  1. Working it with this right now: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor $484.99 @ Amazon CPU Cooler Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler $99.95 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard $160.77 @ Amazon Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory
  2. Budget (including currency): $1500 Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Streaming games over Twitch Other details: Planning for a friend. I know streaming takes more resources since the computer has to split between the game itself and the streaming software and encoding. I don't know what exactly we need to focus on for this though. Right now we're looking at: Intel i7-10700k, 8-core AIO CPU cooling MSI Z490-A PRO ATX LGA1200 motherboard Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 32GB (2x16gb) DDR4 3200 RAM Team GX1 960GB SSD
  3. I can't imagine it's not given it was from a system builder, but the PSU sticker isn't facing the right way to know and he's not one to take it apart and see and I can't get there until tomorrow to try. We're going to swap in his old PSU and see if that changes anything, newegg's power calculator shows only needing 462 watts for the system and his old one should be 550, technically above but not a lot of headroom.
  4. Haha new info. Got a different error code involving 'kernel power,' of course an easy cooler change is never the issue. - <System> <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power" Guid="{331c3b3a-2005-44c2-ac5e-77220c37d6b4}" /> <EventID>41</EventID> <Version>8</Version> <Level>1</Level> <Task>63</Task> <Opcode>0</Opcode> <Keywords>0x8000400000000002</Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2020-12-30T19:08:37.5997212Z" /> <EventRecordID>7598</EventRecord
  5. Can a brother get a bump ;_; Need me some more ideas here.
  6. So I remembered the event viewer and got him to find what major went on when it crashed, The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xffffde0996ca3028, 0x00000000b2000000, 0x0000000000030005). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 6ebec81b-698d-423d-afa5-9891f9c6c694. I couldn't find anything related to that bugcheck on my own.
  7. For future generations looking for this: The issue was drivers. We updated the BIOS, the chipset, some driver for the power mannagement, and the sound driver. Somewhere in there it was fixed, probably the power management and/or BIOS. We saw what drivers were missing/outdated somewhere in the system, he looked it up himself. We also changed out the thermal paste, the AIO had its little thin square pre-applied but when we took it off there was barely any left on the IHS to show where it made contact. After I put some of mine I had left it dropped his temps almost TWENTY DEGREES. Rediciouls
  8. Haha yeah..... windows license management... I think we will do the repair on the (A) system, I keep thinking there's something in windows that links it to the hardware it's in when installed, that's probably (hopefully) an old aspect of it though. Plus it'd be easier to migrate a complete instillation than have multiple problems at once to fight. I guess I'll give this a go and see if it works, then get back here if it doesn't. Appreciate the advice!
  9. Dammit I knew we should of unplugged the HDD when we did the upgrade, not even been a month too. That would also solve why it didn't ask for a key when installing the fresh OS. So I installed his OS using Rufus and a windows ISO and the whole gig, I think there was a repair option somewhere in there. I'm guessing it's easiest to just do this repair on (A)'s rig then basically it should be able to boot on any system, finally being a full windows install? We have the key too, retrieved from some powershell command off his HDD, so we should finally have a need for it?
  10. (A) has a hard drive he just upgraded from still in the system, it wasn't moved over for these tests.
  11. Someone please tell me there's an idea of what could be the problem here ;_;
  12. Helping a friend and I'm starting to hate computers. Friend (A) is buying another friend's (B) computer. (A) is only transferring in his SSD boot drive, test the system for a week or so, see if a problem (B) had with it shows up, then get on buying it. You would think "oh, just make sure it's connected and put in the top of the boot order list" you WOULD think that and so did I. Didn't work. Things we've tried to do and have had no affect: The drive DOES work in (A)'s computer, the drive is not borked. Setting the drive as boot option 1. It DOES show up in the list
  13. This has to be a thing by now right? Can I just connect my new laptop (an Aoris 7) to my desktop by some USB cable or even an Ethernet cable to just move steam games through to not have to waste time/bandwidth downloading them again? I know I can use a flash drive, which I was planning on doing before the first game came out to about 50GB vs. my 16GB drive, but there has to be a better way. And would I have to enable something to get it to work?
  14. This ended up being about the final nail for this, his stuff is out dated too much to go through this headache. He finally put his logic into words, he wanted to have a big m.2 setup since it's the newest hotness and wanted it to future proof as much as possible. Top of the line now means it'll hold up longer than a SATA SSD which is a step or two back at this point. Based off that logic I'm pushing him towards some basic ~500GB SATA SSD to hold him over until he upgrades enough parts to get what he really wants as basically standard fare. At that point his m.2 array will cost less and
