This is for someone not tech savvy and I've made up a system to allow for easy access to the filters for cleaning and I already have 1 80mm fan. I just need 1 more like the one in my link. I never checked Amazon.com since I'm in Canada. I'll take a look. It'll be faster then China and the duty won't be very much on a filter, if anything. Thanks.
I've been running a scan on my 8TB WD My Book and it has already been over 24h. It is on something like, free cluster 4bajillion out of 9.5bajillion and it has said "ETA 15h" since last night so I don't have my hopes up of this finishing any time soon. I also didn't know there was now a /perf option to speed up the scan.
Unfortunately Windows did a small update that broke my sound and I need to do a reboot and either re-install the drivers or roll back Windows but doing either will stop the scan. Can I force chkdsk to restart the scan on stage 5 at a certain cluster? It is 40% through the free space scan so I'd rather not lose all that time, not including the time checking the clusters that had files.
BTW I'm doing this because a fold full of 7zip files had a bunch of errors on the My Book but my backup on my HDD had 0 errors.
As another option, should I run a scan using WD software? I'm just making an assumption that they have such software available.
You also might want to consider that DDR5 will hit the market by 2020, but not likely much before that. Right now companies are in the process of designing motherboards for the new ram. If you can hold out, you could get a MUCH faster computer although the price of DDR5 when it first comes out will probably be stupid high. Also you may want to wait a few months after the first boards hit the market. Version 1 of the first boards that hit the market for a new tech often have bugs or limitations that may or may not be fixable with a BIOS update. The other option for waiting is that DDR 4 will probably drop quite a bit once DDR5 comes out.
I generally like to let the early adopters test out the products for bugs for me.
Maybe. Depends on whats availible in 2020, 2019 if we're lucky. My current machine is only 3 1/2 years old. I think I got it either just before DDR4 came out or it had come out recently and the prices for stock speed ram was stupid compared to the then cheap DDR3. I actually intended this to be a stopgap upgrade before a real upgrade around now but with DDR5 only 2 years away and me not having any issue playing anything I don't see a reason not to wait.
