  1. The title speaks for itself If cost isn't the focus, what's better for a pc that's used for occasional gaming. A NAS drive or a consumer drive.
  2. Can you specify what you mean by bad sectors? As in missing data or data slowly being deleted?
  3. If the short period of unattended time doesn't shut the pc down, plus the issue of having to balance the cup of water I mean, on the aluminum heat spreader on the top of the chip would help, but on the chip itself it'd be hard to balance + it'd need to be low enough to make contact, since the chip is lower than the cpu holding bracket but yes, i can imagine that, it'd be pretty dope
  4. You experimented on a core 2 duo, which is a lower powered chip I believe that direct water on a chip is a bad idea overall, simply because in the best case scenario, the cpu chip would heat up the water and the water would overtime just heat up, leaving water vapor, leading to condensation and potentially parts getting moisture on them. That is, if the water doesn't leak out eventually and short circuit anything around the cpu. AIO's and custom loops have enclosed water and radiators because radiators help dissipate heat off of the chip. And core 2 duo's produce less heat than something l
  5. I plan to get bigger storage for myself. So far I've been running off of a 240gb ssd for windows, 2tb hdd for games and some pictures and a 6tb external hdd for video file, pictures and other precious data. The external disk is starting to make noise and i have over 2tb of footage and files that need to be backed up on my pc. I'm the type of person who dedicates storage on my pc equally, the 2tb disk was separated into 1tb for games and 1tb for pictures and other school files i had on. That's why I can't just store files mixed between partitions, because I'd like to keep things in their own
  6. Slovenia with € (euro) good to know the b450 pro4 is an option and is less expensive could go for that alternatively
  7. Thats good to know, but I was wondering if there would be issues with the b550 mobos, if I were to buy newer I'm having a hard time picking if i should go with older or newer motherboards b550 isn't that available in our country, and we only have at least 2 b550 motherboards available, neither of which has a type c in the back Doesn't help that I need microATX, instead of full ATX, due to my case
  8. under 100 the motherboard im looking at specifically is the only one around my budget that has type c in the back
  9. Greetings, I am currently contemplating buying a new motherboard along with a samsung 970 evo m.2 ssd. I'm upgrading because I wish to have a direct type c connection on the motherboard, which my current AORUS B450m does not have. The motherboard in question is a b450m steel legend from asrock. But with b550 on the horizon with potentially newer features and potential motherboards with more type c connectivity, I have a question. I don't plan to upgrade my 2600 anytime soon, so if I were to pick, should I go with a b450 or b550 motherboard. Would there be compatibility issues between
  10. Not to sound like a child, but I would. The problem is guessing correctly from pics, if it's the processor that's dead or a smaller component.
  11. I'm looking at a used / possibly dead r9 285 on a local website for selling used items. The seller said that he didn't test if it's dead, but it looks pretty worn down and I'm contemplating buying it. It's only 15€ (16USD). Should I go for it? Since it's a good card with a 50/50 chance that it's dead.
  12. Ok, i have some findings: Good news: I installed ubuntu with no problem and it works Bad news: the screen freezes at the loading screen with the 760 installed
  13. Is it normal that the screen freezes on the loading animation for ubuntu?
