    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

    Microsoft Edge won't open, windows media player opens but will not play a file, get this message; Windows media player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct I think that...

    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...

    5930k died, it seems.

    @Knoxx29 yup I just realized this by actually clearing the cmos and now i'm back in business, thanks for advise. All ram reinstalled but only 12 of 16g showing. Had this before, swapping sticks around and reseating them will sometimes work, sometimes not. The last time I had this problem I set...

    5930k died, it seems.

    @CAPSLOCKSTUCK finding another board is going to be difficult but I will try. @Melvis OK tried all 4 sticks in the recomended slot for single stick set up, no change. Tried a stick in a second slot also no change. Hitting the straight to bios button loads default settings to ensure you can get...

    X99 random ram slot drop

    @Live OR Die it ended up being the Svid. I had changed sticks around lots of times with no joy. I have just loaded the 3202 BIOS, I was always using the 1.25 strap but now I can use the 100 strap for 3000mhz. And my Asus boot logo looks cleaner!

    @basco Overclocked CPU. 125 strap, no OC on ram just xmp. 1902 BIOS, I have not updated to the Broadwell BIOS but I will now that you say they have fixed the picky ram timings issue.

    X99 random ram slot drop

    Thanks Dave. Had cleaned but not with eraser. I found a thread on Toms hardware from earlier this year, must have been 15 people with the same problem, looked like most of them had Asus x99 boards, no answers in this thread though. But I have just rebooted and turned on Dram SVID and all my...

    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...
