  1. Alright thanks. It is still under warranty so I will do that if it comes to it
  2. Over the weekend I started up my PC and it was stuck on the bios screen for a while and I turned it off as I could tell something was off. I then attempted to boot again and it said there was no boot drive. I still have windows on my 2TB HDD so I booted from that and I could access my files so I was able to back everything up and I attempted to repair the bootloader on the SSD through CMD but it did not work. I have since formatted the drive and reinstalled Windows but what caused this to happen? Should I RMA my SSD or was it a one time thing?
  3. I noticed a lot of storage was being use up so I decided to investigate and well, this is what I saw...

    With the corsair RGB fans you need the included RGB hub which then connects to the Lighting Node Pro.

    What do I need for Corsair RGB fans?

    I have the HD fans (basically the same) and I have them connected to the fan hub and have that connected to the lighting node pro which is then connected to a USB2 header. It is a nightmare for cable management but the end result is stunning. Also the corsair LED strips are really good. If you need more info DM me as it is a bit confusing at first.

    Right side of monitor is more blue

    Probably, it is only really noticeable on white pages such as word documents but in games and other things there is not visible so I will probably leave it.

    Right side of monitor is more blue

    On my new monitor - Acer Predator XB271HU - I noticed after calibrating the display that about two inches on the far right hand side looks cooler than the rest. I can live with it but is there any way to fix this?
  8. I just received an Acer Predator XB271HU and on the left right and top of the display there is a 5mm black border between the display and the bezel. I have changed the display size and changed the scaling but nothing has fixed the issue. I updated my graphics drivers and can not find any option in the monitors settings to change the scaling. I have seen many people have the issue but none have found a solution. Any help will be appreciated.
  9. Not sure what your budget is but you can't go wrong with a Corsair RM850X. It is modular, quiet and will have a lot of headroom for possible upgrades.

    Display Port Question

    I just ordered a 1440p 144hz (OC to 165hz) monitor and it uses display port which I have no experience with. It is probably a silly question but to get 1440p at 165hz will the cable that comes in the box be good enough or will I need to get a different higher bandwidth one?

    Help choosing a 27" 1440p monitor

    I am looking at getting the Acer Predator XB271HU but I do not know if I can justify spending £600. I want to get an ISP display but if I have to I will settle for a TN as there is a cheaper model of the XB271HU which has the same specs other than having a TN panel. Are there any other 1440p 27 inch monitors with G-Sync and a 144+hz refresh rate with an IPS panel for less than £600?

    Best 1080p monitor!

    I've been doing research for a monitor for my self and this one seems to look good for your requirements and budget: Acer Predator XB214H. It is 24 inch though so I am not sure if that is too big/small for you

    Advantage of IPS over TN

    I am going to finally change my 1080p monitor for a 1440p 144hz one. I am looking at the Acer Predator XB1 and the TN version is well in my budget but I always hear people praising IPS even though it costs nearly £200 more and has a longer response time. Should I spend the extra money and go for the IPS?

    2080ti vs 1080sli

    I currently have two GTX 1080s in SLI and I was wondering there would be any advantage of selling both and getting a single 2080ti or 2080 to replace it. For either 1440p or 1080p gaming would there be any improvement?
  15. I have a 16gb Sandisk Extreme Micro SD card which came with my DJI Mavic Pro and it works fine but when I want to delete the footage from the drone it says it is write protected. I am using an adaptor (I have set the lock to both positions and no change) to connect it to my PC and I can copy files but the only way to clear the footage is to format the SD card through the drone which I do not want to constantly have to do. Any ideas how to make it allow me to delete the video and photo files?
