  1. It's common practice to leave tWTR_L and tWTR_S on auto and use tRDWR_sg and tRDWR_dg to control them since they are linked together. Lowering the tRDWR timings will automatically lower the tWTR timings. It's an AMD thing. You can disregard that. Cool!
  2. My 9900k's IMC doesn't like odd tCWL. Try 14 or 16? Your tRDWR_xx timings look pretty tight. Try loosening those? Leave tWR and tRTP on auto for troubleshooting since they have minimal impact on performance. Are you using tRDWR_sg/dg to control your tWTR_L/S timmings? As an aside, it looks like you have a single rank single dim per channel setup so you should be able to set all "_dr" and "_dd" timings to 1 since those do not apply to you. Then you can ignore them. If it were me, I'd set everything but primaries on auto to start ruling out problems. And then start settings things systematically until the issue returns. EDIT: Also try setting your DRAM ratio to 100:133. That helped me recently, so might be worth a shot.
  3. There should be a key printed on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop. If there is not, there is software that you can use to find out what your key is from within Windows.
  4. Use this site to create a USB flash drive that you can boot from to start the fresh installation. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 Keep in mind that your laptop may not work properly with Windows 10 since not all devices have compatible drivers. So you should have a plan for reverting back to Windows 7 if you run into problems.
  5. A fresh install of Windows is always preferred over an "upgrade". So what I would do is cancel the upgrade, and install Windows 10 fresh, then activate Windows 10 with your existing Windows 7 product key.
  6. That doesn't make it free, and it doesn't make it harmless. There is a real world cost to running a mining rig. Both the cost of the generation of the electricity, which someone has to pay even if you don't (not to mention the environmental impact), and the opportunity cost of using the hardware and electricity for mining instead of the next best alternative, perhaps folding @ home and a ventilator, receptively. TLDR, I personally find it to be an unethical use of resources to run a bitcoin mining rig, especially since this "subsidy" is due to the current pandemic.
  7. Sounds like your Green channel is not working. What happens when you set to pure Red, Blue, then Green? My guess is this: Red -> Red Blue -> Blue Green -> Nothing
  8. Coil whine in a GPU cannot be solved by changing your PSU. It is a property of the GPU and can become worse over time. See this video from Buildzoid for a detailed explanation.
  9. This transfer will be limited by the HDD read speed.
  10. Unless your ambient temps now are 20-25C hotter than they were 4-5 months ago, there is something wrong.
  11. What case are you using? How many, what size, where, and what orientation are your case fans?
  12. You need to use both types on connectors. In your picture, the two on the left are female/male RGB, and the one on the right is for PWM fan control.
