  1. You don't necessarily need to backup everything. Just the stuff that is irreplaceable. The OS and programs can always be reinstalled. But a backup is the only sane option if you want to make certain you don't lose your data. An alternative (possibly cheaper) option might be to get a Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. account and synchronize your data onto it, depending on how much data you have.
  2. A system restore point is not a backup. It (hopefully) allows you to roll back e.g. Windows updates, but that's about it. A proper backup requires a separate disk and copying your data onto it so you have two copies of everything.
  3. Yeah, just increasing the clocks isn't going to do it in most cases Normal DDR4 voltage is 1.2V, but overclocking means running at ~1.35V and possibly changing timings as well, so using the XMP profile is easier if the RAM has one.
  4. It's normal for it to run at 2666 MHz without XMP enabled. Anything higher usually requires enabling XMP or a manual overclock. (The fastest JEDEC spec is 3200 MHz @ CL20, but most sticks use 2666 MHz and need XMP/overclocking to run at the marketed speed)
  5. Maybe I'm missing something, but which conditions would these be? I'm missing the catch on something that sounds like a free upgrade otherwise.
  6. Are we talking hardware RAID or software RAID? I'd normally expect the array to appear as a normal disk to PopOS in the case of hardware based. Otherwise these might help, though the topics are a bit old and there is the potential of data loss. https://askubuntu.com/a/568594 https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount Windows Raid 0 Volumes Howto ~edit: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/no-amd-raid-support-built-in-on-linux/137842
  7. Don't know about coolers, since this looks like a custom form factor. The CPU is a standard Intel CPU (i5-3470), so you could put that into a normal desktop motherboard (FCLGA1155 socket). You'd just have to get regular sized DIMMs as well, since desktop boards don't normally use laptop style RAM, which you seem to have here (with the possible exception of mini-ITX boards).
  8. It'll be updated. All big brands have had updated motherboards for several months already. Otherwise, the instructions are on ASUS' website: https://rog.asus.com/support/FAQ/1038568
  9. Which motherboard? There should be instructions in its manual or on their website. But any recently sold motherboard will have the update applied already.
  10. Not sure what risk knowledge of the particular SoC used inside the router might pose to a user unless it has a flaw that can be exploited remotely. If an attacker is already inside your network and is able to modify the firmware on the router, you have bigger issues.
  11. I remember this was an issue for quite a few people back when it came out. I think changing the field of view has helped some people (not sure if it's in the menu or needs to be changed via console commands though). https://www.reddit.com/r/HalfLife/comments/xwayk/severe_motion_sickness_while_playing_halflife_2/
  12. Don't think they make that publicly available (why would they?) and it's quite possible that different revisions even use different CPUs (or SoCs more likely)
  13. Yes, but probably not that easily. You should be able to Google what the 80+ Gold rating means (e.g. 80% efficiency under x% load). Then you'd have to put a certain load on the PSU (e.g. 200w) and then observe how much power it pulls from the wall to achieve that. E.g. if it needs 250w as input to deliver 200w then it would be 80% efficient. (or do what @Tech87suggests, provided you trust that manufacturer. This is how you'd verify the rating yourself).
  14. You can use pretty much any live USB, for example from Manjaro: https://manjaro.org/support/firststeps/ This will boot into a Manjaro live image and offer to install it. Simply close the installer and open "GParted" from the start menu. You should be able to see the disk(s) and the partitions that are on them. You should be able to right click and delete them.
  15. You'll have to do some research into how to set up a VPN server (e.g. OpenVPN). I'm not deep enough in that topic to write an impromptu tutorial. The computer that functions as a VPN server needs to be always on and connected to the internet (and ideally have a host name or static IP). This computer/server needs to be on the same network as the machines you want to remote into, so that you can connect to them once you're dialed into the VPN. Ideally these machines also need to be always on. There are ways to to turn on remote machine (like Wake on LAN, WOL) but that requires hardwa
