  1. I've got a simple question Paul. I've got a 2TB HDD that is primarily used for storage, games , etc.
    Is it possible to simply transfer this HDD to a new PC without formatting? My OS will be installed on an SSD which will be formatted.

  2. Every time windows 10 updates, it will reset your privacy settings to default. So if you dont want to share everything you type, and share your address book with microsoft, i recommend installing Malwarebytes Spybot anti-beacon. If you do install that, you can just hit scan and let the beacon run with default settings, or you can block everything manually with this program. You only need to do this once, it will still be active after windows 10 updates. OR you can check privacy settings every time windows10 updates, but that does only turn off some of the spyware functions.

  3. How to build a gaming PC in 2019, you buy used parts, maybe a 980 ti or a 1080, and a 4 or 6 generation unlocked i5, overclock the crap out of it, get some ddr3 2400 mhz because its cheap as fuck and pretty powerful for ddr3. get and a new ssd or 2 and put them in raid 0, get of course a new psu and voila, How to save almost half the money you would give by buying only new parts and having the same performance or even better. This is the best and cheapest way to buy a powerful computer, if you want to have something more powerful then go ddr4 and buy 9600k or 9700k, but be prepared to pay 3 times more than an used i5. Also ryzen sucks for 80% of the games on the market, you can get a cheaper used i5 and have the same performance as a 8 core ryzen.

  4. For the whole Windows-spying thing I stumbled across a simple program that can help you turn of most of it. It can do a lot, including probably messing up your windows install, but I found that if you just go for the recommended stuff it works fine and helps you get rid of a lot of data being taken without you knowing it…
    Here is the link (no I am not affiliated to them or anything, it's freeware and I found it useful enough to share…)

    By the way: great video again, Paul, thanks. Although I am not entirely new to these processes I always find it interesting to watch and maybe still learn some new tricks. Also congrats on the 1 million subs mark, you deserve that. For me personally you are a great middle ground between the more in-depth guys like GN, the usually very elaborate TechDeals and the more quirky Kyle (and others). To the point, serious enough but not too much, informative and still entertaining. Thanks for that!

  5. Just finished building my first gaming pc two days ago and you were a huge help. Thanks for all of the videos you’ve done helping new builders like myself. Feels good to be gaming again.
