  1. Not just the physical stress of spinning up, but also the heat change. (More then just being warm). But today's hardware is made so well running it 24/7/365 is about as harmful as turning it off and on.
  2. Ah yeah there are some fake software raid's out there where people dont speak fondly of. This windows storage isnt one of those. Its server grade software ported back to the consumer.
  3. No. The recovery is only for when your Windows doesnt work anymore. So you can reset to factory settings. If you know howto install Windows from USB its just a waste of space.
  4. Just normal youtube-ing does only take about 2%-10% of your GPU, there will be enough power lift for some proper mining (depending on power cost ofcourse) Having a discrete GPU for the daily stuff is even better. Just make sure you have enough VRAM as 6GB+ is preferred. (Less is possible but its so much slower). Make sure on the landing page for the miner, that you select HIGH for your mining OC settings. Ps. you should be able to find this and other settings/nicehash stuff at https://www.nicehash.com/my/mining/rigs That is
  5. Did you use quality paste? Dis you mount with the right pressure? Did you re-use thermal pads for memory and such? Because the only thing i can think of in this situation is the re-paste wasnt done correctly...
  6. Idgaf and just call it pilot error where they can hear.
  7. Right click the Speaker icon in the taskbar (bottom right). Click open "sound settings". On the right click "Sound Controll Panel" Then in the 3rd tab "Sounds" scroll till you see a name with the speaker in front if it. Since Windows 10 uses that sound for multiple things you might need to see which it actually is. Altho i would suggest not removing most alarm sounds as those can be quite helpful.
  8. The motherboard will most likely be missing more parts to get the RGB working. If you really want RGB you most likely will need a 3rd party device you can connect to lets say USB or something.
  9. Well there are options. But those are higly dependent on the notebook and the type. Is it a thin and light dont even bother. Big desktop replacements might have a seperate GPU board, and in the past there were notebooks with MxM slots. Like My old Acer 8930 has MxM card in it, theoreticly i could replace it with a newer card. Just the BIOS wont accept it. Only a very limited amount of them are actually programmed in.
  10. Damn all the time wasted in these articles. Just kidding. The brain is very easily fooled. Just think of all those weird pictures. But lets not forget there is a huge difference in being able to see a frame where an individual frame would be remembered. And that with the 'percievement' of fluid motion. Those are 2 very different things. As in think of a bunch of random photos being played as a video, at lower fps you can still see some content. Thats seeing a frame. But as soon as it goes faster, its more like a blur and you cant s
  11. Well, humans are parasites. The definition is spot on; https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/parasite ps byebye page 69
  12. Also lets clarify, we talking about seeing actual frames and being able to ingest them. Or are we talking lets say a lamp thats moving fast. Cus you can way more easily see that blinking at high fps. This making it feel more like a steady thing. As in i cant really see a single frame from a 240fps monitor, but i can 'feel' the difference as in the 240fps being way more stable looking then a flashy 60fps. Disclaimer, fps and Hz can be exchanged in my message.
