  1. The information in the first picture is strange too: Power On Hours = 39146 --> 4,5 years. Data written = 0? How can your C:\ SSD have soooo insanely many 'power on' hours and 0 gigs written? Edit: You have 2 more drives connected, you can always swap the sata cable from one drive to the SSD that you're testing. Just to make sure that it's not the cable
  2. I would upgrade it just to be sure. I've had a similar thing with the pc I've built for my sister, thing worked 99% of the time but as soon as there was some sort of power spike the PSU would turn off and reboot the pc. It's a good idea IMO to have some wattage left
  3. I've got an asus motherboard myself aswell, it's doing the same thing. I Have read about this 'issue' from at least 50 people with asus motherboards. Nothing to worry about
  4. When I put thermal paste on a die like that I use this method: 1- Put a small dot on the die 2- Just the syringe thingy (where the stuff came out) and just spread it out until the entire die is covered with a thin layer. 3- Put the cooler on it. It is REALLY important that the entire die is covered. If not? High chance something dies cuz of too much heat. Edit: they added a spatula thing with your paste. Just put a small dot on the die and use the plastic spatula to spread it out nicely over the die. When the entire die is covered just screw the cooling back onto it and you should be good to go.
  5. That one is great to use, cuz it won't fry your parts if you spill something. Great choice!
  6. Resolution? What application? I think a 4770k shouldn't bottleneck a 1080ti that much, I don't even think you need to upgrade an I7-4770k to run good with a 1080ti. Intel hasn't done many improvements on their chips in the last few years. I've ran a 1080ti with a 6700k and my experience is that a 4770k is pretty comparable (a bit weaker) to a 6700k. (I think you mean I7-4770k instead of I7-4470k?)
  7. Have you tried disabling power limits?
  8. Last time I flashed gpu firmware with nvflash I used completely diffent commands, I think it was: cd/nvflash64 nvflash64 -6 ROM.rom y y and I was done. Edit: I think I even did: nvflash64 -4 -5 -6 ROM.rom
  9. 1- Monitoring temps: I would use HWInfo 64. 2- Alcohol swabs are fine. 3- I would strongly recommend that you use non-conductive non-capacitive thermal goop (like MX4), just to make sure you won't short something when some of the paste gets onto the PCB. That way you can just slap it on and don't worry about a thing. 4- You should make sure that you just do it slowly and that you don't any possible parts on the PCB. It's not that hard, but just be calm, don't be to rough on the chip and you should be fine. The part that I think is by far the most important: make sure that you use thermal paste that CAN NOT damage your system in any way, shape or form. I replace gpu/laptop thermal paste on a regular basis for friends of mine, I always use Arctic MX4. I always put more than enough of that paste onto those chips and I've never killed a chip with it (even though I know a 100% that it will spill out onto the PCB).
  10. I manged to install windows 10 on the 500gb SSD. They way I did it: I downloaded the oldest windows 10 version I could find. Did some tinkering with the MBR (Master Boot Record). Started a custom windows 10 installtion (waited for at least 2 hours for it to reach to screen where I could pick which drive I wanted to install it on). Installation gave an error 2 times. The third time it did install correctly and is now working a 100%. I only have to do the updates for the last 2 years with MediaCreationTool.exe (from the Microsoft website) Thanks for all your help yesterday, really appreciated your commitment helping me
