  1. try booting in safe mode or in linux and see if it still crashes, I would try to find something to stress your system as well that works in safe mode (or something that stresses it in linux, which can be just like a benchmark or something). if it still crashes you probably have a hardware problem (which may just be a problem with drivers, so make sure those are up to date) and at that point you're probably boned without buying different parts unless you have a compatible working system you can test each part individually in. other than that with a fresh windows install the only "normal" problems I can think of is with the OS, or outdated/missing firmware (drivers, BIOS, etc). for the OS you can try rolling back to earlier versions (assuming you're up to date), and for firmware you can also try rolling back but that's usually inadvisable, especially for core firmware like BIOS, and I would instead just make sure it's up to date. on the hardware side make sure that your computer is really clean, and that all your coolers are working and getting proper airflow. other than that not sure that I can help that much, good luck.
  2. @CPotter I mentioned this in a superchat during WAN show (Oct 4, 1:14:35, my phrasing was oof to be fair), but I think it'd be super cool for you guys to make a Halloween costume with infrared LEDs and reflector strips for when people take pictures/videos of that person (because those things would look invisible/normal respectively but under a camera sensor/flash it'd look significantly different than irl). Combined with a black morph suit with normal LEDs for looking cool in the dark I think it could make for a nice video right before/during Halloween. Plus I think this'd make a great segue into talking about how cameras work and how different conditions can effect your photos, and this doesn't work with all cameras cause some of IR light filters, and i think that this'd blow some peoples minds who didn't even know their cameras could do that. If anything those core ideas could make for a cool tech quickie. so this Plus plus Plus infrared lights in like a grid pattern that you could get to say anything which wouldn't be visible without a filter or a camera those lights like above (you can get a lot from "night vision" stuff on amazon or just them straight if you google "IR LED"), except hooked up to a costume in a grid pattern, with some being on and off acting like invisible pixels like:
  3. Moster Hunter and sea of thieves are pretty good tho less recent
  4. As a note a BUNCH of games are going to get released in the near future for upcoming holiday season, so you could also hold for that
  5. Then Code:Vein Maybe? it's okay, tho it's multiplayer is more co-op than MMO (released 9/27/19 which was a week ago) BorderLands 3 is good, tho also not really an MMO Apex, but that's free so you probably would've already been playing it if you wanted and the 3 above are AAA games, is that what you're looking for, or smaller? Mordhau is okay, but I personally didn't super like it and returned it (reviewed overall positive, recent mixed) Anthem got ripped on but it's actually pretty good, it's just not balls to the wall amazing it was promised to be
  6. I really like Dark Souls 3, and while it's multiplayer is still decently alive it's shaved down to almost nothing but try-hards and twinks, but it also makes a great singleplayer game if that's more your style, and I'd also be willing to play with you if you want/need any help. you can look at ChaseTheBro on YouTube for examples of recent multiplayer. And it's not as hard as most people make it out to be, I promise most of the problems people face is that they rush through the game miss/skip half the stuff and are 20 levels below recommended then get creamed by the higher level bosses. Other than that more traditional multiplayer games I'd suggest is Rocket League or Warframe, probably rocket league over Warframe tho cause you pay for Warframe with time and cosmetics, but mostly time it's as grindy or even more than Destiny. local multiplayer I'd recommend Crawl, super fun irl party game, but it doesn't have online in the game other than that there are tried and true games like CS:GO, Garry's Mod, RainbowSix, TeamFortress, most Battle Royales (Fortnite, PUBG, Apex), etc edit: and Minecraft, dat's good there are some good servers out there
  7. well I shrunk the partition by like 2MB like your thing said @Princess Luna, but it didn't help.
  8. Alright, I still don't know why the system is inaccurate, but WinDirStat knows how addition works so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  9. Right, It doesn't include hidden files by default, which is why if you looked at my screenshot you can see I specifically included them in my search. The 8GB discrepancy might also be relevant, but that's not as important as the 114GB that is missing.
  10. WHEN MAKING YOUR POST, ALWAYS: Describe the problem you are having in detail but without rambling. If your post is as long as this one, it's too long. C Drive lists itself as only taking 264 GB, yet I only have 85 GB free on a 463 GB SSD, which is a 114GB difference. I looked here: and here: https://superuser.com/questions/1118614/windows-10-reporting-wrong-hard-disk-free-space, but for the second link I looked and my recovery is only like 8 GB, and the first link requires going full nuclear on my hard drive and I'd rather just deal without having the space. (pics) Include your operating system including version and 32/64 bit. Windows 10, 64 bit Include your entire system specs, including the wattage of your PSU. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/sauronofmordor/saved/#view=hzRkdC Tell us which BIOS version you have. Some problems can be fixed by updating to the latest BIOS, so check that there are no updates available Bios version is A.D0, last updated 3/16/18 SMBIOS Version 2.8, and I can't seem to find if updates are available Include any software running when it crashes (if applicable) N/A Give full details of any error messages and screenshots if possible above Use an informative title briefly describing the error. It's not helpful to see a thread titled "please help" or "Urgent" because most people are better at some problems than others, so may not prioritize your issue, and some people will ignore you completely. yup
  11. @flibberdipper Thank you, and I think I found the answer to #2, I went deeper into the amazon Q&A, and found this: the 120mm artic silent fan is a 3pin fan, and ARCTIC Support is the manufacturer, so hopefully it wasn't just some low-level employee who didn't know what he was saying. again, thanks
  12. @flibberdipper In regards to question 6, what are the chances of the fans getting to high rpms with all 4 of them going in my fairly open mesh case (see below, 3 front, 1 back). Also would it be appropriate for me to repost this under general discussion to search for people who might know more about question 2, especially with the wiring situation for the fans (might just cut the cable and solder)? or at least to search for people who have the arctic 33?
  13. My current setup is fine, but I'm moving my rig into a bedroom with a roommate in a few months and right now it sounds like a jet engine even when it idles. I need it to be quiet enough that someone can fall asleep less than 5 feet away from it while I game, and right now my Ryzen 5 1600 is only overclocked to 3.4 Ghz because I'm using the stock cooler, and the 2 fans that came with my case. on top of this I have a mini 1060 6gb, but there's nothing I can do about that and I can barely manage the $50 for the cooling upgrade. I already have thermal paste from an old upgrade. 1. Are my picks decent for what I need them to do at a low cost? 2. my case can only fit 4 fans, but I'm getting a 5-pack, can I put the extra F12 on the Freezer 33? (it comes with a daisy chain built in, but the F12 isn't PWM and I'm not sure if the CPU fan is in a slave-master relationship like with normal daisy chains or if they need to be both PWM) 3. Would my 1060 get significantly lower temps? 4. Do the screws come with the fans? I'd assume yes but I haven't actually ever seen them so I'd figure it would be safe to ask. 5. Dafaq do I do with the old CoolerMaster case fans? 6. Do rubber washers reduce the sound at all, and would the screws be long enough to still go in even with the extra distance from rubber washers?

  14. Yep, you're right you can still upgrade to the 9900k, and I realize now that I left some ambiguity in what I meant when I said upgrade, and that's my bad. by "future" upgrades I meant like 10th, 11th, 12th, ... generation processors, you can still upgrade all the way to the 9900k I just meant that in even as little as 2 years Intel's newest processors probably won't run on that motherboard, and so you'd be stuck in 9th generation, but with the slowing of Moore's Law you're right you can upgrade to the 9900k and it'll likely still be relevant in 7 years (if a little security prone)
