  1. It's highly unlikely that your motherboard has an issue. You should make sure that the battery is correctly installed again and go back into the BIOS, set your XMP profile again and make sure you save the settings. And the score of 9032 is just fine for that CPU. Just like the FPS in Rust. The 8700K is a much better CPU for gaming.
  2. Printers... I remember those! They were a thing in the 90s right?
  3. It basically means to take a metal object, usually a screwdriver, and bridge the contacts that your power button cable connects to. Your power button does exactly the same. Here's even a video:
  4. Take out the drive and turn the PC on. At this point it should throw you into the bios basically instantly, because it can't find a boot device. Or at least tell you that and you can then press a key to enter the bios. What you want to see is, whether anything changes or not. If nothing changed and you still have to wait for an eternity, then turn of the machine again, and take out RAM sticks and try different slots. I'm really hoping for the issue to be fixed at this point, but if it isn't, then there's either an issue with another piece of hardware or maybe,
  5. One slots has a width of 18.5mm. So technically 3/4 of a slot should be ~12.75mm. So if you have space for another 13mm, then you should be fine.
  6. Should be an issue that comes up during POST then. (power on self test). But to be sure, I recommend you disconnect your drive and see what happens. It should throw you right into the BIOS without having to wait, when it's disconnected. If it doesn't, you can be sure that something is wrong with your hardware. At this point I'd take out all RAM sticks apart from one and see what happens. It's most likely some RAM compatibillity issue.
  7. Can you access the BIOS during that time or do you also have to wait for that to be accessible?
  8. In this case the width, but 2.75 slots is just as dumb of a measurement. For some reason EVGA decided that real measurements are simply too accurate. Edit: After looking at the picture, I don't think it will fit.
  9. I have no idea. I'm not sure, but I think Chrome Remote Desktop also works without a display attached. But that's really only for basic access. Latency and quality aren't great.
  10. You can use parsec, but you will need a headless HDMI adapter. Once they're plugged in they basically pretend to be a display. They only cost around $5. They look like that:
  11. 2.5 slots isn't exactly a very precise measurement. If you want to make sure, you take the depth of the new video card and measure it against the depth of your old card.
  12. You could connect it back to that other PC of yours and try installing Windows on the drive through that. Maybe then it'll come back around and show up in the BIOS of your laptop. I'm not sure if that will actually change anything, but sometimes hardware issues don't make any sense.
  13. Do you already have a motherboard that's compatible with the 10700K? If not, then maybe consider checking out the 3800X and 3800XT. But if you already have a motherboard, then that seems like a decent price for the chip. When it comes to CPU coolers, there are a lot of good options. Arctic has some really nice budget coolers like the Freezer 34. If you want to go all out, then consider a Noctua NH-U12S or NH-U12A. There are also lots of good offerings inbetween from Scythe and be Quiet. PSU prices seem to go up, but I was lucky to find a good deal on a be Quiet Str
  14. I'm not denying that. I own two Samsung 850 Evos personally. They were certainly worth the money. Yup, I'm sure there's a reason. Whether it's actually good or not, is something that needs a little more discussion than I'm willing to get involved in. Because assumptions can be wrong? That would be a high bar to set for yourself, considering your own post. On top of that, how exactly does that contribute to the topic?
  15. To be honest that makes me rather mad. The amount of trust people put in market leaders is ridiculous. It's the same with Amazon, Apple, Google and so on... At the end all we're going to end up with, are giant monopolies that f*ck us 10x harder than the ones before that. The best solution is to make customers aware of what they have to look out for when buying a product. Basically they need to make more informed buying decisions. But I guess well-informed people are something I can only wish for in this day and age.
