thanks i give those a shot.
Its only the way its out of the box. You recommend an update for the drive or both the motherboard too. I will try that.
Every other drive is there. The m.2 one is not there.
Nope, just the CPU. Most CPU coolers come with Thermal paste.
Very clean cable management.

nah 1 stick is enough, if you have 2 they have to be in the right spots.
I wouldnt get a 1050 or so, the IG of the processor can do all the basic stuff and play light games also. Just run it as it is, if your not happy then get a cheap card to hold you out.
Check all components in properly and i would also check the if the RAM is in slots 1&3, 2&4. Any sound coming from your motherboard on startup?. So can you go into the BIOS?.
I was about to buy everything to upgrade and all this came out, so i had to wait a few days to come to the conclusion and so i went ahead with it. For us gamers and general home users if anything maybe a 1% performance loss but a huge security gain, which most likely the culprit of our systems being unstable causing crashes in the Kernel and memory dumps, mind you ive had in the past many yrs ago, kinda explains everything now. Either way everything will be back to normal and we will continue on gaming like we should.
RAM new or old is fine as long as its working and is not faulty or damaged both internally and externally. Ive used old RAM and sold a lot of my old RAM from up to 10yrs and ive never had a complaint from my buyers nor have i ever damage any RAM.
Nothing to be concerned about. Ive just ordered mine and on its way shipping. I was too a bit concerned, after a lot of research and everyone's feedback its nothing to be worried about, but if anything it will still be quite a lot more powerful then what you have now. As everything online gets blown out of proportion.
As Shakaron said above, Yes you can use the old drive but if its an OEM(came installed or bundled with a new PC) version of Windows you will need to purchase a new copy to install on the new drive and use the old drive as storage.
Obviously you get what you pay for, so if your in a certain price range its best to do a bit of research and asking the residents here on which features best suits your needs as some looks better, others have better apps bundled with it, some better cooling and OC capabilities. Most of the other board features are normally the same on each brand within its price bracket.
Heres my experience. I have used a display with 25ms response time and that was noticeable especially if your in competitive gaming. I run 2x 144hz displays on 2 PC's, 1 is a TN panel at 2ms and the other is an IPS at 4ms, cant tell the difference. Even under like 8ms you wont notice. I would just get an IPS screen in future.
I wouldnt add a 2nd fan if it already didnt come out with one already. If you were to get a fan, adding to the case would give you improved cooling overall to the entire system whether its another intake or exhaust.
I would go with the best display. Since i own the PG279Q and ive owned many other display that were TN panels and faster response times i could not tell the difference in those attributes. The Asus is a very good display with colors and high refresh rate backed up with Gsync, you cant go wrong.
Im upgrading my 1060 for sure.
but $10 bucks cheaper =p
Yes a 1060 TI with 7GB......
For 1080p 60hz either set ups are more then enough. For 144hz the 8400 will give you a better experience. On my 2nd rig im using an i3/1060 for 1080p 144hz and run on med-high on most games. Your even dipping into 1440p 60hz with the 8400/1060 6gb. Just depends on your settings and how demanding the games are. Making adjustments in the settings for quality and high FPS is all up to the user.
thanks for the info.
I will have to test it in person somewhere. Its worth a shot.
I need one of them, my wife would love it, instead of me banging and smashing the Corsair K70 Rapid fire at all the late hours. How silent are they, as i get pretty competitive and she says it not the KB but the way im pushing the buttons lol. Ouch 180 smackaroonies.
Do you have speakers hooked up, make sure that it works to eliminate whether or not its your motherboard or sound drivers installed(normally on the motherboard disc). The other thing i would check is the cables from the case that is attached to the front of the case (Power, Reset, LED, HDD) is connected correctly to the motherboard, in the right spots normally at the bottom right of motherboard. These are small 2pins and 1 pin connections double check them if you can.
I use dry anti static cloths to wipe it down, removing fans, also using compressed air cans to blow dust, make sure they are for electrical equipment.

