  1. Looks like a drill/driver in one of the shots - a powered screwdriver has no business being around a PC build - hopefully you were assembling a desk or something around the same time
  2. Don't worry - pulling apart soulless corporate PCs isn't in the same league as putting a raspberry pi inside a ZX81 or an ITX board inside a C64
  3. Nice I sit in the same room as a noisy Cisco 2900 series router. Planning on doing a similar mod at some point.
  4. So it was bothering me that the i7 9700F would never be used to its full potential with that H310 board - the power delivery just isn't there not to mention any other handicaps with the chipset. So I asked my friend if we could put in a Z390 board and he said I could. I also had a 64GB Kit which I couldn't fit in my system when using a NH-D15 as it was too high so I replaced his RAM too. Finally I added an Asus PCE-AC51 wifi card which seems to work well during testing. I could have continued upgrading. For example the new motherboard can support M.2 NVME at higher speeds instead s
  5. RAM timings in BIOS. Look on YouTube videos for your motherboard and ram tuning and you should get some results.
  6. Have you unticked the maximum box? You don't have to populate it with anything.
  7. As for the memory speed, I haven't ever played with Zen based AMD buy from what I have seen in forums such as this is memory is a lot more fussy than on Intel systems. You maybe able to manually tune your ram to a higher clock speed.
  8. Copied from Aapuls.com but many other sites show same resolution: This option in Windows is used to reserve RAM that is used during the boot procedure when your system is turning on. By default, it may permanently and unnecessarily reserve a significantly large amount of RAM for it. To set that right, Press and Hold the Windows key and Press R. Type msconfig in the Run dialog box and Press Enter. The System Configuration window will open. Go to the Boot tab in it. Select your Operating system from the list below if you have more than one. Now Click on the Advanced Options
  9. Interesting you got insurance on it. Was it just on the household insurance or did you have some specialist equipment cover?
  10. I bet someone will sell you one down the pub for £250 - if only the pubs were open
  11. Oh dear. Expect this thread to glow white hot in minutes. Pea sized blob in the middle every time. Used same method on Intel CPUs countless times. As for removing, I spray a little contact cleaner in the middle of the chip to soften it then use one of those wet wipes to clean it off.
  12. Get that CR2032 out of there first off - looks like it is now leaking. Then I would spray a ton of contact cleaner on it - let it evaporate and see what happens when you look it up. Get the roof fixed too, that would be my first priority.
