  1. It's actually not that bad.

    The base of the phone houses the battery, which is by far the heaviest part. The top portion was also made of magnesium, so it's very light yet strong.

    Where they went wrong was the mechanism. It got very loose over time. Their touch screens were also shit. It was, however,  a great way to get a bigger screen, keep the keyboard, and keep the device nice and compact.

     

    Blackberry's first touch screen phone was a complete and total failure. I hope they fired whoever thought resistive displays on a mobile device were a good idea.

     

    I'm pretty excited for this new phone. Hopefully it really does quite well. If it's priced low enough I may even consider replacing my Note 5 with it.

     

    oh my god you mean the ones where you had to press down really hard to do anything?

     

    I find it ironic that the iPhone 6s is re-implementing that pressure-sensitive technology, but in a way that actually makes sense.


  2. The idea is using 2 furyX which would need 2 PCI-e slots not 1.

     

    or can you split a PCI-e X16 into 2 PCI-e X8

     

    EDIT: I could use something like this, and fab a case around it. http://www.compsource.com/ttechnote.asp?part_no=RSCR2UT2E8R&vid=428&src=F

     

    or remove the pins out of the x16 slot and fab a extension board to create a m-dtx board.

     

    all possible, just really annoying to do unless nothing else is possible. 

     

    I have no knowledge of new m-dtx boards sry


  3. A good 750W would be okay. I'd go for 850W to allow more room for upgrades and overclocking though 

    A good quality 750W should be sufficient, but if you wanted more growing room for OCing than an 850W would be a great choice.

    I have an i5 2400


  4. Obviously your machine isn't fried, it's POSTing. I think it's best if you do a clean install, it seems like the current install is broken. Connect the drive to another computer, pull everything off and then do the following.

     

    Try changing your SSD from GPT to MBR by hitting SHIFT+F10 while in the Windows installer and typing the following:

     

    diskpart

    list disk

    select disk (whichever number represents your SSD)

    clean (will erase partitions and data)

    format fs=ntfs

    convert mbr

    exit

    exit

     

    And then you should be fine. If not, I'd suggest using Darik's Boot and Nuke on your drive to completely wipe it, then install Windows through the installer.

     

    That worked, and since I only store stuff on my HDD, I didn't lose anything except like Google Chrome and Steam

     

    Thanks


  5. @TheSLSAMG what about this, which I found in colonel_mortis's troubleshooting guide.

     

    If you can't boot into windows at all: 

    • Get and boot off your Windows installation disk
    • Enter your language and keyboard layout
    • Click "Repair my computer" (I think it's at the bottom of the window)
    • Open command prompt
    • type the following:

    • diskpart list disk
    • Find the disk which you believe to be corrupt based on the size.
    • Type:
      select disk <the disk number from step 6>exitchkdsk /F /R
    • You may have to restart the computer for it to run.

  6. 1. Yeah, that's if you have anything that you can't just replace.

    2. Correct, SHIFT and F10 will open Command prompt, where you would input all of the commands I listed in order.

     

    I will try this tomorrow, too late now. 

     

    You might want to follow the thread, but I'll also tag you on updates.

    cheers


  7. you shouldn't have issues like that from just migrating hardware, but sometimes windows is dumb. what was the cause listed on the BSOD?

     

    It wasnt a conventional BSOD

    But no, it didn't list anything. It just flashed for maybe 1/100th of a second (I had to record with slo-mo on my iphone to get that screenshot).

    1) I'm fine with losing any data on my disks, but did you say connect it to anther computer just to save the data?

    and

    2) doing SHIFT+F10 will open what? command-promt?


  9. NOTE: My computer was working fine until this.

     

    So my ROG Maximus IV Gene-Z mobtherboard came in the mail today, used (that shouldnt make a difference, as the seller said everything was working). I unplugged the cables from my computer, swapped the cpu, ram, gpu and cooler to the new motherboard, then putting it inside the case and wiring everything up.

     

    PROBLEM

    I go to boot my system, but I didn't have my front panel IO connected yet, so I pressed the "Start" button on the bottom of the board, starting the computer. After a few seconds the "No boot device detected, please insert boot device and restart" screen popped up. So I restart, going into BIOS. I changed my primary boot option to Windows Boot Manager (then the name of my SSD) and my secondary to just the name of my SSD. Is there a difference between just the SSD and Boot Manager??? Anyways, I saved the BIOS and restarted. This time, windows popped up and started to multicolor flag loading screen (windows 7). After it finished, it sat frozen at the flag animation, and then quickly flashed a blue screen...YES BLUE SCREEN... and restarted.

     

    I've tried loading my windows disk, clicking "Fix my Computer" and resetting my drives to a backup 4 days ago on the 7th, but it didn't do anything. Also, if I try to install a new version of windows, I cannot install on my SSD for some reason (it says it's a GPT partition and cannot be installed on that). So then I just insert my disk AGAIN and press "Fix my Computer", but this time it says that my WIndows is out of date (because I just fucking went back to a 4 day old backup, and I cant use "Fix my Computer" anymore...

     

    I do remember getting to a black and white screen that said: "Windows could not be launched because of a change in hardware or software"... no shit sherlock.

     

    Did I just fry my machine or am I missing something?

    I know this is a lot, you can ask questions.

     

    Thank you so so so much in advance,
