  1. Good day, In terms of solid state drives, is there any noticeable real world performance differences between the various models that exist and would it justify the price differences? For example, Samsung has their Pro, Evo, and Plus versions etc. The read and write speeds differ by only a few hundred megabytes respectively depending on the model. I have only ever used Crucial MX 500 drives and so I'm wondering how others would perform, especially M.2 NVM-E drives. Any advice is greatly appreciated Regards, leviathan1701

    Rerouting emails to send via different outgoing port

    Many thanks, will give it a shot
  3. Good day, I am posting this inquiry on behalf of my sister. She recently subscribed to a VPN service but has recently discovered that it blocks certain outgoing SMTP ports, which means she cannot send any emails from her account whilst the service is active. Many of you will probably wonder what type of email account she has and that she should rather move to a different one but unfortunately that won't happening any time soon... believe me I've tried. She is using an ISP based email service which unfortunately only uses SMTP on port 25 without any other encryption and authentication options, pretty crappy but that's how it is. I have already contacted the VPN provider to see if they can whitelist the port in question on her account but that is turning out to be a process. I was wondering, is there anything else I could try and do from my side? Perhaps someway of forwarding all emails sent on port 25 to another outgoing port that the VPN would allow through? I've tried to investigate it for myself but its pretty hectic. Any advise is greatly appreciated. Kind Regards, leviathan1701

    BSOD Error When Watching Videos

    Also tried that earlier, unfortunately the issues reoccur. If it is purely a driver issue then surely other users would be experiencing these issues as I doubt I'm the only one combining AMD GPUs and Intel based systems. But regardless, I will RMA the GPU as I'm tired of trying to troubleshoot this. Your assistance is greatly appreciated

    BSOD Error When Watching Videos

    I ran DDU to remove the AMD drivers and the audio returned to normal.

    BSOD Error When Watching Videos

    Put back all the hard drives and the second RAM stick and still no tearing / pixelating or BSOD on onboard graphics. Unfortunately the video dialogue is still virtually absent. I feel like the picture tearing was an indication that something was wrong with GPU visual drivers. Although it doesn't happen with games, only videos. Is it then safe to conclude that something is definitely not right with GPU drivers? What would be my recourse in this situation? Try to return the GPU and go for an Nvidia GPU instead? It also seems that the onboard audio has been affected, how would I go about fixing this?

    BSOD Error When Watching Videos

    Just an update so far, I am running onboard graphics only. I didn't mention this before as I didn't think it was relevant but when I was watching videos using GPU graphics, the picture started tearing and becoming pixelated. But with onboard graphics, that is no longer happening. However, it seems now even when using MPC, the video dialogue has all but been reduced to an echo ( happened with VLC as mentioned in original post). Still testing for BSOD, hasn't occurred yet.

    BSOD Error When Watching Videos

    I haven't overclocked the CPU or the GPU at all. The Core Enhancement was set to auto, which I have now disabled. Left one RAM stick in, just the OS drive and plugged monitor into onboard. Testing it now.. let's see what happens

    Dual Monitor Setup Not Working

    I felt really silly now... I needed to reboot and suddenly the second monitor started working, I cannot explain this as I've tried this numerous times Tthe main display is connected via HDMI with discrete graphics and the other one is via HDMI onboard, which is obviously not the best but is fine for my purposes.I'll consider getting an adapter or cable at some stage but for now I'm relived everything is working now.I appreciate everyone's assistance and my apologies for wasting everyone's time with these unexplainable things...seems to be happening to me all the time, probably just my bad luck

    BSOD Error When Watching Videos

    This is my first GPU as my build is recent. Did not have any previous GPU drivers at all.

    BSOD Error When Watching Videos

    Hello, I am experiencing frequently BSOD errors when watching videos using Media Player Classic. I've used this program for many years without issues. I tried to use a different program such as VLC media player but strangely none of the dialogue is present, I can only hear background, although it doesn't bother me as I don't like using it - just wanted to see if it would also cause the BSOD, which it doesn't. I have also tried earlier versions of MPC, but still results with the error Although my system is Intel based, I recently installed a new AMD GPU as I managed to get it at a really good deal. Now I'm wondering, could there a driver / software conflict between the GPU drivers and the MPC video codecs? Tried earlier versions of the GPU drivers too, same issue occurs. PC SPECS: ASUS ROG STRIX B360-G i5-9600K 16GB DDR4 RAM ASUS RX VEGA 64 8GB OC 256GB SSD 2 x 1TB HDD SILVER FLOWER 850W PSU 80+ SILVER OTHER INFO: Windows 10 Pro x64 Version: 1809 OS Build: 17763.107 OS Age: Reinstalled it a few hours ago OS is OEM System Manufacturer: Custom built BSOD Stop Code: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE ERROR MPC Version: K-Lite Codec Pack: 14.8.8 Standard Any advise is greatly appreciated.

    Dual Monitor Setup Not Working

    Hello again, I have managed to purchase a 850W power supply and connected everything with the new GPU including driver and software installation (ASUS RX Vega 64). I've doubled checked all the BIOS settings - iGPU set to enabled but unfortunately my second screen still isn't working. Tested both HDMI cables and both screens again individually, they all working. Also tested the onboard and GPU HDMI ports individually, also working fine... so at this point I have no idea what is happening. I am trying to output my main display from the GPU HDMI port and the secondary display from the onboard HDMI port. Any further advice is greatly appreciated. Regards, leviathan1701

    Dual Monitor Setup Not Working

    Just an update, I've decided to bite the bullet and spoil myself with a new graphics card instead. I managed to find a very awesome deal on a brand new Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB OC. I have looked at several online wattage calculators to see what the power requirements are and I'm concerned that I might have to upgrade my current 550W PSU. Considering these are only synthetic figures, could I realistically get away with using a 550W or do I absolutely have to upgrade? Several sources say its possible to comfortably use a 550W and others say definitely not. Summary of Specs: CPU: i5-9600K MOBO: Asus ROG Strix B360-G MONITORS: Dell SE2717HLG 22MP48HQ-P SORAGE: 256GB Crucial 2.5" SSD RAM: 16GB Crucial Ballistix @2333Mhz Two Internal 1TB HHD @ 7200RPM Rest of the peripherals are pretty standard I would say. Any further advice is greatly appreciated. Regards, leviathan1701
