  1. Unobtainium or Hsvkinyodh (Hackintosh but I accidently shifted my keys over. Oops XD)
  2. I am confused as to why a GTX 1070 would be struggling... The difference between a GTX 1070 and a RTX 2070 isn't that huge. Why the gap?
  3. Vacuums create static charge. Not a good idea. That is why blowers are preferred. They are not required to get close or touch electronics to do their job.
  4. https://www.amazon.com/Metro-DataVac-500-Watt-0-75-HP-Electric/dp/B001J4ZOAW I use this. Cans of air are expensive, leave behind a residue denatonium benzoate (world's most bitter compound and anti-huffing agent), and loose pressure as they cool. Great for short quick work, but cleaning a computer they are not ideal.
  5. Looks like I got something to check when I get home...
  6. They are also pretty good as well. Though not sure how much experience they have. The bigger companies will have more tools and experience at their disposal. No offense to Louis.
  7. And I will be waiting a bit before upgrading. I do a fresh install when upgrading anyways. Hopefully can avoid these issues.
  8. The following companies I would suggest: Drive Savers Salvage Data We Recover Data If this is a WD external, removing it from its enclosure is not advised. WD drives in enclosures are SED (Self Encrypting Drives) and require special tools to recover the encryption key for data and surface area access. Hopefuly the drive is not in too bad a shape. If sending out for data recovery, the 3 companies above do the following: 1) No data no charge (Salvage Data sometimes has an attempt fee depending on dificulty, but this is rare. Not sure if policy has changed since I worked there...) 2) Free diagnostics and quote 3) I know drive savers doesn't charge for shipping. I cannot remember if the others do as well. 4) They offer financing when needed. Data will not be sent till debt is paid. For a recovery expect to pay between $400-$2000. In rare cases, it can be more. Generally, the longer you are willing wait, the less you pay. The only way to know for sure what the cost is is to send it out. Again, no charge. If you say no, not an issue. They will just ship the drive back. Also, DO NOT OPEN THE DRIVE UP! DATA RECOVERY COMPANIES HATE THAT!!!!!! They will usually charge a previously opened drive fee. Some will downright decline the job. Furthermore, you risk your data if you do! If you live in the US, these companies will also do free shipping both ways if I recall correctly. Either way, not a bad deal. I know drive savers ships you a box, you put your drive in, ship it back.
  9. You will be fine. Trust me, you won't break anything. If a cable broke, things just wont work. No explosions, no fire, no niothing. Just no worky.
  10. Tidy mostly. My actual desk? A nightmare.
