  1. I think it could be that fast start up is enabled and it doesn't really shut down, just goes into deep sleep so when I unplug that is improper shutdown in a sense. I have now disabled fast startup. Someone on another forum told me about this.
  2. I checked on WD software and its at 100 percent health with no issues. I attached the crystal disk info test as well. Please have a look.
  3. Absolutely not worth the risk. Metal on PCB might short it. I agree with Martin, you should put some insulating material between the 2. But I'd say just stay away from that till you change case!
  4. After I don't press any key, it scans and repairs my drive apparently and then boots up fine. This happened twice since November so is not a recurring issue. Once 2-3 weeks ago when I upgraded the CPU cooler and booted and once this morning randomly. And I always shut down my pc the right way. Both times this happened my PC was shut down properly I do not have any drive issues, and this happens randomly, twice since I got my prebuilt pc in November 2020. I have M.2 512GB SSD from WD, and extra 500GB Samsung Evo 860 SSD. I checked the health of the M.2 and
  5. I recently installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO RGB Black Edition, and I have all cables connected the proper way. The rgb header is plugged in so that the arrow is pointing to the 12V pin on the motherboard's connector. Still, when I boot up the rgb turns on for a few seconds and turns off again and I cannot control it once I am all logged in. But all other RGB and lighting that came WITH the PC is working fine My pc is a prebuilt Lenovo and the RGB software for Lenovo does not recognise this. I am planning to buy a cooler master rgb controller soon, but until then I do not know w
  6. Have you tried MSI afterburner? I use it and CPU is at 50-60% usage and I get top performance in games.
  7. I have same processor, haven't really paid attention to the clock while running games but maybe it has to do with how the CPU handles games with its hyperthreaded threads and cores compared to sitting idle. I wouldn't worry about it or tweak anything.
  8. There is no way of saying for sure without lifting the heatsink, hence why I asked here as more experienced builders can gauge the amount needed.
  9. https://imgur.com/gallery/2LSrc0g#LkpqlIr I applied this and an extra really small drop on the right hand side of the blob of paste. Will this much be ok, and will my motherboard and cpu be protected from shorts? My cooling is all good at 26-32 C idle and 68C under heavy load (gaming). I applied a slightly large pea dot initially, and removed half of it so that's why this looks a bit messy, but the actual blob of the paste is ~0.6cm Hyper 212 EVO Black RGB edition Cooler: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07H9JL1P8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. OK thank you for your help again. I remember you from my post about the tight cooler xD.
  11. Hi I recently installed a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Black RGB edition. First I cleaned off the previous old thermal paste with 99% IPA. I applied the thermal paste properly, and then reseated the heatsink a few times (3 or 4). once during installation and a few times 2-3 hours later (this was when I encountered some boot issues and asked a forum, will include the link). I recently found out, people usually re-apply every time they remove heatsink. But I removed it more than 1 time and did not re-apply. I currently have no thermal issues with this, under heavy load the max it gets
  12. I will attach an image of my RGB header, I have plugged this currently into the 4 pin RGB header. But yes I will consider getting the adapter, Thank you for your help. Also, if you don't mind could you provide some of your insight into this issue I had:
  13. This makes so much sense, thank you for being so helpful.
  14. I used : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07H9JL1P8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It is equipped with spring mechanisms, so I wouldn't have thought it would have been easy to overtighten. Do you think I should loosen it up a bit more to be safe or is it fine the way it is right now?
