    how can i fit SSD in here?

    Hi how can i fit SSD in the place of DVD drive in hp elitedesk 800 g1, please see below pics. Can i just use tape to fix it as i dot have screw holes/screws? if yes duct tape or sellotape, Please advise, thanks!! In one pic, there's shown a bay for drive but i dont have hp screws to slide it in. In the 2nd pic, it shows i removed DVD drive and just placed ssd (its where I think of using tape).
  3. Hi I have Windows 10 Pro on my HP laptop and using Windows defender. I see the Kaspersky AV offering a free version. Should I really use it or will it impact my laptop in anyway? regards,

    Fastest USB 3.1 SSD memory stick

    Thanks everyone for your replies. My main requirement is that I have a laptop (HP 820 G4) with USB 3.1 port. I can't remove/modify internal SSD drive. So my plan is to have the fastest memory stick (not usb passports) so that I can install OS on it and use 2nd OS through it. I intend to use wintousb to install/clone windows 10 onto this fast memory stick. With memory stick, I can move from one place to other with laptop in my hands. It seems Corsair seems to be the option so far. Appreciate better options if any. Thanks!

    Fastest USB 3.1 SSD memory stick

    Hi Could anyone plz advise on the fastest SSD USB 3.1 memory stick (not usb passport/drive)? I see "SanDisk Extreme PRO 128 GB Solid State Flash Drive, USB 3.1(Gen 1)" - is there anything faster than this ? thanks!! https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-Extreme-Solid-State-Flash/dp/B01MU8TZRV/ref=sr_1_4?crid=1YPVSHS9AJ2MI&keywords=usb+3.1+memory+stick&qid=1552584145&s=gateway&sprefix=usb+3.1%2Caps%2C136&sr=8-4

    Please suggest a suitable Graphics Card

    Thanks Eastman, Yep the CPU RAD is exhaust. Asus strix is bit costly for me so might go with Gigabyte (guess it ain't bad) as my Mobo also of same make. I found 4 1080ti models by Gigabyte alone, not sure which one to buy. Could anyone please suggest the best one among - https://www.amazon.co.uk/GIGABYTE-GeForce-Turbo-Express-Graphics/dp/B072X3PVJM/ref=sr_1_6?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1541533617&sr=1-6&keywords=gigabyte+1080ti&refinements=p_89%3AGigabyte https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-NVIDIA-GeForce-Express-Graphics/dp/B06XXC4J6T/ref=sr_1_4?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1541533617&sr=1-4&keywords=gigabyte+1080ti&refinements=p_89%3AGigabyte https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-NVIDIA-GeForce-Express-Graphics-x/dp/B06XWXQX6T/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1541533617&sr=1-2&keywords=gigabyte+1080ti&refinements=p_89%3AGigabyte https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-Geforce-GeForce-GTX1080-Internal/dp/B074N9Q5W3/ref=sr_1_5?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1541533617&sr=1-5&keywords=gigabyte+1080ti&refinements=p_89%3AGigabyte Thanks!!

    Please suggest a suitable Graphics Card

    Thanks DVA. IF I buy 1080ti, do I need to improve my case cooling? OR would the fans come with Graphics card suffice?? Also, which make is the best for 1080ti? Asus / gigabyte/Evga? It seems Gigabyte are the cheapest? As mentioned in my initial post, I'm using Corsair H115i for CPU cooling and 3 140mm case fans.

    Please suggest a suitable Graphics Card

    Thanks everyone with your expertly & swift suggestions. I'm thinking of £500 as budget for this. It seems I might get 1080 but NOT 1080ti with my limited budget. What are the main differences between 1080 vs 1080ti? Best,
  9. Hello friends, My machine specs: AMD threadripper 1950x Gigabyte X399-AORUS-Gaming-7 Gskill 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 (8x4GB to take advantage of quad channel) Corsair H115i (was considering Enermax LiqTech TR4 360 but as it was not of great support and reputation, so skipped it) Some old Nvidia card (256MB VRAM maybe?) Samsung 500G NVMe EVO 960 Seasonic 850W focus 80 gold PSU Fractal design R6 Case This machine works great and I have been using it mainly for some CPU-intensive jobs on Linux. I plan to use to for gaming with Windows 10 OS (as dual boot). I don't have any latest monitors (have some 19" Flatron of 4-5 years old). I have LG OLED 55" Smart 4k HDR TV. Can I use this as monitor for my system? (it has 4 HDMI ports) if yes, could anyone please suggest appropriate Graphics Card (few options would be best to choose from) to fit in my Threadripper machine? Thanks!!

    Cheapest RAID solution please!

    Yes it can, as I have x399 aorus gaming, I think it has 8 or 10 SATA ports.

    Cheapest RAID solution please!

    Thank you for your detailed reply. But I'm looking for a "cheap solution" as mentioned in my original post. Thanks everyone!!

    Cheapest RAID solution please!

    Yes I'm using Win10 and looks like "Storage spaces" exactly does what I need. Thanks again...

    Cheapest RAID solution please!

    Thank you for this interesting idea, will look into it. After I setup s/w raid, would I be able to move these drives to another desktop (just in case) with same OS and get data access?
  14. Bateman1950x

    Cheapest RAID solution please!

    Yes please. As I mentioned in my original post, "redundancy" is a must. thanks!
  15. Hello friends, I have a desktop with Threadripper 1950x on X399 AORUS Gaming 7 Motherboard with BIOS ver. F3g (one year old) and is perfectly working fine. After this BIOS version, there're 3 new versions and the latest is F11e. https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X399-AORUS-Gaming-7-rev-10#support-dl-bios Should I really need to update to latest version or just ignore it? Did anyone update to latest and faced any issues? Is it possible to revert in case of any issues? Please advise... Thanks!!
