  1. It depends quite heavily on how well the screen is glued in. As @MCManiac52 said use a lot of head and you should be able to get it off, from my experience however I don't think you can avoid increasing the size of those cracks. If the glass is quite sturdy maybe, but that usually isn't the case on touch screens like this one. Anyway good luck, hope it all works out!

    About Windows Defender

    Sure, I'm talking about reasonably secure not actually full on impenetrable.
  3. NO, might actually get quite dangerous, especially without removing the battery. Battery + hot oven usually = BOOM!

    About Windows Defender

    It really depends on the user IMO. For everyday Joe, that just uses their computer and isn't really tech savy I still recommend using some kind of additional anti-virus protection because I don't trust them or their judgment. For tech savy people on the other hand I think Defender is enough if you watch what your doing and use common sense. It makes a computer securer, but I don't know if I'd call it secure (shit can happen to anyone really).

    Virus, spyware or something mac

    Wifi: yeah that seems more like a wifi configuration or compatibility problem really and not any virus/malware like activity. Pic: without it happening again and you being able to take a picture, i don't think I can help you any further either. Scan the computer with a trusted anti virus and/or anti malware program and see it it detects something other than that i don't really know anything (except a factory reset - but that's kind of a big leap). If there are any updates I'll look into this again tomorrow, but yeah I have to go to bed as well. Hope you fix it!

    Virus, spyware or something mac

    Sounds kind of strange and sketchy. Any new software installed lately? Check whether there is anything in stalled that you don't know. Normally these redirected homepages and stuff aren't a good sign but I've never actually seen it on a mac. I'm also not really sure if the two are related (no wifi and picture/weird web search). Are you using a hotspot or usb or bluetooth to share your 4g connection?

    Virus, spyware or something mac

    Can you further describe this? First of all are you sure you mean a NASA and not an NSA logo? That would just make more sense IMO, at least if it were something virus/malware related. Secondly do you mean this pops up at boot or after connecting to the wifi and the browser loads that instead of the websites? And lastly, can you by any change provide a picture of this screen? Hope I can help further with more info, but there are still too many unknows right now (at least for me).

    64 Cores - Why Would We DO This??

    Ok that might be true, but do you know if that would result in an error/warning message popping up at or after boot? I however still believe that XeonPhy is a know Family, even if only because of the PCIE compute cards, that use the same architecture.

    Boot issues in Windows 10

    What you also might want/be able to do is check if there are two very similar settings in your BIOS, for example I had a board that boot priority and boot devices or boot order (sorry don't quite know the correct name from the top of my head) where boot order allowed me to select the devices that it should allow to boot from and priority selected the devices with the highest priority out of the other list. What I'm trying to say is that (in my case) even you selected the boot priority correctly, but the device is not in the boot devices list it will pick the other device with lower priority that is in that list. I hope this helps and doesn't confuse you even more!

    64 Cores - Why Would We DO This??

    First of all yes, these are normally run on linux systems. But anyhow (again) AFAIK the system can differenciate between physical and logical cores and can therefore assign each of the 4 threads to a (cpu-)thread on a different physical core. I think the OS can get or request some kind of map from the cpu for the logical to physical mapping and even if it can't it's actually no that hard to do in software either. Since this is a feature provided more or less on a hardware/firmware level or can be done in software no special optimization is actually needed for this "OS feature".

    64 Cores - Why Would We DO This??

    AFAIK probably not, windows is (normally) smart enough to put threads onto different physical processors. given that there are still one with less load available, of which there are plenty in this case.

    Why no cinebench run linus?

    Advice On Cooling setup and temps

    I completely agree, the improvements you are going to see unless you spend a big chunk of money are going to be minor or none. Therefore, I would stick to living with the 80c temps of your GPU, they are designed to withstand such temps.

    Windows Files Messed Up

    This is probably because you enabled "Show hidden folders" and unchecked "Hide protected OS files". These folders have always been there but you have just not seen them.

    Migrating to a RAID array.

    Personally, I would do a complete reinstall and copy your data to a external/backup drive in the time beeing. You could however also make a complete backup und recover from that to the new array. No matter how you do it though you need to backup your data on to a different disk/place because creating the array will format the SSD and erase all data. I would also suggest making a backup a bit more often than once a week because loosing a whole weeks work can be quite a lot, unless you don't have any worthy/important stuff on there.

    Intel Core i7 5820K Giveaway

    I would upgrade mine and then use my parts to build a new one for my sister!

    [HELP]A simple RAM question

    I agree with @SuperPug and Mo5, get 2x8gb for upgradeability in the future.

    intel 320 series for budget or something else

    Sorry didn't know which one The only thing I can think of is to same a couple of bucks and get the Corsair CX 600 (builder series) powersupply instead of the Corsair CX 600M. It will save you about 25$ and the only difference I can see is that it is not semi-modular.

    what are the other parts you are looking at right now?

    You're welcome, I hope you find a something you'll be happy with.

    780 vs 770

    Totally agree here. It really depends on how you value it. For a triple monitor setup I would however go with the 780 because of the more ram and better performance, this however also depends on the monitor resolution.

    intel 320 series for budget or something else

    Maybe have a look at the A-Data SSDs: AData Premier Pro 64 gb (link) or the Kingston SSDNow 60gb (link) or there is a really good deal for the Samsung 840 Evo 120gb right now on Amazon (link). Be aware I haven't used them myself (except 840 evo), but I have heard good things about them. I use a Samsung 840 Evo 250gb myself and I haven't had any problems and good performance.

    intel 320 series for budget or something else

    I think it is ok for someone on a budget and the quality is quite good. Otherwise also look at the corsair one, example Corsair Force 60gb (link). On the otherhand I think you should at least go for a 60gb if not even 128gb drive because even the OS barely fits onto a 30gb drive and if you have to install some larger updates in the future and the sdd is too small, that would kinda suck! (just my opinion) Refrence: -Win 7/8 32bit ~16gb (source) -Win 7/8 64bit ~20gb (source)
