  1. I'm not planning on connecting more than a total of 3 devices to it though. I don't think a molex connector can fit through the hole, it will probably be too narrow.
  2. My case has a hole on the back right next to the right side panel which is just wide enough to fit a single plug from a SATA power cable though. I'm using it to power a Corsair Lighting Node Pro externally for desk RGB LED strips. I want to connect a second one, so I'm looking to get a Y-splitter. Some of these look like those shitty molex to SATA cables, and I'm familiar with the saying. So I just want to make sure these things won't catch fire. Besides the one LNP currently running on the cable, I also have an H115i Pro liquid cooler. https://www.startech.com/be/Cables/Computer-Power/Internal/6in-SATA-Power-Y-Splitter-Cable-Adapter~PYO2SATA https://www.startech.com/be/Cables/Computer-Power/Internal/6in-Latching-SATA-Power-Y-Splitter-Cable-Adapter-Male-to-Female~PYO2LSATA https://www.startech.com/be/Cables/Computer-Power/Internal/4-SATA-Power-Y-Splitter-Cable-Adapter~PYO4SATA If these are shit, any other recommendations? Do note that I live in Belgium.
  3. This started several months ago. I wasn't heavily gaming back then and I was worried I might have caused damage so I didn't really look into it that much. But I've been trying to solve the issue, and I'm pretty much at the end of my rope here. In many games, I get frame rate drops paired by (sometimes extreme) frame time spikes, resulting in bad stuttering. Battlefield V is the game where I experience this the most. But I get the same in Final Fantasy XV, Dragon Quest XI and Ni No Kuni II. I have used 60fps caps in those games, and the issues persist. Weirdly some games, like Monster : Hunter World and Ghost Recon : Wildlands are unaffected. You can see some examples on the screenshot Here's everything that I have done : -Full system format. -Took my PC apart and reassembled it. -Replaced the GPU. -Replaced the RAM. -Replaced the PSU cables. -Replaced the Displayport cable. -Stopped using integrated graphics and ran all monitors through my dedicated GPU. -Plugged the GPU into my second PCIe x16 slot. -Reset motherboard to default settings, getting rid of my overclock. -Disabled all non-essential background processes. I'm thinking somehow I damaged the CPU, or there is a fault with my motherboard. So currently I'm considering getting the cheapest (hopefully second hand) 300-series motherboard I can find and slotting my CPU in there to see if anything changes. I'm not sure if there's any point in that. But before that I'm going to play on a different screen and see if that changes anything. Specs : -i7 8700k (normally at 4.7-5Ghz, now at stock) -MSI Z370 Gaming Pro Carbon -2x8GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200Mhz C16 (in dual channel) -EVGA GTX 1080ti FTW3 (not overclocked) -Crucial MX100 256GB SSD, Crucial MX300 525 SSD, Samsung 850 Evo 500GB SSD (tried games on all three drives) -EVGA SuperNova G3 750W (using cablemod cables and stock cables) -Acer Predator XB271HU (1440p 165Hz G-sync)
  4. I've spent some time with Microsoft support and more shit started to happen. I think I'm just going to format my boot drive. Sigh...
  5. I just cleared my cache and it didn't clear anything. I guess I could try wiping my history too.
  6. No problem, thanks for the help anyway.
  7. I tried that al I tried that already, unfortunately it did not work.
  8. I tried setting that folder as an exception in Windows Defender, but it didn't change one bit.
  9. I edited my post with a link to others having the same issue with firefox. I do not know anything about SQLite, so I used the Wikipedia page to look at common users. The only one besides Firefox that I use is Skype (yeah yeah I know, but I know people who only use Skype.) Perhaps this can shed more light?
  10. I have a whole bunch of "system" running, not sure what any of it is. The top picture is with CPU utilization at around 8%, the second one with 0-0.1% usage. The list quickly grew smaller and smaller as the CPU usage kept lowering. Edit : I did some googling and it turns out those files are related to firefox. I got a google hit for mozilla's support page about antimalware usage, but sadly it's a dead link. Edit 2 : Looks like I'm not the only one with this issue : https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-security/windows-defender-constantly-creates-and-reads/f5d48ecf-6446-40fd-b9e3-32ae5962b688
  11. I will, and I will get back to you later. Thanks.
  12. 6-8% might not be high on the surface, but it does seem to be excessive for an overclocked 8700k.
  13. Usually after 6%. The CPU tends to float at around 35-40°C when idling, when the fans spin up it goes above 50°C. Well the other way around but you know what I mean.
  14. I did a reboot with all non-Windows services disabled through msconfig, the issue remained.
  15. Can I set it up so that it only checks new files like things I downloaded in my browser, and especially .exe files? I am not really worried about loading times or anything. But my fans continuously ramp up and back down (multiple times per minute), I don't think those constant fluctuations are good for them. And even if that doesn't matter, my system constantly going from quiet to loud to quiet again etc is really working on my nerves. The reason I assumed it's scanning all the time, is because the increase of CPU usage always goes hand in hand with disk utilization at dozens of MB/s.
