  1. I was cleaning my computer yesterday and I accidentally dropped my CPU ~3 feet on a tile floor. I also bent some pins in the socket while cleaning around the socket. I fixed the pins so visibly they're okay looking. Upon start up, Windows would not boot and the Intel motherboard sent out three beeps. I understood this as a memory issues so I reseated everything and tried one stick. The one stick solution worked. Now I am on my computer with one of the RAM sticks not in the system. Once I booted the PC, my hard drive was not being detected by Windows. It would appear in BIOS, but not in Devices or Disk Management. I solved this by enabling hot plug capability and plugging in the hard drive after OS boot. Now, my computer is crashing games and just crashing in general. I have ran Windows Memory Diagnostic and it shows no issues. Here is my computer build. What on earth have I done to my PC?
  2. Alright. Thanks, man! I'll consider it.
  3. How much latency are we talking about? I usually play League of Legends and use Discord to talk to friends so it's not a huge deal.
  4. I recently picked up some Bose SoundLink around-ear wireless headphones II Black and they were great. I got them used for $170 and they have treated me well at the gym and home and commute and everywhere. I still use my regular headphones for PC, however. Now those are great but I am wondering if I can use my BT headphones for PC gaming. The top search result is actually this LTT forum post. There was a lot of skepticism as well as most results reference headphones specifically designed for PC gaming. If I were to pick up a BT dongle such as this one would I experience a lot of delay? Any better dongle recommendations? Thanks in advance.
  5. I will tear apart my PS3 tonight or tomorrow. Edit: nvm post didnt update for some reason.
  6. Alright. I'll weigh it all up. Thanks for all the good info!
  7. Could I step it down to a high end i5? I just not sure VR is too demanding on the CPU and i7s are $$$ besides what I am already spending on the Vive itself.
  8. Will the Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO work? I forgot to mention that's currently installed.
  9. I never thought about the IO. Maybe there's a front 5.25 bay VR insert. My front panel has no HDMI cables ATM.
  10. Anything on the cheaper side? Do you think I'd be fine with a 4790. I have no intentions of overclocking.
  11. I'm watching that on Ebay now, thanks! Any cooler recommendations?
  12. I'm upgrading my PC to be VR ready because I'm ready to drop some money on a Vive. I currently have 12GB of RAM, a i3-4130 and a GTX 1060 6GB by Zotac. I'm already picking up 4GB more of RAM. What processor should I upgrade to? I plan on using Ebay or Craigslist since the LGA1150 platform is older. Any suggestions? Any other generic VR Gaming tips that would help? Thanks!
  13. I reinstalled Windows and the problem is no more.
  14. Okay. That makes sense. I'll get to it.
  15. Okay. I'll try these but all of my other games work well. It's only PUBG and MW2.
