Got a new OCUK build a month or so ago with a MPG X570 GAMING EDGE WIFI motherboard and everything is going well.

New 3950x Build - Fans stop ramping up/down 2 mins after boot
Hey folks, got a query I was hoping someone could help with.
Just got a new 3950x build from OCUK and it seems to be working fine apart from on initial boot up the CPU fan (on the water cooler) ramps up and down with CPU temp but...
My sister is looking to get a PC for my nephew to game and livestream from but this is something I have no idea about at all.
Unfortunately money is tight being Xmas so was wondering what the most basic while still functional spec would be. He plays Fortnite and Minecraft mainly but...
Would love to get more HGST ones but can only see Seagate and WD out there and have not had great reliability with either brands over the past decade.
Can I have some real world recommendations from owners on what they have thats worked out fine?
Thank you :)
Wel well well!
I've owned the 3 (Q6600) at 3.5GHz / 2 (not 2600k but the 3770K and currently run it still at 4.5GHz) and 1 (Cel 300A)
Great article and fully agree. My half decade old Ivy Bridge system is still kicking it!
Nice one Kyle!
Kinda backed up everything I'd thought myself - and Ive got an Ivy 3770K at 4.5GHz so wont be upgrading any time soon either.
I sure do miss the 90s arms race of AMD and Intel with double the performance every year and a bit

Been running a soak test on a new 10TB HGST He10 drive I bought last week. Ran h2test on it which wrote and verified the full disk which is spot on.
I then ran smartctl to see what the drive was reporting and saw a few problems (in my eyes):
The read recovery attempts and the...
Pretty much as the subject says - Will my 2012 build i3770K / Z77X Windows 7 64bit PC take a 10TB HDD ok?
Looking to switch the 2x 4TB drives for a 10TB (keeping the 4's for current backup) then adding a second 10 later on as needed.
Here's an odd one! Been asked to find out what it takes to put together a Minecraft LAN party style setup using 2nd hand lower spec PCs plus a server. Being honest never played it before but the kids its for all seem to be head over heels for it and looking around for what the basic...
Hi guys just got 4 x 4 TB drives HGST NAS ones and want to test them all before putting them into use on my PC.
What software should I use for this job in Windows?
Ive tried H2testw on memory cards and it works fine but not sure its the right tool for this job.
Was just sorting out the other halfs laptop and throwing on some extensions for chrome and was wondering what ones people use.
Looking at mine I've got:

I never buy WD for this reason but just as you point out the Deathstar IBM drives, IBM then Hitachi brought out some of the most reliable drives moving forward so maybe Seagate have upped their game with these being Archive devices ?
In recent times Ive used Intel SSDs, Samsung...
Just wondering if anyone has any experience of these new drives?
I was thinking of using one for storage of old projects that I like to have online access to but never really update (old video archives, events, weddings etc).
Just got a new laptop and upgraded it from 8.1 to 10 which was fine. As it only has a 128gb SSD and no HDD I want to get as much space available as possible.
Ive cleared off all the crapware using W10 reset but the different partitions are still there including an 11gb area I...
Great review Kyle. Ive got a 3 year old Ivy bridge 3770k at 4.5 and will stick with that for the time being though.
God I miss the days of massive speed jumps each year and the likes of the Celeron 300a
Just wondering what the best option is to encrypt an external hard drive to be used for backup and storing off site at a friends home.

Been asked to take a wad of photos and turn them into a decent looking slideshow - talking a good few hundred pics and they want the slide show to be just under an hour.
Just wondering what people would recommend for something like that if they have done it before.
