In Topic: Want to sell my Ryzen 1700 and get a 8700k. Is it stupid/greedy? Or is it OK?

Wouldn't a 8700K greatly improve the frames per second on his 1080 Ti compared to an Ryzen 1700? He also does need higher frame rates since his monitor supports it. Plus he can further overclock the 8700K compared to the Ryzen 1700. I would sell the 1700 and go with a 8700K.


With 1440P he wouldn't notice, since the GPU is at the front line then.

Even Ryzen 1600 can handle a 1080Ti fine, CPU bottlenecks are a thing of the past with hexacores being the standard.

You should be able to tell if there will be a problem, your charger will get hot not just warm, the same thing with the battery if it feels hot that means there is a short in it and you should not use it. I would just leave it unplugged when not in use to be on the safe side. I've used laptops with bad batterys for years with no problems and the charging liite were always on.As long as the battery dosen't short out it will be fine.


The charger is warm, but not "hot" per-se.

The battery itself is cool, does not feel warm, but that could be because of the casing, it has a shroud covering it.

Alright, i figured the battery was defect, but i still have a concern.


If i leave the charger in for its use for the rest of the time, does this have any dangers like overheating the battery (or overcharging so to say) since the laptop is in constant charging mode, or is it safe for as long as i use the laptop while it is in the charger and leave it out when i do not use it?

In Topic: Odd behaviour HDD

I don't know a whole lot about windows 10.., so grain of salt with me ;)


but, the disk usage going to 100% sounds pretty normal. I would guess that it's just the pagefile being utilized.


The "server execution failed" is probably application specific. Do you generally see it after watching videos or what?


The "clicking" is a little bit more concerning. I've had drives where you can here the spindle click that have lasted for a long time, but usually that's a bad sign, so it's definitely good that you backed everything up. You did say it only happens when you initially access a file, so maybe you're just hearing the spindle moving and your drive is unusually loud. But again, usually when I hear hdd "clicking", I think, uh oh.



(EDIT: If you don't want the 100%, I think there should be pagefile settings you can adjust somewhere)


Regarding the clicking sound, it only clicks once, after that, i would not hear it unless i reboot the system.

Pagefile options did not give me any immediate answers, so i guess it could be something else (i already disabled power savings, in case people wondered, so it does not turn of every x minutes)


The "server execution failed" error only comes after the 100% "bug" is going away, otherwise, it never shows up.
