Hacking is most misused term in tech world. Its origins is not illegal activity, and it currently doesn't mean automatically illegal activity. It means tinkering and configuring devices to do what you want them to do. For example installing Linux OS to PS3 is hacking. Cracking is correct term for illegal activity. So like with torrenting, context matters.
@Cargamer1346YT from moderators point of view, this is fine.
Mr.Humble reacted to LunaP0n3 in Replacing Storage drives
The process is called "cloning", and basically is a straight copy from one drive to another. It's useful to do if you don't want the hassle of reinstalling everything. Several programs exist to do the job.
My personal favourite is "Minitool Partition Wizard", and it has worked fine for me. As you are in a laptop situation, you'll need a USB 3 external enclosure / adapter or dock to connect the new drive to the system while it clones.
Once the cloning process is done, shut the laptop down, swap the drives, boot into the BIOS to make sure the drive shows up, then Windows should automatically boot from the new drive.
Keep the old drive on standby for a few weeks, to make sure that everything came over okay, then you can reformat the old drive, put it into an enclosure and use it as a portable drive.

Mr.Humble reacted to Den-Fi in [mini] Thunderbolt 3 is now practically USB4 (plus a bit more)
I wish it was called the USB Adoption Forum so it would be USB-AF.
Sorry. I'll leave.

I'd suggest that most kids under 14 (and yes, contract law varies per country) have their parents permission.
Underwear? Maybe not. Bathing suits? Depends on the context. There's nothing inherently sexual about a kid in a bathing suit (unless it's an overly sexual design).
Context is important, and I have no idea what videos you saw (nor, frankly, do I want to).
If you yourself feel it's inappropriate, simply report the video.
Mr.Humble got a reaction from Lurick in Gigabit capable network tops out at 11 MB/s
well, turns out it was most likely some sort of BTS fuckery, as now the transfer between the NUC and the server works at 1Gbit, but the other PC only does 100Mbit. Tested the transfer with my own laptop and it worked at 1Gbit to server and NUC, which is what I need the most.
The router, however, is apparently dying, as it spontaneously factory reset itself 5 times in the last 2 days, so I was more focused on getting internet to work at all It has been replaced with an ASUS DSL-AC55U
Mr.Humble reacted to Radium_Angel in Drive X shows unallocated after I install windows on Drive Y (But I had files on Drive X)
That's a classic sign the drive is, indeed, gone bad.
If you don't need the data stored on it, then save yourself some time and remove the drive, and install a new one (if you need/want it)
Mr.Humble reacted to alatron978 in What cooler for a warm room?
I would get a large air cooler like the nh-d15 its better then all but 360mm aios and open loop, my ambient gets to 43C in summer and my house has no ac and yet i can still run 4.7ghz without going over 85C on my 8700k (no delid) in cinebench with that ambeint.
Mr.Humble reacted to Shur in Best AM4 air cooler for Ryzen 3600 in Core V1
I'm a big fan of noctua so that's my default
https://pcpartpicker.com/products/cpu-cooler/?compatible_with=fGvRsY#m=99&c=33 brings up a list of AM4 compatible Noctua coolers that *should* fit in your case.
The Noctua NH-U9S is a solid bet, the Noctua NH-L12/NF-A14 may also work for you depending on layout

Maybe 2 years ago, but this year SSD prices dropped a lot. And if you haven't used a computer with an SSD before, you are going to love one as the difference is night and day.
Check out this decent performance 500GB SSD's price:
It's $65. SSDs used to cost upwards of 10 times more than hard drives for the space they gave, but that's a thing of the past now. It is very much recommended.
As a PSU enthusiast, I sugges you take a look at which PSU you buy. There's a world of difference between the cheapest, lowest end and a good power supply, and that can be the difference between your computer flat out dying because of a lightning strike or blackout, or living through such an event.
Usually the way we do new builds here on LTT is we ask you a couple different things: your budget, what you'll use the computer for, and whether you already have a monitor / mouse / keyboard. Then you'll get a couple suggestions for builds which you can start on
