Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus question

Q: Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus question

I am putting together a new build with a hyper 212 plus and some corsair vengeance memory that goes right beside it. The problem is that the hyper 212 extends slightly into the 1st slot of memory. The vengeance memory is way too high with the heatsink on it. What can I do? Can I put the fan on the cooler to pull instead of push or will I lose some cooling? Do I need to get different memory? Can I take of the heatsink on the first stick? Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus question

Looking at that memory, it looks like there's a little tab/hole/thing to pry the heatsink off. Don't force it, because you might cause damage. But if you can get it off gently, the RAM should operate fine without it.

I'm not sure about the difference between push/pull cooling, but I think you might lose some efficiency if you set your fan to pull from the other side. I've seen several dual-fan coolers that have a fan on both sides, but every single-fan cooler I've seen has a fan pushing air, not pulling, There's probably a reason for that.

You could also try turning your cooler so it faces another way. This might mean disrupting the airflow though.

But yeah, don't force the heatsink off. If it doesn't behave, you might want to pick different memory, or a different cooler.

The 1 fan which is mounted is intake.

If i were to install another fan to make it dual fan, would both be intake or would one be exhaust and intake etc. As in going with the push pull flow?????

I have the 212+ as well. You'd want one push and 1 pull. Also, make sure the 2nd fan moves the same amount of air as the 1st, or you'll create a bottleneck of sorts. But with 2 fans that have equal airflow, you will notice a drop in temps. But there will be more noise, unless you change both fans to a quiet fan like Noctua's. A Guy

I was very disappointed to find my Cooler Master Hyper 48 CPU fan wouldn't work on an AM2 motherboard. After much searching I found an adaptor. $2.99 for the bracket and $8.54 to ship.

Hello, i have AMD phenom II x4 955 BE processor. i have replaced the stock fan because of the huge noise and the bad cooling with a new Cooler Master hyper 212 plus(Hyper 212 Plus - Cooler Master - Leading Provider of Computer Case | Cooler | Power Supply) i noticed that it is a bit better for cooling but the noise is too high.
it is allowed to have 2 fans on both sides, i have only one fan now i bought it that way so if i buy the other fan and plug it in the other side will increase the cooling and lower the noise or make it worse noise?!
thank you

A:Cooler Master hyper 212 plus?

Two identical fans is going to make more noise than 1 fan.

You should use a single fan that blows air THROUGH the heatsink fins and TOWARD the rear of the case, where you probably have an exhaust fan.

That heatsink is generally well-regarded for cooling purposes, but I'm not sure about how quiet it is.

You may have just had bad luck and got a noisy example of the fan.

Or that particular fan may just be noisier than you like.

My advice: replace with another fan KNOWN to be quiet: low to medium speed Nexus, Yate Loon, or Scythe, for example.

Make sure you have mounted the heatsink and fan to blow air as I described above.

Hello. I just ordered a new heatsink for my Core 2 Quad Q9550 at stock clocks (2.83GHz), and I was wondering if anybody else had any experience with this heatsink. Any advice would be useful because this will be my first aftermarket heatsink. If you could provide installation tips or stuff like that, that'd be good too. Thanks.

A:Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

Two things. First, understand that if your Intel CPU was a retail version that came with an Intel supplied heatsink fan (HSF) assembly, then according Intel's CPU policy, using a 3rd party cooler voids the warranty! Also note that damage attributed to overclocking is not covered under any CPU, motherboard, or cooler warranty either, regardless any overclocking features or software provided by motherboard makers. Certainly, this is not a concern for some enthusiasts. But it is a concern for many others, and everyone should be aware of it.Intel CPU Warranty Information (my bold added)Intel warrants the Product (defined as the boxed Intel? processor and the accompanying thermal solution)... ... if the Product is properly used and installed, for a period of three (3) years. This Limited Warranty does NOT cover:• damage to the Product due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, abnormal electrical, mechanical or environmental conditions, usage not in accordance with product instructions, misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing; OR
• any Product which has been modified or operated outside of Intel's publicly available specifications
Note that is NOT my opinion, I am just the messenger making sure you are aware of Intel's policy. For AMD readers, they have the same policies about overclocking and the use of 3rd party HSF assemblies on CPUs that come supplied with OEM HSF assemblies.

