Hi Guys Matt from 123myit. In this video, I will show you how to create a Windows 11 bootable USB. Creating a Bootable Windows 11 USB will allow you to install Windows 11 on multiple computers. You will need a USB flash drive that is at least 8GB in size and you will need a copy of Windows 11. To download a copy of Windows 11 you can check out the how to download Windows 11 video I did earlier and I will put a link in the top of the video now.

Download Windows 11 – Windows 11 bootable usb

Once you have followed my other video and downloaded the Windows 11 iso file. Plug in your USB drive to your computer and double click the Windows 11 iso file. We will be formatting the USB so make sure you backup any files on the USB as this process will wipe any files on the USB.

Open up Disk Management by right clicking the Start button or in the search field type “partitions” and click the top result. The Disk Management screen should pop up. Find you USB drive in this case I know my USB drive was around 60 GB in size so this 57 GB drive is the correct one. Just make sure you have the correct drive because this next step will delete data on the USB.

Deleting Partitions – Windows 11 bootable usb

Delete all partitions on your removable USB drive by right clicking on each and selecting “Delete Volume.

Cool, once you have done that right click again and create New Simple Volume. Click next and type 1000 in the Simple volume field. Click next and next again. Then set your file System to FAT32 and rename your Volume label as BootPart. Then click next and finish. IF done right the drive will pop up in Windows. Do the same steps again, but in the Volume label type DATAPART. Click next and then finish.

DATAPART

The DATAPART window will also popup just close it.

Double click on the Windows 11 ISO file and Copy all the files and folders, except the “sources” folder, from the Windows 11 ISO to the FAT32 BootPart partition on the USB drive.

To do this select all your files then hold down CTRL and click on the sources folder. This will exclude the folder from the copy. Once you have done that just drag the files across to the BOOTPART partition on the USB.

Once they are, all copied go ahead and create a new empty sources folder. Make sure it is the same name as the source folder you did not copy across.

Sources Folder

Next, go into the sources folder and find a file called boot.wim and copy to the new sources folder on the USB drive. Cool, now go to the Disk Part partition on the USB and copy the all the files from the Windows 11 ISO to the DISKPART partition.

Awesome, once the files have copied across you have finished creating a Windows 11 bootable USB. You can now use this USB to install Windows 11 on any computer. In my next video, I will show you how to use this USB to do a clean install of Windows 11.

Lenovo Legion 5 with Intel

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the Lenovo Legion 5 with Intel.

What is the Legion 5?

The Legion 5 has almost everything you need in mid-range gaming laptop. This includes a Intel i7 Hexa-Core CPU. NVIDIA GTX 1660 TI Graphics and 256GB SSD.  All for around the $1000 USD. Check for updated prices in the description below.

This 15-inch laptop is built with what Lenovo calls Phantom Black plastic. On the inside the plastic is rubberised which makes it comfortable to use. The build quality is good and there is not sharp corners or edges.

Dimensions – Lenovo Legion 5

Lenovo says the starting weight is 2.3 KGs or 5 pounds and mine was the same. When you add the brick and cables it was 3.2kgs or 7 Pounds. In term of size the its pretty average for a gaming laptop at this price point. So it not super thin but its not massive either.

The display is a 15.6 inch 1080p, however just be careful when you buy as my model didn’t include the 144 Hz display rather 60hz only display. Its not all bad as when I plug it into an external monitor I can get 144Hz, but its something to be aware of.

In the Legion Edge software you have the option of disabling Hybrid Mode which will give you a performance boost in games at the expense of battery life. Backlight bleed on my display was fine and I didn’t notice it at all.

Across the top you have a 720p camera with a privacy shutter. The camera itself is pretty blurry and you can see its slow to respond when I move my hand. My keyboard looks pretty cool and it came with a single zone of backlight, along with many other RGB colours over 4 zones.

Keyboard

Typing on the keyboard was fine. However I am use to a desktop keyboard and I found some of the keys in slightly different position to what I am use to. So it may take a bit to get use too.

The function and Q keys allow you to cycle through performance modes and the power button changes colour to reflect the performance mode you are in. A really cool feature.

Trackpad was fine sometimes I miss click and it does pick up fingerprint, but seems to clean ok. The lid is designed well and you can open it with one finger and it folds all the way back 180 degrees. The keyboard flex was great. I didn’t find my flex at all. There was more flex on the display, but it wasn’t annoyingly wobbly.

Lenovo Legion 5 Ports and Connectivity

On the left side you have an air vent along with a usb 3.1 gen one port and an audio jack.

On the right side you have a power light, novo button, USB 3.1 gen 1 port and another air vent.

The back you have a gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.1 display port, two usb 3.1 ports a HDMI, power connector and a Kensington lock.

