  1. Ah okay, thank you! I think I will be getting this one that way I can put my smaller one i take out of the laptop in here and just use it as a large external storage. https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-SM2NGFFMBU33-M-2-SATA-Enclosure/dp/B00T8F298Y/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1549562945&sr=8-3&keywords=external+m.2
  2. Okay, so I can use one of these and when i plug it in Samsung's cloning software should detect it fine and let me clone everything? I just wanted to make sure before I buy it.
  3. I am looking to upgrade the 256GB m.2 ssd inside of my HP Spectre X360-4003dx laptop. It only has 1 m.2 slot so I wanted to see if there was a way to clone the existing ssd to a new 1TB Samsung m.2 ssd. Is there an external enclosure or adapter I need to buy to plug it in through USB 3 and clone it that way then just open the laptop and swap them out?
  4. Oh okay i see what you mean now. Well to till you the truth I mainly want to change out the cooler because I want to keep her temps a bit lower and the silent wings will also be quieter than the SP fans based on other videos I've seen. also the 212 EVO is a good value cooler but it doesn't fit the all black theme with some red accents that she currently has and the Dark Rock seemed like a good fit for this purpose. the Master air Maker 8 seemed pretty pricey and Just wanted to know if their was a big difference or not. But, now I'm going to just order the Dark Rock 4. I spent alot of time making her build look very clean and organized to help with air flow as well as stay a certain color theme. So that's why I stayed with those two cooler choices.
  5. Thanks If i don't go with the Dark rock pro 4 I will just go with the regular Dark Rock 4. The higher end you go with a cooler the lower it gets the temps so, I'm not sure what you're referring to there.
  6. I have 2 Corsair SP120s on it rightnow in push pull. how is a $20 cooler overkill for it?
  7. Thank you! And yes it is overkill but I want to have it so when i upgrade her rig later 9th or 10th gen CPU. All the stuff I get for my mom is overkill because she my mom bro. haha It is a Define R5 tempered glass clase with 5 PWM fans all running very low RPM (can't remember the number rightnow) and a GTX 780 DCUII Yeah i figured but the cooler is so ugly though. and I have her build all red with black.
  8. The 212 EVO is cooling it find but I want to turn down all her fans to the lowest possible and have an overkill air cooler to keep the temps down and not have to worry about noise. I do agree it is a a bit over kill but, its for my mom and price isn't an issue for stuff I buy for her. I put my old DCUII 780 in there just because. haha
  9. I'm going to upgrade my moms air cooler from the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO she has now cooling her i5-4460. I'm going for best air cooling performance but at the same time being as quiet as possible. Which one of these 2 coolers would cool the best while staying the quietest? I don't want to put a liquid cooler on it because I don't want to worry about leaks or the pump dying on her. Cooler Master uses vapor chambers so I thought it would cool better but its hard to find videos of the Dark Rock 3 or 4 being compared to the air Maker 8.
  10. I'll bite the bullet and turn it off tonight when I play some more Tomb Raider or Overwatch.
  11. Oh okay that makes alot more sense to me now. haha. well If that's the case then upgrading my monitor this year and then doing a CPU, Motherboard, RAM upgrade next year might be better. Just because, I know for a fact I will be upset that I hae a 6 core CPU and a few months later 8 core CPU's release that have a huge performance gain. To be fair I only noticed the drop when I had FPS counter on the other day while i was overclocking my GPU and seeing how much ssaa x4 effected my performance. I don;t like playing with Vsync off since the screen tearing really annoys me alot.
  12. twice the performance is what I like to hear. and that's mainly for gaming so for other task it should be a good improvement as well. Thanks for that info. Is Ice lake the next gen CPU or is it Canon Lake? I'm confused now. i was thinking Canon lake would be this year and would be their first 10nm chip and 8core.
  13. Oh okay I see, Thanks for that info. I don't only game though. I did put that I do alot of 4k video editing/rendering the more cores would help me. Also I would be getting the X or K versions since i do like overclocking my stuff. but I think for now I will stick with what I have and wait for 9th gen Intel chips. I don't pan on switching to AMD rightnow.
  14. Wow, I remember paying about $250 for my Maximus vi Formula back then. The prices for everything is higher these days it seems. And yes I mean that motherboard.If not I can also get the Hero but the formula boards looks so nice. ha Also don't I loose some features when running freesync with Nvidia cards?
  15. Yeah I'm leaning more towards that as well. If the 9th gen chips really will be 8 core then I think i'll wait so I can get the 2 extra cores and see a bigger performance gain. My monitor is only 60Hz but I do plan on getting a GSync monitor when Asus finally releases that GSync IPS 1440p monitor they announced last year. I know I can get a Ryzen chip rigtnow if I want 8 cores but Intel still beats them in gaming which is what I do most. Plus I really love Asus ROG Formula boards which are only for Intel.
