    Build 10240 is Windows 10 version 1507, which is very old (as 15/07 suggests from 2015/July).

    Download media creation tool and run it. It ask you what you want to do select "Upgrade this PC now" option and it'll update your current installation to latest version (which should be build 1909).

    Here's one, hope noone's said it before: Better cooler = lower room temperature

    It's obviously not true, because the thermal energy is going to be transferred(with the exception being a cooling system that's not only superior in its cooling capacity but also transfers to somewhere else, kind of like what LTT did some years ago) to the room either way. I know it's pretty obvious, but it's probably just a general misconception, as people think: better cooler = cooler component = less heat = colder room

    Just mentioning it because I've seen/heard people say it before...

    Jonas_2909 got a reaction from Ben17 in new PC keeps freezing   
    Right after submitting my last edit, it crashed again. Although this time, it BSODed and it said clock_watchdog_timeout, which from what I've read would support @Artherion's thesis of something being off about the CPU.

    Jonas_2909 got a reaction from Ben17 in new PC keeps freezing   
    So, I tried using my PC with just one stick of ram in different slots, but it doesn't really seem to do anything. Also, I've noticed quite some differences in the time it "takes" my pc to freeze. So I was just watching something for a good 10 minutes, although I think the pc's locked up sooner before...
    EDIT: The CPU cooler seems to be sat flush with the cpu...

    Will try using just one stick, especially given they're of different speeds and all of that.
    My PSU's a Xilence 630W 80+ Bronze: https://www.xilence.net/en/power-supplies/12
    Have had it for three years and I don't really remember having any issues with it.?

    So I just put together my "new" PC consisting of a Ryzen 7 2700X on a Gigabyte AX370M-Gaming 3 with my old R9 380 Nitro 4GB and my old 16 gigs of RAM and it keeps freezing and can't seem to find the reason why... :(

    First of all. Try with "better" psu. While 80+bronze is not bad, have not heard about Xilence and 630W is odd.
    Check with one ram stick. Check whit different speeds using ryzen master. Can you tell us the model of your ram by using cpuz and openind "SPD" tab.
    It could be your cpu. See temps whit hwinfo64 and make sure they are under 100c. Cehck your cpu in another  system

    Try use one stick of RAM and see if problem persist.

    Jonas_2909 reacted to sowon in How wide is a Razer Blackwidow's spacebar?   
    I believe it would be 6u thanks to Razer's decision to implement a non-standard bottom row. Here's an image I found of a Razer Blackwidow Chroma's keycap dimensions.

    Jonas_2909 reacted to minibois in How wide is a Razer Blackwidow's spacebar?   
    It's probably a 6u spacebar, while standard is 6.25.
    114.3mm vs. 118.10mm
     
    1u = 19.05mm.
    Standard layout:

    (15u wide)
     
    Looking at a picture:
    I can safely say the Windows, fn and that one key on the right next to control are 1u. Ctrl+Alt are 1.5 u (just like Tab and backslash), which totals: 9. That leaves 6 units for the spacebar.
    6u = 114.3mm. The two stabilizers should be 100mm apart from each other:
    https://support.wasdkeyboards.com/hc/en-us/articles/115009701328-Keycap-Size-Compatibility (third image on the site)
     
     
    It's entirely possible the stabilizer is standard/defalt, while the spacebar is not.
    That should give you some pointers are what to measure for..

    Jonas_2909 reacted to zlolslavez in How wide is a Razer Blackwidow's spacebar?   
    From what I'm seeing online it looks like the Blackwidow is 6u (as opposed to 6.25u for most standard keyboards), but I'm not sure how compatible getting a new stabilizer will be for that board.

    So, Linus is going to have to act quickly if he wants to get his library of old motherboards updated!
     
    This is going to affect the retro community, particularly the gaming folks who use the older hardware to keep their games alive... particularly those that require the hardware for license checking. I guess my shelf of older CD games is going to take a hit. We have until the end of the week. Eek!

    For this price you can get a decent Ryzen 5 2600 + RX 5700 XT, since the 7700 and 1080 offer more power up front then it's actually a good deal in that regard. However, lack of a CPU upgrade path and not knowing power supply, motherboard, etc is a bit of a shame.

    It's a locked 4C/8T. Nobody wants those in a new gaming system.
    You can get 6C/12T or 8C/12T cpu's for less than 200 bucks (if you are fine with a bit older hardware) that will give the 7700 a big slap in the face.
     
    GTX 1080, again, older hardware, still decent tho, but with RX and RTX there's a lot of competition out there.
     
    It's average, nothing special, but not terrible too. Price is ok if i would need to make a very badly guess.
