    5600x Upgrade Woes

    Just curios if you were able to see any temps before the system shuts off. Sounds like the CPU is hitting it's thermal limit and shutting down the system.

    Going To 64GB RAM (Dual Rank and Dual Channel Question)

    His comment was about mixing two different speed kits, like 3200 and 3600. Just buy the second kit and put it and see if you can get it all to run at 3600Mhz.

    Going To 64GB RAM (Dual Rank and Dual Channel Question)

    he means if you put in slower ram, the faster ram will run at the slower speed, which won't apply to you if you buy the same ram you already have. The issue I had could probably be fixed by playing more in the BIOS with the voltages but I didn't have time to mess with the machine before he had...

    Going To 64GB RAM (Dual Rank and Dual Channel Question)

    I am running 4x 16GB sticks in mine and it's still dual channel and dual rank. I think I read that if you have single rank dimms, running 4 sticks will be like dual rank or something along those lines, but you already have dual rank ram so just get the same set, or buy a 64GB kit and sell the...

    can I disable NVMe slot?

    This is what you want to do, install Windows on the NVME, then remove the NVME and install windows on the SATA drive. After you get both installed, re-install the NVME and then when the PC is booting you can set the NVME as the 1st boot device and if you want to boot from the SATA drive, just...

    PSA: check your pinouts on both parts before doing something sketchy.

    When I swapped from a Corsair PSU to an EVGA one, I decided to just buy the EVGA 12pin cable vs trying to re-pin the Corsair one if it was different.

    PSA: check your pinouts on both parts before doing something sketchy.

    Lately I've been saving the boxes and keeping the cables in them. Some of the EVGA PSU's I've bought came with a nice EVGA branded storage bag to hold the extra cables.

    PSA: check your pinouts on both parts before doing something sketchy.

    I was just thinking about this last night while in bed. modular PSU's have been around for 20 years or so, in that time, they could have standardized the pinouts and cut down on e-waste from left over cables. I have cables from various PSU's that are just taking up space and I can't remember...

    How long do motherboards generally last?

    My Amiga 3000T worked great still when I sold it in 2017. It was 25 years old. It's really clean for a 25 year old machine, I never cleaned it.

    Case selection = SAD!

    Yep. I bought it in 2004 or so then traded it to my brother in 2010 or 2011, he then traded it to another friend a year or so later, then that friend traded it to another friend who had it when I was buying a dual xeon from him in mid 2016. He pointed out that he had my old YY-0221 case and I...

    External hard drive

    The Samsung would probably be the faster one with USB3, should easily do max read and write speed of the USB3 interface. I personally would choose the Samsung myself.

    External hard drive

    It seems that a lot of the smaller than 10TB external drives may be of the SMR type and not CMR. CMR is the preferred drive type especially if you are running an array or replacing files since SMR has much lower write speeds when re-writing data. For strictly external use, I currently use a...

    Help me spend $1000 on speakers

    I have a pair of them. I bought them mainly to get the speakers up to the height of the bottom of the monitor. they actually do fix the bass by isolating the speaker from the table surface so that was a nice benefit as well. I paid $100 for the ones I am using from a local Guitar Center store...

    Listening mp3 songs/albums in the car

    you can use Audacity to cut up the songs into individual tracks I haven't used it but it should work like most audio programs like SoundForge that I use. You would highlight the section of the song you want, copy it and create a new track and paste it into the new...

    HF FS/T scam - thoughts / a nod to the community

    the IRS thing is not for a $600+ transaction, it's for $600 total over the course of a year. If you received 10 Paypal payments for $60 each, paypal will send you that tax form for the $600 in transactions. this is for all of the e-payment processers except for Zelle I believe since that is...

    Ryzen 5 5500 $60 on Amazon

    My Bad, I didn't even notice the price was from one of those fly by night accounts. I did get a decent price on the one I ordered in January. When I first placed the order it had a mid January delivery date, about 2 weeks. A couple of days later they said the item was arriving about 1 week...

    LG 45″ OLED Ultrawide 5120 x 2160@165Hz in development (ETA Q1 2025)

    The only thing with the LG is the 1 year warranty. Dell has 3 year advance replacement warranty for only 1 stuck or dead pixel, so that is worth the extra cost in my book.

    @ drives on one?

    What you can do is clone the C Drive to the new one and make a D partition on the new one afterwards and copy the D drive to it. Example since you didn't say the size of the drives you have. if you have a 1TB C drive and a 1TB D drive, then you can get a 2TB or larger 3rd drive, clone C to the...

    PNY 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive $8.95 @ Amazon

    I have the 2TB version in a Sabrent enclosure, but it's much larger and not plug and play, you need to have a cable with you. The Sandisk is small and you can carry it around in your pocket without it feeling really bulky.