thanks for input.
You want to double check the cables from the case to the motherboard they normally run from the front of the case to the bottom of the motherboard, with Power, Reset, HDD, LED etc. Since they are so small its easy to connect them wrong on the motherboard.
Nvidia's next card Volta's will be a long while. Your looking at close to a year. They will also come out very expensive and more then what the Pascals launched at. I would say build now, if it was 3-5months then wait.
I think you should be fine. CPU header for the Corsair, 3 case fan header with 2 splitter will give you 5 fans to operate, since they are joined to one header they both will be controlled together through the motherboard. So you would want to split like the front 2 together and maybe the back and 1 top if so. You wont need molex, since your using the Pwm cables.
Do you need it ... NO, do you want YES, does everyone want YES, it installs and loads games at least 4x faster then a standard HDD. Just think of loading into a game at 40secs, the SSD will do it in 10secs. Is it worth 220 most probably, i have 1 hdd for mass storage and 3 SSD drives for boot and all my games. While everyone has power windows in there car im sure you dont want to be left with a wind up.
Depending on your budget. Your system will allow you to play at 1080p 144hz pretty comfortably @ 27" for larger screen space but 24" for very competitive gameplay. Your also able to drive a 1440p 60hz @ 27" display decently too. So look at what you have to spend and the games you play, whether your competitive then go 1080p 144hz for higher refresh rate if not then go 1440p 60hz for better visual quality. Once you decide we can go from there.
Its a very weak CPU. Your best off to save money to do a major upgrade. CPU, RAM, Mobo and SSD with the other parts you already have to add into it would make the system a lot faster and massive performance gain.
Yes you are correct you will have 3 sata connections left. You will have to refer to the mobo manual for which sata connections are disabled. No other parts will use it. You can add 3 more sata drives or 1 m.2 and 1 sata drive in future.
Oh thats standard. When you use an M.2 slot 2 sata ports are disabled. You have 2 drives which will only populate 2 of the Sata ports leaving your with 4. If your to add a M.2 SSD, 2 of the sata ports would be unable to be used, leaving you with 2 since your using 2 for your current drives.
Was looking at that list and seems like a lot of features i wont use. The Strix is rated above the Prime but only just and the price difference is about 10-20 more for the Strix. I be looking at best gaming performance in some slight OC in CPU RAM and GPU. Would be good to know anyone using these boards what they think.
I would try to re-seat the GPU and make sure its clipped in, then check that the sata power cable from the PSU is in the right slot on the PSU and that it is connected with the right cable thats made for the GPU which is normally labelled. Do you have a Display port connection? instead of the HDMI and DVI. Any chance of trying a different cables and try a different display or even TV if you can.
that budget would be too easy then.
referred to "- Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc)" and "None - Operating System required: I already have a copy"
1080p 144hz Gsync Display, a 1070 GPU, 6core Intel processor all peripherals from PCCaseGear with StarTrack delivery just around the corner to you, would take a day and wont cost a fortune.

And here iam using a Haswell for 1440p 165hz gaming and 1600mhz RAM and still getting decent performance. So i dont get why people upgrading for... Too much money.
12.4 input lag is pretty good for a tv as most sit around the 20s-30s and for general gaming is fine but for competitive.... forget it. Get the Ultrawide screens if you want, otherwise your stuck with the TVs
I agree with legonate416. Even Intel does not guarantee that it will boost as it states, since some do and some dont. But not to say its a bad thing. From most of the people using it seems to be a decent budget 6 core processor with some punch to its performance. I would definitely get this over the 8350k unless you wanted to OC.
Tried rolling back Nvidia drivers to no avail, then tried windows 10 prior to the 10/12/17 update and seems to be working like before.
Every game. They all run fine till i alt-tab to leave and if i go back in it hangs and sometimes freezes or just vanishes then i have to reload it.
