  1. Personally I'd avoid that. There's no guarantee it'll work when you receive it, the screenshot could have easily been faked, and there's no guarantee it'll work for long.
  2. Go paste, just to be on the safe side, unless you want to experiment or will be regularly removing the CPU.
  3. Virtual machines are also option, albeit slower, but you can access both at the same time and don't have to worry about bootloaders.
  4. As it is an OEM motherboard, it may not be capable of running your new RAM at the highest speeds. If you can though, check in the BIOS for XMP, there is still hope.
  5. I personally recently bought an ASUS ZenBook 14, but with 11th gen Intel, the ScreenPad and a 16:9 FHD screen. I could not be happier with it, and I would imagine the ZenBook you've mentioned is similar. That said, if the Matebook 14 is perfect for your use case, it may be worth holding out for, especially with the amount of money you'd be spending. You may as well spend it on something you won't regret! Here in the UK, the Matebook 14 seemed to be quite a bit more reasonably priced than some of its competitors, but the prices you're seeing in the US may be down to the trade war.
  6. This isn't an issue, as it is a laptop and is not designed to be a high powered gaming machine, but it is possible to disable turbo boost. Download ThrottleStop and check the "Disable Turbo Boost" box, then your CPU should stay below it's turbo speed, so you should spare maybe a couple of degrees. It can be normal for turbo boost to be disabled on battery power, as it means that the CPU uses less power, conserving battery life, and also producing less heat.
  7. This is a broad question, the answer really depends on your standards and use case. If we're talking about in general, then the majority of users could easily get away with a system with a 3rd or 4th Gen Intel Core chip, provided they had 8GB RAM and an SSD. If we're talking about current gen stuff, then any ebay prebuilt systems or laptops around the £100/200 mark would be worthless to me, as they have super low end CPUs, and super low end everything elses. If you're really into tech though, then something that the average person sees as trash could be incredibly desir
  8. They will indeed, the big question is though, are you happy with that upgrade, or do you want more?
  9. You don't want max usage, as that happens when the GPU is being overloaded, so it will then slow down and you won't get the FPS you want out of the game.
  10. How much VRAM has the 1060 got? If the 1060 has 6GB VRAM then it's likely the better option.
  11. Peace of mind; plus when talking about the OS drive, other things always get installed on there, especially if it's the only SSD in the system. Games and mass storage are typically the only things that most people offload to their additional drives, but things like browsers, music players and office suites generally stay on the OS drive. But yes, you can get away with 128GB, if you know you won't be wanting much else on there, but I think even 256GB is cutting it a bit fine.
  12. At least 256GB, 512GB is my preferred option for OS SSDs. You can get away with 256GB if you don't plan to store a lot on there aside from the OS.
  13. That's a dual core processor, it'll have to struggle running Windows, especially if it's the latest build. Linux is a lot more lightweight, so it doesn't tax the system as much, so less heat is outputted by the CPU, and the fans don't need to ramp up as much to cool it down.
  14. It really depends on how long you want to use the machine for. If you intend to use it for another few years, then upgrade by all means. However, if you were wanting to replace it within the next year or so, I'd say not to bother, and to just get a new laptop that suits your needs better out of the box.
  15. Bear in mind as well, that processor is around 10 years old, so it's expected that it will struggle with a few modern Chrome tabs, hence working harder, hence giving off more heat. Anyway, those temps are fine, I personally wouldn't worry.
