  1. i'll be brief: i have a software (windows 10) RAID 0 consisting of 2 identical mechanical drives as general storage and i boot from an SSD. I plugged in an old HDD i had just to check what was left in there (it used to be a boot drive and still had windows 10 installed in it). This somehow prevented me from getting past the windows loading screen so i decided to restart because i assumed it was trying to boot from the old drive. I went to the BIOS and made sure to boot from the SSD. It tried to load windows and then it sent me to the repair thing which then prompted me to restart. To make sure everything was OK i turned off the PC, unplugged the old drive and then it booted up normally but i found that the PC was chugging hard to open file explorer. When it did my raid array that was named "RAID (D:)" was no longer called that and just called Local Disk (D:) it didn't grant me access and all the games i had installed in it showed as blank links in my desktop. I turned the PC off, checked the BIOS and both of my raid 0 drives showed up normally, got into windows, in Disk Management the (D:) Drive still showed as a 1.8tb partition and it was reported as healthy. When i checked Storage Spaces one of the two drives showed a warning of "Error; consider replacing" It might be true that plugging in the old drive was just a coincidence but its too big of a coincidence for me. I believe the error is a false error and was caused by some mixup with the old drive. How do confirm or deny my suspicions? Is there something i can do to recover my files? what should i check/try?
  2. So i wanted to share the experience i had with GPU undervolting and how you can get your GPU to run cooler (and quieter) without sacrificing performance (and even get a bit of a boost compared to stock). The GPU in question is a GTX 1060 3GB (no factory OC), and i stress tested it with FurMark. After a bit of tuning, i got the voltage down from 1.000V to 0.862V (haven't tried to go lower), the clocks up from 1809MHz to 1974MHz (above 2000MHz there's stuttering). Here are the results: My temps dropped from 82-83C to 79C and my frames are up 5%.
  3. So i'm looking into replacing my TV. Most of the new TVs have 120hz panels which is something I want (i got a PC hooked up to it for media consumption/gaming) but many don't support it as an input. I wanted to know if there's a way to find out if a given 120hz tv supports it as an input or not.
  4. So i've had this build for about 8 months w/o problems when it came to plugging peripherals to the front pannel. On my front pannel i've got the usual, a single 3.0 and two 2.0s. i connect my mouse, KB and a bluetooth adapter to them and up until now had no problem but out of nowhere my mouse (plugged to the 2.0) stopped working. i started troubleshooting and the 3.0 works fine. the problem is on both the 2.0s. They do fine with low powered things like the bluetooth adapter and my KB with the backlight turned off but if i turn the backlight on, plug the mouse to it or even something as low powered as the xbox controller wireless adapter it can't handle it. i already tried reseating the motherboard connectors and changing it to another and it didn't fix it. all the ports on the MoBo work fine and the cables that go from the MoBo to the front pannel also look fine. What else can i look into that i might have missed?
  5. ok, got it. Is there any way to add Hardware RAID functionality to my MOBO? like buying something that connects to the PCIe port?
  6. So Im upgrading my storage from a 500gb HDD to 2 1tb HDDs in RAID 0. My mobo doesn't support Hardware raid so i set it up with software on Windows 10 (using Storage Spaces). The thing is i can't figure out how to install windows on my new HDDs. I tried cloning my whole system with EaseUS to it (it cloned it but it didn't boot up). I tried installing a fresh Win10 with a flash drive (it showed error message: We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one). I haven't been able to find a tutorial on how to install an OS on a software RAID 0 system to the point where I think it might not even be possible. Can someone help me or at least point me in the right direction? i've been 12 hours straight trying to do this and I finally ran out of ideas.
  7. So if i choose to run windows from the RAID i should expect basically zero performance boost?
  8. So i'm building my rig that is exclusively for gaming and i want a cheap and decently sized storage so i was looking into 2 1tb Seagate BarraCudas HDDs (about $45 each) on raid 0. This is because i want decent load times in my games and i don't really care about it being less safe (i can always download games again). I want to know if someone knows about how much performance improvement i would get vs a single HDD, if someone has tried it or if it is even worth it at all. here's the video that made me question what i thought i knew about the subject and ultimately led me to ask the all knowing LTT forum
  9. So i have finally built my PC to switch to the Master Race but IDK anything about how to choose a mouse that will be good for gaming. I've seen high DPI numbers marketed (as high as 12000) but then i read up and supposedly DPI isn't worth shit? Im lost. How do i know that a mouse will accurately track my movements?
