    Trying to Format My Drives

    Use the Media Creation Tool to prepare your USB stick and boot to it. You might have to go into CMOS to change to the USB for boot. https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10

    Trying to Format My Drives

    When you do a fresh install of Windows you get to a window that allows you to delete partitions, format, and create partitions. You can delete all partitions on both drives at this point so that you are left with two drives with one unformatted area each. You could format the second drive and create a partition at this time if you wish. Just leave the OS drive blank and unformatted and install on it. Windows will create any needed partitions and format them automatically before installing.

    Scrapping my eGPU GPU build

    Nice, so many people miss the S. For a gaming machine I find 240GB for the OS and clients such as Blizzard, Steam, etc. good. All games will be installed on secondary drives, SSD or HDD. This makes a system image with Win10 Backup and Restore (Windows 7) small to store and quick to replace. Any probs down the road and 15min later your up and running with OS and all apps set up. Good point. The difference between Intel and AMD for gaming is getting less. Considering the $ value differences AMD is looking damn good. MORE POWA! Overbuild and overkill.

    Triple 60mm Radiator?

    Triple 60mm Radiator?

    No idea. But a volume comparison shows a 240x120x25=720,000cu mm and 219x61.5x45=606082.5cu mm. So if all other aspects were equal you might expect 84.178125% performance compared to a typical 240mm rad.

    CPU Cleaning Help!

    Nope, denatured alcohol will evaporate and that short exposure shouldn't hurt any plastics. I would certainly try that over the dishwasher.

    CPU Cleaning Help!

    Seems like a good non-destructive solution.

    Those Mongolians know how to Rock. I think it's the horses.

    GTX 1080 temp 80+

    I like a curve which starts around 40% and ramps up to 100% between 60C and 75C.

    GTX 1080 temp 80+

    Gigabyte manufacturer site will have the progs for case fan curves under Support. APP Center / System Information Viewer does case fan curves. Look up Support under your specific MB. MSI Afterburner can be downloaded here at the bottom of the page. You don;t need Kombustor or Predator capture.

    GTX 1080 temp 80+

    Have you used the Gigabyte MB utility to set a custom fan curve for your case fans? Have you used MSI Afterburner to set a custom fan curve for your GPU? (works for ASUS too).

    Old Gaming PC

    Not much so give it away to someone in need.
  15. Canada here. It's winter and static has caused probs in the past with my PC. Now I have a grounded piece of metal, the brass shelving unit which holds my PC, which I touch before touching my PC.
