  1. I'd considered shucking, but isn't the result pretty random? I'm the kind of quiet freak who has all-Noctua fans in a HAF-X case, so there being a chance I'll end up with one of the more growly/thrashy models isn't appealing.
  2. I've read the guides. I've read the "best of" lists. Mostly what I've achieved by doing so is confusing myself because of the way WD are realigning their range and whether I need to care about the whole CMR/SMR thing. My new system uses a 500gb SATA SSD for the boot drive, I have a 1tb 4.0 nvme SSD for a game library, but I can't decide on a media drive. My old machine uses a 4tb WD Green that's getting on for eight years old at this point, so it needs replaced both for data security before it dies and because I keep butting up against the size. I'd like something that's 8tb(or mor
  3. Okay I hooked everything up with the speaker installed, it's giving me 1 long 2 short, which is supposed to mean videocard memory error.

  6. Could really do with a hand, I'm getting no signal to my monitor when I try to start my new rig, can't enter BIOS to set the windows install USB(or rather, I can't tell if I've successfully entered the BIOS or not). MSI B550 Tomahawk, 3600x, 32gb Teamforce Vulkan 3200mhz RAM, Corsair RMx750 PSU, GTX 1080. I've tried an alternate monitor, alternate cables, different ports on the graphics card, different RAM configurations(normal furthest-with-a-gap, the reverse, next to each other in all possible ways, and both sticks tested singly in every slot), I used the single bifurcated PCIE cable that ca
