    Is it the motherboard that's broke?

    So, motherboard is clean, caps don't look like they're having a problem, ram sticks + hdd installed in another computer and it boots up just fine. Flash to beta F2c bios and after some BIOS settings I realized that I had to change the storage boot device to support UEFI boot (windows 10 thing...

    Is it the motherboard that's broke?

    https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z77-HD4-rev-10#ov I did not install the F2c BIOS since they are listed as beta (probably should try them at this point) I have tried using other RAM sticks I own and it didn't fix anything, I'm willing to rule out memory at this time. More or less I can...

    Is it the motherboard that's broke?

    I have tried running default BIOS settings but with IDE instead of AHCI, the computer doesn't boot off the SSD. I don't see why the battery would be an issue... I am resetting the CMOS by taking the battery out and putting it back in and the motherboard is keeping the BIOS settings and...

    Is it the motherboard that's broke?

    Let me walk you through what's going on. 1) Computer has trouble booting, so we just wouldn't shut it off as sometimes it'd fail to start and just reboot itself before windows loaded. 2) One day it decided to just say screw it and rebooted itself (like hardware reboot) and got stuck in an...

    Gaming laptop pitfalls to avoid

    One big thing to consider is that many laptops use cheap thermal paste and don't have the best cooling. You can often improve performance with replacing the thermal paste and using a laptop cooler. As for used laptops/gaming laptops, I'm not sure if he's on HWC anymore, but Soullessone21 is...

    buying advice to fix my h220 loop

    So talking to swiftech was a good idea. They told me that if I get a MCP50x pump I can actually remove the dead pump off the CPU block and install this one right on top.

    buying advice to fix my h220 loop

    Yeah, I should have thought to email swiftech, thanks. I really hope I can reuse the cpu block with built in pump from the H220 so I don't have to fork over more $$$$ for a CPU block. Already looking at over $100 bill just to get a new pump (not willing to buy a pump used either).

    buying advice to fix my h220 loop

    My H220 pump has been dead for almost a year now and I really need to get around to fixing it. I have 3/8 inner dia tubing and I'm wondering if I can just buy this pump and throw it in: https://www.dazmode.com/store/product/dazmode_storm_ddc_3_25_18w_pump/ Any idea if it'll work with the h220...

    Fort McMurray Forest Fires

    This really hits home for me as I was in Slave Lake during the fire of 2011. It's a very rough and hard time for the people of Ft. Mac right now. It's wonderful all the support and help from the surrounding areas, companies, etc. Hopefully the pets can be saved too and people had a chance to...

    EVGA 780 Classified - single slot water cooled

    EK water block on a "slightly" modified 780 to make it a single slot GPU (true single slot). Would there be much interest (i.e. hard to move) and what might it be worth. Thanks guys!