Second, the proper use of TIM is essential. Here's my canned text on that:

An often misunderstood and sometimes overlooked critical hardware component is thermal interface material or TIM. TIM is typically seen as a thermal pad on a CPU heatsink, or in paste form. It may also be called thermal grease, silicon grease, heat transfer compound, thermal paste, heat sink compound, goop, and probably more.

The 4 Most Common Heatsink Fan (HSF) Assembly Mounting Mistakes:Failure to use TIM
Used too much TIM
Reused old TIM
Did not clean mating surfaces thoroughly before applying TIM
The purpose of TIM is to ensure all the microscopic pits and valleys in the CPU die and heatsink mating surfaces are void of heat trapping air, maximizing surface to surface contact. Any excess is too much and gets in the way, and can actually be counterproductive to the heat transfer process.

Materials Needed: One clean plastic shaft Q-Tip (cotton swab), acetone or 91% isopropyl alcohol (note - most rubbing alcohol is 70% and leaves a film, 91% alcohol can be found at your local drug store), clean scissors, can of compressed air, and the TIM. I recommend one of the new generations of non-metallic TIMs such as Tuniq TX-2 or AC MX-2, or the venerable silver based TIM, Arctic Silver 5.

WARNING: Keep yourself grounded with the case to ensure there is no static buildup and discharge that might destroy any electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitive devices. It is important to realize that the "threshold for human awareness" for a static shock is higher than the tolerance of ESD sensitive devices. In other words, you can shock and destroy a CPU, RAM module, or other sensitive device without even knowing there was a static discharge! Use an anti-static wrist-strap or frequently touch bare metal on the case to maintain your body at the same potential as chassis (case) ground.

Preparation: Power off and unplug the computer from the wall. Cut off one cotton swap near the end. Bend the plastic shaft about 1/2 inch from the cut end to make a nice little hockey stick. This is the working end of your TIM application device. Clean the die and heat sink mating surfaces with a soft, lint free cloth dampened (not dripping wet) with acetone or 91% alcohol. Do not let any fluids run down the sides of the CPU die. Clean skin oils from the working end of your applicator with the alcohol dampened cloth. Blast the surfaces with a quick blast of compressed air to ensure the surfaces ar... Read more

I have used the stock cooler on my Master vs. Hyper HSF stock Intel 48 Cooler j for some time now I ve had good results but the noise level is bit too much Now I have this very large and heavy copper HSF with a mm fan A Cooler Master Hyper I ran a test with my stock HSF I booted up at Intel stock HSF vs. Cooler Master Hyper 48 my GHz Vcore x and ran idle for awhile then at full load Stock Intel HSF I then Installed the Cooler Master I had to remove the motherboard to install a back plate than the HSF is screwed down too Then I ran the same test It comes with a replacement bracket for both socket and Athlon It will clamp down to the regular bracket but as Intel stock HSF vs. Cooler Master Hyper 48 heavy as it is the back plate is required Cooler Master Hyper After week The noise levels are lower with the Hyper but still much louder than a Arctic Cooling Freezer The Cooler Master s overall performance is a disappointment so far I hope that once the heat sink compound cures performance will increase over the Intel unit I may also replace the Intel stock HSF vs. Cooler Master Hyper 48 mm fan with a more quiet one The Hyper gets ZERO green bouncies nbsp

I have an old cabinet, but I'm thinking of buying Cooler Master Gladiator 600 (it's the only budget option available in my hometown). What I've been thinking is will Corsair VX450W psu's cords be long enough to re-route the wires (The case has system for bottom mounted psu)?

A:Cooler Master Gladiator 600+PSU question

Think you will find that this is one of those that you're just going to have to try it and see. You could measure how long the 24 pin and 4 pin motherboard cables are, and then using the new cases dimensions measure from the sockets to roughly where the power supply will be mounted. If they aren't long enough you will need one of each of these (if you can find them locally), - Athena Power 12" P4-12V (4Pin) connector Extension Cable. Model Cable-AD09 - Cables - Athena Power 12" EPS (24Pin) connector Extension Cable Model Cable-AD08 - Cables

so that they will reach.

Edit: Just found this,

300W to 450W: 20 Power Supplies on the Test Bench - AnandTech :: Your Source for Hardware Analysis and News

which shows that the cables on your PSU are ~24" long, which should make them more than long enough. About the only thing I can see is you may want one of those 4 pin extensions, as due to the location of the block on the motherboard without one you may find you have to snake it under the video card as I don't think it will be long enough on its own to run it up the front (and out of the way).