On the bottom you have two big air vents which push hot air away from the CPU and GPU. And on both sides you have 2 two watts speakers. Lets test how good they are.

So they are a little bit tinny, definitely not as good as the M1 MacBooks review I did link in the description.

Benchmarks

Let test it out with Heaven benchmark and the laptop is in performance mode. While that’s running I will try and give you an idea of how loud the fans gets. Heaven benchmark result was FPS: 147 with a score of 3718. Min FPS was 39 and max was 296. If I put pubg in Ultra settings I was getting about 88 to 101 fps. Doing the same thing with Fortnight and putting it into Epic settings I was able to get around 100 fps it did drop to 45 but that was temporary.

In terms of heat the keyboard does seem to heat up quite allot, but not around the WASD keys which is nice design. This means that your hand should get to uncomfortable when gaming. Viewing Angles on the display were very good take a look.

So would I recommend the Legion 5. Yeah I would I think it’s a great laptop the only concern you might need to have is to make sure you get the right screen with 144hz refresh rate. It makes a big difference.

Clean GPU in 2021

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit. In this video, we will show you how to clean GPU in 2021. Ok Guys If you are like me and you have a Crypto GPU or a Gaming GPU and you have been using it a while and it needs a clean then follow me and I will show you how to fix it up.

In this video, we will clean the GPU as well as replace the heatsink thermal paste and the thermal pads.

Dirty GPU to Clean GPU

The model I have here is the Radeon RX 570 and I was using it on a mining rig and as you can see its really dirty and clogged up with dust and to the point where its just over heating all the time. And even some of the heat sink is starting to corrode.

Take the GPU apart

Let us get started. The first thing you will need to do is take apart the card. You can do that by finding the screws that attached the fans to your heatsink. Once you have found them, just go ahead to and remove them. If you have, a different model and you are unsure. My best advice is to take it slow and gently. Moreover, do not get frustrated with it, as you will wreck your card.

When you have the screws loose gently, try to remove the Fans. With my card I have 3 fan cables which I need to remove. Be very gentle with these cables. Make sure you pull them out by the plug and not by the cables. If you pull it out by the cables, there is a chance the cable can break.

Go slowly

Just do your best to kind of slow massage them out. This top one was in awkward position so I just leave it and try doing the bottom one. Try not to force things.

Finally, I get the bottom cable off and wow check out all that dust and the corrosion. To clean the dust off the heat sink, some people use a can of compressed air and blow It everywhere. I just use a vacuum with brush attachment. In addition, do the same cleaning on the fans.

Remove Heatsink

Next step is to remove the heat sink screws. Generally, they will be the four screws on the back of the card. Gently try to remove the heatsink. If it does not move, do not force it. Go back and check there are no more screws to remove.

Cool, there it goes I had two more screws to remove. Therefore, we are going to replace the Thermal pads and Thermal paste. As you can see, the Thermal Pads are pretty much gone on the memory. Gently remove the Thermal Paste. I very slowly just peal it off where I can.

The harder dry pieces gently remove with a screwdriver. Make sure you do not scratch the memory.

How to Clean GPU

You can use a damp cloth or an alcohol wipe to remove any leftover thermal pads and thermal paste.

Clean GPU

Ok time to apply the new Thermal Pads and Paste. There is different thicknesses of thermal pads that go on the memory. On this RX570, .05 thickness goes on the memory and 1.0 goes on the VRMs. However, the VRM Thermal pads seemed ok on this card so I am not going to replace those. I will show you what they are in a second. Also, If you want an Amazon link the Thermal paste and Pads I will leave a link in the description. Cut the thermal pads to size and remove the two bit of plastic either side. Then place it carefully on the memory. If you need to know what thickness, Thermal pads go on your GPU then Google your GPU along with Thermal pad size.

Adding Thermal Paste

Do the same clean for the heatsink and then apply the Thermal Paste. I just put a little bit of Thermal Paste on the GPU. It will spread out when the heatsink and GPU are pushed together.

Both sides of the heatsink have guiding screws, which allows me to place the heatsink on in the right spot.

You can see there is more Thermal pads on the heatsink. It is in good condition so I did not change it.

Once the heatsink is back on flip the card over and replace the screws. Next up replace the fan power cables and screw the fans back on to the GPU.

Awesome you have now cleaned the GPU and replaced the Thermal Pads and Paste. Time to put it back to good use.

Apple MacBook Pro M1

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the Apple MacBook Pro M1.

I have to say right of the bat, I am not a Mac fan. However, this MacBook Pro has me surprised and impressed.

