  1. It's a workaround but I'd ideally want to know what's causing the error in the first place.
  2. Hi, I've been having this issue for a few weeks now, and sometimes I can't even get past the warning screen because it only lets me to go the BIOS instead of booting Windows. I installed CrystalDiskMark and it says both my SSDs as 98% / 100% health. Any ideas? Thanks
  3. I don't know if this is normal but as you can see from the pic there is a gap between the block and the screws below.. Is this normal? Thanks
  4. Not sure what you mean? AMD is taking the fight to Intel in just about every way possible other than swinging fists directly.
  5. Sorry, but after recently buying an Asrock Z490 board, the idea that they have turned a corner couldn't be further from the truth. While I was aware of a few Youtuber's throwing Asrock under the bus regarding their Z490 board designs, I took it with a pinch of salt and went ahead and purchased one of their ITX Z490 boards. As it turns out, even though Asrock claims "unmatched overclocking capabilities" on their website, the board cannot handle even a fairly light OC on the 10600K without current throttling. Most boards usually come with options to increase the power limit in the BIOS, and even though the setting existed for the board in the User manual, it didn't actually exist in the BIOS. Having contacted Asrock support, they said this: "These options were originally planned to be available in BIOS, like for most Z-series motherboards. But with the 10th Gen CPUs and the power phase design and the size of the Z490M-ITX/ac, selecting different values for these options can cause too much risk for CPU and board. That is why they have been removed for this model." You bet I sent them a snarky email back. Don't take my word for it though, here are some videos.
  6. Yeah I managed to dislodge most with a brush, so looking much better now. Thanks. I just got the material details from the product page: https://www.ekfluidgaming.com/ek-af-alu-angled-90-g1-4-black Are you sure?
  7. It was for about 30 mins. Guessing I should have left it for longer? I'm also assuming that Red wine vinegar is the same as vinegar for all intensive purposes...
  8. I've tried hot water and Red Wine vinegar but there is still a lot of gunk on the insides. I don't really want to spend £30 on new fittings if I can get these in decent condition. Any suggestions? Thanks
  9. I've owned the Vive Cosmos, Quest, and Rift S. For PC VR, the Rift S is by far the best choice from my experience. Compared to the Cosmos, although the resolution is slightly lower, the Rift S display looked much better, was way more comfortable than both the Quest and Cosmos, had much better controllers than the Cosmos, better tracking, and was cheaper.
  10. Then why do mobos still provide driver downloads for Win10?
  11. I've always noticed that installing mobo drivers appears to make little difference to the system's performance / functionality. I've heard some people suggest that if there are no warnings in device manager, then Windows has automatically installed all the necessary drivers for you. However, if that was the case, surely it would warn you saying already have the suitable drivers installed when you try installing the mobo drivers directly, but it doesn't. What's the deal?
  12. Ah yes, didn't think of that for some reason.
  13. The 2700X is an officially supported CPU for that board so this issue should not be occurring anyway. Besides, there's so many other factors at play, I don't see the point in jumping to a conclusion so soon.
