  1. Well, to anybody still listening here: we double-checked the saved data and everything is fine, no corruption, after this, my friend threw out this faulty SSHD and got himself a 1TB 3D NAND SSD, so he's set up quite nicely now. Thank you everyone for the input.
  2. Had him take a screenshot. He also noted that the power on / off cycles didn't change since yesterday so I suspect something might off there. For reference, I checked my laptop which shows 12985 cycles in 165 days, his brother's shows 132010 in 2 years. Maybe laptop hard drives are just this special... He saved about 40GB worth of personal data yesterday, all seems to be intact, he didn't notice anything missing or getting corrupted. As for physical damage, I'm unsure. He doesn't remember any major bump or anything like that, he mostly uses his laptop at home. I know th
  3. Thank you all for the input! However, I believe that 65k on/off cycles are still too high for 2 years of operation. His default settings were 10 mins off battery and 20 when plugged in. I've just checked the settings on my desktop and this feature is also enabled for me (and I assume it has been for years) yet I have much lower on/off cycles. Since September last year I got a second SSD so at the moment I'm only using my HDD for mass storage, no apps, which means that I don't use it that often. I'll keep an eye on my HDD to see at what speed my cycles increase now that my HDD is used less
  4. Hello everybody, a friend of mine has an Asus gamer laptop (i7 + 1050Ti) which he bought a little over two years ago. The laptop's storage solution is a 256GB m.2 SATA SSD and a 1 TB 2.5" SSHD. Today he approached me with a problem that mid-game, his game crashed and his whole system locked up. Eventually he managed to close the game, only to realize that his entire Drive D was missing from Windows, and most of his apps weren't working. A reboot managed to fix the problem but his laptop is acting weird ever since, and now that he's paying more attention to the laptop, he can hear t
  5. My friend reported no thermal related problems, but he has a Noctua cooler.
  6. I came to a similar conclusion that maybe a delidding would help. I know a guy who has the tools and does it so I will send it over. Even if ultimately something else ends up being the problem (other than a broken CPU lol), a fresh tim would only do good. I bought that cooler 5 years ago but it never crossed my mind that the paste could expire in that tube. To be honest, my i5 3570k had the same paste on since then, I never got myself to replace the paste as the temps remained pretty much the same throughout the years. When I got the tube out two days ago, the paste coming out s
  7. Yes and yes. I already remounted the cooler twice, everything seems to be alright, the paste is spread out evenly in a nice circle. And both the BIOS and Windows picks it up as a 4790k. Yet I keep coming back to the cooler. I've just noticed something. Even after letting the AIDA stress test run for 10 minutes and technically boiling my CPU at 100°C, the cooler is blowing out cold air and the heatpipes are cold to the touch, even close to the socket. So something seems to not transmit the heat properly, but I checked out the cooler twice already, it's mounted fine, it's firm, th
  8. I reset the bios settings, did everything short of a CMOS clear. And as I wrote in the thread, I have a CM412S with an Arctic F12 Pro PWM fan.
  9. Hello everybody, my best friend just upgraded his computer and decided to give me his old hardware because he knows that I can't afford anything new for my PC. I know that the 4790k is an outdated chip (just watched Steve's new video on it) but it's still an upgrade to my old 3570k, low-end Z75 mobo and 8GB of RAM, plus it was for free, so why not install it? Next to the CPU itself, I got an ASRock Z97 Extreme 4/3.1 motherboard and a 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 2400MHz DDR3 kit. After installing this "new" hardware, I did a few system stability tests and it
  10. I need to look into something cheaper...170€ is simply impudent.
  11. I've been waiting for this mouse to come out since its first reveal. In the meantime my current mouse is dying on me (half of the buttons aren't even working anymore ). What really bothers me that there are barely any updates on these stuffs, apparently they were announced for November 2015 then Q1 2016 and what now? If this think won't come out in like a month I'll have to go for the Corsair Scimitar...seeing the price it would cost me half as much anyways what the hell is 140€ in a mouse?
  12. Hey, I've built a new PC for my grandma (for internet, some movies, light Windows Movie Maker editing) and after the building I proceeded to Windows install. Here I have to admit that I wanted to install a pirated Windows on her PC because she didn't have the money for a clean Windows. I already had a pirated Windows 8.1 burnt on a DVD but I wanted to try Windows 10, I was like: If it works, huzzah, if it doesn't then install the good old Win 8.1. So I downloaded a pirated Windows 10 Pro x64 and burnt it to a DVD. After this I put the DVD into the DVD ROM of the new rig and it immediately told
  13. I don't have a bathtub at home and I don't have the budget to get one. If I put it under my showerhead whould it cool the PC properly?
  14. Hey! I have an i5 3750k with an Asrock Z75 Pro 3 motherboard. Sofar I've been using the stock cooler which well got the job done but it's really loud and during gaming I get temps around 70-75°C which is probably not to good over a longer term. So I've decided to replace it with something more capable. I have the budget of 12.000 HUF which should be around 40 USD however I can spend some extra if needed. I was looking at some aftermarket coolers and the CM Hyper 212 Evo seems like a great cooler but I've seen some other nice ones. Most notably the CM Hyper 412S which has about the same price a
  15. Yeah I just checked it. I bought it because it was really cheap due to a discount. I didn't even think that this might be the problem. Thank you for enlightening me! I'll get a new one immediately. Can you recommend me something with good quality? I thought about this: A-Data DashDrive Elite UE700 64GB AUE700-64G-CBK.
