  1. You SHOULD get a board with VRM heatsinks, but you don't necessarily NEED one in all cases. With a 3100 you'll be just fine.
  2. Given that they're the same speed & latency, 2x16. Ryzen is only dual channel, so you'd just be limiting yourself for future upgrades.
  3. Actually just got one the other week for the miss to do her photo and video editing on. It's a great laptop for if you need the power and is light for a gaming laptop, but if you don't, it's pretty hefty to lug around all that extra weight you won't take advantage of. The charging brick is impressively small though.
  4. Stock recoveries won't allow access to internal storage, only aftermarket ones like TWRP will and I believe it's the only one that will connect to MTP automatically without confirmation. There was only a certain period of Android devices where they would automatically enable storage access upon connecting to a PC, when they first switched from USB mass storage to MTP. However, due to security risks of this with public USB outlets at airports and whatnot, this quickly became frowned upon and now pretty much all devices require user confirmation in order to enable phone storage to be
  5. Will they actually show what it looks like is the big question
  6. Somehow they still managed to see a need to produce a 240W PSU But hey, it's got RGB!
  7. You could also go to the junkyard, get a car battery, and toss a wrench across the terminals
  8. Possibly as the latter models were developed later on. Intel's chip lineup is just so unnecessarily fragmented and over the top right now that it's like buying a sedan from General Motors in the mid 2000s, ridiculous. They need to slim the roster.
  9. Thunderbolt 3 is the important part that you're looking for, so at the moment you'll need something Intel. If you're not doing anything graphically demanding and just research/writing work though, you shouldn't need discrete graphics. Pretty much any Thunderbolt 3 equipped laptop will have a good enough iGPU to do high-res for just productivity.
  10. Unfortunately you need an NTFS partition to install Windows on. You could do what others above have suggested of shrinking the partition and creating an NTFS one in the empty space, but honestly that's just as much time and effort as you could be spending just backing up the files to somewhere and doing a fresh install on a clean drive. It's much less cluttered that way and less likely to run into weird issues or poor performance afterwards.
  11. Compared to your old system you'll see maybe 100W more total draw under load, if that Under realistic load scenarios you'd be hard pressed to be drawing 300 total system watts. If it's been going fine till now and still is, I wouldn't change it.
  12. If it's NTFS formatted, Windows will usually allow you to just install onto it anyways and not erase any data, as long as there's enough free space. If it's formatted to Mac file system or APFS or whatever though you can't, you'll need to back up your data first, then format to NTFS (or have the Windows install do it for you). But as a boot drive.... SSDs are cheap
  13. Yeah, I'd need two, and where I am an F14 is $13 while a A14 PWM is $32. Ouch
  14. There's different displays that can be optioned on the same model family (G14), but usually there will be a suffix or variation in the specific model of the unit that denotes the specific feature set like G14SA, G14SB, etc (just an example, I don't know what they actually are). Like how the same car can be offered with a number of different engines on the same model or even on the same trim level.
  15. Oh hey, it's Sarah (I don't actually play any of the games, just a fan of Ashly Burch haha) But yeah, I've been very happy with F12s and P12s in the past. They're not flashy or fancy by any means but they do the job done well and are such a good value. I need some 140s for my other PC and was thinking of trying out Noctua for the first time but I'm still very tempted to just get F14s instead.
