I too have heard stories about memory cards and flash drives being sold with much less compacity than what was advertised on the package.

Ahh, here is a good one.

This mouse is cool (sometimes I have to double click as a click doesn't register but still works well) and the bigger size is good for my Carpal Tunnel.

 Coolness aside, maybe you need something a bit  shorter if the normal click is not coming naturally, I still have the Logitech M500 if you want to try, It's a bit shorter in length, might fit your hand better.

I took this will my cell and told OneEyed that I will post it. Don't know if the forums will allow the size limit though so might have to upload it to my YouTube channel.

Ya .. will have to upload to YouTube after all ...

I am so happy now! I have more ram now so as I type this I have 12Gb of memory free! Yay! Much better! Also my computer case and fans are clear of dust and got the big side fan in instead of the 2 little fans and the one in the back of the case started working again (sometimes still stops but keeping an eye on it). The 2 I had bought previously that were on the door (which replaced the big one when the old video card was too big to keep the big fan in the door) can easily be used if the back fan stops again.

Also I bought a 4Tb internal HDD but did not realize I used up all my bank account money to do so. Oops. Good thing I borrowed $50 from OneEyed. Thanks ONEEYED!!!!!

Good.  I'm glad to hear that you got all that sorted out.

Oh.  About that 4tb drive.  If you want to keep it as a single partition, don't use "primary partition".  I believe that there is a 2tb limit to that.  Use basic partition instead.

Actually the issue was in the drive format type:

At first he formatted as MBR, which means Windows 10 couldn't recognize the drive as  over 2tb properly. To overcome this, he had to either use GPT or make it two 2tb partitions on the 4tb hard drive. I didn't want it to be partitioned so he looked online and found out he should have chosen GPT but he wasn't familiar with that as it is a thing only since Win 10. It was a learning experience and now he knows for the future for all his PC clients.

I gotta get a camera as my cell phone doesn't cut it .. Also the 2nd pic (the blue side case window ... looks correct on my PC and cell phone but when I upload it here is shows it sideways. Can't fix it. :(

But I got the big fan back into the side door of my case:





Also thanks for One Eyed lending me money and helping me get the 4Tb on sale at Staples while it was on sale I now have been able to move all my movable games (not all I could get off C but a lot) to the new 4Tb HDD and freed up a substantial amount of room on my SSD!

https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/6888666

https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/59373603








I like OneEyed's look even if it looks better in person (I think the vid shows the coolness good enough but he doesn't think it is. The only way to get past the white out of the brightness into the digital camera lens would be to have either a non-digital camera or a better digital camera that makes up for this?). While I was at his place I was watching videos on other RBG set ups:





Makes me wonder how your set up is Sandman now when it comes to presentation. Mine is just blue and OneEyed does a pretty good job at cable management but I didn't take any pics of inside. Now I am thinking of going so. However I will wait til I get him over to play place to help with the case so I can get perfect angles. Too bad I don't have a pull out drawer on my computer desk to make this easier ;)

You should have use Cinebench R15 because your 2nd gen i5 doesn't support AVX instruction.

Oops!  I thought it was an i5.  Sorry.  Still.  I believe you would need at least a 7th gen Intel X skew processor with 6 cores or better to support AVX2.

If Dave can hook you up with a Z390 mainboard, I'll give you my old 8th gen i7 8700K 6 core / 12 thread processor.  That supports AVX2.
