    Won't make it slower if it works. It worked for me. You can always switch it back on again. However, as a last resort, I noticed SSDs are the more or less the same price as HDDs at the moment, yes, not as big but......

    Something is breaking and I can't figure it out

    Do you use the the desktop updater? That would surely inform you of what's available. Are you sure the bios updates for the 3.0 series won't suit yours? I mean did they change the chip set or something? Well, you know, I just looked at the last available update for any of them it's 2012, so...

    am3+ 970 chipset?

    Isn't the 970 non-sli and only slow crossfire? (ie 1x16 + 1x4) Cheaper version of 990 (as mentioned). OC's OK but not too extreme.

    Sabertooth FX 990 R 2.0 and G.Skill DDR3-2400 (PC3-1920)

    RE: MemOK!, did you hold it down for a few seconds until it started flashing? ASUS website says this board only supports up to 1866 mhz.

    Need to know about Best Antivirus at present and Acronis true image

    OK, so in my experience, as a normal user most of the time real viruses have to be activated by the PC owner so the are sneaked in with a piece of (usually free) software and activated when you run the program, so don't use free software which usually has some kind of "wonder solution"...

    Need to know about Best Antivirus at present and Acronis true image

    I believe the first line of defence is avoid unscrupulous websites. Sometimes you can't help it so make sure you have AdBlockerPlus, ublock and "HTTPS everywhere" installed in your browser. I chose Malwarebytes for an extra protection solution to Windows Defender. https://www.malwarebytes.org/

    Weird sound when moving mouse

    Sometimes the proximity of the cabling inside the case causes audio interference. If they're too close to the G-card and so on. The solution "in the 90s" was to isolate the cables with tin foil. Obviously, one needs to pay attention if you want to do this as you don't want it to touch anything...

    CPU Voltage

    Did you install the Asus AI Suite? I recommend you do, then update your bios with the auto updater. You can also influence the CPU (and everything) voltage from this GUI in the EPU window.

    Do you mean windows cannot install driver? You mean the audio driver?

    Overheating Fx 8350 (Solved)

    Well that's why I said "officially" only up to 1866. I'm running an ASUS M5A97 and I had to switch to DOCP before it would go beyond 1600. The point is that the OP was having issues with throttling, ram incompatibility was just a suggestion.

    Overheating Fx 8350 (Solved)

    I was wondering how long it was gonna be before someone showed up and said that. So for the benefit of those watching: Allegedly, AMD only officially supports up to 1866, right off the bat. If you want to tinker about with timings and OC settings in the BIOS, you can use higher speed ram though...

    Yes, if you look very closely you'll see I already apologise for that so same goes too you right?

    Cooling for a FX8350 Black Edition.

    OK, so I just had a look at the size of your beloved Hyper 212 and seen that you're right. So I'm going to have a look in my old pc junk box and pull out the old Hyper and see why I thought a 120mm wouldn't fit. In the mean time seeing as it's Christmas, I apologise for annoying everyone about...

    Your not the only one who puts oversized fans on a cpu cooler, I don't.

    He said the 212 doesn't fit in his box. And CM Jetflo fans start at 120mm and don't fit on cpu cooler anyway.

    Cooling for a FX8350 Black Edition.

    He said he's lugging his pc about all over the place, maybe it's become unseated in which case it'll need reseating with fresh thermal paste. (After the old paste has been cleaned off). Maybe, the whole thing is full of dust and needs cleaning (starting with the cpu cooler and fan).

    Cooling for a FX8350 Black Edition.

    The fans on the cpu cooler are not strong enough to pull/push air in/out of the case, they only blow the air already in the case through the cpu cooler itself. You need a good fan on the front of the case and another one on the back pulling the hot air out of the case. If you can put two on the...

    Cooling for a FX8350 Black Edition.

    It's correct to say that a fan is better than no fan at all. I have all my fans and the H80 unit controlled via fan controller mounted in the front bay: https://geizhals.at/scythe-kaze-master-ii-schwarz-km05-bk-a724538.html?hloc=at Something like this Scythe cooler might be what you need if your...

    Cooling for a FX8350 Black Edition.

    Yes, there is a lot of noise about putting on better fans, usually case fans like Arctic F12s or "be quiet" Shadow/silent wings which will definitely make a difference, I think we've made our positions clear on changing cooler fans. The stock cooler for the AMD FX range was a real strange one...

    Cooling for a FX8350 Black Edition.

    So Nefas, do whatever you want, different people have different experiences. You still need to max the airflow otherwise you're just blowing hot air around inside the case.

    Cooling for a FX8350 Black Edition.

    He's talking about adding an extra fan to after-market cooler and changing out the fan that comes with it. No point, what so ever. The extra one delivers as much as is necessary. I've done it myself. That's my experience not my imagination.
