  1. hmm, now I'm even more not too sure xd. I moved two problematic games to my c drive, and it instantly crashed twice (I think it's safe assume my SSDs aren't bad?). then I proceeded to remove 1 stick of ram. both games ran fine with zero crashes. I then swapped the sticks expecting maybe this stick to cause a blue screen but it didn't. it ran fine as well. I then proceeded to put both sticks back into the motherboard and well, it ran fine all night. whea means there was a hardware failure, but is there any way to get more details from windows? not sure if their crash logs state something more s
  2. You aren't mistaking this for coil whine by any chance? Here's an example of coil whine. But effectively, when a GPU is under load, there can be "whining" or a "buzzing" sound coming from your gpu. If it is coil whine, there's not much you can do about it. Maybe if you contact Gigabyte, they might (but I doubt it) rma it for you and maybe you'll get another card that has "less" coil whine.
  3. That's true. This ram ran fine OCd at 3644MHz as well for quite some time but maybe something is failing. I think I downloaded the wrong files for memtest86 and that's why I couldn't get it to work. I just re-downloaded it and ran it. The ram was still running at 3200MHz when I ran the tests and memtest86 returned 0 warning/ errors. For now, I'm moving the games that have given me the most blue screens off to my C drive to test if it's potentially my D drive ssd that's busted. If I still blue screen, I'll remove the OC back to stock/ default speeds and see if that helps.
  4. when you say memory diagnostic, I ran the windows memory diagnostic check? I was going to run memtest86 however I could not get it working. Anyways, the windows memory diagnostic returned no error. in the meantime, I will also try and run a memory stress test. I'll also move a game to my primary ssd and play around and see if maybe it is a potential ssd error (again, only crashes during gaming and all my games are on the D drive, coding, browsing, prime 95 benchmarks, etc have never crashed). I don't have any spare parts other than a hard drive and b250 motherboard. I can also try using one st
  5. Ah yes, that's really helpful. Just crashed again with the same BSOD. Hmmm, now I'm not sure what it could be.
  6. Interestingly enough, I went to `check for updates` and there were a few drivers that were "out-dated." I had attempted to install them but it actually caused me to get stuck in a bsod crash boot loop (different blue screen error). The corsair mouse driver windows was trying to install wasn't cooperating leading to a bsod, and if I tried to use an recovery, windows would instantly try and install the new driver causing it to crash again... In the end, I had to re-install windows. I'm still trying to collect data, however, attempting to start up borderlands 3 did cause a blue screen. Unfortunat
  7. I believe my firmware is ADATA_SX8200PNP42B7T1KA? Well, that's the details I get from Hardware Ids. For a format, I'm guessing we're talking about the D drive (the ADATA)? But just to double check, Windows formats the C drive when installing windows and the D drive when I created the new partition for it? But either way, I'm okay with formatting the drives. As for GPU Temps, it runs at 65C under load.
  8. right, but as I've mentioned, if I click on update firmware, it just takes to their product page. that's what I'm confused about cause it doesn't seem to update the firmware.
  9. would you know how to do it? I couldn't find much info for it.
  10. yes, however, like I mentioned, it just takes me to their product page, and when I click on the SX8200 Pro, I only get an option to download the toolbox, acronis software, or SSD manual. No firmware is available.
  11. Yup, I ran both those commands as well as `chkdsk C : /f` and `chkdsk D : /f All those tests returned no errors. I tried to check for firmware updates and the Rocket 4.0 is up to date. I tried to update the firmware for the SX8200 Pro however it just takes me to their products website and there's nothing useful under downloads except for their ssd toolbox, their version of acronis, and the manual. Didn't find any firmware files.

  13. Is there any way to manually determine or fine out how much your router is allocating for you? I'm mainly just wondering why there are cases where my desktop gets like > 2mbps download on the 2.4GHz even though the only thing that's using internet is a tv box (stream service) and a tablet. I would think it's interference, except there aren't that many networks visible (compared to my apartment) and I do not believe people are using microwaves and what not at hour intervals. I feel like something must be limiting the bandwidth as there's no traffic on the 5GHz either (since at my parent's ho
  14. So reading through this and some sites again, it seems like bandwidth is the theoretical max mbps you can get and throughput is actual mbps. and speed is the mbps between a device and a router/ world? For example, I pay for 250mbps, this would be the bandwidth. However, because of random things outside my control, my throughput is only capable of 240mbps. Meanwhile, if I try downloading a file from a server across the world, the speed of it would 10mbps. So are you saying that speed and throughput are interchangeable? So in this case, would it be correct to say I'm using 50mbps o
  15. This is a bit vague and I'm not really sure how to put/ ask these questions, but there are some things I just wanted clarifications on. Bandwidth and speed: So, when I look it up, they use a highway analogy where bandwidth is "how many lanes are on the highway" and speed is "how fast a car can move." But I can't really make sense of this analogy. For example, I can take a speed test and find out I get 250mbps download speed, but does that mean my bandwidth is also 250mbps? For example: I'm playing a game and use 50mbps. If my friend were to download a game, he would get up to 200m
