    PC deteriorating, first random freezes that kept increasing in frequency, then all types of BSOD's, and now not bootable. Help me pinpoint the culprit

    That's scary. Yes replacing a cpu is much easier but how should I know it is the cpu before I change anything? It doesn't seems like it is the cpu. This cpu was overclocked to 5 GHz but I had to take it back to stock because it became unstable after like ~6 Years of overclocking. Maybe this is...

    That's tricky. I hates when something tests okay but it is actually faulty. I can do what you suggested, but it takes time to do that and I don't have that time luxury. I will see.

    Yes. I already tried a new drive. But I didn't disconnect others. Will try it alone and see.

    Okay so this is an older build of mine. About 10 years old I think. It is this build actually: https://hardforum.com/threads/okay-here-is-my-new-build-please-critique-it.1671000/ https://hardforum.com/threads/my-new-i7-2700k-build-log-excited.1680769/ It is an 2700K CPU based build in an Asus...

    Threadripper is no more!

    I don't think we need more explanation on why HEDT is no longer a good option for CPU makers. You guys made it very clear. I now don't know what to get !!! The last available HEDT (aka 3970x threadripper) or the new generation of 5950x. It will be the later of course but I wanted 32 cores:(...

    Buying a 4k monitor for kids gaming and everything else that a casual home user does with his pc.

    Yeah, I can see that the xiaomi is not IPS but its price is tempting. For myself, I have only gotten IPS monitors. I think I'll just stick to IPS. If 4k is only for text clarity, then why everybody is willing to get a 4k resolution monitor to game with? I mean, why is 4k a thing for gaming...

    Buying a 4k monitor for kids gaming and everything else that a casual home user does with his pc.

    This is not 4k but it is ultra-wide and curved which he likes, and it is super cheap: https://www.eteknix.com/xiaomi-34-ultrawide-qhd-144hz-freesync-curved-gaming-monitor-review/ I can find it for ~380USD. I don't know but I like its price for what it offers.

    I previously discussed this setup before here: https://hardforum.com/threads/just-critique-this-build-or-give-me-comments-it-is-for-a-friend.2014360/ What monitor would you recommend for him? He said he is willing to spend up to 1000 USD on the monitor, and then decide on the video card as it...

    Well said Dan. I don't understand business, but I see what you are saying.

    Accidentally ran attrib -h -r -s /s /d c: \*.* on my C: (OS drive) and now all files have different attributes, how to restore to defaults?

    Oh guys! Thanks for all the input. The thing is that this install is in one of the laptops my family uses, hence it is not being taken care of heavily. My main machines all have backups, but not this one. Anyways, I remember in the old days you can force reinstall windows and it will just...

    Accidentally ran attrib -h -r -s /s /d c: \*.* on my C: (OS drive) and now all files have different attributes, how to restore to defaults?

    I suspected a virus in my system because I wasn't able to view hidden files in some folders even after I select view hidden files in folder options in windows explorer and ended up running the command in the title for my c: drive. It didn't execute fully because access to some files was denied...

    Just critique this build or give me comments. It is for a friend.

    Thanks buddy. My friend is in the US currently and is near a microcenter. I don't know if that helps but he will try.

    Just critique this build or give me comments. It is for a friend.

    My friend wants to go with the new i7 12700K cpu, so he should change the motherboard. He will return what he bought and get the 12700K when it is released .There is an equivalent Z690 board, right? How about the ram? But I think it only supports DDR4. What would be a good mobo to go for DDR5...
