  1. NEED thermal paste before fitting cooler & do not tighten too much.
  2. Is it a 'board that needs to be told to ignore onboard VGA, before it will see a discrete GPU...? Check in the BIOS that First Boot video is set to PCI-Ex. EDIT: Sanity check - confirm graphics card seating & power connections.
  3. If it works, it's useable... if YOU have no use case for it, then bin it (flip it, if you 'need' the money). EDIT: I still have an i5-750 with its 'board & RAM... I can't bring myself to sell it/bin it, so I'm hanging on to it.
  4. Aside from the exorbitant pricing of graphics cards, I'd think you could play 1440p/144 with $2200...
  5. Thermal paste is usually "supplied" on the cooler, but only for the first fitting. Have you rebuilt it, recently? That CPU should idle at around ambient (room) temperature, maybe 5° higher.
  6. Still too vague... If you want to know if you should "bin it" or "flip it", knowing what "it" is helps.
  7. If what you're trying to use for a given task can't do the task to the standard YOU want it to, it's no longer viable; that said, someone may well be looking for that same hardware, so... EDIT: Is this hypothetical or do you have a specific example?
  8. Windows Server will just be the basis for how your machine works in other tasks; it won't be highly optimal for gaming, for example.
  9. Depends how many you change in how short a time...
  10. LOL... Yes, but if you've never built a PC before, it might look easier than you find doing it. The CPU cooler will need a new application of thermal paste, too.
  11. Dunno that it'd make a difference, but CrystalDisk just told me that both HDD's as S-ATA 300... didn't realise they were THAT old. Also; could this be why the external device that the 1TB HDD came from failed?
  12. Yes; try removing any DOCP (AMD speak for XMP) profile & see what happens. It may also be worth looking into any newer BIOS that gives added DOCP stability.
  13. MAJOR facepalm... Just looked & realised I had the backup file for F:\ drive stored ON the F:\ drive. Now rectified. Think I'll look into a 2TB 2½" SSD that I can use with a USB to S-ATA convertor I bought recently...
