    Download Crystal Disk Info. If the SMART Status is anything other than good, back up your data and buy a new drive.

    SenKa got a reaction from Gorgoroth in Bought WD Red   
    WD Red's are overkill for home use, but that isn't a horrible thing.
     
    They last forever, I've had great experiences with them. I recently purchased an EasyStore 8TB to shuck the drive out of (which is cheaper, since Easystores go on sale often. I found a killer deal. The high capacity Easystore's use WD Whites, which are WD Reds.). The only issue with shucking is you usually need to tape off Pin 3 on the power connector or use a molex to sata power adapter.
     
    Good luck on your WD Red!

    SenKa got a reaction from Fasauceome in What does a good mouse really feel like?   
    As others have said, pretty subjective.
     
    To me, my GSkill Ripjaws MX-780 is a really friggin good mouse, since It is a left handed configurable gaming mouse, really light, has extra buttons in really useful places, and tracks perfectly.

    I've been browsing around forums for years now, LTT has probably been the best in terms of combatting toxicity. There isn't even a ton to begin with, which is equally nice.

    SenKa got a reaction from TheRandomness in HD 7970 sort of working   
    Then try the oven method, which should reflow the whole card. It will likely fix the issue temporarily, if it comes back the GPU core is bad. If it stays fine, it was simply a cracked solder joint (likely if the card experienced a physical shock).

    SenKa got a reaction from Pascal... in How Did You Get with Your Girlfriend (or Boyfriend)?   
    Met my fiancee online almost 5 years ago (iFunny, then kik. We kept losing contact and re-meeting on different apps). We were always dating other people we weren't happy with, but neither of us had the heart to leave our partners. One day we were both single, and we spent the whole day chatting and dropping hints the either weren't catching on to.
     
    And when I say one day we were both single, it was only one day. We asked each other out at the same time at probably 11PM that same day. We had known each other for 2 years at the time and have been happy since!

    Thread got bumped, time for story time with Senpai!
     
     I haven't had much time with tech illiterates as I've moved schools and am in a much techier place now. But that doesn't mean I don't have any gold.
     
    I was selling my buddy an AM3 PC for next to nothing since I literally had it sitting around, and couldn't sell it to anybody even at the next to nothing price I was asking. I had bought it for $20 only because it had an AIO in it I robbed for my main system. I had my buddy (who isn't very good at tech) look up how to install a Hyper 212 evo and do it, as I was busy and wouldn't have been able to do it for weeks if not months. He installs it, and the system stops posting.
     
    He texts me saying that he did as the video said, and it wasn't posting. I'm like aight, his moms car is pretty bad and probably shook stuff around. I tell him to remove the RAM and CPU, and reseat both, and to watch videos on how to do both.
     
    Still isn't posting. So I tell him to hold tight and i'd drive over when I get the chance.
     
    Drive over, check the system out. All looks good, I pull the cooler off and the CPU falls off and on to my hand. I knew the socket on the board was a lil weak so I go to put it in thinking all is well, but it doesn't go in all the way.
     
    I kid you not, every pin was bent. Every. Fucking. Pin.
     
    I order a new CPU, offering to pay for it myself, and come back next week to install it.

    Cpu comes in, board still isn't posting. Now, the board is dark as is his room, so I couldn't see this until I grabbed my phone's flashlight to check for fuckups.
     
    The entire PCB around the mobo is cracked. Stress fractures everywhere. I just put the system down and took a walk. Came back and had to break the news that he fucked it bad.
     
    Sadly I didn't have another AM3 board, so the sale fell through and I payed him back for the cooler since he couldn't return it.
     
    Aaaand from that point on I never let a customer touch their own system before they pay for it.

    I was helping my neighbor pair a bluetooth speaker and I asked her about an old Macbook Air she had laying on a wicker basket on her patio (yep, just laying there).
     
    I asked her if she had issues with it running hot, and if she wanted my Macbook Pro as a trade (she didnt care about the Air, I wanted something lighter than my old Pro).

    Her response was, word for word, "Oh no, Macbooks don't overheat. They have cooling fans."
     
    This was the day Linus reviewed the Core i9 macbook. I just chuckled and changed topics.

    SenKa reacted to Princess Luna in Do limited edition cards have better chips?   
    HoF uses binned chips, the 2080 Ti chip on it is the same "A" label you get on the Founders Edition cards.
     
    AIBs can buy the special "A" binned chips from nVidia it's just more expensive than normal chips so usually only the highest end models will carry it alongside obviously the Founders Edition cards.

    Aight, I'll finally bite. Though, since my coming out story is boring I'll tell the story of when I realized I was pan!
     
    This was my freshman year of highschool, just off of a bad break fup and feeling spiteful. When I say bad break up, I mean bad breakup. Cops had to be called and everything. Really not good.
     
    I had met my girlfriend from a mutual friend group, which included a rather tall and very flamboyant gay guy. Always thought he looked good, not in a gay way, just a solid looking guy. He was single and used to say he envied me and ex's relationship.
     
    My Ex loved this guy like her brother, and as I said one day I was feeling spiteful and made out with him right in front of my ex. I was expecting a negative response from her, which I sadly didn't get, not in person anyways.
     
    But then I realized I actually liked what I had done. After some thought I asked him out, and we dated for a couple months before I left the school. After that we just sorta drifted apart cause I didn't have any social media or real way to talk to him.

    It's a dead fan. You can plug in a 3 in fan to a 4 pin header no problem. The 4th pin is just for finer RPM control.
