  1. I guess they had pirates in mind when they said windows 10 would be the last windows you'd ever buy....
  2. I just want to say.... I think my water cooled rig would win the ugly contest if we had one... all of your rigs look better... mine doesn't even look planned, let alone good.
  3. well... despite the fact that I had decided not to do it... the fate gods spoke and said... your motherboard is going to take a dump....so it did... (details above)... like literally right after I had made my mind up not to buy it.... I bought the newer version of my board... a much improved one too I might add... kind of impressed actually... many features that I wouldn't really expect on a B550 board...like bios flashback. There is also a weird "performance enhancer" apparently designed by The Stilt... and it works... not sure if it's stable or not, but it'll hold an all core of
  4. well guys... my uber stable pc went stupid this morning... full story here funny bit though... is once it's past it's problem point, all is well and it acts normally... thinking my old b350 board my finally have had enough.
  5. well my question may have answered itself today... turned on the pc... boot started... turned off... press power button... turned on but with device digital signature error... powered off and unplugged.... turned on again and voila normal boot... ran some tests (sfc, stress, mem, etc) and no failures... hmmm maybe just a random glitch... turned off and back on... started booting, turned off... ok, this is annoying... tried to get into bios... no go... unplugged, turned on, into bios no issues... turned off fast boot and secure boot... booted into windows just fine.... then power off and power
  6. sooooo... I looked up my gpu on ebay.... and found this listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/114805862880?epid=4036079691&hash=item1abaf671e0:g:TigAAOSwUKBgnTTq guys... I'm almost afraid to own one of these now lol... this keeps going and it'll be worth more than my car.
  7. That's what I was thinking, but wanted to ask just in case I was missing something major... I've been known to not know everything lol... Honestly, the dread of retuning a system is nearly enough to keep me from upgrading even when needed, and right now, thanks to Ryzen my PC is actually exceeding my needs.
  8. I'm still feeling spoiled by Ryzen... had an FX before that... and now some programs seem to open before I can get my finger off the clicker... maybe predictive opening of apps OMG Ryzen's psychic
  9. That's what I was thinking.... it's tempting, but I don't see any real value in it for me... just the shiny new hardware temptation lol.. I can't see it doing anything to help performance or dependability wise.
  10. hey guys... I would like your opinions on this to help me not be stupid: Clicky
  11. -How I ended up in this situation: Ok so I'm one of those guys who bought a B350 early on in the Ryzen experience, and paired it with a R7 1700... then upgraded to a 2700x.... and now running a 3900x in it... I can get the latest greatest B550 version of my current board for 100$ right now (sale price, normally 160$) -What I'm asking: Should I do it? I'm leaning to NO, but am I missing something? -Pro's of the switch: NVME support of PCIE 4.0 drives for possible future upgrades as well as native support for 2 NVME drives (currently usi
