  1. But this does NOT happen on any of my HTPCs or MacBook or Windows laptop, only on WIndows Desktop. This profile is synced on all of those and no issues.
  2. Hi, i have a curious one, at least it is to me. I have maybe 6 computers, both Macs and Windows. This one happens on one of them. My Desktop PC. In Chrome, some websites just refuse to load, showing Err_connection_reset. Affected websites usually are youtube, paypal, messenger and such. This occurs ONLY after i sync my google account with Chrome. If i open incognito mode, this stops happening. If i use different PC/Mac with synced same account - this doesn't happen. I already tried most of usual troubleshooting, such as DNS, Proxy, extensions etc etc. Why does this happen only after Sync, and why only on one PC? Thanks for the answer
  3. Thats a bit annoying. Since 660p is cheaper then all proper SATA drives. If i were to switch mobos. Please check this one, if i didnt missed anything again. https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/B450M Pro4-F/index.asp#Specification
  4. God dammit. That slipped past me. Thank you. What now though, get a different Mobo or change the NVMe for SATA.
  5. Gigabyte B450M S2H, i tried 3 versions of BIOS. I have the current now (F50).
  6. Tried a lot of BIOSes, not even F50 works. 660p works in other PC so it should be fine. BIOS is configured correctly to my knowledge.
  7. So i am putting together new HTPC, as always. I have Gigabyte B450M S2H mobo with athlon 3000G. But i have a problem with Intel 660p drive, it isnt recognized anywhere, nor in BIOS (F41) nor in windows installer. I tried everything that came to my mind. Also if i put it in anouther PC, the drive works as usual. Any ideas?
  8. Hello everybody, i am building yet another HTPC, this time i want to run windows 10. My other HTPCs run Win7 with W media center. But my country is switching to DVB T2 as a new standard. I want to ask you, what programs and their plugis/servers (Kodi) etc are best for streaming TV and recording?
  9. Thanks for the long response, i will try lot of configurations, and report what worked best. Area above the PC is more or less well ventilated, yes. Also i did not understand this sentence "Unfortunately it's not really possible to get 120mm or 140mm vents for PC case fans"? What vents do you mean.
  10. PSU is in the shroud, but fan is on the inside, there is ofcourse a perforated area so the PSU doesn't choke. Hence is lowers pressure. In the past I tested PSU both ways, but fan IN was always better. I might change it after u put those fans there just to see. Also the PSU only that's blowing air then both CPU and GPU are in use. So I think it helps keeping the warm air out.
  11. Oh thanks god, i was thinking a i must have overlooked something. Glad it is not the case. Well, i think ,my 5255 i all i can do with this shitty mobo and air cooler, i am calling it quits. Good luck to you tho.
  12. If you don´t render videos or 3D models etc, the 3700X might be a better value
  13. 1)¨Noctua is better then most AIOs and wait more future safe. 2) You might not need 32gb right now, but i recommend it. I personally use around 20gb of RAM. 3) 2070 Super is probably best bang for the buck, in the higher GPU space. 4) As your system SSD, use something really good, like this EVO PLUS.

  14. Oh, also PSU fan is on the inside, so that is another negative fan. I will figure it out. I was just bored on a public transport so i asked heh.
  15. Actually this GPU is so damn quiet, i´m very impressed. Thats the point, if i put the top right fan blowing out, it becomes negative pressure. The GPU is quiet but eats up so much air, i will be puting Venturi HF 14 down there, it has great flow rate.
