I don't understand what point they're making either.

All you need to be is "professional". That is, before you edit a file, copy it (backup).

I notice from your photos that you are relying on USB power only so far. You have no direct PSU plugged into the Arduino.

So I guess that 4-wire is 12V supply and 3 red,green, blue wires to ground for each colour.

Hmmm.......That means configuring a separate Arduino pin for each color, I guess.

FWIW, the WS2812b LED strip 3 connections are:

5V line to 5V on Arduino
GND line to GND on Arduino
Signal line (LED control) to configured output pin on Arduino via a 100 Ohm resistor.

You can do some pretty rinky dink seasonal (Christmas) stuff with an Arduino and strips of LEDs like WS2812b (Google that).

You just need to connect a pin of the strip to 5V, another to GND, and a...

Are you trying to track total system memory usage? If so, why?

Let the kernel memory manager do its job. Most people would say, unused memory is wasted memory.

Also, I suppose that the new mobo could have a different BIOS to the old one and now has an option to switch off the optical device.

Are the BIOS versions of the old and new mobo's the same?
