    Weird Question

    Is the thermal compound used in PCs suitable for applications with temps up to 290C? Need to replace a heating unit in a 3D printer and unsure if I can just jam some arctic silver or mx-4 in there Not sure where else I would ask this and clearly my Google-fu is lacking.

    Bad SSD? Need Help!

    Dat Me. It only shows up once in a blue moon - corrupted drives do this until they are so corrupted they don't show any more

    Bad SSD? Assistance Pls

    Aw shucks, that means I have to send the whole system back Trying to install win 10 pro on to eitheran HP EX920 or Toshiba XG5 inside an Aero 15x

    Bad SSD? Assistance Pls

    It's the old boot drive from my Aero 15x that I just upgraded to a Toshiba - wanted to clone my files over but I left it in my workbench a little too long and Microsoft applied an update (New build of Windows). Now, nearly 100% of the time it does not show up in BIOS, Disk Management, or Disk Part. When it is able to boot, it locks up either at the lock screen before I unlock it, or on the desktop, and BSODs to critical_process_died What should I be doing to try and fix this? Is it hardware or software? I did try it in a total of three different M.2 slots over 2 PCs and it doesn't show up in any, while a HP EX920 will show up in all three. (I'm guessing it's hardware so should I just RMA it to save some trouble?) I should note that I was able to run an SFC Scan on it through sheer luck and it didn't fix the issue. Drive in question is a Transcend TS512GMTE510T - 512GB NVMe. Also, If I'm installing Windows directly from a usb bootloader to NVMe, none of my drives show up even though they are present in BIOS, where can I find drivers?

    Yeah, no. If it doesn't show up in Bios, disk management, disk part, and gparted it's not gonna show up in that either

    Hard crash - boot drive missing

    Oh no I'm well aware of the limit, and I can assure you that that isn't it Maybe I wasn't clear but the settings have not changed in the sense that they are different. I merely transferred my old settings (100% stable 99% of the time) to the new build of windows because Microsoft decided to roll out an update. This update happened to nuke all my personal preferences in all my programs so I had to put them back in. I rebooted after completing everything and this happens

    Hard crash - boot drive missing

    Nope, carried the same settings over to the new build after it wiped all my configs. Had to redownload all the custom fixes for the Aero 15, etc. And now it doesn't work (I think windows might be the problem but I can't roll back argh. Why include that option if it doesn't work!?)

    Hard crash - boot drive missing

    I i can't get windows recovery to roll back I might figure out how to do that. I guess I should have mentioned that this happened after updating to the latest build which I think wiped all my drivers.

    Hard crash - boot drive missing

    So I kinda accidentally went overboard with updates and after a reboot my Aero 15x crashed when launching task manager and BSODed with Critical Process Died, but not specifying any error codes or processes. The cpu and gpu are undervolted but neither have had issues in the past. So then I rebooted and was greeted by the BIOS. Again and again. I realized that only the storage drive was showing up and not the boot drive. I did a cold start to try and revert my undervolt but it died again before I could do anything. Now it just refuses to boot consistently. What do? Edit: I should mention this is right after a windows update. dunno what version it is but none of my other PCs have had to update so this might be one of those beta, not required ones that screwed it up.

    Slow Download Speed w/ Ethernet

    that 70 down is under perfect conditions, mind you, but still I would try a speedtesting website (ookla, google, etc) and if the speeds are around 60-70 (maybe 50 if it's busy) then you'll know it's not the actual internet/isp's problem. Maybe steam's servers are busy, maybe your family is hogging the wifi, maybe, somehow, your ethernet cable is so old it only supports 10mbps ethernet. If the speedtest is 10 or 20mbps then you might have just misheard

    Cpu delidding tool Amazon (Canada)

    In these applications, I don't glue the ihs back on as you want to refresh your LM once every 2-3 years. I take whichever's cheaper as they perform about the same for the average cpu. I'm sure that if you took a really high tdp chip it would matter but your average 60-95W tdp chips aren't going to care at all

    Best 120mm AIO (USA)

    I totally get it, but for instance, the NZXT 120mm aio performs worse than the CLC 120, which performs a teeny bit worse than the H75. Fans matter, pumps matter, etc, but I haven't paid a ton of attention to the 120AIO market so I don't know what's the best performer anymore

    @Tristerin Haven't heard of those guys but it seems more quiet optimized than performance optimized
