    A Tale of broken laptops, trades, and epic wins :D

    Scored myself a logitech G903 mouse for $60 second hand, but 'as new' with box and all accessories paired with the powerplay pad i won off facebook, this is one hella nice setup for a low price edit: something about the RGB lights screws with the camera, and defocuses it - cant take nice pics

    Going from Z97 to AM4, can I use same SSD containing my previous Windows install?

    The only time i've had issues, i resolved them by shutting down into safe mode first this is a copy-paste for changing between IDE/AHCI/RAID modes, but is also useful for situations where USB drivers dont load, or you get BSODS from drivers you need to remove (had this with Asus mobos, had to...

    PC won't power up if the 4-pin CPU connector is connected

    it means you've missed something else as well leave that 4 pin connected and check everything else, clear pictures of the system as well as filling out your system specs HERE would help

    X5650 sounding temp alarm .

    OP is correct, re-seating the CPU can solve issues with missing memory channels on intel platforms. I had a dirty pad on a 4770k cause 3 of the 4 ram slots to not be detected, as an example. All we can really say here is remount the cooler and repaste it again, and make sure clocks and voltages...

    Random and Unexplained Latency Spike Issues! Help Needed!

    isolation tests, or a router with shaping/per device bandwidth metering Isolation test wont really help with short term testing, since it could vary based on external factors (app updates, people using devices such as taking photos)

    sorry trav, but you're made a very strange claim about something we clearly know the reasons for.

    Random and Unexplained Latency Spike Issues! Help Needed!

    very likely another device on the network, only real way to prevent that is a router with bandwidth shaping (not the same as QoS) For an obvious example, my phone with google photos automatically uploads photos and videos when on wifi - so something as simple as someone taking a photo can cause...

    What is needed to edit/render vidoes

    turbo is single core, not all core Go fire up one of your rendering programs and see what the cores actually run at - the base clock is kind of important for all-core tasks

    What is needed to edit/render vidoes

    on a laptop you're going to hit wattage/thermal limits on the CPU, thats probably going to hold you back the most - and there isnt anything you can really do to fix that 8850h is only a 2.6Ghz CPU when all cores are active