A:Problem with Cooler Master chipset cooler RUNNING HOT!

chipsets have a higher heat tolerence than CPUs, 40c is a safe operating temp. also, temp sensors are not accurate, so you can't really go by the reading from it anyways. it's not unusual for software based sensor to be as much as 10c off the actual temp.

the cooler you bought should work fine. did you thoroughly clean the chipset and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and then apply new thermal compound before mounting the cooler?

On average, a silver compound will hang a few degree's C lower than a compound that is composed of grease. Reason, metal conducts heat better, but its not as conductive, as true metal. In fact, both greases and silver compounds and such conduct alike. But if your temps are a huge issue, get a silver compound, they are formulated to align during bonding, which helps create a much easier transfer of heat. its only a dollar or so more, and its all I use, I'd go for it.

The compound is applied to match the raised area on the CPU called the die. All you need is an extremely thin layer to make contact with the die.

That is a decent psu, but is on the lower end of their models. Looking at your specs you have a good build. I would get a better psu, and keep it as a back up for testing. Corsair and Seasonic are good choices, others will add more. The psu is one component you do not want to cut corners on. I would go for a modular one.

You would ordinarily use the I/O USB ports that show at the back of the case which are directly connected to the motherboard. So when you choose your motherboard, pay attention to number and type of USB ports the motherboard provides and decide accordingly. If you need more, you can buy a USB hub or install a PCI or PCI-E add on card for more USB ports.

A:Cooler Master 500 PSU amperage?

The 6A rating you see as part of the technical specs is for the connectors, not for the output power of the UPS IMO.

Insufficient power will not damage your PSU as much as it will damage your UPS via an overload. This is probably why it is not working anymore and the "Overload" light is flashing. Your PSU will try to pull as much power as it needs to convert to DC, and nothing more. Have you recently upgraded your system with a more powerful GPU, CPU or more HDDs? That may be the reason for the overload.

Still waiting the last two items to finish that one up.

As for a 450w model it will mainly depend on how much hardware and what hardwares it will be used for. For a minimum stock case it will meet the minimum requirements. But for any ocing or placing heavy demands on it you may want to consider a larger model supply with more then one rail as well as more connections.

The stock fans should be enough, but I have a feeling you are going to do a massive over-clock, so every piece of hardware will be affected. The rule is:
front fans blowing in
top fan blowing out
side fan blowing in

I've recently acquired a Cooler Master Seidon 120v and am currently trying to install it on my ASRock Fatal1ty z97 Gaming motherboard. I've connected the pump to the first chassis fan and the radiator to the first CPU fan slot. Upon booting to the BIOS my CPU temperature keeps rising, I've seen it go as far as 80 degrees, at which point I just turn the PC off. I set all fans to full speed. Thermal paste is applied well. Either the pump doesn't work or I just can't hear it. Any suggestions?

A:Cooler Master 431 w/o Side window Cooling

That is a good cooler, but I personally like at your budget range the Thermaltake CLP0575 Frio

But either will do you fine for 4.0ghz on a 3570k

As for more airflow, adding more fans can help, but make sure to just focus on having a good overall flow through the case which will be a huge benefit in general.

I'm curious if there are any places around the internet where I can buy some Cooler Master SATA power cables? I went to Cooler Master's site, and although it's $4 if I remember correctly, it was about $20 in total to bring it here to Calgary. Kind of expensive, I was looking for something cheaper.

I guess when I had my system built, the store forgot to give me the power supply box. They told me it didn't come with a box, which most power supplies do come in one with all the accessories.

A:Cooler Master SATA power cables

From looking at your system specs it says that you have a Corsair PSU and a Cooler Master Case. So, I'm going to assume you are talking about the accessory box for the case. I believe you can go to their web site and do an online chat. Just tell them you bought one of their cases that was missing the accessory box and ask them if they could send you one. You may get lucky. But, be aware that Cooler Master is not known for quick customer service.

I have a 750 watt Power supply.

I live in institutionalized living conditions, (kong term medical recovery), where the air here is very very dry in the winter.

Lately I have been having issues with my computer turning on.

I press the power button and it goes up and down, but no power starts up.

