straight shit. I can assure you that single channel memory is substantially worse for gaming, especially on Ryzen (half the FPS in some cases). I'm not sure why they had the Intel chip in the beginning, it never saw the light of day afterwards. Waste of time. P.S. Take Alex out of any and all videos. I've yet to see a video he's been in that was done well, his knowledge is quite lacking. I'll probably get shit for this, but I said what I said.
  4. Do you have another GPU you can try? Back when I bought my 290x I had it running for about 8-10 hours before it shit out on me and needed to be replaced, so it's possible yours is just defective even after running for a short while.
  5. Only if the BIOS update is successful, and given that the built in BIOS updating feature is limited in it's ability to notify users of what's happening it's possible it didn't. CMOS reset never hurts to try.
  6. I'd say that's unacceptable, but it also depends on who you're contacting. If you're contacting Asus, MSI, Corsair, etc. who have the resources to staff an adequate support crew, it's very unacceptable. With smaller companies it's at least understandable, albeit a recipe for failure.
  7. Check your CPU Core Voltage while idling in HWInfo and report back to us. Also, you can likely set a fan profile in your BIOS. A quiet profile may already exist, but it's tough to say without knowing the board model.
  8. On low power yes. Hold the fans in place while you do it too.
  9. Is it safe? Yes. Normal? Not really. Turning on Vsync COULD help, as it may limit your framerate, thus making your GPU and possibly your CPU work less, but this is a bandaid solution, rather than a proper fix. I would suggest taking the bottom panel off and cleaning any dust you may have, especially on your fans and vents. Once done, run your laptop on a hard surface (like a table) where you'll have proper ventilation and see if that helps.
  10. If it doesn't fit in a SATA port, chances are it's not a SATA cable. Please provide a better picture and some useful information. If your information consists of the words "I think" you're wrong and not helping yourself. Also, have you considered the possibility that this isn't a required cable and your system might boot without it?
  11. A lot of people here like Aida64, but I don't use it myself. You can use something like MSI Kombustor or Heaven Benchmark to stress your GPU core. For stress testing your GPU memory (which should be overclocked separately) you can use OCCT with error detection enabled. This also stresses your GPU core but mainly tests for memory errors (similar to memtest for DRAM testing).
  12. We can't know if you have room to go higher, you'll have to test it yourself. I would suggest stress testing for extended periods of time (maybe 6+ hours) to ensure stability. You can do some research on overvolting if you'd like, this would allow you to push your card even further. You could also flash a modded BIOS which would allow your voltage beyond spec, but I'd recommend doing lots of research on this, as you can fuck up your shit royally if you don't know what you're doing.
