    I am just here to learn from the intelligent tech community (not that I am bad myself, but I don't understand everything). I built my first PC (2019) and it's named Black & Silver (more appropriate color theme). I will post pictures when I am 100% done with the upgrades I would like to perform (CPU fans and RAM). I have some on PCPartPicker but they are not too good.

  1. Don't worry, I am using Malwarebytes Premium. I have it run hyper scans and a custom scan that is pretty much a full scan with a few mods so it won't scream about my Chrome Extensions (Honey, Grammarily, ColorZilla, and Dark Reader).
  2. And there it is again... An unexpected Kernel Power error. Getting so tired of this. I feel like this system is going to die and it isn't even that old. 



  3. Well, my machine has been a pain in the butt. I think one of my DIMM slots died. At least, one and three is still available. Overclocking to 3000Mhz shouldn't do that, should it? Or did I break it when trying to reinstall? The RAM seemed to work fine and the system is not boot cycling.... No memory errors either. The whole situation is quite bizarre.

      The main thing it is working and hopefully nothing else will happen to this poor thing. This thing was an investment. 

  4. The build looks pretty good, but one thing I do recommend is adding a hard drive for mass storage. Storing your OS and most used programs on the SSD should be fine, but adding a drive for other files such as photos, music, and other programs might be favorable. 480GBs can fill up quickly when you add the OS, programs, videos, photos, and music. I recommend at least another 500GB drive and highly recommend 1-2TBs. I don't know what the use case of this computer will be, but buying more storage now may save headaches later. Although, if there is a budget issue, I can understand not getting a hard drive now. And there are some benefits of going all SSD. In the future, I probably will, but I find hard drives still useful for now, as they are the cheapest way to add more storage at the moment. Well, besides cloud storage maybe.
  5. Yeah, they don't draw a lot of power really. What other things are you running? As long as you calculate the wattage for everything else on the system, those hard drives should be very little to nothing. @he11cey Forgot to mention, PCPartPicker is a good website that gives you pretty good readings on what wattage your system will run at. I definitely recommend checking that out. It even calculates everything the wattage for everything you place in the list. Just search the parts you have and add them. Sorry if it keeps on sending notifications, I keep updating it. This should be the last one on this post at least.
  6. I think I have figured out the problem. Old power strip may have had a short, or there was too much strain on the cable or something to due with poor cable management under the desk and cords getting tangled. Something unrelated to the power supply, or so it appeared to me. Testing it now to see if that was the issue. I also updated the bios to 1.06 on my MSI B450 Pro Carbon AC motherboard. And I am going to attempt to have DISM or SFC to repair the corrupted Windows files. Just doing a lot of maintenance to a very recent build, not a fan of this, but I should have expected that some technical work may need to be done from time to time.
  7. Just thought of something else, maybe a cable issue?
  8. I don't know much about power supplies honestly and I am wondering if my power supply has a problem. My system has been randomly rebooting. I know something knocked out the power and ever since it has been behaving oddly. I have it plugged in to a power strip so I think it could be that. But my system even panicked and went into recovery mode, but all was well and my system data is intact and my drives are OK according to S.M.A.R.T and another program Crystal said the drives were at 100% health. I really hope it is not a failing power supply since I have only had the PC since about March-April, it appears to happen every bit or so. If I can replace it before it goes pop then all will be good. Your thoughts? Is it a bad supply of should I check the power strip.

  10. I don't know if ublock origin exists for this browser, I could look into it. All I do know is that Google is planning on banning or has banned ad-block software being used on Chrome. The irony is Google Chrome will block ads on websites that Google finds to have annoying ad practices. I guess Google has to do the demonetizing. I suppose I could switch to something else, but the syncing between devices is so smooth... @Bramimond
  11. Just upgraded to the Corsair Harpoon RGB mouse. No more cheap ONN mouse for my desktop. Will still use it for the laptop I have though. 

  12. Yeah, I didn't dig far enough. It may be worth it but I don't know if I am going to or not.
  13. I was thinking of using a VPN, but I don't see one where you can pay for one year. I am not a fan of monthly payments. Any ideas on this? Maybe I didn't dig far enough?
  14. I don't disagree but that may be a problem seeing as I use Google Chrome. I know, ?.
