  1. Rename TN&R to simply "Tech News"

    Also since linking to any other sites reviews can be seen as advertising, I don't see point of having "reviews" mentioned in name.
  2. Windows 10 OEM version transfer

    That is valid option only if your current drive is as big or smaller than new drive. Otherwise you need to migrate just files that are nessessary. Both will require both drives to be connected at the same time. So it really is easier to get pure ISO (browser spoofing can be done with addon).
  3. Advice on Windows 10 purchase

    Yup. Just making sure. There are some cheap people out there. I admit that I have OEM copy, but at least I paid full price of €90 for it back in 2010. Both OEM and retail will be fine with changing most part. Its the motherboard that matters. The linked one is just right. It will be valid for 1 PC at the time for as long as you wish to use it. Even when MS finally pulls the plug and stops security updates. Last, if there's next time possibility to register key for free upgrade, I can recommend doing some research on conditions. I also thought that it would mean I have to change OS right away. Instead I did register key and turned all automatic updates off. I had the right to upgrade reserved for 1.5 years until this January when I finally moved from Win7 to Win10.
  4. It depends on creator/channel whether they have archives for streams turned on or not. Some have, other don't. If they don't, then there is no way. YT probably has small snippet as cache, but nothing more.
  5. JAPAN

    I've heard that its worth of dumbsterdive when Sony or Nintendo releases some new console. Teens throw old stuff away.
  6. Uhm, have you been living under a rock? This has been news for past month.
  7. Do I need a Fan controller

    You are going for Gigabyte, the brand least known for good fan control. I still would try and see how it works before buying any controller. Bay controllers aren't best choice even then. If I would be shopping for extra fan controller, I would go for NZXT Grid+. I don't like CAM, but dislike Corsair in general (they have Commander Mini/Pro which uses Link for controls).
  8. About Intel Stock Cooler

    Pharmacy/drug store. But you really don't need that stuff. Coffee filter or soft paper towel is quite enough.
  9. Fan control software?

    Speedfan might be dead end. Dev has already stated that he can't provide support for new boards (or rather fan controllers) unless he can get schematics for them. So most current gen boards aren't supported. There are some, like Taichi boards from AsRock and some MSI boards are supported. Gigabyte, on the other hand, has had very bad fan control support for years now. I've known that from this Haswell gen board I have, and its continued since. I suppose they are getting better, maybe in next 10 years. One thing you can try is to update BIOS. If you haven't already. Other than that, I don't know any out-of-the-box softwares which would work. Or would provide curves and that scale of control. There are software that can do very crude controlling if mobo supports it (they might be no-go for same reasons as with Speedfan). So on Gigabyte boards your only real option is to get hardware controler. Either one with knobs (like the one your case has), or NZXT Grid+/Corsair Commander.
  10. I have a ssd with windows

    Has that drive been used in another system? If it has, you probably need to reinstall Win7. Win7 doesn't like hardware changes. In best case you get just some minor hickups and don't even notice. In worst case its BSODs and boot loops.
  11. Windows system repair

    So its not "just installed". You just shoved drive to next system. Windows 10 is only of the line-up which has less changed to not work than work. You need to reinstall. There's some driver missing that prevents system from booting.
  12. Advice on Windows 10 purchase

    Thats normal retail price. Its been that for Home edition since Vista, changing bit with £$€120-165 range. Microsoft site has the static price and you can usually get it bit cheaper from retailers. OEM versions are usually some 30-40% cheaper (these would be legit OEMs, not those super-cheap keys). @Ziggzu, OEM means its single-use key. Once installed can't be transferred. They are cheaper than retail (1 per device but can be transferred) because they are intended for system builders, laptop manufacturers and so on. Home edition is the one you are looking for. There's one version below that, but it lacks many major features. One up would be Pro. I don't know what "Full" would mean. I would recommend you man-up and get retail or legit OEM. You can also continue with Win8 or 8.1 (requires call to MS), they have support still for few more years. There isn't at the moment any "lifetime" versions for Windows. Microsoft has support length for each OS and we can't know for sure if they do free upgrade options when new OS arrives. Or are they going for Linux and Apple route of just updating one version of OS.
  13. Windows 10 OEM version transfer

    There are couple ways to get pure ISO. If you want one with your laptops drivers and other stuff (aka bloat), you need to get recovery media from manufacturer. You can get pure ISO from Microsoft by either spoofing your browser to look like non-Windows machine, or by using mirror site (there don't have latest patches included). Either way, key is stored to mobo and will activate when you first boot to desktop.
  14. Broken UI Elements.

    Those appear when site load too slowly. Refreshing helps. If not, it might be issue on your end.
  15. TOS Popup/Clickthrough not Night Theme compatible

    Worked for me too. Someone forgot to clear formatting after pasting.
