    HDD won't show up

    I believe your suggestion fixed it.Gonna try a few more boot ups just to be sure :laugh: Sorry for not mentioning Win10 earlier.Asked a few weeks back on another forum and was led to believe that it probably was irrelevant.

    HDD won't show up

    I will check SMART data later today and let you know. I had fast boot disabled, so that i wouldnt encounter that problem, but even with fast boot disabled, the HDD disappears after sleep, which is bothering me. Whenever I enter UEFI, the drive is detected. I'm using the second SATA port, which i...

    HDD won't show up

    So I've got an SSD drive for OS and storage, and a Toshiba DT01ACA200 2TB HDD for storage. I've been using these two on my system for over a year now without any problems. A few months now, my HDD does not appear after booting with Fast Boot or MSI Fast Boot. With normal boot it does appear on...

    Side panel fan on Phantom 410

    I have an NZXT Phantom 410, with 2 front intake fans, 1 rear exhaust , and 2 exhaust top fans on Corsair H100i.All fans are Corsair AF\SP 120mm quiet edition running at 7V for silence. Would a side panel 140mm fan be worth installing as intake? My main problem with side panel fans is that they...

    In my country I can find the M12II around the same price, but they're 80+ Bronze

    Some questions about GTX 770 SLI

    Are you talking by the way about Europe or US?Or is region irrelevant? Personally I was let down by both Corsair products I bought. H100i Led broke after installing latest Corsair firmware.Thankfully they sent me a new one without much hassle. TX650m fan was making noise on idle because it...

    Some questions about GTX 770 SLI

    Indeed Corsair's service is pretty good, although I've seen on many forums people recommend the EVGA over the Corsair one.

    Some questions about GTX 770 SLI

    Yeah that's what I'm probably gonna do and hopefully sell my old TX.Splitters don't feel right for a new pc. Is there any point going for 850W?

    Some questions about GTX 770 SLI

    I guess i could look for something like this. I thought this wasn't very safe to do, but after a quick search I didn't see anyone having problems with it.

    Some questions about GTX 770 SLI

    I don't think my TX650m can handle 2 770s.Even if it marginally can, I dont think it has the connectors. I wanted to ask about those PSUs.Glad you brought that up.I'm a bit concerned about the RM850 because, my experience with the Zero RPM feature wasn't good on the TX650m.I'll definatelly give...

    Some questions about GTX 770 SLI

    This seems to be the case. Looked at some Z87 boards, most have the same distance between the first two 32x slots.Between them there is usually one 1x slot, while mine has two, but the distance seems the same.

    Some questions about GTX 770 SLI

    I'm thinking of getting a second MSI N770 TF 2GD5/OC, in order to run latest games at ~120 fps without having to reduce graphics quality much. First of all I need to upgrade my 650W psu. I was thinking of getting a Corsair RM850,since it seems to have very nice features for it's price. Any...

    Laptop GPU overheating

    Yeah, but on the other side, If you see here, after he flips the mobo over to the CPU side, next to the empty CPU socket is a metal plate, under which is an Nvidia chip with thermal paste etc. Sadly I did not take any pictures, and the chip isnt very visible in the video, but Im just a bit...

    Laptop GPU overheating

    I opened it up again, seems I forgot to plug a cable. Strangely temps are still the same, same crashes occur and the fan on the heatsink is working. Any ideas? Strangely I think I found 2 Nvidia chips (apart from the CPU of course). Both have heatsinks on them, and i changed the thermal paste...

    Laptop GPU overheating

    This was actually the guide I used, but (unless I missed it) it doesn't go as far as removing the GPU. Anyway, I managed to take it all apart,had to take the whole mobo out to reach the GPU, replaced the thermal paste, but the screen does not work now^^. Hopefully I just forgot to plug something...

    Laptop GPU overheating

    I got my hands on an old Sony Vaio VGN-SZ71XN laptop, and i think it's GPU (Nvidia 8400M GS) is overheating on idle.On boot it's about 55 C, and 10 minutes after or so it stabilizes around 70 C, crashing after a few minutes of Youtube videos. I opened it up, replaced the CPU thermal paste (cpu...

    File copying speed questions

    Hello, a few days ago while copying a file to my flash drive, and painfully watching the speed at 2Mb\s this subject kinda intrigued me (especially because my first thought was that something is wrong with my drive:eek:) So anyway, say I'd like to copy a file from Drive A to B. From the little...

    GPU Stability stress testing

    What about Unigine crashing though? I read other people have similar problems with Unigine, some times even on stock settings. If the program\game stops working it's not necessarily because of the OC right? Unstable OC= driver error message artifacts and screen freeze? Should i just leave...

    GPU Stability stress testing

    Hello everyone, I've been trying to OC my GTX 770 (MSI N770 TF 2GD5\OC), i believe I hit a stable OC at +80 (1245 boost clock) + 240 (3744 memory clock) at 1.2V. The past few days I've been trying to push it a little further, for example +100 at 1.212V but I'm a bit confused with stress...

    Intel vs Samsung SSD

    I'm looking to buy an SSD to use as a boot drive. I'm looking at the Intel 330 series 240 GB , the Samsung 840 series 240 GB , and the Samsung 840 EVO 240 GB. All have the same price by the way. Also i already have an OCZ vertex 3, so do you think i should just buy an ~120 GB SSD for Windows...

    Need help choosing a new monitor

    Well the Asus monitor is kinda 100-150€ over my budget (costs about ~350€ here) but i'll think about saving for it. What about the ASUS VG23AH since it's just sliiightly over my budget? It has an IPS panel, but ASUS advertises it as a gaming monitor. Or for that matter, is there any 23" 120 Hz...
