    Did you remove the CPU to replace the thermal paste?

    If so, I hope that you didn't damage any of the contacts in the LGA (land grid array). The memory controller is typically integrated with the...

    I have a couple of UHD (3840X2160) monitors, one to each desktop PC. Both are connected via DisplayPort, at 60 Hz. Both also support HDR. Works fine.

    I don't have an HP Z38c monitor, though.

    If you're limited to 30Hz on HDMI, that means that the HDMI version is 1.4. It takes HDMI 2.0 or later to support 3840X2160; I suppose the same would be true for 3840X1600. DisplayPort 1.2 is...

    Can you format a drive larger than 32GB as FAT32 from the command line? It doesn't work from within Windows.
