  1. Damn... Is the chip on the CPU or Motherboard? (I assume CPU)
  2. Yes, I've used the clear CMOS button on my MB various times. Gonna use my brothers PC tomorrow! I started fresh with a downgraded bios. I got Windows 8 through my school in 2013 then did the free upgrade to windows 10. Even fresh installed straight from windows 10 once before. It was all legit and activated. It just started having these issues in the past two months.
  3. So..... My PC just decided to shutdown every 30 minutes EXACTLY. I've already watched the time several times. Also previously to this issue I was experiencing ME FW update failures (plus downgrade spinlock issues) when I would start my PC. My PC would hang and throw various error code before rebooting itself several times to Windows. My Specs PU - i7 4770k @ 4.5Ghz MotherBoard - Republic of Gamers Maximus 6 Formula RAM - Corsair Vengeance Pro 2133Mhz GPU - ASUS Strix GTX 980 PSU - Corsair AX1200i Case - Corsair Obsidian 900D SSD - Samsung 850 Pro 2TB HDD - WD Black 2TB Mouse - Asus ROG Spatha Keyboard - Asus ROG Gk2000 HORUS Headset - Astro A50s Webcam - Logitech HD C920 1080p Monitor 1 - ROG Swift PG278Q 144Hz 1440P G - Sync Monitor 2 - BENQ XL2420T 120Hz 1080P ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ What I've done... Fresh Windows Install(Good bye steam library on 2TB SSD) BIOS Reflashing: 1603 to 1603 to 1505 Turned off all overclocks What I will do... Swap GPU and PSU into my brothers PC which uses a corsair PSU and has no GPU. I ordered a new BIOS chip for $15 just in case. Positives AX1200i has a 10 year warranty New BIOS chip is cheap. Will update!
  4. You're a Software Engineer, you adapt to what is needed. Sometimes you need to pull a Tony Stark.... Companies should invest more in helping student at least acquire internship over the summer to learn an become capable programmers. It would definitely help in confidence.
  5. You could wait for VEGA, or settle for a 1080p 144hz monitor for now. You can grab a decent one $275.
  6. Just wait for Ryzen R3 CPUs and pair it up with a RX 570/560
  7. Best case scenario... Wait for AMDs 4 core Ryzen R3 processors and pair it up with a R7 470 with 8GB ram.
  8. The disks are called Waffles, errr I mean wafers
  9. I'd hop on this deal now! https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202186
  10. The R3 will make for good budget CPUs if a gamer needs to get 1080p 60fps for less than ~$500. The 4 real cores will fair much better in the long run. SMT and HT sometimes dont play nice with games. Csgo,Overwatch, and LOL player will be more than satisfied for getting a good gaming machine for cheap. Not everyone is gaming with GTX 1080s and 144hz monitors.
  11. Even for gaming you'll still get like 100+ frames with the 1700 + 1080Ti. No reason to worry.
  12. This. I mean R7 series if mainly for content creation. You wouldnt buy a i7 6900k just to game. The R5 series will be a gamer sweet spot for decent CPUs that are under $260 and perform decently for gaming. You can essentially save $100 from buying an i7 7700k and put the $100 towards a stronger GPU. Im interested in the R3 series tho, the entry level gaming PC market needs a decent FULL 4 core CPU, not the hyper threaded i3's
