    ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme X399 Motherboard Pictured Some More

    I was impressed with Ryzen but did not want to build a new rig with it (did not want to give any money to Intel though) so I put thoughts of upgrading out of my mind. Now, Threadripper makes me want to upgrade my rig. Why do AMD boards not have a digital debug LED?

    G.SKILL Announces Flare X Series and FORTIS Series DDR4 Memory for AMD Ryzen

    It would have been nice if this ram had been available at Ryzen launch, so we could have seen bench scores with decent ram speeds. Ryzen would have surely looked even more impressive with validated and tuned memory from day dot.

    NVIDIA Announces the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Card at $699

    It does not matter how Vaga performs compared to Nvidia cards. I just want a card that does what I want it to do. I can not wait to replace my 980ti.

    NVIDIA Announces the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Card at $699

    I would have been excited about this card had I not bought a 980ti classified on release. The card has put me off Nvidia. Having to lower game settings 3 or 4 times now since I bought it. Fallout 4 was fantastic at 4k to start with, admittedly I could not play at max settings to start with but...

    Removed HDD now taskbar/windows problems

    I did a sfc /scannow but it came back with "no problems". I get the feeling that I won't be able to do a OS refresh but I will give it a try. might I be able to save the photos by hooking the drive up to my pc again?

    Removed HDD now taskbar/windows problems

    I removed a HDD from a laptop to scan it for virus and HDD errors from my more powerful pc. Put the drive back in the laptop and now I can not access start, cortana or notifications (windows 10) in fact very little works. The laptop required a password and I thought I had turned it off before...

    5930k died, it seems.

    I know what dimm slot it is right now, but sometimes it is another, mostly it is slot A2. If I go from BIOS to OS I will be aware of which slot it is. I'm going to buy another kit, Corsair or Ripjaws. DDR4 is cheap right now and I have never been happy with this kit. Hopefully I can get by with...
