  1. Hi, I'm a bit concerned with the way my wraith prism cpu cooler is spinning. It appears to be going forwards, stopping briefly, and then backwards. It's extremely loud and the speed in general seems erratic and inconsistent. Any help would be greatly appreciated! VID_20200914_022853.mp4
  2. Unfortunately I don't have a test pc. And it's a Windows boot up, not Linux. When I originally put in the usb with Windows installation media on it it worked and I was selecting language etc etc, then it crashes 2/3rds through install and everytime I boot I get the error message.
  3. No, it doesn't boot into a Linux usb drive. And I've reset the bios multiple times with no success.
  4. I got the Windows 10 setup about 2/3rds done, then my pc crashes and I'm greeted with a black screen and "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key". I've changed the boot order to prioritize the USB with Windows 10 media on, and still nothing. Believe me, this has been over a week of trying absolutely everything and getting absolutely nowhere!
  5. My pc has a virus. I used the Windows 10 installation media tool to attempt to regain access to my pc by booting a clean install of Windows - It didn't work. I've come to terms with this... BUT hopefully it's not to much damage caused... According to BullGuard: [But] today malware can theoretically infect all parts of a computer including: The firmware of your keyboard, mouse, webcam, speakers and so on. Firmware is software that is embedded in a piece of hardware. Devices that you might think of hardware such as a router, a camera, or a scanner also have software (firmware) that is programmed into a special memory contained in the hardware itself. The BIOS (basic input/output system) system. This is the program a computer's processor uses to get the computer system started after you turn it on. The BIOS also manages data flow between the computer's operating system and devices attached to the computer such as a keyboard, mouse and printer. My questions: 1. is it safe to use components of a pc that has a virus, in another system? 2. If so, what components. Would I only need to replace the storage devices, and/or the motherboard too? Weird questions I know. Thanks in advance.
  6. Why don't you think it's a good choice?
  7. The board does seem good value for money, here: https://www.box.co.uk/90MB1170-M0EAY0-ASUS-TUF-Gaming-X570-Plus-(WI-FI)-Mother_2643432.html there's a very nice promotion too. I will reconsider the wattage of the PSU and go for a 550-650w. As for 4th gen what's the chances that it will stay within budget? Thanks again!

I'm struggling to choose a motherboard, all I know is that I need one with WiFi - I've narrowed it down to X570 or B550 boards. But, I must select a board within my remaining budget (£100-200). I am too considering downgrading from a rtx 2070 super to a rtx 2060 super (saving me around £100). Storage isn't terribly important at the moment (hence only 500gb, as I don't tend to have a lot of high storage games installed at once) plus I can wait a few months, perhaps until Nov-Dec, and wait for the wallet to recover, just a little, before picking up a 1tb hdd. Also, I've heard amd are bringing out new CPUs in September, and Nvidia are bringing out new GPUs - can I expect the price of the Ryzen 9 3900x and rtx 2060 super/ 2070 super to drastically fall? will it be worth hanging on to purchase them toward the end of September once both companies bring out their new product line? Thanks in advance for your feedback and help!! Oh and I don't know if a 750w PSU is overkill or not...
