    Nordvpn locks up PC


    I had been using Nordvpn for a while and it was either locking up my PC or really slowing it down. I know most VPN's will slow down the internet connections but it had got unbearable. I just had to uninstall Nordvpn and I am no longer locking up and speed of the internet is remarkably faster. Any ideas to use a vpn and not have these issues?"

    :)

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??

    1.1 - Ideally put optical in SATA 0, and SSD in SATA 1, this will cause the optical drive to be the default 1st boot option. You can change it manually if not, but I like it this way
    2.infinity - yes, that's fine. if it's above 70 +/- 5 degrees, then it may just need a repaste/remount

  4. Nordvpn locks up PC

    NordVPN in Windows 10 reduces FIOS sped from 900Mbps to 90Mbps

    I am using NordVPN & as soon as I connect using VPN, the FIOS speed drops from 900Mbps to 90Mbps or less. The NordVPN tech support has tweaked several settings -- no IPv6, WINS settings, etc. (see below). Nothing helps. Any ideas that will solve this problem?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Double click on "Limit reservable bandwidth" -> click on "Enabled" and set the value of "Bandwidth limit(%):" to 0%
    • Navigate to the WINS tab and select to disable the NetBIOS over TCP/IP.
    • Try setting up IKEv2 connection method using this guide, unlike OpenVPN used in NordVPN application, IKEv2 can run multi threaded often providing better speed
