  1. If the two partitions are part of the same drive, then there is nil risk of losing data when combining the two volumes. Coming from someone who had to shrink a W8.1 install on a 500GB WD Blue to fit on a BX100 250GB SSD, I had to re-expand the partition so Windows had access to all 250GB. Didn't lose any data. The situation is different if you're expanding the partition across multiple physical drives.
  2. Nope! It'll just connect the two areas of the disk into one.
  3. Right-click (C:) and hit "Extend Volume". From there you'll be able to allocate the rest of the unused space that's still on the drive and assign it to the active boot partition.
  4. Is there a specific reason why you must use hamachi? In my experience, it's a pretty finnicky software.
  5. Considering that the encryption key is stored on the housing's controller and not on your PC, no. Personally, I wouldn't get an auto-encrypting solution.
  6. Personally, I'm a tad biased, but I like the Corsair K30. It's non-mechanical, but has a nice feel to it, plus has red LED backlighting. A mouse is a little more personal. You'd have to experiment like i had to do.
  7. No. Most modern power supplies have short-circuit protection. As in, as soon as it detects a short, it flips a switch and shuts itself off. Much like an auto-resetting circuit breaker or a GFCI outlet.
  8. Are people really getting updates that frequently that it's interfering with their work flow? I'm on W10 and I get an update once every three weeks. Even then it's set to restart at midnight.
  9. Hello you wonderful people! I've been feeling fairly creative the last few days, so I thought I would try my hand at designing a case. I'd like to know what kind of features you'd like. This would be a full metal chassis, no plastic, although aluminum exterior panels could be a possibility. Of course the color scheme would follow the iconic LTT orange/black in tasteful ways, but again, I'll leave the accent areas up to you. I'll try and put out an example and upload it here by the end of tomorrow.
  10. I... would not go from powercolor. I've heard some raunchy things about their QC.
  11. I'd go with a 500GB boot SSD for most-used applications and frequently used games. As for storage, if budget isn't a concern, I'd do two 2TB WD Red's in RAID-1. 8GB on a system that's going to be doing photoshop and Vegas? I'd go at LEAST 16GB as a minimal. I mean if we're gonna go all-out, a GTX980Ti.
  12. 4GB model. Can't beat having more Vram.
