    Bent pins cause excessive heat?

    My desktop PC consists of Intel's i7-8700 non-K, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and Asus Prime Z370-A. It runs Windows 10 Pro. The CPU used to be cooled by Corsair's H80i v2 liquid AIO but now it is cooled by Noctua's NH-U12S. Both coolers keep the CPU cool when they're active and idling in Windows gives...

The problem is that in Windows 7 the HDD is very slow. Since I happen to have a working XP installation on this computer as well (dual boot), I...

    After 31 Years, Why Does Microsoft Windows still _______?

    Games are suddenly slower after some time after boot up?

    When I boot up to Windows 10 and start gaming immediately, performance is as expected (480FPS in osu! for reference). But after some time, FPS drops and stays to 200 fps with medium CPU load! The CPU isn't trying to achieve maximum performance at all! System Specs: Intel i5 6200U 2.8 Ghz Turbo...