I've checked the plug, even unplugged it at both ends. No good.

Only after I start moving the case around, to get access to the insides, does it start up.
Any ideas what might be causing this condition? Thanks.

i purchased this cpu cooler and it came yesterday. i installed it on my new rig (witch is yet to be completed ...still waiting on video card and psu) and ran into a question about it.

it has a seperate fan speed control that i can either use in a 3.5" floppy drive bay or a pci bay in the rear.

my question is, do i have to use this control? or can i just let me mobo tell it how fast to spin the fan?

in the instructions, it says to disable the mobo function in bios while using the extra control that came with the cooler, but it doesnt say i have to use it or if it is optional.

any advice on this matter i would love.
thanks in advance.

The control knob is optional. You can plug the fan directly into your motherboard, and have it control the fan.

Hello and thank you for your time. I'm wondering if there is a way to force my host operating system to use a specific network card? Here is my story. I recently enabled Hyper-V on my Windows 8.1 desktop. When enabling Hyper-V it created a network switch. This switch is an external switch with access to my host's network card. I also created an internal switch for a different subnet. See the screenshot for a little more details
What I notice is that when I'm browsing to websites on my host OS, it pauses for maybe 10 seconds saying resolving host. The web page then loads as expected. This did not happen prior to Hyper-v. So I'm thinking that maybe traffic is being routed through the Hyper-V switches and back out? Is there a way to verify this, or maybe force the host to use a specific NIC card?

I have a question about hooking up a Vantec CCK-6040H Cpu Cooler. The heatsink and fan comes with a 3 to 4 pin optional connector. I have been told I should use this instead of mounting the 3 pin connector right to my motherboard. They continued to explain that because this has a high powered fan (6800 to 7200 rpm) it should not be directly connected to the 3 pin connector on my motherboard. Is this true and if so would I connect this 4 pin connector to 1 of the leads coming of my psu? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you,


A:Vantec CPU Cooler Question

Usually high powered fans such has this one gets connect to your PSU (Power Supply) and your 3 pin fan connector so your able to montior it's speed.

I suggest you do not install this fan for it creates way too much noise and has no fan speed control! I highly recomment a Thermaltake Volcano 9+ or higher. They have easy installation and can control the fan speed. They are made out of you copper based Vantec fan, but I'm sure you'll receive better result with an Thermaltake. I currently have a Thermaltake 11+ and it's very good! It cools down my CPU even at the highest clockings. It includes a fan speed control unit either for a CD-ROM slot or a PCI slot at the rear. It's fairly quite for it's power unless that is you boost it full speed. Then it's makes just has much noice has your Vantec. I suggest you do some shopping first!

It's not real hard, just read the instructions carefully. They won't be real descriptive. You Tube has a bunch of videos to show you how. They are good coolers. Get some quality thermal paste instead of what comes with it. This is a different socket, but the same process.

I upgraded my GPU recently and noticed that my CPU fan was making more noise than I remembered - sort of a droning noise nbsp I checked my CPU temps and discovered much CPU 8900 - XPS cooler upgrade cooler operation quieter and that at idle the CPU was hitting - C I decided to upgrade my cooling nbsp The XPS 8900 CPU cooler upgrade - much quieter and cooler operation main limitation besides the fact that Dell has a non-standard CPU backplate setup is the somewhat narrow case on the XPS doesn t allow installation of most of the inexpensive high-performance coolers because they are too tall XPS 8900 CPU cooler upgrade - much quieter and cooler operation by quot - quot nbsp Then I found the Cyrorig H which has three heat pipes a huge heatsink and mm fan all in a package that is quot only quot mm high - just short enough to fit in the case nbsp I installed it yesterday and it works GREAT nbsp Very happy with it initially at least I also swapped out the stock Sunon case fan for a Cooler Master Blade Master mm fan which is quieter but similar CFM specs Overall the computer is now quieter at load than it was at idle before nbsp And my CPU temps have dropped by degrees C nbsp Great upgrade nbsp I made a video on how I did it here and here are a couple of pics

Hi everyone!! Just wondering if it is possible on Digimax Master 1.0 to make color photos into black and white with a little color(to exaggerate something in the photo)?? If so, how do you do this?? I know in order to make your photo black and white you go to "Hue/Saturation" and put Saturation to -100, but how do I get the color in my photo to highlight an object in it?? Can you do this?? Thank you!

