  1. Going off the spec sheets, the one you linked should work fine. It claims up to 22 pounds per arm, your monitors are ~10 pounds each. That said, I don't have a lot of experience with the table-top arms -- I have a dual mount desk-clamp type arm because I also wanted to free up some more space on my desk. Is there a reason you're not looking at desk clamp arms?
  2. FYI, Nvidia limited board partners to the reference design for the 690, like the more recent Titan series cards.
  3. If you can't find one locally on Craigslist (or whatever else), paying through the nose on ebay is basically your only choice. Working examples of the good 30 or 40 series boards are almost 10 years old now, after all.
  4. I've been running two monitors off my GTX 570 and another one off my motherboard for a while without issue. As long as you make sure the integrated graphics is enabled in the BIOS and you download and install the Intel graphics driver you shouldn't have any problems.
  5. I believe you just do Windows 10. Your key should determine which version, Pro or "regular", is actually downloaded.
  6. H61 was originally launched in early 2011, so Windows vista and 7 were the latest versions so they were advertising those. It should run 8 or 10 no problem, although I can't recommend a BIOSTAR board from that era.
  7. I'm not sure upping voltages would help. My system has posted every single time without issue no matter the ram configuration. Windows boot seems to hang with all 32gb installed. It might be worth a try tho. That's good to know. I am running stock clocks. Haven't run an overclock in years actually. Don't need an overclock to run matlab and eclipse after all
  8. So that sounds like a consequence of me hard resetting. Well thank you so much for the help. I'm going to leave this for now and hopefully I'll hear back from the support ticket tomorrow or the day after.
  9. There's a critical error in there, twice in the last hours, which seems like it could be each time in the last hour i've tried booting with all 32gb in there. The error is: Event ID: 41 Source: Kernal-Power Log: System EDIT: Although that could be me hard resetting it too I suppose.
  10. Disabling fast boot did not have any affect on booting with all 32gb installed, unfortunately. I still can't get around how much this feels like a windows issue though. Like booting just slows to a crawl with this ram config for some reason.
  11. I am using quick boot, I just disabled it, trying it now.
  12. hmm, well if worst comes to worse I do have an extra windows 10 key that I'm not currently using, I'd just really like to not do that of course. Also I will add that windows wouldn't even let me in safe mode with all 4 sticks installed. It just hung at the logo and spinny circle. I put in a support ticket with gigabyte to see if they have any help. I might try updating to the latest bios version.
  13. And three sticks works just fine for 24GB... I'm not sure what to try here at this point.
  14. Yes, manually set the timings to what they're rated for, 9-9-9-24. Also tried 10-10-10-27 and no beans. Currently trying with three sticks. And the ram timings are exactly what the old kit was so. I've found a couple other threads around the internet with this issue, windows 10 upgrading to 32gb ram on the Z68 chipset, and none of them have posted solutions so... Here's some of the other links if anyone is interested: http://www.tenforums.com/general-support/39274-ram-upgrade-32gb-windows-10-wont-start.html http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2668880/upgraded-20gb-32gb-ram-fully-boot.html http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2871849/windows-boot-32gb-ram.html
  15. Just swapped in the other two modules, and booted straight into windows without any problems. I might be missing some bios setting that could be useful here, I'll have to dig deeper - at least after I swap to the other pair of slots to make sure they work. EDIT: Yep, the other two slots work just fine. So at this point I know that (at least for experimentation purposes) all four slots and all four modules are working. Going to dig through the bios now.
