    Question about disk cloning

    I cloned with Macrium Reflect and if I start the cloned SSD (both by selecting it as a priority in the bios and by starting it alone connected) (I specify that it is a bios of an Asus P5GCMX MB so I don't think they are problems related to UEFI) it gives me as message at startup "Reboot and...

    Question about disk cloning

    One thing is not clear to me: if the disk to be cloned is 500GB, the space occupied is 150GB, can a 250GB target disk be used? Will the result be a 250GB final drive with 150 occupied and 100GB free usable?

    CPU upgrade on ASUS P5GC-MX / 1333

    The motherboard in question mounts an Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 and 3GB of DDR2. Turning to Windows 10, the performance has slightly decreased (the CPU is always busy between 50 and 70% while the ram is busy between 60-80%). Being the 32bit operating system I don't think there are options...

    Intel I7 4770K Overclock Limit

    I'm trying to overclock an I7 4770K mounted on an MSI Z87-G41 motherboard with 2X4GB DDR3 1886. (Latest Bios, Water Cooling) To find the maximum CPU frequency I set the RAM to 1600 with 1.5v, and I set the ring ratio to 30 (3.000 Mhz) with VCCIN 1.9v, I also disabled LLC EIST and C-state. By...

    Liquid cooling-VGA (WB only on GPU)

    So it is better to cool the memories and the VRM right? I could use small heatsinks attached with the thermal conductive double-sided pad (both already in my possession) on the memories and the VRM, placing an 8mm fan that blows towards them, as well as the WB on the GPU.

    Matching the Player to the Amplifier

    The needs at the moment are: use of the remote control and the mobile phone, from time to time also use the music on the phone, then maybe connect to a player in BT, most of the music is on an external HD (maybe in the future connect it to the network or use a NAS)

    Matching the Player to the Amplifier

    To listen to high quality digital music what I need to use as player, in combination with a decent Amp entry level (Band 500 euro, with analog inputs only)? It is sufficient to connect a notebook/tablet or devices of this type and use it as a player or I should use a mediaplayer or something else?

    Liquid cooling-VGA (WB only on GPU)

    If it cools down to the liquid on the video card using only the wb on the GPU (so it's not a full cover) there is a risk to the ram of deterioration or premature failure (or in general, a shorter average service life) compared to the state of normal receiving by the sink factory?
