    How to clone a drive to one that requires larger cluster size?

    So I'm trying to copy over my 8GB drive's contents to my new 32GB (RAID 0). But I've yet to find a way to do this without limiting myself to 16TBs on the new array, because the cloning process maintains the cluster size of the 8TB. Any way to do this?

    Plex server: NAS vs PC

    I've never run a NAS - I've always had my desktop PC running 24/7 for my file needs. But I did just order some larger drives and am now wondering if I should explore a NAS. I guess my question is - given the fact that my PC is on 24/7 anyways (including using Plex Pass for my OTA TV tuner)...

    ASUS ROG GT-AXE11000 only netting 200-500mbps WiFi

    I've gone through two modems in the past week; an Arris S33 and now a Motorola MB8621 - both of which are optimal for the 1200mbps Xfinity plan I'm on. When I run any of my 2.5gbps capable devices wired directly to the modem, I get around 1000mbps. When I connect the modem to the router and run...

    Intel's Rocket Lake Blasts Off With Fewer Cores, Higher Pricing

    "As a result, Rocket Lake's flagship $539 Core i9-11900K comes to market with eight cores while the previous-gen Core i9 family came with 10 cores and AMD's leading chips stretch up to 16. Surprisingly, Intel has actually hiked its recommended pricing on its highest-end chips despite this...

    Significant stability issues since installing 5700 XT

    Hey guys, When I installed this card back in August, I attributed some stability issues to the freshness of the drivers. But they've continued to plague me. Even with regular usage of DDU and updates to the chipset and GPU drivers, I am now in a spot where I can barely load into the menus for...

    So... Did AMD increase the boost freq on the 50th A. 5700 XT?

    I picked up an open boxed 5700 XT Anniversary which I'm getting into right now. And the first thing I noticed is that GPU-Z and Afterburner are both reporting the Boost Freq as 2079MHz? Has AMD done something to these mid-revision or did I buy a card that's been modified? And here she is...

    Crazy-high Ryzen 3900X temperatures (95c immediately)

    Ryzen 3900X with a Corsair H100i rad and MX-4 in between. ASRock X370 Taichi. I just noticed that temps were idling at 70ish and immediately hitting the 95c thermal limit on load. Which got me looking at voltages and the BIOS had the CPU at 1.45ish for god knows what reason. So with a bit of...

    Ryzen 9 3900X @ Best Buy for $449.99 (YMMV)

    So I've had the 3900X in my Best Buy Saved Cart for a while and watched as it went into and out of stock, mostly not even letting me attempt to check out with it and then error out the few times it did. Yesterday on an error out I noticed a popup dialogue that said to order the item in-store...

    Attempting to revive HD 5870 Eyefinity - help?

    So I picked up this guy online, mostly for the novelty, and also because I figured with 2GBs of RAM and DX11 support it'd make a solid card for my backup Phenom rig. But it's definitely got an issue of some sort. Upon installing the card and powering the machine on, the card's fan goes into...

    EliteBook 8460p no longer going to sleep when closed

    Hey guys, Yesterday I decided to replace the palm rest of my 8460p. It's definitely an extensive teardown but nothing I wasn't comfortable with, especially after having already upgraded the display and the require video cable that goes though the hinge. All works well upon reboot except that...

    Athlon 860K throttling to 3.5GHz?

    I picked up an MSI A88XM Gaming to go with my Athlon X4 860K. Been trying my hand at OCing the system, but before I can get there I'm trying to understand why it's throttling to 3.5GHz immediately under load with randon, very brief spikes up to full multiplier speed. Temps are in the 60-65c...

    Unable to install DirectX on Vista x64

    Just threw together my new PC this morning. Left for work and picked up Tiberium Wars on the way home. When I launch it, it tells me I need DirectX (been away from Windows for a while, thought it was supposed to have been part of Vista). So, I go to MS's DirectX site, download the web...
