    Sony's Mark Cerny to Detail PS5 Architecture March 18th

    100% for me as well, if this does pan out, they'll have my money.

    Samsung 970 Evo Plus nVMe Question

    So, as an ending to this, I swapped the drives around between the 2 nVMe slots on the board and now the initial drive has been picked up as the SCSI device. It would the. Just appear that the board’s (a ASUS Maximus XI Hero WiFi) 2nd (I.E. Lower) M.2 slot reads the drives in a different manner...

    Samsung 970 Evo Plus nVMe Question

    Yeah good point, I’ll give that a crack. Yeah I already have it installed. Hmmm I was thinking that may be the case.

    Samsung 970 Evo Plus nVMe Question

    You are right, I’m blind lol. Ok, so the first drive is listed under “Intel PCIe Express Root Port #9 - A330” & the 2nd, incorrectly named one, shows up under “Intel PCIe Express Root Port #21 - A32C”. Both are then under a subheading for the Samsung nvme controller.

    Samsung 970 Evo Plus nVMe Question

    I tried this but I couldn’t see the drives. Or the nVMe controllers listed. When I am looking at Device Manager normally I can see 2 Samsung nvme controllers, but not under the view you mention.

    Samsung 970 Evo Plus nVMe Question

    Hopefully this will be an easily answered question but I just built a new system with a 1TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus nVMe as its boot drive. Once I had Windows in it and installed the Samsung nVMe driver on, I installed a 2nd nVMe of the same type into the system. In Windows Device Manager & in Task...

    Windows 10 Update Error 0xe0000100

    Yeah, see, so I ran that same command again just now and I got the same message (i.e. No corruption detected), but the updates still fail with the same error message.

    Windows 10 Update Error 0xe0000100

    Damn, that is unfortunate. Looks like I have a bit of work ahead of me (I have hardware to build a new rig) but my hope was that I could repair my current O/S install and then clone the drives to the new ones I got.

    Windows 10 Update Error 0xe0000100

    All, Back in November I updated my Windows 10 install to 1909 (previously was 1809) and since then, with both the November 2019 and December 2019 monthly updates, they are now failing with the error code of 0xe0000100. I've tried running the following in an elevated command prompt: net stop...

    Scythe Unveils Shuriken 2 SCSK-2000 Low-profile CPU Cooler

    Yeah, I am a fan of Scythe coolers, I have one in my Node 202 which works beautifully. The only way for me to get one here in Australia, at a reasonable price, was to order it from Amazon US.

    Can Seagate's Barracuda be trusted for data now a days?

    This is obviously my own personal experience but I have not had a problem with any Seagate Barracuda drives that I've ever purchased (the bulk have been 2TB's). I have read all of the reports about reliability problems and the like but in almost 20 years of building my own PC's and that, I've...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 441.20 WHQL Drivers

    I thought that it was just me!!! Does that driver version co-operate with GTA V? Don't get crashes? I would 2nd this....GTA V worked perfectly fine before they force implemented the Rockstar Launcher...after that, stuff started to break.

    Night Fury - SR-2 [dual LGA1366]

    May I make a suggestion & take a look at what TechYesCity on YouTube did with one of these if you haven’t already. He did an SR2 build not long ago and came out awesome. Perhaps join his Discord and drop a message about it?

    New Gaming PC Advice

    I'll take a look at that one, cheers! Yeah, the existing PSU is going to remain with the bulk of the current system, will need a new one.

    New Gaming PC Advice

    Anyone have any ideas on suitable PSU’s? I’ve had great life with the Corsair AX860i in the current system so I’d probably lean towards another Corsair and I’m told that the Seasonic Prime series of PSU’s are awesome too but just not sure atm.

    New Gaming PC Advice

    Good advice, cheers! Not sure if I'm keen to wait until DDR5 is released, especially down here in AU. I'm sure we'll get hit with an Australia Tax on that. Yeah, I'm most likely going to do it sooner than a DDR5 launch. Well, you're assuming I am gaming at 60fps. I have a 165Hz refresh...

    New Gaming PC Advice

    I'll def have a look at that. Cheers for that! That was actually an error, I was messing around with the build list and I thought I had removed the additional set. Was a my bad. Nothing is wrong with the 850 Pro's but they are actually going to be remaining in that original system. I need new...

    New Gaming PC Advice

    Hi All, So, I'm at a point now where I think I'm ready to build a new PC to replace my aging Z87 platform. I'll start straight off with specs of the current rig: CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K @ 4.4Ghz 1.20V CPU Cooler & System Fans: NZXT Kraken X52 in Push Config (Getting load temps on CPU of...

    EPIC CEO Tim Sweeney: "Exclusives do Work"

    Sweeney is full of crap when he says that these actions can lead to a price reduction. It won't. All it'll do is just lead to games being charged for the same or more due to the higher profits. It doesn't benefit gamers.

    Recommendations for PC for a friend

    So, a bit of an update on this after speaking to my friend over the weekend. He's going to hang in there for the moment until the Ryzen 3000 chips are actually available so we can see the pricing etc. If it presents itself as a non-viable option due to pricing, he's going to go with one of the...

    Recommendations for PC for a friend

    Yeah, I totally understand what you’re saying there mate, but going by with how I’ve seen new hardware launches go for here in AU, we get completely destroyed on pricing, regardless of the RRP’s or whatever the pricing is in the US. No way to actually know for certain until the actual launch...

    Recommendations for PC for a friend

    I really appreciate everyone’s feedback and suggestions on this one. I’ll be seeing my mate this upcoming weekend so I’ll have a sit down and have a chat with him to find out what he wants to do. I don’t think Ryzen 3000 will be an option due to the impending price rise that’s going to come with...

    Recommendations for PC for a friend

    Thanks for your input on this one mate, unfortunately the 2nd hand market down here in Sydney isn’t fantastic. The issue I tend to find is that people seem to over estimate the value of their old hardware and it tends to keep the pricing of older hardware quite high. I do keep a lookout for any...

    Recommendations for PC for a friend

    Thanks for that mate, yeah, the pricing that we get hit with down here is pretty shocking. It's why I've been struggling to get something suitable together for him. Cheers again for that one.
