  1. I installed a new CPU and motherbaord in my system. They are the 9700k CPU and Asus rog Z390-H motherboard. Ever since installing them, I keep getting blue and screens and computer freezes. Examples of blue screen errors that have show up are SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION I've completely re-installed windows and all drivers so that I know it isn't a software issue. I mainly seem to get issues when running games or other more performance intensive workloads. Things I've tried so far: Doing a disk check - nothing came up Memory check - nothing came up See if I could force it to happen with synthetic workloads - the errors seem to be random Any suggestions on what to try next would be greatly appreciated! I don't habe any spare hardware, so swapping things out wont be an optoin for me.
  2. Just checked both my drives and there are no issues, as for RAM, I don't have any other sticks I can try
  3. I have 2 drives, the OS is installed on a 240GB SSD, 1TB HDD for mass storage.
  4. So I installed a new motherboard and CPU in my system. I go the i9 9700k and Asus Strix Z390-H motherboard to go with it. Sometimes when booting up, the computer doesn't start first time and will freeze randomly when playing games, or I sometimes get blue screened. I don't think temperature is the issue. I have a Corsair H150i cooling my CPU. Just wondered what anyone could have to say about this issue.

    Audio Technica at2020 plus vs Blue Yeti

    Is there any difference between AT2020 and AT2020 plus in terms of sound quality? Or is it just the features on the mic itself?
  7. So I'm buying a microphone for streaming and these were the 2 that looked best to me. Was wondering which of the 2 people would recommend, or maybe there is something you would recommend around that price point.

    Is 550w enough?

    I'm building a new system with: i5 6600k Asus strix 1070 Would the Corsair cx550m be good for this? Apart from the factory over clock on the GPU, I have no intentions of over clocking myself. So is 550w enough?

    Headphones up to £250

    I'm looking for some new headphones and my price range is up to £250. I listen to a lot of EDM (electronic dance music) so I like having good base, this being said I don't want the bass to overpower the mid-high end. I currently have Audio Technica ATH-M50's and have been happy with the sound. My biggest problem with them was to clamping pressure, they became painful to wear after about 2 hours of use. I have looked into the Sennheiser HD 8 DJ's and found they too have a high clamping pressure. I'm wondering what other people would suggest I get.
