    Melting fan cap with solder iron

    Don't try it with casted ones, you will most likely destroy the fan. Most modern fans today come cast or closed, they sould be lubed up for their full life time. If your fans feel rough or make wierd noises than replace them completely or send them in if you still have warranty.

    Getting frame drops after mining

    Might be caused by mining but I think it's more likely that some kind of software (like windows, PUBG is also heavy RAM riliant btw make sure you close browsers etc.) is running in the background. It also may be the case that your "testing" is flawed as PUBG is a multiplayer game without a discrete benchmark, so you can't be sure for reliability on your testing. Taking PUBG for testing is also not the best idea since performance flactuates sometimes drasticly from patch to patch. But as I said most likely something in the background or a patch (driver update maybe?) is causing issues. PS: Asuming that you reset any devolt or bios modding on your GPU you may have done for mining

    Monitor goes black and comes back in 2 sec

    I would try diffrent/better quality cables and maybe a different port

    Symptoms of a damaged cpu/mobo

    Sounds like malware, software/Win 10 issues or a bad hard drive/ssd. I recomand backing up all important files on a external drive and making a clean windows install to hope for the best. Unless the CPU isn't basicly uncooled (so no thermal paste on the IHS or no cooler on top at all) meaning it's constantly throttling, a CPU or motherboard fault is unlikely. A bad motherboard is most of the time no post at all or some non functioning slots (so dead PCIe or RAM slots for example). A bad CPU is also most likly a no post error.

    Scammed on ebay... Testing the 56 CORE system!

    I really liked the video. Nice that the seller except the return (I wonder if they just did that because the buyer was LTT and they didn't wanted the bad publicity)

    Which SSD would you prefer?

    What ever is cheaper in your region, the mid to high sata SSDs perform very similar in a way that you most likely won't notice a difference. pick the best GB/$ ssd that fits your needs.

    Delidded 8700K 5.2GHz Lightroom PC Build

    Yeah it already looks so cramped. /s (the natural light thing is very reasonable and it would look bulky on a sleek minimalistic desk though) I honestly would never get a Apple Magic Keyboard (key travel hight, size, no num block, .. price) and would probably saved a bit monitor on the monitor arm, too (400$ is a kinda high price for a single one). But if you like if you like how they look and find yourself productive while using them thats fine I guess The whole package of course looks super clean and sleek and I really like that. Over all the minimalistic but natuaral room and desk setup looks very harmonic. The whole thing wouldn't suit me since I can't keep such things clean for longer than maybe a hald hour So super neat and super powerful, maybe a bit pricy on one or the other side but as long you like it a super build!

    Mining on old hardware?

    I can't help you very much but you should add some more Info for better results, like how much you pay for electricity in your region and if the rig can run 24/7 without disturb you

    PSU and watt headroom

    You will be fine. That everything at the same time is in 100% use is also a very unlikely case (do use every USB port o your motherboard for example with devices that draw the full 2,5-10W on it, are your CPU, your GPU and all your hard drives at 100% use .. very ulikely. Those calculations numbers for power usage are also most of the time very relative values, rough estimates, TDP values and so on are no acurate power usage numbers.
  10. In many cases console ports are also poorly ported for the PC (Nier: Automata for example uses a ridiculous amount of horsepower on the PC,it doesn't utilize all threads on the CPU, has some VRM loops on the GPU side etc.) , these games get released all the time this way. Or things like the DRM software in the game cause trouble on the PC, it tanks the whole system even all the time and may also have problems with antivirus software (thanks Ubisof for the bad performance of AC Origins by various DRMs ). A console doesn't has these problems, it doesn't have to be optimized for more than this one console or generation. DRM is often managed via an external networks like PS plus, or Windows live) or by the hardware itself (the kind of discs for example or with special disk management that isn't a standart one and not public so that a normal optical drive can't read them) All I said is that a console and the PS4 espacially is hardwarewise a very cheap package (it is several years released now, every eleictronic store has them in stock so that they reduced their prices), all you need is a TV/Monitor and your ready to go. The titles you can play on a console are specifically produced and optimized for the hardware (also often more expensive btw especially overtime, the PC version gets cheaper), sometimes even tweaked to fit the kind of hardware in the console compared to the PC version. The developer for the console may release the games early for the console and later on produces a "ported" PC version which often lacks the full optimizations needed for all the kinds of hardware and generations which the PC may have, which will result that you need a more powerfull hardware on the PC to compensate for it. The way the console market works is different from PC the hardware (console) is relativly cheap, often bundled with a few games. It may have "exclusive" titles that are only (or only first) released only for this console but the games cost 50-80€ each with a extra bit of markup to finance the production and development of the console itself (plus the game development, but to produce a game for a console licensing is also involved which is also a way for Sony for example to finance it's platforms). Things like PS plus are added to even grant a continous cash flow from these who play online games which most of the time have a huge replay value. The PC more or less don't has these for the most part. PS: also one of the major things to consider is that a console will age in a different way than the PC does, every now and then a new console generation is released, to play more new titles you have to buy the whole package again. The PC is a bit of a different story you can upgrade it partwise to suit your needs it is also a downward compatible platform (at least as long Windows don't like to brake everything, but even than you can manage to play even games on the same PC that are 15 years old)
  11. The PS4 is generally speaking by the current pricepoint faster/cheaper than a complete PC setup (it's already . But it runs not every game in 4k, some only upscaled 4k and others only in 1080p. It also matters which PS4 you have (PS4<PS4 Slim<PS4 Pro). But if you have a PC (with mouse, keyboard and screen) it may be worth it to upgrade something to get better framerates. PS: You also don't need 4k if you don't have a TV/Monitor to use it.

    Which one should I give up?

    I would say drop the Asus one the 768p is just ... The 4720HQ sould be more or less the same speed wise, but may drain a bit more power (aka a bit less bettery life)
  13. It is most likely that you either loosen (or forget) to plug your 4/8pin CPU power plug back in or that one of your RAM sticks isn't 100% pluged in. Happens to me everytime on these 1 side snapping RAM slots and every time I freak out that I broke something.

    1050 Ti or 1060... Just asking.

    What ever fits your budget, both will run any current game more or less decently, the 1060 is a bit better but go only for the 6gb version. I bought my little brother the Asus GTX 1060 6gb Strix OC and it seams to work like a charm is very quiet (at least quieter as my EVGA GTX 1080 TI SC black edition :P)

    Upgrading my laptop CPU?

    Intel FCBGA-1168 B= Ball G= Grid A= Array aka soldered on. It may be somewhat possible to swap this CPU but not by a normal person without the specific soldering tools and knowledge, it may be locked on in the bios, too. So sell this old one used online and get a new one for an upgrade I guess.
