  1. Hey, One of my drives isn't showing in disk management in windows 10. Its a samsung 860 pro, and it shows up in task manager as disk 3, just not in disk management so I can't format it. The drive used to be my OS drive and I wiped it using the samsung magician software then plugged it into my new computer. Has anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it?
  2. Sorry for late reply, yeah I have an open air case so wiring is not an issue for me, but I'd like to wire a power and reset button in, have you done this before?
  3. Im in Australia I soldered like once before but happy to get into it Just floating, something easy to access but might want to mount it to something later Doesnt matter about retaining both What does this mean?
  4. Hey there, I have just finished building my PC today and I have put it in a spot on my shelf, however it makes my power button on the case hard to reach, how would I go about wiring a switch like this (attached) to my PC to make it turn on when I flip the switch? Are there any tutorials out there or has anyone done it before who can give a step by step guide? Thank you!
  5. Either or will work fine I reckon, but I'd wait till the 10th gen reviews come out to see if there is a big enough performance jump to justify going up a CPU generation, depends on the cost too...
  6. Hey, Got my PC here and the case fans are so loud, they are just the stock 3x 140mm fans in the define S2, but I just really think that they shouldn't be this loud. All 3 fans are plugged in to the included fan hub but I don't think it's working. Tried adjusting the fan curve but it doesn't pick up that there are any fan's connected to the system, changed the fans to the PWM header on the hub and if anything, its louder. Does anyone else have the same problem? or are these fans just geniunly loud?
  7. Hi, was wondering if the integrated graphics in either a 2200g or a 2400g will benefit more with a 32gb kit of memory rather than just a 16gb kit of memory if they both run at the same speed?
  8. Hi, I am looking to start my own first time water cooling project. I'm just confused about the reservoir. What do I need to look for when selecting one? Does size matter? I am looking to get a pump/reservoir combo just because it will be easier. Thanks
  9. Hi, I am confused about the memory speeds between the Budget boards and the z370 boards. I currently have an i7 8700 and 16gb @ DDR4-3200 of ram. My current understanding is that only the z370 chipset boards can run ram over 2666. Everything else is up to 2666. Will my 8700 also be locked to only 2666? Can anyone clarify this?, ideally I want the Ram to be running at 3200.
  10. Hi, I have a meshify c mini case and the case fans included are both 3 pin. My motherboard has 4 pin fan headers, Is it possible to use a 3 pin fan to 4 pin header adapter to allow the fan to have pwm control?