I currently have a 40 g drive with xp pro , I was going to add another 20g drive as a slave for backup and data storage. Im assuming all I need to do with the slave drive is have the bios recognize it and format it . I dont need an OS on the slave drive correct ? xp will detect that as an empty drive ?

A:master and slave question

yes that is correct
just make sure the jumpers are set on the harddrives correctly

I just recently bought a DVD/RW drive for my computer and it says if possible, make it the master drive....I'm swapping a cd writer out for this and my writer is the slave drive......does it make any difference if I keep these the same, or should I make the DVD-RW drive the master.......if so, would my solution be to move my cd-rom drive from the top slot to the bottom and put the new dvd-rw drive on top......this to eliminate the need of rearranging any of those ribbon cables.

Thanks, Mike

I have heard that every comptuer has something called a master file table. This is source of restore deletion programs power, this is where these restoreing programs bring back files that have been stored once delted. This i know. What i dont know and am wondering is is that "secure deletion programs" are a quack then, becuase they fail to clean your mft files, which makes guttman passes full of bolongy. I hope i got this concept wrong. Explain this to me and tell me if there is a way that this can be wiped, if not then just explain to me how this drive works????

I am in the process of adding an additional Sony CD-R/RW to my new HP Pavilion A1102n computer. I was told by the computer guy at the store that both CD-R/RW's jumper settings could be set as master. Will this cause any problems. Also will I have a problem putting a Sony product into an HP product. I have never done anything like this before and I am a little concerned that I will crash my computer.

Any help and other instructions would be very appreciated.

Hi all,

I have a laptop that is configured to connect to my network thru VPN.

Why is it that when it's logged on VPN, the only machine that appears in the browser list of other machines is the remote one(laptop). And when it's logged on local, I can see all the machines on the network.

I think it's a master browser thing. How can I make sure the servers always act as Master browsers and not individual machines.

Or should I look into remote access config?

~ My desktop crashes overnight ... sometimes. It attempts to reboot, but halts at 'Verifying DMI pool data'.
(No idea why it crashes - it isn't consistent - it doesn't crash during daily use, and most likely a power flicker issue.)

~ I reboot using MiniTool Partition Wizard boot disc, rebuild the MBRs, re-order the HD boot priority and it usually fires up on the restart. PITA but there is no data loss (so far) so it's just a chore not a debacle.

~ I have 3 HDDs; 2 appear as masters and the other as slave. (I haven't checked the jumper settings).

The 1st question is: should I have more than 1 MBR?

The 2nd question is: why does the system not boot (when the mobo is supposed to scan all 3 drives for the boot info)?

A:Master Boot Record question

From what I see, your motherboard has one IDE connector to which you can connect two IDE (PATA) drives. The one you boot from should be Master and the other one has to be a Slave. Most probably you haven't changed the jumper to Slave in the second IDE drive. Check.

( You haven't specified the model number of drives and to which connectors these are connected. In SATA drives there is no Master/Slave since each drive is connected to a singular port..)

( In all hard drives SATA or PATA the first sector is conventionally called the MBR Sector. It carries the boot code (in case of the HDD on which the OS is installed) and the partition table)

Alright, so recently my stock cooler for my CPU has been getting really annoying. It seems to get really loud during gaming, with my CPU temps averaging around 43c.

So I decided to grab a new CPU cooler. Ive had my eyes on the

But now after a little of reading up on the cooler, I'm a little concern about size and effectiveness. Here's my case if anyone knows if it will definitely fit. armor gaming case

Also,id like to know if there are any other good CPU coolers out their along the same price range, that performs better.

-Thanks In advance

I did a search and found just a little bit if info. Basically what I am doing is getting a much smaller case, new internal cables, and a new HD. I want to be sure everything is connected right as far as IDE channels. Here is what I have (or will have):

40GB Maxtor
120 GB Maxtor
32x CDRW

I want the 40GB to be by main drive, master 1, and my 120GB to be the secondary drive, master 2 (?).

Now my question is, what is the best way to arrange the slave drives and why? I have never really understood the whole master slave thing.

Is it OK to have a newish DVD drive as Primary Master, the CD combo drive [there when computer was set up] as Slave and the HD as Secondary Master?

I noticed this in Bios setup and just wondered....?

