  1. A lot of people are having difficulty with these cards, but many are doing just fine. But there is definitely a problem with these cards because there is a lot more widespread issues than normal. AMD is having trouble reproducing these issues as well as reviewers. I think that they should try building a bunch of systems using old and new components, different brands/models, different monitor setups using different resolutions, refresh rates, different display connectors and clean/dirty installs of different versions of Windows 10 and then run a variety of games on these systems as a sort of driver quality/stability stress test. Maybe run them for a week or so, have little "tournaments" on them playing various old and new games and mess around with the Radeon Software features while testing (turning FreeSync/Enhanced Sync on and off, using ReLive, Radeon Image Sharpening, GPU Scaling, different pixel formats, etc...). Maybe this will help them to reproduce at least some of the issues.
  2. That is very strange. It shouldn't cause your computer to blue screen. It seems that your laptop thinks that something is wrong (overheating, too little power, etc...) and is throttling the CPU to it's lowest speed.
  3. OK those settings look good. Download ThrottleStop and check what it says in the monitoring side. Post a screenshot of the ThrottleStop window while the computer is under load.
  4. Have you installed the correct drivers for your SATA AHCI controller and for the NVMe drive (if it has drivers on Gigabyte's website)? Does the issue happen when copying to another drive as well? (as @IAcKI asked)
  5. Is the system using the Balanced or High Performance power plan? Have you checked that the maximum CPU frequency option is set to 100% in the advanced power plan options? Is the system running on battery power or is it plugged in?
  6. Can you check the temperature of the drive to make sure that it is not overheating? It might be overheating and then throttling itself to a standstill until it cools down.

    Operating System

    You probably need to load special disk controller drivers for the disks to be seen during Setup. If you go to the support and driver downloads website for your specific laptop there should be a driver there for something like SATA that is called an "F6 driver" or a setup driver. This is the driver that you need to load during Windows XP setup. You must put it on an optical disc and insert the disk after pressing F6 at the prompt when Setup loads.
  8. It looks like a cache is filling up and then being synced all at once. Does the Windows file copy dialog show a decrease in speed?
  9. It could be a broadcast storm or something similar to that. Make sure that protection for things like broadcast storms are enabled on the switches and router.
  10. No it shouldn't need to be unless you are going to access potential malware or infected files from the 1st OS, in which case encrypting the second one might prevent that.
  11. It depends what cases are available in your region and what your budget for the case is.
  12. It is not OK for the rig to be thermal throttling, not with that cooling at least. You should avoid using automatic overclocking utilities. Manual overclocking is the way to go for the best performance with the best temperatures since automatic overclocking utilities usually add unneeded extra voltage. You should reset your BIOS to defaults and then apply the XMP profile and test the temperatures. You can then watch some manual overclocking guides to overclock your system if you want to or if you are comfortable to do so. One last thing, you could maybe rearrange your case fans so that you have either an equal amount of intake and exhaust fans or 1 more intake than exhaust as neutral/positive case pressure is better than negative case pressure - especially when it comes to dust build-up.
  13. When you say that the secondary OS is useless, do you mean that you want to test malware in that OS? If they are both they same OS (Windows and Windows for example) then yes it could infect the other OS as well. If you want to test malware then you should consider using an isolated virtual machine with sharing and network access disabled.
  14. What temperatures does it run at, exactly?
