  1. Is it sad that this makes me extremely happy ? Nice new desk surface and flooring for my office, battlestation is looking slick
  2. G-Darius, PS1, fantastic game i rediscovered recently after playing with retropie
  3. yeah i know, that's kinda the point, im sure the entire world hasn't just lost 4k on youtube.
  4. I just noticed that 2160p no longer shows up as an option on youtube for me, on videos that i know for a fact are available in 4k. Google search page 1 knows nothing of this, any ideas ? It was literally working yesterday. Using chrome, win10x64
  5. really dude ? at least check youtube before asking stuff like this, there are literally 3 or 4 videos on the channel about PCIe lanes
  6. Not completely true, its just tedious, the only way to do it without reinstalling, is manually. (or cloning if you are the kind of nerd that clones his entire machine every month.........yes i do that) honestly after 3 years of doing it for a living, making a shit infested garbage OS look somewhat presentable and hire-able, i can do it in like 10 minutes now, jus gimme a copy of ccleaner
  7. all these are good options, mine is the laziest and requires the least work IMO
  8. best way is to put the OS drive in the new machine with all files and crap on it, then just "factory reset" from within windows, its in the recovery section of settings
  9. BTW, Task manager doesnt show 100% for Disk usage when the bandwidth hits 100%, it takes into account IOPS and stuff too. Like you can max out a drive when you transfer loads of small files to it, 4k small writes, the drive literally cant go any faster, but it is only using a tiny amount of its bandwidth. fun fact
  10. download and install windirstat, not only will it show you very clearly what is eating up space, but it will also satisfy my need to see and judge the cleanliness of other people's computers
  11. so much true stuff here, i would totally recommend it. Building my first PC set me off on my career man. Build a PC, if you like it, you will become addicted instantly. If you don't really care that much for it, you still have a PC
  12. ive done this on my motorbike but the screws are a bit more hefty in one of those, wouldnt be so sure trying it on those little m2.5's
  13. you know, this is a weekly issue for me. Its always on some nasty ass HP pavilion or something, with that shit design where you need to remove to entire keyboard and trackpad to get at the most commonly replaced parts like drives and shit. You get down to literally the last fucking screw thats holding the entire front on, you can see a glimmer of the sata port from the depths, then you strip the last screw and want to die in a corner. Not saying i have a solution to this mind you, just thought id share that, best thing about being a computer techie is that there's usually another computer techie, who you can dump it on and let them deal with it
  14. yeah actually that does, from what i can tell it would just share lanes with my boot drive, and that's not something i really want sharing lanes. Although, since you had me back on the webpage for my board, ive just realised what else is hidden under my GPU, TWO MORE SATA PORTS !!!!!!!! Lol, dirty 3Gb/s ports though
  15. it seems i have been a bit mislead as to sizes of slots haha, i think im offset by a size, thinking every size is the next one up.............. ok so ive found an x1 sata controller, are we then saying that if i jam a riser into that x1 slot behind my GPU and stick that sata controller on it, that it will split the lanes with my chipset ? If that slot is a 2.0 slot then it must run off the chipset right, which worries me cos my boot drive is already running all the lanes of that slot
