  1. Your start menu folders/programs changed.
  2. if you hate it here, why do you even bother to post then? Also, status materials.
  3. Top one should be wired directly into your CPU, but you can confirm this with your Motherboard manual. If it is, I would try placing it back in there again as sometimes a re-seat can fix it. if still nothing, I would RMA your board for a dead m.2 slot.
  4. Probably running out of VRAM since your GPU only has 3gb and its causing offloads to your system memory which is magnitudes slower if I had to guess.
  5. I agree, but I do have clients who use 10. IPs for there CPE IPs instead of the 100.64 scopes so its not uncommon.
  6. could always get a sata based m.2 drive as well instead of NVMe, then you wouldnt have to worry about wiring it up, or cooling it.
  7. you will see zero different between NVME and regular sata based SSD for anything other than really high end computing tasks thats require fast storage speeds. Gaming and general browsing is not one of them. Sata drives are still 100% just as fast as NVME drives for those tasks.
  8. on the stickers of the RAM, you have 2 different kits, one starts with 1746, and the other 1802
  9. To get around the CGNat, no there is no other way. Its becoming more and more common as IPv4 space is no longer available and IPv6 isn't ready for full deployment yet. I have several ISPs I work with that utilize this to save IP space and its common for gamers to need static IPs so they can do proper port forwarding to open up the NAT for Xbox and PSN.
  10. You will have to pay for a static IP address from your ISP to get a proper individual IP address.
  11. if you have a 10. WAN IP Address, its not a double nat... but sounds like you're behind a CGNat. Only way to get the ports you need is to get a static IP address to bypass the CGNat solution your ISP has in place.
  12. I personally felt the 970 Evo, which I have the 1tb of myself, ran to hot. The Controller got extremely hot. I put a heatsink on it personally. It would hit over 105c when doing file transfers.. never gets above 70c now under full load.
  13. welcome to Laptop gaming... Thermals and gaming laptops never go together in the same sentence.
