    [SOLVED] Can you write/rewrite a CD-ROM?

    If I have a blank CD-ROM, and I wrote some information on it, can I rewrite information on it even though it is CD-ROM? What if I have a CD-ROM already pre-installed with information, can I write information to that?

    Question Different reading speeds depending on machine

    So I can't wrap this around my head, but I have a laptop that reads the HDD at around 60-70mb/s (used a boot usb to test) but when I did the same test on a desktop by plugging in the HDD from the laptop, the speed I was getting was 110-120mb/s. Could this be bottlenecked due to cpu?

    4690K or 6600K or 7600K

    If I buy a 6600K or 7600K its more expensive because I don't have DDR4 on hand while my current G3258 setup has 16 GB of DDR3 and would be about 100 dollars less. I'd need a new motherboard (I want to overclock,) new cpu cooler, new processor and/or new ram. Would the DDR4 setup or the DDR3...
