  1. Did you check that wake on LAN/ PCIe/ USB is disabled? I once had a similar issue that turned out to be a network card under the impression of having to wake my PC
  2. I'd guess turning on your fan leads to a voltage burst or drop in your mains circuit which could trigger the end of sleep mode. However, that's really just a guess and I haven't put any thoughts in to how exactly the chain of events could be here.
  3. On that topic the Wikipedia page gives a short overview of DLSS: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_learning_super_sampling
  4. You need an antenna with a SMA connector if you want to continue using your onboard WiFi. A "USB antenna" in the sense of it only being an antenna connecting to your onboard wireless card does not exist. Instead those "antennas" are actually USB WiFi cards with the card built into the antenna itself. Go for whichever option you like best but if your onboard card works you could just as well get an Antenna with SMA connector and continue using it (should be more reliable than a USB connected one). Edit: There are also antennas connecting right to the SMA connector on your card
  5. Be aware that the benefits of SLI (assuming you don't need the GPUs for productivity workloads) does not really make too much sense any more (see a recent LTT video regarding that topic on RTX 3000).
  6. Before reinstalling I'd definitely try the recovery boot medium (which is not the safe mode), assuming the article doesn't help. It's a lot less effort than reinstalling ;)
  7. Maybe this post helps: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance-winpc/how-to-fixing-error-0xc00000e9-on-windows-10/d5009c52-49ac-456c-9b78-4d6509fd0c77 If that doesn't work maybe using a recovery boot medium for Windows can resolve the issue. With it's help you should be able to identify boot problems.
  8. Ok, that's interesting. In the screen shot of your command prompt I noticed you used the command "create part pri" instead of "create partition primary". I've never used the former command and don't know whether it does the same than the latter one. Also, did you try to use another file system than FAT32 just to try (e.g. NTFS)? Alternatively you could try to assign a drive letter to your SSD and retry the creation of a file system (I took that from the error message of the first picture you posted https://imgur.com/a/G4fpB0o). Hope that helps
  9. I guess I have to correct my initial statement then Still the only use I see is, as you already stated in your OP, that the grounding protects you from electrostatic charge. I personally never experienced any problems with my not-earthed drives, so probably you'll be fine using an un-grounded adapter anyways. The power surge "issue" stays unchanged, though.
  10. As far as video editing goes LTT made a video about a budget 4K editing rig which might give you some inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_HKRUPN1Mk Both Sims and Rome Total War 2 should be fine with your 650 Ti (a 650 is the official recommendation for Sims 4). With Plex I'm unfortunately not very familiar. However I understand that you need quite a bit of computing power for seven simultaneous 4k streams plus two more virtual machines. I guess you will inevitably end up having to go for a Threadripper 3000 series CPU and at least 32 GB of RAM. For your host
  11. So you're looking for a CPU/ Motherboard recommendation if I'm not mistaken?
  12. NVME is the protocol the computer uses to communicate with the drive (the "language" so to say) whereas PCIe is the physical interface the drive is connected to. The "4x" means that you have 4 PCIe lanes available for data transfer. Your motherboard does support NVMe SSDs (found that on the Gigabyte product page):
  13. It seems to be a RAM issue. It says in slot 0 the DIMMs (your memory sticks) 0 and 1 are the problem. Have you tried removing one of the ram sticks and trying another slot (only using one stick for starters)? Usually your MOBO's guide book should give you some advice on which slots to populate first.
  14. I've had a similar problem (only with a thumb drive instead of a SSD) using the graphical formatting tool. For me the following procedure helped: Open a terminal window/ command prompt and type "diskpart" (without the " at the beginning and the end). List your system disks with the command "list disk". You should see a list of your attached storage devices. Choose the SSD you want to format (be careful to select the right drive!) by typing "select disk <disknumber>" Remove any previous partitions with "clean" Create a new partition table using "create part
