    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I'm a bit concerned, it seems to be region locked. I live in the Caribbean and don't have an option to buy ANYTHING on the Rockstar store. Hopefully it's only region locked for sales and not for play.

    NVMe drive for new build...

    Benches To put this in perspective: my 3 year-old 950 Pro feels instantanious. Endurance-wise, I've only written 8.1tb over that period to the 950 Pro with light-ish usage. If you look at the figures, the 970 Evo Plus bests the same generation Pro right now.

    NVMe drive for new build...

    I recently replaced a 512gb 950 Pro with a 1tb 970 Evo Plus. I benched both with Magician, the 970 beats the 950 by about 1.5x in reads and 3x in writes (Possibly the other way round, I'm not near my computer, but still a big step up either way!) but I honestly see no difference. Save your money...

    Currently running an MSI Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon with a 1tb 970 Evo Plus and a 512gb 950 Pro, both at x4 speed.

    Any problems running Samsung and Corsair NVMe drives in the same system?

    The Samsung has its own driver though, hoping they all play nice!

    Any problems running Samsung and Corsair NVMe drives in the same system?

    I've got a 1tb 970 Evo Plus in my current system and thinking of adding a Corsair MP510. Has anybody come up against any driver problems running these together? Does the MP510 need any extra drivers apart from the default Windows ones?

    Bent socket pin: this fix looks ok?

    And yours were all good? Nothing weird popping up at a later time?

    Bent socket pin: this fix looks ok?

    I’ve been using it even before I bent it back slightly, seems ok, but I know with bent pins issues can sometimes be subtle.

    Bent socket pin: this fix looks ok?

    Thanks! I’d seen the pin out diagram and thought that’s what it said but I wasn’t quite sure, it was pretty lo res.

    Bent socket pin: this fix looks ok?

    I noticed when installing my new mobo one of the pins was slightly off, I could see it wasn't quite lining up right if I looked from a low angle. It wasn't a huge deviation but I managed to get it back *almost* straight to the point where you can't see it's off just by eyeballing it (In fact, I...

    MSI Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon XMP LED

    PS It's not one of the LEDs for the DIMM slots to show the memory is installed correctly. I have all four slots populated and all four corresponding LEDs light up correctly.
