    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC has trouble starting.

    Nothing to do with Gen 3/Gen 4 PCIe (which is what I assume you mean). It's to do with the difference between a 'slower' SATA SSD and an 'faster' m.2 SSD with orders of magnitude greater performance! The advice was simply to point out that if you're going to spend the time and effort to wipe &...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST PC has trouble starting.

    If it was me, and was having to do a full wipe & reinstall of Windows, I'd also consider putting a smaller, faster m.2 SSD in there just for the OS/Apps...and move the 1TB PCS SSD to one of your spare m.2 slots.

    Think I need to wait for a sale on 2TB m2 SSDs before I install any more games.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 (32" 4k curved @ 240hz!!!)

    Seems like we might have to take Samsung's performance claims with a healthy dose of salt, as they've been found to have 'cheated' by having benchmarking mode software which ramps up brightness during specific standardised tests...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 (32" 4k curved @ 240hz!!!)

    Not seen anything about this on here, and very little on youtube...but what monster of a GPU would you need to drive this at 240hz. About £1300 in the UK, supposednly available in June in the US, and other regions shortly after...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Farewell, Internet Explorer…

    Our company first starting moving away from IE a good few years ago, and finally switched completely at the beginning of the year...but still hasn't removed the icon from the taskbar of out 50k+ Windows machines (we can't do it ourselves as we need local admin rights). But then I shouldn't be...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST LED Lights Only Flashing or Solid red.

    You've got me worried now, as I've used iCUE 4 since it was released over a year ago - and that's with a toasty 5800X :unsure:

    With an RTX3080Ti and a 5800X (plus 32GB ram), I see about 50fps at ultra at 1440p. If I drop down a level or two in quality (with usually no discernible visual difference) then I can get it into the 70fps range. Not sure what you'd have to do to get a solid 60fps at 4k...but it's a flight...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Zotac Firestorm Lighting Discussion

    Before I sold mine, I used some tiny strips of spotlight filters/gels (i.e. high-temp coloured transparencies) left over from a short stint working in lighting at a theatre, to make a rainbow effect. Took them off before I sold it though.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST A New Case from Corsair - It's Eyewateringly Expensive

    So when are wireless cables coming out :ROFLMAO: Obviously couldn't be bothered making these straight :unsure:

    Yes, but...ULTRA!!!!! Need is irrelevant...WANT is more important :ROFLMAO: Wonder if there'll be a plug'n'play upgrade available so that I can swap an M2/M3/M4 into mine :unsure: (it's Apple, so less than a snowball in hell's chance).

    I've got the Gold pack from 2015...but it was for this will give me a chance to replay it on a proper gaming machine ;)

    If you use ArmoryCrate (i.e. have an Asus motherboard), then yes it's normal. It can cause issues with Corsair iCue if you don't follow the installation order and plug-in/SDK instructions...but I just disabled everything other than the FanExpert software.

    It's part of Asus ArmoryCrate software for controlling fans/RGB/etc.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Lockdown - What's Worth a Watch?

    The cadence of the story does ebb & flow a little…but there are some nice character background stories in the later series/episodes, so well worth persisting.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST With regards to "Futureproofing"

    This is even more important of you were/are into Apple computers, as very few of them could be upgraded easily after you’d bought them…so you made sure you maxed them out initially. The earlier and ‘pro’ level Macs were relatively straightforward to unscrew unclip to add RAM or a co-processor...
