They are transferrable. You have to phone up though most of the time, the tool is useless.

Yeah I've transferred it before, as like you say, the tool just doesn't work.

Tried the online chat and that just crapped out before giving me a live agent, tried asking for a call back and got an "oops something went wrong"

All activated.

Next problem, when coming out of sleep it hangs and needs a hard reset, then it is totally fine until the next time it sleeps, so that's annoying.

Also, I've ordered the new CPU fan, as the current led bonanza one is too noisy for me. I assume it'll be easy enough to fit, they come pre-thermal compounded these days, don't they?

Does it actually hang or is it just a black screen because it's not staring the graphics card up again? Because mine's doing that, same CPU and I think GPU as well. I've solved it by just telling it not to sleep.

It was hanging until I turned off fast start, now it freezes after about 30 seconds.

Happens on every PC I have. So no, you're certainly not alone. I have to disable it and have every thing turn off apart from the pc itself. It's very annoying.

New CPU fan installed, it's a lot quieter.

... now I can hear the case fan ticking away, so I'll order a new one of that next :D

I fiddled with some BIOS shit, and I seem to be sleeping ok. Turned on ultra fast start, turned on wake on alarm, turned on wake on keyboard and mouse, turned off wake on lan.

Yeah it's one of the settings in bios I'm sure, but all of my boards are MSI and thus totally over complicated. Most notably the X99 Godlike which is frankly fucking ridiculous.

I bought a nice cheap SSD so I'm ready to build the bedroom PC. Well, once I've put four bikes into my mother's loft.

It should be quite respectablly really. I already know it can run TOW very well at 1440p.

The CPU only clocks to a measly 2.2ghz once loaded up, so I actually see worse performance at 1080p than I do at 1440p. Mostly because the CPU simply can't keep up with the Vega 64 wanting to stretch its legs. up that to 1440p and the GPU gets a much harder time of things, giving it the ability to get a proper workout.

That's why I always buy these Xeons. They're cheap, perform very well in highly threaded apps yet use like, 0.8v and never get hot or particularly stressed. I've never had a bsod and they don't guzzle power.

Do want 3950x Ryzen, can't affords.
