  1. Sounds like you don't need to do anything if you're happy at 81 degrees and its inside the safe rating. So the only thing to worry about is board flex. What case is this fitted inside? I'm guessing this is a push pull exhaust rather than push pull intake?
  2. You can set explicit deny permissions for one of the administrator accounts but they can override those settings. What might be a better option is to create a new partition and use bitlocker with a password to protect it.
  3. I think the Macbook 2015 can run NVME SSDs. You could maybe pop a Sabrent Rocket in there or an adata xpg sx8200 pro. I'm double checking compatibility now though. *Edit Update* looks like people have done it using Sintech nvme adaptors.
  4. That sounds well within safe ranges. Hopefully the GPU isn't developing a fault.
  5. Yes, but I thought we were assuming the room is a non variable and the heating units were being changed. If you're losing 750w per hour of thermal energy from a room and heating it with 1500 watts your gain per hour will still be 750w regardless of heater design. The heat has to go somewhere no extra power can be found or lost. The amount of thermal energy inside those 4 walls will be the same. You may perceive the room to be warmer or colder but thats more down where the warm air in the room is.
  6. Don't suppose there's an option to disable the onboard GPU in the bios to see if the problem goes away?
  7. Might be an idea to look at the temperatures on your GPU. I've seen GPUs black out then come back up again with overheating, I changed the T-Paste and it fixed the issue.
  8. The 4 pin connector is likely a Molex connector and has pretty much been phased out. You'll get no benefit from connecting the SATA power cables in any particular order though, other that possibly being more tidy.
  9. If you download NZXT's CAM software you can monitor your computers temps and frequencies from your smartphone. That could be a better way of seeing what its doing without needing to alt tab out.
  10. What are you trying to figure out here? If its what the OS sees the drive numbers as being, its determined by what port the SATA data cables are connected to in the motherboards SATA controller and normally starts from 0
  11. You'll get better bandwidth as you'd have more NAND chips working in parallel with larger overall capacity SSDs
  12. Technically it does, otherwise the meat wouldn't cook at all. Heat is being pulled from the CPU shield to the meat. If you kept replacing the meat with fresh bits it would still be better than nothing. (Ignoring the water build up which will kill the board)
  13. If all you're interested in is gaming, the performance gain is insignificant, based on the real world results I've seen.
  14. If you put 1500W of thermal energy into a room, you put 1500W into a room. Doesn't matter what brand or design it is. It will ALWAYS be the same. The only reason you might get different results is if the device is not producing the power it advertises, or the design of the heater moves hot air way from its origin.
