  1. I have tested alot, not just with Crystaldisk, but also windows tool´s and various other programs. The issue however seems to have gone away for now, after I made an extra partition of unallocated space on the secoundary drive.. maybe I am just "lucky" atm. Optane does not seem to be the issue, that was one of the things I looked into and I also briefly tinkered with the cable abit inside (took out and in) so maybe it was loose? Anyway.. will report back if this solved the issue, it was suggested that you might need extra unallocated space for optane to function (and I only had so
  2. Another note. I have tested with several programs now and the HDD is 100% health etc. An example on the HDD disappearing, could be just 5 mins ago, I was just watching forums and news in my browser and suddenly, bam.. HDD is gone.. can´t get it back by search or anything. When I boot and go into bios, I see the HDD right away (it has optane with it) and it is there, when I boot up windows again, the HDD is there.... It is rather weird... the HDD does not seem to be faulty.... Anyone with suggestions that I did not try yet?
  3. Should have included that. It does disappear from disk manager as well and I can´t get it back (if I search for it) It can take 2 hours, it can take a day or more... it is pretty random in terms of when it disappear as well... I tried to think about if it was after I used a certain file/program or if it had been after a "slumber" but all in all.. it just happens at random.
  4. Hi all My secoundary HDD, a Seagate Barracuda 2TB + Intel Optane Memory 32GB M.2 SSD. randomly disappears from win, now and then (started this week) It can happen any given time, can be after the machine has been in deep sleep, can be just after I quit a game, can be well.. just while using the PC. My main SSD with win, obviously has no issues, so the PC does not crash or anything. I have tried to tweak the cables abit. Run various diagnostics (crystal disk, windows diagnostic and Seagates own tool) all showcase no issues with the disk.. I am yet to try and change
  5. We know the DRM hinders performance, we know that it is without patch 1 and new drivers and we know that they used a bloody high tier GPU with a semi tier CPU on 1080p..... who the... does that. I have no concerns about performance.
  6. I preordered a few days ago.. I don´t see why not, I will buy it anyway.. But I would never preorder games long before a release, unless I knew (had been in beta testing etc) or had extenssive information about it. Most games I don´t preorder however. I am not hyped either, I think it will be a decent to good RPG, that is enough for me.
  7. I did a pre-purchase a few days ago on it. I don´t see much reason to do it long before a game is relased, but a few days before if you know that you want it and have researched should be fine. Factor in that you can refund as well, even if you preorder, makes it fine for me. I am sure it will be great. Most likely we wont get to play before a day after release, I predict massive server issues on steam and patch issues.

    TN or IPS PANEL?

    Personally my priority would be Hz>Resolution (1440p is sweet spot for me)>Panel type>extra stuff That is based on overall use, but with lots of gaming, so depending on what you need it for, advice can differ. IPS is great now a days and often can pull high hz and no ghosting etc.. I have up to 165hz (and 144 without oc) on mine and that is a 1440p, it is also 4ms (not that gtg matters that much, often they market differently anyway). Albeit be mindful about IPS if you use your monitor in a dark room, then you will need to either adapt or have a little light so
  9. After much tinkering I seem to maybe have found an acceptable colour scheme.. I had to tinker alot to make it similar to the old panel and it is still abit "darker" but well what can you expect from a price like this. I will make sure to use a colourimeter if I ever get my hands on one. Ty for the advice and help tikker, I reckon going away from all those online guides and instead tweaking it myself helped abit.
  10. Indeed not.. If I don´t have to I don´t want to.. even the minor IPS glow and abit of backlight bleeding at the upper right corner is acceptable tbh.. The whole rma is kinda a lottery, since it is just refurbished monitors you get.. Basically I could get something much worse next time. I don´t think you can up the backlight, atleast I have not seen any option for it. I reckon I will test it out and see if it can be ignored or tinkered enough with to be acceptable.. Maybe I can even get some of the glow and/or BB away (if I put a tiny pressure on the panel it goes away entirely
  11. Alright. But even with tinkering around, it feels so "dark" and when I turn contrast or brightness higher, it becomes way to much and ruin the colours.. I guess I might have to just up it a tiny bit and maybe live with the tiny bit darker feel to it. (when I say darker, I mean that the colours were might brighter earlier on the other panels) TY for the suggestion. I will see if I can get a colorimeter to test abit.
  12. I might showcase some pictures later on, if needed.
  13. Hi all Today I got yet another replacement monitor (I had my first shipped to repair, then got a replacement with huge issues like damage to the filter, much backlight bleed, etc) But this new monitor is rather weird. It does have alot of IPS glow, but nothing I can´t live with, but when I calibrate it to the usual settings Racing mode - 47 b 47 c - R 100 G 95 B 95 - The colours seems abit meh.. I would not say washed out, but not as lively as on the other two panels. The screen also seems alot darker, as in these settings seems alot darker, than the other panels I
  14. I was sure it was tuesday as well.. but no this is not maintenace, it is just a server issue, it happens, rarely but well.. You should expect it to be up between a minute and a few hours
