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...

    X99 random ram slot drop

    Often I turn my PC on and notice there is only 12gig of ram showing in windows. All 4 sticks are being seen by AIDA64 and CPUZ. I check BIOS to see which stick is missing and it is usually C. Sometimes taking it out and putting it back in again works but not always, and sometimes the problems...

    System agent too high?

    Pc freezes or get blue screen often when playing BF4 with youtube running in background (I like to listen to Sargon, Amazing atheist or what ever in the background). I did have a long period of time when with no problems but then I tried a few different OC's and I'm not sure exactly what my old...

    AMD-The Master Plan

    I was not going to post this because it is purely speculation (it will be argued) and guess work and because of the hate it could stir up. But, in the end I though, it is really fun to watch and absolutely hats off to the guy (AdoredTV) for the time and effort put in to making these video's...

    NVME 951 vs 950 pro dual boot

    I would like to have two operating systems on my machine, one on a ssd and one on a NVME drive. But I have just read a customer review from a guy who said he had a little bit of trouble doing this with the Samsung 951 nvme. I think he said he was on x99. Has anyone here heard of this? I want...

    Fizzing noise from pump/res

    What could be the cause of a fizzing noise coming from my pump/bay res when it gets warm, not hot? The system is free of air except for the res which has a layer of foam/bubbles on top. The coolant in the loop is a dark red as it should be but the layer of foam on top of the res is pink. It...

    ODIN EVOLTION robotic computer case

    I recently sold my G1 Sniper 5, i7 4790k and Avexir Core series memory on ebay. As I was very unhappy to see the Sniper go, because it was a great board and rig. My new Rampage V 5930k and 3000mhz memory somehow doesn't fill the void of my old gaming rig:( I spoke to the buyer a little, he told...

    But people say Linux is awesome

    I have a Acer Aspire1, tiny little laptop thing, that a friend has asked me to update for her. She wants FireFox updating. I have downloaded the update but can not figure out how to, well, do anything with it. I have seen tutorials on youtube that I have no hope of understanding. They all seems...

    Asus or Gigabyte X99

    I would have just gone for the G1 gaming because I liked their z87 and z97 so much. I'm going to be very sad to sell the z97 G1, but it will fetch a bit more money than the z87 G1 sniper 5. The "special" socket from Asus is the deciding factor though, I don't think I will be able to sleep at...

    8.1 black screen not so straight forward

    Updated to windows 8.1 from 8 and got the black screen. I can open task manager and run things from there, such as uninstall and reinstall AMD drivers. But the AMD driver 14.4 (also tried 14.6) gets stuck half way through install and wont complete. I have also tried using the onboard graphics...

    Only 1080p available under 27"

    With tablets and some laptops having higher than 1080p resolutions why is it that PC monitors under 27" only get a maximum of 1080p? Or are they available and I've just not seen them? 24" 2560, 1440 would be ideal. My only guess is demand. 27" is probably the most popular gaming monitor and...

    Devils Canyon

    I'm confused about Devils Canyon! What I thought I knew, Devils Canyon is a part of the Haswell refresh, basically what a Sandy Bridge 2700k was to 2600k. It would be on sale in the next 4 weeks or so. I could pop one in to my Z87 board with a Bios update, forgoing some of the new tech like...

    Anybody had any experience with Avexir Core Extreme

    Thinking about buying this Avexir Core Extreme Green Series 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-22800C12 2933MHz. There is almost no chance of me getting it to run at 2933mhz with my 4770K and Sniper 5 MB. Firstly because I know almost nothing about over clocking ram and secondly because I've read in Haswel...

    Any G1 Sniper 5/m5 owners?

    Any one on this forum got a Sniper 5 board? How are you getting on with it? Impressed with it or regret buying it? How's your OC? What bios do you prefer? How are you finding the on board audio? Personally I'm happy with mine. I know some people on another forum had a few complaints...

    Secure Erase question.

    I should have used Secure Erase before I sent my Asus board back but I didn't think about it at the time. I was wondering if using Drive Wipe in CCCleaner would achieve the same results as Secure Erase. Asus say that Secure Erase helps bring back some of the performance that can be lost over...
