  1. Swapped to an nvme drive in the system. Will hold the old one for a spare system thanks again
  2. Thank you. I'll backup my data and migrate it soon.
  3. Is it a risk or will SMART give me a warning? I don't know if that's something to expect or more of a possible protection Seems fine but I don't totally know what I'm looking at. I'll probably clone to my nvme here soon.
  4. I have exceeded my boot drive rated write life. I have a Samsung 850 evo 250gb, which is rated for 75tbw. Samsung magician says I am at about 105tbw health "good". It's from my 2016 build that I've carried over. Should I be concerned or considering transferring to another drive? I assume they tend to go well past their rating
  5. rtx4080 it is They may as well use be dead at those prices. I'm surprised people are buying them at those prices. hmm
  6. The 3080ti just launched and is already selling for way above MSRP. Ethereum is down. The cards have limiters on them, even though they will be bypassed. It's been months since the other cards launched, so I would assume there is some amount of market saturation. AMD and Intel seem to have stock of CPUs Is the supply still so low that scalpers are buying them all? Are they still so profitable that miners are buying them all?
  7. https://www.amazon.com/ARCTIC-MX-4-Compound-Micro-particles-Durability/dp/B0795DP124/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=Kingpin+Cooling&qid=1622406400&sr=8-6 https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NT-H1-Pro-Grade-Thermal-Compound/dp/B002CQU14A/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=nht1&qid=1622406282&sr=8-3 Get one of those instead
  8. It probably is dry paste. Maybe some dust build up too. Could be the fan bearing degrading. That cooler shouldn't have trouble keep the 4770k cool unless you have a crazy oc Some pastes last longer than others. I just redid mine after a year. A new case and AIO is about 200euro to fix a potentially 5euro problem. I fully understand wanting new hardware to play with, it's just better spent on GPU or CPU upgrades.
  9. Honestly, the u12s is going for $70, $80 if you want it in black. It's a good cooler but the price is terrible. Consider looking at scythe. They make comparable coolers at a way better price. Tech Buyers Guru did a good video on this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZOGK49NGLQ I wonder if those are the temps pbo tries to stay in. I have a 3700x, NHd15 and p600s. It flattens out at 72c in cinnibench r15
  10. What about replacing the thermal paste for now?
  11. Is that the aio + tek cooler?
  12. VSYNC. That will limit how much games are demanding from your pc.
  13. There is almost no difference between the two. Arctic MX-4 is good.
