  1. Looking to step up my storage efforts after a series of recent drive failures. I've just picked up a Macbook Pro which has a 1TB SSD as my primary machine now and am looking at setting up a NAS for media and file storage/management as well as backups. I value power and ease of use (also want something professional looking), and obviously compatability with Mac & PC. I like value for money as much as the next person, but within reason. I don't want to compromise into a significantly worse option to save a few bucks in the short term. Looking to start with about 8TB which will give me a bit
  2. Thought I'd post here as this question, although primarily storage focused, might branch out and go off topic. TLDR; I'm switching from a big permanent Windows PC setup to a 13" Macbook Pro and there's a grey area with the specifics of my new setup outside of the MBPro & the monitor, and I'm looking for some suggestions (particularly storage). This setup will be used primarily for digital painting with some light video work and 3D in Blender and Marvelous Designer. *Will most likely include an iPad/Wacom display at some point. Detail The idea with this switch
  3. 90% of files are MP4, the others are MKV. As for the port, I'm using one on the front panel which are both "SS" 3.0. Case for ref: https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Cases/Carbide-Series™-Air-540-High-Airflow-ATX-Cube-Case/p/CC-9011030-WW
  4. I have an external HD which I use for movies. A quick question regarding load times. On my 10yr old Macbook I plug in the HD, open a Finder (explorer) window and it displays all the files within a second or two and I can scroll smoothly without having to waiti for it to load more as I scroll down the list. On Windows, it's the opposite. I plug it in, wait a few seconds for it to load however many files are visible in the explorer window, but whenever I scroll down 5-10 files it has to load again and again as I scroll down the list. It feels really aweful to use, in contrast to how snappy Windo
  5. Just an update, the I.T shop I went to has offered to look at my PC again free of charge seeing as the issues persisted after their diagnostic service. I'm going to take it in towards the end of the week, will post again with results once I get it back.
  6. Ran that tool, I stepped away for a while as it took good while to complete. When I returned I was at the login page so I assume no issues were found unless there's a log generated somewhere.
  7. This is the only one I'm seeing however instances of the same error predate the shutdown issues. (Also my mouse wheel just broke out of nowhere, woe is me! )
  8. Also @Vishera@Wayupthere, here is the Event Viewer, I'm not at all familiar with this interface so just ask if there are any sections that would assists us and I can post images.
  9. Tested both simultaneously for 1hr (Prime95 had 0 warnings/errors, 1440p resolution with Kombustor)
  10. So start Prime then start Kombustor, any specific settings there?
  11. The download page hangs or sends me to some random other sketchy page, is there and alternative download link/software for this?
  12. No blue screen. Essentially the screens go black (still on), the PC seems to switch off but immediately starts to boot again. Within a few seconds I'm seeing the mobo logo and into Windows as usual. On rare occasion it gets stuck and is unable to boot and keeps turining on and off and on and off. This has only happened twice. Also, once it happens one time in a session, it seems to happen a lot more if I try to go back to playing games etc.
  13. 0 errors, 0 warnings on all "workers". Some had 1-2 less tests completed. Other than that all the same.

  14. @Vishera Last few lines of the Prime95 test for reference.

  15. Will post what I find in the Event Viewer after trying Vishera's suggestions. My cooling setup is pretty good, AIO on the CPU + plenty of airflow throughout the case. CPU temp is currently 62 deg celcius 45mins into the Prime95 test. Exhaust air feels cool and it's around 20 degrees celcius ambient. Haven't tested the PSU (not sure if the I.T shop did either) as it's hard to test through software. My PSU is pretty high quality, but it's also around 5yrs old if memory serves me correctly.