Design of the MacBook Pro M1

On the outside, the design of the Apple MacBook Pro M1 has not changed from the previous model. However, the biggest change is on the inside of the Mac. It’s the M1 chip that is custom designed by Apple. Previously a Mac needed multiple chips to deliver its features. Now all those chips are in one Soc. Basically making it faster and more efficient.

The new chip allows the MacBook Pro to perform better and run longer on battery, than its Intel-based predecessors.

How much for the MacBook Pro M1?

Pricing for the MacBook Pro M1 starts around $1299 USD for the 256 GB SSD model and goes up to $2299 USD for the 2TB model. In addition, it comes in two difference colours Space Grey and Silver. After using the 256 GB model, I found the upgrade to 512 GB is probably worthwhile as I started having disk space issues after installing Fortnite game, which requires about 90 GB. I started to wish I had the extra space. So consider this when buying the MacBook Pro.

Fortnite taking up 90GB of hard disk space!

In the box, you will get Warranty and setup documentation. Along with Apple stickers. Also included is a 61 watt USB 4 power adapter. The MacBook draws 61 watts of power when charging. Moreover, you can expect to get around 20 hours of battery life. Which is just outstanding.

Display

Next, you will have the MacBook Pro itself. The MacBook Pro M1 comes with a 13.3-inch LED Backlit Retina Display with IPS technology. And it has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 with 500 nits of brightness. True Tone technology also adds a warmer more realistic colour to the display. In Terms of how heavy the MacBook Pro is its 3 pounds, which is slightly heavier than the MacBook Air on 2.8 pounds. In addition, regards to Dimensions its .61 inches high and 11.97 inches wide.

Connectivity Ports

On the left side, you have two Thunderbolt, USB 4 ports. I would have like to see three as one could be taken up with a power adapter. There is No Ethernet, so this model is WIFI only. The USB 4 doubles as a display port so if you have a USB 4 to HDMI adapter you can plug in an external display.

On the right side, you have a 3.5 Headphone Jack. Moreover, there is no SD card reader which I get it, you can buy an Apple Adapter if you need that. However, it does feel limited in terms of connectivity.

Audio

The MacBook Pro M1 has Stereo speakers with high dynamic range. They sit both side of the keyboard and are designed to point upwards towards your ears. The speakers have the best sound on any laptop I have heard so far. They are truly amazing. Take a listen. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Touch Bar

Above the keyboard, you have the Touch Bar. This allows you to control whatever apps is on the screen. So for example, I can fast forward or rewind the YouTube song. Alternatively, if I wanted to turn the volume up and down.

The Backlit Magic keyboard is a delight to type on and does not bend when pressing the keys. And there is very little flex on the keyboard too. Which is nice.

The Force Touch trackpad is nice and wide and I never find myself missing a click or having to click twice.

Always On?

Another nice feature is the MacBook Pro has this always on feature when you open the lid. Just like your iPhone it’s on and ready to go. Along the top, you will find an integrated 720p FaceTime HD camera with an indicator light. I would like to see a button to manually close the webcam. It is a nice to have feature for the security conscious.

The overall build is excellent quality but the display hinge does not fold all the way back 180 degrees, however other laptops go all the way to 180 degrees, so it does feels a bit awkward.

Fortnite

Now for the Amazing part, I was able to get FortNite to run really well giving up about 50 to 70 Frames per second on high settings. And when I dropped it back to low settings. I was getting 130 to 140 frames. So much better performance from the gaming side of things. Having said that FortNite did crash on my once. I am not sure if that was down the MacBook hardware being so new or a bug with the FortNite software itself. At any rate, a great result in terms of gaming performance.

Benchmarks

Cool, let us run the benchmarks quick and I will show you the fan noise. Starting the Cinebench software really works the MacBook Pro hard. You can hear the fan spinning its quite loud. To be fair though the room temperature was quite warm at 30o degrees. One thing to mention is the MacBook Pro does have a fan while the MacBook Air does not. So you won’t get any fan noise from the MacBook Air.

Heres the Cinebench multicore score which is 7795 points and if you look at the CPUs ranking its pretty good for a laptop.

Here is the Geekbench CPU score and the GPU score.

Let us run the GFXBench Metal tool. As you can see here the MacBook Pro M1 scored and average of 55.4 frames. So not outstanding but a good result.

Who should buy?

The MacBook Pro M1 is aimed for people who are doing allot of video editing or graphic design work. This laptop is amazing for that type of workload. Plus it’s very portable. For those that want to know if they should buy the MacBook Air or the MacBook Pro I would say that if you a student and just using learning some video editing or graphic design go the MacBook Air. IF you are a professional or semi-professional then go the MacBook Pro. However if you want to see the MacBook Air review and comparison then subscribe to my channel as I will have both of those videos coming up after this one.
