    well, to verify if you messed stuff up in the bios, you can run a benchmark like Geekbench, and compare your score with others. if your score is really low, something is wrong. 
     
    also, well said. the whole piracy thing. i feel the same way.... sadly the legitimate users are always the one's who get screwed over.

    You'll be fine. You'll need to keep larger programs on other drives (like your mentioned WD Blue), but the OS and web browser sure will fit.

    i'm a little confused... 
     
    click on your name in the top right, then go to account settings. there is a tab called "signature". you can put it there.

    1. he can't ever get enough money for that older machine to afford this.
    2. $30 Windows keys are a really bad idea, and against Microsoft terms of service
    3. what he should do is upgrade his cpu to a 2600, which would be a lot more performance and still totally fine by today's standards. or if he's purely gaming, sell that gpu and get a better one, as long as it won't get bottlenecked by his i5. or find a magical deal on a 1060 and a 2600. 
    4. keeping an old hdd? you can get good ssd's for €50....

    nope that’s good, it’s a problem if your CPU is 100 and your GPU is at a low usage

    if you cant afford thermal paste, you cant afford a computer.....you know that video Linus did was a joke right? you shouldn't actually be using toothpaste. i would recommend doing chores and getting your parents to give you money so you can buy actual thermal paste and a better PSU, or you, know like the others said, get rid of the AIO and use that money to buy the components

    Mate... Sell your cooler... Get a Corsair or EVGA PSU... Get a stock cooler... Thermal paste comes with it... Dont overclock.... Stock speeds are enough for you... Atleast until you get the money to get the cooler again.

    Ashley xD reacted to Froody129 in Is my power supply good enough?   
    Then return your current cooler and use your old one with thermal paste. That leaves you with like $55 to spend on a non crap PSU

    Interestingly enough, it looks like it's made my inwin?!?
     
    However, I still don't really trust it. Efficiency less than 75% isn't a great sign, and across the two twelve volt rails it's only rated for around 320w.
    Return it, get a cheap $20 CPU cooler (Cryorig m9i for example) and a decent $40 psu to go with it.

    Ashley xD reacted to Froody129 in Is my power supply good enough?   
    Return the water cooler and get a cheap air cooler, some thermal paste and get a non crap PSU. Toothpaste is not gonna cut it and that’s why you had such bad temps

    just get a couple harddrive docks, and possibly a 1TB extra in your laptop itself. make sure you have a slot for one. that way you have enough data at home, and some for when you are not home.

    that thing looks crappy AF. i'd expect it to burst into flames if you even dare to overclock your cpu.
     
    happened to me you know. i had an ewent "500" wtt psu, in my previous gaming rig (Q9550 quad core) and i overclocked that. worked for about 2 weeks. then, BANG, smoke, and the power went off. the stupid thing fried my motherboard, audio interface connected to the pc, and 2 harddrives. 
     
    just get a good quality psu from a respectable brand.

    try with each dimm at a time, use the igpu on the cpu as an output, it sounds like a ram issue if it boot loops and blue screens before windows

    Ashley xD got a reaction from leadeater in server starts out quiet, then gets really loud.   
    okay, big story  
     
    i fixed the noise problem.
    first thing i looked up was the pinout of the 5 pin fan connectors on the mobo, and i found out that you can plug 3 pin fans into the middle. 
    i tried that, but that didn't work. why? the 5th pin is a loop of the ground wire, which needs to be connnected for the computer to detect the fans. so i got a fan not detected error which prevented startup. 
     
    i then had a brain wave. i grabbed some spare normal fans. just old crappy ones, and chopped off the connectors. i then soldered the wires to the original 5 pin fan connectors of the server's fans, which i also chopped off. so now, the 5th pin has a ground wire with voltage on it. and there you go, the fans were detected. 
     
    so the config now is: 2 fans in the back, one zip-tied to the cpu cooler, 1 pointed at the drive bays, and 1 pointed at the chipset. 
     
    because normal fans are not high pitched, the noise is very easy to cancel out, and it's much quieter as well. 
    i realize i have limited airflow, so i will install an application for remote temperature monitoring. 
     
    temps so far: highest temp, sensor 21, is 50 degrees celcius. this is the chipset, according to google. 
     
    the cpu cores are around 30 degrees, with around 30% usage on the cores due to Windows updating. 
     
    so yeah, succes. 
     
    i want to thank you a lot for your help.

    Ashley xD got a reaction from LogicalDrm in Windows 10 On 2 PC's   
    you need 2 keys.
     
    1st of all because that's the terms of service and it's illegal to use 1 key for 2 machines. 
    2nd is because Windows will automatically deactivate your key if another pc using the same one gets online.

    Ashley xD got a reaction from ErykYT3 in are ltt video's getting increasingly more annoying?   
    the title speaks for itself. 
    i find this is the case. now they started with interrupting the start of the video with an ad. why? pre-roll was much less annoying, because it didn't interrupt the video. 
    the general style of the video's have changed a lot in recent times as well. i'm a longtime viewer. since 2013 basically, and i don't find their video's as enjoyable as they were a year ago. 
    something changed, and i don't like it. the terrible jokes and puns in recent video's show this. something changed in the writing of the video's i think. i watch ltt because i'm a pc enthousiast and i want to be informed about the latest stuff. i don't watch because i like terrible joke, mid-video ad interruptions, and clickbait. 
    it seems Linus is focused more on ad's and money now than quality content. 
     
    EDIT: this is honest critisism. i'm not hating here, just my honest opinions.
