    MartinKweh got a reaction from CuzimBetter in How do i get my cpu off my cooler?   
    1. Check if all the pins are intact. 
    2. Find anything thin that can act as a prying tool or a way to remove the thermal paste(a sheet of acetate, a sturdy long thread, or even a flat head screw driver)
    3.Carefully place the tool between the cpu cooler and the cpu ihs and carefully pry. If using a string, make a saw motion to remove the thermal paste without too much force.

    MartinKweh got a reaction from Tristerin in Just found out my ThermalTake case had a default intake fan on the TOP. Can someone explain the logic behind it?   
    I think that with enough air flow/pressure, the hot air /cold air science has little influence. I think its fine.

    MartinKweh reacted to Electronics Wizardy in Does moving your OS onto a "better" SSD result in better real world performance?   
    FOr most things like bootup time and app load times there won't be a noticable difference.

    MartinKweh reacted to Nathanpete in Ryzen 9 3900XT vs intel i9 10900F which one will consume more power   
    TDP for intel is kind of a joke. But being 14 nm and similar performance, it will consume more power.

    MartinKweh reacted to Nathanpete in Respondus Lockdown Browser   
    It is a piece of shit browser that school are employing to do online tests in lockdown. Protest it as much as you can, it is pratically a virus. Ever had a program that literally disables the ability to shut down the computer without pulling the power? No? Well that is one of the many thing that Respondus does.

    MartinKweh reacted to Nathanpete in Orange screen with vertical white lines   
    Calm down, take some deep breaths, and think logically. If your emotions are really tied that much to video games I would recommend you listen to the OST of one of your favorite games or whatever game's soundtrack made you feel good. Keeps you happy. My personal favorite is the soundtrack of Forza Horizon 3 and 4, but I think the most popular has to be Minecraft. But Minecraft's OST can just make you cry, a happy cry, because of a deep nostalgia, but that won't help bring your computer back to life. 
    Think logically: Something changed unexpectedly when you swapped in the old card. 1st off: Where was this spare HDD used previously. Is it literally a clean never used version of W10 or was it previously used by another computer? If it was previously used, I would suggest either formatting it and installing W10 on it or creating a Windows 10 Creation Bootable Media USB and plugging that into the back of your motherboard. 
    When it hangs on the MSI logo, is there a spinning circle/ring of spinning dots beneath the logo? The answer to this could be really helpful. 
    Can you confirm you have attempted to boot into all 4 of these configurations since the problem appeared: 
    Old HDD, RX 580 Old HDD, 1050 Ti New HDD, RX 580 New HDD, 1050 Ti. Making sure all four don't work is important.  Also you are getting the same orange with white lines screens when you boot with either GPU? Like the same result on a GTX and a Radeon card? Because if so that makes the problem more complicated because it means one of the GPUs isn't dead. 
    I'd be glad to help if you can be just as helpful to me by including detailed and truthful replies.

    MartinKweh got a reaction from Tetsuo Muramasame in Decade old topic... gtx970 or r9 290 or r9 390 help a newbie out lets choose one of this budget Gpus in 2021   
    The 390x and the 970 has practically the same performance. Electricity being pretty expensive in my country, i think the extra cost on the 970 will pay for it self.

    MartinKweh reacted to TetraSky in Help   
    It will probably be ok.
    These low end graphic cards are basically designed to go in pre-built PCs.
    The CPU alone uses about 65W.
    The GPU is about 30W GPU according to specs, but lets assume it can maybe use up to 75W for what it can consume at most... (PCI-e slot max power delivery)
    If we consider everything else... There's no way you're exceeding 200W regardless.
    I'd personally say it should be fine with the 300W PSU. Even if it's a low end one.

    MartinKweh got a reaction from wkdpaul in Has long term bluetooth radiation been studied on VR headsets?   
    Everyone is practically wearing Bluetooth headsets everywhere for years and they're fine. I think staying under the sun does more harm than Bluetooth.

    MartinKweh got a reaction from Mark Kaine in PC doesn't boot!   
    Did you close the side panel when turning it on  ?  It looks like a prebuilt so most of the time, there is this button thing that prevents you from turning it on when the case is open.

    MartinKweh got a reaction from iEimis in Will this be a problem?   
    If you are afraid of it shorting out, and since you will replace the case soon, just an additional precaution, put an electrical tape on the spot that makes contact with the pcb. But as far as im concerned, as long as there is no trace or electrical contact there, its fine .

    Those monitors are already more expensive than my entire setup >_<
    Joking aside, if you are already spending that much, why not step it up to a 3070 or. 3080? Assuming those are in stock in any way shape or form.

    MartinKweh got a reaction from Lemonpearl in Is it safe to put PS4 on top of metal filing cabinet?   
    I think adding something like a piece of plywood will help. I think filing cabinets like that tend to bend a bit in the middle, making it slightly unstable for the PS4. Unless you plan to mount it flat side down, it's fine as it is.
