  • I picked B450 and 3400G because these are "tried and true" I can start with. If I need more GPU juice I can always buy one later on. I thought about B550 but it won't support 3400G, I won't rule ...
  • I am hesitant to cross the floor at this point, not because the suggested Mac Mini M1 is not good, actually it probably is TOO good for my use case. Also, switching to a new system altogether is ...
  • LOL, I love the way you put it, but that's exactly what my suspicion is. I think I will do something like this: - create a new folder in my SSD drive and copy a few hundred RAW files into it - ...
  • That's my worry: doing all this and get little improvement. Does more threads not help? I should look into Intel again, I've been looking at AMD all along. I thought I would OC when I got the i5 ...
  • Created discussion thread Upgrading my PC

  • Except the XC and MK series I believe.
  • Replied in Slow boot
    CHKDSK did not find any problems with the 3TB drive. I defragmented it anyways but did not see any improvement on boot time.
  • Replied in Slow boot
    I disabled Marvel in BIOS but cannot find it in Device Manager. Under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers I only have Standard SATA AHCI Controller, and under Storage Controllers I only have Microsoft ...

    Did that and saw a whole lot if Event IDs listed. Will have to figure out what those mean.

    I tried Malwarebytes and it found several bitcoin miners. Don't know how they got here but I quarantined them. Will see if that helps. Thanks.
  • Created question thread Slow boot
    What's the slowest ever Win 10 boot from an SSD you've ever heard of? I am running Win 10 on a 1TB SSD (Crucial MX500) and the boot time is getting longer and longer. Normally I don't worry about ...
