  1. If you open the computer and are greeted by a lot of dust, clean it out, make sure that the CPU fan can spin. Turn it on while its still open and confirm that the fan is in fact spinning. Once its on, try to see if its gonna crash on you. If not, you probably fixed it. If it crashes then you may have to pull of the cpu cooler and re-apply thermal paste. To monitor the temperatures of the cpu, use a program such as realTemp or even MSI afterburner.
  2. Check the colour settings for your monitors. In the NVidia control panel to be exact.
  3. Def sounds like a thermal shutdown. Check your CPU heatsink, it may be totally clogged with dust and the fan may be unable to spin. Thermal past could also be the culprit.
  4. As long as you don't force it, you cant really damage anything. Pointy with coarse thread? As in it looks like something you would put into wood or plastic instead of into a threaded hole? Those are likely for fans (though including 6 instead of 4 or 8 is weird) or to actually hold your case together. Also, you will ALWAYS have tons of leftover screws from your case when you are done. Do not worry about that. Pretty much as long as everything is held down somewhat securely in some way, your computer will be ok.
  5. The node 202 essentially has 0 airflow. The only fans in that case are the cpu and gpu fans themselves. As in the case doesn't actually have any fans in it. You can add 2 case fans, but just on the GPU side, so your CPU would still be hot. Chances are that it would run OK, but I would definitely expect a little bit of thermal throttling after gaming a while. As far as case choice, get whatever suits your need. If you really want to build a tiny form factor PC (I assume that's why you chose the 202) then go for it, make it work and don't look back. If the actual size and
  6. It can be DISABLED manually in your bios, but is enabled by default on every mobo I have seen in the last 5 years.
  7. your CPU will turbo boost past its "max" speed if it is cool enough. The max TURBO on your CPU is 4.0 GHz, which it will only be able to hit in single threaded workloads. Nothing to worry about, and the stock cooler is likely not holding you back in the slightest with the exception of maybe being a bit louder than some aftermarket options.
  8. http://noctua.at/en/nh_l9i_tdp_guidelines As long as you aren't overclocking (non-k chip so you're not) and your case has decent airflow, and youre not rendering video 24/7 on it, you should be good.
  9. This has nothing to do specifically with your case. Case screws (especially the ones that attach hard drives and other hardware) are totally standard. Basically, gently try threading the screw in the hole, once you have a match, sweet. Do not force anything as you don't want to strip the screws (or maybe you do, I don't judge)
  10. Completely free and it syncs your cloud drives? Yea, I would stay the hell away from anything like this since you will be required to give them your login credentials for all your accounts....not to mention they then also have access to all your files. Not saying that the company itself is malevolent, but hacks and shit happen, and the fewer companies are trusted with your passwords, the better. If something is free, YOU are the product.
  11. Microsoft services and google services do not like each other. You will have to re-upload. Try using your internet connection at school as the upload speed is generally waaaaay better than what youd get at home. If that's not an option, either buy a faster internet package (with higher upload specifically) or just deal with the fact that your computer will be uploading for a week or 4.
  12. Looks like a nice little upgrade to me. Keep in mind that you will likely need to update the BIOS on any H110/Z170 boards in order to be able to use the new Kaby Lake CPUs.
  13. There is a good chance that the i7 will perform better if you are streaming and gaming. Also, the 4XXX stuff should be MUCH cheaper than the skylake stuff. Just don't buy it brand new. For pure gaming, they will perform largely the same until you start going into high framerates (90+) in which case the newer 7600 would perform a little better.
  14. Embedded? I dunno anything about running that. I do know that the win10 version is called IoT core, but I have never actually used it so I cannot give advice on that. GL mate.
  15. https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/ht104064 Maybe that'll help for getting into BIOS. They list 4 different ways of doing it.
