    MoonlightSylv got a reaction from prysm in First Build in 10 years - MSI X570 Creation compatiability with 5950x   
    It doesn't seem like this board supports the ability to update the bios without a CPU, the earliest version that supports the 5000 series is version 7C36v1B which released on November 11th. It likely didn't ship with that version. I've heard of some manufacturers shipping out "BIOS update kits" that include the necessary components to update the BIOS so that may be worth looking into. Otherwise just pick up a cheap 2000 series chip (your motherboard also seems to support certain 1000 series chips too https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/PRESTIGE-X570-CREATION#support-cpu)

    Do a clean install of Windows to eliminate HP's bloat, you should really consider adding a second 4GB stick at some point. 4GB is pretty low for modern computing.

    You'll need an older CPU to do it unless your board supports bios flashback
    You could ask a shop nearby to do it for you, or the place you bought the PC from
    Or you could register for a kit from AMD, I think they're still providing the service the lend it kits for bios updates

    I'm confused with what the actual problem is. Is it that your have errors in Chkdsk or is Windows itself not functioning well? Why did you need to use the Reset Feature? You're better off just formatting and reinstalling Windows from scratch if you ever need to use the Reset feature.

    Woah. I kinda love that this exists. And I don't have time to read through 1400 pages of back posts (despite the fact that I always want to read threads that have survived multiple years on forums) so I'm just gonna throw my shit in here.

    So Hi! I'm queer. And genderqueer (they/them please, if that's a thing people need to know) And I've had a lot of coming outs, as different things, because I'm not a youngster anymore and things change with time. Most recently it's been of pronouns. Before I left my last job I made a big deal of coming out (which was a long time coming). Had come back from being furloughed for 2 or so months and I wrote an e-mail to the whole store. This dude, who worked in the warehouse, who is probably 6'5" and plays guitar in a metal band, usually has a serious look on his face. Could definitely intimidate the hell out of a person. Came up to me and pulled me aside, said he wanted to talk. And I have been on good terms with him, have had good discussions about metal and life and whatnot, but I was unsure of how he might feel about this. But he wanted me to know that he was in my corner, offered to deck anybody that gave me guff, and let me know he was looking out for me and offered me a COVID style hug. Luckily he didn't have to deck anybody. But I love it when uncertainty in those situations is totally unwarranted. And he ended up being one of my biggest supports there.

    No, but a PSU being 80+ Bronze is not indicative of it being low quality or requiring an upgrade, and it could be a quality unit despite its '80+' rating. So all I am is saying is that it is not a metric in which you should recommend a PSU upgrade on. 
     
    This unit happens to not be very good with regards to quality, but that has nothing to do with it's Bronze rating.
     
    If the PSU in question was a Corsair CX/CXm 450W I would say an upgrade is not required at all as the quality of the PSU is a lot better than the EVGA BR units, despite both being 80+ Bronze.
     
    No problem! Just refer to that PSU Tier List, in truth just got for a Tier A option. There are relatively affordable options out there, and 550W is more than enough, even for future upgrades unless you get the itch for a really powerful GPU like a RTX 3070 / RX 6800 etc.

    So I was able to install Mac OS X 10.10.1 on my PC and I was wondering if there was a program for monitoring temps, specifically GPU temps. I tried a program simply called "Hardware monitor" but it only showed my hard drives.
