  1. I don't know. I did follow the instructions from another guy from here: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/changing-windows-boot-manager-drive.3571420/ I then unplugged my SSD and tried to boot off of the new NVME SDD and it sent me to some Windows recovery thing saying that it's missing some file. I don't know what to do, I've moved windows to another drive on other PCs multiple times before and never had to go through this much trouble.
  2. Thanks for the replies! So how do I set it to boot off of my new SSD?
  3. Hello everyone, I've recently installed a new 1tb Sabrent NVME SSD into my PC. I've cloned windows and all my stuff from my 500GB Samsung 860 EVO to my new SSD using Macrium Reflect. When I go into the BIOS and set the new Sabrent SSD as the fist device to use in the priority bar and try to boot it gives me the error of "reboot and select proper boot device" The only thing that works is if I put the "UEFI Hard Disk:Windows Boot Manager" as the first one in the priority bar. Thanks.
  4. Hi everyone! I have been having problems with recording with OBS. I recorded some footage a couple times and it looks kinda weird and a bit choppy. I put the video files in Adobe Premiere and realized that every 20 frames or so it skips a frame, it really bugs me. I also tried quick sync and it is the same story. I run Doom at 200FPS at 1440p no problem but the recording looks like crap. PC specs: RTX 2080 FE i7 8700k 4.7 ghz Be Quiet! Dark rock pro 4 MSI z370 A PRO 16 GB 3000mhz RAM 500gb SSD 2TB HDD
  5. Hi everyone! I just upgraded my laptop my putting a 240GB SSD and its only showing 107GB. It has more than 100GB unalocated space and I can't extend it. Is there a way to fix this? Thanks!
  6. Thanks for the reply! The 2020m stays below 63 Celcius under full load so I'm guessing that it can handle another 10 watts for sure.
  7. Hi everyone! I have a Toshiba Satellite C55-a laptop and I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade its CPU from a Pentium 2020m to an i7 3740qm. I found on Ebay the 3740qm for under 100$ Also the Pentium 2020m has a 35 watt TDP and the i7 3740qm has a 45 watt TDP, will I get any other problems other than thermals? I know that it's physically possible to do this but I've been on a site that says it only has a 13% chance to successfully work. What does that mean? http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/CPUs/Intel/Pentium_Dual-Core_Mobile/2020M.html Thanks!
  8. Quick update guys. I just closed my laptop back plate and now I am getting no more than 63 Celsius running a stress test for 30 minutes. I ave no idea why having the laptop internals exposed made the machine throttle 50%+ I am extremely confused and shocked but whatever floats your boat I guess...
  9. Thanks for the replies! The CPU has no problem transferring the heat to the heat pipe. Also it is one piece between the hot and cold parts. There is the whole heat pipe system on Ebay for around 15 USD I can buy. Here is a screenshot of the inside of the laptop I took from one of the disassembly videos.
  10. Hi everyone! I have a Toshiba Laptop C55-a model and I am having some serious thermal issues. I just replaced my CPU thermal paste with some arctic silver 5 and I am still seeing massive thermal throttling. I am running my laptop opened up and I realize that the part of the heat pipe that the CPU is below is very very hot but at about the end of the pipe where the fan and the heat sink is the copper pipe barely has any heat to it. The air coming out of the laptop is basically cold. Does that mean that the copper heat pipe is bad and I need to replace it? Thanks!
  11. Thanks for the info! I'll try to do some research on that subject before making any type of decisions. I appreciate people like you.
  12. Thanks for that reply! In about a week I will need to do to the doctor to see what type of special pills I will need. Apparently they are supposed to reduce the depression and get my concentration back. I don't really know what to expect.
  13. Ok then, looks like I will have to live with my potatoes. Anyways thanks for helping me make a decision. Always appreciate you guys
  14. If I pay 20$ to bump up 6gb RAM to 8gb, Pay 80$ for a quad core CPU, and then 60$ for the external GPU adapter that will cost me around 160$ https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Pentium-G4560-vs-Intel-Core-i7-3630QM/3892vs626 That CPU is similar to the popular Pentium G4560 and I've seen people play games on them. So even for 160$ you think it's just not worth it?
