  1. Switching to new PC


    Hello! The CPU on my desktop computer died.

    *cue Amazing Grace*.


    I got a basic new PC and plan to move a majority of my high-end parts to it.


    My problem is the new PC has a 512GB SSD with Windows 10 Home on it, and my original PC had a 2016-era 1TB SSD with Windows 10 Pro. My main priority is ending up with a computer with both hard drives and Windows 10 Pro. If possible, I would also like for the OS to exist on the new hard drive for efficiency purposes.


    Any suggestions on how to accomplish this? Thanks in advance.

    :)

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.

    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.

  4. Switching to new PC

    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??
