    SDD/HDD Configuration Help

    Manual says 6 SATA connectors. So if you lose 2 with the M.2 being used, you still have 4 left. What PSU do you have, should have enough SATA power connectors on it.
  2. Definitely OC that thing as well as learn punctuation. Should be able to attend a school or even just watch a few YouTube videos on how it's done. Not sure if they have schools where you live. Gigabyte has a good guide on OCing at 5GHz, with explanations. It's fairly easy to hit if you have a good cooling solution for it.

    Formatting Windows USB

    When you right click the volume, you don't see Format? Or you can't right click? What EXACTLY happens when you right click? Or post a pic of them showing in Disk Management, that may shed some light.

    Formatting Windows USB

    If they show up in Disk Management, you should be able to right-click the volumes and Format from there.

    Laptop getting hot

    You don't need to do anything. Leave it alone, enjoy the laptop as it is. It's not going to burst into flames, melt, or die in 4 days. Stop buying into the hype and fear.

    Laptop getting hot

    85c is fine for a laptop, they're built with much less airflow and cooling than a desktop. It's a fine temp to game at, when doing specific tasks. Don't reapply thermal paste to a laptop, unless it's obvious that something is wrong. Nothing is wrong, your machine is running as it was built to run. A high performance laptop runs hot, it's how things work.

    My first gaming pc

    Why the 7700K over the 8700K or 2600X?

    Need input on these specs

    8700K or better. I'd cut the 970's out and put in 860's or similar. You don't need NVMe. Less PSU too. More GPU.

    Need input on these specs

    Really solid build, I just have an issue with almost every other main component costing more than the CPU. 970 EVOs are wasted on gaming. Watercooling that CPU is a waste, the stock cooler does great. Unless that CPU is just a placeholder for the next gen, that PC is priced for an Intel OC'd to death setup.

    Wont even boot into bios

    Clear CMOS by removing the battery on the motherboard.
  12. Can you not go look at monitors in person?

    RTX 2080 TI saggy

    It's fine, you'll probably not notice it much with the side panel back on, it'll blend in.

    RTX 2080 TI saggy

    I own that, it's great.
