  1. I only went with 9600k because all the 8+ core CPUs were sold out or drastically overpriced when I bought the parts for my PC. I remember hearing somewhere that high end game developers are developing games optimized for 8 cores/threads so it is kind of a shame I went with a 6 core non-hyperthreaded CPU, but I assume I'll upgrade to a 9900k in a couple years anyways so the i5 9600k was just to me something good to use in the meanwhile.
  2. YES! I found the solution, I had to right click just a little further to the right from where I did in the Disk Manager ^^ When clicking in the big area where it said it was unallocated I had the option to give it a drive letter thus allocating it and now it's available for use again
  3. I converted, checked, rebooted checked and seemingly nothing happened, but now it seems I can re-initialize the disk using the Acron True Image software. I could not do that before, don't remember exactly what happened when I did the "Add new disk" thing earlier, but since the first time I initialized it after having removed it and reinstalled it again I didn't get this initialize option anymore when doing the Add new disk thing with the Acron True Image, now I did as you can see in screenshot, which option should I choose? Last time I chose MBR layout
  4. Back to the good old paint copy pasting for screenshots made it possible It is in Norwegian tho ^^
  5. Ah I see now where you mean, but when i right click there the top 4 options are greyed out (none of them say format, they just say "New something volume"), my options are to either convert to dynamic disk or convert to GPT-disk, Disconnect or go into Properties.
  6. But as you can see it's not showing up under disk management
  7. Hi, once again I need your help Okay so I had some issues with my M.2 NVMe SSD after I did a clean wipe using the manufacturers software (Toshiba SSD Utility Tool), I could no longer boot from my other SSD which is the one I had installed Windows on. I believe this happened because Windows was stupid and chose to partition up my other SSD (not the one I installed Windows on) for it's MSR part or whatever you call it, so when I did a full wipe of what should have been an empty SSD Windows could no longer launch. (Reason I did the wipe was that I was getting a BSOD about half the time when booting up giving me an error I read up on how to remove, but could not remove using the described method...long story short) So I ended up doing a clean wipe of my other SSD as well and reinstalling Windows with only that SSD installed to the motherboard, it's now working fine without BSOD issues. However....of course there had to be more issues....when I reinstalled the Toshiba SSD on the motherboard it's not showing up under My Computer, meaning it's inaccessible and completely useless. I tried going to device management and uninstall the SSD, turn of computer, remove SSD from motherboard, reboot computer, turn it off again, reinstall the SSD, reboot, check for drivers, initialize the SSD using Acron True Image, but still it's not showing up The C drive is my other SSD (WD Black 500GB). Please anyone know what else I can try? Please check screenshot for some details
  8. I ended up cleaning out the SSD using the Command Prompt in the Windows Installation Media, "Diskpart", "Sel 0", "Clean". Then reinstalling Windows without having the 2nd SSD installed, hopefully it wont be a problem when I add the 2nd SSD tomorrow, for now the pc is busy at work installing some massive games Also I see Acronis True Image is recommended by ASUS, I assume it's the same thing as Gparted? Anyways doesn't seem like I need it, but maybe later who knows....don't really see a need to partition out my storage for my use tho.
  9. It sounds easy....but how do I download that and wtf is Rufus? ;(
  10. Please dude I'm not a computer engineer, this feels waaaaay too overcomplicated..... I decided to try to setup that GParted thing on my usb flash drive. I read Method A and click on the provided link....there are a bunch of links to a bunch of different softwares "Tuxboot helps you to create a bootable Live USB drive for Clonezilla live, DRBL live, GParted live and Tux2live. It is modified from UNetbootin and runs on both MS Windows and GNU/Linux. You can choose to download the latest version of Clonezilla live, DRBL live, or GParted live ISO/zip file then create the live USB." That sentence hurts my brain, it's just a bunch of softwares I've never heard of before and it says that I can choose to download the latest version of 3 different softwares and then create the live USB....I can....or I must? I read the "Requirements" and my OS is not on there....newest Windows OS there is Windows 7. Damn I give up...I see there is a "Download" link on the menu on the left there...I click there....it says I can download binary executable files....wtf is that?....binary?...binary to me means 01010101000011110010101....that tells me nothing... Dude....this seems way overcomplicated....wtf....is this really necessary?
