    Windows 10 64 bit home won't install (screen cap of error)

    Installation officially done. I'm typing this on the Windows install. Thanks for the help everyone.

    Windows 10 64 bit home won't install (screen cap of error)

    Thanks for this. Disabling CSM is what did it... ugh, it would have taken me forever ti figure that out.

    Windows 10 64 bit home won't install (screen cap of error)

    ...ok, dled Win 10, booted to USE with only that drive and the NVMe enabled, same issue.

    Windows 10 64 bit home won't install (screen cap of error)

    Physically uninstalling is no problem since I just had to pull one cable from a modular PSU. The problem now is that I don't have an 8 GB flash drive to download Windows onto as apparently NVMe needs a bootable USB to install from. I ordered one from Amazon

    Windows 10 64 bit home won't install (screen cap of error)

    Ugh, thanks for the link. The MB does allow for bootable NVMe so there's that, but unfortunately it's gong to be a headache for me to make/download a bootable USB drive... don't even think have one big enough here.

    Windows 10 64 bit home won't install (screen cap of error)

    It's a DVD, you're saying unplug the other HDDs?

    Windows 10 64 bit home won't install (screen cap of error)

    This is a fresh install on a 500GB Samsung 960 EVO NVMe drive. Even though I only took the 1 screen cap I tried the format selection, making partitions of various sizes (I even partitioned it right down the middle and tried installing on both) and using those to no avail. Please help

    ASRock X370 Taichi (AMD AM4)

    If anyone wants one Newegg FINALLY has these in stock again. I doubt they'll be there for long.

    NVIDIA to Support 4K Netflix on GTX 10 Series Cards

    The problem is bad codec/poor compression. When I can easily see dramatic improvement when looking at Youtube/Amazon 4K vs 1080p, and when a 1080p Blu Ray makes Netflix 4K look pedestrian then it's a problem. It shouldn't take HDR to bring it up to standard.

    NVIDIA to Support 4K Netflix on GTX 10 Series Cards

    Problem is that Netflix 4k is kinda trash. I have a 4K TV and cancelled 4K service because the improvement was marginal at best.

    ASRock X370 Taichi (AMD AM4)

    It'd take me a long time to build up enough trust in Biostar to ever entertain a purchase from that company.

    ASRock X370 Taichi (AMD AM4)

    It'd be nice if these could actually stay in stock. I can't find them anywhere for MSRP.

    So when is the estimated release of Vega? I'm seeing a lot of conflicting news

    AMD Ryzen Discussion Thread.

    So are there no plans to support ram speeds > 2933, or are MB manufacturers just not there yet?

    Ryzen Gaming Build Strategy

    I'm thinking the same, and looking at the massive improvements that have been made in the last weeks via simple updates I'm very optimistic. Also since I'm gonna be playing at 4K I wont be CPU bottlenecked for a while at which point I'm hoping to reap the benefits of multi-core. If not I'm still...

    AMD Ryzen Discussion Thread.

    But I still get the option to choose. If I decide the features are worth it then I buy a new mobo. If not I save about $200. It's win/win.

    AMD Ryzen Discussion Thread.

    It's with this in mind that, as someone who's building a 4K, I should go with Ryzen. I'm thinking that right now I can save a little over $100 and go with a Ryzen 6 core that will give me equivalent performance for a while, and perhaps, with any luck, will outright beat a 7700K if developers...

    AMD Announces the Ryzen 5 Series 6-core and 4-core Desktop Processors

    Got my eyes on the 1600X. If it boosts to 4.0 Fingers crossed that it can get to 4.2. I see this as a nice gaming alternative to the 7700 K. Not QUITE as fast, but it's got the extra two cores and is about 60% of the price. Yes please.

    AMD Ryzen 5 Series Lineup Leaked

    They will compete with the 7700K the same way R7 does with the 69xx. On price. The price to performance of Ryzen is simply not debatable at this point. If someone is going for the best of the best on performance that's a separate argument, but at these prices there is zero reason to buy Intel if...

    Ryzen Gaming Build Strategy

    I'm going to buy an NVMe drive with this one (even though I know it's overkill), but even that isn't really a necessity, so motherboard features tend not to be a big deal to me. Essentially I'd be saving the cost of a motherboard, which I guess isn't such a big deal.

    Ryzen Gaming Build Strategy

    The main point that I was getting at here was the processor upgrade strategy. If I go with a 7700K I'm pretty much stuck with that processor/motherboard combo, but with AMD I can swap out processors

    Cooler Master Announces the MasterWatt Maker 1200 MIJ Power Supply

    The price has got to be a typo. Putting aside questions of necessity it's about 2x as much as it should be.

    Ryzen Gaming Build Strategy

    I've been looking to build a new 4K gaming rig for months now, but have continued to remain patient. Currently the best option would be a 7700K + 1080Ti. I'm thinking, however, of a different route and would like some feedback. One thing that AMD is sticking to a socket. Whereas Intel changes...
