  1. The "metallic sticker" is a soft metal thermal interface. Some Intel CPU heatsinks from around the turn of the century were "blessed" with this extremely inefficient "thermal solution": Itanium disassembly That crap needs to be completely removed and replaced with decent thermal paste, specially so when dealing with P4 Burnwood/Preshott furnaces.
  2. ^ From the pic I assume you're talking about a side panel duct to feed cold air to CPU fan. A side panel duct is a cool (pun intended) idea for a P4, but unless it is well aligned with the CPU fan it might be doing more harm than good. If it is way misaligned I'd remove the duct and just leave the hole in the side panel. ^ I'd remove that crap from the bottom of the CPU heatsink and replace it with just any decent thermal paste. Buena suerte.
  3. Allow me to resurrect this thread with proof of concept: I followed the Gigabyte Tool method and installed the OS swiftly and smoothly from a USB 3.0 flash drive. Windows 7 goes like a charm on this CPU and ASUS Prime X470-Pro mobo. Running Windows 7 on the recently launched Ryzen 3000 CPUs / X570 mobos requires more tinkering but is still doable: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6_MdxMUpRE https://www.overclock.net/forum/13-amd-general/1731246-guide-fixing-windows-7-usb-support-matisse-ryzen-3000-zen-2-x370-x470.html
  4. I switched from Firefox to Pale Moon many moons ago and never looked back.
  5. I can tell you that the ".NET Runtime Optimization Service" (mscorsvw.exe) will connect outbund if you don't whack the mole.
  6. Now we're talking: Intel Optane SSD 900P Review: 3D XPoint Unleashed
  7. It's Windows Defender (MsMpEng.exe). Ars - Massive vulnerability in Windows Defender leaves most Windows PCs vulnerable
  8. KB40914 - Fix for Microsoft Pop up - Unsupported hardware message Also of interest: https://github.com/zeffy/kb4012218-19
  9. Heh heh, guess that whenever I run Windows 7 on Ryzen that will make me a blockade runner ... ... I like how that sounds.
  10. Side to side comparison of Windows 7 vs The Abomination: Ryzen 7 1800X: Windows 7 vs. Windows 10 Gaming Performance No kidding.
  11. Ex-microsoftie explains the reason: Microsoft Drops Windows 7/8.1 Support for AMD Ryzen & Intel Kaby Lake CPU & Lies About It - BUSTED! *Language warning for those sensitive to it*
  12. Sorry, I forgot that they had ruined Magician, I'm on 4.95. Wouldn't touch 5.x (useless spyware, the sign of the times ). Even 4.x needs some kicking in the rear to behave: it loves phoning home, setting itself to autostart with Windows, and you can only truly close the bugger from the notification area. If it helps for peace of mind, I still keep some ~2010 vintage SSDs and they still run like champs (one of them in a retrocomp with 98/XP, so no TRIM). I would only worry about data retention if SSD was to remain unpowered for several months in a row (voltage drift and bit rot, specially if planar TLC NAND).