  11. I don't really need to save any data, it's kinda annoying to delete all the games so I have to reinstall them, but that's just a minor annoyance I guess, of course I would prefer not having to do that, seems so...idk...stupid that it suddenly just stops working like that! GRRR! Why can't it just work like it's supposed to??? But why should I partition it up though? Seems sketchy using some random software to split up and erase stuff on my SSD..feels much more safe to use a Windows tool or maybe I make a bootable device thing from Western Digital as that is the manufacturer of the SSD that I have Windows installed on and use that instead.... But there really isn't any way I can force it to recognize the SSD as bootable within the BIOS? Seems so fucking stupid that it suddenly just stopped recognizing it....man this shits frustrating as hell Okay captain I'll know for next time, do you have a tip for how I fix my issue now tho? Should I format the drive that I've installed Windows and everything on as well and reinstall windows using the windows installation media or is there something else I should try first?
  12. Hi please I need some help here, I'm beyond frustrated at this point I've recently built my first pc and it went well...less than perfect, but I got to install Windows and a bunch of games and game on it for a while. However I did encounter some issues like the occasional blue screen with CPU Fan Error upon boot which I learned was due to using an AIO and sometimes getting that super annoying "error code 0xc00000e" which I've understood a lot of people are experiencing and not able to fix with the suggested fix since they're also getting "access denied" when attempting to "bootrec /fixboot" in the command prompt using a windows installation media. (it's the only fix I can find online and it's everywhere, but I read comments saying they have this same issue as me) I also had an annoyance regarding the pc making me have to select which volume of Windows I wanted to use every time I booted up, but I found a guide showing me how to make that actually remember my preferred volume so I wouldn't have to select it every time. But that made me think the "error code 0xc00000e" issue might have to do with the system still thinking there was an OS stored on my other SSD (I used one brand new one which I installed Windows on and an "old" one I salvaged from my Acer Predator Helios 500 laptop and formatted using the Windows Installation Software before installing Windows on my new SSD, both are M.2). So I went ahead and downloaded the Utility Tool from the manufacturer of that SSD (Toshiba) and used it to erase everything on that SSD (even tho I had already done that earlier with the Windows Installation software I read that it's recommended using a software from the manufacturer to completely erase everything). Here is when the real problem occurred because now my pc is not recognizing any of the drives as bootable devices! Not even the new SSD which I've installed Windows and a bunch of games on! This is where I've gotten beyond frustrated, they are showing up under the PCIe Storage Configuration menu in my BIOS, but not in the "BOOT" menu, however if I have a USB stick plugged in it is showing up. I've tried the automatic startup repair tool on the Windows Installation Media Software, it doesn't work. Should I use the Windows Installation Software from a USB stick I've made into a Windows Installation Media in order to format the SSD I've installed everything on and try to install Windows again or is there something else I should try first? Please help me here, I am getting so frustrated with this and I don't know what to do. Guess I could mention that I have tried swapping the M.2 slots as well as booting with only the SSD that has Windows installed on it, but still I'm just booting straight into the BIOS and it's not showing up as a bootable device. I have an ASUS motherboard btw.
  13. @mariushm Thanks for your reply, you seem to know a lot about this, just the type of guy I wanted to reach asking this question here! So is it the specific controller on my SSD you believe wont heat up or controllers in general on consumer SSDs? I'm asking because this SSD has one of the fastest read/write speeds I could find so if that doesn't qualify for it needing a heatsink, but most new motherboards come with a heatsink, then what does? ^^
  14. So I just learned that SSD's actually prefer writing on higher temperatures so built-in heatsinks for the m.2 slot(s) on your motherboard may actually be detrimental to your SSD and can reduce it's lifespan by as much as 50%! However it may be beneficial to cool specifically the controller part of your SSD so it is recommended you trim down the thermal pad on your heatsink so it only covers the controller part of your m.2 SSD card. So what I wanna ask is how do i recognize the controller part of an m.2 SSD? Specifically I'm interested in knowing what part of this SSD is the controller: https://www.wd.com/products/internal-ssd/wd-black-nvme-ssd.html#WDS500G2X0C But would be good to learn in general how to recognize the controller part of an SSD, not just for me, but also for anyone else who might read this thread.