Also, how do you make the CD combo as Master and DVD drive as Slave or is there no point to changing the status quo?

It's just that the CD drive was originally Master and would appear before the DVD icon in My Computer, then I had to reinstall Windows and get a new HD and now the order of appearance in My Computer window has changed.

A:Solved: [B]It's a Master & Slave kinky Question....[/B]


As the saying goes "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". I've seen this more than once and haven't encountered any problems from the main drive being secondary master. I believe you will encounter problems if you change that though.

Just remember this though, you only learn through making mistakes

A:How To Install Emulator And Hyper V - Hyper V Won't Install Windows 10

Simple: you have Windows 10 Home edition, it has no Hyper-V. Hyper-V is only available in Pro, Education and Enterprise editions. There's no way you can run Windows Phone emulators because the only way to run them is Hyper-V, which you don't have because of your chosen edition.

You can use Windows 10 Home edition to connect to Hyper-V virtual machines on Pro, Education and Enterprise editions, therefore even the Home edition has parts of Hyper-V to offer this so called Virtual Machine Connection to another Hyper-V server.

In screenshot, green highlight shows the parts of Hyper-V you have in Home edition. They allow you to to connect to so called Hyper-V servers (Windows 10 Pro, Education, Enterprise) and use virtual machines like for instance Windows Phone emulators installed on them over the network.

The parts required for a computer to act as Hyper-V server for virtual machines is highlighted red. That's the parts your Home edition is missing.

Hey guys,

I've got a brand new core 2 duo stock cooler from my old PC, and it seems much better than the stock cooler I got on my i5: cooper base, twice as much heat sink and pretty much the same fan. I was wondering if it would work better on the i5 than the tiny little I think I got along with it. Place your opinions, I'll test it this afternoon and post the results.

Q: Hyper V

Yesterday I decided to see if Hyper V worked on my windows pro build Having never used it before i looked on the internet for it and eventually found out that it is included in windows and that I didnt need to download it Well I think I dont need to download it Anyway I found out I needed to go to the Windows Features section in the add remove programs to enable it I opened the Windows Features found the feature I wanted to enable screenshot attached I enable Hyper V Management Tools The progress indicator green progress bar said it was applying my changes then I thought that this is strange because it didnt ask me to restart - I remember from other times Ive used it I have always had to restart Ive never used it in windows but in other operating systems I V Hyper also thought that the option for Hyper V platform is probably the one that I needed so I enabled that one it would not let me click in the box next to hyper v platform I had to first open the option with the sign but I could only choose Hyper V Services and not Hyper V Hypervisor because it was greyed out I though that strange because it seemed like the Hyper V virtual machine was what I needed After I clicked the green bar returned and then I was asked to restart my pc I let it restart and went away from my laptop for a few minutes When I came back the laptop screen was black and there was a mouse pointer on it I waited a while and then when nothing happened for about minutes I pressed CTRL ALT DEL hoping that it would work all of a sudden the screen came alive no text in the centre with the spinning balls This lasted a few minutes and then the screen went black again I waited about minutes and then pressed CTRL ALT DEL again again the spinning dots and then blackness I pulled my laptop battery out and started the laptop with the power button It r took a few minutes saying something about enabling features during this time I decided that I was going to turn off the Hyper V options I had chosen When I had logged in I went to the windows features and unenabled Hyper V and then restarted The Hyper V computer started normally after enabling disabling I Hyper V assume features Tonight I switched on my laptop and got a BSOD caused by DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION - I looked it up on the internet and it seems that it is to do with fast start up the article I found said to disable fast start up but I left it enabled because I dont remember an issue with DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION ever happening before On a side note - Im on the slow ring for insider builds currently on when is a new build going to happen for us slow ring users Nick

I can't run this computer in Hyper-V because the Hyper-V platform is grayed out? This is a snip from the computer and it says I can run in VT-x so why is that?

The reason is simple: Hyper-V 3.0 requires SLAT - a feature, that only the newest processors supports (AMD from K10 onward, Intel iCore i5/i7). I've addressed it a few months ago in [1] (unfortunately in German). It's a penality user has to pay due of a design decision Microsoft made in the past.

Use Virtualbox, they implemented their virtualization engine in a different way, so VT-x is sufficient.

If you wish to create a virtual machine in the Hyper V platform, Yes.
