  1. And gaming.
  2. check to see if Windows Update is connecting to the server properly (if the drive in question is the boot drive or a startup drive).
  3. You need to have one of the chipsets released near Kaby Lake.
  4. Can you use Resource Monitor to find what is using the disk?
  5. Get the GPU now and wait for Ryzen 5 to decide on a CPU.
  6. You're usually increasing the voltage on the millivolt. It isn't like to add another 100W per OC part. For reference, my personal PC uses ~430W on max load to the CPU/GPU/disks at once.
  7. Considering the hypothetical situation, I'd take the 30Hz for all genres rather than 60Hz and low graphics that would benefit one genre.
  8. Overclock = OC. Edit: At least on this forum.
  9. CX500M is good enough for overclocking. You likely won't hit more than 400W after good OCs are achieved.
  10. I've been gaming too long to not play a game just because I don't get 60Hz.
  11. I'm going to assume your question is: A) PC that plays 60Hz on low details with no changing of settings vs, B) PC that plays ultra at 30Hz. I'll take B. Having a good looking game is much better as seeing any artifacts (jaggies, blocks, smudges) is annoying at high frame-rates.
  12. The stock cooler is sufficient as long as you don't overclock. You won't be hitting the 95W TDP if you don't overclock, so you'll be fine until then.
  13. I'd buy them for 400 total, but I've sold all my GPUs and don't want to stockpile again.
  14. Fractal R5, Challenger U3, or Enthoo Pro.
  15. Aida64 or Crystal Disk Info
