  1. Well this partition is hidden, so you need to "un-hide" it from DISKPART, and then assign a letter to it. Just so you know : EFI partition is a place for boot files to Windows. So... if you delete it (without placing boot files elsewere), or unplug the drive that has it - you risk your Windows not booting on the next restart.
  2. Get a non-reference GTX 980 Ti. Unless you absolutely need that 12GB of VRAM. GTX 1070 (non-Ti) would be nice to get, BUT that depends on price.
  3. Good job on this one ! Pro tips : #1 Always keep track of Your ca$h #2 Better monitor does not make your skills in game better. Next wars idea : Since it's "trendy" to play old games maxed out, try to do this... Two teams build a Windows XP PCs (you can go x64, but if a test game won't work on it - your team loses that game by default). Plot twist : Higher graphics quality settings are more important than FPS itself (so if one PC uses higher MSAA it wins or get's bonus points). SSAA vs. Resolution/Downsampling ? You can substitute higher resolutution or Downsampling level with SSAA. If both systems use the same settings, higher FPS wins. Benchmarks : 3DMark 01SE (for Lol's ), 3DMark 03, 3DMark 05/06, Heaven Benchmark, PCMark 05. Games : Metro Last Light (NOT Redux), Crysis 1 or Crysis 2, Skyrim, F.E.A.R, GTA IV, Arma 2. ^Listed more than needed just in case. I hope someone from LTT team will find this idea interesting. Have fun and again - great work.
  4. Like said above, use VSR to go for 1440p, and see how it goes. How much you drop (%), depends on game as well (some may drop more than others). In general, increasing resolution is like adding AA, a 100% GPU work (CPU has nothing to do with it). So, assuming GPU has free reasources, it could handle increase in workload without too much of a slowdown.
  5. Did you connect the charger (ie. external power) ?
  6. Check if BIOS settings weren't reset. MB and GPU you are using would be usefull.
  7. Highest is 1GB, but if your board/CPU supports ECC Reg you can go up to 4GB/DIMM (server memory).
  8. Good. Windows Boot Manager is always what you should see when you do NVMe installation and that is what should be picked from boot options. No further tweaking needed.
  9. You can try forcing EFI booting and UEFI stuff first on CSM (or switching CSM off altogether), BUT if Windows installer was launched in Legacy mode - that NVMe probably won't be bootable.
  10. UEFI booting, usually means GPT drive (or hidden partition with EFI boot sector/partition on said drive).
  11. For Audigy 2 : 1 - Analog Ground 2 - Analog Headphone Out Left 3 - Audio Backpanel Mute -- short to ground to mute the backpanel (when headphones are plugged in) 4 - Analog Headphone Out Right 5 - same as #3 6 - Mic input from front panel 7 - key pin (shouldn't be there) 8 - VREF out -- voltage reference for Mic 9 - MIC IN MUTE -- ground when mic isn't plugged in, +12VDC when mic is plugged in 10 - Audio cable detect -- will be ground when headphones are plugged in (not normally used) Pin 1 is furthest from the bracket.

  13. Something like this : LINK. Based on Intel AC 8260 card. For 10$ more you can get AX capable one from Gigabyte : LINK (no Windows 7/8 support).
  14. Pretty sure 1x on chipset doesn't have enough throughput for 10G network to work at 10G (unless it's PCI-e 4.0 card).
