  1. Do you have a recommended video which shows what to do? Also, will using the disk not work, or is it recommended to use a USB Stick? Also, if I back up Program files and program files (x86) will that safe the old drivers?
  2. Okay, thank. This may be a stupid question, but how do I clean install? I do have the disk and product key, but when I had my computer built, I was too nervous about building it myself, the guy used his own disk/usb drive I believe, but used my key. Will that be a problem?
  3. If I unplug everything but my OS SSD, and then do a clean install, then replug everything, will that work?
  4. I have a lot of stuff downloaded though, about 1.5 TB of games and school work. So I don't need to uninstall drivers for the current MB?
  5. I'm about to upgrade my computer from a 5820K to a 8600K. I've been looking around the internet and I found a video that reminded me of the Windows 10 "Reactivate windows" thing. I remember hearing that they made this easier, but I would still like it if someone could tell me how this should go, and what I should do. Also, I came across this one video that says I should remove any and all drivers pertaining to my current CPU, Motherboard, and other things. Is this a real thing? Here's my current build and the upgrades I plan on installing: Current build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/GoldForest/saved/jg6hMp Upgrades: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/GoldForest/saved/TX4zMp I plan on upgrading within an hour or so, so quick would be appreciated.
  6. I already bought the DRP4 and I bought Noctua's thermal paste to go on it. Derp... But thank you for the information anyway. I will consider it for the future. Also, I went with the 8600K because I don't really do much but game. I might record in the future, but before I do I will upgrade to the 8700K for the threads, but as of right now, I'm just gaming, nothing else.
  7. Alright, Decide to go with DRP4. Thanks everyone!
  8. Okay, final decision, Noctua or DRP?
  9. Should I go ahead and do that? Buy third party paste? hmmm. I don't really see inside my case. The window is small and hidden by my desk pretty much. I have to bend down and look inside. Although, the DRP4 is sexy... Hmmmm.
  10. How good is the DRP4? And is the Thermal paste that comes with it any good?
  11. Hmmm, true. Plus, dual/triple tower heatsinks perform on par with 240mms, so H60 would under perform out of the other's I'm considering. Alright, so it's between the NH-D15 and H115I Pro Idk which one to go for. NH-D15 is on par with most 240s, but a water cooler would be good for OCing... Mmmm, I don't think I'll OC anytime soon, and when I do plan to, I can always swap out for a water cooler. Alright, I've made up my mind, I'm going with the NH-D15. Question, can the D15 handle a third fan on it? Does it include a third fan holder? Just wonder if I can squeeze a little more cooling into it. Edit: Oh, and do I need thermal paste?
  12. So the Rev. 2.0 version might be fine? Also, I'm not considering three options: H60 H115I Pro Nh-D15
  13. Are the hardware issues real or it is more people don't know what they're doing? I would really like to know. I've heard the x62 has great performance and out performs most if not all 240mm's. So H115i Pro and I don't need to buy separate fans? Thanks I know dual or triple towers are what you want when it comes to heatsinks, as for silent fans, I don't think it will matter much. Super huge case, but I wear headphones all the time. As for copper heatspreader, don't all heatsinks come with copper plates?
  14. That's what I've heard. Can't go wrong with Noctua. Oh, and if anyone is wondering why I just don't use my current X61, I plan on selling it to a friend along with the board, RAM, and CPU.
