    MajorFoley got a reaction from SpiderMan in Thermal paste a little on outside of pin   
    Yeah i was originallyly going to but im not gonna take chances, its my only current CPU and i was going to go 5900x but i said id wait it out especially since its way out of stock atm. Id rather pay 55 bucks and have someone who knows what they are doing do it instead of loosing 500+ in hardware (AUD prices) but thank you for the suggestions guys, will let you know how i go

    EDIT: I forgot about this, took it to Centrecom they cleaned it for free on the spot no service charge all is well
    Happy new year guys!

    MajorFoley got a reaction from ausham in PCIe cable Separate or Y cable fine?   
    I mean for a 3080 I'm probably going to take the advice of Jonny up there. 3070 doesn't seem as cut and dry but probably would still use 2 as recommended above. Just means if i want my case looking a bit clean i might have to order single cables so I don't have to use the Y ones. Just amazes me that corsair gives you 2 Y-cables and not 1 y-cable and 1 single.

    MajorFoley got a reaction from 05032-Mendicant-Bias in PSU for 3080 a bit of conflicting info   
    Appreciate it, right now im looking at 750W i don't think i really want to go higher than that unless necessary. I don't plan on manually overclocking yet (CPU not GPU) but it is something i have thought about, although it would be a first time for me, and I already use D.O.C.P for my RAM and that's fine.

    MajorFoley got a reaction from 05032-Mendicant-Bias in PSU for 3080 a bit of conflicting info   
    Actually is 165 overclocked but i dont use that little feature
    I'm not upgrading the CPU anytime soon, at least not until motherboards start rolling out with DDR5 RAM which i assume is in the next couple of years but even then would wait for how expensive it could be
    Well RM750X still seems like a good choice, although I thought Guru stopped doing reviews?

    Anyway I still would prefer to get a PSU now because my MB is coming back from RMA and I dont want to have to redo everything when i do choose a GPU. 3070 has been delayed which is annoying and then probably after reviews chances are bots will take em all again so its a choice between 650w and 750w and one of those 2 cards.

    MajorFoley got a reaction from Slayerking92 in Windows 10 has signed me in under emails and accounts?   
    So i use a local account for my machine on windows 10. Apparently i noticed today after resetting my PC and looking at the start menu i noticed a medal icon with microsoft points. Puzzled i went to settings and apparently under email & accounts under accounts used by other apps my hotmail is there. What is this because i dont recall doing anything that would allow this? And if i click remove im worried its actually going to delete my hotmail account.

    MajorFoley got a reaction from Raznor in Be quiet 600 pure base 2 pin fan help   
    I ended up just leaving that cable out and plugged the sata power in, the speed controller at the front still works but i don't think the fans show in the BIOS
     
    Yeah already just put in the power, i think the fans are already connected somewhere else so i dunno why that 2 pin is there

    So looking at this image i have posted i can see sata power and 2 pin connector for the fans but i have no idea where the 2 pin fans go (which i think connect both rear and front fan). I'm using a X470 Asus prime Motherboard.

    MajorFoley got a reaction from Ben17 in Laptop upgrading from 7 to 10   
    I assume you use that USB installation media thing? He just browses the net and its already got an ssd the laptop is perfect for him. Just hope firefox and things will remember his details because i dont remember them off by heart and i doubt he really cares... (which is something i keep saying to remember your damn passwords)

    MajorFoley got a reaction from Ben17 in Laptop upgrading from 7 to 10   
    OK so my step dads laptop finally needs an upgrade to 10 due to 7 losing its security updates. Normally if this was mine I'd do a clean boot and be done with it and just backup my stuff that i wanted. However he is a very... moody guy when it comes to things how he likes it so its gonna be annoying for him going to 10 to begin with. I still read that the upgrade path for free still works and im thinking of going that route. Just wanted some confirmation would most of the programs like firefox google earth (dunno why he bothers) etc still go along for the ride along with its settings? His bookmarks, auto logins etc? Will some files and folders on his desktop still be there after the upgrade or is this something that windows 10 will no longer show?
     
    To be on the safe side I plan on using Macrium reflect to make an image but i thought I'd ask some people who may have already done it.

    MajorFoley got a reaction from BuckGup in Part of start menu missing when using search bar   
    Well first update was a bust, checked for updates again apparently theres a cumulative one. Started when it first went to 1903 i think so hopefully this will be the fix.

    EDIT unfortunately none of the updates have fixed it. Still got a gap on the left when searching. The gap is normally where file explorer etc is if you weren't searching or settings and feedback is when you are. The gap currently has a video there because it was in the background for now but it shows that its not the normal black bar.

    Was gonna say that doesn't the lower watts usually mean it needs to work a bit harder to keep it cool, it's what ive seen posted many times
     
    I wouldn't do that anyway, it doesn't seem worth it when the GPU is the easiest thing to upgrade in a case.

    Old media is dying at an incredible rate, the only reason foxtel is trying because they realise how bad they are losing and their first day with Game of Thrones showed how badly prepared they were, not to mention people PISSED at watching at 480P.
     
    I don't think fines are gonna stop most people when a simple google search is gonna solve all their problems and im pretty sure alot of people know they are stealing by not paying. I have not gone to the movies in at least 7 years (im only 24) and pretty much the only time i ever watch movies is again, if given to me or on special and i rip them. Peer pressure doesn't help either but again, you know that Data retention crap they passed to try and combat "terrorism"? Nah it's to make sure they can keep an eye on you whenever they want and the first thing they did was sick the AFP on a journalist. 
     
    This government is too stupid to fix the problem but the other side doesn't want to do it either at this point.
     
    I can also make the same point with games, Games back in the day used to have demos so you could try it out and decide if you wanted to buy it or not, companies realise it loses them sales so they remove it and provide betas as long as you pre-purchase, again leading more people to piracy to try the game before deciding on buying or saying it was a bad game, and i don't blame them. Alot of games today need so many patches just to get them bloody working right.

    Ah, so that means everyones gonna stop doing drugs? Again, they are attacking the symptoms not the root of the problem and as long as the root is still there (only expensive prices and region locking and the shitty MTM we got that the government personally sabotaged so Murdoch could keep his foxtel empire) Piracy will never die.
    The FTTP NBN was the first step in getting rid of pirates who didn't really want to pirate, you can thank our wonderfully stupid Coalition government to help piracy thrive until 2040 at the minimum as long as they are in.

    This is why if i ever get blu-rays for a event or i decide to buy them on special, i immediately rip them to a HDD to watch on a media player or for my laptop. As long as prices are much higher than other countries, piracy in Australia will remain rampant, and Foxtels new streaming service won't kick off as much as they think because there are alot of people like me who hate Murdoch
