    PC Name


    Hi, After many comfortable years with W7 I reluctantly had to move on. I bought a new PC from a company who build them. It arrived yesterday and I went through the process of answering the W10 prompts as they came up. After getting through that and logging off, when I come back to log in it has the name Ann Benbow above where I put in my designated PW to get 'in'. I don't know anyone called Ann Benbow. I have, in the past bought motherboards, built my own PC and installed Windows OS on them and (from memory) that is the name I gave to the computer i.e. it looks like someone has installed W10 on this computer and called the PC Ann Benbow and I am suspecting that I have been sold a re-furb. Could there be any good/reasonable reason why my PC is called Ann Benbow?

    :)

    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??
